Empire of Debt: The Rise Of An Epic Financial Crisis
Empire of Debt reunites the team that conceived the international bestseller Financial Reckoning Day, and is the first in-depth look at how Americans abandoned their sound traditions of economic freedom, personal liberty, and fiscal restraint, favoring instead government control of the economy, unfettered deficit spending, gluttonous consumption, and fearless military adventurism, all of which have ravaged the business environment, devastated personal balance sheets, and led the global economy to the brink of its greatest financial crisis ever. Empire of Debt argues there will be a dramatic change in the economic power of the United States in the coming years that will inevitably impact every American. Understanding these trends is critical for a wide range of readers, from lawmakers and corporate leaders to individual investors seeking the safest places to invest their retirement funds. Despite all this, the authors’ irreverent style is entertaining as they manage to find humor in an otherwise precarious financial situation.
