Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Peter D. Schiff has fully revised and updated his provocative New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestseller The Real Crash. First published in 2012, The Real Crash argues that America is enjoying a government-inflated bubble, one that reality will explode... with disastrous consequences for the economy and for each of us.

Since 2012, what has happened with our economy? The stock market continues its illusory gains, the Fed "tapers" while some jobs return, and yet the fundamental threat to our way of life has only grown worse — much, much worse. The United States government nearly defaulted on its debts and the solution was to raise the debt limit — to spend yet more money, to go even deeper in hock to China, and to burden every American with obligations that are impossible to repay.

With incisive analysis and expert financial understanding, Peter D. Schiff reveals that the road we're on will lead to an abrupt devaluation of our currency and a crash that will upend our power, our political system, and our way of life. This new edition of The Real Crash includes more than 35,000 new words of text, which cover:

-The 2013 government shutdown, the debt crisis, and how the solution only dug a deeper hole

-The IRS political auditing scandal and why the average American should care

-What will happen when the government stops inflating the stock and real estate market bubbles

-How Detroit's bankruptcy mirrors our national situation: too many promises, not enough revenue

To avoid complete collapse, America must drastically reduce government spending, and regulations that drain businesses and suppress economic growth, eliminate costly and unnecessary agencies, stop foreign military escapades, and cut entitlements of all kinds for all classes of people. And, with wisdom born from having predicted the Crash of 2008, Peter D. Schiff explains how to protect yourself, your family, your money, and your country from the even greater crash that lies ahead.

Synopsis:

You might be thinking everything's okay: the stock market is on the rise, jobs are growing, the worst of it is over.

You'd be wrong.

In The Real Crash, New York Times bestselling author Peter D. Schiff argues that America is enjoying a government-inflated bubble, one that reality will explode... with disastrous consequences for the economy and for each of us. Schiff demonstrates how the infusion of billions of dollars of stimulus money has only dug a deeper hole: the United States government simply spends too much and does not collect enough money to pay its debts, and in the end, Americans from all walks of life will face a crushing consequence.

We're in hock to China, we can't afford the homes we own, and the entire premise of our currency — backed by the full faith and credit of the United States — is false. Our system is broken, Schiff says, and there are only two paths forward. The one were on now leads to a currency and sovereign debt crisis that will utterly destroy our economy and impoverish the vast majority of our citizens.

However, if we change course, the road ahead will be a bit rockier at first, but the final destination will be far more appealing. If we want to avoid complete collapse, we must drastically reduce government spending — eliminate entire agencies, end costly foreign military escapades and focus only on national defense — and stop student loan or mortgage interest deductions, as well as drug wars and bank-and-business bailouts. We must also do what no politician or pundit has proposed: America should declare bankruptcy, restructure its debts, and reform our system from the ground up.

Persuasively argued and provocative, The Real Crash explains how we got into this mess, how we might get out of it, and what happens if we don't. And, with wisdom born from having predicted the Crash of 2008, Peter Schiff explains how to protect yourself, your family, your money, and your country against what he predicts.
