Postcatastrophe Economy: Rebuilding America and Avoiding the Next Bubble


Postcatastrophe Economy: Rebuilding America and Avoiding the Next Bubble Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

How bad will the current recession get? According to Eric Janszen, we could be facing an unemployment rate of over 10 percent; half of all retail stores boarded up; skeletons of unfinished buildings in our cities; and tax revenues down by 30 percent, leading to big cuts in government services. Meanwhile, inflation will keep rising as the Fed is forced to devalue the dollar because foreign countries won't lend to us anymore.

Sounds grim, but the good news is that this crisis will open the door to a saner economic future if we recognize the opportunity to correct decades of bad policy. America can wean itself from the debt-financed growth of the past thirty years and restructure to grow based on old-fashioned savings and investment.

Janszen shows that the key is not more big government but deploying our unique capacity for innovation through private-public partnerships. He calls for a modern New Deal that develops twenty-first century industries such as biotechnology, alternative energy, and nanotechnology. And he shows how our financial markets can adapt to make it happen.

This is an essential book for everyone who is struggling to understand our current predicament.


Financial expert Eric Janszen shows how government and business can work together to secure our economic future.

About the Author

Eric Janszen is a financial analyst with more than two decades' experience in the technology industry as an executive and venture capitalist. In 1998, he founded a financial analysis company that has had an amazingly accurate record of predictions. He wrote an acclaimed cover story for Harper's about economic bubbles and is now a regular contributor to the magazine's Web site. John Pruden is a professional voice actor who records audiobooks, corporate and online training narrations, animation and video game characters, and radio and TV commercials. His exposure to many people, places, and experiences throughout his life-from his wide array of jobs early in life; to his Army service as a UH-60 Black Hawk assault helicopter pilot; to his travels through forty-four U.S. states, South America, Europe, and Asia; to his experience in professional improv and competitive singing-provides a solid creative foundation from which to draw for his intelligent audiobook narrations and gritty but sensitive vocal characterizations. His audiobooks include The Sisters Brothers by Patrick deWitt, which was chosen by the Washington Post as the best audiobook of 2011.
