Overview

We are at a crossroads ofimmense proportions. Nationally,internationally, and globally, we are living in a manner that is absolutely, unconditionally, irrevocably unsustainable. Our global economic stability is in jeopardy, our planet's ecosystems are under attack, and our health is deteriorating. Huge changes are coming whether or not we want them, whether or not we are ready for them. How can we lead the charge to introduce innovations and solutions to meet the inevitable challenges of new kinds of economic forces? Damon Vickers believes that by anticipating social trends and detecting potentially profitable areasfor investing, we might still be able to profit whilesupporting a sustainable future.

In The Day After the Dollar Crashes, Vickers presents a possible time line for the crash of the U.S. dollar and the subsequent collapse of global markets. He outlines the New World Order that may take shape over the next decade and the impact it could have on nations, businesses, and individuals. Perhaps more importantly, he tells how investors can weather the coming economic collapse and position themselves for the coming global transformation. By changing our expectations and taking action to get in alignment with reality, Vickers shows, we can steadily profit in our investments. He suggests both globally sustainable and socially responsible types of investments, including investing in currencies of countries that are backed by real assets like resources and technologies that expand our sustainable energy and food sources.

The time for denial and waiting for someone else to fix everything is over. It is up to us, each and every one of us, to wake up and start to make more responsible choices as we enter a New World Order. This book will show us how.

    Disappointed

    Like many who bought this book, I was made aware of it and Mr. Vickers by seeing him on the Glenn Beck program. Beck devoted an entire program to illustrating what could happen in the days leading up to and following the collapse of the US dollar. It was an intriguing thought experiment, but a lot of details were glossed over during the show, which I chalked up to the realities of television and guessed that the book would provide the detailed analysis that was missing from the broadcast.

    The chapter on the actual dollar collapse is a scant 20 1/2 pages, with generous margins, font size, and spacing reminiscent of some last minute college papers. I now understand why the broadcast was devoid of further analysis--there wasn't any more depth in the printed material. I wasn't looking for a detailed personal economic survival strategy, but a well-thought out wargame experiment by someone with the knowledge and experience to make realistic projections.

    Mr. Vickers' timeline progression (which spans only 5 pages) waffles between the macro and the minutiae, some realistic, some ridiculous. But at the end of it all it still doesn't answer the questions everyone has: "And then what? And what does it mean for me?"

    If my only issue with the book had been its failure to deliver on its basic premise, I may have given it 3 or 3 1/2 stars. Unfortunately, I continued reading after Chapter 6 and was treated to Mr. Vickers' flight of fancy comprised of a sophomoric mixture of liberal internationalism, environmentalism, post-modernism, and post-nationalism all glued together with the author's Buddhist sense of "oneness."

    The second half of the book begins with describing the resultant New World Order after the dollar collapses. While this rises above the typical conspiracy theory boilerplate of secret societies, world governance, and one currency for the world, it seemed very unimaginative. It took me awhile to determine if the author was warning against this or parodying it, until I realized he actually was espousing this as a plan so that "we can truly start to live on this planet in harmony and embody John Lennon's dream for people to live as one (p. 124)."

    As I read the last chapters I realized I was the victim of a bait and switch. I was reeled in by a scary thought experiment of the US dollar crashing, but instead, was served a platter of The World According to Vickers. Topics range from the environment, antibiotics, holistic medicine, genetically modified foods, hydrofracking (a process used in mining natural gas, and apparently especially disdained by Mr. Vickers by its several mentions throughout the book), hormones, pesticides, BPA, factory farming, fossil fuels, alternate fuels, oceanic acidification, and recycling.

    Perhaps the most tragic flaw in his argument of a global central government creating supranational policies to deal with (ironically) the size of individual states' governments, emergency response, monetary policy, currency transactions, sustainable resource management, and protect cultural identities is his own distrust of governmental bureaucrats in regards to health care: "The entire medical profession should be involved in restructuring this system and not leave it to our government bureaucrats, who have repeatedly proven their lack of understanding of anything having to do with money, war, food, business, the environment, or health (p. 160)."

    Please skip this book

    Very poorly written . A book about numbers should have accurate numbers ? No such luck here . Example there are 53.5 million folks on Social Security not 7.7 million. Many , many other silly mistakes . He drones on and on about global warming . He owns a private jet , need I say more?
    Don't let the Glenn Beck endorsement fool you . This guy is Very far left . Clearly Mr. Beck did not read the book.

    Highly Recommended

    This book is 95% accurate, and should be circulated throughout the United States and World for all to read!! Rarely does a Non-Fiction, survival guide, economic predicator, touch the heart of it's reader. You have touched my heart, and have earned my upmost respect.

    A big disappointment

    I was very disappointed. On page 84 the author states "While WWII was raging, the United States until the very end when we rode in to save the day" After that, everything he wrote seemed hypocritical. he insists we crowd into cities yet he commutes 40 miles each way. He also seems to be naive. He seems to think a new world order will be different than the one we have now.

    Lacks any original thought.

    Vickers must have cut and pasted from over the internet; Then re-wrote the words into his own.
    Glen Beck must have had a little too much drink before writing his review.

    Not Worth It !!!

    Check out his website, he only manages accounts with balances over $500,000! Doubt that most of his suggestions for preparing for the dollar crash will help the small guy. But if your are Warren Buffet, he's got a service for you!

    Crash

    A wake up call? Reality check? Very interesting theory, just hoping it doesn't get put to the test.
