Overview

Greece isn't the only country drowning in debt. The Debt Supercycle—when the easily managed, decades-long growth of debt results in a massive sovereign debt and credit crisis—is affecting developed countries around the world, including the United States. For these countries, there are only two options, and neither is good—restructure the debt or reduce it through austerity measures. Endgame details the Debt Supercycle and the sovereign debt crisis, and shows that, while there are no good choices, the worst choice would be to ignore the deleveraging resulting from the credit crisis. The book:

  • Reveals why the world economy is in for an extended period of sluggish growth, high unemployment, and volatile markets punctuated by persistent recessions
  • Reviews global markets, trends in population, government policies, and currencies

Around the world, countries are faced with difficult choices. Endgame provides a framework for making those choices.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
In Endgame: The End of the Debt Supercycle and How It Changes Everything, Mauldin and Tepper pull no punches and get directly the point. ...Endgame is a veritable trip around the world, as Mauldin lays out the uncomfortable choices facing nearly every major country. While Mauldin’s analysis of the American debt problem is sobering, his comments on Europe are downright frightening…Given the noise dominating the newswires, it is refreshing to find clear, coherent thinking. Our compliments to Messrs. Mauldin and Tepper on a job well done.”
Charles Sizemore, HS Dent Research Analyst and Editor of the Sizemore Investment Letter

John Mauldin is neither a pessimist nor a market/political cheerleader. "Endgame" simply explains the political and sociological processes that have led America and the world to the difficult economic place that we find ourselves in. It is becoming evident to almost everyone that difficult fincancial decisons must be made at every level; from federal, state and local governments to businesses, individuals and families. "Endgame" makes it clear that there are no easy, pain-free choices remaining but that the worst course of action would be to try to continue "business as usual". Far from being just another expose of failed policies, "Endgame" provides both educational insight into economics and policy and potential courses of action that politicians and individuals may choose and possible results of these actions. If you care about your financial future, you'll want to read "Endgame" more than once!

Amid all the postmortems of the 2008 recession, this might be the bleakest. Financial gurus John Mauldin and Jonathan Tepper argue persuasively that no quick recovery is on the horizon. Instead, the world’s economies face years, perhaps decades, of tepid growth, roller-coaster markets and high unemployment. The authors combine their analysis with research from a variety of economists to reach the conclusion that deficits will continue to grow and politicians will continue to avoid making hard decisions. While their rambling reasoning is sometimes disjointed and their analysis presents nothing startlingly new, Mauldin and Tepper make an informed case that investors, consumers, managers and policy makers need to prepare for a rocky future that’s nothing like the comparatively easy years of the recent past. getAbstract recommends this sobering look at the future as important reading for those who want to follow the full spectrum of analysis.

"Takes a very complex subject & makes it reasonably understandable. Bottom line: There is no way the world economy (or the US economy) can possibly get better for any significant amount of time, without first getting worse. The only question is how much worse. Will we make the tough decisions to immediately accept and minimize the pain? Or will we make the politically easier decisions to procrastinate and thereby increase the ultimate pain?"

The text is fine bur due to the nature of the book (finance) there are quite a few charts & graphs that are almost impossible to read. I will probably have to buy the hard copy so I can get the information.

J. Mauldin clearly describes how and why the current world-wide economic challenges with debt are different from the business recessions endured over the past 60 years, and what you can do to protect your portfolios.

I sure can't decide anything about this book based on the 1 line "sample." 23 pages. Supposedly. But when that includes a table of contents, an acknowledgement, etc, etc, there is no sampling. Based on this I can't buy the book.
