Stephen and Donna provide a clear information picture amidst the daily noise of buy's and hold's. I can now see the forest instead of the trees. It gives me the insight to hedge against coming inflation woes. I deplored that the book offered mainly US investment options.

Authors Stephen and Donna Leeb present a compelling futuristic investment scenario that leaves you thinking, 'You know, they just may be right.' Their approach avoids the sky-is-falling, bus-rushing-toward-the-precipice breathlessness that is common to many books that predict impending doom and gloom. The authors escape slipping on that particular patch of oil by basing their conclusions on established facts and keen analysis. For example, they rely on the widely accepted principle of Hubbert's Law when they assert that worldwide oil production will soon begin to decline. That's hardly news, but they take it a step further. They predict rising oil prices will spur inflation and the Fed will be unable to jack up interest rates to dampen it. High consumer indebtedness and the profound need to keep home values high (which props up consumer spending - the real engine that fuels American prosperity) will render the vaunted Fed feckless. Is it true? Well, about once a decade an Armageddon-is-coming book emerges that ought to be read by every investor, if only so that you know enough about what might happen to dodge it. We say this may be the one. One thing is clear regarding the global economic engine: it's time to check the oil.
