But in the fall of 2008 a curtain briefly opened during the financial crisis, and the world saw for the first time the insiders behind the Wall Street Machine: investment bankers betting the house with your money, politicians looking out after financial insiders, and an economy built on an abyss of bad debt.
The 2008 financial crisis also revealed the real growth engine behind the U.S. economy. The prosperity of America over the past forty years was not built on the solid ground of production and savings, which made the U.S. dollar the world's reserve currency, but on debt, consumption, and the unprecedented expansion of credit. During this time, the United States transitioned from the world's largest creditor nation to the world's largest debtor nation.
This economic anomaly of holding the world's reserve currency as the largest debtor nation has allowed the United States keep spending for imports, taxpayer benefits, bank bailouts, a series of wars, and insider payments while maintaining the illusion of wealth and prosperity.
But all of that is about to change.
Now, with its production base offshored and an economy dependent on debt and consumption, the U.S. is entering the early stages of an even greater financial storm.
This book will show you the truth about the U.S. economy, the dollar, and how to prepare and even prosper in the coming economic collapse.
