  • Given the accuracy of their first book's predictions, you have to be worried that their second book could very well be right. Be prepared and read this book.

    Philip Gross, Co-founder and former CFO, America Online

  • Aftershock makes a compelling argument for a chilling conclusion. Their track record demands our attention.

    Sam Stovall, Chief Investment Strategist, Standard & Poor's

  • The fragility of today's economy demands that we, as investors, allocate our assets with more prudence and focus than ever before. The authors' prescience in their first book lends credence to their new warnings. This book deserves our attention.

    Robert Friedman, Former CFO, Goldman Sachs

  • Aftershock is a superb exegesis of how our damaged economy is in for further difficulties. Since the authors hedge their predictions not at all, a second event in which they will have been proven correct will lead to a very special stature.

    Stanley Goldstein, Founder, New York Hedge Fund Roundtable

Recovery? What Recovery?

Did you lose money in the financial crisis of 2008? Or the rollercoaster ride of summer 2011? Did you receive some poor financial investment advice? Are you "underwater" in your mortgage or your home has lost value? Do your dollars buy less at the grocery store and the gas pump? Are you worried about the safety of your money, job, and investments?

Don't Get Fooled Again!

This is no recovery. And this is no "down cycle" that will soon be followed by a reliable "up cycle." This is a big, multi-bubble pop and it’s far from over. In our first book, America’s Bubble Economy (Wiley, 2006), we warned you about the coming domino fall of the linked real estate, stock, and private debt bubbles that eventually led to the financial crisis of 2008. In Aftershock (Wiley, 2009), our financial investment advice revealed how the worst is still ahead, as the bubbles continue to fall and the two final bubbles, dollar and huge government debt bubbles, pop. Now our latest book, The Aftershock Investor (Wiley, 2012) offers the definitive look at 2013 and beyond – and what investors can do right now to protect themselves.


It's Not Too Late

For those who act quickly and correctly, there is still time to protect yourself, your family, and your business in the coming Aftershock. Other money management books may talk about the last financial crisis and warn of more troubles ahead, but only Aftershock has the proven track record of precisely predicting these events over many years, and more importantly only Aftershock shows you what to do right now to protect yourself before it's too late.

Rising Interest Rates: Is the Bond Bubble Popping?

Updated 12/28/2010

Interest rates are up more than 1% in the last month on both long and short term bonds, pushing mortgage rates up and bond prices down. Is the bond bubble popping? We see two possible scenarios: Either investors believe that the economy is finally turning around and therefore higher demand for credit will drive up interest rates; or investors are beginning to worry that inflation is on its way due to massive money printing by the Fed (QE1 and QE2), and the bond bubble is about to pop.

We think the first scenario is more likely. If so, the euphoric feeling won’t last and interest rates will eventually decline. More importantly, we think the Fed will buy even more bonds to keep interest rates from rising much further. However, it is also possible that the Fed is starting to lose control over interest rates due to growing inflation expectations among investors and rising perceived risk in federal government debt. We know this will happen eventually, the only question is when. One reason we don’t think it is happening now is that if inflation expectations were rising rapidly, we would see gold rising as well, which is not currently happening.

So is the bond bubble starting to pop? We will know in the next month or two. Please sign up now for your Aftershock Investors Resource Package so we can tell you more about bonds, stocks, gold, currencies, real estate, the dollar, China, European debt, popping bubbles, and other Aftershock issues.
