Alarmist and way off track in its predictions. Of the nearly dozen books I've read on the Great Recession, which has become a big interest, I have increasingly been evaluating my reads based on the accuracy of predictions. This one and another by "gold will be $5000 in 2015" Peter Schiff have been the farthest off track. Just as the best books I've read had their errors, I do share a couple concerns (ex. US overall debt when rates do go up) with the authors, overall their predictions 5 years later have proven to be ridiculously far off.

Example - 2015 initial inflation rate was listed as 0.1% but the authors projected a minimum 10% by now.

The other similarity to Schiff's book was that they are selling something (services in this book, gold in Schiff's book). The more academic and investigative (versus accusative) books are much better reads than this dramatically flawed book.

Ha! Is this even a real book? Don't waste your time -- like I did.

The authors' theory hinges on higher interest rates in the US due to inflation being driven by money printing from Quantitative Easing. However money flows to its highest rate of return, so the QE money flowed to Southeast Asia and created inflation there, not in the US. The Japanese, leading the G20, attempted to induce inflation in spring 2013 and instantly tanked their stock market! They had to back off and are stuck with a deflationary spiral. The book does not apply to Canada and our bonds and economy are doing fine compared to the US and EU.
