The current housing/lending crisis in America; the trigger for the following global economic crash/ depression since 2008; an economic analysis of what we should do now:Economic Analysis of Law. 1. Auflage Thomas J. Zierer
For a while, it seemed impossible to lose money on real estate. But then the bubble burst. The financial sector was paralyzed and the economy contracted. State and federal governments struggled to pay their domestic and foreign creditors. Washington was incapable of decisive action. The country seethed with political and social unrest. In America´s First Great Depression, Alasdair Roberts describes how the United States dealt with the economic and political crisis that followed the Panic of 1837. As Roberts shows, the two decades that preceded the Panic had marked a democratic surge in the United States. However, the nation´s commitment to democracy was tested severely during this crisis. Foreign lenders questioned whether American politicians could make the unpopular decisions needed on spending and taxing. State and local officials struggled to put down riots and rebellion. A few wondered whether this was the end of America´s democratic experiment. Roberts explains how the country´s woes were complicated by its dependence on foreign trade and investment, particularly with Britain. Aware of the contemporary relevance of this story, Roberts examines how the country responded to the political and cultural aftershocks of 1837, transforming its political institutions to strike a new balance between liberty and social order, and uneasily coming to terms with its place in the global economy. The book is published by Cornell University Press. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Kevin Young. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/acx0/007459/bk_acx0_007459_sample.mp3.

Understanding the Great Depression and Failures of Modern Economic Policy:The Story of the Heedless Giant Dan Blatt
The Current Economic Crisis and the Great Depression: Philip S. Salisbury
There is a global economic crisis going on. The federal reserve and the central banks of the world are printing more and more money, and the United States government keeps spending more and more money. This debases the currency, and your purchasing power is being diminished because there is too much money in circulation chasing too few goods. The end result of this madness? Inflation and rising prices. Then to add insult to injury, taxes are being raised in all sectors of the economy which further steals your wealth. So if inflation (the stealth tax), the diminishing dollar, and an increase in taxes are the enemies of your wealth, how do you defeat these treacherous enemies? According to author Omar Johnson, you do it by investing in gold and silver. In The Complete Guide to Investing in Gold and Silver: Surviving the Great Economic Depression, he gives you the education you need to prosper as a gold and silver investor. You will be enlightened about gold and silver´s history, their performance over time, the ways to invest in them, and the potential pitfalls. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Omar Johnson.

Did you know that the unemployment rate between 1933 and 1934 was one in four people?The stock market crash of 1929 didn’t cause the Great Depression by itself, but it is a powerful symbolic starting point to the greatest economic disaster of the 20th century. On that dark day in October 1929, fortunes were lost, and fear of financial insecurity rose throughout the United States and the world. In 1932, the low point of the Depression, as much as a third of Americans were out of work, and even more people were unemployed in other countries. The stock market reached its lowest point ever and wouldn’t rise to its pre-Depression levels for almost 20 years.The scale of the crisis demanded new ways of coping and new ideas about the role of government.

A controversial look at the impending Chinese economic collapse - the history behind it, its contemporary causes, and its dire implications for the global economy. All the experts agree: The 21st century belongs to China. Given America´s looming insolvency and the possibility of the collapse of the U.S. dollar, who can doubt that China is poised to take over the role of economic superpower? Written by political economist and leading financial journalist James Gorrie, this audiobook offers a highly controversial, contrarian view of contemporary China. Drawing upon a wealth of historical and up-to-the-minute data, Gorrie makes a strong case that China, itself, is on the verge of an economic crisis of epic proportions. He explains how, caught in a recurrent boom/bust cycle that has played itself out several times over the past sixty years, China is again approaching total economic and social collapse. But with one important difference this time: They may very well take the entire global economy down with them. Explores the Chinese communist party´s unfortunate history of making costly and very bloody mistakes on an enormous scale One-by-one Gorrie analyzes those critical mistakes and explains how they may lead to economic collapse in China and global depression Describes Chinese ´´cannibal capitalism,´´ and where its massive abuse of the country´s environment, people, and arable lands is leading that country and the world economy Chronicles China´s history of recurring economic crisis and explains why all the evidence suggests that history is about to repeat itself 1.

For over two decades, author Khafra K Om-Ra-Seti has been closely following many of the issues discussed in Global Economic Boom and Bust Cycles. As a self-proclaimed futurist and economic thinker, Khafra sees a world bordering on economic calamity but also understands that our world has the technological genius to create the conditions for a massive transformation after a period of purgatory. In biblical terms, the author informs us, ´´No one knows the hour or the day when the final reckoning will begin.´´ The central thesis of this book is to examine the power and massive influence of Boom and Bust Cycles on a global scale; a parallel mission is to also examine elements, technologies and systems that will give rise to a new era during our next recovery phase. 1.
