About The Real Crash
What we’ve experienced in the aftermath of the Global Financial Crisis/Great Recession, Peter Schiff argues in The Real Crash, is a government-inflated bubble.
And that bubble will burst with disastrous consequences for the U.S. economy.
How you as an individual investor prepare for what’s to come will determine whether you survive or suffer amid American Armageddon.
The simple fact is that the response to the last crash was exactly the opposite of what was required to revive the American economy.
We spent our way out of it under the guise of “stimulus” - but that only made the hole deeper.
The U.S. government spends too much money and doesn’t collect enough revenue to pay its debts.
That hard truth has dire consequences for Americans from all walks of life.
The first problem is that the entire premise of our currency - backed by the full faith and credit of the United States - is false.
Our current path leads to a currency and sovereign debt crisis that will utterly destroy our economy and impoverish the vast majority of our citizens - American Armageddon.
An immediate course correction will result in significant short-term pain.
However, the long-term gain will be durable economic and financial health for the country of your children’s and your children’s children’s future.
Avoiding American Armageddon means drastically cutting government spending and reducing the number of intrusive federal regulatory departments and agencies.
We must also pull back from costly foreign adventurism and wars of choice - we must return to the Constitutional paradigm based on “defense” spending versus “military” spending.
True limited government means no more student loan or mortgage interest deductions, no more drug wars, and no more bank and other industry bailouts.
To avoid American Armageddon, we should declare bankruptcy, restructure our debts, and reform our system from the ground up.
The Real Crash explains how we got into this mess, how we might get out of it, and what happens if we don’t.
And, with wisdom born from having predicted the Crash of 2008, Peter Schiff explains how to protect yourself, your family, your money, and your country from American Armageddon.
