Excerpt from Beyond the Great Recession:
Although a lot has been written and said about the Great Recession, it is still the greatest story never
told. It has all the elements of a tragedy—greed, irony, fear. It also has heroes racing against time to
prevent global destruction. There is a tinge of science fiction, as weird monsters like credit default
swaps mushroomed beyond the control of their masters, and zombies like LIBOR rose from the dead
again and again. Most important, it’s a true tale that impacts your wallet, your job and your home.
You’ve heard the phrase “No pain, no gain.” Well, you’ve already felt the pain. Learn from it, and you’ll
get the gain. Find out what really caused the Great Recession, and you’ll see how to move beyond it.
Oh, and here’s another little known secret. You can make just as much money in a down economy as
an up one … if you know what to do and when to do it. You’ve heard them say “Knowledge is power.”
What they haven’t told you is knowledge is power only when it’s put into action. That’s why we’ll walk
through what happened, how it affects you and what you can do about it. That’s how to be, as they
say, upbeat in a down economy. Or, how to be, as I say, sparkling in a flat economy.
