We all know we have seen the end of an era, and now we have courtside seats to watch the Endgame unfold. We are watching the end of Act I: The Debt Supercycle. Now we will get to see how Act II: The Endgame plays out. - John Mauldin & Jonathan Tepper (Chapter 1)

Hundreds of books have been written about the financial crisis that engulfed the world after Lehman Brothers went bankrupt. But what if the bigger financial crisis is ahead of us, not behind us? As John Mauldin and Jonathan Tepper deftly illustrate in this controversial audio book, the crisis was more than a half-century in the making. The Great Financial Crisis, however, was merely Act I. Act II has now begun.

The massive household deleveraging and historic shift of private debt onto government balance sheets now underway all over the world represents the end of a 60-year global Debt Supercycle. We have now entered the Endgame, a time when bankruptcies and defaults (disguised as restructuring) will not be of households and companies but of governments. The stakes are now higher. The coming crises will offer policymakers few good choices and many bad ones. It will require extraordinary clarity and courage from leaders, courage that so far is largely completely lacking. Yet, despite the authors' dark forecast, the message in Endgame is not all gloom and doom. The book lays out positive steps governments can take to weather the worst of the stormy days ahead, minimize the inevitable pain and discomfort most of us can expect to experience, and chart a bold new course to sustained economic growth and prosperity. It also offers investors an abundance of useful analysis and expert advice on how to protect their assets during the worst of it and prosper from the many new opportunities that will emerge globally as they present themselves.

In Part 2, the authors take listeners on a country-by-country tour - including the United States, UK, European countries, and Japan - clearly explaining... Download and start listening now!

    " Mauldin is a master of making the complex palatable. In Endgame, he often shares conversations between himself and his many (mostly adopted) children about the mind-numbing macro events in the world today, because if he can make them understand, readers should get the gist. Considering the subject matter, Mauldin succeeds more than most in making global fiscal and monetary trends comprehensible. His take is pessimistic, but the arguments are well-researched, quantitatively supported, and often undeniable. Unlike some doomsayers, Mauldin and the co-author show optimism by offering solutions to seemingly unsolvable problems, but the medicine will be bitter. Most adults would benefit from the economic understanding Endgame provides, although a novice to economic study might occasionally find the text dense. "

    " Excellent analysis. Can be dry but it IS accessible and clear. "

    " Mauldin and Tepper have written a truly important book on the economc situation facing the USA and most of the world. While filled with data, curves and forecsts, this book is readable and important for all concerned citizens. We, the US and the World, are on the brink of a major disaster, a disaster that can be controlled, if not prevented, by proper and careful political actions. The path the USA is on at present gives little hope for mitigation--let's pray for a new cadre of politicians who understand what is needed and implementthose actions. "

    " A must read for better understanding on why the financial whoas in Greece are a big freaking deal here in the us. Definitely an eye opener on how world economies work. "

    " Maudlin's letters are gold and this was a great way for new readers to get a big picture take on his macroeconomic thinking. Scary stuff, but abundant evidence makes an impression. Interesting that he comes down on the non-hyperinflation side for the US. Hope so... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jim Bowers | 11/7/2013

    " A very detailed account of the world's economic and growing debt crisis. Very technical. It would help to have studied economic theory in advance. Many statistics, charts and graphs. If you can get through it, a very enlighten view of our problems and how to fix them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Craig | 10/23/2013

    " Cuts through the noise in the media to show what is going to happen after 60 years of taking on more debt than can ever be paid back. Excellent strategies for protecting your assets when the inevitable crash happens - in the near future. "

    " Good, sobering book on the possible resolutions of the Euro debt crisis and fallout from the US' own 2008 debt crisis. Should be part of the conversation for policy makers. "
