When Dr. Stephen Leeb speaks, smart investors take heed. In his previous books, Dr. Leeb predicted the great bull market of the 1990s and the collapse of technology shares in the new millennium. Now, in The Coming Economic Collapse, Dr. Leeb shows that the US economy is standing on the brink of the biggest crisis in history. As the fast-growing economies of China and India push global demand for oil beyond production capacity, Americans will experience a permanent energy shortfall far worse than the one in the 1970s. The result will be severe financial hardship for most people, and once in a lifetime opportunities for investors to become incredibly rich. This is an urgent call-to-arms to avert an all-but-certain catastrophe and a survival kit for an era that offers us only two financial choices: poverty or wealth.

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Claire | 5/3/2013

    " The author's overall conclusions are spot-on, but like most financial advice books, this ship has already sailed. He spends some time recommending that everyone go back to 2004-2005 and read and follow the advice in his first book. I found this both amusing and frustrating. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Derek | 4/22/2013

    " not a good prognosis if things don't change in regards to leadership and their priorities "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paul Irvine | 7/19/2012

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jay | 6/28/2012

    " Excellent book, very accurate and foretelling. The book was written in 2006, I read it in 2008 when basically the stuff was happening that they predicted. Except that oil never reached $200, but was well over $100, they pretty much had it nailed. "
