Posterity may remember The Dollar Crisis as a seminal book in the field of 21st century economics. Indeed, rarely has a book offered such a grim yet, well argued view of the current economic situation facing the world.-- Steven Irvine, FinanceAsia Duncan writes like a man who?s already seen tomorrow. -- James Grant, Grant?s Interest Rate Observer I held a class for about 150 people on the book entitled "The Dollar Crisis," authored by Richard Duncan. If you want to better understand why the real estate bubble bust and the crash of the dollar will probably lead to a prolonged recession, you may want to read this book sooner rather than later. In a nutshell, we really do not have a real estate bubble... the world is in a currency bubble. In other words, the governments of the world have printed too much "funny" money and cash will soon turn to trash. Even if you are not in real estate or are saving dollars, you may want to read this book to find out what you need to invest in now, before the bubble bursts. If you are in stocks and mutual funds, you definitely want to read this book.-- Robert Kiyosaki, author of Rich Dad, Poor Dad I would like every one of my subscribers to click on to Amazon.com and buy a new book that has just been published entitled, ?The Dollar Crisis, Causes, Consequences, Cures.? The book costs around twenty bucks and is worth ten times that amount. The author, Richard Duncan has a great background and is as smart as they come. He explains why he sees a crashing dollar and a severe recession coming up in the US ? plus a world recession. This is no wild-eyed guru, this is a guy who knows what he?s talking about and a guy who understands money and the world monetary system ? he?s worked for both the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. Please buy this book!-- Richard Russell, Dow Theory Letters Richard Duncan crisply explains why payback time for years of credit excesses, payments imbalances and securitized sub-par lending is imminent. Mr Greenspan, your time is up. --Philip Bowring, International Herald Tribune Richard Duncan?s excellent book? we cannot recommend it enough.-- Bill Bonner, The Daily Reckoning Richard Duncan? is one of the brightest financial analysts I know. Richard is the author of one of my favorite books called The Dollar Crisis: Causes, Consequences, Cures.-- John Mauldin, Thoughts from the Frontline For a preview of how it might play out, consult Richard Duncan?s recently revised book, The Dollar Crisis: Causes, Consequences, Cures. Just try to sleep after digesting its thesis that the world?s biggest economy is looking like a huge and growing Ponzi scheme.--William Pesek Jr., International Herald Tribune
