Book How An Economy Grows And Why It Crashes

How an Economy Grows and Why It Crashes
by Peter D. Schiff, Andrew J. Schiff

Straight answers to every question you’ve ever had about how the economy works and how it affects your life

In this Collector’s Edition of their celebrated How an Economy Grows and Why It Crashes, Peter Schiff, economic expert and bestselling author of Crash Proof and The Real Crash, once again teams up with his brother Andrew to spin a lively economic fable that untangles many of the fallacies preventing people from really understanding what drives an economy. The 2010 original has been described as a “Flintstones” take economics that entertainingly explains the beauty of free markets. The new edition has been greatly expanded in both quantity and quality. A new introduction and two new illustrated chapters bring the story up to date, and most importantly, the book makes the jump from black and white to full and vivid color.

With the help of colorful cartoon illustrations, lively humor, and deceptively simple storytelling, the Schiff’s bring the complex subjects of inflation, monetary policy, recession, and other important topics in economics down to Earth. The story starts with three guys on an island who barely survive by fishing barehanded. Then one enterprising islander invents a net, catches more fish, and changes the island’s economy fundamentally. Using this story the Schiffs apply their signature take-no-prisoners logic to expose the glaring fallacies and gaping holes permeating the global economic conversation. The Collector’s Edition:

  • Provides straight answers about how economies work, without relying on nonsensical jargon and mind-numbing doublespeak the experts use to cover up their confusion
  • Includes a new introduction that sets the stage for developing a deeper, more practical understanding of inflation and the abuses of the monetary system
  • Adds two new chapters that dissect the Federal Reserve’s Quantitative easing policies and the European Debt Crisis.
  • Colorizes the original book’s hundreds of cartoon illustrations. The improved images, executed by artist Brendan Leach from the original book, add new vigor to the presentation
  • Has a larger format that has been designed to fit most coffee tables.

While the story may appear simple on the surface, as told by the Schiff brothers, it will leave you with a deep understanding of How an Economy Grows and Why It Crashes.

Easy Economics
by Leonard Wolfe

Let’s face it, economics can be boring…but we all need a decent understanding of the basics if we want to survive in these difficult and uncertain times. Let’s make it more interesting. Easy Economics isn’t packed with reams of text or stacks of numbers, this book is visual and engaging. The book aims to bring you up to speed, in a way that entertains while it informs, through a collection of many of the most frequently asked questions–plus some you probably haven’t thought of–on the subject of economics. The topics range from:

  • The difference between Debt and Deficit
  • Causes and cures of recessions
  • The Financial Crisis of 2007-2009 explained
  • Is globalization good or bad?
  • How fiscal and monetary policies differ
  • Bubbles and Busts

Unlike so many other books on the subject, it explains through a Q & A format with entertaining and informative illustration, providing material that many people ordinarily find uninviting and even intimidating in an easy-to-digest, appealing way.


The Real Crash (Fully Revised and Updated)
by Peter D. Schiff

Peter D. Schiff has fully revised and updated his provocative New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today bestseller The Real Crash. First published in 2012, The Real Crash argues that America is enjoying a government-inflated bubble, one that reality will explode…with disastrous consequences for the economy and for each of us.
Since 2012, what has happened with our economy? The stock market continues its illusory gains, the Fed “tapers” while some jobs return, and yet the fundamental threat to our way of life has only grown worse– much, much worse. The United States government nearly defaulted on its debts and the solution was to raise the debt limit– to spend yet more money, to go even deeper in hock to China, and to burden every American with obligations that are impossible to repay.
With incisive analysis and expert financial understanding, Peter D. Schiff reveals that the road we’re on will lead to an abrupt devaluation of our currency and a crash that will upend our power, our political system, and our way of life. This new edition of The Real Crash includes more than 35,000 new words of text, which cover:
-The 2013 government shutdown, the debt crisis, and how the solution only dug a deeper hole
-The IRS political auditing scandal and why the average American should care
-What will happen when the government stops inflating the stock and real estate market bubbles
-How Detroit’s bankruptcy mirrors our national situation: too many promises, not enough revenue
To avoid complete collapse, America must drastically reduce government spending, and regulations that drain businesses and suppress economic growth, eliminate costly and unnecessary agencies, stop foreign military escapades, and cut entitlements of all kinds for all classes of people. And, with wisdom born from having predicted the Crash of 2008, Peter D. Schiff explains how to protect yourself, your family, your money, and your country from the even greater crash that lies ahead.


Time and Money
by Roger W Garrison

Time and Money argues persuasively that the troubles which characterise modern capital-intensive economies, particularly the episodes of boom and bust, may best be analysed with the aid of a capital-based macroeconomics. The primary focus of this text is the intertemporal structure of capital, an area that until now has been neglected in favour of labour and money-based macroeconomics.

Money, Greed, and God
by Jay W. Richards

Does capitalism promote greed? Can a person follow Jesus’s call to love others and also support capitalism? Was our recent economic crisis caused by flaws inherent to our free market system? Jay Richards presents a new approach to capitalism, revealing how it’s fully consistent with Jesus’s teachings and the Christian tradition, while also showing why this system is our best bet for renewed economic vigor.

The church is bombarded with two competing messages about money and capitalism:

  • wealth is bad and causes much of the world’s suffering
  • wealth is good and God wants you to prosper and be rich

Richards exposes these myths, and other common misconceptions about capitalism, and reveals the surprising ways that capitalism is, in fact, the best system to respond to the biblical mandates of alleviating poverty and protecting the environment. Money, Greed, and God equips readers to take practical steps in their own lives to conduct business, worship God, and serve others without falling into the “prosperity gospel” trap.


Crash Proof
by Peter D. Schiff, John Downes

The economic tipping point for the United States is no longer theoretical. It is a reality today. The country has gone from the world’s largest creditor to its greatest debtor; the value of the dollar is sinking; domestic manufacturing is winding down – and these trends don’t seem to be slowing. Peter Schiff casts a sharp, clear-sighted eye on these factors and explains what the possible effects may be and how investors can protect themselves. For more than a decade, Schiff has not only observed the U.S. economy, but also helped his clients reposition their portfolios to reflect his outlook. What he sees is a nation facing an economic storm brought on by growing federal, personal, and corporate debt, too-little savings, a declining dollar, and lack of domestic manufacturing.
Crash-Proof is an informed and informative warning of a looming period marked by sizeable tax hikes, loss of retirement benefits, double digit inflation, even – as happened recently in Argentina – the possible collapse of the middle class. However, Schiff does have a survival plan that can provide the protection that readers will need in the coming years.
