    I almost gave this book a second star for two reasons, first the suggested action steps such as getting out of debt are decent, and second the ease of reading, appeal to a broad readership, and ability to engage the otherwise non-interested. The earthquake analogy is apt. But if someone's introduction to economics is through this book, that would be a sad fate indeed. I dusted off this book from my parents bookshelf, interested to see what Mr Burkett had to say and if it was still relevant at all I almost gave this book a second star for two reasons, first the suggested action steps such as getting out of debt are decent, and second the ease of reading, appeal to a broad readership, and ability to engage the otherwise non-interested. The earthquake analogy is apt. But if someone's introduction to economics is through this book, that would be a sad fate indeed. I dusted off this book from my parents bookshelf, interested to see what Mr Burkett had to say and if it was still relevant at all, 25 years on. I found it still relevant in principle, but I was not impressed with much of what he had to say and especially how he said it. The book has a pop-Christian feel. The author writes very personally, with lots of outright opinion and posturing. He condenses complex topics with mixed results. The prose bounces from fiction to history to current-events analysis and predictions. Overall it is an interesting mix of facts, speculation, and questionable analysis. Lots of potential, but poorly delivered. I'm sure better books can be found, no matter your purpose in reading this book. In any event, not worth reading.

    Great, although subsequent events proved his timing off by twenty or thirty years.

    Dated, not the most modern approach, but the money management principals are still sound and helpful.

    While the data Larry reviews led him to believe this would occur in the 1990s, we are seeing it happen now! This is a must read for anyone trying to figure out today's economy and what's going on. While the data Larry reviews led him to believe this would occur in the 1990s, we are seeing it happen now!

    Judging by the current economic mess in the U.S. Burkett's expectations were right on target. Judging by the current economic mess in the U.S. Burkett's expectations were right on target.

    What can one say, the man was correct. He had a prophetic word. And we are living out what he said nowadays.

    A book of the Year 1992, but still relevant for today's economic chaos. A book of the Year 1992, but still relevant for today's economic chaos.

    So amazing that this book was written in 1991, and although things are not happening as fast as Burkett thought, the events he predicted are right on the money. Pun not intended.
