Join Jason Hartman and coauthor of Aftershock, Robert Wiedemer as they discuss the fundamental underlying problems of printing money, the inevitable results, and how investors can still profit as the world heads toward yet another global economic crisis.  Robert talks about the effects of the government bubble and the dollar bubble, when we can expect these to pop once again, and how these events will affect our government and the world.  To learn more, visit: http://jasonhartman.com/radioshows/. Mr. Wiedemer is a Managing Director at Absolute Investment Management and co-wrote the landmark book that predicted the current downturn in the economy in 2006, America’s Bubble Economy, published by John Wiley.  As Paul Farrell, Senior Investment Columnist at Dow Jones MarketWatch recently said, “In short, America's Bubble Economy's prediction, though ignored, was accurate.”  Kiplinger’s chose it as one of the best business books of 2006.

His following book, Aftershock, was published by John Wiley in November 2009.  It was chosen by Smart Money magazine as one of the five best investment books of 2009.  Aftershock and America’s Bubble Economy have been the subject of articles in the major press including the Wall Street Journal, Financial Times, The Hedge Fund Journal, Euromoney, Barrons, Reuters, AP, Bottom Line and others. Aftershock is in its 16th printing and has sold over 250,000 copies. He speaks to groups of investors, financial analysts and economists including the New York Hedge Fund Roundtable, Association for Corporate Growth, The Turnaround Management Association, the World Bank, the CFA Societies of Chicago and San Francisco, and the National Press Club.  He is a frequent commentator on TV including CNBC’s Squawk Box and Fox Business News.

Jason Hartman talks with Daniel Amerman about the likely results of the recent multi-trillion dollar increase in the debt limit. Dan is a Chartered Financial Analyst with MBA and BSBA degrees in finance.  More at: http://jasonhartman.com/radioshows/. He is a financial author and speaker with over 25 years of professional experience.   Years of studying the costs of paying for over $100 trillion of US government retirement promises, as well as the costs of cashing out an expected $44 trillion of Boomer pensions and retirement accounts, have convinced him that too many promises and too much paper wealth chasing too few real resources will likely lead to substantial inflation in the years ahead, with potentially devastating implications for many savers and investors.  A problem that will also apply to many other nations.

Mr. Amerman spent much of the 1980s as an investment banker helping Savings & Loans and others try to survive the effects of the last major bout of inflation in the United States.  There is a basic economics principle that much of the public is unaware of – inflation doesn’t directly destroy the real wealth of goods and services, but rather, redistributes the rights to that real wealth (a principle which unfortunately will likely destroy much of the investment wealth the Boomers plan on enjoying in retirement).  The author worked with the effects of billions of dollars of such wealth redistributions, and saw how there was not only a loser for each dollar of wealth redistributed – but a winner.
