Postcatastrophe Economy: Rebuilding America and Avoiding the Next Bubble

By Eric Janszen
How government and business can work together to secure our economic future.
The 2008 crisis was just the beginning; according to sought-after analyst Eric Janszen, an even bigger financial catastrophe is imminent. Inclined to disbelieve him? He predicted the last two busts months before they happened.
Our problems, according to Janszen, are rooted in the flaws of the debt-driven FIRE economy (Finance, Insurance, and Real Estate). Applying the tried-andtrue methods of currency depreciation, tax and interest rate cuts, and fiscal stimulus will not work this time around. The only way out is to change our fundamental approach.
The solution is to use private and public monies to develop major for- profit transportation, energy, and communications infrastructure projects. These projects will spark employment and growth, reduce U.S. dependence on foreign energy and our foreign debt, and improve the efficiency of the economy for all growth industries in the twenty-first century.
This thought-provoking book offers solutions for a more sustainable and stable economic future.

Early Praise: "Janszen''s done it again! Recent books on investing rehash the drama of Wall Street''s mega-meltdown, shadowy derivatives, subprime mortgages scam, and too- big-to-fail banks. But that''s old news. The Great Recession is over. Investors need to know what''s next, and how to invest successfully for the future." -Paul B. Farrell, columnist and author of "The Lazy Person''s Guide to Investing" "Eric Janszen has written a powerful and important book about how we can build an American economy in which ''finance once again serves the productive economy instead of rules it.'' He describes the job-creating industries of the next ten years and what we have to do to make them thrive." -Former U.S. Senator Bill Bradley "There are many who offer a view of what is going to happen to the economy in the future, but few that do so with a strong foundation in financial history and even fewer that have a track record of being correct. Janszen''s book is a must- read for any serious investor." -Weston M. Hicks, President and CEO, Alleghany Corporation "Janszen provides an unmatched and essential perspective on the financial system''s complexities and offers long-term solutions for today''s challenges. It''s our job to prudently align large pools of capital with secular trends; we have come across no better roadmap than The Postcatastrophe Economy." -Paul & Wesley Karger, Managing Partners, TwinFocus Capital Partners "An outstanding read. Eric Janszen''s prescription for a more fundamentally sound energy policy is especially perceptive. Janszen''s book addresses not only what needs to be done, but the proper roles of government and private interests in securing the real transformative change our economy needs." -Joe Petrowski, CEO, Gulf Oil "Can America''s economic potential be reached in the face of the debt deflation that Janszen describes? This book describes the financial lobbying and political interests th
