When Giants Fall - Micheal Panzner
If you haven't read this book, may I suggest you find a copy this week. Mr. Panzner speaks about the next five years, what we might expect. Other than suggesting you invest 'all' your money in precious metal, he offered no other hiding places or tips for growing wealthy.
This book was a gift from a blogger friend who knows of my passion for BUY MADE IN THE USA! Panzner speaks about the China factor - how much of our country China owns in the form of treasury bonds and real estate, He talks about 'Walmart' and the Chinese made products. This book will leave you wanting to plant a victory garden, as West Virginia's we are accustom to 'hard times' and we are survivors. We may not be glamorous but we are self sufficient.
Panzner suggest when we say: "Buy Made In the USA" we are making non Americans very angry!
OOPS this is something I say a dozen times a week. Without thought of offending my non American friends.
Panzner is a veteran stockbroker, a very knowledgeable man, he suggest the stock market, financial investing and business will all suffer greatly in the next 5 to 10 years. These turbulent times he suggest will greatly increase. The book is fascinating and in my opinion a combination of truth with a bit of doom and gloom.
