Product Description

In When Giants Fall, Panzner makes his case for the turbulent economic changes that will be occurring over the next few years and examines the resulting economic opportunities.

According to Panzner, the economic changes will be widespread. Businesses will struggle amid wars, shortages, logistical disruptions, and a breakdown of the established monetary order. Individuals will be forced to rethink livelihoods, lifestyles, living arrangements, and locales. Political structures will be in flux, as local leaders gain influence at the expense of national authorities. For many people, it will be nothing short of a modern Dark Ages, where each day brings fresh anxieties, unfamiliar risks, and a sense of foreboding.

However, for those enlightened few who understand what is really going on and what happens next, the chaotic years ahead represent the opportunity of a lifetime - a time when they can realize goals they never thought possible and achieve a level of wealth, security, and inner peace that will leave them head-and-shoulders above everyone else. In this book, Panzner offers cutting-edge insights and strategies that will enable readers to stay well ahead of the game during the uniquely unsettling period ahead.

Customer Reviews:

  • A simple warning about the certain future
    True, his writing style is not perfect, but he delivers important information in a readable manner....more info
  • you could have written this book
    Very little original material here. The book is mostly a collection of quotes taken from such various secondary sources as Time Magazine, The Economist, The Guardian and etcetera. Tremendous repetition here and as I said in the title line, you could have done a bit of research and put together a book of quotations pertaining to the financial crisis. This book is a waste of time, don't bother....more info
  • Happenings
    Excellent book ,fast read and understandable even to the layman. Every American should read it ,perhaps it will wake us up to reality....more info
  • One Giant leap for understanding
    Panzner's earlier book, Financial Armageddon, laid out the four horsemen of the apocalypse riding towards the global economy. Booed off in some quarters at the time for its "doomsday" or "mad max" predictions of debt bubbles bursting, banks failing, the FDIC getting in over their head, rising unemployment etc etc it's all proven sadly accurate. This book builds on these foundations and looks to a future involving America's decline as a political, cultural and militaristic superpower. Not everyone's cup of tea, but it shouldn't be anti-American to discuss threats to the current way of life. How else are we to arrive at solutions?

    The book draws on a massive number of sources which are helpfully detailed in the extended bibliography. Anyone looking for more information on any aspect of the end of hegemony would do well to start here.

    The last part of book, addressing ways the reader can prepare themselves for a changed world order, is necessarily general. People expecting to be told they can make money simply by buying one stock and selling another 1) have misunderstood the first part of the book and 2) will be better served by a comedian like Cramer, than an educator like Panzner.

    It's well researched, extremely well sourced and although its conclusions sometimes seem to go beyond what I would deem likely, that was case with the Financial Armageddon too.
    In the words of GWB (something of minor star in the book), "fool me once, shame on -- shame on you. Fool me -- you can't get fooled again."
