Empire of Debt

Full Name
Empire of Debt: The Rise of an Epic Financial Crisis

Empire of Debt takes a wry, witty, and erudite look at the state of the empire. It provides you with the first in-depth look at how the American character has shifted to accommodate its new imperial role. It shows how the government has gained control of public life and the economy. The result has been, among other horrors, unfettered deficit spending, gluttonous consumption, and fearless military adventurism. All the while, the nation slouches ever more precipitously towards bankruptcy. For those who welcome the sensible wisdom within these pages, the future will be bright, indeed.

Praise for Empire of Debt

"This is a powerful book. In addition to its depth, it is well written, well documented, and vastly readable. I had the feeling of seeing an X-ray of economic reality with the crust removed. It should be made mandatory reading in most circles. Read it, and your views of the world around you will no longer be the same."

Nassim Nicholas Taleb, founder, Empirica Capital, LLC

"Now perhaps someone will finally listen!"

Jim Rogers, author, Investment Biker, Adventure Capitalist, and Hot Commodities

"Instead of trade and work, imperialism breeds militarism, inflation, and debt, as Bonner and Wiggin show. Yet there is a golden hope in freedom and honest money."

Llewellyn H. Rockwell Jr., Ludwig von Mises Institute

"[Empire of Debt] is a fantastic book. It's thoughtful, erudite, witty, well written, practical, and spot-on. If you value your financial health, you'll read it from cover to cover. Now!"

Doug Casey, Chairman, Casey Research, LLC, and author, Crisis Investing

"I laughed, I cried, I renewed my passport. Bonner and Wiggin deliver a steady diet of insight and wit that terrifies the reader, even as it amuses. Empire of Debt is not for everyone, only for those of us who hope to enjoy continuing prosperity amidst difficult conditions."

Eric Fry, Editor, The Rude Awakening
