At the stroke of midnight on January 1, 2000, the world could erupt into complete chose. Imagine: social security checks stop coming, planes all over the world are grounded, VISA balances skyrocket, and the military, police officers, and firefighters walk off the job. Any one of these problems could generate enormous social consequences. Combined, they will cause complete chaos. Experts know how to solve the Year 2000 crisis, but can it be implemented in time? Now, for the first time in non-computer nerd language, author Michael S. Hyatt tells the rest of us, in a straightforward manner, the magnitude and scope of the Year 2000 crisis and its impact on federal, state and local governments; the banking and finance industries; public utilities; and the personal computer.
