America’s Bubble Economy is the first book to focus on several simultaneous financial bubbles that are interacting to temporarily boost—and ultimately threaten—the United States and world economies. Filled with expert analysis and straight talk, this book will show you how to turn the coming economic transformation into a once-in-a-lifetime wealth-building opportunity.

On first contact:
These creepy books "Aftershock: Protect Yourself and Profit in the Next Global Financial Meltdown"
together with "America's Bubble Economy: Profit When It Pops" are merely
another series of slick well presented well publicized well polished 20/20 hindsight of some great freaky cult like book (that I compare emotionally to Lyndon Larouche minus the Cold War hysteria, political posturing etc).
Like Snake oil salesmen of their day these parasite demagogues feed off the common Americans fears by fear mongering promotions of the paradigms of neoliberal neoconservative half-truths built upon the false gods and idols of other half truths, just like those those they seem to criticize they sell Americans nothing more than a bill for goods they do not own, as implicitly these authors seem to appear to critically exam what in realty they do not.
As I originally criticized the housing bubble before it was widely considered I am fully qualified to address these questions but they must be considered and critiqued solely within the context of
a real time line of events these authors do not address for though they speak on the national treads the issues of local markets which originally were even more so the issue are not addressed as those are the domains of specialists and not easy to fathom.
Two books built upon a few ideas that overall appear shallow and vague as they sell doom and gloom to depressed people in a depressed economy, much like others sold manic optimistic upbeat books books to people in an optimistic upbeat economy both are sociopathic and psychotic in how they address matters.
A waste of money or time for most people.
I will be taking a deeper look into these books as normally I am over worked and hard pressed for time and this is my first impression.
Second Impression: Insidiously these books were published by a prestigious publishing house (John Wiley and Sons ) perhaps this speaks more in address of the role of money and finance as it regards aesthetic and intellectual matters in addition to these books.
These books have been the subject of as I stated expensive glitzy infomercials that seem to have wanted to buy some respectability as so they offer them considering that what also being sold and promoted:
(1) Subscriptions to "Financial Intelligence Report (a $33 for four months)
(2) Subscriptions to David Skarica’s Gold Stock Adviser (a $25 four months)
(3) The Franklin Prosperity Report (a $10 value)
Generally as I consider such services no substitution for a proper education and reading list much like I do not think much of Mutual Funds and paper investments such books are in my view often scams of the blind leading the blind, or lambs lead to the slaughter which is why the economic bubble crashed in the first place as "professional" soothsayers of the Rasputin type parasitical weigh down the thinking of normal good folks.
So right now I don't think much of these books or anything about them for there are many good academic works the problem being you have to be something like a doctor of economics to read a lot of them statistics and all to be checked out.
As for libraries buying these works I would not. junk bonds junk books free on the internet.
