Review by: Shayne T Wright on May 15, 2013 :
At first glance I didn't like this at all, then upon re-reading I actually enjoyed it as I let my mind explore the concepts being discussed.

A short and straight to the point expose on how things might transpire if the good old USA does not sort out it's financial problems soon.

For something a bit different, give this one a try.
