Gas At $1.25 Per Gallon: How We Get There in Six Weeks
The book’s title and subtitle pretty much preview the contents of the book. The one exception would be the book’s longest chapter (approximately ¼ of the book’s content), which discusses and challenges the Federal Reserve and its five year-long “stimulus” effort known as the Q.E. programs. It raises such under-publicized issues as “the fairness factor” and “the inventory durability factor”. More
Gas At $1.25 Per Gallon: How We Get There in Six Weeks, was published in June of 2013 and accurately describes who is responsible and what has actually occurred during the past six years in the financial, crude oil and housing markets. More importantly, in simple and straightforward language, the book outlines what will likely occur economically in the weeks and months ahead in the face of dramatically lower (or higher) crude oil and fuel prices.
If you would like to make sure gas prices stay low or fall even further, then you need to read this book, especially the first five chapters.
If you would like to understand the “real” reason for the recent breathtaking collapse of crude oil and gas prices, then you need to read this book.
If you would like a different explanation as to why median family income in America, during the past six years (and frequently longer) has only slightly increased, while U.S. stock market indexes have during the past several years established hundreds of “record highs”, then focus on Chapters 7, 8 and 9 of this book.
If you are invested in the financial markets, read this book.
If you are an investment banker, stock broker, hedge fund manager, or equity fund manager or active investor, definitely read this book.
If you would like to understand more about a federal, semi-private institution, namely the Federal Reserve Bank (whose powers only a very few individuals clearly understand), that has almost certainly affected your economic life, then for sure read the 64 pages in Chapter 9 of this book. (Remember it is 19 “unelected” Federal Reserve members that, using the Q.E. programs, created 3 ½ trillion dollars during the past six years and promptly deposited the money into the bank accounts of already hugely profitable Wall Street banks, claiming all the while to be stimulating the entire American economy.
If you are a dedicated environmentalist and you feel that lower gas prices will harm the planet ecologically, then read Chapter 6.
If you would like to better understand how federal politicians, both democrats and republicans, are quietly and consistently economically shafting the working middle class (and what can be done about it), then read the book from start to finish…and perhaps reread Chapter 10.
In other words, whether you have substantial financial interests at risk or you simply would like to read a “different take” on what is actually going on in Washington D.C. and beyond, then this book will provide a version that you have not heard, watched or read about before. Then again, if you do not like to read or you are short on time, well, it’s only money…not your physical, mental or spiritual health that is at stake.
