Abstract: It's now 1998, so why read a book that predicted disaster in 1995? Because it's instructive to examine what assumptions were used that failed, and/or what the flaw in logic was. Or was everything in the book dead-on the money, and the proper steps taken to stop the collapse?
Keywords: book review, economics, national debt, budget deficit, national bankruptcy, economic forecasting, conditions 1981-, United States policy 1993-, public debts.
