Economic Crises and the Breakdown of Authoritarian Regimes

  Why do some authoritarian regimes topple during financial crises, while others steer through financial crises relatively unscathed? In this book, Thomas B. Pepinsky uses the experiences of Indonesia and Malaysia and the analytical tools of open economy macroeconomics to answer this question. Focusing on the economic interests of authoritarian regimes’ supporters, Pepinsky shows that differences in cross-border asset specificity produce dramatically different outcomes in regimes facing financial crises. When asset specificity divides supporters, as in Indonesia, they desire mutually incompatible adjustment policies, yielding incoherent adjustment policy followed by regime collapse. When coalitions are not divided by asset specificity, as in Malaysia, regimes adopt radical adjustment measures that enable them to survive financial crises. Combining rich qualitative evidence from Southeast Asia with cross-national time-series data and comparative case studies of Latin American autocracies, Pepinsky reveals the power of coalitions and capital mobility to explain how financial crises produce regime change.


The China Fantasy: How Our Leaders Explain Away Chinese Repression

  In The China Fantasy, bestselling author James Mann examines the evolution of American policy toward China and asks, Does it make sense? What are our ideas and hidden assumptions about China? In this vigorous look at China's political evolution and its future, Mann explores two scenarios popular among the policy elite. The Soothing Scenario contends that the successful spread of capitalism will gradually bring about a development of democratic institutions, free elections, independent judiciary, and a progressive human rights policy. In the Upheaval Scenario, the contradictions in Chinese society between rich and poor, between cities and the countryside, and between the openness of the economy and the unyielding Leninist system will eventually lead to a revolution, chaos, or collapse. Against this backdrop, Mann poses a third scenario and asks, What will happen if Chinese capitalism continues to evolve and expand but the government fails to liberalize? What then and why should this third scenario matter to Americans? Mann explores this alternate possibility and-in this must-read book for anyone interested in international politics-offers a startling vision of our future with China that will have a profound impact for decades to come.


Weblogs & New Media: Marketing in Crisis

  'Standard Model' marketing is in crisis, as it is mal-adapted to the global era of extended turmoil we are entering. This is a primer on how to build new, enduring ties to customers and stakeholders in the coming era of crisis by leveraging the largely misunderstood power of weblogs and New Media--'The Power Yet to Come.' The world is entering an extended era of disruption caused by the intersection of four mutually reinforcing cycles: 1. Peak oil, or the depletion cycle/end-game of the global economy's complete dependence on inexpensive, readily available petroleum/fossil fuels. 2. The cycle of credit expansion and contraction (approximately 60-70 years), which is now beginning the transition from unsustainable credit expansion (bubble) to renunciation of debt (credit collapse) and global depression. 3. The generational cycle (4 generations or approximately 80 years) of American history which leads to nation-changing social, political and economic upheaval. 4. The 100+ year cycle of price inflation and stagnation of wages' purchasing-power. This short book explains how enterprises of all sizes and scales can use the critical leverage points offered by weblogs and New Media to construct a new sustainable business model based on trust and knowledge rather than 'branding.'


The Coming Collapse of China

  China is hot. The world sees a glorious future for this sleeping giant, three times larger than the United States, predicting it will blossom into the world's biggest economy by 2010. According to Chang, however, a Chinese-American lawyer and China specialist, the People's Republic is a paper dragon. Peer beneath the veneer of modernization since Mao's death, and the symptoms of decay are everywhere: Deflation grips the economy, state-owned enterprises are failing, banks are hopelessly insolvent, foreign investment continues to decline, and Communist party corruption eats away at the fabric of society. Beijing's cautious reforms have left the country stuck midway between communism and capitalism, Chang writes. With its impending World Trade Organization membership, for the first time China will be forced to open itself to foreign competition, which will shake the country to its foundations. Economic failure will be followed by government collapse. Covering subjects from party politics to the Falun Gong to the government's insupportable position on Taiwan, Chang presents a thorough and very chilling overview of China's present and not-so-distant future. 'A compelling account of the rot in China's institutions and the forces at work to end the Communist Party's monopoly on power.'    JAMES A. DORN, CATO INSTITUTE, WASHINGTON D.C., CO-EDITOR OF CHINA'S FUTURE: CONSTRUCTIVE PARTNER OR EMERGING THREAT? 'Quite simply the best book I know about China's future. Gordon Chang writes marvelously and knows China well. I hope everyone concerned with that country will pay careful consideration to what he sees ahead.'    ARTHUR WALDRON, DIRECTOR OF ASIAN STUDIES, AMERICAN ENTERPRISE INSTITUTE; LAUDER PROFESSOR OF INTERNATIONAL RELATIONS, UNIVERSITY OF PENNSYLVANIA 'A sobering look at how the unique Chinese experiment of market reforms under one-party dictatorship could go wrong.

10 Ways to Profit from the Real Estate Collapse

  Are YOU Ready for Record Foreclosures, Record Bankruptcies A Disaster with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac Average Home Prices Plummet by 30% Homes in ¿hot spots¿ Collapse by Over 50% A Continued Bear Market The recovery efforts since 2003 have been created by the illusion of debt rather than by job and wage growth. Record low interest rates and disappointment of the stock market has helped swell what is arguably the largest real estate bubble in the history of America, which is ready to collapse, and it will affect everyone. This book shows you ten ways you can profit or avoid losing money from the collapse of this bubble. Although this bubble began in the 1990s, it really took off once Greenspan lowered rates to 43-year lows, which encouraged even more Americans who had it with the scandals on Wall Street and corporate America. In the process of trying to stimulate consumer spending, Greenspan¿s flood of money into the banking system caused Americans to transfer their cash from the stock bubble into the real estate bubble. Throughout this ¿recovery,¿ Americans continue to mount record debt, using their homes as ATM machines and maxing out their credit cards. But the end is near for the real estate bubble. Already, short-term rates have increased by 400 basis points in less than two years, and because one-third of all American household debt is tied to variable rate loans of some kind, something has got to give¿namely a large portion of the estimated $9 trillion of residential mortgage debt outstanding. With over 10 million adjustable-rate mortgages in America, many are starting feeling the heat, with some monthly mortgage payments 40% higher. But it¿s only going to get worse and record foreclosures will occur soon. By the time it¿s finished, the real estate bubble will have caused a decline of at least 30% for the average home and will take several years to complete and will cause a sell off in the stock market. The deflation of the real estate bubble may begin what will most likely progress into a long economic meltdown of the U.S. economy. Based upon historical patterns of post-bubble recoveries, I expect the stock market to provide an average annual return of 1 to 3 percent during the secular bear market period of 2001 to 2012. However, there will be one or more bull markets in certain sectors and knowledgeable investors will reap huge rewards. This book will show you: (1) Only certain types of real estate will be a good investment during the fall out (2) Gold will continue to strengthen against the dollar (3) Which stocks will collapse and how to profit from them (4) How to profit from the bubble collapse regardless whether you are a home buyer, seller or neither About the Author: Trading Equities Investment Research Group is a provider of unique financial analysis, accurate economic and market forecasting, and sophisticated asset management and trading strategies emphasizing risk management.

Architects of Ruin

  Was the financial collapse caused by free-market capitalism and deregulation run amok, as liberals claim? Not on your life, says Peter Schweizer. What we are really witnessing is a massive failure of social engineering by liberals. Architects of Ruin, bestselling author Peter Schweizer describes in riveting detail how a coalition of left-wing activists, liberal politicians, and ''do-good capitalists'' on Wall Street leveraged government power to achieve their goal of broadening homeownership among minorities and the poor. The results were not only devastating to the economy, but hurt the very people they were supposedly trying to help. The story begins in the 1960s with Saul Alinsky, the legendary Chicago rabble-rouser who trained his acolytes in highly aggressive techniques of community activism. Alinsky's disciples—along with race-baiting activists like Jesse Jackson—seized on the ''redlining'' controversy of those years to argue that banks were guilty of racial discrimination. In the 1970s, with the help of liberal senators like Ted Kennedy and William Proxmire, legislation was passed that put bankers under the thumb of local activists. In the Clinton years, a new generation of liberal technocrats came to power in Washington and on Wall Street. Schweizer describes how a powerful phalanx of elite liberals, including Bill Clinton, Robert Rubin, Andrew Cuomo, Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, Janet Reno, Deval Patrick, Henry Cisneros, Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Ted Kennedy, Charles Schumer, and many others, aggressively pushed banks to make trillions of dollars in loans to individuals who should never have received them. Meanwhile, Clinton forged a new form of state capitalism in which the big Wall Street financial companies were repeatedly bailed out—with their profits intact—from a series of costly errors, leading them to take ever larger risks. Both financial policies had profoundly distorting effects. The result was the bursting of twin bubbles in mortgages and mortgage-backed derivatives, in turn leading to a global economic collapse. This tale of liberal ''Robin Hood capitalism run wild'' has never been told. But more than just a story about the past, it is also an urgent warning about the future. For today, the very same people who planted the seeds of the collapse are back in Washington, tasked with cleaning up the mess and determined to use the crisis they caused as cover for a massive overhaul of the American economic system. These people have learned nothing from their past mistakes and are busy applying the same methods to other sectors of the economy—health care, the auto industry, real estate (again!), and above all the promotion of ''green'' technologies—inflating bubbles that are sure to bring about another crisis. Ordinary Americans who foot the bill for the last state-capitalist bubble have reason to be afraid—very afraid—of the inevitable result.

After America

  Farsighted and fascinating predictions for a new world order in which America is no longer number oneMoving beyond Fareed Zakaria’s bestselling The Post- American World, veteran international correspondent Paul Starobin masterfully mixes fresh reportage with rigorous historical analysis to envision a world in which the United States is no longer the dominant superpower. The American Century has passed, argues Starobin, due in large part to America’s military overreach in the Middle East; resurgent nationalism and economic expansion in Russia, China, and India; the tarnished American model of unfettered free-market capitalism; and the growth of transnational cultural, political, and economic institutions.Following an insightful analysis of America’s global ascendancy, Starobin explores five possible scenarios for the future: an age of chaos like the one following the collapse of the Roman Empire; a multipolar order of nations in which America would be one great power among others; China becoming the dominant superpower; an age of global city-states; or a form of world government. A concluding section of the book explores how California—the eighth largest economy in the world and demographically and technologically among the most sophisticated spots on the planet—is already starting to move beyond the American Century. Thought provoking and well argued, After America serves as an urgent catalyst to discussing America’s evolving role in a dramatically changing world. Starobin’s tone is sober but in the end hopeful—the world after America need not be a disaster for America, and it might even be liberating.
