Debt, Deficits, and the Demise of the American Economy
Authors: Peter Tanous and Jeff Cox
Financial analyst, Peter Tanous, and CNBC journalist, Jeff Cox, hired Newman Communications for a book publicity tour to promote their new book, Debt, Deficits, and the Demise of the American Economy. As the events of the global economic crisis continue to unfold, Newman Communications helped Tanous and Cox act as a timely resource, able to discuss the ongoing troubling financial events. To date, Newman Communications has scheduled the authors with more than 50 media interviews. A sample of these hits include an article on AOL DailyFinance discussing how investors can prepare for a double-dip recession and another including Peter Tanous on Yahoo! Finance’s “The Daily Ticker,” discussing the dire outlook of inflation.
In Debt, Deficits, and the Demise of the American Economy, Tanous and Cox discuss how the US is heading toward an unavoidable financial catastrophe that will paralyze the markets and the overall economy.
A timely must-read for all, the authors look at how the US landed in this black hole, how the crisis will continue to unfold, and how it will end with a stock market crash in 2012, if not sooner. Although Tanous and Cox do not predict the exact time, they do spell out the linear direction of this predictable crisis and provide the resources readers need to counter the effects of higher inflation.
