    We are in a Global financial collapse as worldwide welfare states meet the brick wall of exponential deficits and aging demographics. Political and economic reform will not come soon enough to avert a meltdown. Thus the central theme of "Financial Survival" is providing the skills and information you need to survive a Second Great Depression.

    Because economic fundamentals have changed, your financial strategies will be tested in ways unlike the First Great Depression. In the future, you won't only be facing long expected inflationary pressures as the Federal Reserve and Central Banks worldwide attempt to paper over the massive deficits of profligate welfare governments. You will also face intense deflationary pressures as wages and savings are crushed, money velocity falls and economic activity slows due to the loss of trust.

    This is the New Normal.

    Your financial future is at risk and your skills will need serious restructuring; the old ways will not work as fiat currencies are debased and collapse. Your goal is to at least make it through the collapse with your financial assets intact, and better still to be in position to profit from the opportunities that present themselves even in imploding markets. It won't be easy, but it is doable and the purpose of this book is to get you to the other side of a financial abyss which may last decades.

    The author's background is in engineering, economic modelling software and commercial real estate with a good dose of entrepreneur thrown in. This book relies on concepts from feedback control and information theory (the kind of nuts and bolts analyses that makes airplanes fly) rather than the intellectual academic pabulum that pads economic consultants and politician's pocketbooks.

    The failed record of the economic titans running our economy suggests there is much to learn from a perspective grounded in reality rather than ivory tower preening. You won't find the typical material presented in "Financial Survival" coming from mainstream pundits and economists schooled in Keynesian fantasy. What you will get is hard economic advice based on gritty experience.

    The failed record of the economic titans running our economy suggests you will learn much from a perspective grounded in reality rather than Hopium.

    About the author:
    Daxton Brown, is senior editor and analyst for Futurnamics.com. His work in financial database consulting and information systems gives him a wide range of analytical skills for evaluating economic trends. He's consulted on both commercial real estate and stock market expert system software. A product of Stanford University, Daxton finished a Mechanical Engineering degree and did graduate work in civil engineering at UNLV.

    A serial entrepreneur at heart, Daxton Brown has spent most of his professional life in startup ventures ranging from his father's small trucking company in the 60s, to a Television Station in the 90s and commercial real estate in the 00s. Besides writing on socio-economic trends and survival in a collapsing economy, Daxton stays busy with a number of business interests. His current engineering interests range from magnetic-gear power transmissions to pulsejet engine development to microcontrollers to automotive mileage improvements.

    The reason Daxton can provide a financial perspective you can't get elsewhere is his background is more varied than the usual economist, financial consultant, banker or politician. Coming from a gritty entrepreneurial and bootstrap startup environment allows him to offer insights traditional sources don't have. Trained as a mechanical engineer out of Stanford, he has mathematical and computational skills beyond that of the normal economist; a perspective based more on physics than sociology. Of course, while engineers do have a background in engineering economics, they aren't noted for giving financial advice, but business experience and education, as an entrepreneur, economic software writer and commercial realtor gives him real world expertise just not available from academia.


    Daxton Brown is the author of Harry: Money Mob & Influence In Harry Reid's Nevada published in 2010. He is also the author of Going Galt: Surviving Economic Armageddon". He released Surviving Civil War II: Economic, Social & Political Collapse published August 1, 2011. and "Biflationary Depression: Protecting Assets From inflation and Deflation in a Keynesian Collapse" released february 20, 2012. Currently writing Going Galt: Surviving Obamacare, Vegas Rules: Wiseguy Business Tactics For Chaotic Times.
