The Next Economic Disaster
Richard Vague talked about his book, The Next Economic Disaster: Why It’s Coming and How to Avoid It, in which he argues that the threat to our economic stability comes from privately held debt, which stood at over $11 trillion. He said that many of the big economic downturns in the U.S. and around the world could be traced to privately held debt and questioned whether the economy was on the verge of another downturn.
