Today′s financial and economic tribulations were a long time in the making. Many people ask, "Why didn′t someone see it coming?" A New York Times bestselling book did see it coming. Over 100,000 people read it in time to protect their wealth. The book foresaw and explained the collapse in home prices, plunge in stocks, subprime debacle, liquidity crisis, the demise of Fannie and Freddie, the Federal Reserve′s failure to turn the trend, and lots more. The book was Robert Prechter’s Conquer the Crash , published in early 2002, when the Dow was above 10,000 and the financial world was partying around–the–clock. Fast forward to today: the average U.S. homeowner has suffered a decline of 30% to 40% in property value. Stocks and commodities had their biggest fall since 1929–1932. Fannie Mae is a zombie corporation under the government’s protection. The Fed has pushed every button at its disposal (and then some), to no avail. If Prechter thought a whole new book would help, he′d have written one. But Conquer the Crash is a book–length forecast that′s still coming true –– only some of the future has caught up with the specific predictions he published back then. There is much more to come. That means more danger, but also great opportunity. Conquer the Crash, 2nd edition offers you 188 new pages of vital information (480 pages total) plus all the original forecasts and recommendations that make the book more compelling and relevant than the day it published. In every disaster, only a very few people prepare themselves beforehand. Think about investor enthusiasm in 2005–2008, and you′ll realize it′s true. Even fewer people will be ready for the soon–approaching, next leg down of the unfolding depression. In this 2nd edition, Prechter gives a warning he′s never had to include in 30 years of publishing –– namely, that the doors to financial safety are closing all over the world. In other words, prudent people need to act while they can. Conquer the Crash, 2nd Edition readers will receive exclusive online access to the Conquer the Crash Readers Page, where Prechter continually updates the book′s recommended services and institutions

Flying in the face of current thinking, this book suggests that we do not need to think outside the box in our quest for creativity, rather we should rethink the way we look inside the box . This idea will resonate only too well with those who have endeavoured to be creative by thinking outside that box, only to have their attempts scuppered by the constraints of bureaucracy and organizational politics. Instead of fighting a losing battle, the author suggests that creativity should be worked at within the constraints of the organizational box, but that space needs to be grown and allowed to be shaken up. Only by experimenting, mutating and finding new directions can you uncover business paths that lead to success. The reader is encouraged not to free themselves from all their knowledge and experiences (the thinking outside the box method) but to use their knowledge and experience in new ways. The book is structured around three key steps: Expanding the box : so that the pieces of the puzzle in it can move around more freely Filling the box : with even more knowledge, and how to get these new pieces of the puzzle to connect with the existing ones Shaking the box : so that the pieces fall into new places and form new patterns. The book shows that anybody can be creative. The creative methods suggested in the book will be linked to real business examples from which techniques have been developed to help their implementation. Numerous exercises and eye–openers form part of the practical implementation of Micael Dahlén s ideas. The book is framed by models and concepts of how creativity works (the creative process, the creative person and the creative result) and what its effects are.
