Peak Prosperity co-founders Dr. Chris Martenson and Adam Taggart today release a new book titled, PROSPER!: How To Prepare for the Future and Create a World Worth Inheriting. PROSPER! is the long-awaited sequel to their bestselling book, THE CRASH COURSE: The Unsustainable Future Of Our Economy, Energy, And Environment (Wiley, 2011), which accurately forecasted the challenges the world is mired in today: weak economic growth, too much debt, declining incomes for the lower 99%, a dangerous addiction to fossil fuels, and accelerating ecological destruction – just to name a few.
But there’s hope. PROSPER! focuses on building resilience into our individual lifestyles – the key attribute that enables us to spring back from adversity. The book lays out a blueprint for people to take control of and improve their destinies – outlining practical, actionable investments of one’s time & resources that will ensure greater prosperity in life, whatever the future may bring.
Chapter topics include:
• Which trends are most likely to shape our lives over the next 20 years
• How to build true wealth
• What specific actions to take now to secure a prosperous future, no matter what the future holds
• How everybody can benefit from this guidance, regardless of age, income or ability
“We’re seeing accelerating signs everywhere that the ‘recovery’ engineered since 2009 is failing, as are key systems in the natural world that we depend on,” the authors warn. “But folks who follow the guidance in this book now will be much better off – happier, healthier, safer, and wealthier – when the next crisis hits.”
Praise for PROSPER!
“How does one thrive in – let alone survive – a world filled with unsustainable debt, overconsumption, and rampant cronyism? The authors of Prosper! put forth the best vision I’ve yet seen.”
~ David Stockman, former Director of the U.S. Office of Management & Budget and author of The Great Deformation
“Of those trying to decode the gathering fiasco of finance and economy, Martenson and Taggart get my vote as the smartest guys in the room. Their writing is lucid, wise, funny, and wide-ranging, and this book is indispensible if you want to come out the other side of this crisis in one piece.”
~ James Howard Kunstler, author of The Long Emergency & the World Made by Hand series
“I couldn’t put Prosper! down. Whether you think things are getting better or getting worse, legacy living is the way to thrive, and this book tells you how to do it. Everyone needs to read Prosper!“
~ Joel Salatin, Polyface Farms
“Clearly, our global addiction to debt-fueled growth will not end well. In Prosper!, Martenson and Taggart provide a rare and much-needed resource for today’s times: a comprehensive guide detailing the steps you should take now, in advance of crisis, to secure a bright future.”
~ Tyler Durden, ZeroHedge.com
About The Authors: Chris Martenson & Adam Taggart
Chris Martenson and Adam Taggart are the co-founders of PeakProsperity.com, where they have been educating millions of readers about the risks in our Economy, Energy and Environment systems since before the 2008 crisis. With degrees from Duke, Cornell, Brown and Stanford between them, both held executive positions in companies such as SAIC and Yahoo! before consciously opting out of the corporate life for a more meaningful purpose: to build awareness of the looming changes the next 20 years will bring, and to help concerned individuals take prudent action in advance.
They both moved their families to more rural, self-sufficient locations with strong community engagement, and launched the website PeakProsperity.com. The website is visited by 4 million people a year, and its video series The Crash Course has been viewed over 15 million times and translated into over 12 languages.
