Michael H. Shuman discusses "Local Dollars, Local Sense"

Local Dollars, Local SenseMichael ShumanEconomist, attorney, author, and entrepreneur, Michael H. Shuman has authored, coauthored, or edited eight books, including, the award-winning, "The Small-Mart Revolution", "Going Local", and, his most recent, "Local Dollars, Local Sense: How to Shift Your Money from Wall Street to Main Street and Achieve Real Prosperity"(Chelsea Green Publishing). In this new book, Michael shows investors how to use their money to help local businesses and build resilient regional economies.

Considering that not even 1 percent of the $30 trillion Americans' have in long-term savings touches local small businesses, his book serves as a much needed resource and guide through the growing realm of local investment choices—from institutional lending to investment clubs and networks, local investment funds, community ownership, local stock exchanges, crowdfunding, and more.

GreenspanRenowned economist and New York Times best selling author, Dr. Ravi Batra returns to Writers' Voices to talk about the economy and what we have to look foreward to. We will be focusing on his book, Greenspan's Fraud, a hard-hitting and comprehensive look at Alan Greenspan's career.

Greenomics, Batra argues, has extracted trillions of dollars in excess taxes from the American middle class, lowered wages for working families, and hurled millions into poverty. Batra demonstrates how Greenspan unwittingly brought about a global crash; how he helped spread the virus of regressive taxation, which is the main culprit behind stagnating wages around the world.

The New Golden AgeWriters' Voices Explores Economic Crisis as we speak with world-renowned economist Dr. Ravi Batra. In his new book, "The New Golden Age: The Coming Revolution against Policial Corruption and Economic Chaos", he argues that nations pass through three eras with the military, intellectuals and priests, and the wealthy, alternately dominating society. He concludes that the age of money is about to end in America and Europe. History reveals that the age of the wealthy always ends in a social revolution followed by a golden age of peace, prosperity, and ethical values.

Local attorney Paul Gandy, whose practice specializes in issues related to consumer debt, will guest cohost with Monica Hadley. Tune in to KRUU 100.1 FM this Friday, November 14, at 1pm for this illuminating interview.
