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.

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.
