About Michael C. Ruppert

Author Michael C. Ruppert details the intricate connections between money and energy, including the ways in which oil shortages and price spikes triggered the economic crisis that began in September 2008.

Ruppert outlines a 25-point plan of action, including the creation of a second strategic petroleum reserve for the use of state and local governments, a thorough assessment of soil conditions nationwide, and an emergency action plan for soil restoration and sustainable agriculture.

If ever there was a need for a particular book at a particular time, it’s this book now.
