Newsmax’s Aftershock Survival Guide Reviews – Legit or Scam?
from 72 reviews Review It


Newsmax’s Aftershock Survival Summit was a website presentation created in 2011 for promoting the ideas and concepts of economists Robert Wiedemer, David Wiedemer, and Cindy Spitzer, who wrote the book Aftershock.

Recently the featured presentation has been rereleased as the Aftershock Survival Summit 2013 and is a video presentation of an interview with Robert Wiedemer.

This interview covers a description of what went wrong with the economy and how he and his fellow economists were able to spotlight these problems before anyone else could.

The Newsmax’s Aftershock Survival Summit 2013 then discusses with Wiedemer the potential problems that may still affect the American and global economies within the next two years or so, and what the average American should do to protect themselves.

Why Did the American Economic Bubble Burst?

According to Wiedermer and his associates, the bubble burst because the growth of the Stock Market and the housing market was artificial. “Artificial” because they were growing at rates significantly larger and faster than both the economy and personal income levels.

Now, this is not especially groundbreaking news. Since the market crashed in 2008, many economists have pointed out this same explanation.

The difference between Wiedemer and his associates, as pointed out by, is that they weren’t explaining the financial crash, they were predicting it. They published a book in 2006, America’s Bubble Economy, which explained and foresaw the current economic recession.

This impressive economic prediction is why Newsmax is featuring the Aftershock Survival Summit – to get Robert Wiedemer’s opinion on what American’s should do next to protect themselves.

  • No review, I asked Mr G if he still felt the sme and what is Crash Insurance?
  • Don't make the mistake of signing up. Even if the information provided was good info you won't be able to escape the barrage of junk email and offers that follow. Even if you do call and cancel they will hold onto your information and then try to bill you 3 months after canceling to hope you miss the charges. Stay away at all costs.
  • Reminds me of the health care benefits team visiting my office for additional cancer care policies that employees could purchase. They inserted a large color photo in the cancer care packet that showed an elderly frail woman dressed up in granny garb, complete with a hat with a big flower. The caption read "if you get cancer, who is going to take care of you, "YOUR MOTHER?" Your mother in this photo looked like she had 6 months to live. I did not sign up for the additional cancer policy. Why did this health care company feel the need to distribute this scare tactic.
  • Are all of you serious? Your on here calling the Wiedemer brothers and Cindy Spitzer along with their associated books a scam? Instead of spewing ignorant feces from your fingertips, I suggest you complete some due diligence and get to know the history of these fantastic economists.

    They were some of THE ONLY economists that predicted the multiple bubbles that burst during the Great Recession. Their book, America's Bubble Economy: Profit When It Pops, was published in 2006. Their follow up book, The Aftershock, was first published in 2009 and then a later second edition. Within this new book, they speak of the greater, looming bubbles that will eventually pop. THEY DO NOT GIVE A SPECIFIC YEAR, but speculate it could be a few years out from when they printed the 2nd edition (so ~2015-2016) but that timeline could be stretched by continued quantitative easing, slow economic growth, etc.

    If you can read, then pick up their first book and follow that by their second. Their insights are spot on and completely relevant. What you do from that point on is up to you but for the sake of your family and the long-term security of your financial well-being, I would suggest taking some of their advice.
  • Aftershock has been the most expensive book ever written. If you were to invest as they have recommended, you would have lost your shirt by now. As far as the 2006 prediction comming true, even a broken clock is right twice a day.
  • Total scam to extricate money from people through fear.
    • Well I guess the crash didnt happen in 2013..stock market at all time high and gold/silver at lows..they want to prop up the metals by releasing this story but it didnt work. they got left out of the stock market rise and are stuck in precious metals that have lost a lot of money this year.
  • I'm amazed. His predictions are right on time. The US has now shutdown and will be defaulting by Oct 17. The gov't can delay it, but the effects will just accumulate. All those doubters will be put to shame.

    Wiedemer predicted this in his 2010 book:

    John Burke of Newsmax: "This incredible book predicted that two more massive bubbles — the dollar and U.S. government debt — could burst by 2013."

    Bob Wiedemer: "Based on my analysis, I predict foreign investors will begin to significantly lose confidence in their U.S. holdings sometime during, or shortly after, 2013...But this will get much, much worse when we hit 10 percent inflation. And, by 2016 a mass exodus of foreign investment could very well occur in the United States."

    Wiedemer: "And, it won't matter who's in the White House in 2013. I don't think there is any getting around that. I don't like it. But it's the lay of the land."
    • Steve, Metals are down because of clear market manipulation since the last crisis. The banks are not ready YET, for the collapse of world currencies and other markets. Any educated person should by now surmise that it's no longer if a major collapse is coming, but when...that is the only difficult part. The question is how long can the central banks keep this massive worldwide economic bubble from bursting. Thank God China is still tied so heavily to the dollar and our economy or they single-handily could bring us down in a day. Never in history has all the financial markets been tied together like today, and all the G20s and the ruling central banks are on the same page...create as much money as possible the markets and debt load can handle as fast as possible to prop everything up except metals, as long as possible.

      Can people still make returns in the paper markets in the short-term, sure but if they don't get out in time this next crisis will make millions of investors poor for a very long time, unlike 2008. The fundamentals now as so much worse than then it's scary, but you're not going to hear it on the mainstream media of course that could trigger a collapse before the powers-that-be are ready. btw the inflation numbers are manipulated as well and many of the important indicators are not calculated in CPI. Just because gas prices are falling (for much different reasons) doesn't mean we are not paying a lot more for other things, including consumables, supplies, etc. Keep in mind the core CPI does not include food, which as you know prices are rising much faster than the government reported inflation figures. Keep in mind the government (as we do just on a massive scale) benefit greatly from lower inflation and interest rates.

      Ref: Is The Government Lying To Us About Inflation?
    • I'm surprised by your analysis. Gold is down, the Canadian dollar is down, inflation is down and the market is up even though tapering has started.
  • This is a scam my fellow conservatives. I hate that pinko liberal communist Barack Obama as much as the next red blooded American male, but this is just a scam. Not to self promote but I've got some books on the economy and be sure to catch me on the return of Crossfire on CNN in the coming few days.
  • The way to make money is to either see an emerging market and sell a product that fits or create a market and sell something that fits.

    I think they are creating a fear market and then selling their book, newsletters and what ever else they can create. In that sense, you are getting something for the money you are paying. BUT, if you are buying out of fear then you are not using a logical thought process to protect yourself as the consumer.

    To determine if it is a scam ... ask yourself if you are truly purchasing a product that will benefit you in the long run. Some may find it handy. I on the other hand found the (free) pdf of the book online within minutes - no need to purchase. Will I get something out of it ... maybe, maybe not!

    A true scam takes your money and gives you nothing in return! Honestly that does not appear to be the case here other than the "Fear Factor" approach!
  • If you have already read either Crashproof or The Little Book of Bull Moves in Bear Markets by Peter Schiff, do not bother with Aftershock. The Schiff books are superior, and more readable.
    • I actually agree with a lot of the economic analysis in the video interview, but am incredibly annoyed by the malware that this site apparently put on my mac the moment I clicked on the free Aftershock book offer icon; malware that brought down my search engines googlechrome and safari (only Bing seems to work - conspiracy by microsoft, maybe? :-). My office IT team is still stumped and what was supposed to be a 30 min interview on the global economy has cost me several hours this morning (and counting). Grrr.
