The Great “End of America” Debate (Part 1)


The end is nigh for America!

Blame it on runaway debt and deficits, or a reckless Fed. It doesn’t matter – our country is doomed!

At least, that’s what we’ve been hearing for years. Yet here we are, still chugging right along.

So is our country truly on the precipice of another historic meltdown? Or could we actually be poised for a rebirth?

Well, you can find out by spending the next eight minutes or so listening to my exclusive interview with Ruchir Sharma, Morgan Stanley’s (MS) Head of Emerging Markets and author of the international bestseller, Breakout Nations.

He oversees more than $25 billion in investments and spends at least one week out of every month evaluating opportunities in a foreign country. In turn, it’s fair to say that he’s uniquely qualified to assess how America stacks up with the rest of the world.

I promise, his assessment will shock many of you. But that’s not the only reason to listen in.

During our conversation, Sharma also reveals…

  • Another economic powerhouse that’s teetering on the brink of a credit crisis. He says that it’s “really the big story in the marketplace these days.”
  • The single most important thing to remember when investing in emerging markets.
  • Whether or not the Chinese consumer can reenergize the country’s decelerating GDP growth rate.
  • And, last but not least, we discuss the nasty correction underway in the commodity sector. Is it just a momentary hiccup in the highly touted “Commodity Supercycle”? Or is it a precursor of worse times ahead?
