John Mauldin Reviews Scott Burn’s Newest Work – The Clash of Generations

Scott Burns, syndicated newspaper columnist and author, has covered personal finance and investments for over 30 years. In 1985 he joined the staff of The Dallas Morning News where his column became one of the most widely read features in the paper. Today, he ranks as one of the five most widely read personal finance writers in the country, (according to The Dallas Morning News). He joined us on McCuistion, talking about his then new book, The Coming Generational Storm (MIT Press, 2004), co-authored with Boston University economist Laurence J. Kotlikoff. Listed as one of the 25 best books of 2004 by Barron’s, named one of the top 10 business books of 2004 by Forbes, the book was endorsed by five Nobel laureates.

In retrospect, Burns and Kolikoff predicted the future. The Coming Generational Storm warns of a worldwide generational financial crunch and advises us on how to protect ourselves from the fallout. He and Kotlikoff are  back with another brilliant: The Clash of Generations, which John Maudlin has outlined so well in his newsletter. John was also a guest on McCuistion, talking about his economic predictions and his latest work: ENDGAME: The End of the Debt SuperCycle & How It Changes Everything; a book  well worth reading.  His program can be seen by clicking here.

Thanks for joining us for conversations that matter…
