Conventional wisdom says that when the government expands the money supply, the money descends on the economy in a uniform blanket. This is incorrect. The money is injected into specific locations causing hot spots or "cones". Mr. Maybury explains a system for tracking and profiting from these cones, for locating genuine money-making opportunities, and for avoiding those which are false or dangerous. "The Clipper Ship Strategy" includes step-by-step instructions, and clever illustrations that make the system easy to understand. Explains how to cope with recessions and avoid unemployment. This book is the second sequel to "Whatever Happened to Penny Candy?" and should be read after "The Money Mystery" also available for purchase through Amazon.

Can be used for courses in Economics, Business, Finance, Government and History.

To improve the student's learning experience, also purchase the student study guide for "The Clipper Ship Strategy" titled "A Bluestocking Guide: Applying The Clipper Ship Strategy" also available through Amazon.

About the Author:

Richard Maybury, also known as Uncle Eric, is a world renowned author, lecturer, and geopolitical analyst. He consults with business firms in the U.S. and Europe. Mr. Maybury is the former Global Affairs editor of "Moneyworld" and widely regarded as one of the finest free-market writers in America. Mr. Maybury's articles have appeared in "The Wall Street Journal", "USA Today", and other major publications. He has penned eleven books in the Uncle Eric series. His books have been endorsed by top business leaders, including former U.S. Treasury Secretary William Simon, and he has been interviewed on more than 250 radio and TV shows across America.


"Richard Maybury's..."The Clipper Ship Strategy', is an outstanding addition to his series dealing with the subjects of economics, law, politics, business and freedom. His extraordinary ability to present complex subjects in simple, common-sense terms, spiced with humor and fascinating examples, makes this book and the others in the series must reading for both the young and adults, alike. In fact, the entire series should be a required, integral, component of the social studies curriculum in all public and private schools. This would bring a quantum leap upward in the quality of citizenship in this country in a single generation." --William P. Snavely, Emeritus Professor of Economics, George Mason University

"While Maybury's 'lessons' are valuable for everyone, I especially recommend this book to potential entrepreneurs and businessmen. I would make it required reading for them if I could. (Those who might be employees can also find out how to select a career and/or company to work for that is likely to remain economically healthy!)" --Cathy Duffy, Author, Christian Home Educators' Curriculum Manual
