Exciting historical novel set on New Zealand's West Coast during the goldrush era. Mary Kendrick lives with her family in an isolated community in South Westland, New Zealand. They are awaiting news of the conviction of the men who took the community’s horde of gold at gunpoint, and hid it nearby. Daily life in the settlement – where the men dig gold on the beaches, and fell trees inland for cattle pasture, and where the women are engrossed in domestic work and childcare – is woven through with anxiety that the robbers will come back for the gold, especially once news breaks that the dangerous John Southern has given his jailers the slip in Lyttelton Harbour. Feisty, funny, affectionate and resourceful, Mary is seventeen, teacher to her siblings and neighbours, and anticipating her marriage to Nik, who is away most of the time clearing bush and preparing their farm and house. A bright, likeable protagonist, Mary is worth any modern girl’s attention. Drama and suspense are provided by the trickle of news from Christchurch about the trial and Southern’s ‘escape’. John Southern turns up in disguise, fooling Mary only momentarily. She rides for help; the men stake out the site of the hidden gold; there’s shooting, some blood and a death, but they get their man and the gold.

Dollar Implosion!: Return of the Gold Standard is a unique combination of allegory and nonfiction that revolves around the life of middle-aged Johnny who symbolizes the United States of America. Johnny once ruled his neighborhood like a king. But as middle age crept up on him, he was faced with divorce and imminent bankruptcy. Johnny is forced to reinvent himself and adapt to the rapidly changing world around him. Similarly, the American empire is enduring the challenges of a middle-aged empire. Its currency, the US dollar, will soon collapse due to unsustainable massive government debt and historical forces beyond its control. Its middle class is being squeezed by both the public and private sector. The individual citizen finds himself battling large corporations and government at the same time. Ultimately, the current system that favors the wealthy and large corporations will implode. From the ashes of the outdated financial system will rise a more equitable financial and political system based on the return of the gold standard.

This book answers fundamental questions that have preoccupied modern economic thought since the 18th century. What is the aggregate real rate of return in the economy? Is it higher than the growth rate of the economy and, if so, by how much? Is there a tendency for returns to fall in the long-run? Which particular assets have the highest long-run returns? We answer these questions on the basis of a new and comprehensive dataset for all major asset classes, including--for the first time--total returns to the largest, but oft ignored, component of household wealth, housing. The annual data on total returns for equity, housing, bonds, and bills cover 16 advanced economies from 1870 to 2015, and our new evidence reveals many new insights and puzzles.
