Description
 
Shock Exchange explains the stock market and U.S. economy through the eyes of
the New York Shock Exchange, a financial literacy program Ralph Baker started in
2006 to share his passion for investing and basketball with his 11-year-old son
and other boys his age. The book predicts the "pain ahead" for the U.S. economy,
the demise of China, the pending stock market crash and social unrest.

The first few chapters describe Mr. Baker’s experience growing up in Prince
Edward County, VA which was one of the five lawsuits that made up the Brown v.
Board of Education decision; it was also the only case led by high school
students. Mr. Baker grew up with stories about the walkout at Robert Russa Moton
High School, the public school closings that followed Brown and the five-year
fight to get them reopened. Mr. Baker’s parents and other relatives had to
attend schools in other counties, in other states or forgo school altogether.
Some vowed never to return to the state of Virginia. Shock Exchange takes
readers inside the stain of the school closings and that “education speech”
Mr. Baker and his high school classmates were browbeat with by their parents.

The book’s recommendations on infrastructure investing and how to tamp down
the rising cost of college have been trumpeted by President Obama, the Senate
Finance Committee and House Ways and Means Committee. However, they conveniently
forgot to cite the source. Critics try to make and unmake authors, but the
market always decides. President Obama, Senator Orrin Hatch, Congressman Kevin
Brady, et al. have spoken. Shock Exchange is the best book on Wall Street in the
past 20 years, and on economics, it may be the most important book since the
Great Depression. Shock Exchange is also a must read for African Americans.
