Mike Folkerth is the author of "The Biggest Lie Ever Believed" and is not your run-of-the-mill author of finance and economics.

The former real estate broker, developer, private real estate fund manager, auctioneer, Alaskan bush pilot, restaurateur, U.S. Navy veteran, heavy equipment operator, taxi cab driver, fishing guide, horse packer and few jobs too embarrassing to mention, writes from experience and plain common sense.

Mike’s humorous systems of “Mikeronomics” and “Mikemathics” drastically simplify the economic and mathematic formulas commonly used by very smart, but terribly sheltered individuals.

Will Our Economy EVER Recover? Most news programs, financial forecasters, and politicians talk in terms of when our economy will recover, not IF it will recover. And certainly not HOW it will recover. I don't believe that recovery to our former borrow and spend lifestyles is in our future. "Transform" is far more accurate description than recovery.
