Ravi Batra published Stock Market Crashes in 1997, after the Asian crisis hit the newsstands. He predicted the US stock market drop in August 1998, as well as the market recovery when the Fed raised it’s rates — both happened. He is predicting another crash in 1999, resulting in the collapse of the "American Business Empire." Batra always offers interesting insights in his books. As in his earlier books, The Downfall of Capitalism and Communism (1978), he credits many of his ideas for economic reform as well as social historical analysis to his late Indian teacher P.R. Sarkar
