Summary

This is an updated version of the book that accurately predicted the global stock market crash of 2008, the bursting of the real estate bubble, and Ben Bernanke's unprecedented overreaction via quantitative easing programs. First published in 2008, the book quickly became a best seller not just for its timely insight into precious metals investment but for its amazingly accurate prediction of a "roller-coaster crash" - the manipulated whipsaw between inflation, deflation, and back again. In this latest update to his book, author Michael Maloney adds his thoughts on what has played out so far, what we may be facing soon, and how gold and silver can help you transform the coming economic storm into a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

Gold and silver have served as the ultimate safe haven from financial chaos throughout history, and today is no exception. All the underlying fundamentals that caused the financial meltdown of 2008 have not been solved but have been magnified by the actions of the world's central banks. The bailouts, currency creation, market manipulation, derivatives expansion, and growth of the "too big to fail" banks only guarantee that the next crisis will make the crash of 2008 look like a speed bump on the way to the main event. Never in history has the global economy stood at such a precipice, and never in history has it been more vital to understand how, why, and where to invest in gold and silver.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio.

The Definitive book on precious metal investing

I have read many books on the subject of precious metal investing. The topics in this book are presented in a clear and concise manner which is easily understood. I loved the accompanying PDF full of graphs which help illustrate the concepts. He covers the history of gold, fiat currency and the concept of wealth cycles in just the right amount of detail. For more detailed historical account of Golds place as money you could complement this book with James Rickard's "A new case for Gold". This book covers all aspects of investing in precious metals and I would wholeheartedly recommend it to any goldbug.

This book opened my ignorant eyes!

I’ve been ignorantly plodding along through life and foolishly trusting both the banks and government with my hard earned money. As I write this it is April, 8th 2020 and the whole world is in quarantine thanks to a mysterious virus. This got me thinking about the economy and what would happen if the stock market crashed and fiat currencies around the world collapsed. This book is a must read for anyone who wishes to be financially prepared for the economic sh*t storm that is coming our way!!!

Currency versus money

One of my biggest takeaway from this book is the clarity between fiat money (which is really only currency) and the real money. I felt uncomfortable when the first QE was done and wondered why other countries of the world agreed to it and not launched their own international currency. Scary. I will now commence buying my own money!!

Good narration and overview.

Good narration by the actual author. That makes this book an easy listen. Has a bit of an apocalyptic feel at the end, but I think all precious metals authors suffer from a little bit of a bunker mentality. Overall, this is a helpful book if you are trying to learn the basics of this investment class and how to diversify your cash and cash equivalent holdings.

A huge amount of information

Not always the easiest to follow the information laid out in this audio book but the content is clearly very well researched and very well presented. I learned a huge amount, enjoyed the journey and will listen to this book again and again to gain a competent understanding of investing in cycles and learning the value of things rather than just the cost.

A must read.

Wow, what is happening to our money?

Michael Maloney made me stop, think and reevaluate my investment planning and wealth allocation. I started my studies many years ago with Benjamin Graham, continued on to Warren Buffett then adding Robert Kiyasoki.

Watching what is happening around the world with the printing vy many governments of Fiat money. I had to do more research on inflation which brought me to Michael Maloney.

Thank you Mr. Maloney for opening my eyes and introducing me to the world of precious metals. I hope I have enough time to shift my investments before the next big crash.
