9780385512237: The Coming Collapse of the Dollar and How to Profit from It: Make a Fortune by Investing in Gold and Other Hard Assets

The dollar is in trouble. It has fallen against other currencies for the past three years, and now its orderly retreat could well become a rout. This spells potential disaster for the American economy—and potential riches for a few smart investors. In The Coming Collapse of the Dollar and How to Profit from It, financial gurus James Turk and John Rubino show how the dollar arrived at this precipice, why it will plunge, and how you can profit from the resulting financial crisis.

The U.S. today is the world’s biggest debtor nation, printing money with abandon to sustain the illusion of prosperity. The federal government owes $7 trillion and its debt is soaring. As a society, we owe more than $37 trillion, or about $500,000 per family of four. Our trade deficit with other countries is staggering, and to finance this mountain of debt we’re flooding the world with dollars. The inevitable result: The dollar will decline until it is displaced as the world’s dominant currency. Precious metals will soar in value, and gold will reclaim its monetary role at the center of the global financial system.

Traditionally a haven during times of uncertainty, gold has risen dramatically since 2001. By the fall of 2004 it was up by nearly 50%, at over $400 an ounce. But this is just the beginning.

James Turk, a leading gold authority and the founder of GoldMoney.com, and veteran financial writer John Rubino, show readers how to capitalize on gold’s dramatic climb. In The Coming Collapse of the Dollar, Turk and Rubino reveal which stocks and bonds will falter as the dollar declines and why that decline is virtually inevitable. They offer strategies for using gold coins, gold stocks, gold-based digital currencies, and other hard assets to create a profitable portfolio. And they explain how to make the most of your gold and other precious metal holdings, identifying the opportunities and pitfalls of buying gold mining stocks and the mutual funds that invest in them.

America’s debt binge has put its economy at grave risk. The value of the dollar is falling; many stocks are once again wildly overvalued; and bonds, tied to an ever-diminishing dollar, are a disaster waiting to happen. By investing in gold and other hard assets, Turk and Rubino explain how you can protect yourself from these dangers.

The Coming Collapse of the Dollar and How to Profit from It is a must read for every investor, whatever the size of his or her portfolio.

From the Inside Flap:

Periodically, the global economy shifts gears in a fundamental way, turning conventional wisdom on its head and producing new categories of winners and losers among investors. The spectacular growth of the last twenty years has slowed; and the dollar, once the world’s dominant currency, is falling in value every day. One sure winner has emerged from the debacle, however: gold. Historically a haven during times of uncertainty, gold began rising in 2001 when high-tech stocks imploded. At the end of 2003 it was up by 50 percent, trading at around $420 an ounce. With governments running up record debts and printing money with abandon to sustain the illusion of prosperity, gold is now poised to soar in value against most national currencies and reclaim its place at the center of the global financial system.

In THE COMING COLLAPSE OF THE DOLLAR AND HOW TO PROFIT FROM IT, James Turk and John Rubino explain how ordinary investors can preserve and increase their wealth by investing in gold coins, gold mining stocks, and gold-based digital currencies. They delineate the potential profits, as well as the risks involved, in the various options; discuss how to integrate gold into a balanced financial portfolio; and point out the pros and cons of buying shares in funds that invest in gold-mining stocks.

The devaluation of the dollar has already hurt millions of Americans: the real value of fixed incomes has shrunk; the stock market may be overvalued once again; and bonds, tied to an ever-depreciating dollar, are headed for disaster. In a clear, highly practical style, THE COMING COLLAPSE OF THE DOLLAR AND HOW TO PROFIT FROM IT shows readers why catching the “gold bug” now is the surest way to flourish in the future.
