Why did the price of gold hit record highs in 2008? Take a look atthe headlines - government bailouts of failed banks, mortgage andcredit crises, rising inflation, slowing growth and globalinsecurity. In order to protect themselves from treacherousfinancial markets and depreciated paper currencies investorsworldwide are turning to gold.

Gold has long been used as money and as a store of wealth, butwhat's the source of its value? Why does that value sometimes riseso high and at other times fall so low? And what do we know aboutgold's complex and often tumultuous past that may yield clues abouthow it may behave in the future?

Gold is a side show on a world financial stage dominated by thedollar. The tail can't wag the dog -gold prices are affected bychanges in prospects for the dollar and not vice versa. Withuncertain outcomes for the American and global economies, gold'sstateless money franchise makes this book compelling reading.

"John Katz is a clear eyed independent strategist and analystwith an extraordinary ability to get to grips with subjects rangingfrom biotechnology via alternative energy to commodities and gold.Uniquely for a commentator on gold he has no dogmas. To assess therisks and rewards that come with owning gold he introduces opinionsfrom an impressive range of commentators, examines differentscenarios that may play out on the world economic stage andhighlights situations when owning gold makes sense and when itdoesn't. To complete the picture Frank Holmes's contribution to TheGoldwatcher explains the risks and rewards. The Goldwatcher hasbeen written for 21st century investors. It will be anindispensable resource for responsible people from institutionalmoney managers to private savers - whether the gold price moves up,down, or sideways."
Patrick H. Spencer, Managing Director, Head ofInstitutional Sales, Robert W. Baird Limited, London

"Frank Holmes's stellar track record as a resource portfoliomanager is a clear reflection of his understanding of the business,the markets and the factors that affect them. His success is asmuch about unearthing value as it is about creating an investmentprocess that is religiously followed. If you want to succeed inyour resource investment,this book is a must. It's all the moreenjoyable because the writing style is easy-going,clear andunderstandable."

From the Inside Flap:

In this remarkably clear and accessible book, authors John Katz andFrank Holmes explain everything the independent investor needs toknow in order to invest like a professional.

Presented in two parts, Part I demystifies the gold price bytracing its history and placing it in the current context oftwenty-first century economic realities, explaining when to buygold and when gold prices do or don't make sense. As an unbiasedindependent analyst John Katz is neither a gold bull nor a bear -rather, he offers an insightful analysis of gold's role in anevolving global economy. In doing that, he pulls together andsometimes pulls apart the arguments and assessments of leadingcommentators from money management, investment banking, academia,and the financial media.

Part II gives the reader a rare glimpse into the intricateworkings of a leading gold investor. Frank Holmes is one of theworld's most authoritative voices on the yellow metal, and an awardwinning fund manager. By opening a window into his company, U.S.Global Investors, Holmes provides an insider's vantage point toexamine the many opportunities and challenges facing goldinvestors. Some of the nuggets from Holmes include:

  • Here comes China - both as a gold consumer and goldproducer
  • Watch oil and the dollar to understand gold as aninvestment
  • Bullion as a value investment and gold equities as a growthinvestment
  • Return on capital as the best yardstick to use when measuring agold-mining stock
  • Think of gold as portfolio insurance, not as a way to getrich
