The expert guide to understanding and surviving monetary failure

What's Wrong with Money? explores how and why money is valued and the warning signs that point to its eventual collapse. Author Michael Ashton is widely regarded as a premier expert on inflation, and in this book, he illustrates how the erosion of trust in central banks is putting us at high risk of both near- and long-term inflation—and a potentially very serious disruption. It's not about a conspiracy surrounding inflation reporting; it's about the tentative agreement we all carry that lends money its value. This value isn't necessarily inherent; while some currency is backed by stored value, others are not. This book walks you through the history of currency and details the ways in which it can fall apart. You'll learn how to invest in any type of collapse scenario, and you'll gain expert insight into the warning signs that signal a coming shock to the financial system.

  • Track the history of monetary value
  • Consider how money could die slowly or quickly
  • Learn investment strategies for both slow and quick scenarios
  • Examine potential causes of erosion of trust in the monetary
    system, and the chilling results of such erosion

An economic system without money is incredibly inefficient, but our shared agreement in monetary value has historically never been enough. What's Wrong with Money? shows you the lessons from the past and the reality of the present and helps you make plans for the future of money.

From the Inside Flap:

Over the last century, the concept of money has gradually changed from a currency backed by tangible assets with intrinsic value, such as gold and silver, to what backs money today—trust. There's nothing behind dollars, euros, sterling, yen, francs, and any other fiat currency but trust that someone else will accept it. What's Wrong with Money? provides revealing insights into how and why money is valued and sheds light on the warning signs that one day no one will accept it because of a systemic collapse.

Written by a pioneer and innovator in inflation- related markets, this timely resource illustrates how the erosion of trust in central banks has increased the risk of both near- and long-term inflation—as well as a potentially major disruption. He offers a refreshing walk through the history of currency, which shows the numerous ways past currencies have fallen apart.

More than a cautionary tale, this complete guidebook to protecting your wealth gives you concrete ways to invest in any type of collapse scenario, as well as an insider's perspective on the warning signs that will signal an imminent shock to the financial system. Whether you're new to investing or want authoritative guidance on rebalancing your existing portfolio for the future, this practical guide lets you take action right away with:

  • Detailed and engaging examinations of the importance of money and the inherent problems and risks with money backed only by trust
  • Straightforward approaches to setting a course for your financial independence through building an inflation-aware portfolio
  • Easy-to-implement techniques for infusing the benefits of liability-driven investing into individual portfolios

The response by central banks and legislatures to each financial crisis degraded another fundamental financial layer. The crumbling equity market got repaired at the cost of the housing and credit markets, and the housing and credit markets got repaired . . . at what cost? What's Wrong with Money? The Biggest Bubble of All fully prepares you to retain your wealth no matter what the currency is worth.

From the Back Cover:

AN EXPERT GUIDE TO SURVIVING COMING INFLATION AND POTENTIAL DISRUPTION

  • Demonstrating the causes behind money devaluing slowly and quickly
  • Detailing a variety of investment strategies for gaining an edge no matter how money collapses
  • Examining the potential causes of monetary erosion, how it leads to inflation, or, in extreme cases, hyperinflation, and enabling you to determine your "personal inflation" with an exclusive online tool

By knowing What's Wrong with Money?, you can ensure your wealth is well protected.
