Review

“If you read only one book on finance this year, make it Code Red: How to Protect Your Savings from the Coming Crisis , by John Mauldin and Jonathan Tepper, authors of the bestseller Endgame , which delved into the 2008 collapse.”— Forbes magazine

“To understand the situation in which the financial world now stands, this is an excellent book”  (January 2014 Nederlands Pensioen & Beleggingsnieuws)

From the Inside Flap

We're all guinea pigs in a grand monetary experiment being performed by the world's central banks. Quantitative easing, zero-percent interest rates, nominal GDP targeting, and other "Code Red" policies introduced by central bankers to pull the global economy back from the brink of collapse have remained in place long past their expiration date, setting the stage for potential disasters ahead. While the outcome remains unclear, the fallout from the grand experiment is already affecting our quality of life and future prospects. While the wealthy continue to see their wealth soar to all new heights, real economic growth remains elusive and the standard of living is in decline for the majority of us. Savers now receive close to zero-percent interest on their savings, while the price of gasoline, rent, and groceries climb steadily. With government bond yields now trading well below the level of inflation, those who rely on pension funds and bonds for their retirement are being forced to seek whatever jobs they can find to help make ends meet. At the same time uncertainty is now the rule in the financial markets—especially in the emerging markets—and in a process authors John Mauldin and Jonathan Tepper liken to "picking up dimes in front of a steamroller," investors are chasing after riskier and riskier investments in pursuit of some small return on their investments. In Code Red , John Mauldin and Jonathan Tepper perform an amazing feat: not only do they bring monetary policy down to earth for the average saver and investor, they make subjects such as quantitative easing, financial repression, currency wars, bubble economies and inflation, and their impact on our everyday lives and financial futures, compelling reading. Just as importantly, they arm you with time-tested strategies for surviving and thriving in these tumultuous times. You'll discover how to spot and capitalize on market bubbles. And you'll learn proven money management techniques for insulating yourself against inflation, reducing risk through diversification, profiting from precious metals, commodities, and other real assets through managed futures funds, and more. At this point it's anybody's guess if current monetary policies will succeed in creating sustained growth or if they will fail miserably leading the world into high levels of inflation. What is certain though is that those policies are producing all sorts of unintended consequences—most of them bad for the average saver and investor. Read Code Red and find out what the central bankers would rather you didn't know and how to protect your savings from the coming crisis.

4.0 out of 5 stars It's time to be scared... very scared 11 Nov 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is an excellent book about the current economic climate of exceptional action by central bankers with quantitative easing and the suppression of interest rates.

It's written in a very easy to read and understand style and will help anyone gain a better understanding of how the economic situation could play out.

Conditions are generally deflationary as over-indebted consumers, companies and even governments look at how they can live within their incomes. But central banks are doing their best to cause some inflation and weaken interest rates.

It's a dangerous game.

After all, central bankers showed that they couldn't be relied on to do the right things when the economic situation was playing out on conventional rules. It's very optimistic to think that they will get it right when we are no longer playing to the rules.

The sub-title "How To Protect Your Savings From The Current Crisis" may mislead you into thinking that you're going to get much clearer advice and ideas than you do.

It introduces Harry Browne's Permanent Portfolio idea which I like
The Permanent Portfolio: Harry Browne's Long-Term Investment Strategy
and explains the importance of diversification but the message I got was...

You're likely to lose money, whatever you do as a saver and investor.

That's because the past and future actions of the authorities mean cash and bonds are likely to lose value under inflationary conditions and asset prices have been driven into bubble territory.

i.e. if you sit on the sidelines in cash you're in trouble and if you stay invested, you're also likely to be in trouble.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great to read a book about the hear and now. 16 Feb 2014
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I read Endgame at Christmas and this one last week, I also signed up to John's e mails, it's good to get a blow by blow account of how this un-folds. The difficulty is still how you manage your personal finances in this situation. But at least this gives you an understanding of what's going on.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not quite what it says on the tin 19 Jan 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a great book for anyone wanting to understand the causes behind the current financial crisis and why the deep rooted problems of debt have not gone away. It explains with well researched and relevant data to suggest that the current approach taken by the Fed and other central banks to monetise their debt with QE is not solving the problem just kicking it down the road.
The place where it fails is the "How to protect your savings from the coming crisis" bit. I found nothing revealing or novel in the proposed Diversify and Buy good companies response. Duhhh. That said this is still worth buying as it's well written and has plenty of support for it central argument which is "We are still in very deep do-do"

4.0 out of 5 stars The publishers should be ashamed 2 Feb 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I bought the hardback edition of this book and it is so riddled with errors that I assume it has not been given even a once-over by a competent proof-reader. I am not clever with graphs and found some of those in the book unreadable because of poor reproduction. It also has very few references to sources and no bibliography.
Apart from that it was an easy and interesting read and added quite a lot to my understanding and knowledge of the times we are living through.
