Book Description

1 Jan 2008
The dollar is in trouble. Its value on foreign exchange markets has been falling for the past six years, and now its gradual decline is about to become a rout. This spells big trouble for the American economy—but potential riches for smart investors. In The 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 continue to plunge, and how you can profit from the resulting financial crisis.

The United States today is the world’s biggest debtor nation. To finance this mountain of debt, we’re flooding the world with dollars. The resulting oversupply of dollars will cause its value to 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.

James Turk, a leading gold authority and the founder of, and John Rubino, editor of the popular Web site offer strategies for investing in gold coins, gold stocks, gold-based digital currencies, and other hard assets to create a profitable portfolio.

The Collapse of the Dollar and How to Profit from It is a must read for every citizen and investor.

5.0 out of 5 stars A prophetic warning 8 April 2011
It's not looking good for the dollar. Lower and lower it falls against other currencies, just as gold and silver prices move relentlessly higher. Just 10 years ago, the Dollar Index (USDX) stood at just under 120. Since then it's been more or less continuously downhill for the greenback, and today the Dollar Index is just under 76 - not far from record lows.

This decline is all the more striking when one compares it with the bull market action in precious metals over the last decade. Though the dollar has perhaps the furthest to fall owing to its world reserve currency status, the truth is that all fiat currencies are failing, albeit at different rates.

This book predicted these problems and gave advice on how ordinary investors could protect themselves from the fallout.

Back in 2004 when it was first published, the gold price was around $400 per ounce. You could buy an ounce of silver for $6. Crude oil averaged $34 per barrel. Those who took the authors' advice and invested in hard assets have done very well over the last seven years.

But past returns are no guarantee of future performance. So what has changed since 2004? Could investors be staring at what many in the mainstream media are quick to call a "gold bubble", and could the dollar be ready to rise, Lazurus-like, from its grave?

To answer this some simple questions are in order. Has the US government eliminated its deficit? Has its total debt been declining? Are the largest states such as California, New York, Illinois, Texas and Florida running budget surpluses? And have the states and the Federal government found ways of funding the trillions of dollars-worth of pension and healthcare liabilities on their books?

5.0 out of 5 stars Everyone should read this. 17 July 2012
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Other reviews here cover the book's content very well, so I don't need to go over it again. What i would do is urge everyone to read this even if you are generally sceptical of (supposed) doom and gloom financial texts (this book actually offers very practical positive solutions and strategies). This is a very well written, readable, well argued and constructive book covering one particular view of the future outcome for the US dollar which will affect us all. To date, it has been amazingly prescient and it's not over yet. Whether you agree with it or not, you should at least read it to challenge your faith in the current financial system's sustainability. I personally find that, so infrequent, or rather underreported (it's not in many peoples vested interest), are other examples of these types of crises, many are prepared to stay in their status quo bubble and believe that what's existed for decades will still be there tomorrow and forever more. This book gives a lot of historical examples and reasons for why you should question that ASAP.

Great book that outlines with great foresight and perception the problems we now face in the world, what the outcome is likely to be and how you can benefit from it. Written in a manner easy to understand too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent. 28 April 2013
By Bill
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Very interesting book which was written back in 2007 just befor the 2008 recession and man they were right and thats one reason why i think what they predict for the future is going to be right also. Very useful But i don't believe in the paper gold and silver investing part because it's common sense that if you don't hold it you don't own it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth reading 27 Feb 2013
By A.Sud
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Emphasizes the premise that the Americans cannot keep supporting the World economy through borrowing and printing Dollars.

Common sense says that is right, but how long can the Status Quo go on, before it implodes. I am sure the theory is right but more helpful, would be knowing how long before the system falls down. in years, 10, 20??????????
