Brill buy, thoroughly recommended, enjoyable read., 20 Mar. 2010
This book engages with fundamental free-market economics and applies them to the current financial situation primarily in the USA but with global perspective. It explains why the crash was coming for years, why the government stimulus and bailouts is the completely wrong fiscal policy for its citizens. Monetary policy is also covered with a warning of high inflation from the treasury printing money to cover government debts. This combines to predict a massive collapse in the US dollar, higher inflation and the biggest (coming) depression of all time.
The same fiscal and monetary policy was undertaken by every western government at the time of the crash and therefore makes this book highly relevant to readers in all these countries.
This book has opened my eyes to the world of government interference in the free market economies of the west. It explains where to invest your funds to protect them from the collapse of the dollar and where your funds will grow -gold, silver, overseas asian economies. The author puts his money where his mouth is - he does what he preaches many "guru's" do not.
This is the best investment you will ever buy - knowledge of how the global economy works and where to put your money.
