From the Inside Flap

The dollar is in trouble. It has fallen against other currencies for the past three years, and now its orderly retreat could well become a rout. This spells potential disaster for the American economy--and potential riches for a few smart investors. In "The Coming 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 plunge, and how you can profit from the resulting financial crisis.
The U.S. today is the world's biggest debtor nation, printing money with abandon to sustain the illusion of prosperity. The federal government owes $7 trillion and its debt is soaring. As a society, we owe more than $37 trillion, or about $500,000 per family of four. Our trade deficit with other countries is staggering, and to finance this mountain of debt we're flooding the world with dollars. The inevitable result: The dollar will 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.
Traditionally a haven during times of uncertainty, gold has risen dramatically since 2001. By the fall of 2004 it was up by nearly 50%, at over $400 an ounce. But this is just the beginning.
James Turk, a leading gold authority and the founder of GoldMoney.com, and veteran financial writer John Rubino, show readers how to capitalize on gold's dramatic climb. In "The Coming Collapse of the Dollar, Turk and Rubino reveal which stocks and bonds will falter as the dollar declines and why that decline is virtually inevitable. They offer strategies for using gold coins, gold stocks, gold-baseddigital currencies, and other hard assets to create a "profitable portfolio. And they explain how to make the most of your gold and other precious metal holdings, identifying the opportunities and pitfalls of buying gold mining stocks and the mutual funds that invest in them.
America's debt binge has put its economy at grave risk. The value of the dollar is falling; many stocks are once again wildly overvalued; and bonds, tied to an ever-diminishing dollar, are a disaster waiting to happen. By investing in gold and other hard assets, Turk and Rubino explain how you can protect yourself from these dangers.
"The Coming Collapse of the Dollar and How to Profit from It is a must read for every investor, whatever the size of his or her portfolio.

Format: Paperback
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?

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.

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.

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??????????
