The Road to Ruin by James Rickards

The Global Elite’s Secret Plan For the Next Financial Crisis

The global economy has made what seems like an incredible comeback after the financial crisis of 2008 Yet this comeback is artificial Central banks have propped up markets by keeping interest rates low and the supply of money freeflowing They won’t bail us out again next time And there will be a next time soon In The Road to Ruin bestselling author James Rickards identifies how governments around the world are secretly preparing an alternative strategy for the next big crisis a lockdown Instead of printing money to reliquify markets and prop up assets governments are preparing to close banks shut down exchanges and order powerful asset managers not to sell Theyre putting provisions in place that will allow them to do so legally What’s more the global elite has already started making their own preparations including hoarding cash and hard assets When the next one comes it will be the average investor who suffers most unless he or she heeds Rickards warning and prepares accordingly.

The Death of Money by James Rickards

The Coming Collapse of the International Monetary System

The next financial collapse will resemble nothing in history. . . . Deciding upon the best course to follow will require comprehending a minefield of risks, while poised at a crossroads, pondering the death of the dollar.

In the last few years, however, the risks have become too big to ignore. While Washington is gridlocked, our biggest rivals—China, Russia, and the oil-producing nations of the Middle East—are doing everything possible to end U.S. monetary hegemony. The potential results: Financial warfare. Deflation. Hyperinflation. Market collapse. Chaos.

Currency Wars by James Rickards

The Making of the Next Global Crisis

Currency wars are one of the most destructive and feared outcomes in international economics. At best, they offer the sorry spectacle of countries’ stealing growth from their trading partners. At worst, they degenerate into sequential bouts of inflation, recession, retaliation, and sometimes actual violence. Left unchecked, the next currency war could lead to a crisis worse than the panic of 2008.

Currency wars have happened before-twice in the last century alone-and they always end badly. Time and again, paper currencies have collapsed, assets have been frozen, gold has been confiscated, and capital controls have been imposed. And the next crash is overdue. Recent headlines about the debasement of the dollar, bailouts in Greece and Ireland, and Chinese currency manipulation are all indicators of the growing conflict.

Drawing on historical case studies, monetary theory, and behind-the-scenes access to the halls of power, Rickards shines a clarifying light on the events taking place, so investors understand what’s really happening and what they can do about it.

Why Gold? Why Now? by E.B. Tucker

The War Against Your Wealth and How to Win It

There’s a reason why the world’s elite count gold as a core asset. During periods of financial turmoil, it’s invaluable. Gold is the only asset that’s not someone else’s liability. Apartments rely on paying tenants, stocks rely on company profits, bonds rely on stable interest payments. Gold doesn’t rely on anyone or anything for its value. Tucker guides investors in simple terms through the ways to own gold, from physical bars, to coins, and even mining stocks. He reveals his favorite method, gold royalty companies. From a financial novice to an investment professional looking to get up to speed on the gold market, Why Gold? Why Now? is the essential guide to the world of gold.

End The Fed by Ron Paul

Most people think of the Fed as an indispensable institution without which the country’s economy could not properly function. But in End the Fed, Ron Paul draws on American history, economics, and fascinating stories from his own long political life to argue that the Fed is both corrupt and unconstitutional. It is inflating currency today at nearly a Weimar or Zimbabwe level, a practice that threatens to put us into an inflationary depression where $100 bills are worthless. What most people don’t realize is that the Fed — created by the Morgans and Rockefellers at a private club off the coast of Georgia — is actually working against their own personal interests. Congressman Paul’s urgent appeal to all citizens and officials tells us where we went wrong and what we need to do fix America’s economic policy for future generations.

The Revolution by Ron Paul

This Much Is True: You Have Been Lied To.

The government is expanding.

  • Taxes are increasing.
  • More senseless wars are being planned.
  • Inflation is ballooning.
  • Our basic freedoms are disappearing.

The Founding Fathers didn’t want any of this. In fact, they said so quite clearly in the Constitution of the United States of America. Unfortunately, that beautiful, ingenious, and revolutionary document is being ignored more and more in Washington. If we are to enjoy peace, freedom, and prosperity once again, we absolutely must return to the principles upon which America was founded. But finally, there is hope . .

The Real Crash by Peter D. Schiff

In The Real CrashNew York Times bestselling author Peter D. Schiff argues that America is enjoying a government-inflated bubble, one that reality will explode . . . with disastrous consequences for the economy and for each of us. Schiff demonstrates how the infusion of billions of dollars of stimulus money has only dug a deeper hole: the United States government simply spends too much and does not collect enough money to pay its debts, and in the end, Americans from all walks of life will face a crushing consequence.

We’re in hock to China, we can’t afford the homes we own, and the entire premise of our currency—backed by the full faith and credit of the United States—is false. Our system is broken, Schiff says, and there are only two paths forward. The one we’re on now leads to a currency and sovereign debt crisis that will utterly destroy our economy and impoverish the vast majority of our citizens.
