Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

Despite the surge in financial risk during what has become the Great Recession, gold—despite its 11-year rise against all major currencies and equity classes—inexplicably continues to be virtually absent in the largest investment portfolios, most notably those of global pension funds and insurance companies, which harbor trillions of dollars' worth of the world's assets. For the individual investor, the benefits of owning gold are substantial, yet gold continues to be misunderstood. $10,000 Gold explodes the myths and offers the reader a course of action.

$10,000 Gold takes a unique approach to the subject of gold as money. It shows the reader why gold will continue climbing to $10,000 an ounce and beyond, and proves the case by applying the same principles and wide-spectrum analysis that investors would undertake in any investment due diligence.

$10,000 Gold predicts that the well-established rules of value finance will eventually regain prominence as the debt-based thinking of the present day runs its course. The book looks at the world through a lens or vantage point of the gold mindset—the creation of a standard for evaluating all financial transactions based on the intrinsic value that gold possesses. The author, Nick Barisheff, encourages his readers to "think in terms of ounces not dollars," much like our grandparents did when their gold-backed dollars were a stable store of value.

The book, like its subject—gold—presents unmistakably stark truths. Over the last half century, we have passed through successive stages of unbridled growth, financial exuberance, speculation and unchecked fraud that preceded the hardship of a stubborn recession. Clearly, we can no longer depend on governments or the integrity of our leaders to look after us. We alone must be responsible for our own financial well-being and the liberation that an understanding of owning gold delivers.

Ultimately, $10,000 Gold offers a positive message at a time when readers are being inundated with all manner of articles, blogs and documentaries that seek mainly to point blame at Wall Street/Washington corruption. At this stage in the fiat money cycle, such messages cause frustration and often reinforce the impotence of the individual. Nick Barisheff seeks to remind his readers that they as individuals can have a positive financial future no matter what governments, Wall Street or foreign powers do. The case for owning gold has never been stronger, as the policies of some central banks are demonstrating. $10,000 Gold will give you new insight and welcome relief in a time of financial turmoil.

From the Back Cover

$10,000 Gold is far more than a financial book. It is a tool of survival and prosperity. It leads the reader to a deeper understanding by showing the global economic and demographic trends that support a rational prediction for gold's future value. $10,000 Gold advocates ownership of physical, uncompromised bullion and explains the benefits of a safe haven that has preserved wealth for more than 5,000 years.

Praise for $10,000 Gold

"Nick Barisheff, who had the foresight to start a precious metals mutual fund in January of 2002 when gold was $284.65 per ounce, is now predicting $10,000 per ounce gold. This book explains why he is probably right, again."
— Michael B. O'Higgins, author of Beating the Dow

"Nick Barisheff is one of Canada's leading authorities on gold bullion. In this seminal book, he shares his encyclopedic knowledge with us and, more importantly, tells us how to use gold to protect personal wealth. A must-read for all serious investors."
— Gordon Pape, author of Retirement's Harsh New Realities

"Mr. Barisheff's well-researched and very readable book...explains precisely why gold, now, is a wise investment."
— David Ranson, President and director of research, H. C. Wainwright & Co. Economics Inc.

"In $10,000 Gold, Nick Barisheff makes the best case to think gold prices are likely heading higher. The arguments are compelling and well-articulated and if you don't own gold bullion before reading this book, I believe Nick will change your mind. If you want peace of mind in the turbulent decade that lies directly ahead, this book will help you along that journey."
— James Puplava, CEO PFS Group, Host of Financial Sense Newshour

"Nick Barisheff pulls no punches. This is a must-read for all outside the precious metals community."
— David Morgan, Founder, Silver-Investor.com

This is the final stage of the U.S. dollars role as the de facto world reserve currency.
Besides gold, the book pushes for silver and platinum as well.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
First, my disclaimer. I am a retired financial adviser. I read a LOT of books on investing. I am contrary by nature---the type of person who buys chocolate when the rest of the world demands vanilla. I am a big believer in John D Rockefeller's quote:" The way to make money is to buy when blood is running in the streets". I interpret this to mean that the time to consider an investment is when it is widely reviled, and investors are bailing out.
The title of this book drew me in. I wondered how people would react to a book proclaiming $10,000/ounce gold. On May 13, 2013, the day the book was released, the price of gold closed at $1430 per ounce, down from a high of $1886 in 2011. By mid May, investors were fleeing from gold, and the price continued to drop. I wondered how the author would make a case for owning gold, and how persuasive his argument would be.
He makes an interesting case for owning gold. The first part of the book is entitled, "The Framework of $10,000 Gold". In it, he explains why gold is important, how money is created, the role of oil and gold relative to the dollar, and the aging population of the US and Canada. His explanation of how money is created, and how the Federal Reserve System, is well written and readily understood. He effectively presents the myths of gold ownership, and the legacy of gold's performance between 1980 and 2000. This section is very informative and worth reading.
The second part of the book discusses owning gold---why you should own it, how to buy it, and what form of gold should you buy are well presented if not particularly persuasive. If you believe in owning gold as wealth preservation, you will like this book. If you are a contrarian like I am, this book might convince you to consider gold and silver as investments.

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
This book is not only everything you always wanted to know about gold, but it's a better expose` of what's going on in this world than the books that are supposed to be exposes`. It's a wakeup call. It's a book for everybody, and everybody should read it.

I appreciate very much that it is written in layman's terms. I have always heard that a person who truly knows his subject can make it simple for others, and this author has done this par excellence. It's a privilege to be able to read a book by someone with Mr. Barisheff's experience. All too many of the "gold books" out there today are written by people looking to position themselves as experts but who lack the in-depth experience that Mr. Barisheff has.

The cover flap talks about how the author presents us with "stark truths." You better believe it! I read some passages from this book to my husband, and he was shocked and disbelieving. He wanted me to check to see if some of the things the author said were true, like the fact that this country has lost 50,000 manufacturing jobs a month since 2001. That's a huge amount of jobs. I knew that we had lost a lot, but when you see the actual numbers, it's truly staggering. I was able to confirm this. Then there was the statement that the average price of a house in Detroit is $6,000.00. My husband said, "I don't believe it. You need to look that up." I looked on the Internet and saw that some houses were selling for $1.00. I could see how with houses at that price to add into the average you might get down to a $6,000.00 average.

I had so many questions answered in this book, like:
1) What are we really doing in the Middle East?
2) Will oil prices zoom up again?
3) Are gold mines really a good investment?

Format: Hardcover Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
Gold as an investment probably evokes more emotion than just about any other asset class. As this book points out until fairly recently gold was money and the US dollar was convertible into gold, but in 1971 President Nixon took the US off the gold standard. Now that the US dollar is not backed by anything other than the US government, the dollar can float in value against the gold price.

The book starts out giving a good introduction of the historical lessons learned from previous fiat currencies and the 5 stages the paper money cycle goes through. We are currently at stage 4 of the process according to the author where growth is slowing and the debt overhang is great. He then goes into the creation of money and debt, which touches on the Federal Reserve as a private company and the mysterious ownership.

Chapters 3&4 touch on some of the macro forces that are working on the world economy such as end of cheap oil, world population and the global aging of the population.

Chapter 5&6 start looking at gold bullion as an investment and the myths associated with bullion ownership. The long bear market in gold from 1980 to 2000 is described.

The rest of the book talks about why and how to own gold as an investment. It's important to understand if you own the actual bullion or a paper proxy for the metal.

As of the current year mid 2013, gold has reverted in value to the dollar around thirteen hundred per ounce, it hard to see how the US can fix it's budget issues and how debt creation can slow. What will gold be worth in US dollars 5-10 years from now? Is the authors premise of 10,000 dollar gold plausible? Only time will tell, but the case he make is sound. Most of this information was not new to me, but if you are wondering what is driving the price of gold higher this book is good.
