Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com Review

For Jake Bernstein, the millennium is bad news. The stock market will crash, panic will ensue, and today's paper millionaires will become tomorrow's paupers. In Beat the Millennium Crash, Bernstein, a noted futures trader whose previous books include The Compleat Day Trader and How the Futures Markets Work, sees a confluence of trends and patterns that will culminate in a dramatic stock market panic that could be triggered by problems associated with the Y2K bug.

At the heart of Bernstein's argument is the idea that interest rates determine the direction of the stock market and overall economic activity. He believes rates are approaching a 54-year bottom, and that "there is no reason to believe that the patterns in interest rates have changed or that the market has ceased to be cyclical." Rising rates will cripple the current bull market, and investments that are out of favor today, such as precious metals, will be one way to profit in this gloomy environment. While Bernstein doesn't think that we'll all turn into pumpkins at midnight on New Year's Eve, he does see the end to the current stock market party happening by 2004. Bernstein particularly likes gold as a hedge to this bearish scenario as well as a healthy amount of cash. No one likes a party pooper or a contrarian, but his advice just might profit those who listen. --Harry C. Edwards

From Library Journal

Bernstein is the author of more than 20 books, including The New Prosperity. Though his formal education is in clinical psychology and sociology, he works in the stocks and commodities markets. His forte is in uncovering patterns that have financial implications, particularly with respect to millennium problems such as Y2K. He offers some guidance in detecting what market sectors will have problems, where there are possible growth areas, and some basic strategies to deal with Y2K problems in bank accounts. Interesting pointers are presented for investing in metals (gold, platinum, palladium) as a component of a strategy. Overall, the book does a credible job of investor education, but the question is whether it has a reasonable shelf life. Regrettably, the answer is probably no.ASteven Silkunas, Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority, Philadelphia

Don't waste your money on this book. This guy has been preaching the proverbial doom and gloom scenario to anyone who will listen for as long as I can remember. His "financial meltdown" hyperbole is a complete scam, and the only thing that will suffer a crisis is this guy's reputation.

With his usual innate common sense, ( a rare commodity in itself ), Jake Bernstein calmly analyzes the millennium market and offers some surprising predictions, along with quite a few sound assessments, and outlines what actions are needed to be taken by today's astute investor. It's the wise one who will read, absorb and note the reality of these possible trends in this unique market. Some of the news may seem unflinchingly bad, but taken like that *spoonful of medicine*, and acted upon, fortunes instead of losses may be made. Read it and heed ... and thanks, Jake Bernstein, for another classic bit of analysis. Many will be indebted to you for the uncanny foresight in the pages of "Beat The Millennium Crash".

After reading Beat the Millennium Crash : How to Profit from the Coming Financial Crisis by Jake Bernstein, investors can begin to see the potential for gain rather than focusing on the problems associated with the Y2K bug. I agree with Mr. Bernstein in that we are due for a cyclical bottom in interest rates in the near future, and that a panic top in the stock market is certainly a possibility. The fear of investors losing access to their (online) investments, and thus their unrealized wealth for a period following the start of the new Millennium will certainly add fuel to this fire. This does not have to be a negative for investors willing to invest in long term gold stocks as Jake points out in this new text. Thanks Jake for breaking the mold of "Doom" and "Gloom" others seem to be so trapped in.

Inthe late1980's Bernstein wrote in his book The New Prosperity about a potential war in the mid east,the coming collapse of the japanese economy and a long bull trend for our economy in the nineties. He again plays the contrarian in Beat the Millenium crash.

The book gave be a clear understanding of what the Y2K thing means in the larger economic scheme of things. Easy to read non technical language made it an entertaining experience. Enjoyed his contrary point of view and specific analyses, forecasts etc. He may be right or he may be wrong but he expressed it clearly and w/out hedging his advice. Much food for thought and preparation. Didn't try to scare me and I appreciate that approach.

"Beating the Millenium Crash" is filled with "big picture" historical information & data to essentiallly remind us what history has taught,,that most economists are wrong at major turning points of the economy. Jake's writing is as clear as it is easy to read.
