From the Inside Flap
In the wake of declining stock prices, the bursting of the real estate bubble, and a weakening dollar, the American economy is poised for a prolonged contraction and U.S. stocks will suffer a protracted bear market, so predicted seasoned Wall Street prognosticator Peter Schiff in his 2008 bestseller, The Little Book of Bull Moves in Bear Markets. Now updated for 2010, in The Little Book of Bull Moves, the CNBC-dubbed "Doctor Doom" explains in the same straightforward and accessible style that was the signature of his first book:
- The causes of the current financial crisis, including how the bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers triggered the market meltdown
- How healthcare legislation will likely prove to be the stake through the heart of our already fragile economy
- How the dollar's downward trend is likely to continue, especially under the Obama administration's economic policies, which only provide a temporary illusion of recovery
- How the real collapseincluding a cataclysmic upheaval of the American way of life as we know itis yet to come
Filled with the sort of insightful commentary, inventive metaphors, and prescriptive advice readers have come to expect from Schiff, The Little Book of Bull Moves shows you commonsense ways to successfully implement various bull moves so that you can preserve, and even grow your wealth in an economy exper iencing high inflation, collapsed markets, and rising interest rates coupled with declining currencies.
For investors who understand that the worst is yet to come, but don't know what to do about it, and for those for whom a new economic and financial anxiety has taken hold, The Little Book of Bull Moves offers timely insights into using a conservative, nontraditional investment strategy to protect your portfolio and even profit during these uncertain economic times and those to come.

The book makes a number of very prescient observations and predictions, resulting in long term investment advice. US legislators have totally lost their way on economic policy.
There is a second collapse coming. Stocks are in long term secular bear market. Stay out of cash and bonds. TIPs provide inadequate protection against inflation. Reserve currency status postpones balance decoupling. It is China that will benefit from a currency "divorce". Inflation is much worse than reported in the CPI and PPI. Schiff makes it out to be 8-10% about in line with the money dilution by printing of debt. There is a risk of hyperinflation in our future. Schiff recommends gold and silver, foreign currencies and dividend paying securities. BRICS are well for speculative accounts.
He sees 2010-20 as a decade of severe adjustment. We are no longer the land of opportunity. Strangely, Schiff sees light at the end of the tunnel, something I fail to see yet. This is good long term investment advice.Read more ›
2. If foreign currency is spent in the American market place, foreign dollars compete with domestic dollars sending prices higher.
3. Foreigners bought dollars. Foreign currency is converted to dollars to buy items in the American Market. As demand increases, dollar price increases.
4. Efforts to combat recession through stimulus measures mean more money chasing a given supply of goods, inflation.
5. The dollar will decline even though interest rates will inevitability rise. A nontraditional investment approach is required, getting out of the US dollar and into commodities, precious metals, and equities in foreign countries.
6. Timing when to invest was more critical than if to invest. As the global economy dropped into recession, foreign countries spent heavily to subsidize the dollar and massive buying of the dollar occurred. The perception was the US economy was the safe haven to move money. Foreign equities values dropped off sharply, as the recession deepened.
7. We have to compare changes in nominal prices to price changes in commodities (Precious Metals, Agriculture commodities). Commodities correctly adjust to inflation. Commodity price inflation is the standard by which to measure prices.
8. Foreigners accumulate dollars. If foreigners spend their dollars to buy American companies through sovereign wealth funds then earnings streams will be diverted back to foreign owners.
9. How do foreign governments adjust their currencies?Read more ›

From the Malcom Gladwell school of 'proof by example', Schiff makes a lot of unsubstantiated claims about inflation, and his doom and gloom arguments hinge on that. Read morePublished on July 28, 2012 by bitz
