Tips on how to keep your portfolio performing even when the market isn t. ( TNT Magazine, August 2010). Schiff makes a lot of interesting and valuable points. (The Market, May 2011).

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 collapse—including a cataclysmic upheaval of the American way of life as we know it—is 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.

This is a much better book that 'Crash Proof 2.0' by the same author. Written in 2008 it's already a bit out of date by 2011. It's a combination of economic prognosis and investment advise, with the long term economic outlook the more valuable aspect. Investment wise, Schiff's recommendations are currently losers, probably because he neglects to provide assistance with all important timing. Schiff generally predicts that the American economy is becoming unglued and bad times are coming as our government continues to overspend and devalue the dollar, with no end in sight. It's likely worse than Schiff states. He's wrong in saying that services can't be exported. India is building a cottage industry in accounting and call service. It won't stop there as the Internet reduces the effect of distance.

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.

Great book by one of only a few people who predicted the housing bubble. Peter Schiff, Jim Rogers, Marc Faber, and Congressman Ron Paul all predicted the tech bubble and the housing bubble years in advanced. They all precisely explained what was causing them and what would happen when the bubbles burst. Any book from the people I listed is a "must read" for people who want to understand economics and the effect of government involvement in the economy.

1. Invest in foreign companies with a. high dividend earnings b. participating in global exports c. part of an economy that is growing (China, India, Brazil, Russia, Mexico).

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?

Brief and not much new if you've read his previous books. There are the updates for 2010, confirming he predicted most things. I liked the 50,000 foot view of investment alternatives. The more radical statements near the end were surprising for somebody that had political hopes, but they give you a good feel for how serious he views our economic problems.

Great book and full of useful information. I will continue to buy Peter Schiff's books because I learn so much about the economy and the way money works. These books should be standard reading material in any college classroom.

You will gain nothing in this book that you cannot gain from watching about an hours worth of his monologues on YouTube.

Once again Peter Schiff knocks the ball out of the park - Home run. If you don't read all of Schiff's work and/or listen to his daily radio talk show schiffradio.com you are missing the whole picture. Nobody sees the economic picture as clear as my #1 economist. Keep up the great work Peter.

Another doomsayer's book. Actually, the author thrives in this doomsday business - his father started it, he just continues the tradition. There is always an audience for that and that's fine with me. We do need this kind of books to balance the other extreme - overall rosy mantra "to buy and hold". But if you really want to understand the market and the economy to make informative decisions, this one is the best for that. Look somewhere else - too one-sided approach, too much self-promotion
