I dabble in the stock market and this book provides another arrow in my quiver of knowledge to help foresee what is coming.
John Allen. Australia
All fiat currencies have a common story -- what starts out as a receipt for something of actual value becomes debased through fractional reserve banking and excess money and credit generation. This leads to an illusory economic boom, followed inexorably by a collapse -- the fiat currency becomes worthless through deficit spending and excess issuing. Anyone holding it at the end loses everything.
This book will do more to preserve your wealth than 1000 financial and investing guides combined.
The book then goes on to talk about how governments ultimately end up making a fiat currency worth less through time, to the point of the currency becoming worthless.
Read this book! It will impact your life more than any book Oprah could recommend.
This is a historical book with great relevance to modern times.
I have a master's degree in management and finance - this is the BEST one
BOOK you can read.
