About the Author
[-]Prepare for the coming Reset
[-]In all likelihood gold will be re-introduced as one of the pillars of this next phase in the global financial system. The prediction is that gold could be revalued at $ 7,000 per troy ounce. By looking past the American 'smokescreen' surrounding gold and the dollar long ago, China and Russia have been accumulating massive amounts of gold reserves, positioning themselves for a more prominent role in the future to come. The reset will come as a shock to many. The Big Reset will help everyone who wants to be fully prepared.
[-]Note: The Dutch edition titled De Big Reset will be published in April.
[-]"This is a wonderful history and description of gold and it would be in everyone's interest to understand it's conclusion." ---Eric Sprott
[-]"An outstanding book about the coming transfer of the economic world power due to the decline of the world supremacy of the United States. Written from an economic point of view it leads to the same result as in the famous book of the late Harvard Professor Samuel Huntington "The Clash of Civilizations". Willem Middelkoop's best book so far." --- Louk de Wilde, former CEO Fortis Switzerland
[-]"A fascinating book: The Big Reset by @ wmiddelkoop! Must Read!" --- Perry Feenstra, Head of Economics desk RTL News / RTL Z

Most of my friends' eyes just glaze over when I try to explain the issues, to the point where I have simply given up. So I was delighted to discover this book, which is highly accessible to the average reader. It contains a minimum of financial jargon; instead, it provides very clear and careful exposition of each area contributing to the overall problem. It is as if the author constructs a large mosaic by building out each important individual subject first, and then assembling these into an otherwise complex composition, so at the end you can stand back and fully comprehend (and accept) the complete picture.
Many books on similar subjects are marred by the use of inflammatory rhetoric, unsupported claims, and sweeping generalizations of doom-and-gloom. This book does none of that. Instead, it uses very calm and precise, if simple, language.Read more ›
Willem Middelkoop's ‘finest’ hour came when shortly after he published his book “Als de dollar valt” (which gets a surprising translation as “If the dollar collapses”, instead of “When the dollar collapses” which is more in line with its core message), the financial crisis of 2007-2008 hit the world and the Dutch economy went seriously south. Numerous appearances on national television followed, where Willem Middelkoop was invited as the dutch Dr Doom, as he was, like Nouriel Roubini, one of the very few to predict the crisis and thus capable of explaining the world going crazy during those days of deepest financial turmoil.
The Big Reset then is his first book in English and he uses the occasion to summarize his earlier books, while providing an very interesting update (more on that later) on the central premise of his work: that all fiat currencies are mortal, the end for the dollar as sole world reserve currency is nigh and there is only 1 form of real money. The latter, you guessed it, is gold. All these changes are coming upon us as part of the ‘Big Reset’.
This may hardly be a new insight in today’s world, where the likes of Max Keiser, James Rickards, Marc Faber and others hit the spotlights regularly with their latest views on how the financial world stumbles from the one crisis to the next, but what this book brings to the table is a succinctly written yet complete overview of where it all began and how it will end.Read more ›

If you are investing in the dinar, the dong or other currencies YOU WANT TO READ THIS BOOK. All fiat currencies fail, they have a 100% failure rate. Gold and silver will be part of the new world currency. Will SDR's be the new currency of the world? Will you have to get out of all paper currencies, paper gold and silver? The author goes into great detail about manipulation about various markets, specifically interest rates, gold, and silver.
The appendix is great because it shows all of the fines that various banks have had to pay since 2000, it totals $100 BILLION!
