Editorial Reviews

From the Inside Flap

A book that is certain to spark controversy within the financial media and throughout the halls of government, The Coming Bond Market Collapse sounds a clarion call to investors, business leaders, and policymakers. Author Michael Pento, a noted adherent of the Austrian school of economics theories, compellingly argues that the United States is fast approaching the end stage of the biggest asset bubble in history. He describes how the bursting of that bubble will trigger a massive interest rate shock that will send the U.S. consumer-driven economy and the U.S. government—now pumped up by massive Treasury debt—into bankruptcy, an event that, in turn, will send violent shockwaves throughout the global economy.

Backed by a wealth of historical and economic data, Mr. Pento examines how the policies followed by both the Federal Reserve and private industry have led, inexorably, to the impending disaster, and he exposes alarming parallels between the U.S. and European debt crises.

But this book isn't all doom and gloom. A top market analyst who accurately foretold the bursting of the housing bubble in most major print and TV media, Michael Pento also provides well-reasoned solutions that government, industry, and individual investors can take to insulate themselves against the coming crisis.

Just as importantly, Mr. Pento delivers proven strategies and tools investors can use to successfully navigate the rocky times ahead and to not only survive the crisis, but capitalize on it.

Thoughtful, meticulously researched and cogently argued, The Coming Bond Market Collapse:

  • Paints an alarmingly vivid picture of the inevitable interest rate shock that will send consumers and the government into bankruptcy
  • Explains how the bubble was created and proposes realistic policy solutions that government can deploy to cushion the shock
  • Explores debt debacles throughout history and speculates what a bond market crisis will look like and how it will affect the standard of living in the United States and globally
  • Compares the shaky state of the U.S. economy to the EU and Japanese economies and speculates on how much longer the fiat currency model can continue to sustain them
  • Explains why retirees, in particular, will be at risk as real estate prices decline, pensions weaken, and the bond bubble bursts
  • Provides sound investment strategies for protecting yourself and your hard-earned assets against the coming financial apocalypse

The Coming Bond Market Collapse gives you the information you need to make sense of and prepare for the looming economic debacle. It provides you with tested strategies for insulating yourself against the most violent shocks that follow. And it arms you with tools for thriving financially, even in the midst of what could be a disaster worse than the Great Depression.

From the Back Cover

Praise for The Coming Bond Market Collapse

"Few people possess Michael's understanding of monetary policy, interest rates and currencies, and their impact on financial markets. This book is mandatory reading for anyone who wants to know where the bond market is headed and why."
—Michael Ozanian, Executive Editor of Forbes Media

"Michael Pento's The Coming Bond Market Collapse is an act of love. It is an act of love for his country because he stands apart from so many half-hearted commentators who are unwilling to give America what it needs, which is a clear, plainspoken, honest warning about what our ruling class is leading us into. It is also an act of love for investors, too, in that it prepares them to deal with what is very likely to happen given the fact that, so far, America has failed to heed those warnings. Michael ends the book with a quote from Thomas Paine: 'These are the times that try men's souls.' True, but they are also times that will try men's portfolios, and The Coming Bond Market Collapse will help them withstand both trials."
—Jerry Bowyer, Editor in Chief of Affluent Investor and Forbes contributor

"This book is a treatise on the logic and economics behind the upcoming collapse of the U.S. debt market. It is not written to scare the public, nor does it use hyperbole or sensationalism. The work simply explains the dynamics behind the bond bubble and how its demise will affect the global economy and markets. Most importantly, it offers a solution to how the United States can escape some of the fallout from the collapse, but only if we take the appropriate action now. This book is a blessing for the American consumer and investor and should be mandatory reading for anyone who desires to have their portfolio thrive during the tumult that lies just ahead."
—Peter Grandich, founder of Grandich.com and Grandich Publications, LLC, and editor of The Grandich Letter

"If my earlier books did not convince you that the debt and dollar bubbles propping up America's artificial economy are destined to pop, with horrific consequences for our nation when they do, this well-argued refresher course from Mike Pento is a must-read. Those already accustomed to receiving their 'Pentonomics' in small portions are sure to enjoy this larger dose."
—Peter Schiff, bestselling author of Crash Proof 2.0 and The Real Crash, host of the nationally syndicated Peter Schiff Show, and CEO of Euro Pacific Capital and Euro Pacific Precious Metals

If you are interested in a a summary of the horrendous financial situation we are in and one mans opinion of what we need to do as a country, then buy this book. If you are looking for an in-depth examination of where to place your money to preserve it during a coming economic collapse, you should pass. I was expecting the latter and was disappointed. This is really the author explaining where he thinks the nations financial problems are and his prescription. Only the last paragraph discusses what you should do with your money, and it's a pretty superficial review at that. You are certainly not going to walk away with a firm grasp of what to do avoid a coming bond market collapse, as the title implies. Also, while I agree with much of the authors opinions regarding where the nation stands financially, he repeats his basic opinions over and over again in each chapter which gets tiring and makes the read much longer than it need be.

I've seen a few interviews with Mr. Pento on Bloomberg. Jumped at the chance to hear more. I couldn't put it down! This is one of the most well written, colorful books I've read. He covers ALL the complexities of the past market conditions in simple easy to understand analogies. All the players are given unforgettable character. The analogies are amazingly clear and very humorous. Oh, and if you want to know how to invest your money before the really tough economic times, get this book.

Like most good things in life, it's about timing, accuracy and execution. Mr. Pento's book is spot on and invaluable reading as he makes the complexity of todays marketplace easy to understand and possible to make sound decisions around. What else can you ask for? I've seen Michael a few times on CNBC and wanted more...... this is it. Highly reccomended.

I was honored to get an advanced copy of the book and gave it my strongest endorsement. There are only two types on Wall Street; Those who say what they think or those who say what they think you want to hear and it sells. Michael is clearly not a member of the latter and I can assure you there are many in those financial ivory towers and in government who don't want the public to know what Michael tells us in this book. In 30 years on Wall Street I can tell you no book I ever read demanded to be read more than this one.

The title of this book and its subscipt are awesome, but don't be fooled. Buying and reading this book will waste both time and money. I read a lot of books about investing, the economy and monetary policy. The Coming Bond Market Collapse is a must-miss. First, the writing is ameteurish. In fact, the author sounds a lot like my Uncle Wilbur on a rant at a holiday dinner. I don't disagree with him, but... snore. Second, the purpose of the book? Primarily, to sell his services as an investment advisor. I learned nothing new. Although he promises to tell the reader how survive the demise of the U.S. debt market, he devotes way too little time to it and doesn't make meaningful suggestions. Same old same old.

Pento provides the reader with a firm appreciation of the situation we are now in with a tart sense a humor and a generally flowing narrative style. The several instances of awkward grammar and incorrect word usage could have used a better editor, but he still makes his points, some of which strike with the intellectual force of a Hellfire missile. Unfortunately, Pento seems to have been seduced by the powerful understanding that Austrian School economics can provide into believing that he can prophesy the economic future, just like Marxists and Keynesians. This is a common malady of those in the investment world who are introduced to the brilliant insights of this school of thought so abjectly neglected by the mainstream of my field of learning. With regard to his investment ideas, I have great sympathy with his doubts about the applicability of Modern Portfolio Theory now, thanks to the wildly experimental policies of the Federal Reserve. But his tactical suggestions are too numerous for most investors to be able to manage and he fails to appreciate that correlative relationships in the current environment are not static. I think many readers would prefer Pento's humorous story style of where we are now versus David Stockman's forceful and exquisitely detailed analysis of the same situation in The Great Deformation, particularly if they do not have the rigorous financial background to be able to understand the creation of the Zombie Corporations we now have.

This is a good analysis of the current situation the world economy is in, but was marred by the many basic grammatical errors on almost every page. For example: "As bond holder's sense this inevitability"; "decades of profligate government profligacy"; "800 years of data tell us a countries growth rate will falter". The book needs editing.

The author makes a good case for his premise. It is interesting that he expects it to occur much earlier than I had originally thought. However, the US isn't the first country to go down this road, and we can learn from those others who refused to recognize the long run when the laws of economics prevail.
