"Duncan writes like a man who's already seen tomorrow."

"I held a class for about 150 people on the book entitled "The Dollar Crisis," authored by Richard Duncan. If you want to better understand why the real estate bubble bust and the crash of the dollar will probably lead to a prolonged recession, you may want to read this book sooner rather than later. In a nutshell, we really do not have a real estate bubble... the world is in a currency bubble. In other words, the governments of the world have printed too much "funny" money and cash will soon turn to trash. Even if you are not in real estate or are saving dollars, you may want to read this book to find out what you need to invest in now, before the bubble bursts. If you are in stocks and mutual funds, you definitely want to read this book."
—Robert Kiyosaki, author of Rich Dad, Poor Dad
"I would like every one of my subscribers to click on to Amazon.com and buy a new book that has just been published entitled, The Dollar Crisis, Causes, Consequences, Cures. The book costs around twenty bucks and is worth ten times that amount. The author, Richard Duncan has a great background and is as smart as they come. He explains why he sees a crashing dollar and a severe recession coming up in the plus a world recession. This is no wild-eyed guru, this is a guy who knows what he's talking about and a guy who understands money and the world monetary system – he's worked for both the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund. Please buy this book!"
—Richard Russell, Dow Theory Letters

"Richard Duncan... is one of the brightest financial analysts I know. Richard is the author of one of my favorite books called The Dollar Crisis: Causes, Consequences, Cures."
—John Mauldin, Thoughts from the Frontline
"For a preview of how it might play out, consult Richard Duncan's recently revised book, The Dollar Crisis: Causes, Consequences, Cures. Just try to sleep after digesting its thesis that the world's biggest economy is looking like a huge and growing Ponzi scheme."
—William Pesek Jr., International Herald Tribune
As a result the U.S. dollar became the world's reserve currency.
Even that comparison is not entirely accurate, because guns actually do provide a much simpler method for a person to take another's life than other available means.
It is a very well researched book and therefore very informative and educating.
Wonderful read. The author has lots of stats & references, which is essential in an opinion-based book like this (in my view). Read morePublished 1 month ago by Boston suburban dweller
I was very disapointed with this book. It is completely outdated and the claimed update was actually years ago. It does not really address the current currency crisis at all.Published 15 months ago by bingo-jim
