It's really hard to imagine a crumbling America, but the signs of dollar decay are frankly staring right at us. Being myopic is not the way to survive; being open to new ideas most certainly is the means to survive, perhaps even thrive in economic disaster.
At the very least please read this book with an open mind; certainly be skeptical of his conclusions, but please BE RECEPTIVE TO ALTERNATE FINANCIAL STRATEGIES. We Americans are treading in treacherous waters. We have never been this deeply in debt; we have never been so bereft of hope.
Politicians seem intent on bail-outs of banks, even auto manufacturers. No one is going to bail YOU out. Read this book; it may be the only parachute available for less than twenty bucks.
I am not ordinarily a Gloomy Gus, but I am a realist. I am sixty years old and have worked hard all my life. It's shocking how my investemnts have shrunk. This dog needs to learn new tricks, too. "The Dollar Meltdown" is a good place to start.
Think of Goyette as the anti-Greenspan: someone who can take a complicated subject and explicate it in such a way that you can actually understand it. If you want to be able to answer the four questions that constitute the sections mentioned above: Read this book!
The incredible surge in precious metals (and other commodities) is perfectly understandable when you understand the dynamics at work. Explaining the dynamics of the markets is one of the tasks of this book-- it succeeds.
This book is not a dry recitation of economic statistics. Statistics in themselves don't tell you much without a framework, a context, to view them from. What makes this book so fascinating is that is combines an reiteration of WHAT happened with WHY it happened. A nice blend of theory and practice.
If you want to protect yourself and family from the irresponsibility of the political classes and the Banksters, then you will find plenty of strategies in this book that will lessen the pain that we will all feel as we make our way through this depression.
Did I mention that it's well written? People who know Goyette through his work in talk radio in Phoenix are very familiar with his intellectual skills. I'm happy to report that he writes as well as he speaks. Nice work.
The book is organized into four sections:
I. Where We Are
II. How We Got There
III. What Happens Next
IV. What to Do
Goyette has done his homework, with a wide range of facts, figures, and historical information not often found among the mainstream media and politicians. The section on the true amount of America's debt burden should be a frightening wake-up call for any American concerned about the economic future of this country. But unlike a lot of doom-and-gloom books, Goyette ends on a positive note on how to protect your finances through investing in gold, silver, oil and other commodities.
