Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Praise for Right on the Money

"If I've learned one thing from Doug: real returns are made by ignoring the passing herd and looking at what they trampled over instead. His gut-punching assaults on the 'common sense' notions that fail most investors are a rare chance to learn firsthand from one of the contrarian masters."
—Porter Stansberry, founder, Stansberry & Associates Investment Research

"You should read this to have your brains rattled, whether you agree or not—at first—at least, you will have to consider views you never even heard."
—Jim Rogers, author of Street Smarts: Adventures on the Road and in the Markets

"Doug Casey is a brilliant speculator with a great understanding of historical cycles and the keen senses of a coonhound. If you want to learn how to make money, you have to think like someone who instinctively knows how to make money—and Doug is a prime example of that rarest of species.

"Right on the Money's perfect concoction of personal experience, sound investment advice, and irreverent viewpoints is the next best thing to sitting face to face with Doug."
—Bill Bonner, founder, Agora Inc.

"I would call the extraordinary Doug Casey a 'national treasure,' if he believed in anything national. So let me just say: if you care about your own economic future, read this book."
—Lew Rockwell, LewRockwell.com

Unlike "Crisis Investing" a previous Doug Casey book I have read... which was a well written, interesting, and informative, "Right on the Money" seems to be a very lazy cut-and-paste and disjointed compilation of Doug's investment e-mails over the past several years. Although I still find his views interesting and thought provoking, not alot of new material here.

If you have never followed Doug Casey before, it is not a bad way to catch up on his view-points. My expectation was a book more like "Crisis Investing".... for looking forward into the situations we can expect to see in the next 10 years. I hope Doug does "write" another book looking forward to the rest of the 2010's and into the 2020's, but I was disappointed with "Right on the Money".

This is the first book I've read by Doug Casey. It's a great book, I finished it in 2 days, could not put it down. He has great insight into the way the world is headed, I'm looking forward to reading his other books. Yes, the book does include issues that date back to 2009, but personally I was interested to hear his thoughts on the various issues.

If you are interested in these types of subjects, I would strongly recommend The Real Crash by Peter Schiff (more focused on economics).
I'd also recommend listening to the Peter Schiff Show, and the Tom Woods Show (more libertarian focussed), both can be listened to online for free.

This guy and his marketing company casey “research” are a total clown factory. He is a hack, bozo, snake oil salesman, and faux hero. The marketing and philosophy is geared towards people who are cognizant of the systemic fraud, failure, and criminality of the nation state that broods over them like a gargoyle over its tax slaves.

Just because he rallies toward your anti-sentiments of centralized banking, government, education, and monopolies of force and coercion in general Does Not mean he has your best interest at heart. Far from it, he uses your feelings and awareness to appeal to you and to sell books and newsletters to a selected niche audience. Hence he is a faux hero and a conman.

He is not right on the money and never has been. He is a clown who openly admits that his biggest wins were the result of luck, fraud, and guess what more fraud. He bought a penny stock that out of sheer happenstance found a large mineral deposit of nickel totally unrelated to their core competencies on their property right before they went bankrupt. 2nd he owned a company that was fraudulently cooking it’s books on the resources and deposits on it’s property it didn’t have a fraction of what hey claimed. 3rd he owned stock in a company that his broker friend was pumping and dumping. Wow what an investor! If you lay down with dogs you will get fleas.

Furthermore his track record is atrocious. He had his subscribers buying penny stocks trading in the GDXJ when it was $180 and going all in, “back up the truck”, when it was trading at $130. Same for GDX at $60 and Physical Gold at 1,900 which you have to pay an extra 5-25% premium on and may have to pay storage fees and exorbitant commission to buy and hold physical.

So now GDXJ is at 36, GDX 23, and gold 1250!

More a way to make more money for DC. Complete rehash of previously released discussions with Lobo. Not that I didn't enjoy them the first time, but I was hoping for something new.

If you've followed Dough Casey you already know his wisdom and will enjoy the read and insightfulness. If you are new to dough Casey then dive in. Its a great place to start. And after you read his book, check out what happens when his predictions come true by reading Truth's Blood. Yes, its a fictional story but its also a national conversation.

Doug Casey is the Dr Phil of investing - he tells it like it is, like it or lump it. He is highly intelligent, controversial, chillingly objective, extremely articulate (were these interviews edited? He doesn't so much as say uhm?) and unflinching in his critique of big government. He is also indubitably a perma-bear and a gold-bug. Although I must confess that I have only been reading his writings for the past few years, so maybe he was an optimist once upon a time. Anyhow, there's no doubt that he must be a very brave man as his views will attract much criticism and flak, so he must have quite a thick skin by now. Very informative and entertaining read, even if you don't agree with everything he says.

Doug Casey and Lewis James conversations could teach you the knowledge on economics, social, speculation, etc.
Most important, you will see the true face of the government through reading the book.

This book is a bunch of old quoted and interviews compiled together - seriously? Just a money ploy by them.!

He's an impressive thinker and anarchist, but his investing strategies aren't impressive (Louis James of the International Specualtor has put BUYs on way overpriced securities that all went bankrupt (Banks Island Gold, Midway Gold, Rubicon Minerals or its known now as RubiCONNED, and a couple others that were dogs).

Listen to him talk about how to value junior gold companies, it's very elementary with nothing really insightful, then listen to someone like Rick Rule or Marin Katusa and you start to see how Doug Casey got rich (having friends like Rick Rule tell him about good stocks).

Don't get me wrong, you win some and you lose some - but charging $1k annual subscription for someone to rush buys on stocks that are north of a dollar already isn't "cheap"
