Product Description

From the Inside Flap

The economic and monetary disaster, which seasoned Wall Street prognosticator Peter Schiff warned of in the bestselling first edition of Crash Proof, is no longer hypothetical—it is here today. And while most people believe that the economic collapse is over, the reality is that it has only just begun. That's why he's returned with Crash Proof 2.0.

For more than a decade, Schiff has not only observed the U.S. economy, but also helped his clients restructure their portfolios to reflect his outlook. What he sees today is a nation facing a growing economic storm—brought on by bursting bubbles and growing federal, personal, and corporate debt—that will only continue to intensify as the U.S. government refuses to allow market forces to repair the damage.

Crash Proof 2.0 picks up right where the first edition—which clearly foresaw the bursting of the real estate bubble, credit crunch, and the insolvency of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac—left off and includes more than 80 new pages of up-to-the-minute analysis and advice. This timely guide takes into account the dramatic economic shifts that are reshaping America and provides you with valuable insights which will allow you to protect yourself, as well as prosper, during the difficult times that lie ahead. Throughout the book, Schiff explains the factors that will affect your future financial stability—from the bubble in bond prices and collapse of the dollar to surging long-term interest rates and run-away inflation—and offers a specific three-step plan to battle today's economic downturn, and tomorrow's market mayhem.

STEP #1: Rethinking Your Stock Portfolio shows you exactly how to solidify your portfolio with foreign securities that are better positioned to weather the storm and deliver meaningful long-term returns

STEP #2: Gold Rush examines the various ways to capitalize on the bull markets in gold and silver and explains how these precious metals can add both safety and growth potential to a conservative foreign stock portfolio

STEP #3: Stay Liquid discusses the different aspects of liquidity and the importance of having it during times of financial turmoil

Even with all that's happened in the last few years, the real collapse still lies ahead. With Crash Proof 2.0 as your guide, you'll discover a long-term plan that will put you in a better position to survive and thrive during the coming years of economic uncertainty.

From the Back Cover

Praise for Crash Proof and Crash Proof 2.0

"Schiff was warning us about our fragile economic foundation long before the first cracks started to appear. There are plenty of market cheerleaders out there, but if you want advice from a market realist who has been proven right again and again, read this book."
Glenn Beck, host, The Glenn Beck Program

"The dot-com implosion proves that we all need Peter Schiff's vision of investing. His view is so global and so unique in its approach, and at a time when we all should be looking to crash-proof our portfolios, Schiff offers us this much-needed life-raft."
Liz Claman, anchor, Fox Business Network

"For those accustomed to America's economic dominance, Crash Proof is a frighteningly forthright wake-up call. But Peter Schiff is one Cassandra whose voice deserves your rapt attention. Devoid of the usual Wall Street spin, this frank and prophetic read will make you reconsider the very foundations on which your financial house is built."
Jonathan Hoenig, Portfolio Manager, Capitalistpig Hedge Fund LLC and Fox News Channel analyst

"Schiff does an outstanding job of outlining the dangers to individual investors of the current economic environment and presents a plausible plan about how to deal with the risks."
David W. Tice, Chief Portfolio Manager, Prudent Bear Funds

"A sober assessment of the financial problems facing our country. Reading this book will prepare you for potential outcomes that Wall Street and the mainstream financial media are completely unaware of."
Bill Fleckenstein, founder and President of Fleckenstein Capital and MSN.com Money columnist

As usual, Peter Schiff is telling the truth and open our eyes on the reality. It is different from the propaganda in the medias. He predicted this crisis back in the beginning of the decade. He kept and argued his point of view and now we are all able to see that his predictions came true. Crash proof 2.0 is really interesting and is focusing on the reality that the US will have to face in the upcoming years and what we can do to protect our wealth. Once again, this book has a really nice value. A must read.

This is a revised version of Peter Schiff's first edition crash proof. Peter has included updated pages with new commentary on the current economic situation. Remember, the first edition came out BEFORE the crash.

Is Peter Schiff just another lucky contrarian? No way. He uses sound Austrian economic theory to assess the global climate. Just look at his recommended reading list on his brokerage firm's website [...]. This guy is the real stuff. I can't wait for Euro Pacific Canada to open up.

It is so refreshing read, listen and hear somebody so charismatic blast the so-called economic experts and nobel laureates who help cause the current crisis. The mainstream keeps listening to the same experts and nobel laureates who caused this economic mess. This book will help you understand how those experts caused the crisis and why their solution to it cannot improve things and can only worsen the bleeding.

I also highly recommend Tom Woods book Meltdown. Meltdown: A Free-Market Look at Why the Stock Market Collapsed, the Economy Tanked, and the Government Bailout Will Make Things Worse

If you have the original don't bother with this one, 90% same stuff as the original crash proof. One or the other is ok but both is a waste.

This is the best book I have read about the economy. The book is able to perfectly explain the problems with the American economy in a way that anyone can understand. If you want to know where the future of America is heading, then do yourself a favor and read this book!!
