Praise for The Golden Rule

John Mauldin, Millennium Wave Investments, author, Bull's Eye Investing
"The Golden Rule contains serious analysis and arguments why every saver should hold some of his cash and assets in physical gold and gold-related investments. A fine read!"
Marc Faber, Editor, The Gloom, Boom & Doom Report
If you don't trust Greenspan or Bernanke, Bush or Obama, Congress or any other part of the regime, to plan your economic future, own some gold. It's a personal declaration of independence."
Llewellyn Rockwell, Chairman, Ludwig von Mises Institute
"If there's one thing American investors need to know more about, it is gold. They can either learn about it nowahead of the curveor later from the school of hard-knocks. Jim Gibbons thinks now is better and has done a great job gathering some of the industry's most knowledgeable experts together in one highly informative, full-spectrum package."
