From both an economic and monetary perspective, the United States is a house of cards: impressive on the outside, but a disaster waiting to happen beneath the surface. In a relatively short period of time, the country has gone from the world's largest creditor to its greatest debtor, the value of the dollar has declined, and manufacturing has given way to non-exportable services. While these and other issues could spell disaster for your financial well-being, the situation could also present unique opportunities - if you're prepared.

For more than a decade, seasoned Wall Street prognosticator Peter Schiff has not only observed the U.S. economy, but has helped his clients restructure their portfolios to reflect his outlook. What he sees today is a nation facing an economic storm brought on by growing federal, personal, and corporate debt; too little savings; a declining dollar; and a lack of domestic manufacturing.

Here, Schiff provides you with an insightful examination of the structural weaknesses underlying this impending economic meltdown, and discusses how you can protect yourself during the difficult times that lie ahead. Using common-sense analysis, creative analogies, and easy-to-understand language, Schiff entertains as well as educates and outlines a specific three-step plan that will allow you to preserve wealth and protect the purchasing power of your savings.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Trisha | 2/1/2014

    " This book is scary. I'm now reading his updated version which is better to read so this one should be skipped since it is slightly dated. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kami | 1/28/2014

    " There is some interesting information on inflation, the Fed, and how messed up our current economy is. He spends the second half of the book talking about how his firm will save you. I don't think anyone will save us... "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mark Danburg-wyld | 1/22/2014

    " Gold is also a fiat currency. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Chuck Howarth | 1/19/2014

    " I read this back in 2007 or so. Schiff makes interesting arguments, but I think his inflationary views are inherently flawed. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kirby Doyle | 1/18/2014

    " An easy read that gives you a different perspetive on gobal markets in the last 5-7 years but bad advice on the euro as a safe haven. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David | 1/7/2014

    " Excellent advice from the guy who predicted the 2008 housing crash before it happened. Schiff advises a healthy portfolio of high dividend foreign stocks, commodities, and cash to protect yourself against the crash of the dollar and the Wall Street system. While I understand his avoidance of the dollar, the one point which I felt Schiff failed to adequately support was the idea that all of your equities and securities should be held in foreign currencies such as the euro and yuan. With hindsight, the euro's performance is tracking closely to the dollar now, making it just as tenuous a resting place. The yuan, however, is strong now, and the current situation validates Schiffs bullish take on Asian markets. He also suggests offshore for gold storage and mining stocks. Personally I think this is a good idea given the dollar's history and current downward spiral, but Schiff didn't prove to my satisfaction that there is no place for dollar-based equities in my portfolio. He did convince me that dividend stocks are the way to go regardless of what currency you're holding. "

    " Wealth is made through production and savings. Our nation consumes and borrows. Uh-oh. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Rick Bohm | 12/31/2013

    " This guy messes up simple economics many times throughout the book, and even though he comes to the same conclusion as everyone else has by now (and much less eloquently) I can't say it was worth reading at all. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Mike | 12/25/2013

    " I recommend reading this book to anyone. Peter Schiff's take on the economy and how to invest is very insiteful. It is also written in a way you don't need to have a lot of training in finance. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Erin | 12/18/2013

    " Great book for the beginning investor. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lydia | 12/4/2013

    " The most interesting economics book I've read. It actually made economics more enjoyable. Interesting for what we are going through right now in our economy too. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Keersten | 11/25/2013

    " So this is Mike's new favorite book, I only skimmed some of it. However, it definitely has some great ideas and we are putting many of them into action to swim through this economically scary year. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paul | 10/14/2013

    " Only Wish I had read this book 2 years ago. I would have been aware of the financial collapse on the way and how to use it to make a profit. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Jon | 9/29/2013

    " talks about one possible outcome from market collapse of 2008/2009. I don't know if I agree with his analysis, but I think his advice is sound even if you're not particularly worried about a complete currency collapse in the US. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Nancy Kennedy | 9/29/2013

    " What a depressing book! The author recommends disbanding the Fed, investing in nearly any currency other than the dollar, and tells us that the economy is so close to collapse that we ought to run for the hills. I sure hope he's wrong! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Chris | 6/12/2013

    " This was written by the financial adviser for the Ron Paul presidential campaign. He's been trying to prepare us for the events that are happening today. Although for some, this comes late it is a MUST-read to understand why the U.S. is where it is today... and what else might happen. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Travis | 1/9/2011

    " I follow several economists so it is refreshing to get a different view on the economy. Schiff shows how goverent manipulation of the economy does not help the individual investor and what you can do about it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Luaba | 11/17/2010

    " One of the very few economist, to forecast the crash of the credit bubble and how to not only withstand it but even make a profit. Peter Schiff is an eminence gris of economy trends, and one to pay attention to if one wants to be prepared for the worst. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ken | 4/20/2010

    " A good introduction to the financial crises for those who don't necessarily understand economics. A shameless advertisement for his own investing company though. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stephanie | 10/11/2009

    " Great forethinker. Ahead of his time for 2006 and forecasting what was coming. Can't wait to see what he says in the newer version called crash proof 2.0 "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Keith | 9/20/2009

    " I good book, much of which has played out to be correct. I read this when it was a 'nutter' book and the real estate boom was in full swing. Still has good info for even after the global depression starts. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karin | 5/22/2009

    " This is an absolute must read. Peter Schiff gives a clear account of how our economy got to be the way it is and where it is going. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nathan | 12/26/2008

    " Schiff called the last two bubbles long before the intelligentsia even imagined it. I ran out and bought 3500 dollars in precious metals after reading this book. "
