Overview

WILL Deflation and depression really happen?

WHAT Causes deflation and depression?

CAN The Fed or the President prevent deflation?

WHERE Can you find the few exceptionally sound banks, insurers, gold dealers and other essential service providers that can help you protect your wealth?

HOW Should you arrange your finances and your life in order to survive the depression, prosper while it's happening, and take advantage of the unprecedented opportunity coming at the next major bottom?

Not one in ten thousand investors will think to ask these questions, even as their financial institutions may be lurching toward insolvency.

From 2002:
"This book outlines brilliantly and simply the rationale for how and why the bubble developed. Prechter will go down in history as a legend for having predicted the secular bull market and now having provided a lucid description of the economic cataclysm that unfortunately lies ahead. I urge you to read this book and give it to your loved ones. It provides great tactical advice on how to prepare yourself financially. Reading this book could make the difference between agony and comfort over the next 20 years."
David Tice, President, Prudent Bear Funds

From 2004:
"Prechter can take credit as the godfather of the modern deflation theory."
Kirk Washington, Benchmark magazine

From 2009:
"Rooted in decades of serious research, published in 2002, this book was a frighteningly accurate predictor of the 2008 crash. It explains the 'big picture' of how economic conditions ebb and flow over time, how to profit from them and how to avoid getting caught in the inevitable squeezes that wipe out the unwary (i.e. 99% of the world)."
Ken McCarthy, The Independence Day Blueprint

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Conquer the Crash with This Important Book: All of the analysis and insight from the original edition is included in the new second edition. But Prechter has added 188 pages of entirely new material, and every one of the book's pages is worth reading and re-reading, even if your copy of the original edition is coffee-stained and dog-eared."
—Tim Bost, Financial Cycles Newsletter

"Prechter's advice for most investors, as described in the recently released second edition of his book [Conquer the Crash], is fairly simple: Play it Safe…Patience is a Virtue…Return of Capital Is Key."
—Aaron Task, Yahoo Finance
