    Profiteering Author

    Keep in mind when you read this book that the author was ordered to pay substantial monetary penalties to the U.S. Treasury in June 2006 for misrepresenting himself as an investment adviser when he was not registered with the Securities and Exchange Commission. It was noted in the lawsuit (UNITED STATES OF AMERICA Before the SECURITIES AND EXCHANGE COMMISSION INVESTMENT ADVISERS ACT OF 1940 Release No. 2525 / June 22, 2006 ADMINISTRATIVE PROCEEDING File No. 3-12341) that "he used selective, outdated, and/or hypothetical examples of specific returns that subscribers might have realized on individual trades had they followed Weiss Research's recommendations, without advising that the overall return was or might not be profitable ... The overall performance of Weiss Research's premium services did not support these profit claims. In fact, during the relevant time period, many subscribers who followed each Weiss Research trading recommendation - as Weiss Research encouraged its subscribers to do - experienced overall returns that were substantially lower than Weiss Research's profit examples and most actually lost money."

    Extremely bearish outlook

    By combining fiction with non-fiction, Dr. Weiss' had made his extremely bearish outlook a page turner. Advice on protecting yourself from loss during such a crisis is coupled with stratgies allowing you to prosper. By now, it is common knowledge that many in the financial community gave bad advice to public investors with the sole purpose of lining their own pockets. Weiss' description of those abuses is worth the retelling, as it offers an additional warning to all of us. Whether you agree with his outlook or not, there is much to be gained from reading this book. His suggestions on keeping your assets in the safest banks, money market funds and brokers is sound advice for everyone. Weiss provides lists of those safer institutions.

    Closest thing you'll find to Econ Bubble 101 or Bear Markets for Dummies!

    Good plain and simple language. If you've been blindsided by the stock market declines since 2000; if you've ever felt the least bit intimidated by economists, by Wall Street professionals, by the experts on financial TV and assumed they know more than you do; if you're torn about selling your remaining stocks; if you think that corporate and municipal bonds offer good deals; if you are considering buying a house; if you've looked around and wondered why it doesn't feel like we are "bouncing back", READ THIS BOOK! The education you'll get just reading the sections on the government bond market make it worth it.
