Overview

A fully updated follow-up to Peter Schiff's bestselling financial survival guide-Crash Proof, which described the economy as a house of cards on the verge of collapse, with over 80 pages of new material

The economic and monetary disaster which seasoned prognosticator Peter Schiff predicted is no longer hypothetical-it is here today. And nobody understands what to do in this situation better than the man who saw it coming. For more than a decade, Schiff has not only observed the economy, but also 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; and a declining dollar. Crash Proof 2.0 picks up right where the first edition-a bestselling book that predicted the current market mayhem-left off. This timely guide takes into account the dramatic economic shifts that are reshaping the world and provides you with the insights and information to navigate the dangerous terrain. Throughout the book, Schiff explains the factors that will affect your future financial stability and offers a specific three step plan to battle the current economic downturn.

  • Discusses the measures you can take to protect yourself-as well as profit-during these difficult times
  • Offers an insightful examination of the structural weaknesses underlying the economic meltdown
  • Outlines a plan that will allow you to preserve wealth and protect the purchasing power of your savings
  • Filled with in-depth insights and expert advice, Crash Proof 2.0 will help you survive and thrive during the coming years of economic uncertainty.

Editorial Reviews

To think that all books on guiding people through the economic crisis are essentially same because they share a central purpose is silly, a bit like thinking that all diet books are identical. Different approaches make a difference. In the case of Crash Proof 2.0, Peter Shiff's thorough update to his 2007 economic storm tutorial, the difference is foresight. Years before others were sounding alarms, financial analyst Shiff was advising clients to brace themselves for a major upheaval. Having apprised readers of its causes, he now applies that wisdom to optimal responses to the continuing effects of the meltdown. Straight talk for hard times.

Good book, peter is 100% right about u.s. economy crashing. it's obvious the economy is in big trouble. I gave this book 3 stars because it's correct about u.s. economic troubles, and also has good info on how to prepare. however, i disagree on his BRICS predictions. right now brazil's economy is starting to stumble (besides violent riots across the country), china's economy has a bubble and other countries are having problems. I still think this book is good, just think peter puts too much confidence in the BRICS
