PRAISE FOR GOLD BUBBLE: Profiting From Gold's Impending Collapse

"In Gold Bubble, Yoni Jacobs presents a vivid description of gold economics, gold history, and gold's false promise of security. He then applies the aspects of bubble psychology to the current gold market and concludes that gold's price speculation has reached a highly dangerous level of optimism, one that will soon be dashed. His analysis is comprehensive, complete, and very likely correct."
Charles D. Kirkpatrick, CMT President, Kirkpatrick & Company, Inc.; coauthor of Technical Analysis;publisher of The Market Strategist newsletter

For years, investors have considered gold safe from recessions, falling markets, and currency depreciation. But with gold prices up more than 600 percent over the last decade alone, that fantasy is destined to fade fast. Gold—like housing and technology before it—has entered a bubble, and it too will burst. In Gold Bubble: Profiting From Gold's Impending Collapse, Yoni Jacobs looks at how we got here and what you can do to protect yourself, or even profit from what lies ahead.

Incisive, intelligent, and indispensable reading for anyone who wants to protect their money from speculative bubbles of all kinds, Gold Bubble is the first book to bet against the universal currency, bringing you the information and advice you need to profit from the danger most investors won't even acknowledge.
