Overview

It all has to do with the simple little word money. Everything flows from the way the money system is handled. It is the cause of inflation, of depressions, of any sudden changes in the economy.

Not one person in a thousand really understands what money is. And yet, there are few subjects in the world more fascinating than the study of money. A proper grasp of it will give you the key that unlocks the many puzzles of national economic events. Without that understanding, it’s impossible to think for oneself; instead, you’re forced to rely upon the superficial conclusions of people with conflicting opinions and credentials.

This short book covers 99% of all you need to know about money and its effect upon the economy. It's the clearest and most extensive explanation of how the government money system works and perverts the free market. Equally important, it’s written in language that any reasonably intelligent layman can understand.

Harry Browne was unknown in the investment world when his first book, How You Can Profit from the Coming Devaluation, was published in 1970. Recognizing the disastrous monetary policy of the U.S. government, he warned that the dollar would be devalued, inflation could be severe, and gold, silver, and foreign currencies should skyrocket in value. The book's theme clashed with the prevailing wisdom, but it struck a chord with tens of thousands of Americans, and the book made the New York Times bestseller list.

This eBook, taken from the first nine chapters of Harry's best-selling book, and edited by him in 2005, includes a brief afterword with a source that can help you set up a Permanent Portfolio. So it doesn't matter whether next year brings prosperity, inflation, recession, or even a depression; you'll know you're safe - no matter what.

Meet the Author

Harry Browne was an American free-market Libertarian writer and the Libertarian Party's 1996 and 2000 candidate for President of the United States. He was also a well-known investment advisor for over thirty years, author of "Harry Browne's Special Report" – a financial newsletter published from 1974 - 1997, author of 18 books and thousands of articles, co-founder of the libertarian Downsize DC Foundation, host of two weekly network radio shows -- one a political and the other a financial show, host of an ETV (internet-based television) show called "This Week in Liberty with Harry Browne" on the Internet based Free Market News Network, a consultant to the Permanent Portfolio Family of Funds, and a popular public speaker.

He was a little known investment advisor when his first book, How You Can Profit from the Coming Devaluation, was published in 1970. Recognizing the disastrous monetary policy of the U.S. government, he warned that the dollar would be devalued, inflation could be severe, and gold, silver, and foreign currencies should skyrocket in value. The book's theme clashed with the prevailing wisdom, but it struck a chord with tens of thousands of Americans, and the book made the New York Times bestseller list.

In 1973 he published How I Found Freedom in an Unfree World, a self-help book that shows individuals how to take responsibility for their own lives. Many people consider the book to be a modern classic, and it remains in demand three decades after its first publication.

His 1974 book, You Can Profit from a Monetary Crisis, was an even greater success -- remaining on the Times bestseller list for 39 weeks and reaching #1. Its message amplified themes from his first book, and it allowed thousands of investors to hold their own and to profit during the turmoil of the late 1970s. He wrote six more big-selling investment books -- including one more Times bestseller. In 1999 he published his final investment book, Fail-Safe Investing.

His 1995 book, Why Government Doesn't Work, provided a provocative mix of ideas that spoke to hundreds of thousands of Americans who felt frustrated by big government. The GreatLibertarian Offer, was published in June, 2000. His 2004 book was Liberty A to Z: 872 Libertarian Soundbites You Can Use Right Now!
