Overview

The devaluation of the American dollar, with the subsequent inflation, is eerily similar to the chaotic markets of the 1970s. The factors that created the stagflation and the gold and silver bull markets of the late seventies and early eighties are back. As Yogi Berra said, "It's deja vu all over again."

This book can help you panic-proof your life and your finances, and reap huge profits with relatively small investments in gold, silver, certain ETFs, mutual funds, and mining stocks.

How to Prosper During the Coming Bad Years in the 21st Century is a must-have survival and moneymaking guide for people who want to profit from the rough economic seas that are upon us-and come through with their share of treasure.
