Guide to Investing in Gold and Silver: Everything You Need to Profit from Precious Metals Now

( 39 )

Overview

"Throughout the ages, many things have been used as currency: livestock, grains, spices, shells, beads, and now paper. But only two things have ever been money: gold and silver. When paper money becomes too abundant, and thus loses its value, man always turns back to precious metals. During these times there is always an enormous wealth transfer, and it is within your power to transfer that wealth away from you or toward you." --Michael Maloney, precious metals investment expert...

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal

Maloney (founder & principal, Gold & Silver Inc.) provides an excellent discussion of the history of the currency and trends of the precious-metals markets. Yet, though he states that investing in anything can be risky, his occasional use of hyperbole makes it sound as though he is actively selling the listener on precious metals. Christian Rummel's (The Gate House) reading is professional, well paced, and accent-free. An end-of-disc indicator would have been helpful; purchase where needed.
—Laurie Selwyn

    Informative and Comprehensive

    This book was informative and easy to understand. It covered a lot of material. Maloney knows what he is talking about. I would recommend this book to anyone wishing to know more about precious metals.

    This is an easy-to-read book that has a lot of good history in i

    This is an easy-to-read book that has a lot of good history in it -- not at all what one would expect from an investment guide. It spans topics from the origins of money, the debasement of currency in Greece, Rome, and Weimar Germany, and talks about the establishment of US currency up to the formation of the Fed and thoughts on Ben Bernanke and his outlook. It's interesting to read this in 2012, given that it's written in 2008. Some of it is quite prescient.

    A large part of Maloney's historical context, while good, feels like the Cliff Notes version of Niall Ferguson's "Ascent of Money." And yet there are no reference cites. I recognize that history is history, but I would've encouraged Mr. Maloney to include his references that he used for this book.

    Another troubling aspect is one of investment principles. On the one hand, Maloney acknowledges cyclical natures in assets. At one point, in analyzing the current economic state, he lays out what he feels are likely scenarios and how they may play out. His conclusion is that gold and silver investment can only appreciate, regardless of the scenario. I would suggest this is false. There is no complete elimination of risk, and Maloney does the reader a disservice in presenting a no way to lose outlook. People can, and do lose money on any sort of investment. Even "sure things." Overall, Maloney writes clearly, and this is a reasonable primer. My advice, however, is caveat emptor -- take the ideas and do your own thinking when approaching investing. Maloney lays out a convincing thesis, but everyone should take responsibility for coming up with their own financial understanding and strategy.

    Highly recommended

    I wasn't sure this book was what I wanted and when I realized I was going to get a history of money.... I was reluctant to read. But, to my amazement, I was caught up in the history and the greater understanding I got from the read. It was well written and researched and kept my interest right to the end.

    The world we live in is sometimes scarey but the knowledge we gain helps to calm the soul and give us a frame for our fears. This book does exactly that. I am so happy to have this knowledge and I recommend it without hesitation.

    This is a great book of history of money and currencies, about the self-destructive cycle of all super power countries by overspending, overextending themselves, exhausting their resources and debase their currencies Sadly that seems like the path we are going down. Also, the books gives practical advise about investments in gold, silver.  I especially like his idea about wealth cycles: wealth can't evaporate, it just transfers from one asset class to another with the wheel of history.
