Overview

In the wake of declining stock prices, the bursting of the real estate bubble, and a weakening dollar, the American economy is poised for a prolonged contraction and U.S. stocks will suffer a protracted bear market, so says seasoned Wall Street prognosticator Peter Schiff. Having accurately predicted the current market turmoil in his recent bestseller Crash Proof: How to Profit from the Coming Economic Collapse, the CNBC-dubbed "Doctor Doom" has helped savvy investors protect their portfolios in some very turbulent markets—and now, he'll show you how to do the same.

Written in a straightforward and accessible style, The Little Book of Bull Moves in Bear Markets reveals how you should protect your assets and invest your money when the American economy is experiencing perilous economic downturns and wealth building is happening elsewhere. Filled with insightful commentary, inventive metaphors, and pre-scriptive advice, this book shows you how to make money under adverse market conditions by using a conservative, nontraditional investment strategy.

In detailing lessons learned from the 1930s and 1970s—and from the ways people invested when other economies experienced high inflation, collapsed markets, and rising interest rates coupled with declining currencies—The Little Book of Bull Moves in Bear Markets shows you how to successfully implement various bull moves so that you can preserve, and even enhance, your wealth within a prosperous or an ailing domestic economy. Strategies include a top-down investment approach; cutting expenses where you can; buying high-yielding equities in resource-rich and rapidly growing foreign markets; and investing in commodities, natural resources, and precious metals. Plus, at the end of each chapter, Schiff provides you with witty and insightful "parting words" that provide core advice for you to use as you work toward growing your wealth in any market environment.

Smart investing will always pay off; the key lies in using the best strategies for the market at hand. For investors who see the writing on the wall, but don't know what to do about it, The Little Book of Bull Moves in Bear Markets offers timely insights into how you can protect your portfolio and even profit during these uncertain economic times.

    What to do in this crazy market?

    The author of this book, Peter D. Schiff, is the head of a brokerage firm that called this bear market and advised people to adjust their assets accordingly while there was still time to do so. He's also predicting that this market will last for a decade. I'm not certain about that, but I did appreciate the insight he provides from studying bear markets in the 30s and 70s to see how the US economy might adjust. His strategies come from what constituted successful moves in those markets. His main prediction is the next decade will mirror the 1970s, complete with high inflation and interest rates, as well as an increase in commodity prices. Even if you don't agree with all of the advice, it's a great time to read this book.<BR/><BR/>Another book I've really enjoyed recently during the topsy turvy market is The Emotional Intelligence Quick Book. Not an investment book, obviously, just a book to keep my sanity!

    Wake UP and PAY ATTENTION

    This is a good read and is a day by day increasingly probable view into the near future.<BR/><BR/>Really, read this book, consider the source and come to your own conclusions.<BR/><BR/>The book is well written, well organised and at the same time....an advertisement.<BR/><BR/>It is worth reading. It could save you a lot of money and maybe, save your life.

    Good diagnosis of the illness, but is it the right prescription?

    The economic observations about the soundness of American finances are true enough, and these are set nicely in historical context at the beginning of the book. This book provides a very interesting read.<BR/><BR/>In a nutshell: This book describes the 'problem' well enough. But does Schiff have the 'solution'? Who knows? Good diagnosis of the illness, but is it the right prescription?<BR/><BR/>I have mixed feelings about these 'little books' in general. They're nicely presented, and big sellers, but there is now one for almost every conceivable investment strategy. That's fine: there are various strategies, and each one needs documenting. But each book is written by an 'expert' who is pretty much saying "This is the strategy that really works". Well, they can't all work, can they? Maybe they can, in the sense that every strategy is likely to work at some time. Every dog has its day.<BR/><BR/>Tony Loton, author --<BR/>"Stock Fundamentals On Trial: Do Dividend Yield, P/E and PEG Really Work?"<BR/>"DON'T LOSE MONEY!: (in the Stock Markets)"

    Contrarian investment guide

    Author Peter D. Schiff explains how he positioned his clients when he saw the current bear market coming, and warns you about what he sees as the imminent collapse of the U.S. dollar and the U.S. economy. He recommends that readers get their money out of the U.S. market, invest abroad, and even consider emigrating altogether and opening a business in a BRIC country (Brazil, Russia, India and China). Schiff elaborates on the risk of living in an American city ¿with an inner-city population.¿ This short book full of breathlessly long sentences explains Schiff¿s end-of-life-as-we-know-it investment philosophy, including why he thinks that playing the commodities markets by investing in futures is safer and sounder than trusting the U.S. government and financial structure. getAbstract recommends his book to readers who want to hear every point of view about the U.S. economy, including the very worst-case scenario. And even if the worst is occurring, says Schiff, you still have some investment options.

    This book is a must read for any serious investor.

    Peter Schiff is one of the few people who predicted the 2008 stock market crash. Hence, he has the credibility and knowledge to advise how to invest going forward. Mr. Schiff has extensive expertise in the underpinnings of the U.S. and global economies. He explains how inflation will rise, the dollar will fall, the value of precious metals will go up, and what the real GDP and unemployment rates are versus what the government reports. He puts it all together in clear understandable terms. Peter also gives recommendations of what investments to purchase for best growth in the coming decade. Overall a great, informative, easy to read book!

    Comprehensive and Eye Opening

    Looking at the publish date, you might think this little book destroyed the market. However, Schiff foresaw the collapse long before it happened.

    The book is an excellent lesson and guide for how to navagate the turmoil. My only problem was the repeated marketing of his firm in the text. Regardless, it's a must read for insight into what might happen in the next 8-10 years.
