Overview

According to Peter Schiff, the coming decade will look very much like the 1970s - a decade few investors of today remember in any detail. As before, it will be a difficult investment environment. A time of rising inflation, higher interest rates, and soaring commodity prices coupled with a weakening dollar, falling real estate, stock and bond prices-and recession. As a result, many of the investment strategies that worked so well in the 1980s and 1990s will be doomed to failure in the coming decade. No longer can investors count on falling interest rates, decelerating inflation, and rising asset prices - the hallmark of the boom years. As these trends reverse, Schiff will show investors how to change with the times and adapt their investment strategies to new circumstances.

In The Little Book of Bull Moves in Bear Markets, Schiff will analyze the bull markets of the 1920's ,1960s, and 1990s and the bear markets that followed in the 1930s, 1970s, and the one currently under way. Analyzing the various similarities and differences among these time periods from market, economic, and political perspectives, he will discuss the investment themes that worked in prior bear markets. He will also provide detailed advice on which techniques and strategies will help investors maintain and build their wealth in the difficult times that lie ahead.

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.

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!

This is a good read and is a day by day increasingly probable view into the near future.

Really, read this book, consider the source and come to your own conclusions.

The book is well written, well organised and at the same time....an advertisement.

It is worth reading. It could save you a lot of money and maybe, save your life.

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.

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?

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.

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.

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!

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.
