The New York Timesbestseller-an investment book for the coming age of high inflation. On the heels of the most recent economic crisis, America is headed toward another: high inflation and dollar devaluation. The signs are clear: Federal debt is compounding while growth has stalled, and America's foreign creditors are questioning the dollar's reserve currency status. Meanwhile, the "hidden" federal debt, much larger than the official debt, makes things even worse. But the good news, according to Charles Goyette, is that those who are prepared can protect themselves-and even profit-in this new era. Drawing on historical examples and a clear, down-to-earth analysis, he explains the importance of gold, silver, and other alternative investments when inflation takes off. He also gives readers the investing tools to protect their savings and capitalize on the opportunities ahead. Savvy readers don't have to be left holding the bag after decades of government irresponsibility.
