Order your copy today! | Barnes & Noble | Apple

Peter Schiff’s latest book: The Real Crash: America’s Coming Bankruptcy – How to Save Yourself and Your Country* is now available. The book takes aim at the full spectrum of ridiculous government policies that have led us to the doorstep of ruin. Our failures in economic growth, education, health care, retirement planning, taxes, and of course monetary policy, are all examined in detail and are shown to have been the product of counter-productive government policies.

By ordering now you can help the book get noticed by the mainstream media which will inject these ideas into the presidential election.


* The following additional disclosures did not make it into the book before going to press:

-On Page xii, the last paragraph should have been italicized in order to highlight the prospectus language.

-On Page 286, the fourth paragraph should have included the following:

You should carefully consider the Fund's investment objectives, risks, charges, and expenses before investing. For a prospectus or summary prospectus, each of which contains this and other information about the Fund, please visit or call (888) 558-5851.

-On Page 291, the second paragraph from the bottom should have included:

Foreign investments present additional risk due to currency fluctuations, which means the value of securities can change significantly when foreign currencies strengthen or weaken due to economic and political factors, government regulations, differences in accounting standards and other factors. Investments in emerging markets involve even greater risks.  Precious metals and natural resources securities are at times volatile, and there may be sharp fluctuations in price, even during periods of rising prices.

-On Page 287, the last sentence of the third paragraph should have read:

...I'm always looking for foreign currencies to hold - not for the sake of speculation, but for a liquid store of value. 



How an Economy Grows and Why It Crashes

How an Economy Grows and Why it Crashes uses illustration, humor, and accessible storytelling to explain complex topics of economic growth and monetary systems. In it, economic expert and bestselling author of Crash Proof, Peter Schiff teams up with his brother Andrew to apply their signature "take no prisoners" logic to expose the glaring fallacies that have become so ingrained in our country's economic conversation.

Inspired by How an Economy Grows and Why It Doesn't—a previously published book by the Schiffs' father Irwin, a widely published economist and activist—How an Economy Grows and Why It Crashes incorporates the spirit of the original while tackling the latest economic issues.With wit and humor, the Schiffs explain the roots of economic growth, the uses of capital, the destructive nature of consumer credit, the source of inflation, the importance of trade, savings, and risk, and many other topical principles of economics.

The tales told here may appear simple of the surface, but they will leave you with a powerful understanding of How an Economy Grows and Why it Crashes.

Crash Proof: How to Profit From the Coming Economic Collapse
A provocative and insightful examination of our difficult economic future and what investors can do to protect their wealth.

The economic tipping point for the United States is no longer theoretical. It is a reality today. The country has gone from the world’s largest creditor to its greatest debtor; the value of the dollar is sinking; domestic manufacturing is winding down–and these trends don’t seem to be slowing. Peter Schiff casts a sharp, clear-sighted eye on these factors and explains what the possible effects may be and how investors can protect themselves. For more than a decade, Schiff has not only observed the U.S. economy, but also helped his clients reposition their portfolios to reflect his outlook. What he sees is a nation facing an economic storm brought on by growing federal, personal, and corporate debt, too-little savings, a declining dollar, and lack of domestic manufacturing. Crash Proof is an informed and informative warning of a looming period marked by sizeable tax hikes, loss of retirement benefits, double digit inflation, even–as happened recently in Argentina–the possible collapse of the middle class. However, Schiff does have a survival plan that can provide the protection that readers will need in the coming years.

Investing in foreign securities involves risks, such as currency fluctuation, political risk, economic changes, and market risks. Precious metals and commodities in general are volatile, speculative, and high-risk investments. As with all investments, an investor should carefully consider his investment objectives and risk tolerance as well as any fees and/or expenses associated with such an investment before investing. International investing may not be suitable for all investors.

Dividend yields change as stock prices change, and companies may change or cancel dividend payments in the future. The fluctuation of foreign currency exchange rates will impact your investment returns. Past performance does not guarantee future returns, investments may increase or decrease in value and you may lose money.

Our investment strategies are based partially on Peter Schiff's personal economic forecasts which may not occur. His views are outside of the mainstream of current economic thought. Investors should carefully consider these facts before implementing our strategy.
