Publisher's Summary

The economic and monetary disaster, which seasoned Wall Street prognosticator Peter Schiff warned of in the best-selling first edition of Crash Proof, is no longer hypothetical - it is here today. And while most people believe that the economic collapse is over, the reality is that it has only just begun. That's why he's returned with Crash Proof 2.0.For more than a decade, Schiff has not only observed the U.S. economy, but also helped his clients restructure their portfolios to reflect his outlook. What he sees today is a nation facing a growing economic storm - brought on by bursting bubbles and growing federal, personal, and corporate debt - that will only continue to intensify as the U.S. government refuses to allow market forces to repair the damage. Crash Proof 2.0 picks up right where the first edition - which clearly foresaw the bursting of the real-estate bubble, credit crunch, and the insolvency of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac - left off and includes much more up-to-the-minute analysis and advice. This timely guide takes into account the dramatic economic shifts that are reshaping America and provides you with valuable insights that will allow you to protect yourself, as well as prosper, during the difficult times that lie ahead.Throughout, Schiff explains the factors that will affect your future financial stability - from the bubble in bond prices and collapse of the dollar to surging long-term interest rates and run-away inflation - and offers a specific three-step plan to battle today's economic downturn and tomorrow's market mayhem.


What the Critics Say

"Schiff was warning us about our fragile economic foundation long before the first cracks started to appear. There are plenty of market cheerleaders out there, but if you want advice from a market realist who has been proven right again and again, listen to this audiobook." (Glenn Beck)

Eye opening look into the future of the US economy

I have been a follower of Peter Schiff since I ran across some of his blogs on YouTube about six months ago. After listening to this book I have a much better feel for what is coming and what I can do to protect myself and my money if and when the forecasts in this book occur.

My only gripe about the book is that the first 3/4ths of the book mostly cover stuff that has already happened and the last 1/4th is where we learn what can be done to prepare for the future events still coming. The beginning can still be informative for those who are unaware of why the economy collapsed and has temporarily rebounded like it did but the end is where the real substance is.

This is an Eye-Opening Book

The crazy thing about this book is the economic concepts seem so simple and logical yet Wall Street, Politicians and Americans never saw any of this coming (including myself).

The first half of the book does a great job of discussing "Classical Economics" and explains how the US has gotten into the economic situation we are in and what the effect will be going forward. The second part of the book is focused on investing accordingly.

Whether you are an investor or just a student of current economic policy and government I think you will find the book very powerful.

This book is the original book written in 2006 with a lengthy 2009 update at the end of each chapter. DON'T buy Crash Proof 1.0 as you will miss out on all the 2009 updates which are critical.
