My greatest wish for you is that this book changes your life by changing your outlook, and in turn, brings you prosperity in the tough times ahead. Many of the predictions I made in this book have already come to pass. The stock market crash of 2008, the bursting of the real estate bubble, the tsunami of foreclosures, Mortgage-Backed Securities causing the financial crisis to be transmitted around the world instantly, and Ben Bernanke’s overreaction to the threat of deflation with massive currency creation. And I believe it’s only a matter of time before the rest of my predictions come true. For this printing, I have chosen to leave the original contents of this book pretty much untouched. I have, however, added notations marked “2015 Update” here and there. Even though this book was originally published just before the global economic crisis of 2008, it is even more pertinent today, because nothing has been fixed. In fact, all the underlying fundamentals that caused the meltdown of `08 have only been magnified by the actions of the world’s central banks. The bailouts, currency creation, market manipulation, derivatives expansion, and growth of the “too big to fail” banks only guarantee that the next crisis will be of a far greater magnitude. As I have said many times before, “This is the greatest wealth transfer in history, therefore it’s the greatest opportunity in history.” Yes, the threat has never been bigger, but that means that the opportunity has never been bigger. The forces that threaten the world monetary system are the same forces that will propel gold and silver to unimaginable heights. The good news is that by buying this book you have demonstrated the intent to turn these forces to your advantage and transform this crisis into your
opportunity. As my video producer/media director, Dan Rubock, from Australia says… “Good on you mate.” This book was originally published as part of Robert Kiyosaki’s Rich Dad’s Advisor series of books, and quickly became the best selling book on precious metals investing of this century, and perhaps all time. Translated into eleven languages and available worldwide, it is the result of six years of research and 2-1/2 years of writing. It is the culmination of two books, which were distilled, condensed, and edited down to one, losing 23 chapters and over 1000 pages in the process.
