This book examines in a a clear precise manner:

-Why it is now virtually certain the the United States will enter a depression--far greater in scope and dimension than that of the 1930's-- probably by 1983 at the latest.
-Why the true price of gold should be at least $3,300 an ounce.

Pretty funny to read this book written in 1979. This author is currently the gloom and doom guy (with his current version of this book) that everyone is referring to. Others claim he can see that America is headed to go bankrupt and he has ways to help us keep our wealth without the government sabotaging us all. As I said, very amusing.

I read this book to see how "accurate" Casey was with regards to the Crisis of 2008..he was about 25% right....some of the predictions were spot on...like the bailouts....most of the book hinges on a linear growth of inflation..by Casey's "projections"..we should be at about 50% inflation!!! This is a decent book to read in hindsight..nothing groundbreaking..I like the way he recommends CUSTOM KNIVES as an investment!! Casey was a visionary in that sense...
