Willem Middelkoop is an intelligent and energetic guy who went from rags to riches in life. I’ve heard him talk about living with his foster parents in Drenthe, then moving on to work for himself from an early age. He’s a real social climber who managed to do everything he took on in life quite well; photographer, real estate speculator, stock exchange/economical expert on Dutch tv, entrepreneur of a big webshop for precious metals, and now international writer. Remarkable and admirable. For thi ...more

"من حسن حظنا أن الناس لم يفهموا بعد كيف يعمل نظامنا المصرفى لأنهم لو فهموا لأندلعت ثورة قبل صباح الغد". هنرى فورد

هذا الكتاب يكشف لك حقيقة تلك الأوراق الملونة عديمة النفع - الأوراق المالية - وكيف يتم التلاعب بها وبالإحصائيات ليبقى العالم يتعامل بها ولكن لا مفر من العودة لأستخدام العملات المعدنية ذات القيمة الحقيقية من الذهب والفضة وغيرهم من المعادن.

A short and easy read. Avoids a detailed predication, which I think is wise. At the same time it's clear that the global financial system as we know it is heading for an inevitable reset ...more

The 100th book added to my read-shelves. Quite the hallmark of a new era for me here on goodreads. This book is brilliantly written and put together. One of the first books I have read about the present economic system that’s in place over an ever more globalizing world order.
The title of every chapter in this book is put forth as a question. At the end of each chapter I had a feeling of the question being answered with the use of financial wit and the needed sources to substantiate the answers

A very interesting book on what the author quite rationally argues as the necessary and prepared for reset in the world financial system and worldwide geopolitical balance of power. The most impressive to me part of the book was how sections/pages begin with very simple clearly formulated questions which he then proceeds to answer. The questions are very relevant and the answers show quite an impressive knowledge and research.

Despite sometimes covering some of the basics of the subject the book

The book provide good information regarding the current financial system and its risks. The author warns about risk of printing fiat money with limits and give historical cases in which similar plans to QE conducted countries to hyperinflation then collapse of their financial system.
The author recommends a return to gold system with cooperation of big powers (US, EU & China) with IMF to produce international currency (SDR for example) to avoid a collapse similar to 2008. He suggest individual to

This book is about the suspected global reset of the entire monetary system worldwide. This guy is an Englishman, so he doesn't come with the American bias. He calmly and surely lays out the strategy of governments to ultimately reset our entire global monetary system, all the while printing money, and keeping gold and silver prices suppressed. An excellent read, with short chapters which makes it even easier to read. ...more

Willem points out large movements of gold from the West to the East.  He sees China, and other countries, preparing for a reset of the global financial system.  From his perspective, gold will revalue significantly higher; history shows currency debasement is not new.

An excellent piece of work on history of money. The book's main message is - as the name suggests - that the international money system will be re-shaped or reseted within five years or so. ...more
