Posted Apr 6, 2009
With millions of Americans losing their homes, their jobs and their savings … with the worst economic decline since the Great Depression spreading globally … and with serious doubts about the government's Herculean efforts to end it, traditional money advice could trap millions of innocent victims into deepening losses.
In his latest book, The Ultimate Depression Survival Guide: Protect Your Savings, Boost Your Income and Grow Wealthy Even in the Worst of Times, New York Times best-selling author and investor advocate Martin D. Weiss, Ph.D. identifies truly safe havens and shows readers how to transform today's broad financial crisis into an equally broad wealth-building opportunity.
"This is the first phase of America's Second Great Depression—a financial Katrina that could strike every city in every state," warns Dr. Weiss. "It will be extremely tough, and, at times, even traumatic. But it's not the end of the world. As long as we prepare, make the needed sacrifices, and act prudently, we will not only survive, but we can also use it as an opportunity to build personal wealth and, ultimately, a stronger economy.
The Ultimate Depression Survival Guide is a reader's roadmap to success in today's bad times by one of the nation's authors most qualified to provide it. Martin D. Weiss, whose previous books were Wall Street Journal and New York Times bestsellers, not only warned of the current crisis well before it began, but also named names: He specifically predicted the financial difficulties at Washington Mutual, Wachovia Bank, Fannie Mae, Lehman Brothers, General Motors, Citigroup, plus nearly every major troubled firm, and did so months in advance.
His book provides clear answers to virtually every urgent question being widely asked today, including:
- How can you find a truly safe bank or insurer?
- How much further could home prices fall?
- How far down could the stock market go?
- How can you protect yourself right now?
- How will you know when it's all over?
- How you can you profit from recovery?
Weiss also provides step-by-step instructions on:
- How to build a substantial cash nest egg and keep it absolutely safe.
- How to protect your home and your stock portfolio from further losses.
- What to do with your 401k, IRA or savings for your child's education.
- How to transform market declines into profit opportunities.
- What telltale signs will tip you off to a bottom in home prices, stocks and bonds.
- When to lock in safe, high yields on your money for years to come.
- Where to find the most promising profit opportunities in a recovery.
