Right now, Congress, the Fed, and the Treasury are all gamblingwith your future and your money. And it's contagious. Economiesaround the globe are suffering from the biggestmultitrillion-dollar bets ever wagered on big governments andmiraculous financial interventions in pretend "free markets."
One man saw it all coming and told his readers well in advance oftoday's crisis. Bill Bonner reports on the true health andwell-being of the world's largest economy to over half a millionreaders each day in The Daily Reckoning. His newsletter isto the mainstream financial press what the Gnostic Gospels are tothe King James Bible.
Back in 2000, Bill Bonner sounded like a prophet crying in thewilderness. While everyone scrambled to purchase shares of thelatest and hottest dot-com, Bill announced his Trade of the Decade:Sell dollars, buy gold. Back in 2000, you could get an ounce foraround $264. Today, you could pay as much as $1,400 for that sameounce. Finally, some of Bonner's best pronouncements, predictions,and profitable analysis are collected in one place.
