Fight Against One of the Biggest Threats Facing American Investors: The Shrinking Dollar

Sunday, May 4, 2014 8:08 am EDT
"The dollar isn’t what it used to be. It’s not just your Great Depression-era relatives saying it. If we go back just to the 1970s, the dollar was worth a lot more. What happened?"

Every paper currency in the history of civilization has eventually lost its entire value. It’s a simple matter of supply and demand. Similarly, the United States dollar is losing value at an alarming rate.

With the U.S. dollar no longer the secure and stable currency that most Americans grew up believing in, its decline is one of the biggest threats facing American investors today. To help investors against this threat, leading economic forecaster and New York Times bestselling author Addison Wiggin’s new book The Little Book of the Shrinking Dollar: What You Can do to Protect Your Money Now (Wiley; Hardcover and eBook ; May 2012; $22.95; 978-1-118-24525-5) gives investors the knowledge and the expertise they need to fight back. In it, Wiggin explores the reasons for the dollar's decline and its precarious relationship to other currencies around the world.

“The dollar isn’t what it used to be. It’s not just your Great Depression-era relatives saying it. If we go back just to the 1970s, the dollar was worth a lot more. What happened?” asks Wiggin. “That’s what this Little Book will tell you, with plenty of ways you can save the value of what you earn, and even profit, from the upheaval that dollar decline promises ahead.”

The Little Book of the Shrinking Dollar reveals how the Federal Reserve is failing America and the top 10 reasons why the dollar is losing value, while offering plenty of solutions for how investors can protect their wealth and prosper during the crisis that lies ahead, including:

How the central bank has put a stealth tax on savings; and how to get that money back

Seven simple steps to take control of your own economic destiny

Eight signs to track the endgame of the dollar-denominated era

Why the gold market says the U.S. dollar’s days are numbered; and the best ways to play it

Phase III Retirement Investing: How to get back on track if you were hit by the dot.com and housing bubbles

Currency Winners: which countries are safe places for your cash?

Time-tested advisors and investors like Rick Rule and Eric Sprott open their own personal playbooks

“Lifeboat” investments to survive the next crisis

In 2009, the Fed Chairman put the dollar on a downward trend. He promised “exceptionally low” rates would continue as the bank went on a bond-buying, money printing bonanza. The dollar remains weak and Wiggin shares a concise guide to what's driving its demise and everything investors need to protect their money today and in the years to come, including safe havens for money, alternative investments and other opportunities.

Filled with invaluable strategies for retirees, savers, and investors who want to keep their money safe no matter what lies ahead, the book is a one-stop guide to weathering the storm.
