Wall Street Journal best seller
Valuable insights on monetary policies, their impact on your financial future, and how to protect against them. Written by the New York Times best-selling author team of John Mauldin and Jonathan Tepper, Code Red spills the beans on the central banks in the U.S., U.K., E.U., and Japan and how they've rigged the game against the average saver and investor.
More importantly, it shows you how to protect your hard-earned cash from the bankers' disastrous monetary policies and how to come out a winner in the irresponsible game of chicken they're playing with the global financial system. From quantitative easing to zero-interest-rate policies, ZIRP to the impending currency wars, runaway inflation to GDP targeting, authors Mauldin and Tepper achieve the impossible by not only explaining global monetary policy and its consequences in plain English, but also making it compelling listening.
How did we get here and where are we headed? What can you do to insulate yourself against, and profit from, economic upheaval and secure your financial future? Find out in Code Red.

Possibly. This book made heavy use of figures, tables, and graphs, and is not a great candidate for audio. I ended up buying it in print and following along.
I think there is a need for books to explain the current economic situation and how to respond to it, because it is so strange right now. Other books discussing this subject are:
The Death of Money, by James Rickards
The Dao of Capital, by Mark Spitznagel
Money, by Steve Forbes
Weak. He sounds like someone who doesn't understand the material as he reads it.
This is not a story, but rather a nonfictional treatise. It is not a candidate for screenplay.
I admire Mauldin for going out on a limb and making predictions about how global events might play out. Some of his predictions have already come to pass.
In the last year I started to read books about money...all in all about 9 and I can say that most of them starting to repeat themself . NOT here, the Author truly found some new aspects and the best part is you don't have to be an economist to understand the connections. Highly recommend read.
Learned pretty much about the role of central bank and their potential influence to my personal life. It is good book for me to review my retirement financial plan. Guess I will get back to some part of this book for review. Worth to invest time to listen for sure.
Specially I agree that selection of currency and country choice is important. Worries about Japan for currency devaluation is drawing my attention.
Oh no -- not recommend it to anyone.
If the book is to advise the consumer how to safely invest, why wait several chapters just say "diversify" -- ??
I finished it hoping to find a gold nugget -- so disappointment fits
Did Jack borrowed from the "Currency Wars"? by Friedman
I have been reading John Mauldin's letters since at least 2006 and I have thought him to be a pleasant fellow offering a service to people who can't afford to pay to subscribe to expensive newsletters. He also shares information about his life with his large family and I feel that I know him a bit. Seem a very nice guy who does not come out of the academic world.
This book was a really pleasant surprise. It was really well written in very ordinary English and also very well read. I might recommend starting with the last couple of chapters.
I am familiar with the issues so perhaps others might find that the reading was a bit too fast. But John Mauldin understands thermodynamics and has read his history. This book sets out our political/economic problems in terrifying simplicity. Wow - really good!
A very interesting read on macro-economics nowadays (written in 2012 or so).
The comparison between 1929 and 1987 busts and 2008.
I will surely read more from this author.
Semi retired small business person/ college professor/ investor.
Probably as good; depends on the "reader". One should look at the charts in the PDF as one listens and perhaps review afterward but I did not feel that not having the charts always there was too much of an issue.
End Game is close and Code Red is basically a squeal.
The time to actually read it. Time is precious and the ability to listen while traveling makes good use of time.
When you know what is really going on perhaps we should all cry.
I felt the authors did as good a job as possible in keeping this book "apolitical'. These issues are so often part of the blame game that it is hard to find an honest discussion. Truth is there is more than enough blame to go around. Monetary policy is something 90% of Americans do not understand. This book is written so at least 50% could understand it were they to take the time to read it. For the sake of your wealth, and your children's future you owe it to yourself to read this book. You will learn that the decisions are not easy but they are very important.
Author commonly predict what will happen in the future. Listing to this book years after it was written, we are able to see that this book has some remarkable accuracy with many of its predictions. I bought this book to see if it might assist me with my own future investment decisions. I cab definitely answer yes.
