Step by step, Martin Weiss - America's consumer advocate for financial safety - introduces, explains, and helps solve many of the new challenges and risks that face millions of Americans. Throughout the book, Weiss provides readers with sound strategies for coping with the credit crunch, housing bust, and decline of the U.S. dollar.
The Ultimate Depression Survival Guide also examines important topics that today's investor must be familiar with - including global investing, foreign currencies, and commodities - if they intend to make it through the decade ahead.
The audio version of the book is difficult to follow as much of the information is based on charts and graphs. The numbers run a blur. As a result I also purchased the printed version to more closely follow the information.
Overall the information was useful in planning for the next depression. We all need to be aware of our options to protect ourselves in the event of a severe adjustment to our financial markets.
Being aware and informed of our options for these potential negative events permits us to have a course to follow; which many individuals fail to have during a positive financial outlook.
Mr. Weiss backs his theories and comments with information that the average individual would have a difficult time obtaining. This does not by any means infer that we direct our current actions as if the next depression is looming around the corner. Charts and theories have a difficult time anticipating the actual reaction to an event that can alter or change it's course completely.
