The book is divided into four parts. Part I explains what a precarious situation the Western financial world is really in, due to “papering over” crisis after crisis with increasing amounts of debt and fiat currency, yet without actually fixing anything. If you’re fairly new to this, Part I will alert you to some major risks (but in plain, rather than alarmist, language). If you’re already somewhat worried, you’ll wish you could make your friends and relatives sit down and read this section, because it lays out the dangers nicely.
Part II explains some of the consequences of all this unfettered debt and currency creation, which go beyond what’s traditionally thought of as economics. There’s the burden of inflation (largely hidden and denied), and the perils of rising interest rates, both of which are well described. But it also discusses increased corruption, an ever-expanding (because easily funded) military-surveillance state, manipulated markets and a resultant loss of trust, and a level of societal complexity which is not sustainable and will end unpredictably (but badly). That’s just a partial list. People who think they’re not interested in economics might be a lot more interested if they understood how “easy money” plays into many of the issues they care about.
Part III highlights some of the features of our slightly bizarre financial system, necessary knowledge for understanding how to protect oneself. It covers open secrets which are easily understood but which much of the public is woefully unaware of: the way fractional reserve banking actually works, the amount of power unelected central bankers wield, and why inflation is a hidden tax that people don’t realize they’re paying. Understanding the unfairness of the financial system makes you want to distance yourself from it, which leads to Part IV, the “what you can do to prepare” section.
Part IV involves, in part, bullish arguments for gold and silver, and there might be some skeptics who’ve grown impatient with precious metals. If you’re in that crowd, this part of the book is an excellent reminder of what the fundamentals really are, which it might be helpful to revisit. The impatient would also benefit from reading the introduction to the book, which gives a good explanation for why the financial breakdown that history dictates has not happened yet.
It should be a useful book for people at different levels of knowledge, from someone just learning about money & economics to someone who knows a lot, but might love to have some clearly outlined talking points to bring to friends and relatives.
I would recommend the book to anyone who is not yet familiar with this subject, or who hasn't read the previous book. It might make a good gift.
