Quatrième de couverture
"Finally an easy–to–read but very comprehensive study on investments in a world where sadly common sense is no longer so common and short–term profit ′temptations′ overwhelm the discipline of building sustainable wealth." Marc Faber, Editor, Gloom, Boom & Doom Report
"Maybe had Congress gotten this book before this financial crisis, we wouldn′t be in this crisis. But alas, we are, and alas, there′s hope. Axel Merk not only shows Washington the way out, but more importantly, the rest of us too. Not with a lecture, but a plan, and a damn good plan, without the bull and without the jargon. It′s why I love this guy. He really means it when he says he′s looking out for the rest of us guys. In Sustainable Wealth, he proves it." Neil Cavuto, Sr. Vice President and Anchor, Fox News Channeland Fox Business Network
"The right financial decisions are always essential, but become particularly important in today′s turbulent times. Preparation and knowledge are required to protect you and your family, and this book provides everything you need to develop a sound plan for the future." James Turk, founder and Chairman, GoldMoney.com
"It′s hard to accumulate wealth without making many costly mistakes along the way. That has never been more true given the enormous financial risks we see today. This book may help you avoid them." Bill Fleckenstein, Fleckenstein Capital
"Axel Merk′s Sustainable Wealth is a storehouse of historical and current investment information clearly written and packed with valuable information. I recommend this book without reservation." Richard Russell, Publisher, Dow Theory Letters

The highlights of this book were the following:
- How public policy is killing economy recovery.
- How social complacency and hubris lead to the slow downfall of the American economy
- Making the distinction between conventional wisdom and true wisdom.
- Getting a grip on one's expenses and debt and concentrate on building wealth.
This book reminds me of Kiyosaki's Rich Man, Poor Man from long ago as a financial planning book. Although it spends a considerable portion to the historical events leading up to the economic collapse and somewhat psycho-analyze why people did what they did that contributed to the economic collapse, This book ultimately focuses on modifying one's behavior to cope with the current economic conditions and build one' wealth.
The strength of this book is that it attacks conventional wisdom toward investing and stresses to be skeptical of current public policy that is targeted to fix the current economic problem. In other words, don't buy into conventional mainstream wisdom and don't rely on public policy to save you. It encourages to keep your eyes peeled to changes in the economic landscape, and consider various ways to preserve one's wealth. I am glad that this book targets conventional wisdom, complacency, and current public policy, all of which I thought were lacking in other gloom-and-doom books.
This book is quite concise, but it is a good intro to describing to the unsophisticated as to what is going on and what to do think and do next.
If you're the kind of person who bought a house two years ago, bought a brand new car, maybe took a home equity loan, ignored your chicken-little friend's warnings two years ago, slowly watched your net worth go into the red, now your chicken-little friend might have been right after all, and slowly realizing that your ship is nearly sunk, this book is probably for you. If you're having doubts that the economy is not as good as what the mainstream media is leading you to believe, this book is probably for you.
Thinking a method to accomplish this would be described in detail in "Sustainable Wealth", I rushed to buy a copy. Alas, the book was crammed with endless cliches about invest wisely according to your own needs, be flexible, invest only what you can afford to lose and so on and on plowing old ground over and over. No mention was made on how to invest in foreign currencies, only that it was a good idea to do so.
Unlike many commentators, Axel is not on any extreme. He's just an experienced money manager who questions the conventional wisdom and encourages regular people to participate in their own financial future, not just follow the "experts". I highly recommend this book.
