Praise for Right on the Money
"If I've learned one thing from Doug: real returns are made by ignoring the passing herd and looking at what they trampled over instead. His gut-punching assaults on the 'common sense' notions that fail most investors are a rare chance to learn firsthand from one of the contrarian masters."
Porter Stansberry, founder, Stansberry & Associates Investment Research
"You should read this to have your brains rattled, whether you agree or notat firstat least, you will have to consider views you never even heard."
Jim Rogers, author of Street Smarts: Adventures on the Road and in the Markets
"Doug Casey is a brilliant speculator with a great understanding of historical cycles and the keen senses of a coonhound. If you want to learn how to make money, you have to think like someone who instinctively knows how to make moneyand Doug is a prime example of that rarest of species.
"Right on the Money's perfect concoction of personal experience, sound investment advice, and irreverent viewpoints is the next best thing to sitting face to face with Doug."
Bill Bonner, founder, Agora Inc.
"I would call the extraordinary Doug Casey a 'national treasure,' if he believed in anything national. So let me just say: if you care about your own economic future, read this book."
