Peter D. Schiff

Wiley,  October 2008

In the wake of declining stock prices, the bursting of the real estate bubble, and a weakening dollar, the American economy is poised for a prolonged contraction and U.S. stocks will suffer a protracted bear market, so says seasoned Wall Street prognosticator Peter Schiff.  Having accurately predicted the current market turmoil in his recent bestseller Crash Proof: How to Profit from the Coming Economic Collapse, the CNBC--dubbed "Doctor Doom" has helped savvy investors protect their portfolios in some very turbulent markets -- and now, he'll show you how to do the same.

Written in a straightforward and accessible style, The Little Book of Bull Moves in Bear Markets reveals how you should protect your assets and invest your money when the American economy is experiencing perilous economic downturns and wealth building is happening elsewhere. Filled with insightful commentary, inventive metaphors, and prescriptive advice, this book shows you how to make money under adverse market conditions by using a conservative, nontraditional investment strategy.

In detailing lessons learned from the 1930s and 1970s--and from the ways people invested when other economies experienced high inflation, collapsed markets, and rising interest rates coupled with declining currencies -- The Little Book of Bull Moves in Bear Markets shows you how to successfully implement various bull moves so that you can preserve, and even enhance, your wealth within a prosperous or an ailing domestic economy. Strategies include a top-down investment approach; cutting expenses where you can; buying high-yielding equities in resource-rich and rapidly growing foreign markets; and investing in commodities, natural resources, and precious metals. Plus, at the end of each chapter, Schiff provides you with witty and insightful "parting words" that provide core advice for you to use as you work toward growing your wealth in any market environment.

Smart investing will always pay off; the key lies in using the best strategies for the market at hand. For investors who see the writing on the wall, but don't know what to do about it, The Little Book of Bull Moves in Bear Markets offers timely insights into how you can protect your portfolio and even profit during these uncertain economic times.
