Your favorite financial contrarian spreads the wealth in interviews on forty separate topics Investment guru Doug Casey made headlines with the financial approach he advocated in Totally Incorrect. Casey believes that the best returns come from going against the grain, and taking a closer look at what everyone else is leaving behind. This rational approach to speculation struck a chord with the investing public, inspiring the follow-up book Right on the Money: Doug Casey on Economics, Investing, and the Ways of the Real World with Louis James. In Right on the Money, Casey expands upon the basic ideas presented in Totally Incorrect, and translates them into actionable steps to take today to ensure a secure financial future. In a series of forty interviews, Casey presents his views on various topics, including investments, assets, real estate, and ethics. With his usual candor, he advocates for immediate action and lays down the path from idea to investment.
Regardless of your position on each topic, you'll be forced to consider a perspective you've never before considered on topics such as: * Protecting your assets with educated speculation * The pros and cons of gold, cattle, and real estate * Ethics of investing and the morality of money * The impact of the EU, Africa, Egypt, and North Korea No matter what topic he focuses on, Casey's primary message is always clear: act now. Stop paralysis by analysis and take the leap. You only get one financial future, and it's up to you to make it as secure and comfortable as possible. In Right on the Money: Doug Casey on Economics, Investing, and the Ways of the Real World with Louis James, Casey presents the case for investing against the grain, and reaping the rewards others have passed over.

Back cover copy


"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 not--at first--at 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 money--and 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." --LEW ROCKWELL LewRockwell.com
