Guide to Investing in Gold and Silver

Michael Maloney
Authors:
Michael Maloney

First published in 2008, the book quickly became a bestseller not just for its timely insight into precious metals investment -- but for its amazingly accurate prediction of a 'Roller Coaster Crash' -- the manipulated whipsaw between inflation, deflation and back again. In this latest update to his book, author Michael Maloney adds his thoughts on what has played out so far, what we may be facing soon, and how gold and silver can help you transform the coming economic storm into a once in a lifetime opportunity. Gold & Silver have served as the ultimate safe-haven from financial chaos throughout history, and today is no exception. All the underlying fundamentals that caused the financial meltdown of 2008 have not been solved, but have been magnified by the actions of the world's central banks. The bailouts, currency creation, market manipulation, derivatives expansion, and growth of the "too big to fail" banks only guarantee that the next crisis will make the crash of 2008 look like a speed-bump on the way to the main event. Never in history has the global economy stood at such a precipice, and never in history has it been more vital to understand how, why and where to invest in gold and silver.

'This book shows how to find, attract, develop, motivate, and retain stars. It's full of evidence and provocative ideas to help every talent leader' Dr Adam Grant, Wharton Professor, New York Times bestselling author, Originals and Give and Take'This is the book I want to hand every manager I've ever worked with . . . Every chapter is filled with quotes, findings, and ideas that I want to post on Twitter and share with the world' Dr. Todd Carlisle, VP of HR, Twitter WHY THE SCIENCE OF PEOPLE IS YOUR KEY WEAPON IN THE WAR FOR TALENTAll organisations have problems, and they nearly always concern people: how to manage them; whom to hire, fire or promote; and how to motivate, develop and retain high potential employees. Psychology, the main science for understanding people, should be a pivotal tool for solving these problems - yet most companies play it by ear, and billions of dollars are wasted on futile interventions to attract and retain the right people for key roles.Bridging the gap between the psychological science of talent and common real-world talent practices, The Talent Delusion aims to educate HR practitioners and leaders on how to measure, predict and manage talent. It will provide readers with data-driven solution to the common problems around employee selection, development and engagement; how to define and evaluate talent; how to detect and inhibit toxic employee behaviours; and how to identify and harness leadership potential.
