Smart investing strategies from bestselling author and America's consumer advocate for financial safety
Filled with against-the-grain attitude and seasoned market wisdom, Crash Profits explains not only how to survive, but how to make money before, during, and after a crash. Using real examples fresh from the financial pages, Weiss delineates the full range of risks facing the average American. He shows readers how to see through the lies that Wall Street tells and how to find safer alternatives to stock investing, as well as what to sell, how to sell, and when to sell (and when not to sell). Here's the unvarnished truth about investing today, coupled with the strategies every American can use to turn windfall profits while others are losing their shirts.
