This page is long overdue. Almost daily I’m asked where I buy gold, what books I read, what newsletters I subscribe to, etc. I’ll answer those questions on a single page so if you’re looking for resources to check out, just browse through this list.
Where I Buy Gold Online
I buy all of my gold and silver from SilverSaver.com now. I used to buy it from a collection of different sources, but now I just have it automatically set to slowly acquire gold and silver. It’s much simpler, and it’s much better for the average person.
Plus, I don’t have to think about it — which makes it much less likely I’ll worry over gold and silver prices.
My Subscriptions: Newsletters and Membership Sites.
I’m a firm believer that the best information is and won’t ever be completely free. I have several memberships to websites and traditional newsletters that are worth every penny I pay.
The following are those I would still stay subscribed to even if the price tripled. I’m subscribed to the following:
- The Elevation Group. This is the most politically incorrect website I’ve found, and I love it. There are thousands of people subscribed who believe just like we believe about gold, silver, investing, and making money from the recession. Read my longer review here.
- The Casey Report. The Casey Report is a publication of Doug Casey, one of richest, most brilliant “Austrian” investors in the world. Every month you receive 50+ pages of incredible data about what’s going on in the economy and the markets, along with editorials and recommendations. I fully recommend this.
- Early Warning Report. The US & World Early Warning Report is a publication of Richard Maybury. I interviewed him here. He predicted everything from the “war on terrorism”, the surge in military stocks, and the huge surge in gold. He’s made a killing for his newsletter subscribers. He focuses on analyzing the geopolitical issues rather than just the economics alone. Fantastic — worth every penny.
- Safe Haven Reports. I know, I know — it would be silly for me not to include my own membership website. Safe Haven Reports is probably the most politically incorrect “investing” website online — that doesn’t give absurdly risky advice. We operate from a “permaskeptic” mentality, which has worked out wonderfully so far. We’ve missed crashes and corrections while coasting to profits while the rest of the world is horrified at every news story. Learn more here.
- Arabian Money. This is an offbeat newsletter that’s based on Arabic analysis of the economy and the world. I don’t agree with everything — not even close. But I’m subscribed because I think it’s important to see how the Arabs view the world and what they’re doing to invest.
Book List: The Best Money and Gold Books.
I wish I could list all of my favorite books. I just can’t. I try to read as much as possible about investing, and over the summer I’ve even kicked it up a notch. I believe a well-read man is a well-prepared man — as long as he’s reading the right books.
Here are the 5 most influential books I’ve read, and most are under ten bucks:
- Fail-Safe Investing, by Harry Browne. If you only read one book about investing, make it this one. It’ll help you set up a portfolio that will survive any market, without need for change. You can stop worrying about the news and focus on the rest of your life. It’s really that simple. I reference the strategies of this book in almost everything I have ever written and ever will write.
- Crash Proof, by Peter Schiff. This is a great book that predicted the current economic crash we’ve experienced a couple of years before it happened. He explains some important strategies like precious metals, having stocks from non-US countries as well as other anti-recession tactics.
- Guide to Investing In Gold and Silver, by Michael Maloney. This is a great book if you’re looking for more traditional reasons for buying gold. This has everything from a “gold-bug” perspective. I don’t agree with it all, but it’s a must-read if you want to be well-informed about investing in gold.
- The Clipper-Ship Strategy, by Richard Maybury. I base every business and investing strategy on this book. Long story short, you need to read it. Richard Maybury, the author, is my ideological hero — his writings have given me prosperity and financial freedom in every financial endeavor I’ve tried so far. This book explains the basic strategy that you should use, regardless of who you are. Seriously, this book is amazing.
- The 4-Hour Workweek, by Tim Ferriss. If you find yourself strapped for time, this is the book for you. I know it’s not related to gold directly, but it’ll explain why some strategies work more than others — it’s called the 80-20 principle, and it has more impacts than just your gold portfolio.
You can find most of these on Amazon.
I’ll be updating this as I find more membership websites, newsletters, and resources that every investor should check out. So check back often. If you’re not already subscribed, join our free email newsletter below to get updates once or twice per week.
