In finance, the "Rule of 72" is used to estimate the time it will take an investment to double in value.
It is also used to determine the opposite: the amount of time it will take a unit of currency to lose half of its purchasing power due to inflation.
Not that there's much left to calculate when it comes to the US dollar...
Since the inception of the Federal Reserve in 1913, the greenback has lost about 95% of its purchasing power.
And since 1971 – when President Nixon ended the last brittle connection between the dollar and gold – value destruction of the US currency has accelerated to an average loss in purchasing power of 4.4% per year.
To get an idea how massive a loss we're talking about here, take a look at the chart below, which shows the cumulative inflation rate since 1913...
The Consumer Price Index (CPI) has risen from 9.8 in January 1913 to 224.906 in April 2011... in other words, something that cost $9.80 in 1913 would cost $224.91 in 2011.
These are stunning numbers. But the insidious part is that mainstream investors' shirts are unraveling so slowly via inflation that most don't even notice that they're losing them... thread by thread.
That's why we make it our mission in our flagship advisory – The Casey Report – to present investors with solid inflation hedges... from low-risk, steady gainers like large-cap stocks and indices, to more risky but potentially highly rewarding small-cap companies and option plays.
And it's the very best financial minds who bring you valuable insights into big-picture trends, as well as actionable recommendations to protect and multiply your wealth...
The Trend Hunters
This group of brilliant minds form the editorial team of The Casey Report:
Chairman of Casey Research, Contrarian Investor, Acclaimed Financial Author, Public Speaker
If you have seen or listened to Doug live, you know why there's standing room only when he speaks at investment conferences all over North America. Not only has he become a living legend for his keen observations of the markets and his instinct for emerging trends, he is also famous – or should we say, infamous – for speaking his mind with few if any thoughts wasted on political correctness.
Doug literally wrote the book on profiting from periods of economic turmoil: Crisis Investing spent multiple weeks as #1 on the New York Times bestseller list and became the best-selling financial book of its time.
Bud, author of the book Profiting from the World's Economic Crisis, is the data-crunching genius and analytical brain of The Casey Report team. Convinced that a chart says more than a thousand words, he spends late nights exposing the financial schemes of governments and central banks. Educated at Yale and Harvard, Bud has been a futures investor for nearly 30 years and a full-time investor for more than 10. If you're lucky, you may run into him at Golden Gate University, where he teaches graduate courses in investing.
Economist, Sr. Editor
Terry Coxon is the man with the big-picture plan. Well versed in the ins and outs of economic theory, he knows that Situation A combined with Catalyst B will inevitably result in Consequence C. Terry is the author of two books, one of which – Inflation-Proofing Your Investments – he co-authored with the late Harry Browne, a legendary free-market libertarian writer and twice-presidential candidate. For more than two decades, he served as the president of the Permanent Portfolio Fund he founded, a mutual fund that invests in precious metals as well as stocks and bonds. currently Terry is the president of Passport Financial Inc., a specialty financial publishing company.
Managing Director & Editor
Aside from being one of Doug Casey's closest confidants, David Galland is the managing director of Casey Research and the managing editor of The Casey Report, providing razor-sharp insight into the economy and markets with a libertarian slant. He has extensive experience in the financial world – from years of running the famous New Orleans Investment Conference, to co-founding EverBank, one of the greatest and most solid successes in online financial services. Being exceptionally gifted in getting startups off the ground, he was also a founding partner and director of the Blanchard Group of Mutual Funds.
Your Eyes and Ears on the Ground
Every month, this star-studded cast takes apart and examines the economic apparatus of the United States (and other countries) to see what makes it tick... to find the grit in the gears that could bring the whole machinery to a screeching halt, and to discover the extraordinary opportunities hidden within today's complex economies.
For that purpose, they frequently consult experts from their vast network of connections – such as:
- Real-estate professional Andy Miller, co-founder and partner of the Miller Frishman Group
- A 40-year Wall Street insider and former CFO at one of the world's most powerful investment banks, dubbed the "Lord of Finance," who only agreed to speak candidly on the guarantee of anonymity
- And even 2012 Republican presidential candidate and former governor of New Mexico Gary Johnson, with his unique ideas on how to get the US government's debt load back on track
From the economic and political knowledge gained, the editors then devise the best investment strategies for Casey Report subscribers. Because, as Doug likes to say, every crisis involves opportunity as well as danger.
And you can take advantage of those opportunities for a fraction of the regular price right now...

Crisis Investing with the Pros
|American financial structure will be threatened... As people who bought houses with floating-rate mortgages and little money down slip into default, millions of dwellings will hit a no-bid market. And when hundreds of billions in loans go bad, the institutions holding them and the whole American financial structure will be with a deflationary collapse.
Doug Casey, October 2006
Near the peak of the housing market, when financial TV talking heads were falling over each other praising the "never-ending increase in home values," and many Americans used their homes as cash cows, Doug Casey and his team predicted that a major crisis was imminent.
Of course, back then barely anyone was listening – except for those subscribers who followed the editors' advice.
After a long and very eye-opening Casey Report interview with real estate entrepreneur Andy Miller, Doug and his team recommended shorting real estate investment trust Emcor (EME), closing the position with a quick two-month gain of 87% for subscribers.
In the summer of 2007, they advised shorting bond insurer MBIA – a company that stood squarely in the way of the approaching avalanche – with exceptional results: a 93.3% gain for Casey Report subscribers within 10 months.
But they didn't stop there. They correctly predicted the devastating credit and currency crisis we are now witnessing, which has led to an overall economic decline in the United States that most of us have never seen in our lifetimes.
And now they are foreseeing a wholesale collapse of the United States economy...
