Dines, also author of How the Average Investor Can Use Technical Analysis for Stock Profits (a 1972 shuck), makes a business of predicting bad news in the most offensively emotionalistic rhetoric. The idea for this book came to him during an appearance on The Joe Franklin Show with Harry Browne. Even though Browne has certainly gotten ahead of him on the best-seller list, Dines claims to be ""one of the first, if not the first, of the well-known American security analysts to detect the gold crisis."" Here he displays his righteous indignation at ""too much government,"" the Fed and inflation (both are ""Frankensteins""), Keynesian theory (which he likens to a heroin needle) and FDR. He predicts the Crash of 1969 is going to get even worse although you can cover your ass now by continuing to buy those gold shares. Excerpts from his Dines Letter prove he's been on this jag for nigh onto a decade. For fanatics with lumps in their mattresses.
