With remarkable insight and accuracy, he foresaw the rise of gold at $35 before it rose to $850, recommended silver at 92-1/2 cents before it rose to $50, concluded that South Africa was a relatively safe haven for gold investors and that apartheid would end peacefully before it was politically correct to do so, foresaw the great inflation of the 70s, and with amazing social and political expertise he actually foresaw China as a "great" investor buying opportunity back in 1979 and the collapse of Soviet communism years before the Western world had any indication of this outcome. Mr Dines turned bearish on Japan's Nikkei at 38,000 around 1989, the rest of Asia in 1993, and most recently having predicted in 1996 that there would be a global currency crisis with its origins based in the Far East. Known for his highly-readable style, including a wry sense of humor, Mr Dines prides himself on making his work accessible to beginners, yet having sufficient depth and focus for professionals.
