Casey Research Totally Incorrect Vol 2: Doug’s New Book Report?
About Casey Research Totally Incorrect Vol 2
Casey Research is a financial publisher that sells insight and advice on investments and other financial topics. Their latest pitch involves offering people a free edition of the upcoming book Totally Incorrect, a follow-up to the book with the same name released in 2012. Both books were written by the founder of Casey Research, Doug Casey. However, the offer is made in a long-winded pitch made by Justin Spittler, who also works for Casey Research.
Team Behind Casey Research Totally Incorrect Vol 2
Throughout Spittler’s near-endless explanation for how readers can get a free version of Totally Incorrect, he describes Doug Casey as a “reclusive millionaire” who is known for making accurate predictions on large-scale world and financial events.
Splitter claims that Casey predicted the collapse of the USSR, the 2008 financial crisis, and the downfall of major companies like Sears and GM. He also says that Casey has engaged in head-to-head debates with many prominent politicians, advised several foreign governments, and invested in over 1,000 different companies.
Spittler’s description of Casey is obviously biased and more glowing than most people would give to their spouse on their wedding day. Casey’s profile on the Casey Research website reads the same way, expressing pride in his controversial and contrarian perspective while describing him as “one of the preeminent authorities on ‘rational speculation.’” Spittler makes it a point to mention that Casey has referred to political correctness as a “tsunami of raw sewage,” while also referring to the Quran as “really bad science,” among other things reasonable people would not be proud to have said.
Spittler himself is responsible for editing the Casey Daily Dispatch, a daily newsletter that is emailed to subscribers. He takes pride in traveling the world, much like Casey himself, in order to find hidden gems and unique investment opportunities. Spittler is also noted on the Casey Research website as being one of Doug Casey’s closest confidants, which explains why he is the one making the pitch on behalf of Casey, the “reclusive millionaire.”
What is Totally Incorrect Vol 2?
After giving an excessive amount of praise to Casey, Spittler eventually explains some of the content inside Totally Incorrect. Spittler describes the book as a “roadmap to modern America,” stating that it reads like a guidebook to the direction of the country. He says the book touches on a wide variety of issues, including the stock market, racial tension, feminism, refugees, and even Bitcoin and the advent of digital currencies.
Spittler says Casey is unafraid to refute reports from the mainstream and misconceptions that people may have. He explains Casey’s reasoning for wanting to share insights by saying that Casey is so rich and well-connected that he doesn’t care what other people think, which is a statement that reeks of arrogance and callousness from a man who has little regard for anything but himself.
Eventually, Spittler goes in-depth about what readers of Totally Incorrect can expect to learn. Among the insights that Casey provides in the book are:
- Investments that Casey has made and has high hopes for, calling them “the best opportunity since 1971.”
- Flaws in the financial system Casey refers to “a gigantic accident waiting to happen.”
- A startling prediction regarding the market bubble and what investors can do about it.
- What people should know about buying bonds, as well as what people who already own bonds should know.
- Where investors can find “the next super boom” and the event that Casey is waiting for that will let him and others know it’s about to happen.
Aside from financial and investment topics, Casey also goes into detail about his feelings about Donald Trump. Among the Trump-related highlights in Totally Incorrect are:
- Why Casey thinks it’s ridiculous to think that Russia is responsible for hacking the U.S. presidential election.
- What countries other than Russia and China that Casey believes we should be concerned about influencing future elections.
- The three people in Trump’s candidate who Casey considers to be the most problematic over the next two years.
- Why Casey is not a fan of Attorney General Jeff Sessions.
- Insight into one possible event that Casey believes could ruin Trump’s second year in the White House.
Casey also dedicates three chapters in Totally Incorrect to discussing cryptocurrency and related topics. In those chapters, he covers:
- Why the government will begin forcing people to use a cryptocurrency that the government itself has created.
- A prediction about the price of Bitcoin that an unnamed tech billionaire told Casey in a private meeting and how it could make the average person rich if they know what’s ahead.
- Why the cryptocurrency ecosystem is on the verge of bankrupting a $5 trillion business whose technology people use on a daily basis.
- Insight into a technology that could destroy digital currency but how people will be able to profit from it anyway.
There is also a slew of other topics that Casey touches upon in the book, including:
- Why the “politically correct” approach to racism is only going to make racial tension in the country worse and not better.
- What Casey believes is the real cause of the drug epidemic plaguing the U.S.
- Why Casey describes the Illinois debt crisis as “absolutely wonderful.”
- The three ways Casey is preparing himself for the federal government to become unhinged and out of control, and why ordinary people need to do the same.
Finally, Spittler gets to the exact deal he’s offering people. If they just pay the $4.95 shipping fee, people will receive a copy of Casey’s Totally Incorrect book. They will also get 30 days of free access to The Casey Report. After those 30 days, people will be charged $99 per year to subscribe to The Casey Report unless they call to cancel.
To sweeten the deal, Spittler also says he will include access to two reports written by Casey. One is called Uranium Bull: A Coming Shortage That Will Send One Stock Soaring, while the other is titled Last Chance for Marijuana Millions.
The Verdict on Totally Incorrect Vol 2 by Casey Research
Obviously, this is all a ploy to get you to subscribe to The Casey Report so that Casey Research can get $99 from you every year while trying to up-sell you on all of their other materials and offers. In theory, you could take your 30-day trial and cancel it while getting to keep Totally Incorrect and the two other reports.
However, it may not be worthwhile to go through all the trouble. Doug Casey may have viable credentials as an investor, but he’s a borderline conspiracy theorist who has little to no understanding of the average person. Spittler’s pitch is more a love letter to Casey than it is an offer to get Casey’s latest book for free.
On the surface, Casey’s book appears to be a hodgepodge of crazy theories, Casey’s own agenda, and misguided political beliefs. He may have made a few good calls in his life that made him millions of dollars, but that doesn’t make him insightful on every subject. The average person may be better off avoiding Casey’s most recent work and subjecting themselves to every thought that has ever entered his head.
