Charles Goyette is a libertarian-conservative commentator, who is noted for his outspoken anti-war views, his opposition to the war in Iraq, and his economic commentary.[1]

Overview[edit]

He is the author of the New York Times bestselling book The Dollar Meltdown: Surviving the Impending Currency Crisis with Gold, Oil, and Other Unconventional Investments, which Congressman Ron Paul calls "a must read," and investor Peter Schiff describes as "...a sensible plan to protect your wealth."[2]

His latest book is Red and Blue and Broke All Over: Restoring America's Free Economy.[3]

Goyette is also the editor of the Freedom & Prosperity Letter, a monthly political and financial newsletter. The newsletter includes biweekly podcasts.

Family History[edit]

According to Arizona Daily Star newspaper reporter, David Leighton, Charles Goyette is the grandson of C. Edgar "Ed" Goyette, who was a prominent citizen of Tucson. Ed Goyette, was executive secretary of the Tucson Chamber of Commerce from 1940 to 1960 and much of Tucson's growth was due to his work in bringing new industry and military installations to the city. He was named Tucson’s “Man of the Year” for 1958 by the Tucson Advertising Club and former Arizona Governor Paul Fannin proclaimed Ed Goyette Day on April 5, 1960.
