Most people know Jim Rickards because of his two New York Times best-selling books: Death of Money and Currency Wars. But he’s much more than a best-selling author. He was involved in the Iran hostage crisis in the 1980s. In the 1990s, he was the principal negotiator in the bailout of hedge fund Long-Term Capital Management (LTCM) by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. He also helped develop one of the first electronic stock exchanges… the same system NASDAQ uses today. More recently, he’s been advising the CIA, the Pentagon, the NSA and 14 other U.S. intelligence agencies. He’s on a first-name basis with some the biggest investors and traders on Wall Street, CEOs of major banks, even members of the Federal Reserve… and has connections all the way to the US Treasury and the White House. We believe nobody knows more about risk management, global markets and currencies than Rickards. And that’s what makes him the perfect person to help regular folks prepare to what he considers “the greatest single threat” to Americans: the collapse of the dollar.
"This excellent book proves that, contrary to the propaganda of fiat currency apologists, gold is real money. Rickards makes a compelling case for why those looking for a way to protect themselves and their families from economic chaos created by central bankers should consider gold."
"We can’t trust the Federal Reserve to do the honest work that Jim Rickards has done in writing this book. When the monetary system finally fails, there will be a flight to the only money that’s left in the system—and that will be gold. Essential reading."
"…Though I was tempted at first to dismiss him as alarmist, his intelligent reasoning soon convinced me that we have more to fear than fear itself…"
