Jim Rickards: We Are Uncomfortably Close to “Ice-Nine”

Maneco64, Released on 3/18/20

Today I talk with Jim Rickards about the current meltdown in the financial markets and ask him how close we are to what he described as Ice-Nine in his book Road to Ruin. We also touch upon what we could expect in terms of a new monetary architecture for the world after the inevitable meltdown of the current post-Bretton Woods Petrodollar system. Jim’s conclusion is those countries that hold the most gold will be at the head table in charge of drawing up a new monetary system.
