James Rickards - 2024 Brings Financial Crisis, Election Chaos & The End For The Dollar


Economist & Former Advisor To The Pentagon and CIA

Today on London Real, we welcome back our great friend and one of the foremost experts when it comes to matters of the global economy and the surrounding geopolitical issues. In fact, no one is better placed to separate fact from fiction than Jim Rickards.

Jim is a straight shooter who deals in facts and evidence. He’s forgotten more than most will ever know when it comes to finance, investing and the global marketplace. Jim is also the man that predicted the biggest financial crash in American history, but he believes that may well pale in comparison to what is on the horizon.

Jim is a former lawyer and investment banker turned economist and bestselling author and if there’s one thing you can guarantee with Jim, it’s that he’ll leave you with more answers than questions, and offer some rock-solid advice for protecting your wealth.

These are no normal times, but if there’s one man who has been around his fair share of financial crises and economic upheavals, it’s Jim Rickards. Jim believes we’re staring in the face of a collapsing global economy, and he’s been right many times before.

And, on top of the war in Ukraine, we have the prospect of a truly chaotic election race that will make 2024 a year of huge political turmoil.

“The election deck is full of wild cards. Biden’s demise? Trump’s imprisonment? Kamala’s incompetence? This will be a volatile and surprising election cycle.”

Jim spent over 35 years smack bang in the beating heart of Wall Street, holding senior positions at some of the world’s largest financial service institutions including Citibank, Long-Term Capital Management, and Caxton Associates.

For many, Jim Rickards is the man who negotiated the $4 billion rescue of LTCM sponsored by the Federal Reserve, a crisis that came within hours of shutting every major securities exchange in the world.

For others, he’s the bestselling author who makes it a habit to top the New York Times bestseller list with his hugely successful catalogue of books including The New Great Depression, The Road to Ruin, The Death of Money, and Currency Wars.

In his most recent book – Sold Out: How Broken Supply Chains, Surging Inflation and Political Instability Will Sink the Global Economy, Jim explores the idea that consumer frustration is only the tip of a very large, menacing iceberg that threatens global economic collapse.

The book is a must-read and breaks down why the shelves in the food store are empty, who fractured the supply chain and why these shortages will persist.

During his time, Jim has advised the US Department of Defence, the US intelligence community, and major hedge funds on global financial issues, and has served as a facilitator of the first-ever financial war games conducted by The Pentagon.

He is a guest lecturer in globalisation and finance at the School of Advanced International Studies at Johns Hopkins University, Georgetown University, Trinity College Dublin, the US Army War College, and the National Defense University.

While his insights and observations are featured regularly in some of the biggest publications in the world including the Financial Times, Evening Standard, The Telegraph, New York Times, and Washington Post.

On top of all that, Jim is the editor of the financial newsletter, Strategic Intelligence, which I highly recommend for anyone trying to get a better handle on what’s really happening.

“It’s often the case that one or more major economies are in recession while others display growth and help pull the weak performers out of the ditch. But today, we’re facing a case where, one after the other, all of the major economies are falling into the ditch.”

Of course, who suffers most, in the end, is you, the taxpayer. One way or another regardless of what they say, everyday people will foot the bill. Jim believes it all comes down to leadership, and right now the US is suffering from a complete lack thereof.

Jim explains that the sanctions on Russia have failed miserably and despite the enormous military aid from the US, Britain and the EU, Russia will inevitably win this war. What impact will that have on the election race?

As the BRICS+ alliance goes from strength to strength, the dollar faces uncertain times as the global desire to find a new medium of exchange has quickly gone from a discussion point to a looming reality.

I always look forward to my conversations with Jim, as for every warning there’s a dose of insight that we can use to our advantage. The world is changing, but it is up to us to make sure we’re ahead of the game.

I can’t wait to discuss the economic implications of what’s happening right now, the Presidential race, the climate change agenda and the inevitable impact of artificial intelligence.

“Ukraine has no chance of winning the war, but the war may escalate anyway. Biden’s team does not want to admit a humiliating defeat. They want to keep the war going until after the 2024 election to help Biden’s reelection chance.”
