James Rickards - Countdown To Crisis: How To Prepare for the Upcoming Economic Collapse


Today’s guest is making his third timely appearance in the London Real hot seat. Jim Rickards is a former lawyer and investment banker turned economist and bestselling author who has correctly predicted a catalogue of unseen financial events that have taken place in recent decades.

Indeed, every time I have had the pleasure of sitting down with Jim, it feels like we’re in the midst of some sort of cataclysmic global event that is directly impacting all of our lives. That is no coincidence because if there’s one thing you can say about Jim Rickards, it’s that he’s a man in the know, particularly and most pertinently when it comes to matters of economic uncertainty. The difference is Jim is certainly right 99% of the time.

I have made it my business to try and inspire people from all walks of life, to chase their goals and reach for the stars, and I get inundated with emails and messages and even people stopping me on the street to ask me what my thoughts are on significant current affairs. The fact is people are finding it hard right now, but it is exactly times like these where the greatest opportunities lie.

Of course, first and foremost you must get educated and acquainted with the right kind of information, from the right people. Those who have been there and done it – which is why it’s a pleasure to welcome Jim back on the show, so we can dissect exactly what’s happening in the world right now.

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 that was overseen 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.

He has correctly outlined on numerous occasions a future that has now since been and gone and as people around the planet suffer from a cost of living situation that is fast becoming untenable, Jim argues things could get much worse before they get better.

Jim has also advised the U.S. Department of Defense, the U.S. 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 U.S. 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.

Jim is keen to point out that each financial crisis is worse than the one before and sooner or later we could reach the point where the crisis is simply too big for the FED to stop!

“Think of it as dominos falling and they’re going to keep falling unless you truncate it and drop a wall in – that wall was the FED – but the point is each bailout gets bigger than the one before, and each crisis is more dangerous than the one before.”

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

It is Jim’s perspective and insight on our post-pandemic future, that I believe can help so many of us prepare, and how consumers and small business owners alike can be ahead of this inevitable collapse.

Jim believes we’re racing towards a future where the dollar will no longer be the global reserve currency, and a new supply chain starts to take shape. He also has some hard facts about the war in Ukraine and warns us all of an inevitable yet worrying scenario, where the world goes cashless once and for all.

Countdown To Crisis

For years professional traders have taken home massive returns during a stock market crash.

  • Jamie Mai – 8,000% (in a year during the 2008 financial crisis)
  • Bill Ackman – 10,000% (in a few weeks during the coronavirus crash)
  • Nassim Taleb – 67,000% (in a single day during the ‘87 Black Monday)

And with special market indicators saying a crash is just around the corner…

I thought you’d like the chance to do the same. That’s why Jim Rickards has revealed a simple play that could 10X in the months and weeks during a market crash.

Absolutely free.

I always look forward to my conversations with Jim, as there is so much insight and information 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 believe this period represents a great opportunity for those willing to dig in and get the work done.
