In this New York Times bestseller and Wall Street Journal
bestseller, Rickards explores the future of the international
monetary system. "A fast-paced and apocalyptic look at the
financial future, taking in financiers' greed, central banks'
incompetence and impending Armageddon for the dollar ...Rickards
may be right that the system is going wobbly". (Financial Times).
The international monetary system has collapsed three times in the
past hundred years. Each collapse was followed by a period of war,
civil unrest, or damage to the stability of the global economy. Now
James Rickards explains why another collapse is rapidly
approaching. The US dollar has been the global reserve currency
since the end of the Second World War. If the dollar fails the
entire international monetary system will fail with it. But
Washington is gridlocked, and America's biggest competitors -
China, Russia, and the Middle East - are doing everything possible
to end US monetary hegemony.
