I have read quite a bit from Jim Rickards, including ”The Death of Money: the collapse of the International monetary system”. I try not to react to certain things, it gets confusing when I read certain things that seem, at least on the surface, to make sense. In Jim Rickards book he does have some very dire predictions based on certain shenanigans in the global financial system which have not really been addressed since the collapse in 2008, including $17 TRILLION of high-risk derivatives out there thanks to the still To Big To Fail Banks. Also, as we see, the geopolitical forces in the world are a mess. And the Federal Reserve keeps playing with economic indicators. That said, is a prediction of a 70% collapse of the stock market due to these ”dark” forces a real possibility or just hype? I have learned enough through various readings to be fairly confused. The sense by Jim Rickards and some others is that the financial day of reckoning is not too far down that road. I don’t want to become Chicken Little, but some of what he says makes sense. Any more well-informed thoughts out there? Thanks!
