“The Death of Money contains very big, provocative ideas clearly explained and delivered in an evenhanded tone that steers away from the sensational proclamation yet successfully undercuts conventional market wisdom. Rickard’s insight enables him to connect the dots in a way that few others can. A worthy successor to Currency Wars.”
– JOHN HATHAWAY portfolio manager, Tocqueville Gold Fund.
“Jim Rickards is a natural teacher. Any serious student of financial crises and their root causes needs to read this book.”
−JOHN H. MAKIN, Ph.D. resident scholar, American Enterprise Institute; former chief economist, Caxton Associates.
