Everything about investing has changed.

Despite the recent good news in the stock market, Jim Rickards and other experts make it clear that we’re not simply cycling out of another run-of-the-mill recession. Today’s market and global economy have created an investing environment never seen before.

Change means opportunity.

The old truisms about investing in stocks and bonds refer back to an economic reality that’s gone, and likely gone forever. So what do we do now? Should we own stocks at all? Where is the bond market headed? What about inflation and the devaluation of the dollar?

Paper, Gold or Chaos? The world doesn’t end when things change.

As global investing paradigms shift, it’s more important than ever that you have REAL information on what’s happening in the US and abroad. There are very few people who both understand today’s reality and are able to explain it to ordinary investors.

Jim Rickards is one of the few people who truly understand today’s global economy - and what it means to you.

Jim is the man the Department of Defense asked to help them understand (and resist) the threats facing the US economic foundation by the growing powers of China, India and other developing nations, and it’s no wonder that he appears so often on Bloomberg and is considered by many the pre-eminent financial expert of our time.

Ready to start asking your broker the right questions?

You are invited to spend an evening with Jim Rickards in a rare Philadelphia engagement. After speaking, Jim and other retirement and investing experts will be available to answer your burning questions about where the country and the world are going and how you can navigate the New Economy so that your dreams of financial freedom and security are once again firmly rooted in the ground of today’s reality.

Reviews of Rickards’ Best Selling Currency Wars

“In virtually every airport bookstore in America right now you will find a little sleeper of a book in the business section which is as riveting as a thriller and as hard to put down. James Rickards’ Currency Wars made this reader remember what Secretary of the Navy John Lehman so vividly told Tom Clancy after reading his multi-million-seller Hunt for Red October: “Who the hell cleared this?”

- Ralph Benko, Forbes

"Currency Wars is a must read for everyone, from classically-trained economists to small-time investors. But beware: after you read this book, instead of stuffing your mattress with cash, you may be inclined to do so with gold bullion."

- Pamela Farley

“Unlike the financial meltdown of '08, this time you can say you've been warned. Extremely timely, and yet ahead of its time, Currency Wars is a revelation."

- Terri Taylor
