Thursday, April 17th at 7 p.m.
James Rickards, author of The Death of Money, will be our featured speaker.
The international monetary system has collapsed three times in the past hundred years, in 1914, 1939 and 1971. Each collapse was followed by a period of tumult: war, civil unrest, or significant damage to the stability of the global economy. Now James Rickards, the acclaimed author of Currency Wars, shows why another collapse is rapidly approaching – and why this time, nothing less than the institution of money itself is at risk.
Advance Praise for The Death of Money
"A terrifically interesting and useful book . . . fascinating.” — Kenneth W. Dam, Former Deputy Secretary of the Treasury and Adviser to three Presidents
