mcwilliamsMcWilliams Rickards interview here (from 34:16)

Key points covered are

  • We are already in global currency wars

  • End of the dollar as the benchmark global reserve currency coming

  • Higher inflationary – “all the currencies will fall against hard assets”

  • Massive financial crisis coming – complexity theory, behavioral economics shows this

  • “Allowing system to get larger and larger and we do not understand risk”

  • “In 1998, Wall Street bailed out a hedge fund; in 2008, the  central banks bailed out Wall Street; in the next financial crisis which could be tomorrow or could be in 2018, who is going to bail out the central banks?”

  • Best description of financial panic – “everybody wants their money back at same time …”

  • “Money in the bank is not money – it is an unsecured liability of an occasional insolvent financial institution..”

  • In a panic, everyone seeks to get their money “which is gold, silver or cash…”

  • Next financial crisis will be so great that dollar will fall sharply – be very inflationary

  • Prepare now with physical gold – “recommend 10%” allocation

  • Gold, silver, property, land, natural resources, fine art will do well in coming inflation

  • Stocks, bonds, pension funds “will be wiped out…”

  • Don’t trust financial institutions as they do not understand risks in system themselves …

  • “Blind leading the blind …”
