Jim welcomes Jim Rickards to discuss his new book: The New Case for Gold. Through his depth of experience and sound analysis, Rickards offers a thought-provoking and compelling case for gold in today’s turbulent world. He takes on six popular arguments against holding gold and shows that none of them hold up to analysis and scrutiny. Rickards also looks at gold from a historical basis and notes that even legendary economist John Maynard Keynes favored gold at many times throughout his long career. James Rickards is Chief Global Strategist of West Shore Funds, where he focuses primarily on alternative investing, macroeconomic trends and global currency & monetary policy.
