“Everything that was ‘too big to fail’ in 2008 is bigger and more dangerous today,” says New York Times bestselling author James Rickards. Rickards predicts the crash of the global currency market and insolvency of the U.S. dollar in his latest book, The Death of Money: The Coming Collapse of the International Monetary System. “We’re waiting for the catalyst that will cause this catastrophe to come tumbling down.”
