In today’s Exponential Investor

  • The last, perhaps most important Gold Week essay so far
  • The New Great Depression?
  • Get ready for the Gold Summit

What good would a “Gold Week” takeover of Exponential Investor be without hearing from Nick Hubble!

I’ve known Nick for eight years now and his insight into the machinations of the world’s financial system is second to none.

I think it’s best you just read what he has to say below and go from there.

Winners and losers in a post-pandemic world

By Nick Hubble

The end of the pandemic draws ever closer. Would you like to know what the “new normal” will look like?

I have my own views – which I will be presenting at the Gold Summit next week.

The thing is, I was beaten to the chase by one of the world’s most credible and successful analysts. If you want to know what the post-pandemic world will look like, Jim Rickards is the man you should be listening to first. And his book, The New Great Depression – Winners and Losers in a Post-Pandemic World, is the book to read.

You’ll discover…

  • The origins of the pandemic and what they’ll mean for geopolitics and financial markets, just when the dust appears to settle
  • The shape of recoveries and what’s actually in them
  • The surprising recovery mechanism that governments won’t use, but you can

… and more.

In this episode of The 12 I interview Jim Rickards about his book and one of his favourite topics – gold.

If you’ve encountered Jim before, I’m sure you’ll watch it. If not, this is the beginning of a long journey with an extraordinary man who has lived an extraordinary life involving the CIA, Long-Term Capital Management and the Pentagon’s first economic war games.

But what is The 12?

As you can imagine, the editorial team at Southbank Investment Research do a lot of reading. And we recommend books to each other. Including what to avoid…

I thought it was time we passed this valuable resource on to our many readers of our various newsletters. So you can allocate your reading time a little better too.

But how?

What we came up with is The 12. Each month, we interview an author about a book we think you should consider reading. And you’ll find our seventh episode here.
