I did not sign up for his publication. He may be a good investment counselor but Rickards claims the government is preparing for WWIII, that our monetary system will fail and the Federal Reserve will be bankrupt. He claims he can tell you where to safely invest your money and which banks to put your money in. If the FR goes bankrupt then it seems to me your money will not be safe regardless of where you put it. If our monetary system fails then money will have little value even if you put in your mattress. After watching an hour long interview with Rickards I got the feeling he is a doom and gloom fear-monger just trying to make a buck off the current poor state of affairs in this country. As far as WWWIII goes, war is always a possibility (how often have we NOT been in a war of some kind?) and if our government isn't continually preparing for it, then they are idiots.
