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. You can secure your free place to that event here. To ensure you receive all the warm-up material, including several free no-obligation reports, sign up now.

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.
