"When this clock ticks to zero, it will trigger an event
that could effectively END the American Empire..."
Dear Reader,
There's a reason we don't speak Latin in boardrooms, movies or on the nightly news.
It's the same reason India is no longer a British colony.
And that the French and the Dutch no longer share huge tracts of Africa.
In short, it's because empires... all of them... end.
I'm writing you now because it's America's turn.
As a citizen that's served my country many times before, including advising the U.S. Intelligence agencies on matters of national security...
Believe me, I take no pleasure in seeing our empire crumble.
I don't want to see these events play out.
But the fact of the matter is this -- it's simply too late to reverse course.
Because on January 1st, 2017... at exactly 12:01 am...
While champagne corks are still popping...
And New Year's confetti has yet to hit the ground...
A long-awaited, fully scheduled trigger event will take place. When it does, you could see the already RAPID decline of the American empire pick up pace.
How so?
Like I said, my name is Jim Rickards.
I've spent the last 43 years studying the combined impact of exactly these kinds of events. For 35 of those years, I was both an attorney and risk analyst on Wall Street.
I've warned investors in two New York Times best-sellers... "Currency Wars" in 2011... "The Death of Money" in 2014... and my latest book, "The New Case For Gold."
Maybe you've also seen me making the rounds on just about every major network...
I've been showing up on Fox News, CNBC, CNN and Bloomberg.
I've even been called in to share my findings with the CIA, the Pentagon, and other high-level insiders in both Washington and on Wall Street.
Time after time, I've laid out the case for how our reckless Fed, the rise of digital cash, and our global currency wars... are already targeting the U.S. dollar and our way of life.
Most recently, I told investors to watch out for a very specific attack on the dollar that would take place on September 30th.
On that date, I said the world's most powerful financial body would release a new form of money, specifically designed to replace the U.S. dollar as the world's reserve currency.
That release -- we call it "world money" -- did happen, just as predicted.
And those are just some of the reasons that I've famously called for gold to climb as high as $10,000 an ounce.
Yet as worrisome as all that is, now there's something more.
A new development that still lies ahead...
And one that should alarm you more than all of these other events combined.

January 1, 2017

I promise you, not one American in 100,000 knows about this threat.
Let alone how it could shear the top off the U.S. stock market...
How it will cannibalize your retirement savings...
And why it's this event that could speed up America's rapid decline.
Before I tell you what it is, let me show you what it could mean...
  • Soon after this "trigger event," you could see central banks WORLDWIDE empty dollars from their vaults to make room for the replacement currency I've just told you about.
  • You'll see just how fast the world stock markets can fall off a cliff...faster even than in 2008... as governments and Wall Street scramble to adjust to this new reality.
  • You'll find out just how fast an event like this can gut your savings account, too... and hike up the prices you pay for everything, from fancy gadgets to basics like groceries and gasoline...
  • Soon after this trigger event takes place, you'll see our global "credit card" get snipped in half... as the world loses every last reason to tolerate our exploding piles of debt.
  • You'll see our leaders completely humiliated on the world's stages...losing all leverage in all their negotiations - from world trade to a global response to terrorism.
  • You could see U.S. tax rates soar in response, as D.C. loses its sway at global Treasury auctions...and scrambles for another source of cash.
  • You'll see how this development cuts into government social programs, from Social Security to Medicare... and cuts our spending on highways, bridges, and border security.
  • You'll even get to see inside a Swiss gold I show you what our visit reveals about how other countries, especially China, have been prepping for this power shift for years.
Will this be the ultimate monetary apocalypse?
Not exactly.
In fact, it won't even be the first time we've seen a currency implosion in the past 100 years. We've had others — in 1914, 1939, and 1971.
What I am warning you is that this new "trigger event" in January will speed us faster toward this next collapse, more so than anything else we've seen this year.
First it will amplify the trend.
Then it will knock way the final pillar that's holding up the American empire.
It's got nothing to do with our new President.
It's not a terror attack.
It's something far simpler, far less obvious.
It's a financial event that will make the end of the U.S. dollar -- and by extension, the end of our reach as an empire -- inevitable. And much sooner than most of us imagine.
Fortunately, there are steps you can take to protect yourself.
I'll spell out three of them here.
All three are steps I hope to take too, for myself and my family. None of them are complicated. All of them could shelter you during this next phase of the coming crisis.
The first will show you how to hedge yourself and your wealth what could be a rapid backslide in the U.S. dollar. It could even show you an extraordinary eight-to-one return.
The second reveals how to avoid what could easily be another 2008-level wipeout in stocks. Specifically, there are toxic, well-known shares you'll want to dump.
Plus you'll see how to make money on the same downward move.
In my own career, I've made gains on falling shares as high as 3,000%.
Then you'll see a radical new way to get ahead of this "trigger event"... and the move to dethrone the dollar that could follow... by owning a stake in currency set to replace it.
This last move would normally not be possible for most regular investors. But I've found an original, accessible way to do it. I know of nobody else who's identified it.
The bottom line is, you don't need to feel helpless.
Not only can you use what I'm about to show you to preserve your wealth... and protect yourself, long after the fallout from this January "trigger event"... you could get richer too.
That's what history's wealthiest investors always figure out how to do. It's what I want to show you how to do now. And once you're ready, there's more.
Including a simple formula I've worked out for gold buyers. It shows you exactly how much gold you should own, according to your total net worth.
Plus, what kind of gold... where to buy it... and how to safely store it.
(Hint:You DON'T want to keep it at your local bank or in a safe deposit box.)
Also, there's an extraordinary way to lock up returns as high as 30 times your money, if this coming dollar collapse goes as deep and as far as I expect.
But before we get to any of this, let me tell you a little bit more about where this warning comes from... and why I'm in such a unique position to help you survive it.

Who Am I To Say?

As I said, if you haven't already seen me on the national news shows, you might know me from my two New York Times best-sellers, "Currency Wars," "The Death of Money," and my latest work, "The New Case For Gold."
For 35 years, I worked not just as a lawyer but as risk analyst on Wall Street. I ran the market intelligence firm that exposed new global currency manipulation. In 2009, I testified in front of Congress about financial modeling and the 2008 crash.
But it's my work behind the scenes that gets me special access most others don't get.
For instance, maybe you remember Long Term Capital Management, the giant hedge fund that blew up in the '90s... and almost took down the entire world stock market.
I was the lead attorney on that case, called in by the Fed to negotiate the bailout.
A few years later, the CIA called me in just after planes hit the Twin Towers in New York. They wanted me to help scan the markets for strange, big trades... like big bets on airline stocks.
We figured it would help us expose even more planned attacks.
In 2010, I did something similar involving New Scotland Yard. We used my risk models to uncover a terror plot in London, just days before it was about to happen.
And in 2009, I got called in for a closed-door meeting at the Pentagon... to create and oversee their first ever "financial war game" simulation... to expose security weaknesses in U.S. banks.
The good news is that my team and I "won" that game.
The bad news is, we were playing as the Chinese team.
Listen, the bottom line is this -- I've spent years cultivating these same risk analysis tools I'm about to apply for you today, in this presentation.
In all that time, the alarm bells have never rung as clearly as they're ringing now.
You'll need to understand the risks. You'll want to know what to do to get ready. And you'll want to do all of it well ahead of this January "trigger event" and its outcome.
Otherwise, you could lose everything.
I'm in a unique position to help clarify that risk. I'm in an even better position to show you how to protect yourself and your family from the coming fallout.
Now let me tell you what this event is and why it could have so much impact...

After January 1st, 2017:
Welcome To The New World Order

First let me ask you this...
When you hear the phrase "financial elites," who comes to mind?
George Soros, Warren Buffet, and Bill Gates?
Trump or Bloomberg?
They're rich, but they've got nothing on this crowd.
I'm talking of course about the group that runs what the Economist calls "the most powerful financial institution on earth..."
A group that's got their finger on the button of the entire global economy... and holds the fate of trillions of dollars hostage, with just a few strokes of a pen.
Maybe you've guessed, I'm talking about the heads of the International Monetary Fund. But what's that got to do with this "trigger event" warning for January?
Consider, the IMF has 189 member countries.
And many of these countries would love to move away from the ONE thing that's made the American empire so powerful, over these last 70 years...
Not our military might.
Not our diplomatic reach or our ingenuity.
But nothing short of the current worldwide dependence on the fate of the U.S. dollar.
Up until now, it's the dollar that fills the central banks of the world. And the dollar that's used for just about every large-scale transaction between nations.
Even those doing business with partners other than the U.S.
You can't begin to imagine what huge advantages that's meant for us, as masters of that reserve currency. Or what a drag it's been on other economies at the same time.
See, dollar reserves come with baggage... namely, our explosive $19 trillion in debt.
Meanwhile, the member countries look at the IMF and it seems like an oasis by comparison.
They've got no wars or no roads to pay for, no welfare recipients, and no social security checks to write.
And nothing close to our levels of debt.
For the rest of the world, the IMF has the last clean balance sheet.
And the way they see it, it's the IMF -- not the United States -- that should hold the strings to the world's purse. With centralized money, a centralized market, even a centralized government.
The centralized money these other countries could use already exists. It's the "world money" I told you about earlier. All that remains is the vote to swap it into place.
This is what could follow the "trigger event" on January 1st, 2017.

Here's How The U.S. Loses Its
Stranglehold on World Power

Up until now, only one country in the IMF's 189 member countries had enough power to veto a vote against the dollar... and lucky for us, that country was the Unites States.
See, the way the IMF works is each country gets a certain percentage voting clout.
Here, take a look at this chart...
As you can see, the U.S. is the only country with a percentage over 15%.
That's exactly enough voting power to veto any IMF proposal.
Up until now, it's why it's been easier for the U.S. to call the shots.
However, this coming year -- 2017 -- those quotas are set to "re-balance."
And they're going to re-balance away from U.S. interests like, say, keeping the dollar as the world's #1 reserve currency.
