Publisher's Summary

From the best-selling author of Currency Wars and The Death of Money comes a short, provocative argument for the enduring value of gold.
James Rickards is the most visible, vocal, and intelligent proponent for the gold standard today, and his unwavering stance on gold's value has drawn him hordes of lifelong fans. In The New Case for Gold, Rickards explains why gold is one of the safest assets for investors in times of political instability and market volatility and how every investor should look to add gold to his or her portfolio. He draws on historical case studies, monetary theory, and personal experience as an investor to argue that gold should be a part of any prudent investor's portfolio. And he provides tools and mental models for how investors can make the case for gold to the skeptics in their lives. A must-listen for any fan of Ron Paul's End the Fed or Rickards' previous works.

Another Masterpiece by James Rickards

James Rickards does it again. I really enjoyed this book. What is unique about the audiobook is that it is actually narrated by Rickards himself. If you're like me, you could listen to this man speak for hours on end. While listening to this book, I often found myself wondering how one can become so well versed on matters ranging from physics to finance to history all in less than one human lifetime. Rickards is brilliant and, if you enjoyed his other books you'll enjoy this one.

One aspect of this book that I particularly enjoy is how Rickards takes subjects as daunting as complexity theory and international finance and discusses them in a manner that less astute individuals, such as myself, can comprehend seamlessly. I could not put this book down and finished in a couple sittings. Above all else, I value the education that Rickards provides in his book. He does it in a way that keeps me interested and entertained... hanging on his every word.

Practical perspective on gold

I enjoyed listening to this book. The topic can be a bit dry at times and I would have liked some advice in the type of physical gold to buy. There was nothing said besides coins over ETFs and futures. Buying mining stock if you have the stomach for it. More comments on eagle v buffalo and billion v just blanks and why would have been nice. That really was my whole purpose for buying the book. I enjoyed listening to the author.
