James Rickards, a top adviser for the Pentagon and CIA, is sounding the alarm that America is on the brink of a global “financial war.”
“Rival nations and terrorist organizations are developing capabilities in unconventional warfare,” Rickards commented in a Newsmax interview. “Things like cyber warfare, biological or chemical warfare, and now, financial weapons of mass destruction.”
And this “financial war” is a battle America isn’t prepared to win.
Rickards believes that as this conflict escalates, it will “cause oil to skyrocket above $190 a barrel, gold to surge to $3,000 an ounce, and, in its aftermath, it could completely decimate the wealth of millions.”
Rickards’ assessment is not one to be taken lightly. The first two “financial wars” he refers to in the interview led to World War II and the economic stagflation of the late 1970s.
And unfortunately, Rickards isn’t alone in his assessment.
MSN Money commented, “The end game for all this . . . is higher inflation combined with economic stagnation,” and The Financial Times reported that “Japan may have fired the first shot.”
The Voice of Russia warned, “Russia is getting ready to defend itself in the global financial war which is going to break out in the near future.” - MoneyNews
