Over the years I have come realize there are some people who are better at forecasting likely future events than others. Jim Rickards is one of those guys. His ability to see future megatrends well before they arrive has been amazing to me. When trying to consider how best to plan for the future, this can be a very helpful skill to access.

To get a feel for his presentation abilities try this speech he did for a group of intelligence community analysts at Johns Hopkins University. The Pentagon hired Jim to forecast potential future scenarios for their planning purposes.
