News Note: Jim Rickards to Speak in Dallas on April 30th

Jim Rickards will be speaking in Dallas on Thursday April 30th. Here is a link with information for anyone who may have interest. I will be able to attend and provide a summary of his talk for readers here. 

Jim advised me that the following is what he will cover in the talk:

"The presentation is called "2015 - The Year of Living Dangerously"

I will cover the the inflation/deflation conundrum, Fed policy, systemic instability and the possible role of SDRs and gold in a future international monetary system."

Looks like it will be interesting!
