How Broken Supply Chains, Surging Inflation,
and Political Instability Will Sink the Global Economy

By James Rickards

From the man who predicted the worst economic crisis in US history comes Jim Rickards’ second prediction – the collapse of our global economy.

The supply chain crisis is coming to a head. Today, your favorite products are missing from store shelves, caught in supply chain limbo somewhere in the Pacific Ocean. But what does this supply chain disruption look like six months, or even three years, from now?

According to Jim Rickards, consumer frustration is only the tip of a very large, menacing iceberg that threatens global economic collapse.
