- Eric King interviews Jim Rickards – receives threat from swaps ‘regulator’ ISDA after his BBC interview
When I was in London a few months ago – participating in the Cheviot Hard Money conference – the one question I got more than any other was, ‘Who is Jim Rickards and how can he say the things that he says.’ A) I was surprised by this – because I didn’t realize how widely Jim is listened to and B) I had been asking myself the same question since Rickards started popping up on Eric King’s show and other outlets. Jim Rickards – his background negotiating on behalf of the government for the LTCM bailout and the Iran hostage crisis of 1979 – gives him extremely high credibility when talking about issues pertaining to banks and (lack of) regulations. Furthermore, cross-checking his comments against my own knowledge and experience of the inner workings of banks and brokerages, I started to look forward to any new Jim Rickards interview that comes out – because, in my opinion, his analysis is virtually unimpeachable and extraordinarily insightful. Now, with this new interview where he names names – my unanswered questions about Jim Rickards are now being answered. Jim Rickards is taking on the banksters directly and starting to blow the whistle in a ‘soft’ way in his inimitable style, speaking parenthetically about fraud and criminality taking place in banks and brokerages around the world. His tone is soft and measured, his comments pack a wallop. And the more you know, the bigger these bombshells resonate.
WHO ON THIS LIST THREATENED JIM RICKARDS? SEND ME ANY INFORMATION YOU MIGHT HAVE ON THIS. THE SLA SHOULD TAKE NOTE: SWAP DEALERS ASSIST BANKS LIKE JPM IN HIDING THEIR NAKED SHORTS ON SILVER. BY EXPOSING THE TYRANT ON THIS LIST – WE TAKE A STEP CLOSER TO TRUE PRICE DISCOVERY ON SILVER (AND GOLD).
