To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I bought this book after seeing James Rickards on Youtube, however, the majority of the book is just a load of noise with very few points made. For example he mentions a meeting that he attends, but instead of informing about this meeting he describes in detail the hotel in which the meeting was help, as I said most of this is noise. This is probably the worst book I have picked up in many years and can't recommend.
papiergeld ist bloß ein politisches tauschmittel .solange die politik 50% ok ist, ist auch das papiergeld 40% ok! wenn aber für privates geld verborgen nichts bezahlt wird dann ist politik am rande einer abwertung angelangt für das papiergeld!
I am currently half way through this book and unlike "The Death of Money" which had me hooked from the start, Aftermath has personally been a difficult read for me. Jim constantly uses long long stories from his life to relate to what is going on or may happen. I found myself skipping multiple pages to get to the point. I have the utmost respect for Jim and I currently receive his paid newsletters and listen to all his interviews but this so far has not been what I expected. I give it 2.5 Stars
Written to inform with an academic analysis of Economics, Finance, Psychology, and History in such a way the common man can understand, relate, learn from, and apply. More importantly, Rickards offers not just an academic perspective but also applies his models from his significant financial experiences. What adds to my fascination is how his academic theory and professional financial work are coupled with his unique direct experiences applying his financial knowledge within the CIA.... he has private privileged information ;) Very few times did I get bord of reading Aftermath, and I love how he summarizes big picture ideas at the end of chapters ensuring readers don't miss salient points. I'll be reading his new book out in 2021.
BTW... here is a barometer of how good his books are, none are in my public library. Nobody wants to give his books up.
interessant, aber langatmig, der Autor hätte sich mehr Zeit nehmen sollen, sich kurz zu fassen, das erste Kapitel beschreibt auf über 50 Seiten, was für ein toller Hecht der Autor ist und wie viele wichtige Leute er kennt. Und selbstverständlich ja , langfristig betrachtet wird die Welt untergehen.
