'Currency Wars' author Jim Rickards to speak at CMRE meeting in NYC Oct. 18
Geopolitical analyst, hedge fund manager, and "Currency Wars" author James G. Rickards, who spoke at GATA's Gold Rush 2011 conference in London last year, will be among the speakers at the fall meeting of the Committee for Monetary Research and Education, to be held Thursday, October 18, at the Union League Club in New York.
Also speaking will be:
-- The economist Alex J. Pollock of the American Enterprise Institute.
-- The economist Walker Todd of the American Institute for Economic Research, also a director of CMRE.
-- Myrmikan Capital founder Dan Oliver.
-- CMRE Director Howard Segermark.
-- Richard Rahn of the Cato Institute.
-- And professional trader and market commentator Victor Sperandeo.
Courtesy of the American Numismatic Association, the meeting will include a display of ancient coins -- and maybe a late entry, a euro, which would pair nicely with a U.S. silver dollar.
The Union League Club is a beautiful, dignified, and comfortable old place just a few blocks south of Grand Central Station, within easy walking distance, and dinner there is always excellent.
Admission will be $175 for CMRE members and their spouses, $185 for others.
Your secretary/treasurer plans to attend and sure would like to see some GATA supporters there.
