The Future of the International Monetary System - Gold, SDRs, or More of the Same?

Upcoming debate - Ann Pettifor and James Rickards

The international monetary system has come close to collapse twice in the past twenty years. The first time was the Asia-Russia-LTCM crisis of 1997 - 1998. The second time was the U.S. mortgage and global liquidity crisis of 2007 - 2008. Another crisis should be expected soon; perhaps in a few years, perhaps tomorrow. In 1998, Wall Street bailed out a hedge fund. In 2008, central banks bailed out Wall Street. In 2018, or even sooner, who will bail out the central banks? Will the IMF's special drawing rights have a role? Will gold return to the monetary scene? Will the dollar remain dominant?  Will the Chinese yuan rise to displace the dollar? Prominent experts Ann Pettifor and James Rickards debate these issues and give the audience a sense of the shape of things to come.

The debate will start at 6.30pm on 30th November. It will take place at the Royal College of Surgeons, 35-43 Lincoln's Inn Fields, London, WC2A 3PE.

This event is free and not ticketed. Places will be allotted on a first come first serve basis.
