The bestselling author of The Death of Money and Currency Wars reveals the global elites' dark effort to hide a coming catastrophe from investors in The Road to Ruin, now a National Bestseller. A drumbeat is sounding among the global elites. The signs of a worldwide financial meltdown are unmistakable. This time, the elites have an audacious plan to protect themselves from the fallout: hoarding cash now and locking down the global financial system when a crisis hits. Since 2014, international monetary agencies have been issuing warnings to a small group of finance ministers, banks, and private equity funds: the U.S. government’s cowardly choices not to prosecute J.P. Morgan and its ilk, and to bloat the economy with a $4 trillion injection of easy credit, are driving us headlong toward a cliff. As Rickards shows in this frightening, meticulously researched book, governments around the world have no compunction about conspiring against their citizens. They will have stockpiled hard assets when stock exchanges are closed, ATMs shut down, money market funds frozen, asset managers instructed not to sell securities, negative interest rates imposed, and cash withdrawals denied. If you want to plan for the risks ahead, you will need Rickards’s cutting-edge synthesis of behavioral economics, history, and complexity theory. It’s a guidebook to thinking smarter, acting faster, and living with the comfort­ing knowledge that your wealth is secure. The global elites don’t want this book to exist. Their plan to herd us like sheep to the slaughter when a global crisis erupts—and, of course, to maintain their wealth—works only if we remain complacent and unaware. Thanks to The Road to Ruin, we don’t need to be.

Γεννημένος στη Λυών στη Γαλλία, το 1900, ο Antoine de Saint-Exupéry θεωρούσε τον εαυτό του πιλότο πάνω απ’ όλα. Σε διάστημα είκοσι χρόνων, πραγματοποίησε πλήθος αποστολών χαρτογράφησης και ταχυδρομικών πτήσεων για εμπορικές αεροπορικές εταιρείες. Το θέμα των αερομεταφορών αποτέλεσε σταθμό στην επαγγελματική του πορεία και σημείο έναρξης στις λογοτεχνικές του αναζητήσεις. Η συγγραφή του Μικρού Πρίγκιπα ξεκινά κατά τη διάρκεια του Β΄ Παγκοσμίου Πολέμου, όταν ο Saint-Exupéry αναγκάζεται να εγκαταλείψει την αεροπορία, μετά την εισβολή της Γερμανίας στα γαλλικά εδάφη, και να βρει καταφύγιο στη Νέα Υόρκη. Το στοιχείο ακριβώς της νοσταλγίας της παιδικής ηλικίας μέσα στον Μικρό Πρίγκιπα φανερώνει την έντονη επιθυμία του Saint-Exupéry να επιστρέψει στη Γαλλία καθώς και την ελπίδα του αυτό να συμβεί σε καιρό ειρήνης. Η υπόθεση του Μικρού Πρίγκιπα διαδραματίζεται στην έρημο Σαχάρα. To αεροπλάνο τού αφηγητή-πιλότου έχει συντριβεί στην έρημο. Ο ίδιος έχει μείνει με ελάχιστη τροφή και νερό. Προσπαθώντας να εκτιμήσει τις αντικειμενικές δυσκολίες της συντριβής, προσεγγίζεται από τον Μικρό Πρίγκιπα, ένα σοβαρό μικρό ξανθό αγόρι που του ζητά να του ζωγραφίσει ένα αρνάκι. Ο αφηγητής απαντάει θετικά στο αίτημα του περίεργου μικρού που στέκεται απέναντί του. Σύντομα γίνονται φίλοι και ο Μικρός Πρίγκιπας πληροφορεί τον πιλότο, ότι κατάγεται από έναν μικρό πλανήτη, τον αστεροειδή 325, του μιλά για τα μπαομπάμπ και τα ηφαίστεια του τόπου του αλλά και για το μυστηριώδες τριαντάφυλλο που φύτρωσε κάποια στιγμή στον πλανήτη του. Του μιλά ακόμη για τη φιλία τους και για το ψέμα που το έπιασε να του λέει και που στάθηκε αφορμή για το ταξίδι του σε άλλους πλανήτες. Ο μικρός ταξιδιώτης, συχνά σαστισμένος από τη συμπεριφορά των μεγάλων, γίνεται καθολικό και διαχρονικό σύμβολο αθωότητας και αγάπης, υπευθυνότητας και αφοσίωσης. Στο πρόσωπό του αναγνωρίζουμε τη διορατικότητα της παιδικής ηλικίας που στους μεγάλους βρίσκεται σε χειμερία νάρκη. Τα παιδιά αναζητούν την ουσία με την καρδιά, όχι με τα μάτια…

China’s One Belt One Road (OBOR) project was formally introduced by Chinese President Xi-Jinping in 2013. The project, aimed at integrating trade and investment in Eurasia, encompasses over $900 billion in planned investments of infrastructure across Central and South Asia, the Middle East, and Central and Eastern Europe (CEE). A dedicated forum for cooperation with CEE countries has been around now for several years. Originally created in April 2012, ‘the so-called ‘16+1’ framework constitutes a platform which brings heads of state together annually to strengthen dialogue and cooperation between China and the CEE region. Chinese investment interests within the CEE region appear strongly related to privatization opportunities, including large scale infrastructure projects and public procurement opportunities. China’s interest in the CEE region, and the creation of the ‘16+1’ format in particular, also gives rise to concerns that China is attempting to use the region as a medium through which to influence the EU from within. This influence manifests itself primarily in the form of initiatives which aim to persuade and/or pressure CEE countries to adopt favorable policies vis-à-vis China. These concerns stem from two directions. First, there is a fear that some deals concluded with China may not comply with EU rules on public procurement, or other regulations and guidelines. Second, there is a fear of political influencing, which some see exhibited by the EU in avoiding direct references or statements towards China’s legal defeat over the South China Sea after the objection by some member states China’s engagement in the Middle East is arguably the most important component of the OBOR initiative as far as its strategic objectives are concerned. Beijing enunciates a clear interest in developing strong structural ties within the region, particularly with fossil fuel exports being the centerpiece, at least for the initial stage. This also means of course that China will almost inevitably get embroiled in political matters, and thus pose a challenge to the interests of other key players such as Russia, the US and the EU. While China seeks to avoid becoming yet another outside power that meddles in the region’s affairs, it does already show signs of being prepared to become politically engaged. In its engagement in the Middle East, China’s policy is banked on the hopes of being the newish entrant in the region, which absolves it from any imperialist or interventionist baggage. This notwithstanding, regional players, are going to be tempted to play the China card when dealing with the other major (outside) powers, which will effectively pull China into the region’s political vortices. Given OBOR’s unprecedented scale, this new study by The Hague Centre for Strategic Studies (HCSS) investigates the extent to which ‘Belt and Road’ related investments in CEE and the greater Middle East bring sufficient economic weight to both regions that at the same time can be turned into political influence. If this is indeed the case, a pertinent question to ask is whether China is prepared and willing to play a greater political (and/or security) role in CEE and the Middle East in the first place? In addition, the paper seeks to understand whether China’s role can be judged as positive or negative for regional security, as seen from the viewpoint of Europe and the Netherlands.
