I read somewhere that he later became the whistleblower on the LTCM bailout, but he was their general counsel, yikes:
In 1981, Rickards was involved in the Iran hostage crisis. As general counsel for the hedge fund Long-Term Capital Management (LTCM), he was the principal negotiator in the 1998 bailout of LTCM by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York.
all in all though, he's an econ genius. And I see him more as a well heeled player for his geopolitical/econ acumen, than say a Ruling Class' 'scheme-r.' So far, his works and public commentary have been excellent, prescient, and highly informative:
my only concern with his new book Currency Wars, since the book originated out of his dealings with DoD wargames, is that the Mil.Ind.Complex would actually use Jim's new book as a guidebook, not a prescient warning...
