Should you prepare for the economy to tank? Jim Rickards thinks so -- and explains why.

America's economy is doing pretty well these days. Considering what might happen in the event that it collapses is likely among the last things most wish to do. Wall Street veteran Jim Rickards believes that the time is now to prepare for what happens when the good years draw to a close. His latest book, the bestseller 'Aftermath: Seven Secrets of Wealth Preservation in the Coming Chaos,' details what he believes will transpire as a result of the next global economic meltdown, as well as what ordinary folks can do to shield themselves from fiscal ruination. Rickards explains the key points of 'Aftermath' on this episode of 'Cotto/Gottfried.'
