Interesting view?

So how long can the US hold the world to ransom with the dollar?

Understand, it is intentional. Watch where the ultra rich move to or relocacate assets to. there will be other plausible reasons. Planned Obsolesence on a Grand Scale. Be in the "know" or get out of the market and into personal farming with fertile (non gmo) seed. Do keep a month of food on hand in any case.

The dollar is still viewed by the markets as "the" safe haven currency so expect
