    When the dollar crashes, setting off a spireling out of control chain of events, what

    When foreigners star to panic and dump the dollar, the dollar crashes, setting off a spireling out of control chain of events, like gasoline being $8 a gallon, and low value compact cars costing $100,000, what are you going to say?

    The world would be ****ed. You're talking about a collapse of the global financial/economic system.

    Edit: It won't just be higher priced goods in America

    When is this suppose to happen? 2069? For you, of course, we'll offer our low value compact car for $99,999.99!

    that was pretty good forecasting
    if past is prelude, then that is the equivalent of buying a $12,000 car today

    If the dollar collapses that would mean the Euro would strengthen, replacing the dollar as world reserve currency. the Yuan won't be trustworthy cause China will just devalue their currency even more even if there's nothing to peg it to, or they'll just peg it to the Euro.

    Of course if the Euro strengthens, then the euro-zone trade deficit will skyrocket. Also, China exports to the US will start to accumulate on their docks cause Americans won't be able to buy them, so they'll dump it on Eurozone/Canada/Australia/1st world countries/etc, accelerating the Euro-zone trade deficit.

    I'm guessing Americans will be too poor to fill their tanks which would put a damper on the oil price inflation, just trying to be conservative.

    Re: When the dollar crashes, setting off a spireling out of control chain of events,

    I chose the Gov't spent too much, but that must be qualified. The Korporations manipulated the gov't to spend $700 billion per year on Military Offense/defense. The Korporations manipulated to prevent competition in their monopolies by small and local entrepreneurs by controlling all regulatory authorities to their own adavantage, think NRC, SEC, IRS, ad infinitum. The Unions created uncompetitive wage scales. All unions, public and private, demanded excessive retirement and healthcare packages. The Political class funded itself as gratuitously as royalty. Bankers created and moved paper, but not jobs. Plenty of blame to go around, but it all is gov't approved, so noone else can be blamed.
