    No, that would be you. Oil's price rises or falls as the value of the dollar on the world's markets varies, not the other way around...

    As compared to what? What would a personal computer have cost in 1913? What would a washer and dryer have cost in 1913? You're attempting to make comparisons that are non-existent...

    I guess in a way you're correct. But you have to affix it's value to something. As such, the value of the U.S. dollar has been closely affixed to oil since it is the one commodity countries seek as a primary energy source. And as long as the price of oil remains high, so shall the value of the U.S. dollar.

    The dollar's value is solely dependent on the amount in circulation versus the productive output of our economy. Oil's value is tied to the dollar, not the other way around...

    When in American history have citizens refused to accept paper currency when selling something?
    After the war of northern aggression, Confederate dollars were considered worthless, and nobody would trade for them. Today, a Confederate dollar bill, backed by a defunct government is worth more than a USA dollar bill. As a collectors item, of course. Who knew!

    Why was Confederate money worthless in 1866? Because there was no government that supported the statement printed on the bills.

    Many items that were thought to be worthless at the moment of their creation, have gained value owing to their present day rarity - and societal needs, that is, certain folks today revere the past and see a crumpled bit of paper or a bit of stone or plastic as a concrete item of memory and are willing to pay for such objects.

    For instance: Apple-1 Computer Fetches $671,000 At Auction : All Tech Considered : NPR
    “And I have no doubt that every new example will succeed, as every past one has done, in shewing that religion & Govt will both exist in greater purity, the less they are mixed together.”
    ~ James Madison, letter to Edward Livingston, July 10, 1822

    And do YOU think the US government would survive the collapse of the dollar?

    Let's speculate. Federal employees will continue to report to offices without a salary? Incredible!
    Rich politicians will love power more than money, so remain in Washington to face mobs of angry folks demanding their benefits? Incredible.
    Need I go on?
    (no smiley. Nothing FUNNY in this)
