    Then they'll claim they reduced the deficit. It's either that, or the Amero or some world currency.
    Or there may be a political push from the govn to replace cash with credits. I've seen this in science fiction movies because theoretically it allows the govn's more control over tax cheating, money printing, currency exchanging, etc. People would resist, unless it's sold as some kind of benefit for the public.

    i say keep your gold, as long as the fed prints, the market will rise, and interest rates are so low, no one can make money from savings, people have moved from gold to the market to ride the wave, but it cannot last, david stockman has raised several warnings.

    I seriously wish that this poll was made public. I feel a need to mock some people.

    You can get 3% on 10yr T-bonds or 6% on junk bonds and mortgage securities. They're drawing money out of safe havens for stocks and bonds creating another booble.

    Yeah, I know the sorry banks don't need our cash because the gov gives it too them plenty cheap. All they have to do is sell their debt to the FED.

    Interest rates when I need them the most probably won't go up in the next 5-10yrs but deflation could increase the value of our savings.

    Hard to say. Gold is trending downward, which really means the dollar is getting stronger as gold is mainly a value-storage device.

    Don't know that we can go on indefinitely like we are, but gov and finance powers will be fighting it the whole way... more likely a long, slow drawn out collapse than a sudden one... but **** happens.

    IN short, frack if I know.

    Not sure why the dollar would collapse. Every other country in the world is printing money and running huge deficits. The question is when will the whole house of cards collapse.
