    Or do you think it will?

    Considering 6 of the 12 largest world economies no longer need / use it as a reserve currency.

    Simple answer - not in my lifetime, and perhaps never.

    Things are trending badly, but its not like we've hit a point of no return. If the dollar tanks, I believe it'll be because the entire global economy tanks.

    Gold is my canary in the dollar coalmine, if it hit $2500/ounce tomorrow I would say the dollar is dead within a year. But the recent hit it took suggests to me that we are regaining confidence in the dollar.

    I hope you are right. I just don't think creating a trillion a year to fuel continued over spending can go on much longer. Combined that will impossible to balance social programs in the 10-20-30 year future and I can't see how it continues. China is on a fast course / track to insert its currency into the dollars reserve currency status, and the UN has already prepared a potentially digital only currency just for that purpose. I don't believe its the next year, but I think failure of the dollar is inevitable.

    Intriguing. It's been reported the US Fed Reserve naked short sold Gold just 3 days before its collapse. If true it made $40 billion on the reported "deal.". There are some saying this was done in response to three countries expanding their gold reserves (China, Russia and Brazil)? The dollars strength is intriguing. I'm curious if it's really strong or just better than the Euro and Yen at the moment?

    When you consider how many currencies are pegged to the USD, I should hope either "never" or "not for a looooooooong time".

    I think you should have at least a passing knowledge of economics to vote in this thread. There are too many idiots with zero fiscal knowledge or education that will say "DOLLAR GOIN DOWN SOON LMAO OMG MAD MAX TIME".

    I think the dollar will eventually lose reserve status (10-20yrs) to a basket of currencies and go up or down but it won't collapse.

    I expect a new dollar, like new francs, new marks, new pesos, to be issued within next 20 years. The government will declare exchange rate old for new, 100 to one.


    Then they'll claim they reduced the deficit. It's either that, or the Amero or some world currency.
