1. Banks hoarding the money
2. The yen carry trade. Big investors borrow yen at a low rate. They convert it to dollars to buy U.S. Treasuries and profit from the spread. The result is an increase in demand for dollars.
3. The China carry trade (for lack of a better term). What I mean is that big investors borrow dollars at a low rate and invest in Chinese infrastructure projects and property and profit on the spread. The result is an increase in demand for dollars. The same happens with other emerging markets as well.

What some really want to do is that in the guise of limiting government power, they want to make it such that they can continue to cheat, rob, steal, and abuse others. Yep, that crowd doesn't want the government to regulate banks so that they can be free to take people's money, invest it in ways that enrich themselves personally and then burn the people whose money that they have invested in their crooked schemes. Yep, that crowd does not want the government to regulate how much they can pollute the environment such that they can be free to enrich themselves by totally disregarding the environmental destruction that their pollution produces. Yep, that crowd doesn't want the government to say you have to pay workers a living wage so that they can be free to exploit workers to the maximum extent possible so that they can enrich themselves by the labor of others. Yep, that crowd does not want the government to say you cannot abuse employees so that they can be free to do things like taking advantage of women by demanding sexual favors in return for career advancement.
Yep, such people are the real sissies because they can't make it the right way, rather all that they have are their crooked schemes and deceit.
