‘END OF THE PETRODOLLAR’
This is America’s ‘Economic’ Achilles Heel
FTMDaily.com – When I first began warning about the eventual fallout of the petrodollar system back in 2006-2007, I had very few peers who shared my concerns. But over the last couple of years, I have been grateful to see the rise of many similar voices warning about the impending dangers associated with America’s unsustainable dependence upon the current “oil for dollars” arrangement. (In many ways, the petrodollar system is the American economy’s vulnerable “achilles heel.”)
This morning, I was pleased to be sent an article from Casey Research entitled: The Colder War and the End of the Petrodollar. It was written by their energy investment specialist, Martin Katusa. I encourage you to read it as it contains some valuable insights into the current state of America’s crumbling dollar demand.
You can read the article here.
Additionally, if you have never read our four-part article series on the coming collapse of the petrodollar system, you read it here. You can also check out the above video in which I explain the petrodollar system in extremely simple terms.
Its true… The petrodollar system is crumbling. And its ultimate demise will catch most Americans off-guard. Don’t be one of them.
