HSBC Bids Farewell to Dollar Supremacy

Posted in

The London Telegraph is running a story about how the US dollar is looking alot like the British pound after WWI.

A monetary policy of near zero rates – further juiced by quantitative easing –
is completely incompatible with circumstances in most of Asia, the Middle
East, Latin America, and Africa. Divorce is inevitable. The US is expected
to hold rates near zero through 2010 to tackle its own crisis.

Definitely worth a read. It looks like its only a matter of time before an exodus out of the US dollar starts occurring. Start prepping your wheelbarrows now.
