The United States Dollar

"I doubt it was the only reason, but it may well have played a significant role in our motivation to wage war." - Ron Paul

A friend of mine tonight brought up the declining dollar. This is the first time I'd heard someone other than myself, and a few others mention it. That, to me, suggests that the collapse of the dollar may be upon us. I am by no means a financial expert, however, I am someone that follows the news. It doesn't take a financial expert to see what is happening to the U.S. Dollar. I don't know what to say other than hope for the best, and expect the worst.

And that takes away some of the greatness of what the market did at the end of this week.

But when does this happen? And btw, when was this film produced? I have been hearing this and watching these documentaries for a while now. And some of them look pretty old. At this time, the national debt is over 8 trillion dollars. This guy quotes it at 5 trillion. So this was made what, like 3 weeks ago? http://www.babylontoday.com/national_debt_clock.htm

No idea. All I know is that it is "the" documentary about the history of money.

That antional debt clock I linked to seems a bit panicky. They say it's what? A billion a day? Well, I opened it 10 hours ago, and it's counted off 3 billion so far.
