Really, when you think about the demise of the US Dollar, there is little surprise.
I believe, unfortunately, that we are in the latest stages of USA dominance in world affairs. We have the largest and most powerful military but that's about it. And that might not last.
No empire in world history dominated forever.I would rather live my life as if there is a God and die
to find out there isn't, than live my life as if there
isn't and die to find out there is.
