    That’s completely wrong. First off, no one buys iranian oil in dollars cause of sanctions banning people from doing so. China’s entire economic model is based on heightened competitiveness from buying dollars to keep the yuan artifically weak, this means that if the dollar dissapears, it has MASSIVE effects for China, almost all negative, stop your jingoistic fearmongering.

    QE definitely did not prevent a deep recession. It just delayed a deep depression.

    “Watch Peter Schiff on the SchiffReport and learn some real economics.”

    Ya, because the best way to learn economics is from a guy who’s not even economist, but who can loudly assert the same old Austrian nonsense.

    US govt bails out banksters, banksters hold onto that cash and instead of loaning it out to small biz entrepreneurs, they go and buy more US govt debt. So that’s why no hyperinflation. There will be NO hyperinflation. There is a massive threat for Hyper DEEEEEflation though.

    Should we destroy the value of dollars saved by ordinary citizens in order to give the commercial bankers a free ride on the stock market roller coaster? Sounds like a good idea. This video is garbage. Inflation created by the Fed is plain and simple robbery of the poorer classes to feed investors and government. Watch Peter Schiff on the SchiffReport and learn some real economics. The Economist is acting like the typical big media company it is: creating confusion and “controversy” to protect

    Oh now I get it, so this is how banks strong-arm governments, now it all makes sense. Let it all collapse then! Down with banks and government, stupid systems!

    If the dollar droos in value the world could care less. Another currency will replace it just like gold has replaced it in trade. Example. Who buys iranian oil using dollars? No one.
    The bric nations wont collapse if dollar falls its the other way around even if china loses investments in the US. That only means they will own more of US and can then build car factories and compete inside the US. Only thing that can stop the dollar collapse and china from taking over is wwiii.
