"All Currencies Will See Catastrophic Drop"

Charles Hugh Smith – All Currencies Will See Catastrophic Drop

Greg Hunter

Financial writer Charles Hugh Smith sees one very big problem coming at us, and that is a dramatic loss in buying power of the U.S. dollar, but it’s not just the dollar.  

According to Smith, “All these currencies, there is nothing backing the currencies except the government’s force.  That’s the yen, the euro, the dollar and the Chinese yuan.  

They are all going to have a catastrophic drop against real assets because they are all based on too much leverage, too much debt, too much money being pumped into the financial system that ends up in unproductive speculation.  

You can’t grow your debt at six times the rate of your economy.  In other words, if you are creating $6, $8 or $10 of debt to eke out $1 of low productivity growth, you are dooming your currency, and all currencies are doing the same thing.  

All the currencies are going to take a big drop at some point . . . relative to real stuff.  Real stuff is commodities we need:  water, grains, food, oil, natural gas and, of course, precious metals.  

Everybody knows they have been money for 5,000 years, and I personally feel there is a role for crypto currencies.”

  1. The functioning of the technology is encapsulated and the users do not need to know about it in detail. The information stored in block chain is very similar to the data stored in Google spread sheets. The advantage of using this technology is that it is transparent, incorruptible, decentralized and very much secure. educational news
