Howard Davidowitz sees a similarly horrific future [similar to Japan and Zimbabwe] in store for the U.S. He calls America’s current path, rich in deficit spending and weak in currency a “road to nowhere.” Blame is only on the communist/fascist government during the Bush era.

The reason the dollar takes a beating in currency markets is because of the near zero interest rates the Fed has been implementing the past year. Nobody wants to invest in dollars when there is no reward (because of low interest rate returns). The side effect of these low interest rates is that banks can [...]
There are several methods which government uses to cover up the severity of the downturn, here are a couple before delving into the meat of the article by the blogger at Washington’s blog: I recall a history professor of mine in undergrad saying that the way unemployment was measured in the great depression is different [...]
With all of the talk of a collapsing US dollar and the discussions from previously US dollar dependent countries of replacing the reserve currency with another one, perhaps the euro, it makes one wonder whether or not a shooting of this kind was related to his position at the international monetary fund — an organization [...]
