The Collapse of the US Bubble Economy & What It Means for Investors

The economic collapse that Peter Schiff had long foretold has finally come to pass. The stock markets have plunged, the housing market has collapsed, and the government’s budget is soaring out of control. The Federal Reserve is printing money by the trillions in a vain effort to stabilize the situation. Amidst all the carnage, investors and economists still do not understand the root cause of the problem and are therefore proposing reckless solutions. Because so few understand fundamental economic principles, it should not come as a surprise that many investors cannot see the inevitable result of Washington’s response to the crisis. In particular, the US dollar, which has paradoxically benefitted from a “flight to safety” of late, is poised to become a nearly worthless currency. All investors need to be cognizant of this possibility as they look to protect their wealth for themselves and future generations.
