Will the U.S. Dollar or Euro Collapse and Cause Financial Armageddon?

What event could trigger an unstoppable domino affect leading to a financial meltdown? You may think [that such a possibility is extremly unlikely] but daily we move closer to the real possibility that a major fiat currency such as the US Dollar or the Euro could collapse in the blink of an eye. [Let’s take a look at why and how such an event could unfold.] Words: 499

What will happen next? What will be the net effect of all these things stirred up with a huge dose of uncertainty? It’s like a tinderbox to start a Financial Armageddon.

  • What if Greece cannot keep to the rescue plan imposed on it? What if it defaults? Will a whole country go broke – and then what?
  • What if the Eurozone feels the knock-on effect?
  • What if another bigger Eurozone country requires a bailout?
  • What if the US dollar, as a benchmark for the world, for oil prices, trade, banking, etc. and the most important currency on the planet as we know it, were to collapse? Is it even conceivable?

Take a look at [this video (9:02 minutes)] and decide for yourself. Impossible? Possible? Probable? Highly likely?


This is a timely reminder to the fragility of wealth stored in currency or as a paper promise reliant on the success and existence of a large institution. Wealth needs protection for survival and the acquisition of valuable physical assets that can survive a crisis is the only way.

No wonder Central banks and the biggest fortunes on the planet are stocking up on Gold!
