what would happen to the Canadian dollar if the us dollar collapsed? The economies of Canada and China depend heavily on exports to the U.S. If the U.S. dollar collapsed, then the U.S. economy would collapse, which would cause the economies of China and Canada to collapse, which would cause the Canadian dollar to collapse.
Does anyone else fear the impending dollar collapse and chaos that will ensue? I think that based on how much we’ve spent already the collapse of the dollar collapse is inevitable. It happened terribly in the former confederate states of America based on less printing of money than we are now. It is also happening right in Zimbabwe. I think people need to really pay attention to this. We will be fearing for our lives in a year or so…No, not in the least.
QHow do you think the FED would react to a dollar collapse?? A I have a simulation activity for my International Political Economy course tomorrow in which we will simulate an economic crisis such as a dollar collapse. I have been given the position of FED so i have big shoes to fill. Any ideas are greatly appreciated. I have a general idea of what they would do- such as raise the interest rate and reduce the money supply, but i will take all the advice i can get…Thanks! Dollar collapse would not be fixed by the fed the people would have to put up with Hyperinflation. See Germany in late 30’s
Impending dollar collapse? Does anyone else have a bad feeling about the economy and where it is headed right now? I know the government is telling us that the economy is getting better, but I still have some doubts. I feel the stock market is just another bubble about to collapse into another financial meltdown. What do you think about the safety of the American dollar? Check out the zeitgeist movie. The second one is pretty interesting. I just want to know, at what point did the pursuit of happiness turned into the pursuit of money?
Is the price of gold rising or is the dollar collapsing? Since WWII the US Dollar has been the international currency of choice, to back all world currency. But now, internationals are dumping dollars, and replacing with gold. India took a huge loss on dollars, just to buy 200 metric tons of gold. Has the printing and spending finally caught up to our collapsing economy? I am afraid so and the end is sooner than you think.
Altogether, foreign countries own $2.4 trillion in U.S. Treasuries. If China, Japan or other major holders begin selling a lot of Treasuries on the secondary market, it could start a panic amongst all sellers, causing a dollar collapse.
Demand for Treasuries will fall, which will cause interest rates to rise. Imports will become relatively expensive, which will spur inflation. Money previously invested in dollars will go to gold, real estate and other commodities, further spurring inflation. High interest rates will make homes even more expensive.
However, U.S. exports will be dirt cheap, helping the economy. Unfortunately, the high interest rates will prevent businesses from adding capacity. That could lead to unemployment, a recession and stagflation.
Is anyone else worried about the collapse of the US dollar? Communist China’s not willing to lend any more money because of our fiscal irresponsibility (a BAD investment for them, as they will NEVER get paid back). Would we go to the IMF begging for money? and be forced to comply with international law and give up our sovereignty? Makes you wonder if flooding the market with funny money and all this spending is an orchestrated collapse of the US. Not bothering with links, as you just cannot reason with Liberal lefties. Not a republican and definitely not a democrat. In order to further a North American Union and get one step closer to their one world government, they needed to reduce the value of the dollar close to where the peso is. Watch, by 2025, we’ll be hearing about the Amero again, because the dollar will be next to worthless. People aren’t paying attention…the only reason the dollar has any value after coming off the gold standard was because oil was sold in dollars. There is an international movement to sell oil in Euros or some other currency now…as soon as the dollar is dropped from oil sales, that’s all she wrote! China is diversifying in copper, gold and real estate to hedge against the fall of the dollar. Their trillions won’t be so much when we hit 1 million percent inflation (compared to Yugoslavia who had 5 quadrillion percent inflation!)
When will the US dollar collapse? Just a YouTube video I was watching hat FEMA and a Martial Law will be done once the US dollar is collapsed. the us dollar will collapse when we’ve built a building made of money and demolish it. I understand that with collapse of dollar and hyperinflation there would be deflation in other world currencies. What would be the impact of that on rupee and gold and silver? Expect the answer as per free market Austrian economics. If the dollar weakens two things can happen. Either gold goes up or it goes down for Indians. If the dollar becomes 35 rupees to a dollar (from about 48 or 49 right now) and gold just goes up 10 percent in dollar terms then gold will actually become cheaper for us in India. However, if dollar weakens by 10 percent and goes to about 44 or 45 rupees to the dollar and the price of gold in dollar terms goes up by more than 12 percent then the price of gold will actually go up in India. Both are possible scenarios but it looks likely that if the dollar devalues, we may actually see gold prices going up in India. Of course, the quantum of devaluation and the demand for gold in India will determine the price and by how much it goes up.
