NEW: The Modern Monetary Theory Report
Modern Monetary Theory (MMT) is a controversial and untested economic theory that argues governments should NOT be concerned about running up debt. Under this school of thought, deficits are easily surmountable by flipping on the money printer. If inflation heats up, MMT’s solution is to increase taxes to curb private-sector spending.
If that sounds fanciful, that’s because it is! MMT presupposes a bottomless well of cash without paying much attention to fundamental economic factors such as inflation, interest rates, resource limitations, long-term debt, or fiscal sustainability. That’s why we’ve dubbed our Modern Monetary Theory Report “Socialist Economics Guide for Dummies” because of MMT’s alarming similarities to the economic policies of failed socialist states. Unfortunately, the American people have been unwitting subjects in the world’s largest and most unsuccessful MMT experiment.
The US’ Only Defense Against MMT
The only reason the US has survived this long under blatantly flawed fiscal policies is the dollar’s position as the world reserve currency. Since the British pound fell out of favor following consecutive World Wars, USD has been the global economy’s preferred currency. The overwhelming majority of nations choose to conduct trade, hold reserves, and base their economies on the mighty dollar. This status has shielded the US economy, American investors, and our financial czars from the failures of MMT. However, the dollar’s dominance is facing its greatest threat yet.
De-Dollarization & Rising Alternatives
Over the past few years, the dollar’s reputation as a trustworthy, stable, and predictable asset has been severely diminished. The inevitable failures of MMT, such as sky-high debt, rampant inflation, and banking crises, have overtaken the US economy, resulting in a global lack of confidence in the dollar. The process of de-dollarization is in full swing as countries – allies and enemies alike – decouple from the greenback.
The resulting void has ushered in a currency clash as dollar alternatives fight for the coveted position as the world reserve currency.
- The Chinese are pushing for the petroyuan.
- BRICS nations are discussing a gold-backed BRICS currency.
- Central banks are scooping up gold at record rates.
Regardless of where the future of currency goes, the US dollar’s role has never been more in question.
