One piece I don’t agree with in this short film is when they say nothing backs the U.S. currency. Most people make this argument given we are no longer tied to the gold standard, but the truth of the matter is that since the USD is used as the world-wide currency to purchase oil and commodities (reserve currency status), there will always be demand for our currency. If, however, should the USD lose its reserve status (because our debt is out of control) the dollar could collapse. Although there are many aspects of this short firm that I feel hit the truth, there are other pieces where I remain skeptical. Often fear is promoted with an end-game in mind. There are those out there who are trying to stir up fear to get people to buy precious metals and of course they are the same corrupt spirits that are targeted in the above film. We must always look upon each point of view with skepticism, including our own.
