Retired structure and wild land firefighter. Beginner in the investment game. Traveling the country in a 45 foot motor home, fishing and exploring as I go. Home is where I park it ;-)
I am retired and live in San Francisco’s quaint Sunnyside neighborhood; I live just five short blocks from San Francisco’s only wilderness park: the world renowned Glen Canyon Park!
My investment approach is based on my belief that the US economy is transitioning from a currency based economic system to an earnings/wealth creation based economic system.
I think we are now in the middle stages of this transition: the dollar is still used as global legal tender, but there is vocal group of central bankers advocating changing the global currency system. And indeed, even among our friends, the dollar is losing its luster as a global tender. Our ongoing budget deficits, our ongoing trade deficits, and our ongoing commitment to deficit financing to finance whatever. Our policy wonks decisions makes many conclude that we are no longer in control of our money supply! Can we control expenses? The end will come because we cannot stop printing more money to pay for things;, our expenses must be paid for through revenues, not credit.
The only questions is how and when the end will occur: I think the global currency system will change quickly, with the dollar users simply abandoning the dollar: they will wake up one morning and decide it is no longer prudent to use the dollar as global legal tender. I think there is a strong possibility that the dollar users will abandonment the dollar in panic, like how the Dutch tulip traders abandon their stockpile of tulips, they woke up one fine morning and understood that the tulip is a beautiful flower but not worth the money they paid for it. Panic ensued, with tulip holders trying to sell their tulip stockpile for any price!
I doubt that the dollar abandonment (or the euro, the Yen, or other national currencies used as global legal tender) will occur slowly, simply because the last ones to unload their dollar holding will lose money big time.
So my thinking is that the global currency system will change suddenly, with both domestic and foreign dollar holders taking a loss, with the foreign dollar holders taking the biggest loss.
I pray that the global community will see this currency upheaval as an opportunity to work together to develop a global currency system that is fair and equitable to all players.
