The US is an empire with an inflation tax on the world

A nation-state taxes its own citizens.  An empire taxes other nation-states.  The US has been able to levy an inflation tax on most of the nations around the world, since most nations use US dollars as the reserves backing their currency.  This will not go on forever. When it ends it will be very painful. It seems like it will be ending in the next few years.  The value of the dollar will collapse and the US will get hyperinflation.
