What is the deal with our nations money
From all the available currencies, The United States Dollar will be the last to collapse on the face of the Earth.
The United States Economy is as well the last to collapse on the face of the Earth.
This is simply because it will not be let to happen.
I wonder what will really happen?

1861 US paper currency was created by U.S. Treasury Secretary Salmon Chase.
1913 the Federal Reserve was created.
March 3, 1933 Pres. Roosevelt closed the banks as a result of the run on gold.
July 22, 1944 the Bretton Woods agreement central banks had to maintain fixed exchange rates between their currencies and the dollar.
1960 the U.S. held $19.4 billion in gold, enough to cover the $18.7 billion in foreign dollars outstanding.
1970, the U.S. only held $14.5 billion in gold against foreign dollar holdings of $45.7 billion
August 15, 1971 Pres. Nixon changed the dollar/gold relationship to $38 per ounce, and the Fed stopped redeeming dollars with gold.
1973 The U.S. government re-priced gold to $42 per ounce, and then decoupled the value of the dollar from gold altogether. The price of gold quickly shot up to $120 per ounce in the free market.
1973 Nixon and King Faisal of Saudi Arabia created the petrodollar system.

Program topic update: Immigration will likely lead today's (July 11th) show on BlogTalkRadio, and we'll highlight past action by Barack Obama that played a key part in putting the current border crisis in motion.
We'll also note the inconsistency of the mainstream media when it comes to analyzing the pervasive violence in countries to the south of our southern border.
The other subjects outlooked will come later in the program.
We noticed something this week: Even MSM now seems skeptical over touted signs of booming economic trends. But with stock narkets and some businesses now trading at record high levels, some now question whether we're actually in a bubble.
There's another possiblity no one mentions. All the cheery record high indices may simply reveal how badly currencies like the dollar have eroded. And governments still swear there's no inflation.
Meanwhile, the crushing waves of immigrants continue along the southern U.S. border. President Obama hasn't visited the border yet, but he's come close. He's holding fundraisers in Texas with supporters who oppose tighter border security and champion additional 'rights' for immigrants.

Sacred Economics: Money, Gifts, and Society in the Age of Transition with Charles Eisenstein
In his book, Sacred Economics: Money, Gift, and Society in the Age of Transition, Eisenstein traces the history of money from ancient gift economies to modern capitalism, revealing how the money system has contributed to alienation, competition, and scarcity, destroyed community, and necessitated endless growth. Today, these trends have reached their extreme, but in the wake of their collapse, Eisenstein says, we may find great opportunity to transition to a more connected, ecological, and sustainable way of being.
In this episode, Sandie and Charles Eisenstein discuss:
*The history and corruption of “money”
*How our money system will have to change—and is already changing—to embody this transition.
*The New Economics—negative-interest currencies, local currencies, resource-based economics, gift economies, and the restoration of the commons
*How those concerned with “right livelihood” can live according to their ideals in a world seemingly ruled by money
*What you can do to help create a new vision for a new future and make the world a better place
