Here's Why The Dollar May Not Have Many Years Left

The US dollar has been around for a long time.

But will it last much longer?

While the dollar has been in existence for over 200 years, the current fiat version -- which isn't backed by any hard collateral like the gold and silver it once was prior to 1971 -- is only now just turning 50 years old.

And in the five decades since making its debut, our current fiat dollar has lost 85% of its purchasing power.

That's been the result of rampant inflation caused by the US government's reckless policies, huge debt build-up, and massive deficit spending.

At our current rate, how much longer until folks start rejecting the US dollar for alternatives that hold their purchasing power better?

I tackle that in today's video, assisted by the expert brainpower of John Rubino, Lyn Alden and Stephanie Pomboy.
