The American economy has a lot of momentum, but the unhinged trade policies for President Donald Trump could trigger a U.S. dollar collapse in 2017.

From the beginning you stated years ago that there was going to be a real estate bubble and many people ignored you including me so I'll be humble about it so what would begin with dad specific fact what prompted you back then to predict that well I mean I understood the offensive said policy i knew that real estate in particular was particularly sensitive to interest rates because most people when they buy a house they say by the monthly payment they buy the mortgage payment and so as interest rates were depressed it kept more is rates low US housing prices rising and then a lot of people were taking advantage of adjustable rate mortgages which were particularly inexpensive and a lot of more interest only where people weren't even making payments of friends well they just paid the interest and when the interest was extremely low thanks to the Fed people were able to buy much larger houses are much more expensive houses then they would ordinarily be able to afford and so I saw this and I saw the impact that rising real estate prices was having on the economy on consumption on the ability of people to transform their real-estate riches into spendable cash by refinancing and turning their homes into ATM machines and I saw the lending standards going out the window and you know the proliferation of no doc no downpayment mortgages where people could buy houses without any money yeah in fact you're so certain security circumstances where you can get cashback you can actually buy a house and get money I so it was it was really a crazy time and it was amazing how few people could see what the government was doing.
Over the last few days, there has been a number of articles in the media about the steady decline of the $US against the Euro. While many economists have forecasted the possiblity of the dollar declining against the Euro for sometime, most do not comprehend the significance of this. Some believe that the decline of the dollar against the currencies of American's trading partners will help correct the USA's trade deficit, and the dollar will stop falling when the trade imbalance is corrected. However, the evidence is that the opposite is happening – the $US has declined 40% against the Euro over the last 2 years, and during this time America's trade deficit has continues to deteriorate.
There is now nothing the USA can do to prevent the collapse of its currency, and its economy. It has no reserves to support its value, and has the most indebted country in the world, is dependant of the credit from America's former enemies. Over the last couple of days, both Russia and China have said they will be switching their considerable dollar reserves into Euro. This will only hasten the lack of confidence in the dollar, creating a global lack of confidence in the currency, and setting into free-fall. It will soon bring about the total collapse of the dollar, and the American economy.
The collapse of the dollar will throw the world into a global depression. Those nations with large external debts will not be able to trade sufficiently to earn the income to service their debts, and will slide into bankruptcy.
