It seems the central bankers/US government/corporate media must be getting nervous because they are now defending the dollar as the reserve currency.
When the Central Bankers start defending the U.S. Dollar as reserve currency, it's time to pay attention. Currency's have a life cycle, they always have since the beginning of time. Unemployment is sluggish, people are under employed and 800,000 people have refinanced their homes at a higher mortgage rate. All of this points to the economy slowing even further.
This is a very insightful report on the Dollar, the economy, and the Central Bankers recent actions.
