(TRUNEWS) Statistical analyst Jim Willie says the recent moves by the rising Eurasian Trade Zone have set the stage for a historic toppling of the Anglo-American petrodollar by July.
Willie’s statements were made during an exclusive interview with Rick Wiles of TRUNEWS on Tuesday, while discussing the significance and meaning of a series of major geopolitical events over the past 3 months from China, Russia, Saudi Arabia, and the United States.
In the beginning of the interview, Willie said one of his veteran sources informed him that government analysts are predicting major economic turmoil to begin in the June/July timeframe. Willie noted that if he had to guess, the July 4th holiday weekend would be the flashpoint for the unraveling of this crisis. Willie said it would be prudent for Americans to stop all investments; and begin hoarding cash, food, and water to weather this impending financial super storm.
As I predicted last month in “We Have Just Witnessed The Last Gasp Of The Global Economy,” severe volatility is now returning to global markets after the pre-game 10 percent drop in equities in October hinted at what was to come….
This is not to say that individual central banks and even currencies are not expendable in the grand scheme of things. In fact, the long-term goal of globalists has been to consolidate all currency systems and central banks under the outward control of the International Monetary Fund and the Bank Of International Settlements, as I outlined in “The Economic Endgame Explained.”
That particular article was only a summary of a dangerous trend I have been concerned about for years; namely the strategy by international financiers to create a dollar-collapse scenario that will be blamed on prepositioned scapegoats. I have no idea what form these scapegoats will take – there are simply too many possible triggers for fiscal calamity. What I do know, though, is the goal of the endgame: to remove the dollar’s world reserve status and to pressure the American people into conforming or even begging for centralized administration of our economy by the IMF.

The eventual death of the U.S. Dollar is a given and not up for debate. This will, however, sound alien and come as a shock to most living in the west who continue to go on living while turning a blind eye to current events.
Willem Middelkoop and Terence van der Hout of the Netherlands-based Commodity Discovery Fund believe that when the world’s reserve currency is reset away from the U.S. dollar in the next decade, gold prices will rise and mining equities will follow. Van der Hout and Middelkoop tell The Gold Report that by focusing on producers, near-producers ,and turnaround stories, they plan to capitalize on the opportunities in North America, Africa and beyond.
The Gold Report: Willem, your first book predicted the collapse of the global financial system a year before the 2008 fall of Lehman Bros. In your new book “The Big Reset: War on Gold and the Financial Endgame,” you’re predicting the demise of the dollar as the reserve currency by 2020. You said it can occur as a carefully planned event or as the result of a crisis. What would these two scenarios look like?
Willem Middelkoop: Authorities always prefer to act within a well-planned scenario. The U.S. and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) understand that the U.S. dollar has to be replaced one day. It could be 2020. It could be 2018. It could be 2023. It has to be replaced by another anchor to support the worldwide monetary system. Continue reading
The Fed will very likely never ‘taper’. If so, there will be a bond sell off which would quickly spiral out of control. Quantitative easing, or QE, will be permanent until it eventually causes a collapse.
The Fed not tapering is also supported by Egon von Greyerz, the founder of Matterhorn Asset Management in Switzerland, in an interview just two days ago.
The ‘day of reckoning’ is indeed coming. The question is not if, but when.
On Sept. 15, Canadian billionaire Ned Goodman spoke at the Cambridge House regarding the U.S. dollar, and the state of the Western economies. In his nearly eight minute speech, the 75 year old CEO of Dundee Capital Markets and Chancellor of Brock University painted a picture of the upcoming change in reserve currency control by the U.S., and how the dollar will soon be replaced as nations around the world rush to get rid of their currency reserves.
Ned Goodman: In my view, the dollar is about to become dethroned as the world’s de facto currency. I’ll tell you how I came to that conclusion so quickly… the new President of China, Xi Jinping, his first visit on the day of his becoming President, was at his request to meet with Mr. Putin. And he immediately made a deal with Mr. Putin to get all the oil that he needs, which he can buy in Renminbi.
We’re headed to a period of stagflation, maybe serious inflation, but stagflation for sure, and the United States will be losing the privilege to print at its will, the world’s reserve currency. A period that’s going to be very inflationary, and I can tell you that before that happens, it is likely that it is going to get quite ugly. – Ned Goodman, Cambridge House Continue reading
Most people don’t even realize we have an actual war being fought — one that has been ongoing for over a decade. Most people also believe that our economic downturn is part of the usual economic cycle and will return to normal. This couldn’t be farther from the truth. Fact of the matter is, the US Dollar’s days are numbered and America is doing very little to defend it.
In late 2008, when the U.S. Treasury bond seemed the safest investment in the world and the dollar once again reigned supreme as a safe haven, we predicted a Phase Three attack. At the time, we said that the way things would play out, so-called experts would say that it was just a natural and inevitable result of global events. Never mind that these would be the same people who dismissed the concern only a short while earlier. We have documented all of this repeatedly in our final report for DoD (Economic Warfare: Risks and Responses published in June 2009), our book Secret Weapon (www.secretweapon.org) and in this Blog. We explained well in advance that the BRIC nations would call for the end of the dollar as reserve currency, piling on to similar expressions from the IMF and UN. We stated without hesitation that the US Treasury would lose Triple-A status even as Timothy Geithner said it could never happen.
Now, the alarm bells are ringing louder than ever before. But, the policymakers are ignoring the handwriting on the wall, lulled into complacency by lower interest rates paid by our Treasury. Let’s be clear. This is not an “all clear.” Just today, we received some powerful research by Citigroup titled The “Frozen Hell” of a High Deficit, Low Rate Environment. Here are some of the insights that support our concerns:
“As was the case for a decade in Greece, low government bond yields delayed recognition of a problem. The effects on investment spending, employment and income never produced are more difficult to measure than any obvious interest rate spike related to large deficit
Greece’s budget and external imbalances went undisciplined by markets for a full decade. For how long could the U.S.?”
