The economic debacle so closely follows what happened in pre-WWII Germany that it is downright scary. Just as the German Mark became scorned, so will the US dollar as it will lose its place as the world's reserve currency and then all hell will break loose. Double, perhaps triple, digit inflation will take over. At first it will be the "takers" that become destitute followed by the "makers" as salaries cannot possibly keep up with inflation. What a wonderful gift to leave to our grandchildren.
