So in 1971 the world officially disconnected from gold. This followed by a massive increase in money supply and therefore price inflation. 50 years later and i feel we might see the world disconnect from the US dollar as the reserve/trading currency. If so i would imagine we will again see a massive increase in the money supply and price inflation. Many countries are getting frustrated with the USD and are looking at other options, either being direct trade/ currency swaps or an alternative reserve currency like the SDR. Guo Shuqing, chairman of the China Banking and Insurance Regulatory Commission Will the SDR replace the roll of the USD? Consisting of a basket of dominant currencies and commodities. These things normally take a long time to build up, but then change very fast. Like the saying, how did you go bankrupt. "Two ways. Gradually, then suddenly."
