The whole world is short dollars!
Today, like so many times in the past three years, we see the Fed stepping in and providing dollar liquidity to the world's central banks.
How many times do we have to see this?
The whole world is short dollars.
Let's face it...without the Fed’s intervention the dollar would soar to levels that no one would believe. It would restore American purchasing power, lower inflationary pressures, improve our real terms of trade and by so doing, raise our standard of living.
But what does the Fed do instead?
It “sells” the dollar on the cheap, to central banks that have every capability to sell their own currencies to provide dollar funding for their own, domestic needs.
