Investing During the Petrodollar’s Demise

Jim Payne visits on the radio program for the first time and John Rubino returns.

The spoils of WWII enabled the U.S. to force the world to accept the petrodollar in place of a gold-backed monetary system. But in 2015 the BRICS set up their own competing system that now poses a major threat to the existing monetary and geopolitical order. Thumbing their noses at the petrodollar, they have imported huge amounts of gold and set up their own competing banking system. And now with Russia gaining influence in the oil producing Middle East, the petrodollar’s days may be numbered as the world’s leading reserve currency.

With a declining dollar, Americans may be facing dramatically higher prices for oil and other commodities. Given that potential, we’ll ask John how we should prepare our investments for 2016? If oil prices begin to increase, Jim Payne’s dynaCERT and its proven HydraGenTM provide a partial solution. Not only does it reduce fuel consumption but it also reduces carbon emissions in the process.
