U.S. Dollar Flight Continuing
"The U.S. dollar is a terribly flawed currency...I don't want to own a currency which is being debased that way. The central bank of America has said that it will print as much money as it need to drive down the value of the currency...it doesn't take a genius to figure out that this is a currency that will be going down for some time to come. The head of the central bank has been printing money since he got there for two years ago. He is printing money very rapidly now, especially since this summer. This is a man who spent his whole career studying the printing of money, now America has given him the printing presses. I don't want to be in a currency like that. He[Bernanke]'s gonna print money until he runs out of trees. I don't wanna own U.S. dollars in an environment like that. I don't know why anybody would."
Now, even models start to reject the U.S. dollar too. Gisele Bündchen, a Brazilian model of German ancestry, has now said she will no longer accept payments in U.S. dollars and instead wants to be paid in euros.
Personally, I don't think euros is the best alternative given how bad the ECB have been doing in recent months. Gold would be the best, but among paper currencies, swiss francs, swedish kronor, chinese yuan and japanese yen are the most attractive currencies to receive payments in as they are either the most undervalued and/or the least debased.
