One president ago I began to talk about an economic war that was "brewing" (Economic War Of The Pacific, 2009).
The backdrop of that alleged economic war was the "petro dollar" and/or "reserve currency" (First Shots Fired In The Currency Wars, 2, 3, 4; cf. Economic War Of The Pacific, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6).
The current president is making a mockery of US foreign relations and economic policies which fits in with the coming demise of the dollar as the "petro dollar" or "reserve currency" (Trump’s Economic Message Doesn’t Reassure Anyone, New data challenges Trump's economic narrative).
His incompetence, dishonesty, cluelessness, child abuse, and strange bedfellow politics lend a hand to those who want their nation's currency to become the world currency by replacing the US dollar (Phase Two of the Currency Wars?, Phase Three Of The Currency Wars?, Phase Four Of The Currency Wars?).
