BY JAMES RICKARDS POSTED  SEPTEMBER 8, 2017 Dear President Trump: America is in for a Rude Awakening in January Dear President Trump, Over the last couple of years I’ve been all over TV… from Fox News to CNBC, CNN and Bloomberg. I’ve been telling our fellow Americans that the financial global elite was planning to issue their own globalist currency called special drawing rights, or SDRs. And that those elites would use this new currency to replace the U.S. dollar as the global reserve currency. I’ve even written about this extensively in my best-selling booksThe Road to Ruin and The New Case for Gold. I’m sure some people in the mainstream media thought I was out of line — but the United Nations and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) have both confirmed this plan to replace the U.S. dollar is real. I’ve made this warning many times, but it seems to be falling on deaf ears. That’s why I’m writing directly to you.

That’s when the global elite will implement a major change to the plumbing of our financial system. It’s a brand-new worldwide banking system called Distributed Ledger Technology. And it will have a huge impact on seniors who are now preparing for retirement. When this system goes live, many nations will be able to dump the U.S. dollar for SDRs. For now, the U.S. dollar is still the world’s reserve currency. Other nations have to hold and use the U.S. dollar for international trade, instead of their own currencies. This creates a virtually unlimited demand for U.S. dollars, which allows us to print trillions of dollars each year to pay for wars, debt and anything we want. It keeps our country operating. Now, we can see that (more…)
