100,000 American businesses have closed permanently over the last six months. Up to 30 million Americans are collecting unemployment compensation.

In an attempt to coax the economy back to life, the feds are dropping new “fake” money from their helicopters at a rate never seen before. The U.S. dollar has lost ground… and will lose a lot more.

And it looks like our editor is the only one asking where it will all end…

The Federal Reserve is promising nearly $5 trillion in new money by 2023. Take your seats as the curtain rises on Act Four of the Fed’s well-rehearsed farce… in which the fatal flaws of our fake-dollar system take center stage.
