James Rickards Interview: Gold is the Answer to Currency Wars
"I think there is a sense among many of the policy makers and Federal Reserve board governors that the dollar will always be the key reserve currency, and there is no good alternative. Therefore, you can borrow or print as much as you want and have as much debt as you desire. The thinking is that we will eventually grow and pay it back, or there will be inflation or some other remedy. The belief that the dollar is a punching bag that will never break is incorrect. We need to be more conservative or we risk a general collapse of confidence in the dollar."
