The U.S. Dollar has Been the Gold Bug’s Best Friend – Until the “Amero” Debuts

As all gold bugs know, gold’s historic rise since 2001 has largely been attributed to the dilution of the U.S. dollar. Trade deficits, government overspending and the more recent sub-prime mortgage debacle have all helped deflate the greenback while driving up the price of gold.


However, what would happen if the U.S. dollar just disappeared?  How would gold and other hard assets be valued then?


This week the three NAFTA amigos, President George Bush, Prime Minister of Canada Stephan Harper and Mexican President Felip Calderon met to ram new polices down our throats which will impact gold and other commodity prices going forward.


The reopening of the North American Free Trade Agreement is the first strategic move toward a North American Union that will create a new currency to compete with the Euro.


On Tuesday, the U.S. dollar sank yet again with the Euro breaching the psychologically significant $1.60 mark for the first time.


It’s only a matter of time before the U.S. dollar collapses to the point of no return internationally. With the Fed unable to manage the slide with higher interest rates due to the economic slowdown in the U.S., the three amigos are setting up the chess pieces for the inevitable next move: the creation of a North American currency, the “Amero.”


The Hallmark of Bush’s presidency could very well be the creation of the Amero, the perfect solution and savior to the failing U.S. dollar. Whether it’s Bush or the next president, at some point in the not too distant future the dollar will be abandoned and a new game will begin.


International trade has already started to price commodities in Euros as foreign governments holding dollars have lost their shirts while holding Euros has increased their buying power.


The Euro was introduced with the same degree of stealth such that the citizens of Europe had little choice but to adopt it.


Some thought a European union was an impossible dream but now they have 27 nations under its authority with more members waiting in the wings.


The U.S. is already facing economic hardship which will only get worse. The Amero will be introduced to the American public as the administrations solution to recover from the current financial mess.


In Canada, the Canadian dollar has been trading at close to par for several months. Canadian politicians can easily sell the idea of the Amero by simply making promises of cheaper gas prices (Americans pay amongst the lowest prices in the western world.) Plus many Canadians who live near the border travel to the U.S. for major shopping binges buying assortment of much cheaper goods from dairy products, used cars, electronics and clothing. If they can get the same prices at home, the NAU will be an easy sell.


As far as the Mexicans are concerned well, doesn’t nearly everyone already speak Spanish from California to Florida?


In the interim, gold’s still got a long way to go so stay tuned. However be aware that the Amero will put the brakes on gold’s march as the illusion of strength and power will put confidence into the world’s latest fiat money system. Also know that in the history of mankind, fiat money systems have always failed. The U.S. dollar is the latest victim.
