The man who will kill the US Dollar

The death of the US dollar may be because of this man. In today's video, I'm going to cover why the end of the world's most powerful currency may be coming very soon.
The mighty American dollar was once backed by gold, but what a lot of people don't realise is that for a long time it's been backed by oil. Currently, almost all world trade in oil must be done in US dollars, which helps prop up the currency's value.

But that may all be coming to an end. As recently, talks between Saudi Arabia and China may start to signal the death of the American dollar. Which could change the world for all of us.
