The international monetary system has collapsed three times in the past hundred years. Another collapse is rapidly approaching - and this time the institution of money itself is at risk.
The US dollar has been the global reserve currency since the end of the Second World War. But now America's biggest competitors - China, Russia, and the Middle East - are doing everything possible to end US monetary hegemony.
The potential results? Financial warfare. Deflation. Hyperinflation. Market collapse. Chaos.
Fortunately it is not too late to prepare for the coming death of money. This riveting book shows us how.
