The childish performance of Congress is making the US dollar an increasingly risky investment. China yesterday warned America to get its finances in order; and the BRIC countries have now decided to avoid the US dollar by trading among themselves, using gold to settle their trading accounts. Russia and China are planning their own trading currency and even their own reserve bank. This group of countries alone represent over 60% of foreign investment in the US dollar and without it there would be no money to cover the deficit. Why aren't the American people being told this so that they can force their government to grow up, as they did over the threat of another unnecessary war in Syria? Both their government and their press are failing them, and this can only lead to disaster.
