“I mean a collapse of the fiat-based system where the dollar is at the center and other currencies are backed by or pegged to the dollar, and the dollar acts as the primary reserve asset.”
“That system has produced enormous global imbalances that are straining the global economy. Ultimately, I think the whole thing gives way and what returns is what existed prior to the dollar standard, and that is a global gold standard, which is the only thing that really works.”
