If you aren’t paying attention to the global squeeze of U.S. Dollars then you need to get up to speed quick.
And to my mind, only my good friend, fund manager Brent Johnson and I, have benefited greatly by correctly calling the rise in U.S. Dollars.
Investors, central banks and entire nations are starting to see that the dollar is the number one asset to turn to in times of panic.

I know that sounds ridiculous. But social unrest can lead to civil unrest and could lead to horrible civil wars.
While the dollar is “a horrible currency” according to Brent, it does not absolve the fact that other countries are just as – or even more – fiscally irresponsible than the United States.
And today I’m releasing an exclusive interview with fund manager Brent Johnson.
For full disclosure, I have invested money in his fund.
And none of this is investment advice. It’s two guys who would normally get together over some drinks to talk shop. But with the current world we live in, we did a digital meet.
You may disagree or agree, but we did this for you. We wanted to let all of you in the room to be participants in what our many discussions are like.
In this interview you’ll hear:
