Obama Warns of a 'Double Dip' Recession

President Barack Obama says he's worried that spending too much money to help revive the economy could undermine a fragile U.S. recovery and throw the economy into a double-dip recession.

In an interview Wednesday, he added that “it's important to recognize that if the nation keeps adding to deficit spending through tax cuts or more stimulus spending, at some point people could lose confidence in the U.S. economy and that could lead to a double-dip recession."

What he means is that central banks around the world are losing confidence in the value of the dollar, which could lead to a currency crisis.  Just yesterday the IMF said that it wants to replace the dollar as the Reserve Currency.

Obama is trying to convince the world that America will get it spending under control so that they do not continue losing faith in the value of the dollar.  Without a gold backing, faith in our nation is the only thing that supports the value of the dollar in the global economy.  In the mean time, gold is headed to $5000 per ounce.

The value of the dollar is the cornerstone of the economic strength of America.  If the value of the dollar continues to drop, America will lose its economic strength and its influence as the world’s only remaining superpower. 

The value of the dollar is in a dangerous position and Obama is going to have to make some very hard decisions in the opposite direction of this agenda is order to save the dollar from a crisis. 

For now, Obama is trying to talk up support for more confidence in the dollar, but talk is cheap and he is going to have to start taking action very soon.  Foreign central banks no longer trust political leaders in the West. They only trust policy actions. 

In the end, the U.S. will have to face the music and that means raising interest rates to double-digits to extract the trillions of dollars that was poured into the economy - in order to save the value of the dollar. 

That means that Obama and company have no choice but to intentionally drive the U.S. economy directly into a double-dip recession.

Meltdown: A Free-Market Look at Why the Stock Market Collapsed, the Economy Tanked, and Government Bailouts Will Make Things Worse

In discussions of today's economic meltdown and what to do about it, the Federal Reserve is a stealth helicopter: it never shows up on the radar. With the exception of a few esoteric specialists and those Ron Paul Revolutionaries who burst into chants of "Abolish the Fed!" Historian Thomas Woods notes in this important book, the Federal Reserve bears a large part of the blame for the mess we're in. In the first part of "Meltdown," Woods shows how both in theory and in practice, Fed policy fueled an artificial boom and is now leading us to a much larger meltdown.

The Case Against the Fed

This book, written by Murray Rothbard, an economist and historian of fairly well known repute, is a scathing attack on not only the Federal Reserve, but the interests that created this institution. Rothbard explains how the Federal Reserve is the true source in the destruction of wealth, which has led to the destruction of the middle class and continues to sift money into the hands of the wealthiest.

The Hyperinflation Survival Guide: Strategies for American Businesses

The Hyperinflation Survival Guide offers strategies for business managers to keep their enterprise afloat in the midst of runaway inflation. Within this succinct little book are a plethora of sensible business strategies for American businesses. If businesses are to survive they must effectively counter and minimize the ill effects of rampant inflation and/or hyperinflation. The utmost prudence is required in managing accounts receivable, inventory, and production at such a time. A sudden inflationary economic downturn may very well bring a business to its knees leading to insolvency.

America Alone

In this, his first major book, Mark Steyn--probably the most widely read, and wittiest, columnist in the English-speaking world--takes on the great poison of the twenty-first century: the anti-Americanism that fuels both Old Europe and radical Islam. America, Steyn argues, will have to stand alone. The world will be divided between America and the rest; and for our sake America had better win.
