Interesting concept – the United States of America breaking up into four (4)…
Dollar drops. US economy goes into depression. Unemployment skyrockets.
The Chinese decide they don’t care about the USD… and don’t want to own Treasury Bills … they stop buying.
Then what? Where will the money go? What happens to the USA?
Well, with massive unemployment, etc., the states will need more money – and the most viable thing for the US Government will do is to go bankrupt. Increasing the odds that the US will need to break up- as the underpinnings of the US economy would go away.
Hey, not saying it’s awesome – but interesting idea.
