The fiat currency system may not survive the next recession, according to investment guru Peter Schiff, who believes technology will enable the return of gold and silver as globally accepted forms of currency.
“I think that when the collapse in the dollar occurs, there will be a widespread return to using gold and silver as money, or at least having other currencies backed by gold and silver as money again,” Schiff said in an interview.
“With today’s technology, the transition will be much easier than if we had tried to do this in the ’80s or ’90s.”
Once we took the money out of the economy, once we substituted real money for fiat, that was the beginning of these problems. And the end of these problems is going to be returning to honest money, which is gold. https://t.co/cyCsc1Hn8h

Peter Schiff on the demise of the dollar
Schiff, the CEO of U.S. investment advisor and broker-dealer Euro Pacific Capital, said fiat (paper) money had been propped up by regulators such as the Fed.
He believes the imminent demise of the U.S. dollar as a global currency is due to U.S. “fiscal profligacy” that has pushed the budget and trade deficit beyond the limits, leaving the dollar at the mercy of foreign reserves held by other countries.

“I personally think the dollar is the most dangerous currency of all because of what the Federal Reserve has been doing for years at unprecedented levels. Gold and silver offer the only protection from outright currency collapse and bank failure,” he said.
