Author John Rubino discusses the bursting of the financial bubble by the pandemic and how long governments and central banks can continue to extend the life of the economy with bailouts, deficits, money printing, and negative interest rates. He also gives his take on the US dollar, digital national currencies, the coming monetary reset, precious metals, the potential for civil unrest, and how individuals should best be preparing for the economic collapse.
