UN Warns on US Economy, Dollar

The Financial Times reported UN team warns of hard landing for dollar where the article white washes what the report really says, the United States is at risk for a dollar collapse in 2009:

The UN team said that, as the financial crisis spread beyond the US, there had been a massive shift of global financial assets into US Treasury bills, driving their yields almost to zero and pushing the dollar sharply higher. At the same time, however, the US’s external debt had risen to new heights that could provoke a dollar collapse.

The report recommends reform of the international reserve system away from almost exclusive reliance on the dollar and towards a globally backed multi-currency system.
