``"If there is any chance that the [US currency's] status declines in the future," concludes Pettis, "it will require that Washington itself take the lead in forcing the world gradually to disengage from the Dollar." Negative real interest rates and the last decade's 27% forex decline -- plus the steady drip of Fed policymakers vowing a "strong Dollar" at the same time as printing it without limit -- look a good start. Dollar earners, foreign savers and potential gold buyers take note.''
