Will the US Dollar Die as "New World Money" Goes Live Today? Should I Buy Gold?

Today, Sept. 30, is when the IMF officially adds the Chinese yuan to its basket of currencies comprising its special drawing right (SDR). It has enormous long-term implications for the dollar.

All the US gold, when priced in current dollars, seems rather unimportant in relation to the QE1, QE2, QE3, QE to Infinity, and “print or die” economics.
