Episode Description

Episode 4 of What Went Wrong with America from The Wiggin Sessions, provides a dynamic conclusion to the hit series. After 3 unfiltered episodes, Episode 4: The Demise of the Dollar, follows one of the most dire and important subjects in the world today: the death of our currency.

Make no mistake, your dollars as you have known them will soon be history. Either they will be inflated away or replaced by a digital currency or most likely both. What will your retirement look like then?

How about your savings account?

And even if those outcomes do not come to pass, the United States, for the first time since World War II, is at risk of losing our supercurrency status.

Our country has never been in more danger. And its citizens even more so. It’s all revealed in Episode 4, along with what you can do about this crisis.
