I read a similar piece in the "Economist" in which it was pointed out that if other countries, especially Japan and China, decide to drop the US dollar as a reserve currency, and stop buying or worse sell US Treasuries, we could be in big trouble and those checks (US Treasury Bonds) could indeed seem worthless. I gather there is not much confidence in how our government has managed its finances.
