This follow-up to Gromen's first book reintroduces the mysterious Mr. X, a fictional sovereign creditor who has befriended Luke, and through a series of insightful conversations, shares with him his concerns about the United States' financial situation.At the heart of this volume's discussion is the state of the US dollar-centric system. Covering the period from October 2017-January 2019, Mr. X analyzes how China and other countries seek to escape the post-Bretton Woods dollar-centric system in various ways and what that could mean for the US and global economies.
