However, in a congressional hearing on Tuesday, Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen shared her opinion on the same.

According to her, no existing currency can displace the greenbacks.

Though it is true that U.S. sanctions and foreign policy have led to countries such as - China, Russia and others dethroning the dollar, Janet insists that “it will not be easy for any country to devise a way to get around the dollar.”

However, she did issue a warning that the currency's share of the global reserve may continue to decline as other countries continue to “diversify”

When questioned if the dollar's international dominant status is declining she said she sees, “virtually no meaningful workaround for most countries for using the dollar as a reserve currency.”

Gold is an amazing alternative due to its credible stability and maintenance over time.

Art never dies, right? Then what better option for you to invest in than artwork?

Treat it as stocks, you buy and sell and earn.

Looking for something a bit more tangible? Real estate is a field where investment will be resistant to the decline of the dollar and continue to generate a passive income for you.
