Since 1990 there have been several major currency crashes throughout the world.
Consider the Mexican peso crash of 1994, when — in just 42 days — the value of the currency plummeted 39%.
Or in 1997 during the Asian Currency Crisis, when Thailand's currency — the Thai baht — lost 23% of its value in just 25 days... and then lost another 41% of its value in the following six months.
But these weren't isolated events...
The same thing happened in Brazil in 1996... in Russia in 1998... in Argentina in 2001... in South Korea in 2007... and in Iceland in 2008.
Each time, tens of millions of people were affected.
