Intelligence Community Is Prepping For Black Swan Events That May Crush The US Dollar

It looks like the US Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) is looking to sponsor a researcher who can conduct a study on what would happen if the dollar would no longer be a global reserve currency.

The agency posted at the end of last year a job listing with the deadline on February 28, listing in which it’s saying that it’s looking for people with a background in economics. It also mentions the research is the first one of its kind for the intelligence’s post-doc program and that it’s meant to help with preparation for a black swan eventuality in which the US dollar would no longer be globally dominant.

The Research to Be Shared with the Intelligence Community

The study would fall under the National Counterproliferation Center’s purview. The National Counterproliferation Center is functioning under the ODNI and tries to combat weapons of mass destruction from being proliferated, mostly by stopping terrorist financing. The results of the research will be shared with the intelligence community.

While not attributed to any event or trend, the job listing does say it’s looking for cryptocurrency enthusiasts because there is the eventuality in which a digital currency undermines the US dollar, for example the digital yuan scheduled to be issued by China. This is exactly what the listing reads:

“If either of these scenarios or others come to pass, the U.S. would lose both its status in the world and its global authorities.”

A Researcher with Black Swan Events Knowledge

The researcher who will be involved in the post-doc program will receive sponsorship from ODNI, access to IT and advanced computing, plus funding. His or her work would be checked by the agency periodically in order to be understood. The researcher would collaborate with ODNI experts and other governmental entities.

The agency wants someone who knows how to work with statistics, artificial intelligence and who has knowledge about black swan events that happened throughout history, all while thinking all sort of scenarios of such events happening in the future.
