The Inspiration behind ‘The Day the Dollar Died’ by Robert V Baynes
I have been watching what is going on in our country for some time now. I am very concerned about the direction America is taking morally, economically and mentally. I think we have fallen morally in the last 50 years. I think at the same time we have thrown out all of the time tested principles of economics and adapted a strategy of debt and economic foolishness. I also think that mentally we have become a nation that no longer cares about anything but self indulgence and the latest pop culture.
I don’t think it takes much stretch of the imagination to see that we are headed for a major storm of epic proportions. Most people are so involved with their everyday lives, that they pay very little attention to this.
I wanted to write a book about the dangers I see ahead and what it means for the average person. After thinking about how to do this, I decided that a novel would be the best way to get the message across. I feel that people remember a story better than a bunch of facts and I think it is also easier to read.
I chose a main character that has very similar values to mine and also portrays many of the people I know personally. I painted a picture of his life as it could be now, and then I wrote of how his life would be changed as the system as we know it began to crash.
I tried to make it as realistic as possible so readers could imagine this scenario happening to them. I used what I know of human nature to portray every character’s reaction in a realistic way.
I hope that people understand the message and warning I am trying to portray in the book. I do want people to be entertained by the story, but I also want them to think that this could really happen in their lives.
I think of the book as a novel with a message. This is the whole reason why I wrote this book.
