    Revelation 13:16-17 (KJV)
    And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: [17] And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Common (virtual) World Currency is in the pipeline. It will do away with all fiscal fraud, & allow the World Government to keep a tight reign on things. Politicians will love it, but I'm not in favour.

        I think maybe I was a bit confusing; perhaps English is not your native tongue, I apologise.
        The quotation is from the bible; written around 90AD. It tells of conditions near the end of history. There will be an attempt to form a world government with a world currency. This will be partially successful; including around 1/3 of the population. Many think the plastic card system is a precursor to such a system, but ultimately the population will be permanently tagged; perhaps with a microchip. The technology is available today, & it is obvious that the banking system is bankrupt, & corrupt. Things are coming to a head as prophecied.
        I doubt that the gold standard will return, the new regime is unlikely to want to be encumbered by such an honest & fair control system. For many the bible is just a collection of dusty old books, but for those who take the time, it is full of interesting insight.

          Aug 20 2012: Peter, please note that your interpretation of the book of Revelation is one of several, and many (including myself) consider it a historical prophecy pointing to the downfall of the Roman empire after the emperor Domitian during the time of John. As such, it would be irrelevant to this discussion.

        I agree, there are lots of interpretations. Many go with you, many go with me, still others go elsewhere.
        IF I happen to be right, then it is very relevant, if not it isn't. Such is life.
