    "don't want to dilute my competitive dollar"----"you need to have 'one economy" managed consistently"

    "a unified currency standard would create a much easier way of tracking global economic progress/regression"
    "the banking system that drives the world economy may not be the most effective-----it provides an easy medium for capital to flow in and out....."I could easily exchange my American currency for any I please and with up to date rates" :) :(
    " Now, if someone could convince a high ranking political official....." ha ha ha ha ha
    "There will be no "New World Order" or global "mark of the Beast" in our lifetimes" and things will just continue on as they are with no collapse in the economy :,)
    "3-Is it possible to protect it against counterfeiting over this large space ?" NO. Money, any money, causes greed and crime because one can gain power, privacy and privilege. People do things they wouldn't do because of money. IT IS NOT HUMAN NATURE. (sorry, not really yelling)
    "I think the best we can hope for is free-floating market-driven exchange rates between currencies and something akin to a Geneva Convention establishing some common principles for economic standards and regulations. (ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha) Even that is likely something not to be achieved in the next couple of decades."

    Hope is not real. Let's keep money. Let's keep all our problems and in fact let's double them, or even triple them because I cannot envision, NO,no, no, I refuse to envision a different world without them and I refuse to give up what we have and are so familiar with.

    Nothing here that doesn't revolve around wanting to keep the monetary system even though it is so blatantly unfair, unjust, completely broken, failing rapidly and with nothing new being talked about to replace it.
    When it goes, you will take what they give you.
    • Aug 21 2012: Are you going to actually propose a solution, support your argument, or simply mock others on their views? Because it's not exactly productive to do the latter.
