Jim Corr might be right after all..

Anyone, hear Jim Corr's interview this week on the Matt Cooper show? Sounded like Jims theory about a Single Global Currency last year might actually be coming true ..?

I don't remember hearing anything about a global single currency, but he did mention the new world order and 5 or 6 continental bloc organisations (EU and US being the 2 most developed examples at the moment). Is there a podcast somewhere we can listen to?

Are there signs of a single global currency?

I'm involved in economics, and I haven't heard a single sign of such a currency. There have been suggestions for some kind of global reserve bonds, but this is nothing new and comes from only a few academic economists, most notably Joseph Stiglitz.

Well, I know there was some proposal (from a Canadian economist?) just after the crash started.

I was more asking if there is anything more than some economist(s) making a proposal...iof there are actual nations getting behind such an idea...

Didn't see a link to back the claim up. A US Senator (uninformed one at that) came up with the same claim a while back but she misinterpreted a comment by a Chinese politician for other countries to not place as much importance on the US Dollar for their reserves, totally unrelated to a common currency. As for Jim Corr, I wouldn't let him write a song for me, let alone take his advice on World Events.

I have seen mention of Single Global Currency in some media articles and I think Gorden Brown might have mentioned it in an interview recently .

A 3% tax increase to the levels of 15 years ago is socialism, but it's also facism at the same time. According to the respected journalist on fox called Glen Beck.
