    Here is a link for the op story.


    Medvedev Shows Off Sample Coin of New ?World Currency? at G-8 - Bloomberg.com

    July 10 (Bloomberg) -- Russian President Dmitry Medvedev illustrated his call for a supranational currency to replace the dollar by pulling from his pocket a sample coin of a “united future world currency.”

    “Here it is,” Medvedev told reporters today in L’Aquila, Italy, after a summit of the Group of Eight nations. “You can see it and touch it.”

    The coin, which bears the words “unity in diversity,” was minted in Belgium and presented to the heads of G-8 delegations, Medvedev said.

    The question of a supranational currency “concerns everyone now, even the mints,” Medvedev said. The test coin “means they’re getting ready. I think it’s a good sign that we understand how interdependent we are.”
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    In order for a currency to be an actual threat to any other currency that currency not only has to be recognized by more then one nation as a currency..it then has to have the capitol backing to make it have value.




    Medenevs claim that because he got a coin made it means the world is gearing up for a currency switch is moronic..In fact my only guess on that is he thinks his audience is stupid.

    This is true but one must consider China who in the next couple of decades may have an economy that will surpass ours. They are siding with Russia and a few other countries to replace the dollar as the global standard.

    Distortion of the facts is a necessity for the western media. How can anybody trust to what he reads I don’t know. It seems like reading has completely replaced thinking how days.


    Medeved is a magician. He pulled a coin out of an empty pocket. And everyone believes he can do. Pure magic.

    How did the coin get into his pocket?
    How did the coin get into his?
    How did the coin get into his pocket?









    It was a gift from organizers of the G-8 meeting. They thought of and minted the coin.


    ''He explained that the coin - this is a gift, which was given to all heads of delegations.
    "The coin was minted, I think, in Belgium, this is a test batch ...", - said Medvedev.

    Google Translate














    Now carry on with reading.

    Until nations begin trading, more specifically the US begins trading in the new world currency, any hopes for a new reserve are a pipe dream. The dollar is the world reserve due to our current account deficit. If we buy products from countries with dollars, they have to do something with them (buy treasuries), especially if they want to buy any sort of US goods (such as military equipment ).
    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    I actually do agree with you here... the 'conspiracy theorists' are not all made equal, even in cases where 2 may be saying very similar stories one of them may just be a 'nut job' while the other has legitimate research backing him. Which is why I'd take the word of anyone who advises to NOT take their word but to check the facts for themselves, where someone who advises that he has all the answers typically has an agenda. Discernment is key.

    Skull&bones, Bilderberg, illuminati among other secret societies are real. The true power and influence is, say, difficult to guage in the level of secrecy involved. However, with the case of bilderburg when their documents come out they are surprisingly accurate in the 'plans' (or 'prophecy') (ex : while oil was 60$ a barrel, they said over the next year would go up to the 150$ range before dropping as a means of bankrupting many of the oil producing nations)

    True. So far this currency has been put into use through the IMF and while does not represent a PHYSICAL currency it is a 'pool' of several different currencies.

    What I can not comment on is what are the benefits or drawbacks to countries forgoing the use of the dollar for global trade? You see kids Sam here did not do as well as he should have in Econ class because he was too busy staring at the uber-hot chick who sat in front of him. While others were taking notes, Sam was...well you get the point Seriously though, economics like this are not my strong point, so I would be interested to know further the true implications of moving away from the dollar.
    What's happened is that the Federal reserve (the US central bank) has over-printed US currency and devalued the dollar 95% since 1913. The rest of the world has caught on that the dollar is little more than green TP at this point and naturaly would prefer to trade with something of real value.

    If the world drops the US currency all the currency around the world of US notes will be returned... and well... since the currency has been devalued so much add in all the extra notes will FORCE massive inflation. (Imagine your life savings suddenly not even enough to buy a meal) ... while I'm by no means an economics expert, this has been parroted by other experts that actually understand the why and how of this process.

    It's not moronic, how can you have a global government without a global currency and a global tax (CO2 tax)... this is just the continuation of a process that's meant to lower the world to the lowest common denominator, eliminating any middle class so that the world is split between the slaves and the super-rich controllers.... forcing the 99% of the world to be in full servitude of the wealthiest 1%.

    Eventually the world currency (according to the likes of the Rockefellers) will be through a chip inplanted into every person that controls the money they have.... if you get out of line, they simply need to 'turn off the chip'. But, this story so far is just the next logical step in the process of 'globalization'.

    1 - You can't fit oil in your pocket

    2 & 3 - represent REAL wealth where the aim is to create a new 'fiat' currency that can be put to the presses and devalued as the bankers who would control it see fit.

    You want one world currency? Do you trust the world to not devalue your money?

    I'd like instead a gold-backed system where you put your gold in banks and the bank issues its own currency. That would put competition in currency so that only those who don't devalue their money survive.
