World Reserve Currency – China says yes.

Posted by Jesse on March 23, 2009

Bernanke: Oh no, no, no. No ones talking about a World Reserve Currency. We can print our way out of this mess.

Barack Obama: Geez, ya know. We’d be taking a stronger lead towards achieveing the goals I set forth during the campaign, but all these setbacks….this crisis, you know, we couldn’t have anticipated it.

Ron Paul: We are going to have a dollar crisis. I ran for Congress in the 70’s because Nixon removed the last remnants of the gold standard and I knew that would lead to disaster. We need to have sound money, move towards a new gold standard and abolish the Federal Reserve. (Also see: The Case for  a Genuine Gold Dollar)

Financial Times: China’s central bank on Monday proposed replacing the US dollar as the international reserve currency with a new global system controlled by the International Monetary Fund.

Steve Clemons, director of the American Strategy Program at the New America Foundation and author of the influential blog The Washington Note, discusses his view that there will not be a war against Iran barring the creation of some sort of incident, al Qaeda’s goals in the region, the end of Castro’s reign in Cuba, Ron Paul and Chris Dodd’s position in favor of normalizing relations with them and the differences and sames between the neocons, realists and liberal internationalists.
