The Euro is proof that money can tie disparate nations together, albeit loosely. The pursuit of a global economy has reached an infectious high again during the G20 meetings.
I’m sure we have all heard by now that Gordon Brown is using that hackneyed phrase “new world order”.
“This is the day that the world came together to fight back against the global recession,” he said. “Not with words but with a plan for global recovery and reform.”

In addition, President Barack Obama said the deal was a “turning point”.
Neither the UK or the US seem to understand that Europe and the global economy will be the downfall for both nations. We have ignored our Creator, and we have ignored the warnings of prophecy.
In addition, on 7 April 2009, the Telegraph also reports in “The G20 moves the world a step closer to a global currency” that there is a clause in the agreement that will authorize the IMF to use Special Drawing Rights (SDRs), a made-up currency the IMF has not been able to use for 50 years now.
Economics can make people band together for better or for worse. Economic conditions allowed the rise of fascist states prior to WWII, for example.
Meanwhile, maybe the G20 should be looking at the MSNBC article “What if the world all used the same currency?” for some of the downside of a common currency.
