And even after reading this article, most will dismiss this as being something normal, part of the way the world is going.  They will argue, that we are not in the last days.  Blinded by the Spirit of Unity.

Meet the ‘father of world currency’
Robert Mundell masterminded China plan to destroy dollar

By Jerome R. Corsi

A plan to replace the dollar with a world currency originated with Columbia University economics professor Robert Mundell, who won a Nobel Prize in economics in 1999 for creating the euro and is now widely regarded as “the father of the euro.”Jerome Corsi’s latest book “America for Sale: Fighting the New World Order, Surviving a Global Depression, and Preserving USA Sovereignty,” available in an autographed edition from WND, devotes Chapter 7 to “The Plan to Destroy the Dollar.” This is the first in a series of articles by Corsi on the demise of the dollar.

Mundell, currently an economic consultant to China, is the originator of the suggestion that the International Monetary Fund should utilize Special Drawing Rights, or SDRs, to replace the dollar as a new standard for holding foreign exchange reserves in international trade transactions.

SDRs are international reserve assets calculated by the IMF in a basket of major currencies allocated to the IMF’s 185 member nation-states in relation to the capital. The assets are largely in gold or widely accepted foreign currencies the members have on deposit with the IMF.

As far back as June 2008, Mundell was telling Reuters a major dollar crisis would come within five years, and China was discussing with him proposals to reform the global monetary system.

“There’s no doubt about it that inside the Chinese government there’s a lot of discussion going on,” Mundell told Reuters. “I’m not sure how they’re doing it, but I know they’re going to get input from me.”

In the interview, Mundell went so far as to speculate the Chinese-recommended solution would involve the IMF.

Aspiring to be the father of a global currency, Mundell has argued, “What you need to have is an International Monetary Fund that’s going to take some of these excess dollars (such as held by China in foreign exchange reserves), put them into a substitution account inside the IMF or some other institution and then use that to create what is a new international currency.”

Mundell stressed to Reuters that such a proposal would be “very acceptable” to China.

Optimum currency areas

Mundell has argued for decades the proposition that nation-state currencies, including the dollar, need to give way to a new official world currency.

According to Mundell, an “optimal currency area” is best defined by international free-trade areas and regional markets, not by nation-states such as the United States of America.

Mundell’s argument was that nation-states are not optimal currency areas because nation-state borders are artificial constraints imposed on the globe to create ethnic or historical divisions that do not necessarily represent how international markets operate.

To understand the concept, Mundell cites former Federal Reserve Chairman Paul Volker’s frequently quoted dictum, “A global economy needs a global currency.”

“The benefits from a world currency would be enormous,” Mundell argues on his website.

G20 votes to fund global currency

The G20 summit meeting in London last week, through the International Monetary Fund, took an important step to create a new global currency to replace the dollar as the world’s foreign exchange reserve currency of choice.

Appearing on Sean Hannity’s Fox News Channel television show, political consultant Dick Morris and Hannity agreed the decision by the G20 proved the “conspiracy theorists were right” and there is now clear evidence of a plan to create a one-world currency.

Point 19 of the final communiqué from the G20 summit in London April 2 specified, “We have agreed to support a general SDR which will inject $250 billion into the world economy and increase global liquidity,” taking the first steps forward to implement China’s proposal that Special Drawing Rights at the IMF should be created as a foreign exchange currency to replace the dollar.

“I think the dollar is now under question,” billionaire investor and political activist George Soros told CNBC, commenting that the goal was to create an IMF currency to use in international trade.

Obama deficits frighten China

China is clearly worried its massive holdings of U.S. dollars are at risk of devaluation, with the Obama administration projecting trillion-dollar deficits into the foreseeable future.

At the beginning of this year, China’s holdings of U.S. Treasury securities jumped to $739 billion, up dramatically from $535 billion in June 2008.

On March 17, the Moscow Times published an article revealing the Kremlin attended to use the April G20 meeting in London to push for the IMF to utilize SDRs as “a super-reserve currency widely accepted by the whole of the international community.”

Then, a few days later, on March 24, the Financial Times in London reported China’s central bank governor Zhou Xiaochuan has proposed to utilize SDRs issued by the IMF as a world reserve currency.

The coincidence of the two announcements gave the impression Moscow and Beijing had coordinated their efforts to undermine the dollar.

The G20 final communiqué gave the strong impression the meeting adopted China’s proposal.

China’s proposal called for the IMF to issue at least $250 billion in SDRs to IMF-member states as a method of placing a safety net under developing countries that might otherwise have to declare bankruptcy.

International overdraft

As Red Alert previously reported, the proposal originally advanced by China and Russia would issue SDRs to central banks of IMF member states far in excess of any gold or currency reserves the member states have on deposit with the IMF.

The idea is to utilize the little-understood and largely ignored SDR’s in a new capacity, as a sort of an international overdraft facility made available to bankrupt or financially failing IMF members originated with Ted Turner, formerly a senior official at both the Federal Reserve and the U.S. Treasury.

The IMF created SDRs in 1969 to support the Bretton Woods fixed-exchange-rate system.

“The international supply of two key reserve assets – gold and the U.S. dollar – proved inadequate for supporting the expansion of world trade and financial development that was taking place,” a a document on the IMF website explains. “Therefore, the international community decided to create a new international reserve asset under the auspices of the IMF.”

When the Bretton Woods fixed-rate system collapse, major world currencies, including the dollar, shifted to a floating exchange rate system where the price of the dollar and other major world currencies was created by trading on international currency exchanges.

Until the current global economic crisis, SDRs issued by the IMF have been used by IMF members primarily as a reserve account to support international trade transactions, not as an alternative international currency available to settle international debt transactions in danger of default.

    Thanks for remaining so wide awake, Debs. YOu have done a great service by introducing us to Corsi’s comments.
    I thought I was aware of what was going on with the economic system but I have never even heard of Mundell. Things are accelerating towards us waking up to the Globalist economic electronic implant system.
    You would think your info would silence the naysayers but it won’t. As you rightly state, it will be seen as something normal.
    Yes, it is indeed this spirit of unity that’s blinding every one to the fact that we are in the last days–including millions professing to be Christians.
    I would would be sleeping myself if it wasn’t for these articles!
