Global Currency = Global Democracy

Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke have rejected the proposal for a global currency by Chinese central bank chief Zhou Xiaochuan. However this idea is gaining global support.

This is a big idea with big implications for the emergence of a global democracy. Increased economic integration is the first step in earth's coming of age.

It is selfish and provincial to reject this proposal flat out. In an era where individual decisions affect everyone more and more it would serve us to contemplate the immortal words of Thomas Paine.

"My country is the world and my religion is to do good."
