China Proposes A One-World Currency

"The governor of China's central bank has written a proposal for the creation of a global currency, one single monetary unit that could be used to buy and sell worldwide. While a single world currency might be far-fetched right now, China's efforts to promote it at the G-20 summit might get the idea moved from the refrigerator to the back burner.

Governor Zhou Xiaochuan of China's central bank has suggested that the world's financial situation would be improved by moving toward a 'super-sovereign reserve currency.' While most countries find the proposal a bit radical, Russia, India, and Brazil have already spoken in support of the idea. Even US Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner said the US was 'open' to the suggestion - though he acknowledged he not yet read Zhou's paper."
