Analysts: Dollar collapse would result in 'amero'
Posted: December 13, 2006
By Jerome R. Corsi
[quote]"The Fed is in a very tough spot here," Chapman wrote, "If they raise rates, the real estate market will collapse, and if they lower rates, the dollar will collapse."...

..."People in the U.S. are going to be hit hard," Chapman warned. "In the severe recession we are entering now, Bush will argue that we have to form a North American Union to compete with the Euro."

"Creating the amero," Chapman explained, "will be presented to the American public as the administration's solution for dollar recovery. In the process of creating the amero, the Bush administration just abandons the dollar."[/quote]

US Dollar Hegemony
The Soft Underbelly of Empire
EPW Commentary
Economic and Political Weekly, March 19, 2005
[quote]The costs of sustaining the US's new 'Empire' will become apparent to its public only when these costs directly accrue to them. This will happen, as this article suggests, only when (i) other nations stop subsidising the US's imperial adventures by colluding in them and (ii) the dollar loses its role as the world's reserve currency.

Islamic Banking
What is Islamic Banking?
The Institute of Islamic Banking and Insurance
[quote]The basic principle of Islamic banking is the prohibition of Riba- (Usury - or interest):

"While a basic tenant of Islamic banking - the outlawing of riba, a term that encompasses not only the concept of usury, but also that of interest - has seldom been recognised as applicable beyond the Islamic world, many of its guiding principles have. The majority of these principles are based on simple morality and common sense, which form the bases of many religions, including Islam.[/quote]

Peak Debt
US Debt & GDP Growth
by Jas Jain
The Market Oracle, Dec 19 2006
[quote]Peak Oil is not the urgent problem that the world faces, economically, or politically.... As a matter of fact, it has been the rapidly rising debt (racing towards the peak), which in turn has "fueled" a worldwide construction boom, that has resulted in the high prices for oil over the past 4 years... I realize that these are not the concerns that people have today as long as the American consumer keeps borrowing. But, for how long?

US 'could be going bankrupt'
by Edmund Conway
Telegraph UK, 14 July 2006
[quote]The answers are terrifying. One solution is an immediate and permanent doubling of personal and corporate income taxes. Another is an immediate and permanent two-thirds cut in Social Security and Medicare benefits. A third alternative, were it feasible, would be to immediately and permanently cut all federal discretionary spending by 143pc."

The scenario has serious implications for the dollar. If investors lose confidence in the US's future, and suspect the country may at some point allow inflation to erode away its debts, they may reduce their holdings of US Treasury bonds.[/quote]

Robert Newman's History of Oil

Stand up routine by Robert Newman that gets at the roots of the Iraq war - includes a sideways glance at 100 years of Middle East history, a look at the relationship between the petro-dollar and the current mess, and even a "who's-on-first" play on the names of Chinese leaders ("You and Huo's army!??" Whahahah). Brilliant!
