London Stock Trader Urges Move to 'AMERO'
World Net Daily ^ | 11/28/06 | Jerome R. Corsi

Posted on 11/28/2006 6:10:53 AM PST by Kimberly GG

In an interview with CNBC, a vice president for a prominent London investment firm yesterday urged a move away from the dollar to the "amero," a coming North American currency, he said, that "will have a big impact on everybody's life, in Canada, the U.S. and Mexico."

Steve Previs, a vice president at Jefferies International Ltd., explained the Amero "is the proposed new currency for the North American Community which is being developed right now between Canada, the U.S. and Mexico."

The aim, he said, according to a transcript provided by CNBC to WND, is to make a "borderless community, much like the European Union, with the U.S. dollar, the Canadian dollar and the Mexican peso being replaced by the amero."

Previs told the television audience many Canadians are "upset" about the amero. Most Americans outside of Texas largely are unaware of the amero or the plans to integrate North America, Previs observed, claiming many are just "putting their head in the sand" over the plans.

CNBC asked Previs whether he thought NAFTA was "working and doing enough."

He replied: "Until it created a lot of illegal immigrants coming across the border. I don't know. You get the pros and cons on NAFTA. For some people it is a good thing, and for other people it has been a disaster."

The speculation on the future of a new North American currency came amid a major U.S. dollar sell-off worldwide that began last week.

Yesterday, the dollar also reached new multi-month low against the euro, breaking through the $1.30 per euro technical high that had held since April 2005.

At the same time, the Chinese central bank set the yuan at 7.0402 per dollar, the highest level since Beijing established a new currency exchange system in 2005 that severed China's previous policy of tying the value of the yuan to the U.S. dollar.

Many analysts worldwide attributed the dramatic fall in the value of the U.S. dollar at least partially to China's announcement last week that it would seek to diversify its foreign exchange currency holdings away from the U.S. dollar. China recently has crossed the threshold of holding $1 trillion in U.S. dollar foreign-exchange reserves, surpassing Japan as the largest holder in the world.

Barry Ritholtz, chief market strategist for Ritholtz Research & Analytics in New York City, in a phone interview with WND, characterized today's downward move of the dollar as "wackage," a new word he coined to convey that the dollar is being "whacked" in this current market movement.

Ritholtz told WND that yesterday's downward move "was a major market correction that points to the risk of subsequent downside to the dollar."

Asked whether he would characterize the dollar's downside move as signaling a possible collapse, Mr Ritholtz told WND, "Not yet."

Ritholtz pointed out market professionals had long looked at a dollar collapse as a "low probability event," but the recent fall suggests "the probabilities have increased of a major dollar correction, or even of a collapse."

U.S. trade imbalances with China have hit a record $228 billion this year, largely reflecting a surging flow of containers from China with retail goods headed for the U.S. mass market.

Secretary of Commerce Carlos Gutierrez is in Bejing leading a trade delegation of more than two dozen U.S. business executives.

"The future should be focused on exporting to China," Guiterrez told reporters in Bejing, noting that this year, U.S. exports to China are up 34 percent on a year-to-year basis, surpassing last year's gain of 20 percent.

One way to improve the U.S. trade imbalance may be to ease up on restrictions of exporting high-tech products and allowing technology transfers to China, a move likely to be politically charged in the U.S.

The decline in value of the dollar will also make U.S. exports more attractive and Chinese exports to the U.S. more expensive.

In February 2007, a virtually unprecedented top-level U.S. economic mission is scheduled to travel to China. Included in the mission are Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson, Jr., Secretary of Commerce Carlos Gutierrez and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke.

Previs declined to be interviewed for this article, telling WND in an e-mail he did not want to be quoted directly in any article that may express a political point of view.

I used to think that this was tin foil hat stuff but ever since the election and the Bush Administration's steadfast refusal to do anything at all to secure our borders I've been rethinking my position. The 700 mile border fence...the unfunded and now never to be funded border fence...was nothing more than a sop to the masses.

Are you a resident of North America?
 
Who would you vote for as candidates for The North American Parliament? The North American Union is envisioned to create a super-regional political authority that could override the sovereignty of the United States on immigration policy and trade issues.
 
a "borderless community, much like the European Union, with the U.S. dollar, the Canadian dollar and the Mexican peso being replaced by the amero."
 
http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-chat/1745051/posts
London stock trader urges move to 'amero'
Pastor’s 2001 book “Toward a North American Community” called for the creation of a North American Union that would perfect the defects Pastor believes limit the progress of the European Union. Much of Pastor’s thinking appears aimed at limiting the power and sovereignty of the United States as we enter this new super-regional entity. Pastor has also called for the creation of a new currency which he has coined the “Amero,” a currency that is proposed to replace the U.S. dollar, the Canadian dollar, and the Mexican peso.
 
http://www.american.edu/ia/cnas/pdfs/PastorTestimonyCanada.pdf excerpt

The "Amero" would be equivalent of the American dollar, and the two other currencies would be exchanged at the rate in which they are then traded for the U.S. dollar. In other words, at the outset, the wealth of all three countries would be unchanged, and the power to manage the currency would be roughly proportional to the existing wealth. The three governments’ remain zealous defenders of an aging conception of sovereignty whereas the people seem ready to entertain new approaches.


http://www.senate.gov/~foreign/testimony/2005/PastorTestimony050609.pdf

Defining A North American Community

North Americans are ready for a new relationship. Studies over the past 20 years have shown a convergence of values, on personal and family issues as well as on public policy. An October 2003 poll taken in all three countries by Ekos, a Canadian firm, found that a clear majority believes that a North American economic union will be established in the next ten years. The same survey found an overwhelming majority in favor of more integrated North American policies on the environment, transportation, and defense and a more modest majority in favor of common energy and banking policies. And 75 percent of people in the United States and Canada, and two-thirds of Mexicans, support the development of a North American security perimeter. The U.S., Mexican, and Canadian governments remain zealous defenders of an outdated conception of sovereignty even though their citizens are ready for a new approach. Each nation’s leadership has stressed differences rather than common interests. North America needs leaders who can articulate and pursue a broader vision.

Since the Euro has proven to be an unmitigated disaster, they will undoubtedly come up with endless re-inventions of the concept to justify the foolishness. The public will never accept it, so it will have to be done with bureaucratic subterfuge.

The bottom line is that these internationalists suffer a delusion similar to the communists. That is, communists *believed* in communism as a faith, despite any evidence to the contrary. The internationalists are likewise convinced, as a matter of faith, that the future of the world lies in internationalism.

It took 70 years of brutal, punishing examples showing that no element of communism ever works; yet even at the bitter end, many still were true believers. They knew in their heart of hearts that if just a little more resources were given to the system; or, if outsiders would just stop sabotaging it, then it would work.

Europe, to no great surprise, is starting its long, inexorable slide to becoming again like the Holy Roman Empire. But like its predecessor, it will drag on for who knows how long as a joke before some strong leader withdraws his nation, while holding his nose. Then it will collapse like a house of cards. But many of the true believers will remain.

The one thing that opponents of the Amero cannot tolerate is for everyone to just laugh at their ideas, to point and laugh, and call them stupid. True believers hate having their ideas laughed at above all else. It also helps if you tap your forehead with your finger at the same time.

I wish more people would. The realization hit me when hundreds of thousand of illegals and their supporters were permitted, without a single word or warning by our D.C. leadership, post-9/11 to shut down major cities overwhelming local LE all across the country. When you really stop and think about all that has happened, it is clear that the bipartisan OBL is being supported by Bush and is what is behind all the decisions made. CIR is but the next step. Off the top of my head....

1) The statement "we are doing everything in our power to protect this country" is not true, yet is repeated incessantly, as if it is. Anyone with half a brain knows it.

2) There is absolutely no reason, other than OBL, for our borders to have remain unsecured since 9/11. We have soldiers in theatre who are dying in the WOT, yet their families back home are not protected.

3) The statement "we will fight them over there, so that we do not have to fight them here at home", is also OBL rhetoric, repeated incessantly, and is not true.


4) The statement, "in order to secure our border, we MUST have CIR". This is rhetoric that 'bargains', to put it nicely, border security in exchange for CIR. It is not true, but is a statement repeated incessantly, as if true.

5) Current Immigration Laws are not only NOT being enforced, they are blatantly being broken, even by our own federal government.

6) CIR was pushed repeatedly with no regard whatsoever for how it divided the party in this being a critical election year and at risk to majority.

I would be in favor of a North American currency (short of full monetary privatization but that’s a separate issue). But it wouldn’t be called the “amero”, both the US and Canada call their currency the Dollar and that’s based on a Spanish word already. 2nd, US money is already going multicolored, a new design for NAFTA isn’t that far fetched and like the Euro, each nation will print their own national symbols on their currency.

What’s most crucial is that NAFTA and the EU might very well be in competition for the UK. They’re looking for every reason under the sun not to adopt the Euro and if we can provide an even larger currency block then the EU, then we might be able to win them over.

Just to be clear, all I’m talking about is having a common currency, not any significant changes in the political structure other then what would be required to implement it.

Great analogy....thank you. But while that may be true in some cases, as I said earlier, especially here, it really isn't about convincing the naysayers that it's true, the 'denial' is fake and the attacks are nothing but an attempt to prevent discussion on the topic. Many Republicans, just like the Dims, are 100% behind the bipartisan OBL agenda.

I actually did some searching about the Amero. Here is what the Bank of Canada has to say:

LINK

Though there are many other kinds of commodity convertibility, these are, as noted earlier (footnote 3) complicated and hence hard to explain to the public at large. That is one reason why all recent proposals for reforming Canada's monetary order that envisage replacing inflation targets with a system underpinned by convertibility rest, not on a commodity of any sort, but on either a brand new North American currency or the U.S. dollar. Given the Americans' total lack of interest in giving up a shred of control over their own currency, let alone abandoning it for something else, the only proposals among these that are practically possible are those involving either the outright unilateral adoption by Canada of the U.S. dollar as its currency, or the creation of a new Canadian currency linked to the U.S. dollar by way of a currency board.

Kooks like you can "talk to the hand".

Interesting how this is coming up from London...despite White House denials before the election. Now that W has his globalist-compliant RAT congress...I wonder if his agents will continue to deny it.

I don't know if you've noticed, but Fox is a true lame duck, his successor just waiting for the term of office to begin and Bush only has a couple of busy years left.

I guess they'd better get this thing moving, huh? It's so hard to run the conspiracy, though, what with all of you meddling kids!

It's rubbish. See post 37.

Regards, Ivan


It is my belief that the instability of the Mexican government, its corruption, the craziness displayed in their last election, the Canadian governments latest idea of partitioning itself so there is a French nation within Canada, will make the Amero idea too dangerous and idea and it will die a natural death.

However, that said, it is a very serious matter that our president would even attend a meeting at which such a discussion would be on the agenda.

He should have told them to scratch it or he would go ride his horse at the ranch.

So the question again is why did he even discuss it? The Amero, open borders and the super highway from Mexico to Canada; three ideas in combination that are worrisome.

They may never happen, but the question again is why do we have people in high places even considering it? Do we have the right people? You expect this from nutty university professors, not the president

I told you exactly what parameters I used. I didn't find Steve Previs that way.

Secondly, you are by reputation (and my experience) an anti-free trade kook who probably believes in this Amero nonsense.

The single currency idea for NAFTA had its heyday, so far as I can tell, around 1999 - 2000, when a series of discussion papers were passed around. This was, remember, when people thought the Euro was going to be a benefit to Europe's economies. Given what a disaster the Euro has been for countries like Italy, that view has since been revisited. I think what the Bank of Canada said (dated Winter 2005 / 2006) is correct - that America has no interest in re-cooking a failed recipe.

GREAT IDEA. We switch to the "Amero", and leave all the chumps holding " US Dollar Securities" holding the bag! Buy did we play those foreigners as chumps or what? /sarc

"Yeah, the US is just going to up and drop the world's most prominent brand for something that no one's ever heard of."

I think the Germans and the French felt very much the same about the Mark and the Franc, respectively. What currency are they using these days?

The only thing constant is change. If the "leaders" decide we're going to be an American union, we're powerless to stop them.

" I vote cuckoo for Cocoa Puffs."

There you go again. You don't understand the good ol USA. The younguns at google prefer to emphasize Steve Previs the sports player. Sports before politics here in the US. Rather than fight, I just switched search engines to Yahoo.

This dude is no slouch and neither is his company.
