Russian President Dmitry Medvedev pulls new world currency from his pocket

Russian President Dmitry Medvedev pulls new world currency from his pocket

Russia's President, Dmitry Medvedev, pulled the world's new currency from his pocket at the meeting of G8 leaders in the Italian city of Aquila.

4:38PM BST 10 Jul 2009

The future of the dollar was one of several subjects debated at the G8 summit

Mr Medvedev, who has been seeking ways to displace the dollar as the world's dominant reserve currency, produced a sample coin of what he described as a 'united future world currency'.

“Here it is,” Mr Medvedev said, according to Bloomberg. “You can see it and touch it.” The coin, which was minted in Belgium, was presented to all the G8 leaders attending the summit and bears the words 'unity in diversity.'

The possibility of a supranational currency “concerns everyone now, even the mints,” Mr Medvedev said. The test coin “means they’re getting ready. I think it’s a good sign that we understand how interdependent we are.” Russia, alongside China and India, have all questioned the dollar's future as a global reserve currency - a status it has enjoyed since inheriting it from sterling last century.

This is from July of this year. I did a search and did not find this story on here so I posted. If I was in error can anyone tell me if this story was posted on here.

This is from a real news source not Alex Jones type of website.

The world currency can be seen @ http://www.futureworldcurrency.com/

It made the news because only Medvedev mentioned it to reporters - the rest of the G* kept mum on the matter. Probably because the Russians are outsiders in the ways of the G8 so they did not any better than to blab about it?

I think the way this will work in the future is that the individual nations would keep their national currencies like the dollar but the world reserve would be this 'future one world currency'.

In other words the one world currency would peg the value of individual currencies.

So instead of the US dollar being the currency that pegs every other currency - all currencies - including the $ would be pegged against this world currency.

Sort of like the way the Federal Reserve works but for the whole world.

Does my explanation make sense? It is the best I could figure out by the limited news out there.

If it is a gold or silver coin, go ahead. Since under those circumstances the government issuing it or the promises they made would be irrelevant. However if it is just an attempt to replace US Fiat money with UN Fiat money, I'll stick with the local crooks over the international crooks.

It's paper too according to the website http://www.futureworldcurrency.com:

And the paper is supposed to use some sort of encryption to prevent counterfeiting:

US backing for world currency stuns markets

US Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner shocked global markets by revealing that Washington is “quite open” to Chinese proposals for the gradual development of a global reserve currency run by the International Monetary Fund.

Paper is fragile, and wears quickly. Coins stay in circulation much longer. In any case, they seem to have modeled their system on the US currency, replacing only the “one” with a coin, and leaving the rest on paper. Honestly, Germany went up to 5 marks on coin, which worked well. It’s the lower-denomination units which get all the wear anyway. Yes, having a pocket full of metal can be a bit of a pain, and they don’t make many coin purses anymore, but in a one-world system, pragmatism probably would have to take precedence over convenience.

Might be on the edge, but not today, not over currency.

Russians can promote all kinds of crap consistent with what Obamaerica thinks. Dollar is still king. Still the greatest for investors and traders.

Sure there are detractors...

Sure there are other themes coming on when they think America is weak. With Obama at the helm weakening it, the other leeches will come out to feed and contribute to the demise.

Obama the destroyer! All hail the great destroyer!

Since 0bama said in his speech yesterday he embraces all of the UN millenium goals by next year when are they planning to pull this rabbit out of their hats?

Will some people be shocked even though he outright said it in his speech yesterday? Will our MSM report this?

I thought they all embraced the Euro. Please explain.

UK, Denmark and Sweden still use their own currencies.

Only 16 members of the European Union use the Euro.

The 11 that do not are:
United Kingdom
Bulgaria
Czech Rep.
Denmark
Estonia
Hungary
Latvia
Lithuania
Poland
Romania
Sweden
And there are potentially others that may want ‘off’ the Euro.

Doesn’t our constitution trump this?

Manifesto
ART. 1

“Unity in diversity” is the foundation that drives this initiative, which started up in 1996. Its aim is to bring people together and go beyond national stereotypes. Its historical importance is even greater than its economic one; it is a goal built on faith, common hope, and the unification of cultural and spiritual roots.

ART. 2

The relationship between Europe and America, and between the United States and many Countries from the five continents, is based on common cultural traditions and sustained by a parallel vision of the world. It is driven by the highest concepts of brotherhood and peace. These relations are cultivated through global dynamics whose purpose is to fulfill social, political and economic objectives, in full respect of the values and national identities that found countries’ respective constitutions.

ART. 3

It is therefore our wish to bring to life the project for a common currency, which has been given the provisional names, “Eurodollar/Dollaeur” (initially), “United Money”, then “United Future World Currency”. It would symbolize not only the economic, but also the human, social, political, and spiritual bonds between the Nations of different Continents that hold similar ideals.

ART. 4

The common currency project is a highly important step towards bringing people together. It is a means of understanding, provides reference and reinforces different identities that share principle objectives. Competition in respective markets remains free, and the basic principles of participating countries’ national identities will be safeguarded.

ART. 5

We are determined to raise awareness of this project among as many people as possible in all Continents. We are focused particularly on the active involvement of young people, especially from schools. Indeed, young people represent the strongest, most concrete vehicle for spreading this initiative. They are also the potential future beneficiaries of this large step forward towards unification and the creation of a world that responds better to the requirements of the new Millennium, as it gradually breaks down social and ideological barriers.

ART. 6

Renewed cultural interest in the Economy comes as a result of shifting perceptions of currency as a whole. This follows on from the debate opened by the introduction of the Euro. Through this Project, students, including from a very young age, can become familiar with basic economic issues. The latter are increasingly important in a new society of widespread wellbeing.

ART. 7

A joint Committee will be selected. It will include experts from a wide variety of disciplines. Everyone will be free to offer their own contribution to the project. This committee will also form the Jury that selects the most interesting ideas, proposals and projects demanded by different initiatives underway.

ART. 8

There will be an information and support campaign to coordinate working groups, committees and clubs, implemented through organizations, bodies and associations. There will be a consideration period for all contributions regarding the expansion, comparison and development of: issues and technical problems; optimizing legislative instruments and procedures; and fulfilling the obligations of the new Currency.

ART. 9

Trials will be carried out at important international events, aimed at awareness, education and promotion. “United Money” currency (banknotes and coins) trials will be entrusted to the best international professionals and experts in the appropriate fields.
Time will be set aside to explore technologically-advanced security and counterfeiting issues, which a future Currency will have to keep in check. This will involve the most prestigious and trustworthy public and private bodies, including universities and companies.

ART. 10

It will be the responsibility of the world’s future citizens and the governments they put in place to make our Project a reality. This project is driven by a firm belief in the unification and co-existence of different peoples. It aims to promote an increasingly equal distribution of the planet’s resources and human intellect.

Texans reply to Russian President Dmitry Medvedev, display their own new world currency.

"Ours is better" has been reported as being a common remark from the smiling Texans.

"Everybody wants ours, we can't keep up with the demand from those turning in various forms of paper money for the Texas currency."
