The Mark Of The Beast
The September 1988 issue of The Economist magazine had emblazoned on its cover: “Get ready for a world currency”
The title of the article: Get Ready for the Phoenix, begins: “THIRTY years from now, Americans, Japanese, Europeans, and people in many other rich countries, and some relatively poor ones will probably be paying for their shopping with the same currency. Prices will be quoted not in dollars, yen or D-marks but in, let’s say, the phoenix. The phoenix will be favored by companies and shoppers because it will be more convenient than today’s national currencies, which by then will seem a quaint cause of much disruption to economic life in the last twentieth century. At the beginning of 1988 this appears an outlandish prediction.”
The authors “quaint cause of much disruption” which began about 2008 remains a growing and harsh reality that is systematically destroying national economies around the globe. The end game spelled out clearly thirty years in advance, the article continues: “This points to a muddled sequence of emergency followed by a patch-up followed by emergency, stretching out far beyond 2018 – except for two things. As time passes, the damage caused by currency instability is gradually going to mount; and the very trends that will make it mount are making the utopia of monetary union feasible.” The Economist article concludes, “Pencil in the phoenix for around 2018, and welcome it when it comes.”
