The New King will not accept political correct paper money!
An easy comprehension of the old king loosing his power can be assessed by tallying his bank account and safe deposit box. You can write as many promissory notes as you want to, but you had better have some type of monetary substance of bartering available if your notes are called. Growing monetary substitutes are on the rise to replace American paper money. The most common reserve substitute is gold or precious metals which are most beneficial in bartering a debt. The paper money of the U.S. has almost become worthless in the global monetary system. It is true that the world monetary system is still based on the U.S. dollar, but that philosophy of finance has literally shifted away with the awaiting of a new world monetary currency or bartering replacement.
The Old King has no clothes on!
Yes, the old king must be demoted to servant, and that's what transitioning today on this little planet called earth. The old king allowed a vast number of special interest groups to become far too powerful within its government which led to the eventual take over by special interest groups in the academics, government, science and media. Such political maneuvers upon the old king blinded his focus on real world relationships. The result is the old king's unfocused authority has been stripped and taken away and now the old king must become servant to the new king, China. Like it or not we are living in a serious teachable moment of no return to playing with political correct engineering. The damage has been done.
Snap Shot of the New King's bank account!
During the month of October of 2009 China's foreign exchange reserves had grown into large numbers unthinkable. Within a six month stretch during the year China's reserve pile jumped $318bn, which is a sum nearly equal to the annual gross domestic product of Argentina. Now check this out: The additional reserve of $318bn created a grand total of $2,270bn, which is a very nice reserve to have and a reserve the U.S. would drool for. American Ghost Money!Having such an abundance of funds in reserve would seem to be the best answer to any monetary problem that may arise. Unfortunately, China is in a major dilemma with its money reserve. The reason for their dilemma is because two thirds of their reserves are in vulnerable U.S. dollar assets. To add insult to injury, the problem with China holding promissory notes on the U.S. is that the promissory notes are almost worthless and that's a serious problem. This is how wars come about, when a default can not go unchecked. China can not dump the dollar assets because of the decline in the monetary value for the dollar and treasury bonds. China would be the biggest loser in short selling their U.S. dollar assets. Thereby the escalation of world jitters would erupt if China were to call the U.S. on its debt owned.
Fantasies are for Kids!
This is a serious situation and a not fantasy or something that political correctness can blind over on anyone. There are governments, entities and people of other countries and nations that have become much wiser and advanced in using common sense when dealing with their money. They have the power now, and the U.S. must answer to them. Remember, China is the biggest holder of promissory notes on the U.S., but there are many more nations who hold promissory notes on the U.S. as well. Word of caution, when someone wants their money all bets are off the table.
