The United Kingdom's pound sterling was the primary reserve currency of much of the world in the 19th century and first half of the 20th century.

I imagine the current reserve, the US dollar, will also change someday. When it does, look out; the debt will certainly matter.


PS: I view the USA like the guy who falls off a 25 story building. As he passes each floor, he says, "so far, so good" (but MOI has no idea what floor we just passed.... BEEP BEEP).
