The Amero currency - replacing the dollar?
Information on the Amero currency compiled by Society for American Sovereignty TM.
The creation of regional currencies, and the removal of "unwanted currencies" is necessary, according to Benn Steil. Writing in the Council on Foreign Relations publication, Foreign Affairs, Steil states that, "The world needs to abandon unwanted currencies, replacing them with dollars, euros, and multinational currencies as yet unborn." "Countries should abandon monetary nationalism," says Steil.

"The introduction of the Euro to the world's financial markets in 1999 made the idea of one currency for numerous countries seem possible, and attractive... The Euro also made other nations more than a little nervous as to how they would manage to compete with this new, and strengthening, currency. These factors led the US, Canada, Mexico, Argentina, Chile, Brazil, and Columbia to begin to explore the feasibility of creating the 'Amero' as a counterpart to the Euro. The 'Amero' would be a common currency, not necessarily the US dollar, that all of the countries in the Americas would use as their own.
...Some economists believe that full Dollarization or the 'Amero' associated with a Free Trade Agreement of the Americas will not happen for 5-20 years."
