The WHOLE thing, the choice between the status quo vs alternative is like a hall of mirrors... whatever we choose, even if not sabotaged from the start will ultimately be subverted to benefit 'The Powers That SHOULD NOT Be'.
If a 'Global Currency' is bad vs national currency because the latter can serve as a firewall to prevent a domino effect in-case of crashing currencies. Then 'Free Trade' is also bad because national self sufficiency can serve as a firewall to prevent a domino effect in case of catastrophes that affect supplies, be it food or any other necessity.
Free Trade is undesirable for any society wishing to retain in-house intelligence and skills. Where manufacturing goes, so goes the intelligence it takes to manufacture.
if we can decipher the human genome, crack the atom, send ships into space, send ships into deep waters, preform extraordinary microscopic surgery that saves lives, THEN WHY THE FRIG CAN'T WE FIGURE OUT HOW TO SET UP A SYSTEM OF FINANCE AND TRADE THAT BENEFITS EVERYONE EQUALLY OR AT LEAST FAIRLY ACCORDING TO INDIVIDUAL INPUT?
Why can't we do a systematic analysis of all the cultures that have come before and answer the age old question once and for all... what systems of trade and finance produced the most happiness and advancement for the greatest number of people at any give time in history?
