j/k. Good question.

The IRS accepts payment in only one thing: US Dollars. Likewise for the bank that holds your mortgage. And the bank that holds the note on your car. Likewise for every Starbucks, McDonalds, Walmart, Target, Grocery store, not to mention, Ebay, etc.

(But not!!!)

In the US, the USD has a monopoly.

Internationally, the USD pretty much has a monopoly.

I'd say the Yuan is the closest competitor, but I don't think they want the burden - at least not yet.

All art is only done by the individual. The individual is all you ever have, and all schools only serve to classify their members as failures. E.H.
