The Almighty Dollar

The dollar is part of the Americanised world culture of the second half of the 20th century, along with the English language, multinational firms, jeans, McDonald’s or Coca Cola. But unlike jeans or Coke, the dollar is a truly fundamental problem of world politics and the world economy, since many of the social and political developments that affect a large section of humanity depend in large measure on the dollar’s ups and downs.
