    The Amero is total, complete, paranoid horse-hockey.

    My first impulse whenever I see anything about the "Amero" is an internal "lolno."

    If you checked it out, you'd learn that the subject pre-dates Obama by many years.

    First, this is a false rumor. An untruth. A red herring. A lie made up for the sole purpose of trying to scare Americans into voting one way or another. I provide the link at the bottom here to prove it.

    Second, so many lies are being spread right now about Obama and the Democrats that some people are actually researching Snopes and other sites to verify them. Many professional liars are attempting to label such debunking websites as "tools of the liberal media elite". I suggest googling "Snopes Obama" to prove my assertions.

    Third, if I were a conservative/liberal/indepedent and I was being fed these blatant lies in an overt attempt to manipulate me I would be very, very angry. At the source of the lies, not the victim of them.

    Just my two cents.

    Believe me the Amero will never come. Canada has no interest in propping up the american economy.

    The Amero is an interesting intellectual exercise, probably a term paper or two could be written on the subject, but ask Greece if they're happy that they are part of the Euro Zone.

    Wow. Harsh.

    Never say never. Who knows what economic balance or political alliances could exist in the future based on the situation today? Who could have predicted a few decades ago that the EU would become a reality?

    However, it's really hard to imagine Americans giving up their grasp on the "mighty dollar". What I'm pretty confident is not going to happen, as certain conspiracy theorists propose, is that all the banks and ATM's will be closed for a "holiday", and the next day all the worthless US currency will be replaced by shiny new Ameros.

    I assume there is just about no chance of the "amero" happening. Monetary unions need fiscal unions if they are to work properly, and they need compatability between the economies concerned. USA, Canada and Mexico fall on both hurdles.

    It is however an interesting example of the popular fascination with currency unions. There has been a trend among the chattering classes to think that currency unions are the look of the future, perhaps even leading to a global currency. The early (apparent) success of the euro supported this popular view.

    I wonder however if the correct direction should be the opposite. The advent of instant (and virtually free) electronic currency conversion has largely eliminated one of the problems of trading between currencies, while big business deals can in theory express prices in terms of a bucket of currencies, greatly reducing the uncertainty. I wonder if it is time to recognise that the fundamental concept of a currency union is becoming an irrelevance in the internet age.

    I take it that the chance of the amero ever coming into existence is tiny. Also a tiny chance - yet a little bit more likely it seems to me - is the idea that say California could float its own currency. A case (of sorts) could be made. I'm not advocating this and I'm well aware of the drawbacks, but it seems to me it is more likely than the amero ever happening.

    States have no legal right to issue their own currency:

    [FONT=Arial,Helvetica][SIZE=-1]During the 18th century, each State came to issue its own coinage, payable in Spanish dollars. The States continued to issue their own coins during the Revolutionary War. However, this right ended with the ratification of the constitution in 1790. Henceforth, all coins were to be Federal money (the Bank of North America, established in 1781, was the first Federally authorized bank), though the States continued to maintain their own mints for the purpose of producing the Federal coins. Many members of Congress were firmly opposed to the notion of a federalized monetary system, and the issue remained contentious for decades after the adoption of the Constitution.[/SIZE][/FONT]

    Agreed. But laws can always be changed. Or ignored.
