Re: <nettime>the dollar's demise (and the rise of Asia)


here's that article link exactly:

http://www.economist.com/agenda/displaystory.cfm?story_id=3421877

there were a number of articles written about a hidden motivation for the 
(2nd) iraq war - that saddam (and iran already) started accepting the euro 
as official currency for iraq's oil instead of only the american dollar. 
venezuela was also moving in this direction, and some authors wrote that 
the US was trying to nip all that in the bud.

here is one such article archived from the guardian uk from july:
