One world currency

The world will run on one currency – and you will need an identification chip in order to use it. Everyone will be assigned an identification chip at birth, and this will be our new form of identification and currency. You will not be able to purchase or sell anything without this chip implant. This chip will make it more secure and convenient to purchase things in the future.

Life will be easier but, we will lose our sense of privacy.

Michael Brabant It will be tried, because our leaders will insist on it, but it will also fail. The failure is actually inevitable. Why? Because it is merely a digitalization of a failed system that is already lopsided, and relies on countries not weighing it down a single currency. So if it fails at all, then it all fails at once. Think Zimbabwe 2008 on a global scale. Hyperinflation. They now use the US dollar, and at the height of the hyperinflation, a single US dollar (which they have used ever since) was worth 150 billion ZWD. Think Greece right now (has not been under 100% debt to gdp ratio for many years), which is on life support, propped up by (and weighing down) the euro. But they'll insist this takes place. There is no currency fallback if it fails. We go back to gold/silver or bartering.

Kevin Culli The technology will certainly be there for this one, but there are significant obstacles. One world currency means one world market. Which means either a global (but improved) European Union-type structure, or one world government. Either are possible, but the troubles of the EU show that even with a handful of countries, sharing a market is a hard sell. Digital-only currency will probably be the norm by 2040, I think, which would make it easier from a technical standpoint. However it's more difficult for me to conceive of a single world market for all goods. The other huge obstacle is the chip implantation; some people would certainly accept it if they gained enough convenience and flexibility. But others would probably decline for ethical, religious, or health reasons. A wearable device would be much more acceptable to the general populace, I think.

Jacob S Using the mindset of people today, I highly doubt that everyone would submit to this idea. In fact, there would probably be a large enough anti-chip faction that one currency just wouldn't be possible, at least, not in this way.
