8-11-2012 Randalln: The basket is a real thing. It's what the IMF gauges the world trade of SDR's from. Please do some research. It's how the currency world gets the rate of trade for all transactions.
This aint some make-believe thing tied to a RV thats going to save the planet (we call that the Iraqi dinar) and yes I believe in the dinar.
It's a real thing that is based on the 6 top currencies of the world. Please look in to it and gold is not involved, oil either.
8-11-2012 Whatsthis: First off, baskets of currency are controlled by the World Bank & IMF together. As for which currency will go when, I believe it is up to the country as to how much they will raise or lower their currency.
Take China as an example they are under valued & have are being pushed to raise it but they will set it at what they feel is the right amount to keep inflation down.
Now as for a reset button that is guru talk. But keep in mind when 2 or 3 currencies gain in value & are used as reserve currency it can have an effect on others. How much it can effect it I have no clue.
