The Power of Money on the World

There are many countries in this world. Within these countries there are systems that are controlled by politicians, and rules that are put in place by these politicians. However, the true ruler of any country is its currency. Whoever controls the money in the world controls the world. Look back at history and you will see that every major power has also been the financial power of the world.

Egypt was the most powerful nation in the world in the 3000 and 2000 millenia BC not because they had technology, but they controlled the money that flowed throughout the world with trade. With that money they were able to control their people and the technology they recieved.

Rome too had money, they use to build their military to unbelievable strength so no one could defeat them. Money was also Rome's down fall. Money corrupted the politicians and eroded the Empire from within.

England had wealth they used to explore the world and claim everything as there own. They allowed the people the conquered to live peacefully but made them pay taxes to fund their very large endeavors. Again, money was England's down fall. Over taxation forced the conquered to revolt world wide against them. One of the first was the next great power in the world, America

The United Sates is currently the most powerful nation in the world. We use our money to control the nations of this world into doing what we want them to do. It seems as though a shift is taking place and the United States is loosing its grip. The United States too will go down and money will play a large role. Just as the Romans became corrupted so to are the Americans.

Money, unfortunately is necessary in our world. It is how we trade and measure business activity. No country in the world has been able to strike that balance of being rich, living rich, and enjoying the position that money puts you in the world, on top.
