The author considers the Chinese proposal to the world community to adopt a new currency as a counterbalance against the U.S. dollar. He emphasizes that this call had favorable responses from totalitarian regimes like China, such as Russia, Venezuela and Iran. He claims that even U.S. Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner, representing the alleged authoritarian regime of President Barack Obama, has joined in the call for an alternative to the dollar. He parodies how this new currency will be named after the authoritarian personalities in world history.
