  1. Dear Richard,

    Thanks for renewing the prediction about the Single Global Currency by 2050.

    The goal of the Single Global Currency Assn. is 2024, but we’ll be very pleased if it happens by 2034 or 2044 or even 2050. On January 1, 2008, two more countries, Malta and Cyprus, will abandon their currencies in favor of the euro. That will bring the number of currencies needed among the U.N.’s 192 members to 144 and slowly declining. Maybe the decline will accelerate as the advantages of monetary union become more widely felt?
