Pot calling the Kettle Black. China manipulates its currency, The US federal reserve prints $ at its own discretion.

Perhaps we need one worldwide currency , as water will seek its own level. $ manipulation is akin to Dams and Pumps, prown to break downs and costly repairs.
Mankind has within its Brain the abilty to create One Currency.
But alas The Bankers would lose $ by not being able the play around with it.
