Nazarbayev's on his way!
That's right, Kazakh President Nursultan Nazarbayev has solved the global financial crisis (finally).
"In our view, we must create a single world currency under the aegis of the United Nations," Nazarbayev said on Tuesday according to Foreign Policy. He has never publically spoken about this idea until now; however, he has written about it in the past.
Nazarbayev first called for the creation of a worldwide currency, to be called "acmetal" - a combination of "acme," a Greek word meaning the peak or the best, and "capital" - in an article published last month. He also suggests that we convert from "capitalism" to "acmetalism."
ACMEtalism...Chuck Jones and Mel Blanc could have had a field day with this one.
