Summary
Examines the green-back's history, allure, and unique role as a catalyst for globalization, and how the American buck became so almighty that $ became perhaps the most powerful symbol on earth. But will the buck be eclipsed by the euro or even China's renminbi? Should Americans worry when the value of the mighty U.S. dollar sinks to par with the Canadian "loonie"?--From publisher's description
