One of the unheralded pillars of the economy of the U.S. is that the U.S. dollar is the only currency fully accepted throughout the world. It facilitates international trade ad allows our economy flexibility unmatched by any other nation. The acceptance stems from a delicate mix of military might, civil stability, a defined code of conduct in international relations along with a reputation for rule of law.
By electing Donald Trump to the Presidency, we have already weakened the basis on which our currency rests. We have already started the process of eroding our international relationships with uncertainty and our reputation for rule of law.
When the potential Head of Government threatens jail for a political rival, even when an investigative body has cleared her and that same person upsets the established international order, he is setting the grounds for uncertainty that will eventually threaten our currency.
