Agamemnon's Dollar

“There certainly was no money in the Trojan War. Gold and silver passed by weight; Agamemnon might have had a treasure, but certainly no money.” ~ Voltaire. Agamemnon was the superpower in the age of the Trojan War, and the words that Voltaire has used for him can be used with some justification to describe the condition of the so-called superpower of our time: America. America might have a treasure (wealth), but certainly no money. The dollar is America’s most lucrative export. Making money by exporting money is the world’s oldest scam and America is guilty of it.
