The other day I ruminated about something unfathomable. What if all the currency from every country in the world was valued the same? Is there any specific reason as to why countries in specific continents such as Africa or Asia are typically poorer and disgustingly incomparable to the United States Dollar? I proposed a theory that seems to make sense. Perhaps this is a way to protect our country from experiencing a global “Tragedy of the Commons” so-to-speak. Poorer countries rely on the United States as an economy of great fortitude to financially support them, by selling their exported goods of spices, roots, etc. If every country had access to purchasing the same goods and services that the United States does, perhaps the more populated countries would exhaust the resources. I’m not exactly advocating that poorer countries need to stay poor, but with a limited supply of resources around the orient, it’s difficult to make all goods accessible for every single country. I think that there should be a way to increase exports and limit the amount of food that the United States specifically gets, because compared to the rest of the world they have a surplus in terms of agricultural goods produced. This surplus needs to be allocated to foreign countries that suffer a deficit.
This imbalance of agricultural surplus and deficit dates back to the age of the Fertile Crescent, which is where moist/fertile and arable land resided in the Middle East. The Fertile Crescent was a place of massive agricultural surplus, and now it is an area of agricultural deficit. It was once arable land, and now it’s completely exhausted and the land isn’t cultivatable. At one time Australia was inhabited by Aboriginal Australian farmers that created agricultural surplus, so Australia was once a continent with very arable and cultivatable land.
