Our concern for the increase in terrorism across the world should force us to examine areas of causation other than the traditional ones of states or other groups out to achieve particular ends.
One such area of neglect is the international financial system from which criminal activity is often fostered.
It should be salutary at this stage to remind ourselves that the present currencies of the world had to replace multiple national currencies in the interest of orderly commerce at home and of international trade.
Since all nations have to trade in the same markets, the introduction of one international currency would go a long way towards focusing our minds to common interests and a deal more constructive towards eliminating the conditions in individual countries that provide the breeding grounds for the growth of terrorism.
We need to focus attention on the mutual interest of all nations to feed, clothe, house and provide adequate protection for the peoples of the world.
A more streamlined international financial system would expedite these aims.
