Canada - the world's next superpower than the US?
Since Iceland's financial collapse in 2008, the state has been debated whether he could stay with a crown or adopt the currency of another country.
Seems to be the obvious choice for Iceland, for example, oil-rich Norway, or maybe even join the European Union and adopt the euro.
But another currency in the debate. And that "the Canadian dollar."Small
True: Iceland adopted the Canadian dollar the official currency.
There are examples, of course - El Salvador, Ecuador has also adopted the dollar in the past - and, on paper, a decision made sense, both in Canada and Iceland. Iceland was the coin under the supervision of the Central Bank is very strong. Canada will be the impact on the Arctic region. And it will probably increase the foreign trade of both countries.
And may be Canada.
On Friday, Alan Bones, Canada's ambassador to Iceland, "which we depend heavily on the nature of the final agreement of the expectations of the two countries. But passed just one side of the Canadian dollar from Iceland, where apparently no input into monetary policy, then We will certainly discuss the issue openly. "
Therefore, should the U.S. worry? If Canada is truly rising imperial power?
We have a closer look at our neighbors to the north, and that's what we found: Canada has the 10th largest economy in the world. The unemployment rate is 7.6%, compared to our 8.3. Canada has three times (Eh!) rating. And after the U.S. delayed the Keystone pipeline, was Prime Minister Stephen Harper, who (is Canada's sixth largest oil nation in the world) to China, its oil on the Pacific coast to discuss - where China's waiting ships.
But perhaps the worst thing is: A person who made the story points out, is Canadian. They really are everywhere.
Do you think Canada can actually be a world power? U.S. should be concerned that Canada will flee to other countries?
