I saw this on HuffPo earlier today also. What people have been saying is that we will convert to a regional currency and then after that those regional currencies will be combined to make up one world currency. Europe is already a step ahead of us by combining their currencies into the Euro. The rumor is that North America will become a currency called the Amero.
I've been relaying these stories about a regional currency for years to friends but they never believed me. But now that the world is experiencing a global meltdown, suddenly the ideas don't seem so far fetched. That being said I think a global currency is decades away. But I do think within the next 10 or 15 years (maybe a lot sooner) North America will have the Amero has a currency. They will phase it in like Europe did, by allowing countries to have both the Euro and their native currency. So we would still have the dollar system, but the Amero system would be there too - same exact way they did it in Europe.
