Theory of money as applied by the Fed (and other national banks). America's advantage. Boils down to military and money. Most countries are bought into this, preferring the security of the established US-stabilized system to keep their own power and wealth dynamics safe. Some don't, to varying degrees. China. Russia. Rogue nations are threats to profit, never existential threats to America. Stamping on them is good business, even if it costs lives. Projecting American power around the world keeps global confidence in American hegemony. Britain tagnuts onto this. Europe is complicit.
