Have to say Aazadan you certainly seem to have put some thought to the matter.
Don't know about two different currencies through, seems to me it would only create more of a social divide between the haves and the have not's in our society and would be open to all types of abuse. Then again it not like that's not already an issue with our current systems and financial institutions.

World currency has collapsed several times, and the only reason it didn't in 2008 was the bailouts, and a lot of financial shenagery. the Bankers ICBs learned nothing and jumped back into the whole bubble economy.
I imagine the fact that since Human beings would have to be involved in the creation and maintenance of such a system that in itself opens it up to abuse simply because people can be corrupted.
Also i think a two currency system would divide the classes even further apart than they already are.
One man´s debt is another man´s wealth. The US debt exists in the treasury bonds, which are bought by different investors, mostly banks, as well as other countries.
In 08, just one large bank failed. Look where this lead to. If the debt was erased it could crash near to every institution holding the debt currently, which would possibly to lead to the crashing of every economy in the world.
Unless some solution is found, which is very unlikely due to private interests (nobody wants to lose their "investment" , there is no way to fix the current system. The whole economics system would need to be restructured in order for the debt to be erased, a new way of economic system to work needs to be found.
Otherwise resetting the debt would take us back to middle ages.

Rich people are obviously going to accumulate the more desirable of the two currencies. Poor people will be left the other which will probably amount to nothing more than food, water or power stamps.
Then there is the black market implications, poor people will not be allowed to purchase luxury items or alcohol tobacco or drugs essentially because the don't have the proper currency, or means to accumulate it, or enough of it.
Then we have bank accounts, these days the complicated enough! What about with two currencies do you have separate accounts for each currency? Are the currencies legally interchangeable? Is there an exchange rate? Or will that also become a black market issue?

Again buddy you seem to have thought about it in detail but I imagine the solutions to our monetary and financial dilemmas involve simplifying our banking systems. Your solution, in my opinion, will only add more fuel to the fire so to speak!
But what do I know, personally i long for revolution, with a little justice and retribution thrown in for good measure.edit on 26-3-2014 by andy06shake because: (no reason given)
the progressive societies, the leaders, the civilized and forward thinking of the entire world...chose to invest NOT in programs that contribute to the building of something great and tangible,
but instead chose to invest our futures, and that of our children in...debt.
What insane and twisted mind could ever have conceived of a debt based economy as anything other than a mill-stone and nightmare for the Human psyche and spirit?
We ought to have done better for our species than this mad system based on nothing at all except ease the lives of a measly few at the expense of most.

"The problem isn't just too much debt but lack of resources and environmental damage (including global warming)."
No buddy the problem is exactly to much debt! You see when our financial institutions lend 90% on the dollar/pound that's a problem as any morron could tell you this does nothing more than create a system that can only fail in the end. hence our current predicament.
Banker scum are the issue, remove them and remove the problem!

ALL THE GLOBAL ELITES IN POWER WANT A TOTAL MELT DOWN AND WWIII.
They've worked hard setting it up.
They are determined to see it through.
They are licking their chops over the bloodshed, anarchy, chaos, suffering.
They are evil to the core.
The biggest "terrorist" threat to the People in the U.S.A. is not Ossama bin Laden or any other so-called "terrorist" leader or group. While Americans are preoccupied with a rigged phony election and "wars for PROFIT" in Iraq and Afghanistan, the Illuminati controlled Federal Reserve "terrorists" are orchestrating a financial collapse in the U.S.A. that could destroy the U.S.A. and other countries in the world much more than the Great Depression of 1929-32.
The biggest threat to America are the "terrorists" that are conducting "FINANCIAL WARFARE" in America and other countries of the world, possibly leading to s Global Financial Meltdown. These "terrorists" are a small covert, clandestine, London, European and American based organization operating in the U.S.A. as a supposed "U.S. government agency".
They're called the Federal Reserve, which is controlled by the most EVIL "terrorists" in the world, the "Elite terrorist" group of criminals, crooks and killers, known as the Illuminati. By the President and Vice president of the U.S.A. and every Senator and Congressman making it appear that the Federal Reserve is a Government Agency, when it's an independent PRIVATE company, should show the American citizens the extent to which this most

"The Federal Reserve definitely caused the Great depression by contracting the amount of currency in circulation by one-third from 1929 to 1933." ~ Milton Friedman, Nobel Prize winning economist
Rakovsky refers to the 1929 Crash and Great Depression as an "American revolution." It was deliberately precipitated by the Illuminati for profit, to break the "classical American," and to take political power. The Red Symphony Part 2
The Global Financial Crisis (GFC) was a deliberately engineered event in accordance with strategic planning based on the Pike plans for the weakening of the world’s economic structure. The aim is to collapse the EU financially so the world financial controls are brought into play and one world currency is issued so that it can be controlled.
It has all been organized by these satanic tools to bring all mankind into slavery and they are stupid enough to think they can control it. The US is being destroyed by its banking system and is deliberately destroying itself. All of this was engendered for a specific end to commence in earnest from 2010.
Between 2010 and 2012 the world’s finances will be in an engineered crisis to enable world government using the so-called Global Warming Crisis and the fraudulent science to enforce population controls and social change to destroy the family and induce satanic controls in accord with the plans. The result will be systematic world depopulation; in other words, mass murder on a scale never before seen.
