World Wide Web of Trade

I’ve found a couple different articles that talk about expanding the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) to include Japan and the creation of a fiscal union within NAFTA and (possibly) eventually a common currency, the “yelarso” (yen+dollar+peso). There’s also the possibility of adopting a Transatlantic Free Trade Agreement (TAFTA) in addition to the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) which America is pushing pretty hard right now. TAFTA and TPP would bind the U.S. dollar to the Euro and the economies of Peru, Chile, New Zealand, Australia, Brunei, Singapore, Malaysia, and Vietnam, with the possibility that Japan and South Korea might also join.
