This is a story that's not getting a lot of attention. But it's causing some who have heard about it some angst.
Russian President Dmitry Medvedev is proposing a new world currency to be the new standard. Displacing the U.S. dollar as the "gold standard."
Why he even had an example of the proposed new currency minted to show it off.
Medvedev says a loss of confidence in U.S. currency for global reserves and the interdependence of the world's economy means the time for a unified international currency has come.
