AFAIK. The USA OTL bought a significant portion of the world's gold reserves, put them into their facility in Fort Knox, and then floated the dollar afterwards, effectively supplanting the Gold Standard for the USD because a ton of the world's gold supply is located in one place, and the floating of the USD meant that other currencies are then floated as a result.BTW, @Jakarta, is the currency of the CPS nations tied to the Japanese Yen whilst it is tied to gold in this timeline?
Ah. Well, it seems I got too excited then. I will put on hold the East Asian Coal and Steel Community, as even though I think it's coolest one of them all, it was also was my own personal idea (thus the least thought out) so I should leave it for later. Next year, along with the standardized containers, I will put it into the plan.
