Understanding Our World: The Almighty Dollar Still Rules the Roost and Nothing Else Comes Close

The Dollar Is Still King. How (in the World) Did That Happen?
is an absolutely seminal article by Peter S. Goodman
published today in the New York Times (February 22, 2019).

The dollar's preeminence permits (perhaps) a better understanding of our world
than most anything else found written or said in daily news reports or opinions.

Many would have us believe that the world turns on politics or religion. Not so.

Crunching the article's message to its essence, we refer to the song:

Money Makes the World Go 'Round!  (YouTube)
by Liza Minnelli and Joel Grey in the 1972 cinema film Cabaret
