It is interesting how the dollar is having its falls and rebounding during the last two years.

The troubled economies of Western Europe and the U.S. would of course greatly impact the emerging markets, especially those in Asia, since demand for goods are lower.

Many commodities, except oil, have rebounded to what they were before the downgrade, and I think if the economic conditions do not improve a year after the next election, and the debt increases, I think that might be a signal for other nations who buy Treasuries, to move into more commodities, and other currencies, perhaps a floating Yuan?

I don't think so at all. The inflation emerging markets have experienced due to stimulus money is evaporating already, coffee, cotton, and oil prices are already falling. Once the price collapse of inflated real estate in China, Malaysia, et al begins, the currencies of those countries will also collapse. The Loonie and the Aussie look toppy already.
Then we will start experiencing a true 1930s style world deflationary collapse across the board as commodities are not bought but sold as are stocks in exchanges for dollars to pay debt. The value of the commodities can easily fall with weak currencies, the value of the debt in dollars, won't. Just ask the Greeks.

I watched CSPAN this weekend abouth this very issue. I found it mind-blowing that the swiss are fighting to keep the price of the franc down, while the US stuggles to keep the price of the dollar up, though this will help raise the price. This is good for all countries currencies, this means all currencies should see a slight rise in the coming months. I also heard something about Russian technology is now starting to succeed that of China, and other technological countries. Which should mean good news for the Russians considering how far they have come in the last couple decades. But I do not think it is a good idea that the Russians have a hold on technological advances considering their poloitical positioning on certian topics conflicting with most other countries (including that of the US). But all of this combines seems like a promising future for globalization.

Upon reading this article, I've noticed that Europe and the U.S are experiencing a bit of mayhem (Greece for example). And all along, what are the Chinese doing? Waiting for us to collapse! Now this article was written in 2011 of September. We are now in October of 2012 and beginning to see the economy finally breathing. The housing market is looking a whole lot better thanks to mortgage rates being lowered. As well as homeowners are just willing to sell their homes with a fixed rate. But, as Fannie Mae reported: about 33% expect mortgage rates to increase in the next year. I know that my folks are trying to get a home before the election at a rate of 3.25%, because after that election, rates are expected to increase.
