Does that mean that Tunisian currency is stronger than US's? No! Until the term "petropound" enters the vernacular as the term "petrodollar" is now, you don't have the strongest currency. Even BP buys oil with dollars, of which they must have on reserve. THAT is called dollar hegemony.

You still buy insurance, and not from Tunisia. Who paid when your shuttles exploded? Who do you trust? Britain took your premiums, and will continue to take your premiums. You have no trade with Tunisia. Britain has as many Mcdonald's, KFCs, Pizza Huts per 100,000 people as the USA. What the UK has in the USA is not a closely guarded secret, but it's a whole lot more than you think or know. Do you have any idea how many Brits died in the WTC? They were not there as tourists. The Americans are a highly industrious people, they work hard and are very productive. They work for themselves and Britain, have since they were picking cotton for the English textile industry and buying Chippendale furniture to copy. The UK has invested wisely, and not in Tunisia. The pound is still the strongest unit of currency in the world. $1.80 to the £1.00. We are but 4 states to your 50. Just rubbing it in.
