Chess and the Global Economy

Fred Cederholm has been thinking hard about chess and the economy. He writes:

In chess and global affairs, there is really only one king, and that king must be free to move and to dominate everything else on the board/planet. The one true king of the planet transcends individuals, nation states, or governmental collectives. Since the Great Depression of the 1930’s, we have witnessed the evolution of a new dichotomy in the battle of the two kings. I refer to the US Dollar and oil. What will be the one true “King of the World"?

If you ask me, I reckon Fred's thinking too hard.
