The front-page commentary in the overseas edition of the People's Daily said that Asian and European countries should banish the U.S. dollar from their direct trade relations for a start, relying only on their own currencies.

FYI: U.S. private consumption peak at the rate of 9.1 trillions dollars a year with a population of 300 millions. The rest of 1.3 billions Chinese and 1.2 billions Indian combining about 2.5 billion Chindian only consume about $1.8 trillions dollar. The abrupt vacuum of U.S. consumer slow down is not easy to be replaced anytime soon. The world leaders need to get over the denial stage and admit that we are in at least a deep recession if not a looming depression.
US might be facing with limited choice in paying off its $10 trillion dollars debt = 620 miles of $100 dollar bills stacking side by side.
