REUTERS/Jon WooThe world monetary order is changing. Slowly but steadily, global trade and currency markets are becoming less dollar-centric. Formerly marginal currencies such as the Chinese yuan now stand to become serious competitors to U. S. dollar dominance.
Could gold also begin to emerge as a leading currency in world trade?

Darrell Metcalf alleged that Justin Timberlake's FutureSex/LoveShow Tour, pictured here in Exhibit B, infringed on his patent for "large-audience displays." (credit: Court documents)
It's getting easier than ever for defendants to win fees in patent cases, especially against "non-practicing entities" with no products. But don't tell that to pop stars Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears.
The two celebrities and their respective production companies were sued by an entity called Large Audience Displays Systems, LLC (or LADS for short) back in 2009.
The patent-holder who came after them is Darrell Metcalf, the inventor of US Patent No. 6,669,346, which describes a way of displaying video images on massive, arced screens.
Edward Wong/South China Morning PostA senior expatriate banker who rammed his Ferrari into a security guard in a fatal accident last year was yesterday jailed for 21 months and suspended from driving for five years after his claims of mechanical failure were rejected.
The District Court found Robert Ebert, Deutsche Bank’s former head of equities for Asia Pacific, guilty of dangerous driving causing death after his black Ferrari 458 Spider hit Ku Lap-chi, 53, on June 9 last year at the Waterfront car park in Kowloon Station.
The offence was punishable by 10 years’ imprisonment.
Judge Amanda Woodcock stressed it was a difficult sentence to pass as Ebert was not a criminal, but the crash had caused death and great deal of distress.
It was “a significant fall from grace”, she added, for Ebert, 49, to suffer a serious and momentary error of judgment when he had an excellent driving record and a clear criminal record.

Mitigation letters presented the 32-year driver as an upstanding, honest, and charitable man who showed deep remorse.
But the judge said the sentence was aggravated by his excessive speed as he had switched his car to race mode and lost control.
Ebert was heading to his office at the International Commerce Centre on the day of the accident when his Ferrari sped more than three times the legal limit before hitting a curb as he was about to make a turn.
A driver said he saw the car flying into the car park, hitting the railing, splitting water barriers and running into Ku, who died hours later.
Ebert did not deny he was speeding but he blamed the accident on “a catastrophic failure of the brakes”.

Prosecutors, however, argued the Ferrari showed no sign of braking problems in its journey from Ebert’s home on The Peak.

But changing the time of its report may only end up in more volatility for the stock.
