A shift away form the US dollar as the worlds reserve currency would  be devastating to our economy and possibly collapse our dollar. Hopefully they will not replace it with another Fiat currency system.

The first-mover advantage in scientific publication

Chapter 4, Section 3.3: First-Mover Advantage

Conclusions
In conclusion, the strong first-mover advantage predicted by theories of the scientific citation process seems to be quantitatively substantiated by empirical citation data, at least in some areas. The cynical observer would, it appears, have some justification in concluding that if you want to be well cited you are better off writing the first paper in such an area than writing the best. Other areas, by contrast, show no first-mover effect, which may
be an indication that those areas do not constitute selfcontained research fields as assumed by the theory. And even in cases where the first-mover effect is strong, a small number of later papers do seem buck the trend and attract significant attention in defiance of predictions. We tentatively suggest that the reader looking for true breakthroughs could do worse than keep an eye out for papers such as these.
