Antichrist's rise to power  

Crowns -- heads of the dragon

Dollar signs -- horns of the dragon 


In this chart the crowns (heads) represent governments, while the dollar signs (horns) represent economic powers; they are leaders of a plutonomy. The implication of Revelation is that each head has a horn, but there are three heads that have two horns.


The dragon shifts from economic leader to religious leader (the Pope), indicating that the balance of power shifts from horns to heads of the dragon, from an economically controlled government (plutonomy) to a religiously/politically controlled economy (fascism). 


The ten toes of Nebuchadnezzar's statue represent a single horn, seen at the bottom of this chart as dollar signs. Count the crowns and dollar signs in the chart. There are 8 heads and 11 horns. The 11th horn (top dollar sign) is the false prophet, who sponsors the religion/governmental of the antichrist (top crown).
