Bude americký dolar nadále dominantní světovou rezervní měnou?

Will Us Dollar Continue as the World Most Important Reserve Currency?

Kamil Janáček and Lubos Komarek ()

Politická ekonomie, 2012, vol. 2012, issue 1, 3-19

Abstract: The article aims to show both the still very strong position of the USD in the global financial system and assess its likely future position. It illustrates that although the U.S. is no longer the dominant global economic power that it was when the dollar became the global reserve currency, the dollar so far is not in immediate danger of losing its privileged position. Despite the challenges facing the USD as the global reserve currency, it continues its dominant role since no other currency has shown itself strong and credible enough to replace it. Considerations on replacing dollar with other currency are no more than a speculation.
