How Global Currencies Work: Past, Present, and Future

Barry Eichengreen (), Arnaud Mehl () and Livia Chitu

in Economics Books from Princeton University Press

Abstract: At first glance, the modern history of the global economic system seems to support the long-held view that the leading world power’s currency—the British pound, the U.S. dollar, and perhaps someday the Chinese yuan—invariably dominates international trade and finance. In How Global Currencies Work, three noted economists provide a reassessment of this history and the theories behind the conventional wisdom.
