Nothing Lasts Forever; World Bank Ex-Chief Economist Calls For End To Dollar As Reserve Currency

Via Zerohedge Jan 29, 2014
In the past we have discussed at length the inevitable demise of the USD as the world’s reserve currency noting that nothing lasts forever. However, when former World Bank chief economist Justin Yifu Lin warns that “the dominance of the greenback is the root cause of global financial and economic crises,” we suspect the world will begin to listen (especially the Chinese. Lin, now – notably – an adviser to the Chinese government, concludes that internationalizing the Chinese currency is not the answer (preferring a basket approach) but ominously concludes, “the solution to this is to replace the national currency with a global currency,” as it will create more stable global financial system.

Nothing lasts forever… (especially in light of China’s earlier comments [21])

Via China Daily,

The World Bank’s former chief economist wants to replace the US dollar with a single global super-currency, saying it will create a more stable global financial system.

“The dominance of the greenback is the root cause of global financial and economic crises,” Justin Yifu Lin told Bruegel, a Brussels-based policy-research think tank. “The solution to this is to replace the national currency with a global currency.”

Lin, now a professor at Peking University and a leading adviser to the Chinese government, said expanding the basket of major reserve currencies — the dollar, the euro, the Japanese yen and pound sterling — will not address the consequences of a financial crisis. Internationalizing the Chinese currency is not the answer, either, he said.

China can only play a supporting role in realizing the plans,” Lin said. “The urgent thing is for the US and Europe to endorse these plans. And I think the G20 is an ideal platform to discuss the ideas,” he said, referring to the group of finance ministers and central bank governors from 20 major economies.

The concept of a global “super currency” tied to a basket of currencies has been periodically discussed by world leaders as well as endorsed by 2001 Nobel Memorial Prize-winner Joseph Stiglitz. A super currency could also be tied to a single currency, but the interconnectedness of world financial markets and concerns about the volatility that can occur as a result of the system being tied to one currency have made this idea less popular.


Arguments in favor of a global currency resurfaced during October’s US budget impasse, which forced the government to shut down (as we noted here).

“It is perhaps a good time for the befuddled world to start considering building a de-Americanized world,” a Xinhua News Agency commentary said on Oct 14. The piece argued that creating a new international reserve currency to replace reliance on the greenback, would prevent government gridlock in Washington from affecting the rest of the world.

In March 2009, China’s central bank governor, Zhou Xiaochuan, called for the creation of a new “super-sovereign reserve currency” to replace the dollar. In a paper published on the People’s Bank of China’s website, Zhou said an international reserve currency “disconnected from individual nations” and “able to remain stable in the long run” would benefit the global financial system more than current reliance on the dollar.

Of course, as we are seeing now, it’s not just the Chinese that are concerned…

On that note, David Bloom, global head of FX research at HSBC, said US monetary policy change “will bring fluctuations for emerging countries’ currencies and lead to financial instability”.

Chen Wenling, chief economist at the China Center for International Economic Exchanges, a government think-tank, said, “A supranational currency may be a new direction for development of the global financial system. It also requires different countries to cooperate in coordinating macroeconomic policies.”

Bloom and Chen both said China needs to play a more important role in global financial governance. But Bloom said it is difficult for international financial organizations to reach a consistent conclusion on how to improve the foreign exchange system.

He said the renminbi is predicted to be stronger this year, even against an appreciating US dollar, and internationalization of China’s currency will accelerate when the government decides to further open the capital market.

Of course implementation will be painful…

Pierre Defraigne, executive director of the Madariaga College of Europe Foundation in Brussels, said of Lin’s infrastructure proposal, “It is excellent, but the problem is how to implement these plans to link those countries that need such infrastructural construction and those with enough foreign reserves, by using an effective global mechanism.”

As we noted previously, the muddle-through is over and there is no painless solution left…

Michal Krol, a researcher at the Brussels-based European Center for International Political Economy, said …

I don’t think that the largest economies and their currencies are at this moment ready for the introduction of a supranational currency,” Krol said. “Neither the EU nor China have financial markets and monetary systems yet that are sound, solid, predictable and well functioning to be the cornerstone for a global system. But, indeed, it is time to formulate the fundamentals for global monetary governance.”

    Nice article, this is about the globalist plans to replace ALL currencies, The world’s main reserve currencies at the moment are the dollar, the euro and pound sterling.

    China is about to go down the toilet, buried under a sea of debt as is the euro zone and the US, makes perfect sense, crash the global economy for good to make way for a super single global currency, so the super-rich elite can have TOTAL control of our lives.

    Forget petty nationalist rivalries, this goes beyond that.

    Oh by the way, Larry Silverstein has just invested $2 Billion+ into the new China free-trade zone, he always makes a good bet. Just in time for the global financial economy to collapse and now he’s ready for the new global order where the super rich 0.5% elite will become demi-gods.

    Checkout Silversteins other great bet, when he bought up the entire world trade center complex 6 weeks before 9/11 with a special $3 billion insurance policy just in case “the towers were destroyed”…. worked out quite well for him. He also didn’t turn up for hi daily dinner at the trade center restaurant on the day they were destroyed, as did his close friends and family that also worked there. (and gained the title ‘Lucky Larry).

    The globalist agenda have their plans laid, give it a few months or so and see what happens…
