  The End of Dollar Domination

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

The U.S. occupies a special place in the global economy. We hold the world’s reserve currency. The dollar dominates because the dollar denominates.


Everybody accepts U.S. dollars; everyone wants U.S. dollars. This gives the U.S. many advantages like lowered exchange rate risk and increased buying power, but this won’t last forever.


Historically, one country has held the dominant reserve currency for about 100 years (give or take 20 years). Although the U.S. was formally declared the reserve currency after World War II, it was informally used as the reserve currency since the 1920s after World War I.


That’s 100 years...


Again, these things don’t happen overnight. It’s a slow-moving transition that’s obvious only after a few decades have passed, but I think the days of the U.S. dollar as the world’s reserve currency are coming to an end.


This shouldn't be cause for fear or alarm as we're resilient. We'll tiptoe through these troubled times, and we'll emerge stronger as a result.


What’s more, I think we can do better.


The positive aspect of holding the world reserve currency is that the U.S. has been able to help provide stability and confidence in the financial system.


The negative aspect is that it concentrates power and influence in the U.S., sometimes at the expense of smaller and weaker nations.


Moreover, when the U.S. financial system looks shaky (as it has the past few days), it causes reverberations throughout the world.


I believe we’ll look back on the days of reserve currencies as a kind of “financial colonialism,” where one country had outsized power to exercise its will on smaller, weaker nations. I suspect we'll be ashamed of this period of U.S. history. We may even try to make reparations, but that day is likely far into the future.


Of one thing we can be sure... The days of the U.S. dollar's dominance will eventually come to an end. History shows us it's not a question of if, but when.


When the U.S. dollar is dethroned, what will replace it?” -  John Hargrave

Thank you for sharing this thought-provoking post about the potential end of dollar domination. It's essential to consider the implications and future of the global reserve currency. Your analysis of the advantages and disadvantages of the U.S. dollar as the reserve currency is insightful and raises important points about power dynamics and financial stability. Your optimism and belief in our resilience as a nation are inspiring. It's crucial to reflect on the impact of financial systems on smaller and weaker nations and strive for a more balanced future. The transition may not be immediate, but your reminder that change is inevitable prompts us to consider what will come next. Thank you for initiating this valuable discussion!
