Title:An alternative perspective on global imbalances and international reserve currencies PDF Logo
Authors:Kregel, Jan
Issue Date:2010
Series/Report no.:Public policy brief // Jerome Levy Economics Institute of Bard College 116
Abstract:The stability of the international reserve currency's purchasing power is less a question of what serves as that currency and more a question of the international adjustment mechanism, as well as the compatibility of export-led development strategies with international payment balances. According to Senior Scholar Jan Kregel, export-led growth and free capital flows are the real causes of sustained international imbalances. The only way out of this predicament is to shift to domestic demand-led development strategies - and capital flows will have to be part of the solution.
