New Global Reserve Currency needed?
Prof. Niall Ferguson
Today's economic recession with all its social consequences was caused by financially irresponsible behavior of US regulators, banks, companies and consumers. Having said that, it is remarkable and unfair that the crisis is having a more severe impact upon the rest of the world than it has on the US itself.
The US are fixing their problems by increasing the federal deficit and paying for this by submitting new US government bonds and printing dollars. So basically by more of the same overspending.
It's time the greenback is replaced by a new global reserve currency owned by a more responsible and impartial institution.
