The Pacific Council is pleased to have convened a meeting with leading economist and author Professor Barry Eichengreen. We discussed the future of US economic influence and of the international monetary system in the context of the rise of developing economies such as China, India and Brazil. Our conversation explored the changing relative strength and influence of the US dollar as China expands the global presence of the RMB and as its economy continues to grow rapidly.

His most recent writings on the subject include Exorbitant Privilege: The Rise and Fall of the Dollar and the Future of the International Monetary System and Global Imbalances and the Lessons of Bretton Woods.
