Inhalt:
Growing international payments imbalances (symbolised most notably by a ballooning US current account deficit), and ongoing volatility in exchange rates have become features of the current international monetary system. Not surprisingly, many economists have raised concerns about the sustainability of these imbalances and their implications for the current international monetary system. Specifically, they have raised concerns about the fragility of the US dollar, both in terms of its current value, and as an anchor for the international monetary system. This paper examines two alternative arguments suggesting that the current international monetary system has in fact quite strong material foundations. These arguments are known as the New Bretton Woods thesis, and the Dark Matter thesis. After examining the two arguments, the paper identifies a shared limitation in their attempts to understand global economic processes through national units of analysis. The paper opens up a third possible explanation for the current monetary system′s stability, namely the anchoring role being played by financial derivatives.
