The head of the International Monetary Fund recently suggested that a global reserve currency “would limit the extent to which the international monetary system as a whole depends on the policies and conditions of a single, albeit dominant, country.” In last week’s CI CyberNews CyberPoll, we asked readers if they would support an alternative to the U.S. dollar.
Most of the survey participants (69.2%) answered no, while 23.1% answered yes. The remaining respondents (7.7%) are unsure. Comments included:
“Who would control the ‘global reserve currency?’ The UN? The IMF? The world bank? Didn’t work out so well with the Euro. Ask Germany about Greece.”
“We’re moving invariably toward a global world where our borders should not impact our progress. This would just be another step in the direction of advancing as a human race rather than politico-nationally.”
