Weak dollar strong euro? The international impact of EMU

Fred Bergsten
01 May 1998

The creation of the euro will be the most important development in the evolution of the international monetary system since the widespread adoption of flexible exchange rates in the early 1970s. It will almost certainly be the most important development for the monetary dimension of the system since the dollar became the world's top currency. The euro is set to topple the dollar from its position as dominant global currency, or at least match it, according to Fred Bergsten.
