The Future of the International Monetary System

Stock.xchngThe World Economic Forum has just released the study, “Euro, Dollar, Yuan Uncertainties: Scenarios on the Future of the International Monetary System.”

The three scenarios exposed are as follows:

-Return to Regionalism

-G2 Rebalancing

-Reconciling a Two-speed World

These scenarios are based on a series of strategic conversations among industry, public policy and academic leaders from around the world. They provide a tool to foster strategic thinking about the challenges so as to stretch the boundaries of what is perceived as possible and to open up new avenues of potential solutions.
