Possible Means And Solutions For Avoiding Currency Wars
AbstractWhat is needed is a coordinated plan of action, involving all trading partners to ensure a balanced global recovery. The plan must address three interconnected issues: the exchange rate system, global imbalances and excessive reserve accumulation. Few solutions in response to these issues: - create an emergency markets reserve fund, from which member countries would be able to withdraw with no conditionality; - create a global governance mechanism to prevent countries from running excessive current account imbalances; - give surplus countries greater exchange rate flexibility; - enhance the role of the renminbi as an international currency; - strengthen the capacity of IMF to act as a lender of last resort, allowing it to lend to solvent countries against collaterals.
