    Le dollar n'est pas une monnaie comme une autre, il est aussi une monnaie internationale. Ou plutôt il devient une monnaie internationale, chaque fois qu'il est transféré par les Etats-Unis au reste du monde. Cet article analyse toutes ces opérations qui sont regroupées dans la balance des paiements américaine et considère celle-ci comme le bilan d'une banque créatrice de monnaie. Il oppose ces mécanismes de création à ceux d'intermédiation qui sont habituellement privilégiés. Il poursuit ensuite l'analyse au niveau des stocks à travers la position financière internationale des Etats-Unis. Enfin il commente l'évolution de cette création de monnaie internationale par les Etats-Unis, en flux et en stocks, notamment l'impact de la crise dans les années 2008-2009.
