The Economics of Systemic Disorder: Roots of and Remedies for Unsustainable Monetary Imbalances
What are the principal steps to a truly new international economic order, which would structurally eradicate global monetary imbalances, namely crises due to the intrinsic properties of the current economic system? Why should an international currency unit (f. i. the “renewed” Special Drawing Rights (SDR)) issued by a so called “Central Bank of Central Banks” (f. i. the “reformed” International Monetary Fund (IMF)) cure many sources of disorders and structural imbalances? The article deals precisely with these ‘evergreen’ concerns from an innovative methodological as well as argumentative perspective. In the last sections, we analyze the intrinsic faults of the Euro Area case and focus on the impact of the Euro currency in terms of wide spreading trade, growth and debt imbalances. As we will see, the durability of the Eurozone as a whole is threatened not only by the intrinsic faults of the current international economic order (Sections I.–IV.), but also by the ‘one-size-fits-all’ approach underlying monetary unification (Section V.).
