The relative economic decline of the US has led many economists and
policymakers to question the US dollar's position as the world's anchor
currency. Suggested alternatives range from a global reserve system to even a

only added to the expectation of a shift in the international monetary system,
we believe the US
will remain the dominant
global currency
for a long time to come.

    If we do not address our debt and spending, it will not matter - we will lose
