Description

In a world where banks fail and governments go bankrupt, can we stop the cycle of boom and bust? Many argue that the introduction of a global currency would be a step in this direction. Others point out that the US dollar is already our global currency. But in 2008 the weakness of this system was revealed as the US economic recession dragged the rest of the world down with it. In this program we explore the idea of a global currency. Featuring perspectives from the world's biggest monetary players, this is a fascinating examination of the strengths and weaknesses of our economic system.
