The U.S. dollar s dominance seems under threat. The near collapse of the U.S. financial system in 2008 2009, political paralysis that has blocked effective policymaking, and emerging competitors such as the Chinese renminbi have heightened speculation about the dollar s looming displacement as the main reserve currency. Yet, as "The Dollar Trap" powerfully argues, the financial crisis, a dysfunctional international monetary system, and U.S. policies have paradoxically strengthened the dollar s importance.
Eswar Prasad examines how the dollar came to have a central role in the world economy and demonstrates that it will remain the cornerstone of global finance for the foreseeable future. Marshaling a range of arguments and data, and drawing on the latest research, Prasad shows why it will be difficult to dislodge the dollar-centric system. With vast amounts of foreign financial capital locked up in dollar assets, including U.S. government securities, other countries now have a strong incentive to prevent a dollar crash.
Prasad takes the reader through key contemporary issues in international finance including the growing economic influence of emerging markets, the currency wars, the complexities of the China-U.S. relationship, and the role of institutions like the International Monetary Fund and offers new ideas for fixing the flawed monetary system. Readers are also given a rare look into some of the intrigue and backdoor scheming in the corridors of international finance.
"The Dollar Trap" offers a panoramic analysis of the fragile state of global finance and makes a compelling case that, despite all its flaws, the dollar will remain the ultimate safe-haven currency."
Описание: Why do so many Americans practice martial arts? How did kung fu get its own movie genre? What makes mixed martial arts so popular? This book answers these questions for the first time with historical research.At the turn of the 20th century, the United States enjoyed a time of prosperity but feared that men were becoming soft. At the same time, the Japanese government sponsored research to develop the best fighting techniques for its new empire. Before World War II, American men boxed and Japanese men practiced judo and karate. Postwar Americans began adopting Chinese, Brazilian, Filipino and other fighting styles, in the process establishing a masculine subculture based on physical and social power.The rise of Asian martial arts in America is a fascinating untold story of modern history, from the origin of karate uniforms to the first martial arts themed birthday party. The cast of characters includes circus strongmen, professional cage fighters, an award winning comic book artist, the inventors of judo, aikido and Cornflakes, and Count Juan Raphael Dante, a Chicago hairdresser and used car salesman with the ""Deadliest Hands in the World."" Readers will never look at taekwondo class the same way again.
Описание: In an 1873 decision, the Supreme Court by a 5-4 vote--highly unusual in those days--upheld a bribery-procured Louisiana slaughterhouse monopoly that had been challenged by a group of butchers whose businesses were jeopardized. By that decision (called the "Slaughter-House "cases), one of the most important and beneficial products of the Civil War--a revolutionary constitutional provision intended to protect civil rights against oppression by state governments--was nullified. The repercussions of that unfortunate decision are still being felt today. In "Death-Grip: Loosening the Law's Stranglehold over Economic Liberty, " Clint Bolick looks at the state of economic liberty in our country today and explains how the consequences of "Slaughter-House" continue to manifest themselves to this day. Bolick examines the history and intent of the Fourteenth Amendment and the judicial nullification of the privileges (or immunities) clause in the "Slaughter-House "cases and their aftermath through the years. Looking at more recent decisions, he sees hope in the current campaign to restore economic liberty as a fundamental civil right. Armed with knowledge, passion, and commitment to principle, he concludes, we can win the battle to restore economic liberty once and for all.
