GLOBAL FINANCE AS A COMMONS – GUARANTOR OR THREAT TO STABILITY?
Pavilion 3, Amphitheatre
Over the past half-century, policymakers have successfully created an international system of trade and finance that has spurred globalization and brought greater prosperity to large proportions of the world’s population. But if this same system is used as a principal weapon in political disputes, e.g. barring a country from the use of SWIFT, do we risk a fragmentation of global finance and a lessening of globalization’s benefits? How might these policies motivate the diversification of reserve currencies?
