Can the Yuan Challenge the Dollar for Monetary Supremacy?

October 9, 2015 Vancouver, BC

The UBC Institute of Asian Research and the UBC Political Science Department’s Distinguished Speaker Series present a talk by Prof. Benjamin Jerry Cohen of the University of California, Santa Barbara. Prof. Cohen discusses his views on the question, 'Can the Yuan Challenge the Dollar for Monetary Supremacy?' 

The US dollar has long been the dominant currency in the international monetary system, providing great geopolitical advantages to the United States. Today, many observers predict that China's yuan is destined to surpass America's greenback, perhaps even before the end of the present decade. Benjamin Cohen, however, disagrees.
