This paper contrasts two view of international currency status: an “old view” in which network increasing returns are sufficiently strong that one currency dominates international markets at any point in time, versus a “new view” in which networks are open and several international currencies can coexist. It marshals historical evidence in favor of the “new view” and suggests that several national currencies, most plausibly the U.S. dollar and Chinese renminbi, are likely to share this international currency role in the not-too-distant future.
