In an seemingly innocuous...

...yet highly pretentious article (read below...I have no idea how that sentence cleared the editors), it appears the IMF has decided to play a game that is analogous to the U.K.'s antiquated Knighting system e.g. granting a title that is meaningless but somehow bestows promotional value to the recipient.

There are no true "reserve currencies" without a powerful military.  It has always been thus.  A "new era in world money"?


LONDON (MarketWatch) — The Australian and Canadian dollars, the
world’s leading commodity-rich currencies, are being formally
classified as official reserve assets by the International Monetary
Fund, marking the onset of a multi-currency reserve system and a new
era in world money.

In a seemingly innocuous yet highly portentous move, the IMF is asking
member countries from next year to include the Australian (US:AUDUSD)
and Canadian dollars (US:USDCAD) in statistics supplied by
reserve-holding nations on the make-up of their central banks’ foreign
exchange reserves. The technical-sounding measure, reflecting growing
diversification of the world’s $10.5 trillion of reserves, is likely
over time to exert wide-ranging impact on world bond and equity

I have been browsing online more than 2 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all website owners and
bloggers made good content as you did, the net
will be a lot more useful than ever before.
