By Paul Walker 02/04/2014

In this audio from Eswar Prasad talks to Viv Davies about Prasad’s recent book, ‘The Dollar Trap: How the US dollar tightened its grip on global finance’, which examines how, paradoxically, in light of the financial crisis, the dollar continues to play a central role in the world economy and why it will remain the cornertsone of global finance for the forseeable future. They also discuss the current frameworks for international economic cooperation as well as currency wars, unconventional monetary policy and the prospects for the renminbi becoming the world’s reserve currency.
