2. Development of Today’s International

Monetary System

• The value of SDRs is determined by a weighted

average of a basket of four currencies: the U.S.

dollar, Japanese yen, European Union’s euro, and

the British pound.

• After the 1997-98 Asian financial crisis, the IMF has

worked on policies to overcome or even prevent

future crises.

• Another creation of the Bretton Woods Agreement

was the International Bank for Reconstruction

and Development (World Bank), supporting

economic development and poverty reduction.

Monetary System

• Two kinds of currency floats encompass free (clean)

float (allows no government intervention) and

managed (dirty) float (allows limited government

intervention).

• In March 1973, the major currencies began to float

in the foreign exchange markets.

• Today, the global economy is dominated by three

major currency blocs: The U.S. dollar, the EU’s euro,

the British pound, the Chinese yuan, and the

Japanese yen.

4. Balance of Payments

The balance of payment (BOP) of a nation

summarizes all the transactions that take place

between its residents and the residents of other

countries over a specified time period, usually a

month, quarter, or year.

• The BOP transactions contain three categories (see

Exhibit 3-5):

– Current account

– Capital account

– Official reserves
