Why is the dollar so powerful?

For more than seven decades, the United States dollar has been the world’s reserve currency, with a majority of international transactions using the greenback. CNBC’s Uptin Saiidi explains how it became so strong and explores whether its position could be threatened.

A truly global reserve currency cannot and should not have unfair advantage to any single country and is the primary cause of global imbalance.

AcidBot66 says:

America has proved to be arrogant, selfish, war prone and its pursuit for world dominance at any cost a real disgrace for humankind.
An increasing number of nations are avoiding the American currency as America's global influence decays incessantly.
Trump may well be the best thing to happen to humanity since the KT Event that killed the Dinosaurs 65 million years ago.
The world is in a very solid path to do away with selfish Self Proclaimed Exceptional America without having to fire a single shot.

Dollar is finished

It seems paper money is a con

franwex says:

Reason is because it is surprisingly stable compared to other currencies. It’s basically like a Swiss Franc, but there are a lot more dollars available and more easy to get.

Ron Rogers says:

It’s because the USA is the largest, most stable economy in the world because of the people of the US. We are the most dedicated workers and generous people in history despite leaving the gold standard.
