Niall Ferguson (‘Ascent of Money’): The US Dollar Is Dying a Slow Death; There Has Been No Stock Market Rally

The Weakening Dollar Is Dying A Slow Death.

“It’s clear where we’re headed,” says Niall Ferguson, author of The Ascent of Money. “Ten years from now there will be more than one international reserve currency,” he tells Tech Ticker.

Ferguson dismisses the dollar loyalists, citing the British pound – the last international reserve currency – as his example. “These things don’t last forever” but don’t expect it to happen overnight. “It’s a long multi-decade process,” he states. Even with the dollar near a 14-month low against the Euro, he claims it’s not without historical precedence for the greenback to lose “another 20%” this year.

For international investors the loss is enough to offset this year’s stock market gains. Not exactly great motivation for foreigners to keep buying the almighty dollar.
