… it’s difficult to lay out a convincing scenario where the dollar is displaced any time in the foreseeable future as the dominant reserve currency. In international finance everything is relative. It’s not that the U.S. has especially good policies or growth prospects, it’s that the rest of the world looks weaker when it comes to putting together the powerful financial institutions that the U.S. has…. There are times, like during the debt-ceiling debate, when that trust is called into question. But the world has no other place to go, especially during times of global financial market turbulence or, paradoxically, even turbulence originating in the U.S.


Eswar Prasad is an Indian economist. As of 2018, he is the Tolani Senior Professor of Trade Policy at Cornell University and a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution. He held the New Century Chair in International Economics at Brookings.


In October 2016, Prasad published Gaining Currency: The Rise of the Renminbi. As the date for the designation of the Chinese renminbi as an IMF major global currency also approached, Prasad


In The Dollar Trap (2014), Prasad examined the U.S. dollar’s continuing dominance in the world economy following the global financial crisis. In an interview with the Wall Street Journal, he stated:

Prasad was asked in 2014 to comment on whether he believed President Barack Obama would impose harsher sanctions against Russia for their aggression against Ukraine and annexation of Crimea. Prasad said harsher sanctions at this time were unlikely.


In a series of papers written with Michael Keane in the early 2000s, Prasad argued that the Polish model of transition, which involved rapid liberalization of prices and opening to trade (“The Big Bang”), combined with very gradual privatization of state enterprises and a generous system of social transfers, led to both superior economic growth and less inequality than occurred in other former communist countries.


Prasad began his studies in economics at the University of Madras (B.A., 1985), and continued at Brown University (M.A., 1986) and the University of Chicago (Ph.D., 1992).
