Let's assume for a moment that we are in the protean stages of a new world currency; that the G20's moves this time last week are laying the ground for its special drawing rights to replace the dollar as the international reserve currency. On that basis which of these two scenarios would you feel more uncomfortable with:
1. That a shadowy sect of global leaders are conspiring together to set up this new world currency; or that,
2. Instead, clueless politicians are sleepwalking into this, not knowing precisely what they are doing.
The conspiracy theories that surround the SDRs usually assume the first scenario, and indeed the events of the past couple of weeks seem to bear this out. First you had the People's Bank of China surreptitiously publishing a discussion paper on the notion of replacing the dollar as the international reserve currency with SDRs. Then US Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner appeared to acquiesce to such suggestions. Then, last week, you had the decision to issue $250bn more of the things at the G20, in what might be seen as a prelude to a more widespread plot to install SDRs permanently in place. Under what was approved by the world leaders, the IMF is suddenly behaving like a global central bank, issuing SDRs to control liquidity worldwide. This is a central bank without direct accountability to the people of the world, which only seems to underline the apparent outrageousness of this plot.
