Share John Butler: The US dollar – is there an alternative global currency?

Event Details

“Perhaps a good time for the befuddled world to start considering building a de-Americanized world” said a statement from China’s state news agency on Tuesday in response to the fiscal problems in the US.

This Monday evening The University of Auckland Economics Group is excited to be hosting a presentation by John Butler, a UK-based expert on the viability of the US dollar as the world’s reserve currency. His talk will address the implications of the “Chinese scenario” and the growing loss of confidence in the US dollar, things which will shape the world in the coming years and decades.

John is an incredibly engaging and insightful presenter so you don’t want to miss his talk.

John is the Managing Partner at Amphora Capital and has advised many of the world’s largest institutional investors. He is also the author of The Golden Revolution, published in 2012, which explores the practicality of a commodity based currency. We are also pleased to say that one lucky attendee will win a copy of his book.

In this presentation John will discuss:

  • the role of the US dollar in the global economy
  • how events such as the global financial crisis are changing the way many, including China,  view the US dollar
  • what an alternative reserve currency might look like in the future, and how commodities might play a role in such a currency

John is in Auckland for one day only, Monday 21 October, so we are privileged to have him speak to us. Remember, one lucky attendee will win a copy of his book.
