What a strong US dollar means for the world economy

Geoff Riley

7th December 2016

This short interview with the editor of the Economist is good contextual background for students looking at the wider effects of currency movements. Will an appreciating US dollar (prompted for example by expected increases in UK policy interest rates) pose a threat to growth in the world economy?

This article from the Brookings Institute provides some first rate context and analysis on the short term rise of the US dollar in the aftermath of the Trump victory.
