Mundell and Eichengreen on China

From the inbox. Well worth a listen to get an introduction to this politically sensitive and also economically important topic.


This week on Bloomberg Radio®, "Bloomberg on the Economy" host Tom Keene spoke for an hour with Nobel Laureate Robert Mundell of Columbia University as well as an hour with Barry Eichengreen, professor of economics and political science at U.C., Berkeley. Professor Mundell discussed the globalization of world currencies and China's holding of U.S. assets, the 2007 Nobel Prize winners, and also mentioned a new screenplay he is writing about a viceroy in 1907 Canton. Tom Keene and Professor Eichengreen focused on the IMF's "reform agenda," global exchange rate policies and the changing weight of the dollar and pressure on China to revalue the yuan. We thought you might find the interviews of interest. Please feel free to follow the link below to listen to their conversations:
