Whether it will be is the focus of the next chapter. : The Billion Dollar Question* (With Jose Kiran) Introduction Countries have been holding foreign exchange reserves since the advent of international trade. In the 19th and early 20th centuries, since “the sun never set on the British Empire”, most of the holdings of foreign exchange reserves were logically in pound sterling. Britain was the world’s leading trading nation and around 60 percent of the world trade was invoiced and settled in pound sterling.
The USD’s share of world’s reserves peaked at almost 85 percent in the early 1970s. In contrast, the sterling’s share continued to drop dramatically following the successive devaluations of the sterling in the 1950s and 1960s. Despite the collapse of the Bretton Woods system in 1971, the USD remained the dominant international currency, though its share in global reserves began to decline, reaching a trough of 50 percent in 1990, only to bounce back to about 60 percent since the late 1990s and well until 2005 (Table 2).
