also big costs.  On the benefit side, if it were achievable, I think it
would provide a big boost to world trade, which would in turn be good for

In addition, the European experiment with a single currency indicates that strong caution is warranted before attempting to implement this on a global scale. "

your idea of a single world currency indeed would have the merits you suggest. But there would be costs as well, e.g., inflexibility in dealing with regional economic downturns. Also, it is not clear who or what would be the world central bank (IMF?). 

 In a word, it would be a little difficult for me to become a single currency advocate, although of course I remain open to debate as to whether the benefits of this would at some point outweigh the costs. Whatever the outcome of that debate, it is pretty clear that world politics does not at this time run in the direction of granting more power to supranational organizations, as would be necessary for a single currency to be functional."
