ActualRatings by Economists of Single Global Currency N-Z

Below are listed economists and others who have written about international economics or exchange rates or other area of relevance to the single global currency.  Also included are people who work in this area and have offered their views.

Their ratings of the Single Global Currency, using the rating system on the previous page, are given below as they were sent to us.  It is anticipated that more ratings will be listed as more and more economists research and write about the Utility and Feasibility of the Single Global Currency.

Matt Polasek – Flinders University Australia 4 or 5 bet 1-2 5-7 12 Nov 05 joint email, together with Dimitri Hatzinikolaou:   "I do not think that any economist who has given the matter any thought would deny that on your Utility Scale of Rating the project merits a +4 or +5, for the simple reason that the benefits of a common currency area are in direct proportion to  its size, and hence the optimum of any such system is an arrangement that com-prises the whole world. That having been said, it is an altogether different matter to try to decide what Feasibility Index one might want to attach to the prospect of establishing a SGC (single global currency) by the Year 2024. … therefore,  we would rate it at somewhere between +1 and +2."
