Abandon sinking US dollar ship? Top UK bankster pushes for new 'synthetic hegemonic currency'

Bank of England head Mark Carney has urged his fellow central bankers to embrace tech like Facebook's Libra to build a multipolar system, warning against "swapping one currency hegemon for another" - unless it's their hegemon.

Carney declared that a Libra-like currency – with a few tweaks to silence critics – can bring about a new "multipolar international monetary financial system" (IMFS) during a speech at the Fed-sponsored Jackson Hole Economic Policy Symposium on Friday. Acknowledging that the dollar's days as the world reserve currency are numbered, he gushed that "technology has the potential to disrupt the network externalities that prevent the incumbent global reserve currency from being displaced" – and to ensure that central banks are properly positioned to take the helm in whatever system replaces it.
