P-gold is an improved version of Keynes’s proposal for a new international currency called the bancor. That proposal never took off because countries had conﬁdence in the US dollar; the US economy was strong and dominated the global economy (at more than 50 percent of global GDP), so other countries had no compelling reason to push for change. Today the US economy’s share of global GDP is around 20 percent, and the international monetary system is wobbly. A global currency such as p-gold could become a win-win for all countries by eliminating instability, which is bad for reserve currency countries and nonreserve currency countries alike.
Klein and Cukier (2009) exemplify this argument. Aizenman (2008) and Aizenman and Lee (2008) provide evidence of self-insurance motives in East Asia. Ben-Bassat and Gottlieb (1992) also support this viewpoint, with a general model tested using data on Israel. Goldstein and Lardy (2009) review this position and argue that a 40 percent appreciation could eliminate China’s global current account surplus. Jeanne (2011) presents a model in which savings and capital controls are used to undervalue the real exchange rate.

Export-led growth strategy Although China and East Asian economies have dramatically increased their trade surpluses in recent years, they have followed export-led growth strategies since the 1960s. Sustainable export-led growth strategies have not been based on targeting an ever-expanding trade surplus but on increasing integration with international markets, leading to more imports as well as exports and generating higher quality jobs in the tradables sector.
