The Dollarization Debate

John Williamson

Oxford University Press

This chapter argues that dollarization should not be debated in the abstract, assuming that the advantages are the same everywhere. Policy should differ in accordance with different circumstances. It urges Mercosur to consider the establishment of its own monetary union, rather than for its members to adopt the currency of another country that is unwilling to share its monetary sovereignty.

Keywords:   dollarization, Mercosur, monetary union, currency
