Deep Dive The Future of Money

Pressure Won’t Work It’s Time to Dump the Dollar Sayonara, Yen

Welcome to Deep Dive, a unique monthly policy conversation about the world’s most pressing issues. Each month, we tackle a new subject from the top of the Washington agenda, featuring key players from Capitol Hill and the executive branch, as well as other global decision-makers, as we go deep on the issues shaping Washington's intersection with the world. In this special edition, we take on the future of money, the complex and long-fought currency wars that threaten to reshape the global economy in unprecedented and unpredictable ways -- starting with a definitive briefing on Beijing’s political calculations by Brookings scholar Arthur Kroeber and key insights from the World Bank’s Mansoor Dailami, noted eurosceptic David Marsh, and China economy expert Michael Pettis, among others. The debate couldn’t be more timely, with a European monetary union in crisis, gold prices going through the roof, and politicians in Washington vowing to up the pressure on China’s undervalued currency.

Revolution Road

Deep Dive

Foreign Policy presents a special report on the Soviet collapse two decades later -- and why it matters now, in today’s revolutionary times. As the protesters of the Arab Spring invoke the ghosts of Moscow 1991 in seeking to topple their own autocratic regimes, we’ve assembled an all-star cast of some of the world’s leading Russia watchers, from two Pulitzer Prize winners to one of Boris Yeltsin’s top lieutenants, to help us ponder the enduring, and never more relevant, mysteries of how the Communist regime crumbled – and the state of the former Soviet Union today. Be warned: Everything you think you know about the Soviet collapse is wrong.
