• Zero Hedge

Last but not least, the US was of course expected to bear the brunt of this reallocation, responsible for purchasing three times as much (SDR30 billion) as the second largest quota allocated country: Japan (SDR11 billion). China is far in the distance at SDR 6 billion. In essence: the monetary community increased its global liquidity position, by assuming that the U.S. is still the defacto reserve currency, and forcing it to take the majority of the devaluation hit relative to all other IMF constituents.

Well done, Ben.
