Reserve Currency does not last forever

6 Feb

starting around the year 1400 there has been a progression of national reserve currencies;

Portugal 1450~1550
Spain 1550~1650
Netherlands 1650~1750
France 1750~1850
Britain 1850~1950
US 1950~ ?

Obviously the dates I have used are fudged but I think it helps to remember something when the patterns are simple. For anyone really interested in more accuracy they are welcome to search for themselves and hopefully post the information here.

Following the trend it puts the USD to expire around 2050.
