BankINTRO.com Currency Index
BankINTRO.com presents a general overview ‘snapshot’ of a country’s currency under review. The BankINTRO.com 'Currency Index' is a continually running research project by our firm. It is important to note that BankINTRO.com does undertake extensive research from a vast array of sources in order to get a clearer picture of the currency in question. All relevant information is subjectively inputted into the BankINTRO.com regression model to formulate a general score for visitors to the BankINTRO.com currency index. The BankINTRO.com regression model consists of three major sections each with equal weight under the categories of ‘POLITICAL’, ‘ECONOMIC’ AND ‘POLICY’. Each of these three sections is then subdivided into approximately 15 categories with differentiating weights. The BankINTRO.com regression model provides for a score from ‘0’ (dangerous - poor) to ‘100’ (very sound currency) based on the subjective ranking of each category prepared and ranked by BankINTRO.com staff. Our measure of ‘Currency Safeness’ is a subjective evaluation providing a ranking score that BankINTRO.com believes gives the reader a better representation of the currency under review. ‘Currency Safeness’ is the likelihood risk of a significant currency depreciation or currency collapse.

Gold is the oldest currency and most trusted currency of time. The lure of gold still mystifies the masses with its unique properties, elegance and lust. For the most part, gold is rare. Historically, an estimated total of only 147,000 tonnes of gold have been mined of which 33,000 tonnes are controlled by the world’s central banks and the other 114,000 tonnes are in private ownership. This total amount of gold in existence can fit into a cube measuring only 80 feet.

Some analysts have suggested that the instability within the fiat global monetary system will return gold to the forefront of the world monetary system by providing that much needed anchor of stability. From 1930-2004, the US-dollar ‘USD’ for the most part has served as reserve currency for the world with the British pound prior to the Great Depression of 1930 playing that role. Today, gold may very well be the next currency of choice for hundreds of millions of consumers. Gold is the currency of last resort that has tested the history of time, the only currency that has survived as paper fiat currencies come and go with the government of the day. Financial panics may re-occur to some monetary systems similar to what happened in Argentina three years ago when the economy and Argentine peso imploded. If the public loses complete faith in their currency and monetary system with the continuation of global debasement of many fiat currencies now a common phenomenon, gold may very well play an important currency role in the 21st century.

Updated in our currency index in year 2008 is a currency snapshot review for the United Kingdom pound sterling. Many of the macro-concepts and currency estimations remain true even today in year 2015 for the UK.

UNITED KINGDOM pound sterling (GBP)
ß 80
   
The United Kingdom (UK) is a major trading power, global financial center home to a modern industrialized first world economy. The UK is a member of the European Union (EU) although they decided not to join economic monetary union (EMU) with the initial 12 country Eurozone back in year 1999 at the time of euro (EUR) inception. At some point in the future, the question will ultimately arrive directly to the British voter of whether or not the UK should adopt the EUR or stay with pound sterling (GBP).

Will the UK’s worsening fiscal and trade deficit position impact the UK’s economy that is currently one of the strongest in Europe? UK unemployment is near historic lows along with interest rates and inflation. Are the good times over for the British economy and its national currency, the pound sterling?

The study of a large number of micro, small and middle sized economies that we research and document in our currency index are essential in helping our critical thinking for larger currency zones.

In the future, the movement towards regional currency blocs will take hold amongst a large number of currencies with similar trading relationships. One only has to take a look at Europe and the common currency zone of the Euro (EUR). An example of other present day circulating currency zones include Africa which has the CFA Franc for several countries in Western Africa whilst the Caribbean region has the East Caribbean dollar currency zone (XCD).

BankINTRO.com sees the world dividing into several more regional currency blocs including Russia, United States - more USD dollarization countries to take place, China, Japan, Middle East - perhaps an Islamic gold dinar, ultimately a Mercosur trading and currency zone in South America. Regional currency blocs in our view will be a growing popular currency trend as the world of banking & finance evolves in the 21st century. Also, it is just as vitally important to keep an eye on the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and decisions related to world central bank reserve currencies.
