Map showing currency pegs:

“Currency pegs — either to a single currency or to a weighted collection of several strong currencies — is a way to try to avoid currency volatility and promote friction-free trade. But when confronted by a rapidly changing economy, pegs can also disrupt free-market mechanisms and lead either to local havoc (Argentina, 2001), or unhappy superpowers (such as the US disparagement of China’s peg).” U.S. ECONOMIC EMPIRE – Bill Rankin, 2006
