It's not going to happen tomorrow, in a year or even five years. But it's conceivable, even likely, that within ten years, the U.S. dollar will cease to become the reference currency for international transactions.

The reasons range widely — from a general distaste for the U.S. meddling outside its borders to Beijing’s frequent support for autocratic regimes.
