Ambrose strong dollar lead to credit crunch




As the Fed’s broad dollar index pushes towards an all-time high of 130, the mechanical effects will expose the Achilles Heel of an international system that has never been more dollarized - and never been more sensitive to US interest rates since the end of the Bretton Woods era.
King dollar will tighten the noose on emerging market debtors with $3.5 trillion of liabilities in US currency.

It will lead to a credit crunch in the developing world.
