P.S. そういえば、数年前「ビットコインが米ドルになる」と誰かが言っていましたが、最近は耳にしなくなりました。


通貨の要件として、乱高下しないことがあると言われていますが、ビットコインは価格の安定性が担保されていないため、日常的な利用にはあまり向いていないのかもしれませんね :-)。


< Mr. PDCAのボンジュール英語「基軸通貨」=「key currency」>


今回出てきた「基軸通貨」の英訳は、「key currency」になります。


「Key currency」を直訳すると、「鍵通貨」になりますが、「鍵となる通貨=基軸通貨」というわけですね :-)。




PDCA (plan-do-check-action) Diary Vol. 1,384 "Days silver was dollars"】


Today, the United States has the right to issue the key currency, the US dollar, and former French President Charles de Gaulle is known for deceiving it as an “unreasonable privilege”.


There is no history that the Japanese currency became the key currency.


However, in the 16th century, when silver was the key currency in the world, Japan produced a large amount of silver in the Iwami Ginzan silver mine and it produced about 30%.

The material to be introduced today “Let's think about the future of Japan (Japanese only)” explains in detail the situation of the Japanese economy in the 16th century, and the following phrases were impressive.


“Around 1600, Japan's global share of GDP once peaked and reaching 4 to 5%.


This is because there was a world-leading silver mine called Iwami Ginzan in addition to the rapid increase in population.


Japan's silver production was about 30% of the world's silver in the 16th century." (Unquote)
