It might be due to Triffin’s Dilemma’. ‘Triffin’s Dilemma’ is a reference to economist Robert Triffin, who noticed back in 1960 that, whatever country holds the world’s reserve currency, must inflate that currency to keep the global economy running by supplying all the other nations with its money.
