Sažetak
Purpose – This paper seeks to focus on the challenge posed by financial globalization before the traditional Westphalian model of monetary sovereignty, claiming that financial globalization of the world’s markets leads to new forms of geopolitical rivalry among contemporary governments. Design/methodology/approach – The paper sets the analytical framework for the study of a tripartite foundation of monetary sovereignty in money manager capitalism, consisting of currency associated with the instruments of its manipulation, which are the two largest independent macroeconomic players: the central bank and the state. This raises the issues of dual sovereignty in economy and the ways in which these entities use their sovereign powers on local and global levels. Findings – Current growing interdependence of financial networks increases the number of choices in monetary issues and forces governments to make ever faster adjustments to the machinery of complex monetary instruments which not only facilitate transactions among very different and distant economies, but also obscure the transparency of decision making. The need to ensure, through the central bank’s legislation, anindependent statusof centralbankerswithrespectto politicians, impliesthattheir workbe effectively monitored by the public and the respective parliament. Practical implications – The independence of central banks, which comprises goal independence, instrument independence and personal independence of the decision-making body of a central bank, increases the accountability of central bankers and raises the issue of sanctions for their misbehavior. Originality/value – Financialglobalization hasdefinitelyraisedtheissueof redistributionoftheauthority of governments and non-state agents. A clear hierarchy between currencies at the global level has dual consequences: first, it amplifies the unequal relationship between the leaders and the followers in global monetary circulation ; second, global market forces ignore political borders and present a serious challenge for the monetary sovereignty of contemporary governments. Equally, the question of re-formulation of the concept of a sovereign state is raised.
