...can insulate themselves from the Federal Reserve's decisions, liberating themselves from what Dani Rodrik and Arvind Subramanian have called " dollar imperialism ". The answer used to be a simple one: float your currency. The Fed, after all, only decides the availability of its dollar liabilities.
