The strong dollar policy is the United States economic policy based on the assumption that a strong exchange rate of the United States dollar is in the interests of the United States and the whole world. It is said to be also driven by a desire to encourage foreign bondholders to buy more Treasury securities. The United States Secretary of the Treasury occasionally states that the US supports a strong dollar. Since the implementation of this policy,[when?] the dollar has declined substantially. Despite this, the policy keeps inflation low, encourages foreign investment, and maintains the currency's role in the global financial system.[1]
