Since he published his article on the "World Currency Unit" in World Economy, he has been working to perfect this "indexed unit of account." Daily quotations of this unit in alternative currencies is now available at http://www.ln.edu.hk/cpps/wcu/index.htm (http://www.ln.edu.hk/cpps/wcu/index.htm). He argues that commodity prices should be quoted in this "indexed unit of account," which represents a unit of global real purchasing power, rather than the US dollar. His earlier article in World Economy argues that having bonds denominated in the World Currency Unit will improve the efficiency of global capital markets as it will make real interest rates more transparent. He has published a number of books, including Public Policy and the Public Interest(Routledge), Psychology and Economics of Happiness, Health Policy and the Public Interest, APEC and the Rise of China(World Scientific), Exchange Rate Regimes and Macroeconomic Stability(Kluwer Academic Publishers); China, Hong Kong, and the World Economy (joint editor, Palgrave-Macmillan, 2006).
