SEA CHANGE: China-Russia Coalition Creates Alternative to IMF, World Bank
by Chriss W. Street, Breitbart:
The reign of the United States dollar as the only reserve currency in the world may be coming to an end.
Over the last five years, the U.S.-centric balance of economic and military power has been destabilized with the crumbling of the social welfare states of the European Union and the rise of the state-sponsored capitalist BRICS: Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa.
After 70 years of the dollar’s supremacy, the BRICS at their summit in Durban, South Africa, have reached an agreement to establish a joint financial institution that would serve the same functions as the American-dominated International Monetary Fund and World Bank. With America hurting and Europe terminally burdened by debt and loss of economic competitiveness, the BRICS appear to be seizing the opportunity to attack the dollar’s preeminence.
Nonsense, you pathetic, cowering cowards. The U.S. dollar entered a brutal bear market in 2001. It stopped going down in value relative to other currencies in the spring of 2009 and slowly coming back. True, it won't be easy, especially after that long, devastating descent, but now is not the time to short the U.S. dollar, you cowards.
