China en Rusland trachten dollar als reservemunt onderuit te halen.

Minder afhankelijk worden van de dollar als betaalmiddel voor internationale handel door gebruik te maken van de eigen lokale munten in swaps en forwards? Dat is wat Rusland en China in oktober afspraken en sinds deze week is het ook effectief aan het gebeuren. Voor beide grootmachten biedt het de kans om de Amerikaanse invloed op hun economieën te verminderen.


In oktober werd door Rusland en China afgesproken een swap aan te bieden ter waarde van 150 miljard yuan (ongeveer 25 miljard dollar). Een swap is een financiële techniek die transacties gemakkelijker maakt door bepaalde elementen van een lening - zoals de hoofdsom of de...

China en Rusland zijn slechts onderdeel van en werken gestaag verder aan het opdelen in machts-hanteerbare-blokken van de wereld.

That's all folks !

The US economy–indeed the entire Western orientated economy from Japan to Europe–is a house of cards. Since the economic downturn began seven years ago, the entirety of Western economic policy has been diverted to the support of a few over-sized banks, sovereign debt, and the US dollar. Consequently, the economies themselves and the ability of populations to cope have deteriorated.

The financial markets are based on manipulation, not on fundamentals. The manipulation is untenable. With debt exploding, negative real interest rates make no sense. With real consumer incomes, real consumer credit, and real retail sales stagnant or falling, the stock market is a bubble. With Russia, China, and other countries moving away from the use of the dollar to settle international accounts, with Russia developing an alternative to the SWIFT financial network, the BRICS developing alternatives to the IMF and World Bank, and with other parts of the world developing their own credit card and Internet systems, the US dollar, along with the Japanese and European currencies that are being printed in order to support the dollar’s exchange value, could experience a dramatic drop in exchange value, which would make the import-dependent Western world dysfunctional.

As the US and EU are conducting economic warfare against Russia, Russia could claim that by wrecking the Russian economy the West has deprived Russia of the ability to repay loans to the European banks. If this does not bring down the thinly capitalized EU banks, Russia can announce that as NATO countries are now officially recognized by Russian war doctrine as an enemy of the Russian state, Russia can no longer support NATO’s aggression against Russia by selling natural gas to NATO members. If the shutdown of much of European industry, rapidly rising rates of unemployment, and bank failures do not result in the dissolution of NATO and thus the end of the threat, the Chinese can act.

The Chinese hold a very large amount of dollar-denominated financial assets. Just as the Federal Reserve’s agents, the bullion banks, dump massive shorts onto the bullion futures markets during periods of little activity in order to drive down the bullion price, China can dump the equivalent in US Treasuries of years of Quantitative Easing in a few minutes. If the Federal Reserve quickly creates dollars with which to purchase the enormous quantity of Treasuries so that the financial house of cards does not implode, the Chinese can then dump the dollars that they are paid for the bonds in the currency market. Whereas the Federal Reserve can print dollars with which to purchase the Treasuries, the Fed cannot print foreign currencies with which to buy the dollars.

The dollar would collapse, and with it the power of the Hegemon. The war would be over without a shot or missile fired.

Nog één stukje uit dit artikel van PCR:
Today the Russian government no longer has any illusion that Europe is capable of an independent foreign policy. Russian President Vladimir Putin has stated publicly that Russia has learned that diplomacy with Europe is pointless, because European politicians represent Washington’s interest, not Europe’s.

Iets wat mij meer veel zorgen baart is dat China bezig lijkt te zijn met een plan om het wegvallen de VS markt te compenseren door 250 miljoen straatarme boeren te herhuivesten in steden en ze zo te veranderen in een alternatieve consumerende markt.
