  1. My question is this:~

    With flight from USD, and the EURO being basically a total mess, the Chinese and Indian accumulation of Gold place these BRICS members positively in the basket of wealthy Nations with the naturally resourceful Russia.
    All of these are kind of ‘in sync’.
    Never underestimating the Rothschilds, who started investing heavily in China etc about ten years ago, and who effectively own UK. Is it possible the old, crusty British Pound, in spite of its Gov based expenditure insolvency, might be used as a currency LINK base between these new centres of trade?

  2. The advent of electronic currencies are making the need for any world reserve currency obsolete. Why these fools insist it will be the Yuan or whatever are not paying attention to what is happening in over half the world.
    Since Hugo Chavez introduced the Sucre for the South American Trade alliance in Summer of 2010, the game has been changed. China and Russia saw the success of their system, and quickly adopted it for themselves in November of 2010. Electronic currencies allowed member nations to trade with each other using their own currencies, leaving conversion to the dollar unnecessary. Russia and China made their own agreement to trade with each other using their own currencies leaving the dollar out. They went on to recruit much of the world. It includes, but is not limited to India, Japan, Much of South America and emerging African nations, Turkey, Iran, New Zealand, Australia…..and others have all dumped the dollar.
    The US is sitting on piles of paper money nobody wants, and the folks using the dollar continue to fall. The US has made itself despised around the world, they have only themselves to thank.

  3. Talk about a kangaroo court! The G7 has voted for more sanctions on Russia, regardless the sanctions to this point are causing more money to flood into Russia than ever before. All Russians living abroad are moving their money home thanks to these fool sanctions, and they are very rich people. Meanwhile, money continues to leave the US in droves………
    The so-called president of the Ukraine is a US puppet, and the other nations involved here ought to be ashamed of themselves. Germany especially, as they have told the US to stay OUT of the Ukraine. I guess they all play two ends against the middle…..Germany’s debt is now over 200% of GDP……..and the other nations are worse off.
