[...] Can the Brics Create a New World Order? (ilookchina.net) [...]
What about the agreement in New Delhi to conduct trade among the BRICS countries in their own currencies, a move that was aimed at boosting trade among the five countries and reducing the BRICS dependency on the U.S. Dollar? How might this impact the US?
For an possible answer to that question, according to Gold-Speculator.com, “The demise of the dollar will also bring radical changes to the American lifestyle. When this economic tsunami hits America, it will make the 2008 recession and its aftermath look like no more than a slight bump in the road. It will bring very undesirable changes to the American lifestyle through:
1. massive inflation,
2. high interest rates on mortgages and cars,
3. substantial increases in the cost of food, clothing and gasoline and*
4. the U.S. government is going to have a much harder time financing its debt. Right now, there is a huge demand for U.S. dollars and for U.S. government debt since countries around the world have to keep huge reserves of U.S. currency lying around for the sake of international trade but what if… the appetite for U.S. dollars and U.S. debt dried up dramatically? That is something to think about.”
