BRICS: a blow to unipolarity

73
28 March The next BRICS summit started in New Delhi - the summit, in which the leaders of five states - Russia, China, India, Brazil and the Republic of South Africa - take part. This meeting is of great interest all over the world, because BRICS is not only almost half of the world's population, but also huge financial, energy and raw material resources. Before the start of the summit, many world experts expressed the opinion that the period of time when BRICS existed only conditionally passed, and it is time to make decisions about the real consolidation of the five countries listed above with the simultaneous adoption of a document regulating a certain form of further relations between these states. Indeed, without a legal basis, no association, even such an impressive one as BRICS, will be able to carry out productive activities. However, the documentary evidence of integration between the BRICS countries or “Trousers”, as Dmitry Medvedev suggested once calling this organization in the Russian manner, may well not take place, since at least two of the five states have serious mutual claims. We are talking about China and India.


Since 60-ies between Delhi and Beijing, there are unresolved territorial issues that, in fact, interfere with the closer partnership between the two countries. China still believes that the state of Arunachal Pradesh should not be part of India, and India declares that China is actually occupying the Trans-Karakorum road. At the same time, talks about the need for urgent additional funding of the Indian army in order to be able to resist the PRC in case of possible aggression continue in New Delhi.

The situation between Beijing and New Delhi is far from unclouded because Dalai Lama XIV lives on Indian territory as an honored guest, to which Chinese authorities have more than enough complaints about the frequent actions of the reactionaries in Tibet. Beijing accuses the Dalai Lama and those who gave him asylum (in fact, the Indian authorities) of complicity with the West in order to crush China.

In the conditions of such a rather sharp dispute, it’s not yet necessary to talk about BRICS not just as an economic union, but also as a possible military-political alliance. However, there is more than enough potential for such cooperation among Beijing, Moscow, Pretoria, New Delhi and Brasilia.

What is the agenda of the BRICS summit in addition to the possible legal consolidation of the essence of this kind of association? Experts say that the leaders of the five states could well agree on a systematic reduction in the role of the dollar in the modern economy. Today, only too much optimist is convinced that the dollar will continue to remain afloat through 10, through 20, and even through 50 years. More pragmatic economists are inclined to believe that it is from BRICS that a currency can emerge that can fulfill the direct responsibilities of market regulation much more efficiently at the next stage of development than it is today (or rather, almost completely fails) to do the US dollar. Someone sees such a currency as a yuan, and someone draws the possibility of the emergence of some supranational currency - a peculiar analogue of the euro.

However, to say that in two days of the summit, the leaders of the five countries will agree to introduce a new world currency - too naive. But it is quite possible to expect that regular agreements on mutual settlements in national currencies will be concluded. This will be a vector for the further decline of the dollar role in the global economy.

Realizing that the March BRICS summit 2012, is able to lay a bomb under the current financial model, the West is trying to find reasons to point out the low viability of the union of 5 countries. In particular, it is interesting to discuss the opinion of the American economist Nouriel Roubini, who is known for predicting the 2008-2011 crisis (2012). He is confident that in the current composition of the BRICS association is not able to solve global problems. There is, in his opinion, among the “five” states that the role of a member of the BRICS is clearly not worthy. If you thought Roubini was talking about South Africa, then you were mistaken. The economist is sure that the development of BRICS "stops" the Russian Federation. The same position is taken by other prominent American and European economists (in particular, Ian Bremmer of the Eurasia Group). They are confident that with their nominal GDP in 1,9 trillion. Russia can’t be in the same row with such economic giants as four other BRICS countries (or already, it turns out, BICS). According to these gentlemen, it is time for the BRICS to replace Russia with either Turkey or Indonesia. It turns out that corruption does not allow Russia to enter such an elite club, which Indonesia’s superpower deserves to enter ...

After this kind of “expert assessments,” you begin to rightly doubt the adequacy of such respected gentlemen as Rubini (by the way, the Nobel laureate) or Bremmer. After all, it turns out that corruption is such a purely Russian phenomenon and it is not found anywhere else in the world: neither you in South Africa, nor Brazil, nor Indonesia, nor Turkey, what can we say about the United States ... And the reasoning about the obvious and the hopeless weakness of the Russian economy, which, whatever one may say, and in terms of growth rates is in the first four of the world, it is also impossible to name anything other than strange. It seems that it was not for nothing that a joke appeared in the world that the Nobel Committee needed to be understood as a sect that financially encourages the deepest errors of scientists from the United States of America ...

However, the opinion of American economists, who can not straighten out their debt economic model, we, of course, respect, but we will not pay too much attention to this opinion. We will not be yet because it is obvious for what purposes such an opinion is expressed: leave the Western financial system with a sort of economic banner for a certain period of time, retaining the dominant position of the dollar, on the basis of which, apparently, Mr. Rubini-sighted and open accounts in the US banks.

By the way, strengthening BRICS is not at all in the interests of the United States and the European Union, since the “five” have their own views not only on the economy, but also on geopolitics. In particular, all five countries are categorically against the start of a military operation against Iran, as well as against tougher sanctions against the Islamic Republic. And such unity strongly strikes the prestige of the whole West.

The BRICS summit is held in order to develop a new model of economic development and political stability, unlike the opinions of Western lobbyists. It is planned that new levers will be found in New Delhi in order to increase trade turnover between the BRICS countries. Today, the “five” annual turnover amounts to about 230 billion dollars, but this figure is clearly not consistent with the potentials of the BRICS countries. If the crisis in Sino-Indian relations is overcome, then this alone can contribute to a sharp increase in trade turnover. And it is time for Russian-Indian trade turnover to start growing at a more substantial pace. Today, it does not reach 12 billions of dollars a year, with a substantial part of the purchase and sale of weapons. Such a figure can be considered completely unacceptable for such huge economies. In only one area of ​​precision engineering and space exploration, Russia and India have enormous prospects.

Another goal of the summit is to create a BRICS bank, which will credit the member countries of the community without seeking assistance from institutions like the IMF, for example. This “five” step can demonstrate, if not complete self-sufficiency, then serious ambitions, which the world obviously will have to reckon with. Most likely, lending will be made exclusively in RMB, which indicates the next step of the Chinese currency to the full-weight expulsion of the dollar from the world economic Olympus.

In this regard, it remains to expect that bilateral differences will not become an obstacle to the beginning of the formation of a new financial and political pole of the world.

      other than forging nails

      Sasha, salute. You probably mean - nails in the coffin lid ?! recourse And about the corruption - whose cow was mooing ... It’s worth going deeper into the Internet - the news of corruption in the Army and society of the West is up to the throat!
      Here's an illustration -------- US Army sergeant Terry Hall was sentenced to three years and three months in prison in a multi-million-dollar army pullback case. It is reported by The Wall Street Journal.
      The verdict was passed by a federal judge in Birmingham (Alabama). The Hall will also be confiscated funds and property obtained illegally (according to the newspaper, we are talking about millions of dollars).

      As a result of the investigation, the 46-year-old Hall in 2005-2006 was an intermediary between the military, who distributed orders for bribes and kickbacks in Kuwait, and entrepreneurs. He was threatened until 20 years in prison. The verdict, apparently, turned out to be milder due to the fact that Hall in 2011 year testified against one of the defendants in the case - Major Eddie Pressley. In January 2012, Pressly was sentenced to 12 years in prison.

      Several officers pleaded guilty in this case, including a lieutenant colonel and four majors. The amount of bribes and kickbacks, according to the investigation, exceeded 20 million dollars. Moreover, nine million of this amount, presumably, was received by Major John Cockerham, who pleaded guilty. In 2009, Cockerham was sentenced to 17,5 years in prison and forced to pay 9,6 one million dollars.

      At the same time, entrepreneur George Lee, whose companies, according to authorities, paid bribes and kickbacks, does not plead guilty. According to investigators, he was involved in the criminal scheme since 2004, when his company received, thanks to Major Gloria Dean Davis, an order for the supply of buses for the American base of Arifjan (Camp Arifjan) in Kuwait. According to the investigation, for this Lee offered a job to her son and ordered to deposit 80 thousand dollars on her account in Thailand. In 2006, Davis committed suicide (shortly before that, she confessed to complicity in a criminal scheme to investigators in Baghdad).

            We are just observing the agony of the West. I have a hunch (intuition), and I can not do anything about it, that for the West this is the last year of prosperity, and this is nothing but a collapse. All their undertakings have recently crumbled like sand castles from the blow of the wind. Attempts to fix something in their failures lead to even greater failures. The West drove itself under a copper basin without any help.

                As soon as it comes to mutual settlements in national currencies, the "Shnobel laureates" with their forecasts immediately pop out of the snuffbox.

                  Russia also spoke about the introduction of a new reserve world currency. Russian President Dmitry Medvedev in an interview with the American television channel CNBC said that the world needs a greater variety of reserve currencies, since the economic crisis in the United States has changed the attitude towards the dollar around the world. "The current situation in the global economy requires the emergence of more reserve currencies that could be used by banks, individuals and states. In the near future, our main task is to create more reserve currencies," the Russian leader believes.

      In order to eliminate the dollar, as a global currency, it is necessary to abandon it in the first place in payments for energy. And this is extremely difficult. And it makes no sense for China to push the dollar in this way (the main importer of Chinese goods is the USA, the main holder of US government bonds is China). China and the United States are too closely related, it is another matter that it is possible and necessary to rattle instruments of influence on the world economy and the US economy.

      And if we talk about BRICS as an organization - it is too weak, the connections are fragile, and the composition, to put it mildly, intractable among themselves, the economic, political and cultural differences are too strong.

      The real alternative is the very "union of the former Union" where Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan (I hope that soon Ukraine and Armenia) will be able to create their own well-integrated and stable economic space, fortunately, the foundation has already been laid.
      For hundreds of years we have been together and must reunite.

    Someone sees the yuan as such a currency, while someone draws the possibility of a certain supranational currency - a kind of analogue of the euro.

          So what? When the world was ruled, Britain-pound was the world currency, when America-dollar became .. The single currency is not entered, but it is introduced on its own ... In the beginning, as an opportunity to pay for goods bypassing banks of other countries, and then as a single means of payment at the beginning for two countries, then for several ...
          In particular, many payments between Russia and Belarus are made in rubles, and not in dollars or euros ... With Ukraine now, too, such an experience appears ... Kazakhstan is in the same row ...
          Why can’t settlements between India and Russia be made in rubles or rupees? They may well..just both parties must be sure of the stability of the currency..And creating a single currency for several countries is no different from what I said..just it will be tied not to one or two, but to all currencies at once .. the course will be more stable ...

            The British pound is now the most stable of world currencies - Britain never ruled the world - Britain ruled the sea :))) When Britain had the largest colonies in the world, it had competing countries - France, Germany, Russia and America with their imperial ambitions and with their own at that time also world currencies ...

            It is here that the world currency was introduced by countries in the middle of the second world war - representatives of countries fighting with Germany in 1943 gathered in America and at this meeting agreed to assign the dollar the status of a world reserve currency - because at that time the United States was the most powerful and uninjured economy from the war ... And at the end of World War II, the United States had 2% of the world's gold reserves and plus a huge military and civilian economy ... And the union lay in ruins, people died of starvation in 75 and until the 1947s Soviet Union still paid for Lend-Lease - and gold because the rest is all garbage, American Jewish bankers already know this ...

            But to date, the situation has changed dramatically - the United States with huge debts and a melting gold and foreign exchange reserves and the ambitions of the world gendarme have flooded the whole world with unsecured green papers referring to those treaties of the Second World War ...

In addition, the amount of gold is not enough to name all the economies of the world in gold. But what if the amount of gold in the country is greater than the real economy? I think the future is in the energy currency, the monetary unit is kilowatt / hour. Another thing is that now it is difficult to implement due to well-known reasons.

    The power of amers in the printing press, how much you need to print, so much print. As soon as everyone abandons the dollar, it will turn into a simple, multi-colored piece of paper, suitable only for ignition. The whole boasted Amerov economy will crumble. If America can stand it, then it certainly will not excite anyone. It is possible to get bogged down in a civil war between blacks and whites, and certainly for several decades it will be a masturbation. In any case, it is necessary to create a new world currency, well, the ruble))), you can also have another one, from the BRICS countries, or a common one.

    I dare to recall for China the European Union is the most important trading partner.
    According to the EU Statistical Service, in the reporting period, the trade turnover between the European Union and China was $ 800 million more than with the United States, accounting for 13,4% of all export-import transactions of the union. However, this indicator decreased by 0,8% compared to the same month a year earlier.

    ДFor a united Europe, China remains the second largest market. The volume of exports to China in July this year amounted to 11,7 billion euros (an increase of 12,3% compared with the same period a year earlier). The total growth in exports from the EU to China was 4,1% of the total volume of EU transactions.

    In the reporting month, the EU imported Chinese products by 23,9 billion euros, compared with July 2010, this figure decreased by 6,2%. The share of Chinese imports in EU trade was 17,4%.

    There will be no trade with Europe, China’s export earnings will fall and you won’t sell anything there.
