Project "ZZ". Strengthening of the Middle Kingdom and the extinction of Europe

51
This week, the Chinese yuan has fallen into the basket of the International Monetary Fund. Yuan became "his" in the company of the dollar, euro, yen and pound sterling. Until 30 November 2015, nothing like this happened in the financial world: the key currency never became a currency that could not be called freely convertible. Experts say that the status of China as an economic force of world importance will soon rise. Other analysts point out that today the Celestial Empire is in a very favorable position, skillfully taking advantage of the sanctions against Moscow and Tehran.


Keith Bradscher at "New York Times" spoke about how the Chinese yuan proclaimed one of the reserve currencies.

The analyst calls the IMF decision "epoch-making" because it emphasized the "growing financial and economic weight of the Middle Kingdom."

The new currency position will allow Beijing to "pave the way" to the widespread use of the yuan in trade and finance. In addition, the author of The New York Times writes, China’s status “as an economic force of world importance” will be strengthened.

In addition to the yuan, the IMF basket contains only four currencies: the dollar, the euro, the pound sterling, and the yen.

It was not easy for the Chinese to determine their currency in this very basket. The journalist reminds that Beijing’s path to the new status was “thorny”. The IMF put forward a number of stringent requirements, without which the yuan would not have become a key currency. In order to fulfill these requirements, the PRC had to partially loosen state control over the yuan. As a result, inflation occurred - in August 2015, the devaluation of the yuan "shook the world markets."

Similar phenomena with a monetary unit can lead to an even more unstable situation in the PRC - after all, today the country's economy and finances are not in the best condition; economic development is slowing.

On the other hand, the American analyst points out, adding the yuan to the group of major currencies is a clear signal from the IMF: this currency is safe and secure.

According to Christine Lagarde (Managing Director of the Fund) in Washington, the inclusion of the yuan in the basket of reserve currencies is "recognition of the progress in the transformation of the Chinese monetary and financial systems." In her opinion, the Chinese authorities in recent years have managed to achieve progress in this.


IMF Managing Director Christine Lagarde speaks about the yuan (speech in Washington)


She believes that Beijing should “continue and deepen” the corresponding efforts, which in the end should lead to the strengthening of the international monetary and financial systems. And here there is a direct benefit for China: such a strengthening, in turn, will contribute to the growth of both the global and the Chinese economy.

Keith Bradscher has no doubt that obtaining key status for Beijing is a matter of "great pride." After all, the desire to "get" in the basket was one of the priorities of the economic policy of the PRC.

According to Mr. Bradscher, the Foundation’s decision also speaks of something else, namely, on the extinction of European influence. The journalist believes that now the yuan will quickly win back positions from the euro.

Writes analyst and loan capital.

The key status assigned to the yuan (by the way, it will enter into force only in September 2016 of the year) will give the Chinese monetary unit real advantages over other non-key currencies. Specifically: the yuan will be one of those currencies used in the issuance and repayment of international loans.

Notes the author of the article and a number of financial problems in the PRC.

Yes, the yuan is declared a reserve currency, but this does not mean that the modernization of the Chinese economy is complete. The Chinese state still excessively regulates the financial system. In China, the situation with the protection of human rights is also unimportant. According to the American, a major role in judicial decisions is played by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). How can a party, the courts and “human rights” relate to currency and its international advancement? The most direct: existing problems may limit the attractiveness of the yuan in the world.

China is doing well not only in the currency “battlefield”, we’ll add. A decaying Europe is being stewed in front of the Chinese and on another front. It has already reached the point that American experts recommend not only the European Union, but also the United States, to tune in to the closest "partnership" with the Middle Kingdom.

This is written in "The Wall Street Journal" Elizabeth Rosenberg and Zachary Goldman. These are not reporters, these are experts.

Elizabeth Rosenberg - director of energy, economics and security programs at the Center for a New American Security, Zachary K. Goldman - executive Director of the Center for Law and Security Studies at the Law Faculty of New York University (executive director of the New York University School of Law).

According to experts, China benefits from international sanctions imposed on Russia and Iran. In such a situation, the authors of The Wall Street Journal recommend that both Europe and the United States tune in to a close partnership with China.

The fact is that measures against "regimes that threaten international security" have brought Beijing "significant benefits." And in the future, the benefits of these sanctions for the Chinese will also grow.

Here is an explanation for the success of China.

Russia was punished for actions in eastern Ukraine by denying access to capital markets in the West. What did Russia do? Appealed to the Chinese. However, Beijing did not speak with Russia as a friend: the Chinese, the authors write, set out to "conduct a dialogue from a position of strength." It took some time, and it turned out: Beijing, using the situation, deftly imposed Moscow on disadvantageous conditions under two gas agreements (referring to the Power of Siberia gas pipeline). Gazprom, which had nowhere to go, was forced to agree to the unfavorable price conditions imposed by Beijing. The conditions, the authors note, are so unprofitable that the profit will hardly pay back the costs of developing the deposits.

Negotiations were underway, the issue was discussed, however, since the West does not plan to lift sanctions on Moscow, China will surely get out favorable terms for itself, experts say.

It was the Western sanctions that helped the PRC to push its yuan into a key currency position. And it was precisely the sanctions that helped the Celestial Empire to create an alternative to the previously dominant global financial system, tied primarily to the circulation of the dollar and the euro. A new Chinese financial platform has emerged - the CIPS payment system, which is, by the way, an analogue of SWIFT. The Chinese system applies to international payments related to China, but outside the jurisdiction of the United States and the European Union. Thus, participants in this system can ignore US and EU sanctions.

China can also get an interesting benefit from cooperation with Iran. Only here everything is different: the benefit of the PRC will not be from sanctions, but from their removal.

Partial lifting of sanctions from Iran will give China the opportunity to invest in Iran, ahead of the timid West. Western banks and energy companies are still afraid to invest capital in the Iranian economy, but the Chinese are likely to show less caution.

From this, one can already see that “springboard”, from which the Celestial Empire will jump to the leading positions in the international financial system.

This does not mean that the positions of the United States and the West in general will be shaken in the coming years, but it’s simply absurd to deny that sanctions really support China’s economic ambitions.

Therefore, European and American politicians should bear in mind some unintended consequences of sanctions, write Goldman and Rosenberg. China should be treated as a partner involved in the construction of a global security system. If you adhere to the policy of partnership, then Beijing will learn: it was accepted into the international financial order. As a result, the Celestial Empire will get rid of the desire to impose financial systems on the world, giving the chance to the “rogue” to avoid sanction strangulation

* * *


So, China has made another economic step to the global financial peak. The leadership of the Celestial Empire uses any opportunities to strengthen its economy, develop the country and promote national interests in the world. Putting the yuan in the basket of IMF currencies is undoubtedly a step towards world financial leadership, and it is not without reason that serious American experts advise the United States and Europe to closely “partner” with China, this real economic force of the planet. Against the background of "fading" Europe, China really looks like a giant. More precisely, the cunning giant, able to benefit from any political situation for which the West does not know how to calculate the consequences.

        Sorry, that got into the top, the news relates to the state of the Amersk economy:
        degradation processes in American business are not weakening, but rather intensifying. For the 3rd quarter of 2015, the nominal revenue of the largest 780 US non-financial companies fell by 5.9% compared to the same period last year. Revenue in annual terms has been falling for the third quarter in a row, which clearly indicates at least a mild recession in the United States. This, incidentally, is completely contrary to the official statistics of US GDP, which is not surprising in the framework of an aggressive information war with enchanting substitution of concepts and disabling feedback.
        Companies cannot conspire among themselves synchronously to falsify reports, therefore, US statistics are lying, because the process of manipulating data in one unit is incomparably simpler than between thousands of contractors.

          The dynamics themselves are opposite, because company revenues are declining, and GDP is growing. At least, this has never happened in the entire history of observation.
          The aggregate nominal revenue of all major US non-financial companies is at the level of Q3 2011. Over 4 years, growth is zero. This is without taking into account price changes (inflation). Even without correction for asset growth. Indeed, during this time there have been many mergers and acquisitions, for many companies, revenue did not grow due to improved operating indicators, but due to the enlargement of the business.

        Finally, a normal sober comment. Thank you. Something no one asks the question, how did we live in the 60-70s? And now everyone is worried about China like this; China is like this, China is occupying Russia. Not the Chinese have created the conditions that people leave The Far East, and our government. China, by the way, is not profitable if the Russians leave the Far East. I did not find the dates for the congress of the CCP and the All-China Assembly of People's Representatives. These forums were held in China around 2004-2005. And the decisions of these congresses were in our analytical press. In "Arguments and Facts." Arguments and Life. "What was adopted in the decisions of these forums is beginning to turn into reality. But there is not a word about the seizure of our territories. But there are words about the removal of harmful and low-tech productions on the territory of adjacent statehood, including Russia.

And then in the article only the author’s statement and these statements carefully lead us to the idea that we are not led by very competent people. For some reason, some people who choose to analyze economic relations pay attention to short-term profit and completely miss the analysis of profit in the medium and long term.

      This business is nothing personal, but it’s brewed, but the Chinese pay on time. And what are these unfavorable conditions - is gas tied to the price of oil? Or something else. We were forcibly forced to sign the agreement, the prices there are European, and even Belarus didn’t support us, and you are China! China is a trading country, not a military monster and its instruments are economic, but the pancake from Ukraine and the Caucasus has more problems than from China.

      This is a really good question.

      In fact, the inclusion of the yuan in the basket of reserve currencies means a real start to the sunset of the US dollar. Yuan is truly an alternative currency, i.e. a currency representing a different financial and economic system, unlike the yen, pound and euro.

      I do not think that the Chinese sold it alone. Most likely, this means that part of the global financial elites decided to "renew the blood" - to transfer assets to yuan. Last week it became known that Mr. Sorros began to actively transfer his shares of Western companies, mainly American, to the cache, selling them at a loss. That says a lot. This probably means that the American economy, along with its grandiose debts, decided to merge. For China, this means that American debts will be "forgiven" (under 1,5 trillion dollars). Like in the song: "Nothing on Earth passes for free ..."

      From a political point of view, China could bargain for temporary neutrality. They hardly agreed on more. Although, if my assumptions about the "financial flow" are true, for China this may result in the loss of part of sovereignty. This means that the deal between the "Celestial Empire" and the "Yellow Devil" has taken place or is being prepared. None of the financial tycoons will bet on the new currency without receiving the corresponding guarantees.

      Well, let's observe ...

When Medvedev asked our CEO, why does the company have investments from abroad, including from China? The response of the general director was: “We turned to the Russian government and were refused. Russia does not need mining and processing enterprises.” And about the territories, I have already written more than once, he needs them only to remove harmful and consumer goods from China as well as a shield covering China from the north.

        About a friend did not write. Although in the 50s a poster was distributed - "Russian and Chinese - friendship forever."

    In Washington, they tricked China quite adroitly, because Asians are always flattered by international recognition, even if there is no benefit from it.

    Russia was punished for actions in eastern Ukraine by denying access to capital markets in the West. What did Russia do? Appealed to the Chinese. However, Beijing did not speak with Russia as a friend: the Chinese, the authors write, set out to "conduct a dialogue from a position of strength." It took some time, and it turned out: Beijing, using the situation, deftly imposed Moscow on disadvantageous conditions under two gas agreements (referring to the Power of Siberia gas pipeline). Gazprom, which had nowhere to go, was forced to agree to the unfavorable price conditions imposed by Beijing. The conditions, the authors note, are so unprofitable that the profit will hardly pay back the costs of developing the deposits.

    Well, cheers, again, will you again joyfully yell about Putin’s policies? By the way, the external, in which, as you rest, everything is fine.
    And all this “getting up-with-kalen” will be at least 8 more years.

    Yes, that was understandable, ten years ago. What friendship can there be with China (they breed like rabbits and they need territory, and not “friendship” they have already conquered our Far East - the Russians are fleeing from there, and the Chinese are a brazen nation, they are spoiling even where they live .. . well, the fact that they "heated up" Gazprom (including us - so it was also clear from the very beginning ... we are suckers, and suckers must be punished ...

      The territory undeveloped by the Chinese themselves is like dirt. In reality, they still do not need new ones, if only for the distant future ...

    The dawn of the Chinese economy was due to the fault of the West because of its greed and short-sighted policies. The transfer of high-tech enterprises from the USA and Europe to China, investments and cheap labor played a big role in the development of the economy and science.
    Only now, the United States realized that they had made a strategic mistake and transferred finance and technology to their rival.

    Gazprom, which had nowhere to go, was forced to agree to unfavorable pricing conditions imposed by Beijing. The conditions, the authors note, are so unprofitable that profits can barely recoup the costs of developing deposits.

    Oh come on. In Gazprom, there are no particularly heavy sighs about Chinese contracts. And in Gazprom, by no means whipping boys work. That one is a snap ...

    China is not a friend of Russia. This should be understood by every Russian. They are only interested in their own benefits. This is a nation of merchants. The Chinese lived a day in vain if he did not outwit someone. Notice this is not about cheating. Russia butts with the EU and the USA and China wins. Profiting from our problems!

        And despite the fact that the Chinese skillfully use these conflicts. If you don’t know, I can explain. Most of the foreign firms have representative offices and factories in China and some transactions are made through China. So delivering goods that came under the embargo, even from Russia to the west or from The Chinese always have commissions in the West to Russia. Then replacing Western goods with their own is crowding out the European Union from the Russian markets. Here is the profit for you. And I can say that the quality of Chinese goods is better than before. And electronics from China is 90 % of the world production of components. And you need to understand that there are no friends in the world, but there are trading partners. And the old truth sounds best: the friendship of two women, a conspiracy against a third. A union of two countries conspires against a third country.

    In international relations, there are no friends at all. Moreover, from the point of view of China, there is the Middle Kingdom and there are other "barbaric" countries.

    If you adhere to the partnership policy, then Beijing will learn: it was accepted into the international financial order.
    Yeah, they also accepted Russia and how it ended negative The same trap we fell into at one time.

    The USSR lifted and essentially built up the entire industry of China, receiving in return a treacherous blow to the back, which they prefer to keep quiet about the war in the Far East, now Russia is arming and pulling China on its hump, history unfortunately teaches nothing.

    The strengthening of China is threatening to turn into a catastrophe. Go to the Chinese Internet, read their patriotic cries about the return of the northern territories. And these are not pimple teens writing to each other. This is the policy of China.
    "Peace Chinese" hammer shells on our border. The oligarchy raved for 20 years that Turkey was our ally until they shot down our plane. Now the same nonsense is about the same "ally" - China. Only those will not bring down the plane - for them it will be small ...

      "On the official website of the Ministry of Defense of China
      http://military.people.com.cn/n/20…/1123/c1011-27844791.html
      an article was published that selected Chinese units on the border with Russia conduct military exercises.
      沈 阳 军区 装甲 旅 实弹 射击 99 坦克 新型 穿甲弹 现 真 身
      Translation of the message:
      The armored forces of the Shenyang Military District (on the border with Russia) fired, the latest Type 99 tanks fired armor-piercing shells. "
      So much for the strengthening of the chinasies on our head. Our tanks, shells, probably also ours. Well, of course, not Medvedev will be in the trenches.

    China has achieved its goal: since the world workshop for the production of goods, then they must respect us. And we? Then at the time of A.S. Pushin recall:
    "My uncle has the most honest rules,
    When not a joke fell ill,
    He respected himself forced
    And I couldn’t think of it better. "
    The whole world seems to be waiting for Russia to end and what can be gained from this. Jackal, in a word. But both the USA and the ever-rolling Europe, and even the Chinese, are mistaken. Russia is and will be. I wish there were more brains in my head, but I would periodically get rid of pests, it would be very good.
