De-Dollarization: Global Yuanization Is One Step Closer, Thanks To London

The Government of China promotes the internationalization of “the people’s currency” (‘renminbi’) through a policy of alliances that does not take ideological barriers into account. In a first moment the diplomatic forces of the yuan were concentrated in the Asia-Pacific, but in a second moment, it became necessary to gain the support of the West. … Continue reading

The BRICS And American Global Power

By James Parisot China’s rise has shaken up the global order. As East Asian governments, along with the United States, remain unable to develop a mutual security agreement over disputed islands, and the US pushes the Trans-Pacific Partnership to the exclusion of China as an alternative to the stagnating World Trade Organization, East Asia is riven … Continue reading

How Beijing And The West Work Together To Manipulate The Global Currency War

By Brendan Brown From reading the commentaries you might have imagined that the process of a currency winning international reserve status depends on getting the IMF seal of approval.

U.S. Pacific Hegemony Vs. A Rising China – OpEd

By Tony Cartalucci The complexity and history behind the current tensions in Asia Pacific are belied by simplistic narratives underpinned by superficial nationalism.

Building The Southern Silk Road

By Vijay Prashad On September 22, a seemingly nondescript meeting was held in Tehran, Iran: The Road Maintenance and Transportation Organisation (RMTO) held its first expert meeting for the Iran-India-Afghanistan Agreement on Transit and International Transportation Cooperation.
