News Date: March 1, 2022

BRICS is the acronym denoting the emerging national economies of Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa.
It is a growing eastern world alliance led by China.
In another effort to reduce their dependence on the US dollar, BRICS members have been building their own global payment infrastructures for international transactions that are independent of the US dollar and can serve as alternatives to SWIFT, the leading messaging network for financial transactions worldwide.
This allows BRICS members, especially those who are often subjects of US sanctions, to create their own rules for international banking and settlement. Moreover, by extending alternative financial infrastructure to other countries and regions, BRICS can create greater buy-in for their own system and increase their financial and political influence through this alternative system.
Some BRICS members have independently developed their own cross-border payment mechanisms in recent years.
Both Russia and China have launched their national alternatives to the SWIFT global banking network and introduced their systems to broader global markets. Source: www.cambridge.org

Gold Is the Most Stable Currency

If gold didn't retain its purchasing power, why would long-term investors and central banks store it in their vaults for decades? Hardly is gold used for industrial applications, so, again, why hold large stocks of gold if it would lose its value over time? The truth is that gold retains its value, and the stability of gold's purchasing power in the long-term is the main reason to own it.
