IMF member countries are receiving their shares of new SDRs, of about US$650 billion, the largest in the funds history! This is a shot in the arm for the world and will help bolster confidence and strengthen the resilience of the global economy.
The SDR is an international reserve asset created by the IMF to supplement the official reserves of its member countries.
The SDR is not a currency. It is a potential claim on the freely usable currencies of IMF members. As such, SDRs can provide a country with liquidity.
A SDR is not a loan & is cost-free for all IMF members. Unlike an extended fund facility, the government does not have to request any arrangement & there is no repayment involved. All member countries can use their allocated SDRs unconditionally.
IMF urges wealthy nations to direct $650 billion SDR share to vulnerable countries.
Zimbabwe to use more than half of IMF funds to prop up the currency.

BRICS trade has grown remarkably

The BRICS group witnessed a remarkable surge in their trade activities over the five-year period from 2017 to 2022.
According to a report by Bloomberg, these nations collectively bolstered their economic ties and achieved a staggering 56% growth in their trade volumes during this period.
This significant increase underscores the growing economic significance of this influential bloc on the global stage.
In the year 2022, the combined trade turnover among the BRICS nations reached an impressive milestone, amounting to a staggering $422 billion.
This substantial figure demonstrates the remarkable economic prowess and potential of the BRICS group, solidifying its status as a major player in the international trade landscape.
In a recent statement, Russian President Vladimir Putin argued that the BRICS group has already surpassed the G7 nations in terms of the purchasing power parity (PPP) of their populations.
This claim highlights the rising economic strength and consumer power of BRICS countries, potentially reshaping the global economic landscape and challenging the traditionally dominant position of the G7.

Gold standard strategy and the collapse of dollar

The dollar is no longer pegged to gold, but it is still the world's reserve currency. Over 60% of the foreign bank reserves are currently held in US Dollars.
There have been efforts by numerous countries (led by China and Russia) to dethrone the US Dollar as the world's reserve currency. China has been reducing its exposure to the Dollar for a long time, and both China, as well as Russia, have been stocking up on gold in recent times.
Central banks added 650 tons to their reserves in 2019, the second highest shift in 50 years, after the 656 tons added in 2018. Before the 2007-09 financial crisis, central banks were net sellers of gold worldwide for decades. Leading the recent spree has been China, Russia, Turkey, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan.
China can escape the fate of a dollar collapse by tying the yuan to gold. There is little doubt she has access to sufficient gold. Currently, her interest is to preserve the dollar, not destroy it, because it is the principal means of Chinese foreign interests being secured.

The Golden Jubilee and the return to gold standard

On 15 August 1971, US President Richard Nixon officially announced that the country was completely abandoning the gold standard.
This meant that the US government abandoned the convertibility of US dollars into gold at a fixed rate of $35 per ounce.
The government simply could not meet the demand to exchange dollars received for goods and services for gold.
The jubilee in its original, biblical meaning when once in 50 years the sold and mortgaged lands were returned to their original owners, slaves and prisoners of war were freed, debts were forgiven, and the land rested from fieldwork.
Why not, 2022 may be the year for the return of the gold standard.

Why is gold valuable?

Gold is abundant enough to create coins but rare enough so that not everyone can produce them. Gold doesn't corrode, providing a sustainable store of value, and humans are physically and emotionally drawn to it. Societies and economies have placed value on gold, thus perpetuating its worth.
Gold cannot be destroyed by Water, Time, Fire.
Gold doesn't need Feeding, Fertilizer, Maintenance.
Gold is Malleable, Ductile, Beautiful, Rare.
