News Date: January 16, 2024

Billionaire entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy claims BRICS is developing a gold-backed currency to replace the U.S. dollar as the world's primary reserve currency.
"This is a major problem for the United States.
This would permanently increase our borrowing cost if the dollar is no longer the established reserve currency of the world.
So yes, actually, that does matter. The right way to deal with it, though, is not to try to swat that down, but increase the value proposition of the dollar itself by pegging the dollar to hard commodities," he stated in a press conference.
Vivek Ramaswamy dropped out of the presidential race and endorsed Donald Trump. Known for supporting currencies backed by commodities, his alliance with Trump suggests a shared vision for economic stability and challenges to traditional fiat systems.

Trump's Fed Nominee Advocates a Gold-Backed Currency, Even a Crypto One

Judy Shelton, President Trump's nominee for the Federal Reserve board of governors, has advocated for getting back to a gold standard, possibly "in a very cryptocurrency way." In an interview, Judy Shelton told reporters:
"I don't see it so much as returning [to the gold standard], more like 'back to the future.' I think that what a gold standard stands for is monetary discipline for its own sake. Money is supposed to be a unit of account, a reliable measure and a dependable store of value. It really shouldn't be subject to who's the chairman of the Federal Reserve."
