BRICS Adopts Digital Economy

From January 17 to 19, 2024, the Moscow City Government delegation participated in the Smart Cities India Expo in New Delhi.
Sergey Cheremin, Minister of the Moscow City Government, addressed the exhibition's opening and engaged in various sessions in the business program.

One of the most promising areas of our cooperation is undoubtedly information technology and the digital economy. India and Russia are striving to become leaders in this field, and joining forces can create a synergistic effect," Cheremin stated.
In December of the previous year, China and Russia announced a groundbreaking test for a hack-proof quantum communication link using the Mozi satellite.
The BRICS alliance, having dominated the geopolitical sector in 2023, announced a six-country expansion plan during the Annual Summit.
Now, as attention turns to 2024, both Russia and India, amidst the BRICS initiative, are collaborating on a digital economy and expressing commitment to developing a native BRICS currency, rumored to be blockchain-based.
Also, the BRICS Pay system was launched last year to rival the Western SWIFT payment system and establish BRICS-based alternatives.

H.R.5404, a bill to define the dollar as a fixed weight of gold

H.R. 5404 is a bill introduced by Rep. Alex Mooney (R-WV2) that would bring the U.S. back to the gold standard once and for all. It would take effect exactly 30 months after the bill was passed, to allow an adjustment period in the American economy. Interestingly for a Republican-introduced bill, if the bill was enacted any time after July 2018, that 30-month window would come under the administration of the 2020 election.
