A suo dire il potere di veto all’IMF (Fondo Monetario Internazionale) sinora ce l’hanno avuto solo gli americani ...
(...) BRICS stands for Brazil... Russia... India... China... and South Africa.
Not one of those countries is a match for the U.S. on the voting floor. Or in the world economy. But banded together -- in 2017 -- they'll finally have us beat.
Consider, our share of the world economy has plunged by nearly half since 1960. We're now cranking out just 25% of the wealth in the world, each year.
The BRICS have soared in size, with combined economic might that's nearly triple what it was in the '90s... bigger than the size of the EU... and nearly equal to the U.S.
When that chart you just saw was made, the BRICS share of the vote totaled 14.2%.
At the G-20 meeting that just happened, it bumped up to 14.89%.
Remember you need 15% at the IMF to get veto power.
In fact Vladimir Putin himself said at that meeting...
"[We're] a step away from 15-percent blocking threshold. Without a doubt, we have to move forward to carry out an IMF reform..."
This is exactly the move that will get triggered by the move into 2017 event in April.
The G-20 - including Obama and the IMF - gave a written promise to crank up the BRICS voting rights to match with their "relative positions in the world economy."
Allow me to translate...
The BRICS now run 22.4% of the world GDP. They now get just 14.9% of the vote in world financial decisions. They only need .1% more to get veto power.
Chances are they'll get more, as much as 16% or 17%. (...)
I BRICKS sono probabilmente ad un passo dal potere avere anche loro potere di veto all’IMF.
Mica poco, in effetti.
Ok, niente di cosi’ drammatico allora ... solo l’ennesimo chiodino sulla bara del dollaro e del predominio americano sul mondo intero, unica superpotenza e polizia del pianeta. Ma sara’ vero? Beh, Rickards non mi pare un contaballe, anzi ... sicuramente vedremo i titoloni su tutti i giornali e TG e tutti a discuterne per mesi, giustamente .... o no?! ;D
