BRICS Moving away from The US Dollar



The move away from the U.S. dollar is yet another reaction to Western sanctions placed on Russia since it annexed Crimea from Ukraine in March.

    Russia and Iran have agreed to use their own national currencies in bilateral trade transactions rather than the U.S. dollar.

    An original agreement to trade in rials and rubles was made earlier this month in a meeting between Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak and Iranian Oil Minister Bijan Namdar Zanganeh.

    Similarly, Russia and China also agreed to trade with each other using the ruble and yuan in early September, following a Russian deal with North Korea in June to trade in rubles.

Where is this headed? Consolidation is the bare minimum. But, depending on the real economy, it could be worse.
