Russia’s President Vladimir Putin has expressed his disdain for the global U.S. dollar- based payments system so many times that few are still paying attention. The problem is that every time Putin speaks, his position grows stronger from the time before.

Russia is buying about 30 tons of gold per month and has increased its gold reserves from 600 tons to 2,000 tons over the past 10 years. Russia is also working with some of the world’s most sophisticated software developers to build a heavily encrypted state-of-the-art digital distributed ledger that can support a Russian-backed cryptocurrency possibly backed by gold.

These efforts are done in conjunction with similar efforts by the Chinese. As this article reports, the endgame is an alternative global payments system that will substitute for SWIFT and be controlled by Russia and China with participation by countries including Turkey, Iran, North Korea and possibly many others.

This alternative system will exclude the U.S. and U.S. dollars, finally creating a way for nations to trade and settle balance of payments without using dollars and without relying on portals such as SWIFT and Fedwire that are controlled by the U.S. In turn, this means that U.S. economic sanctions will no longer be effective because countries will have an easy way around them using this new nondollar system.

Putin is insistent on this new system and is close to achieving it. When the new system is rolled out, you won’t be able to say you weren’t warned.

The climate alarmists have grabbed most of the headlines for the past ten

WHY TRUMP WILL WIN REELECTION: NOT POLLS OR PUNDITS; JUST COMMON SENSE

Political analysts use polls, betting odds, historic trends and other inputs to make their (usually wrong) political predictions. We all remember that “experts” said Hillary Clinton would win the presidency in 2016 (they gave her a 92% chance on the morning of the election), and that the UK would vote to “remain” in the EU

KRUGMAN SHOWS HE KNOWS LITTLE ABOUT ECONOMICS AND LESS ABOUT FINANCE

We already knew that Nobel Prize winner Paul Krugman knows almost nothing about economics. Now, we see from this article that he knows nothing about banking either. Krugman claims that the repeal of Glass-Steagall and the actions of banks in general were not the cause of the 2008 financial crisis. The conventional wisdom is that Lehman Brothers,
