Another Country Jumps Ship On U.S. Dollar For Chinese Bilateral Trade

April 1, 2013 by  

China and Australia have entered into an agreement that will allow for the direct converting of the Australian dollar to the Chinese Yuan, in the process cutting the U.S. Dollar’s present status as a reserve currency out of the conversion process.

The move makes Australia, already a major consumer of Chinese goods, the first non-BRICS Nation to agree to buy and sell directly with China in its native currency. It differs from previous bilateral economic agreements between China and other countries, which thus far have provided for currency swaps, but never a direct conversion from a trading partner’s currency to the Yuan.

Instead, the U.S. Dollar has stood as the reserve currency for Chinese trading relationships with other countries – although China’s push to supplant the Dollar with its own currency in bilateral trade agreements is gradually marginalizing the Dollar’s status, as this Zero Hedge article details.

Ben Bullard

Reconciling the concept of individual sovereignty with conscientious participation in the modern American political process is a continuing preoccupation for staff writer Ben Bullard. A former community newspaper writer, Bullard has closely observed the manner in which well-meaning small-town politicians and policy makers often accept, unthinkingly, their increasingly marginal role in shaping the quality of their own lives, as well as those of the people whom they serve. He argues that American public policy is plagued by inscrutable and corrupt motives on a national scale, a fundamental problem which individuals, families and communities must strive to solve. This, he argues, can be achieved only as Americans rediscover the principal role each citizen plays in enriching the welfare of our Republic.

    Hey, America! Between Ben the Twit Bernanke and Obummer, we need no enemies in this life. If you are sure you’re living in the real world, this act alone MUST tell you that Obummer doesn’t care about the dollar, the U S economy OR America.
    This would be a good time to put images of politicians on our currency. That is, currency that also doubles as toilet paper. Any suggestions on which face belongs on which denomination? Think of the possibilities, folks. Let’s try it. What do we have to lose?
    Think of it as a form of modern “art.”
