There has been a lot of talk lately about de-dollarization. As just one example, the BRICS nations recently announced they are developing a new currency.

The dollar may be king, but its throne is getting a little tippy.

China and Brazil recently finalized a trade deal in their own currencies completely bypassing the dollar, but that’s not the only bad news for the world’s reserve currency.

The credibility of the dollar is taking some self-inflicted blows. And the world is watching.
Could this hasten the end of the greenback as the world’s reserve currency?
