Washington versus Beijing: Curbing the Yuan

One of the monetary and financial tensions between China and the US is the possibility of the yuan becoming a reserve currency... Every five years, the IMF carries out a review of the reserve currency basket. The next review is due at the end of 2015. Experts believe that the Chinese currency meets all the requirements of a reserve currency... According to some reports, a number of countries (most notably Germany and Australia) might support China during the currency basket review in December 2015... Washington’s vote against the yuan could put paid to the International Monetary Fund once and for all, and this would lead to a radical restructuring of the global financial order that would not be to the benefit of Washington and the US dollar...

Western Aid to Ukraine Vanishes in Black Hole

...The system which has been established in Ukraine during the recent 23 years is called kleptocracy. It permeates the whole Ukrainian society from transport police to courts, from public utilities to state procurement. The 2014 coup made the situation worse. In 2014's Transparency International Corruption Perception Index was ranked 142nd out of the 175 countries investigated. It is placed near to Uganda, the Comoros, the Central African Republic, Cameroon, Nigeria and Papua - New Guinea. According to foreign investors the share of shade economy is 60 %...

Serbia and Greece: Some Parallels

As the new Greek government tries to free itself from the debt yoke being thrust on the Greeks by external creditors and, above all, the International Monetary Fund, the government circles of another Balkan country, Serbia, are dominated by a different mood altogether. Among Serbian politicians, officials and experts, there seems to be an understanding of the malignancy of the well-established practice of cooperating with the IMF...

Raw Awakening: Prospects for Ukraine’s EU Integration Slipping Away to Vanish beyond the Horizon

The Maidan revolution involved grassroots into the process of power change. The integration with the European Union was promulgated as one of the main goals. The association agreement was a step on the way. It was signed on March 21, 2014. A year has passed, but there are no tangible results. The prospects for integration have become even murkier than they were back then...

U.S. Asian, European «Allies» Pivot away from Washington

President Barack Obama’s much-heralded «Pivot to Asia» lies in tatters as European and Asian «allies» of the United States march away from the heavily U.S.-influenced Asian Development Bank (ADB) and International Monetary Fund (IMF), as well as the American-led World Bank, to join China’s Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB)... The world is recognizing that the era of «Pax Americana» is now over. Taking its place is a new «Pax Sinica» bolstered by support from the BRICS alliance and China’s new partners in the AIIB and New Development Bank.

Events in Greece Could Follow the Cypriot or Argentine Scenario

...With the debt and financial situation the way it is, Brussels (EU), Frankfurt (ECB) and Washington (IMF) can hardly risk making drastic decisions regarding Greek debt. After all, the response could be a declaration of default on the Greek government’s obligations, which total around €320 billion. It would be more than enough to cause a chain reaction involving the bankruptcies of European banks and companies which, in turn, could bring on government defaults and the collapse of the house of cards known as the European Union...

Program of Assistance to Ukraine – IMF and Kiev Join Together in Bluff Effort

US Franklin Resources, an American holding company, is the largest holder of Ukraine’s bonds... Franklin Resources company belongs to «financial vultures» which don’t restructure debts. They normally undermine the accords on restructuring reached with other investors... The Ukraine’s debt restructuring program will not yield the expected $15, 3 billion. It means that Ukraine may not get the next $5 billion tranche and the whole program so much praised and publicized by the International Monetary Fund may become just another example of financial impracticable scheme...

The Raiding of Ukraine’s Gold

...The falsification of gold reserve statistics began in the 1990s and was designed to conceal illegal gold transactions which involved, among others, the Bank of England and the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. Falsified statistics allow the theft of gold from the reserves of central banks and treasuries and its relocation to the vaults of the largest private funds and banks to be covered up... There is speculation that this is what has been done with Ukraine’s gold reserves...

Ukraine - Country Ruled By Most Corrupt Regime in the World

If somebody asked those who joined the Maidan protests a year ago what were the reasons for doing so, they would probably say that the rampant corruption was the last straw. The protests have become a thing of the past, the government has changed, and corruption has spread to be become practically all-pervading. The corruption in Ukraine is a unique and unparalleled phenomenon. The old hierarchic corruption system had its own rules and restrictions. Now corruption has no boundaries going out of running control...

Dollar Imperialism, 2015 Edition

 “The dollar is our currency, but it’s your problem.” This is what US Treasury Secretary John Connally said to his counterparts in the Rome G-10 meeting in November, 1971, shortly after the Nixon administration ended the dollar’s convertibility into gold and shifted the international monetary system into a global floating exchange rate regime. The world has been suffering from this “problem” ever since the US obtained the “exorbitant privilege” of issuing the world’s reserve and trade currency under the Bretton Woods system after WWII.
