The international power structure has undergone significant changes in recent years, with the emergence of dedollarization as a new economic wave. Dedollarization refers to the process of moving away from the domination of the US dollar, and it has significant political implications, according to Brazilian journalist and researcher in geostrategic studies, Lucas Laros.
The New Power Centers
The power structure is changing, with China emerging as the primary economic center and Russia as the military center. This shift indicates the need for Western powers to neutralize these threats to maintain their hegemony in a multipolar world. The BRICS alliance consisting of Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa is critical for the progress of BRICS+ and other related projects
The Need for Consolidation Within BRICS
However, there are concerns about its stability as Brazil and India have unstable relations with China and Russia. Consolidation is needed within the BRICS alliance before it becomes BRICS+. The alliance also aims to establish a common currency for its member states. The Chinese Renminbi (Yuan) is being positioned as an alternative currency for countries who do not wish to hold dollars as their reserve.
A Multipolar World Monetary System on the Horizon
In the near future, a multipolar world monetary system is likely, as there is a gradual transition away from a hegemonic currency or a single superpower. This shift gives countries the power to align themselves with multiple countries and negotiate without any one country dominating the conversation. The West perceives Taiwan as the next target, and China’s negotiations with other countries using the yuan are pointing towards changes on the global front.
The BRICS summit demonstrates the emergence of a world with China at the head of economic commitments and Russia focusing on the military, while other countries like India, South Africa, and Brazil factor into the union’s formation. The changes affecting the global power structure have significant implications for politics, economics, and military
Implications for the Future
The consolidation of the BRICS alliance and the establishment of a common currency for its members will be crucial in the move towards a multipolar world monetary system. This shift will ultimately give countries more power to negotiate with multiple countries without any one country dominating the conversation. This transition is significant and has far-reaching implications for many countries worldwide, particularly those with significant trade relations with China and Russia.
In conclusion, the shift towards a dedollarized world monetary system is one that has been gaining significant momentum in recent years. The emergence of China and Russia as the primary economic and military centers respectively has created a multipolar world that gives countries more power to align themselves with multiple nations. While the transition to a new monetary system will not be easy, it presents a significant opportunity for many countries worldwide.
