Russia and China have now pooled their efforts in order to make their dreams of a stronger rouble and yuan come true. The currency wars raging around the world are just the tip of the iceberg, the famous US trader Russ Winter says. China has launched a series of manoeuvres to wrest away from the dollar its current status as the planet’s main reserve currency. In accordance with a long-standing Chinese tradition, the strategy of that war is based on deception.
The two allies’ plan is as follows: first they want to put a tight noose around the dollar’s neck, and then, when a convenient moment comes, kick the chair out from under the United States.
