America's European "Allies" Desert Obama, Join China-led Infrastructure Bank


Recommended Posts

It appears the sea of de-dollarization has reached the shores of Europe.

With Australia and UK having already moved in the direction of joining the China-led AIIB, The FT reports that

France, Germany, and Italy have now all agreed to join the development bank as 'pivot to Asia' appears to be Plan B for Europe.


Men doet kennelijk graag mee om een alternatief te hebben.

Of wat zit er achter behalve de-dollarization?

De-Dollarization Accelerates As More Of Washington's "Allies" Defect To China-Led Bank


Ignoring direct pleas from the Obama administration, Europe’s biggest economies have declared their desire to

become founding members of a new Chinese-led Asian investment bank that the United States views as a rival

to the World Bank and other institutions set up at the height of American power after World War II.


The announcement on Tuesday by Germany, France and Italy that they would follow Britain and join the

Chinese-led venture delivered a stinging rebuke to Washington from some of its closest allies. It also called

into question whether the World Bank and the International Monetary Fund, which grew out of a multination

conference in Bretton Woods, N.H., in 1944 and established an economic pecking order that lasted 70 years,

will find their influence diminished.

US "Isolated" As Key Ally Japan Considers Joining China-Led Bank


...and that means in short order Australia and South Korea will likely be on board and at that

point, the stigma the US has created around membership will have completely disappeared (if it

hasn’t already), opening the door for other US “allies” to join despite the bank’s alleged “low” standards.

Backgrounds en analyse door Alasdair Macleod:


The new order emerges


China and Russia have taken the lead in establishing the Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank (AIIB), seen as

a rival organisation to the World Bank and the Asian Development Bank, which are dominated by the United States with Europe and Japan.


These banks do business at the behest of the old Bretton Woods* order. The AIIB will dance to China and Russia’s tune instead.

Cracks In Washington’s Empire


"The Evil Empire is beginning to crack. It will crack more as the Russian-Chinese alliance unfolds its potentials and when European capitals understand that hegemonic Washington has put their existence at risk in order to try to prevent Russia’s rise. The crazed American and British neocon nazis, and their dupes among the populations, comprise the greatest human threat that the world has ever known. The sooner the Evil Empire collapses, the safer the world will be. "

As Moscow and Seoul throw their support behind China's Asian Infrastructure Investment Bank,

the question is no longer about the end of dollar hegemony but rather about the extent to which

the new venture will be used to institute a global shift towards the yuan.

This Is What The AIIB Is About



The AIIB is very much about developing the infrastructure connecting Asia, Europe and Africa.

For China to import resources such as oil, have strong export channels and to strengthen ties

with trading partners. The main significance of the AIIB is non-US cooperation which will further

weaken the US dollar hegemony and change the international monetary environment in the years to come.

China Becomes Global Lender Of Last Resort With Bailout Of World's Most Indebted Oil Company

It appears Beijing isn’t opposed to throwing billions behind serving as a lender of last resort and we can’t help but wonder

if the new round of Petrobras financing is indicative of where China will steer initial AIIB funding — that is, into oil and into Washington's backyard.
