BRICS De-Dollarization Coincides with US Recession as Debt Concerns Grow

The BRICS economic alliance has been growing prominently over the last year. Indeed, it has enacted its first expansion since 2001, welcoming five additional nations. Moreover, it has only increased its de-dollarization initiatives in an effort to further establish contention from global south nations.

All of those BRICS activities may well be creating a perfect storm. Indeed, one expert says the US is already in recession, with increasing debt potentially driving further crisis. Indeed, Danielle DiMartino Booth discussed the United STates’ fragile economy, highlighted by decreasing job data.

US economic data shows that, although more jobs than expected were added in March, unemployment has increased. In February, that figure reached 1.7 million according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Booth notes that employment issues are a massive part of the uncertainty within economic data. Specifically, they note that “every time companies report their earnings, they’re doing it with a kicker that says, ‘Hey, we’re going to lay off 2,00 people to 1,500 people or whatever it is.”

That has already put a drain on the economic fragility. However, increasing debt is an entirely separate issue of concern. $34.5 trillion in federal debt has resulted in the public sector “sucking the life out of the private sector,” Booth stated.

Booth added, “We have to spend less as a country to let the private sector really come out and drive the economy.” Yet, that’s become increasingly difficult with the dollar’s current questions. The inflationary concerns and debt issues are only compounded dollar worries. Specifically, international efforts to limit the usage of the greenback in trade.
