Despite the paralyzing criticism and scrutiny that the US dollar usually receives, the currency mechanisms point towards its acute robustness and strength as it continues to thrive. Per NYT, the greenback is showing signs of progress by mimicking its earlier power surge of the 2000s.

The USD & Its Foes

Despite the stellar rise of the US dollar, the currency is often challenged by global budding economies. As the multi-polar concept gains prevalence in space, the US greenback is now being contested for supremacy in this space. With China & Russia echoing calls to ditch USD, the US dollar continues to waver but has shown resilience on all fronts. 

$260 billion worth of trade between China and Russia this year… but almost no US dollar will be used!

It will be 95% Chinese yuan and Russian ruble. Maybe some Euros involved.

This dedollarization will soon be replicated among all BRICS+ members.
