Japan and China Cutting Out US Dollar: $Billions to be Saved

“I will break the pride of your power” (Leviticus 26:19)


The US Dollar is again being removed as part of additional international trade:

1 June 2012…

China and Japan (China’s main trading partner) will no longer  use the U.S. dollar as the only currency in trade with each other. They will use  the Yuan and the Yen directly with each other. This will see the dollar removed from a large chunk of the world’s trade –in itself, not a very large percentage,  but a significant one. It’s the start of a trend that is set to grow…The purpose of foreign exchange and gold reserves is to provide ‘global money’  (which includes gold) for potential rainy days.

ChinaJapan Currency Deal Ushers in a New Era

This will be the first time that China has allowed a major currency, apart from the US dollar, to trade directly with the yuan…“This will help lower currency conversion costs for economic entities, facilitate the use of the yuan and Japanese yen in bilateral trade and investment, promote financial cooperation and enhance economic and financial ties between the two countries.”

…“This is part of China’s broader strategy to reduce dependence on the dollar. The yen has been chosen because of large trade flows between the two countries,” Reuters quoted Dariusz Kowalczyk, senior economist and strategist at Credit Agricole CIB in Hong Kong, as saying.

China and Japan to begin direct currency trading

China and Japan will start direct currency trading on Friday as Beijing marks another stage on its journey to internationalise the yuan…The official Xinhua news agency reported that the deal will save about $3.0 billion in annual costs tied to using the dollar in trade transactions.

Today, marks the first day this is happening.

This will cost the USA in many ways.

First, the USA will stop generating as much earnings by the US dollar no longer being an intermediary.  The USA has historically benefited disproportionately from international trade that it is not directly involved in because of the widespread use of the USA dollar at the currency of most cross-border trade.

Second, less US dollars now need to be held in reserves as the nations that reduce trading with it will need less of it.  This will mean that at some point, foreign holders will likely want to redeem those dollars for goods and services–goods and services that the USA is unlikely to be able to supply at current prices.  Amongst other things, this can lead to hyperinflation and a dramatic reduction in the value of the USA dollar and the standard of living in the USA.

Also, notice a prophecy from the Bible:

3 For the vision is yet for an appointed time; But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie. Though it tarries, wait for it; Because it will surely come, It will not tarry…5 Indeed, because he transgresses by wine, He is a proud man… 6 “Will not all these take up a proverb against him, And a taunting riddle against him, and say, ‘Woe to him who increases What is not his–how long? And to him who loads himself with many pledges’? 7 Will not your creditors rise up suddenly? Will they not awaken who oppress you? And you will become their booty. 8 Because you have plundered many nations, All the remnant of the people shall plunder you (Habakkuk 2:3,5,6-8).

Now, the USA is the largest debtor nation in the history of humanity. And while we are not yet to the point that its creditors will rise up suddenly, the moves by Japan and China are another step in that direction.  Europe already has a currency, the Euro (which it may modify), which had reduced its need for US dollars in trade.  Russia, Europe, and the Arab world have all taken steps the past few years to move away from the USA dollar.  Others nations, like Korea, will as well.

Third, as I wrote in 2012 and the Rise of the Secret Sect, the world is moving away from the US dollar and more towards gold and other currencies.  The move toward gold backing is a vote of lessor confidence in the US dollar.  And right now, the USA dollar is only backed by confidence in it (along with implied military threats).

The USA has long trusted in its wealth, dollar, and military.  Its pride in all of those will be broken (Leviticus 26:19) and the cracks are forming.

Fourth, the Bible tells of the time when the kings of the sunrise (Revelation 16:12) will get together militarily.  And while Japan and China are not military allies, today’s move joins them closer together.  And Bible prophecy involving what must be a higly Asian (with Russia as part of it) military will come to pass.
