thanks Sliadon, made that much clearer , i just dont understand how that process would go through with all the chaos that could be going on in that time

if a civil war does break out and the banks start dropping like flies, i cant see why it would be a good idea.

But until then, ill keep myself debt free

with the coming collapse of the dollar, would any debt would be completely erased and lost ?

I was wondering the same thing... but i guess if everyone did this it would be anarchy.

Not a problem man

I'd like to think that this will become nothing, but I am watching it closely along with a handful of other international issues trying to figure out if I need to get prepared also.

With all the banks collapsing, now THAT would be a scary situation. There would be martial law declared in every nation to keep control of the situation. Imagine a Stock Market collapse on a global scale but add in modern MSM and increased stakes nations hold around the world.

For me it's the best time to run up credit card debts. If you want to try it too just make sure you meet the following criteria.

1. You live in a country with a welfare system that will keep a roof over your head if you get made redundant (for me that's the UK).

2. You live in rented accommodation.

3. You live in a country where you cannot be imprisoned for owing money.

4. You have no dependants.

Since June of 2007 just before Gold rocketed and northern rock hit the fans I have been exclusively using my credit cards. I saw it coming. I'm out of work due to disability with over £35,000 in credit card limits, and the limits keep going up! whats that all about? One card is up to £11,000.

So when my minimum payments can no longer be met by my bank balance I will inform them that I have no money, they can garnishee £2.40 a week and stuff the rest.

Don't try this at home folks, unless you know the system. Revenge is sweet and best served cold!

SDR proposal helped rebuff China critics -Zhou

Zhou proposed an overhaul of the global monetary system, outlining how the dollar could eventually be replaced as the world's main reserve currency by Special Drawing Rights (SDR), the International Monetary Fund's unit of account.

Rich nations give India and China more sway in IMF

New world economic order takes shape at G20

I would not use the term 'honesty' or 'integrity' in the same sentence as 'U.S. mainstream media'. The terms are mutually exclusive.

What I know for sure is that you don't openly rob the treasury of a country that will remain a viable governing entity. The coming destruction of the currency is just another building block to the plan for the destruction of the US.

I don't mean to derail this but I have to say it....

Not to sound like a D*ck, but you are the reason people are paying more! To take care of your damn DEBT. Granted I (we) have to pay back the Governments Debt, I don't want to take care of yours to.

I know your in the UK, but come on.

The sdr is not only a type of reserve note it is a weighted scale. You could say that currency will be SDR backed.

Instead of common forex statements such as Euro is trading at 1.50 US, you would say that the Euro has a SDR value of 1 and the USD has SDR value of .75 etc. Pardon my estimation lol.

The SDR will be a requirement. No international selling or buying with a member nation unless you are from a member nation. And most countries make their money by trading with would be member nations.

Both good and bad at the same time. Bad for the USD, no doubt, but good on real producers with undervalued currency. Especially good for intellectual property / piracy etc. Countries like China will lose value based on intellectual theft etc. There will be "global financial constitution/guiding principles/ethics laws" in place as part of signing on. Much like the WTO has.

Global financial cops. Bad and good, depending which side of the fence you are on at any given time.

I have been lurking for quite a while but just registered because I saw this thread though Mandarin is not my mother language but I understand it. The video is just about some Chinese official visiting a village in China. It has nothing to do with G20 or anything of that kind.

And I found another link, the person who uploaded the video has admitted it was actually an April Fool's joke.

Your comment is very similar to a comment on the page you linked.

I speak Chinese. The video has nothing to do with what the title nor the caption indicates. The video was in fact about a visit of a Chinese official to a local village. It is not at all about the G20. Makes me wonder if the maker of the video made an innocent mistake or was the mishap intentional.

So this could be correct or your parroting a comment on the youtube page, just sayin....

An interesting article in the WSJ puts this in perspective.

The IMF had said Wednesday that China agreed to purchase approximately $50 billion worth of bonds denominated in Special Drawing Rights, a fund-raising effort that is part of a broader push to bolster the IMF's resources. Brazil and Russia have also said they each intend to buy as much as $10 billion of bonds from the IMF, which hasn't issued debt before.

Here, the IMF is issuing credit, like a bank. And the credit is in SDR's

The SDR is strictly electronic money, opening the gate for the chip and global currency, global rule.

The dollar is going to tank, so the US will be forced into accepting the SDR,
at a greatly reduced rate, putting the US further into debt.

No choice, no freedom.

Edit to add:

The crazy this is, guess where the IMF is headquartered.

International Monetary Fund
700 19th Street, N.W.
Washington, D.C. 20431

In the District of Columbia, a separate entity from the UNITED STATES of America.

The people have lost all sovereignty.

Im calling hogwash aswell.Things like this take years to change,not in a few days,plus as far as i can see there is absolute no evidence for any of these assumptions.No doubt the dollar will be replaced as a reserve currency in the future.

Brits using SDR's as a currency within a few days
what nonsense.

hey sol
it's unfortunate that you think so but if you read my other posts in this thread which link to articles discussing this then you will see that it is not "far fetched".

The IMF has accepted China and India amongst others into the big boys club and there is serious discussion and a drive, to change the principal reserve currency to something else completely.

Do some reading and don't fall for the idiots posting that he is discussing food or whatnot.

An educated mind is a dangerous mind.

Sure, go ahead. If you believe everything on ATS, the world is coming to an end in 2012, so may as well get as many loans and credit cards as you can.

"Focus on Zhongguancun" is a programme on Beijing TV station, it talks about technology. I'm not sure if it's still broadcasting because I don't live in Beijing.

Here is an" target="_blank" class="postlink">example, it talks about energy saving. The guy in the video is the Chairman of this company.

Sorry none of those are in English, but I guess you could use google translate to translate what it says about that video.

Edit: fix the link
