In this article, we will highlight the 10 U.S. sectors that could be severely affected if BRICS launch their currency. BRICS is an acronym for Brazil, Russia, India, China, and South Africa.

10 U.S. Sectors To Be Impacted With The Launch of BRICS Currency

A total of 10 financial sectors in the U.S. could be affected by the launch of a new BRICS currency. They include banking, trade, and tourism, among others. The U.S. financial sectors that could be impacted by the formation of the new BRICS currency are:

  1. Global Financial System
  2. International Trade and Investment
  3. Energy and Commodity Markets
  4. Banking and Finance
  5. Travel and Tourism
  6. Capital Markets
  7. Consumer Goods and Retail
  8. Government and Policy
  9. Technology and Fintech
  10. Production and Consumption

All these sectors are closely linked to the U.S. dollar and operate globally with the exchange of the USD currency. Also, if BRICS convinces other developing countries to ditch the U.S. dollar, the geopolitical dynamics could alter world trade relations. In addition, if banking and finance take the first hit, the negative development could spill over to the commodities and foreign exchange markets.

Similarly, the domino effect could topple all the sectors bringing turmoil into the American economy. Moreover, if the U.S. fails to fund its deficit, prices of all commodities could skyrocket or even reach hyperinflation.

In conclusion, the fate of the U.S. dollar depends if the BRICS alliance will launch a new currency or not. The greenback remains at the crossroads of a shift into the new financial order dominated by the East and not the West.
