The US Dollar Gains Another BRICS Rival Nation


As America’s economic rivals gain momentum, Cameroon’s recent expression of interest in joining the BRICS alliance underscores the bloc’s growing power in challenging the dominance of the US dollar. With 36 countries vying for BRICS membership this year, the alliance’s push to de-dollarize global trade poses a direct threat to the stability of the US economy. THIS EXPANSION COULD TRIGGER HYPERINFLATION IF THE DOLLAR FLOODS BACK TO THE HOMELAND, highlighting the urgent need for the US to reassess its economic strategies amidst escalating global tensions.

A handful of developing countries in Asia, Africa, and Eastern Europe are looking to join the BRICS alliance in 2024. South African Foreign Minister Naledi Pandor confirmed recently that around 36 countries have formally applied to join BRICS this year. Amid the joining frenzy, another country has thrown its hat in the ring in the hopes of joining the alliance. The development indicates that the bloc is becoming powerful in its agenda to de-dollarize the world and promote local currencies.

The latest and new country to express its interest in joining the BRICS alliance is the African nation Cameroon. Russian Ambassador Georgy Todua confirmed that Cameroon has expressed its interest in being a part of the bloc in 2024. Cameroon is on the Gulf of Guinea and is a Central African country with varied terrain and wildlife.

“BRICS is becoming an increasingly more prestigious international organization. Cameroon closely follows the transformations that are taking place in the world, changes in the international architecture and economic models of development,” he said.

“In this regard, the BRICS issue takes its place in Yaounde’s foreign policy planning, given the close and diverse ties the republic has with China, India, South Africa, Egypt, Brazil and, of course, Russia,” said the Ambassador.

A new expansion could make several countries stand in line to trade in local currencies and not the US dollar. Read here to know how many sectors in the US will be affected if BRICS ditches the dollar for trade.

BRICS is convincing the majority of developing countries to join the alliance and strengthen their native economies and local currencies. The move adds pressure on the US dollar and economy as America will find it hard to import its currency. If the USD returns to the homeland, the chances of the American economy reaching hyperinflation remain high.
