Recent tariffs announced by the USA are a transparent effort to get out ahead of the curve?

They don't want to be seen as reacting to the potential adverse effect on the petro dollar.

If anything it is a reaction of too little too late, damage is already done.

Here's a scary thought ...

What if the gold backed Yuan marks the return to gold backed currencies.

The elimination of gold back currencies unleashed the most ravenous greed the world has ever known ... stretched the elastic to the extreme.

If the elastic snaps back ... that's gonna hurt! :-k

Some people remember the price Qaddafi for his attempt a few years ago.

A gold backed Yuan and Ruble will be disastrous for the debt fiat currency of the United States petroleum dollar which is probably why we're seeing antagonism towards Russia or China now.

One thing is certain ... no mere mortal(s) can prevent it ... whatever 'it' is. :-)
