The response to U.S. efforts to cheapen the dollar in 2010 — 2011 was not long in coming. It came from four directions — IMF, Russia, China, and Saudi Arabia. Enter the new world money: Petro-SDR.
Less than a year after Obama’s declaration of a new currency war, the IMF released a paper that is a blueprint for implementation of a new global reserve currency called the Special Drawing Right (SDR), or world money.
On December 1, 2015, the IMF announced that the Chinese yuan would be included in the basket of currencies used to determine the value of one SDR. With China onboard, the SDR is poised to become the de facto global reserve currency.
