Yesterday on the PPN weekend special, I suggested a possibility for any sane Westerner who wants to transact real financial business in the future. I said find a plausible third-party nation, still linked to the SWIFT charade but poised to leap to Mir-CIPS. Argentina is now such an option, possibly and potentially.

Argentina wants the BRICS emerging economies to admit it as a full member, President Alberto Fernandez said on Friday at the group’s 14th summit.

“Argentina wants to join this space and offer its contributions as a member of it,” Fernandez said via video link.

The BRICS nations, comprising Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa, account for over 40 percent of the global population and nearly a quarter of the world’s gross domestic product.

For what it’s worth.
