FedEx Founder, Chairman Issues Dire Warning About What BRIC Nations Are Plotting | Eastern North Carolina Now

    FedEx Founder and Executive Chairman Fred Smith warned during an interview that the BRIC nations - which primarily consist of Brazil, Russia, India, and China - have set out to dethrone the U.S. dollar as the world's reserve currency, and if that happens, the standard of living that Americans are accustomed to will be gone forever.

    Smith made the warning during an interview with Bret Baier while talking about today's inflation report showing that inflation was worse than projected and that prices are up overall 17.9% since Biden took office.

    "I think the issue is much broader than just the CPI that was announced today," he said. "I mean, we're the wealthiest nation in the world because of all these wonderful inventions since the end of World War II. But we're also prosperous because we lead the world in opening markets for trade and protected those trade flows with the American Military and our alliances. And then third, and probably equally important, we're the reserve currency of the world, the dollar is the medium of exchange and our financial institutions control the movement of money around the world. All three of those things went together."

    "And you had a repudiation of both trade beginning in 2018, when the trade wars began with President Xi and President Trump, and more recently, our government has been borrowing money at an enormous rate, almost $2 trillion last year," he continued. "And the CBO just announced that we'll spend more on interest this year than we'll spend on the Defense Department. These subjects are not even mentioned in our political discourse these days. It's very concerning."

    Smith said during a recent speech that in order to avoid a catastrophic fiscal crisis, political leaders needed to recognize the extreme and unprecedented dangers that are facing the U.S. and that grand comprise would be needed to fix these problems.

    When asked during the interview if he was seeing leaders step up to the plate to address the crisis, he responded: "No, quite the contrary."


    "The political process is really focused on the extremes of both parties," he said. "No one is supporting trade, which made America great, really, since Roosevelt and his Secretary of State Hall, passed the first major trading bill in 1934. And then we led opening the world and restored Germany and Japan, our enemies, to prosperity through trade and the American Alliance system."

    "And then on top of that, our financial capabilities to print money at will is dependent on the dollar remaining the reserve currency," he added. "And the so-called BRICS alliance - Brazil, Russia, India, and China - have set out on a deliberate course to dethrone the dollar. If that happens, and we can't sell our bonds, I can assure you the living standards that we all enjoy today are going to be a thing of the past."
