CHINA PREPARES FOR FINANCIAL WARFARE
DECEMBER 12, 2013
The US Pentagon recently conducted the first financial war game in the world. This simulation exercise was the culmination of months of preparation.
The exercise simulates a global financial crisis where the reserve status role of the US Dollar comes under assault by other nations. Participants must determine what the US should do to defend. The 2-day exercise seeks to find out what modes of attack opponents will adopt through role-playing, how various geopolitical scenarios may affect international finance and what measures nations can adopt.
This was the game scenario:
1. Russia announces that she will move her gold reserves to Switzerland.
2. Russia conducts bilateral talks with Japan to stop using US Dollar for energy transactions.
3. Russia persuades China to join the arrangement.
