  1. What new different proposal is there from America? The Global Family Bank now has the American Federation Dollar [AFD] which is asset-based, not a mere ‘promise to pay,’ backed by a mercenary-U.S.INC. military.
    Please, BRICS+ Alliance, let’s get together for honest trade without 3rd party western Central Banksters!
