The BRI is not another annoying Wall Street Acronym.
It stands for Belt and Road Initiative. And it’s China’s most ambitious plan to recreate their famous “Silk Road.”
Historically, it was the most dominant trading route connecting Asia with Europe and Africa dating back to the Han Dynasty in 206 B.C.
Try to imagine a massive geographic area covering over 65 countries. These countries include two thirds of the world’s population and over one third of the global GDP (Gross Domestic Product).
The economic impact of the BRI is mind-boggling.
It’s establishing China as the major powerhouse of the 21st century.
You need to be paying attention to this.
As an investor, it affects all markets around the world.
Translation: lots of opportunities.
This goes beyond China’s geopolitical strategy for global dominance.
China’s President Xi Jinping sees the BRI being driven by economic, commercial and development factors…all of which are based on building networks of connectivity. (Think of the internet on steroids)
So, what does that mean for you?
From an investment standpoint, plenty.
First, there is nothing you can do to stop China’s progress. They will be the next world’s reserve currency (kicking us out of first place).
But don’t panic.
It’s all part of another economic cycle. (World reserve currencies have a life span of about 80-100 years. We’re near the end of our cycle).
And you should position yourself to profit from it.
As always, you must understand something before you embrace it.
So, be sure to get next month’s newsletter of Simplifying Wall Street in Plain English. We’ll dive into the depths of China’s long-term plan of recreating the most dominant and historic trading route in history.
