Media | Gregory Chin on new BRICS development bank and reserve currency fund

Gregory Chin (Political Science) was quoted in a Toronto Star article on the $50 billion (U.S.) development bank established by the leaders of Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa – collectively known as the BRICS nations. The historic accord also created a $100 billion reserve fund which member states can use to support their currencies in the event of a crisis.

“The fact that they showed the political will to do it, that’s a potential game changer,” said Chin.
