After the collapse of the gold standard in 1971, the US entered into agreements with Saudi Arabia and other oil-producing nations where they agreed to price and sell their oil exclusively in US dollars which was nicknamed Petrodollars. In return, the United States ...

The US-China Trade War: Who Dominates Global Trade?
