Central Banks as the Bankrupts of Last Resort

...The ownership capital of the US Federal Reserve in relation to the value on the Federal Reserve’s balance sheet is just 1.3 per cent. And this symbolic capital is not represented by gold or anything else of actual value, but by electronic records. It is clichéd financial black magic. From the point of view of the capital adequacy ratios developed by the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) for ordinary (commercial) banks (Basel II, Basel III), the US Federal Reserve System is completely bankrupt...

Events in Greece Could Follow the Cypriot or Argentine Scenario

...With the debt and financial situation the way it is, Brussels (EU), Frankfurt (ECB) and Washington (IMF) can hardly risk making drastic decisions regarding Greek debt. After all, the response could be a declaration of default on the Greek government’s obligations, which total around €320 billion. It would be more than enough to cause a chain reaction involving the bankruptcies of European banks and companies which, in turn, could bring on government defaults and the collapse of the house of cards known as the European Union...

London Gold Fix Closed – Sign of Drastic Changes the World Financial System Is To Go Through

The closer of London Gold Fix (LGF) on March 20 is big news. The first London gold fixing was performed in 1919; it had a short way to go till its anniversary... For many years LGF was perceived to be an ideal instrument for fixing the gold price on the world market, especially for individual contracts and derivatives (paper gold)... The elimination of LGF is part of big game played by the «money bosses» – the Rotshields and Rockefellers (the both are the leading shareholders of US Federal Reserve System). Gold is what the Rotshields are after, while the Rockefellers rely on the dollar – the world currency the Federal Reserve System issues...

Program of Assistance to Ukraine – IMF and Kiev Join Together in Bluff Effort

US Franklin Resources, an American holding company, is the largest holder of Ukraine’s bonds... Franklin Resources company belongs to «financial vultures» which don’t restructure debts. They normally undermine the accords on restructuring reached with other investors... The Ukraine’s debt restructuring program will not yield the expected $15, 3 billion. It means that Ukraine may not get the next $5 billion tranche and the whole program so much praised and publicized by the International Monetary Fund may become just another example of financial impracticable scheme...

Ukraine and the Rothschild Family

A group of large international investors buy out Ukrainian government’s securities. Franklin Templton is one of them... Franklin Templton has all the makings of a «financial vulture»... According to a recent Bloomberg report, the investment fund acts under US jurisdiction and is controlled by Rothschilds, the family known for its death grip... The Bloomberg’s information is not detailed but it allows to make the following conclusions: first, the default of Ukraine is inevitable and the credit holders are aware of this fact, second, the default will be accompanied by restructuring on tough terms unfavorable for Ukraine...

The Raiding of Ukraine’s Gold

...The falsification of gold reserve statistics began in the 1990s and was designed to conceal illegal gold transactions which involved, among others, the Bank of England and the Federal Reserve Bank of New York. Falsified statistics allow the theft of gold from the reserves of central banks and treasuries and its relocation to the vaults of the largest private funds and banks to be covered up... There is speculation that this is what has been done with Ukraine’s gold reserves...

World Public Debt – Main Destabilizer of Global Economy

Winding up the discussions launched by the articles A Panorama of Global Debt and Global Debt: The Tip and the Bulk of the Iceberg, it’s important to focus on the conclusions offered by the authors of McKinsey consulting company’s report. They say that the world public debt has become the main factor to cause the destabilization of global financial and economic situation. It’s necessary to look for ways to slow down the debt growth, if not reduce it. The first wave of world crisis was mainly provoked by fast growth of financial sector, corporative and household debt. The second wave will probably be caused by the increase of national debts.

The Second Wave of the Global Financial Crisis Is Just around the Corner

...The former head of the FRS, Alan Greenspan, notes that the real sector of the US economy is recovering much more slowly than the financial market. There is an imbalance developing that could result in the emergence of an enormous financial bubble, and US banks and funds as well as investors around the world will take it upon themselves to inflate it. At present, there is much that is reminiscent of the situation on the eve of the 2007-2009 global financial crisis.

Reasons for Hryvnia’s Collapse

By the end of «black Wednesday», Feb. 25, the Ukrainian currency exchange rate went down to 33 hryvnias to the dollar and never bounced back. It also plummeted as low as 50-60 hryvnias at the black market to stay there. The official rate was around 15 hryvnias to the dollar in mid-February... In general, the reason for the currency collapse is the economic crisis transforming into a national disaster. Ukrainian Prime minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk has acknowledged recently that the economy dropped 20 % in 2014... According to the recently published forecasts, the GDP is to fall by 5, 5 % in 2015. The yearly inflation is estimated to be 25-26%. The crisis has also spread to banks...

Global Debt: The Tip and the Bulk of the Iceberg

Despite the chilling nature of the global debt and individual country debt figures cited in the report published by the well-known consulting firm McKinsey in February 2015, for the most part these figures are incomplete and underestimated. The situation is in fact far worse. This is clearly illustrated by the US, whose share of global debt is the largest...

Yemen or Iran: Which One is in US Sights?

...Saying yes to the operation against the Shia movement Ansar Allah (Houthis) Americans risk facing «unexpected consequences» one more time. No doubt the Houthi movement is the only force in Yemen able to counter the Al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula (AQAP) and the Islamic State (IS). The Yemen’s overthrown President Hadi was blamed for his close ties with Sunni radicals connected to AQAP and IS. As soon as the Houthis came to power, the AQAP militants gave an oath of allegiance to the Islamic State and started to fight the Houthis. Once again Obama aims at wrong terrorists...
