America is on a Banking Delayed-action Mine

Since 2009, it has been compulsory for all major US banks to pass an exam called a stress test. The test checks the banks’ ability to withstand sudden changes in economic and financial conditions. Put simply, it assesses the banks’ ability to survive should America experience a financial crisis similar to the one in 2007-2009. In all the years of testing, the majority of US banks have received a rating of ‘satisfactory’, and even then with a stretch of the imagination. Some banks have had to retake the exam... The results of the stress testing shows that America is living on a delayed-action mine called the US banking system, and sooner or later this mine is going to explode...

Banks Rule the World, but Who Rules the Banks? (II)

...Here we can recall a study by specialists from the Zurich Institute of Technology in Switzerland, the aim of which was to reveal the controlling core of the global economic and financial system. In 2011, the Swiss specialists calculated that there were 1,128 companies and banks at the core of global finance at the beginning of the financial crisis (2007). An even denser core of 147 companies was revealed within this conglomerate. The authors of the study estimated that this smaller core controlled 40 per cent of all corporate assets in the world...

Banks Rule the World, but Who Rules the Banks? (I)

These days, it is already a truism that the hegemony of the US is based on the Federal Reserve System’s (FRS) printing press... During the 2007-2009 global financial crisis, the FRS quietly gave out more than $16 trillion worth of credit (virtually interest free) to various banks. The owners of the money gave out the credit to themselves, that is to the main shareholder banks of the Federal Reserve... While the makeup of the Federal Reserve’s main shareholders is more or less clear, however, the same cannot be said of the shareholders of those banks who essentially own the FRS’ printing press. Who exactly are the shareholders of the Federal Reserve’s shareholders?..

Washington versus Beijing: Curbing the Yuan

One of the monetary and financial tensions between China and the US is the possibility of the yuan becoming a reserve currency... Every five years, the IMF carries out a review of the reserve currency basket. The next review is due at the end of 2015. Experts believe that the Chinese currency meets all the requirements of a reserve currency... According to some reports, a number of countries (most notably Germany and Australia) might support China during the currency basket review in December 2015... Washington’s vote against the yuan could put paid to the International Monetary Fund once and for all, and this would lead to a radical restructuring of the global financial order that would not be to the benefit of Washington and the US dollar...

Donors Conference on Ukraine – Stretching Out Hand for Miserable Pittance

The Europe-Ukraine summit was a frustration for the Kiev’s regime. The donors’ conference that followed on April 28 ended up in total failure. Suffice it to say that the very word “donors” lost any meaning...Those who gathered at the meeting called it a conference on Ukraine’s reforms, the changes to be supported in words with no financial obligations to follow... No serious creditors appeared. The Ukrainian government had assured that China, India and Saudi Arabia were willing to invest. But they ignored the event. True, Beijing really had said before that it set eyes on big investment opportunities in Ukraine but now it reacts to the recently adopted law on “decommunisation”...

Ukraine: War and Crisis to Enrich Tycoons

In February 2014 a coup took place in Ukraine to serve the interests of big geopolitical players and tycoons, but not grassroots. The first ones wanted to start an offensive against Russia, the second ones wanted to take advantage of instability and promote their business interests... The war unleashed by the government in the eastern part of Ukraine resulted in death and impoverishment of common people. At the same time it opened great prospects for personal enrichment of government, those who are close to it and tycoons. The higher is position, the more profit a person makes.

Anti-Russia Economic Sanctions Prove Western Banking System to Be Nothing but House of Cards

...According to the last year’s research done by the International Monetary Fund, only 30% out of 300 European banks have the structure and reserves to guarantee profit for a long time compared to 80% in the United States. The European banking system is on its last legs. As Paul Craig Roberts says – it may be brought down as a house of cards. It’s enough for Russian to introduce a moratorium on debt payments. If Greece joins in – the collapse is inevitable... If the European system collapses, the banks of the United States will be next...

Why Alexis Tsipras is not Popular in EU

No matter how hard the European political beau monde tried to prevent it, Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras did visit Moscow. Neither Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades, nor Hungarian leader Victor Urban, who have also recently met Russian President Vladimir Putin, had received so many warnings and admonitions as the Greek PM...

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...

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.
