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...

Anglo-American Money Owners Organized World War (II)

The Bank of International Settlements (BIS) played an important role during the Second World War. It was created as an outpost of American interests in Europe and a link between Anglo-American and German businesses...Switzerlandbecame the place where gold seized by Germany in different corners of Europe was transported to for storage. In the March of 1938, when Hitler captured Vienna, part of Austrian gold was transferred to BIS vaults. The same thing happened with the gold of Czech National Bank (48 million USD). As the war started, the flows of gold poured into the Bank of International Settlements. Germany got it from concentration camps and as a result of plundering the wealth of occupied countries...

US External Debt and its Largest Foreign Holders

...It makes sense to replace the currency (especially the dollar) component of international reserves because the era of cheap gold in the world is coming to an end. A sharp increase in the price of gold is anticipated. This is indirectly indicated by events like the end of the London Gold Fix in March 2015. The world is moving over to a new, more liberal system for setting gold prices. In these new conditions, Russia has a big advantage over other countries – it is one of the leading gold-producing countries.

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...

Foreign Hostages Held by the US Federal Reserve

...The end of the London Gold Fix on March 20 and the transition to a more liberal method of setting market quotations for the yellow metal will cause the price of gold to begin to soar. Undervaluing the price of gold, which has been Washington’s sub-rosa policy for decades, has made it possible to artificially maintain the dollar’s prestige and artificially inflate its exchange rate... Currently Germany and several other countries are trying to reclaim their gold from the vault of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, where all the foreign gold stored in the US is amassed. However, the US does not want to part with this gold from overseas...

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...

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...

Dollar Imperialism, 2015 Edition

 “The dollar is our currency, but it’s your problem.” This is what US Treasury Secretary John Connally said to his counterparts in the Rome G-10 meeting in November, 1971, shortly after the Nixon administration ended the dollar’s convertibility into gold and shifted the international monetary system into a global floating exchange rate regime. The world has been suffering from this “problem” ever since the US obtained the “exorbitant privilege” of issuing the world’s reserve and trade currency under the Bretton Woods system after WWII.

Financial Market Manipulation Is The New Trend: Can It Continue?

Governments and economists take their hats off to free markets.  Yet, the markets are rigged, not free. ... No country dependent on foreign capital is sovereign.  A country dependent on foreign capital, especially from enemies seeking to subvert the economy, is subject to destabilizing currency and economic swings.  Russia should self-finance. ...The greatest harm that is being done to the Russian economy is not due to sanctions and the US attack on the ruble.  The greatest harm is being done by Russia’s neoliberal economists. Neoliberal economics is not merely incorrect.  It is an ideology that fosters US economic imperialism. ... If Russia is to survive, Putin must protect Russia from Western economic institutions and Western trained economists.

The Wolves of Wall Street Will Not Feed the American Sheep

On Nov. 12 the Financial Times, reported that regulators in the UK, US, and Switzerland have fined the five biggest international banks a total of $3.2 billion for manipulating foreign-exchange rates... The banks’ currency traders agreed to fix exchange rates on the world market in order to boost their own profits. This was no small-potatoes scam - as much as $5.4 trillion changes hands every day on the Forex market... Steen Jakobsen, chief economist of Saxo Bank, claims that never before has there been such a huge gap between economic reality and perception, but «the world is not ending, it’s getting ready for a new beginning ...»
