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 ...»

The Internationalisation of the Yuan (II)

...The reserve currency issuing countries have balance of payments deficits. It means that a reserve currency is a trap. Back in the early 1960s Belgian-American economist Robert Triffin said there is a fundamental incompatibility between the attainment of US global economic stability and having a single national currency perform the role of the world’s reserve currency... The dollar started to function as a real reserve currency only when the United States foreign trade deficit became stable...

The Latest Heist: US Quietly Snatches the Ukraine’s Gold Reserves

According to reports out of Kiev (see links below), the US has quietly transfers 33 tons of Ukrainian gold out of the country and back to vaults in the US. Presumably, this sovereign wealth transfer would be counted as partial “collateral” for a fresh round of IMF, US FED, and ECB paper debt that is currently being organised for dumping into the Ukraine’s economic black hole.

Sensational News in the World of Finance

Recently the British newspaper The Guardian, and then the Bloomberg news agency, reported sensational news: over the week of March 5 through 12, the reserves of U.S. treasury securities in the depositary of the Federal Reserve System decreased by $104.5 billion... Neither the Federal Reserve nor the U.S. Treasury Department is giving any details on the reduction in U.S. treasury securities reserves. But there are theories. Almost all analysts agree that the withdrawal of securities from the Federal Reserve's depository was made by Russia, but experts differ in their opinions on the subsequent fate of the withdrawn securities...

IMF and Ukraine: Bleak Prospects for Future

It was reported recently that the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and Ukraine planned launching talks to nail down a new aid package. This year Ukraine is to pay off 6 billion dollars. It has asked the IMF for a $15 billion loan. Kiev hoped to receive it as early as April. But the talks have not started so far (a group of IMF experts is to visit Ukraine in early March) and there is no talking about any time frame... There is an impression that the IMF experts are coming to Kiev not for the purpose of making precise the conditions for granting a new loan, but rather to see if the International Monetary Fund could get back the money Ukraine owes to it this year and how quick it could be done. The country is on the verge of default. The situation is critical no matter what criteria are used for assessment. The Ukraine’s economy is burdened by internal and external debts...

What Links the Threat of a U.S. Default with the Destabilization of Ukraine?

At the Munich Security Conference the Ukrainian opposition and the U.S. essentially agreed on a plan to force Viktor Yanukovich to capitulate. Arseniy Yatsenyuk told of this plan of action, which was worked out with the direct participation of Western representatives, after a meeting with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry and EU officials. While the «Euromaidan» is shoring up its tents, showing that it is there for the long haul, the State Department has appointed a time by which the regime change operation in Ukraine is to be finished: March 24. That is how the message which appeared on the official site of the U.S. State Department on January 24 could be interpreted...

Federal Reserve: Mortal Agony on Day of Jubilee

The Federal Reserve Act was enacted December 23, 1913, a hundred years ago the bill was signed into law by President Woodrow Wilson. Since then the Federal Reserve System has become a factor determining the US economy and politics... Many Americans believe that a bunch of international bankers got hold of power as the Federal Reserve System (FRS) came into being. President and Congress became servants of FRS main shareholders... The power of Federal Reserve in the XX century instilled a false feeling of its infinity just like the dollar it issued. These illusions get gradually evaporated as events unfold in the early days of XXI century...

On the «bombshell» dropped by China on 20 November 2013 (II)

...As global experience shows, the full liberalisation of capital transactions in countries on the periphery of global capitalism usually leads to speculators with their hot money, rather than strategic investors, swooping down on the country. Investors like these do not develop the economy, but pick at its assets and destabilise the work of those businesses still clinging to life. The full liberalisation of capital transactions at the end of the 1980s-beginning of the 1990s that took place in a number of ASEAN countries known back then as the «Asian Tigers» resulted in these tigers becoming pitiful kittens. The result of liberalising the movement of capital fully emerged during the financial crisis in Southeast Asia in 1998. It inflicted incalculable damage on the economies of these former tigers...

On the «bombshell» dropped by China on 20 November 2013 (I)

Since 21 November, an article by well-known financial analyst and blogger Michael Snyder under the headline «China announces that it is going to stop stockpiling US dollars» has spread through the media like wildfire. We quote: «China just dropped an absolute bombshell, but it was almost entirely ignored by the mainstream media. The central bank of China has decided that it is ‘no longer in China’s favor to accumulate foreign-exchange reserves’». Michael Snyder’s article predicts that China’s decision will have serious consequences for the United States. According to Snyder, even if this bombshell does not destroy America, it will still cause the country enormous damage. Can it all really be as the American analyst claims?..

The Islamic State – America’s Double-Edged Sword

Serious experts are now in little doubt that the US administration was the ‘midwife’ of the Islamic State (IS). Renowned Israeli analyst and former head of the ultra-secretive intelligence agency Nativ, Jacob Kedmi, says that the US is now trying to use the tactic of setting moderate Islam against radical Islam, which was «successfully employed in Russia». It is not turning out well for the US, however, considering that for the last three years the Americans have acted as allies of the IS in Syria, and before that were allies of al-Qaeda and the Taliban in Afghanistan... The war currently being carried out against the IS by the US Air Force is recognised to be for show and is more reminiscent of an arrangement of red flags, beyond which it is inadvisable to go...
