«Gratuitous Democracy» or «Banking Concentration Camp»

The news I’m talking about was reported by media in May. Not a big thing at first glance, certainly not a thing to hit radar screen. But the devil is in the details. Some interesting events took place in Scandinavia. The Danish government proposed exempting certain shops from the obligation to accept cash payments in a move seen as pushing the country a step closer to a «cash-free» economy. Businesses such as clothing retailers, gas stations and restaurants will no longer be required to accept cash next year, the government of Denmark said on May 6. The move comes as part of a pre-election package of economic growth measures aimed at reducing costs and increasing productivity for businesses. Many stores in Sweden do not accept cash but only debit or credit cards. Now a buyer with full pockets of cash will leave a Swedish and Danish shop empty handed...

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?..

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.

Currency Swaps in the Modern World. The Birth of the Global Currency Cartel (II)

Before 2011, unlimited swaps between central banks were open for a period of seven days. In the autumn of 2011, however, the US FRS, the European Central Bank (ECB), the Bank of Japan, the Bank of England, the Bank of Switzerland and the Bank of Canada (the ‘big six’) agreed to coordinate actions to ensure the liquidity of the global financial system... Currency wars are not going anywhere; they are just ceasing to exist within the currency pool of the ‘big six’, while new currency wars between the ‘big six’ and the rest of the world are inevitable. The success of BRICS and other countries on the periphery of global capitalism in building a fair global financial order will, to a large extent, depend on the understanding that the West has already been consolidated and has distanced itself from the rest of the world...

Gold: Back to Money World (I)

Many statesmen do understand that the days, or perhaps, years, of the dollar based world financial system existence are counted. Once all national monetary systems are interconnected with the US currency, the time is ripe to prepare for future changes. For instance, different schemes of internal money circulation, based on gold standard, are being studied. In recent years, we constantly hear about the plans to establish a gold dinar (Muslim states), gold yuan (China), and gold frank (Switzerland). Some states leaders start to talk about returning gold into internal circulation. For instance, the idea has been supported in Sweden, Norway, South Africa, South Korea, Iran, Taiwan, Zimbabwe and some Latin American countries... In the USA the «monetary sovereignty parades» movement is in full swing at the states level. The state of Utah is the leader. In 2011 it adopted and enforced the law to legalize gold and silver coins as money...

What is behind the information attacks on the FED?

Every year the financial world becomes more and more turbulent. There are sharp fluctuations in the stock market index, highly volatile exchange rates, massive bank failures, sudden cross-border movements of "hot" money in the tens and hundreds of billions of dollars, and generally increased instability in the global financial system. Information attacks play a huge role in maintaining the global financial system in this state, by throwing breaking news at the information space, often of a shocking nature...

US Economy Sustained by Export of Dollars and Wars

For those who feel that 13 is an unlucky number, the belief was vindicated on September 13, considering that a new liquidity injection – a massive infusion of freshly printed and essentially worthless money into the global economy – was announced in the US on the day... The biggest problem is that, as history shows with utmost clarity, wars are the only type of outcome of global crises stemming from the very nature of capitalism. Therefore, if the policy of quantitative easing continues untamed, a new war is only a question of when and where...

The Empire and the Financial Systems: About the Eurasian Union’s Strategic Goal

After the dismemberment of the USSR and the end of Cold War political multipolarity took shape on the one hand, while financial systems displayed a trend to shaping a unipolar pattern on the other. There is a contradiction between many states as power centers and actually the only still existing center of global emission – the US Federal Reserve System... The appearance of the Customs Union of Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan and prospects for its transformation into the Eurasian Union make the creation of independent emission center an issue on the agenda because the goal is the integration of economic and financial systems...

NATO Winds Up Emergency Meeting on Plans to Bolster Turkey’s Security

Amid rising tensions following the air strikes launched by Ankara against Kurdish fighters as well as the Islamic State (IS), and warnings of a civil war breaking out in Turkey, an emergency NATO’s Council meeting took place on July 28 in Brussels under Article 4 of the alliance’s founding treaty to gauge the threat the Islamic State extremist group poses to Turkey, and the actions Turkish authorities are taking in response...
