The VIX

The VIX index is referred to as the fear-index. In the crash of '07, it barely registered a blip. It is steadily rising now.

Venezuela just entered the currency wars in a big way.
Venezuela Launches First Nuke In Currency Wars, Devalues Currency By 46%
The Currency war will eventually destroy the dollar because America has abused it's privilege as printer of the reserve currency.
http://www.24hgold.com/english/news-...Willie+CB&mk=1

This excerpt is from an EXCELLENT article on the second amendment;
"Federal Reserve System and the European Central Bank − are shaking themselves to pieces, as all such Ponzi schemes eventually must. As a result, "the paper-money oligarchy" will now try to salvage the basic system by elevating it to a global level with some sort of world central bank"

The Anglo-America military empire is knocking heads with the Chinese trading empire. Whoever has the lowest overhead costs will prevail.

Currency war

A grim Ministry of Finance (MOF) report circulating in the Kremlin today warns that Venezuela’s “nuclear option” crashing of its currency yesterday is a “clear signal” that the Western banking systems “house of cards”, erected in the aftermath of the 2007-2008 Global Economic Crisis, is in “total collapse” with the expected final outcome to be an “apocalyptic” crash of the US economy no later than April.
According to this MOF report, and what US financial experts described as “what lobbing a nuclear bomb into a currency war knife fight looks like”, Venezuela devalued its currency by an astounding 46% in the latest round of what is being described as the worst currency war our world has seen since the 1930’s, and which plunged the globe into total warfare."

The U.S. dollar is the world reserve currency. If it crashes, many other currencies will crash. The people who hold U.S. treasury notes will NOT be happy about U.S. GOV insolvency.
There is lots of speculation about when this will happen. Some feel that it will happen relatively soon.

Bankers through history

MonsieurM, Both Russia and China have huge gold mining operations. Both are buying ore concentrates around the world. UAE has 3 big gold refineries in Dubai that are buying ore concentrates. The LBMA and COMEX are so crooked that everyone is bypassing them. They quietly mine domestically and they buy ore. This tends to hold down the daily "fix" from London.
This has also starved LBMA and COMEX for physical metal.
Russia May Become No. 3 Gold Miner by 2015 - Ed Steer's Gold & Silver Daily

The Western powers are working overtime to hold down the price of gold so that investors won't see any alternatives to PAPER. This artificially low price has made it much easier for those who want to stock up on physical metal.
The more "they" hold down the price of gold,,,, the faster the bullion vaults in the West empty.

This article has a bit of history on the actions of bankers.
"This is exactly what happened during the Great Depression. The bankers created the crisis by abruptly ceasing to lend money, then calling in existing loans and seizing the REAL assets of the country. They have done this over and over throughout American and world history."
New Deal for Illuminati Banksters « LEFT HOOK by Dean Henderson

The bankers are non-productive. They print funny-money and then manipulate the situation until they can trade their funny money for real assets. Over and over.
The thieving bankers believe their own BS. Gold is a "barbaric relic". I took a 1 0z. gold coin to the bank a while ago. they looked at it like it was a 5 legged lizard. NOBODY trusts a thief. When only tangibles like gold will buy trust, the bankers won't have anything.
The people of India hold 18,000 tons of gold. The GOV has only 643 tons.
GOV and the bankers are working very hard to try to get the Indians to put their gold in the banks. Not bloody likely.

payroll and GOV employees

Many decades ago, a guy named Hegel came up with the idea that GOV should control everything and that everyone should work for GOV. His idea was for GOV to increase taxes and then proportionately increase the percentage of people who it employs. GOV would then have total control.
His idea is called the Hegelian Dilectric.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------In 1945, America went to war with Japan and won. America rebuilt Japan and the Japanese worked very hard making stuff for America and the R.O.W.
We sent dollars to japan for all our toys and they,,,,, sent them right back in the form of treasury bond purchases. GOV got all the money back and used it to pay Employees, Contractors, vendors and retirees. We spent the money twice.

After the war, America had the world reserve currency that was backed by gold. We printed like crazy and lost much of our gold because of the Bretton Woods agreement that demanded that our currency be gold convertible.
We got rid of gold convertibility. We overprinted and we were going down fast. We printed to pay Employees, Contractors, vendors and retirees.

Kissinger got the Saudis to sell oil only in dollars and the dollar got a new lease on life. Everybody had to have dollars to buy oil. This introduced the world to the petrodollar. Every country that even thought about selling oil in non-dollars got invaded.
Everybody sent their dollars to OPEC and OPEC sent them back to America in the form of Treasury bond purchases. We spent our dollars twice and also everybody else's dollars. GOV used these dollars to pay Employees, Contractors, vendors and retirees.

We raised our standard of living way up.
Our GDP is reckoned at about $ 14.7 trillion. When GOV prints money, that amount is added to GDP. When GOV spends money, that amount is also added to GDP. Yes, double counted again. Every dime that is payed to Employees, Contractors, vendors and retirees is counted as GDP.

The gold that is held by GOV is counted as an asset. GOV also leases out it's (your's and mine) gold bullion to get a bit of earning. It still counts all of it's gold as an asset. The gold that is on lease is also counted. Double counting.

GOV currently spends about 30--40% of the GDP. Hard to tell when it is counted twice. The finance industry accounts for a large part of GDP even though they don't produce anything.., except for more paper.
All this double-counted paper wealth has allowed GOV to work towards Hegel's dream. 53% of Americans rely on a check from GOV.

GOV's current debt including unfunded liabilities is reckoned at $ 212 trillion.
All that double counting has allowed GOV to build up a very impressive debt.
BUT, since GDP is far lower in reality than in the current mirage, it's going to be that much harder to continue to pay Employees, Contractors, vendors and retirees.
You can tell that GOV is desperate when they talk about making a $ trillion coin.
Obummer has made it very clear that everyone has to pay their fair share. What he means to say is that he's going to steal the pension funds.
The GDP is a mirage but, the debt is very real.

GOV planned fro the banks to comply with the new Basel III requirements. This would force the banks to hold an extra $7--$11 trillion in high grade capital. This capital would need to be either gold or U.S. treasuries.
Banks would be forced to buy tons of GOV paper. Basel III is being delayed because banks are to broke to come up with $ 7---$11 trillion.

GOV is on very shakey ground. It borrowed and printed currency to pay EVERYBODY. What happens when it can no longer pay all those Employees, Contractors, vendors and retirees?

H. G. Wells and efficiency

H. G. Wells;
"The Work, Wealth and Happiness of Mankind
(Garden City: Doubleday, Doran & Comapny, 1931)

The poor are not a class, but a miscellany with scarcely anything in common but deficient purchasing power. . . . This second sort of poor -- the poor of economic fluctuations -- is being deprived of purchasing power not as individuals but as units in a group. There is no selection at all among them. . . . And very plainly one cause -- though not the only cause -- is that production is being run primarily for the profit of entrepreneurs and their financiers, and not for the good of the mediocre mass. ... Every economy in production which diminishes the amount of work needed generally diminishes in the same proportion the amount of wages paid relative to total output. . . . In the end, economy of production that leads to restricted employment must be bad for industry itself, because in the case of anything but a commodity de luxe it means producing more of a community less able to buy. We are faced indeed with the spectacle of industry, through sheer progressive efficiency, producing more and more, and killing the demand for its product as it does so. That seems indeed to be the essential fact of current economic troubles. There is too much wheat, steel, coal, copper, rubber, oil in the world, too many motorcars, too many gramophones, sewing-machines, and radios, and there is a gathering multitude of people, not defectives, not intrinsically inferior people, but people at quite a chance disadvantage, who canot buy this accumulation of unsold commodities."

"And we have to remember that if there is anything whatever to be said for in defense of armaments, it is that they distribute a very large amount of purchasing power to skilled workers and trained and fit men who might otherwise stand out of employment. A sudden world-wide disarmament, unless it was accompanied by . . . vigorous reëquipment of civil life, might enormously increase the world's economic difficulties."

Imagine what would happen if we stopped ALL the wars, including the war on terror and the war on drugs, etc, etc. Imagine what would happen if we got rid of boondoggles like the dept. of energy. Imagine if we shut down the armaments business. Imagine if we got rid on the many millions in civil service who do nothing but shuffle papers back and forth to each other.
The country would have the same productive capacity but, nowhere to direct it// no way to employ the masses who were redundant.

Addison Wiggin

U.S. GOV is printing and borrowing like crazy to give everyone a job,,, or at least an income. GOV is trying to maintain their (our) standard of living far in excess of our (aggregate) productivity. With 90 million people of working age NOT in the labor force, aggregate productivity is going down. No matter how hard you work, there are still way too many not working.

Addison Wiggin has predicted this stuff way ahead of time. His latest info is a detailed summation of what to expect in the future as GOV tries to support everybody at an unsupportable level.
</title> <link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" href="http://agorafinancial.com/reports/globalfiles/css/reset.css"> <link type="text/css" rel="stylesheet" href="awn_bubble.css"> <link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="http://agorafinancial.com/r

We are in the middle of a paradigm shift that has NO solution. America has the productivity to take care of everyone. America does NOT have the ability to give everyone a job. Suppose that GOV abolished all the make-work jobs,,,, just let them die.
Encourage the productive sector. Let GOV wither away. Send a stipend to all the rest. Mandate "Norplant" for non-working women and couples.
It could be done on paper.
The problem is human nature. Most men can NOT adjust to a useless, non-productive life. Most would vegetate and fall into alcohol and drug use.
That is the case on the Eskimo and Indian reservations.

MonsieurM, the collective has had centuries to perfect techniques at keeping productive people bound to them.
You may take the RED pill but, you still have to eat. You may ride off into the sunset with the hot babe but, you still have to get up in the morning and pay bills. The collective always has a numbers advantage over you.
Waco was meant to serve as an "object lesson".

GB, bankers and wars

As has already been mentioned, England always seems to be causing wars somewhere. It is actually British bankers.

"Once again, Germany's industrial output became a threat to Great Britain.

"Should Germany merchandise (do business) again in the next 50 years we have led this war (WW1) in vain." - Winston Churchill in The Times (1919)

"We will force this war upon Hitler, if he wants it or not." - Winston Churchill (1936 broadcast)

"Germany becomes too powerful. We have to crush it." - Winston Churchill (November 1936 speaking to US - General Robert E. Wood)

"This war is an English war and its goal is the destruction of Germany." - Winston Churchill (- Autumn 1939 broadcast)

""The war wasn't only about abolishing fascism, but to conquer sales markets. We could have, if we had intended so, prevented this war from breaking out without doing one shot, but we didn't want to."- Winston Churchill to Truman (Fultun, USA March 1946)

"Germany's unforgivable crime before WW2 was its attempt to loosen its economy out of the world trade system and to build up an independent exchange system from which the world-finance couldn't profit anymore. ...We butchered the wrong pig." -Winston Churchill (The Second World War - Bern, 1960) "
ALL WARS ARE BANKERS' WARS! | WHAT REALLY HAPPENED

Once again, we see Germany surging ahead and Britain falling behind.
In 2010, Germany finally paid off it's war debt from WW I.
Mario Draghi is trying to hitch up all of Europe's debts to German productivity. Everybody wants to avoid war but, they also want to fleece Germany.

European dreams

"In a globalist, technocratic society, civil society arises as a kind of negotiation between the demands of the state and the desires of its citizens.

But in reality this is an entirely unequal discussion, as the state intends to impose its demands by force, while citizens can only utilize protest and civil disobedience."
The State claims that ONLY the State has a legitimate right to use force to obtain compliance. Mao said that all GOV authority comes from the barrel of a gun.

Here's a chart. You can check on your country.
http://www.zerohedge.com/sites/defau...20to%20GDP.jpg
You can see that the bankers in GB have a serious problem.
Hollande in France seems to be making things worse.
Mish's Global Economic Trend Analysis: France Sinks Further Into Gutter; PMI Accelerates to 4-Year Low; "Core" of Europe Now Consists of Germany Only

GEAB still claims that May-June will be crunch time. They also claim that the U.S. / dollar are in far worse condition than Europe.
GEAB N°72 is available! Global systemic crisis - Second half of 2013: The reality or the anticipation of the Dollar collapse obliges the world to reorganize on new fundamentals

They make an interesting claim that the States will cut loose the banks like Iceland did. I find that very hard to believe.

freedom and decentralization

Dave Michael Rogers has written a book, Lockridge;
https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/170236
In the story, there are various economic interests trying to stop the advancement of "free energy"
Economic interests are only the start of the opposition to Free energy.

The PTB have been working to control the world for centuries. It was too fragmented for most of man's history. Man aligned along the lines of clans or groups a bit bigger.
WIKI; "Most theories see the nation state as a 19th-century European phenomenon"
The PTB have always wanted complete control. Slavery is inefficient. Wage -slavery works much better. The rise of the nation state was effected to consolidate and control.
As man moved away from the agrarian method of survival, it become easier to control large groups. He still had to eat and food distribution was easy to control. England used rotating famines to maintain the population of India at 220 million for about 100 years.

As man relied more and more on energy, that became the new leverage point. Energy is the master resource. Almost all other aspects of life can be controlled if you control energy.
The nation state is an inefficient control mechanism. The larger it gets, the more inefficient it is. The U.S.S.R. stands as a good example. That doesn't stop the control freaks from continually trying to grow the STATE even bigger.
The State continually bombards us with threats, both real and imagined to try to hold the STATE together. We're kept constantly inundated with fear.

GOV has even admitted that peace would be a disaster.
http://www.thelightgate.com/IRON%20M...NG%20PAPER.pdf

Truth is, it would be a disaster ONLY for the state. Man works most efficiently in groups of about 150.
The state works hard to maintain central control of as many things as possible. Smart meters that can be turned off remotely.... etc.

The State would be happiest if IT'S wage slaves didn't have any other choice but to produce for the collective. In truth, the state has outlived it's historical (semi) usefulness.
With the advent of mechanization and birth control, there is plenty to go around in the developed countries.

Jeffery Berwick has written that the STATE is collapsing and on it's way out.
Activist Post: The War Is Over ... And We Won
It's not just ZPE that threatens to give us energy freedom. There are other processes that promise cheap energy.
The Six Biggest JACKPOT EVENTS

Even manufacturing is ready to take off on a new revolution.

The changes are coming so fast that the PTB will be playing a global game of whack-a-mole. I do hope that they lose.

Willie, FOFOA and Smith

The first writers who predicted the economic crash back in '03 and '04 were referred to as doomsdayers. By about '07, they started to look prophetic rather than pessimistic. I started reading them in '05. By about '08, the events with Lehman Bros, AIG and Bear Stearns made the pessimists look optimistic in retrospect.
While the gold bugs had a vested interest in promoting gold and selling doom, that didn't mean that they were wrong. Some of the writers were pushing precious metals but, not actually selling them.
Jim Willie started writing his newsletter many years ago. He was probably the most strident doomsayer. He made the common mistake of trying to do "timing".

He caught a lot of flak when his predictions didn't true on time. The majority of his predictions eventually came true though. Much of his writing centered on the absolute CORRUPTION. His sources fed him the best "dirt".
Here is an article laying out his general predictions.
Jim Willie: Gritty Questions on the Historic Collapse | SilverDoctors.com

Another writer who is fascinating is FOFOA. He carries on in the tradition of FOA ( Friend of Another) and Another himself. His specialty is digging into the details and behind-the-scenes dealings. You would have to do a LOT of background reading to follow some of his stuff. It makes for fascinating reading.
FOFOA

Charles Hugh Smith does very good writing. Here is an article with great graphs that shows the unstoppable shrinking of the economy regardless of what GOV tries to do.
charles hugh smith-Why Central States/Banks Inflate Asset Bubbles, and Why They Implode

Lastly, here is a vid to lighten things up.

Currency swaps and currency wars

Western Europe is crashing dramatically and horribly. Italy and Spain are basket cases. In their dreams, they all expect Germany to come to the rescue and pay to maintain their comfy lifestyle even after they lost their jobs to China, et al.
Germany doesn't want to be a mule to anybody. Reportedly, they are going to align with China and Russia. We see this elsewhere. Old friends are deserting each other in the name of survival.
China, et al are doing currency swaps with several countries that will settle trade without the banks. The very surprising fact is that even Great Britain is doing a currency swap with China.

"The list of nations with such swap deals include Brazil, Australia, Russia, Japan, South Korea, Belarus, Malaysia, and Indonesia. Add England to the long and growing list of nations making bilateral currency agreements with China, which should instill fear in New York."

So, much as London may love New York, they will cut them loose to survive.
What does that imply for global GOV? The East is working to destroy the dollar because they have been screwed for decades.
The various governments might give lip-service to global GOV. But, given the choice between global GOV with domestic civil war and splitting the union, they will choose to go AWAY from the dollar,,,, EU,,IMF,,, WTO,,, BIS, etc.

"the USDollar, the big Western banks, the SWIFT codes, and the FOREX are all rendered suddenly obsolete."
BTW, the FOREX trades between $3--7 trillion every day.
Jim Willie: Gritty Questions on the Historic Collapse | SilverDoctors.com

This is an excellent article on the currency wars.
Gordon T Long : Global Macro Economic Research

When all that currency printing was working it's magic at lifting most economies, everybody in the developed world was more-or-less friendly.
As it all crashes down, friends become enemies.
TRUST DISAPPEARS. This is important to remember.
Without trust, everybody demands tangibles. The best tangible is gold IF, you first have food.

Oil and LENR

All of us are aware of what it would mean to carbon energy if ZPE or LENR went to market. This is an excellent article showing that the big investors are pulling OUT of oil.
Why Are the Big Financial Institutions Selling Oil BIG?
Some of the most important info is in the comments section. There are claims that oil companies are selling off their oil fields and refineries. There are also claims that nuke projects are being canceled.
The article makes the claim that BIG money is pulling out because LENR can't be stopped.

The LENR (Low Energy Nuclear Reaction) is a more technical term for this so-called Cold Fusion.

These effects are observed at conventional temperatures (60° C-1500° C), which suggest a nuclear origin, and in any case much more energy than chemistry (50 to 1000 times more than chemicals). However it does not look like the fusion of stars, or the fission in nuclear reactors. There is almost no radioactivity, no radioactive waste, no stellar temperature ...
The word cold fusion seems there an abuse, but we are not sure really.

cold fusion

Here is Gary Taubes to ASSURE you that cold fusion is impossible;
The Daily Bell - Gary Taubes on Cold Fusion, Good Nutrition and What Makes Bad and Good Science
Here, we see that M.I.T. is offering their class on cold fusion for the second year.
2013 starts right with Cold Fusion 101 at MIT for second year | COLD FUSION NOW!
Most of you know that M.I.T stole the work of Paul Pantone and patented a device that is a plasma reformer.

Trust and money

As EVERYONE knows, politicians are , for the most part, liars and thieves. They become politicians because they have no honest skills to offer in the job market.
These same people, we put in charge of OUR treasury. Power corrupts,,,, no big surprise.
They use laws and paper promises to steal from our productivity,,, nothing new.
We all crash,,, again, nothing new.
The internet has provided an information storehouse that is immensely more accurate than the PTB controlled books that were our previous reference on the economy and economic crimes. The "search" function for our enormous data base has changed impossible tasks to simple tasks.
As WE become far more aware of our enslavement, it becomes much harder to perpetuate.

This is also very true of the investor class. It is so much harder to fool the investors. Economic propaganda just doesn't fly like it used to.
This is a long article from Jim Willie on the total disintegration of the banking industry.
Jim Willie: Raging Gold Bull & Disputed Propaganda | SilverDoctors.com

When trust leaves the scene, there is NO credit and barter is the rule of the day. The universal standard for barter valuation is gold.
Reportedly, there is a standard "Gold Trade Note" that will circulate before very long.
Gold Trade Note to replace dollar in international trade and settlements - National Finance Examiner | Examiner.com

Central banks are printing currency with wild abandon. They print new "money" to rescue debt that can no longer be serviced by the original debtor.
The debt gradually shifts it's way up the ladder until it resides on the balance sheet of the central bank. The CB is the only entity that can print free money to buy up bad loans.
"Central Banks Cannot Create Wealth, Only Liquidity"

The central banks drive down interest rates so that debt can be serviced at a lower rate. Driving down interest rates wipes out economic activity and erases the productivity that is necessary to service the debt.
While the debt can now be serviced at a lower rate, the economic activity is so reduced that it is even more difficult to generate the cash to service the debt.
The production cycle has been wiped out by the diversion of all money to service the debt load.

alternative to bank stimulus

There is a very interesting article from Zero Hedge.
Slow Money - Big Money | Zero Hedge
I'll let you read it rather than printing excerpts.
I do want to print a long excerpt from the comments , though.

"The size of the black hole is known. Instead of giving money to banks, give it to taxpayers. Regardless of whether they save or spend, the money ends up as someone's deposit, thereby boosting reserves the same as if it were given straight to banks. The money supply expands, but this way velocity does not collapse. Banks then have a strong incentive to compete for reserves (deposits) and have to lift their game to cover the fact that toxic **** has been left on their books. The weakest will collapse without it being a crisis because there is enough cash in the system.

In conjunction with this, raise interest rates sharply to push people to pay down debt and save. This dampens an inflationary effect of handing out money and it rewards the prudent while punishing those who gambled and ran up a lot of debt. Raise rates high enough and the rate of credit being extinguished can cancel the QE rate meaning that there is a qualitative shift (improving) rather than a quantitative one.

One way to distribute money widely is to push it by a fat pipe to Treasury and let a huge government system disperse it, as is being done now, to an extent. This sucks because governments are notoriously bad at allocation. Instead, to make the QE process fair, hand out money in proportion to the amount of tax paid by the taxpayer in the past. This rewards those with a proven track record of earnings and honesty and gives nothing to loafers and cheats. Again, the subsequent spending will produce a qualitative shift as honest earners are more likely to spend productively than cheating wasters.

Of course, this leaves a big hole in Fed/Treasury, but no bigger than the one that currently exists thanks to QE. The difference is that done this way, the real economy has some chance of actually recovering so that the hole can eventually be filled without foreign creditors ****ting themselves.

Fairest way would be to require banks to pay 100% of profits (after expenses) into filling that hole until it's done. De-financialize by taxing the financial sector relatively harder than the real economy. If banks won't comply because they can't or won't then either liquidate or nationalize the zombies."

Cyprus

Well, Cyprus is in the news. Russian oligarchs stash a LOT of money there. The Cypriot banks used Russian money to buy Greek bonds. That didn't work out so well. The Germans said that they would NOT bail out a bunch of Russian billionaires. The threat of contagion made them change their minds.
The Economist predicted that there would be bank runs in the southern countries.

NONE of the Cypriot parliament voted to approve the theft. At the moment, this is being celebrated as a victory for the KGB and Putin.
My Blog

Now, there is speculation that Cypriot banks can never reopen. The Russians can easily shift their money to other bank havens. Cyprus has instituted capital controls to stop this. The very latest plan calls for an even bigger bite out of wealthy depositors.

This will eventually result in a few legislators being found in dumpsters.

IMF, BIS + world bank

Several months ago, Dominique Strauss Kahn was very publicly arrested on plane in New York. He was to be the head of the IMF. The arrest ended his career.
A few days ago, the current head of the IMF had her apartment raided and searched for evidence of corruption and embezzlement. Christine Lagarde

IMF Founders: Harry Dexter White and John Maynard Keynes
The IMF is an agency that specializes in stealing big time from developing countries. America holds 18.5 % of voting rights.

John Maynard Keynes, "After WWII however, when disbanding the BIS was actually mandated by Congress, he argued against the dissolution pending the creation of the IMF and World Bank."

Harry Dexter White was also considered to be a brilliant economist, and was appointed in as 1942 assistant to Henry Morgenthau, Secretary of the Treasury. He remained Morgenthau’s most trusted assistant throughout his term, and argued verbosely against the Bank for International Settlements.

As you can see, the IMF is an enemy of the Bank for international Settlements. There are other problems;
Vocal critics of the IMF at that time included George P. Schultz (member of the Trilateral Commission), William E. Simon (Secretary of the Treasury under Nixon and Ford) and Walter B. Wriston (former chairman of Citigroup/Citibank and member of the Council on Foreign Relations). They jointly wrote Abolish the IMF
The IMF is ineffective, unnecessary, and obsolete. We do not need another IMF, as Mr. (George) Soros
The enemies of the IMF include the Trilateral Commission, the Bank for International Settlements and the Council on Foreign Relations.
QUITE an impressive list of enemies.

The International Monetary Fund

In a general sense, the IMF works diligently to steal as much as possible from as many countries as possible. They run up debts and then steal all the public productive assets. It's called privatization.
(1/14/2004) Ten Years Of Privatization Made Argentina's Crisis Worse

The general procedure for the IMF is to loan too much money to countries with corrupt leaders. When the default comes, they demand infrastructure.
TalkingStickTV - John Perkins - Confessions of an Economic Hit Man - Part I - YouTube
In a general sense, there is a war between the BIS and sound money and the IMF inflationists.

Italy now

Cyprus in in the headlines now but, Italy will have it's turn. Couple of quotes;
"the economy was caught in a "vicious circle" where banks are too frightened to lend, driving more companies over the edge. A thousand are going bankrupt every day."
"The research group CGIA di Mestre said half of small companies cannot pay their staff on time."
Read more at Mish's Global Economic Trend Analysis: German Economist Proposes "One Time" Cyprus-Like 15% Wealth Tax on Italians; Italy Proposes Easing Stability Pact; Is Italy the Next Cyprus?
The solution is simple
""So it would make sense, in Italy for a one-time property tax levy," suggested the Bank economist. "A tax rate of 15 percent on financial assets would probably be enough"
The end result will probably be a 15% tax on ALL assets.

The situation in Europe is VERY simple. The banks and investors made loans to entities who were/are high risk believing that they were low risk. The borrower has no responsibility to proved an assessment of risk. The depositors and savers represent prudent people. The plan is to burn the prudent people to pay off the gamblers.

Italy has been unable to form a government after the latest election. Grillo is pushing for a complete repudiation of austerity and a break from the EU.
Should the Eurocrats try to impose a 15% asset tax, Grillo will find it easier to break away from Brussels.
Infidel753: The rebellion of Italy

Italy has the 3rd largest bond market in the world. A break from the Eurozone would repay bonds in a very deflated (new) Lira.
The result would be similar to this;

Deflation and velocity

Here are some numbers and facts from the Daily Reckoning.

Firms in the S&P 500 are holding close to a trillion dollars in cash on their collective balance sheets, an increase of 40% from the dark days of 2008.
In fact, banks themselves are swimming in liquidity. The loan-to-deposit ratio of America’s banks is a decades-low 70%. Plus, banks still have nearly $1.5 trillion parked at the central bank in excess reserves.

This cash hoarding is a worldwide phenomenon. Companies in Japan have increased their liquid assets by 75% since 2007 to $2.8 trillion. Canadian firms have $300 billion sitting on their balance sheets, a 25% increase from 2008.

Still the deposits pile up. At the end of 2008, the total amount in loans and leases in America’s banks stood at $7.9 trillion. Four years later that total stood at $7.7 trillion. The total of Commercial and Industrial loans hasn’t grown at all, standing at $1.5 trillion at the end of 2008 and 2012.

Meanwhile deposits at federally insured institutions have grown from $9 trillion at year end 2008 to $10.8 trillion at the end of last year.
The Fed is desperate for businesses to make investments and hire people, whether they result in entrepreneurial errors or not. The stated plan is to lower borrowing costs for businesses so that borrowers will seek and be granted loans to do projects that require increased hiring.

However, the results have been terrible. The headline unemployment rate still hovers near 8%. Three million fewer Americans are employed now than in January 2008. Median household income has dropped 9% since the end of 2007

The velocity of money has fallen from 3.5 to under 1.5 over the last few decades.

America had a lock on manufacturing after WW II. That ended about 1969. Of course, it was a process, not an event. Wages have been stagnant since 1971 when accounting for price inflation.
OK, so, we lost our job and aggregate wages sank.
GOV and bankers believe that if they continue to print currency, people will continue to get rich. Global competition in value-added sectors reduced our national income and resulted in a huge balance-of-trade deficit.
The productive economy is being deflated at the same time that the currency and credit supply is being inflated.
We have reached a saturation point.

The West tried to maintain a high wage-and-price structure even after the wage part of the equation collapsed. Wages went away so GOV pumped in currency to keep the economy inflated.
The currency was pumped into the upper loop. It was guessed that currency pumped into the upper loop (banks) would trickle down to the lower loop. This is a long-held idea that is questionable.
Nick Hanauer - YouTube

The vid points out that all production is for the sake of consumption. Unemployment is close to 23 %
Alternate Unemployment Charts
So, almost 90 million are NOT in the labor force. National income has dropped and the consumer is broke. National income is deflating and money velocity is stalling.
On the other end of the equation, GOV is printing like crazy. GOV is scared stiff by the thought of deflation. In currency deflation, currency becomes more valuable. Bank loans stand at $ 7.7 trillion. With lower velocity and less currency, these loans won't be paid back. The solution from the FED is to buy up the bad loans and have the taxpayer pay them back.

You and your kids.
Doorbell - YouTube
The FED is now buying most treasury bonds AND the bad loans. The FED is also losing the battle to keep interest rates down very low. When the rates rise, it will take most of GOV income to service the debt. This will choke off money to service private debt at the same time.
Bernanke has told obummer that he wants out.

euro funds and Cypress

Britain is in DEEP trouble because the banks have an enormous exposure. BOE is unwilling to print all the necessary trillions. Britain needs an infusion of cash to keep them going. For some strange reason, GB never switched over to the Euro. This crisis is NO surprise. It was predicted when the Eurozone was "implemented". A suspicious person would think that GB stayed out of the common currency to gain advantage at a later date.

The ball in Cyprus is still bouncing. Here is the latest;
"Earlier yesterday it looked as if Cyprus may have to impose a larger levy on deposits, up to 25 per cent."
Now, THAT is a good way to scare away depositors. Lest there be any doubt, Nigel Farage has told Britons to get all their money out of euro denominated banks.
The British GOV is trying not to get caught in a squeeze either.
The British Government has frozen £1.2million in state pension payments due to 12,000 Britons living in Cyprus to prevent it being grabbed in a bailout deal.

Negative interest

The West is under attack by both low-wage competitors AND bankers. And, don't forget automation. The economy can't seem to produce jobs. GOV wants banks to loan money to produce jobs. Never mind that it never works that way with debt-money. The banks don't want to loan money to the people who really need it because they can't pay it back..

BOE has come up with a new solution. Paul Trucker;
"The situation is rather
simple, the banks must loan out to recover the economy,
but they are refusing to do so. The economy is not repairing
from the Global Collapse of Capitalism in 2008 in large part
due to the refusal of banks to loan.
The Bank of England has gone through a good deal
of Quantitative Easing in order to make it easier for the
bank by giving them much more money. To the chagrin of
the economy and the government, the banks have
categorically refused to do so. "

"The announcement of a
possible negative interest rate is their way of saying that the
banks had better start loaning out that money or else it is
going to cost them."

Bankruptcy and default

Italy is in paralysis. They can't form a new GOV. That may bump them up the list of prospective crashers.

Porter Stansbury has been providing a warning to people for quite a while. Since he runs a big investment house, He does his own research. He has a very good track record for accuracy. His latest message is that U.S. GOV will do a surprise devaluation. Almost all countries have done this at one time or another.
America is desperate to inflate away the debt load. The U.S. economy is shrinking at about 5 % a year. This makes it extremely difficult to get adequate price inflation out of all that currency inflation. A currency devaluation makes sense and is the usual procedure.
Stansberry's Investment Advisory

If you are thinking of maybe buying a few solar panels, you should read this paper on the 3 day week.
Three-Day Week - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A currency devaluation is part of a currency war. Venezuela just did one. Most devaluations are done gradually by over printing. America last did an overnight devaluation when it changed the price of gold from $ 20 an ounce to $ 35 an ounce. The current posted price of American GOV gold is $42.33 an ounce. I don't know why.

The general claim is that GOV is more insolvent than the banks.
The two things that would cause a lot of problems are a banking holiday or a GOV default. There is speculation that a virus, Gauss will be used as an excuse to shut down banking and , presumably, steal all the money.

"In the event that Gauss is used as an excuse to shut down the banking industry domestically to purge all computers of the virus, this would be the flashing red warning signal that the covert banking holiday has begun. Since all mega banks have resolution plans filed with the Fed, their insolvency would be superficial.

Once all customer funds were electronically transferred into off-shore accounts, the specialized police forces and hired mercenaries would be stepped forward to protect the technocrats from retaliation for their crimes."

Panic

Jim Rodgers has said on CNBC to get your money out of the bank. Nigel Farage MP has said to get your money out of European banks.
The saying goes, "never start a panic but,,,, if you do, make sure that you are the first one to the exit".
"Get your money out of the banks" Jim Rogers on CNBC 3/28/13 'Looting' of bank accounts has Rogers worried -- Puppet Masters -- Sott.net

Executive order 6102 forbade the hoarding of gold and CURRENCY. You could only hold 5 ounces of gold. 1933.
The banks really don't have very much in assets. If people try to pull it out that has a very negative effect on the bank. Keep in mind that your money at the bank is a loan in most countries. The bank can make you wait to recall your loan. They don't actually have your money. They use it.

Investopedia explains 'Sweep Account'
"In a sweep program, a bank's computers analyze customer use of checkable deposits and "sweeps" funds into money market deposit accounts. "
You loaned your money to the bank so they could go out and gamble with it.

If your money is not in a deposit account, it can disappear very easily.

Payback

Jim Willie has a great track record at predicting economic problems. His latest letter is about the trade unions and financial arrangements that specifically exclude America. Jim has been writing for many years. He wrote that this letter is the most important ever.
America is about 4 % of the world's population We have been throwing our weight around for many years. We claim to be the world's policeman. Under the corrupted influence of the CIA, the FED and a bought-and-paid-for congress, we have become the world's thug.

Our payback is spelled out here.
