‘Death of the Dollar’

December 28, 2014

For more than four years now Michael Maloney has been demonstrating to audiences around the world that every 30-40 years the world has an entirely new global monetary system, that the current monetary system (the U.S. dollar standard) is aging and becoming unstable, and, just like the previous monetary systems, will soon implode.

On June 1st, 2014, at the Cambridge House Investment Conference in Vancouver, Canada, he updated his “Death of the Dollar” presentation and showed how the “Nails in the Coffin of the Dollar Standard” are now coming faster and are more furious than ever before. He believes that there will be a global currency crisis before the end of this decade and that the days of the dollar standard are numbered.

In a second presentation on the same day he makes the most convincing argument yet that there is a massive deflation coming, that there will probably be an overnight devaluation of the dollar and huge overnight revaluation of gold, and, though it will be painful for most, it is the greatest opportunity in history for those who are prepared.

*China To Launch Yuan Swap Trading With Russian Rubles On Monday

(excerpt)

From Bloomberg:

China will allow trading in forwards and swaps between the yuan and three more currencies in a bid to reduce foreign-exchange risks amid increased volatility in emerging markets.
The China Foreign Exchange Trade System will begin such contracts with Malaysia’s ringgit, Russia’s ruble, and the New Zealand dollar from Dec. 29, it said in a statement on its website today. That will extend the yuan’s swaps trading to 11 currencies on the interbank foreign-exchange market.
A plunge in Russia’s ruble this month to a record low sparked a selloff in developing nations’ assets, leading to a surge in currency volatility. The new contracts come amid efforts by China to increase the international use of the yuan, as the world’s second-largest economy promotes it as an alternative to the U.S. dollar for global trade and finance. Malaysia and Russia are China’s eighth and ninth biggest trading partners, according to data compiled by Bloomberg.

“This will provide companies with better hedging tools, and at the same time, make currency trading more efficient,” said Ju Wang, a senior currency strategist at HSBC Holdings Plc in Hong Kong. “China won’t stop yuan globalization or capital-account opening because of the volatility in emerging market currencies.”

*China Steps In as World’s New Bank

(excerpt)

Thanks to China, Christine Lagarde of the International Monetary Fund, Jim Yong Kim of the World Bank and Takehiko Nakao of the Asian Development Bank may no longer have much meaningful work to do.

Beijing’s move to bail out Russia, on top of its recent aid for Venezuela and Argentina, signals the death of the post-war Bretton Woods world. It’s also marks the beginning of the end for America’s linchpin role in the global economy and Japan’s influence in Asia.

The Calm Before The Storm

December 22, 2014

In historical terms these are the final seconds of the 11th hour, and the clock is ticking.

“World War III” is a loaded term (as are many historical references). It assumes that these tragic mass murders that humanity calls war, are isolated events with distinct beginnings and ends. This kind of over simplification obscures the multi-generational chain reactions that lead up to that moment when swords are drawn or missiles fly.

Of course, there is another reason that the public is rarely conscious of these chain reactions. The ruling classes learned long ago that the best way to take a nation to war, is to trick them into it.

Vietnam was an extension of the Cold War, which was an extension of World War II, which was a direct result of the terms imposed on Germany following World War I.

This multifaceted conflict that is unfolding right now between the declining powers of the West and geopolitical and economic upstarts from the East may not end up being labeled as “World War III” in the history books. Perhaps they’ll continue to label each phase with a catchy name, like “Operation Baltic Freedom” or “Operation Siberian Storm”. Whatever.

On the other hand, if someone does something stupid, history books may not make it through the aftermath at all. Of course I would never insinuate that the United States government would ever do anything stupid. It’s not like the country is run by a gaggle of war mongering imbeciles. Well, actually, I suppose that depends on how you define the word “imbecile”.

Draghi’s war on Europeans

Mario Draghi’s Continuing War on Europeans

(excerpt)

None of Draghi’s measures, which in actuality boil down to money printing via bank credit expansion, will accomplish their stated goals. Such polices, to one degree or another, have been tried before and ultimately lead to hyperinflation, the destruction of the currency and depression. This, however, assumes that central bankers’ primary goal is to “fight deflation,” reduce unemployment or promote growth. It is not.

The principle objective of every central bank is the preservation of the banking system and the governmental authority which privileges it. Unemployment, price inflation, booms and busts are at best secondary concerns for central bankers.

Central bank “self preservation,” however, comes at a tremendous social cost – the impoverishment of everyone outside of the banking-governmental orbit. The creation of a “liquidity channel,” Quantitative Easing, ZIRP, or whatever other term the economic spinmeisters use are attempts to hide the fact that central banks create money out of thin air which ultimately results in the transference of wealth to the banking and governing classes of society. This is how the global ruling elites maintain their power and how, in the United States, a world empire is financed.

While the redistribution of wealth via monetary policy enrich the politically-connected financial elite, there are other baneful consequences. Money printing leads to the depreciation of the currency which manifests itself into a rise in overall prices. Naturally, central bankers and the clueless financial press blame general price increases on other factors – “oil price shocks,” “speculators,” “greedy” businessmen – when, in fact, it is the inflationary actions of the central banks.

The Dutch were powerless when Russian warships entered their waters

May 29, 2014

Admiral-Kuznetsov

The Netherlands’ navy didn’t have a single ship to escort a Russian flattop

(excerpt)

Russia’s only aircraft carrier Admiral Kuznetsov recently passed through the English Channel and into The Netherlands’ exclusive economic zone. But the Dutch navy had no ships available for escort duty.

Years of budget cuts have undermined the ability of European countries to perform routine military missions, such as accompanying Russian vessels as they sail close to their territorial waters.

The Royal Netherlands Navy has been among the hardest-hit of European armed forces—and now it painfully shows, as Moscow’s warships sail unchallenged near Dutch territory.

On May 8 Admiral Kuznetsov sailed through international waters in the English Channel, heading from the Mediterranean—where she had reinforced the Kremlin’s deployments around Ukraine—to her home port in northern Russia.
