Bankster economist who called for an end to cash now calls for global QE4

It is incredibly funny when you realize that most market projections are determined by banks and economists who have a monetary interest in the outcome of their own analysis.  From the forecasting of quarterly earnings for individual stocks, to telling the Federal Reserve how they should perform monetary policy, the casino known as Wall Street is simply a segregated environment where 1%ers vie with other 1% ...

Another mainstream publication calls for the banning of cash

We have talked about in the past a paper published by a Harvard professor which argued that a ban on cash would be beneficial to helping the central bank perform monetary policies that give them much more latitude in the economic and financial arenas.  Of course, this 'educator' failed to recognize that it is not the fault of money that was ever the issue, but rather that fallible bankers, who are more ideo ...

Fed may have to enact QE4 just to buy up bonds being sold by China

In an interesting observation made on Aug. 27 by analysts at Bank of America, Chinese dumping of dollar reserves (Treasuries) may create such an impact on the United States, that the Fed would have to throw away any thought of raising interest rates and instead look very hard at implementing a new round of quantitative easing just to soak up the estimated $1.1 trillion that will be dumped onto the markets. ...

Is the ‘flight to safety’ in treasuries really the result of Fed mopping up China’s dollar dump?

Over the past two weeks we have seen the U.S. 10 year treasury roller coaster from a level of 2.2% on Aug. 17, to a low of 1.95 a week later.  Yet since that time the 10 year has moved back above the 'Mendoza line' to its current position of 2.12%.  And of course, the common response in the mainstream media to this drop in yield and spike in buying was due to a 'flight to safety' as traders exited the equit ...

Is the Fed using a loophole to prop up the stock markets through the Swiss central bank?

When the Federal Reserve was instituted back in 1913, it came into being with just two primary mandates.  The first was to curb inflation through the adjustment of interest rates,  and the second was to be a lender of last resort for troubled banks in need of liquidity.  Over time however, Congress pushed a third mandate onto their balance sheet, which was to ensure full employment in the economy. But after ...

Black Monday: No matter the spin, markets built on Fed policy instead of economy

In the past we have written about, and shown the charts of what has happened in the stock markets since 2008 after the Fed began their policies of near zero interest rates, and massive quantitative easing.  In fact, it was a case of simple analysis to realize that the rise and fall of the equity markets over the past seven years have been intrinsically tied to infusions of new money printing, where stocks a ...

Slowly but surely, Goldman Sachs is taking over the Western banking system

It is fascinating to think that just seven years ago, Goldman Sachs was on the cusp of bankruptcy.  However, thanks to a former CEO of Goldman (Hank Paulson) being in place as the Secretary of the Treasury at the time of the financial meltdown, the bank to the elite was saved when taxpayers bailed out AIG, and allowed Goldman to collect 100% on their worthless securities. And since this recovery by Goldman ...

Eight years later, the Housing bubble morphs into Rent bubble

Prior to the bursting of the artificially created Housing bubble in 2007, home prices had skyrocketed due to cheap money, low interest rates, and government policies that mandated banks lend to people who couldn't afford it.  And with many families remaining cautious or unable to purchase a home after millions of Americans had lost theirs during the run of foreclosures following 2008, renting in the U.S. ha ...

While the Fed tells Americans one thing, two major banks purchase tons of physical gold

There is a reason why CNBC has lost over 40% of their viewers after the 2008 Credit Crisis, and it is primarily because people have come to realize that most business networks are simply shills for the elite, and promoters of the Federal Reserve's party line.  And to validate this, all one has to do is look at a recent article from the Wall Street Journal where a pundit sought to equate gold to that of a pe ...

Nearly the trifecta as real jobs and durable goods data show U.S. already in recession

It's that time of the month once again when we see the government contradicting itself by manipulating economic data to spin the fact that we are in a recession, but unwilling to admit it.  In two data sets published on July 2 by the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) and in the number of factory orders, the trifecta has been nearly reached showing that the U.S. is no longer in a fed stimulated artificial rec ...

Unemplyment rate falls to 5.4% as economy creates 437,000 part time jobs, and ignores 93 million uncounted unemployed

The government propaganda machine was in full swing on May 8 as the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) announced their newest job numbers report that showed a decline in the unemployment rate down to 5.4%.  In fact, the job numbers report missed analyst expectations by 5,000 with a print of 223,000 new jobs compared to a forecast of 228,000, with the most important indicator showing that of these new jobs cre ...

Citigroup’s Chief Economist blames cash, not central banks, for world’s monetary problems

It doesn't really take that much to be an economist these days.  From the illustrious former Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke, to the Nobel Prize winning economist Paul Krugman, living the dream of being a celebrity while at the same time destroying economies and monetary stability is par for the course in an era when those who get it right are considered crackpots, and those who feed the needs of the ...
