Banks have become the state inside the state (in cooperation with the CIA/NSA/FBI?).
Even Trump a strong believer of modern days neoliberal capitalism – will see that this system is not about productivity and jobs and innovations (anymore, if it ever was) – it’s about money-empires, trickery and robbery with via debt created out of thin air.
“President Trump has been critical of the Fed’s approach and last week tried to pressurise it into not raising rates further, saying that it would be a mistake. “I think that would be foolish, but what can I say?” he said.” (src)
can’t say nothing – or get shot like Kennedy.
I hope the people over at the Fed will read today’s Wall Street Journal Editorial before they make yet another mistake. Also, don’t let the market become any more illiquid than it already is. Stop with the 50 B’s. Feel the market, don’t just go by meaningless numbers. Good luck!

“By Trump’s standards, those comments were restrained. Previously, he has called the Fed “crazy”, “out of control” and “loco”. He said he was “not happy” with chairman Jerome Powell, whom he nominated to the office, and said he had not done enough to support trade negotiations around the world by setting monetary policy to support the US economy.” (src)
Will central banks (controlled by private banks) pursuit their own private interest, rather than the interest of the country as a whole?
Will FED’s interest rate rise stop growth?
Will they crash the economy to shop cheap during the crash with self printed money?
Will the banks bet on the crash?
Will the ECB in Europe do it exactly like the FED?
Is there opportunity in crisis?
The Chinese word for crisis composes of two signs: danger (危) and chance (機) (first sign of chance/opportunity: 機會)).
I hope its a chance to reforms – that do not go into the 1984 direction (surveillance dictatorship with permanent warfare against artificial enemies, just to keep people “busy”) – if the people are united they win.
You could say 1984 is the “mass serial production” of suffering – this needs to be prevented.
Orwell: “don’t let it happen” – Snowden answered that call.
Because after all – some know how to profit from other’s misery and an old investor saying is: invest when there is blood flowing on the streets – probably not investor’s blood that shield themselves off behind barbwire.
Well let’s also face it – an economy can not grow forever.
So we need to think about post-growth economies that drive on renewable hydrogen and only produce products in a way to easily extract the resources out of “trash” to make anew IPhone out of the old IPhone – not dump it and ask Africa / China to ship more and more resources.
When it comes to reform of the monetary system Bernard Lietaer is THE GUY to ask – he himself a very innovative ex-banker has done a lot of good with alternative currencies – like cleaning up Brazil cities or get people access to gardens in Belgium.
When it comes to Post-Growth-Economy Prof Dr Niko Peach is THE GUY to ask.
“In addition to efficiency-related reasons, policymakers may seek to use housing policy to redistribute income and wealth” (src: FED)
that would be GREAT! Did not Trump want to make America GREAT again?
“shelter is a necessary ingredient for human survival”
“so when a (climate change induced) storm kills your house”
OMG! I never thought a banker could think that far! (src: FED)
The FED surely will print cash in order to HELP the State/Gov/Trump and it’s citizens (that not already own a house WITHOUT mortgage) to afford housing with 0% loans with a “pay back when you can” policy – no?
I would do that – provide all people unable to pay their mortgage with FED backed loan like this.
When it comes to rents: There need to be fixed prices negotiated that are fixed for 10 years – so both sides can plan better.
WHY EXACTLY NOT?
Housing Market seems to have hit the top? https://www.globalpropertyguide.com/
USA and Europe real estate market is stagnating – Investors should go to Moldova.
