Banks

 

Is this the end of the crazy fiat money system?

Is the monetary system completely decoupled from the real economy?

bankers and investors living of a system that only exists in a virtual bubble… that could pop any time.

Is this the reason that “unfakeable” / unprintable (but still steal-able) cryptocurrencies rank so high in comparison to USD and Euro?

CashKurs: “Eurozone needs negative interest rates between -4% and -7% to survive”

“According to BIS-Bank for International Settlements 15% of all companies in Europe are so called zombie companies, which are still alive only because of the cheap money.

In the next coming recession, central banks will panic open all locks, push the interest rate further into Minus and print without end money to desperately save the whole System”

“Eurozone braucht zum überleben Negativzinsen zwischen −4 und −7%”

“Laut BIS – Bank für Internationalen Zahlungsausgleich – sind bereits 15% aller Unternehmen in Europa sogenannte Zombieunternehmen, die nur aufgrund des billigen Geldes noch am Leben sind. Bei der nächsten kommenden Rezession werden die Zentralbanken panisch alle Schleusen öffnen, den Zins weiter ins Minus drücken und ohne Ende Geld drucken, um verzweifelt das ganze System zu retten”

Money For the Rest of Us: What Happens If U.S. Interest Rates Turn Negative?

264: What Happens If U.S. Interest Rates Turn Negative?

let me start by saying: Thanks! To Edward Snowden and all investigative journalists that took the risk to help him.

Thanks to all involved.

comment:

Before-Snowden – people using the internet – could not imagine that governments was looking over their sholder 24-7 and recording every button they press.

Now Snowden has delivered the proof on the encrypted laptops he gave out to several Journalists – many of them too afraid to touch the material.

Without Snowden – the thought – that all our communications is recorded – maybe even FOREVER – and analyzed to build as he said “perfect histories” of people – of course – in order to track and hunt dissidents like the Nazis did with the Jews.

It also shows how corrupt and rotten to the core many of the so called democratic institutions – the beacon of civilization – the USA and other Western Nations – have become.

They are (largely digital finance) dictatorships with democratic painting.

Snowdens “left and right converge to authoritarianism” seems to give proof to that.

Shocking shocking shocking – what comes after democracy? More dictatorship?

Does not sound like a step forward to me.

As you can see with Assange now in held in prison and treated and probably tortured like a “terrorist” without ever planting a bomb shows the plot – label anyone against “the system” a terrorist – human rights do not apply to terrorists.

“Would US-gov (John Kerry (Skull and Bones 1966)) have grounded my passport in Ecuador – the CIA would have it much easier to catch me – but they grounded me in Moscow, Russia.

So Russia had the unique opportunity to do the right thing by doing nothing”

… was about to post something funny here… but can not… this matter is too serious.

fire your kindle… fire your nest… fire Alexa… fire Siri… fire Google… fire Microsoft!

FUCKING NOW!

“Both the publication of the ifo business confidence index

https://www.ifo.de/node/45735
https://www.ifo.de/node/45735

(a survey among 9,000 German firms) and the statistics of incoming orders for the manufacturing sector at the beginning of September revealed a continuation of the economic downturn in Germany that cannot be ignored anymore.

The business climate dropped to 94.3 points – its lowest value since November 2012.

Incoming orders (see Figure 2 below) point to a severe weakness of investment.

These factors, amongst others, further strengthen the now widespread expectation that the Federal Statistics Office of Germany (Statistisches Bundesamt) will announce negative GDP growth for the third quarter of 2019.

Since this would mark the second consecutive quarterly contraction, it means that the German economy would be officially in a technical recession.

The recession in Germany comes at a time at which the only readily available instrument in the Monetary Union (EMU) to fight recessions, namely monetary policy, is not available anymore.

Moreover, German policymakers, the media, and professional economists have imprudently ignored the downturn, so that a discussion about appropriate countermeasures on the fiscal side remained silenced and valuable time was lost.

The repercussions for several fragile member states of the EMU, such as Italy and France, could turn out to be ominous.”
