Trump Is Considering Firing Fed Chair Powell | Zero Hedge

December 22, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

If amid the barrage of negative news hitting the market this quarter there has been one outstanding item which would have sent it sharply (even) lower, that would be a flashing red headline – or a tweet from the president – announcing that Trump has fired Fed Chair Jerome Powell.

And while to many such an act would seem unthinkable, even from someone as unorthodox and unpredictable as Trump, it now appears that’s precisely the outcome the market will have to worry about next as Bloomberg reports that the president has discussed firing Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell “as his frustration with the central bank chief intensified following this week’s interest-rate increase and months of stock-market losses”, citing four people familiar with the matter.

Is The Federal Reserve Actually TRYING To Cause A Stock Market Crash? – Michael Snyder 

December 20, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

 

The Federal Reserve has decided not to come to the rescue this time.  All of the economic numbers tell us that the economy is slowing down, and on Wednesday Fed Chair Jerome Powell even admitted that economic conditions are “softening”, but the Federal Reserve raised interest rates anyway.  As one top economist put it, raising rates as we head into an economic downturn is “economic malpractice”.  They know that higher rates will slow down the economy even more, but it isn’t as if the Fed was divided on this move.  In fact, it was a unanimous vote to raise rates.  They clearly have an agenda, and that agenda is definitely not about helping the American people.

Early on Wednesday, Wall Street seemed to believe that the Federal Reserve would do the right thing, and the Dow was up nearly 400 points.  But then the announcement came, and the market began sinking dramatically.

How the EU could be abolished with nations keeping the quantity of single euro currency under exclusive independent national control within nation state boundaries. | richard writings

December 16, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

Here are my initial thoughts on how the EU could be abolished on the continent with each newly independent nation retaining the single euro currency as their national currency albeit under exclusive independent national control and without an EU central bank.

It is a problem for which no economist’s model presently exists. Can the EU be abolished and an order of peaceful trading among sovereign nations replace it without eliminating the euro currency that Europe shares? I believe so.

Consider how the United States Federal Reserve System was originally proposed to function. The United States would be divided into twelve different Federal Reserve Districts with each district able to expand or contract money supply as the individual district reserve banks thought necessary for optimizing market activity in the respective districts.

Who Does America Belong to? – PaulCraigRoberts.org

The housing market is now apparently turning down. Consumer incomes are limited by jobs offshoring and the ability of employers to hold down wages and salaries.  The Federal Reserve seems committed to higher interest rates—in my view to protect the exchange value of the US dollar on which Washington’s power is based.  The arrogant fools in Washington, with whom I spent a quarter century, have, with their bellicosity and sanctions, encouraged nations with independent foreign and economic policies to drop the use of the dollar.  This takes some time to accomplish, but Russia, China, Iran, and India are apparently committed to dropping  or reducing the use of the US dollar.

Impeachment of the Federal Reserve

July 10, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

Throughout history, holding public officials accountable for wrongdoing has been elusive even under the most moral regimes. As an ordinary practice, crime pays, especially in public office. Personal gain is an obvious offense. However, misdemeanors against specific persons, entire classes of people or even crimes against humanity are routinely committed in the normal course of administrating governments. Woefully, a universal remedy to prevent such a chronicle of depravity has never been applied to the body politik.

How Long Can The Federal Reserve Stave Off the Inevitable? — Paul Craig Roberts – PaulCraigRoberts.org

June 27, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

When are America’s global corporations and Wall Street going to sit down with President Trump and explain to him that his trade war is not with China but with them? The biggest chunk of America’s trade deficit with China is the offshored production of America’s global corporations. When the corporations bring the products that they produce in China to the US consumer market, the products are classified as imports from China.

Six years ago when I was writing The Failure of Laissez Faire Capitalism, I concluded on the evidence that half of US imports from China consist of the offshored production of US corporations. Offshoring is a substantial benefit to US corporations because of much lower labor and compliance costs. Profits, executive bonuses, and shareholders’ capital gains receive a large boost from offshoring. The costs of these benefits for a few fall on the many—the former American employees who formerly had a middle class income and expectations for their children.

What We Must Not Overlook About The Default Crisis — Dick Eastman | richard writings

April 10, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

One thing that I find most revealing about the great default crisis is the fact that very early in crisis which began in 2007, the Federal Reserve, ever the private money market of the rich, introduced the policy of paying interest to banks for their excess reserves — that is the central bank paid money to the member banks for holding cash balances idle — not making loans on it — in the midst of the deflationary depression. How obvious does the engineering of the default crisis and subsequent depression have to be?

On March 9, 2006, the Federal Reserve governors released this notice: On March 23, 2006, the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System will cease publication of the M3 monetary aggregate. The Board will also cease publishing the following components: large-denomination time deposits, repurchase agreements (RPs), and Eurodollars.”

Jewish Banksters Identity Politics

December 15, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

Any discussion on the Federal Reserve inevitably will revert into the role of Jewish Bankers in the failures of the central bank. Resistance from the current Jackals of Jekyll Island prevents a Federal Reserve audit. The identity politics that absorb the banking elites usually revolves on money. However, when the financial establishment unites to shield the Fed to protect the likes of Greenspan, Bernanke and Yellen, one needs to ask why are Jewish Banksters put in charge of the central bank? Identity politics of the tribe comes to the rescue. The mere notion of asking such a question requires a slap down and charges of hatred.

Federal Reserve under Yellen

September 23, 2015 by · Leave a Comment 

Now that the big bluff from the Federal Reserve that interest rates were poised to start their eventual rise has been played, when will the trigger actually be pulled? Assumptions that the Fed act as custodians of the national trust to balance and maintain the economic stability has been proven wrong time and again. Just how well has their efforts translated into the real economy of business activities that reflects positively for the average American? Obviously, if you are not a hedge fund speculator, your response will be guarded at best.
