    Good Report.

    Enjoyed the interview with Jim Rickards, will definitely read Currency Wars ASAP.

    I’m glad that the BRICS are standing up against the US/UK/Israel neoliberal axis of evil and are fighting back.

  4. Mini US says:

    Wow!
    You certainly get value for time with Jim Rickards.
    Great info covered in such short a time.
    You can even abandon the question to save time and just let him talk :)
    Awesome!
    Thanks for getting him back on Stacy and Max.
    Great shows each week.

    Still half way through currency wars need to get back on it!

    Looking forward to listenting to this on my drive home!! Tuesday and Thursday drive time’s are the best!

  7. Geek Boy says:

    This was one of the best Keiser Reports I’ve seen – fair play. It’s really all becoming “squeaky bum time” now isn’t it…?

  8. Bonn says:

    @ Max or Stacy
    When he mentions the “the Fed Wire system”
    Could u ask Jim Rickards …. that means like For a Country Like India if it has to Buy Oil , We have to buy in Dollars from OPEC…..but If what Jim Says is right then technically they can refuse or Control the amount of Securitys that could be sold , there by Controlling an Economy like India ‘s …by Denying it to sell Say X Amt. (which India would need fer purpose of buying Oil) But USA can turn around and say no no We will let u Sell only X times 0.7 thereby cutting our supply by 30 % ….
    Am I on the Right track ???

  9. Danny Cunnington says:

    Nice episode but Jim Rickards said something which seemed totally off base. He claimed that the US could freeze Chinese bond holding and this would be bullish for US bonds because it would take three Billion off-market??? Surely this would tell every foreign bond holder in the entire world that US Bonds are actually worthless as they can be frozen at any time arbitrarily. This would then leave the Fed as the sole buyer of US treasury bonds at which point all faith and confidence would immediately leave the US Dollar.

    I know Jim is a really smart guy but maybe he’s spent too much time hobnobbing with the other members of the CFR. A worthless Dollar immediately affects the US Military abroad. How would they pay for fuel or even food? Why would they follow orders if they have no money?

    He says “We play rough in a currency war”. The problem is to fight a currency war, you have to have a currency. Is threatening to commit suicide really a good tactic to scare your enemy? Wouldn’t the Chinese just say Okay then we will accept California and Texas in lieu of payment?

  10. kwazimota says:

    there is no currency war with china just like the war in vietnam .these are mutual friends with the same ultimate goal .

  11. Bonn says:

    @ Danny Cunnington
    He said 3 Trillion Dollars I think, Which China I think Holds
    ie Everythin China Holds…….

    But that Ducktails on what I just asked

    Margaret Brennan was introducing Phil Angelides before showing his face on screen. I thought she was talking about you Max. Bring ‘em on your show Max. Let’s hear more about his thoughts on banking regulations.

  13. MirrorMirror says:

    @Danny … “Okay then we will accept California and Texas in lieu of payment”

    Okay then we will accept Alaska, California , Washington State and Texas in lieu of payment

    ;-)

    BTW , I agree with you … the US would cause a Flash Crash in USD and never recover if they did that. The only thin holding it up is the MIC threat and public illusion/delusion.

    …. & I am not too sure about JR … for starters, he wears a suit ! :lol:

    Great show!
    I bought Currency wars, still have to find time to read it..
    So here is my suggestion: why doesn’t Jim make an audio book of it?
    When he is reading, it cuts the time of reading at least in half! :-)

  19. Bonn says:

    Also Thats Why we All our Worried about USA invading Iran ….. its more or less for the same reason
    If Iran Came out and Said we will Sell Oil only in Dollars
    My Guess is the Sanctions Would end the Next day

  22. Danny Cunnington says:

    @Bonn, That’s not everything China holds. China has large holdings of all sort of currencies and swap arrangements. It buy’s Iranian oil outside of Dollars, it conducts all energy purchases from Russia with a rouble swap on fixed pipelines and on & on. All it means is that China doesn’t have Dollars which goes on to mean that everybody, (Like Australia and the rest of the BRICS for example) that exports to China will have to conduct trade outside the Dollar. As soon at that happens, FOREX traders will join the dots in real time on millions of computer screens all over the planet and get the hell out of Dodge.

    Also, It’s 3 trillion not 3 billion. (I agree this would be chump change as it’s a thousand times less). The point is that the US can’t do anything more then wound China with this whilst blowing yourself out of the water. So there’s no need to stockpile Bangalore beverages unless you are holding USD and wish to hedge it.

  31. F. Beard says:

    “Wouldn’t the Chinese just say Okay then we will accept California and Texas in lieu of payment?” Jim Rickards via Danny C

    Jimmy apparently does not realize that US Government debt is ITSELF a form of money but one that pays interest. So the Chinese have ALREADY been paid. And if the Chinese get tired of collecting that interest then the US will be happy to exchange some brand new fiat for that debt.

    Jimmy Rickards should acquaint himself with Modern Monetary Theory.

    I will say this AGAIN if jimbo there was involved with the pentagon in some sort of econimic war game he would have come away with info about future amarican stratagy. wich means he now has a security clerance and is utterly under the control of the guberment. sorry he is a shill now no matter his cretibility befor that point! wich is not to say that listining to him is worthless you just need to be aware of the fact he is not speaking his true feelings on the matter and is working off of a government script

  38. BHCMAN says:

    Hello, I can see the US attempting to freeze the trading of Chinese UST as a panic effort. But in response the Chinese could possibly simply seize all US based business properties on Chinese soil. Then Washington will attempt to seize Chinese properties in the US. Then the next option is nuclear. Rut row, psychopaths always tend to taint whatever they touch.

  42. Danny Cunnington says:

    @KDT, I agree though it’s not black and white. When Jimbo released his book “Currency wars” and plugged it in all sorts of alternative media via interviews, the stock price of his Tanzanian gold mining company was flash crashed by nearly 25% although there seemed to be no reason for it.

    This means that he’s talking & writing about stuff which some faction doesn’t approve of in a sort of “We are not amused” sort of way. He’s a smart guy but he probably has to horse trade due to his ensnarement. That’s why I call his comments about freezing all of China’s bonds in escrow. He was also talking really quickly and was shortening his pauses. Then he slid in “China is at our mercy and they know it” thing.

    He also struck me as looking about five years older than the last time I saw him on Video with Laura Lyster’s Capital account a few short months ago. Maybe it was just Jet-lag.

    Escrow accounts are joint accounts used in trade. They are limited to contract and performance of the counter party established through mutual agreement. No party can legally switch to “Hold in escrow” without the consent of the other party because it’s contract law. Of course if the get out in obscured in the legalese small print then you are forced to show your deceptive hand at which point all trust vanishes for all observers. (Everyone on the planet).

    @ Danny Cunnington

    I agree China could just dump all that paper in the ping river and that would be the end of the US sovereign currency. How would the US pay for oil then?

    So you need to understand that Jim Rickards views this as a game. He is assuming the Chinese are playing and they want to win.

    But what if the BRICS decide to take the dice and go home?

    Congressman Ron Paul brought his message of personal liberty, fiscal responsibility and limited government to the Jerry Doyle Show today. Jerry asks the Congressman if he should “take one for the GOP” and endorse the eventual nominee or if he should “take one for the country” and run as a third party. His answer may surprise you.

    Washington Times compares Paul UCLA speech to Beatlemania
    From Washington Times Communities:
    “LOS ANGELES, April 5, 2012 – Ron Paul spoke at UCLA last night with several thousand people showing up to create a scene that made Beatlemania seem tame. One would not think that this man is trailing in all the presidential race polls.
    From an event standpoint, the speech at UCLA was a complete success. Dr. Paul knows how to galvanize people and within his fifty-or so minute speech, not one minute was spent talking about the presidential race, which leads to a very important question that must be asked….”
    Ron Paul speaks at UCLA

    “…..While Dr. Paul’s chances of winning the White House are dwindling, his star among the faithful is shining as bright as it ever has.
    It is one thing to dismiss gatherings of twenty students over pizza boxes. A crowd of several thousand people with empty seats few and far between must be respected.
    Ron Paul has a clear following. In a lengthy and often quixotic campaign with ups and downs, his UCLA speech was clearly a high note. Young people are often ridiculed for chanting slogans such as “this is what democracy looks like.”
    Yet on this night, it actually was. Only hours before baseball season was to begin, Dr. Paul clearly hit a home run.

    RP would also cut social spending thereby punishing the victims of the bankers. As for PMs as money, they are a traditional tool of oppression of the bankers and an absurd requirement for a so-called libertarian.

    RP is attacking the problem backwards. He needs to focus on eliminating the fascism in our government; then the need for socialism will “wither away”.

    I be fine thanks though I destroyed my trusty GPS (a Garmin Nuvi 350) trying to replace the battery. I was fond of that thing.

  60. ronron says:

    @Vonda. that old man in europe that killed himself was very brave. he did not want to die. the government wanted him to cut off his legs and sell pencils. this man will be talked about for centuries.

  61. Chinese Economists will be plotting ‘Nash equilibria’ maps and all kinds of stuff, in this financial game of chicken. China need an export market, so crashing the western economy is not in their best interests. Nor does China want ‘funny money’ in payment for their labour! The way I see it, is that the US Dollar is ultimately doomed, and the Fed knows it! their press statement not so long ago that they would print! print! print! without limit, tells us all we need to know,

    The tragedy of the Great Depression, was that productive machinery lay idle, and crops rotted in the fields….as people could not find jobs and starved! It is claimed that ants are telepathic, one entimologist holds a hammer ready to het the queen ant at a precice time, and observer entimologists perhaps over a mile away observe the workers. In the case of safari ants, the entire ant colony freezes to a standstill, instantaneously, and then wander about in dazed confusion…A rather nasty experiment in my view! Presumably if the queen ant dies a natural death, preparations are made well in advance, and a new queen ant is bred by the colony….This analogy is what I believe is our best case scenario, a new form of equitable exchange needs to be in place to replace the doomed dollar. Not a Chinese hammer blow! dumping all their Treasury Bonds in one single instant.

    —Good. I would lose a lot of respect for RP if he supported a cultist.—

    at least you reserved some respect for the man! and you really f#####g should!
    again: RULE THAT OUT!!! its not going to happen!
    why ruin a complete lifetime-achievement for a so called rigged “election” – “”already lost anyways btw..”" ;-) …. all that, at the age of 76 ?? … makes no sense whatsoever :-)

    —-RP would also cut social spending thereby punishing the victims of the bankers.—

    would he cut social spending to victimize anybody, just for fun ???? are you living in a bubble ???
    social spending has got totally overboard and out of hand EVERYWHERE!!!!! … thats the dirty trap, that made people more and more depend on the Nanny state in the first place!!!! … and it was always sold with “democracy-we are the good people-lie” … only, to tax people out of existence on almost everything … but somehow make ´em feel comfy. Brainwashed people no longer want to take care for themselves, meanwhile they demand to be taken care of by the government and the state! They are no longer capable of having their own thoughts and be individuals. Everybody is looking for a safe passport for LIVING!?
    If your/our politicians had not accumulated that much debt of funny money to fuel all this social favors (now fully established and used as a tool to further enslave you!) for future generations to finally get absolutely NOTHING of what ever we experienced within out lifetime so far, where does this go and where is the stop-sign, in your opinion???? who is ever gonna pay for all this ????? WHO ???????
    there have to be cuts for f###k sake!!!! and I hate it too!!!, but we all will have to face that somehow! We voted for this scum!
    Your country spends 3 billion a day, only to keep up the basic needs for its militatry !!!!
    to kill people all around the planet!?????
    This money saved, and spent otherwise for the needy, no problem, ….what a joke !!!!!!!!
    Read and study your constitution once, as you read the bible, and you might see ???
    Its about taking the challenge to put thing back in order, and like in every revolution, it will take victims ….. you don´t seem to UNDERSTAND whats at stake here !!!
    You just wanna go on …. wake up !!!!
    We all were asleep for so long!!!
    Somethings´got to give !!!!
    We all must learn to leave the “childrens world” and RISE UP! … and learn some self-responsibility again …. even if we have to take some losses NOW for accepting our false “milk and honey land-state of mind” .. we were brainwashed into !!!
    Its definitely OVER !!!

    —-RP is attacking the problem backwards. He needs to focus on eliminating the fascism in our government; then the need for socialism will “wither away”.—-
    Thats what he is doing all the time! He is the only one doing this! I wish, you´d pay attention!!!!
    If your only definition of “fascism” has to do with PM´s, I´m speechless!
    Get out of your box!!!! and face all the fascist stuff that is being forced upon us people, mostly coming from your country leaders …. all over the planet!!!!
    THEN, much much later, we might have to have a discussion about PM´s and stuff…

    —- As for PMs as money, they are a traditional tool of oppression of the bankers and an absurd requirement for a so-called libertarian.—-
    I do not disagree with here in the principle!

    I strongly believe in a transition phase to “translate” things and hopefully we will have a better or more just monetary solution, but for the time being PM´s seem to be the only hedge for governmental condemnation and currency devaluation!!

    nothing more than that!

    —- i don,t get global warming. seems the only thing we can do about it, is to accept blame, and pay the banks. why does Tracy care so much about proving this point? is she a bank?—

    Tracy is just not telling it all, I suppose. Sometimes its just about barking at people and hammering stuff. As if that would ever do anything good to people trying to catch up on a special issue? Although knowing they have spent some time educating themselves….
    all that hammering and being ruthless to people will actually never help her “cause”! :-)
    but rather do the opposite ….
    so, yeah, she might be a bank! ;-) … or she might just not have the time and will to
    really explain her thoughts thoroughly to make her point for all to see .. :-)

    @f beard RP is attacking the problem backwards. He needs to focus on eliminating the fascism in our government; then the need for socialism will “wither away”.

    as VB has stated you would do well to LISTEN to what DR.Ron Paul has said insted of what the media says he said then you would know that he has said almost word for word the same thing you just said

    as to “scocial spending” where dose the energy to fuel these programs come from??? at its core that is what we are talking about in the same way an orginisim must sustain its self by recovering all energy expended in acquiring food from the food acquiried the government cant simply SPEND what it dose not have with out bleeding out!!! that is what is happening now, IS IT HELPING??? not from my perspective, how can you sit there and claim that what has caused this to happen is going to fix it ??

    AND THAT IS NOT EVEN THE MAIN ISSUE all government spending is a moral hazzard to the population being governed !!!! it is human nature, no way around it so YOUR government spending is what is DRAWING these scumm baggs in to existance !! im not talking about wellfair and aid recipients here or even politicians , im refering to the people who work for and with the government , those others are the excuse for the beuracrats and special intrests who pander to them to exist they are the issue not poor people, and would they be poor if they were not being prevented from fending for themselves , by a system designed to foster employment (renting your freedom is EXACTLY the same as selling it) rather than self relience and self respect???

    Not a Chinese hammer blow! dumping all their Treasury Bonds in one single instant. Alastair Carnegie

    Let em. The US Government has no need and should not borrow its own money in the first place. That is one of the major roots of our fascist banking and money system.

    Everybody is looking for a safe passport for LIVING!? VB

    So people should just starve or be homeless if there are no jobs? Is it their fault the bankers wrecked the economy?

    You have it backwards. Government is the source of new money (“blood”) for the economy. If government did not deficit spend unemployment would be MUCH worse particularly when the banks aren’t lending because they are afraid to lend into the economy they wrecked.

    that is what is happening now, IS IT HELPING??? not from my perspective, how can you sit there and claim that what has caused this to happen is going to fix it ??

    A measly 25 billion is Chickenfeed to get the uber-criminals off the hook. I wish I could rob a bank of a few trillions and then just pay less than one-half of one percent to get my record expunged.
