Jim Willie On End of Fascist Business Model and Return to the Gold Standard

The Fascist Business Model incorporates all the worse elements of Keynesian economics, a broken fallacious school of thought. The model also integrates a vast system of economic heresy, put forth as public address dogma. All their messages are wrong. They are instead aligned with support of the power structure where big banks conduct self-dealing and print money for themselves.

Consider many of the Fascist Business Model messages, laced within the endless din of propaganda. Their messages are all false, in support of the existing power structure in place. The Jackass privately calls it Reich Economics, a truly broken appendix to the demonstrably broken Keynesian chapters of heretical economics. The West has followed the methods of John Maynard Keynes, who also held disdain for the Gold Standard. In doing so, the West has destroyed the financial platforms, eroded the capital formation devices, polluted the business arenas, and put the entire USEconomy at risk of systemic failure.

The only success of the model is preservation of power, which soon will come to an end.

Consider the many primary tenets of what the Jackass disparagingly calls Reich Economics, the phony standards of destructive economic and financial practices. They are all embedded in heresy. The public and financial professionals are coerced to accept the heresies as dogma, passed on by the high priests at the USFed and Wall Street banks. They are all highly destructive, yet widely accepted as valid and firmly in place.

 

ECONOMIC HERESIES

Quantitative Easing, the USFed initiative of bond purchases, is considered stimulus. It is not. Instead, it undermines the entire sovereign bond market. It encourages legitimate investors to dump USTreasury Bonds to the USFed itself, while other legitimate investors refuse to buy USTBonds. The effect is to force hedging against the hyper monetary inflation, to raise the cost structure, and to eliminate the profit margins. Entire businesses and business segments shut down, retire their capital, and slash jobs. QE saves the big banks by providing liquidity to insolvent financial structures. At the same time, by saving the Too Big To Fail banks, QE destroys the integrity of the entire USEconomy, if not the entire Western Economy.

 

Zero Interest Rate Policy is considered as a kick-start to the USEconomy, another stimulus. It is not. Instead, it distorts the price of money, distorts the financial market, and results in tremendous misallocation of capital. It also encourages a vast casino, whereby investors try to profit from anticipating the USFed itself. The nation has thus lost its way, unable or unwilling to pursue the correct fruitful path of capital formation, business creation, product development, job hiring, and profit generation. Worse, the entire industries of insurance and pensions are systematically destroyed, from the ultra-low interest rate. They cannot sustain their business models without the proper income from their books of business. Lastly, the ultra-low rate does not reward savers. Little known, the volume of consumer loans is much less than the volume of certificates of deposit at banks. Therefore, low rates slow the USEconomy, not stimulate it.  Silver Half Dollars As Low As $1.99/oz Over Spot!

 

The jobless rate is reported to be low. It is not. The actual figure for the Jobless Rate is taken directly from the state unemployment insurance rolls. When the Obama Admin two years ago stopped the 99-week extensions for recipients, the result was an immediate reduction in the jobless rate. Millions of people fell off the rolls, and were no longer considered unemployed. The Labor Participation Rate is the more accurate measure to follow. It is falling tragically, and supports the premise that the Jobless Rate is well over 20%.

 

The USEconomy is always reported to be in a sluggish recovery. It is not. By all accounts, it appears illegal for economists to claim a recession is in progress. They lose their jobs. The same goes for financial reports in the press and television broadcasts. They lose their jobs. Guests who mention recession are cut off. The reality is horribly painful. The USEconomy has been stuck in a vicious recession since 2007, of magnitude minus 4% to minus 6% every year on the Gross Domestic Product. The fiscal policy and monetary policy both contribute to the deterioration.

 

War spending is considered to lift the USEconomy with trickle down benefits. It is not. In fact, war spending is probably an order of magnitude more destructive than simple welfare payouts. The trickle down effect is destructive at every step. In a health environment, capital formation and development of products and services promotes a positive trickle down effect with streams of suppliers and efficiencies integrated. In war spending, explosions and killing are the name of the game. The trickle down is of destruction, ruin, and misery. The argument on reconstruction that follows the wartime activity is laughable. To be sure, some reconstruction takes place, but not sufficient in volume. Besides, the funds set aside for rebuilding are usually stolen by the Elites (see Kissinger, Clinton Foundation) while the Senators enjoy kickbacks.

 

The Too Big To Fail banks are considered essential to preserve. They are not. They are universally financial crime centers and criminal organizations. They are preserved at the expense of the USEconomy. The big US banks are in control of the USGovt, thus kept in positions of power. While the big US banks are kept in operation, the cost is heavy, since the USEconomy is permitted to degrade, deteriorate, and decay. The mantra should be that we save the big banks but killed the economy.

 

Federal deficit spending is considered to sustain long-term economic growth, and to avert recessionary spirals. It does not. Deficit spending is an accumulating disaster. In bad times, the deficits are enormous. In good times, the deficits remain sizeable. Over the long stretch of time, the deficits have made $20 trillion in unpayable debts which will never be repaid. The portion of foreign held USGovt debt went above the 50% level several years ago. Since the Lehman failure, foreign creditors have been secretly calling the shots, making many hidden decisions. The other hidden effect of the staggering federal debt is pressure to maintain the prevailing interest rate near zero. A normal rate of 5% would mean $1 trillion in annual borrowing cost alone. No discipline whatsoever exists in managing the deficits. Systemic breakdown and federal debt default are the result.

 

The sanctions imposed against Russia and Iran are reported as removing bad elements from integrated involvement in the Western Economy. It does not. The sanctions are designed to prevent the removal and abandonment of the USDollar as global currency reserve and global trade payment standard. The sanctions are motivated to sustain the King Dollar Court and to retain its global usage, which permits continued $trillion thefts by the banker cabal. To attempt a cutoff of Russia and Iran, two former historical empires, is both ambitious and impossible. They will both be integrated with the European Economy, as gas suppliers. The upshot will be more blowback against the United States, for its exception power plays and engrained corruption.

 

The central bank franchise system is considered as promoting economic growth, assuring financial stability, and encouraging employment. It does not. The system endorsed fake money, a debt based complex extravaganza of corrupt money. The system enables monetary creation by the bankers, ruin of the system by their invalid structure of money, then confiscation of assets by the creators of fake money. The central bank system sustains the banker power, which since 2001 has grabbed both the White House and the USCongress with its tentacles. The consequence of their century of rule with central bank pillbox controls has been Western Economic destruction and widespread big bank insolvency. Their continued plans are being interrupted.

 

The War on Terrorism is reported to keep America safe. It does not. The architects are the primary perpetrators of terrorism. They employ hidden tools with numerous mercenary groups, or simply hire the Mossad like in Paris, Brussels, and Nice. The fake war is to provide adequate smokescreen for rampant narcotics production, distribution, and integration within banking operations.

 

Expansion of the USDollar money supply is considered to lift the USEconomy and to enable its development. It does not. The bitter fruits of the Fascist Business Model cannot be seen more clearly in the fast falling Money Velocity graph. It is down almost 50% since QE was installed. The USD money supply has risen easily by double, yet the USEconomy is in tatters. In a most perverse manner, the new USDollars generated are a type of anti-matter in a financial sense. The pure unadulterated inflation is acid and destructive of capital and wealth engines.

 

NEW SCHEISS DOLLAR & GOLD TRADE STANDARD

In time, expect an eventual refusal by Eastern producing nations to accept USTreasury Bills in payment for trade.The IMF reversal decision assures this USTBill blockade in time, and might accelerate the timetable. The United States Govt cannot continue on five glaring fronts of gross negligence and major violations. These violations have prompted the BRICS & Alliance nations to hasten their development of diverse non-USD platforms toward the goal of displacing the USDollar while at the same time take steps toward the return of the Gold Standard.

The New Scheiss Dollar will arrive in order to assure continued import supply to the USEconomy. It will be given a 30% devaluation out of the gate, then many more devaluations of similar variety. The New Dollar will fail all foreign and Eastern scrutiny. The USGovt will be forced to react to USTBill rejection at the ports. The US must accommodate with the New Scheiss Dollar in order to assure import supply, and to alleviate the many stalemates to come. The United States finds itself on the slippery slope that leads to the Third World, a Jackass forecast that has been presented since Lehman fell (better described as killed by JPM and GSax). The only apparent alternative is for the United States Govt to lease a large amount of gold bullion (like 10,000 tons) from China in order to properly launch a gold-backed currency. Doing so would open the gates for a generation of commercial colonization, but actual progress in returning capitalism to the United States. The cost would be supply shortages to the USEconomy, a result of enormous export increases to China.

Central Bank Digital Currencies: A Revolution in Banking?

Several central banks, including the Bank of England, the People’s Bank of China, the Bank of Canada and the Federal Reserve, are exploring the concept of issuing their own digital currencies, using the blockchain technology developed for Bitcoin. Skeptical commentators suspect that their primary goal is to eliminate cash, setting us up for negative interest rates (we pay the bank to hold our deposits rather than the reverse).

But Ben Broadbent, Deputy Governor of the Bank of England, puts a more positive spin on it. He says Central Bank Digital Currencies could supplant the money now created by private banks through “fractional reserve” lending – and that means 97% of the circulating money supply. Rather than outlawing bank-created money, as money reformers have long urged, fractional reserve banking could be made obsolete simply by attrition, preempted by a better mousetrap. The need for negative interest rates could also be eliminated, by giving the central bank more direct tools for stimulating the economy. Read more ›

Fun with Fake Statistics: The 5% “Increase” in Median Household Income Is Pure Illusion

Supporters of the status quo nearly wet their pants with joy when the Census Bureau reported that real (adjusted for inflation) median household income rose 5.2% between 2014 and 2015. Too bad it was completely bogus: the supposed increase in everyone’s income is pure statistical trickery.

First, the marks who fell for it: here’s the Huffington Post wetting itself with glee: Average Americans Just Got a Huge Income Boost.

This headline is risibly wrong on a number of counts. Most importantly, a notch up in median household income doesn’t mean “average Americans Just Got a Huge Income Boost”: It means that half of households in 2015 earned more than $56,516 and half earned less than $56,516.

It does not mean every household saw a boost in income.

Please follow along as I show you how median household income works.

‘Hard’ Brexit Looms For Ireland

The risks that a ‘hard’ Brexit will have for Ireland has been outlined by economist Dan O’Brien. Having once worked for the European Commission as the EU mission’s economic and political affairs officer for Malta and having worked on a free trade deal, his opinions are worth noting.

BREXIT

O’Brien outlines the risks on the horizon in the Sunday Independent and the article is well worth a read as it highlights the risks posed by Brexit to the Irish economy.

“A hard Brexit is now the most probable of the possible outcomes, with all the negative consequences for this island that such a rupture would entail.”

On the Process of Awakening

There is a tremendous amount of pain in our society. There are many sources of this pain: the emotional desertification of dysfunctional families, the knowledge that we don’t fit in and never will, a widening disconnect between the narratives we’re told are true and our experience, and a social and economic structure that tosses many of us on the trash heap.

The lifestyle we’re told we need to be happy is unattainable to many, and disconcertingly unsatisfactory to the top 10% who reach it.

We cannot help but feel a hunger for authenticity, honesty, spiritual solace and human connection, but these are precisely what is scarce in our social and economic structure.

The process of awakening has many paths. For some, the path starts with the incoherence of official explanations and narratives. For others, it’s the inner search for truth via psychotherapy or spiritual practice.

For some, it’s an investigation into the way our economic and political hierarchy function. For others, art is the starting point: a film, a novel, a comic, a song.

For many of us, it begins with this simple but devastating realization: I don’t fit in. I don’t fit in, have never fit in and never will fit in. I play along because it’s easier on me and everyone I interact with to do so, and I value my independence which means I have to find a way to support myself. That is difficult, as what I like to do has little to no value in our economy.

What interests me is how the epidemic of pain and alienation that characterizes our society is the direct result of how our economy and social order is structured. Incoherence, self-destruction, pain and alienation are the only possible outputs of the system we inhabit.

I recently had an amazing free-form 1:50 hour conversation on these topics with New Zealand talk-show host Vinny Eastwood. Any conversation that stretches from the erosion of community to loneliness to Daniel Ellsberg to Marx to Taoism to alienation to Michelangelo Antonioni and on to the process of awakening is amazing in my view.

Here’s Vinny’s page with listening/viewing/downloading options, and the program on Youtube (please ignore my goofy expressions): The magic of bitcoin and cryptocurrencies (1:49:54)

My conclusion may strike many as radical, but to me it is self-evident: the primary source of the rot, insecurity, inequality and alienation of our society is the way we create and distribute money, which is the conduit for creating and distributing political power.

I explain why this is so in my books A Radically Beneficial World: Automation, Technology and Creating Jobs for All and Why Our Status Quo Failed and Is Beyond Reform.

If we don’t change the way money is created and distributed, we change nothing. Money = power. If we don’t devise a form of money that is beyond the reach of central banks and states, all “reform” is just window-dressing, simulacra of “change” that simply solidifies the system’s bogus claim of being reformable.

Cryptocurrencies are in their infancy. There will be many more iterations of Cryptocurrencies beyond bitcoin and Ethereum; recall that bitcoin went public in 2009.

There are security challenges with cryptocurrencies, and the potential for central-state meddling via backdoors in computer operating systems. But once we understand that community and the potential for a less toxic society and economy are crippled by the centralized structure of the state and its money, then there is no way forward but to develop structures of money, work, community, purpose and meaning that are outside the direct control of the state and central bank.

This sort of “crazy talk” is unwelcome. As I noted earlier this week on my chart of the Ministry of Propaganda, in the status quo, skepticism is always a conspiracy or a hoax.

So instead we consider an exploding opiate epidemic, an epidemic of obesity and metabolic illnesses, a discourse of inchoate rage and a Grand Canyon-sized gap between what we’re told is true and what we experience as true “normal.”These things are not normal; they are manifestations of a system that can only generate one output: self-destruction.
