2008 – 2017: Absolutely ‘nothing’ solved!

February 21, 2017

Since the financial crisis of 2008 up until today…government leaders, our political advisers, and our banking administrators have essentially accomplished ‘nothing’ meaningful. Our financial problems today are actually much worse than during the last crisis. Our deficits are continuing, our total national and consumer debt has grown, our trade relationships have regressed, and our general prosperity is now more unstable and dangerous than during and after 2008. So does this lead to progress going forward or regression? What does history teach?

My sense is that problems do not disappear just because our leadership has avoided focusing on the problems. Our National Debt in 2008 was $9.8 trillion vs. $20 trillion today and our deficit was $278 billion vs. $592 billion today. Our total personal debt was $17 trillion vs. $18.2 trillion today. Credit card debt was $944 billion vs. $1 trillion today. Total U.S. debt (including State and Local and Financial institutions) was $50 trillion vs. $67 trillion today. See the numbers at: http://www.usdebtclock.org for the two comparative periods.

Gross debts to GDP was 71.5% in 2008 vs. 105.6% today. M2 money supply was $7.6 trillion vs $13.3 trillion today. I think the message is clear. Our Central bank has pumped up the monetary digits to ‘paper’ over the problems but there has been ZERO progress in resolving (solving) any of our financial problems. So can this trend continue forever? I don’t think so! At some point problems will overwhelm the inaction of our leaders/administrators and this means a serious crash in investor/consumer ‘confidence’ coming.

The precise date of the coming breakdown in ‘confidence’ is impossible to predict as our Central bank computers will continue to pump up the numbers as LONG AS THEY CAN. Also, human nature does not like to deal with problems which can not be readily solved. Our Keynesian model of economics has been a ‘one-way-street’ since its inception in 1934. The model can only deal with increasing numbers (called ‘values’) as the underlying debts do not disappear. So pump-priming via Central bank manipulations will continue until investor/consumer ‘confidence’ breaks.

I sense a small break in ‘confidence’ when it comes to many Geo-political issues (say immigration, the Middle East situation, and trade issues) but there has been no serious break in trader/investor/consumer ‘confidence’ as yet. Traders mostly buy into the bubble markets and the controlled financial media will continue with their hyper-positive psychology as long as possible. This means that our bubble markets could continue UP for some time. It’s shocking that traders/investors have so much ‘confidence’ in these illusionary cyber markets.

But when I look at history, bubble markets can continue for much longer than is logical to thinkers like me. The infamous tulip bubble started around 1593 and didn’t collapse fully until 1637. Tulip mania reached its peak during the winter of 1636–37, when some bulbs were reportedly changing hands ten times in a day. No deliveries were ever made to fulfill any of these contracts, because in February 1637, tulip bulb contract prices collapsed abruptly and the trade of tulips ground to a halt. This reminds me of the ‘paper’ gold trades of today. No delivery occurs and ‘imaginary’ trades continue!

By 1636 tulips were traded on the exchanges of numerous Dutch towns and cities. This encouraged trading in tulips by all members of society; Mackay recounted people selling or trading their other possessions in order to speculate in the tulip market, such as an offer of 12 acres (49,000 m2) of land for one of two existing Semper Augustus bulbs, or a single bulb of the Viceroy that was purchased for a basket of goods worth 2,500 florins. The complete collapse happened suddenly on February 5, 1637.

According to Mackay, the growing popularity of tulips in the early 17th century caught the attention of the entire nation; “the population, even to its lowest dregs, embarked in the tulip trade”. By 1635, a sale of 40 bulbs for 100,000 florins (also known as Dutch guilders) was recorded. By way of comparison, a ton of butter cost around 100 florins, a skilled laborer might earn 150 florins a year, and “eight fat swine” cost 240 florins.[6] 

The message from history is that bubble markets can continue as long as general ‘confidence’ is maintained within the marketplace. Money is a confidence game and bubble markets will continue until they end. Psychology must now continue to pump UP our markets AS LONG AS POSSIBLE. We live in markets which are illusionary and psychological. This continuing support for these bubble markets is shocking to a thinking person, but it reveals that MOST leaders/administrators/traders/investors do not think.

What is happening today could be reported as dire/ominous to a person of discernment and understanding…but to financial administrators and political leaders who need pumped-up markets to prevent chaos this mindset is unlikely to change. Group think is very powerful within the arena of finance/politics and within our global capital markets! Just look at all the hype being given to these markets by those who are temporarily prospering from the gains. Money and making more money has a powerful psychodelic effect on the human mental state. We need to watch this unique psychology for future understanding of human behavior.

Illusions will END, however, at some point. The tulip mania ENDED.  John Kenneth Galbraith‘s A Short History of Financial Euphoria (1990; written soon after the crash of 1987), used the tulip mania as a lesson in morality. Tulip mania again became a popular reference during the dot-com bubble of 1995–2001. In the 21st century, journalists have compared it to failure of the speculative dot-com bubble and the subprime mortgage crisis. In November 2013 Nout Wellink, former president of the Dutch Central Bank, described Bitcoin as “worse than the tulip mania,” adding, “At least then you got a tulip, now you get nothing.”

The END will arrive at some point (maybe in 2017): I am: https://kingdomecon.wordpress.com.

Infrastructure ‘in place’ for Mark of the Beast!

February 19, 2017

Commerce is key to human survival and those who control our commerce control the system and the people. Today, our money system is changing from a ‘substance’ system to a metaphysical ‘symbol’ system. Money is transitioning to cyberspace from our historical observable space. This change is monumental when understood. This means that our entire global monetary system will soon be cashless (no physical money units) and metaphysical (no substance units). Where does this eventually lead? I would suggest the ‘Mark of the Beast’ monetary system! Let’s see some evidence!

What Is A Cashless Society?

A cashless society is a society where currency notes or cash money are not used in monetary transactions. It is a hypothetical move or situation in favor of alternative means of exchange. Cashless societies in the past were based on the barter system where people exchanged their livestock for food crops or other goods. However, the present concept of a cashless society or country is a completely new thing. Here cashless transactions are made with the help of digital currencies. In a truly cashless society, legal tender (money) is exchanged and recorded only in the electronic digital forms. Our global economy is now mostly digital (computer driven).

When Did The Trend To Go Cashless Begin?

During the late 1980’s and the 1990’s, the growing popularity of electronic banking made the use of non-cash transactions and settlements popular. Digital payment methods became well established in countries across the world by the 2010’s. Online tools like Paypal, Google pay, NFC payments, Credit Cards, were the primary method for payments. Digital wallet systems operated by Apple, electronic banking and bill payment systems helped people make cashless transactions online. Some countries even started to set limits on transaction values that can be used for non-electronic payments to encourage cashless transactions. These limits are now growing in most countries.

Countries which are now going Cashless and Digital:

One country stands out as the flag bearer for digital money: Sweden. According to the Swedish central bank, cash transactions made up just 2 percent of the total value of payments made in 2015. The number is similar for 2016. An astonishing 900 of Sweden’s 1,600 bank branches no longer maintain cash deposits, a report in the Guardian said. As technology advances and the fight against tax evasion takes center stage globally, some countries are looking at Sweden as a possible model for promoting a digital (cashless) society.

India’s attempt to digitize their economy has long been coming. Early in his term, Narendra Modi announced a much-needed drive to increase financial inclusion across the country and launched attractive financial schemes to bring India’s poor into the fold of the country’s banking system, from debit cards to pension plans. The goal is total digitization of the Indian economy. Paper notes are being called in and customers are being encouraged to open digital banking accounts.

While digital payments are dominated by debit or credit cards in many Western countries, China’s consumers have jumped directly from cash to mobile. Of the country’s 710 million internet users – more than the United States and Europe combined – the utilization ratio of mobile online payments stands at 57.7%. This is growing exponentially. Put in plain English, the majority of people who go online are using their smartphones to pay for goods and services.

2016 has been the ‘Year of the Blockchain,’ with corporation after corporation, even nations, touting their interest and ability to use Bitcoin’s underlying advancement in their future business models. Will 2017 be the ‘Year of the National Digital Currency?’ Ukraine looks to enter the cashless society with a plan on creating their own national digital currency based on the Blockchain technology, according to Ukrainian news site Ukrinform.

The United Nations ‘Better than Cash Alliance’ (https://www.betterthancash.org/members/government) currently has 25 nations that are members of the alliance. All are working on creating a cashless (digital) society for their countries. Pakistan, Afghanistan, Columbia, Peru, India, Philippines, Kenya, and Mexico are a few of the members. Which Are The World’s Most Cashless Countries?

Rank Country Noncash Payments’ Share Of Total Value Of Consumer Payments % Of Population With A Debit Card
1 Belgium 93 86
2 France 92 69
3 Canada 90 88
4 United Kingdom 89 88
5 Sweden 89 96
6 Australia 86 79
7 The Netherlands 85 98
8 United States 80 72
9 Germany 76 88
10 South Korea 70 58

If we think about our global banking system, we can conclude that all banks are now part of the digital Swift payments system. Competitive payment systems which are emerging in Asia are also digital systems. All this is because we now have a computer driven global economy. Computers, algorithms, and select software programs determine what is happening within our global cyber markets. All businesses are converting their accounting systems to digital and this means that the ‘Mark of the Beast’ financial system is essentially here now.

The implementation of the ‘Mark of the Beast’ system will likely start after our current bubble economy crashes. Our governmental authorities will then demand that everyone follow precise rules which mandate their economic behavior. Authorities will likely demand that everyone give allegiance to their digital (cashless) financial system. Those who refuse to comply will be restricted from using the system for their survival. This starts the clock for the ‘Mark of the Beast’ system which has been prophesied in scripture.

Either you comply with the State or you must barter for your goods and services and take the risk of being arrested. Watch this video from Mr. Trump: https://youtu.be/vFofB6RaB4I which reveals his inner sense that our global economy is now in a huge bubble. When will this bubble burst? It could happen any day now. It is currently being prevented from crashing by our Central Bank trading computers. Central Banks can continue this manipulation until confidence crashes due to all this manipulation and economic distortion. Watch: https://youtu.be/vFofB6RaB4I.

The big banks and the governments of the industrialized world are doing all they can to get us to voluntarily transition to a digital system. The big banks want a cashless society because it is much more profitable for them and mostly free for them (they create the cyber digits from their thinking…no mining of silver/gold is necessary or even a printing press).The big commercial banks earn billions of cyber dollars in fees from debit cards and they make absolutely enormous profits from credit cards. Most governments around the world are eager to transition to a cashless society as it gives them CONTROL over all economic behavior. All money transactions can be traced in real-time.

Also, a digital system allows computers and algorithms to monitor and track all monetary transactions (personal, corporate, and governmental). Crime is supposed to diminish as a result of a digital (cashless) world. In reality, this is pure myth as criminals will use cyber warfare/hacking to accomplish their goals (anyway). The real goal of this system is to CONTROL people’s behavior and monitor people’s actions. Enslavement results for the people (gradually) as the authorities in power prosper and manipulate the overall system. Give these issues some thought at your leisure. Your survival is at stake! The ‘Mark of the Beast’ infrastructure is now ‘in place’. Beware – going forward! I am: https://kingdomecon.wordpress.com.

Understanding – International Flows of Funds ($$$)!

February 17, 2017

The evolution of money has entered a new paradigm where our money flows are now mostly within cyberspace. This new paradigm is now becoming global and ubiquitous as metal and paper money is being eliminated from circulation gradually and relentlessly. Historical monies like paper notes and fiat units of account tied or backed to a commodity (gold/silver) have mostly been replaced with fiat cyber/digital currencies which ‘flow’ and ‘circulate’ within our computer screens. Cyberspace is now a reality for currency ‘flows’. Let’s briefly describe this historical evolution:

  1. Paper currencies started around 618 A.D. (or thereabouts) in China and these units were fiat in nature as their was no tie or convertibility to a commodity produced by the private market (say, mining).
  2. These paper currencies worked as people respected the ‘images’ printed upon the paper notes. When the Kublai Khan was in power his ‘image’ (this symbol on a paper note) was trusted by the people and valuation of all goods could be accomplished with these notes (called ‘symbol’ money).
  3. Due to corruptions of central authorities who issued these paper note currencies, the concept of backing a currency with a precious metal commodity emerged within governmental institutions. Silver (later gold) emerged as primary items of backing and this worked well for hundreds of years (mostly). This money was called ‘substance’ money.
  4. Americans developed their ‘dollar’ currency back in 1785 and after the experience with the paper Continental, our authorities decided to back our dollar with precious metals (a ‘substance’). This continued for 148 years until the FDR administration in 1933-34.
  5. Paper notes called the Federal Reserve Note were then mostly trusted as units for valuation until 1975…when Congress removed the restrictions on American ownership of gold. Since 1975 Americans have gradually been losing their confidence/trust in these fiat physical notes issued by our Central bank (and their proxies). Gold and silver have gained some credence since 1975.
  6. Starting in the 1980’s and 1990’s money became digitized as the technology of computers spread nationally and globally. Today, the trend is to remove all paper notes and metal coins from circulation and live with our new fiat digital dollar.
  7. The fiat digital $ (including all global digital currencies) are not printed or mined from the soil (as prior historical monies) but are created via our authorities mental thinking/consciousness. The unit ($) is then attached to a photon of light (via digitization) which distributes the unit ($) from computer screen to computer screen. All this is now done at near the speed of light via our high-speed computers.

So what has emerged these past 3000 years in the realm of money is an evolution from physical money (paper, metals, objects…from nature) to non-physical monies (cyberspace digits…created from select banking mind’s). Today, our currencies circulate with various ‘names’ (dollar, euro, pound, yuan, yen, ruble, etc.) which confuse many as these ‘names’ are mere ‘mental abstractions’ and/or ‘units of consciousness’ (not a substance).

The ‘flow’ of funds is now a flow within our consciousness (or within cyberspace…our extended consciousness) as we think, visualize, buy, sell, trade, and invest cyber symbols ($) and numbers ($1). We then look at our computer screens for evidence of this ‘flow’ of mental abstractions (called money). Charts and flow diagrams provide the visual stimuli (or feel) that our digits are real and relevant. Trust is mostly an ‘inner’ sense that these cyber symbols will prevail and continue to be viable for the valuation of goods and services (nationally and internationally indefinitely).

But what many are now realizing is a sense that non-physical cyber money units are really not real or viable long-term. These units, which we visualize within our computer screens (our extended consciousness), are really not ‘things’ with any substance or real existence within our time/space world. They reside within a new space called Cyberspace. Cyberspace is generally defined as that space which we witness as we type and communicate via our various computer devices. The space creates an ‘illusion’ of reality!

Our money is now mostly ‘metaphysical’ at the core and we witness the ‘metaphysical’ actions of our Central bank authorities (as well as all banking authorities) as they create, digitize, and circulate these units of nothing (called money) within our computer accounts. QE (quantitative easing) is a good example. Our currencies ($$$) get created after a select banking authority thinks up a loan amount or some quantitative easing number (QE) for their input into a computer screen account. It then becomes official ‘legal tender’ for all goods/services.

Digital accounts are now ubiquitous for all our banking authorities as well as for most consumer recipients who have converted to digital accounts. Cyber $$$ are deposited into various digital bank accounts (automatically) after getting created (initially) by banking authorities who decide (internally) what number(s) to create, lend, or enter into their digital bookkeeping ledger. Today, I receive all my social security flow ($$$) from a computer in Washington D.C. which automatically sends my $$$ directly to my digital Wells Fargo account. This now happens to nearly all recipients of government funds.

What we now need to recognize is that money has evolved from a material object from nature (cowrie shells, tobacco, wampum, silver, gold, paper) to a mental abstraction ($) which resides within our inner consciousness. Today, the ‘flow’ of funds ($$$) is mostly a flow within our ‘inner’ being (our mind)…and our extended mind (called cyberspace). There is no ‘flow’ that circulates within our space/time universe (with the minor exception of the minimal paper/metal monies still existing and circulating).

India is now removing all their paper currency units from circulation (gradually/relentlessly). They are converting their monetary markets to a digital system. This is happening in Sweden, all of Europe, China, all of Africa, some of South America, and most of the USA, Canada and Australia. Our elite authorities are creating a ‘Mark of the Beast’ monetary system for the entire planet…in order to control, monitor, and enslave all of mankind. Central banks (mostly independent from public voters) are implementing this digital system for everyone (now some 7.5 billion people on planet Earth).

The process of global digitization is now under the auspices (mostly) of the Central Bank for all Central Banks called the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) in Basel, Switzerland. You can witness their website for some of these details at: http://www.bis.org. Global economic governance is already here and few discern what has happened. Converting all our monies to digital form and centralization of all monies within banking allows all this to happen without any votes by the general public or consumers. We are all being enslaved but mostly unaware of our enslavement!

Global governance or world governance is a movement towards political cooperation among transnational actors, aimed at negotiating responses to problems that affect more than one state or region. Institutions of global governance—the United Nations, the International Criminal Court, the World Bank, the International Monetary Fund, the World Trade Organization, the U.S. Federal Reserve, the Bank of England, the Peoples Bank of China, the Bank of Japan, the European Central Bank, and the Bank for International Settlements are all part of this globalization process now in progress.

To comprehend what has happened in just the past 15 years we need to think globally and act locally. The ‘Mark of the Beast’ monetary system is here now. The infrastructure has been installed and we now live with a global network of cyber market operations for almost all our trade. Goods and services are now being valued with digital currencies and the American digital dollar influences some 70% of all global trade transactions. Wake-up to a NEW world of cyber money, cyber trading, cyber transactions, and cyber warfare. The human mind is at the core of all this change.

The new concepts today are words like: cyber currencies, cyber trading, high-speed computer trading, algorithms for entering and exiting trades, source codes for programming price changes in real-time, algorithmic trading strategies,  robotic trading, quants programming algorithms, automatic investing via robots, central bank digitization of currencies, quantitative easing manipulations, real-time investing, electronic exchanges and indices, speed of light transactions. We live in a NEW world already which will change rapidly going forward. Time to wake-up! Enjoy! I am: https://kingdomecon.wordpress.com.

U.S. Fed Policies affect ‘all’ Global Institutions!

February 16, 2017

Image result for scott alvarez federal reserve bio

Scott (the Fed’s legal mind) is retiring according to an article in today’s W.S.J.

Image result for power and independence of the federal reserve

Today’s W.S.J. article entitled ‘The Most Powerful Man in Washington You’ve Never Heard of’…written by Peter Conti-Brown reveals that events are rapidly changing at our centralized banking super-power institution. The Fed will soon be losing their primary legal counselor, Mr. Scott Alvarez, who has acted as a key policy-maker (without full Congressional awareness) behind the scenes for these past 36 years. Why this change now? I think it reveals that our Fed is finally getting some scrutiny and pressure from many outside sources. Watch as events now get more serious as our global economy starts to head downward.

Mr.  Peter Conti-Brown, a professor at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School, has also written a book which is getting rave reviews in the press today…called ‘The Power and Independence of the Federal Reserve’. My brief review of the message of this book reveals that many thinkers are now starting to reevaluate this institution which we call the U.S. Fed. How did it evolve from its founding and is it a Constitutional entity as structured today? Why do we all need to get informed on this mostly secret organization and its power/influence over all our markets?

Peter Conti-Brown provides an in-depth look at the Fed’s place in government, its internal governance structure, and its relationships to such individuals and groups as the president, Congress, economists, and bankers. My brief review of his book and his podcast reveals that our Fed (as structured today) is basically a political creature with an F.O.M.C. which is essentially unconstitutional given how it operates. Our new President, Donald Trump, may now desire to shake-up this centralized institution with his new appointments to the Board and his public tweets about this organization.

Janet Yellen has just over one year left to serve as Chairman of the Fed and it is possible that she may be out of her leadership position than or even sooner. Can Mr. Trump fire Ms. Yellen now? This is a legal issue where opinions vary. Could Congress independently change the existing Federal Reserve Act to change the ‘independent’ status of this entity and return real-time oversight to their domain? This is another issue that is contentious but may arise in the coming months as Fed policy decisions become more dire for the entire planet. Let’s stay current on what is happening and get educated on this historical institution (which few comprehend or understand).

The following chart reveals that some 70% of global currencies (now cyber units) are affected when dollar policies within our U.S. Fed change. This is huge and makes our Fed the Superpower of monetary policy on our planet.

What this graph implies is that about 70 percent of world GDP has its monetary policy effectively set by the F.O.M.C.! Given the size of the dollar bloc and its spillover effects, it is likely the Fed’s total influence on global monetary conditions is even larger.
This is staggering. It means that twelve Fed officials that meet in Washington D.C. (secretly) largely determine global monetary conditions. The Fed is truly a monetary superpower for our entire planet.
Our U.S. Fed is finally getting some scrutiny by many thinkers and this will likely change some of the behavior within this organization going forward. Currently, there are two vacancies within the seven member Board of Governors. Who will the Donald choose to fill these vacancies. Will some existing members also choose to resign given that real media exposure is now happening? Watch and think about the Worldviews of any new appointments whom the Donald might appoint. Read the following for more info on what is now happening:
The Monetary Superpower: As Strong As Ever

[A] defining feature of the US financial system is that its central bank, the Federal Reserve, has inordinate influence over global monetary conditions. Because of this influence, it shapes the growth path of global aggregate demand more than any other central bank does. This global reach of the Federal Reserve arises for three reasons.

First, many emerging and some advanced economies either explicitly or implicitly peg their currency to the US dollar given its reserve currency status. Doing so, as first noted by Mundell (1963), implies these countries have delegated their monetary policy to the Federal Reserve as they have moved towards open capital markets over the past few decades.

These “dollar bloc” countries, in other words, have effectively set their monetary policies on autopilot, exposed to the machinations of US monetary policy. Consequently, when the Federal Reserve adjusts its target interest rate or engages in quantitative easing, the periphery economies pegging to the dollar mostly follow suit with similar adjustments to their own monetary conditions.

[…] The second reason for the global reach of US monetary policy is that a large and growing share of global credit is denominated in dollars. That means the Federal Reserve’s influence over the dollar’s value gives it influence over the external debt burdens of many countries.

[…] The third reason for the extended reach of US monetary policy is that other  advanced- economy central banks are likely to be mindful of, and respond to, Federal Reserve policy given the large size of the dollar bloc…  These  findings imply that even  inflation- targeting central banks in advanced economies with developed financial markets are not immune from the influence of Federal Reserve policy. This has led Rey (2013, 2015) to argue that the standard macroeconomic trilemma view is incomplete.

If you desire more perspectives on global economic events you can also visit this link: http://macromarketmusings.blogspot.com/.

What is now happening is that attention is being focused upon our global Central Banks and their control over all economic outcomes. This is good and it will reveal that we live under a corrupt system which does not represent reality or the people on this planet. Money rules over everyone and a few select powerful elites RULE over us all with their positions of POWER. Let’s get educated so change can evolve from the bottom. Enjoy!

Some additional items to consider as you learn about our Central Bank:

Where does the Fed get its currency from? How did the Fed’s balance sheet increase from $800 billion (2008) to $4.5 trillion (today)?  Can any of our National debt be repaid or liquidated? Who is mostly responsible?

Image result for fed's balance sheet 2016

Our Fed has created trillions of cyber currency units from ‘thin air’ since the 2008 financial crisis (also called money from ‘no thing’). Who gets these ‘trillions’? Do the units represent anything real? What has happened to America’s historical Capitalism?

Bubble Markets – who is responsible?

February 15, 2017

Image result for bubble markets everywhere, stocks and real estate

The above issue of Barron’s was 3.5 years prior to today, yet many thought a ‘bubble’ was present then. Today, our Dow Index is 20,611 (so what might we call today’s BUBBLE)? A HYPER BUBBLE?

Image result for bank stocks in a bubble

So far in 2017 our index markets have been increasing at record rates. New records are being set daily. Are we now in a huge ‘bubble’? I think so! Stocks have been elevated by our computer driven traders to unsustainable levels…and mostly due to our Central bank policies and their connections to our global electronic exchange markets. The Bank of America stock, for example, has increased some 41% since Trump was elected on November 8. The Goldman Sachs stock has increased some 37% during this same time period. These records reflect what many call the Trump psychological effect. I would differ. They reflect the desire of our coordinated Central bank driven markets.

The global index markets have all been going up in a coordinated fashion since the Trump election on November 8. The markets in Asia, Europe, South America, Africa, and North America all have increased with coordinated efficiency. Is this a natural phenomena (driven by retail traders) or could this be a result of a coordinated desire by our integrated network of Central banks desiring this outcome? What we need to recognize is that we now have some 175 Central banks on this planet and all these banks have been integrated into a global cyber network where actions can be driven by a set of coordinated policies. The Bank for International Settlements is primary responsible IMO.

All the 175 Central banks on our planet are now integrated into a global computer network where policies can be coordinated to achieve specific results. See this website for the websites of all our Central banks: https://www.bis.org/cbanks.htm. You can click on each website and notice the similarity of concepts and data within each Central bank. This looks like a global network of integrated decision-making for our entire planet. And the central coordinator for the system is this institution called the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland. The BIS is our central coordinator for the global Central bank system.

What is now emerging is a ONE world global system for coordinating all monetary decisions on this planet. All this can be accomplished behind closed doors where the public is mostly unaware of what’s happening. Computers, insider rules, proxy traders, proxy dealers, and group think psychology (among the policy-makers) can accomplish this coordinated result for most nations and for all the electronic exchanges. Monetary policy is now connected with our electronic stock/bond market exchanges and this means that a global coordination is possible (at least for 85% of the planet).

All this is gradually leading to the prophesied ‘Mark of the Beast’ monetary system for our planet. All mankind will be enslaved to ‘symbols’ and ‘numbers’ (mental abstractions) within the computer screen (cyberspace) for their survival. If I don’t have the correct ‘numbers’ (password) to access my cyber accounts then I can not enter the system. All will be computer controlled and our Central bank in Basel, Switzerland will be the ultimate coordinator for the system. The system is almost here now. Check out the BIS website for the details on this Central coordinating Authority: https://www.bis.org/index.htm

What we need to recognize is that our Central bank policy-makers do not report to the general public (the voting people) nor to the governing politicians. These elite are ‘independent’ of all voters and the influence of all elected politicians. Mr. Trump can not change the outcome of these decision-makers as an independent politician. He is subservient to their behind closed-door policies and manipulations. So are all the voting public. We are all essentially enslaved right now to these unelected dictators. Tyranny is already here for those with a discerning mindset. The ‘Mark of the Beast’ system has begun and it will continue until it ends.

What does all this imply going forward? To me this implies enslavement to a corrupt system which promotes absolute control over the mind’s of common people. Those outside the control system become enslaved and those running the system become tyrants who prosper at the expense of the enslaved. It’s all a corruption that must eventually be reversed if mankind is to survive. Think about what is now happening on this planet. Our bubble markets will eventually correct and when this happens the system of economic enslavement will worsen.

There is no solution to this result without the people waking-up to who is behind all this corruption. Now is the time to get yourself educated and to become aware of what is happening. Money rules this planet and those in control of the money system enslave the masses. This could be changed but it requires that masses of people must get themselves educated on what has transpired and who is behind all this corruption. The ultimate source is a metaphysical entity which works through the human consciousness. That’s my view as of today! Think for yourself on these matters! Enjoy!

More on Global Currency Manipulation!

February 14, 2017

There were two articles in today’s W.S.J. (Wall Street Journal) which were relevant to the issue of global currency manipulation. Judy Shelton had her opinion article called ‘Currency Manipulation Is a Real Problem’ and the other article was entitled ‘U.S. Eyes New Tactic to Press China’ (front page of W.S.J.). Both these articles point to the fact that currency manipulation continues so as to influence global trading actions. China, Japan, Mexico continually manipulate their cyber currencies via their Central bank operations. This is daily for these manipulators. The USA does similarly!

Taiwan, Singapore, and South Korea also manipulate their currencies to gain export advantages within their markets. Basically, all major exporters now manipulate their cyber currencies so as to influence trade for their nation. This is ubiquitous and will not stop as long as our global currencies live within cyberspace. Cyber currencies are basically ‘imaginary’ currencies and fluctuations in value are automatic as these currencies trade with their cyber counterparts. There is no standard of value today which is ‘independent’ of these currencies (like under the Bretton Woods Agreement).

Gold has been abandoned from our international system as the ‘tie’ to material reality. Today, cyber currencies (also called digital/electronic currencies) make up our global trading system. What many seem unaware of is that these ‘cyber’ currencies are subjective units of consciousness (not material ‘objects’ within space/time). This means that these currencies can not serve as any real standard of value or stable trading unit. Stability is impossible as the units are subjective/imaginary/illusionary. Read my prior missive on the issue of ‘consciousness’.

Judy’s article covers the basic history of why monetary integrity has been lost. Her books are well worth reading IMO. She seems to think that Mr. Trump may soon start to establish a universal set of rules which could eventually lead to real price/currency stability. She says that ‘Trump would do well to take the next step for the sake of free trade and to establish a system that ensures stable exchange rates’. The next step would need to be some type of gold/silver standard (I presume). The other option would be to establish the ‘Mark of the Beast’ monetary system (now in the works) which creates ONE global cyber currency for the planet…enslaving all of mankind!

What we have today is unworkable for the longer term. Cyber currencies must fluctuate/float as they are units of subjectivity/consciousness. Central bank manipulations are understandable given the ‘nature’ of these currencies. The bigger issues for discussion are the reasons why our system has evolved into its current formulations. Why did FDR change the American dollar concept back in 1933-34 to a fiat paper system? Why did our gold vanish via the Bretton Woods Agreement so that Mr. Nixon had to close the gold window in 1971? Why did Nixon/Kissinger establish the petro-dollar system to cover up this breakdown of Nixon’s closing of the gold window after 1973-74? Who invented these cyber currencies as viable alternatives to the ‘paper’ units?

The history of our manipulations and shenanigans reveal why our current system is broken. Read and study this history for wisdom and comprehension. Read my blog for some of this history. What we need now is wisdom and understanding on all these issues going forward. Sound money is essential for international trade. If we desire to create a better global society, however, we will also need to delve into the philosophical issues of economics (such as this ephemeral concept called ‘value’). Just what is this concept called ‘value’ and can any system work given its core ‘nature’? The issues are complex today and now is the time to start this discussion.

Our markets are now in a bubble stage as a result of years of Central bank manipulations and shenanigans. The current QE (quantitative easing) policies are just one of the corrupt issues which evolved as a result of our historical evolution in the dollar. Corruptions at the top are now ubiquitous and few comprehend what is happening as most decisions are concocted ‘behind closed doors’. A few select elites who operate our electronic/cyber computers (behind closed doors)…mostly to distort and manipulate our markets need to be exposed. We might start with individuals like Bernanke, Dudley, Draghi, Carney, Kuroda, Xiaochuan, King, Trichet, Ingves, Volcker, Caruana, Garcia, Frenkel, and the many others who have promoted all these corrupt policies.

Go to this website for some of the individuals behind all this corruption: http://group30.org/members. The other website is: https://www.bis.org. Central banks now control all our cyber currencies with their ‘behind the scenes’ computers and trading strategies. Our markets are now nearly 100% electronic/digital and all our currencies live within CYBERSPACE. Cyberspace is really not real (like observable space/time). Cyberspace is actually a ‘extension of my/your consciousness’. Wake-up to real-time reality as we live it folks. Our elites are promoting a ‘Mark of the Beast’ monetary system which is very corrupting for freedom, liberty, and prosperity! Think on this for today! I am: https://kingdomecon.wordpress.com.

The evolution of money is an interesting study. For Americans, much of our history started with Jamestown and the Plymouth Rock experiences. Capitalism was chosen at that time over the alternatives…Socialism and Communism. Today, we are back to a new beginning. The United Nations Agenda 2030 is promoting global Socialism/Communism for everyone. The elites are mostly promoting globalism and a global governance system. One central system governing all 7.5 billion citizens. Trump desires a return to some form of Capitalism (it seems). Our evolution, however, points in a different direction. Kingdom Economics is promoting this NEW DIRECTION! Check out my blog for details!

 

Trump’s Economic Trinity!

February 13, 2017

Image result for mnuchin, cohn, navarro

The above Trinity (Bannon, Mnuchin, Cohn) are prior Goldman Sachs loyalists!

Image result for mnuchin, cohn, navarro

Peter Navarro is my only hope as a sound thinker on economic issues!

Trumponomics will likely be determined by a Trinity of financial elites who work directly with the Donald in Washington D.C. to create economic policy. These three elites who have the ear of the Donald are: Gary Cohn, Steve Mnuchin, and Peter Navarro. Gary heads up the National Economic Council (located in the West Wing of the White House), Steve Mnuchin, Secretary of the Treasury, is located next door to the White House, and Peter Navarro, will head up the National Trade Council, located within the White House. This Trinity will likely battle for the ear of the Donald on all economic issues.

Later in 2017, the policy team will include the three-person Council of Economic Advisers, the Commerce secretary, and a U.S. Trade Representative. These elites are still being selected or confirmed. My sense is that the above Trinity, however, will deal with all the difficult issues which we will face in the coming months/years. The only person who I currently support as sound in his economic thinking is our new adviser for the National Trade Council, Mr. Peter Navarro. Peter’s thinking is basically sound IMO!

The mindset of Gary Cohn and Steve Mnuchin, both Goldman Sachs insiders do not have my confidence or support. Also Steve Bannon, who is Trump’s key policy adviser, has prior Goldman Sachs connections. His thinking is suspect! So is Wall Street well represented within our new Trump administration? I think so! The one solid voice of reason, based upon my review of Peter’s documentary called, ‘Death by China’, may be overshadowed by the Goldman Sachs team of insiders. We will need to watch what happens as events progress going forward.

Death by China is well worth watching IMO as this documentary covers trade policy thoroughly and fairly. As of today, our trade policy is in a mess and this area of economics is where events could get interesting in 2017. Watch ‘Death by China’ here: http://deathbychina.com/. The one area of economics which Peter does not cover, however, within this documentary is our corrupt cyber currencies and the cyber exchange rates. Peter seems to think that our currency units are physical ‘things’ which exist within time/space and this IMO is invalid thinking.

In reality, our cyber currencies are ‘imaginary’ units of consciousness (see my prior missive on the nature of ‘consciousness’ for details). Currency exchange rates float and fluctuate daily within our computer driven cyber markets. Cyberspace is the location of all our currencies today. These cyber currencies create confusing ‘beggar-thy-neighbor’ relationships which distort and manipulate trade transactions among trade counterparts. As exchange rates are manipulated UP and DOWN by our Central bank policy makers, trade is affected and it favors one country at the expense of another. This happens because we now live with ‘imaginary’ cyber currency units (globally).

My sense, as of today, is that the Trump economic Trinity will continue all the existing trade distortions and corrupt banking policies (now being practiced) as his team of advisers is missing a sound money person. The only real sound money person who has had the ear of the Donald in the past was Dr. Judy Shelton, who IMO has the real understanding of currency exchange rates and their need for some STANDARD of value to serve as a reference point for trade valuations. Judy is not being considered for a policy position as of now. This is unfortunate IMO!

Dr. Judy Shelton is an economist with expertise in global finance and monetary issues. She is Co-Director of the Sound Money Project at Atlas Network. Shelton is the author of Fixing the Dollar Now: Why US Money Lost Its Integrity and How We Can Restore It (2011), The Coming Soviet Crash (1989), Money Meltdown (1994), and “A Guide to Sound Money” (2010). Her international economics articles have been published by the Wall Street Journal, the New York Times, Washington Post, Financial Times, Nihon Keizai Shimbun, and El Economista. Shelton holds a Ph.D. in business administration from the University of Utah.

So as of today, I am very disappointed at the team of advisers which Mr. Trump has selected for his ‘ear’. Peter Navarro may not survive the tussle within the White House (from Goldman insiders) and without a sound money person like Dr. Judy Shelton, we will likely see our DEBT continue to go UP and UP. Our National Deficits will continue to go UP and UP. Currency exchange rates will have NO reference point for valuation of trade and our Central bank policies of manipulation and distortion will continue. Where is the real change in policy thinking? I see more of the same and no real meaningful change going forward. This is unfortunate!

We might witness some ‘black swan’ event emerging on the international scene to change current thinking and trends. What might this be? Russia and her advisers could offer hope for change. China may demand a sound money alternative to the dollar. The index markets (now all electronic) could create a change in confidence as the bubbles continue to grow. We live with a HOUSE OF CARDS for our economic system and the one sound website which reveals this reality is: http://www.usdebtclock.org. So watch this website daily as we move forward under the TRUMP TRINITY! Enjoy! I am: https://kingdomecon.wordpress.com.
