NSA Inks Landmark Deal to Share Information With Central Banks / Politics / Central Banks

By: David_Hague

Dear reader put away your charts and graphs. Forget about fundamental and technical analysis. Ignore financial statements and trends. The extraordinary agreement to share information between the National Security Agency [NSA], a host of European, Russian, Canadian and Chinese spy agencies and the world's Central Banks will ensure that the only relevant force in Global Stock markets will be the trading activity of the world's Central Banks. Thanks to the data gathering of the NSA and its subsidiary spy agencies around the world, the Central Banks will be privy to the most confidential conversations and communications from the boardroom, the bedroom and the trading floor. Central Banks will now be able to trade with inside information that could only be dreamed about in years gone by.

Code Red - Central Bankers Gone Wild / Interest-Rates / Central Banks

By: John_Mauldin

I wasn't the only person coming out with a book this week (much more on that at the end of the letter). Alan Greenspan hit the street with The Map and the Territory. Greenspan left Bernanke and Yellen a map, all right, but in many ways the Fed (along with central banks worldwide) proceeded to throw the map away and march off into totally unexplored territory. Under pressure since the Great Recession hit in 2007, they abandoned traditional monetary policy principles in favor of a new direction: print, buy, and hope that growth will follow. If aggressive asset purchases fail to promote growth, Chairman Bernanke and his disciples (soon to be Janet Yellen and the boys) respond by upping the pace. That was appropriate in 2008 and 2009 and maybe even in 2010, but not today.

The Biggest Race to Print Paper Money in History? / Currencies / Central Banks

By: Profit_Confidential

Michael Lombardi writes: Many central banks within the global economy are involved in printing more of their paper money (often referred to as “fiat” currencies). There’s a race to devalue currencies in hopes to revive economies and maintain a competitive stance. Countries believe that by printing more of their fiat currency, they can improve their exports to the global economy, because the goods will be cheaper for those countries that have a stronger currency.

This should not surprise anyone, as the current state of our global economy and the behavior of central bankers can only be discussed by those who have a strong constitution and an appetite for the surreal.

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Mervyn King delivered his last Bank of England Quarterly Inflation economic propaganda report as he is due to make away for the Canadian Central Bank governor Mark Carney in June. His final message was one of economic optimism in terms of forecasting stronger economic growth going forward of 2% in 2 years time.

"There is a welcome change in the econ comic outlook, today's projections are for growth to be a little strong and for inflation to be a little weaker than we expected 3 months ago, that is the first time I have been able to say that since before the financial crisis"

Oh the people's flag is deepest red, just like the government's budget...

AS MAY DAY protests go, the US central bank's looked pretty tame on Wednesday.

Athens' strikers burnt a giant picture of Angela Merkel dressed as Hitler. Students in Washington threw bags of urine at each other. Protesters in Madrid waved flags shouting that "Austerity ruins & kills", while Turkish police broke up an illegal demo with tear gas and water cannon.

The Fed Responsible for Grandest Larceny of All Time / Politics / Central Banks

By: Bill_Bonner

Gold seems to be coming back fast. It rose $38 per ounce yesterday.

Of course, the Fed's monetary meddling doesn't work. And it will most likely cause a financial disaster.

But the biggest scandal of today's central bank policy is that it is essentially the grandest larceny of all time.

From Subprime Crisis to QE3 the Federal Reserve has Failed America / Politics / Central Banks

By: Richard_Mills

Alan Greenspan was chairman of the Federal Reserve from 1987 to early 2006. Greenspan used monetary policy to ignite one of the longest economic booms in history. Of course booms can soon turn to bust and nowhere was the boom more evident than in the housing industry - the sub-prime crisis collapsed the housing boom just after Greenspan left the Fed.

Sub-Prime Crisis

"The banking problems of the '80s and '90s came primarily, but not exclusively, from unsound real estate lending." L. William Seidman, former chairman of both the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) and the Resolution Trust Corporation

How Alan Greenspan Enriched Wall Street and Left a Legacy of Recession / Politics / Central Banks

By: Fred_Sheehan

I thank Fan Zhiqiang for his decision to translate Panderer to Power. His great attention to detail in asking me to explain dozens of phrases and terms for a Chinese audience reminded me of how the book concentrates on the United States. The influence of Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan's actions spread around the world. It would have been a much longer book, though, if I wrote of how United States' policy influenced China (for example), other than writing of it in reference to the United States.

Cyprus and the Unraveling of Fractional-Reserve Banking / Interest-Rates / Central Banks

By: Joseph_T_Salerno

The “Cyprus deal” as it has been widely referred to in the media may mark the next to last act in the the slow motion collapse of fractional-reserve banking that began with the implosion of the savings-and-loan industry in the U.S. in the late 1980s.

This trend continued with the currency crises in Russia, Mexico, East Asia, and Argentina in the 1990s in which fractional-reserve banking played a decisive role. The unraveling of fractional-reserve banking became visible even to the average depositor during the financial meltdown of 2008 that ignited bank runs on some of the largest and most venerable financial institutions in the world. The final collapse was only averted by the multi-trillion dollar bailout of U.S. and foreign banks by the Federal Reserve.

Is the Fed Guilty of Treason? / Politics / Central Banks

By: Brian_Bloom

An important  issue that the gold lobby has raised  in the past (regarding the application of Article 1, Section 8 of the US Constitution), gave rise to a court decision that any complainant who wished to challenge the relationship of the Fed and the US Government had to have locus standi in judicio. Apparently, the reason for this was that, because of the fact that Congress must approve borrowing limits of the Federal Government, and because of the double sided bookkeeping entry that clearly links new treasury bond issuance with money creation, it was (at that time) a fact that Congress was ultimately in control of the country’s  money supply. Theoretically, if Congress had refused to raise the Sovereign borrowing limit then that would have put a stop to the Fed’s money creation.

Cyprus Lifts the Curtain on Central Banking / Politics / Central Banks

By: Peter_Schiff

This week financial analysts, economists, politicians, and bank depositors from around the world were outraged that European leaders, more specifically the Germans, currently calling many of the shots in Brussels and Frankfurt, could be so politically reckless, economically ignorant, and emotionally callous as to violate the sanctity of bank deposits in order to fund a bailout of Cyprus. The chorus of condemnation may have been the deciding factor in giving the Cypriot parliament the confidence to unanimously vote down the measures in hopes that Berlin will cave or Russia will swoop in with a bailout.

How the Fed Could Fix the Economy—and Why It Hasn’t / Politics / Central Banks

By: Ellen_Brown

Quantitative easing (QE) is supposed to stimulate the economy by adding money to the money supply, increasing demand. But so far, it hasn’t been working. Why not? Because as practiced for the last two decades, QE does not actually increase the circulating money supply. It merely cleans up the toxic balance sheets of banks. A real “helicopter drop” that puts money into the pockets of consumers and businesses has not yet been tried. Why not?  Another good question . . . .

Lords of Finance: The Backroom World of Central Banking / Politics / Central Banks

By: Dan_OConnor

Lords of Finance: The Bankers Who Broke the World • Liaquat Ahamed • Penguin Books, 2009

The Pulitzer Prize-winning book Lords of Finance: The Bankers Who Broke the World reveals the destructive, surreptitious, incestuous, and highly corrupt nature of central banking. Although the author, Liaquat Ahamed, exposes the current financial system for all of its evils, this book is by no means a critique of central banking. Ahamed’s views are very much representative of status-quo economists of the past 100 years. He references John Maynard Keynes frequently without mentioning Nobel Prize-winner F.A. Hayek once, even though Hayek was Keynes’s greatest intellectual opponent during this period. Despite its mainstream focus the book is interesting and well-written. One of the jewels here is the rare look into the lives of the powerful men, the “lords of finance,” who were behind the solidification of modern central banking in the US and Europe during the years 1910 to 1935.

By: Jan_Skoyles

The Trial of the Pyx, perhaps one of the oldest legal events in Great Britain, took place earlier this week.

Since 1282, the Trial of the Pyx, which is a full judicial trial, has taken place every year in order to check the integrity of new coins produced by the Royal Mint.

Taking place at the Goldsmith’s Hall in the City of London, the trial is done in three-stages and involves a jury of goldsmiths counting and weighing the new coins which are transported in the Pyx, Latin for ‘chest’.

Fractional Reserve Banking is not responsible for the bad practice of 'creating money', writes Paul Tustain, founder and CEO of BullionVault.

It is a speed limit on money creation, put in place by a Central Bank to stop banks doing too much of what comes naturally to them.

Think about one of those movie scenes when the leading man does all he can to defeat the big, bad enemy -- punches, kicks, slams, stabs, shoots -- but the bad guy just won't go down. In fact he doesn't even look fazed.

That's when the protagonist really starts to worry.

Monetary Malpractice: Deceptions, Distortions & Delusions / Politics / Central Banks

By: Gordon_T_Long

The Hippocratic Oath is an oath taken by physicians swearing to practice medicine ethically, honestly and above all, to do no harm to the patient. Unelected central bankers do not take such an oath. They do however swear allegiance to the Constitution.

On February 6, 2006, Ben Bernanke took an oath to the Constitution at his swearing-in ceremony as Chairman of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System. The significance of this is that as a federal officer, despite being the front man for a privately owned, quasi government bank, he can be prosecuted for any violations of the Constitution that he swore to uphold.
