Impact Of IMF SDRs For Commercial Trade

The global corporatist economy works differently from business transactions at your neighborhood convenience store. Ostensibly, the International Monetary Fund was set up to allow the G20 nations to umpire the ground rules to play nice in macro trade. Platitudes about promoting job growth or third world development are the realm of public relations for the central banks. The impact


G20 And BRICS Great Schism

Global trade relationships and agreements are moving in very different directions. The public relations press releases hide the undercurrents that are driving the formations of alternative economic alliances. While the G 20, markets its all inclusive umbrella policy forums, the mere formation of a BRICS counterweight forecasts deep and fundamental differences. So what is really


Stealing Your Wealth By Stealth

Last year, I was roundly criticized when I said the Cyprus scenario is coming here. I was told there would be a revolution if this happened and the government would be too afraid to try such a thing. I marvel at people who hold to such naive beliefs. The American people have been through several


The Economic End Game Explained

Throughout history, in most cases of economic collapse the societies in question believed they were financially invincible just before their disastrous fall. Rarely does anyone see the edge of the cliff or even the bottom of the abyss before it has swallowed a nation whole. This lack of foresight, however, is not entirely the fault


Order Out Of Chaos: The Doctrine That Runs The World

“From the days of Spartacus-Weishaupt to those of Karl Marx, and down to Trotsky (Russia), Bela Kun (Hungary), Rosa Luxembourg (Germany), and Emma Goldman (United States), this world-wide conspiracy for the overthrow of civilization and for the reconstitution of society on the basis of arrested development, of envious malevolence, and impossible equality, has been steadily


IMF Energy Carbon Tax

Well, the International Monetary Fund is at it again. It looks like controlling entire economy conditions of nations is not enough for the IMF. The IMF urges higher energy taxes to fight climate change and lays out "exactly what it views as appropriate taxes on coal, natural gas, gasoline and diesel in 156 countries to factor in


IMF Lowers Expectations Of American Economic Growth

Still under the impact of a harsh winter, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) estimates that the U.S. economy will grow no more than 2% over 2014. The organization’s previous estimate was 2.7%. This latest report, released Monday, even downgrades forecasts for the Federal Reserve, and highlights structural weaknesses in the largest economy in the world


The New World Order And The Rise Of The East

“Actually, as Winston well knew, it was only four years since Oceania had been at war with Eastasia and in alliance with Eurasia. But that was merely a piece of furtive knowledge, which he happened to possess because his memory was not satisfactorily under control. Officially the change of partners had never happened. Oceania was


Who Is The New Secret Buyer Of U.S. Debt?

On the surface, the economic atmosphere of the U.S. has appeared rather calm and uneventful. Stocks are up, employment isn’t great but jobs aren’t collapsing into the void (at least not openly), and the U.S. dollar seems to be going strong. Peel away the thin veneer, however, and a different financial horror show is revealed.


False East/West Paradigm Hides The Rise Of Global Currency

Despite popular belief, very few things in our world are exactly what they seem. That which is painted as righteous is often evil. That which is painted as kind is often malicious. That which is painted as simple is often complex. That which is painted as complex often ends up being disturbingly two dimensional. Regardless,


Ukraine: 17 Billion Reasons To Doubt It Is About Democracy

The IMF Executive Board (IMF) has formally adopted a two-year ‘financial assistance’ program to Ukraine worth 17,000 million. With this decision, the IMF and the western powers have given the green light to begin acquiring the country’s assets in a number of steps and through compliance to certain globalist banking rules that are pre-established by


Russia Is Dominated By Global Banks, Too

Numerous cultures have had holidays dedicated to the celebration of pulling the wool over the eyes of others, from the ancient Romans, to early Muslims, to medieval Christians, to Americans and Europeans today.  As April begins, we once again turn a mischievous eye to the concept of the fool and, as always, each person seeks to be


IMF “Shock Treatment” For Ukraine: Collapse Of The Standard Of Living

On March 27, Ukraine’s interim coalition government announced concrete policy measures as part of its agreement with the IMF: a 50 percent increase of the retail price of gas coupled with the deregulation of the foreign exchange market. The hike in gas prices is required by the IMF as part of an 18 Billion dollar pledge,


Plundering Ukraine For Profit

On March 27, an IMF press release headlined "IMF Staff Level Agreement with Ukraine on US $14 - 18 billion Stand-By Arrangement." Nikolay Gueorguiev is IMF Mission Chief for Ukraine. He's loan shark chief in charge of plundering it for profit. He issued a statement, saying in part: "The mission has reached a staff-level agreement with


EU-Ukraine Trade Deal Paves The Way For Brutal Economic Austerity. IMF To Apply “The Greek Model”

Amid intensifying US and European Union sanctions and military provocations against Russia, the EU and the Western-backed government in Ukraine signed a pact that paves the way for brutal austerity measures and free market “reforms.” The EU-Ukraine Association Agreement is based on the deal that former President Viktor Yanukovych’s Ukrainian government rejected, leading to the
