IMF Buys Ukrainian Sovereignty For 15 Billion Euros

As we reported yesterday, the International Monetary Fund (IMF) has approved a 15.5 billion euros bailout for the government of Ukraine. While Petro Poroshenko was busy meeting with Angela Merkel, Fraçois Hollande and Vladimir Putin in Minsk, the president of the International Monetary Fund, Christine Lagarde, announced the new financial assistance package to Kiev in


Failing Stimulus And The IMF's New 'Multilateral' World Order

My theme for 2015 has been the assertion that this will be a year of shattered illusions; social, political, as well as economic. As I have noted in recent articles, 2014 set the stage for multiple engineered conflicts, including the false conflict between Eastern and Western financial and political powers, as well as the growing


The IMF Worsened The African Ebola Crisis

Science does not know why the current outbreak of Ebola is so durable and deadly. Perhaps the explanation is not in medicine, otherwise in the economy. GREAT BRITAIN – An analysis of the austerity policies imposed by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) in the most affected countries shows that their national health systems were being


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 Now Ready To Slam The Door On The U.S. And The Dollar

As I write this, the news is saturated with stories of a hostage situation possibly involving Islamic militants in Sydney, Australia. Like many, I am concerned about the shockwave such an event will create through our sociopolitical structures. However, while most of the world will be distracted by the outcome of this crisis (for good


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,
