The End of Global Banking Misery?
Unemployment is a global problem ... In South Africa this summer for the Global Forum hosted by Fortune, Time, and CNN in Cape Town, I was in a car driving northwest from Johannesburg in the pale winter sun, marveling at an endless landscape, when we suddenly came across what can only be described as a rural slum. It was the sort of place into which African workers had been cruelly decanted under the apartheid regime: row upon row of tin shacks, a few miserable roadside markets, kids trying to flag us down to sell soccer scarves and oranges. We didn't stop. It was a reminder that amid all the optimism about South Africa's prospects – and the justified plaudits for its hosting of soccer's World Cup – the nation has deep structural problems. The official unemployment rate is 25%; in North West province, where we were driving, only 35% of the working-age population has a job. Even allowing for a significant informal economy, those are staggering numbers. Little wonder that South African officials say weak "labor absorption" (a fancy way of saying growth is not generating enough jobs) is their key economic challenge. – Fortune
Dominant Social Theme: The West needs to try harder.
Free-Market Analysis: Western command-and-control systems are worldwide now. In fact, of course, this is a dominant social theme: "The West's economic perspective is a global one because of its efficiency and it is necessary to deal with it in a global way."
We disagree with this perspective. While the West may have a dominant economic model, this does not mean from our point of view that it is the best one or the only one. The West's model seems based on the discovery by a shadowy, ruling elite that they can print unlimited amounts of money and force other cultures to accept that system at the point of a metaphorical gun.
We can see this process at work in Iraq and Afghanistan. In both countries the Anglo-American elite has seemingly orchestrated invasions based on confronting the terror-purveyors that caused 9/11. Yet there is no direct evidence (that we know of) that either Iraq or Afghanistan were substantively involved in 9/11, while most of those that the FBI accused of taking part were Saudi Arabians.
It seems to us that the reasons for invading Iraq and Afghanistan were flimsy. But what has taken place in these countries since then is not at all flimsy. The Anglo-American axis and NATO have attacked hard, have reconfigured the sociopolitical fabric of these two countries and most importantly are in the midst of installing huge armies in both countries. The political establishment is dependent in both cases on these armies, which is one reason why the Western press itself can run so many articles about high level politicos begging Western troops not to leave.
In any event, along with installing a compliant bureaucracy and an army to support it, Western powers inevitably install the West's mercantilist central banking system as well. Both Afghanistan and Iraq will emerge (if the West has its way) from the violent process with mini-Anglo-American cultures. Women will be empowered (to work long hours away from the children); a federal income tax will be levied to fund the various corrupt practices of the central government and its patronage mechanism; and, finally and most importantly, a central bank will begin to spew money at the behest of the BIS, IMF and other Anglo-America financial authorities.
This is how the Anglo-American dollar reserve currency has taken hold. The dollar became widespread after the devastation of World War II and subsequent Anglo-American-designed Bretton Woods agreement. Since then, with various setbacks, it has been propagated via still more violence and nation-state destabilization. Installing the dollar around the world is one mechanism that the Anglo-American elite has used to gain a global advantage. But Bretton Woods itself designed a global infrastructure that the Anglo-American elite has put to good use.
The chief driving economic mechanism of the Western elite is the mercantilist, fiat-money central bank. The booms and busts of this enterprise drive Western economies toward fuller employment but then, during busts, create significant unemployment. In fact, the current Great Recession is not just another hiccup on the way to a gigantic, global recovery but a fundamental failure of the dollar-reserve fiat currency that the power elite has promoted for over a century. The result of this failure has in a sense bankrupted the citizenry of the West, the banking establishment itself and now, as the Great Recession unrolls, governments too.
How did this happen? When (fairly modern) central banks successfully penetrated the West at least 100 years ago, the great distortion of money and the economy began. We have written of this in the past and called it "Dreamtime." When vast money flows surge into the economy, people begin to believe they can have anything they want. They put money in the stock market, sell their generational farms, buy urban houses and change jobs. But then the money flows out and stocks go down, houses are forfeit, jobs are lost and suddenly even food is problem.
Sometimes the central bank can reflate but often it cannot do so, or not enough to prevent a contraction of the economy. And thus, like a boa constrictor, in stages, the central banking economy swallows the private economy. The banking sector itself, midwife to the central bank, waxes fat on the larger misfortune. The economy is continually centralized. Money and power flow to those who stand in the shadows behind the central banks and the Swiss-based BIS. Only certain elite-affiliated corporations thrive and every time there is a downturn more and more jobs are lost and government is empowered.
Ideally, from an elite point of view, this process might have continued until it forced a kind of inevitable global centralization of employment, property and authority. But as we continually point out, the Internet has come along and interrupted the various promotions that have surrounded the central banking mechanism and confused the reality of its destructive grasp. More and more "get it" – and as they do, the mechanism itself is increasingly paralyzed. Bold steps cannot be taken because the distrust and anger are too high.
What is left today after a century of Western economic depredations and globalization of the mercantilist central banking/dollar denominated economy? It has not likely proved an adequate substitute for what came before. There may have been poverty in tribal Africa but one has trouble believing that 70 percent of the African workforce had no way of finding sustenance. The European and American unemployment rates supposedly stand at 10 percent – but those numbers can easily be doubled as bureaucracies always lie about unemployment statistics. And certainly as the Great Recession drags on, these numbers may go up further.
The problem with central banking is that it leaves ruin wherever it goes. Currently, China is enjoying a boom and the central banking system there is being presented as a success. It is not. Eventually the hyper-stimulation of paper money that has produced so much growth will wane and the Chinese will emerge, blinking and bawling into the dawn of a new and far more painful reality. This is the fate of all who are exposed to mercantilist central banking economies. It has nothing to do with race or intelligence or industriousness. Central banking lifts economies up, then sets them back down, bleeding and wounded. In the process, more and more are "unemployed" and more "jobs are not coming back."
It is a cruel hoax. "Change" becomes the watchword because of the "creative destruction" of fiat money. Society is tortured. Parents can leave little or nothing to their children. Financial reversals are commonplace. Money loses values and then the pain is compounded by money scarcity and high interest rates that bankrupt even more. Central banking does not support employment or civil society. It is in fact an UNEMPLOYMENT system. It is an INFLATION manufacturing system. It is profoundly disruptive.
It is fortunate in our view that the Internet came along when it did to explain the system more fully to an ever-widening audience. We would tend to believe that the system's fiat-banking globalization will go a good deal more slowly as a result. We have predicted a return of some sort of gold standard – or more hopefully a private gold and silver standard. We have noticed lately there is much more chatter about such an occurrence and that the Federal Reserve apparently has some contingency plans along these lines.
Conclusion: We have been writing such things for more than a decade now and predicting their occurrence because of the inevitable degradation of elite memes. It is happening in our view even faster than we expected due to a combination of the current economic collapse and the availability of Internet information. We would tend to believe these trends, which are like great sluggish currents, will not be easily reversed and that the power elite will be forced to step back as it has before.

This is a copy of the email I received.
Dear Friend of Liberty,
The best way to know you are succeeding in changing Washington is when you get attacked by the FEC.
And attack us they have!
I'm writing you this letter today not to scare you or to cry wolf. I'm writing to let you know that our success has its price, and that price right now is the wrath of the Obama Administration and its attack dogs at the Federal Election Commission.
I urge you to read this message and then sign the Declaration of Support (in which I ask for your advice on a critical legal and moral question), as we are forced into battle with federal agencies and courts.
You see, this isn't theoretical. They've already come after us in multiple cases, alleging that Campaign for Liberty has acted illegally merely by putting the candidates on the record and reporting their positions.
My attorneys tell me we are under a gag rule and cannot go in to too many details or even tell you with what we have been charged and where the charges originated.
But I can say there have been at least two complaints filed in two different states against our issue discussion activities.
They claim we are in violation of various FEC rules and laws.
Their allegations are completely false. And we must fight back now, or they will win and be able to silence our movement.
You see, the Washington, D.C. establishment doesn't like to be challenged. They hate it when we fight back.
They are absolutely BESIDE themselves when we are winning.
In less than 2 years, your Campaign for Liberty has become a major force on the American political landscape.
I can give you a list of our accomplishments, talk about our growth (we are approaching half a million members), and show you press coverage from across the nation on our efforts.
But nothing shows our success more than how our enemies react when challenged.
When that happens, they do what they do best: use the power of the federal government to attack us.
They want to do one of two things: shut us up, or shut us down.
This battle is over a very fundamental idea " that Campaign for Liberty and our members should have a voice in lobbying their legislators and exposing the radical views of candidates for office.
Exposing what they're up to " that's what the powers that be can't stand. That's because they don't want Americans to know:
** Congress is spending at a record pace and has now left us over 13 TRILLION dollars in debt, with no end in sight.
** The out of control FED has not accounted for nearly 2 trillion dollars and has doubled our monetary base, risking our entire economy.
** The federal government has imposed a mandate that every American either purchase a health care product the Feds approve of, costing tens of thousands of dollars, or risk fines and jail
** The federal government has attempted to take away your 1st, 2nd and 4th Amendment rights, all in the past year, with more certainly to come.
We're exposing them " and holding them accountable as they come back home to seek reelection.
Of course, this may not sound like the end of the world. But just think: the FEC has an ARMY of lawyers and a budget of nearly $70 MILLION dollars. That's a lot of lawyers.
And add to it the fact that this group of people is adamantly against free speech under the First Amendment, and well, you have a recipe for trouble
Subpeonas. Depositions. Fishing expeditions that cover tens of thousands of documents.
Legal fees just to defend our right to free speech.
Thousands of hours of staff time to comply with their demands.
You can see where this is going.
If FEC radicals succeed, I will not even be allowed to tell you and your neighbors how candidates for the House and Senate (or for President in the future) have voted on Liberty issues, so you can put the heat on them when they are most likely to listen.
Let me explain that a bit more.
For the first time ever, there is a nationwide group that is dedicated to holding politicians accountable for their votes on Liberty issues.
It's Campaign for Liberty, and our over 450,000 members are doing battle across the country to hold the politicians' feet to the fire.
Whether it is getting more than 300 sponsors for Audit the Fed, or lobbying to stop Cap and Tax and Real ID schemes, Campaign for Liberty is making a difference.
And we're prepared to make an even bigger difference this fall, as the time comes to inform the people where their candidates stand.
So the statists in Washington are out to make sure that doesn't happen.
Their main weapon is the Federal Election Commission.
The FEC has always been against free speech and a tool of the powerful elite in Washington, who desperately seek to hang on to power.
But as bad as the FEC has been since its inception, with the Obama Administration in power, you and I face even more aggressive assaults on our free speech.
My attorneys have warned me that the puppets at the Federal Election Commission are ordering me to stop mobilizing hundreds of thousands of Americans against power grabs in Congress.
In doing so, they are trying to cripple our ability to stop dangerous legislation in Congress. If we continue to oppose these Liberty-stealing bills as we have in the past, I face the danger of multimillion-dollar fines and even a jail term!
In fact, I may even be questioned in court for writing this letter tonight.
I must make a decision soon. Should I allow the Federal Election Commission to tie my hands during this crucial election year?
Or should I defy their gag-rule regulations . . . and face prosecution from the out of control federal authorities for exercising our right to political speech?
So please consider making a generous contribution " even if you can only afford to chip in $10 " to help Campaign for Liberty continue this fight.
The fact is the enemies of Liberty are preparing for a political attack far more serious than their election power grab of 2008, in which they put in power some of the biggest enemies of freedom and promoters of Big Government in a generation.
Our program to stop more statist takeovers in Congress is simple. By mobilizing our grassroots army, we can put a lot of heat on individual Congressmen and Senators.
The FEC insists we can't do that during election years.
They say by telling you where your Congressman and Senators stand, I may influence your vote. The FEC election regulators contend that's illegal electioneering.
Basically, government bureaucrats and their out of control regulations insist I dismantle our lobbying operation during election years -- precisely at the time it would have its greatest impact.
Top legal experts tell me that this harassment by the FEC and any attempts to shut down our program violate several decisions by the U.S. Supreme Court and are flatly unconstitutional.
But they also warn me that if I challenge the FEC ruling, I may face a huge, tax-funded lawsuit which could stretch on for decades and cost us as much as a million dollars.
In addition to potential million-dollar fines and legal penalties, I also face an enormous funding challenge.
Our program to fight back in Congress will require at least $3.2 million.
So there are a lot of decisions to make, and I wanted to be sure I have your support as we move forward.
If I am to proceed with this effort (which I am hoping you will allow), I will need more than just your authorization. I will need your financial support as well.
Please fill out your Declaration of Support, and consider making a generous contribution " even if you can only afford to chip in $10 " to help Campaign for Liberty continue this fight.
Thank you for all you do for Liberty.

I totally agree with you Gene Clark, Victor Barney makes no sense whatsoever. I want to thank The Daily Bell for a great article. I learned a lot from it. I hope you are right that things will turn around and we will come out of this mess. But I really have my doubts. We have gone too far down this road and the man in the White House is pushing things way too fast. He is trying to get things pasted before the elections in November. Have you seen what is happening to Ron Paul's Campaign for Liberty?

If the present rate of industrial expansion continues it is estimated that Earth has approximately 70 years left beore all resources are depleted. I wonder what the market will be like then, provided if there is indeed a market. Or if what is left will belong to the surviving military industrial complex?

"one still has to buy the sword of change or make it thierselves."
I have the sword Ralph. I made it myself. I haven't met anyone with enough money to buy it.
Can you give someone freedom? I would say no, you cannot. A gift carries debt with it and so a person who receives the gift can never be free of debt, and so can never be free. You cannot give someone freedom. It is literally impossible.

You know, you guys are brilliant, and I mean that sincerely. Take for example your analysis of the Iraq/Afghanistan tragedy:
"In any event, along with installing a compliant bureaucracy and an army to support it, Western powers inevitably install the West's mercantilist central banking system as well. Both Afghanistan and Iraq will emerge (if the West has its way) from the violent process with mini-Anglo-American cultures. Women will be empowered (to work long hours away from the children); a federal income tax will be levied to fund the various corrupt practices of the central government and its patronage mechanism; and, finally and most importantly, a central bank will begin to spew money at the behest of the BIS, IMF and other Anglo-America financial authorities."
You won't see that analysis anywhere in the broadcast organs of the power centers. What is truly heartbreaking is the fact that so few political leaders have the understanding that you have regarding central banking, income taxes, or the corrupt patronage that seems to be inherent even in "democratic" centralized governments.
One can only hope that a variant of Pareto's Law holds, and that perhaps when this understanding infects 20% of the population positive changes will occur spontaneously and without much chaos or violence.
Reply from The Daily Bell
Well, thank you Acudoc, you are very good yourself. We believe that those in the topmost rungs of power understand absolutely what they have put in place and, in fact, understand a good deal more about it than we do - or even you (though you have contributed some very fine analyses we have noticed).
But we also believe, as we here at the Bell are not brilliant by any stretch, that if we "get it" - thanks to the Internet - others do to. Ten years ago when we first started writing on these issues and elite meme degradation our articles made narry a ripple. Now we see growing awareness (certainly we are not alone in these ideas) because in just 10 year's time, reality has begun to prove such perceptions. It doesn't take 20 percent. Only one or two percent who spread the word. This is an inevitability of a sort. Times are changing. The Internet is not a "crisis" for the power elite but a venue of systemic change that will run its course much as the Gutenberg press did.

I know there wasn't room here, but one of the worst things of the banking cartel (in my view) is its disruptive effect on the pricing of goods and services. For medical care out of pocket, you can practically forget about it. (In the system, you can afford it, but at a high monthly cost.) You can buy a car (with some usury attached via loan schemes), but parts and services are tough. Go to Home Depot and try to build a shed--it's a fortune. Only mass production efficiencies of electronics and food (owing to the agro-cartel) lead to some reasonable pricing, but with food you have to eat off the assembly line (with some risk and lower quality). There are price disparities everywhere, some affordable and others not, but seemingly nonsensical in any case. In the Federal Reserve system, one of the advertised roles is to control price inflation...that's a joke. And there's a coming wake of destruction, I believe, as the rigged system falls apart strand by strand.

The activities of the international banking syndicates are expressions, albeit grave, of the underlying central illness that has gripped humanity since people began forming groups to plunder and oppress other human beings for their sometimes obvious, sometimes not so obvious benefit. Pertinent to this DB staff report, it would clarify to see that government monopoly over the medium of exchange together with fractional reserve banking is nothing but warfare by extortion, enabling banking as we know it to exist. There is no voluntary aspect to this incarceration without walls.

In answer to the Fortune quote, there are two things that the writer failed to note or never dug deep enough to understand.
First, apartheid was wrong, but the flow of immigrants from the north, east and west was as heavy and illegal as we experence coming into the US. These people were coming to South Africa because, even though apartheid was in full swing, South Africa was a much better place to be than the countries they were coming from. After the demise of apartheid, this illegal flow continued adding to the already large unemployment rate.
Secondly, the climate in South Africa is such that little is needed to survive the weather and the people could get by on little for shelter making it easy to get by, but not necessaryly making a beautiful landscape.
If the Fortune writer had stopped and ask questions he probably would have learned more about the situation in South Africa. South Africa is very different than most of Africa and is modern and Westernized and not in a negitive way.

"As we automate production, fewer and fewer workers are needed"
You missed "in some fields." Innovations will create new fields needing new workers. Agribusiness will find that intensive agriculture works better...the big farms will give way again to small farmers. I can think of several other scenarios where your "too many mouths" thesis could fall apart.
Posted by Bill on 08/26/10 12:09 PM
The ONLY constant is Change. The pre-industrial style of bartering and trade will not guarantee employment unless society collapses or regresses to that point. As we automate production, fewer and fewer workers are needed. The private non-goods sector providing services can only divide the available work so far without creating the subsistence markets we see all over developing countries.
My community cannot support 100 lawyers, doctors, beauticians,barbers,massage therapists,or vegetable stand businesses.
At some point we need to regulate population, and plan for the fact we cannot provide full employment without using tax subsidies to pay for created work such as "security watchers, public service workers etc. China owns its central bank-it is NOT privately owned. China did not borrow to provide its stimulus. John F. Kennedy issued an executive order in June 1963 aimed at keeping the Privately owned central bank from Charging the US government interest on loans. This may have sealed his doom. I would actually advocate a 24 hour work week in certain sectors and run the week 6 days long.
Reply from The Daily Bell
This is nonsensical. If the economy grew naturally (versus fiat stimulation) how could there be massive unemployment? People would not be fooled by booms and busts and would make rational choices - even subsistence farming is better than starving in a slum.
And what is your solution? You defend the communist-oriented state bank of China! China, a country 50 years removed from starving millions of its own. And then you argue for a shorter work week as if current economic problems stem from people working too hard.
The problem is malinvestment and people being tricked by fiat booms into taking jobs that are ultimately meaningless and cannot last. As a Brownian, you may have a hard time with this analysis.

Great post George H. on i.e. re:"The reasons for the destruction of the family unit was to get total control of the children by making mothers dependent on government services."
Right on!!! This Communist(Marxist and Anti-Messiah) takeover of the real "Israel," America, the name given though the seed of Joseph(Gen. 48:16), not Judah, who was given only grace, not race(irony?) has been going on since at Least Teddy Roosevelt and Wilson. Did I tell you that we were also forbidden from putting a forbidden foreigner(Deut. 17:15) over us, which our women have done? Some things have not changed in nearly 6,000 years, the age of man, have they?

That's new face of eugenics... People think that Margret Sanger was so great for creating Planned Parenthood when in reality, it was her way of thinning out the herd.. mainly blacks.. This is where Hitler learned eugenics and we know what he did.. Woodrow Wilson introduced segregation back into society also.. People need to learn real history instead of the Progressive distorted version...

Your point is strengthened when one compares the fiat money, central banking system of the last nine decades with the gold standard, redeemable currency system of the second half of the 19th Century.
Worldwide trade in nominal terms in 1890 under a gold standard was of a volume and size which was not exceeded until 1990, a hundred years later. Relative worldwide peace prevailed during this period. Fortyseven of the most advanced countries did not even require visa or passports for travel.
There is no doubt that the gold standard was undermined by the big money center banks in America and Britain at the beginning of the 20th Century, resulting in the destruction of the "Real Bills" market and the redeemable currency system. This extremely successful monetary system was replaced with the "Ponzi Scheme" of a central banking system. The central banking system proved ineffective to emerge from a worldwide depression in the 1930s. It took the confligration of WW II to launch the "consumer economy" which thrives on the constant monetization of debt. Debt to pay for the Cold War, the Korean War, the "War on Poverty", the Vietnam War, etc., etc....until the "War on Terror".
However, like any "Ponzi Scheme" there comes an end when those engaged in it or effected by it no longer believe that the scheme is viable.
For the "Ponzi Scheme" of central banking the end is near, as the upside down pyramid it built is about to topple. Let's hope that the enlightenment, gained thanks to the internet, will be sufficient to prevent a future large confligration to mask the work of the central banking monetary elites.

Hate to be redundant, but you guys absolutely are the best News & Analysis ever, if not the only one! About today's Dominant Social Theme: The West needs to try harder; I would like to add that in the Hebrew Scripture man's answer will be the "cashless society" and without the "mark" of the beast, nobody in the west at least can buy or sell without it! This really makes sense to me now! Did I mention that a week from today is the "Hebrew"(Zeph. 3;9-"The only spiritually inspired language," not Greek, Latin or even English) is the Feast of Trumpets or "war"(September 9th)? I say this because "Israel" is "America" by the seed of Joseph, not Judah, promised "grace," not race(irony), as Joseph's seed! In case you still do not believe me, ONLY "scientific deduction"(Thank you, "Eliyah," who must come first, to me, this is Gary Miller, International Congregation of Yahweh, P.O. Box 208, Pocachontas, AR 72455) must be used when reading the Bible and nothing else! Did I also mention that two-weeks from today is the Hebrew Feast of Trumpets(war)? I say this because it looks like that not only is our President the forbidden foreigner(Deut. 17:15), but also the end time Anti-Messiah(Marxist out to fundamentally transform our system of government into Marxism that the women, who have on average better verbal skills then men(remember, Eve?)! Could two weeks bring on the Two-Witnesses of Revelation? After all, America is Israel(Gen. 48:16), not Judah, promised grace(Messiah), not race(irony?), as Joseph was given! P.S.: I have nothing against women, I love my wife Dolores(lady of sorrow-another irony?) with all my heart and sole and vice versa)! Besides being called the the only spiritual truth, she, an Italian, by the way, is the best thing that has ever happened in my life!

Could it be the classes like money?,If this current mode collapses will we adjourn the idea forever? or will another take it's place? one still has to buy the sword of change or make it thierselves.
