Be Prepared For a Crash Landing!


As some of you are aware there is something large looming in the predictive linguistics concerning the first few weeks in November.  For those of you who don’t understand what I am talking about, let me give you a brief explanation.  Predictive linguistics can predict near future events with some accuracy based on analyzing different language sets appearing on the internet and the variation in frequency of these appearing “in the cloud”.

The effects of the predicted events in November have impacts never seen before in the project.  To put it in prospective to September 11th, it is about 5-6 times larger in predicted global impact.  Well that is enough to sit up and take notice.

The mid-term elections in the US will conclude, more or less, today.  This is significant because of what the Fed has been planning to initiate later this week.  The Federal Reserve is likely to start a fresh round of unorthodox stimulus tomorrow by announcing a plan to purchase at least $500 billion of long-term securities, according to economists surveyed by Bloomberg News.

Policy makers meeting today and tomorrow will restart a program of securities purchases to spur growth, reduce unemployment and increase inflation, said 53 of 56 economists surveyed last week. Twenty-nine estimated the Fed will pledge to buy $500 billion or more, while another seven predicted $50 billion to $100 billion in monthly purchases without a specified total. The remainder said the Fed would buy up to $500 billion or didn’t quantify their forecast.

The varied responses reflect differences among Fed officials over the total amount of purchases needed to bolster the recovery. Policy makers, pursuing unprecedented stimulus, have cut the benchmark rate almost to zero and bought $1.7 trillion in securities without generating growth fast enough to bring down unemployment from near a 26-year high.

The Fed has put intense effort into judging what it should signal and how. The FOMC has at least three broad options. First, it could be neutral, pledging to adjust the size of QE2 depending on the data. Second, it could signal a clear bias towards continuing to buy assets unless the economic data have improved. Third, it could pledge to keep buying assets until it is on track to achieve its inflation objective.

However, opponents of the QE2 have very critical opinions that these actions will take the global economy over the cliff. This outflow from the dollar is not the kind of capital that takes the form of tangible investment in plant and equipment, buildings, research and development. It is not a creation of assets as much as the creation of debt, and its multiplication by mirroring, credit insurance, default swaps and an array of computerized forward trades. The global financial system has decoupled from trade and investment, taking on a life of its own.

In fact, financial conquest is seeking today what military conquest did in times past: control of land and basic infrastructure, industry and mining, banking systems and even government finances to extract the economic surplus as interest and tollbooth-type economic rent charges. U.S. officials euphemize this policy as “quantitative easing.” The Federal Reserve is flooding the banking system with so much liquidity that Treasury bills now yield less than 1%, and banks can draw freely on Fed credit. Japanese banks have seen yen borrowing rates fall to 0.25%.

This policy is based on the wrong-headed idea that if the Fed provides liquidity, banks will take the opportunity to lend out credit at a markup, “earning their way out of debt” – inflating the economy in the process. And when the Fed talks about “the economy,” it means asset markets – above all for real estate, as some 80% of bank loans in the United States are mortgage loans.

The currency impacts can be significant and immediate.  By forcing up targeted currencies against the dollar, this U.S. outflow into foreign exchange speculation and asset buy-outs is financial aggression. And to add insult to injury, Mr. Geithner is accusing China of “competitive non-appreciation.” This is a euphemistic term of invective for economies seeking to maintain currency stability. It makes about as much sense as to say “aggressive self-defense.” China’s interest, of course, is to avoid taking a loss on its dollar holdings and export contracts denominated in dollars (as valued in its own domestic renminbi).

Countries on the receiving end of this U.S. financial conquest (“restoring stability” is how U.S. officials characterize it) understandably are seeking to protect themselves. Ultimately, the only serious way to do this is to erect a wall of capital controls to block foreign speculators from deranging currency and financial markets. Changing the international financial system is by no means easy. How much of alternative do countries have, Martin Wolf recently asked. “To put it crudely,” he wrote:

“The US wants to inflate the rest of the world, while the latter is trying to deflate the US. The US must win, since it has infinite ammunition: there is no limit to the dollars the Federal Reserve can create. What needs to be discussed is the terms of the world’s surrender: the needed changes in nominal exchange rates and domestic policies around the world.”

An eerie calm has descended upon world financial markets as they await perhaps the two most important financial events of the year this week.  On Tuesday, investors will be eagerly awaiting the results of one of the most anticipated midterm elections in U.S. history.  On Wednesday, the Federal Reserve is expected to end months of speculation by formally announcing the details of a new round of quantitative easing.  If either the election or the meeting of the Federal Reserve open market committee delivers a highly unexpected result, it could have a dramatic impact on world financial markets.  In fact, many are looking at this week as a potential turning point for the U.S. economy.  The decisions that are made or not made this week could set us down a road from which the U.S. economy may never recover.

This is probably the most significant move of the current economic crisis and the results of the FED’s action will literally affect every family in the world and that is not an exaggeration.  To put this in real simple terms, the US has declared war on the world’s currency.  Now the question is how will the world react to this move.  What effect could the FED’s actions have on the fragile EU economy?  How will China, especially, respond.  China being the biggest holder of US securities, the FED printing $500 Billion in “new money” grossly devalues China’s investment.  Does China take that sitting down?  I don’t think so.

So, let’s go over the procedures for a crash landing.  In the event of…….

    1. Thank you for your kind words. I do not think1% of the people in the world really understand the “games” that are now afoot. I am confident that if everyone understood the impacts of these decisions on their family budget, and more importantly their future financial opportunities, I am sure we would cultivate the correct political actions to correct the current course of madness these bankers have us on. Comments like your’s give me some solace that maybe I reached at least one ear.

    1. Thank you for your comments. It is helpful to get feedback on presentation as well as content. The events that have unfolded since the article, including QE2, G20 meeting, and the various moves related to currencies’ valuation, ECB bailouts being extended for Ireland, and likely others combined with zero job creation and unemployment benefits in the US not being extended certainly seems to re-enforce my concerns. Check to be sure there is a parachute in that bag!

  1. This article was very well created, and it also contains a whole lot of useful facts. I appreciated your professional manner of writing the post. You have created it effortless for me to understand.

    1. Thanks for the comments. It is always encouraging to know I am achieving the goal of the blog. That goal is simply to report and focus on the issues that mainstream media seems to overlook or over gloss. I still don’t think in general people really understand what is transpiring. The entire global economy is being managed like a casino, but when the high rollers lose, we pay! Thanks again and pass it forward.

Yours trully, Marybelle.

    1. Marybelle:
