The Fed is Now Flirting With NIRP… But That Won’t Be Its Worst Policy

The War on Cash is now accelerating. As the financial system lurches towards collapse, the elites and those who derive power from sitting at the top of the food chain are growing increasingly desperate to maintain the status quo. When 2008 hit, the Fed cut rates to zero and began implementing QE. It has now

The Fed is “Testing the Waters” for NIRP

The US Federal Reserve is obsessed with market reactions to its policies. Because of this, anytime the Fed plans to announce a major change in policy, it preps the markets via numerous leaks and hints… oftentimes for months in advance. An excellent example of this concerns the Fed’s decision to taper QE back in 2013.

More QE Will Not Stop the Coming Crash

The markets are surging this morning based on hype and hope of more QE from Central Banks. This view is overlook the fact that EVERY collapse follows a pattern: 1) The initial drop 2) The bounce to “kiss” former support 3) The real implosion. We’ve passed #1 and are in the middle of #2. Next

The Greatest Central Banking Con Job in History

One of the greatest con jobs in history was convincing ordinary people that Central Bankers care about the “economy” or Main Street. Aside from the complete lack of relevance that Main Street has for Central Bankers from a professional perspective (more on this in a moment), when do you think was the last time that

Are Stocks About to Repeat the 1929 Crash?

In the early 2000s, Alan Greenspan was worried about deflation. So he hired Ben Bernanke, the self-proclaimed expert on the Great Depression from Princeton. The idea was that with Bernanke as his right hand man, Greenspan could put off deflation from hitting the US. Indeed, one of Bernanke’s first speeches was titled “Deflation: Making Sure

Recession Watch: We’re Back in One

The Fed has now kept interest rates at zero for 81 months. This is the longest period in the history of the Fed’s existence, lasting longer than even the 1938-1942 period of ZIRP. And the US economy is moving back into recession. Consider that… Industrial production fell five months straight in the first half of

Fed Experts Call for NIRP… is a Physical Cash Ban Next?

More and more “experts” are calling for Negative Interest Rate Policy or NIRP. The US Federal Reserve is obsessed with market reactions to its policies. Because of this, anytime the Fed plans to announce a major change in policy, it preps the markets via numerous leaks and hints… oftentimes for months in advance. An excellent

Governments Have Begun Moving to Ban Physical Cash

The Central Banks hate physical cash. So much so they there will likely try to ban it in the near future. You see, almost all of the “wealth” in the financial system is digital in nature. The total currency (actual cash in the form of bills and coins) in the US financial system is a

It’s Official: Central Banks Are Losing Control

For six years, the world has operated based on faith and hope that Central Banks somehow fixed the issues that caused the 2008 Crisis. All of the arguments supporting this defied common sense. A 5th grader knows that you cannot solve a debt problem by issuing more debt. If the below chart was a problem

One by One Central Banks Are Losing Control

Since 2008, the Keynesians running global Central Banks had always suggested that there was no problem too great for them to handle. They’d promised to do “whatever it takes,” to maintain the financial system and print the world back to growth. Thus far, we’d seen some pretty aggressive moves. The most aggressive was committed by

The Real Reason the Fed Won’t Raise Interest Rates

Another Fed FOMC meetings has come and gone and interest rates remain at zero. The investing world is obsessed with guessing when the Fed will raise rates and by how much. The Fed has been dangling the “rate hike” over the markets since the beginning of the year. First we were lead to believe a

Why What’s About to Begin Will Dwarf 2008

Earlier this week I outlined how the next Crash will play out. Today we’ll assess why this Crisis will be worse than the 2008 Crisis. By way of explanation, let’s consider how the current monetary system works… The current global monetary system is based on debt. Governments issue sovereign bonds, which a select group of

These Two Assets Show Us a Crash is Coming

If the foundation of the financial system is debt… and that debt is backstopped by assets that the Big Banks can value well above their true values (remember, the banks want their collateral to maintain or increase in value)… then the “pricing” of the financial system will be elevated significantly above reality. Put simply, a

Is the Treasury Preparing For a Systemic Event?

Behind the veneer of “all is well” being promoted by both world Governments and the Mainstream Media, the political elite have begun implementing legislation that will permit them to freeze accounts and use your savings to prop up insolvent banks. This is not conspiracy theory or some kind of doom and gloom. It’s basic fact.

Could the Fed Implement a “Carry” Tax on Physical Cash?

The Fed meets this week on Wednesday and Thursday. Many in the investment world believe the Fed will finally raise interest rates during this meeting. If it does, this will be the first rate hike since 2006. And it will represent the first time in six years that rates are not effectively at zero. Will

Three Reasons the Fed Cannot Let Rates Normalize

Analysts and commentators remain hung up on whether or not the Fed will raise rates next week. Certain Fed officials have been stating that the Fed should commence tightening. However, with China’s bubble collapsing, dragging down the Emerging Markets, there are plenty of excuses for the Fed to postpone yet again. Ultimately, I remain convinced
