Mueller writes: In September 2010, a short time before the international financial summit of the Group of Twenty (G20) took place in South Korea, Brazilian finance minister Guido Mantega declared that the world is experiencing a "currency war" where "devaluing currencies artificially is a global strategy."

Fiat Currency World Uprising and Downfalling / Politics / Fiat Currency

By: Midas_Letter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCertain characteristics of crumbling empires are historically recurring, and pattern recognition practitioners are thus informed and so forewarned. Their discourse is labeled contrarian, hysterical, strident or radical, depending on the source of criticism, who seldom survive the subsequent reality to be told “I told you so”. Thats not the point anyway.

Food Prices Aren't Rising, Fiat Currencies Are Collapsing, Massive Monetary Inflation / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Jeff_Berwick

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt has been a most interesting month of January.  A likely presage to an interesting year to come.

In these pages we have spoken often about what will be the first real domino to fall in causing a chain reaction ending up in massive global political and financial change.  Often we follow our predictions with a statement something along the lines of, “but, in actuality, the defining primary event will likely come from somewhere that no one expects”.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: When Brazil Finance Minister Guido Mantega recently warned of a "currency war that is turning into a trade war," he wasn't far off the mark - at least as far as Latin America is concerned.

In that region - in the last two weeks alone - at least three countries have taken steps to prevent their currencies from appreciating against the U.S. dollar.

The Nomadic Nature of Money / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Richard_Daughty

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI was intrigued that a guy named David Thurtell, of Citigroup, surprisingly said, “The liquidity pumped out by central banks means that there is a lot of money sloshing around that needs to find a home.”

I was so intrigued that I was tempted to use it as the basis for my first report to the new supervisor for this quadrant of the galaxy, Karpus Klegg the Implacable, at his new office at Intergalactic Headquarters after the “palace coup” and interstellar personnel shake-up that I just found out about.

The Faults of Fractional Reserve Banking / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Thorsten_Polleit

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn a November 1, 2010, blog post titled "Could the World Go Back to the Gold Standard?," Martin Wolf, the Financial Times chief economics commentator, comes to the conclusion that "we cannot and will not go back to the gold standard."

Among a number of mainstream-economics arguments leveled against the desirability and feasibility of the gold standard, Mr. Wolf puts forth a line of reasoning that can serve particularly well as a starting point for debating his position. Mr. Wolf writes,

U.S. Dollar and Euro, Two Flawed Currencies / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: John_Browne

Despite America's economic problems, the US dollar has maintained its respected status the world over - and has even managed to maintain value in comparison to other currencies. It appears that the dollar will likely finish 2010 at the same levels that it started. Even today's announcement of more tax cuts and stimulus, which will guarantee widening federal deficits for years to come, could not put a dent in the dollar. The dollar's charmed life stands in strong contrast to the euro, which is currently suffering from its internal flaws and the Europeans' unfortunate recognition of reality.

What Happens When Currencies Go Bust? / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Richard_Daughty

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI was telling the doctor that I distinctly heard a popping sound inside my head when I saw that the foul Federal Reserve had created, last week alone, another $24.2 billion in Fed Credit, which was instantly turned into money when the Fed bought $24.2 billion of US government securities, and all in One Freaking Week (OFW)! It made a kind of "sizzling" sound.

Nouriel Roubini Academic Economist Ignores Fiat Money Failures / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Richard_Daughty

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleUnfortunately, it is not only Robert Zoellick of the World Bank that has notoriously turned against a gold standard, but The DailyBell writes about similar sentiments from Nouriel Roubini, university professor, in their article "Roubini: Here's Why a Gold Standard Won't Work."

Naturally, I can't believe my eyes! The fact is that the gold standard is the only system that HAS worked all through history, and you would think that Mr. Roubini would know that! Wow!

Fiat Currencies in Crisis, U.S. Dollar Surpluses Conversion into Gold / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Bob_Chapman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSomething is going on that your government does not want you to know about. Very few journalists have written about it and little or nothing has appeared in the mainstream media. The story could be one of major stories of our time.

Western powers have tried to destroy gold as a backing for currencies for many years. Presently the major media won’t touch the story and that is understandable.

Is China's Renminbi Already The New World Reserve Currency? / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Global_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTyler Durden writes: With the dollar tumbling overnight, many were scratching their heads as to what caused the move in the dollar. Citi's Stephen Englander provides a useful explanation, which fits perfectly with the commentary from PBoC advisor Li's earlier that the dollar's position as a reserve currency is now "absurd": namely that more and more in the world are starting to look at the CNY as the new reserve currency. And as we pointed out earlier, its fixing surge of over 0.5% overnight caused many to blink. Is China finally pushing to aggressively force the dollar out?

More Real Bill Fallacies / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Professor_Emeritus

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn the first article of my two-part series on the Real Bills Doctrine (RBD), in commenting on the Daily Bell's interview with Professor Lawrence H. White on October 10, 2010, I made the central point that the source of commercial credit is not saving but consumption. The following example will dramatize this point. Assume for the sake of argument that all banks in the whole wide world succumb to the sudden death syndrome simultaneously. What does this mean in terms of the production and distribution of consumer goods? Would we have to go back and start from scratch to save in order to replenish society's circulating capital? Saving is a time-consuming process and people have to get fed, clad, shod, and sheltered in the meantime. We could not restore circulating capital through saving for the simple reason that before we could we would die of starvation.

Currency War: “The Worst of Wars" / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Bryan_Rich

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLast week, here in Money and Markets, I suggested that the recent G-20 finance minister meetings could have a meaningful influence on the next trend in global currencies and other key markets. Therefore, we should pay very close attention to market activity.

I also suggested that this “influence” could be in the form of a coordinated intervention by G-4 economies (U.S., U.K., euro zone and Japan) to weaken the yen, a viable antidote to the bubbling and divisive currency tensions.
