How To Create a New World Reserve Currency / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGary North writes: For several months, there have been news reports of announcements by bureaucrats in China and politicians in Russia about the need for a new reserve currency to replace the U.S. dollar. One suggestion: substitute the non-currency known as the SDR (special drawing rights) of the non-governmental, non-central bank IMF (International Monetary Fund).

Fiat Currencies Race To Zero Acceleration A Certainty / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Captain_Hook

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJust when you think you have it figured out – bang – something changes. And present circumstances are no exception to this rule. Last week it appeared conditions were forming to sponsor a significant sell-off in stocks / equities this summer / fall, where a combination of sentiment and internals were moving into alignment in this regard. Not out of character in a mature market environment however, speculators stepped up put buying at expiry late last week, which has materially altered the sentiment backdrop, and correspondingly the prognosis for stocks moving forward.

Fiat Money in Death Throes / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Professor_Emeritus

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"Banking was conceived in iniquity and born in sin. The Bankers own the earth. Take it away from them, but leave them the power to create deposits, and with the flick of the pen they will create enough deposits to buy it back again. However, take away that power, and all the great fortunes like mine will disappear -- as they ought to in order to make this a happier and better world to live in. But, if you wish to remain the slaves of Bankers and pay the cost of your own slavery, then let them continue to create deposits." ~ Sir Josiah Stamp (1880-1941), one time governor of the Bank of England, in his Commencement Address at the University of Texas in 1927. Reportedly he was the second wealthiest individual in Britain.

Lack of a Credible Alternative Global Currency to the U.S. Dollar / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Pravda

A crisis is not a good time for seeking alternatives to the US dollar. Most likely, the dreams about new regional currencies will be put aside. The countries, which originally supported those ideas, gradually change their minds. The United Arab Emirates refused to participate in the Arab currency union. The expansion of the euro zone is not likely to happen in the nearest future. The Russian ruble is no longer ambitious either.

How to Become An INSTANT Billionaire! / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Investmentscore.com

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTo measure ones wealth, the "price" of ones assets is not very important but the "purchasing power" or "relative value" is very important.  Understanding this difference may be one of the most important concepts an investor can learn.  To become an "instant billionaire" simply measure the "price" of your investment portfolio in Zimbabwean Dollar's instead of your local currency.

The Great American Banking Experiment with Fiat Currency / Economics / Fiat Currency

By: Andy_Sutton

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOne of the most common questions that folks who are becoming newly acquainted with terms like ‘fiat money' and ‘fractional reserve banking' are asking is “How did we get here?” For sure, the recent publicity of 21 st Century Tea Parties along with the occurrence of the worst financial crisis in recorded history has people asking questions. In terms of the American obsession with central banking and fiat currency, 1913 is generally identified as the point where the country went wrong. In truth, however, our obsession with funny money has transcended all; including even, the birth of the nation.

Money Supply and the Purchasing Power of Fiat Currencies / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Mike_Hewitt

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis Article1. Introduction - In this paper, we analyze the value of money. We consider both paper money and gold. We attempt to relate the supply of money (MS) and gold to their purchasing power (PP). We demonstrate the extent to which printing of money dilutes its value. As a store of value, the value of money is represented by its purchasing power. We compare the ability of paper money and gold to function as a long-term store of value. We conclude that gold is an excellent store of value, while paper money is not. We observe that excessive printing of paper money is the ultimate cause for the inability of paper money to function appropriately as a store of value.

The Euro – Are There Any Hard Currencies Left? / Stock-Markets / Fiat Currency

By: Axel_Merk

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith gold reaching $1,000 an ounce and posting new highs versus all currencies, are there any hard currencies left? Over the past 100 years, we have moved further and further away from the gold standard. We see no indication for that trend to reverse; if anything, it may accelerate. As a result, we have cautioned long before this credit crisis erupted that there is no such thing as a safe asset anymore; investors may want to take a diversified approach to something as mundane as cash. This lack of confidence in cash goes beyond “cash equivalents” such as money market funds, commercial paper, auction rate securities, to currencies themselves. We all rely on cash for liquidity, but are concerned about purchasing power.

Fiat World Money Printing Mathematical Model / Economics / Fiat Currency

By: Mike_Shedlock

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn a fiat world, money is printed into existence by the central bank - in the United States the Fed. Given there is nothing backing up this money, it is inherently worthless. However, one can think of as real. It was printed (even if only electronically), therefore it exists.

In addition to the previously mentioned money supply, fractional reserve lending allows credit to be extended by banks and financial institutions on top of that inherently worthless money. Indeed, banks and financial institutions have leveraged credit to base money at ratios of 30-1, 50-1 or even higher.

By: Ty_Andros

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn 2008, the currency markets offered some of the greatest opportunities of all markets. Every currency had substantial moves ‘up and down' and many times BOTH ways, as deleveraging and stampedes of panic swept through the markets at different times. 2009 will be no different, only now we are going to look for sharp differences in two in particular. Those that exist in REAL MONEY will skyrocket and pretenders to that moniker will decline regardless of the country that issues them.
