What Currency Has the Highest Purchasing Power? / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: BATR

Establishment economists are the first vindicators that having a weak currency is essential to foster international trade. The utter absurdity that a nation can prosper when their coin of the realm buys less is inherently illogical. Yet, for the globalists, maintaining the myth that promoting exports in a system that is designed around transporting our domestic manufacturing capacity overseas is intellectually incongruent. So what is the essential argument for having a strong currency?

The Great Quickening - Finance & Currency / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Jim_Willie_CB

The quickening has begun in earnest. The end game might have begun in November with events picking up speed, remedy engaged in progressive steps, and geopolitical balance of power shifting in serious manner. The following are major events and factors in the Global Currency RESET in progress. The sequence of future events might become frightening, as the new financial structure comes into view. The potential for disruption to the USDollar- based supply chain and inventory system remains a high risk. The onset of the return of the Gold Standard to trade, banking, and currencies is upon us. The following are frequent topics within the Hat Trick Letter, within each and every monthly report.

Why Austrian Investing Is Important In The Era Of State Imposed Fiat Money / Economics / Fiat Currency

By: GoldSilverWorlds

We are living in extreme times. When it comes to investing, the economy and markets, the extreme monetary policies of central banks all over the world should be top of mind of every investor.

To make our point, we refer to the 3 following charts that readers know by now … But it always helps to put things in perpsective. Our focus here is on the time period as of 1971 which will likely go in history books as the era of the “Great Monetary Experiment” (or something alike).

Keynes on the Menace of Printing Money / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Michael_J_Kosares

How the celebrated economist might have structured his investment portfolio today

“I find myself more and more relying for a solution of our problems on the invisible hand which I tried to eject from economic thinking twenty years ago.” – John Maynard Keynes, 1946

John Maynard Keynes made that admission to Henry Clay, a member of the Bank of England's Advisory Committee, in 1946. Ten days later he passed away. Keynes had come full circle – from economic interventionist extraordinaire to proponent of Adam Smith's laissez faire. Twenty-five years after that, Richard Nixon would suspend dollar convertibility, scrap the Bretton Woods fixed exchange rate regime system of which Keynes was the principal architect and allow currencies and gold to float freely in international markets. The fiat money system of the late 20th and early 21st centuries was born. Though a radically different system from the one Keynes created in the aftermath of World War II, Richard Nixon declared upon its launch that "we are all Keynsians now."

U.S. Treasury Secretary Makes Sad Admission about Coinage Devaluation / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: MoneyMetals

Traders are bidding up the U.S. dollar and dumping metals as they become more convinced that the Federal Reserve will raise interest rates at its next meeting. Janet Yellen and company have been talking about raising rates for the better part of a year, though. All talk and no action so far.

Will they finally hike or keep crying wolf? We'll find out when the Fed meets on December 15-16.

How Money Disappears in a Fractional-Reserve Money System / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Frank_Shostak

Most experts are of the view that the massive monetary pumping by the US central bank during the 2008 financial crisis saved the US and the world from another Great Depression. On this the Federal Reserve Chairman at the time Ben Bernanke is considered the man that saved the world. Bernanke in turn attributes his actions to the writings of Professor Milton Friedman who blamed the Federal Reserve for causing the Great Depression of 1930s by allowing the money supply to plunge by over 30 percent.

Fiat Currency Endgame - More QE, NIRP, bails-ins and Pensions Plunder... / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Clive_Maund

The fiat money system should be branded a "crime against humanity" because of what its unbridled excesses must inevitably lead to - chaos, destitution and war - which is what we are clearly heading towards.

Over the past year or so, the Fed let the idea take hold that it was going to gingerly start a rate rise cycle, which helped to fuel a big rise in the dollar. The ruse worked and the Fed got a lot of bang for no buck. However when push came to shove and the time arrived a few weeks back when they had to "put up or shut up", they backed down, and it became apparent that the whole thing was a hoax. They do actually want to start a rate rise cycle, in order to start trying to undo the enormous damage caused by their profligacy of recent years, and because they are gravely concerned about their own bloated balance sheet, but it is apparent to all and especially them that if they try it they will crash already very fragile stockmarkets and burst various asset bubbles simultaneously, like the Real Estate bubble, not to mention the towering derivatives overhang.

Indonesian Rupiah Is In Trouble, Again / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Steve_H_Hanke

The rupiah is plumbing the depth it last visited in 1998 during the Asian financial crisis. The accompanying chart of the rupiah’s value against the U.S. dollar tells the tale. Although the rupiah’s recent plunge is not as dramatic as the post-July 1997 float of the rupiah, it is ugly nevertheless.

The War On Cash: Why Now? / Economics / Fiat Currency

By: MISES

Charles Hugh Smith writes: You’ve probably read that there is a “war on cash” being waged on various fronts around the world. What exactly does a “war on cash” mean?

It means governments are limiting the use of cash and a variety of official-mouthpiece economists are calling for the outright abolition of cash. Authorities are both restricting the amount of cash that can be withdrawn from banks, and limiting what can be purchased with cash.

A Revolutionary Pope Calls for Rethinking the Outdated Criteria That Rule the World / Politics / Fiat Currency

By: Ellen_Brown

Pope Francis has been called “the revolutionary Pope.” Before he became Pope Francis, he was a Jesuit Cardinal in Argentina named Jorge Mario Bergoglio, the son of a rail worker. Moments after his election, he made history by taking on the name Francis, after Saint Francis of Assisi, the leader of a rival order known to have shunned wealth to live in poverty.

The Complexity of Legal Tender / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Measuring wealth with an ever-expanding ruler makes for a carnival illusion of safety, suspended in a vast, uneven web of complexity.

The longer society and culture remain detached from the nature of true wealth, the more fragile we become to ‘normal’ risk. 

Complexity is not always good or robust.

The Power of Ideas for the Fiat Age / Politics / Fiat Currency

By: Tom_Naysburn

In every aspect of daily life people are searching for the best arguments; where to buy the cheapest and best quality washing powder, or internet provider, or car insurance or gym membership or whatever. The list of possibilities is infinite. People also like to acquire the best arguments, covet them and use them for personal gain, mostly without the consent of the owner. This is merely human nature, as the desire for intelligence sets us apart from the animals. If you don't believe me just consider the billions spent worldwide by intelligence agencies of various countries to obtain the arguments that others do not have.

Managing Trade Deficits / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Alasdair_Macleod

Currency devaluation is seen by nearly every macro-economist to be the cure for trade deficits. Recently they have recommended it to Greece arguing for the reintroduction of the drachma so that the Greek economy can become "competitive", and "rebalanced". This widespread assumption is easily demonstrated to be incorrect.

The Twilight of Cash? / Currencies / Fiat Currency

By: Andy_Sutton

Many decades ago you could walk into almost any bank with a bundle of cash and exchange it for a predetermined amount of gold and/or silver. Cash was used because of its portability, light weight, and the confidence of the citizenry that it was as good as gold. I’m sure you already know where this is going. Fast forward to present day and look around you at the plight of cash. It is now redeemable for nothing, is essentially worth nothing, has zero intrinsic value, and despite ludicrous measures, is rather easily counterfeited. So the question I’m going to pose is this: Why oh why would banks, the USGovt, and the global establishment want to outlaw and abolish something that is already a proxy for slavery and servitude? The dollar (and all paper currency for that matter) has already fulfilled its predestined purpose. A dollar buys a nickel’s worth – quite literally – and still people will break their backs, sacrifice their families, and even take the life of another all in the pursuit of pieces of paper. Why is the establishment so against cash?

China is in the late stages of constructing its thirteenth five-year plan, a process that commenced over a year ago and will result in a first draft in October. While the bulk of the plan will concern regional and domestic development, it is the international aspects that will concern the rest of the world. The plan, which will produce specific goals for 2016-20, is already having an effect on China's foreign and trade policy.

Payments, Currencies, and Broken Money / Currencies / Fiat Currency

“If you want a vision of the future, imagine a boot stamping on a human face – forever.”- George Orwell

As an advocate for sound money, I am forever tormented by the egregious and overt growth of asset confiscation. The indirect tax from monetary inflation, bank bail outs and coming bail-ins, moral hazard, two tiers of justice accompanied by the gradual conditioning of the masses toward acceptance and true self denial.
