Corporate Media Bashes New Chavez Enabling Law Decrees - By Stephen Lendman, rense.com, 8-15-8
The New York Times and its on-the-scene reporter Simon Romero objected to "a wave of takeovers of private companies," including nationalizing "a large Spanish-owned bank." He was unconcerned about "relatively minor" decrees but took aim at more far-reaching ones and some he called efforts to "formalize socialist-inspired policies on the margins of the formal economy, like a measure declaring barter a legitimate system of payment."

L'alternativa di Totnes - GERALDINA COLOTTI, il manifesto, 10 Agosto 2008
Totnes si è anche dotata del Totnes Pound, una moneta autonoma che vale quanto una sterlina inglese, ma si può acquistare per 95 centesimi e la differenza costituisce un piccolo margine economico per chi l'acquista. Tutti i commercianti che aderiscono alla filosofia delle Transition towns accettano la banconota che circola in un ambito geografico limitato per consentire «alla ricchezza di rimanere nella comunità»

CREIAMO L’AUREO! LIBERIAMOCI DALLA DITTATURA USUROCRATICA E GUERRAFONDAIA DEL DOLLARO - di Guglielmo Maria Lolli-Ghetti, 7 agosto 2008

"Islamic Finance: Overview and Policy Concerns," CRS Report for Congress, July 29, 2008


Jack London,
The Iron Heel, Macmillan, 1908
"John D. Rockefeller owns Standard Oil stock worth between four and five hundred millions at the market quotations. He has a hundred millions in the steel trust, almost as much in a single western railway system, half as much in a second, and so on and on and on until the mind wearies of the cataloguing. His income last year was about $100,000,000--it is doubtful if the incomes of all the Rothschilds together make a greater sum. And it is going up by leaps and bounds."
In italiano: Jack London, IL TALLONE DI FERRO, 1908
A quei tempi le ruberie erano incredibilmente comuni. Tutti rubavano la proprietà agli altri. I dirigenti della Società rubavano legalmente o facevano legalizzare le loro ruberie, mentre le classi più povere rubavano illegalmente. Nulla, che non fosse custodito, era sicuro. Un numero enorme di uomini era impiegato come guardiano per proteggere la proprietà. Le case dei benestanti erano depositi di sicurezza, sotterranei e fortezze insieme. L'appropriarsi di cose personali altrui, che osserviamo oggi nei nostri figli, è considerato come un retaggio istintivo del caratteristico furto comunissimo in quei tempi...

[seigniorage masters] A Beretta a day keeps the dead at work away - Beppe Grillo, 31 August 2008

Men and half men, ominicchi, piglianculo and quaquaraquà - Beppe grillo
Italians didn’t deserve Giovanni Falcone. He knew that they would murder him. Just as Paolo Borsellino knew. They went to their death like the first Christians in the Coliseum. Left on their own by the institutions, the parties, by many colleagues. Borsellino died in front of his mother’s house. No security measure had been arranged

Central Bankers Go To Austrian School? - by The Mogambo Guru, 08/29/08
Probably like you, I have spent a lot of time in bars educating the common people found there that central bankers and most economists of the world are a corrupt, moronic and treacherous clot of intellectual traitors who don't know squat about economics, and instead believe strange, new equation-based theories that have names like "General Dynamic Integrated Analytical Equilibrium Monetary Whiz-Bang Do Wah Diddy Theory" that is all predicated on laughable-yet-inviolable imperatives

A-Holes at the J-Hole - by The Mogambo Guru, 08/27/08
This money supply/inflation thing is important because the world's biggest collection of idiots in the field of economics (featuring the clueless academic Ben Bernanke, chairman at the Federal Reserve) are convening at Jackson Hole, Wyoming, for the big annual conference on monetary policy where they will try and come up with some new scam or scheme that will hopefully correct the problems they caused with their last scam or scheme, which predictably failed. I can't stop laughing! This is so bizarre, so "theater of the absurd", that my mind is stuck in laughing mode! Hahahaha!

Worthless Money, Worthless Economy - by The Mogambo Guru, 08/25/08
After $150 billion borrowed, put into stimulus checks, sent and spent, tax revenue was still down 6%? Staggering! The economy is so bloated, indebted and dysfunctional that $150 billion of additional raw spending produces 6% less taxable income? Hahaha! We are so freaking doomed! "Honest government, honest money. Dishonest government, dishonest money. Worthless government, worthless money."

Double-Count Accounting Magic - by The Mogambo Guru, 08/21/08
I laugh when I look at the banks and notice that "non-borrowed reserves" is still a negative $123.3 billion! Hahaha! I mean, their total reserves are a paltry $44.4 billion, and of that, they borrowed $123.3 billion! Hahahaha! Creative accounting at its finest! Hahaha! And this laughable $44 billion that they call their "reserves" is their "cushion" against about $6.8 trillion in deposits! Hahahaha! And deposit insurance? Hahaha! Forget it; the charade of FDIC as "insurance" is exposed when one learns that the FDIC has only $53 billion to cover $6.84 trillion of bank deposits! (e ora, provate a fare il parallelo con il Fondo Interbancario di Tutela dei Depositi !!!)

FALLISCONO ALTRE DUE BANCHE
- Eugenio Benetazzo, 27 agosto 2008
Con la Columbian Bank, in Kansas, salgono a nove le banche fallite negli Stati Uniti da inizio 2008. Banca regionale con asset per 725 milioni di dollari e 622 milioni in depositi, il fallimento della Columbian ha valore prevalentemente segnaletico.  Ben Bernanke, presidente della Federal Reserve, ha parlato di uno dei contesti economici più difficili a memoria d'uomo, Ed anche in Europa continuano ad accendersi spie d'alarme sul settore del credito. La Danimarca ha dovuto procedere ad una nazionalizzazione-salvataggio per la sua ottava maggiore banca, Roskilde Bank, gravemente colpita dalla crisi dei mercati globale.  Il paese scandinavo segue così quanto già fatto nei mesi scorsi dalla Gran Bretagna, dove lo Stato è dovuto intervenire direttamente per salvare la Banca Northern Rock, anch'essa specializzata in mutui.

Stagflation is Here, and It is a Weapon of Mass Destruction - by Richard C. Cook, Global Research, August 20, 2008
With inflation now running at close to ten percent, we have entered a period of stagflation potentially worse than the 1970s. And stagflation is nothing less than a weapon of mass destruction aimed at the livelihoods not only of the elderly and those on fixed incomes, but also on students, the unemployed, families, and almost everyone who has a job in the producing economy

A 2005 Stanford University study found that there is enough wind power worldwide to satisfy global demand 7 times over — even if only 20% of wind power could be captured

Robert Shiller (YALE economist) Raises The Bankruptcy Issue - by John Hoefle, Executive Intelligence Review, August 22, 2008
Shiller begins with the observation that the viewpoints of the specialists and the various institutions are too narrow, that they have failed to alert us in advance to the array of potential problems we face, and that, "nobody seems to have a well-tuned plan to handle them. Given the threats posed by the financial crisis, a better framework for dealing with systemic crises is urgently needed

in un’area metropolitana della Florida, Cape Coral-Fort Myers, una famiglia su 64 ha perso o sta perdendo la casa; in California, una famiglia ogni 186; in Nevada, una ogni 106.

A Fabrication Bottleneck or Something More - by James Turk, GoldMoney, 17 August 2008
When I see or hear that store "shelves are bare", my first reaction is that government price controls have been imposed. Price controls always create shortages. But there are no price controls on the precious metals - at least not yet anyway. So absent price controls, the answer to dealer shortages is simply that the price of gold and silver is just too cheap

The Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008: An Analysis by Catherine Austin Fitts
By the summer of 2001, to finance trillions of undocumentable transactions, the U.S. government would have built up quite a discrepancy between outstanding securities and those reported on the U.S. government books, and another discrepancy between agency securities collateralized with things such as mortgages and actual valid liens on real things in the material world. Which leads us back to the interesting fact that the first plane that headed into the World Trade Center North Tower on September 11, 2008 took out Cantor Fitzgerald, the leading government bond dealer. All 658 employees present that day died, along with the system Cantor Fitzgerald used for settling transactions. This was not the only financial data destroyed that day. DOD has claimed that the attack on the Pentagon that day destroyed financial records. In addition, the destruction of WTC 7 resulted in loss of SEC and other federal agency enforcement records. Only one thing can cancel the day of reckoning, and that is a return to productivity—a reengineering of resources in households and communities; a revitalization of culture, education, and markets; a rebuilding of infrastructure; an integration of new technology and new process; and a shift away from warfare, centralization, financial fraud, and organized crime and those who lead and promote it

One dollar can get you a large soda at McDonald's, a used VHS movie at 7-Eleven or a house in Detroit.

And it still took 19 days to find a buyer

Stage 2 of Gold Bull Market Is Just Beginning - By Ambrose Evans-Pritchard, The Telegraph, August 12, 2008
My guess is that political protest will mark the next phase of this drama. Almost half a million people have lost their jobs in Spain alone over the last year. At some point the feeling of national impotence in the face of monetary rule from Frankfurt will erupt into popular fury. The ECB will swallow its pride and opt for a weak euro policy, or face its own destruction

Merrill Lynch reported a loss of $4.7 billion for the 2nd quarter on July 17. On July 28, eleven days after this earnings report they announced a $5.7 billion write-down and the issuance of $8.5 billion of stock. Thain, the $50 million man, is either lying or completely clueless regarding the company he runs. The SEC needs to investigate him, rather than short-sellers.

Over the counter derivatives now total over $596 trillion dollars, (click here [pdf]) ten times the size of the world economy. Those are paper assets, their value is derived from some other asset. That derivative size is what is going to destroy the world’s financial system, it’s all fraud

Systemic Paralysis - by Sharon Kayser, August 9, OEN, 2008
Usury is the root of all evils and this is something that will never be taught at school, unless there is a radical and interllectual wake-up call. If you need an example illustrating the plague of ignorance, let's consider Japan, where the suicide epidemic is tied to an economy under strain. As a result, after a decade of reforms and weak growth many middle-age and elderly men unemployed chose to end their lives. While the Japanese system allows the beneficiaries to collect life insurances in cases of suicide, we shouldn't jump to any fast conclusions. Throughout India, more and more troubled farmers are killing themselves...

Trillions Lost in Recent Economic Failures - August 6 2008
The banks now hide their damage from this fraud off balance sheet, and through "creative accounting" methods blessed by corrupt government regulators, they continue to mark their assets to model, and not to market, which models are based on bogus black box computations and statistical pipe-dreams and fantasies.  As this transpires, our leading financial institutions continue to wander around aimlessly as insolvent financial zombies in a remake of George Romero's "Night of the Living Dead," while claiming from their mouth to God's ears that their capital position is sufficient and that their financial condition is healthy

Inflation and the New World Order - by Richard C. Cook, Global Research, August 3, 2008
INFLATION AS CLASS WARFARE? According to relief workers in Haiti , mass starvation could begin in six to twelve months. Meanwhile, in our own country, traders have been making millions short-selling the declining U.S. stock market while some hedge fund managers made over a billion dollars last year. Their lobbyists have been battling in Congress to stop a move to raise the relatively low rate of taxation on their capital gains to the level of earned income. In other words, while ordinary people starve, Wall Street is doing just fine. Are we seeing the totalitarian dictatorship of the world’s financial elite being rolled out, with petroleum and food prices the primary weapon of a final coup d’etát against every national government on earth and their citizens? And if we knew who these “high-end investors” were, and who controlled them, wouldn’t we then understand who is in charge of the New World Order and for whom it really functions?

Michael Nield, The Police State Road Map, March 2005
The Western money monopoly is the central pillar of the New World Order monolith.

Maintaining this international army is a very expensive business, so it is important to understand the source of its funds

Riassunto del Sistema

Qual'è il confine tra il disimpegno e la complicità? Tra l'inettitudine e la collusione?

"E si osserva anche ciò che meglio di ogni altra cosa può dare la misura della situazione attuale: il dilagare del "metodo mafioso" a tutta la società, la penetrazione progressiva del modello del ricatto, della minaccia, dell'avvertimento. La scomparsa progressiva della "giustificazione", che lascia il posto alla pura forza. Al fondo di ogni trauma, di ogni episodio di terrorismo organizzato, di ogni manovra di potere o di corruzione politica, scavando, si trova uno sportello bancario."
- Lombard, "Soldi Truccati", ed. Feltrinelli, 1980, pag. 11

JESÚS HUERTA DE SOTO (in: MONEY, BANK CREDIT, AND ECONOMIC CYCLES, Ludwig von Mises Institute, 2006):
"Until specialists and society in general fully grasp the essential theoretical and legal principles associated with money, bank credit, and economic cycles, we may realistically expect further suffering in the world due to damaging economic recessions which will inevitably and perpetually reappear until central banks lose their power to issue paper money with legal tender and bankers lose their government-granted privilege of operating with a fractional reserve."
