Trends for Downsizing the US: The Bright Side of the Panic of ‘08 - Christopher Ketcham, 27 January 2008 
“In 2008, Americans will wake up to the worst economic times that anyone alive has ever seen,” he wrote on December 17. “Just as they didn’t see 9/11 coming and were frozen in shock when terror struck, [Americans] will be frozen in shock when terror strikes again.” He predicts “failing banks, busted brokerages, toppled corporate giants, bankrupt cities, states in default, foreign creditors cashing out of US securities…the stage is set, the big one is on its way.” “Kidnappings for ransom will become common"

The black box economy - By Stephen Mihm, The Boston Globe, January 27, 2008
Behind the recent bad news lurks a much deeper concern: The world economy is now being driven by a vast, secretive web of investments that might be out of anyone's control. In tell-all books, financial blogs, and small-circulation newsletters, a handful of insiders have begun to sound the alarm, warning that governments and top bankers may simply no longer understand the financial system well enough to do anything about it. (...) "It's like a butcher. He doesn't want the buyer to know what goes into making the sausage." He chuckles, noting that it's the same with financiers. "That's what they're all about and always have been."

[China's public seigniorage] China's Rapid Growth is Not Hugely Dependent on Exports - The Economist, Jan 3rd 2008
Most people suppose that China's economic success depends on exporting cheap goods to the rich world. If so, its growth would be seriously dented by a stuttering American economy. Headline figures show that China's exports surged from 20% of GDP in 2001 to almost 40% in 2007... If exports are measured correctly, however, they account for a surprisingly modest share of China's economic growth ... China's economy is driven not by exports but by investment, which accounts for over 40% of GDP.

House Pets the Biggest Victims of US Economic Woes - By Jim Kouri, NewsWithViews.com, January 29, 2008
Several animal welfare experts say the US is witnessing an increase in the number of abandoned animals as a result of the housing crunch. "It seems people are giving up their pets after they are forced to move to a place where animals are forbidden, or when they end up crowding in with family or friends who are not amendable to furry friends. It's also possible some folks just can't afford Fido or Fluffy's chow or vet bills anymore," said Woods.

Signoraggio: sono 71 le famiglie italiane che controllano ognuna oltre 50 milioni di euro
Un mondo riservato che, secondo gli studi realizzati nel 2006 dall’Associazione italiana del private banking e da altre istituzioni, è composto complessivamente da 712 mila persone fisiche o nuclei familiari che possiedono un patrimonio superiore a 500 mila euro, per un totale di 820 miliardi di euro, in aumento del 4,3 per cento rispetto al 2005.

I «trasformisti» di un tempo erano dei gentiluomini in confronto. Pochissimo tempo prima della votazione decisiva, lo stretto collaboratore del senatore in oggetto veniva assunto come dipendente (veramente «una misera offa») all'Agecontrol, carrozzone statale addetto a controllare che i prodotti ortofrutticoli freschi vengano commercializzati secondo le disposizioni di legge...

De Benedetti: "Crisi senza precedenti, le ricette Usa non funzioneranno" - La Repubblica, 25 gennaio 2008
"Ho visto tante crisi in vita mia, ma erano circoscritte a una zona geografica (Messico, Thailandia, Russia) o a un'entità finanziaria come lo hedge fund Ltcm, che fu salvato facilmente da un'azione concertata delle banche americane. Perfino la crisi delle Savings&Loans, forse la più grande per dimensioni, era localizzata negli Stati Uniti. Quella che stiamo vivendo invece riguarda l'intero sistema finanziario mondiale" - Carlo De Benedetti

La cosa è del resto ammessa apertis verbis … nella relazione al disegno di legge varato dal Consiglio dei Ministri il 10 febbraio 1993: '…In conseguenza, non si consente agli esecutivi degli Stati firmatari del Trattato (di Maastricht, ndr) di esercitare signoraggio in senso stretto: OVVERO DI APPROPRIAZIONE DI RISORSE ATTRAVERSO QUELLA FORMA DI DEBITO INESIGIBILE CHE E'LA MONETA INCONVERTIBILE A CORSO LEGALE' ».

22 January 2008 - Oil Battles Gold for Investment Supremacy - By: Richard Daughty, The MOGAMBO GURU, news.goldseek.com
Naturally, even a bonehead like me knows that a one percent chance is not very good, and I saw that my chances of him coming across with that cool thousand bucks was now slipping away.

A standard obfuscation technique used by the European Commission to hide internal corruption is as follows. Open investigation A. Let it run for a month or two. Then open parallel investigation B. Let it run for some further months. Then arrange for several tame MEPs (Members of the European Parliament) to ‘call for’ investigation C. This then gives rise to ‘calls for’ investigations A and B to be suspended, a.k.a. held in abeyance, pending the outcome of investigation C. If this multi-layered obfuscation methodology fails to kick the embarrassing corruption issue into the no-man’s land between Commissions, open investigation D. Repeat the cycle as necessary.

Gold: How High is High? - Antal E. Fekete, Gold Standard University Live, Jan 21, 2008
"Something is rotten in the state of economics. In the middle of the 20th century a group of bankers bribed some of the nation's top colleges to peddle a reactionary economic theory (which was to make bankers a lot of money). This theory swept American higher education with the result that pretty well everybody who has graduated with a degree in economics no longer has the slightest idea of what he is talking about... There is nothing wrong with the science of economics, but there is something terribly wrong with the kind of trash handed out by our nation's colleges today. It is people dumb enough to imbibe such trash who are the reporters and columnists in most of the media, and these are the people giving most Americans economic advice."

La disoccupazione - Patrizio R., Effedieffe, 20/01/2008
I rimedi al problema sono noti: si crea occupazione incrementando la domanda, attraverso la realizzazione di opere pubbliche (la spesa pubblica) cercando altresì di favorire gli investimenti con agevolazioni fiscali e facilitando l’accesso al credito. [Più che all' "accesso al credito" sarebbe opportuno pensare ad una democratizzazione della creazione monetaria: eliminando l'oligopolio di fatto, la libera concorrenza riequilibrerebbe il mercato]

Former IRS Agent Joe Banister and Ron Paul On CNBC (video) - September 19, 2007
Joe Banister
Joe Banister is a graduate of San Jose State University where he earned a Bachelor's degree in Accounting. He was a Certified Public Accountant for 15 years. In 1993 he accepted appointment to the Department of the Treasury, IRS Criminal Investigation Division, as a Special Agent (Criminal Investigator). Mr. Banister is believed to be the first and only IRS Criminal Investigation Division Special Agent ever to conduct an off-duty investigation about claims that the federal income tax is fraudulently administered and enforced and then confront top IRS officials about the validity of those claims. After confronting those officials, including his own IRS supervisors, he was encouraged to resign and did resign from the IRS on February 25, 1999. He has spoken out against the fraudulent administration and enforcement of the federal income tax ever since.

Do you think this is limited to the US? The politicization of all economic data in the G7 has been expanding every year since 1990.

[sovranità monetaria] ANNAMARIA VITERBO, I REGIMI DI CAMBIO NELL’ODIERNO SISTEMA MONETARIO INTERNAZIONALE, Il diritto dell’economia, Mucchi editore, n. 1, 2005
"Una quarta possibilità di addivenire ad una dollarizzazione ufficiale è, infine, data dall’intervento delle Nazioni Unite. Spesso, infatti, negli interventi di aiuto alla ricostruzione di paesi come il Kosovo, Timor Est, l’Afghanistan e l’Iraq, sia le Nazioni Unite che il FMI hanno incoraggiato, ovvero anche direttamente condotto, una precisa politica monetaria. In alcuni casi i pareri degli esperti del Fondo (e talvolta anche degli esperti del Tesoro americano) hanno influenzato e indirizzato le decisioni sull’adozione di un nuovo regime di cambio; in altri casi le Nazioni Unite hanno proceduto alla dollarizzazione di un paese come misura di amministrazione provvisoria. Si pensi alle decisioni dell’amministrazione UNMIK in Kosovo (oggi territorio facente parte della Federazione di Serbia e Montenegro) tramite le quali è stato attribuito corso legale all’euro o alla decisione del Rappresentante Speciale del Segretario delle Nazioni Unite per Timor Est di adottare il dollaro come moneta legale. Questi interventi, in quanto volti a ristabilire l’ordine pubblico monetario e la sicurezza delle transazioni, sono ritenuti conformi al diritto internazionale consuetudinario anche nell’ipotesi in cui mancassero del consenso dello Stato della moneta."

Lord Bryce: "Democracy has no more persistent and insidious foe than money powers. Questions regarding Bank of England, its conduct and its objects, are not allowed by the Speaker" (of the House of Commons).

"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

"Non appena pervenne alle nostre orecchie che a cagione di una nuova controversia (precisamente se un certo contratto si debba giudicare valido) si venivano diffondendo per l’Italia alcune opinioni che non sembravano conformi ad una saggia dottrina, ritenemmo immediatamente che spettasse alla Nostra Apostolica carica apportare un rimedio efficace ad impedire che questo guaio, con l’andar del tempo e in silenzio, acquistasse forze maggiori; e bloccargli la strada perché non si estendesse serpeggiando a corrompere le città d’Italia ancora immuni."
- Benedictus PP. XIV, enciclica Vix Pervenit, Roma, 1 Novembre 1745

As Winston Churchill pointed out to Lord Robert Boothby. “The unforgivable crime of Germany, before the second world war, was her attempt to extricate its economic power from the world’s trading system and create its own exchange mechanism which would deny world finance its opportunity to profit”.

“The crisis takes a much longer time coming than you think, and then it happens much faster than you would have thought.” 
- Rudiger Dornbusch, MIT Economist
