Benelux, Germania e Gran Bretagna dovrebbero spiegarci com'è, adesso, che gli Stati possono sborsare quasi cento miliardi tra euro e sterline allo scopo di salvare le varie Dexia, Fortis e Bradford mentre le risorse non ci sono mai per effettuare importanti e necessarie opere produttive idonee al rilancio dell'economia e, quindi, alla reale fuoriuscita dalla crisi

U.S. Could Emerge as Major Player in Suits Stemming From Financial Crisis - Anthony Lin, New York Law Journal, September 22, 2008
In the wake of most economic crises, the silver lining for lawyers and law firms is a surge in litigation. In the current crisis, the massive scale of government intervention may limit the scope of private action. Instead, the government, especially if it proceeds with a proposal for a bailout agency similar to the Resolution Trust Corporation created in response to the 1980s Savings & Loan crisis, could emerge as the biggest litigant of all. Much of the litigation could be on behalf of taxpayers

We Are In One Of The Great Vortexes Of History - By Karl Schwarz, 9-21-8
The unchecked banking greed and the lack of proper legal controls and governmental oversight (thesis) has led to the current nightmare events of major banks and insurance companies failing or being bought out or funded by governments (antithesis). The synthesis is that, just in the United States alone, one trillion dollars of new public debt has been created in the last week or so to "solve" the problems. New debt that enriches the private owners of the Federal Reserve System (In Europe, think about who really are the private owners of the ECB...)

Impacts of the Financial Crisis: The U.S. Is Becoming an Impoverished Nation - by Richard C. Cook (former US Treasury officer), Global Research, September 19, 2008
The Federal Reserve and Treasury are trying to forestall and cover up the bankruptcy of the entire U.S. economy, which already is looming. But the injection of liquidity into the system only means more loans and more interest. With more foreclosures and bankruptcies, it also means that more assets pass into the bankers’ hands

Pareto's Bazooka - By Chan Akya, Asia Times, Sep 13, 2008
The larger framework for studying the interplay of governments with financial markets in crisis situations is defined in the rules of Pareto Optimality. Simply put, a Pareto optimal situation is one in which all players in the game get efficient outcomes. An external agent, like the government, that seeks to influence the outcome can either create a higher chance of such an optimality (a Pareto Improvement) or more likely, not

Battle plan for the 50 states - by Devvy Kidd, newswithviews.com, September 22, 2008
"The powers delegated by the proposed Constitution to the federal government are few and defined. Those which are to remain in the State governments are numerous and indefinite." – James Madison, "Federalist No. 45," Jan. 26, 1788.  Last week, with the blessing of Bush and most of the U.S. Congress, the robber banker barons threw gasoline onto a bonfire. The financial Mt. Vesuvius hasn't blown yet, but it will, and what was done last week and most likely through today, will be horrific. America has crossed the Rubicon.......

America Reduced to Third World Status - by Joan Veon, newswithviews.com, September 22, 2008
For more than a week the news media has been a buzz, clamoring for the need to change our regulatory system. The passage, by Congress, of “The Treasury Blueprint for a Modernized Financial Regulatory System,” will hand over to the Federal Reserve the last vestiges of our financial sovereignty: savings and loans; state chartered banks; thrifts and credit unions; the entire mortgage and insurance systems, as well as oversight of the Payment and Settlement System of Wall Street. In addition, the Feds would gain oversee rights to all of America’s financial markets......

Question: What happens when you destroy a negative? Is that a bad thing, or a good thing?
Answer: It depends on how good of a liar you are. If you can get everybody to believe that the negative is something of positive value, its destruction will be seen as a catastrophe

Paulson's Market Manipulation Bailout Will Fail Because... - By: Robert McHugh PhD, Sep 21, 2008
The Treasury will issue notes to the Fed, the Fed will come up with the cash (printed out of thin air), and the cash will be handed to Wall Street. This process fails miserably to solve the problem, which is the dire financial condition of the average American household. The trillions of dollars being printed out of thin air should be going to each and every household in America , not just Wall Street .Because the plan fails to bailout the American household, it will fail

Can you believe this?
  Under the Paulson Merry-go-round reversed-time's-arrow plan, the Treasury will buy the toxic paper, which will give the financial sector the funds to pay off debtors, who will use the funds to buy the Treasuries the feds will have to issue to finance the toxic-paper purchases... This not only defies the JUDICIAL LAW, this defies the ENTROPY LAW (the Second Law of Thermodynamics). Definitely, we are freaking doomed.

Treasury Seeks Asset-Buying Power Unchecked by Courts - By Alison Fitzgerald and John Brinsley, Bloomberg, Sept. 21, 2008
The Bush administration seeks ``dictatorial power unreviewable by the third branch of government, the courts, to try to resolve the crisis,'' said Frank Razzano, a former assistant chief trial attorney at the Securities and Exchange Commission now at Pepper Hamilton LLP in Washington. ``We are taking a huge leap of faith.''

Understanding the Crisis - by Llewellyn H. Rockwell, Jr., mises.org, 9/20/2008
The core issue is that there is nothing to restrain money creation. The first time that people hear this, they find their minds rather boggled, and they want to know more. My whole experience in this area is that once people start digging around the area of monetary theory, they find that (1) it is not as difficult a subject as it seems, (2) it is endlessly fascinating, and (3) it explains far more than they realized before

Financial Bailout: America's Own Kleptocracy - by Michael Hudson, Global Research, September 20, 2008
The largest transformation of America's Financial System since the Great Depression. The Invisible Hand turned out to be accounting fraud, junk mortgage lending, insider dealing and a failure to relate the soaring debt overhead to the ability of debtors to pay - all of this mess seemingly legitimized by computerized trading models, and now blessed by the Treasury

Once we were bankers

"Una volta eravamo banchieri", così si presenteranno tra dieci anni davanti ad una pinta di birra in un qualche squallido pub di alcolizzati, molti consiglieri di amministrazione di istituti di credito e di banche d'affari che sono destinati a fallire nei prossimi trimestri

Henry Paulson il pataccaro! - di Marco Sarli, 19 settembre 2008
La cosa davvero stupefacente è che nessuno stia allestendo il più grande processo della Storia statunitense, una sorta di Norimberga della finanza, che richiederebbe un gigantesco stadio solo per ospitare gli imputati e lo stuolo di avvocati al seguito, un processo che dovrebbe vedere tra i principali imputati Ben Bernanke, in arte Bernspan, Henry Hank Paulson e l'ineffabile e molto improbabile capo massimo della Securities and Exchange Commission, Christopher Cox

"Serve una terapia d'urto o le Borse rischiano la chiusura" - di MASSIMO GIANNINI, la Repubblica, 18 settembre 2008
Il racconto di un trader: ormai il sistema è al collasso. "Sta accadendo qualcosa di inimmaginabile, mai visto prima". Le banche d'affari sono il "motore" del sistema finanziario globale. I loro clienti, investitori istituzionali ed hedge funds, sono l'olio che fa girare quel motore. Nel momento in cui l'olio viene a mancare, perché i clienti smettono di versarlo, il motore fonde, e la macchina è da buttare". La velocità con cui questa crisi si sta avvitando su se stessa è impressionante. Per questo, in attesa che qualcuno decida qualcosa, l'operatore ipotizza addirittura che le autorità decidano, da un giorno all'altro di chiudere le Borse...

Systemic Failure of the United States- Game Over - By: Jim_Willie_CB, The Market Oracle,  2008 Sep 18, 2008
Hidden inside the AIG bailout funding package, surely hastily cobbled together, but carefully enough to include a totally corrupt clause, was a handy dandy clause that permits raids. The conglomerate financial firms are permitted at this point to use private individual brokerage account funds to relieve their own liquidity pressures. This represents unauthorized loans of your stock account assets. So next, if the conglomerate fails, your stock account is part of the bankruptcy process !!!

"It gets spooky when he goes on to note that 'indeed, the Mint's inventory did vary monthly, up until March 2006. But according to the Treasury's reports, the Mint's working stock has remained exactly 2,783,218.656 ounces since April 2006.'"

The Window is Open - James Turk, GoldMoney, 14 September 2008
Last year the Treasury and the Federal Reserve told us the sub-prime crisis was "contained". Then they told us that bailing out Bear Stearns would end the financial meltdown. They told us that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac had sufficient capital and liquidity and would not need a bailout. What else are they going to tell us trying to make us believe that today's over-indebted financial structure will not collapse?

THE FINAL DESTRUCTION OF THE MIDDLE CLASS - By Joan Veon, NewsWithViews.com, September 15, 2008
The situation we are confronted with did not happen in the last few years, but began in 1913 when a group of cunningly deceitful legislators passed the Federal Reserve Act on December 24 at 11:45 p.m., after those who were opposed went home for Christmas. The entire financial system of the U.S. was transferred from Congress to a private corporation that is NOT accountable to Congress...

Paulson's Actions Herald the Financial Collapse of the American Economy - By: Peter_Schiff, The Market Oracle,, Sep 08, 2008

An Interview with Economist Michael Hudson - By MIKE WHITNEY, Counterpunch, September 8, 2008
Fannie and Freddie were notorious for their heavy Washington lobbying. They bought the support of Congressmen and Senators who managed to get onto the financial oversight committees so that they would be in a position to collect campaign financing from Wall Street that wanted to make sure that no real regulation would take place. Nearly all real estate experts are in agreement that for the next year or two, many of today’s homeowners will find themselves locked into where they are now living. Their situation is much like medieval serfs were tied to their land. They can’t sell, because the market price won’t cover the mortgage they owe, and they don’t have the savings to pay the difference

Gold & The Collapse of Paper [debt] Money - Darryl Robert Schoon, Sep 1, 2008
The great stock market bubble of the 1920s was caused by the sudden influx of leveraged credit from the introduction of debt-based money by the Federal Reserve in 1913. Just 16 years after its introduction, the explosive growth of credit in the hands of speculators led to the collapse of the US stock market in 1929 and was to bring the world economy to a virtual standstill by 1933. We are about to see a variation of that disaster, except this time it will be worse

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."
