    European leaders are now in Brussels to discuss tighter border controls….It’s likely they’ll be eager to introduce more radical security measures in light of recent terror attacks. In the context of the severe terrorist crisis, we want provisions made to strengthen border controls. This should include the considerable reinforcement of the EU’s external borders.

Is This How the Next Global Financial Meltdown Will Unfold?


  • The bone-dry half-dead forest awaiting an igniting lightning strike is the global mountain of debt–debt which is no longer supported by current valuations of commodities and risk.  … The sums in play are so staggering (an estimated $11 trillion in emerging market debts denominated in other currencies) that even the Fed won’t be able to stop the meltdown. – Quote
  • Is This How the Next Global Financial Meltdown Will Unfold?
    by Charles Hugh Smith, 
    In effect, a currency crisis is simply the abrupt revaluation of the currency to reflect new realities.

    I have long maintained that the structural imbalances of debt and risk that triggered the Global Financial Meltdown of 2008-2009 have effectively been transferred to the foreign exchange (FX) markets

    This creates a problem for the central banks that have orchestrated the “recovery” by goosing asset bubbles in stocks, real estate and bonds: unlike these markets, the currency-FX market is too big for even the Federal Reserve to manipulate for long. The FX market trades roughly the entire Fed balance sheet of $4.5 trillion every day or two. 

    Currencies are in the midst of multi-year revaluations that will destabilize the tottering towers of debt, leverage and risk that have propped up global growth since 2009.

    Though the relative value of currencies is discovered in the global FX market, there are four fundamental factors that influence the value of any currency:

    1. Capital flows into and out of the currency (and the nation that issues the currency). 
    2. Perceived risk, specifically, will this currency preserve my global purchasing power (i.e. capital) or erode it?
    3. The yield or interest rate paid on bonds denominated in this currency.
    4. The scarcity or over-abundance of the currency.

    If we dig even deeper, we find that currencies reflect the income streams and assets of the issuing nation.
    Consider the currency of an oil exporting nation that has seen both its income from selling oil and the underlying value of its oil in the ground fall by more than 50%.

    Why shouldn’t that nation’s currency decline in parallel with the erosion of income and asset valuation?
    As a nation’s income and asset base decline, there is less national income to pay interest on sovereign bonds, less private income to tax, and a reduced asset base for additional borrowing.

    This is especially true if the nation issued debt and/or currency profligately in good times.
    Recall that debt and currency are one in the same: if someone trades euros for a U.S. Treasury bond, they don’t just own a bit of sovereign debt–they own the currency of the nation that issued the bond (in this case, the U.S. dollar).

    This is equally true of corporate bonds–all the debt is denominated in a specific currency, and owners of the bonds are not just betting that the interest will be paid and the bond redeemed at maturity, but that the underlying currency will not lose much of its global purchasing power.

The Baltic Dry Shipping Index Just Collapsed To An All-Time Record Low


  • The Baltic Dry Shipping Index Just Collapsed To An All-Time Record Low
    by Michael Snyder,  
    I was absolutely stunned to learn that the Baltic Dry Shipping Index had plummeted to a new all-time record low of 504 at one point on Thursday.  I have written a number of articles lately about the dramatic slowdown in global trade, but I didn’t realize that things had gotten quite this bad already.  Not even during the darkest moments of the last financial crisis did the Baltic Dry Shipping Index drop this low.  Something doesn’t seem to be adding up, because the mainstream media keeps telling us that the global economy is doing just fine.  In fact, the Federal Reserve is so confident in our “economic recovery” that they are getting ready to raise interest rates.  Of course the truth is that there is no “economic recovery” on the horizon.  In fact, as I wrote about yesterday, there are signs all around us that are indicating that we are heading directly into another major economic crisis.  This staggering decline of the Baltic Dry Shipping Index is just another confirmation of what is directly ahead of us.

    Overall, the Baltic Dry Index is down more than 60 percent over the past 12 months.  Global demand for shipping is absolutely collapsing, and yet very few “experts” seem alarmed by this.

Mike Maloney: Bond Bust Will Be Biggest Crash in History

  • Mike Maloney: Bond Bust Will Be Biggest Crash in History
    by Greg Hunter’s 
    Precious metals expert Mike Maloney says we are experiencing a “rollercoaster crash.” Maloney explains, “The second half of the economic storm that started in 2007 and crashed in 2008, we’ve been in the eye of the hurricane from 2009 until today.  The second half of this economic storm is about to start.  I believe in 2016, we are going to see something happen, and 2017 will probably be pretty bad for the general economy.  . . . If we have a currency crisis, a recession, and this changing monetary system all together, it will be absolute chaos.”

    Maloney says you can blame a lot of this wild ride on the Federal Reserve. Maloney contends, “We’re going into the Bernanke bust.  The 2008 global financial crisis was of Alan Greenspan’s making.  Ben Bernanke just reacted to it.  It was caused by Alan Greenspan’s reaction to the crash of the NASDAQ.  So, we had a crash of the stock market in 2000.  Alan Greenspan over reacted and held interest rates down too long to try and get the stock market reflated and get it back up.  He accidentally created a real estate bubble.  The next crash was both stocks and real estate.  This time, it will be stocks, real estate and bonds.  So, this is going to be the biggest crash in history.  This bond market bubble is something that has been constantly inflated for the past 35 years.  When it pops, it’s going to be devastating.  A bond bubble bursting is deflationary.”

    Where does that leave gold and silver? Maloney says, “In the last great deflation, which was well studied, the Great Depression, gold rose 70%. . . . If you owned gold, you ended up with two and a half times more purchasing power. . . . One of the few assets that actually did well in the last great deflation was gold.”

This Economic Collapse Will Trigger a Stock Market Crash


  • This Economic Collapse Will Trigger a Stock Market Crash
    by Graham Summers,  
    We are in a global economic collapse. And it is going to trigger a stock market crash.

    The Central Bank fueled “recovery” is officially over.  Central Banks propped up the financial markets for six years. But the money was spent on financialization and accounting gimmicks (buybacks). That is, it didn’t get into the global economy in a useful way: corporate capital expenditures, job hires, etc. As a result, the global economy never really hit “lift off.”

    We can see this clearly in a number of economic images.

    Consider Oil, possibly the most economically sensitive commodity in the world. Oil isn’t just used to power cars and trucks, it’s present in lipstick, solar panels, polyester (stain resistant clothes), chewing gum, crayons, Aspirin, pantyhose, sneakers, detergent, CDs, plastics of any kind, food additives, fertilizers, pesticides and more. When these industries are growing, demand for Oil increases. And this demand typically results in higher prices. However, the price of Oil has collapsed, ending a 16-year bull market, and falling to levels not seen since 2004.

    Oil is the most striking example of economic collapse from the commodity space. However, ALL commodities across the board are showing economic collapse. Here is the Commodity Index. It is made up of Oil, Copper, Tin, Wheat, and every other commodity you can think of. It too has ended a 16-year bull market. Based on the lack of economic demand, prices for Commodities are back where they were in 1999. It’s as though the last 16 years of “growth” has been erased as far as demand is concerned.

IMF Ready To Accept The Chinese Yuan Into The SDR Basket To Challenge The Dollar

  • Published on Nov 16, 2015
    Empire Fed misses again, this is the 4th month in a row, signalling a depression. The economy is about to roll over and the retail sales are imploding. The FED might signal a interest rate increase which will mean they are ready to bring down the economy. IMF gives China the go ahead to become a reserve currency and be included in the basket of SDRs. Obamacare is a disaster and it is a hindrance on the people of America.
