The $100 Trillion Reason Why Central Banks Are Terrified of Debt Deflation

For over 20 years, Japan has been ground zero for the great Keynesian nightmare of Central Planning. Japan’s financial bubbles burst in 1989-1990. Since that time, Japan has seen little to no growth for thirty straight years. The Bank of Japan has dealt with this by running an effective zero percent interest rate policy and implementing over NINE different QE programs amounting to an amount of money equal to over 50% of Japanese GDP. Throughout this period, neither Japan’s GDP growth numbers nor its employment growth numbers have improved significantly.

Speaking in Sydney, Debelle, who is also chief of financial markets at Australia's Reserve Bank, said: "While there is more forward guidance from central banks in place than in the past, investors do not have to believe it.

European IMF directors protected the banks, but hit the Greeks

As such, the IMF was asked stand-by arrangement of thirty billion euro's in the spring of 2010. However, many non-European countries questioned this approach, as says the office memorandum (of May 10, 2010) on the Executive Board's meeting dealing with the Greek aid request. But because seven of the twenty-four executive directors (ED's) are EU-members, plus the managing director who presides the meeting, the EU is very influential in the decision-making process. As it turns out, the EDs from Germany, Belgium, Spain, the Netherlands, France en Denmark delivered a joint statement pro IMF-support to Greece at the board meeting. Banks evade responsibility.

Russia Is Dominated By Global Banks, Too

As April begins, we once again turn a mischievous eye to the concept of the fool and, as always, each person seeks to be the prankster and never the victim. Unfortunately, even the most vigilant of Americans can sometimes be led astray by a clever ruse, and I believe this is taking place today in the Liberty Movement’s perception of the rising “tensions” between Russia and the West. In my article Ukraine Crisis: Just Another Globalist-Engineered Powder Keg, I outlined the history of false paradigms and engineered conflicts between numerous nations, including how these conflicts are exploited by global money interests to consolidate and centralize social and political power.

Document: JPMorgan Chase Bets .4 Billion on the Early Death of Workers. By Pam Martens and Russ Martens: March 24, 2014 (Left) JPMorgan's European Headquarters at 25 Bank Street, London Where Gabriel Magee Died on January 27 or January 28, 2014 Under Suspicious Circumstances Families of young JPMorgan Chase workers who have experienced tragic deaths over the past four months, have been kept in the dark on many details, including the fact that the bank most likely held a life insurance policy on their loved one – payable to itself.

Exclusive: EU executive sees personal savings used to plug long-term financing gap - News. By Huw Jones LONDON (Reuters) - The savings of the European Union's 500 million citizens could be used to fund long-term investments to boost the economy and help plug the gap left by banks since the financial crisis, an EU document says.

The EU is looking for ways to wean the 28-country bloc from its heavy reliance on bank financing and find other means of funding small companies, infrastructure projects and other investment. "The economic and financial crisis has impaired the ability of the financial sector to channel funds to the real economy, in particular long-term investment," said the document, seen by Reuters.

The Commission will ask the bloc's insurance watchdog in the second half of this year for advice on a possible draft law "to mobilize more personal pension savings for long-term financing", the document said. Banks have complained they are hindered from lending to the economy by post-crisis rules forcing them to hold much larger safety cushions of capital and liquidity.
