  10. http://moneymorning.com/2008/09/10/capital-markets-credit-crisis/ “Besides deferringlosses, banks and investment banks manipulate critical measures of capital adequacy in order to remain, in the eyes of regulators and the public, adequately capitalized and solvent. Tier 1 capital, the principal measure of adequate equity capital, consists of shareholder equity, irredeemable preferred stock and retained earnings. The more Tier 1 capital a bank has, supposedly, the safer it is............. In order for banks and investment banks to make their capital-reserve-holding requirements disappear, they would have to make the assets against which capital needed to be held disappear. And, with a wave of the wand and the magic words hocus-pocus, they did. Welcome to the world of “now you see it, now you don’t” – better known as “structured investment vehicles” (SIVs) and conduits.”

Specifically, it shows that TMS rose from $1,725B in Jan-1990 to $5,444B in Aug-2008 -- a percentage gain of 215% over the period in question. The second chart shows that the total quantity of bank reserves FELL from $63B to $45B over the same period. Taken together, the charts show that a 215% rise in total money supply was accompanied by a 28% decline in bank reserves. (By the way, TMS does not include bank reserves. It comprises currency in circulation plus demand deposits plus savings deposits).

    But even worse than those problems, as serious as they are, is the fact that the entire system is literally a “debt trap.” When money is created by the central bank and borrowed into circulation by government or commercial banks, more money is owed to the cartel than actually exists. This is because the interest on the principal charged by the central bank was never created with the money that was originally lent out.The results of this trap were illustrated in the conclusions of Ronald Reagan’s Grace Commission: “100% of what is collected is absorbed solely by interest on the Federal Debt ... all individual income tax revenues are gone before one nickel is spent on the services taxpayers expect from government.” The system literally depends on the creation of ever greater debt loads in perpetuity, and if new borrowers cannot be enticed into taking out loans, the whole economy collapses — leaving the bankers in control of everything (plus interest).”

Pressure for change increased the following decade when the government obtained a share in the Bank of New Zealand as a result of the banking crisis of 1893; there were calls for the government to use this organisation to influence interest rates and even undertake some central banking functions.”
  4. http://www.sustecweb.co.uk/past/sustec13-1/How%20the%20Debt-based%20Monetary%20System.htm Canada brought back to heel by private bankers; McGeer’s insight into the debt-based monetary system of the '20s and '30s and his persistent fight to change it was rewarded when the government of MacKenzie King in 1938 nationalized the Bank of Canada, returning to government the control of the creation of the nations’ currency and credit.1The legislated mandate of the nationalized Bank of Canada states:
    “It is desirable to establish a central bank in Canada to regulate credit and currency in the best interest of the economic life of the nation to control and protect the external value of the national monetary unit, and to mitigate by its influence fluctuations in the general level of production, trade, prices, and employment, so far as may be possible within the scope of monetary action, and generally to promote the economic and financial welfare of Canada.”This mandate was followed from 1938 until the mid 1970s, Canada’s best financial years in the interest of the citizens in financing our infrastructure, housing, and all our proud social programs. In the mid 70s, a change of policy took place which gradually gave back the control and creation of credit to the private banks.It was the Conservative governments of Brian Mulroney that initiated the erosion of the legislative mandate of our Bank of Canada in a number of ways, and successive Liberal governments continued the abuse. The powerful mandate still remains, but government practice refuses to honour it. To wit by the following:Since 1975, our governments have decreased the use of our Bank of Canada to hold Canada’s debt. Result? A dramatic increase of unnecessary interest paid. In 1975 the total federal debt was $37 billion. By the year 2000 it was $585 billion. This dramatic increase was due to borrowing money from foreign and domestic banks at market rates of interest, rather than borrowing from our own Bank of Canada at nominal rates of interest, the payment of which come back into government coffers as dividends.

These 2 billion people are richly resourceful, often living sustainable lives.

  4. http://www.progress.org/reform21.htm “First, when the banking cartel loans money, only the principal gets created, not the interest. This is why the overall indebtedness of the economy ($31 trillion at present) is always several times greater than even the most liberal estimate of the money supply ($8.5 trillion at present). Granted, if no one borrowed, there would be no interest to pay; but there would also be no money supply, and thus no economy.”
  5. http://www.prosperityuk.com/prosperity/articles/negcon.html “The fact that -- in a debt based economy -- levels of borrowing/money creation have to keep on rising, and thereby adding to the overall burden of interest payments, guarantees that inflation will be present as long as we have an economy based on an increasing burden of debt.”
  6. http://www.appropriate-economics.org/ebooks/kennedy/chap1.htm “A further reason why it is difficult for us to understand the full impact of the interest mechanism on our monetary system is that it works in a concealed way. Thus the second common misconception is that we pay interest only when we borrow money, and, if we want to avoid paying interest, all we need to do is avoid borrowing money. Figure 3 shows that this is not true because interest is included in every price we pay.”

This is because the interest on the principal charged by the central bank was never created with the money that was originally lent out.The results of this trap were illustrated in the conclusions of Ronald Reagan’s Grace Commission: “100% of what is collected is absorbed solely by interest on the Federal Debt ... all individual income tax revenues are gone before one nickel is spent on the services taxpayers expect from government.” The system literally depends on the creation of ever greater debt loads in perpetuity, and if new borrowers cannot be enticed into taking out loans, the whole economy collapses — leaving the bankers in control of everything (plus interest).”

    Being a central bank, the Fed has taken upon itself the job of supplying the dollars that we use to make transactions. To supply our currency, the Fed either prints it, or it simply adds funds to America’s ledgers by making an electronic adjustment to its books. To spread this currency throughout society, the Fed loans this “cash” to government or big banks for a very low interest rate, and the banks, in turn, loan it to other banks, which expand the supply even more and loan it to consumers.
    The Fed can artificially boost segments of the economy, such as housing, for a period of time (even many years) by creating lots of money and flooding the market with it by offering it at very low interest rates — prompting lots of people to take out low-interest loans to build houses (and causing a market bubble).

The compounding effect of interest (usury) requires only the passage of time (and the “gracious” extension of due dates by the lender) for borrowers to sink deeper and deeper into the quicksand of debt. The obfuscation of the distinction between “usury” and “interest” has been an important factor in the evolution of the present dysfunctional and inequitable monetary system.

  2. “Van der Heyden said his extended family's investment was less than 10 per cent of Manuka, a company investing in Chilean farms, whose main shareholders were two very successful farming families -- the Townshend and Balle families. The van der Heyden investment was "a toe in the water". The Townshend and Balle families were driving Manuka, he said. Mark Townshend is a former director of dairy giant Fonterra and a dairy farmer. The Balle family are potato and onion growers and exporters in Pukekohe, South Auckland.”
  3. http://www.stuff.co.nz/sunday-star-times/business/625231 “But some farmers saw the Soprole price cut as an attempt by Fonterra to flex its new strength at their expense. The company said, though, it was responding to falling product prices in global markets. The farmers are worried this rising tide of New Zealand investment will harm their livelihood. They are particularly concerned by competition from Kiwi farmers investing heavily in local land. They are introducing seasonal pasture farming techniques with lower production costs than the Chilean system of year-round milking of cows fed on grains and forage. The latest, and by far the biggest, deal was the recent purchase of a 19,000ha estate near Osorno, the dairy capital of Chile. The buyer was a New Zealand investment group led by Mark Townshend, a large-scale farmer at home and a former Fonterra director. Henry van der Heyden, Fonterra's chairman, is one of the co-investors. They plan to develop it into a series of farms stocking a total of 45,000 cows.”

    “It is desirable to establish a central bank in Canada to regulate credit and currency in the best interest of the economic life of the nation to control and protect the external value of the national monetary unit, and to mitigate by its influence fluctuations in the general level of production, trade, prices, and employment, so far as may be possible within the scope of monetary action, and generally to promote the economic and financial welfare of Canada.”This mandate was followed from 1938 until the mid 1970s, Canada’s best financial years in the interest of the citizens in financing our infrastructure, housing, and all our proud social programs. In the mid 70s, a change of policy took place which gradually gave back the control and creation of credit to the private banks.It was the Conservative governments of Brian Mulroney that initiated the erosion of the legislative mandate of our Bank of Canada in a number of ways, and successive Liberal governments continued the abuse. The powerful mandate still remains, but government practice refuses to honour it. To wit by the following:Since 1975, our governments have decreased the use of our Bank of Canada to hold Canada’s debt. Result? A dramatic increase of unnecessary interest paid. In 1975 the total federal debt was $37 billion. By the year 2000 it was $585 billion. This dramatic increase was due to borrowing money from foreign and domestic banks at market rates of interest, rather than borrowing from our own Bank of Canada at nominal rates of interest, the payment of which come back into government coffers as dividends.

This is because the interest on the principal charged by the central bank was never created with the money that was originally lent out.The results of this trap were illustrated in the conclusions of Ronald Reagan’s Grace Commission: “100% of what is collected is absorbed solely by interest on the Federal Debt ... all individual income tax revenues are gone before one nickel is spent on the services taxpayers expect from government.” The system literally depends on the creation of ever greater debt loads in perpetuity, and if new borrowers cannot be enticed into taking out loans, the whole economy collapses — leaving the bankers in control of everything (plus interest).”

    Thursday, February 14, 2008“In 2003, during the height of the predatory lending crisis, the OCC invoked a clause from the 1863 National Bank Act to issue formal opinions preempting all state predatory lending laws, thereby rendering them inoperative. The OCC also promulgated new rules that prevented states from enforcing any of their own consumer protection laws against national banks. The federal government's actions were so egregious and so unprecedented that all 50 state attorneys general, and all 50 state banking superintendents, actively fought the new rules.”

By March 1930, the Scullin Government desperately required the assistance of the Bank of England to meet its financial commitments in London, which primarily took the form of an annual interest bill of around 25 million pounds on a combined Australian government debt in London of over 525 million pounds(Pg 3)...........One of the Banks prime functions as a central bank was to supervise the smooth functioning of the British financial system. Following the war, and inspired by Montague Norman, its interests expanded beyond the City of London to include the economic reconstruction of Europe and the encouragement of the creation of central banks, both there and in the British Dominions.”(Pg 6)

By March 1930, the Scullin Government desperately required the assistance of the Bank of England to meet its financial commitments in London, which primarily took the form of an annual interest bill of around 25 million pounds on a combined Australian government debt in London of over 525 million pounds(Pg 3)...........One of the Banks prime functions as a central bank was to supervise the smooth functioning of the British financial system. Following the war, and inspired by Montague Norman, its interests expanded beyond the City of London to include the economic reconstruction of Europe and the encouragement of the creation of central banks, both there and in the British Dominions.”(Pg 6)

Lending was still to be a private banking function, but lending deposited long-term savings money, not created credits. In this way they’d restrict an unstable practice known as borrowing short and lending long – making long term loans with short term deposits. Some variations proposed this be done through mutual fund-like mechanisms, or by chartering entirely new types of banks.”

  13. http://monies.cc/forum/actions/precedence.htm Public Credit Henry Kerby House of Commons 1964 – Great historical content, the exact same question applies to the International Labour Movement today:“It follows that the power of Parliament in general, and especially with regard to Money is non-existent, and all true sovereignty is in the hands of those private individuals who issue all money and determine its value and distribution. If even the State borrows from them, having abandoned its own powers of coinage (emission) to private financiers, how can that State claim to be truly sovereign? The real basis of the power of the money-creators and money-lenders lies in the fact that few know the truth about this financial "hidden hand.".........It is the claim of Socialist leaders that theirs is not the Party of the Big Money Men. The test is this: will Labour understand that the "nationalization" of the power of coinage (emission) is the supreme necessity? And not the confiscation of the fruits of many peoples' labour and invention.”

Labour wants to rebalance the economy by improving the relative competitiveness of our export sector, both internally relative to other sectors and internationally relative to our competitors.“David Parker said Labour would not undermine the independence of the Reserve Bank --- “we believe the bank should independently manage both financial stability and price stability” --- and would not go soft on inflation.

The Bankers own the Earth. Take it away from them, but leave them the power to create deposits, and with the flick of the pen, they will create enough deposits, to buy it back again. However, take it away from them, and all the great fortunes like mine will disappear, and they ought to disappear, for this would be a happier and better world to live in. But if you wish to remain the slaves of Bankers, and pay the cost of your own slavery, let them continue to create deposits."

The history of the IMF and its sister organisations since the break down of the Bretton Woods system has unfortunately been one were short term self interest has overridden long term wisdom. That this has now apparently been recognised can not alter the unfortunate history of the years since 1971.”
    page 109;
    “Following the second oil shock in 1979 the volume of petro-dollars increased but the position of the non oil developing countries began to look less attractive, particularly as some of the new industries that were being developed found that when they came on stream their products, and steel was an example, were facing, protectionist barriers in their natural markets in the wealthy industrialised countries, in some cases the very countries that had provided the loans to build the plants.”
    page 153;
    “The international institutions must be reformed with a mandate that fits the needs of the 1980s and into the 21st century. The immediate debt crisis must be dealt with, not as a bale out of either the heavily indebted countries or commercial banks but as a means of averting the collapse of the worlds financial system with a resulting world wide depression such as we have not had since the 1930s, a depression from which no countries economy would be immune.”
    JIM BOLGER NZ PRIME MINISTER
    Address by Jim Bolger NZ Prime Minister post-budget breakfast 1996 Wellington town hall:
    “There’s been much debate in the political arena on the issue of economic sovereignty. All New Zealanders want to know that their sovereignty is secure and this will certainly be reinforced by the knowledge that government net foreign debt is forecast to be nil at the end of the 1996/97 year, so we will no longer be beholden to the gnomes of Zurich and elsewhere…………Incredibly the Labour Party stated yesterday that the tax cuts are irresponsible. I totally disagree. Ordinary working New Zealanders in my view deserve a tax cut and will get one starting 1 July this year. All this strong, positive, economic news which has caused excitement and admiration around the world is of course up for grabs at the election in 20 weeks time. Put bluntly, the risk is that the recent very successful economic performance will collapse if irresponsible coalitions seek to outbid each other to see who can spend the surplus first and force New Zealand back down the dreary path of debt, higher interest costs and loss of sovereignty to international bankers once more.”

    “The arguments in favour of financial deregulation had been going on for sometime. In 1966 a report published by the Monetary and Economics Council recommended financial reforms to improve competition and efficiency. By the time Labour was elected in July 1984 most of the work to enable a float to be put into practice had been done years before by officials in the Reserve Bank and Treasury. We did not need to spend time, as we did on aspects of tax reform, working out the detail. Government and the bureaucrats knew what had to be done.”
