Busted: Bankers and The Global Economy

Corporate Control through the Digital Economy

The digital economy has become synonymous with the large amount of global data, often blindly called information, that the world creates through life on the internet. Those corporate rustlers in the data storage business are doing very well indeed even though the immediate rewards of this investment remain mostly in the future while the world endures the continuing fallout from a global financial meltdown.

end of advertisingMost of this corporate benefit has been on the backs of corporate slavery in the backrooms and factories of the third-world as the increasing strength of a global corporate fascism grows and concretes influence in the world. Jobs in America and any economic powerhouse have been sold to the lowest bidder, typically overseas by corporate junkets that claim to have your best interests at heart. They have sold you their truth that life is simply about consumption of goods. Live for the moment. Just do it. Obey your thirst. Corporate fascists are there to rake in the profits while that opportunity exists in the hope of building a global society that they can further rule, influence and plunder.

Right after 9/11, George Bush did not instruct Americans to pray or to unite in common purpose in religious temples. Instead, President Bush encouraged America to go out and shop in temples of commerce. America must not allow terrorists to divert the economy that defines ‘our’ society and power. Through that very economic engine and toil, corrupt and cynical corporate executives of financial institutions have plunged the economies of virtually every nation into the tailspin of recession and employment stagnation. This action of corporate fascists has not been truly recognized and they remain in control as never before as the controllers of currency and commerce. They remain central to ongoing efforts to revive the decimated global economy.

Fascist corporatism now defines the world. America and much of the modern world has a fear of any lack of consumption like the global economy is enduring now. We must be convinced that we must buy now and pay later for the very system in place depends on this reality. Even worse, America has come to realize that the rest of the world has been funding this endeavor in recent years as the fever of fascist consumerism broke with the economic overheating. Much of the world and notably most Americans can no longer continue to eat at the trough of ardent consumerism that has been propelled into superstardom over the last several decades. Credit has been maxed out and personal income commandeered by corporate and government fascists as they stoke the temporary delusions of their bottom line.

The human race has turned the space race into the information age of science and technology, an endless storage bin of computer space into which we cast our hopes, dreams and fantasies, even our futures and of course, the corporate bottom line…for better or worse. We are addicted and will be manipulated to meet the needs of the current powers in place or those that reside in the future.

human lobsterIs there any other reason for the expansion of millions of terrabytes of digital power out there? Does home video really make that much money for corporate fascists? Hardly. Do personal blogs hold the purpose of the world? Unlikely. We are simply human lobsters in what will be a boiling pot given enough time. Humans are food for government control and corporate fascists. We haven’t realized the plans of the power structure in place just yet, even as the plans of those in influence continue to evolve and materialize. It is all about the power of psychology and what information global corporates can mine from your life to benefit themselves, their financial structure and to build their future. Google has only begun to mine data from your life. They may well know more about you than you do. Once that data is used to influence and manipulate, advertising and data mining achieve their pinnacle of success in the name of convenience and customer service.

The American miracle of the internet now holds the building blocks of a new global economy and global manipulation that has never been seen before. The ‘new fascists’ proclaim innovation in technology and processes with the idea of world domination for their own good. The rights of the individual mean nothing in the grand scheme. The small businessman must be crushed or controlled by higher powers. You are simply a means to their end: record profits and control of the market at any cost. The internet will be their social tool. The digital economy is an expansion of the human third-world flesh factory as billions of human lives continue to pour into a global mechanism of control and manipulation.

Krugman: Falling Wages and a Recovery

Paul Krugman makes some excellent points:

So what should we conclude from the growing evidence of sagging wages in America? Mainly that stabilizing the economy isn’t enough: we need a real recovery.

But the unemployment rate is almost certainly still rising. And all signs point to a terrible job market for many months if not years to come — which is a recipe for continuing wage cuts, which will in turn keep the economy weak.

To break that vicious circle, we basically need more: more stimulus, more decisive action on the banks, more job creation.

Credit where credit is due: President Obama and his economic advisers seem to have steered the economy away from the abyss. But the risk that America will turn into Japan — that we’ll face years of deflation and stagnation — seems, if anything, to be rising.

The Falling Wage Syndrome by Paul Krugman

Inflation-adjusted American wages have remained ‘stagnant’ since 1975 but the cost of living has steadily increased. This contributes to the use of credit, the nation’s current plight regarding credit slavery and the high prices of market goods, notably automobiles. The recovery of the auto industry, for example, depends on moving cars and trucks. The problem remains in high prices versus wages of Americans. Houston: we have a problem.

In a review of the Census Bureau’s Historical Income Tables, the truth is not stagnation in an actual sense.  For example, the median income for white men fell nearly 10% between 1974 and 1982. The income for the same group climbed 15% from 1982 to 2007. Income for women increased only slightly between 1974 and 1982 and actually fell slightly for blacks during the same period. Meanwhile costs and expenses spiraled out of control at an annual average inflation rate hovering around 10%, fostered by runaway spending created by credit.

Some argue that wages have increased by 40% since the 1970’s. A recent study by the Federal Reserve Bank of Minneapolis discovered that wages for the average American worker went up by 20 percent between 1975 and 2005. However, one cannot accept the current 3% inflation rate pushed by the Federal Reserve and the federal government as fact. Assuming an average 10% inflation rate which is closer to truth, neither 20% or 40% hold a candle to the real and hidden inflation rate. Given a median inflation rate of 10%, you are looking a loss of buying power at a staggering 100% every ten years instead of a professed 30% reduction in buying power. Now you know where the problem really is. Inflation is not our friend. Living on predatory and usurious credit has come at great cost to the entire globe. The bottom line is that a liberal fractional reserve that has allowed runaway credit is truly responsible for the current plight of global financial malaise. The current mindset continues that monetary credit is the answer to the global meltdown. The actions of central bankers continue to dilute the value of the dollar as global currency.

United Nations wants in on Economic Authority

As the world basks in turmoil of a global financial crisis and proposals of special summits by various world leaders, the United Nations has offered French President Nicolas Sarkozy the U.N. headquarters in New York access and use of their facilities for an international summit. Not long ago, the European Union and Sarkozy sought out U.S. President George Bush. The resulting insider news is that George Bush will be sponsoring a global economic summit in hopes of responding better to the crisis. Sarkozy has appealed to prime economic world leaders to act aggressively and in unity to address the economic meltdown at a summit by December.

The United States has been somewhat hesitant to initiate many of financial policies that some European Union leaders are eager for and relunctant to get involved with the U.N. and Europe. Instead, the Bush administration is working feverishly to put out the nation’s economic fires and to deal with them successfully behind the scenes.

What does the United Nations say? The United Nations considers itself as “the symbol of multilateralism.” U.N. leadership believes that it holds the keys to a universal legitimacy to the endeavor to “demonstrate a collective will to face this serious global challenge.” The United Nations needs the good publicity and a way to wield global influence as well. What better way wield influence than to sponsor a global economic summit in a time when the world scene looks so dark?

Sarkozy is calling to overhaul the global financial system so that it can be better supervised in the wake of the crisis. “Together we need to rebuild a capitalism that is more respectful to man, more respectful to the planet, more respectful to future generations and be finished with a capitalism obsessed by the frantic search for short-term profit.” Those seem to be poetic words for a hurting world that is seeking solace and security from a global debacle wrought by speculation and greed. What will national leaders give up to secure a better future in the eyes of politicians and global economists? The future of currency systems seems to be in question now with some “new ideas” that are likely to be presented. ~ E. Manning

Central Banking Works Fine

Filed under: central bank, federal reserve, money — Tags: , , , , , , , , — digitaleconomy @ 12:25 pm

In this brilliantly back-patting and self-aggrandizing speech by Fed Vice-Chairman Kohn, he admits that there is little that needs to be done to maximize the profitability of central banking. That is most certainly true. The central banking power block has the world exactly where it wants: in control and draining the economies of the world for its’ own corporate profit. Am I being unkind? My apologies. I am calling this the way it is.

Monetary policy should be able to adjust quickly to such changes; agreements that must be renegotiated can tie policymakers’ hands.” Don’t tie up your hands with obligations or agreements. Be free. It’s all about performance and bringing in that currency and gold to the vaults of International Banking.

China Government Financing Antsy

China Eview Week 1/31/08

In my research I have noticed that China, like most countries, often denies bad news before it hits even when that news is already in action. So it is not surprising that when the press started talking about China being hit with huge subprime debt that the China government leaned on their commercial banks and cooled their heels briefly. Two days ago, with what the news said and with what China denied last week, they readily admitted one of their commercial banks had huge losses. I have no doubt that with a nation full of greenbacks and a booming economy, the Chinese have plenty that could be invested in the ailing world banking system. The Chinese are taking care of themselves first. Now China is rounding up their gold and putting the eye of scrutiny on gold shipments and travel of any gold-based product. Since the government and central banking relationship is different than in most countries, the Chinese are protecting what they have. The Chinese are cautious and as the second leading gold producer, don’t plan on letting the gold leave the country without good cause and without their knowledge. The Chinese government knows that when the rubber meets the road, the fiat currency of the central bank doesn’t have the strength and power of gold. Unlike the United States, the Chinese aren’t going to willingly give all their wealth away to the bankers or to large corporations. ~ E.M.
