Busted: Bankers and The Global Economy

July 26, 2010

Plague of Home Foreclosures in U.S. Continues

The miraculous recovery that has been proffered by the Banking Elite hasn’t happened. Central Bankers and Wall Street profiteers believed that they could continue to operate with wild speculation while reaping the results and encouraging more of the same. The financial wizards have not proved their financial literacy. Their speculative downfall started with bundling speculative instruments tied to U.S. housing debt that never should have happened to begin with. Hundreds of thousands, maybe millions, of Americans bought homes that never really qualified. The hot market was bolstered until the superheated financial bubble burst, leaving a worldwide recession based on what amounts to Wall Street gambling on highly leveraged contracts that have bankrupted the system. The reality is that the problem isn’t with foreclosures themselves, but with the bundled securities and expected profits that are tied to the failing mortgages. No doubt, these securities have been packaged and sold dozens of times even though they are worth nothing now.

More than three years into a U.S. housing crisis that started a worldwide recession, home foreclosures continue to further the devaluation of the U.S. economy. The waves of foreclosures no longer come from sub-prime loans that have defaulted. Foreclosures come from formerly respectable borrowers that have lost their jobs in an impoverished and drained economy that no functions to support a nation of hard-working Americans, but functions only to serve the Banking Elite.

In the first half of 2010, more than 1.6 million U.S. properties are in the midst of foreclosure filings, which include bank repossessions, default notices and auction sale notices. This is an 8 percent increase from the first half of 2009 which puts the United States on target to reach 3 million filings this year. These numbers show the fragile state of housing and real estate investment, which has been decimated. Government programs have been ineffective at stopping the national hemorrhage. Little has changed except that more Americans are living in rentals, with friends and family, in tents or on the streets, depending on their financial fortunes.

The U.S. government and banking profiteers built a house of cards on the idea that the cost of housing would always rise and that the profits would never cease. After massive bailouts, they are still stuck without a financial course to chart and exploit, beyond tapping government bailouts. The Federal Reserve holds trillions in useless notes and obligations in the hope that someday they will be worth more than the paper they are printed on. The economy continues to spiral downward despite limited attempts by big money multinationals to bolster the market.

Corporate multinationals and banking bigshots aren’t here as charities. They demand to make money for shareholders. For decades they have profited from U.S. tax law and from the backs of manufacturing slaves in the third-world. Now they seek to hold the bottom line and to keep their organizations alive. Now they are cannibalizing inept governments to sustain themselves. Stagnation is preferable to loss as the United States becomes the new third-world in their great plan to level the national playing field through globalization. Welcome to the brave new world of globalism, where everyone is equal except for the corporate oligarchy.

It isn’t pretty, but is pretty much as advertised.

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.

Central Bankers Sound Alarm Over Food Prices

Soaring food prices are helping to push up inflation all around the world, say central bankers. They urge more market competition and free trade to even out prices.

Which came first: the chicken or the egg? In this case, central bankers are not admitting that high food prices are not only caused by tighter supplies but higher inflation is caused by the central bankers themselves. Central bankers, by nature are quiet animals that never point at themselves. In this instance, global inflation has been boosted by the excessive printing of money and overextension of bank credit coupled with the inflation and devaluation of the dollar, which still operates as the tour de force of the global economy.

Global rises in food, energy and other commodity prices (more…)
