Telegraph: US interest rate rise could trigger global debt crisis

Could? Well, I suppose so. In the same sense that taking drugs away from an addict is likely to trigger a “drugs crisis.”

If you don’t know, the entire financial world is on tenterhooks right now waiting for the latest declaration from the Federal Reserve, or as David Stockman puts it, the financial politburo. Will they raise rates or won’t they? Look to the skies. Stare into the crystal ball. What will the masters of the universe do? We, those who do not reside on Mount Olympus, can only wait, and fear/hope/whatever. (We are supposed to be a free market economy I thought. Why do we have these guys setting the price of money arbitrarily? I mean I know why. People want to believe in the cult. But seriously, in the 21st Century, why should we?)

If the Fed does raise rates it will be an historic moment for sure. We’ve been at 0% interest rates for almost a decade. It will likely freak world markets out even more than they are already.

Dow futures skid 500 points as Wall Street preps for steep selloff

China down 8.5% FOR THE DAY. Europe down broadly, 3-4% on huge volume. And on Bloomberg everyone is asking, why?

Why? Because China (just China?) is in deep trouble. Because the Chinese central bank has intervened big time and has failed. The market has overwhelmed a large central bank and that is new.

I’m guessing that there were more than a few meetings at the Federal Reserve over the weekend.

August is supposed to be quiet.

New attempt to conquer Europe: France’s Hollande Proposes Creation of Euro-Zone Government

Napoleon tried to do it. Hitler tried to do it. Both failed. Europe in the post medieval era has never been fully conquered. Europe has remained multiple states. Given that it is a continent defined by mountain ranges, peninsulas, and islands this makes sense. It is a landmass of cul-de-sacs. It is not a vast plain which is easily overrun. But now the eurocrats (many unelected) are trying to take over Europe via administrative means.

The goal is a “United States of Europe,” but don’t be fooled. This USE is not a democratic endeavor, as the recent subjugation of Greece shows. It is about domination and coercion.

As Nigel Farage head of the United Kingdom Independence Party said recently a USE would be more like the USSR than the USA.*

Nigel Farage Destroys EU Group-Think: “There’s A New Berlin Wall… And It’s Called The Euro” (Video)

Farage addresses Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras personally on the floor of the European Parliament and encourages the leader, and it appears that Tsipras is a leader, to exit the Eurozone “with (his) head held high.”

Indeed there are many “friends of Greece” around the world. More friends than Goldman Sachs, that’s for sure. Though Goldman’s friends tend to be more powerful.

Greece, pull an Iceland.

Swindle Alert: How To Spot The Fed’s Impending Bailout Of Europe

How does the Fed get dollars to European banks when said banks run out of dollars in which to do dollar denominated business? Print some new ones, then have the euro banks swap euros for the new dollars. A little of this. A little of that. And presto, mini euro-bailout. (Or maybe not so mini depending on the circumstances.)

Liberland: A new libertarian country in Eastern Europe?

This is interesting. Taxes are optional. No army. Only the voluntary exchange of goods and services. A pretty cool flag. Liberland expects 100,000 applications for citizenship by next week.

One can view the new country’s official website HERE.

(From Time)

Vit Jedlicka, a member of the conservative Party of Free Citizens in the Czech Republic, is the self-appointed president of Liberland, which he says sits on unclaimedterra nullius territory wedged between Serbia and Croatia. The 3 sq. mi. “country,” where taxes are optional and a military is nonexistent, does not “interfere with the territory” of the two states, according to Liberland’s website.

“The objective of the founders of the new state is to build a country where honest people can prosper without being oppressed by governments making their lives unpleasant through the burden of unnecessary restrictions and taxes,” reads a statement announcing the creation of the new country this week. The country’s motto is: “To live and let live.”
