THE ECONOMIC CRASH OF 2016 HAS BEGUN

What these financial posts never say is that this collapse has been totally planned – which it has, and for those who don’t understand this, the insanity that appears to be happening on the part of the Federal Reserve is very confusing.  Why have they been behaving this way? The answer can be found here: We Need to Understand the Context for Everything Occurring in the US.

Once you have read this article, all else that you will read will make total sense to you. ~J

NOTE: The markets closed UP today, because oil recovered by a surprising 8%. I haven’t researched the reason for this – if it is even possible to find, but I suspect it might be related to this post:  What We Are Experiencing Now Is The Death Of Fiat Currency: Rob KirbyKirby discusses the secret fund called the Exchange Stabilization Fund that is keeping markets afloat. ~J

The financial crash is already happening and the central banks are visibly panicking, they are now resorting to negative interest rates for the first time!

They strongly believe that with this scheme, the middlemen lenders would be forced to lend more to their clients to spur economic growth. Otherwise, they will be charged for parking their money with the central bank.

Bank of Japan, in a Surprise, Adopts Negative Interest Rate for the First Time

As Japan’s economic doldrums have lingered, its leaders have tried a number of tricks over the years, from increasing government spending to flooding the financial system with cash.

With the global economy looking increasingly fragile, Japan is now taking a more aggressive step by cutting interest rates below zero on Friday.

The policy — which means banks are essentially paying for the privilege of parking their money — represents a last resort for a country that has struggled through a quarter-century of weak growth. In theory, negative rates will push banks to lend more to companies, which would then spend and hire.

The Bank of Japan is following other central banks in going negative on rates, a sign of the continuing global trouble from plummeting low oil prices, stalling international trade and slowing growth in China. Japan’s prime minister, Shinzo Abe, is seeking new ways to break the country’s cycle of decline.”

http://www.nytimes.com/2016/01/30/business/international/japan-interest-rate.html

The importance of Japan’s economy is borne from the fact that it has been feeding the Khazarians’ pocket for almost a century, the most significant of which was during the Second World War, when it raped China of its historical gold bullion and placed it in the Philippines and some other parts in Southeast Asia. The Khazarians then built an industrial empire out of the Asian loot and in the defeated country, while another victim of the Jesuit-sanctioned Japanese military misadventure across Asia, i.e. the Philippines, is supplying the industrial empire with raw materials even up to now.

Yes, the Jesuits controlled both sides of the conflict as they have always been for the last four centuries.

No wonder that, for decades, the West has been buying Japanese consumer products at much lower prices than those made at home. Along the way, the Khazarians still thought it wasn’t enough and so the Fukushima nuclear extortion had to happen resulting in the prime minister then giving out at least $70 billion, or else the rest of the nuclear plants in the country would explode.

Onward to the last three years or so, Japan’s pension fund was also skimmed to keep the Khazarians afloat amidst ongoing international effort to pin them all down, and now Japan is bowing again to the Khazarian diktats of adopting to the Western ongoing trend of imposing negative interest rates, a desperate move proving the true value of the fiat dollar, i.e. nil.

The basic problem is, the bank borrowers know exactly that the central banks are just printing worthless paper money, and countries like China are now restricting the acceptance of fiat dollar effectively halting the delivery of goods worldwide since December last year.

Retail Apocalypse: 2016 Brings Empty Shelves And Store Closings All Across America

By Michael Snyder, on January 31st, 2016

Closed - Public Domain

Closed – Public DomainMajor retailers in the United States are shutting down hundreds of stores, and shoppers are reporting alarmingly bare shelves in many retail locations that are still open all over the country.  It appears that the retail apocalypse that made so many headlines in 2015 has gone to an entirely new level as we enter 2016.  As economic activity slows down and Internet retailers capture more of the market, brick and mortar retailers are cutting their losses.

This is especially true in areas that are on the lower portion of the income scale.  In impoverished urban centers all over the nation, it is not uncommon to find entire malls that have now been completely abandoned.  It has been estimated that there is about a billion square feet of retail space sitting empty in this country, and this crisis is only going to get worse as the retail apocalypse accelerates.

We always get a wave of store closings after the holiday shopping season, but this year has been particularly active.  The following are just a few of the big retailers that have already made major announcements…

-Wal-Mart is closing 269 stores, including 154 inside the United States.

-K-Mart is closing down more than two dozen stores over the next several months.

-J.C. Penney will be permanently shutting down 47 more storesafter closing a total of 40 stores in 2015.

-Macy’s has decided that it needs to shutter 36 stores and lay off approximately 2,500 employees.

-The Gap is in the process of closing 175 stores in North America.

-Aeropostale is in the process of closing 84 stores all across America.

-Finish Line has announced that 150 stores will be shutting down over the next few years.

-Sears has shut down about 600 stores over the past year or so, but sales at the stores that remain open continue to fall precipitously.

But these store closings are only part of the story.

All over the country, shoppers are noticing bare shelves and alarmingly low inventory levels.  This is happening even at the largest and most prominent retailers.

Not only that shelves are going empty across America, in the last few minutes, Nikkei is also reporting that its 10Y Auction is postponed indefinitely due to the same self imposed negative interest rates.

Japanese 10-year bonds Sales to individuals to be called off over negative yields

TOKYO — The planned March sale of 10-year Japanese government bonds through banks to retail investors, municipalities and others will be canceled amid expected below-zero yields following the Bank of Japan’s recent move to adopt negative interest rates.

The Ministry of Finance is expected to announce Wednesday the first-ever decision to call off sales of 10-year JGBs.

The JGBs in question are sold through Japan Post Bank and regional banks in 50,000 yen ($415) units. The holder can cash out this new type of bond ahead of maturity. With the ministry already having suspended sales of two- and five-year instruments, all sales will end. But variable-rate 10-year JGBs for retail investors will still be offered.

Winning bids at the ministry’s auction of 10-year JGBs on Tuesday translated to a record-low average yield of 0.078%. As of Monday, nearly 70% of JGBs on the market already had negative yields, according to the Japan Securities Dealers Association.

Corporations and municipalities have started delaying their own issuances. Daiwa Securities Group has dropped plans to set conditions later this week for the issuance of seven- and 10-year straight bonds this month. The brokerage decided to take a fresh look at JGB yields and investor demand and said it has not decided when to proceed.”

This plummeting integrity of the government’s promissory notes is what defines an economic crash, and Japan is just a mirror of the current Western financial condition that is still in grave denial.

This current predicament is compounded by Saudi’s unilateral massive unloading of petrodollar denominated foreign asset holdings, like so:

“The Saudis selling their stocks in the open market en masse, especially in the first weeks of January, spreading panic all around the world, appears to have seriously displeased another faction of the Masters of the Universe. This faction might eventually let everyone know what the secret Saudi position is in US Treasuries. Remember, we’re talking about at least $8 trillion.

The House of Saud, predictably, is in total panic. Imagine a leak stating they are sitting on $8 trillion while asking the poor in Saudi Arabia for economic “sacrifices” to support their oil price war plus the unwinnable war on Yemen, fought with expensive mercenaries. A global uproar would be inevitable — claiming a freeze on Saudi assets that are being used to destroy world markets. A barely concealed secret is that the House of Saud is not exactly popular in all the crucial places, from Moscow to Washington and Berlin.

The House of Saud cannot possibly believe that the FSB, SVR and GRU deeply love them for trying to destroy Russia; that Texans love them for trying to destroy the shale oil industry; that Germany or Italy love them for dumping a trillion dollars in securities on the markets to crash them as Mario Draghi pumps major QE trying to rescue the eurozone. “

http://sputniknews.com/columnists/20160129/1033920936/saudi-arabia-plays-russian-roulette.html

Saudi is just trying to save its own ass. Here’s why:

Following Russia’s recent acceptance of the renminbi as payments for oil, we expect more record high oil imports ahead to China,” Gordon Kwan, the Hong Kong-based head of regional oil and gas research at Nomura Holdings Inc., said in an e-mail, referring to the Chinese currency. “If Saudi Arabia wants to recapture its number one ranking, it needs to accept the renminbi for oil payments instead of just the dollar.”

As both the head of the Eurasian Economic Union (and founding member of BRICS), as well as a major energy exporter, Russia is leading the charge against the dollar. And now other nations are following suit: Iran and India announced last month that they intend to settle all outstanding crude oil payments in rupees, as part of a joint strategy to dump the dollar and trade instead in national currencies.

http://russia-insider.com/en/politics/saudi-arabia-has-lost-asia-russia-now-chinas-biggest-oil-partner/ri12611

So, what should the Federal Reserve do now that their Saudi friends are leaving their dollar behind in favor of the Chinese Yuan, and their latest pilot testing in Japan is not working?

They just don’t care. In fact, it wouldn’t be too far fetched to conclude that somehow it’s deliberately orchestrated.

The Fed Wants to Test How Banks Would Handle Negative Rates

As interest rates turn negative around the world, the Federal Reserve is asking banks to consider the possibility of the same happening in the U.S.

In its annual stress test for 2016, the Fed said it will assess the resilience of big banks to a number of possible situations, including one where the rate on the three-month U.S. Treasury bill stays below zero for a prolonged period.

“The severely adverse scenario is characterized by a severe global recession, accompanied by a period of heightened corporate financial stress and negative yields for short-term U.S. Treasury securities,” the central bank said in announcing the stress tests last week.”

New York Fed President William Dudley said last month that policy makers were “not thinking at all seriously of moving to negative interest rates.

“But I suppose if the economy were to unexpectedly weaken dramatically, and we decided that we needed to use a full array of monetary policy tools to provide stimulus, it’s something that we would contemplate as a potential action,” he said on Jan. 15.

Fed Vice Chairman Stanley Fischer said Monday that foreign central banks that had resorted to negative interest rates to stimulate their economies had been more successful than he anticipated.

“It’s working more than I can say I expected in 2012,” he told the Council on Foreign Relations in New York. “Everybody is looking at how this works,” he added.

Whatever they want to call it, the fiat financial system is crashing in front of their faces and what they are about to do is just another way of kicking the can one more time, because telling the people the real financial condition would surely put them out of power quickly, or so we believe.

However, and this is what they are counting on, if the Greek reaction to the financial bullying of the Troika is any yardstick, the Khazarian madmen will have no qualms of implementing even harsher “solution” to their crashing empire. In fact, they could even profit from their own defeat from the East with more austerity measures against its own people.

For all practical purposes, street protests don’t work against these psychopaths, in much the same way as one cannot just shout at mosquitoes to repel them. There’s a need to slap them, and slap them hard indeed, for nobody could expect the corrupt and the corrupted to correct themselves without the necessary motivation.

To continue their reign over the multitude they must maintain the entire facade legitimizing the whole fiat enterprise, and already they are laying the groundwork for a cashless society to essentially tie everyone to the computers.

Obviously, with the full digitization of your lifeline they will be able to eliminate privacy and cloaked the true nature of their projected and imaginary power all at the same time. This is the only feasible solution to stay in power and the people will be sold out once again and will continue to have faith in the very system that enslave them.

Understanding this simple truth should empower the victim and the whole fiat enterprise will crumble via non-participation and active counter offensives.

Western populations need not wait for the complete deterioration of their quality of life to the level of the Third World with their apathy.

The East expects the West to clean its own house from all undesirables before a healthy “win-win” collaboration can be expected. The mechanism for this mutual cooperation is already in place.

One of the significant sources of funds for the Nazionist Khazarian Mafia is the healthcare industry which registered a whopping $3.09 trillion in 2014, and is projected to soar to $3.57 trillion in 2017, in the US alone. We believe that this is just a conservative figure.

We can avoid using drugs, defeat any viral attack and scaremongering easily by knowing how to build our own comprehensive antiviral system. Find more about it here.

    My problem with this coverage is that it’s aimed at investors, not “normal” people.
    And it seems that some of these commentators really want a crash to happen. It would confirm, perhaps, their theories of who the “bad guys” are. But what about all those who would suffer if this were to happen?
    There are a lot of people who don’t want it to happen, including many people in power positions and of course many ordinary people. But this coverage isn’t about prevention. It’s all about telling investors to move their money while they still have time. That does no good for the rest of us.
    The truth probably is that a lot of these people have no solutions, feel victimized by the whole situation, and feel pretty apathetic. I don’t need to listen to people like that right now!
    Meanwhile, the people with solutions are not getting any coverage.
    If they are anything like the ones I know, though, they are making plans. And those plans don’t just cover self-preservation. They include some sort of roll-out of an all-new system. There are many who think that until current systems are visibly in a state of collapse, that the perceived need for change will not be great enough to bring any new system into existence.
    The criminals, of course, also have their plans. It has been observed that the collapse of our current system seems to be part of their plans. They also have a replacement system (or do they?) in the offing. I think it is referred to colloquially as “slavery.” In other words, once the system is collapsed, they want to keep it that way. People like the ones I know are hoping this can be avoided.
    At this point, what I really want to say is that, unless this collapse includes a biological disaster of some sort, we will all still be here. (We would still be here even if we died, but not in very good condition.) We are creative beings, capable of caring about each other, organizing activities, taking responsibility, and making things go right. Just because the old system stops running doesn’t mean we can’t get something new up and running in not too much time. It bothers me that we seem so poorly prepared. But not everyone is in that condition. Many of those people who have a better idea of how to move forward in face of a collapse have actually been offering their help to the general population for several decades now; it’s just that only a few have accepted that help. I hope that this will change before things become more desperate. But even if it doesn’t, I believe there are enough who are willing to step in and assist that most of the population would make it through OK.
    I personally have no idea if we are really that close to a full collapse. My guess is that the “slow burn” theory put forward by Catherine Austin Fitts is a more likely scenario. The screaming will continue, but the actual changes will move ahead slowly, thus never generating the awareness shift that might allow the “white hats” to step in and take over.
    What is needed for a positive change to happen is more awareness that a positive change is needed. Big disasters usually don’t result in that awareness. I am sure those who want positive change are trying to find workable ways to catalyze it.

      Larry, I consider myself a normal person, who years ago decided I was going to get beyond the smoke and mirrors of the Financial System. I believe to some extent, everyone must do this; otherwise, they will surely be taken in by this scam. I know you are bright; you demonstrate that every day here on my blog. Why don’t you follow your own inner guidance and start reading? That is what I did. I didn’t take an Economics 101 course, or I would never have gotten there – and then I began to ask questions, lots of them. Why don’t you try it? Are you – and everyone else – willing to be taken in by their scams, lies, and outright stealing of our money? 🙂

      Hugs,

        Hubbard has written extensively on the subject of money and economics, and I have read his materials. I have also read some Henry George and studied much of the research done by this community on the various financial crimes perpetrated by various groups on this planet. I have also studied bookkeeping and know how to make a balance sheet; did it for my church for about 20 years.
        I don’t own any stock in any publicly traded company as far as I know, bank at a credit union, and have partial vesting in an Employee Stock Ownership Program where I work. I use no credit cards. I learned in 1981 that certain persons in the City of London were scheming to control the world through debt, and I took that data seriously.
        What gave you the idea that I was willing to be taken in by their scams, lies and outright stealing?

        • Jean says:

          I thought you said – and I honestly haven’t taken the time to go back and check – that you said you didn’t understadn such things. Please forgive me if I misunderstood 🙂 Hugs, ~Jean
