Bill Buckler: "Sovereign Debt Can Never Be Repaid"

Tyler Durden's picture





 

The following extract from Bill Buckler's latest Privateer Report hits at the heart of the current systemic collapse, and is thus presented without commentary.

Sovereign Debt Can NEVER Be Repaid

Wherever you live in the world, you are pushing a huge rock uphill. You and I live in a world whose money, markets and financial system is TOTALLY dependent on the debt issued by government. In any form of rational economic definition, a debt is a deferred and therefore an UNFINISHED transaction. It cannot be completed until the principal plus interest incurred in its issuance have been repaid in full - and in money which retains the purchasing power of that which was borrowed to incur the debt.

No government debt has ever been or can ever be repaid in full. This is especially the case when a government imposes a monopoly on what can be used as money by passing and enforcing “legal tender” laws. The US did this with the introduction of the Fed in 1913. Eventual default becomes an absolute certainty when government makes its own debt paper the ONLY “reserve” behind the “money” it alone can create. The US did this under President Nixon in 1971. The whole world went along with it because the US Dollar was the reserve currency and no government or people anywhere dared jettison it.

The result is the global financial quagmire we see everywhere we look.

If there is going to be any progress towards a REAL solution to this mess, a necessary step is the recognition that governments MUST live within their means. Any social entity which must monopolise the use of force as a pre-requisite for its existence CANNOT be allowed to use that force to augment its power. That is what government debt always does, until the day comes when it collapses in ruins.

Nice try, but you clearly do not see the whole picture as I do.

 

You are all throwing stones at Bernanke, but he is doing what he is supposed to do. It will work, this 'monetization', as people call is just a couple of transactions between the Fed and the Treasury. We will see Bernanke as Time's person of the year again and all you fools, we be holding your worthless gold and silver.

No, many here clearly do not see as you do --- because we have chosen to use our reason in combination with lessons and analogies drawn from history, and more importantly, to remove the blinders that so many continue to willingly wear after years of being subjected to relentless State propaganda and establishment-instilled conformity.

You, on the other hand, appear content to parrot the self-serving talking points and lies of the power elite --- or to have an agenda here which demands you to do so.

Based on your posts, you hope that the FED will eventually manage to survive somehow. At the same time, it is obvious that you accept the fact that they are commiting fraud to achieve that.

You accept that the financial system must be saved even by fraudulent means.

Is this the world you want to live in? Do you have any integrity? Do you think this is justifiable? I doubt it. Tell us the truth on what motivates you to be posting these things.

With regularity there appears a poster (some say a 'troll') in the comments
that fits your style to a tee.

I'm hard pressed to think it other than one person.

Nevertheless, rather than debating you, I say fine, go invest in treasuries,
30 year bonds no less (backed by the full faith & credit of the US gov'ment).

And go long in the stock market while you're at it. Suit yourself.

There's a line from an old  Bob Dylan song that comes to mind:

"and time will tell, just who has failed, an whose been left behind, when you go your way and I go mine"

RNR, I have met many an individual (almost always you and liberal) who, like you think that we have evolved, that this time is different, we are smarter now, the government is run by intelligent people who will solve the problems. They believe that the problems of the past empires/states is irrelevant.

What you fail to acknowledge is that while things and processes have evolved, human nature remains a constant. Man still longs for power, wealth (=power), and dominion (=power). In a democratic republic, at some point, politicians pander to major groups (corporations or unions) with money to influence elections. They promise the world to the people, and it results in a debt ponzi that has no option but to fail eventually.

Gold and silver, like human nature remain the same. Paper money always fails due to debt. This time will be no different. It may be in 2011, it may be in 2021, but at some point the music will stop and there will be far too few chairs to sit in.

How can one have faith in the government when everything they have given us has provne to fail under expenses and debts (or at least be unsustainable): social security, medicare, post office, etc. BTW, if you think that social security has not failed already consider that it was meant to be tax free and you get your money back when you retire. Then it became part of the general fund (no real money in accounts). Then it was taxed at 50%, then 85%. Soon I suspect it will be subject to means-testing. That is a fail. Rely on the government for your future at your peril.

The significance of this is that every nation will be burdened more and more with interest rate payments on that debt. Gradually, the interest rates will climb, as public services are gutted more and more, until finally there is nothing left except paying the banks and their wealthy creditors their yields for doing nothing. All the surplus capital will be sucked out of the economy until this version of "capitalism" collapses.

Wrong. This opinion is one of people who consider the markets as ethereal entities, detached from physical reality, that operate under unvariant laws.

Which is blatantly wrong. Markets are physical people with various vested interests.

Just check the amount of money borrowed by the US, the size of debt and the interests rate paid on.

It is totally conform to the very fact that money has to be lent somewhere in a debt based economy (which is by the fact imposed by the agent of transaction named money, which is debt)

As money has to be lent somewhere, the least 'worse' (if you allow me that) place will always be offered preferential rates on any new amount of money that is lent.

Check back in ten years, twenty years to see that the service on the debt will match the capacity of this place to  pay, no matter the size of the debt and how much is borrowed. It will never go beyond because money must be lent.

Markets are not ethereal entities.

Your point is true for new debt.  But there is still a risk with existing debt.  While rates on new debt adjust to our ability to pay, existing debt is fixed to maturity and must be serviced.  Maybe there is some foresight, after all, from the US gvmt to migrate to shorter maturity?

Unless we see massive and global debt default, I think we're entering  period where rates will stay in a very narrow range indefinitely.  Gone are the days of wild swings from 2 to 10%.  We'll see the same effect with smaller swings as total debt increases.  The system is dynamic and the rate of change is more important than nominal value.

Sigh...When will Americans wake up, and understand that the Rothschilds own their asses, and are doing so through indebtedness? I laugh when Tyler Durden wrings his hands about the USFED going broke printing money, that he says can't be funded, what a joke! The Rothschilds are funding the printing presses, and in doing so are swapping their otherwise worthless quadrillions of USD for hard assets. The Rothschilds were worth 4 billion in 1850, AND HAVE NEVER, EVER HAD A BAD YEAR. Take that 4 billion, index it to inflation, and hey presto it's 4 QUADRILLION today. Now add the other QUADRILLIONS they have made by printing and leasing money to the Governments of the world via their central banks for decades, and they can go on printing and in turn swapping dollars for assets via debt purchase, they are not worried about gold, silver, oil, because they are buying the producers of these commodities.

So what are they concerned about? A: Any part of the world they don't already own.

To all the Elitist supporting Trolls that are junking this post, we, the people know who really owns the NYFED/USFED:


Chart of who "owns" the Federal Reserve

 

Chart 1

 

Federal Reserve Directors: A Study of Corporate and Banking Influence

Published 1976

Chart 1 reveals the linear connection between the Rothschilds and the Bank of England, and the London banking houses which ultimately control the Federal Reserve Banks through their stockholdings of bank stock and their subsidiary firms in New York. The two principal Rothschild representatives in New York, J. P. Morgan Co., and Kuhn,Loeb & Co. were the firms which set up the Jekyll Island Conference at which the Federal Reserve Act was drafted, who directed the subsequent successful campaign to have the plan enacted into law by Congress, and who purchased the controlling amounts of stock in the Federal Reserve Bank of New York in 1914. These firms had their principal officers appointed to the Federal Reserve Board of Governors and the Federal Advisory Council in 1914. In 1914 a few families (blood or business related) owning controlling stock in existing banks (such as in New York City) caused those banks to purchase controlling shares in the Federal Reserve regional banks. Examination of the charts and text in the House Banking Committee Staff Report of August, 1976 and the current stockholders list of the 12 regional Federal Reserve Banks show this same family control.

The head of the Bank of England since 1973, Sir Gordon Richardson, Governor of the Bank of England (controlled by the House of Rothschild) was chairman of J. Henry Schroder Wagg and Company of London from 1963-72, and director of J. Henry Schroder,New York and Schroder Banking Corporation,New York,as well as Lloyd's Bank of London, and Rolls Royce. He maintains a residence on Sutton Place in New York City, and as head of "The London Connection," can be said to be the single most influential banker in the world.

5 years ago I regarded posts such as yours as 'out there',
tin hat conspiriacy stuff.

Then came 2008, and TARP (as in, twice voted on...each time the public was wildly against it.... and yet it passed). That was surely a WTF, rubicon moment for me.

It was as if there was this unseen power behind the scenes controlling things.
A force that said to  congress.... "your first TARP vote wasn't 'right'...

DON'T FORGET WHO OWNS YOU ...now go back and vote again till you get it right".

 

Everything I've read and observed since in the US and Europe merely corroborates
this.

No matter what... in the end we find that the politicians ALWAYS move to
save the ultra wealthy from taking the slightest haircut on their equity
in the big banks and the outstanding bonds.

We find the US and EU central banks backing the big banks without fail.
I mean... completely, implicitly, without fail. Support the big banks.... and the
hell with everything/everyone else.

We've seen politicans such as Obama campaign as one thing, and yet once
elected turn out to be this 'manchurian candidate' serving Dubaya's 3rd term.

In sciences such as Astro-Physics you have folks who observe and postulate
based on prior knowledge and their observations. And so it goes with
current economics and politics.

Educating myself and observating the politics and the economy in action lead me to a belief in things such as banking cabals. Banking families. The insidious nature of the Fed.

Think about it...the power to create money from nothing!

In fact, a government given monopoly on the creation of money.
And the world's reserve currency to boot.
All without any effective auditing.
With Congress, the President and Regulators giving cover.

What a scam, what a crime.

Exactly who controls the Fed?
Why does Jamie Dimon sit on the NY Fed Board? Isn't that an outrageous
conflict of interest.

Why is the Fed setting fiscal policy for the US States and why aren't they
fully AUDITED by an impeciably impartial independent enity each and every year?

And why the hell hasn't there been a Gold audit since the Eisenhower
administration (and even that one was half-assed).

Reason? That debt was assumed by another government, not Mao's!!!!

The only thing that matters is the interest payments, whether it comes from the sweat and blood of the taxpayer or from QE.  You then take the interest payments and buy real assets of any imaginable class - who cares about the principal, just keep that money train coming.  Money for nothing and the assets are FREE - wish I had that racket!

It isn't unthinkable - because Rome did it, France did it, Germany did it, the Confederate States did it, etc., etc., etc.  That it happens all the time is the very point of this article - and we are not immune from the laws of either history or economics.

We all know it is not sustainable but it is yet to define how unsustainable it is, i.e. the timing when the system collapses.

It had taken 4 years for the Mississippi Bubble to burst, how long it will take for a globalized paper scheme to burst? 40 years from 1971?

Perhaps some parameters may be monitored and some milestone events can be made reference, for example, when central banks started to monetize its debts. Yet the exact timing can never be known until it happens, just as Greenspan said a bubble cannot be really identified until it bursted.

Internet conspiracy theorists (and perhaps with sone NWO double agents) used to point at 2012 as the NWO propaganda. Sadly mass mindset programming and seek of truth are entangled together and cannot be separated. People know more but being programmed that it WILL HAPPEN (in some way). This is probably the order out of chaos as planned by the elites.

"on in 1971."The whole world went along with it because the US Dollar was the reserve currency and no government or people anywhere dared jettison it”  HOW STUPID.  The U.S. had no choice:

The Korean War, which began in June, 1950, initiated the chronic balance of payments deficits that persist to this time and which will probably continue as long as foreigners are willing to increase their net investments in this country. 

The U.S. had a net liquidity deficit in every year since 1950 (with the exception of 1957), up to 1976 (when the private sector contributed its first trade deficit ). These deficits were entirely the consequence of excessive U.S. government (Pentagon) unilateral transfers to foreigners (re: foreign policy – solely our far flung military bases and personnel). 

During all this time the private sector was running a surplus in all accounts: merchandise, services and financial. The Vietnam Ten-year War administered the coup d’etat to our gold bullion standard.  By 1968, in an effort to keep the dollar at the $35 par, we had exhausted nearly two thirds of our monetary gold stocks, or approximately 700 million ounces to about 260 million ounces.

Yes, Mr. Cole you are correct. The Central Banks have known for quite some time the true value of gold in today's paper world. In a very real sense they are on our side. Let's take their side if you will. They are not dumb or stupid, in fact many of them are the best of the best! You see, the world grew up and ran away from them, totally out of control. It has left in it's wake a money system of colossal debt and political mismanagement. They know it is over.

Good start to your essay, but the end is a bit abrupt.  We need more thinking through of the end game instead of "until the day comes when it collapses in ruins".   That's pretty vague.   What is it step-by-step?   Newt's state bankruptcy law will be a good move in this economic chess mega MMO game, as it would unlock the stranglehold the unions' contracts have over the states.  Argentina defaulted not too long ago.   It is not in ruins.  Need some precise vocab and clear vision to get through this individually, as a family unit, as a community, as a nation, as a planet.

This sovergin debt issue is a bit of a bore as this is the worlds money supply for better or worse and cannot nor should be repaid in this present monetory system - however the debts in the shadow banking system are far higher and yet this does not add or decrease the money supply.

Wipe out bank bonds and count derivatives as null and void and without foundation and then come back to me about goverment debt , not before.

I happen to have U.S. government coins that were minted before 1913 so I could give them to the government to help them with their money problems. The coins only say $20 on them so they probably would help pay back a little of the money they owe on all the important stuff they've spent it on.

Not exactly accurate.  Continental dollars, with a value of about 5 cents on the dollar were redeemed at full value by the first congress.  There was about 40 million held by US investors and 20 million held by foreigners. 

Madisons plan was to reimburse the orignal owners at par, but Hamilton and his cronies wanted the current owners of the notes to be compensated at face value.   It has been insinuated that Hamilton and his buddies had a pretty good idea that Congress would redeem the notes and sucked up as many discounted Continentals as possible.   They could have taught GS a few things about insider trading.

Don't know the source of funds used for redeeming the Continental Dollars - probably issued debt

This got me thinking and then I remembered from Will and Ariel Durant's The Story of Civilization the passage where the creation of national debt was mentioned...hadn't read it in years, but found it and there it was, in 1693 the British government needed more money than revenues would allow and so floated a bond issue returning 7%.  Then I checked at the UK government's web site and found that from that day to this, Britain has never been out of debt.  Not even for a day!

This guy is right - national debt never gets paid off.  Well, until now - we really must force balanced budgets and debt repayment on government.

ROFL

Don't forget Federal Reserve and Nixon in 1971 in a fascist cooperation with the Queen of England and her imperialist monetarist Inter-Alpha Group.

It was a bankster's plan to corner the market BEFORE this started.  Looks like they did. 

Just like we all knew what they were going to do after they repealed glass-steagall.  I still remember on of my gov't teachers (~1995) explaining how within 10 years after repeal, we'd have ourselves a repeat of the great depression.  *and that the big goal, even known then, was to repeal glass-steagall and set this chain into motions...believing they knew different this time".  Yep, it was pretty obvious, even then we were going to needlessly go down this fascist imperial monetarist path.

So, get rid of the debt, especially since most of it is fraudulent, or due to monetary ideological mistakes.  Then use what's freed up on things we actually need that supply siders have been holding out on us about for the last few generations.

NAWAPA (aka the Parsons project....expanded)

Nuclear Power

Fusion

Mag-lev

Fixed exchange rates under a new Bretton Woods style America Credit (hamiltonian) system

Single Payer healthcare under hill-burton standard

Space program

But the dumbass author still believes that when he says 'within his means', he means what is told to him as outputted by the same monetarists BULLSHIT metrics. this is the part where Austrian school shows it's fascist colors. they still use all the same measurements as keynes, they just believe in a different prescription.  No spending.

In other words, living within your means monetary style is completely different than living within your means without monetarism.Too bad the only thing we are presented with, is monetarism.  Krugman or ron paul, same monetarist bullshit, and thus bullshit expectations.

With monetarism you'll never get NAWAPA, Nuclear power, fusion, or any of what we really need.

With monetarism 'living within your means', you'll get collapse, because there is no real Austrian school of thought, it's just a means for the group on top, to impose fascism to save themselves, at least temporarily.

So just remember when it comes to 'living within your means', make sure your definition, isn't that of a monetarist.  Because then, it's completely bullshit, (and thus any ideas you spawn of said ridiculous monetarist ideology) and doesn't give you any good info, including probably tell you to be cheap, when you need to spend.  But that's monetarism.  Pennywise and pound foolish. 

Your enemy is monetarism, whether expressed in fascist; austrian, or keynesian terms.
