Why? Why would anyone buy that worthless paper?

I can understand wanting to lower your own currency, but why on earth would they exchange their own currency for one which they have no way of competing with, in terms of speed of debasement?

If I was a CB'er, I'd sell my own currency and buy Gold/Silver (, bitches).

"Why? Why would anyone buy that worthless paper?"

Buy 'stuff' instead of USD's and you're only getting half the 'bang' for your currency devaluing buck. If you can up the other guys at the same time as downing yours, it's better than just downing yours.

True. And wouldn't gold/silver purchases in some measure improve a country's financial position, thereby partially strengthening its currency and offsetting the intended devaluation? From the competitive devaluation perspective, you get the most bang for your peso by flooding the world with your paper and removing dollars at the same time.

Fri, 10/08/2010 - 12:30 | 635531 EscapeKey

My point, though, was that even though you remove Dollars, Uncle Ben's Express can print them far faster than you can buy them, and hence make whatever you just bought entirely worthless.

If, however, you bought Gold/Silver, you might have to print twice as much of your own currency to lower its value, but at least you get something for it.

As with all your other comments I have read, I find nothing offensive about your observation.

It's when someone draws a false conclusion based on that kind of information that it may become inflammatory.

Personally, I do not look for justice in this world. Maybe I look for a little law from time to time, but my experience is it's dispensed bent as often as it is straight.

In the meantime I don't mind being anybody's fool as long as I can get my licks in.

Personally I very rarely junk. Usually for profanity. If that makes me the thought police, sobeit. A lot of people here are just stretching their lungs and let it all hang out. Me too a lot of the time. But there is a line and if you don't see it, too bad for you.

In my own experience, certain AIPAC member say i suffer from self-hatred or, and this is actually 'funny' in a sick sad way, they called me an anti-semite. You just can not make this stuff up. Sad, really, for them to stoop to such easily proven wrong comments. Yet as many know from experience those are their favorite weapons this side of the usual blackmale, bribes, sending in the Jackals or if all else fails one is then suicided. Odds are... colour me living on borrowed time.

You judge people by their ethnicity. Too bad for those individuals.

You make conclusions based on appearances. Reality is often something else.

Your soft-core approach to the issue doesn't alleviate your responsibility to the truth.

So many merely want to rant on the issue. No one appreciates a good rant more than I. For example, I am  fascinated by that extremely ordinary-looking fellow that made all those speeches back in the thirties about that particular ethnic group.

What is almost as interesting as his paroxysms is to look into the faces of his audiences. He is gone. But his audiences are still craning their necks and mumbling his incantations, looking for the next leader.

Let me try to grasp your pretzel-logic, fm.

you are crediting your race or religion for the Nobel prizes received by people who made their entire careers in scientific communities funded by the taxpayers of Germany, US, France, Canada, UK etc. ?

As I said before, by your criteria it is perfectly legitimate for anyone to attribute the responsibility the crimes against humanity committed by any Jews (and they are a statistically implausible high number) to ALL Jews.

You are a risible and stereotypical example of myopic jewish racial supremacism.

You condemn Jews in the upper reaches of banking for the ills of the economy. What you fail to recognize is that you, Shylockracy, are responsible; for, as a member or the sovereign electorate of the US you can exert your power in an effort to remove them and bring them to justice for the crimes you claim; but you just blather instead. If I believed as you do I wouldn't be sitting on my hands. That makes you pretty pathetic.

And if the crimes you allege are so manifest, why doesn't Barack and his Justice Dept. pursue it?

They're not Jews. Oh-oh! Time to elaborate on the conspiracy theory. No problem! We got plenty conspiracy theory, all you want. What you want? we have it ready it go in five minutez.

To say nothing of your claim of group guilt which is retrograde and foolish, if only for humanitarian reasons.

And you begrudge Jewish achievement in medicine and the sciences, which benefit all mankind, even you, Shylockracy, because their funding is public. You won't even address the marvelously improbable FACT that Jews make up about forty percent of all Nobel laureates in Medicine and Science, though they are way less then one percent of world population

Then you say Jews commit a disproportionate number of crimes against humanity. I can prove (google it) that Jews win far and away a flabbergastingly huge proportion of Nobel Prizes in science and medicine, humanitarians all.

Where's your proof that Jews are committing a disproportionate number of crimes against humanity?

When you post whatever cut and paste you choose, make sure to give context of proportion. This is a site for economics so I am sure you know what I mean.

And please, you said crimes against humanity, be specific what court or independent body condemned them.

I jeer at you in advance because, once again, as always, you have only the rancor or your moniker to back you up and nothing else.

I’m sorry i had to do a double take on what you just said, its so infuriatingly perturbed and belligerently screwed up that i just need your clarification. Are you saying (LOL i cant believe i am asking this) that its the electorates fault for the skulduggery, conniving, thieving, conning, and raping of the economy carried out by dastardly bankers? That the greater majority of the electorate should have been up to speed on the activities of sneaky bankers, seen all this coming and stopped it by VOTING? (at best, you over estimate democracy) Boy, you have some serious priorities to put right, then you can work on the schematic absurdities. You are obviously hiding some perturbed shit if you use that madness as a defence. LOL its the victims fault he got punched in the face, he shouldn’t be so weak and pathetic! She was raped because she was so god damn pretty, what do you expect! Enough, stop talking yourself into a confession.

As for the reasons why Jews have won so many "Prizes" i would say its because Jewish mothers are all ball breakers. Jews are so wound up by their faith and community, so much is expected from them from so many. They carry that spooky faith around their necks, and it inspires them into making crazy commitments…where the greater majority of them eventually mature and realise that they have spent their lives in slavery Then there is the fact that Jews are usually persecuted where ever they go and hence feel the need to prove themselves. Its like asking, why do the Irish have a disproportionate amount of Nobel prizes for literature...its not hard to work out is it? (have we got a bullshitting gene, or just a lot of pubs and nice scenery?…the less obvious one is true) And when it come to racism, the Jews and Muslims have every base covered…nasty deluded bunch, the lot of em . What’s so genetically superior about growing spooky beards, wearing freaky hats and saying prayers all day that never get answered? Pack of retards, basically. pfff

Francismarion's "democracy" gambit, together with "human rights," is the preferred pretext used by Western oligarchs to shut up the the enslaved rabble at home and justify wars of aggression abroad.

It has worked like a charm since Woodrow Wilson and his bankster advisers, through to Obama and his gadarene pigs.

Since in a plutocracy only money talks, the illusion of participatory democracy is the ultimate ruse to indoctrinate the masses into thinking that their peonnage is self-inflicted, that resistence is futile, that misery is their fated lot and that they'd better appreciatingly lick the plutocratic hand that feeds them.

I would wholeheartedly agree with you.

Plus you didn't answer any questions...you posed another one.  The statistical disproportionality of jooz in nobel prizes is relatively easy to explain.  Ascedant ashkenazi IQ along with the era in which the nobel has been offered.

The electorate - really I thought it was the Electoral College. Once again go fuck yourself because you're a douchebag.

 

The Electoral College consists of the popularly elected representatives (electors) who formally elect the President and Vice President of the United States. Since 1964, there have been 538 electors in each presidential election.[1] Article II, Section 1, Clause 2 of the Constitution specifies how many electors each state is entitled to have and that each state's legislature decides how its electors are to be chosen. U.S. territories are not represented in the Electoral College. The Electoral College is an example of an indirect election.

The election for President and Vice President is not a direct election by United States citizens. Citizens vote for electors, representing a state, who are the authorized constitutional participants in a presidential election. In early U.S. history, some state laws delegated the choice of electors to the state legislature. Electors are free to vote for anyone eligible to be President, but in practice pledge to vote for specific candidates and voters cast ballots for favored presidential and vice presidential candidates by voting for correspondingly pledged electors.[

A victim once again. This time it's the electoral college.Why keep blaming your helplessness on others?

How much further do you go before you say it's the whole world against you?

I recommend you immediate institutionalization for a period of not less then six months.

And keep up the wrath thing- it might work eventually.

This type of passive/aggressive strawman shit is just champagne stuff man, keep it up.

I thought it was the whole world against the poor joos.  Always.

If someone came up in the "electorate" who promised to do away with the central bank, the monied bankster clan would conduct an all-out character assassination, just like you do.

LOL Nobel Prize - didn't Obama get one of those? We can talk about that cozy club at another time. Do you honestly think that if the USA goes in the shitter and the majority of the people that made the decisions to get the country destroyed are Jewish that there isn't any causality? Even if it all just coincidence ,LOL, the angry mob formerly known as the middle class will turn their hatred to a group that they can blame which will probably be the Jews whether it is deserved or not.

Nobels for science and medicine don't come so easy. Your ignorance is curable. Try harder.

Yes, it's too easy to see that with the proper provocation and direction, scared people can be made to do anything. That justifies nothing. Try being reasonable.

As for the real reason things go south, I look to the real power, namely the electorate. Oh, that's you.

You see the problem.  You are part of the electorate. Why don't you try harder?

 It's the Jews! Waah-haaa.Waah!

The sovereign power that permitted its institutionalization still exists. That's you and the rest of the citizens of the US.

Maybe you should get together with a hundred million of your nearest and dearest and fix it.

Or you can just rant about how awful it is and you feel awful about it and it's awfully clear it's a certain ethnic groups fault.

UnOb,

the angry mob formerly known as the middle class will turn their hatred to a group that they can blame which will probably be the Jews whether it is deserved or not

"undeserved" is the keyword.
When the average imbecile, a.k.a. J6P/redneck, finally
wakes up, what is he gonna see? guberment infested w/ jews. msm infested w/ jews. banks infested w/ jews. holly flicks infested w/ jews. Who, in his infinite imbecilic wisdom, is J6P, the 'amerikan' going to blame? Kaiks.
Please keep in mind it's by design. As planned. That
script has been played before with success. Why? Because the rats already abandoned the ship with the loot and left stupid kaiks behind to burn in gas chambers while unemployed J6P is put back to work to make "made in USA' ovens. Who do you think the fema concentration camps are for? That's what I want to know.

I love how the world sees the USD...it's supposed to be perpetually strong.  We're supposed to eat it so they can have perpetual export growth.  WHAT?  You US mfers won't CONSUME MORE?

I mean, we hear every goddamned muthafuggin day about how overconsumptive we are yet every freakin nation wants us to do MORE of it to be their customer so they can grow.  We constantly hear complaints about how good we have it yet these same nations DON'T WANT their currencies to appreciate against ours.  jfc

I t may well be asked why foreign nations would purchase US treasuries at a negative effective interest rate.

As best I understand it (which admittedly may not be so “best”),

(1) US issues more dollars (credit) - the reserve currency for the world

(2) country X gets swamped with depreciating dollars buying up its goods and resources

(3) country X wants to get rid of hot potato dollars because they are depreciating, overheating domestic markets, hurting export profits (unless they raise prices)

(4) Country X is boxed in:

US restricts what can be purchased by foreigners (FL or Vegas real estate anyone?)

Countries Y and Z won’t be too happy about recycling extra dollars from X because it will drive up their own currencies and hurt exports (think Japan’s reaction to recent Chinese yen purchases).

So then, what’s left?

Buy US weapons, or US bonds.

“Back in the early 1970s, U.S. officials told OPEC governments that if they did not do this, it would be deemed an act of war.”

It may well be asked why foreign nations would purchase US treasuries at a negative effective interest rate.

Hmmm. They don't have to - no one is forcing them. Would they have those extra US$ if they didn't run a current account surplus?
