    Why is a Deutsche Bank mouthpiece suggesting “negative retail deposit rates or perhaps wealth taxes”? The answer is to (supposedly) stimulate our economies.

WAIT! Is this the same as the central bank liquidity swaps Bernanke refused to answer to congress in this video?


Or is this bail out scam an additional scam on top of the $500,000,000,000?

FIAT currency to be precise.

Perhaps it is time these other banks get smart and demand loans be made in physical gold yet paid back in dollars.

Yeah, I believe this is the very list he was refusing to disclose, when he blatantly said, "No"

It is becoming evident to why he was not wanting this info to be released.  The curious aspect will be to see how our media will pick up this story.  I am guessing the digging that TD has done in the first few moments this was disclosed will far surpass anything our little media pigs will do over the coming days and weeks.  We won't even hear about this in one weeks time.  It is not disturbing, it's frightening.  All on a day where we see the market go up over 200 points!!

[I am guessing the digging that TD has done in the first few moments this was disclosed will far surpass anything our little media pigs will do...]---crazyjsmith

I agree on both accounts, crazyjsmith.  TD does an awesome job.  MSM, predictably miserable.

However, the MSM goes back to work this January.

As soon as the new Tea Party congressmen are sworn in, and the Repubs take over the House, the MSM's 2-year vacation will be over.  It's back to work.  The socialist left-wing MSM reporters and journalists will descend on D.C. like never before.  Swarming the Halls of congress anxious to discredit Republicans and defend their dear leader, Obama. 

News, investigative reports, exposes, feature articles, and breaking news headlines will come flooding into newspapers, magazines, websites, and onto network and cable news anchors' desks. 

Here's the secondary effect in this rush.  And, the more important.  These MSM reporters have been on vacation.  I suspect none of them have been researching what's been really going on in the economy these past 2 years.  (Why should they?  Their guy won the election.  All was right with the world.)  So, they go back to work reporting any and all activity of the new Republican House.  I expect, in their rush to discredit the new Repub leadership, the MSM will inadvertantly uncover news stories that will expose Wall Street, the Fed, and damage the White House.  Unwittingly, of course, because the reporters have no idea the interconnectedness of the corruption---they haven't been paying attention to current affairs. 

(I do not write this in defense of the Republican party.  Both Dems and Repubs are shameful representatives of their electorate.)

Yeah, I was thinking the same. The Canadian public were conned into thinking that their Banks escaped the financial crisis unscathed when in fact it is the USFED that bailed their asses out.

I informed the tellers at TD who didn't even know about their own banks exposure to the US RE market. Canadian banks are also heavily exposed to the RE bubble in Canada. It is a fuckan charade up north. Just starting to roll over.

Guess the point is if all we do is after the fact figure out how we were raped but no one cares...are we not better off not knowing?  Seriously, my mental health is taking a pounding.  My ability to function normally in Amerika is in question.

Thoughts?  Is this knowledge helping or hurting folks?

I've taken such an awful financial beating the past 5 years, I now care much less about money/security and feel better today, though years 1 and 2 were tough...

The 4 banks I've worked for during this period haven't fared well - one bit it big-time and now in the hands of foreign gubmint, one acquired for a pittance following a huge bank treasury department miscue, one has yet to repay a penny of the TARP money it took, stock is $4 and bank still loses $1MM per day, and the other is a solidly run Canadian bank....

hambone - it hurts because its terrible. When it hurts enough people try to change things. We've travelled so far down the road of corruption because we wish to avoid the pain.

It is not remarkable that even very "educated" and "aware" people remain in denial. It is so much easier... But denial doesn't work, it just lets the slavers build bigger plantations and buy more slaves.

What will work is transparency. And, we are going to have to make that happen. The banksters won't. The corpgov won't. Only when We the People decide to make it change will it change.

And, we will only decide that when it hurts enough. So... you are an early adopter...

perhaps this is why the Fed didn't transfer Germany's gold back to them.  Collateral.

The dollar sits underneath 75% of world debt.  You need dollars to make your payments?  You borrow them from the Fed

So the apparent plan is an orderly transition of all common equity ownership to the Federal Reserve Bank, then a crash and then selling the assets back to the public at the lower price.

The Fed would be the only entity to take the hit, which does not really matter since the Fed created the money to buy the stocks at the higher levels out of thin air anyway.

What comes from thin air can return to thin air.
