George Soros Warns "Central Banks Are Creating Financial Instability"

Tyler Durden's picture


While the crisis in Europe is first in Goerge Soros' mind because it is the "hottest" risk flare currently, his biggest concern in what he calls the "disarray in global cooperation," or what we would call 'dueling central banks'. "The almost universal adaptation of quantitative easing," worries him and he notes that "Europe is the last bastion of orthodoxy," in this regard as the aging hedgie warns, "Europe is entering a situation that Japan is desperate to escape from," as "Japan has just abandoned - after 25 years of stagnation - a process that Germany is just in the process of imposing on Europe." But perhaps his clearest concern in this brief clip is that no matter what we are told, the central banks' actions are 'creating' increasing financial instability because, "let's face it, quantitative easing is really and directly competitive devaluation." But it is his comments on the actions of the BoJ that should be most concerning as he stated to CNBC, "What Japan is doing is actually quite dangerous because they are doing it after 25 years of just simply accumulating deficits and not getting the economy going," as he fears should they actually get something [inflation] started, "they may not be able to stop it." If the yen starts to fall, which it has done, and people in Japan realize that it is liable to continue, and want to put their money abroad, then "the fall may become like an avalanche."

perhaps, nevertheless he does know a bit how CBs function

""Europe is entering a situation that Japan is desperate to escape from," as "Japan has just abandoned - after 25 years of stagnation - a process that Germany is just in the process of imposing on Europe.""

is he saying that europe has 25 years of calm, tranquility and slow stagnation ahead? compared to other scenarios in other countries this does not even sound that bad

When I read between the lines of what he is actually saying, I get the usual "we need more NWO".

I'd trust Soros to have our better interests at heart about as far as I could throw a mile-high stack of FRNs.

Doc, want to run a thesis by you, again:  Japan implodes (Bond sells-off Interest rate spikes), money seeks the "safe haven" of USD and, correspondingly, PMs tank.  This provides the Bernank cover to increase his daily $3.8M to something like $5M ($100M/month).  PMs then explode upwards.

What do you think about the likelihood of this basic next step? Haven't seen Redpill around much to include.

Sounds like a plausible thesis to me. My thesis has always been we will see one last big deflationary event followed by an inflationary super-nova burn out. Your thesis could just be the catalyst. I have been setting on a pile of cash to buy up precious metals when the deflationary event happens, however I am finding that as I do my regular monthly purchases that physical is harder to come by. I'm beginning to believe that if we get into another deflationary spiral that physical PMs will be impossible to come by. The paper price may say one thing , but reality will be quite another.

Yep. Agree completely. Anybody waiting to buy PMs to catch the ultimate bargain price due to that SHTF deflationary event will be far too late. When everybody wakes up and realizes the PMs are gone, then deflation immediately becomes hyperinflation and game over.

Just keep BTFD.

Witness the explosion of corporate debt and government debt since the beginning of the crisis. Although government debt gets a lot of press (from the corporate media), no one seems to mention the increase in corporate debt. Because corporate debt levels are so high, theoretically, if the Dow would fall 20%, most companies would quickly move into a territory of NEGATIVE equity. In other words, these companies would all probably declare bankruptcy, this includes household names like Walmart ($126B in debt), Apple ($57B in debt) etc etc etc

That's my point, of all the big Corps, Apple and Walmart have traditionally been known for their reluctance to take out debt relying instead on operating cash flows to finance future operations.

its my understanding he is/was a jew and pretended to by non-jew in order to hide from the nazis during ww2. then left hungary after the war to escape to soviets, both occupiers were dictatorships.  

if 'destroying the usa and other countries'  is countering the military-industrial complex, or the imaginary 'two'-party system, then yes.   

usually people who bash soros as anti-usa are gop-ers who dont like his support of progessive poltics.  and the only place in the usa to support 'progressive' politics is in parts of the democratic party, as shitty as that choice may be.

Mr. SOROS: (Voiceover) Right.

(Vintage footage of women helping each other get on train; train door closing with people in boxcar)

KROFT: (Voiceover) And you watched lots of people get shipped off to the death camps.

Mr. SOROS: Right. I was 14 years old. And I would say that that's when my character was made.

KROFT: In what way?

Mr. SOROS: That one should think ahead. One should understand and–and anticipate events and when–when one is threatened. It was a tremendous threat of evil. I mean, it was a–a very personal experience of evil.

KROFT: My understanding is that you went out with this protector of yours who swore that you were his adopted godson.

Mr. SOROS: Yes. Yes.

KROFT: Went out, in fact, and helped in the confiscation of property from the Jews.

Mr. SOROS: Yes. That's right. Yes.

1eyed, imagine you and I are at a blackjack table. One specific guy winning, repeatedly. We are losing, repeatedly. At first we look to one another and say "WOW" and laugh a little, thinking, this guy's on an amazing run . After an hour of this, we've noticed the dealer coughs and blinks alot, as does this player. We put it together that this guys not special or lucky, he's fuckin' cheating with the house and we're losing our asses. The "WOW" factor goes out the window. Fuck Soros

To be fair I'd have to go looking, off top of my head not ALL related to cheating, but very interestingly, he sold out fellow Jews, taking their property, via false christening paperwork(stole some gulden? cheat...granted it was life or death), working for the Nazis. We all know how that went. Argentina, profits off the currency collapse 1990s, Argentine poverty rate goes from 25-30% to 55-60%(this would need more research, been a while, still 50% or so). Great Britain, profits 1Bil in a day off Pound's collapse(Rottonchild move, sure he was well aware...cheat)

George Soros - Bankster Vulture for the Economic Carrion Trade

Financial Warfare and the Power of Money: “Attack is the Best Form of Defence”

April 1, 2013

As with the major battles of conventional wars, the most spectacular and decisive events of financial wars are crises. The most significant crisis of the 20th century, the Great Depression, allowed all the banks’ gold in the United States to be concentrated in the Federal Reserve and FRS member banks to establish control over the lion’s share of American industry. The financial crisis established in Great Britain in 1992 by currency speculator George Soros, who was closely connected to bankers from the FRS, not only enabled him to earn 1 billion dollars in a single day, but also caused the devaluation of a dozen European currencies, as well as delay the introduction of a single European currency for six years. Most importantly, however, was that it significantly increased America’s influence on the European economy through Americans buying up drastically cheaper shares in European businesses.

Soros was also one of the initiators of the 1995 crisis in Mexico which shelved plans for the construction of an interoceanic canal that would have rivalled the Panama Canal controlled by the Americans. In the same year, Soros dealt a blow to Japan, as the rapid growth of the country’s currency was threatening to transform it into a global financial centre, a rentier state whose yen-denominated loans were ensuring an explosive increase in the economy of Southeast Asia as a whole. Immediately afterwards, with the support of FRS member banks, Soros brought down the financial systems of Indonesia, South Korea, Thailand, Malaysia, Thailand and Hong Kong – all the “Asian Tigers” were firmly shown their place in the cage, having been forced to tie their economies to the US dollar. Taking advantage of a fall in shares of these countries’ electronic companies and the resulting fall in the Dow Jones Index, American high-tech corporations – IBM, Intel, Motorola, Compaq, Dell and Hewlett Packard – bought up a considerable amount of these shares, as well as their own shares that had been “dumped” by third party investors.

Mention of George Soros stirs up more than just his role in organising the crises. Even with several billion dollars available, he would not be able to organise crises without enormous preparatory work. Part of this involves shaping the opinions of those involved in the financial market regarding the inevitability of a particular crisis emerging. After which, even a relatively small amount (to the tune of several billion dollars) is enough to spark off panic in the financial market, which would then devalue the currency and shares of a country’s key enterprises, if not the whole region.

Since 2012, the threat of the disintegration of the eurozone has increased. In the country most affected by the financial crisis, Greece, they have been talking about rejecting the single European currency, which would undoubtedly lead to a serious weakening of the euro.

As well as the psychological excitation – spreading the idea that the collapse of the European currency is inevitable – there is other preparatory work to be carried out. Other the last few months, the US has been using its best endeavours to create a Free Trade Zone with the European Union with a view to finally removing the remaining barriers to the penetration of American capital into Europe and, after engineering the collapse of the euro, to buy up Europe’s tastiest morsels using vastly inflated dollars under the pretext of saving the EU’s economy… Or crush any attempts made by the EU to carry out reindustrialisation and increase its global influence.

One could argue that the USA simply does not have the money for such a large-scale operation. In point of fact, it is true that the government does not have enough. The Federal Reserve System does, however, shown by the scandal that recently broke out in the States regarding the FRS providing secret loans to “loyal” banks totalling almost three trillion dollars....

Mr Soros, who has profited greatly from central banking, is taking the position that central banks are the only solution to the problems central banking created.  Mises explained that sound money is the solution to central bankings ills, which is not something Mr Soros wants to either hear or acknowledge.

I'll take that bait....The guy relies entirely on an ever bigger government to "kick the can" any direction at all just to avoid pain.  He is unprincipaled and a complete opportunist in his thinking that pays no heed to actually long-term implications.  This is the exact type of bone-headed thinking which has created the ubber powerful central banking and government driven world we are experiencing....and these guys are running out of string on the ball or if you prefer, the hand of cards they hold is full of old maids....

Soros's views are broad and he is very confused while contradicting to himself in this interview. Being too smart he does not care much about money its just a game of chess for him with material results.

He obviously has socialists views for good reasons, but does not understand the implications. His main mistake is in thinking like Obama that everyone is created equal, while it is not and he actually knows it.

We are going to have an all Goldman Sachs MMA cage match between new Bank of England Governor Mark “Brutal Reckoning” Carney and Mairo “Whatever it Takes” Draghi.  The Big Giant Squid will win either way. However, the matchup will see Carney’s written views such as Cheap money is not a long-term growth strategy and  The bond market is there until it is not  running up against Draghi’s “we will do whatever it takes” methods.  Looks like a rumble.

The ultimate insider has word that the gold raid is over.  Time to crap on paper again as they run gold up.  This dude has one mode of operation: Insider information from the highest levels.  He gets that info because he manages/launders their money for them in return for it.  He didn't break the Bank of England.  He knew and influenced the policy makers who were going to devalue the pound on purpose.  They all made money on it.  He isn't breaking the Yen.  He knows the people who were planning to devalue it.  Soros is a player for the biggest shitbag criminal ring on the planet.  People who worship that creep are sheep.

George Sores, one of the drivers behind the Global Warming scam and the USA takedown

"George Soros, the radical, far-left billionaire, with a long history of antipathy toward American interests, now sits on a United Nations (UN) panel charged with organizing a $100 billion wealth transfer from the developed world to the underdeveloped world in the name of environmentalism."


Sen. Inhofe: Soros, Gore, Hollywood Complicit In U.N.'s Global Warming 'Conspiracy'

"The goal of the conspiracy is use the hoax of man-made apocalypse to scare Americans – especially little kids – into becoming willing slaves to the control of multi-national organizations, like the U.N., that want to redistribute wealth and seize power."

...Yes Yes George Soros and his old friend Maurice Strong - don't cheer them - fear them!

Judi McLeod (Bio and Archives) Monday, November 24, 2008

The new world devised by Maurice Strong and George Soros

"Have you ever wondered how capitalism was pushed over the edge of the cliff just six weeks before the American presidential election?

According to financial experts, the world, as we know it will change dramatically by the year 2012. People, who provided for their families only three years ago, will be desperately searching for food.

The story of the economic meltdown of 2008 begins and ends with the United Nations and its carefully managed One World Order.

Behind the curtain of this dark chapter in human misery are ogres Maurice Strong and George Soros.

It is both power lust and an all-consuming hatred of the United States of America that elevated this deadly duo to ogre status."

George Soros loves money and fears losing it. One quadrillion unregulated otc derivatives and his failed nazionist experiment is his worst nightmare.

All his fronting the 'new world order' for the old robber barons is crashing down, despite his pretty pets like O'bomba.
