The 8 United States Of A New Monetary America

Tyler Durden's picture


Do we need 50 states? With the corporatocracy increasingly looking to cut costs, wouldn't it make more sense to right-size the number of 'regional' centers of democracy? With an increasingly Federally dominated US, perhaps 50 disparate decision-makers is too many. It turns out, that based on some wonderfully complex math (spatially embedded multi-scale interaction networks) and data from, the United States Of America is more 'optimal' from a monetary and mobility-sense if it were managed around these 8 regions. Theoretical physicist Dirk Brockmann says the borders of the United States are out of date, and as Fast Company notes, "no longer correlate with our behavior." By combining network theory with the travels of our dollar bills, the 'real' effective boundaries in a new USA are far simpler, reflecting where money 'stays' as opposed to more arbitrary state boundaries.


Tracking the dollars and network theory does the rest...


Where's George? Anywhere, but mostly within the confines of the "blue borders"

Finally, George-to-George tracking can be seen best in his chart of "multi-scale human mobility" showing the short and long-range connectivity patterns when it comes to the physical distance travelled by actual US Federal Reserve notes, which according to Brockmann represents "proxy for human mobility."

and the full paper behind the creation of the new 8 super-states

Why does the Minneapolis light look abnormally large? Also, there's still money flowing in Detroit?

Those are main Federal Reserve bank distribution hubs. There is one in Detroit and Minneapolis. The one they built in Houston recently looks like a cross between a church and a fortified bunker.

The NWO propaganda is flowing thick and fast today! Now we have a push for the dissolution of pesky state borders to be replaced by FEMA regions and a council of [selected] governors answering to DC to supervise the sheep.

Has Tyler been waterboarded at Gitmo?

And we should blindly believe everything these collectivist boffins tell us simple because ....they have a Ph.D. handed out to them by the Ministry of Indoctrination?

It eerily resembles the map drawn out as the outcome of the Berlin conference in 1884, in which the sociopathic colonialist european nations partitioned Africa:

Seems like now 8 of those kleptocratic nations have decided to split the USA between them.

Those are main Federal Reserve bank distribution hubs.

There are twelve federal reserve banks.  My first takeaway here is there are four which are even more useless than the system as a whole.  I don't care enough to check, but who wants to bet me that the chairmen of those four are the biggest blowhards?

The ideological Mason-Dixon line has moved a bit over the last century and a half, but there is no way that the Commonwealth of Virginia would remain a single unit, if the exit door is ever opened, the huge cultural differences would lead to physical conflict between the extreme corners of the of the State.  Rinse, repeat.

I used to think that the NWO crowd's noodles were baked a little too long, but with each passing day, the crap that yesterday I thought to be delusional is headline news today.

Hasn't the NWO crowd predicted an attempt to reconfig the States into something like 10 regions?

Thanks for your links. Most are recommended reading ... but beware of becoming overloaded with red herrings.

While the general thesis of the NWO conspiracy is true, many of those writers are, in fact, active members of the NWO apparatus itself and are "limited hangouts" (giving out part of the story while concealing other, more critical, connections) designed to divide truth-seekers among the many varioulsy named culprits (bankers, jews, corporations, Illuminati, Bilderbergers, globalist politicians, communists, fascists, etc) while completely concealing, or even denying, the one connecting thread.

The real conspiracy of today incorporates many of the above suspects, but traces in a continuous and clear trail all the way back to the Khazarian tribe of Central Asia ... a divergent group of intelligent, blue-eyed, blonde-haired warmongers who have been continuously trying to gain rule of the world for 4,000 fucking years!!

I could go into documented detail, but it is too long for a forum post in a dead thread. Maybe another day....

The Minneapolis Fed has been turned into a massive fortress as well.  They installed bullet proof glass and it's guarded by thugs.  The Federal court building or whatever it is near there is also a giant fortress.  It is the projection of power and coercion in the upper midwest, but a little satellite office compared to Chicago, though.  If I could get 10,000 or so like-minded folks together we could probably burn it down.  Not sure what that would accomplish, but I guess it would send a clear message back to DC that this bullshit needs to stop.

Wouldn't such a plan truncate all those political career paths?  Think of all the profit potential lost by shortening up the chain of graft.  Fifty AG's, 50 sec states, 50 of everything would be cut to a few honchos and increase the competition and bribery to advance. There might be regional wars... Or whores, however you choose.
