The Monarchs Of Money

Tyler Durden's picture


The world's central banks have printed unimaginable amounts of money in recent years - "these guys are really more powerful than the government." Neil Macdonald explores what this means for the global economy and for your financial well-being - "can you imagine if the American public knew there was this 'club' that met secretly in Switzerland and made decisions that dramatically affected their lives, but we're not going to tell you about it because it's too complicated." This brief documentary should open a few eyes to the reality behind the world's most powerful (and real) cabal.

The whole endgame of the current global monetary system is ZIRP. This ensures the transfer of ownership of ALL assets except one: The only way in which these people cannot take all of your property is by owning physical gold, due to the fact that it is the antithesis of the current monetary system. Think of gold as the kryptonite of Keynesianism. Gold has been real money LONG before there was FRB, and it will be real money LONG after this system is gone. If you want a TRUE store of long term, generational wealth you will own physical gold. The COMEX price of paper gold is not real, please do not be confused.

There's only two videos you need watch.

The BIS, Part 1:
The BIS, Part 2:

As per my previous post/comments.

So the real question is, what is the framework, what is the network???

The Custodial Framework/Network
United Nations - Global Police
World Bank - Global Lender
International Monetary Fund - Global Debt Collector
Intelligence - Custodial Eyes & Ears (Mi6, Mi5, CIA, MSS, Mossad, FSB {KGB}, SIS, CSIS, ASIS, DCRI, BND etc)
Power & Control Centres - US Council on Foreign Relations, European Council on Foreign Relations, Club of Rome, Bilderberg Group, Royal Institute for International Affairs, Trilateral Commission etc.
Main Stream Media - Global Propaganda
Hollywood - Global Propaganda and epicentre for Alternative/Pagan/Kabbalic/Ancient Mystery Religious interests.
Bank for International Settlements - Global Banking Computer Network for the movement and transfer of Global Currencies (the Back Bone)
London Bullion Market Association - Physical distribution and controlling agency of Gold (real wealth)
Central banking Network - Physical distribution and controlling agency of Global Currencies (medium of exchange for services, goods and labour)
Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries – Global distributor and controlling agency of Global Oil (consumable real wealth)

Gold & Fiat Currency

Over the last few months I’ve tried to nail-down an underlying reality, a meaning, the ‘nature’, of both physical Gold and Fiat Currencies. Neither are obvious to the average person, and there are many, many versions as to what they both are, depending upon which camp you are in (Trader, Economist, Politician, PM Bug, Investor, Mum & Dad, Business Owner, Banker, Wanker, Central Planner etc-etc).

My reasoning for trying to identify this is simple; I have not been overly comfortable with what the majority of people on this forum, as well as other sectors, have declared them to be.

Not knowing the true nature of Gold and Currencies manifests into a failure to understand the relationships both have in the real world. Add to that a deficiency in understanding them as a financial tool and/or investment.

I would like to share with you what I’ve come up with…and I’ve kept them simple.

CAVEAT: I refer to currencies in a general sense, not one in particular, and not one in relation to the another. I do not refer to any Gold Derivatives.

Fiat Currencies are Derivatives
Since the abolition of the Gold Standard, Fiat Currencies have become a Derivative; as they are traded in the open market they point to an economy of origin, they point to that country’s Bond and Treasury Bills, and they point to the ‘Balance Sheet’ of that country’s Central Bank. Destroy the Bonds, Treasuries, Economy or Balance Sheet and you destroy the Fiat Currency as well. This was not necessarily the case when Currencies were backed by Gold and/or conformed to a Gold Standard, as the underlying value was preserved within the physical Gold…Currencies were indeed a ‘Claim Cheque’.

Gold has two lives (Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde); it spends most of its live as perpetual Commodity, but every now and then it becomes ‘Flux Money’. We all know its Dr Jekyll manifestation as a metal and traded commodity, so there’s no need to elaborate on that. In its Mr Hyde manifestation (Flux Money) it phases in and out of favour throughout history under certain conditions. When things are going well Gold is almost hated for its lack of return performance and cost of storage, but when things deteriorate, that's when Gold comes out of psychological hiding. When wealth moves into Gold for safety, by virtue of its demand, it becomes the vessel of choice. Once this starts to happen, a bottle-neck appears as more and more wealth converges upon a finite Gold supply. Demand forces the value of Gold upward and this is precisely when Gold recaptures its reputation and all of the ill feelings as a non-returning commodity are forgiven. I believe the reason Gold has this ability, this power, is simple; it’s etched into the psyche of every society since every society has historically been through dark times. Also, as the saying goes “there no such thing as an atheist in a fox hole”, well, there’s no such thing as a Paper Bug in a [global] Collapse, whether that be Deflation, hyperinflation or societal.

In simple terms, Currencies are derivatives which relate to the modern economy, and Gold is both a permanent commodity and occasional safe storage.

If you can relate to this, then you can proceed with the $64,000 question; where are Currencies going and where is Gold going?

So really, the answer to this question – since currencies are a derivative – relates directly to the actions of Central Banks, Government Treasuries, and Global Consumers.

And what are we seeing? Central Bank balance sheet expansion, Government Treasury Ponzi schemes, and a protracted contraction of Global Consumption.

If you believe Central Banks will keep printing, Governments will keep Deficit Spending, and Global Consumers are on the edge, then Gold will come out of flux and solidify back into money once again.

These who defy their intuition, those who defy the psyche of the market, will burn in a paper bonfire, should the current path be defended and this erosion continue.

Quote: " In its Mr Hyde manifestation (Flux Money) it phases in and out of favour throughout history under certain conditions. "

The reason that gold phases in and out as money is because of the continual effort of governments and money changers to control people & fight wars - to do that they must demonetize gold.

Various excuses are used to demonetize gold and when the central planners fail in their "new, latest and greatest" money schemes, they inevitably return to gold as money.

For all the handwringing that is expressed in this forum, we have accept that the current "wealth effect" bubble has preserved some remnants of our lifestyle. The rest of the world continues to slave for the mighty dollah which is showered upon us either in form of entitlement payments, make work jobs (govt jobs), asset bubbles. So, let us give thanks to our military and financial wizards for this joy ride.

If we are honest with ourselves, we would acknowledge that gold is too 'democratic' and would destroy our unfair economic advantage. Why voluntarily give up our advantage?

These jumbo banks are our front line financial troups to skim the rest of the world (by being lynchpin of the global financial system that preserves our reserve currency (USD and related swappable currencies)) but the employees in these banks have such a free hand, given the opportunity they have preyed on our population as well. But, the rest of the world actually faces the brunt of these banks aggression. So, suck it up boys, we have it relatively easy.

Let me make it simple.   Currency is a derivative and gold isn't.

Currency is owned and controlled by someone else, just like any other derivative.  Its value can be dramatically affected by what the the owner/controller does.  This is the core meaning of "counterparty risk".

Physical gold has no counterparty risk.  It's not owned and controlled by someone else. 

Bottom line, "counterparty risk" means you don't own it.  You just rent it.

This is some interesting stuff here TSP. But, I think, the aggregate value of a country's fiat currency/bonds/bills etc is ultimately a derivative of its government's ability to extract value from its citizens (and, in the case of a world reserve currency, other countries' citizens) and natural resources.

This is another angle on the exogenous/endogenous disparity between gold backed vs. fiat, debt-based monetary systems.

Your points are mostly true, but the masses did nothing in 2008 and have generally done better than the thinkers over the past five years. Within the set of thinkers, the subset of over-thinkers is significant.

I absolutely agree with those, like David Stockman who can "do math," but the key to making money is being correctly positioned just before the masses make their collective move. 

Market forces eventually win out, but too many of us thinkers miss out by understanding the eventual, logical conclusion of unsustainable trends.

Rational breeders lose their jobs to the instinct-based over-breeders who create markets where the shrewd move production to exploit two-dollar-per-day labor. 

I have not been able to find a clip to the SNL caveman skit where cavewoman Lorraine Newman gives her hilarious "You make me wet" line to the super-smart Steve Martin. Jealous low-brow caveman Phil Hartman(?) ultimately solves the love triangle issue with a club whack to Martin's character. That's kind of where we are with the thinkers of today thinking how things should be and not capitalizing on the bizarre, surreal way they really are.

A good, in-depth explanation of why gold's technical indicators point to continued near-term weakness, but may ultimately turn the average investor to that which is real.

Understand why yield is being chased and that the trend can quickly reverse.

One key point made is to watch the bond market for early signs that Japan's monetary base doubling is leading to higher borrowing costs, not growth = failure of the monetary expansion policy.

The point that Japan's borrowing costs may lead to consuming all tax receipts in as little as two years is also a Kyle Bass point.

Germany, on the other hand, with its gold repatriation over the next few years, is probably preparing the Mark as its fall-back plan.

We will probably be surprised how long central bank schemes can perpetuate this historic economic experiment, now nearly 100 years developing since 1913, and how quickly it all collapses.

I already knew that the document existed, exactly where it was, and what it contents were, so it only took 10 seconds even with my crappy typing.

I watched the first video, until I gave up on pulling up the address the he was supposedly reading from, and moved on to the second video, and as soon as he started skipping sections entire like what the BIS can be sued for as opposed to what it can't- I stopped watching.

It was probably 5-7 minutes time, and we have pretty accurate timepieces here, so perhaps ZH got some crappy sever clocks when their servers departed ZH???

That would explain it.  

The agreement itself isn't much different then the standard agreements used for diplomatic missions and a lot of exemptions aren't as broad as they first appear, such as "exemption for themselves, their spouses and children, from any immigration restrictions from any formalities concerning the registration of aliens and from any obligations relating to national service in Switzerland;" they don't get out of the passport control lines, but it will get them out of the immigration quota mess and a couple of trips to various authorities, however they still have to go through the diplomatic credentials submission and approval mess- which is just as time consuming, and the military service thing is irrelevant since Swiss don't want foreigners serving in the military or restocking bomb shelters (the non-military civil service equivalent), however, if there is a call up then the BIS must request a waiver of service for any Swiss employees.  

It's very Swiss that not only are they not immune from prosecution over traffic offenses, but they are liable for spot fines- which are generally paid in cash to the cop.  I seem to remember a case where a Georgian diplomat killed an American at Dupont Circle and it required a major foreign policy push by a superpower just to get his immunity waived.

And if TSHTF the Federal Council can invoke Article 25, and if the BIS doesn't comply then the entire agreement and its immunities are effectively nullified.  Neutrality and protocols are serious business over here though, and there are valid reasons for it- such as last Friday's speculation-du-jour which centered on exactly when the SNB pulled all of its gold out of FRBNY- the consensus of the chattering class was that it was done in response to a perceived threat to Swiss sovereign or central bank immunity as a result of the Volker Commission.

Another recommendation is to review the 20 year research of one of their sycophants, one Carroll Quigley, presidential mentor (Clinton):

It must not be felt that these heads of the world's chief central banks were themselves substantive powers in world finance. They were not. Rather, they were the technicians and agents of the dominant investment bankers of their own countries, who had raised them up and were perfectly capable of throwing them down. The substantive financial powers of the world were in the hands of these investment bankers (also called "international" or "merchant" bankers) who remained largely behind the scenes in their own unincorporated private banks. These formed a system of international cooperation and national dominance which was more private, more powerful, and more secret than that of their agents in the central banks. This dominance of investment bankers was based on their control over the flows of credit and investment funds in their own countries and throughout the world. They could dominate the financial and industrial systems of their own countries by their influence over the flow of current funds through bank loans, the discount rate, and the re-discounting of commercial debts; they could dominate governments by their control over current government loans and the play of the international exchanges. Almost all of this power was exercised by the personal influence and prestige of men who had demonstrated their ability in the past to bring off successful financial coupe, to keep their word, to remain cool in a crisis, and to share their winning opportunities with their associates. In this system the Rothschilds had been preeminent during much of the nineteenth century, but, at the end of that century, they were being replaced by J. P. Morgan whose central office was in New York, although it was always operated as if it were in London (where it had, indeed, originated as George Peabody and Company in 1838).
~Carroll Quigley

My research independently coincides with Quigley's significantly more in-depth research - The Central Bank heads are puppets, lady (there is only one at any given time!) and gentlemen.  The "power of money" that is "gravely to be regarded" (Eisenhower's terms) constitute the Machiavellian Oz "behind the curtain," - and Central Bankers are their hand maidens and nothing more.  Consider them French Revolution insurance for the true monetary authoritarians.

Chapter 19 is fascinating for people who want to know what a knowledgeable dElite sycophant, with full access to dElite source documents, says about the real power structure of the world and their aims, objectives and strategies...

1897 to 1947 is also a rather limited window and a lot has changed since then, like most of the current crop of Bank CEOs being born.

I wrote a much simpler shorter explanation down below (at the end of a lengthy dialogue).

Urban, actually, the language is pretty plain and matter of fact.  The implications are pretty spooky, though, but calliing it spooky doesn't make it untrue.

Actually, I observe that not much has changed since Tragedy and Hope was published...  except the front corporations for the group Quigley says is controlling the nations are TBTF&Jail and their authoirtarian rule is more open and in our face now.

Maybe the reason is because people glibly dismiss something without doing the proper research - and if the plan is working, why would they change it?

If Quigley was trying to sell books, he wouldn't have written this one.  Even Quigley agrees there was a conspiracy to sabotage his book sales and the plates to the book were broken at one point.  Not to mention you won't find an establishment book review for Tragedy and Hope in the almost 50 years since it was published.

Read up on the history of it all.

getting back to some thoughts on your original question-


rename Power & Control to Control & Coordination

IMF - make Global Banking Computer Network

BIS - move to Control & Coordination and CC Central Banker reacharound when the IMF being "uncooperative"

DoD - add to global police & debt collector

London & Paris Clubs, ICSID add to Global Bankruptcy Judge

UN - break out Security Council, the rest is sheeple fodder and propaganda tools

Add G7 & G20 to Control & Coordination

There about three dozen private clubs (worldwide) and a dozen or so US think tanks (European thinking bores me but there are few of them too) that also belong under Control & Coordination


The whole thing is rather Old World Centric and ignores the superpower struggle for primacy and the old/new developed/emerging schisms which simultaneously exist within and without that framework and can operate at any given time in tandem or against it.  


Then there's the major detail that this all transpires in alpha male land, not pussy collectivist land, so there are the routine pissing matches and longer term struggles within individual organizations and larger club of clubs to dominate.

What is this nonsensical statement:  "ensures the transfer of ownership of ALL assets except one"?   Do you own the clothes on your back?  Food?  Alcohol? Your pet?  Your thoughts?  Life is supported on a day-to-day basis by owning assets other than gold.  The asset these supposedly good-intentioned central bank thieves really want to experiment with is your productive labor.  Forcing you to store your labor in dollars, then forcing depreciation of your labor via inflating dollars is the way they get THE fundamental asset - your slave labor.  Gold may be helpful to us, but only when exchanged at the ever-fluctuating market price for life-supporting goods.  Gold cannot be THE answer, because it can't do EVERY thing.   To treat gold as though it could do everything is false alchemy, no different than central banker myopia.  Gold is an answer, because it can do some things.

Excellent, excellent points.  Gold is a part of the answer, but your core theme is spot on, SunRise.  Take money/currency out of the mix and the power grab can be seen for what it is: an all-out assault on individual sovereignty.  The right to direct the returns of one's labor is the most fundamental element of liberty, and therefore the most feared thing by the cowardly power-grabbing filth that repeatedly finds its way to the central-state control room.

If I have your math right 1 Army = 162,000 rifles (and they were all officers~ another 162,000 sidearms) for a total of 324,000 firearms every 9 days or 36,000 per day

Per the FBI, so far in 2013- NICS is averaging over 2.18 MILLION background checks per month (which can be for multiple firearm purchases each) or over 71,500 per day

Or for another perspective, back in the 2008 election the commentariat was throwing around a rather spurious 100,000 million firearm ownership number, we are only four months into Obama's second term and since he was sworn in the first time in 2009 there have been already been over 73,000,000 background checks performed during his presidency

I came across some article or post somewhere in the last few days that had provided a similar calculation to the 73,000,000, but I can't find it now, and since they didn't bother to link to actual the FBI data- they can do without proper credit.

IF politicians are merely puppets, why would 'Central Bankers' be any different.

DO you really think the people behind it all  (the owners) would make themselves visible?


Here's an exercise for you all; try to trace down the ownership of the Fed, down to the individual level. Try to trace down the principals behind the BIS (Bank of International Settlements). You'll hit this impenetrable labyrinth of obfuscation.

Are you all aware that persons traveling on BIS business are exempt from the normal passport requirements that pertain to mere mortals. The BIS is this singular, autonomous micro enclave in Switzerland that's on a level equal or exceeding the Vatican.  

Who are the principles behind the BIS? That is the question.

sorry.  this is blatantly wrong.

government  accepts corporations as humans

the state (gov't) is a legal fiction and can only recognize persons, its own creations, not individuals. the state itself is a corporation, a legal fiction.  the state creates legal persons, so called corporations.  corporations employ agents who act on behalf the corporation (person).  a flesh and blood human beings are individuals.    however,  the state issued a birth certificate for each individual and created a legal fiction (a legal person with legal personality), a corporation sole, your corporation. the individual (flesh and blood) is an agent for the legal person with legal personality named on the birth certificate.  the confusion is that  every time an individual acknowledges that he/she is the name on the birth certificate (incorporating document), he/she unwittingly acknowledges he/she is  a legal person in the "eyes" of the state - as opposed to a human being, a flesh and blood individual.  corporations are immortal and exist until they are deleted by its creator, the state.  flesh and blood human beings, creatures of their own maker, live and die.  they are mortal. legal persons with legal personalities (corporations) are immortal.  big difference.

Every member central bank has a separate ownership structure.  

That is ludicrous but actually available amount of data to gather, in the case of the US- 

The 12 district Banks are each have paid in capital and ownership divided based upon the size of their member banks.  Fortunately, their banks tend to be publicly listed companies, so the Stock Transfer Agent for each bank actually does have those records.  Those records then have to weighted by individuals banks ownership, and then added to all the other banks in that district's tallies.  And then the District rosters need to be totaled.  The great thing about the US in this rabbit hole is that THERE NO COMPANIES OF UNREGISTERED (BEARER) SHARES so every OWNER is known in the fascist USSA.

And the US wasn't even a board member at the BIS until the Clinton administration...

So you want individuals, like people in hell want ice water... I'm an owner of the SNB, so I must own the BIS too.

I've long since been aware of what you stated above.

Now, who owns these 12 regional banks. They might be public but that doesn't mean their shares aren't owned by offshore private entities, note I used the term "entities", not individuals (entities which don't have to divulge anywhere as much in the way of information as public entities). Also, importantly, who sits on the boards and how do you know the board members aren't simply proxies for the underlying owners.

Using placeholder, fake (proxy) board members is a common ruse in the world of laundering ownership/control.

You've expended a bunch of energy and yet still haven't addressed my original question.
Individuals.  Name Individuals. Is it really so hard? Or is your ending  line above meant to imply that ownership is dispersed into the everyday common man who has a few shares of xyz corporation.

"The founders were the central banks of Belgium, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and the U.K., all of which got an identical number of shares. The U.S. Federal Reserve was not an original shareholder; however, three American banks (J. P. Morgan, First Bank of New York, First Bank of Chicago) each got the same number, giving the U.S. three times the voting power from the outset.

By rights granted under its agreement with the Swiss Federal Council, all of the bank's archives, documents and "any data media" are "inviolable at all times and in all places." Furthermore, officers and employees of BIS "enjoy immunity from criminal and administrative jurisdiction, save to the extent that such immunity is formally waived . . . even after such persons have ceased to be Officials of the Bank." Finally, no claims against BIS or its deposits may be enforced "without the prior agreement of the Bank"


What the article above doesn't discuss is that the BIS compound is considered exempt from Swiss law insofar as the BIS authorizes who can enter its grounds (even the local Swiss authorities need to seek permission).


As I stated earlier .... "like the Vatican".
This secretive organization has some real juice behind it, yet few people know about it.

Like I posted hours ago in this very thread - read the actual Headquaters Agreement (and the other 2 key agreements), not some propagandists regurgitated misunderstanding of it.

In simplest terms you appear to be missing the forrest in a hopless search for a tree that was cut down and used to build a McMansion ages ago.  The BIS was established to settle Germany's obligations under the Versailles Treaty.  When WW2 ended and the Versailles Treaty was mooted the US no longer had any particular interest in the BIS framework, your big name boogeymen sold their BIS stakes years ago and moved on - long before the BIS kicked out private shareholders.

The name of the great game isn't ownership, it's AUM.(in pursuit of power and influence)   The private bankers ability to influence their own central banks is a direct function of ammassing customer assets under management and making themselves TBTFer (preferably in FRBNYs district, but 2nd tier will also work).

The number of outstanding shares of the banks that can't be effectively traced (by the industry itself) is miniscule compared to the banks' capitalization, much less their BALANCE SHEETs (which contain both customer "deposits" and institutional "interconnections".

JPM has $180B billion in market cap. of which several million is damn hard to track down (I'll be generous and call it $1B) , but that amount isn't shit compared to the over $4000B billion in "leverage" that Jamie Dimon exercises over Bill & Ben's excellent printing adventure.

Carroll Quiqley on the Central Banks

The powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences."

"The apex of the system was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basle, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world's central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank . . . sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the level of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world."

JFK had that great speech about it around that time too....seems the 60's was the last gasp?


we can break out of it now, but many people are too scared to see the path

One of the reasons JFK was assassinated.

JFK issued Treasury Notes instead of FRN.

So that's it?

Carroll Quigley states

"controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert"
and the 1st question in your mind isn't ...."so who the hell owns and controls the central banks".

Jesus Fucking Christ,
That's it.
You sheeple are hopeless.

You DESERVE whatever happens to you.

I, too, have spent time trying to find out the names of actual living people who own the shares that own the BIS, centreal bank, etc. For Christ sake, when the time comes to pull out the guillotine, it's necks that are cut off - not pieces of paper!

Our owners prefer that, when and if the time comes for another 1789 French style unpleasantness, that the people that they employ to be their corporate officers lose their heads instead. That's what they get paid for -- to be the public figurehead.

I could only stomach 3 minutes, then skipped around 'til the end.

Maybe I missed something.
Could someone tell me why this isn't CB-stroking propaganda?

What's the scoop... or is this just Really Bad Dark Comedy night at the ZH drive-in?

It sucked, you missed nothing.

1. The Central Banks were beseeched to come up with a hail mary salvation plan or the entire fucking world was DOOMED.

2. The Central Banks RELUCTANTLY humbly agreed to see if there was ANYTHING they could possibly do that could avert calamity.

3. The Central Banks desperately agreed to the initial 2008 Bailout. And because that felt so good fisting the ass of the average person, they chose to initiate Quantitative Easing, to see if somehow, they could KICKSTART the stalling economies of the world. Their intention was to INFLATE the markets, to instill a sense of wealth, while simultaneously suppressing the interest rates, so people would be enticed to SPEND.

4. The Central Bankers feel TERRIBLE, simple TERRIBLE, about this very difficult decision that they had to make, punish savers to save sinners... but they felt the alternative was even more TERRIBLE... sinners dying by the MILLIONS while a few savers gloated.

5. The Plants who were there to ask the tough questions and to challenge the central bank arguments asked if the intent was to foster spending, why not give the money being printed directly to the SPENDERS?

6. Of Course NO ONE asked, even if everyone in the world was spending non-stop... some nations would be out of money instantaneously, while others would have accumulated all that evaporated money, so why is everyone preaching spending as a means of rescuing every economy when some economies only consume and don't produce a fucking thing?

7. As I said, you missed nothing. This was complete utter BULLSHIT that a 5th grader could have put together, but sadly, this was foisted as INVESTIGATIVE JOURNALISM.

Wow that kind of shit enrages me. If you're going to try to lie to me, at least have the decency to consider I might have some intelligence, and try to do a better fucking job at hiding your deception. Holy fuck. The people who made this video should be buried alive in sand known to house red army ants. Might as well include all the guests / interviewees.
