Janet Yellen Exposed - The Truth Behind The Myth

Tyler Durden's picture


When President Obama nominated Janet Yellen to be the next Chair of the Federal Reserve Board the praise he offered was similar to what had already poured in from around the country. In their assessments of Ms. Yellen's long career, Congressman, editors, and academics have underscored how her prescience and caution distinguish her from the reckless overconfidence that have plagued her male colleagues at the Federal Reserve. As proof of her wisdom supporters have pointed to speeches she delivered in 2005 and 2006 in which she supposedly issued clear warnings about the dangers then building in the frothy real estate markets.  Without any attempt at reasonable fact checking, these claims have been parroted by the media.
However, a brief review of the speeches in question reveals that she issued no such warnings at that time.

In a new video, Peter Schiff, the CEO of Euro Pacific Capital and a well-known author and economist, goes over the speeches in question and comes to the easy conclusion that the new leader at the Federal Reserve is just as incapable as her predecessors of recognizing a dangerous asset bubble. Worse yet, as a diehard believer in the power of expansive monetary policy, Ms. Yellen would be much less likely to attack an asset bubble even if she were ever to recognize one before it burst.

The banking clampdown has already begun. Apparently some banks may already be limiting transfers and withdrawals:

Yep I got that EMAIL last week from my USA credit-union.

"Our records show that in the past you have used wire-transfers", ... "They may no longer cost $40/transfer, ... they may cost MORE"...

It said "for your safety, instead of the prior 12 hour transfer, from now they make take a week or more and limited to a very small amount of money"

Also added was "You may have to come to the branch in person, as there may be problems with online transfers"...

In other words, if you want to move your MONEY outside the USA, ... don't ask us to help you.

In effect but most of us knew this you had to get your MONEY out back in 2009 or earlier,... its too late now.

Time to BUY diamonds in the USA and hide them up your ass and fly somewhere like Malaysia.

The subject at hand is these letters the banks are sending out. Is there anybody else that got one of these letters?

In my case,... I can accept the end of transfers abroad.

Last year I was using paypal to paypal but that got shut down by paypal.

There's always 'western union' to yourself at a hair-cut 15% of the gross :) Sort of like money laundering your own money on Breaking-Bad,....

Paypal had been the cheapest, but then they started sending these secret-codes to my USA drop-box, and I wan't able to get the code in time, so paypal axed my accounts.


Like I said above, this is like the elephant blind man allegory, ... if we all share our points of view, only then can we see the big picture.

That's why it's so easy to propogate a lie on the web - just add enough tags and a sexy headline; whatever necessary to elevate the position of a quote or comment in the search engine, and WOW - there it goes, cascading through Titter and Fskbook to who knows where ...

To belabour the obvious, economics9698:

"Yellen will become the 5th consecutive Jewish Fed Chair over the past 43 years (discounting the Gentile William Miller who only served 18 months before being suddenly replaced; 1978-79)

The statistical probability of this incredible Jewish streak (Burns, Volcker, Greenspan, Bernanke, Yellen) being 'coincidental' represents a virtual mathematical impossibility. If Jews account for just 2% of the general population, then, all things being equal, there would be a 1/50 chance of a single Jew being selected as Fed Chair. The odds of FIVE consecutive Jews would therefore be 1/50 x 1/50 x 1/50 x 1/50 x 1/50  =  1 in 312,500,000!"

Golly Gee, I wonder if who also dominates the mass media has anything to do with why Yellen's qualifications have been misrepresented?

Oy Vey!  You're assuming the Fed chair is picked at random like taking marbles out of a bowl.

Speaking of marbles ... the only "people" as smart as Jews are Asians, and they don't control our banking system, at least not yet.

Jews are much better for the banker job than Asians because they're better at the shmooze.

Indeed, Trampy, the vast majority of "Goys" appear to be suicidally stupid Zombie Sheeple, who are being fleeced until they are slaughtered.

Most of the so-called "Jews" converted to that system. Being "Jewish" provided them the one of the best, ready-made book of rules to operate an organized crime gang. The international banksters are not exclusively "Jewish," however, a lot of them now fly that flag of convenience, which enables them to operate collectively, in order to have become the biggest gangsters, that have effectively legalized their frauds, and legalized the violence to enforce those frauds. As one of the leading edges of the ruling classes in the Anglo-American (Zionist) world, they are leading the way towards the supreme paradox manifested by Neolithic Civilization, which is FINAL FAILURE FROM TOO MUCH SUCCESS.

However, my perpetual caveat is that it does not matter as much who they are, as what they do, because what should be done is doing what they do better than they did. The people people who act as the top carnivores in the human ecology, i.e., those men who most prey upon other men, by controlling their energy, which have emerged more or less continuously, during the history of Neolithic Civilization, are basically organized crime, controlled by the best organized gangs of criminals. But nevertheless, the deeper realizations ought to be WHY human ecology and political economy ended up developing the current systems, so that we could do what needs to be done better.

If one wishes to indulge in possible metaphorical ways to understand how the flows of memes and genes have developed through Neolithic Civilizations:

That is a 2 hour long audio recording of John Lash.

I do not believe most of the first hour of that is literally true, but only metaphorically "true" and that attitude continues throughout the last hour, which was by far the most interesting part of it! The closer one gets to the end of that recording, then, the more worthwhile it becomes to listen to. I do not think Lash understands the literal mechanisms and I think he therefore misses huge important chunks. I am not going to bother to repeat my world view here about how evolution of energy systems on Earth works. There are lots of other authors, e.g. David Icke, etc., that have been making the same points. But anyway, I regard John Lash as making very interesting and valid points, which are metaphorically true!

The biggest part of Goy stupidity is that they will sell each other out for a slice of bread. Little to NO clan loyalty.

They can thank the many centuries of breeding and Pavlovian conditioning by the Aristocracy and the Church for that, who turned them into sheep, so that THEY might benefit all these centuries.

Even to this day they fail to realize this truth, and their pathological case of the Stockholm Syndrome will usually cause them to attack each other, rather than their traditional Overlords.

Whatever "power" these "Jews" (original or converted) acquired, was freely given to them by the power-hungry and war-loving Aristocracy.

There's plenty of "blame" to go around.

From her speech on 03/04/13,

The Costs of Asset Purchases
Turning to the potential costs of the Federal Reserve's asset purchases, there are some that definitely need to be monitored over time. At this stage, I do not see any that would cause me to advocate a curtailment of our purchase program.

To address one concern that I have heard, there is no evidence that the Federal Reserve's purchases have impaired the functioning of financial markets, and, while we continue to monitor market function carefully, so long as we pursue our purchases sensibly, I do not expect market functioning to become a problem in the future. Further, I've argued previously, and still judge, that the FOMC has the tools it needs to withdraw accommodation, even if the balance sheet at that time is large. These tools include a new one, approved by the Congress during the financial crisis, which allows the Federal Reserve to pay banks interest on their reserves. A suite of supporting tools, such as reverse repurchase agreements with a wide range of counterparties and the Term Deposit Facility, are routinely tested to make sure that the Federal Reserve is prepared to use them and that they will work as planned.

Yellen has been there the whole fucking time, lying her ass off. Takes around 5 seconds to pull her pathetic record up.

Claiming ignorance it typical of everyone these days. Especially the MSM hacks who report nothing and deflect all criticism when confronted with the facts and truth.

I don't HATE anything,..

I think your the hater.

I just like looking for 'elephants', you know the allegory of the blind-men, and the elephants,

one has a leg another an ear, another his finger up the elephants warm ass, ... to one its a tree, to another its a fan, and to the last its America.

I think if we all view the 'elephant' from our position, then we can 'see'.

I have no passion for Ron Paul, I have watched his 'sheep' for years, and my observations are my observations, that he manages to get the Texas 'hair-lip' vote for 40+ years, and he's a hypocrite, ... so fucking what?

Janet Yellen = QE Queen.

She will keep the juice flowing to Wall Street.

There might be a token attempt at QE to pretend the FED is not a lackey for Wall Street.

Then...Wall Street will crash the markets and the illusory Ponzi scheme of 401K's, IRA's, and Pension force more debt on the backs of future generations to perpetuate the lies that were first told in 1913 with the creation of the FED and the Personal Income Tax.

Then they will attempt to float the Titanic again with promises of "saving the economy" that is perpetually and irrevocably sunk to the bottom of the sea.

Of course Yellen will print. In fact she will accelerate the printing. That was why her masters brought her in. Perhaps the media can talk about tapering again, LOL. Like Peter has said they cannot taper; it's impossible to taper. Instead of tapering they actually need to increase printing and greatly. Again, exactly why Ben wasn't good enough and why Yellen was needed.

there's a trend emerging here on the Hedge; as trends go, it's of the disturbing sort.

does it involve janus?  directly so.

is it unfair in the extreme?  you bet it is.

can anything be done about it?  that's what janus aims to resolve.


the dilemma and its throny horns:  there seems to be a direct and proportional connection between the volume of alcohol i've imbibed and the down votes cast against me (scandalous!).  and i suppose this obersavtion would've passed unobserved had it not been for a strange development in recent weeks.  it's like this -- janus has been slack and irresponsible with respect to his alcoholic much so that i've failed to crack open a brewski or uncork a vino in the past fortnight or so.  it hasn't anything to do with leaf-turning or soul-searching; just got bored with the stuff.  that, and i'm nearing a period of serious writing -- so i'm sorta spiraling in on razor-sharp mental acuity (exhausting!).

as such, the fear i may be slouching about like some sentimental green-arrow-vote-getter is very real, well warrented and calls for an agressive campaign of offensiveness.  i believe i'm up to the challenge.  get yer trigger-finger ready, haters -- this shall wound the sanctimonious and jostle their sensibilities something fearsome.  for the rest of you, you're welcome.

while the rest of the talking heads were up to their noisome monkey-business, janus was pacing across the planks of his balcony conjuring all the questions that should've been asked (but weren't) and then supplying the best possible answers.  sometimes i share; and that's why i'm here tonight...neglecting mrs. janus, as it were...i live to give, bitchez.

should we be concerned that janet yellen was born a woman?  i believe it's rather obvious that we should.  yes, it is highly corageous of me, risking a matchless reputation for politically correct sensitivity; but i do it to not only demonstrate an innate and commendable brand of bravery, i ask and answer these questions because i have to; because it's my job; because that's what heroes do.

as a rule, janus just doesn't notice race, gender, etc...i'm altogether blind to these silly irrelevances over which the many of you fret endlessly.  it is for these reasons and others too impolite to mention that i hadn't, until most recently, alerted to the fact that this yellen charecter is in all likelihood female.  and i wouldn't normally have paid this too much mind if i hadn't discovered it ever-so shortly before i heard an informative piece on NPR.

according to NPR, women are terrible at mathematics.  it's a nut that they cannot seem to crack.  now, if you paid attention to the 'verbage' in the report, you may have come away with a different conclusion.  but janus has been sold on this notion of democracy and collective wisdom, and the like...and so, this report revealed that some gaggle of sociologists (noblest of all academic callings) conducted this study, wherein they presented two identical resumes for a math-laden profession to all sorts of people (men and women alike), and the only thing differentiating the two was the name at the header -- one male, the other female.  it seems collective wisdom was of a single accord.  sack the chic and hire the sire.  

mind you, they followed this study's conclusions up with conclusions of thier own.  the reporter and some english professor at yale were prattling on and on about how awful men are for not thinking in more approved modes, and how they were down-right wicked for convincing women according to the same.  at least, i guess that's what they were saying, i tend to tune women out when they're talking numbers.

and then there's the little issue of menstration...once those goddam algos sync-up with her cycle, it's all over.  bye-bye, USD.  ten-year T-note, forget about it.  convexity?  fuck you.  yeild curve flattening is gonna...well, it's gonna bulge in all the wrong places. 

and you better believe we'll all suffer through the worst possible phase of and unexplained rashes will be all the talk round about maiden lane.

sometimes it's hard to be a woman,

thank you, my friend. and as it is above, to you, so it is below, to ebotwen (and good to see you again)...thank you, too.

yes, gentlemen, it's not only that she's spent the totality of her career cocooned within the hermetically sealed halls of academia -- where the consequence for idiocy is promotion and tenure and the wages for right-thinking are ridicule, scorn and walking papers -- it's that she's flourished by dent of a whacked-out sophistry posing as science; and while this slop was accorded every scholastic stamp of approval (and those who disagreed were exiled to insignificance) the accepted monetary philosphy was yet again, and in real time, demonstrating its intrinsic flaws as to insolvency.

it'd be fun to try and predict what they'll call inflationary/fiat/banker-benefiting-printing several generations from now, once the collected keynsian texts are sent windmilling into wastebins the guess is it'll be an asian sirname -- you know, after they corner (and then benefit) from gold-based trade, then craftily manipulate their citizen's trust with fancily worded academic treatises...and then collapse the formerly gold-backed fiat to reward the banksters that back their political campaigns (full circle) -- yes, well, my guess is dongian economics.  a cagy theory midwifed by professor long duck dong, of the beijing school of econ.

According to Deutsche Bank:

October 8, 2013

Bretton Woods III and the Global Savings Glut


History suggests that periods of global economic expansion are characterized by symbiotic imbalances rather than balanced arrangements that satisfy theoretical ideals. Therefore, it is important to understand the factors that drive the imbalances in each period as well as the resulting distortions. In our view, demographics will have a significant impact on the future trajectory of the world economy. In this report we specifically focus on the implications on savings and current accounts.

Population trends imply that we are entering a phase where rapid aging will cause many countries to generate persistent current account surpluses. This raises the question – who will generate the world’s deficits?

World demographics is not neatly spaced out such that some countries generate surplus savings exactly when others need to fund deficits. Moreover, there are many factors that may prevent surplus countries from funding deficit countries. Thus, we have a situation where countries like India, Brazil and Indonesia may attempt to tame their deficits before old countries like Japan and Germany enter their dissaving phase. The resulting savings glut could be further exacerbated by a likely increase in China’s current account surplus.

Thus, the emerging international economic system, dubbed by us as Bretton Woods III, will yet again depend on the United States to act as the demand source of last resort. Meanwhile, demographics will hold down the real cost of international capital whether or not the US decides to absorb part of it. In turn, the ability of world’s financial system to allocate excess savings will be tested again. Young emerging markets with the ability to sensibly deploy cheap capital could benefit disproportionately from this environment.

More info on Janett Yellen and FED new playbook written by michael Woodford:

 Peter Schiff separates truth from the mass media hype about Janet Yellen's real track record. As we have discussed before, her core beliefs are even more neo-keynesian than those of Ben Bernanke. The new play book for the FED is written by Michael Woodford and it will be even more fundamentally positive for the Gold. We can expect continuation of "pro-growth policies" with very little regard for the created bubbles along the way.
  Peter was right about the Housing Bubble in 2006, he was right about the "Tapering" in September, what will happen if he is right again with his Call on Gold? We will provide his discussion on Gold and our entry on Michael Woodford to dig it out more for interested.
