This Is Exactly How You Destroy A Banking System

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Submitted by Simon Black of Sovereign Man blog,

You might not realize it, but yesterday was a very important date.

Yes, of course, it was Cinco de Mayo. But possibly more important, it’s also the deadline for banks around the world to sign up for information-sharing agreements with the IRS.

Think about it like this: imagine that the King of Saudi Arabia decreed that NO grocery store chain in the United States was allowed to sell pork products to citizens of Saudi Arabia.

Crazy, right? Arrogant? Of course.

But that’s essentially what the US government has done.

Passed back in 2010, the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act (FATCA) makes it mandatory for banks around the world to share information about their depositors with the US government.

In other words, Congress expects for banks that aren’t even in the United States to comply with US laws… even if US laws happen to violate the banks’ own local laws!

It’s the height of arrogance. And by passing and enforcing such pitiful regulations, the US government is only shooting itself in the foot.

Right now, the US banking system is at the center of the global banking system.

When a wholesaler in Bangladesh sends money to a supplier in Ghana, that money transfers through the United States.

Both the bank in Bangladesh and the bank in Ghana would have an account in New York– they’re called ‘nostro’ accounts in banking parlance.

Having this common hierarchy makes it easier for banks to transact with each other because they both have a common intermediary. And for now, that common intermediary is the US banking system.

But the US government seems to be going OUT OF ITS WAY to destroy the advantages of this system.

In fact, if you were to advise the US government what to do if they wanted to destroy the banking system, the list would pretty much include everything that they’re already doing:

  • Having inadequately capitalized banks
  • Destroying the federal government balance sheet
  • Destroying the central bank balance sheet
  • Using credit rating agencies for political games
  • Bailing out the banks at everyone else’s expense
  • Passing absurd regulations and demand compliance through fear and intimidation

Uncle Sam is practically begging the rest of the world to create an alternative banking system that doesn’t depend on Wall Street or the US government.

And this alternative system is already forming.

More and more nations are starting to engage in currency swap arrangements, and banks around the world are setting up their own network of interbank accounts.

This is a major issue that is unfolding before our very eyes.

If the US banking system loses its prominence, suddenly the dollar becomes less relevant. As the dollar becomes less relevant, then US Treasuries less relevant.

And if foreigners lose interest in US Treasuries, who will buy that slice of the US government’s debt?

Simple. You.

The Bitcoin crowd seems to place an awful lot of faith in their ability to access their digital currency in the event of an economic collapse. Do they ever consider that, in the event of something on the scale of economic collapse, they might LOSE access to the internet? There are governments NOW that restrict access in their own countries, what leads anyone to believe that wouldn't happen on a much larger scale when governments get desparate to retain control?

How does Bitcoin help you when you have no service?

Once a significant number are using a 'black market' system, it's over. Loss of faith in the banks means people don't put their money there. So, making it easier to seize is irrelevant in the long term, because it won't be there.

And cracking down on a large black market would be a logistical nightmare. You can't go after it electronically, you have to put boots on the ground and physically visit these people, and try and take their stuff. Good luck with that, in a nation of over 300 million, many of whom are heavily armed and pissed off.

I see no "master plan" here. I only see a bunch of elites who have NO clue what they're doing, and are just reacting to stuff TODAY without any thought of tomorrow.

So exactly what happens to people's paychecks? Will they not be direct deposit anymore, or will they just withdraw the money after the deposit? CAnnot the FED seize what it needs, much like now, prior to your recieving it? I can see the banks collapsing, and the dollar being worthless, but as long as paychecks are being handed out in dollars and not hrivnas, the FED will pull the strings on how money is doled out, and what they keep for themselves. At the point of total collapse, black market currency will be the least of the problems.

Wed, 05/07/2014 - 13:23 | 4736567 Bemused Observer
Bemused Observer's picture

A black market bypasses the official economy, so that money won't BE these for seizing. As to paychecks from those who ARE still working in the official economy, yeah, they are pretty much up for grabs. The FED and other powers DO have control over the official economy, but the black market is out of their hands.

Even if TPTB attempt to rein it in by messing about with the currency, the black market will simply switch to something else easily traded. PM, barter, any number of things can be used. It is the whole nature of a black market to find the work-arounds...that's why it exists in the first place.

And, the very EXISTENCE of a black market is a strong signal that your economy is on life-support, so yeah, the black market currency IS the least of anybody's worries.

With this foreign banking compliance law, what strategies are left for Americans who want to live outside the US? If an American cannot open a bank account outside the US, does this effectively trap all US citizens within the confines of the US?

(or else you have to be COMPLETELY detached from the US banking system and not require ANY kind of financial transaction)

The best part is how "sanctions" against Russia are stopping the IGA process, which is something that Russia was never going to agree to in the first place.  That's right, the punishment for Russia is to be treated the same as most of the rest of the world.  And for the fools who signed up, they are left with options of "kick out all 'us person' accounts" or "pay hilarious amounts of money to ensure compliance".  

 

To make it even more fun.  Russia is on record stating that being hit with basically what amounts to flat out theft via FATCA would be interpreted as an act of war triggering military actions.

I know you know, because you're here, but the fact a cartel of private, probably mostly foreign banks, creates our currency out of thin air and loans it to us at interest, and we work 1/3 of the year to pay it back...  I mean that shit is amazing, that trick....  but more amazing is the fact 95% of the American people don't know and/or care...  probably not fully grasping the implications - the sheer colon-tearing ass rape of it all.

'Hubris'
The characteristic of excessive confidence or arrogance, which leads a person to believe that he or she may do no wrong. The overwhelming pride caused by hubris is often considered a flaw in character. While these hubris feelings are often justified, they often cause irrational and harmful behavior.
Investopedia explains 'Hubris'

Hubris may be developed after a person encounters a period of success. Corporate executives and traders overcome by hubris may become a liability for their firms. A manager might start making business decisions without fully thinking through the consequences, or a trader may begin taking on excessive risk. In many cases, people overcome by hubris will bring about their own downfall.

I think this sounds about right.

"New World Currency will be presented to an incredulous world

The New One World Currency, which will be presented to an incredulous community, is designed to control you. Then once that happens they will try to deprive you of food. Unless My children accept this reality now they will be defenceless when they are under the control of a New World Order, led by masonic forces. Prepare now, My children, because although The Warning will convert millions, including those loyal to the One World Order, it will not be enough to stop these evil slaves of Satan and the antichrist. Without control of your money, you will find it hard to defend your right to property, food and health, the three things which they will be in charge of, if you do not start shouting your opposition now. Stop your leaders in their tracks. Don’t let them bully you. If enough of you are alert to this evil, monstrous plan, then you can warn others.

Plan your food supplies now
Plan your food supplies now. Grow and buy seeds that will keep you alive. Buy silver coins or gold, so that you can buy what is necessary. Most importantly find locations where, as a group, you can meet to offer the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. For in time, your churches will be burned to the ground."
