Expropriation Is Back - Is Christine Lagarde The Most Dangerous Woman In The World?

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Submitted by Martin Armstrong of Armstrong Economics,

Lagarde-Christine

I have gone on record that the most dangerous organization is the now French led IMF with Christine Lagarde at the helm, which has presented a concept report that debt cuts for over-indebted states are uncompromising and are to be performed more effectively in the future by defaulting on retirement accounts held in life insurance, mutual funds and other types of pension schemes, or arbitrarily extending debt perpetually so you cannot redeem. Yes you read correctly, The new IMF paper is described in great detail exactly how to now allow the private sector, which has invested in government bonds,  to be expropriated to pay for the national debts of the socialist governments.

I have been warning that there is an idea that has been running around behind the curtain that the national debt of the USA could be settled by usurping all pension funds in the country. Here is a remarkable blueprint that throws all previous considerations concerning the purchase of government bonds over the cliff. The IMF working paper from December 2013 states boldly:

“The distinction between external debt and domestic debt can be quite important. Domestic debt issued in domestic currency typically offers a far wider range of partial default options than does foreign currency–denominated external debt. Financial repression has already been mentioned; governments can stuff debt into local pension funds and insurance companies, forcing them through regulation to accept far lower rates of return than they might otherwise demand.”

id/Page 8 (IMF-Sovereign-Debt-Crisis)

Already in October 2013, the International Monetary Fund (IMF), suggested the Euro Crisis should be handled by raising taxes. The IMF lobbied for a property tax in Europe that should be imposed where there are no such taxes. The IMF has advocated for a general “debt tax” in the amount of 10 percent for each household in the Eurozone, which also has only modest savings.

People are blind. They think this is authorization to go get the rich. They are going after everyone for the “rich” are tiny players in the game. People do not want to hear that. They want to think the rich can pay the bills for everyone else. That is not practical and even Julius Caesar recognized that they may be a small group, but they are the engine of the economy that creates jobs. It would have been popular for him to wipe out all the rich who he was against. But in the end, he had to solve the debt crisis by simply retroactively attribute all interest to capital in order to solve the debt crisis that led to the first civil war.

There is no discussion whatsoever of reforming the system. They are merely planning to default on savers expropriating their savings, but continue to borrow forever. Nobody is even bothering to look at the structure that simply cannot work.

The money people have saved the IMF maintains should be used for debt service by sheer force. To reduce the enormous national debt, they maintain that government has the right to directly usurp the savings of citizens. Whether saving money, securities or real estate, about ten percent could be expropriated. This is the IMF view. 

Because the government debt of the euro countries has increased a total of well over 90 percent of gross domestic product, they suggest that the people should sacrifice their savings for the benefit of the state. Socialism is no longer to help the poor against the rich, but to help the government against the people. The definition has changed.

In January 2014, the Bundesbank joined the IMF project focusing on a “wealth tax”. In its monthly report they had announced: “In the exceptional situation of an imminent state bankruptcy a one-time capital levy could but cheaper cut than the then still relevant options” if higher taxes or drastic limitations of government spending did not meet or could not be implemented.

In the latest June 2014 working paper of the IMF, they have set forth yet another scheme – extending maturity. So you bought a 2 year note? Well, the IMF possible solution would be to simply extend the maturity. Your 2 year note now become 20 year bond. They do not default, you just can never redeem.

Possible remedy. The preliminary ideas in this paper would introduce greater flexibility  into the 2002 framework by providing the Fund with a broader range of potential policy responses in the context of sovereign debt distress, while addressing the concerns that  motivated the 2002 framework. Specifically, in circumstances where a member has lost  market access and debt is considered sustainable, but not with high probability, the Fund would be able to provide exceptional access on the basis of a debt operation that involves an extension of maturities (normally without any reduction of principal or interest). Such a “reprofiling” operation, coupled with the implementation of a credible adjustment program, would be designed to improve the prospect of securing sustainability and regaining market access, without having to meet the criterion of restoring debt sustainability with high probability.

(THE FUND’S LENDING FRAMEWORK AND SOVEREIGN June 2014)

Now the June 2014 report has a new, far-reaching proposal. This shows how lawyers think in technical definitions of words. There is no actual default if they extend the maturity. You could buy 30-day paper in the middle of a crisis and suddenly find under the IMF that 30 day note is converted to 30 year bond at the same rate.

The huge national debts could be reduced also according to the IMF by just expropriating all private pension funds. The vast amount of people are watching TV shows, sports, or something other than government and they know that. The press will not report the real risk for that is boring news. Hence, where his occupational pensions exist, you can suddenly wake up and find your future is now applied as a contribution to government – thank you for your patriotism. They have successfully convinced the evil is the rich so pay attention to them and you will miss the political hand in your back pocket.

What investor can really judge what is hidden in his fund when the government is denying democratic processes and control the press?

One thing is certain: For years, all pension funds bought government bonds because they were “conservative” and “safe”. I have been warning that the threat would be the Sovereign Debt Crisis. The idea of a pension fund is really now seriously an outdated assumption that government bonds are extremely safe. And you want to even think that the stock markets are over priced and will crash? Where will money go? Government bonds again?

The IMF is an unelected dictatorship over people’s lives and it is now calling the “New profile” of the strategy for public debt must be reassessed. The paper is nothing more than an orderly liquidation of government debt – at the expense of bondholders who can be forced pensioners without their knowledge. The focus is on countries that either have no access to the financial market, or “whose debt is considered sustainable, but not with a high probability.”

The Eurozone is trying to federalize because they know what is coming. The IMF is telling them the path of options ahead but all are designed to sustain the power-base, not what is good for the people. The Euro-leaders have now given up and decided to make more debt while maintaining lip-service to savings. Thus, the Eurozone is likely to soon be directly affected by the IMF plans for when the market get wind of this on the horizon, it will be too late. For you see, pension funds do not THINK out of the box. Nobody will be the first to sell-out government bonds entirely. What if they are wrong and nothing happens? Then the manager loses their job. Even if they find themselves trapped by government either extending their maturities or expropriating all their assets, they will justify themselves as everybody else lost so they did nothing wrong.

Obviously, these ideas from the IMF would mean that if the debt is no longer manageable, then the power of government entitles them to just usurp everything to maintain the power-base. The plan of the IMF I believe will result in widespread civil unrest AFTER the fact. The mere fact that these proposals target investors in government bonds who must adjust to debt forgiveness or negative interest rates shows this is all about sustaining government power. Recently, the IMF has argued the ECB must purchase government bonds in the euro countries to sustain the Eurozone. They are like the terrorist leaders who brainwash kids to blow themselves up for the good of the cause while they would never do the same thing themselves.

It is noteworthy that the IMF imagines this haircut on private creditors as a kind of condition that bankrupt states must do to get any further loans from official creditors. Do as we direct of else. This is what the IMF is doing to Ukraine, no less what they did to Cyprus.

However, unlike private corporate debt where there are the real balances and tangible assets secured by real products and business, the IMF proposal amounts to a global nationalization of public finances, which are unsecured debt. This distinction is important. You get nothing from defaults in government debt but a portion of what remains in private debt. Because the states with the this infinite loop of perpetual borrowing with no intent on paying anything back, we are captured in a world of financing that has become completely corrupted.

The debt load of governments on a global basis is so oppressive, we are rapidly approaching not just the collapse in Democracy, but the collapse or the elimination of all market mechanisms in the public finance. If they cannot sustain the debt, default and FORCE the so many unsuspecting pensioners to surrender their future to allow politicians to live comfortably. They see no problem with people holding government debt should be punishable with massive losses, and are blame for extorting government even demanding interest.

The IMF proposal comes during the World Cup knowing that the press will not cover it much and the average person cares more about who wins what than the sneak attack upon their own lives. This far-reaching plan for the expropriation of savers, investors and retirees clearly shows the reality of socialism.

“In the exceptional situation of an imminent state bankruptcy a one-time capital levy could but cheaper cut than the then still relevant options”

So the central banks pump up wealth (asset prices) with the "wealth effect", then their host governments seize it in a one-time levy?  That's pretty fucking sinister, even for central bankers.

As thread by Pinto Currency above indicated (right at the beginning) : “I do as I am told…”

So she’s not as dangerous as the ones with God complex told her what to do.

Funny PAF.  A little off topic, but your reference to Orange made me laugh about a sighting I had this week. 

I was just up in Oregon and on my way to PDX and decided to go to one of the waterfalls that drain into the Columbia River.  It is a pretty busy spot (right on a major freeway just east of Portland) but we were having trouble parking.  We parked way out in the boonies (unlike most of the other blubber butt 'merikans waddling up to the falls, I dont mind walking) to avoid the hassles.  While walking up to the sight, my Spidy senses started tingling when I spotted the first blacked-out Suburban.  Then I started noticing the guys with earpieces, then I started noticing the body armor, and other signs that there was something going down and that was causing the traffic jam.

My daughter, said "must be somebody important." (with sarcasm I am proud to say).  I answered that it was probably a fucking politician.  I hung back a little, not wanting to walk right into another Boston Marathon or something and just watched a little.  In a couple minutes, our very own Orange Man, Speaker "TanMan" Boner came walking down the walk with a huge security detail around him.  He was apparently just hanging out viewing the falls like the rest of us, but unlike the rest of us, he "needed" 50 heavily armed (and armored) tough guys to escort him safely through the dangerous FOB.  You could have sworn he was getting ready to retake Tikrit from those terrorists we have been arming.

Anyway, he was way too tan, and had way too much security...

Things in Australia are changing fast. The current batch of elected "leaders" have difficulty hiding their contempt for the 'people' and are using the current budget protests as an excuse to beef up their personel security details at the expese of the same people they despise.

The fascist Attorney General, the US-puppet Foreign Minister, and the rest of the cabinet are card-carrying members of the anglo-zionist squad. Aside of destroying the Australian middle class, they are stirring dissenters to justify a crackdown on the few personal freedoms left in this country. Remeber when Howard, the same cocksucker that grabbed the guns, tried to propose the national ID card in 05/06, what about the sedition laws, remember that?

Look at Abbot today declaring Australian was unsettled before the British arrived. Why would he declare something like that if not to stir up revolt?

In case you didn't know, we have a Liberal government. I know it's hard for you left-wingers to understand, especially after 6 long, hard years of socialism in Australia. 

The Liberals gained over 50% of the vote! We're not talking about them representing a minority. Stop engineering left-wing fantasies.

Accept it that the Labor/Greens alliance is no longer in power. In won't return to power in the next election either. So the sooner you accept this, the better.

You know nothing about me and yet label me a left-winger because I dare to criticize your corporate-state-overlords?

How slow are you?

Several times I have voiced my opinion that the left-right political zeitgeist in Australia is nothing but a pincer movement agains the middle class. The left through welfare state cloward-piven style and over-regulation, the right through corporate welfare, wars and draconic laws.

One would only have to look at matters in which both parties agree, such as support for US nation-building, support for Israel, Trans-Pacific-Partnership to be able to tell it's all staged.

Totally agree. We have been occupied by American forces since WW2. That fact alone is enough to show anyone who our master is. 

But I think Abbott is a bit unique in that he tows the line only so far as he has to. Abbott has criticised the US economic actions.

But you can see that Abbott is developing stronger ties with China and Japan than he is with the US. Call me stupid, but I think Abbott is trying to make tiny movements away from our US masters. He's copping a lot of flack for it, but I think he is trying.

Abbott's proximity to Rupert Murdoch is enough to tell he is a corporate lackey. That's why he criticises US democrat economic actions, but not the bi-partisan ones.

The masters ruling over the US are the same as the ones ruling over Australia.

Christine Lagarde would never have become head of IMF if not for the successful conspiracy to discredit IMF frontrunner Dominique Strauss-Kahn.  DSK paid for sex with a hotel maid in New York and then was arrested for rape.  The maid, an emigre from Mali who came to the USA falsely claiming prosecution, was working on her normal day off.  The Criminal Court judge who first heard the case, Priscilla Jackson, got her appointment to the bench through the intercession of Mayor Bloomberg.  Proably also working on her normal day off.  DSK left his phone in his hotel room, so he phoned the hotel asking if anyone found his phone.  The hotel staff, on orders of the police, said no.  If DSK returned to the hotel, there would not be an element of flight, later used to justify Jackson's decision to jail him without bail.  Besides, people were busy copying everything on his phone's memory card.  With DSK in jail and disgraced, Lagarde got appointed to head the IMF.

No one in law enforcement seemed to havea problem with DSK until he was to head the IMF.  Years before his arrest in NYC, DSK was involved with unsavory incidents with other women, all incidents ignored by the police.  Not much different than the rape charge made against NYPD Police Commissioner Kelly's son, a charge never investigated properly by the corrupt Manhattan DA, Cyrus Vance.  The same Vance who stated that there was no video of the hotel maid while she was in the hotel, not even from the elevator cameras.

DSK was set up as he was questioning where or if there was any gold left. We all know what happened after, to both DSK & the gold.

Forgive the coarse language, but the following is who Hillary REALLY is.         These quotes are all documented.   If you think you might be offended then ..  READ NO  MORE         STOP HERE     And people wonder why she would not make a good president..?      EIGHT QUOTES FROM 8 DIFFERENT BOOKS   Her actual words:   (1)
"Where is the Godamn flag..?  I want the Godamn fucking flag up every morning at fucking sunrise...!!"   From the book "Inside the White House" by Ronald Kessler, p. 244; Hillary to staff at the Arkansas Governor's mansion on Labor Day 1991.
                                          
  (2)
“Fuck off !!! It's enough I have to see you shit-kickers every day! I'm not going to talk to you, too!! Just do your Godamn job and keep your mouth shut...!!!"   From the book "America Evita" by Christopher Anderson, p. 90; Hillary to her State Trooper bodyguards after one of them greeted her with "Good Morning."

                                             
(3)

"If you want to remain on this detail, get your fucking ass over here and grab those bags!" From the book "The First Partner" p. 259; Hillary to a Secret Service Agent who was reluctant to carry her luggage because he wanted to keep his hands free in case of an incident.
                                    
 
  (4)
"Stay the Fuck back... Stay the Fuck back away from me !!!  Don't come within ten yards of me, or else !!!  Just fucking do as I say, Okay!!?"   From the book "Unlimited Access" by Clinton ’s FBI Agent-in-Charge, Gary Aldridge, p. 139; Hillary is screaming at her Secret Service detail.

                                     

  (5) "Where's the miserable cock sucker?" (otherwise known as “Bill Clinton”) From the book "The Truth about Hillary" by Edward Klein, p. 5; Hillary shouting at a Secret Service officer.

                                

    (6) "You fucking idiot !!!!" From the book, "Crossfire," p. 84; Hillary to a State Trooper who was driving her to an event.

                                  

(7)
"Put this plane on the ground... I left my sunglasses in the limo.  I need those fucking sunglasses...  We need to go back !!! ! From the book " Dereliction of Duty" p. 71-72; Hillary to Marine One helicopter pilot to turn back while en route to Air Force One.

                                    

  (8)
"Come on Bill, put your dick away!  You can't Fuck her here!! "   From the book "Inside the White House" by Ronald Kessler, p. 243; Hillary to Gov. Bill Clinton when she spots him talking with an attractive female.   * * * * *
                     
This ill-tempered, violent, loud-mouth, hateful and abusive woman wants to be your next President, and have total control as Commander and Chief of our Military, the very Military for which she has shown incredible disdain throughout her public life.   Remember her most vile comment about Benghazi : “What difference at this point does it make ?????”

Expropriation Is Back - Is Christine Lagarde The Most Dangerous Woman In The World? 

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2014-07-03/expropriation-back-christine-lagarde-most-dangerous-woman-world 

 

There is no discussion whatsoever of reforming the system. They are merely planning to default on savers expropriating their savings, but continue to borrow forever. Nobody is even bothering to look at the structure that simply cannot work.

The money people have saved the IMF maintains should be used for debt service by sheer force. To reduce the enormous national debt, they maintain that government has the right to directly usurp the savings of citizens.

In the latest June 2014 working paper of the IMF, they have set forth yet another scheme – extending maturity. So you bought a 2 year note? Well, the IMF possible solution would be to simply extend the maturity. Your 2 year note now become 20 year bond. They do not default, you just can never redeem.

  More signs of desperation signaling we have reached an end to the carrot dangling portion of governing- falling GDP and rising government bureaucratic overburden has assured a certain projected shortfall in walking around money for funding political opportunism.

  This globally inspired notion of sovereign states feeling comfortable in nationalizing the use of private property to balance the books of central banking interests will be the end of our middle class.

  Once the bond market has been compromised beyond repair it will distort forever institutional markets, couple that with a collapsing overall economic environment and we are in for a very turbulent future.

  On the other hand, it's beginning to appear we will soon see what those federal hollow point and millions of doses of Potassium Iodide purchases were all about.

get serious? ok, let's get serious. who is Mr. Armstrong? an professional forecaster, operating from the US and Switzerland

who made a prediction in 1997, saying that the EUR will transform currency speculation in bond speculation, "leading to the system's eventual collapse"

note that by that, he was acknowleging the rampant currency speculation that we had in the eurozone before the introduction of the EUR

also note all the articles in ZH which show how much FX speculations and riggings were done - and in part are still done - by megabanks and insiders

imho Armstrong is correct in this: if intra-FX in the eurozone is beyond speculators and riggers, the only other thing they can "play with" is... bonds

and by the virtue and vice of the EUR of behaving as if it was a foreign currency for everybody, debt denominated in EUR is... "harder", both to repay or default through devaluation

yet I have to ask: is there really a difference between "the kind of" defaults? for the investor?

if I buy a bond from Rightistan and one from Leftistan, in Rightistan the currency is devalued by 10% and in Leftistan the loss is the same 10% due to an arbitrary extension of maturities... the same loss is still the same loss

Meanwhile, by putting all this emphasis on Lagarde, the French and the IMF's advice (because nevertheless what the IMF offers here is talk - the policies "to be adopted" would be adopted by eur sovereigns, not the IMF), he is jumping on a very strange bandwagon: the one that makes the US Congress the only one stakeholder of the IMF that does not want to change the IMF's stakeholdership. mainly because it wants to keep the US as the major shareholder in the IMF

against all the others, mainly China and Russia who lead a group of emerging economies which are looking to get either a major role in the IMF, or to set up themselves similar clubs

and this is the true elephant in the IMF room. and it's a no-no conversational theme for all economic info-mercial writers... including Mr. Armstrong

The best you can do is try to get in on a scam.    Just how life worked out in our scam based society.

All enabled by the duly elected visionary political elite using your tax dollars & future tax revenues despite constitutional rules & limitations! They keep the punchbowl filled to the brim & are hosting an incredibly hot party for V.I.P.'s only ................all on your dime! Good luck cleaning up the mess!

They are neither making the rules or just dopey.... they are following the script written by others for them ... the global fascism plan... GFP administered by the IMF to 'help' your GDP as a member of the G20.  This part of the plan must be item # 26 in the list to bring the world under the world government umbrella run by international financiers, bankers and errand boy politicians.

"Debt"?

what debt - it's fiat out of thin air, people should work more of the year to give bankers back shit they just printed.

The future is debt repudiation,isn't it? Unless the people running things prefer martial law and war? But who would prefer that to just dispensing haircuts to banks that AREN'T ACTUALLY LOSING ANYTHING by getting back pennies on the euro...

I get, obviously, why bankers don't want debt repudiation, jubilee, whatever, but riddle me this - why aren't "progressives" like Paul Krugman talking about it - even if jut for say developing/emergings?

WTF, Paul?

You know this money is funny...

Paul is part of the establishment.  Just like most other eCONomists.  Same as always.   Rear view mirror drivers.  Work selectively employed to reinforce the status quo for the rich and powerful.

Debt repudiation is coming.  Not for us my friend.  But for governments.  We get the martial law and war.  Also, same as always.

Whenever I feel sort of depressed about all the corruption and theft and the obvious creeping police state I try to remind myself that it could be worse - I mean people are travelling thousands of miles to work as dishwashers here.

Little do they know that every life boat has a max carrying capacity, and there's a million other dishwashers right behind them....

Can't blame 'em of course, but is it any wonder Central America never gets its shit together when they can just export their poor and they send back cash?

Well - that, and all the .gov interference every time they try to act in their own self interest, which may not be exactly free market capitalism given the specifics of their situation...

numerology, including kabbala, wiccan, etc. - is of course, complete horseshit.

Watch "Pi" for fuck's sake - or that Jim Carrey movie. Or read an intro psych book on expectation bias and availability heuristics.

If you think something has meaning and look for it - you'll find it - especially numbers.

But, alright let's just say that's my opinion... I find the complete lack of empirical evidence that numerology predicts or describes anything as evidence that it is probably not predictive or descriptive...

But - it is curious that she would mention all this 7 shit.

Chaos Magick is the shit, though.

Belief is a tool....

However, even though numerology and astrology are bullshit, the fact some people give them credit is what may make them worth understanding

So then...

http://www.chabad.org/holidays/default_cdo/year/2014/jewish/2014-Holiday...

July 15th in our calendar....

that's a thing.

But I think July 4th weekends is when some ME shit, planned months ago, could go down. Hope I'm wrong.

While I and many/most others can agree with that statement, the problem arises when you have a group of already Psychotic, conscienceless people in high offices who DO believe this, they make decisions that connect to these crazy ideas...their attempts to make them Fit can result in them occurring. Surely we've already been seeing a lot of this already. The percentage of Psychos in high offices is off the chart

I hear ya, I just find it hard to believe most people with the pwoer to decide to start a war are engaging in anything out of ancient babylon>kabbalah>freemasonry?boy scouts...

whereas, maybe some things have been moved up or down a day to say, coincide with a holiday [claims about Purim attacks on x, y, z by Israel, or devil's night, guy fawkes day, etc. - not exclusive to any group].

All else aside - 2 years ago, I would have thought anyone suggesting the US was trying to start ww3 was just nuts... now, I have to concede that US policy doesn't seem designed to do much but "vanquish all foes" to include russia and china.

Not quite sure how much "the bankers" are really behind it. I mean some people love attributing all the drive towards war to a mysterious cohesive group - freemasons, illuminati... but where's the evidence, actual evidence?

Always fair to ask who benefits, and there, for sure, you have to concede that bankers and war profiteers quite obviously benefit from war.

since ww3 would be super duper bad [hows that "Bunker 911" in Israel coming along, by the way, anyone know? Does DHS have secret bunkers in Utah by chance>?] - if and to the extent bilderbergers and club of rome and everyon'es favorite Goldstein "The Rothschilds" are really so greedy and psycho...

Why isn't anyone else in government, not in that loop, but with command of military force, taking them out?

Please dont tell me he deaths of a handful of minor league bankers, not even statistically significant I'd bet, is the work of The Brotherhood.

Well then you have not studied history very well.  Adolf Hitler used the ancient technique known as scrying to decide where in the ocean he would send German U-boats (submarines).  He would have his soldiers hold a crystal on a string above a map, swing it in clockwise circles, and wherever it landed once it dropped, that's where the boats went.  It's called scrying.

Real shit, not even joking.  Look it up. All psychopaths who feed off of raw power and suffering believe in this kind of shit.

Since you think astrology is horseshit, have you ever questioned why the moon effects the tide? More horseshit?

Given your body is about 60% water, could that affect you too?

Try observing behavior during a full moon.
