Guest Post: Does the Bank of England Worry About The Cantillon Effect?

Tyler Durden's picture




 

Submitted by John Aziz of Azizonomics,

The empirical data is in. And it turns out that as I have been suggesting for a very long time — yes, shock horror — helicopter dropping cash onto the financial sector does disproportionately favour the rich.

The Guardian:

The richest 10% of households in Britain have seen the value of their assets increase by up to £322,000 as a result of the Bank of England‘s attempts to use electronic money creation to lift the economy out of its deepest post-war slump.

 

Threadneedle Street said that wealthy families had been the biggest beneficiaries of its £375bn quantitative-easing (QE) programme, under which it has been buying government gilts for cash since early 2009.

 

The Bank of England calculated that the value of shares and bonds had risen by 26% – or £600bn – as a result of the policy, equivalent to £10,000 for each household in the UK. It added, however, that 40% of the gains went to the richest 5% of households.

 

Although the Bank said it could not come up with precise figures for the gains from QE, estimates can be produced using wealth distribution data from the Office for National Statistics. These show the average boost to the holdings of financial assets and pensions of the richest 10% of households would have been either £128,000 per household or £322,000 depending on the methodology used.

Here are a few questions for Britain’s monetary overlords at the BoE:

  1. Are you concerned about the long-term social and economic implications of a monetary policy that enriches the rich over and above everyone else?
  2. Are you familiar with the concept of the Cantillon Effect whereby the creation and allocation of new money transfers purchasing power to whoever it is allocated to? Did you consider this effect prior to embarking on a program of quantitative easing to the financial sector?
  3. Given the financial sector’s awful track record in terms of blowing up the economy, fabricating LIBOR data for its own enrichment, and neglecting cash-starved small businesses, is the financial sector an appropriate allocator of new money?
  4. Now that the empirical record shows the policy of helicopter-dropping cash directly to the financial sector disproportionately favours the rich, have you considered changing course and adopting a different monetary policy that doesn’t favour any particular group?

Sadly, I expect to see the announcement of more quantitative easing to the financial sector long before I expect to see answers to any of these questions.

Query from a Dr Ron Paul supporter;

Is The Federal Reserve System Wholly Owned by the Federal Government for the United States of America?

Yes or No, and what answer do most sheeple believe?

Gads.  May as well be asking what it means for n-dimensional hyperspheres to be tangent to each other.

Most folks don't know what the Fed IS, let alone who owns it.

Dial it back a step, eh?  Give 'em a chance.

"Is The Federal Reserve System Wholly Owned by the Federal Government for the United States of America?"

NO

The Federal Reserve is owned by The House of Rothschild. The House of Rothschild owns our FED, The Bank of England, and ALL the central banks of the world except.......Iran, North Korea, Cuba, and Sudan.

Recent additions to their collection:
Libya
Iraq
Afghanistan (soon,or done)

"what answer do most sheeple believe?"
YES

EDIT:
Related,the IRS was created at the same time as The Fed, to collect taxes. Dear retarded citizens,including thugs that will arrest us freedom fighters: Did you know your income tax goes abroad? Right to House of Rothschild. Moron, fool thugs who will arrest/detain us freedom fighters, do you now understand why we went into LIBYA and IRAQ?????????? HELLO, anybody in there???? hopeless

   The Federal Reserve is owned by The House of Rothschild.

Well, then again, that's not right either.  It may be about half owned by Rothschild, but even that's a stretch.

There are a LOT of different fingers in that pie.

There, I posted the flowchart. Rothschild is at the very top.

That flowchart is from a 1976 report, dating back to the days when investment banks were much smaller and playing with their partners' money.

Rothschild (the bank) expanded way less than many of the others. I knew two people who worked there in the mid-90s - one Pakistani muslim, one Indian hindu. (Do I detect an Indian conspiracy? In fact they didn't get on.) One once told me he met then director, Norman Lamont in the lift*. (Like my two friends, and JM KEYNES a Cambridge graduate, do I detect a Cambridge conspiracy?) They both thought it was a backwater and more important didn't pay enough, and got out into bulge bracket banks as soon as they could.

So I'd contend that your 'flowchart' is pretty irrelevant in 2012. Who are the current shareholders of the FED? (I think that's in the public domain). 

*"He [Norman Lamont]is as stupid as everyone says." "How do you know." "Well, I told him a joke, and he didn't get it."

1. yes - thats why the y published the research

2. yes - r u suggesting they didnt do their PPE reading while up at Oxford?

3. yes- it remains the most efficient allocator and right now the only allocator

4. yes - the effect was obvious but a secondary consequence to the main aim of QE. but as you know and have pointed out - just as we know and have pointed out - that monetary policy is not distributionally netural.

q99z2 nailed it.  I am pretty sure we all have seen the statistics that showed for several years now the world stockpiles of grains is equal to about 42 days consumption and that we have been just one bad harvest in a major grain producing region away from serious hunger even in the G7 nations. 

Already the price of grain has gotten so high that farmers are sending grain eating livestock to slaughter, and in the case of dairy cows the extra expense will be passed on in dairy products where possible, so much so it will crush demand for dairy products and many marginal producers will simply drop out of the industry.  Once the sudden glut of meat is sold from this activity the remaining cow will be too expensive to eat for all but the wealthiest consumers. 

And, if there is hunger in the developed world there will be vast starvation in the developing world. 

Well the USA, and Canada are having the worst harvest in 50 years, and as if that were not bad enough Australian and Russian harvests are down significantly as well.  I have not seen data on China, but there were stories a few weeks ago about really historic flooding there.  How bad is it?  America produces one third of the worlds corn and soybeans and half the expected American crop is now thought to be lost.  It is not much better in Canada.  September delivery contracts in Chicago are already up 30% in the last month and that is just the beginning, and remember it is not just cattle that eat the feed that is not getting harvested, corn syrup is in almost everything.  Including your gas tank.

Commodities market analysts have estimated that Russia’s harvest will be 6 to 7 million tons less than originally projected and exports are already sharply curtailed.

"...the western Australian wheat crop has been damaged by lack of rain and repeated frosts, degrading the quality of much of the harvest. Grain output in the region may drop as much as 40 percent. Along with the US, Russia and Canada, Australia is one of the world’s top wheat producers."

One of the problems here is that when stockpiles are this small a drawdown starts to become a cycle of drawdown's.  A slippery slope.  And hunger on a global scale is not a condition one can simply muddle through till another harvest a year from now, and if we have another bad year in 2013?  You would think the very first thing they would do is place a temporary cease and desist on conversion of food quality grains to fuels.  As far as I know they have not even thought of that.  And when 90% of us are spending half our incomes just to eat the cheapest crap we can find and the upper 10% are eating as they always have it will start to look more and more like the riot scenes from Soylent Green.  Bring in the scoops.  Remember that more than a billion people live on less than $2 per day, if markets are right that will very soon put a day's food out of reach even if those people spend 100% of income on food.

I have read a ton of speculation here around what it will take to get the sheep to open their eyes and restore their nation, one can only afford to keep eyes closed through life when one's belly is full.

So, was this not the intention from the start? The rich are the job creators, the extra wealth they get from QE asset inflation is plowed back into the economy creating jobs and expanding the wealth down the ladder to benefit all Britains. This much should be self evident.

QE is doing what it was meant to, getting the wealth creating job creators into a good financial postion so they can preceed to get that wealth trickeling down to all. Reagan proved this sytem to be the best available wealth creation system here in America in the 80's, Britain was smart to adopt trickle down and to use QE as a stimulus. The rich benefit more because they are harder working and smarter, it is their success that leads to job creation and economic growth. The UK is on the right track to recovery and wide scale prosperity. QE is a magic trick that works for all.

Q.  "Here are a few questions for Britain’s monetary overlords at the BoE:

Are you concerned about the long-term social and economic implications of a monetary policy that enriches the rich over and above everyone else.

  • Public Answer:  We are deeply concerned and as soon as the recovery is stable we will end this policy.
  • Private Thought:  ROFLMAO!

Are you familiar with the concept of the Cantillon Effect whereby the creation and allocation of new money transfers purchasing power to whoever it is allocated to? Did you consider this effect prior to embarking on a program of quantitative easing to the financial sector?

  • Public Answer:  We are not familiar with this effect nor its raminfications but will study it.
  • Private Thought:  The Cantillon Effect is the foundational paradigm for our money allocation you ninny!

Given the financial sector’s awful track record in terms of blowing up the economy, fabricating LIBOR data for its own enrichment, and neglecting cash-starved small businesses, is the financial sector an appropriate allocator of new money?

  • Public Answer:  It was a crisis, we had to act, the financial sector could not be lost.
  • Private Thought:  We are the financial sector, and the financial sector is us - Siamese Twins joined at the hip, or did you miss the "Bank" part of "Bank of England?"

Now that the empirical record shows the policy of helicopter-dropping cash directly to the financial sector disproportionately favours the rich, have you considered changing course and adopting a different monetary policy that doesn’t favour any particular group?

  • Public Answer:  The cash is vital to restore employment and retain a standard of living for the middle class.
  • Private Thought:  Change course?  Not favour the rich?  Are you mad!?!?  Full steam ahead to Xanadu!

Politicians at every level of govt. have as their job the spending of other peoples earned money. The first choice is to spend or not to spend on individual areas. If they have funded something before , it is near certain that it will be continued to be funded at the same level or higher regardless of the merit of the program. Spending nearly always continues until all the funds are expended and then debt is often issued to expand spending though the need is  doubtful. Not spending money is regarded as irresponsible. Politicians that try to curb spending are visciously attacked as stupid, crazy, or cruel.

Politicians do not have "jobs" in the conventional understanding that you or I have. Politicians have a goal. That goal is the accumulation of power and increasing the extent of their control over the lives of "the People". Taking money from the people and spending that money is how they accomplish their goal. It is certainly not their" job".

CHART 1
=======
** Federal Reserve Directors: A Study of Corporate and Banking Influence **
Staff Report, Committee on Banking,Currency and Housing,
House of Representatives, 94th Congress, 2nd Session, August 1976.
=======================================================================
CHART 1 reveals the linear connection between the Rothschilds and the Bank
of England, and the London banking houses which ultimately control the
Federal Reserve Banks through their stockholdings of bank stock and their
subsidiary firms in New York. The two principal Rothschild representatives
in New York, J. P. Morgan Co., and Kuhn,Loeb & Co. were the firms which
set up the Jekyll Island Conference at which the Federal Reserve Act was
drafted, who directed the subsequent successful campaign to have the plan
enacted into law by Congress, and who purchased the controlling amounts
of stock in the Federal Reserve Bank of New York in 1914. These firms
had their principal officers appointed to the Federal Reserve Board of
Governors and the Federal Advisory Council in 1914. In 1914 a few
families (blood or business related) owning controlling stock in existing
banks (such as in New York City) caused those banks to purchase controlling
shares in the Federal Reserve regional banks. Examination of the charts
and text in the House Banking Committee Staff Report of August, 1976
and the current stockholders list of the 12 regional Federal Reserve
Banks show this same family control.

** Federal Reserve Directors: A Study of Corporate and Banking Influence **
- Published 1983

The J. Henry Schroder Banking Company chart encompasses the entire history
of the twentieth century, embracing as it does the program (Belgium Relief
Commission) which provisioned Germany from 1915-1918 and dissuaded Germany
from seeking peace in 1916; financing Hitler in 1933 so as to make a Second
World War possible; backing the Presidential campaign of Herbert Hoover ;
and even at the present time, having two of its major executives of its
subsidiary firm, Bechtel Corporation serving as Secretary of Defense and
Secretary of State in the Reagan Administration.

The head of the Bank of England since 1973, Sir Gordon Richardson, Governor
of the Bank of England (controlled by the House of Rothschild) was chairman
of J. Henry Schroder Wagg and Company of London from 1963-72, and director
of J. Henry Schroder,New York and Schroder Banking Corporation,New York,as
well as Lloyd's Bank of London, and Rolls Royce. He maintains a residence
on Sutton Place in New York City, and as head of "The London Connection,"
can be said to be the single most influential banker in the world.

What exactly were you trying to prove with your quite lengthy and mostly incomprehensible, "try connecting the dots", comment/post?

IIRC, two of the stated reasons for a lowish inflation target are:

- that inflation has adverse redistributive effects &

- that it degrades the efficiency of the price 'mechanism' in allocating resources.

The BoE's estimates on redistribution are an admission that QE is antithetical to the first & it can only have an effect via the second.

But WTF...

Why on earth is the BoE publishing a report that basically says "my bad"?

It added, however, that 40% of the gains went to the richest 5% of households.

 

And we can easily assume that if 40% went to 5% of the richest then 90% went to 10% of the richest households.  Only  little better than the states where an unknown number of trillions of dollars went to just 0.0001% of the population and th rest of us got stuck with A) inflation and B) trillions in new debt because unlike GB here in the USA QE has been in effect a negative tax on the class known as the super wealthy who were targeted to recieve it in the first place. 

And wasn't the excuse for the start of this we have to saturate the investor class and banksters with money or the whole system will collapse?  And that would have been worse than years of depression for the vast majority how?

Well, you figured out what I have been saying for three years. congratulations. take this with george washington's post today about bondholders not taking haircuts. and you get what each and every financial resuce program has really been about. restoring the wealth to the wealthy that they lost in the crisis. Please send to krugman wo refuses to admit the bernanke loose monetary policy benefits the wealthy the most. since the majority of the economy (not owning assets) is actually the "economy" you can never make an economy better by making 90%% worse off. and they wonder why the uk (which has done the mkost Qe per capita) isn't getting better. So they will do more. It's fucking insanity and the people of the uk should be in revolt
