As I warned last week, while most of the investment world has been glued to their trading screens watching the stock market rally.. something nefarious has been unfolding behind the scenes.
That “something” is the Fed and other regulators implementing plans that will begin allow for large-scale cash grabs when the next downturn hits.
While stocks roared higher, Fed officials began openly calling for more extreme monetary policies including NEGATIVE Interest Rate Policy or NIRP.
NIRP is when a bank charges YOU for the right to keep your money there.
If you think this is conspiracy theory, consider that on February 5th 2019, the IMF published a report outlining how Central Banks could cut rates into DEEPLY negative territory.
We’re not talking negative 0.5%... we’re talking negative 3% or even 5%.
Many central banks reduced policy interest rates to zero during the global financial crisis to boost growth. Ten years later, interest rates remain low in most countries. While the global economy has been recovering, future downturns are inevitable. Severe recessions have historically required 3–6 percentage points cut in policy rates. If another crisis happens, few countries would have that kind of room for monetary policy to respond.
To get around this problem, a recent IMF staff study shows how central banks can set up a system that would make deeply negative interest rates a feasible option.
Any time the elites want to implement a new policy, the IMF is the “go-to” organization to introduce the idea.
It was the IMF that signed off on the disastrous Greek bail-out deals in 2010-2012.
It was also the IMF that “signed off” on the “bail-ins” in Cyprus, in which savings deposits lost as much as 50% in 2013.
Now the IMF is promoting the idea that Central Banks should cut rates into “deeply” negative territory during the next downturn.
A mere month later, the head of the NY Fed, the branch of the Fed that runs its market operations, stated that during the next downturn the Fed will likely have to introduce NEGATIVE interest rates in the US.
This is not coincidence. All of this was months in the making...
Indeed, we've uncovered a secret document outlining how the Fed plans to both seize and STEAL savings during the next crisis/ recession.
