Geopolitics

Recommended Posts

Inflation was subdued by the US consumer credit economy.

1% IR rates meant there was suddenly surplus cash to employ 1.3Billion Chinese people on $3 a day.

And thats just what happened 1.3 Billion Chinese people manufactured tat & crap for $3 a day. The increase in global economic capacity allowed the US to fund a 5 year war on terror through taxing imports to the hill and back, that's right, unable to tax Americans for fear of lossing votes they dropped the prime rate to 1% and taxed the Chinese, genius.

During this time the Dollar weakened from 1.4 to 1.9 against sterling thats about a third, and it's not like our press has been sat idle. This is due to a host of things, not least their overzelous presses and spiralling deficits.

However, they soon realised this was not the best solution to their short notice funding crisis as it quickly became apparant the Chinese knew exactly what to do with vast tides of capital. They built incredible infrastructure and invested in massive economic capacity for the future, the Yanks had unwittingly unleashed a sleeping dragon the size of which they had never anticipated.

Strategy was re-assesed and a new change of monetary policy was required to secure future energy without creating a bi-polar political landscape. Exit the formidable Alan Greenspan a now aging man deemed too old to see out the duration of such policy.

In his place was needed a man who could fund the securing of energy without causes a bi-polar world. Enter Ben Bernanke, perfectly fitting the bill as the Americans best expert on inflation.

Que the abolition of M3 data.

Bernanke needs to print swaths of dollars to pay for future treasury notes and to fund wars, he needs to this without destroying the value of the dollar. He has only one possible way to succeed he needs to continue to raise the prime rate to the absolute highest bearably sustainable level even if it means slight contractions in economic capacity. By the time the hyper inflationary limit of the dollar is breached and the press has out printed the prime rate the value of the dollar will lie in the resources that are it's reserve. The resource is oil and the flow of oil must be dependent on the value of the dollar.

Thus forcing Asian banks to hold large dollar reserves.

The American strategy appears to be thus;

1). Destabilise the middle East

2). Use military presence to enforce law and order accross the Middle East

3). Pay the military presence in US dollars

If the Asian banks sell off their dollar reserve the military pressence is withdrawn, the Middle East falls into anarchy and the flow of oil ceases, America retakes the Middle East by force and they get priority of supply.

Maybe Alan Greenspan did indeed know how to make a non-gold backed, pure paper money system work.

But its probably just a load of **** and bull, what do you think? It's hard to assess in the midst.

Shameless bump

Read between the lines people...

I am smashing my head on the wall with the lack of response to this one.

I mean geopoltics aside... can nobody see the actual economic parodies here?

Tip: Ignore all pronouns

What do you want to hear?

The Fed don't try and hide the boom/bust cycle behind their monetary policy. If the US are to maintain the empires status they have little choice but to seize the wealth of other nations under the banner of freedom and democracy. Subjugating the people with debt is another implement in the war on terror IMO.

Here is another one: Japan, miffed by losing WW2, dumps trillions of yen into the market to build up massive credit bubbles and to fuel the West's decade of spending based on cheap credit. Once the West (I inlclude the Miracle Economy here also) is sated, Japan begins to reign in the debt by slowly hiking IR to bring all that liquidity back under its control. Western economies start to buckle as Japan grown increasingly richer and seeks to control the Chinese also through financial constraints and takeovers of its vital businesses. What they couldn't do in 1941 they have pulled off in spectacular fashion in 2006....

OR, the world requires oil to keep its economies going. The mega oil companies controlled by the Brits, French and the Dutch (BP, Shell and Total) keep the Middle East in a position of instability to enusre oil is priced to maximize profit. The American oil companies (Exxon and Texaco) are party to the scheme and join in the conspiracy to maximize profits. This is fulfillment of the UK plot to control the oil producing countries that was undermined by one of our own, Lawrence, who united the Arabs in a way not thought possible. INstead of ignorant nomads the Arab nations started to sense national identity and were helped in this by subsequent UK involvment in drawing up geo-political entities such as Iraaq with British trained leadre (Sadam) to make sure the religious Fundamentalists were kept under control. The UK needed to keep Suez under control also but lost this due to poltical ineptitude by our former foreign secretary Tony Eden.

Or, the latest round is Putin's grasp of the gas supplies that were headed toward private ownership following Gorbachev's liberalisation policies. Russia, once in control of the world's gas supplies and significant qunatitities of oil, befriends his natural enemies (Muslim countries) to keep the European oil companies (BP, Shell and Total) from gaining political control of the Arab nations. Putin knows that the US oil companies have less at stake because of the hold-back on Alaskan and West Coast oil that is presently being stopped by environmentalist groups. Instability is maintained and prices kept high by supplying radical Muslim groups with weapons that will guarantee oil and gas prices remain high and dependency maintained. The UK and France meanwhile keep supplying arms to Israel and maintain Egypt as an ally as a voice of moderation in that part of the world. The US, in turn, supplies Israel with weapons to maintain its borders as a constant thorn in the flesh of Russia who would like to dominate the entire region and hold Europe and Asia to ransom due to their dependency on Arab oil. As Chinese demand grows the Russians will have dominance over oil and its ancient rival, China.
