How does our economic system work? Part I.

Het is alweer een tijdje geleden dat de economische crisis uitbrak, aan het begin ervan hebben we hier op visionair hier een boel artikelen geschreven over hoe ons economische systeem werkt. Terwijl de tijd verstrijkt is het duidelijk dat de crisis alleen maar erger aan het worden is. Inmiddels weten we dat de 300 rijkste mensen in de wereld meer bezitter dan de 3 miljard armsten. Dat 147 bedrijven de rijkdom van 40% van de gehele mensheid onder controle hebben. En dat die 147 bedrijven zelf maar al te vaak de belastingen ontduiken onder andere via belastingparadijs aan de polder, ons eigen Nederland.

Ondanks de crisis en een enorme achteruitgang van rijkdom bij de middenklasse in Nederland boekte de Quote 500 driemaal op rij de afgelopen jaren een stevige winst. Het aantal werklozen in Nederland is nog nooit zo hoog geweest in als in de gemeten historie van ons land en Nederland heeft de hoogste hypotheekschuld van heel Europa met inmiddels over de miljoen huishoudens die  een hypotheek hebben die onder water staat.

Wellicht dat er door deze ontwikkelingen van de afgelopen jaren dus een flinke groep mensen bij zijn gekomen die nu eigenlijk wel benieuwd zijn hoe onze economie nu precies werkt. Want dat het verschil tussen rijk en arm zo groot is en alleen maar toeneemt is niet een foutje of een ongelukkig en onverwacht symptoom van het huidige economische systeem, het is een onderdeel van de basisarchitectuur van het systeem. We gebruiken een economisch systeem wat de rijksten ter wereld in staat stelt geld af te romen van de grote groep die hiervoor betalen.

Om mensen in Nederland bekend te maken met hoe ons huidige economische systeem echt werkt een aantal artikelen hierover. We beginnen met deze duidelijke uitleg van de Nederlandse videoserie van www.transitiecultuur.nl over ons economische systeem. Vanaf 4 min. 25 sec. begint de systeemuitleg over ons economische systeem.

Als mensen vragen hebben stel ze dan vooral in de reacties.

Wake up call

Following our in-depth research on the global debt complex can we now confirm with mathematical and accounting certainty that there is no lack of information or solutions, in line with this we can ask ourselves what should be done with the factor 'interest'. To answer this question, we (1) outline the broader perspective, after which (2) interest is questioned by means of a simple exercise. As part of the ongoing investigation, we look forward to your reactions with particular interest.

Intro (broader perspective)

We now have a lot useful information and milestones mapped out what we can fall back on, in relation to the debt complex we now have three potential solutions (or derivatives thereof). In each case, global cooperation is a prerequisite for any success to be achieved and that is primarily a matter of human (political) decisiveness, awareness and a sense of responsibility. In other words, it does not lack solutions or information, it depends on one politics which serves or does not serve its people, a matter of ethics and human rights, just like evolutionary tendencies point towards greater global cooperation. The various options that can now be included in the decision-making process to be:

  1. Reverse logic (generation of money from existing money supply)
  2. Neutral capital injection (materialization debt)
  3. Accounting reset (purely technical intervention)

The latter option arises almost automatically from the in-depth investigation that provided us with more and more insights, this option is best adapted to the test of time. Seeing through some platitudes was crucial here, these act almost literally as a closed door to allow alternative visions into human thinking and act accordingly. This option also means that in the future no more physical money will be needed within the economic circuit, this is still visionary but not unreal when we consider social trends. Despite a lot of turbulence about wild speculation that seriously disrupt traditional markets, it provides global capitalism us at the same time a very efficient monetary system around it recovery  to usher in. A return to a distant past (cf. gold standard) is therefore not advisable, on the contrary.

Attention & self-reflection

The primary condition was 'receptivity', this is mainly a matter of focused attention and self-reflection. Without the willingness to do so, it quickly becomes apparent that a number of economic misconceptions remain dormant, as a result of which the integration process is stagnated, so that impasse and even regression can be established (cf. 'fixed in one's own logic'). When the willingness to self-inquiry is present, the opposite effect arises. What do we mean? Under the motto 'nothing new under the sun', focused attention has resulted in us finding numerous validating quotations and researches, this happened almost automatically as the research progressed. The investigation - which will run for a number of years - is now also confirmed by the IMF, we are happy to share it as a testimony Chicago Plan Revisited, here you will find much more information. This report is a bit more technical, but nonetheless very hopeful for our joint future.

Exploot

At the height of the Great Depression a number of leading US economists advanced a proposal for monetary reform that became known as the Chicago Plan. It envisaged the separation of the monetary and credit functions of the banking system, by requiring 100% reserve backing for deposits. Irving Fisher (1936) claims the following advantages for this plan: (1) Much better control of a major source of business cycle fluctuations, sudden increases and contractions of bank credit and of the supply of bank-created money. (2) Complete elimination of bank runs. (3) Dramatic reduction of the (net) public debt. (4) Dramatic reduction of private debt, as money creation no longer requires simultaneous debt creation. We study these claims by embedding a comprehensive and carefully calibrated model of the banking system in a DSGE model of the US economy. We find support for all four of Fisher's claims. Furthermore, output gains approach 10 percent, and steady state inflation can drop to zero without posing problems for the conduct of monetary policy.

Paradigms

Within this context we distinguish three different ones perception spheres, also here we will see how a paradigm shift expresses itself in a practical sense. Depending on the conceptual framework, the corresponding dialogue will be almost incomparable, in some cases even completely opposite, often causing chaos, confusion, misunderstanding and / or conflicts of opinion. In theory this makes sense, of course, speaking of a change in mentality without an actual change in thinking would mean that nothing changes and that as if we want to appear absolutely interesting but ultimately do not want to say or do anything. As part of our objective (sustainocracy), it is first and foremost crucial to think through all of this so that targeted awareness campaigns and transformational actions can be set up. It may go without saying that governments play a leading and decisive role in this, otherwise pressure groups could consider less social action.

What about interest?

Interest, interest or interest, is the compensation that someone receives for lending his or her money and that is paid by the person who borrows the money. The interest basically consists of three elements, the (1) inflation fee is intended to compensate the depreciation of the borrowed money, the (2) risk premium is an amount that serves to cover the risk that the borrower cannot repay the borrowed money ( debtor risk) and the (3) service of the loan is a payment for the rent of the money (cfr to rent). For the record, we remind you a little more Bernard Lietaer about interest, he stated that interest MUST cause people to go bankrupt because the amount of interest itself is not put into circulation.

Practical example

In practice there are various ways to pay off a loan, we find an example with a simple one search query on the Web. In the diagram below you will find 3 examples, each with a different amortization table. From left to right we see (1) fixed monthly amount, (2) no capital redemption and (3) fixed capital redemption, this is a matter of choice which is subjective in nature. In these examples, € 100 was borrowed at an interest rate of 10% and to be repaid over a period of 12 months.

In order to keep our exercise transparent, we assume that the risk premium is not part of the interest, the interest of 10% is therefore a combination of the inflation fee (IV) plus the service of the loan (DDL). The two extreme tables give us a mix of amounts, you can consider calculating this in detail. The middle block offers us the most transparent overview, in this we see the 10% beautifully reflected and the capital is only fully repaid at the end. We use this scheme throughout the rest of this analysis and link it to the reverse logic (option 1), for convenience we take 5% for each component of the interest (IV + DDL). In the tables below we make an analogous calculation and split the interest, on the left we see inflation and on the right deflation (negative inflation).

This presentation allows us to make a difference analysis, a number of details immediately strike us. Under these conditions we somehow need to find € 10 extra in the economic circuit in case of inflation, in case of deflation the amount is ultimately the same as the amount borrowed. By splitting the interest, it becomes clearer that the inflation fee (IV) and the capital (K) must be viewed bundled, wages and prices follow the same trend, so that (IV + K) is basically a relative zero operation. After all, this fee compensates for the lifetime, both in plus and minus. In this way we pay € 105 in case of inflation and € 95 in case of deflation, on top of that comes the service for loan (DDL) which is the same in both cases, being 5% or € 5. On the surface, there is not much difference, after all, the cost price for the loan is the same.

With deflation, we know that money is spontaneously released in the economic circuit, which means that the interest of 5% can be compensated and the cost price will eventually expire. Unlike inflation, this means a world of difference, almost literally. In other words, with inflation (cfr Bernard Lietaer) we have to look for extra money with all the side effects that come with it, with deflation such a search is not necessary. In the traditional sense, the bank will at least want to cover its costs, and on top of that it also wants to make a profit. If this target applies, it is more advantageous for the bank to make deflation as high as possible. After all, the higher the deflation (IV), the higher the service of the loan (DDL) can be without any cost for the customer himself. To contemplate this statement, you will find below two analogous schemes with modified values.

More than likely, a number of questions will now arise, which is precisely why receptivity, attention and the readiness for deeper self-reflection are of paramount importance. As this process begins, it also becomes clear that inflation and deflation are perfect tools to initiate (global) economic recovery, in line with whatever the study of the IMF wants to say to us.

Awareness (call for a sense of responsibility)

We can now ask ourselves what this seemingly simple exercise means for our society, this is mainly a matter of awareness. Finally, we can divide this argument into two questions;

  1. Do we learn from history?
  2. Is history repeating itself?

The why for these probing questions can easily be deduced when we consider our history, this is not about a few centuries ago or just before WWII. Regarding the Chicago Plan, we see that this information was ignored at the time, after which WWII broke out. If we want history to repeat itself then we don't have to do anything, if we learn from history then this deserves our unbridled attention, not least to protect us from another (global) catastrophe. It is not yet entirely clear whether the Chicago Plan will lead to a breakthrough, but that 'something' must be done may be clear after a few years of 'economic' debate. The question arises whether we are really aware of the need for this, there is no lack of information or solutions, we can state that with certainty. The correlate with WWII may be aptly mentioned, two quotations as testimony.

1934

This is a staggering thought. We are completely dependent on the commercial banks. Every dollar we have in circulation must be borrowed, both cash and credit. If the banks create artificial money in abundance, we will live in prosperity, otherwise it will be bitter poverty. We are absolutely without a permanent money system. When one sees through the whole picture, the tragic absurdity of our hopeless position is almost unbelievable, but still true. It is a very important topic that intelligent people should research and think about. In fact, it is so important that our current civilization can collapse unless it becomes widely known and understood, and we do something about it quickly. (Robert H Hemphill)

2013

According to top researcher Gerald Celente, the world is on its way to a new world war. We are in the middle of the greatest experiment of all time. Banks are forcing governments to put more money into the system in order to survive. But all this money created out of nowhere will ultimately lead to nothing. The world is currently in a depression. Celente compares the current situation to the depression of the 1930s, except that he notes that the current money supply is barely backed by gold. The current pattern is similar to that leading up to the second world war: crash - depression - currency war - trade war - world war. We are currently in our late 1930s.Gerald Celente)

What are we going to do now?

Letter to the Bank - the sequel

Some time ago, we drew attention here to a family that took on the banks.
Their website can be found at www.ont-moeting.eu

Two articles previously published about this on visionary can be found at:
-) Dutch family challenges banking system
-) Dutch family challenges banking system part II

They recently contacted again to tell their follow-up story. In this PDF they tell their whole story. I have chosen to offer their sent PDF via Scribt. By clicking on the link people can read the PDF in a larger format via the Scribt website.

>>And so they work ...<<

Their story shows that very strange games are being played and people who raise the issue are being deliberately lied to and cheated in all kinds of ways by the banks and related parties.

Keep in mind that the Netherlands currently has the highest mortgage debt in Europe and now has more than a million homes whose mortgage is under water, which means that the mortgage is greater than the value of the house at the moment. And then the crisis has not been tackled in any way by the government, in fact until now it has been decided to pump money from the people to the banks ...

Bilderberg conference 2013 from 6 to 9 June

Next week there will be the annual Bilderberg meeting again.
This year it will be held in Watford, England from June 6-9 at The Grove Hotel.

To start with, some basic information about the Bilderberg meetings of the Wikipedia and the central role of the Dutch royal family in this.

The Bilderberg Conferences are political gatherings of a private and strictly secret nature, in which international perception and ideas are central. Participants are influential figures from the Western world, mainly from business, politics, science, media and the financial world. The first Bilderberg Conference was organized in 1954 in response to the deteriorating relationship between the United States of America and Europe. Initiators included Pole Józef Retinger, Unilever CEO Paul Rijkens, Belgian ex-Prime Minister Paul van Zeeland and Prince Bernhard.

These political conferences were of a very secret nature. As a result, people of different ethnicities and views would be more likely to participate. Participation takes place only after a personal invitation. When Minister Joseph Luns tried to enter the conference completely unannounced twice without an invitation in the late 1950s, he was ordered to leave the building by order of Prince Bernhard and a Rockefeller scion.

The first conference was in Hotel De Bilderberg in Oosterbeek from 29 to 31 May 1954. Prince Bernhard chaired the conference. Prince Bernard remained chairman until 1976, when he was discredited in connection with the Lockheed affair. After that, Princess Beatrix took over the role of Prince Bernard. Today, the Belgian CEO Étienne Davignon is chairman. The organization has a head office in Leiden.

The journalists of We Are Change from Rotterdam have made a beautiful 20-minute mini documentary about the Bilderberg gatherings in which many Dutch politicians who have been there share their experiences.

They also take away some misunderstandings that may arise after seeing this video.

In the run-up to the coverage of the Bilderberg conference 2013 in Watford (UK), We Are Change Rotterdam lists some misconceptions that are actively upheld year after year by Dutch politicians.
These topics are discussed:

-) People do not go there in a personal capacity.
-) Participants do not pay the bill for participation and additional expenses themselves, which are paid by the taxpayers or association members.
-) Politicians are not transparent about what is discussed at these conferences.
-) Participants marginalize the power and strength of this network.
-) It is systematically denied that the basic reason for coming together has everything to do with forming an integrated global political and economic structure, usually called 'New World Order'.

What do people think here. Is a Bilderberg conference where the top of power secretly consults among themselves in a supposedly open and democratic world? And is it desirable that the old media have kept the meeting as silent as possible since 1954 instead of informing the public about it?

In the news media outlining its role as power-controlling authority takes seriously, at least a broad report of the Bilderberg conference will be made this year.

Tax evasion 101

Een korte animatie over hoe de belasting te ontduiken.

What are offshore tax havens, who uses them, and how do they work? Find out in our explainer, and get the full story at http://www.icij.org/offshore.

Key Findings van het icjj.

Government officials and their families and associates in Azerbaijan, Russia, Canada, Pakistan, the Philippines, Thailand, Mongolia and other countries have embraced the use of covert companies and bank accounts.

The mega-rich use complex offshore structures to own mansions, yachts, art masterpieces and other assets, gaining tax advantages and anonymity not available to average people.

Many of the world’s top’s banks – including UBS, Clariden and Deutsche Bank – have aggressively worked to provide their customers with secrecy-cloaked companies in the British Virgin Islands and other offshore hideaways.

A well-paid industry of accountants, middlemen and other operatives has helped offshore patrons shroud their identities and business interests, providing shelter in many cases to money laundering or other misconduct.

Ponzi schemers and other large-scale fraudsters routinely use offshore havens to pull off their shell games and move their ill-gotten gains.

 

Wat denken mensen hier ervan dat uit de meest recente lekken blijkt dat o.a. van de grootste banken die gered moesten worden met belastinggeld ondertussen zelf massaal de belasting ontduiken en andere bedrijven daar ook flink bij helpen?

ING and ABN Amro set up dozens of companies in island tax havens.

The Dutch banks ING and ABN Amro registered dozens of companies for their clients in offshore refuges with lovely beaches and low tax rates such as the British Virgin Islands, the Cook Islands and the Malaysian island of Labuan, an investigation by Dutch newspaper Trouw and the International Consortium of Investigative Journalists has found. Lees verder…

The rural bailout

PERSBERICHT – De Landelijke Bailout

Gratis geld voor alle Nederlanders

Op 23 februari start Ons Geld Foundation met haar eerste landelijke voorlichtingscampagne, genaamd ‘De Landelijke Bailout’. Door middel van deze ludieke voorlichtingscampagne wil de beweging de financiële ongeletterdheid onder de Nederlandse burgers aanpakken en aandacht vragen voor wat in haar optiek de oplossing is voor de financiële crisis.

Waar komt geld eigenlijk vandaan?

Veel mensen denken dat het maken van geld een taak is van de overheid. Dit geldt echter alleen voor chartaal geld (munten en bankbiljetten). Het merendeel van al het geld in de wereld wordt gecreëerd door banken wanneer zij leningen verstrekken (ongeveer 97%). Wanneer banken leningen verstrekken creëren zij vanuit het niets nieuwe tegoeden, die net als munt- en briefgeld bruikbaar zijn als wettelijk betaalmiddel. Over al dit geleende geld moet rente worden betaald en in veel gevallen zelfs rente op rente. Deze rente wordt echter niet in omloop gebracht. Hierdoor zijn er altijd meer schulden in omloop dan geld. De Ons Geld beweging is van mening dat hierin de daadwerkelijke oorzaak van de financiële crisis ligt en pleit dan ook voor een ander financieel systeem.

De Landelijke Bailout

Sinds het uitbreken van de financiële crisis in 2007 heeft de Nederlandse bankensector al meer dan 30 miljard aan bailouts ontvangen, betaald door de Nederlandse belastingbetaler. De Ons Geld beweging vindt dat het daarom de beurt is aan de Nederlandse belastingbetalers om een flink pak geld in hun handen gedrukt te krijgen. Op 23 februari beginnen zij met hun eerste landelijke voorlichtingscampagne genaamd ‘De Landelijke Bailouts’ waarin zij in verschillende steden verkleed als bankiers gratis bankbiljetten (flyers) gaan uitdelen. De eerste flyeractie zal plaatsvinden in Amsterdam, Rotterdam en Utrecht.

Over de Ons Geld beweging

Eind 2012 is Stichting Ons Geld opgericht. De stichting heeft als doel om het Nederlandse publiek, inclusief allen actief in de politiek, te informeren over de gevaren van de inrichting van ons huidige financiële stelsel en bekend te maken met hun voorstellen om het financiële systeem te hervormen. Meer informatie is te vinden op de website www.onsgeld.nu.

Us Money movement

The Ons Geld movement was founded at the end of 2012. This foundation is aimed at informing people in the Netherlands about the pitfalls of our current monetary system, they also want to actively approach politicians and hold them accountable for their policies and they propose various alternatives and solutions.

On onsgeld.nu the site can be found. And it seems with this that there is a Dutch initiative comparable to eg one Positive Money movement from the UK.

Target

The Ons Geld movement tries to bring about monetary reform in the Netherlands to improve the future of all Dutch people. This goal must be achieved by banning fractional reserve banking and introducing a complementary currency that is accepted as a tax. Here we become economically independent again through a financial system where money is made by the people, and not by private institutions. In the golden era, banks could also create money; so we are not going back to the same system back then.

Background

Since the start of the last credit crisis in 2007, you heard a lot in the media that money had 'evaporated'. You heard a lot about debt, bad loans and how we 'lived on credit' for too long. We didn't understand how money could just disappear and what it actually meant that 'banks no longer trusted each other' and why it would be bad that we would have 'negative growth' in the economy. We then slowly started to find out what money actually is and where it comes from.

Meanwhile, the central banks of America and Europe came up with billions of euros to replenish the money stocks of banks, we had to save some banks with a 'bailout' of our tax money and politicians told us that the crisis was almost over.

Much has been and is now being said and written about the crisis. Analyzes have been presented and people are angry that politicians do not see or will not recognize the real causes. We also waited for someone to do something about it. Until we were shaken up by the following video from Mike Maloney, a guru in investing in gold and silver:

It was after this video that we started looking for organizations to join in order to form an anti-bank lobby and to move politicians to real reforms. However, such bodies did not seem to exist, and then we decided to set up the front ourselves that could be joined.

For people who have also had problems with our current money system for a while, this may be a good channel to bring about reforms.

Joris Luyendijk: an anthropologist in 'The City'

Het is interessant om je af en toe vanuit een ander geheel ander perspectief te laten informeren over materie die iedereen raakt zoals de wereld van de banken. Bijvoorbeeld door een persoon als Joris Luyendijk. Hij is momenteel bezig met een antropologische studie naar bankiers.

Joris Luyendijk

De Nederlandse schrijver en journalist Joris Luyendijk is bij een deel van het Nederlandse publiek bekend geworden als presentator van het programma Zomergasten.  Hij presenteerde dit programma in 2006 en 2007. Ook heeft hij enkele books geschreven die goed zijn geweest voor verbetering van zijn naamsbekendheid. Luyendijk heeft politicologie, geschiedenis, Arabische en religieuze antropologie gestudeerd. Hij is afgestudeerd als antropoloog.

Antropologie is de wetenschap of de studie van de mens en het menselijk gedrag. Er wordt bestudeerd hoe mensen met elkaar samenleven. Dit kan overal ter wereld zijn. Culturele aspecten spelen hierbij een belangrijke rol. Ook andere elementen zoals taal, filosofie, politiek en religie zijn onderwerp van studie. Een holistische benadering staat centraal: er wordt geprobeerd alle facetten die van belang zijn erbij te betrekken.

Antropologische studie financiële wereld

Sinds september 2011 is Luyendijk als correspondent in front of The Guardian actief in de City of Londen. Dit is het financiële hart van Londen en speelt een belangrijke rol in de wereldeconomie.  Vanuit ‘The City’ doet hij verslag van zijn observaties en de gesprekken die hij heeft met mensen uit de financiële wereld. Zijn bevindingen zijn in Engels op deze weblog van The Guardian te vinden. Het wordt gepresenteerd als een antropologische studie naar bankiers. Deze antropologische benadering van de financiële wereld maakt het interessant om Luyendijk te volgen.

Recentelijk zijn er ook enkele publicaties met de waarnemingen van Luyendijk in de Nederlandstalige media verschenen. Vorige week is er een delivery  of the program Backlight uitgezonden waarin de bevindingen van Luyendijk centraal stonden en het ging over het brein van de bankier.  Eind vorig jaar verscheen er de column ‘Kommer en kwel‘ van zijn hand in de Vlaamse krant De Standaard. Op woensdag 9 januari heeft er een radiogesprek plaatsgevonden met Joris Luyendijk op de Vlaamse publieke radiozender Radio 1. In onderstaande video is dit radiogesprek te beluisteren.  

Deze publicaties zijn aanraders als je bent geïnteresseerd om vanuit een geheel ander perspectief te worden geïnformeerd over de financieel-economische sector en de rol die ze hebben gespeeld (en nog steeds spelen) in de economische crisis waarin we sinds 2008 zitten.

Lebbis on the Banks

Na mezelf redelijk verdiept te hebben in het bankwezen is het eigenlijk totaal bizar hoe dat systeem werkt. Maar wat misschien nog wel verbazingwekkender is, is dat er tot op de dag van vandaag nog steeds helemaal niets gedaan is om de ellende te stoppen. Sterker nog dankzij de crisis zijn er juist allemaal maatregelen doorgevoerd die de macht van het bankensysteem alleen maar verder versterkt en geconcentreerd hebben. En daarbij is de rekening van alle ellende systematisch bij de gewone mensen gelegd inplaats van de bankiers en ons huidige economische systeem aan te pakken.

Lebbis legt het in deze korte sketch prachtig uit.


Hij maakt daarbij ook nog eens heel duidelijk dat als wij zelf niet aan de bel blijven trekken en zelf actie gaan ondernemen de banken zichzelf echt niet gaan hervormen. Ook is het schandalig hoe de Nederlandse politiek keer op keer de kant van het internationale private bankenkartel heeft gekozen en nog steeds kiest, inplaats van het op te nemen voor haar eigen bevolking die ze zogenaamd claimt te vertegenwoordigen.
Waarom verdient de top van de grote banken in Nederland nog steeds vele malen de Balkenende norm terwijl nu duidelijk is dat ze inmiddels 1 miljoen mensen een te hoge hypotheek hebben aangesmeerd?

Want laten we de feiten gewoon eerlijk onder ogen zien, de politiek in Nederland is op dit gebied volslagen corrupt en loopt aan het lijntje van de financiële wereld. Dit wordt pijnlijk duidelijk uit hoe topmensen van grote partijen inmiddels hun salaris verdienen bij de financiële wereld die grof heeft verdient en nog steeds grof verdient aan deze oplichters praktijken. Hier wat voorbeelden en dit zijn stuk voor stuk prominenten geweest in hun politieke partij.

Gerrit Zalm (ex-VVD) verdient inmiddels jaarsalarissen van 750.000 Euro plus bonussen.
Jan Peter Balkenende (ex-CDA) verdient inmiddels 450.000 Euro per jaar.
Wouter Bos (ex-PvdA) verdient inmiddels 400.000 Euro per jaar.
En als je de raad van bestuur van de grote banken doorkijkt kom je daar ook nog wel wat andere oud politici tegen.

En ze verdienen dit bij bedrijven die of direct met Nederlands belastinggeld geholpen zijn of bij bedrijven die meermalen voor boekhoudfraude veroordeeld zijn of beter gezegd voor het “missen” van boekhoudfraude waar het hun taak was hier op toe te zien. (Details over deze bedrijven in De Boekhoudfraude).

Ons huidige economische model. Winsten privatiseren, schulden socialiseren. Socialisme voor de allerrijksten met belastinggeld en keihard kapitalisme voor de midden en onderklasse.

Kortom politici in Nederland, waar zijn jullie zo langzamerhand in vredesnaam mee bezig? Denken deze mensen echt dat het gewone volk niet ziet hoe zij continue de banken helpen om de mensen verder uit te melken om vervolgens dan zelf ook wat uit die ruif te graaien na hun politieke carrière?  De geloofwaardigheid van het Nederlandse bestuur is zo langzamerhand een totale grap aan het worden. Eentje waar nog maar heel weinig mensen om kunnen lachen…

Laat het later niet over ons gezegd worden, dat we niets hebben gedaan.

Who are the private international banking cartel?

It has been discussed here many times how our monetary system is a kind of centralized monopoly controlled by the private international banking elite. This is explained in detail in the PressTV documentary below. They make it clear how great the power of this cartel really is, mentioning the main names and families that make up this cartel.

A look at the International Banking Cartel led by the Bank for International Settlement (in Basel, Switzerland) known as the bank of central banks (58 central banks) and The US Federal reserve System. Also a look at banking tycoons: from the Rothschild family in Europe to JP Morgan and others in the US. How banks not only control governments but also appoint politicians through huge campaign donations. Governments at the service of the major banks, the best example: the Obama administration and the history's biggest bail out of the same institutions that caused the Great Recession.

A nice depiction of the private international banking cartel as a multi-headed monster. Here in a fight with US President Jackson who dismantled the central bank for the Fed.

Thanks to Ido for the docutip

The following family names are mentioned in the above documentary:

-) The Rothschilds,
-) The Rockefellers,
-) The Morgans,
-) The Windsors (English royal family),
-) The Savoys,
-) The Kuhn Loebs,
-) The Warburgs,
-) The Lehmans,
-) The Lazards,
-) The Israel Moses Seifs,
-) and finally The Goldman Sachs.

The above documentary takes a lot of information from the book: Big Oil & Their Bankers In The Persian Gulf: Four Horsemen, Eight Families & Their Global Intelligence, Narcotics & Terror Network written by Dean Henderson.

In that book, this story is explained in detail with a huge number of sources on which to prove the reliability of his story. Henderson says that this private banking cartel, in addition to controlling most of the money systems and thus the governments that use those money systems, also controls the trade in oil, weapons, the international drug trade, and secret services ... Maybe that explains why the military of the US to protect the opium plantations in Afghanistan and it could also include allegations that the CIA appears to be playing a leading role international drug trade to declare. And the banks play a useful role in it laundering that drug money.

The private international banking cartel is said to have control over most of the world's monetary systems (and thus governments) as well as the arms trade, oil trade and drug trade.

A nice piece of information to think deeply about and perhaps send an email. It is clear that Europe is currently also in the midst of a new kind of manipulation of these people. The Euro as the first step to centralize control over the monetary system of 17 countries and now those countries are being squeezed neatly by drowning them all further in a debt swamp. As a result of which more and more interest payments on these debts go to these private banks and governments continue to break down the social provisions in their countries.

Therefore, please also forward this information to your local council, provincial government and news agency. Perhaps there happened to be a person with a conscience and a backbone who can do something with this information.
