All markets except Cryptos are manipulated:
Misconduct of Bankers:
The manipulation seen in Libor, Euribor, securitised mortgage-backed investments, metal warehousing, silver and gold, and virtually everything else of value, has paid off handsomely. HSBC’s nearly $700 billion of money laundering for terrorists and drug cartels was extremely profitable.
“The six largest banks in the United States — JPMorgan Chase, Bank of America, Citigroup, Wells Fargo, Goldman Sachs, and Morgan Stanley — have collectively become 37% larger since the 2007 recession which they themselves have fuelled, started. The U.S. banking system has $14.4 trillion in total assets. These six largest banks own 67% of those assets.”
The truth is these institutions are hardly banks anymore. Right now, four of the “too big to fail” banks each have total exposure to derivatives well over $60 trillion. Goldman Sachs’ exposure to derivatives is over 281 times more than their total assets. These banks own oil pipelines, power plants, metal and commodity warehouses and distribution networks, and ocean-based shipping companies. The list goes on, and it grows more disturbing by the day.
Even selling securities designed by those who know at the outset that they will fail and who hence bet against them, has been justified by these perpetrators. For higher profits, these “banks” use taxpayers’ money and people’s deposits – virtually interest-free tax-dollar loans. The only people who aren’t profiting from the use of this wealth and accumulated capital are the very people that inject anything of value into the system.
There are 6,885 other banks, the lowest level since the Great Depression. These small players are being ravaged by rules that squelch competition and reward risk. Banks with $10 billion or less in assets control under 20% of all bank assets, yet account for just under 60% of small business and personal loans. But the rules are stacked against them and in favour of the massive, global financial institutions that pretend to be banks as they push up leverage and risk in industrial companies and exotic derivatives.
The first financial lie of this century was:
“The Committee continues to believe that an accommodative stance of monetary policy, coupled with robust underlying growth in productivity, is providing important ongoing support to economic activity.” Said Greenspan in 2000.
Eighteen years later there is meagre or no result at all.
“One would think,” Ron Paul laments, “this (105 years FED) anniversary would elicit some sort of public recognition of the Fed’s growth from a quasi-agent of the Treasury Department intended to provide an elastic currency to a de facto independent institution that has taken complete control of the economy through its central monetary planning.”
“We are embarked on a unique experiment in monetary manipulation,” Jim Grant tells the German business weekly Finanz und Wirtschaft. “This kind of central banking might be more accurately called central planning.”
“If you ask economists, they will tell you that price controls are a very bad idea.” – “But that’s exactly what these mandarins at the Fed are doing,” says Jim Grant. That is, the Fed is manipulating the most important prices of all — interest rates. Only recently, the Fed declared that the fed funds rate would remain near zero “well past” the time the unemployment rate fell below their earlier set mark of 6.5%.
The result is a profound drag on progress. “Interest rates are so low that companies, albeit in a very bad way, can survive,” Grant says by way of example. “This reduces, as an unintended consequence, the dynamism of our economy. “In a dynamic society, entrepreneurs start things and other entrepreneurs finish them or bankers finish them for the entrepreneurs because the entrepreneurs have failed. Without failure, there really can’t be any true success. Otherwise, you have a futile system of permanent state-sponsored enterprises.” But it’s even worse than that: There’s the Fed’s absurd operations due to their pathological fear of deflation.
Central Banksters have changed the markets:
The Central Bankers have become a cartel with membership privileges to steal your wealth into the hands of their very rich friends. Quantitative easing has re-inflated the entire banking system. The Fed assets have ballooned from around $900 billion in 2008 to over $4 trillion in less than 5 years. The Federal Reserve manipulation of the dollar has undermined the lives of millions of people. It has driven down the standard of living for the average person in two key ways. First, the average household is earning less money in real terms at a time when prices are increasing. Second, it’s nearly impossible for people to protect the value of any extra cash they can save. The cash that is left in bank accounts will buy less next year than it does today.
In short, the Central Banksters have changed the markets. It has also changed how to invest. There are considerations today that would never have been imagined 20 years ago. It is no longer enough to study business cycles and company fundamentals. Investors have to consider the unintended consequences of quantitative easing; Contrary to its mandate of “stable prices” – assigned in 1978, actually the Central Banks have an official inflation target of 2%, while unofficially trying to achieve 4% inflation, according to Currency Wars author Jim Rickards.
Central bankers “never make a distinction between deflation and progress,” Grant says.
“In the last quarter of the 19th century, thanks to everything from the invention of the electric light bulb, to progress in the process of steelmaking, to the invention of the telephone, prices and costs have fallen for the better part of 30 years. Real wages went up, some people suffered, many didn’t, society progressed and people got richer. By persistently trying to raise price levels, the Fed is in effect resisting the progress of our time.”
“We are reaping the noxious effects of a century of loose monetary policy,” sums up Ron Paul, “as our economy remains mired in mediocrity and utterly dependent on a stream of easy money from the central bank.”
Paul is inclined to give the lawmakers of 1913 the benefit of the doubt. “Had legislators known then what we know now, we can only hope that they never would have established the Federal Reserve System.” Today, however, we do know better.” We know that the Federal Reserve continues to strengthen the collusion between banks and politicians.
We know that the Fed’s inflationary monetary policy continues to reap profits for Wall Street while impoverishing Main Street. And we know that the current monetary regime is teetering on a precipice.”
That’s the dreadful truth. So what can you on Main Street do? Tell your friends, and they in turn, should tell their friends how the world is being manipulated to the detriment of all the people. Wake Up Everyone, and make it known that we, the people don’t accept these lies and tricks anymore!
The Central Banks cannot really control the economy. They can only influence it. Fixing interest rates at any level, other than that which is derived by willing borrowers and lenders, they distort the price of credit – and the price of just about every other financial asset that is priced off interest rates.
Distortion of prices always leads to problems – either shortages or surpluses. By fixing rates at ultra-low levels, Central Banks are stealing from one group and giving it to another. The middle class, savers and working class lose wealth. Hedge fund managers, bankers, zombies – and of course, Central Bankers, gain.
That’s why the rich are getting richer while everyone else is losing ground. They call it a “stimulus” program. And they’re right: It’s very stimulating for those who get the money.
Then, there’s always gold. “When the world gets a full-on glance of the new Fed Chairman Yellen and understands the measure of the policies that central bankers will likely continue to implement,” Grant says, “the gold price will go up a lot against the Dollar.”
Always remember: The price of gold may well fall – even significantly. But the value of gold won’t change at all for gold investors who understand gold’s most valuable feature – its timeless and unchanging utility – a bear market in the nominal price is a wonderful gift. But for most part, it brings heartache and disbelief.

This is an informative and coherent documentary that exposes the hidden truth that you will never or very rarely get to see in the mainstream media. It has to do with the rule of secrecy behind the scenes of world politics, that has been steadily working on a covert plan to dominate the world and rule over us all without our consent.
