When the big banking boys talk, you should listen. I’m not suggesting even the remote possibility of believing them however, as they are without a doubt, self promoting lies. But then one must agree that positive speculation, to some degree, does indeed make the world go round. Hope is found to be a positive push, even if an illusion… Yes, I have become a skeptic, and cynical too… Because the new 2014 World Bank projection is a composite of overt speculations, based on what many are calling bogus numbers… and we are expected to have faith, a blind faith that their magnanimity is going to give the world a warm feeling of trust… trust, in the midst of an unlimited spending ceiling surrounded by a pregnant bond-bubble ready to burst… A bubble, designed by them to explode with profit.
This week the World Bank has made some startling predictions for 2014, forecasting a 3.2 % global growth, 5.3 for developing countries, and 2.2 for high income countries. Yes, they say it outright, but one has to actually read this amazing publication to grasp the concept…
It seems almost laughable. Are they talking of our collective economies. or their actual profit margins? Sorry, I’d like to be more optimistic, but it has been evident for quite some time that the booms and busts are orchestrated by them… and so, is it possible that we could have a reprieve, a year perhaps, before our actual programmed disintegration? Oh, goodie… one more year of football.
Here are a few thoughts, lifted from their speculative tome. Thoughts on our American future, and our new place in the world. A new place at the back of the line…
1.) The US, Europe, and Japan’s economies will “pick up.” They know this, because they will attempt to orchestrate it… So one must ask… if they are suggesting that they can manipulate for positive profit, aren’t they capable of negative manipulation as well? And how can they do this when everything is in ciaos? It is called a PUT option.
2.) They warn us in the same breath that China and the US will be “tapering.” Tapering, in their banking terminology means tapering-off of buying bonds… They indicate that America and the 18 member “Euro Zone” is showing signs of recovery, and that together we dragged other world economies down by weak consumer demands and imports last year. Yes, it is our fault. They further suggest that this increased import demand should compensate for more US tapering measures, which could deliver a big blow to “emerging” markets… And then they tell us that these so-called developing markets are vulnerable to risk both from China and US tapering, with sensitive commodities… And what is considered an emerging market to the World Bank?
An emerging market is a nation with social or business activity in the process of rapid growth and industrialization. The economies of China (Excluding Hong Kong and Macau, as both are developed) and India, are considered to be the largest emerging market. According to The Economist, many people find the term outdated, but no new banker term is more descriptive.
On the Exchange, emerging market hedge fund capital reached a record new level in the first quarter of 2011 of $121 billion, with the eight largest emerging and developing economies by either nominal or inflation-adjusted GDP are the BRIC countries (Brazil, Russia, India and China), as well as MIKT (Mexico, Indonesia, South-Korea and Turkey).
3.) When the US began its tapering program in December of 2013, the bond-buying stimulus was reduced to $75 billion-per-month. It is a measure, they said, which helped stabilize financial markets after the 2008-2009 crisis… Stabilize? Is stabilization when The Federal Reserve brings us to a whopping 17 trillion in debt, with Progressives demanding another four? Is borrowing from the Fed, who prints money out of thin air to pay the interest on a debt too big to ever pay off, sustainable? Well, yes, if these projections are real. But what if that are not? Well, it would be the death of America. But what of the possibility of just cutting spending, as Ron Paul has suggested for thirty years? No, that is not in the plans, as you will see below…
4.) Scale-back will continue under the new Fed chair, and this could have a negative spillover effect in emerging markets.
5.) The World Bank’s forcast predicts that this strong growth will both “counter and normalize such market shocks”. Well, maybe that new tax-free haven in New York is what they see to propel a strong growth, new business. Possibly some new and lucrative insurance companies making fortunes under Obama-care, a new complex of government buildings with mirrored windows, or perhaps new Monsanto engineering laboratories… There will soon be a need for lead to, unless we can import it, as Obama has shut down our last lead mine as the 2013 year came to a close, just in time for Homeland securities purchase of, illegal by international law, hollow-point bullets.
6.) China’s economic growth dropped below 8 percent for the first time in 20 years, they say, and will continue on that trend. Their GDP is estimate to remain ‘flat’ at 7.7 percent, and to continue to decrease to 7.5 percent in 2015 and 2016 because they are shifting into a more “sustainable” consumption-base, and not an export-based economy, which gave them amazing growth in the 90s. They used the word, lackluster, to describe China’s economy. Wow, who are they trying to kid? China is busting at the seams, from bicycle to mopeds to Bentleys in one generation… America should be so lackluster.
7.) Russia is set to rise from 1.4 percent in 2013 to 2.5 percent this year, by their own estimates, but World Bank predicts a growth at 2.2 percent in 2014, 2.7 percent in 2015, and 3.0 percent in 2016. I’m sure Mr. Putin is laughing to tears, and all the way to the bank too, as the mafia, who actually runs the country, cooks their books. And do you think RT media publishes the truth about our Progressive government out of the goodness of their Communistic hearts? As Putin tells Israel to tear down their walls, while protecting their interests in Iran? Is that payback or Karma? And Afghanistan is another Vietnam for us, as we supplied Osama Ben Laden arms and CIA training to kill their boys, those same tools of war are used on our own. Oh, you thought they forgot about that?
8.) BRICS countries were cut with Brazil’s growth forecast down to 2.4 percent from 4 percent… Mexico is also said to take a hit from 3.9 to 3.4 percent, and India’s 6.5 percent to 6.3 percent… But they magnanimously predicted that this slower growth is “not a cause for concern”. Oh no, no concern at all… everyone just has faith that they can make it all right again… But what power to have the ability to finance both destruction and reconstruction, the divergent sides to war. So powerful they can, inadvertently by corporate lobbying, control enough of our US Congress to own the American mindset, lock, stop and if they have their way… barrel… Even the gold in Fort Knox now belongs to them, and no audit can ever be approved, for fifty years. And as we blindly and trustingly go deeper and deeper in debt, we are not allowed to even see what we are paying for… and the payment becomes far more than worthless paper money, but insures our future as debt slaves….
Now there will indeed be cuts and modifications to this report as the year wears on , and further analysis might change their future speculations by slight of hand, forward looking projections for 2014 that will push and pull both the market and the pulse of what is left of a world-wide free enterprise system…
To view the total prediction for yourself, read their first 2014 bi-annual publication here… ‘Global Economic Prospects’.
No doubt, The World Bank’s yearly projections is a manipulative propaganda tool. Calling the Chinese economy “lackluster”, and not mentioning the US’s inability to curtail its own tailspin, the production of jobs, is pure hype. China is the second-largest economy in the world with a 7.7 growth, while the US dropped from 2.8 percent in 2012 to 1.6 percent in 2013, just saying. So who is indeed having a lackluster performance?
But these projections have held some weight in the past, even if the contradictions are glaring. Seems they are expecting that a kind word of hope can work like a band aid, like a dash of sugar to sweeten a drivilling lie… And only an educated populous with gumption can put off what otherwise seems inevitable, the final destruction of America, the last bastion before complete world dominion.
The bond market is super-saturated, along with the social-engineering of Obama Care and a cultural war about to come to a head… Now that might seem a good reason to taper off of spending… But we must ask ourselves, who would actually benefit the most from a bursting bond bubble? As the US declines into hyper inflation, solvency will be meaningless to everyone, except for them. The creation of this bond bubble could be the last straw for our US economy, and the US would be forced to default. Oh, can’t happen? Happened to the USSR. We are broke, sir, and can not pay even the interest on what we owe without prnting more out of thin air. If we crashed, it would be carpet-bagging on a grand scale, as they would buy our assets for pennies on the dollar….They would have no need to point a gun at us, a simple keyboard click would be enough, and all would be transferred to them.
Uprise? Like our brothers and sisters in Iceland? Sorry, we no longer have due process here, the Patriot Act and the NDAA will see to martial law, and all those who resist will have a new FEMA residence, or be buried in the millions of hard plastic coffins ten at a time, shot by Homeland Security zombies, paid international solders-of-fortune like Black-water, and if there isn’t enough hollow points to go around, UN troops. And what will Russia, China, India, Pakistan, Iran, and others do if we fall, and can’t take our country back from this Progressive scourge? They will declare war. And the New Apocalypse will begin, just as the Zionist/Evangelicals helped to orchestrate since the Balfour, with the hope that divine intervention will be humanities salvation, all along. And if His time has not come, surely all will not be lost. There will be profits to make, built on the rubble of our American Dreams.
What prompted this essay was a three hour conversation with a very smart and savvy friend as I continually pressed him for ideas on how to protect myself and my family from this apparent inevitability, and he said. “If the people don’t wake up, there is nothing else to do. Your paper money will be worthless, along with all of your assets, and your suggested hedge… your buying of gold and silver? Who will buy it then? In the middle of martial law, you will kill or be killed, and only the strong will survive. I know you Ken, you will try to help your neighbor, but there are some who will not wait for you to give; they will try to take it if they can, and most likely this violent culmination will transpire just three days after the lights go out. If you could survive six months, most likely you will be one of the few that remain to rebuild. But it will be a new world, a world in the grip of an all seeing eye, the eye of Big Brother. You will know the New World Order has begun when they solicit you to a work party to bury the dead… but to be honest Ken, I don’t think you will make it that far. And don’t take it personally, few will have what it takes to survive.”
