Do you know the meaning for the central banking phrase “Helicopter Money“?
Many individuals falsely assume the phrase to mean free money for the citizens.
By now we all should know the elite globalists and the governments do not care about the citizens, so the phrase obviously is not about free money to the citizens.
The phrase is about the cozy relationship between governments and the bankers’ manipulated corporate markets.
“Helicopter Money” is the stimulus capital that reduce government borrowing cost, Bloomberg reports it also mean:
“Central banks also send back to their governments most of the interest received on assets purchased through quantitative-easing [QE] programs. Governments essentially are paying interest to themselves. Since the beginning of their quantitative-easing [QE] activities, the Federal Reserve has returned $596 billion to the U.S. Treasury and the Bank of England has given back $47 billion. This cozy relationship between central banks and their governments resembles “helicopter money,” the unconventional form of stimulus that some central banks may be considering as a way to spur economic growth.”
Another important QE element is the Federal Reserve’s version had the Central bank buying $Trillions of toxic debt (mortgage backed securities, “MBS”) market derivatives traded around the world’s markets. That band-aid helped to prop up the monetary system temporarily.
I think the phrase “Helicopter Money” is totally misleading and therefore inappropriate, which is likely why the deceiving investment officials use it.
If the government treasury and central banks in concert agreed to dispense national currency safely to citizens below the high class income bracket then Main Street and households would pay off their expenses and the real economy would see an immediate growth spurt.
A write off of debts on Main Street, student loans and home mortgages would also work very effectively.
Clearly, something important (other than concern for citizens) is being addressed.
This can’t be made any more blatantly clear after the central banks implemented Zero Interest Rates (ZIRP), and after that they “doubled-down” by implementing Negative Interest Rates (NIRP) for their owners and customers (the corporate board, and governments respectfully).
The citizens are left out in the cold with a higher tax obligation and threat of job loss.
If you have money and do not want the bank fees to take it away from you – surely the last place to put it would be in a bank.
There is a bank minimum required to keep an account open, and with the operating fees those with little money have only two reasons to keep a bank account, that is to pay bills and meet the corporate-government requirements for electronic funds payment transfer. Governments are refusing to dispense paychecks at work or mail checks, making a bank account mandatory for all workers (retired, disabled, or anyone receiving a government or corporate payment). Imagine when the cashless society is mandatory and the national currencies become digital currencies replacing all cash (making it illegal to possess Cash)!
The hopeful sign is that plan is very difficult because the drug trade requires cash, and so much cash is held by foreigners and foreign banks.
I have discussed many times that the monetary system “Reset” is very disruptive, and they may choose to stage a false flag (war) or international state of emergency to justify the authorized power, and crisis management policies implemented.
If you have a large sum of money and do not want the bank fees and the government taxes and inflation and currency devaluation to reduce that value – surely the last place to put it would be in a bank.
Middle and upper class income in today’s market should understand the maxim that wealth is never destroyed, it is transferred.
The greatest wealth transfer is underway as the wealthiest .01% of the population is accumulating all the wealth via the investment markets, the repossession on loan defaults and mortgage foreclosures, asset forfeiture on bankruptcies and legal suits.
Thus, if you do not have a broker’s license, you would be prudent to consider not investing in the manipulated exchange markets. Rather you would consider entrepreneurship (business owner), and/or community development (many options and innovative opportunities), or you could consider hands-on emergency insurance (vault with precious metals, and armed security).
– I Hope You Have Transferred Your Savings & Wealth Out Of Banks –
Now, I look at the statements above and think to myself that the worldwide banking cartel has a real problem with small businesses on Main Street and individual account holders (banks’ unsecured investors who will lose all their assets deposited in the banks when the next bank crisis happen).
National currencies are not flowing briskly through the banks. Banks are not lending cash (lower than previous lending levels) to small business (banks have become hedge funds/institutional investors).
Bank loans are traditionally the major source of Capital for Small Businesses and home ownership.
And that was part of a circular flow chart for community health for local jobs growth, for local housing growth, and for local bank profits.
All of that local community capital flow has been intentionally wrecked by policy makers when central banks stopped the flow of capital to Main Street, to shove it into Too Big To Fail Corporate Wall Street (Government Bonds, Exchange Markets and Development Funds).
This is an engineered crisis.
Main Street is literally being starved…
The Markets Will Crash When The Banksters Decide To Crash It
But, that doesn’t mean the citizens will not run to withdraw their money from the banks before the crash!
Gerald Celente from Trends Journal is on the News Media Circuit warning “World Crash Looms”.
And the internet is ablaze with discussions about Europe preparing for war against Russia.
Of course U.S., U.K., and NATO officials demonizing Russia and deploying military assets to the Russian territorial borders is not calming the military tensions.
Eastern Europe and Southern Europe are obviously in troubled waters.
is a torn nation after the violent 2014 military coup toppled the corrupt, but legally elected, government with covert aid from U.S. operatives (U.S. ambassador Geoffrey R. Pyatt and State Department’s Victoria Nuland, NGOs, Mercenaries, aka military contractors, and others).
Apparently the regional conflicts are flaring up again with heavy armor moving into the (Novorossiya or New Russia with the city Donetsk in the Donbass region?) bordering Russia amid internet reports of Kiev agents slaughtering innocent Russian-Ukrainian residents. It is said that the Kiev aggressors are armed Neo-Nazis with bloodthirsty attitude against civilian residents.
As the casualties and fatalities are Russian and independent Novorossiya sympathizers it is likely that Kiev is provoking the conflict, and that directly contradicts the western media reports and official statements from Kiev and U.S. governments.
– There Is No Economic Confidence In Ukraine –
Kiev, Ukraine received a generous rescue package from the IMF in 2015 (even as the IMF was refusing Greece’s request), apparently Kiev is not obligated to repay the funds, but rather the requirements could be interpreted to be reunite the secession regions known as Crimea and Novorossiya. If this is true then Kiev has many $Billions of reasons to start war on the Russian border (Novorossiya).
Bloomberg reported “only $6.6 billion has reached Kiev”…
“The current level of reserves is only sufficient to withstand small and short-term pressure on the hryvnia.” -Olena Bilan, Dragon’s chief economist said.
Is the United Kingdom at risk for bank runs, or a banking crisis?
Mass media news outlets are writing about their fear that a recession in Britain and the EU is possible, as anemic economic (fudged statistics?) growth turns negative indicating economic recession.
The Pound Sterling saw a dramatic fall against the Euro following the Bank of England’s decision on Thursday to cut interest rates to an historic low from 0.5% to 0.25%.
Although this was expected the central bank also decided to increase Quantitative Easing by another £60bn taking the total of QE now to £435bn.
Institutional investors’ confidence in the British economy has fallen since the announcement of the Brexit.
We expect more bad economic news for the U.K. and EU next week…
And I have not discussed other weak European economies:
Italy, Greece, Portugal, and Spain?
Maybe I will discuss the other economies in the near future, I am too sad from the bad policies that allow this devastation on men, women, and children worldwide.
This is not an accident, it is policy.
The U.S. Economy & Investment Markets
50% of all US pension fund assets are invested in stocks and only 20% in Treasuries. –zerohedge.com reported Aug 16, 2014
Baby Boomers are retiring, corporate earnings are stagnant, middle class income is disappearing, the poverty class is bulging, economic and investment data are not trustworthy, government officials are not trustworthy, Central Bank Ministers are not trustworthy…
Yes, the U.S. economy is bad and indications are warning us worse is to come.
Michael Snyder founder of TheEconomicCollapseBlog recently posted:
It is being projected that this will be the fifth quarter in a row when corporate earnings have declined, and even mainstream analysts are now admitting that it is “evident” that we have entered “a global slowdown”…
“Earnings season in the U.S. confirms the overall macro picture that we have. We have a global slowdown. It’s evident in all of the major economies,” said Peter Garnry, head of equity strategy at Saxo Bank, on a Bloomberg podcast.
– There is a Social Security Crisis –
Or so some officials are reporting, but is it true?
If Social Security has a problem, and I do not comprehend how it could -unless government redirected the funds. Because the problems relate to government investment confidentiality, where special bond investments are available only to special funds and only special legal entities are privy to.
I wonder how those obligations are fairing in this economic environment with lost trust, and where non-virtuous markets are using fraud and deception on investment statements, securities and other negotiable instruments.
That being said, I heard that government fiscal or budgetary needs tapped into Social Security funds, and there is no longer enough new contributors to pay those who already funded the system. [While this is very plausible, I have no evidence. This is hearsay. ~Ron]
Bluntly stated, Social Security is rapidly going broke.
Social Security began running deficits in 2010.
The problem appears to be growing worse as the economy also declines.
Is Social Security in a permanent and growing deficit spiral?
“Doug Bandow, a former special assistant to President Ronald Reagan, and a senior fellow at the Cato Institute, warns that seniors must plan for “Social Security’s coming crash.”
And in an alarming article, U.S. News & World Report argues that payouts will inevitably end, and says you must learn how to “prepare for the end of Social Security” now.
“We could see the end of Social Security as soon as 2016, and there is nothing President Obama, Congress or any other government agency can do to stop it.” -James Dale Davidson, economist
