    UK House prices: News & Views

    Access to all the Alien technology and development of Teslas ideas on zero point energy are helping to avoid the expected crash The elite and the others who are working on these projects have been buying up property knowing that it can never totally crash and they more or less have a one way bet. The Alien libraries also have access to advanced economics that are way ahead of anything humans have come up with so far. Having a big price correction was just a way to enable the insiders to buy up more stuff.

    sub 20 silver is looking possible. Who now believes in the hyperinflationary holocaust that was supposed to happen with QE?

    People are terrified of deflation and the knucklehead germans want to tighten monetary policy.

    PIIGS / Europe's Debt Troubles

    I am just saying what the ECB is saying. They say they are taking money from some banks and recording it as term deposits and allowing other banks to get money in exchange for bonds. I might well be dreaming but for now i am going on what they are saying. Naturally since i own a house in the eurozone i am happy they have decided to maintain inflation and do things which might later be inflationary - where the alternative is a deflationary collapse of some sort. But i note house prices are rising in Germany which is not going to please you probably. Then again you might be moving to the states in a year when you buy there?

    PIIGS / Europe's Debt Troubles

    At the moment the ECB is saying it is taking term deposits at the ECB at the same rate it is issuing money to the banks for the bonds. So the actions are monetarily neutral. And money is so short in the euro area that the banks were borrowing dollars and then attempting to buy the existing amount of euros so driving up the euro against the dollar. Without these actions there would have been almost immediate and massive deflation because of the book losses or real losses the banks were getting. The problem comes later when inflation rises and the ECB cannot sell the bonds at the same price they were bought for

    If the service provider cared they would have a system in place that enabled the nightly back ups to get the work done while giving some priority to the few users who are on line during the eastern time small hours. They indicated they do not care in their response to Bubb

    HYPERINFLATION

    FRB is just a business practice that enables investors to receive interest on the money they give to the bank for the bank to use in its loan business. In theory it ought to be possible to explain to even the thickest of the various customer types what the bank is doing and therefore it ought to be possible to falsify the claim FRB is always fraud. Some people are however particularly thick and life is itself a compromise.

    This site is consistantly the worst site i am using. Generally i can arrive at the board ok and begin to post ok but if for example i make an edit then i hang and hang and hang. They might be using flood control. Generally it is around early working hours of the morning UK time but at other times also

    I am not a history buff but it appears fractional reserve banking was banned in europe because usury was heresy from 1311. The UK got its own Usury laws from at least 1545 that were only changed in 1811.

    PIIGS / Europe's Debt Troubles

    So France and Germany just issued a statement that they are confidant they will have a mechanism in place to protect the Eurozone in 2 months time? http://www.reuters.com/article/2011/08/07/us-crisis-germany-france-text-idUSTRE77621220110807 Edit: Now people are saying the ecb will be buying italian and spanish bonds

    HYPERINFLATION

    The fractional reserve banking system does not need laws to exist It has been around since humans began recording debits and credits. It is the nature of humans that they are like monkeys. They gravitate to leaders or are led. Take away government and you are as likely to get wars or warlords, tribalism, cannibalism and so forth - not much different to chimps. That is natural law. Or do you want to argue that humans are some kind of higher being?

    PIIGS / Europe's Debt Troubles

    So once again we are faced with the prospect of massive deflation. 100% guaranteed the overwhelming majority of the ECB will go down the bond buying route and to hell with the consequences. House prices to the moon here we come or bust!

    PIIGS / Europe's Debt Troubles

    You said that. I did not. We all rely on faith. Every time i climb a ladder i have faith i will be ok, but i am also methodical in my methods, but at the end of the day my life is something to be enjoyed rather than worried. A person who says they have no need for faith or belief seems to be in denial as i see things You seem to be wanting to tell me that you have a life philosophy that you describe as reality and which requires no faith or belief. Otherwise i have mistaken what you are saying - which is possible GNMA is the (United States) Government national mortgage association http://www.ginniemae.gov/

    The faithful and the true believers need neither faith or belief to know what is real. Given the nature of life they are often better off for that.

    PIIGS / Europe's Debt Troubles

    The Germans and the French helped to create this mess by allowing the addict to get more and more fixes. They have no moral high ground to stand on at all. Their poverty will just be part of the end result no matter what happens. How will the french banks be repaid hundreds of billions of Italian debt? The risk is there of the mother of all deflationary situations where the banks in fighting to save themselves call in every loan in existance and destroy every business in Europe. But currently the current monetary battle is supposed to be about inflation. Everything will look very different in a world deflationary recessionary disaster situation. Meanwhile all anybody can see is here is 100% certain inflation. I wish i had your faith

    Fitkid you are deluding yourself if you think i have not seen this video and others like it. I am not the ignorant fool you take me for. In my view Rothbard was a fool. He was totally reactionary towards the banking system and more or less blinded to the realities. Rothbard seemed as far as i can tell to have no comprehension of the nature of credit. Just as you do not. You and others like you are just fools together worshiping at the same shrines and fearing the same devils. However this does not mean i am against changes to the current system and that i slavishly support it and will defend it against all criticism. According to the Libertarians there should be less regulation. Liberatarians may as well be in the pay of the bankers for making such stupid statements. With better regulation will come poverty for most of us rather than riches. The idea there is something for the ordinary citizen to gain from the US government making major changes in the way the money supply is managed is just a foolish fantasy. And evidently there is no shortage of fools and fantasists. And as i already mentioned this does not mean i am against reforms and better regulation.

    UK House Prices - The Long, Long Wait

    I would have thought that if banks generally are reluctant to lend that the UK banks will, on balance, be amongst the lenders not lending, and who will have maturing loans returning to the UK. Therefore the fact that Gilts have risen in price is not so surprising. And presumably measures of UK total debt are also falling at the same time? Here in Finland 86% of government debt is held by foreigners for the worst ratio of the entire eurozone. Surprisingly enuf.. Only 20% of UK government debt is held by foreigners

    My main worry the last few days is that deflation was coming back again and as that worry built up it seemed more and more unlikely the ECB would carry on tightening policy. With the latest moves they say they are providing liquidity to the banks while removing term deposits so that bond purchases are sterilised. (Sterilisation would just mean they provide something and take something away) So I am not sure what this means. Supposedly this is not QE but QE also provides something and takes something away) But since the ECB has already indicated that if necessary they will lend directly to businesses and households to maintain inflation it is hard to be too concerned about deflation? But look at oil. Are we going to see 50 dollar oil again? It is really possible if recessions set in and governments are no longer able to spend like they did before. And if countries like Italy have to reduce spending then it adds another dimension to this For example so far in the UK they are still running a deficit.

    That should help the Italian banks. My point was that the panic has not exploded out of nowhere. It has been building for years bit by bit.

    The Denninger Solution - to the woes of the US

    I agree. If they went back to Indian rule the oil and debt crisis would be solved overnight. White people are always going to be part of the problem.
