Zero Hedge: “Think “helicopter money” is/will be confined only to Japan, which has been sending conflicting trial balloons about this unprecedented next step in monetary policy for the past two days (first Japan’s Senkei reported that the government will be adopting “helicopter money” followed by a government spokesman denying the report, then followed by a separate Bloomberg report about a 10T yen stimulus plan, the concluding with Abe advisor Koici Hamada saying that “boosting fiscal and monetary stimulus at the same time would be effective” in Japan)? Think again.

Speaking overnight in Australia, the Fed‘s Loretta Mester said helicopter money” could be considered to stimulate America’s economy if conventional monetary policy fails.”

ddrop

Opinion: That from the same Federal Reserve that says the economy is doing well enough to consider raising interest rates.

Time to review some definitions:

  • Inflation – a general increase in prices and fall in the purchasing value of money.
  • Deflation – a general decline in prices, often caused by a reduction in the supply of money or credit.
  • Hyperinflation – price increases are so out of control that the concept of inflation is meaningless.
  • Quantitative Easing (QE) – monetary policy/printing money that is  used by central banks to stimulate the economy when standard monetary policy has become ineffective.
  • Helicopter drop, also known as helicopter money, is a hypothetical tool of monetary policy that involves printing large sums of money and distributing it to the public in order to stimulate the economy.

Helicopter money was first coined by famed economist Milton Friedman in 1969, and repeated by former Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke in 2002 as a tool to fight deflation.

So three rounds of QE didn’t work, a decade of zero interest rates didn’t work, and negative interest rates are not working in Europe; instead of fixing the problem by making government spend only what it takes in, another scheme of giving away money is making the rounds.

It won’t work either. It will create an even bigger mountain of debt that cannot be paid back and make existing money worth much less.

At the risk of repeating myself, these schemes are setting the stage for an economic shock. I don’t mean to run out and sell assets because I really don’t think that when the big collapse comes we will be here.

Revelation 6:5-6 comes after Revelation 3:10, 4:1, 6:1-2, 6:3-4.

negativity

CNBC: “The yield on the 10-year benchmark German bund fell into negative territory for the first time ever on Tuesday morning, amid global growth concerns and jitters over the U.K.’s upcoming referendum on its European Union membership.

At around 8.30 a.m. London time, the yield hit zero and briefly fell into negative territory as investors continued to flock to safe-haven assets. Bond prices and yields move in opposite directions and a negative yield implies that investors are effectively paying the German government for the privilege of parking their cash.

A spokesperson for the German Federal Debt Agency spoke immediately after the milestone was reached, stating that the tradability of federal securities is “still very high.”

Opinion: The effects of Socialism/open immigration are killing the biggest economy in Europe.

List of nominal GDP for European countries (in billion USD)
2014 Rank Country 2010
1 Germany 3,418.371
2 United Kingdom 2,409.409
3 France 2,651.772
4 Italy 2,130.586

The 10 year bond is the benchmark used to gauge the health of the economy of a country:

10-Year Government Bond Yields
Country Yield 1 Day
Germany » -0.02% -4
United Kingdom » 1.15% -6
France 0.39% -1
Italy 1.49% +4

By contrast the US Treasury 10 year yield is 1.6% placing the economic health of the US just above Italy.

The causes of the 2007-9 economic recession were covered over by dishonest politicians and central bankers using money printing schemes that created a mountain of debt and a manufactured economic recovery.

In Revelation 6:5-6 John prophesied what looks like hyperinflation. John said it would take a day’s pay to feed a person that could be caused by the sudden collapse of one or more reserve currencies.

“So I looked, and behold, a black horse, and he who sat on it had a pair of scales in his hand.  And I heard a voice in the midst of the four living creatures saying, “A quart of wheat for a denarius, and three quarts of barley for a denarius; and do not harm the oil and the wine.” Rev 6:5-6

The stage is being set.

retribute

BIN: “Divine retribution struck Thursday nights as world powers gathered in Paris for talks that could end in attempts to pressure Israel to accept a Palestinian state.

The conference ended and a divine reaction was almost immediate as the Seine River rose 20 feet overnight. Parts of the Metro system shut down, as did major landmarks. The Louvre museum was also closed as staff worked desperately to move 250,000 priceless works of art to safety. The Orsay Museum also scrambled to save its collections. Four people died and 4 were injured in France in the worst flood the country had seen in 30 years.

More than 20,000 people have been evacuated in France since the weekend and 19,000 homes in and around Paris remain without electricity. The capital city remains under the second-highest alert, which warns of a “significant impact”. Experts say it will take at least ten days for the flooding to return to normal levels.”

Opinion: In Friday’s post “Paris Floods Peak During Peace Talks Push” we recounted the perfect storm of 1991 that damaged the Bush Kennebunkport home on the same day that George H. Bush took the podium at the Madrid Peace talks to negotiate dividing Jerusalem in another failed attempt at a two-state solution.

Today we take a look at the Gaza Expulsion plan:

The land for peace scheme devised by Ariel Sharon and George W. Bush gave Gaza’s 9,000 Jewish residents until August 15, 2005, to completely vacate all private homes and businesses. Hurricane Katrina, the deadliest in US history hit the US on August 23, 2005.

The following year, Prime Minister Sharon went into a coma and the Bush presidency suffered widespread criticism for his handling of Katrina and lost the majority in Congress in 2006. The Bush presidency never recovered, and neither did Sharon who remains in a vegetative state.

“For the day of the Lord upon all the nations is near; As you have done, it shall be done to you; Your reprisal shall return upon your own head.” Obadiah 1:15
