Banker Leonhard Fischer über selbstzerstörerischen Finanzkapitalismus - SPIEGEL ONLINE
Fischer: Die Globalisierung der Finanzmärkte besteht im Wesentlichen darin, dass die Amerikaner sich in ihrer eigenen Währung verschulden können und den Dollar so in die ganze Welt exportiert haben, um ihr riesiges Leistungsbilanzdefizit zu finanzieren. Ich habe als junger Banker bei J.P. Morgan selbst erlebt, wie die Investmentbanker in Scharen erst nach London flogen, dann nach Tokio und schließlich nach China, um Dollaranleihen für Schuldner aus den USA zu platzieren. Gleichzeitig investierten wir das Geld amerikanischer Fonds weltweit in Unternehmen und Immobilien. Ganz Amerika hat sich wie ein gigantischer Hedgefonds verhalten. So entstand die globale Finanzmarktmaschinerie, die in Wahrheit vor allem eine amerikanische ist.

Tax evaders exposed: why the super-rich are even richer than we thought | Inequality | The Guardian
The higher one moves up the wealth distribution, the higher the probability ​​of hiding​ assets [...] More broadly, the key to successfully fighting tax evasion is to change the incentives for the providers of wealth concealment services. Over the last few years, a number of banks have pleaded guilty in the US to criminal conspiracies to defraud the Internal Revenue Service – yet they were able to keep their banking licences, and the fines they had to pay paled in comparison to their profits. A more ambitious approach would put criminal organisations out of business. If tax evasion ceases to pay, it will disappear.

Here's Why All Pension Funds Are Doomed, Doomed, Doomed
Given that both The Economist and The Wall Street Journal have covered the impossibility of pension funds achieving their expected returns, this reality cannot be a surprise to anyone in a leadership role. [...] Here's problem #1 in a nutshell: the average public pension fund still expects to earn an average annual return of 7.69%, year after year, decade after decade.

This is roughly triple the nominal (not adjusted for inflation) yield on a 30-year Treasury bond (about 2.65%). The only way any fund manager can earn 7.7% or more in a low-yield environment is to make extremely high risk bets that consistently pay off. //&!

FLUCTUATIONS IN ECONOMIC ACTIVITY: ONLY ONE CAUSE
The financial crisis of 2006/7 turned into a recession prolonged by a failure to manage monetary demand efficiently to achieve target inflation. With the failure of Lehman Bros interbank markets froze and banks stopped commercial lending. Since then a mixture of quantitative easing and distortingly low interest rates has only managed to create the illusion of a boom as bubbles have developed in property and other asset prices.

velocity is at 57yr low - WOW! the money that is in circulation is in less hands! the econ expanded according to GDP, but less and less $ reach on avg each hand. - "This is serious. The velocity of money tracks how often each dollar is used to buy something in the economy. Falling velocity shows that consumers and business are pulling back… becoming more reluctant to spend and invest… downsizing… and holding onto dollars rather than spending them. This has a similar effect as reducing the supply of money bidding for goods and services. Prices drop. Deflation, in other words. The bubble has developed a leak.

Mossack Fonseca: The Nazi, CIA And Nevada Connections... And Why It's Now Rothschild's Turn
What the story is about is the nebulous world of offshore tax evasion and tax havens, which based on data from the World Bank, IMF, UN, and central banks, hide between $21 and $32 trillion, where registered incorporation agents and law firms in small Caribbean countries (and not so small US states) make the laundering of money and the "disappearance" of the super wealthy, into untracable numbers hidden behind shell companies, possible. [...] Why is Nevada important? Because recall that according to a recent investigation by Bloomberg, "The World’s Favorite New Tax Haven Is the United States" ... [...] Rothschild’s Penney wrote that the U.S. “is effectively the biggest tax haven in the world.”

German Banks Told To Start Hoarding Cash | Zero Hedge
In order to generate artificial economic growth, the ECB wants banks to make as many loans as possible, no matter how stupid or idiotic. They believe that economic growth is simply a function of loans. The more money that’s loaned out, the more the economy will grow. This is the sort of theory that works really well in an economic textbook. But it doesn’t work so well in a history textbook. Cheap money encourages risky behavior. It gives banks an incentive to give ‘no money down’ loans to homeless people with no employment history. It creates bubbles (like the housing bubble from 10 years ago), and ultimately, financial panics (like the banking crisis from 8 years ago). Banks are supposed to be conservative, responsible managers of other people’s money. When central bank policies penalize that practice, bad things tend to happen.

Beware the Minuses of Negative Interest Rates
Whether sub-zero interest rates actually work is open to debate, however. So says Richard Koo, the chief economist of the Nomura Research Institute. “In my view,” he writes, “the adoption of negative interest rates is an act of desperation born out of despair over the inability of quantitative easing and inflation targeting to produce the desired results.” The failure of the BOJ and the ECB to meet their inflation and growth goals is shared by the Federal Reserve and the Bank of England. None of these central banks understand that their textbook solutions don’t fit the real economy, Koo asserts.

Bargeld-Obergrenze: Cash kann man nicht überwachen (Lobo-Kolumne) - SPIEGEL ONLINE
[D]ie Abschaffung physischer Zahlungsmittel fantastische neue Überwachungsmöglichkeiten. [...] Die Bundesregierung möchte das Geld abschaffen, eigentlich zu spät, die meisten Leute haben ja schon heute kaum mehr welches. Gesprochen wird laut einem Bericht der "FAZ" natürlich zunächst nicht von der Abschaffung, sondern von einer Begrenzung der Barzahlung auf 5000 Euro. Aber es lohnt, den Kontext zu betrachten. In der SPD wird über die Abschaffung des 500-Euro-Scheins diskutiert. Im Januar in Davos erklärte John Cryan, der Chef der Deutschen Bank, es werde in zehn Jahren kein Bargeld mehr geben, es sei ja schrecklich ineffizient. [...] Dahinter verbirgt sich die Ideologie der Kontrolle, genauer: eine Ideologie der automatisierten Kontrolle des Menschen durch Technologie, deren nähere Betrachtung sich lohnt. //&!

Amid market turmoil and confusion, there are four key economic trends shaping society
The UK economy currently gets nowhere near its target of 2%. Inflation would decrease the value of current debts, making them less of a burden. In a world without much inflation, it is hard to get wages up. The worse case scenario is that debt costs increase, as prices and wages stagnate. [ ignoring debt and income growth - stagnation at their peril - youtu.be/KIaXVntqlUE - gov is no household budget, Steve Keen + Richard Koo ] [...] And in this age of austerity, these factors will work against governments seeking to reduce the welfare bill. Recent data shows that, in UK cities, growing numbers of low paid jobs have led to rising claims for welfare such as housing benefits, defeating the government’s aims to reduce spending.

the world’s grand experiment with debt has come to an end. And it’s now unraveling. [...] The next thing is to give money to Main Street.

Bank of England: Bitcoin is "Harder Money" than Gold Due to Deflation – Bitcoin Magazine
During a presentation on digital currencies entitled “Old Money, New Money,” Andy Haldane, Chief Economist & the Executive Director of Monetary Analysis and Statistics of the Bank of England and his team stated that “Digital currencies are ‘harder money’ than a gold standard” because “sustained adoption [of bitcoin] would see ongoing deflation.” [...] 2 million UK adults do not have bank accounts and 2.5 billion people in the world have no access to financial services, said Haldane. However, given the estimate that 80% of the world’s population will own a smartphone within 5 years, Haldane believes that many could turn toward digital currency to store their savings. // &! bit.ly/1U0UYMM - Enabling New Internet Applications (no transaction minimum, no transaction fee) // &!

Venture capital and the great big Silicon Valley asshole game | PandoDaily
(( via pando.com/2015/02/12/how-silicon-valleys-counterculture-went-corporate-and-ruined-everything/ )) --- This is a complex topic with no real “right” or “wrong.” You have to consider what the job of a VC is. It’s not to give inner city kids a helping hand; it’s not to make mom-and-pop dreams a reality; it’s not to help nice guys. It’s to maximize returns and fund companies that have an outsized chance of creating billion-dollar plus outcomes in a decade or less. There is a certain personality type that frequently builds these companies—a mix of outsized arrogance, steel-eyed determination, and even some element of delusion. Rational thinkers don’t usually think they can upend whole industries. People who get impacted by social pressure will be talked out of an idea long before it comes to fruition.

BBC News - ECB unveils massive QE boost for eurozone
The European Central Bank (ECB) says it will inject at least €1.1 trillion into the ailing eurozone economy. The ECB will buy bonds worth €60bn per month until the end of September 2016 and possibly longer, in what is known as quantitative easing (QE). The ECB has also said eurozone interest rates are being held at the record low of 0.05%, where they have been since September 2014. ECB president Mario Draghi said the programme would begin in March. The eurozone is flagging and the ECB is seeking ways to stimulate spending. Mr Draghi said the programme would be conducted "until we see a sustained adjustment in the path of inflation", which the ECB has pledged to maintain at close to 2%. + bit.ly/1GCvd40 &! bit.ly/1Ci5DgR &! bit.ly/1unR0lf &! bit.ly/1JnpsDm

Debatte um die US-Schuldenobergrenze: Schlüsse für Privatanleger - SPIEGEL ONLINE
"Vertrauen ist das Fundament der Rolle des US-Dollars als Weltleitwährung. Daher erlaubt das Top-Rating der USA auch ein höheres Schuldenniveau als das anderer Staaten", schreibt etwa die Rating-Agentur Fitch. An der höchsten Rating-Note drehe man nur im Falle eines echten Zahlungsausfalls, gab Moody's 2011 bekannt und hat diese Meinung bis heute nicht verändert. Und auch Standard & Poor's gibt sich lässig und lässt wissen, ein Tanz am Abgrund wie derzeit sei ja der Grund gewesen, warum man die USA vor zwei Jahren leicht herabgestuft hätte. Alle drei verweisen zudem auf das seit 2009 halbierte Defizit.

The Reason For China's Epic 1 Trillion Yuan Deleveraging: The Biggest Housing Bubble Ever | Zero Hedge
We shall see how much they approve when the massive deleveraging results in a 3% GDP print as we warned previously, crushing their year end bonuses in the process. [...] The country is about to undergo an unprecedented deleveraging that could amount to over CNY1 trillion in order to force reallocate capital in a more efficient basis. That's right: a massive deleveraging coming dead ahead in China just in time to shock the market still reeling from the threat of the Fed's tapering. [...] So there you have it: no matter what China has attempted, no matter how much it has punished the Shanghai Composite, it has been completely unable to offset the endogenous and/or exogenous (Fed, ECB, BOJ hot money) credit from sending the Chinese housing bubble into absolutely stratospheric levels.

Auch Robben ist aus seiner Leidenschaft heraus, eventuell auch noch aus verletztem Ehrgefühl, über sich hinausgewachsen im Finale der Champions League gegen Dortmund. Keiner wächst über sich hinaus, wenn es nur um eine Prämie geht. Das mag zehn Minuten reichen, mehr aber auch nicht. [...] Aber haben sie noch die Szene vom Finale in der Champions League vor Augen, als Hoeneß den Pokal nehmen sollte, sich aber minutenlang ziert? Da war eine große Scham zu sehen. Dann nimmt er ihn und hält ihn die ganze Zeit vor sein Gesicht. Das war für mich nicht die Inkarnation eines Abzockers. [...] Die guten Dinge des Lebens bestimmen die Selbstwahrnehmung, die schlechten werden oftmals verdrängt. Dass viel Geld hier größere Verführungen bedeutet, ist wohl eine Tatsache. [...] Die Angst, dieses Vermögen zu verlieren, spielt auch eine große Rolle. Wie dem auch immer sei.

Das Vertrauen, dass diese Systeme im Zweifelsfall auch halten werden, hat in der vergangenen Woche einen Knacks bekommen.

But what is worst, even if things get patched up - that the trust of the market, overseas investors have, how fiscally responsible the USA - especially with problems at hat - that trust and confidence would be severely damaged.
> Still, the Dollar is THE Reserve Currency of the World.

IMF's epic plan to conjure away debt and dethrone bankers - Telegraph
The Chicago Plan Revisited

http://www.imf.org/external/pubs/ft/wp/2012/wp12202.pdf

Benes and Kumhof argue that credit-cycle trauma - caused by private money creation - dates deep into history and lies at the root of debt jubilees in the ancient religions of Mesopotian and the Middle East.

[...]

The key of the Chicago Plan was to separate the "monetary and credit functions" of the banking system. "The quantity of money and the quantity of credit would become completely independent of each other."

[...] Private lenders would no longer be able to create new deposits "ex nihilo". New bank credit would have to be financed by retained earnings.

[...] The finding is startling. Simons and Fisher understated their claims. It is perhaps possible to confront the banking plutocracy head without endangering the economy.

Charting Europe's Broken Transmission Channels | ZeroHedge
Barclays provides a succinct flowchart of just where those transmission channels are broken. However, with SMP empirically a losing proposition for sovereign spreads, LTROs having had no impact on loans to non-financial corporates, and rate cuts not reaching the peripheral economies (and in fact signaling further divergence); it seems that short of full-scale LSAP (which JPM thinks will need to be a minimum EUR600bn to be in any way effective), whatever Draghi says will be a disappointment and perhaps that explains the weakness in European sovereigns this week as exuberance fades (or is the game to implicitly weaken the EUR to regain competitiveness).

The transmission policy channels of central bank largesse are failing... as giving free money to banks is not reaching the economy... (LTRO) ... and cutting rates didn't reach the areas it needed... (base rate cuts do not translate in rate cuts on the other side [real economy].

A weaker Euro? Be careful what you wish for.

Draghi: EZB will wieder Staatsanleihen kaufen und Euro retten - SPIEGEL ONLINE
- Draghi sounded very Fed like; speculation now that they might use SMP non-standard monetary policy tool again.
- also I personally got the impression they want to safe Euro and thus the banking system. But necessarily not Greece. Greece and other problematic sovereigns were not mentioned. If Greece were to exit - they could to another LTRO.
- also analysts speculate that ECB could do something with ESM together in the future.

- Everything else considered; ECB can not solve problems of sovereigns. Actions are only a sedative against the pain and these sedatives (non-standard measures) will be discounted by market over time now faster than the last time.

Money can't make you happy... if you are only spending it to impress others | Mail Online
Spending money on once in a lifetime experiences from luxury holidays to concert tickets won't make you happy, according to a surprise study.
But before you cancel that world cruise it's worth noting that you'll only fail to find contentment if your motive is to impress others.
'Why you buy is just as important as what you buy,' said assistant profressor Ryan Howell, from San Francisco State University, who led the study.
'When people buy life experiences to impress others, it wipes out the well-being they receive from the purchase. That extrinsic motivation appears to undermine how the experiential purchase meets their key psychological needs.'

Recovery – Who are We Kidding?
In our assessment, what we see unfolding is the latest chapter in the tug of war between inflationary and deflationary forces. During the “goldilocks” economy of the last decade, investors levered themselves up. Homeowners treated their homes as if they were ATMs; banks set up off-balance sheet Special Investment Vehicles (SIVs); governments engaging in arrangements to get cheap loans that may cost future generations dearly. Cumulatively, it was an amazing money generation process; yet, central banks remained on the sidelines, as inflation – according to the metrics focused on - appeared contained. Indeed, we have argued in the past that central banks lost control of the money creation process, as they could not keep up with the plethora of “financial innovation” that justified greater leverage. It was only a matter of time before the world no longer appeared quite so risk-free. Rational investors thus reduced their exposure: de-levered. ...

Can friendship survive the wealth divide? | Mail Online
‘In Britain, we don’t like to mention money,’ he says. ‘We are uneasy about discussing it with friends and our pride will mean we make excuses not to join in rather than admit we can’t afford to. But you can preserve your friendship, no matter how different your incomes. If you are the more affluent friend, be considerate of your less well-off friend’s feelings.
‘No one likes to be treated like a charity case, so even if you pay for dinner, let your friend contribute by buying the coffees or dessert.
‘If you have less money, rather than turning down invitations from wealthier friends, suggest doing cheaper things, such as going for a walk or visiting a museum rather than going out for dinner. Remember that your friendship is worth more than your pride.’
So perhaps it is time to call my rich friend and suggest a girl’s night in as a belated birthday celebration.
