InvestmentWatchBlog – EU Regulator To Banks: Don’t “Buy, Hold, Sell” Virtual Currencies – 6 July 2014

 InvestmentWatchWolf Richter wolfstreet.com, www.amazon.com/author/wolfrichter

The European Banking Authority has done it again. It wasn’t exactly ahead of the curve when, in September 2013, virtual currencies (VC) “emerged” on its “radar as one of the many innovations to monitor.” At the time, it marveled at the ability to transfer money peer-to-peer without an intermediary, such as a bank. But this being a “payment service,” it fell into its bailiwick, and so it “began assessing the phenomenon.” Three months after that propitious moment, it issued a public warning,

InvestmentWatchBlog – The Fed Has Failed (And Will Continue To Fail), Part 1 – 11 March 2014

InvestmentWatchBy Charles Hugh-Smith

The Fed’s policies have been an unqualified success for financiers and an abject failure for the bottom 99.5% who have to work for a living.

After five long years of politicos and the financial media glorifying the Federal Reserve’s policies as god-like in their power and efficacy, let’s take a quick look at the results of these vaunted policies: ZIRP (zero interest rates), (QE) quantitative easing, both of which are ways of shoving nearly limitless, nearly-free money ( a.k.a. liquidity) into the banking sector, where all this free money is supposed to filter into the global economy, working miracles of prosperity.

Let’s start with a chart of the Fed’s balance sheet, which reflects just how much money the Fed has created and pumped into the financial system. $4 trillion is larger than the entire GDP of Germany, and roughly 25% of U.S. GDP.

InvestmentWatchBlog – Dawn Of The Designer Babies! – 25 February 2014

InvestmentWatchA new technology aimed at eliminating genetic disease in newborns would combine the DNA of three people, instead of just two, to create a child, potentially redrawing ethical lines for designer babies.

The process works by replacing potentially variant DNA in the unfertilized eggs of a hopeful mother with disease-free genes from a donor. U.S. regulators today will begin weighing whether the procedure, used only in monkeys so far, is safe enough to be tested in humans.

Because the process would change only a small, specific part of genetic code, scientists say a baby would largely retain the physical characteristics of the parents. Still, DNA from all three — mother, father and donor — would remain with the child throughout a lifetime, opening questions about long-term effects for this generation, and potentially the next. Ethicists worry that allowing pre-birth gene manipulation may one day lead to build-to-order designer babies.

InvestmentWatchBlog – Banks Are Obsolete: The Entire Parasitic Sector Can Be Eliminated – 20 February 2014

InvestmentWatchBy Charles Hugh-SmithWhat else can we do with the $1.25 trillion we’ll save by eliminating these obsolete financial middleman parasites? A lot.Technology has leapfrogged the banking sector, rendering it as obsolete as buggy whips. So why are we devoting 9% of our economy to an obsolete parasite? Financial sector profits now total a staggering 4.5% of GDP (gross domestic product), while the expenses generated by financial churning account for another 4.5% of the economy.

InvestmentWatchBlog – 2014 – Resumption Of The Of The Global Systemic Crisis’ « Normal » Path – 18 February 2014

InvestmentWatchBy leap2020.eu

The avalanche of liquidity from the Fed’s quantitative easing in 2013, allowed the world before’s tenets to wake up: indebtedness, bubbles, globalization, financialization… But all it took was a slight slowing down in the astronomical amounts injected by the US central bank every month for the rampant crisis, buried under these piles of liquidity, to reassert itself. As anticipated, the method of “resolving” the crisis by accentuating the excesses that caused it is ineffective, causing a crisis squared instead. All the same one can find an actual benefit: time is gained which everyone uses to their best advantage.

InvestmentWatchBlog – The I.M.F. Needs A Reset – 11 February 2014

InvestmentWatchFor all the criticism that has been directed at it over the decades, the International Monetary Fund provides vital services to the world economy. In particular, it acts as the nearest thing to an international lender of last resort to countries experiencing external financial crises — and thereby helps to maintain international financial stability.

But the I.M.F. is experiencing a crisis of governance. The governments of big developing countries have become frustrated with the unwillingness of Western countries to adjust the distribution of power in the fund in line with their rising economic weight. Frustration has encouraged some to explore bypass institutions, such as the development bank and the currency-pooling scheme being negotiated among the BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China, South Africa).

Today the four big BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China) have a combined share of world gross domestic product of 24.5 percent, compared with the 13.4 percent share of the four big European economies (Germany, France, Britain, Italy); but the four BRICS countries have a combined share of votes of only 10.3 percent, compared with the four European nations’ share of 17.6 percent.
