Global Economy
The following seem to suggest a difference in character between the Indian agitation and those in the civilized world:

NIRMALA SITHARAMAN

Quote:With karmic equanimity, we Indians endure man-made disasters and insults without a whisper. Even when they become unbearable to the collective psyche, being assured “yada yada dharmasya glanir bhavathi…”, we are certain that sometime, if not instantly, redemption is our due.



....

As props, if Indians printed imitation currency notes with face value of Rs 1,76,000 crore, those occupying Wall Street held up placards “No bulls, No bears, just pigs.” European protesters thought “Bankers are the Looters,” we, wearing the Gandhi topi, widened the list of villains to include the politicians, the realtors and the bureaucrats.



Savithri,

The OWS protestors seem to be ordinary western liberals who are are feeling disinherited by the sudden loss of their domestic prospects..

For example, look at the typical race-denial if not race-baiting engaged in:

Tea Party movement is a well organized movement and there are beneficiaries of that movement. OWS is just a spontaneous outburst of deprived population each seeing an enemy from his/her own narrow angle. It will distill in time if the economy deteriorates or even stagnates. If the economy improves this movement will dissipate.

Vatican demons are never too far behind anywhere where the oppressed are to be found. Lending "moral support", no doubt...

Anyway, according to one source, the spontaneous protests in Hong Kong are a sure sign that OWS is engineered.

Another call for the NWO, to be led by the global financial oligarchs! <img src='http://www.india-forum.com/forums/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/dry.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='<_<' />



The global economic crisis, engineered by the international financial elite, is purported to be deepened to such an extent that nations will readily accept [/size][/font][size="3"][Image: i-bow-to-thee.gif][/size][size="3"] a NWO (call it by whatever name you will, if you have fallen for the 'demonisation by association' western media psy-op, i.e. association with the term CT).



The economic crisis is the most extensive example of the Hegelian Dialectic ('problem-reaction-solution' paradigm). The last big one was 9/11.

The Bad Jobs Report Is Just A Very Small Taste Of The Nightmare That Is Coming

The Economic Collapse Blog



Another month, another bad jobs report. For the month of May, the U.S. economy only added 69,000 jobs and the unemployment rate rose to 8.2%. Many are calling this a total "disaster" and are worried that the U.S. economy could be headed back into another recession. Economists had been expecting 150,000 payroll jobs would be added, so the 69,000 number really shocked a lot of people. The truth is that the economy needs to add approximately 125,000 new jobs every single month just to keep the unemployment rate steady. So yes, this bad jobs report is not welcome news at all - especially for the Obama administration. When Barack Obama first took office the unemployment rate was sitting at 7.6 percent and now it is sitting at 8.2 percent. Some "recovery", eh? But the reality is that this jobs report was really not that "devastating" even though the stock market had its worst day of the year. Unemployment in America is still about at the same level as it was back at the beginning of 2012. The tough stretch that we are going through right now is only a very small taste of the economic nightmare that is on the horizon. If you think that things are a "disaster" right now, just wait until you see what is coming.



At the moment, 53 percent of all Americans with a bachelor's degree under the age of 25 are either unemployed or underemployed, and there are more than 100 million working age Americans that do not currently have jobs.



But this is only just the beginning.



During the next major economic downturn, the unemployment rate in the United States is going to soar well up into the double digits.



Many Americans will look back on 2010, 2011 and 2012 as "the good old days".



Right now, there are only small pockets of the country that are total economic hellholes.




For example, Yuma, Arizona has an unemployment rate of 26 percent, and El Centro, California has an unemployment rate of 26.2 percent.



In the future, those kinds of numbers are going to become the norm all over the nation.



Sadly, most Americans have no idea what is coming.



Today, I wanted to share with you all a couple of chilling economic forecasts that I have been made aware of recently.



The first is from Raoul Pal. According to Zero Hedge, Raoul Pal "previously co-managed the GLG Global Macro Fund in London for GLG Partners, one of the largest hedge fund groups in the world. Raoul came to GLG from Goldman Sachs where he co-managed the hedge fund sales business in Equities and Equity Derivatives in Europe... Raoul Pal retired from managing client money in 2004 at the age of 36 and now lives on the Valencian coast of Spain, from where he writes."



The following is from a Zero Hedge summary of a recent presentation by Raoul Pal....



We don’t know exactly what is to come, but we can all join the very few dots from where we are now, to the collapse of the first major bank…

With very limited room for government bailouts, we can very easily join the next dots from the first bank closure to the collapse of the whole European banking system, and then to the bankruptcy of the governments themselves.

There are almost no brakes in the system to stop this, and almost no one realises the seriousness of the situation.

The problem is not Government debt per se. The real problem is that the $70 trillion in G10 debt is the collateral for $700 trillion in derivatives…

Yes, that equates to 1200% of Global GDP and it rests on very, very weak foundations

From an EU crisis, we only have to join one dot for a UK crisis of equal magnitude.

And then do you think Japan and China would not be next?

And then do you think the US would survive unscathed?

That is the end of the fractional reserve banking system and of fiat money.

It is the big RESET.

It continues:



Bonds will be stuck at 1% in the US, Germany, UK and Japan (for this phase).

The whole bond market will be dead.

Short selling on bonds - banned

Short selling stocks – banned

CDS – banned

Short futures – banned

Put options – banned

All that is left is the Dollar and Gold

It only gets better. We use the term loosely:



We have around 6 months left of trading in Western markets to protect ourselves or make enough money to offset future losses.

Spend your time looking at the risks of custody, safekeeping, counterparty etc. Assume that no one and nothing is safe.

After that…we put on our tin helmets and hide until the new system emerges

So how soon does Raoul Pal think all of this is going to happen?....



From a timing perspective, I think 2012 and 2013 will usher in the end.



You can find his entire presentation entitled "The End Game" right here.



What Raoul Pal is saying lines up very well with what Steve Quayle's anonymous international banking source is telling him....



There is no stopping this...We are still on track as I have been predicting for a while now for a fall/winter collapse of the Eurozone and naked exposure of all derivative markets the world over. Europeans will go through a major reset, after time they will recover as Europeans do not carry the type of personal debt that Americans do. It is for America that I worry. Look for these signs next:



1- JPM will be bailed out again but it will not stop the coming market crash. More details will emerge about their derivative swap failure $150 billion and counting.



2-BOA (BAC Bank of America) will fold and be absorbed into JPM as a way to prop up the bleeding Giant. JPM will get the best picking of this deal just like they got with Bear Stearns.



3- Massive layoffs at Citigroup and Wells Fargo



4- Goldman Sachs finally pays the piper, look for massive cuts there as well as BIG Losses



5- Bond market bust which leads to freeze of all bond sales



6- Derivative bust the next one will be BOA followed by Citigroup



7- All CDS shorts and swaps will freeze.



8- Total Meltdown



You can read the rest of what that source is saying right here.




As I have been saying all along, there are two keys that you need to be watching right now....



#1 Europe



#2 Derivatives



Sadly, the articles that I write about Europe tend to get far less of a response than my other articles get. Most Americans simply do not understand that what is happening in Europe right now is going to significantly affect their daily lives.



And most Americans have very little understanding of derivatives. But as you just read, there are some in the financial community that are warning that we could see the derivatives bubble burst very soon.



Time is running out. This period of relative stability that we are currently experiencing will not last forever.



You better get ready.

While gold is a great guiding light there are definitely a lot of other factors that need to be taken into account, a wise trader will use inter-market data in conjunction with all of their other tools. So take the time to look at where Gold is and where it may be headed, and this will have an inverse impact on the value of the dollar.

Quote:Germany’s Bundesbank is to repatriate gold reserves held abroad to tighten control and combat currency crises in the future, pulling a chunk of its holdings from New York and all its bullion from Paris.

..

Many analysts say the world is moving towards a de facto gold standard again as China, Russia and other reserve powers boost their holdings to diversify out of dollars and euros.

Unlike Britain, Spain, Switzerland, Holland and others, Germany did not sell any of its gold when bullion was out of fashion. Nor did Italy. The two countries are now sitting on very substantial reserves that are starting to take on political significance

Must watch, there is enough truth in it which makes it worth it , though i think it is entirely not true, <img src='http://www.india-forum.com/forums/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/rolleyes.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Rolleyes' />/>
