World Finance year of the outgoing and the coming year

23



Speaking of the world of finance 2017 year, I break the tradition and will not begin to list the main events that have occurred over the past twelve months. I will name only the event that was expected, but which did not happen. I mean the second wave of the global financial crisis.

The last global financial crisis began ten years ago. Its epicenter was the United States, where for several years there was a bubble in the mortgage market. In the summer of 2007, the first bankruptcies began in the mortgage market and the US mortgage market. In 2008, the crisis spread to other segments of the financial sector of the American economy. The symbol and apogee of the crisis was the bankruptcy in September of 2008 of the gigantic bank Lehman Brothers. At the same time, the crisis began to go beyond the borders of the United States and became global. In 2008, the US stock market indices fell by 40%, in Europe - by 50%. In 2009, the fall in world GDP was recorded - the first since the end of World War II. Some signs of a world economy and international finance coming out of the crisis only became apparent at the end of 2009. In 2010, the global crisis moved into a phase of protracted depression, which continues to the present.

To overcome the depression, the authorities of the United States and a number of other Western countries used a new tool called “quantitative easing” (CS). Behind this lies the banal inclusion of the printing press of the Federal Reserve System of the USA and the central banks of other countries (European Central Bank, Bank of England, Bank of Japan, etc.). The COP, however, was not a medicine, but an anesthetic, and one that only aggravated the disease.

A clear sign of an exacerbation of the disease was that in the 2017 year, it was estimated that the debt indicators of the economies of the leading countries of the world surpassed the 2007 figures of the year. The total amount of debt (including debt of the public sector, the sector of banks and financial organizations, non-financial companies and the household sector) in the United States, the European Union and China exceeded 300% of GDP. The relative levels of debt in these three centers are about the same, experts say that the America, the EU, and China can become the epicenter of the second wave of the global crisis.

From my point of view, China today has even more chances to become such an epicenter. In China, a great development of shadow banking has been obtained. Taking into account the debts resulting from its activities, the relative level of the aggregate debt of the Chinese economy is at least twice as high as the official figure (that is, it exceeds 600% of GDP).

The flip side of astronomical debt are giant bubbles inflated in financial and real estate markets. In the stock market today, all records are breaking the indices of companies belonging to the so-called digital economy. The digital economy itself is a giant bubble. Why, however, did not the bubbles burst, as expected, in 2017? I think it’s because the scale of the monetary issue of the Fed and the central banks of other countries today is incomparably greater than on the eve of the 2007-2009 crisis. Thanks to the increased power of the printing presses, it is now possible to build a higher debt pyramid than the one that was created a decade ago. Well, the consequences of the collapse of the new debt pyramid will be immeasurably more serious. Any panic sown by the media is able to shake and derail the unstable structure.

Actually, to the question of what to expect in 2018, I already answered: we must still wait for the second world wave of the global financial crisis. Considering that a higher debt pyramid was built today than ten years ago, there is some possibility that the next year will be able to slip through and the crisis will be postponed until the 2019 year. Intuition suggests that the probability of a crisis beginning in 2018 can be estimated in 80%, and in 2019 in the year - in 20%.

If in the outgoing year the topic of the second wave of the global financial crisis was in the shadow of the world media, the topic of cryptocurrency received a disproportionately large promotion. At the same time, the mass of cryptocurrency was scanty. At the beginning of 2016, the capitalization of the main cryptocurrencies in the world was estimated at 6 billion dollars, at the beginning of 2017, about 16 billion dollars. And the amount of cash in the world in the middle of the current decade was estimated at 4,5 trillion. dollars, cash and non-cash money supply - in 55 trillion. Doll.

Everyone is hypnotizing the dynamics of market quotes cryptocurrency. Take, for example, bitcoin, which is the most popular cryptocurrency. When bitcoin was born in 2009, its price was less than one US cent. By the beginning of 2017, the bitcoin broke the 1000 dollars bar. In December, 2017 was the moment when bitcoin reached out to 20 thousand dollars. No other financial instruments showed such mad dynamics. The total capitalization of the main cryptocurrencies in the world in mid-December reached 500 billion dollars, and at the time I write this article (December 28), the figure was equal to 650 billion dollars. That is, 40-fold increase compared to the beginning of 2017 of the year.

I have a strong feeling that throughout the year the media artificially stirred up a stir in the cryptocurrency market. Custom character of most publications on this topic is striking.

A small part of the publications focused on the fact that, they say, new money will radically change the world for the better. Say, people are tired of bankers who profit from millions of citizens, and business is tired of annoying control by creditors. It was suggested that cryptocurrency is freedom, including from banking dictate. Cryptocurrencies are private digital money that is created and circulated in electronic peer-to-peer networks, assuming that all participants in the relationship are on the same level and have equal rights and act. No vertical of power, no Big Brother (say, in the person of the central bank or the tax service). Cryptocurrencies involve self-checking based on the use of blockchain technologies (distributed transaction registries). Each transaction participant can check the entire chain of transactions, no dirty tricks and deceptions. It is no longer necessary to say that every person can create money himself (mining). And in the same spirit: “cryptocurrencies are the bright digital future of humanity”. I have already written about the falsity of these digital utopias: this is an information cover for the project of building an electronic banking concentration camp. Private digital currencies are only pilot projects.

And the majority of publications on cryptocurrencies simply call on citizens for rapid enrichment. Whereas previously, the issuing income was received by central banks, now everyone can receive such income, all they need is to acquire the appropriate computer and software. If you are too lazy to engage in mining, you can simply invest in cryptocurrency. We have already shown the first billionaires who have acquired this honorary title due to the fact that they were engaged in the timely purchase of cryptocurrencies. Not too late today. Cryptocurrency quotes are growing every week. Doubters are promised that bitcoin at the end of this decade will cost 500 thousands and even one million US dollars. Such lures work flawlessly. The number of people involved in mining and investing in currencies is growing at about the same pace as cryptocurrency quotes. This can be judged by the number of e-wallets created for storing and accumulating cryptocurrencies. According to experts, in the last months of the year, every day in the world 30-40 thousands of electronic wallets were opened on average, and their total number is measured in tens of millions.

It can be concluded that in the 2017 year, in connection with cryptocurrencies, a global mental epidemic (or mass rage) began. It’s hard to say when it will end, but bitcoin quotes will not exactly reach the one million bar or even 500 thousand dollars. We are witnessing the construction of another debt pyramid, which by definition should collapse. Most likely, this will happen in 2018 year. With some probability, the collapse may be delayed and transferred to the 2019 year.

And about one event that last year passed almost unnoticed, but which, it seems to me, will soon be remembered. We are talking about digital currency, which is developing a consortium of ten largest private banks. There were several short messages that work on this digital currency, which received the conditional name utility settlement coin (USC), is already being completed. Next year, it should be coordinated with the central banks of those countries whose banks participate in the consortium. These ten banks are: UBS, BNY Mellon, Deutsche Bank, Santander, Barclays, CIBC, Credit Suisse, HSBC, MUFG and State Street. They will have to coordinate the new digital currency in the US Federal Reserve, the European Central Bank, the National Bank of Switzerland, the Bank of England, the Bank of Japan, and the Bank of Canada. These are the same central banks, about which I have often written as participants in a central bank cartel (Central Bank-6), working on a gradual transition of the global financial system to a single supranational currency. I think that USC is the prototype of a future supranational currency.

If we see this world, then many today's Bitcoin-type cryptocurrencies will evaporate in it, like the morning mist. However, then the familiar currencies like the US dollar, the euro, the pound sterling, etc. can evaporate. This is the plan of the money owners.

    The credit financial system is the main "printing press" of "air money" ... A shaft of unsecured money that cannot be stopped was warned even at a time when tricky ghouls-financiers "untied" money from the "gold" filling, which they said , became a brake on the saturation of markets with "cheap" money and, therefore, a "brake" on the development of the global economy ...

      For more than a century they have been talking about the final decay of the West, tomorrow's collapse of the Dollar, and an early victory. And even the dash knows how much they will be, always the topic collects a good audience and provides a sea of ​​space for hanging noodles

        Do you think that everything is good and carefree in the West?
        The number of impoverished, living in a debt hole, people working for a salary that does not cover the cost of living is 95% of the population.
        How do you imagine the death of a cap system? Big black hole? And the exact date of its appearance? Super volcano explosion?

        The death of capitalism is inherent in the principle of the economic system.
        This death is delayed in various ways. And these are world wars and the creation of national fascism.

          Of course, of course, and what is your date of the capitalist end? drinks All their lives they shout that here is that the bourgeoisie have been dying of hunger and other nonsense for a long time
          Move to the DPRK, Cuba, Venezuela, countries that put an iron boot on the neck of the world bourgeoisie! And you live in a country sitting under the yoke of the main bourgeois, and in everything he is holding on to. Torment there with hunger, live in the trash! Go to the great prosperous countries! Escape from the collapse of a decaying Canada! Until it's not too late!

            I read your comments ... the impression was made that the Jews were the smartest again, they certainly knew something, which the rest were not given to understand. If the first part is without much criticism, the second involves a fair amount of discussion (even Marx talked about this), then the third, namely the salvation of the existing system by searching for enemies, organizing wars and cataclysms, is the "standard" practice of capitalism ... Therefore, well - yes. well yes. " this is not an argument.

    Alarmed by the "dances" with the idea of ​​cryptocurrency of officials of the Russian Federation. ... I remember Garant broadcast a lot in 2007 about the "crisis-free harbor" in Russia, criticized the dubious financial instruments of international exchanges. Why is it now necessary to finish off the miserable remnants of the financial sovereignty of the Russian Federation?
    The feeling that Russia is preparing for a gloomy scenario. On the one hand, thousands of real profitable enterprises protected by PMCs and the Russian Guard, prudently acquired for trillions of “bitcoins”. On the other hand, the owners of bitcoins in the position of the Americans in 1928.

        You are right, the process of creating USA-2 has been underway since 1917. It remains to "recycle" the relic passionaries in the Donbass, the rest to drink or cross into the "generation of Sneakers." The authorities of the Russian Federation seem to be in the know. Demonstrate a pathological detachment from the problems of "experimental rabbits."

    I thought that cryptocurrency, or rather, its exponential quotes, wants to suck out part of the dollar mass. Vparit suckers "digital money" and reset debts in dollars. Moreover, Bitcoin is a CIA project, there are the most first-class cryptographers, programmers and other IT specialists, the names of the professions of which I do not know. Judging by the aggressive and military rhetoric of politicians, the financial crisis is already somewhere in the stage of the famous polar beast.

      That's right. Bitcoin is the vacuum cleaner that sucks out extra money, which for obvious reasons is simply nowhere to invest. Because this money does not have a material basis. It turns out zero multiplied by zero.
      This is a financial regulator that is designed to destroy speculative profit.

      Eco it’s like that.
      What is your evidence?
      And what then (as an example) --- Etherium? And read the reaction of GDP to it.
      By the way, ask how many cryptocurrencies do exist.

        Today I’m yours ... Maybe I'm too suspicious, but what are the miners of bitcoin mining? A decade ago, scientists wanted to create a distributed system to search for alien signals in order to use the resources of private computers, since not a single state owned sufficiently powerful supercomputers. But private traders somehow were not particularly eager to spend their money on all kinds of crap. And now, for the sake of getting mythical cue ball ... people make a lot of money, create gigantic computing power and make calculations to understand what. Moreover, to create such computing power, any state would simply not have enough money (budgets are not rubber). And here, citizens ... themselves ... for a carrot ...

    American Internet bloggers pointed to the beginning of the financial disaster in February 2017.

    It is believed that the disaster will be marked by the termination of service of all financial transactions by the vast majority of US banks and the subsequent chain reaction in the global system.

    As a consequence, all economic relations will come in the field of exchange in kind. The price will include alcohol, medicines, cigarettes, coffee, vegetable seeds, .22 caliber cartridges, 9-luger-para cartridges. People will begin to gather in gangs and establish laws of survival at a primitive level.

    the article is reminiscent of Seventh-day Adventists - the crisis will be, is about to come. And if you didn’t come this year, then in the next 146% will come. Well, if not the next, then through the next ... And so on.
