Military Review

In the United States began to conclude exchange transactions with reference to drinking water

66

In many respects sensational information appeared in the Western press. It concerns transactions that are made on the New York Stock Exchange.


Several sources at once report that a series of so-called futures contracts, which are pegged to water, have been launched on Wall Street. More precisely - to its value in a particular market.

It's about the cost of fresh water. The CME financial group is the initiator of this kind of security for transactions. This is the largest market for financial derivatives in the United States and Canada - contracts under which the parties to the transaction obtain the right or give the obligation to perform certain actions in relation to goods or securities - assets.

Now fresh water has become such a security asset to which the deal is tied.

This suggests that financiers are paying more and more attention to water. Water manifests itself as a resource growing in price, including in connection with the growth of its consumption on the planet. Already today, tens of thousands of people die every day from the lack of clean drinking water in Africa and Asia. Water is becoming a truly strategic asset.

Earlier, the "Military Review" presented an expert opinion, on the basis of which it was assumed that in the second third of the 21st century in the world the number of wars for water assets will exceed the number of wars for hydrocarbons.

The CME Directorate says that in 5 years almost two-thirds of the world's population may in one way or another face a shortage of drinking water.

One of the difficult areas in a number of countries is agriculture, where water consumption is growing.

Today it became known that exchange contracts are tied to the structure of Nasdaq Veles with a turnover of more than $ 1 billion. Economists have recorded significant activity already at the first transactions with "water" security.

            good The volume of oil futures has long surpassed the proven oil reserves several times. Inflating a "soap bubble" called "derivatives" in order to keep "afloat" the uncontrollably growing $ -th "mass" (as the main international reserve currency) is becoming more and more problematic ..... Well, jackals from Wall Street and found another "hot commodity" ..... I wonder how soon there will be sand futures from the Sahara? And why - also a valuable product - a building material, after all! Yes, I also forgot about "clean air"! There was a science fiction story in the Seeker magazine (in the 80s) about the compressed air trade in the near future ...

          Will move - "give away" for privatization! The private trader will come and put things in order.
          And then you definitely won't come to the reservoir!

                I think you can. On the South Coast there were problems with water even in Ukraine, with a canal. In 1977, as a child, my parents drove to the Crimea by car. Near Dzhankoy, the water in the well was noticeably salty.

            As far back as I can remember, there have always been problems with the supply of fresh water in the city. An always full bath and all sorts of basins, bottles, just in case! Then everything poured out together and fresh water was collected. There was no saving. From interruptions in water supply, the water supply pipes became unusable. Vicious circle .

          Proof, you can search for yourself. There was a cycle of programs as Chinese specialists were developing a remedy for algae parasites on Lake Baikal, because our scientists apparently could not do it. And some area was leased, allegedly under this pretext, then a pipe appeared and a processing contract water. Who wanted to recycle I hope you will understand.

      And the trouble is - the real subjects of bargaining, oil, gas, metals, are tied to the ephemeral paper, which is printed at a frantic speed by the US Federal Reserve System.
      Even paper is becoming a conventional concept - the dollar has almost completely become an electronic concept, migrated from wallets to plastic, from bank vaults to the servers of financial tycoons.
      The enormity of this financial bubble is daunting. If it bursts, it will be tight for everyone. Not only America.
      We urgently need to tie this monster to something real. Anchor. Designate as real value.
      But what to bind to? To oil - it will run out in the foreseeable future. To a cubic meter of gas - the same story ...
      To gold? Its quantity on Earth is limited and its price cannot grow at a gigantic pace ...
      Another thing is water.
      Drinking.
      Each of us will easily survive the day without a gold bar in his pocket or without a gold ring on his finger ...
      But to live a day without a sip of water ...
      And if we consider that more than half of the world's population is already suffering from thirst and because of water resources, wars are about to break out, then the choice is obvious.
      After the signing of the Treaty of Versailles, the losing Germany fell into hyperinflation.
      Workers were paid in quintillions. Every day, so that newly printed pieces of paper do not become worthless. And all the same - there was only enough for half a loaf of bread.
      The solution was found in 1923. We have "anchored" a new brand. Tied its market value to the real value of arable land or to the measure of grain produced by this arable land.
      The people called the new currency "rye mark". Or "rental".
      Remarque wrote about this well in his "Three Comrades".
      It lasted until the early 1950s and was on par with the Reichsmark.
      Salary has ceased to be calculated in amounts with fifteen zeros.
      Now, it means that the petrodollar is ready to become a water dollar ...
      Oh well...
      If Saudi Arabia is the leader in the amount of oil, then one Baikal exceeds all fresh water sources in the world in terms of water content.
      But we also have mighty rivers - the Ob, Yenisei, Lena ...
      It must be remembered that our country is the richest water power on the planet.
      And not to give this national wealth cheaply into the grabbing hands of rogues ... wink

        "Article 9 of the Constitution of the Russian Federation states:

        p. 1. Land and other natural resources are used and protected in the Russian Federation as the basis of the life and activities of the peoples living in the corresponding territory.

        p. 2. Land and other natural resources may be in private, state, municipal and other forms of ownership. "

        None of the constitutions of any country in the World, except Russia, has a provision under which land and natural resources (water) in it and on it CAN be in private, including FOREIGN property, although land and water are the basis of life. This is possible only in Russia because of the colonial Constitution imposed on us by the United States!

      You can also poke around snow-melting factories, which, based on the profitability of a liter of water, will certainly make a liter of desalinated water an order of magnitude more expensive. Africa is washed on all sides by seas and oceans, but in the process, desalination plants cannot solve the water problem there. And the cost of water will probably depend on its naturalness - artesian, glacial, horse or desalinated, which implies a different mineral composition. In general, the trend is not good, and the popular murmur of the type - "soon the tax for the air will be torn" will soon take on a completely different meaning and will become a reality.

    Water manifests itself as a resource growing in price ...

    Excellent ! Russia and this "good" - even get drunk. We will finish building the SP-2 and start laying the SP-3V (water supply).
    There are thousands of rivers, lakes, and continuous swamps in the West Siberian lowland. So we will drain the swamps for farmland. good

    Wall Street has launched a series of so-called water-pegged futures contracts. More precisely - to its value in a particular market.

    Drinking water is a valuable resource, so it comes as no surprise

    Once upon a time people read Jules Verne and believed that everything written by him was fiction. Now space flights are already a reality.
    In science fiction films, it was already about the war for water. We looked and giggled at the writers, and now we are faced with the fact that fresh water will be in short supply in the near future.
    What is the next fantastic predictions? Alien invasion, and FIG knows. Perhaps, humanoids are already flying towards us from somewhere in the universe?
    The 20th and 21st centuries have made science fiction a reality. And this must be considered

    Wall Street has launched a series of so-called water-pegged futures contracts.

    Wall Street scammers no longer have enough futures contracts for hydrocarbons. They need to expand the scope of sale that they do not have.
    Can you imagine what a large market for the sale of air, for example, or mineral, ore raw materials mined on Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, where the planet is an order of magnitude larger than the earth?

    They used to love making money out of thin air. Now we are on the water. the density of water is, if not mistaken, about 800 times higher than the density of air. Does this mean that the abundance of star-striped will increase in proportion to this ratio?

    Article 9 of the Constitution of the Russian Federation states:

    p. 1. Land and other natural resources are used and protected in the Russian Federation as the BASIS of LIFE and activities of the peoples living in the corresponding territory.

    p. 2. Land and other natural resources (WATER) may be in private, state, municipal and other forms of ownership. "

    There is no constitution in any country in the World, except Russia, where land and natural resources MAY be in private, including FOREIGN property, although land and water are the basis of life. This is possible only in Russia because of the colonial Constitution imposed on us by the United States!

    Your Name is also listed on the exchange. Rather, the collateral (loan) that you provide. You are a creditor for the global financial system, you provide it with emission. You are the source of money, not banks. Water is also traded. It is not water that is traded, but the provision of a security with water.
