The "red zone" of the world: who pays, he calls the tune, burying creditors

A doctor in any field of science must first analyze the problem, then make a diagnosis, and only after that, prescribe treatment. In the previous three letters from the "red zone", I rather described the existing situation through the eyes of a witness and an involuntary participant in the whirlwind that brought my homeland to the "red zone". In my publications, I rather tried to tell people the truth than to force them to delve into a rather difficult and to some extent terrible analysis of the development of human societies.


But, in the end, you still need to understand why the United States declares Russia, China, Iran as enemies? Why is it destroying the states of the Middle East and Latin America? Why is he constantly waging wars and organizing "orange revolutions", exchanging unwanted rulers for pleasing ones in many countries? And why are the completely obvious and harmful to their normal life American tricks supported by the EU countries and the scum ruling the former Soviet republics who want to join them?

After all, no one threatens the States, and no one sends missiles, bombers, or the army and navy to their territory, and does not create military bases? Moreover, everyone agrees to supply the voracious country with any goods for their dollars to cover their eternal trade deficit. There is not so much the world around us sees American-made goods. And technological advances for the most part are the result of the efforts of emigrants from just those countries that they robbed, declaring them "aggressors."

The United States gets whatever it wants from the world around it. So where does this attitude towards other peoples and countries come from? What are they missing?

They shoot not debtors, but creditors


For us, who were born in the USSR, such a demeanor is difficult not only to accept, but simply to understand. But in the 90s, which is not superfluous to remember, they began to explain a lot to us. And the main thing: they shoot not debtors, but creditors.

Read Dostoevsky's Crime and Punishment, where a usurer-creditor is killed. Indeed, the owner of Raskolnikov's rented room is very similar to the US authorities:

In fact, he was not afraid of any mistress, no matter what she planned against him. But stopping on the stairs, listening to all sorts of nonsense about all this ordinary rubbish, to which he has nothing to do, all this harassment about payment, threats, complaints, and at the same time dodge, apologize, lie, - no, it’s better to slip through somehow. cat up the stairs and sneak away so no one can see.

Perhaps doubts will immediately appear - what the conversation is about, because the United States is almost the largest and strongest economy in the world. To this I must answer: the gap between the imaginary and reality is at the heart of both the achievements and the misfortunes of the human race.

First of all, let's think about the economic phenomenon that we constantly encounter on a daily basis, which is called "money."

To begin with, let's think, what is a "ruble"?

The heads of firms and their accountants (also some citizens) will immediately remember that in a certain bank they have some kind of "checking (current, bank) account" on which a figure is written about the rubles "belonging" to them, which they can have in two ways ... The first method: if the seller of the goods or services agrees to this, then you can order the bank to reduce the number on your account and increase the number on the seller's account by this amount. This is called a "payment", after which you will have a product, and the seller will have an increase in the number on his account.

The bank in which your account is located will see this operation in this display: the number on your account for the bank is its debt, its obligation to you. If you ordered to transfer money, then his debt will either decrease if the seller's account is in another bank, or it will be transferred from the account of one client to the account of another.

Moreover, for the owner of this "money" there is a certain risk and additional costs. The risk is that the bank belongs to certain people who can send your funds to their account at any time and, as it was said in one pre-war film: “the most important thing in the profession of a thief is to get out in time”. But sometimes the owners of the bank cannot get out - if they are covered by the banking supervision or the "roof", or competitors.

The additional costs for transferring money by Russian banks are just as extortionate as the entire "banking system", which does in the interests of a group of people what in the USSR did one State Bank for free. For transfers, banks charge a percentage of the transfer amount, which has no justification given the nature of the transaction. Indeed, intra-bank transfer is included in the standard set of work for a bank accountant. A transfer between banks requires costs that do not depend on the amount of the transfer. Note to prevent criticism: even the payment systems SWIFT and the Central Bank of the Russian Federation carry out transactions for amounts that practically do not depend on the transfer amount.

The second way to use the bank's obligation to you is to issue you paper obligations of the Central Bank of the Russian Federation (banknotes) in accordance with the number on the account. Your bank will be able to do this if it has a corresponding requirement on the account with the Central Bank, that is, the Central Bank owes your bank. But just as for the "payment" in numbers on the accounts, no one bears any responsibility for the offer to exchange real goods for banknotes, except for the high contracting parties.

The result of these operations is extremely simple and straightforward. One side has a real product, the other has a number on an account or a banknote. What to do with them is the business of the "owner". But as a result of this operation, there is also a third party - the bank, which considers the owner's funds to be its debt.

It turns out that a cute couple is old as the world: a creditor and a debtor. And the problem is as old as the world: how and with what will we repay the debts?

And the debtor is peculiar: not an old money-lender, not a stingy knight, but a modern commercial bank for you. There is a lot of money, but there is nothing to give: money has no material nature. Moreover, even the numbers (both their own and others') were given to the bank for safekeeping or on the basis of a return with additional income for the client or the owner-shareholder.

The way out of this situation is simple: you need to lend all funds (both your own and others') for a certain period, subject to a return with an increment. Thus, the return of the debt to one is secured by the debt of the other. Banks provide a whirlwind of debt, which should reflect, oddly enough, the movement of material resources. But, unfortunately, in the modern world this is not always done.

US sanctions for US creditors


And this is especially regrettable on the scale of the world monetary system after 1971.

Until that time, settlements between countries were carried out by transferring the difference of balances of payments using gold, a material product. In 1944, the countries agreed not to constantly carry gold, but to use the American dollar as its representative. The currency of one country was taken as a surrogate for gold under the guarantee of the American government that gold would be returned to the owners of the American currency at the rate: one troy ounce of gold for 35 US dollars (1 dollar - 1,5 g of gold).

But the guarantees of the US government are as elusive as the treaties it signs. French President de Gaulle was the first to experience this. At a press conference in Paris in 1965, he noted that the accumulation of the American currency as government reserves created a privileged position for the United States, allowing them to maintain an imbalance in their balance of payments and cover it by printing dollars. This led to the expropriation of European businesses. He also said that the dollar no longer enjoys international confidence. In 1950, France had a gold reserve of 600 tons, in 1965 - 4,2 thousand tons. (This is to the question of the "safety cushion" of some of our "specialists").

De Gaulle did not trust the Anglo-Saxons ever since the war. Therefore, he exchanged dollars belonging to France for gold. As a result, he received student performances in 1968 - one of the first rehearsals of the Orange Revolutions.

And he was right. By 1980, the gold provision of state reserves of the entire capitalist world amounted to as much as 4%. Then came the famous "oil price revolution." The Arab sheikhs got many, many "petrodollars". Of course, the Americans are not stupid, and they did not pay in gold for oil. President Nixon, in August 1971, unexpectedly announced that the United States was withdrawing from guarantees issued in 1944.

But if the dollar is not backed by anything, then it is just a promissory note: the promise to give something for it is worth little. Therefore, the export of real goods for dollars, which then either "freeze" or limit the possibility of purchasing the necessary goods and services for them, is simply ridiculous. Whenever it was so sad for the robbed countries and peoples.

The mechanism for the appearance of these promises is not simple. First, the US approves a government budget with a decent deficit. They do not apply to themselves the requirements of the "Washington Consensus" about a deficit-free budget. (The details of this "consensus" are set out in my channel about the commandments of economic murderers).

Further, Treasury bonds are issued for the amount of the deficit. What those who wish will not buy will be purchased without fail by the banks of the US Federal Reserve System. In other words, they will provide the Treasury with the corresponding amount of dollars against the debt of the Treasury. An old operation: to cross the pig into a crucian carp. Look soberly: the money is the name of the Fed's promissory notes issued against the collateral of the US government's promissory notes. Thus, the United States received more than 28 trillion dollars worth of goods and services under its promises.

So, the first conclusion. The United States declares its enemies and tries to stop the development of its creditors with sanctions. This applies to many countries plundered and destroyed by wars and coups organized by the United States. This also applies to those who do not give in - China, Russia, Iran.

Second conclusion. Claims for world domination by any country inevitably entail domination over the poor and ruined countries, the flight of robbed people to other states, which will always be hostile to them.

Third conclusion. Greed has ruined the frayer, and if it has not yet ruined it, then for many it is becoming more and more clear that selling for dollars is more expensive for themselves.

But to hope that everything will happen by itself is not worth it. The saying that hope dies last is not always true.

As early as the beginning of the ⅩⅦ century, the Spanish Jesuit Baltasar Gracian wrote in The Pocket Oracle:

Don't start with over-hoping. When something is over-praised, it often falls short of expectations. Reality cannot keep up with imagination, because it is easy to imagine what you want, it is difficult to achieve.

From the marriage of fantasy and desire, something is born more than life allows. No matter how great the achieved, it does not satisfy the spirit, and, seduced by excessive hopes, he experiences disappointment rather than delight.

Nadezhda is an expert in forging the truth; let her sobriety restrain her, caring more about useful than desired. In the beginning, in order to arouse interest, you should provide some kind of loan, without laying out, however, all the cash. Let reality surpass all expectations and give more than expected.

But for a bad person, such a rule is not suitable - here an exaggeration is even useful: everyone is happy when it was not justified, and now they find bearable what previously seemed terrible.
(Baltasar Gracian. Pocket oracle. Criticon. "Science", M., 1984, p. 9).

    Even the lazy one already knows everything about the dollar, it would be nice to talk about the ruble .. which, despite the fact that it can be provided with any of the most liquid goods, for some reason has only been weakening for 30 years .. just like our economy.

      Truth is old, you take someone else's, and you give yours.
      Now, about the dollar, ALL economies are sitting on the dollar. And the PRC has accumulated as much of them as (probably) the Yankees.
      Where to begin? From the end. The Saudis and other OPECs will stop selling oil for dollars.

        hi
        A banal question arises. Why would the Saudis stop this? Saudi Arabia is the third largest oil supplier to the United States after Canada and Mexico.
        As far as I understand, Canada and Mexico are also quite satisfied with the calculation in dollars.
        At the moment, the Saudis are doing pretty well trading for bucks. The world's largest arms importer, Saudi Arabia, increased its arms purchases by 61%. The main arms suppliers to the kingdom are the United States (79%), UK (9,3%) and France (4%).
        Quote: knn54
        Either for your own currency or for another strong-yuan, euro, etc.

        And if you recall the 1974 Agreement between the Amers and the Saudis, the former buy oil from the latter, and the latter buy up US debt obligations. it was this step that prevented stagnation and crisis in the United States. (oil-producing countries have announced a boycott of oil sales to the United States).
        Let us remember how the Saudis, at the "request" of the amers, "dropped" the oil and the USSR fell into a serious hole.
        These countries are linked not only by trade relations, but also by serious political ones.

        BEIJING, January 14. / TASS /. Trade turnover between China and the United States at the end of 2020 grew by 8,3% year on year, to $ 586,72 billion. This was announced on Thursday by the General Administration of Customs of the People's Republic of China.

        Trade turnover between Russia and China is 100 billion dollars!

      I dont know. I don’t understand. Everything I buy is either ours or Chinese. From the American only Hollywood movies and computer toys. But I pay in rubles, tightly tied to the dollar exchange rate. Not yuan, not tugriks, not a barrel of oil or salted mushrooms. And to the dollar.
      Can anyone explain why the Chinese have the world's first economy, produce real value from copper to space rockets, but use the dollar, not their currency? Explain clearly and “on your fingers” - why does China need a “yuan” to the dollar?

        I will try to explain to you why the Chinese need a dollar.
        The Chinese don't live in a vacuum.
        They buy something for production in other countries - machines or equipment, for example, something on the contrary, they sell to other countries. All these processes are stretched out in time, and do not take place immediately - contracts are preliminarily concluded, materials and equipment are purchased under these contracts. Both buyers and sellers want stability in transactions - that is, if the owner of the plant has calculated how much he can spend on equipment at a certain price of the manufactured product, he must be sure that after he purchases the equipment and before he sells the finished product, product prices will not change, but will remain approximately corresponding to the calculated ones.
        Then he will receive his estimated profit. The dollar provides this stability more or less.
        On the other hand, it is more convenient for you to make all calculations in the same currency, so as not to lose when changing exchange rates. And there is a lot of dollars in circulation, so you can count on it and be sure that you will make the calculation without exchanging dollars for another currency.
        Something like that.

          Mom told a similar story. Under the USSR, when she worked in the Arctic, she received a good, double salary. All the friends spent on some trinkets, they went to cafes - restaurants, and one took it as a rule - she bought a gold product with every paycheck. Simple. There is a ring or earrings .... And in a liter jar!
          When they parted, she already had "half a liter" of gold and the habit remained.
          Mom remembered her when, during perestroika, these idiotic exchanges of money / notes began. She remembered how an intelligent and far-sighted woman - with gold, no financial reforms are scary.

            Buying jewelry only makes sense if it is some kind of artwork such as Elizabeth Taylor's necklace with the La Peregrina pearl, which only get more expensive over time.
            And buying an ordinary jeweler from a store is a waste of money, since they will be taken back with the purchase two or three times cheaper.

                  I absolutely agree with this, but it was about investing in gold. It is unlikely that it will be possible to make money on it, unless of course a professional speculator is engaged in this. Yes, in dollars an ounce has risen in price over 10 years from 1100 to 1700 now and this is not a lot (VAT and inflation eats up), but in this way it is quite possible to save money.

                    There may simply be nuances. Remember how under Pavlov, it seems, in a very short time, 50 rubles and some other bills were withdrawn from circulation. Just imagine.

                      Well, the Union is no longer there, but in the matter of choosing between products and bank coins, these are definitely coins. Scrap in a pawnshop will be accepted 2-3 times lower than the market value, and without taking into account precious stones in general, an investment coin, in almost any bank, will be accepted at market value.

          Money "pyramid"
          Capitalism itself is essentially a planetary economic pyramid. The top thrives as long as there is expansion at the expense of new colonies at the bottom. No expansion, get a crisis, a "great depression". Sergei Mavrodi, in fact, has not invented anything new in his "MMM", having generated a mini-model of the world system.

          Here they ask, "So where does this attitude towards other peoples and countries come from? What are they missing?".
          Most importantly, those who teach life to other countries themselves have the greatest public debt.

          32-34% of the total amount of debt consists of liabilities to financial institutions - investment funds, banks and individuals;
          38-40% of the more than 28 trillion US dollars is owed to foreign investors who have invested in government securities of this country;
          26-28% - debt to internal structures - FRS, insurance, pension funds, etc.

          The author said who is being "shot", who is owed the most, but besides, it's good to make money in wars. It was the Second World War that brought the United States the greatest profits, made the dollar the world currency, and the United States the actual leader and master of the global economic pyramid. The republics of the former USSR and Eastern Europe replenished the base of the pyramid, and the expansion ended. New wars should write off debts, give profit, and, the world "MMM", its leadership, again in chocolate, and suckers with "candy wrappers" from this chocolate.

    This is only what is imported from the United States, and if you take into account how much American firms import from other countries, and how much American companies own in Russia, the question should disappear by itself.

        The equipment is American, the machine tool industry in this country died along with the USSR.
        Raw materials are practically all from abroad, and in fact only labor remains, for it is cheap.

    And this is nothing, only 25% of Treasury bonds are owned by foreign borrowers, and the remaining 75% are owned by domestic financial institutions of the United States. Only the refusal of the dollar in international transactions can somehow shake the position of the United States. Yes, this process is going on, but with such small steps. And don't forget that the United States has the most powerful army in the world and can do whatever it wants with non-nuclear countries.

    The author seems to be both a professor and a doctor of economic sciences, but instead of an intelligible presentation of the history of world monetary systems with their positive and negative sides, he built another propaganda about the funeral of creditors, in which the change of world monetary systems does not occur as a result of the maturation of certain conditions, but in the result of political decisions. That is, he turned the question upside down.

      What "conditions" are we talking about? Nixon had a political decision not to give gold for dollars. Stalin also had a "political decision" - to abandon the pegging of the ruble to the dollar and introduce the gold parity of the ruble. And Roosevelt in 1933 introduced a monopoly on the sale of gold to the state by requisitioning gold coins. And history is easier to understand from the standpoint of developed forms in comparison with the previous ones. And what to do next is easier to understand, understanding that money, stocks and other bells and whistles are virtual reality.

        Political decisions of this level are made under certain conditions. And if contrary - then the effect is the opposite.
        Therefore, both Decree No. 6102 and the dismantling of the Bretton Woods system had their own objective reasons.

    the author writes - "money has no material nature" !!! ... Money is the hypostasis of value, the value embodied in a material commodity is labor. Therefore, money is exclusively material.
    When money is made intangible, inflation starts. Worldwide, sluggish. And then crises. It's like believing in the dollar. It is Vera who has been supporting the dollar for many years.
    It was much more interesting to read the article about the energy ruble. About the ruble pegged to the kilowatt.

    How to deal with the dollar? If we accumulate dollars, thereby we strengthen it. Of these three countries, only China can do something against the United States. And then, if he demands to repay his debt of 10 trillion dollars. But there are big doubts. Iran, in order to equalize the economy, receives 400 billion from China. If the US financial system collapses, it will only be due to its own mistakes.
