Why can the US print as many dollars as necessary

Why can the US print as many dollars as necessary



In many countries, the popular "conspiracy theory", according to which the Americans control al-Qaeda, the leaders of terrorist organizations are CIA agents, the United States themselves blew up twin towers. Of course, this is nonsense. In reality, there is a system of managed conflicts - a technology that appeared in the 18-19 centuries and is actively used by the USA today. Of course, the United States does not control al-Qaeda, they do not have this direct opportunity. But they can control it from the outside, controlling the international security system. It is necessary only in time to redistribute forces - to strengthen the security system in some areas and weaken in others - as terrorists will find and implement this window of opportunity. At the same time, there are no direct instructions and instructions, and there can not be - there is no control system, but the ability to control is. This technology is not new.

Analyze news a tape about the events in Syria. We see a coalition of field commanders forming "rebel forces", mainly of a Sunni orientation. They are extremely heterogeneous and funded by the surrounding Sunni powers - Qatar and Saudi Arabia, and are also supported by Sunni Turkey and Jordan, which provide organizational support. All these countries have united against the Alavite ruling elite of Syria as against an ally of Shiite Iran. What is the US behavior in this situation? The United States is playing a difficult and not very clear game from outside, declaring some opposition groups as representatives of the people who rebelled against tyranny, others as “al-Qaeda cells” trying to use popular outrage for extremist and terrorist purposes. One comes help, up to weapons, the commanders of others are listed as targets for American UAVs in the region. There is no doubt that the US can easily put pressure on its vassals in the region - Qatar and Saudi Arabia - in order to cut off funding by one and support the commanders they want. Thus, the US can control the armed opposition to Bashar Assad, even if all of it is completely anti-American.

A good analogy of this kind of indirect control is the explosions. It is impossible to directly control the explosions, but by metering the fuel supply and leaving the outlet for expanding gases, you can create a rocket engine.

The struggle between the USSR and Britain over where to direct Hitler's aggression (west or east) is a classic example of unsuccessful attempts at external control of an uncontrollable force. The British Empire actively used this technology in the 18th and 19th centuries. Especially during the heyday, when the British controlled 25% of the globe, with an army of one hundred and fifty thousand people. Britain exercised this control by building complex structures of a balance of conflicting interests. For example, a state was created that included conflicting groups for a long time. The situation was controlled by providing support to one side or the other. The legacy of these old conflicts is the modern map of the Near and Middle East, especially states such as Iraq, Pakistan, Syria and Israel with Palestine. (Note that the most stable and independent states of the region - Iran, Egypt, Turkey - exist in their ancient historical borders). From the very beginning, the British created a situation where conflict was inevitable. By weakening or increasing the pressure on one side or the other, they directed this conflict in the right direction. The meaning of the creation of such a state as Iraq is that three forces were united in it at once - Kurds, Sunnis and Shiites, which under no circumstances are able to come to an agreement. This means that Iraq can always be easily governed from the outside through the support of one side or the other. Moreover, by playing the Kurdish card, one can always influence Turkey, and the Sunni-Shiite one - on Saudi Arabia and Iran. At the same time, both in Iraq (before the 1990s) and in Syria, religious minorities are in power, which makes the situation even easier to control from the outside.

After the Second World War, the United States began to use this technology successfully, since Britain lost its global military presence in the world. During World War II, the British transferred their military bases to the United States in exchange for military support — Roosevelt supplied destroyers and other military equipment to them from 50. A global military presence in all regions of the world is a key point. It is due to him the British Empire, and from the middle of the XX century - the United States can control the situation. Britain, like a metropolis, did not have enough economic resources to support the army, - economic power passed to the United States. Only a powerful economy can support a powerful military machine.

The mechanism of global managed conflict is very expensive because it requires a global military presence. But this presence not only provides the ability to manage conflicts, but also provides unique economic opportunities. In particular, the dollar is the world reserve currency largely due to the global military presence and the ability to control the world situation in the power key. It was not by chance that, along with the transfer of US military bases, the actual change of the reserve world currency from the British pound sterling to the US dollar occurred.

The Balkan conflict zone, the “new Europe” within the EEC, gives the United States the most powerful levers of influence on the European Union through NATO, where the United States has the predominant influence.

Since the beginning of the 2008 crisis, the US Fed has issued 2 trillions of dollars and continues to issue in the amount of $ 85 billion a month “until the situation improves”. It turns out, in fact, that many countries have been building foreign exchange reserves for decades, selling their non-renewable natural resources, wasting human resources and time - and all this Americans can create at the touch of a key on a computer at the Fed. We save these dollars with serious work. And Americans do not even need to earn them - just print. You do not even need to print - the issue occurs in a cashless form. They simply pressed a button - and bought themselves everything they needed - deposits, companies, real estate. At the same time, the rest of the world should not be persuaded to buy dollars - everyone does it with joy. The only way to protect yourself from the influx of the dollar is to buy it (otherwise a weakening dollar will undermine competitiveness). In addition, many countries, such as Japan, Switzerland, Singapore, dream of weakening their currencies, and the only way to do this is to buy dollars. And the military presence is just needed to convince the whole world that the dollar is stable, reliable, and generally the last resort.

With the euro, the situation is different. If the dollar is much stronger than the US economy, then the euro is much weaker than the European economy. This is due precisely to the fact that the European Union does not have a global military presence. As long as the euro currency does not have a military-political component, it cannot claim to be the dollar.

Russia is even easier. Two conflict zones - the Caucasus and Central Asia. It is enough for the US to push the activity of the Islamists in these two directions - and Russia will find itself in an extremely difficult situation. So the levers of pressure on Russia are ready.

If we proceed from the concept of managed conflicts, it is clear why the USA willingly supports instability in Eurasia. In each case, the reasons may be different (Afghanistan, Iraq, Egypt, Libya, Syria, etc.), but the result is generally geopolitically beneficial to the United States:

The arc of instability stretches across Eurasia from Morocco to Indonesia and the Philippines;
The United States remains in brilliant isolation from the rising zone of chaos;
The United States has a global electronic intelligence system, Echelon, which has no analogues in the world, allowing it to control world information communications of all kinds;
The US has a “whip” to control this chaos - a network of military bases and fleet drones - “drones”, allowing them to eliminate individual leaders and weaken individual groups;
The United States has a “carrot” - a system of indirect support for extremist Islamist groups (the main shock force of “chaos”) through the dependent regimes of Saudi Arabia and Qatar (it’s hard to believe that there is no connection between Qatar’s activity in the Arab spring and key military US base in the Middle East).
The technology of managed conflicts allows at any moment to undermine or weaken any other currency except the dollar. And since the entire financial world knows about this opportunity, he perceives the dollar in the right way.

    Something. painfully simplified. The direction is right, but
    The USA itself blew up the twin towers. Of course, this is stupid.
    The author should read for the problem.
    Japan, Switzerland, Singapore dream of weakening their currencies, and the only way to do this is to buy dollars.
    There is an inaccuracy - the own currency from buying up the dollar will strengthen. Switzerland, what’s the point? China in this clip - I would have agreed.

        Absolutely right. If a large army guaranteed a good economy and finances, the USSR would never have collapsed. And the thoughts in the article do not explain the external debt of 17 trillions, the bankruptcy of Detroit, the reduction in military spending in the United States, and much more.
        The article is an attempt to primitively explain complex things on the basis of one thesis. It is not right.

    Can't US seal dollars forever. It is not possible to inflate a soap bubble to infinity, sooner or later it will burst. All over the world, they understand this very well, and therefore, they begin, still timid, attempts to abandon dollar dependence and switch to settlements in national currencies.

      The USA buys out "extra candy wrappers" from the market, and therefore the external debt is growing. In the 80-90s they were saved by the collapse of the USSR and candy wrappers poured into us

    Quote from the article: "Of course, the United States does not control al-Qaeda, they do not have this direct opportunity. But they can control it from the outside," - and this is not the same thing?

    Quote from the article: "The technology of controlled conflicts allows at any time to undermine or weaken any other currency except the dollar. And since the entire financial world knows about this opportunity, it perceives the dollar in the right way." - what kind of nonsense?
    What kind of dollar strengthening are we talking about? Flooding with candy wrappers (dollar weight, yes). But not fortification at all.
    The Rockefellers themselves have long been withdrawing assets from the United States, turning them into gold, stocks, investments and more. They have long been talking about the need to organize other financial centers in the world, in addition to the Fed. They say that you need to switch to alternative currencies for trading (yuan, dinar, etc. And what is most interesting, not the euro).

    What a strange article.

    In particular, the dollar is a world reserve currency in many respects thanks to the global military presence and the ability to control the world situation in a forceful manner. It is no accident that, along with the transfer of US military bases, the world reserve currency actually changed from the British pound to the US dollar ... We are saving up these dollars with serious work. And the Americans do not even need to earn them - just print. You do not even need to print - the issue takes place in a cashless form. They simply pressed a button - and bought for themselves, everything they needed - deposits, companies, real estate ... The technology of controlled conflicts allows you to undermine or weaken any other currency except the dollar at any time. And since the whole financial world knows about this opportunity, he perceives the dollar in the right way.

    Despite some inaccuracies, M. Baranov is right, so the United States is creating "controlled chaos" in its favor using the old technology, but with modern realities.

    In many countries of the world, a “conspiracy theory” is popular, according to which Americans rule Al Qaeda, the leaders of terrorist organizations are CIA agents, and the USA themselves blew up the twin towers.

    The beginning of the article, in my opinion, contradicts the rest of it. Well, maybe not all leaders are ter. organizations and not only ter. organizations are CIA agents, here I recall Chubais's entourage (at least there is a connection). And if you remember whose capital controls the US, then the popularity of "conspiracy theories" is not surprising. And what method they control and where they got it from (although this is also suggestive, if you remember that England) does not matter.

    In my opinion, the author undertook to highlight and analyze the issue in which he poorly understood. What do you think there is generally control if not funding and organization? And through which institutions it is carried out is already the second question. The main thing is that there is a button "on" and "off".
    And the United States today is "an absolute evil".

    Mikhail Baranov is trying to understand the system of relations between politics, finance, management technologies and makes a series of allegations that are inherently wrong ...
    Although casually mentioning about conspiracy theory fully controlled "people" placed on key posts around the world ....
    Moreover, when it existed The British Empire - it was easy to do - there was no INFORMATION ENVIRONMENT, then wait, the TECHNOLOGY has changed, the processes have accelerated and the management has been somewhat "TURNED", which is not important, but in the end it leads to CRITICAL ERROR ...

    On the example of the Dollar, We see this — We all understand that this is a TRUE, but we continue to use it with timid attempts by PEOPLE (non-zombies)) to create our own settlement system BUT AN ANALOGUOS WITH THE EXISTING))) and this is a guaranteed failure, and those who are trying to do it .... unable to do this ....
    NO TECHNOLOGY))))


    Technology management through Jews and stupid (uneducated people)) while it dominates the planet .... Look at the politicians-luminaries (according to the media)) They confuse the Czech Republic with Chechnya, Austria with Australia, how many jokes about Bush, About drunk Yeltsin, the Baltic presidents and the president chewing a tie-THIS ELITE IS THE GOVERNANCE OF THE WORLD))))))))))))))))))))))))))))) rzhaka ....

    Who thinks so (seriously)), I think less and less. There is NO HUMAN INTERACTION, This is People Feeling and Most Importantly We see that development stops, they give us a mobile phone, and no one knows how it works)))) And the same Phone requires developed infrastructure in the form of communication nodes, transmission equipment, financial system, and the WORLD STANDARD that People are not able to implement, as PEOPLE ARE INDIVIDUALISTS ...
    We each do everything differently in ordinary life .... And here EXTERNAL MANAGEMENT is visible with the naked eye ....

    By the way, and the management of explosions and terror for us PEOPLE UNAUTHORITY ......
    An attempt to explain to us that the "camel drivers" came to New York, learned to be pilots and hijacked planes 2 (TWO)) and 3 (THREE)) blew up the Towers (before that, having thrown the passport through the window)) is just ridiculous (here I am with Baranov I disagree))) Although he is trying to explain it in everyday life with a minimum set of knowledge ...
    I set the article as a minus (like a school teacher -3))) neither this nor that, we wallow like the whole world in dermis))))
    Well, this is a thought))))) Something is in the world of escho)))))

    It seems to be understandable with America. It is not clear with Russia. Why is 45% of reserves held in US securities at 2% per annum minus inflation, i.e. actually with negative returns. What Siluanov says that these are reliable assets is more likely to be liabilities, and reliability should be justified by something: gold reserves, shares of enterprises, etc. But this is all privately owned, and under the obligations of the Fed only an honest word and paper. You can say anything, but America does not have assets for such an amount of dollars, unless America includes the concept: the rest of the world. At the same time, many projects in Russia are not being implemented due to lack of funding, while America is modernizing its production, making its economy more efficient by lowering energy prices at our expense, holding a zero refinancing rate.

    We must close our debts to all, if any. You need to close the amounts from this reserve fund. Use the rest of the amount for the development of the country. Do not be afraid that we will not have any large amount for insurance. Question. For insurance of what? What are we afraid of if we do not owe anyone outside. If the state has no debts, then it is not obliged to give anything to anyone, falling out of its own capacities and gaining loans. Yes, you can create a reserve from the currencies of different countries, which will only strengthen all of them, trust in them and our peace of mind as a result. Everyone will win. But these should not be prohibitive amounts. The development of the country within is the number one task. With our poor infrastructure and low level of production, we can work and work without looking back at any crises. We have many places where we can use our energy inside. Unlinking a currency from the dollar is the hook we need to jump from above. We are like a ship that very much wants to go to sea, and everyone looks into the distant distance, saying that now, here, .... but we forgot to untie the cable from the pier or raise the anchor.
    While we are hanging on the hook, we cannot say that the demand for our resources is our solvent guarantee of the ruble. Do not want the ruble, take the gas. Let's start with barter and so move on to the currency that both believe. It must be shown that the ruble = resource.

    Here is a vision of an engineer. Now economists will pile up, use some obscure words and show me the place at the desk. That they say there are many existing loans, the oligarchs / theirs got them, they need to be guaranteed by the state, etc., this is understandable. These are realities. They must be remembered in order not to enter into this city again. But this smoothing down ... I love when I am stroked on the head, but even from such caresses a hole (hole) is formed in the place of constant stroking belay

      This is fundamentally not possible, since the Carrensi BRD system works as a kind of balance. How much money we have in our economies should be a reserve fund. so that at one time it is possible to transfer all rubles in economies to bucks and vice versa, we will never be able to use the gold reserves! What is there to say even the federal budget of our country is on the billboards of the Central Bank, and the Federal Reserve can block it at any time in the same place and the national welfare fund is located.

    This article, as rightly noted here, is a simplification. However, "Occam's scalpel" as a method of cognition has not been canceled. The main problem of the modern economic model (and after the fall of the USSR it became the only one and had no alternative - they even began to write about the "end of history") is that money in it ceased to be just a means of payment (that is, a kind of equivalent of real goods or services). turned into a commodity. (On which the entire stock market is actually built) Which in itself means the inevitability of a catastrophe. There is a redistribution of activity in the non-production sphere. But at the same time, there are no more resources (real and not financial) - money cannot be eaten, money cannot be fired ... (although they say that money is the blood of war). In general, the world is rapidly heading into the same ass when, like in "Mad Max", cartridges will become the main currency ...

    one or another financial problem. no suggestions how to get out of this situation. In one word, the article was written by an ordinary person who has nothing to do with this problem. That's why I put the article -.

    about the fact that we ourselves have collapsed or it was the terrorists, we are unlikely to be able to find out the truth. although there are a lot of facts and arguments that put the official version in doubt.

    These topics are no longer debatable.
    USA created Al Qaeda to unite gangs in Afghanistan, to arm and finance them. The entire elite of al-Qaeda is controlled and directed by the CIA. Ordinary fighters use in the dark.
    ITC towers are, without a doubt, blown up under the leadership of the U.S. intelligence agencies, as proved by technical experts on demolition of buildings. During the attack, there were less than 3000 people in them, instead of 50000 people, as during working hours. Ordinary terrorists strive to inflict maximum damage; they are not restrained by the instructions of the USA government.

    The Balkan conflict zone, the “new Europe” within the EEC, gives the United States the most powerful levers of influence on the European Union through NATO, where the United States has the predominant influence.

    The impact on the European Union does not come from the Balkans, but from numerous military bases in Europe.
    Russia is even easier. Two conflict zones - the Caucasus and Central Asia. It is enough for the US to push the activity of the Islamists in these two directions - and Russia will find itself in an extremely difficult situation. So the levers of pressure on Russia are ready.

    The Caucasus is not a lever, but a small pimple, terrorists are constantly being shot there, and Central Asia, all the more, it is not part of Russia.
    The Yankees have no leverage against Russia.
