The 10.8 trillion failures of the Federal Reserve
Aug 18, 2014
Data from the little-noticed financial accounts report show the American people have $10.8 trillion parked in cash, bank accounts and money-market funds that pay little or no interest.
At the end of the first quarter, low-yielding assets totaled 84.5% of annual disposable personal income, the highest share in 23 years. Sure, people need to keep some money handy to pay their bills and some folks might have a few hundred or a few thousand in a rainy-day fund, but no one needs immediate access to the equivalent of 11 months of income.
In essence, there’s $10.8 trillion stuffed into mattresses.
Since the Fed began quantitative easing in September 2012, U.S. households have socked away $1.17 trillion in their low-yield accounts. That means that 95% of the Fed’s $1.24 trillion QE3 ended up not in bubbly markets but in a safe and boring bank account.

Maybe you finally hit on a useful subject instead of your usual stories about Grandma being targeted in a conspiracy going to China.
It is a mystery why money seems to be almost worthless, just take a look at what banks will pay you for your deposits. I remember back in the 1980's you could get a certificate of deposit that paid 15-18%, now you can have a huge IRA account and be lucky to get 1-2% for the longest term. Save you money, but they tell you you money is worth next to nothing. The banks use to make money off savings and loans but now it is not interest they make money on, it is all the fees they charge. Fees for everything under the sun, and most of them are ridiculous because its all computer generated and automatic, no human has to so some special handling of any kind, yet we pay fees as if they did. I had a small IRA account that the interest was so low, the annual $25 fee was more, so each year it cost me money to let them have to make a profit on.

841. GDP cheating (6/29/2014)
How the government cheat you on GDP of 1st quarter of 2014.
1. Apr 30, 2014. They said it increased 0.1%.
2. May 29, 2014. They said it decreased 1.0%.
3. Jun 25, 2014. They said it decreased 2.9%.
U.S. First Quarter Gross Domestic Product (Text)
By Chris Middleton Apr 30, 2014
Following is the text of the Gross Domestic Product report from the Commerce Department:
Real gross domestic product -- the output of goods and services produced by labor and property located in the United States -- increased at an annual rate of 0.1 percent in the first quarter (that is, from the fourth quarter of 2013 to the first quarter of 2014), according to the “advance” estimate released by the Bureau of Economic Analysis. In the fourth quarter, real GDP increased 2.6 percent.

U.S. economy collapses in first quarter, but growing again
By Lucia Mutikani 6/25/2014
WASHINGTON (Reuters) -
The Commerce Department said on Wednesday gross domestic product fell at a 2.9 percent annual rate, the sharpest decline in five years, instead of the 1.0 percent pace it had reported last month.

842. GDP cheating to assure a prosperous stock market (7/6/2014)
Although the GDP of the first quarter of 2014 is the sharpest decline in five years, another index of economy goes in contrary way. The Dow Jones index reaches its history high(over 17,000) on July 3, 2014. Since April – despite the poor economy that GDP suffered a big loss – the stock market remains in high level. Obviously, the ruler of this country is planning a rising stock market trap. They don’t want the bad news of fallen GDP to interrupt their plan. Then we saw this dramatic GDP cheating opera. They deliberately put the original report of first quarter GDP having 0.1% increase. That’s the minimum unit to separate two thorough different worlds – positive and negative. With this small 0.1%, people thought the US economy was still increasing, though at the cliff of recession. With other cheating method and propaganda, they keep Americans in a dream that US economy is going to prosperous. Here is how Dow Jones index kept rushing to its recent peak – watch the timing (from April to June) while actually economy is in recession.
Dow Highest Closing Record
The Dow historical closing high is 16,947.08 set June 20, 2014. Normally, investors say "sell in May," but that's why you can't time the market. The Dow is on a winning streak, after falling to 15,372.80 on February 3. Here's this year's streak:
•16,945.92 on June 10
•16,943.10 on June 9
•16,924.28 on June 6
•16,836.11 on June 5
•16,743.63 on June 2
• 16,717.17 on May 30
•16,715.44 on May 13
•16,695.47 on May 12
•16,583.34 on May 9
•16,580.84 on April 30
Be noticed that April 30 was the day they gave original report of the first quarter GDP. Could you see from this chart how they build this upward ladder to lure innocent people in to join this “rush to pick up the peak fruit” movement?

853. A trap in stock market (9/3/2014)
The core plot is to set up a trap to capture the international capital. That trap is the US stock market. Watch the chart. Dow jones index now is at its historical peak – above 17,000.
Although people feel nothing good in “economy recovery” – good pay jobs continue to loss; homeowners rate is the lowest in 19 years; more people dependent on welfare; yet the media give you another picture. They say unemployment rate drops to nearly 6% although most of the new jobs are part time ones. They say GDP jumps 4.2% in 2nd quarter because they control the national data collection and outsiders hardly know the truth if they cooked the data. Even the negative 1st quarter GDP -2.1% didn’t influence the US stock market because they are making up a trap.
To drive the money into that trap, the Feds created war crisis in Asia (mainly by encouraging Japan, Vietnam and Philippine to have a territory dispute with China) and In Europe (by create a civil war in Ukraine) and in Mid-East (ISIL is the puppet of CIA)
Once the international capital found the prospect of economy of Europe and Asia are dim, they have to turn to the US market. A large amount of money will invest in stock market. Then at certain level, a big case (e.g. a terror attack) will happen and US stock market will have a big fall to lock that lump of money up for a period.
Meanwhile, you will see the media beat the drum to propaganda how US economy going prosperous.
Here is a little news to justify planned collapse of the stock market and says the crash will be a big one.

854. Talks between China and US (9/10/2014)
On May 2, China has deployed an oil drill platform in controversial South China Sea. That caused a fierce standoff between China and Vietnam. There even was a riot took place in Vietnam.

Two months later there was a dramatic turnaround. China suddenly removed that oil rig, one month earlier than it previous announced. Withdrawal of rig was welcomed by Hanoi and Washington.
Chinese Oil Rig Near Vietnam to Be Moved
By JANE PERLEZJULY 15, 2014
BEIJING — A Chinese energy company announced Wednesday that a giant oil rig that was deployed in disputed waters off the coast of Vietnam two months ago had completed its exploration work and would be moved.
The announcement, released by Xinhua, the state-run news agency, came a day after President Obama called President Xi Jinping to talk about what the White House called the “important progress” at meetings between the two countries in Beijing last week, although they did not settle any differences.

Obviously, it was the result of the talks between officials of China and US.
Chinese president says a China-US confrontation would be a "disaster" for the world as he opens annual talks.
Last updated: 09 Jul 2014
The two-day talks being led by US Secretary of State John Kerry and Treasury Secretary Jack Lew is likely to take in China's currency, North Korea's nuclear programme and escalating tensions between China and neighbours in the South China Sea, and with Japan in the East China Sea.
http://www.aljazeera.com/news/asia-paci ... 63342.html
I believe a secret deal has been reached in the talk. That’s why I allege the Feds would create murder cases in September. See #849 and #852.

855. China got a permission to war on Japan (9/14/2014)
Was China soft in its territory dispute with Vietnam? Not really. I said John Kerry and Treasury Secretary Jack Lew visited China on July 8. A secret deal has reached in their meeting. I alleged China has been granted a permission by US to hit the Japan. China wouldn’t start a war with Japan because there is an military agreement between Japan and America. But US would remain as a bystander this time. Of course, China won’t engage wars in two fronts at same time. So it suddenly withdrew its oil rig from South China Sea. (announced on July 15)
The development next convinced me China is ready for a war with Japan in East China Sea. The big topic on a Chinese newspaper “World Journal” on July 26 made it very clear - “The sword points to Japan”.
Hundreds of flights disrupted in Shanghai; military exercises cited
By Julie Makinen
July 21, 2014, 12:45 PM|Reporting from Beijing
Hundreds of flights to and from Shanghai were delayed or canceled Monday as Chinese authorities imposed strict air traffic control measures reportedly due to military exercises -- the second such near-shutdown of airspace over the metropolis in eight days.
http://www.latimes.com/world/asia/la-fg ... story.html
Be noticed on this news:
1. The disruption on civil flights starts on July 13. Five days after secret meeting.
2. It’s a large scale military force movement started abruptly. It took more than a week as far as July 21.
3. It’s a preparation for a big military action on East China Sea started on July 27.

Why did US persuade China to abandon the conflict in South China Sea but turn onto East China Sea? As I have already told. US has set up a big trap in its stock market. (see #853) It’s waiting for the money escaped from war fields of Asia and Europe. Compare Vietnam with Japan, which market has more money to withdraw?

I'm with you katsung; expose the soft, air cushioned atmosphere of big money...
To take just one example (the whole transcript is available online) — here’s federal regulator Mike Silva (Segarra’s boss) “confronting” Goldman about a deal it had just closed with Spanish Banco Santander, one of the conditions of which was getting “no objection” from the Fed — something Goldman clearly had neglected to do.
“Just to button up one point. I know the term sheet called for a notice to your regulator. The original term sheet also called for expression of non-objection, sounds like that dropped out at some point, or … ?” he says.
Later he seems pleased with how this went: “At a minimum, we made them, I guarantee they’ll think twice about the next one, because by putting them through their paces and having that large Fed crowd come in. You know we fussed at ‘em pretty good.”
In a radio interview, Segarra said bankers were “all sort of afraid of Goldman,” which is why there was a “level of deference” showed to the financial giant.
Lewis also provides two key conclusions he drew from the stunning recordings:
1. You sort of knew that the regulators were more or less controlled by the banks. Now you know.
2. The only reason you know is that one woman, Carmen Segarra, has been brave enough to fight the system. She has paid a great price to inform us all of the obvious. She has lost her job, undermined her career, and will no doubt also endure a lifetime of lawsuits and slander."...

856. The war plan in Europe and Asia (9/21/2014)
5/2/2014 China deployed an oil rig in South China Sea. It started a violent dispute with
Vietnam because the area is a controversial territory.
7/8 – 7/9 State Secretary John Kerry and Treasury Secretary Jack Lew visited China to hold a
meeting there. I alleged a secret deal has been made between US and China. This
was an important timing point. The war plot in Europe and Asia began after that
7/15 China abruptly announced the remove of its oil rig from disputed area. One month
earlier than its previous plan.
7/13 – 7/21(7/25?) Unusual disruption of civil flights in Shanghai international airport and
other East China area. News said it was caused by military exercises.
7/17 MH17 of Malaysia Airline was shot down in Ukraine war area.
7/27 Chinese Ministry of National Defense announced that military exercises will be
conducted off China’s South East coast in the East China Sea from July 29 to
7/27 China military also announced that PLA holds 3-month long exercises
August: Ukraine government force started a large scale attack on East Ukrainian rebel
area but suffered a big loss.
August: Chinese military drilled over East China Sea.
You can see the key timing point is 7/8 and 7/9. After the secret deal of sino-America, two potential war fields in Asia and Europe started their war procedure. In mid-July, Chinese military had a big movement to gather its force in at East China in the name of military exercise where the potential enemies are Japan and Taiwan.
In mid-July West media also started a large propaganda war on the downing of Malaysia airplane – a preparation to justify the expansion of Ukrainian war.
The designated war over East China Sea doesn’t happen because it connected to the core plan of the Feds – the elimination of Kat Sung. China plays a role in that plan.

857. Secret deal and stock market (9/25/2014)
One phenomenon that China joins US July-October/2014 plot (trap money by war) was that there was an unusual uprising in Chinese stock market after the alleged July 8-9 US-Sino meeting.
Taking the advantage of US stock market plot, China government intending to trap its own domestic speculation capital too by pushing up its stock market. In early September, there was such a news in Chinese net:
http://finance.people.com.cn/stock/GB/n ... 00418.html
The logic of capital behind a bullish market: the speculation capital in real estate and mining industry are running into the stock market.
Sept. 4/2014 source: People net. Stock.
The current rapid uprising of A Share Market started from 7/22. In following 10 business days, the Shanghai securities index was up 168 points, a rising of 8.22%, many stocks even accumulated an up margin of 20% to 30%.
https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/fUER_ ... -h207-p-no
Shanghai Securities Index Chart
The sudden uprising of China stock market synchronized with the military exercises over East China Sea. That military drill will last for three months – a timing factor in their secret deal.
One payment of the secret deal also relates to the stock market. That is the big debut of Alibaba. The Chinese company got nearly 22 billion from US capital market making it the biggest U.S.-listed IPO in history after the IPO of credit card processing company Visa in 2008.
When US is thirst for capital to promote its economy, they gave that big money to China. Rare people know it’s a payment for the secret deal.
