Emergency meetings in these days on markets and banks are still stuck in the same stage where central bankers and politicians are discussing over how to create out of nothing a few more trillions of Euros and Federal Reserve banknotes for the rotten system at the taxpayer's expense. I don't have to put a lot of effort into making their ideas seem ridiculous; according to figures released in the BIS September 2009 quarterly review, the total notional amount of outstanding financial derivatives in all categories rose 15% to impressive amount of epic proportions, $596 TRILLION as of December 2007.

According to EU Commission President José Manuel Barroso—who is known for spending his holidays aboard the yacht of the wealthiest man in Greece, Spiro Latsis, and who organized a bailout package for the latter's bankrupt bank—the European nations are threatened with an Apocalypse, civil wars, and military coups in several states, if the funds available for further bailout packages are not increased, and if citizens keep on demanding the social benefits they are used to. All euros are backed by the European Central Bank, but ECB is an idea backed only by confidence. Who will prevent apocalypse in bankrupt Europe?


The secret to the amazing increases in productivity in the American economy is finally out. Companies in the US are not hiring full-time workers. They are gambling that they can keep their margins high by keeping a vast part of the workforce, perhaps millions of people, unemployed. Unemployed people, it turns out to no one’s surprise, will work for very little. And, they will work without benefits, without job security, and without complaint.

 

The most important step in quantitative easing is that the central bank creates new money for use in an economy.
Central bank can do this because its money is accepted as payment by everybody. Sometimes dubbed incorrectly "printing money", a central bank simply creates new money at the stroke of a computer key, in effect increasing the credit in its own bank account. It can then use this new money to buy whatever assets it likes: government bonds, equities, houses, corporate bonds or other assets from banks.
A side effect of quantitative easing will be that this new money is expected to raise consumer prices.

Republic of Texas Begins Minting Private One-Ounce Silver Proof Medallions

 

Victoria, TX – June 23, 2010 – As the U.S. federal government increases its pressure on states and individuals working to reclaim rights guaranteed by the U.S. Constitution, the response from the freedom movement varies across the U.S., from the subtle “Tenth Amendment” resolutions to the re-awakening of state militias.

But to the south, the republic of Texas nation has taken a slightly different, yet more pro-active and hands-on approach.

 

 

“Everything’s bigger in Texas,” says District 8 senator Robert Wilson, “especially our will to resist tyranny. Remember the Alamo? We won nationhood by international treaty in 1836 when we soundly defeated Mexico’s president Santa Anna and his armies at the battle of San Jacinto. And since the U.S. Constitution doesn’t grant congress the authority to ‘annex’ another nation by a ‘resolution’, we stand on a solid lawful foundation to enjoy all the rights God granted us, like establishing our own separate economic system.”

While the rest of the country’s economic outlook turns more bleak by the day, the republic of Texas’s elected government implements precautionary measures to weather the storm. “Our three-tiered approach keeps us virtually unaffected by the federal reserve’s inflationary policy: we store our nation’s wealth in Silver, trade Silver with local vendors as often as practical, and help Texians ditch the sinking U.S. dollar by providing a cost-effective method to revert to the republic of Texas national metal currency, modeled from our currency of the 1800′s.”

Wilson, who is on the nation’s Depository Committee, views the strategy as a proportional response to the U.S. federal government’s recent rumblings regarding Americans’ right to own guns and organize local militias. “They don’t want us to have the means to protect ourselves. What are they afraid of? We must protect the Texian people with our independent silver-backed system, immune from their fraudulent and inflationary manipulation.”

The basis for the new Silver currency is established in partnership with the American Open Currency Standard, an organization most well known for the design of a similar economic system built for the Lakota Nation and the Free Lakota Bank.

“We are delighted that the republic of Texas selected the Open Currency standard for their new currency,” says Rob Gray, Executive Director. “This is a major accomplishment for our mission and a huge step in the direction of an honest system of trade not just for Americans, but also for nations across the world.” Gray’s group helps communities mint precious metals for local currencies and barter purposes.

Future plans for the republic include recruiting manufacturers and producers to trade with the government and Texians, as well as the establishment of a metals ‘bank’ to facilitate commerce and create an opportunity for loans and investment. Wilson concludes that more is to come: “The rest of the world is invited to join us in this historic project by purchasing our Silver currency and investing in our first depository. This is just the beginning; we don’t intend to sit on our hands and watch our nation and the U.S. drift into financial slavery.”
