    This is a continuation of Part 1 which you can view here. What’s the real agenda?  Well, historically speaking, nearly every war has been about resources.  Food, oil, power, control, trade, and access to critical resources have been the reasons for both standing armies and the wars they’ve fought. Today is no different, except for…

    G20 Authorizes Global Printing of Money Out of Thin Air

    In a completely expected move, politicians from around the world gathered and made the decision to spend a lot of money that they didn’t have and which doesn’t exist (yet).

    I am referring to the recent G20 meeting, where the global crisis was the main topic. As you may know from my past writings, I hold it as a near dead-certainty that national politicians can be counted upon to spend instead of cut and to print instead of tax. It’s just natural to want to take the path of least resistance.

    If local politicians had a printing press, they’d print, too. But they don’t, and so they hike fees and taxes on things like roads, gasoline, fishing licenses, and building permits when things get tight.

    Printing money out of thin air is inflationary and unfair. It steals from savers and preferentially enriches those at the head of the handout line. It diminishes all the money accumulated from past production and inappropriately reinforces the belief that something can be had for nothing.

    So I was more than a little intrigued when I read about the $1.1 trillion pledged by world leaders to the IMF. Where did it come from? Who was donating what? As always, the devil is in the details.

    Real economy shudders to a halt

    As we cast our gaze back on the year, it is clear that, even as the world’s monetary and fiscal authorities applied gigantic solutions directly to the banking industry, their efforts went largely unnoticed by the real economy.

    The theme for the period from 2000 to 2008 was “globalization.” It turns out that this may have been a fad.
