Securing A SAFE Future You Can Bank On!

Shocking New Book Exposes The Unsafe World of 21st Century Banking
DMB By DAVID BRADSHAW, Publisher, Idea Factory Press

20 Economic Predictions Come True Since 2010
DON’T BANK ON IT! book Offers 20 New Warnings!

INTRODUCTION

When it comes to financial matters, who can you really trust?

On 9.16.14 the most important financial book of the year: DON’T BANK ON IT! THE UNSAFE WORLD OF 21st CENTURY BANKING by Craig R. Smith and Lowell Ponte was officially released – which predicts your bank account may be hit by any of 20 major threats – dangers that daily news headlines are already reflecting, such as…

* The Cyber-Terror Bank Bailout: You on the HookBloomberg
* Banks’ Failure Plans Inadequate Say RegulatorsABC News
* US Banks Braced for Trillion Dollar OutflowsFinancial Times
* G20 Edging Towards Deal on ‘Bail-in’ For BanksReuters
* In Banks We Used To TrustMarketwatch

In fact, authors Smith and Ponte had to keep updating this earthshaking new 256-page book because their amazing predictions kept coming true coming true as printing day neared!

Most of today’s so-called economic “experts” offer plenty of financial market predictions, yet no accountability later on. We think the best test is how accurate an economist or expert has been in the past.

Here are 20 predictions Craig and Lowell have made over the last five years. Another 20 sober new warnings for the next five years can be found in DON’T BANK ON IT!


1. Beginning with their 2010 book CRASHING THE DOLLAR, monetary expert Craig R. Smith and veteran think tank futurist Lowell Ponte warned that vast government economic stimulus spending would not only fail – but would also be an “anti-stimulus” (page 182) that made things worse, not better.

CTD As they predicted, the stimulus caused fear and an expectation of high inflation that frightened businesspeople out of hiring and investing. This made the economy worse.

Keynesian economists in the White House predicted that huge stimulus by printing trillions would produce $1.50 in growth for every dollar they conjured out of thin air.

Years later, the results are that each stimulus dollar generated only 29 cents’ worth of growth, a waste of 71 cents per dollar, showing that Craig and Lowell’s “anti-stimulus” prediction was absolutely right on the money. (See THE GREAT DEBASEMENT, pp. 115-116)

2. In CRASHING THE DOLLAR, Craig and Lowell also warned of the coming bulldozing of homes and economic madness in Detroit (p.52); of the economic peril of the “dark matter” of the “money universe,” hundreds of trillions of dollars’ worth of derivatives (pp. 100-103), and of how America’s “life-or-death long-term bet” that we could turn China capitalist “before we transferred enough wealth to make it militarily superior to us” appears to be a losing wager (p. 23).

3. Craig and Lowell in CRASHING THE DOLLAR also warned that President Obama was a threat to use the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) as a political weapon (pp. 125-126), a prediction that proved to be chillingly accurate as two years later the IRS had targeted conservative and tea party 501(c)3 organizations.

4. In their 2011 book THE INFLATION DECEPTION, Craig and Lowell warned that a withholding of services by America’s overtaxed producers was coming – not unlike the strike depicted in Ayn Rand’s novel ATLAS SHRUGGED. Companies were keeping $3 Trillion overseas, beyond the reach of U.S. tax collectors (p. 58), and what today we call “tax inversions” were soon to begin.

TID 5. They predicted that the mere existence of a Big Government political party able to win control in any election produces a “Donkey Effect,” a drag that reduces business confidence and investment by roughly 25 percent (pp. 197-198, 201-202).

6. Craig and Lowell explained the genetic basis for American Exceptionalism in a specific “entrepreneurial” gene more common in those who chose to come here than is found elsewhere. This gene predisposes us to seek religious and economic freedom. They predicted that this raises our risk of stress-related diseases such as hypertension and cancer as Progressives turn America into the kind of Big Government society our ancestors fled to come here. Craig and Lowell warned that this same gene that made America successful is now, under Progressive Big Government, disproportionately killing the descendants of American pioneers. (p. 131-136).

7. The Federal Reserve, warned Craig and Lowell, is rapidly becoming a Fourth Branch of Government and the planner and regulator of our entire economy…an odd role for an entity supposedly created to keep politics out of monetary policy (pp. 54-55).

8. Fed policies, they warned, are crowding out small businesses from access to loans, and diverting those loans at rock bottom interest rates to government itself (p. 27).

9. Craig and Lowell were the first popular economics writers to point to evidence that several hundred billion dollars in foreign money used in “bear raids” against American banks were a key trigger of the near-collapse of the U.S. economy in 2008 (p. 28-31).

10. They explained how America had become an “Inflatocracy”, with a government of, by, and for inflation, a hidden tax (p. 189).

TGD 11. In their 2012 book THE GREAT DEBASEMENT, Craig and Lowell noted the emerging paradox that the stock market now goes up on bad news in the economy and down on good news. This is because all that now matters in the stock exchange casino is whether events will force the Federal Reserve to keep conjuring more trillions of paper dollars out of thin air. Stocks no longer have much to do with how well companies make or sell products (pp. 21-22).

12. Government stimulus policies, predicted Craig and Lowell, would henceforth produce not only a “multiplier effect” but also a “divider effect” by more heavily taxing some to buy the votes of others (pp. 85-86, 115-117).

13. They predicted more and more terrifying Middle Eastern and other terrorism that could involve the damage caused to global banking by EMP (Electro-Magnetic Pulse) devastation of computerized bank records (pp. 175-178).

14. Craig and Lowell predicted that in the emerging “cashless society” the government will impose an automatic 20 percent tax on every transaction (pp. 220-221).

15. And they predict the possible emergence of a new gold-based Islamic coin and other challengers to the world’s paper currencies, including today’s “global reserve currency,” the U.S. Dollar (pp. 246-249).

16. In their 2013 book THE GREAT WITHDRAWAL, Craig and Lowell foresee that we live in a time that will continue to bring many great withdrawals (p. 224):

(a) Americans renouncing their citizenship in record numbers;

TGW (b) “American companies…moving their operations overseas via foreign corporate partners” to avoid sky-high American taxes;

(c) Americans withdrawing from high-tax states such as California to low-tax states such as Texas;

(d) Unionized public employees withdrawing from their unions;

(e) Americans withdrawing from the workforce altogether;

(f) Savers withdrawing from bank accounts and bonds funds in what looks like a slow-motion bank run.

(g) Germany attempting (unsuccessfully) to withdraw their gold on deposit with the New York Federal Reserve Bank.

(h) Voters withdrawing their support from both major political parties;

(i) The Federal Reserve withdrawing gradually from its most recent economic stimulus program.

17. Craig and Lowell in this 2013 book also predict that an inflation tsunami is coming (p. 129), and that our government will continue to be a “Crisisocracy”, creating and exploiting crises to control and silence Americans (pp. 130-131, 137-138).

18. In their stunning fifth book together, DON’T BANK ON IT! THE UNSAFE WORLD OF 21st CENTURY BANKING, Craig R. Smith and Lowell Ponte predict that your bank account may be hit by any of 20 major threats (pp. 215-219).

Each one of these 20 perils is its own prediction, and most have already begun to come true in various ways.

Jesse James today would probably be unable to rob your bank, but they reveal that you might have trouble getting what you think of as your own money out of your bank, too.

The risks Craig and Lowell reveal are often amazing and always eye-opening.

You could lose your banked money to one of 125,000 Chinese cyber-warriors half a world away; to greedy banksters; or to rapacious spendaholic politicians who desperately need ever-more revenue to keep expanding the welfare state.

19. Your bank account exists only in a bank computer, not a bank safe, and is being robbed systematically right now.

20. Banking (as we know it) will soon die, Craig and Lowell predict, as will our old notions of money. The dawning “cashless society” and “Internet of Things” that are taking over will be convenient, costly, and risky. You might soon even be robbed via computer chips built into your next refrigerator, Craig and Lowell predict.

KERRY CASSIDY INTERVIEW WITH KAREN HUDES- World Bank Legal Counsel and Whistleblower


Hello everyone,

I am so grateful to Karen and Kerry for creating this informative and monumental interview on the current state of affairs involving International Finance and World Bank operations and connected political events. This is a must see interview that is far ranging and provides deep background information.
When this information gets out to people and discovery of suppressed financial/political events reaches the general public, this may be the tipping point towards integrity and dignity. Feel free to comment on the information herein…

Enjoy,

Ed

Who is Karen Hudes?

Karen Hudes studied law at Yale Law School and economics at the University of Amsterdam. She worked in the US Export Import Bank of the US from 1980-1985 and in the Legal Department of the World Bank from 1986-2007. She established the Non Governmental Organization Committee of the International Law Section of the American Bar Association and the Committee on Multilateralism and the Accountability of International Organizations of the American Branch of the International Law Association.
What did Karen Hudes blow the whistle on?

In 2007 Karen warned the US Treasury Department and US Congress that the US would lose its right to appoint the President of the World Bank if the current American President of the World Bank did not play by the rules. The 66 year old Gentlemen’s Agreement that Europe would appoint the Managing Director of the IMF and US would appoint the World Bank President ended in 2010 http://www.imf.org/external/np/cm/2010/042510.htm

In 1999 Karen reported the corrupt take-over of the second largest bank in the Philippines. Lucio Tan, a crony of Joseph Estrada, then President of the Philippines, acquired stock owned by government employees in Philippines National Bank (“PNB”) valued more than 10% of PNB’s outstanding capital without disclosure, as required by Philippines securities laws. Tan owned Philippines Airlines, in default on its loans from PNB. The government of the Philippines loaned $493 million to PNB after PNB’s depositors made heavy withdrawals. $200 million of a loan from the World Bank and a $200 million loan from Japan were cancelled. Estrada was ultimately impeached, and in 2007 an anti-corruption court in the Philippines required Estrada to refund graft he had plundered. The Bank’s Country Director in the Philippines reassigned Karen when she asked him to sign a letter warning the Philippines’ government that the Bank could not disburse its loan without a waiver from the Board of Executive Directors since the loan conditionality was not met. The World Bank’s Internal Audit Department refused to correct the satisfactory evaluation of the Bank’s supervision performance or the flawed report of the Institutional Integrity Department to the Audit Committee of the Board of Executive Directors. When the Audit Committee requested an audit of internal controls over financial reporting, KPMG, the external auditors, circumscribed the scope of their audit in violation of Generally Accepted Accounting Principles and Generally Accepted Auditing Standards.

Two days after informing the Board’s Audit Committee of the cover-up in the Philippines, Karen was reprimanded and placed on probation. The Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs requested the World Bank’s Audit Committee to look into the cover- up. Instead, the Chair of the World Bank’s Audit Committee requested an inquiry into the World Bank’s Institutional Integrity Department. The Senate Committee on Foreign Relations followed up with three letters to the World Bank. The World Bank forged documents and fired Karen in contempt of Congress. The World Bank also fired the Staff Association’s lawyer. The Staff Association stated that what had happened to Karen had damaged staff morale and prevented others from reporting misconduct. The World Bank’s Ethics’ Officer left in frustration after her request for an investigation by the World Bank’s Institutional Integrity Department was turned down.

Mr. Paul Volcker headed the 2007 inquiry into the Institutional Integrity Department. The Volcker Panel was discredited after sixteen staff employed in the Institutional Integrity Department received significant damage awards in compensation for abuses of authority to intimidate them during the Volker Panel investigation. A staff-member of the EU’s anti-fraud agency, Office Lutte Anti-Fraude, on the Volcker Panel wrote to Karen:
“My Director General and I met with a number of European Executive Directors of the World Bank a few weeks ago to discuss the Volcker Panel report. At the meeting there was also discussion about governance issues. My impression was that the European Executive Directors are well apprised of all relevant issues at the Bank and no further comment by OLAF is warranted even if it was within our legal competence.”

Karen informed Senator Bayh, “[t]he ongoing cover-up is an indictment of the probity of US oversight at the Bank and I would encourage the Senate to request GAO to look into it.” Senators Richard Lugar, Evan Bayh and Patrick Leahy requested GAO to investigate “internal resistance to increased transparency and accountability at the World Bank.” http://citizenoversight.com/pdf/blwb.pdf In 2008 Karen’s Congressman, Representative Chris Van Hollen, noted “that [Karen’s] claims and concerns have already been provided to the GAO…. and to the relevant congressional committees.” In 2009 GAO stated that it could not commence the inquiry “because of challenges we recently faced in gaining access to World Bank officials.” Senator Lugar asked what was delaying the GAO review during hearings on the World Bank’s capital increase.

Mr. Pieter Stek, then Executive Director for the Netherlands, and Chair of the Board Committee on Development Effectiveness, said:
“In a multilateral institution which should be governed by the rule of law and high standards of probity the charge of concealment from the Board of Executive Directors of information relevant to the exercise of its duty of supervising management and the persecution of the person who brings this to light is extremely serious. If correct, which I believe, this poisonous cocktail undermines good governance and ultimately the effectiveness of the Bank in fulfilling its mandate. I shall continue to assist Ms. Hudes in her efforts to have due process brought to bear, preferably by the Bank itself, on these issues of governance.”

David Brooks wrote:
“Then there are violations, when someone intentionally breaks the rules. Errors can be very hard for outsiders to detect. It was people inside the companies who were most likely to report fraud, because they have local knowledge. And yet 80 percent of these whistleblowers regret having reported the crimes because of the negative consequences they suffered. This is not the way to treat people who detect error.” http://brooks.blogs.nytimes.com/2011/06/13/living-with-mistakes/?comments#permid=34

IMF members: World economy still needs ‘decisive’ action

Published: April 20, 2013

— Finance ministers from around the world emphasized Saturday that much work remains to reach full recovery, especially in advanced economies.

In a joint statement following meetings Saturday in Washington of the International Monetary Fund’s policy-making committee, the finance ministers said that countries “need to act decisively to nurture a sustainable recovery and restore the resilience of the global economy.”

IMF economists this week underlined the need for the eurozone to bring banks back to full health, especially in harder-hit countries, and to rapidly move toward a full banking union with common oversight. Without a properly functioning banking sector, the smaller businesses that can deliver jobs and economic growth will continue to be starved for investment.

“Financial sector repair and reform remain a priority,” the finance ministers said. “Advanced economies need to balance supporting domestic demand with reforms to tackle structural weaknesses that weigh on growth, while implementing credible fiscal plans.”

The IMF this week pared back its 2013 global growth forecast by 0.2 percentage points to 3.3 percent. Most of that growth is coming from emerging and developing markets, while the eurozone economy is expected to contract this year.

After the meeting, Singaporean Finance Minister Tharman Shanmugaratnam, who chairs the IMF’s policy-setting committee, said that “around the table . . . there was a very strong view that we had to place greater emphasis on structural reforms to create jobs, as well as to boost productivity.”

Such reforms to improve growth vary among economies but often include streamlining labor markets, reducing barriers to starting new businesses and removing market-distorting subsidies.

The closing statement from finance ministers said that “accommodative monetary policy is still needed to help bolster growth but . . . eventual exit from monetary expansion will need to be carefully managed and clearly communicated.”

The rate-setting US Federal Reserve has kept interest rates near zero for more than four years, and additionally is pumping $85 billion into bond markets every month to further stimulate investment, in an unprecedentedly loose monetary policy. Central banks in the eurozone and Japan have taken smaller but similar steps toward highly accommodative monetary policy.

With central banks sailing into uncharted waters, worries have arisen that the new monetary policies could stoke inflation or inflate dangerous bubbles in prices of stocks, real estate or other assets. At the same time, with less than strong growth in those regions, there are concerns that the same economies could wither if central banks stop showering them with cash.

IMF chief Christine Lagarde said that the Washington-based crisis lender will study the “consequences of unconventional monetary policy . .. and what will be the good exit, as opposed to the more unpleasant exit for all members.”
