- Dr. Jim Willie: A Systemic Lehman Event is in Progress, as the Global Financial Structure is Collapsing

Money Velocity Proves Q.E. Failure
The current monetary policy is stuck in place. It is highly destructive to banking systems, working capital, and financial markets. Yet it continues ad infinitum, actually until the great collapse. A systemic Lehman event is in progress, as the global financial structure is collapsing. The only remedy is the Gold Standard installation, which is happening, but its architects are from the East. They are labeled as enemies, when the root problem is in the Western banking hive.
The quickening has begun in earnest. The end game began in November with events picking up speed, remedy engaged in progressive steps, and geopolitical balance of power shifting in serious manner. The origin of the systemic failure can be found rather easily. Refer to just the last several years. Of course the seminal point was the creation of the Federal Reserve in 1913. Of course another critical event was the murder of President Kennedy, a champion of sound money. He joined Garfield and McKinley in that respect, as assassinated US Presidents, the common link being their favor of the Gold Standard or sound money. Of course another key point was the abrogation of the Bretton Woods Accord in regards to the Gold Standard Agreement. Following the Tequila Crisis in Mexico in 1994, the expansion of margin credit and debt was insane. The climax in recognition was Greenspan’s famous admission of Irrational Exuberance, which bears his blame. Following the tech-telecom bust in 2000, the expansion of every conceivable type of credit and debt was insane. A natural recession was actively avoided, assuring a doubled effect several years later. Following the Lehman failure, every possible wrong decision was made, in vigorous pursuit of continued fraudulent money and sustained criminal banking enterprise. To be sure, no solution or remedy or reform has been sought. What comes is a new systemic Lehman event, in a crash of the global bond, banking, and currency systems together.
The systemic failure was guaranteed in my mind, when the big banks were given license to continue operations even while both insolvent and guilty of multi-$billion fraud. Such is the essence of the Fascist Business Model, a term most mainline economists and financial analysts rigorously avoid. No big US or London bank has been convicted of a felony, nor any executive from their bank firms gone to prison. This license was joined with the extraordinary corruption of money in the last gasp of monetary excess. The result was a required liberalization of monetary policy, which put the systemic failure on a guaranteed time line.
The Quantitative Easing (QE) monetary policy is highly destructive. It combines with another equally destructive measure in the Zero Interest Rate Policy (ZIRP). Together they are a double barreled shotgun killing the USEconomy and its financial structure. Worse, they are killing the Global Economy and its financial structure based upon the USDollar. Put aside motive or intention to scuttle the nation. Focus instead on the wreckage from official policies in place, both of which the Jackass forecasted to occur, and both of which were also forecasted to remain in place permanently by this analyst.
