Samson:  Half of the Earth's wealth is in the hands of 1% of the world's population

15th November, 2017

The Independent published an article entitled "Study Confirms: 1% of the world's population takes half of the planet's wealth."

The number of millionaires in the world has risen while half of the planet's population has about 3.5 billion people but only about 3 per cent of global wealth, a new study has found. 1 per cent of the world's population now owns half of its wealth, Indicating a lack of justice in the distribution of wealth.

The same study reveals that high net worth individuals were able to add substantial profits after the global financial crisis that began in 2008, increasing their acquisition of total wealth on the planet from 42.5% at that time to 50.1% today.
According to the Credit Suisse Global Wealth Report, 1 per cent of the world's population has about $ 106 trillion, which is 8 times the size of the US economy.

The report also shows that with the expansion of the base and the inclusion of more affluent people into the census, 10 per cent of the world's "rich" population has 87.8 per cent of global wealth, meaning that 90 per cent of the population has only about 12 per cent Of the volume of wealth.

On the other hand, half of the world's poorest people have only 2.7 per cent of the world's wealth, which has grown steadily since 2010 to an estimated $ 280 trillion.  LINK

Samson:  $ 3.5 million fine on fourth-largest US bank

​15th November, 2017

The US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) has approved a fine of $ 3.5 million for Wells Fargo Financial Services, due to lack of reporting of "suspicious activities linked to money laundering".

According to a statement by Wells Fargo, the company will pay the fine, as part of a signed agreement with the Securities and Exchange Commission.

This comes in the context of investigations into irregularities involving Wells Fargo officials in opening accounts without informing clients.

Regulatory authorities have identified "money-laundering activities" in the bank's US branches that targeted international clients, between March 2012 and June 2013.

It should be noted that the company has already paid high-value fines for various reasons.
Wells Fargo is the fourth largest US bank by assets of $ 1.3 trillion in 2012, the first by market value.

Wells Fargo is the second in terms of deposits, mortgage services and credit cards.


MilitiaMan:  What I find interesting is that around or just prior to Oct 7th the Feds shut down a currency trading desk of WF. This fine of $3.5 large, imo, being related to money laundering, suggests they (the SEC) fast tracked the issue. Take note of the timing of the post thread 7/#140 by Samson , it mentions 14 banks were to be closed in the Kurdish area and have not been,  they have been in meetings to get things in order as of yesterday. Whether or not it is related, it is to be determined, however, whenever does the SEC (if in this case related) ever do things that fast? They don't, imo.. But if the shake out was due to what is thought to be at our door, then it makes sense to fast track it and if related, they did a bank-up job... lol ~ MM


Samson:  Top Central Bankers Vow to Talk Investors Out of Easy Money

 15th November, 2017

(From L) Janet Yellen, Mario Draghi and Mark Carney at the event in Frankfurt, Nov. 14
Four of the world's top central bankers promised Tuesday to keep openly guiding investors about future policy moves as they slowly withdraw the huge monetary stimulus rolled out during the financial crisis. The banks pumped some $10 trillion into financial markets since the 2008 crisis—driving many markets to record highs.

But now the US Federal Reserve, European Central Bank, Bank of England and Bank of Japan are trying to wean investors off easy money without causing an upset. To do this, words will be key, the heads of the four central banks told an ECB conference on communication, RTE reported.

It is called forward guidance in banker-speak, essentially warning gently of what is coming.
"Forward guidance has become a full-fledged monetary policy instrument," ECB President Mario Draghi said in Frankfurt. "Why discard a monetary policy instrument that has proved to be effective?" Mario Draghi and his three counterparts are at very different stages in roll-back process.

The Fed is looking at its fifth rate increase and the Bank of England raised its own rate this month for the first time in 10 years.

But the ECB is merely reducing the pace of its bond purchases, and the Bank of Japan is still printing money at full speed, although it has signaled that no additional stimulus is likely.
US Fed Chair Janet Yellen agreed with Draghi that guidance has been beneficial "on balance" but stressed it should always be viewed as depending on how the economy actually develops. "All guidance should be conditional and related to the outlook for the economy," the outgoing Fed chief said.

Banks such as the ECB often say the envisage doing something but reserve the right to change their mind if circumstances change. History shows that preparing the ground for a withdrawal of stimulus is not always easy.

In 2013, the Fed chair at the time--Ben Bernanke—famously sent global bond markets into a tailspin by suggesting that bond purchases could be reduced. In the event, the "taper tantrum" meant bond buys would not be reduced for another 10 months.

Draghi had his own mini-tantrum in June when he hinted that the ECB's policy could be tweaked to reflect stronger growth. The market sell-off that followed was so big that  the eventual scaling back of purchases was relatively small and drawn out.

Bank of England Governor Mark Carney's guidance on the path for interest rates has also repeatedly been knocked off course by surprises in the economy, prompting one politician to call him an "unreliable boyfriend".

Speaking alongside Yellen and Draghi, Bank of Japan Governor Haruhiko Kuroda said the best way to avoid misunderstandings was to keep the message simple. "It should better be straightforward," he said. "That's the best way."   https://goo.gl/iCwsPQ

Samson:  Mugabe .. 30 years of presidency ended by the "coup"

 15th November, 2017

The Zimbabwean army announced on Wednesday its control over the rule of the African country, raising questions about the fate of the aging President Robert Mugabe.

Although the army was quick to announce that his move was aimed at "criminals" surrounding the president, that Mugabe and his family were fine, the scene of the coup seemed very important and a milestone in the history of a controversial leader who sat on the throne for more than three decades.

Robert Gabriel Mugabe, an early-stage teacher, studied in South Africa and Britain and was influenced by the Marxist orientation during his days in Ghana, the first British-African colony to gain independence.

Her emancipation inspired the man, so he decided to return home to start his political activity.

Mugabe was arrested in 1964 and released 10 years later. He then went to military action against the government, but his party took part in the 1980 elections and won a majority of seats in parliament.

Mugabe was appointed prime minister before ending the country's ethnic conflict that left thousands of people dead.

He was elected president in 1987 and has remained in office until now, despite the country's precarious state of affairs following his re-election in 2008.

Western countries accuse Mugabe of dictatorship and racism, say he has committed crimes against his people and persecuted his opponents. Britain has imposed sanctions against Zimbabwe within the Commonwealth Group, and the same has been done by the United States.

The European Union decided to prevent Mugabe from entering its territory in 2002.

The recent World Health Organization (WHO) decision to appoint Mugabe as a goodwill ambassador has sparked widespread debate and international criticism, particularly by the European Union, the United States and Canada, which later prompted the organization to reverse its decision.  LINK


The Storm is Happening, Mugabe Arrested by the Military in Zimbabwe

11/15/2017 03:31:00 AM  News

*It should be noted that these events occurred right after Zimbabwe's Military Chief, General Constantino Chiwenga made a routine visit to China last week.*

- President Robert Mugabe is in Military Custody

- Zimbabwe Military has taken control of local broadcast centers

- Huge Military Presence in Zimbabwe's Capital, Harare

- Zimbabwe Military has blocked off all roads into and out of the city

- Large amounts of Tanks & APC's were seen entering the city, explosions were reported

~ This is your RV people. The storm is happening.






Briona:  With no clear leader now in Zimbabwe, I find it hard to believe that a revaluation is close at hand their. Iraq has been waiting for stability, I would think Zimbabwe would be in the same position.

DKC101:  No need to wait on the Zim, still on track.. This a Zimbabwe military police action, not a Military Coup. China is still in charge, just arresting the bad guys.

Kittyndog:  We have been waiting on the Dinar for over 10 years. It seems like it is ready to go. We can exchange our dinars and can wait for the Zimbabwe. Something is better than nothing.

Briona:  That is why diversifying over several currencies is a wise move.

Kittyndog:  Zimbabwe is a long shot like in horse racing. When it happens we hit the jackpot. In the meantime, you have it safely tugged away.

WTCutter:  Think about it friends, maybe Mugabe and his wife were taken out of power because they are so corrupt. Have to have solid leadership chosen by the PTB

RustyBucket:  The timing of the zim situation is interesting, no?

Mobius:  Zimbabwe and Iraq a have a lot in common !  Both have great resources and been run by depots for 40-50 yrs.....both have been over looked for too long!  No Longer!!!!
