Don961:  Cuba Will End Dual Currency System After 2 Decades

Thursday, February 15, 2018

For more than two decades, Cubans have used a unique dual currency system to protect a fragile economy, but with just weeks of his mandate remaining, President Raul Castro has signaled much-delayed change is finally coming.


Plans to scrap the divisive system were first mooted in 2003 as part of a series of market-oriented reforms introduced by Castro, who is due to step down in April, AFP reported.

Now, after years of delays, authorities on the Caribbean island are finally expected to bite the bullet and begin consolidating the two currencies, despite fears of a shock to the economy.

“This issue has taken us too long and it cannot be delayed any longer,” Castro said in a speech in December.

The government has resisted any commitment to a timetable, but many observers believe a meeting of the Central Committee of the Cuban Communist Party next month will finally set the process in motion.

The country has had two currencies since 1994 when it introduced the Cuban Convertible Peso, or CUC—alongside the Cuban Peso, the CUP—as part of measures to protect the economy in the wake of the collapse of its biggest sponsor, the Soviet Union.
The CUC, originally used exclusively for foreign trade and in the tourism industry before gradually seeping into the normal economy, is worth about 25 times the CUP and pegged to the dollar.

The dual currencies created a two-tier class system in Cuba, which favored those with access to the lucrative tourist sector through hotels, restaurants and foreign trade.

With the CUC, the state allows its companies to import at a preferential exchange rate-a dollar for a Cuban peso. The distortion allows state entities to ensure their margins while offering the public affordable prices in a country where the average monthly salary is around $30.

But the current system masks inefficiencies in the state sector, economists say. “The monetary duality is causing difficulties to evaluate the economy and competitiveness,” said economist Omar Everleny Perez, citing a complicated relationship with international markets, already hampered by a US trade embargo in place since 1962.

Samson:  The new US Federal Reserve Chairman seeks to reassure the economic community

 14th February, 2018

The new US Federal Reserve chairman, Jerome Powell , sought to reassure the world's economic community yesterday after a wave of market volatility that led to major losses last week, about 10 percent of Wall Street's key indexes, Before improving over the past two days.

In his first message to the world, Powell said at the swearing-in ceremony yesterday that the US central bank will continue to monitor risks to financial stability and maintain "fundamental" improvements in the rules of the financial sector since the 2007-2009 crisis,

"We will maintain the gains in financial regulation while seeking to ensure that our policies are as effective as possible, we will remain vigilant in anticipation of any risks to financial stability."

Powell's assurances coincided with a note by US investment bank Goldman Sachs that current market turmoil was only a "modest" risk factor for the strong global economy, as most losses occurred in the US stock market due to rising bond yields, .

Goldman Sachs analysts said in a research note issued on Monday that "our results are in line with our market team's assessment that last week's sales wave was for technical reasons mostly, not of a fundamental nature," explaining that "the history of market corrections During the periods of strong economic data indicates that this correction will probably be shallow, not long and extended.

Yesterday, Asian financial markets recorded a significant rise in trading, supported by US equity gains at the end of trading Monday for the second day in a row, but European stocks showed a decline in morning trading, and US stocks fell in early trading yesterday. The dollar also fell as markets showed some recovery, reviving investors' appetite for riskier assets, but many market participants remain unconvinced that the market has gone through the "worst" as US equity earnings continue to rise ahead of today's US consumer price data (Wednesday), as concerns over inflation may be renewed.

"I think the stock market turmoil will continue until Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell's testimony to Congress on Feb. 28; the markets will try to test it until you know how to think," a US banker told Reuters. The dollar index fell 0.3 per cent to 89.923, moving away from a half-month high of 90.569 on Thursday. The euro traded at $ 1.2290, recovering from last week's low of $ 1.2206, but remains below its 3-year high of $ 1.2538 on January 25, more than two years ago.

The pound rose to $ 1.3846 from Friday's low of $ 1.3764. Despite doubts about secession from the European Union, the pound has improved thanks to growing expectations that the Bank of England will raise interest rates to curb inflation. Initially, the rise in risk appetite contributed to the rise of the dollar against the yen, but the optimism quickly dissipated after traders saw Japanese stocks unable to maintain their big gains in the morning.

The dollar fell more than 0.5 percent to 108.01 yen after the Nikkei lost 1.4 percent on the day, dropping 0.7 percent to a four-month closing low. US 10-year bond yields hit a 4-year high of 2.902 per cent, while yields on 30-year bonds rose to an 11-month high of 3.199 per cent. On the other hand, gold prices hit their highest levels in about a week yesterday (Tuesday), supported by the decline of the dollar. By 07:31 GMT, the spot price of gold was up 0.4 per cent to $ 1327.81 an ounce.

Earlier, the metal hit its highest since Feb. 7 at $ 1328.03. The yellow metal rose 0.5 percent on Monday, its biggest single-day gain in more than a week. US gold futures rose 0.3 percent to $ 1,330 an ounce. "We suspect that gold has largely separated from stocks most of last week, instead tracking the dollar's impact higher and lower," Edward Mayer, analyst at Intel FC Stone, told Reuters.

Silver rose 0.4 percent in spot trade to $ 16.61 an ounce, platinum rose 0.1 percent to $ 971.5 an ounce, while palladium dropped 0.3 percent to $ 981.45 an ounce.   LINK

Tebow: @blackgold go for it then sell
 
tman23: International donors pledged $30 billion to help the reconstruction of Iraq in the post-Islamic State (IS) era. The funds came after a three-day international conference held in Kuwait. Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Kuwait and Turkey have promised the largest offers in loans and investments to Iraq.
 
However, the Iraqi government had initially asked for $88.2 billion to reconstruct the vast areas ravaged by the four-year war against the Islamic State.
 
However, Ibrahim al-Jaafari, Iraq's foreign minister, said that the funds fall short of what is needed. The United States had already made it clear that it wouldn’t make any contributions as it has already spend billions in training and supporting the government and army of Iraq.
 
 Kuwaiti lawmaker Safa al-Hashem said earlier this week that billions of dollars should not be given to the “corrupt” government of Iraq which has already failed in providing basic services to its people.
 
sandyf: @BREW: @sandyf never said it does not lead to the present, i just ask, why bring the bs up, to me it has j** ** - 
 
I have been in this since 2004 and around 2010/2011 it all headed off in a different direction. In 2012 I had a back problem and was disabled for some time and I spent a great deal of time researching the various aspects of the IQD saga.
 
 You may consider the history on supposed link between the RV/GCR and the Global Collateral Accounts to be of little interest but those that are relatively new and not aware should be free to make up their own minds.
 
 I am not advocating any credibility in this direction but if you think that Niel Keenan is a thing of the past, you should check out his website. A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE GLOBAL COLLATERAL ACCOUNTS ANDtman23: Baghdad Government Disappointed in Kuwait, Received $30 Billion Only .....What a slap in the face when you fight terrorism for the whole world and they only pledge 30 billion.......LMAO

sandyf: There is a great deal of info on this topic and difficult to dismiss out of hand, one must keep an open mind. "Many authors hold the view the major part of gold was transferred from China in 1938 at the time it was occupied by Japan.

There was a risk the gold, that belonged to a few Guomindang top leaders, would be captured. The Federal Reserve System lent a helping hand to the Chinese comrades and offered good terms of storing the metal.

As the «guerillas» say the very same year (1938) seven ships left China for the USA with the Dragon Family’s gold on board. Thus, the gold was transferred and deposited by private owners in a half voluntary, half compulsory way, guaranteeing stable 4% annual income.

The gold is recorded in the Global Collateral Combined Accounts. But these accounts are not legal, they are part of parallel financial system, its existence is known by very few."

tman23: Kuwaiti lawmaker Safa al-Hashem said earlier this week that billions of dollars should not be given to the “corrupt” government of Iraq ....... YOU KNOW WHAT THAT MEANS.....

THEY SECRETLY PASSED THE BUDGET AND ARE INTERNATIONAL......HELLO ARTICLE 8 !!! LOL....BREAKING NEWS FROM IRAQI TV...... KUWAIT CONFERENCE A

$10 million (exchanged amount) and above call the 800 # for an appointment with a wealth manager.

CALCULATION OF THE AMOUNT IS BASED ON EXCHANGE RATES:

EX: You have 8 million Dong and the rate is $1.50 then you are in the over $10 million category. . . .

Also, you can lump all of your currencies together when calculating your amount. EX: You have 5 million Dong at $1.50 exchange rate and 2 million Dinar at a $4.00 exchange rate. Your total exchanged amount would come to over $10 million so you can call for an appointment.

If you don’t have an account at the bank you go to they will open one for you.

Here is the crazy part about all of that – it doesn’t make sense to me. They are inviting chaos and problems and telling you guys don’t buy into it. Told military reserve units have been put on standby just in case there is a problem. Put on standby Monday night. . . based on something they did to create the problem.

They think there are less than a million people out there with Dinar. I know four years ago it was 6 million with dinar and I saying there are 7 -8 million right now. And then most people have given others dinar. . . Problem is going to be everybody walking in and see those lines at the teller . . . cars in the parking lot . . . lining up at the bank at 6 am in the morning so they can be first.

Ray: Who is “they” just for clarification?

Tony: They supposedly are the younger bank executives who have come on recently and want to change procedures. Judge's email/phone:  ksd_murguia_chambers@ksd.uscourts.gov  913-735-2340 DA's email/phone:  Scott.Rask@usdoj.gov   913-551-6730  If each one of those 8 million holders gave just 3 people dinar now we are talking about 24 million people with dinar. . . tripled the number of people not just making appointments but are walking into that line on a first come, first served basis.

Everybody will get paid sooner or later. Cause any conflict it will take that much longer to get paid.

Dong low will be $1.47. Told all the rates were off by .50.

This coming Monday is a Federal holiday.

Ray: Since the military or national guard is being put on standby so those guys planning on buses better make a change of plans! (lots of laughter).

CURRENT WINDOW: Tony: I think it’s going to happen over the weekend based on all the information we have and because it makes sense to happen over the weekend.

Tony: Nobody knows exactly what moment in time it’s going to happen. We do know it’s going to happen. Sooner rather than later.

IRAQ: Tony on Kuwait Conference: $60 billion pledged already. . . They announced to the investors yesterday, this is the rate.

Budget:
Supposed to be agreed on several times. Supposed to be in the Gazette but not seen yet. Looking now to the Saturday issue of the Gazette. Tony: People laying this out say they don’t care what the budget does. We are getting this going and the RV will go through regardless. Other people say they don’t see it happening without the budget. People are mad at Abadi because he will not give the Kurd’s’ the 17% they have been getting for years. IMF and US telling Iraq to get the budget done. Now saying they’ve worked out a deal at 14% with another side offer in there but we are not seeing it in the Gazette. This morning saying it’s all smoke and mirrors, that the budget is done. They don’t want you to know what is going on so they can just put it out there. Nobody knows exactly what moment in time it’s going to happen. We do know it’s going to happen. Sooner rather than later.


Lower Denom’s: No mention of lower denom’s status

TV / Mosques: No reports of what is being broadcast or announced in the mosques

INTERNATIONAL:

IMF: Has the list of people to receive the 800 numbers. Tony: The IMF sent it out to the 16 regions and that’s what they anticipated it happening Monday night Tuesday morning. They said, “get it done now” which is why we don’t have to wait on the budget or anything else. That’s why it should have gone and it didn’t. That was the third request. The bank said they could not let it go until the US Treasury authorized it.

World Bank Guaranteeing Iraq Investment Tony: Because the people still don’t have full confidence in Iraq . . . because of what is going on with their budget, Kurdistan and Maliki. . . Somebody had to give the investors the confidence to come and do it.

Kuwait Conference: $60 billion pledged already. . .Tony: They announced to the investors yesterday, what the rate is going to be and when they could look for it.

Currencies: ZIM: Tony: Go with the .11 to .22. If anything more than that just be ecstatic.

Dong: Tony: We got from Treasury person, $1.95 -$4 something. Somebody else said $1.47 more likely to happen. No rates showing at the banks now.

UNITED STATES:

US on Gold standard? Tony: Our currency is our currency and backed by US. Every country involved in this is Basel III certified or they will not be involved.

Banks: Five different times the banks expected it to go and it did not. Bank memo said they were upgrading the system for the Tony: umpteenth time for making changes for foreign currency. And they were hours away from completing that last night. I said surely something else. The system has been upgraded a million times already. But that’s what they were telling their people cause they had already told them it was going to happen.

Tier Two Interest Rates: Tony: The average banker is not going to know about it. A monthly rate instead of a yearly rate like everybody else. 1-4% a week. Those are platforms you have to be invited into. Qualify and invited. Donald Trump is a billionaire . . . he tried to buy an NFL team. He had the money but he did not have an invitation. . . Just because you have the money you still have to have the invitation. Or the good old boy network – because that is what it is – somebody to sponsor you into that. The bank will look at it and decide if they want you. It’s their choice. If you have enough money they will offer you a pre-trial – another opportunity to qualify. It’s a two year process to see if you even qualify and once you pass that then they will say, Okay. Very few people are going to do it.

Military Bases: Every base will exchange when the time comes.

Tax Treaty: Ray reported yesterday the tax treaty was signed yesterday by the G20. Tony: We were told not to mention the name of it. For some reason it is still classified.

800 #’s: Tony and Ray were waiting on them and did not receive them. Tony: Now discussing the banks have their own websites where they will post the 800’s. That’s the information we are waiting on today.

Tax Attorney: Ray: I don’t think you need a tax attorney until you get into a tax problem. . . FYI to have a tax professional. Tony: We know it’s going to happen. I’d already be asking that person question. Find out before you go to your appointment.

Groups who have contracts with China – there contract is a purchase agreement and not an exchange. There tax is written in at 11%.

To get TNT Texts: Send a text message to 40404. The message should say exactly: FOLLOW THE@THE_TNT_TEAM

EXCHANGING:
Ray: . . .when exchanging remember “lost opportunity.” . . . the difference .10 can make. You exchange . . . and then the rate goes up . . .


Requesting an Appointment: Tony: They need to ask you how much of each currency you have. Regardless of what you have you can exchange whatever you want of a million or below. At your appointment you can do half then and half next week, next month or whatever. . . Thirty minutes per appointment to exchange.

VERIFICATION: Make sure before you leave the bank it has been accepted as verified so when you leave they cannot come back a few days later and say your currency was not valid.

ZIM Information:

At a .10 rate a 100 trillion note will exchange out at $10 million.

Basic ZIM information given on TNT calls is compiled at the “ZIM 101 Comprehensive” thread at:

Q & A: TNT Forum
– Under $1 million go to any WF or one that does foreign currency? Ray: Pick one that does foreign currency.
– Bank of London still the best insurance to guard against default or bank failure? Tony: You’ll need to ask the bank or financial institution. . . how best to protect it.
– Can mother and son go at the same time or make separate appointments? Tony: I think separate.

Q & A: Callers – I’m going to exchange at two different banks in two different states and then talk to a wealth manager and I don’t want to exchange for less for the bulk of it than I did at the first bank. Tony: Your going to get whatever the rate is that day. . . If your at BOA on Monday in Florida and then go to BOA later they can look at your account. If your at a different bank they are not going to know (what rate you exchanged at) as banks don’t share information like that.
– How can we protect ourselves against the bank coming back to us and saying the currency was not valid? Tony: I don’t see that going on – them saying your currency was phony. Right there at the bank during the exchange they either agree with you or put it on hold right then. They are supposed to take your currency – two of them, put it in a plastic bag and sign off on it so it’s known that it is your currency.
– How long do you think we should wait to exchange? Tony: There is no answer to the question. It is when you feel comfortable. They don’t want the rate to go up more than 5% a day. Not go over that. They have the authority to stop that. They don’t want it to fall down more than 5% a day either. They have the authority to stop that. Just recently said they would like to see it go to $8 and then down. They want all the internet people to get in and out as fast as possible and not wait for the rate to go up. We can’t tell you 3 days, 5 days, 8 days and then go through it. Your going to have to pay attention on Forex. If they don’t know how to do that they can call the banks. When you call your bank find out how often you change your exchange rates and what time of day. . . Here’s the bad part, depending on how much you have, your appointment could be 7 -8 days away behind everybody else who went in there and made their appointments.

CLOSING STATEMENTS:

Verbatim: Tony: Happy Valentine’s day to all the ladies. Hope you enjoy your day. To all the guys, “go do your job.” You know what your supposed to do. And vice versa. All the news has been good. Probably going to get an update in a little bit. Ray will do what he does – put it in the room so you guys get it. We are closer than ever every day. I am not looking for it tonight. So enjoy your Valentine’s Day. I’m not on standby for it. Haven’t heard anything like that. Friday afternoon – Sunday afternoon. Somewhere between Friday and Sunday makes the most sense to me. Monday is a holiday. It could go into that. We will let you know as soon as we know. We are there.

The conference is over. While we were talking Abadi is back in Iraq. They got their pledge. They know how much they are going to get. They know when they are going to get it, so all they have to do is solve whatever there is to solve. Whether it is the budget or the system saying let it go. We are right there so be aware. . I will tell you that. Even though it is Valentine’s Day, watch your phones. Watch your phones, watch twitter and let’s see what happens. Enjoy your Valentine’s Day.

Ray: All right everyone. Keep believing. We do! (played “I Believe.”)

Restored Republic via a GCR Update as of Feb. 15 2018

Compiled 12:01 am EDT 15 Feb. 2018 by Judy Byington

Judy Note: Even though there has been an intel blackout since last Friday, the banks could likely release the 800#s sometime this week. A few tidbits of what we have found out so far:

1. The banks had meetings on Sat. Feb. 10 and Sun. Feb. 11 where they were told all was completed and there was no more need to meet together. The new US Treasury had given the banks authority to release the 800#s.

2. All Native American Tribes were paid out on Tues. Feb. 12.

3. Iraq’s Gazette would come out Wed. Feb. 14 and Sat. Feb. 17 and at that time should show the new Dinar rate - which would officially make the Iraqi Dinar international. (TNT reports Dinar around $4, Dong $1.49 and a 100 trillion Zim Note would exchange for $10 million).

4. On Wed. night Feb. 14 at midnight EST Russia was scheduled to make the switch from the Swift System to the new Cips Fentech System for wires bank transfer.

5. Zimbabwe had until Wed. Feb. 28 to begin redemptions of historic bonds (ZIM notes).

************

A. Feb. 14 2018 TNT Call

1. This week the new currency rates came out during the Kuwait Conference as (Told all rates were off by $.50):

Dong:

International rate $1.49, $1.95 to $4

Dinar:

International rate around $4.00+
In-country rate: $3.21, $3.29, $3.71

Zim:

$.10 to $.22
(At $.10 a 100 Trillion Zim Note/Bond would exchange for $10 million)

2. On Mon. night Feb. 12 Bank personnel were put on standby.

3. On Mon. Feb. 12 bank tellers were told they would be exchanging for the next couple of weeks.

4. Today Feb. 14 personnel were being called into Exchange Centers. Exchange Center personnel were scrambling and adjusting work schedules for this week.

5. Today Feb. 14 Tony was expecting an update on how the 800#s would be given out.

6. Tony feels that it made sense to have the 800#s come out just prior to the weekend and that exchanges would begin this weekend, especially since next Mon. Feb. 26 was a federal holiday.

7. Military personnel could exchange at a military base.

8. After the 800 numbers were released and if you had:

a. 1 million and below - you would go to a bank and exchange with a designated teller who would offer you the screen rates. If you wanted a higher rate you would not exchange with the teller, but would ask for an appointment with a Private Banker. If you did exchange with the teller there was a possibility that you could ask for $10,000 in cash and the rest would be put on a 48 hour hold (in order to verify the currency).

b. 1 million to 10 million - you would go to, or call a bank and on a first come, first served basis, you would be given an appointment to exchange with a Private Banker. You could take the screen rate, or ask for and negotiate for a higher rate.

c. 10 million and above (plus Zim holders) - you would call an 800 number for your appointment with a Wealth Manager. You could take the screen rate, or ask for and negotiate for a higher rate.

B. Feb. 14 2018 11:32 pm EST  "Banker Timing"  The Office of POOFness - 2.14.18

We had funds of $200,000 wired to us today Feb. 14 from the bank that would take a while to arrive in our account - maybe 3 or four days.

************

C. Feb. 14 2018 11:30 pm EST: Anna Von Reitz: Manna World Holding Trust

1. The "Manna World Holdings Trust" was yet another foul fantasy construction made out of thin air.

2. They claimed that they were given title to you and your labor and they are now generously giving "you" and your assets back to the bankrupt federal corporation.

3. Kim Goguen, the mastermind behind this maneuver, was named "Trustee" by a Draco "Lord of the Admiralty" and was in fact just a glorified bank terminal operator given the codes and downloads into the DTC and Federal Reserve System - which was bankrupt and null and void.

These are the financial contributions of each country to the Kuwait Conference for the reconstruction of Iraq


Wednesday, 14 February 2018

Approximately $ 30 billion is the volume of financial pledges announced by countries and international and regional organizations participating in the Kuwait Reconstruction Conference.

These amounts did not exceed half the need of Iraq, which government officials estimated more than $ 88 billion for the reconstruction of cities destroyed by the war with a sympathetic organization.

The ranking of the most prominent countries and organizations that contributed amounts in the reconstruction of Iraq, whether in the form of loans or grants or investment opportunities as follows:

United States : US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson during his participation in the Kuwait conference signed an agreement between the US Trade Bank and Iraq to grant Baghdad loans of about three billion dollars.

Turkey : Turkey will allocate five billion dollars to Iraq in the form of loans and investments, Turkish Foreign Minister Mouloud Zhaoshoglu said on Tuesday.

KUWAIT : Kuwait will provide Iraq with $ 1 billion in loans and invest $ 1 billion to help rebuild the country, Kuwait's ruler Sheikh Sabah al-Ahmad al-Jaber al-Sabah said.

Saudi Arabia : The volume of Saudi pledges billion dollars for investment projects in Iraq, and an additional 500 million dollars to support Iraqi exports.

Gulf states : Qatar has announced the allocation of a package of loans and investments to Iraq worth one billion dollars, while the United Arab Emirates to provide 500 million dollars.

Britain : $ 1 billion in export credit over 10 years

Germany : 350 million euros in aid to Iraq in 2018
