VANCOUVER (Silver Gold Bull) -- Regular readers know that I have very little tolerance for bankers talking out of both sides of their mouths. So when I saw yet another piece of blatant banker double-talk from Deutsche Bank (DB), I wasn't about to let it pass without comment.In
How could the bankers be sure QE would cause "inflation," which means exactly the same thing as their paper currencies declining in value? Because none other than Ben Bernanke has based his entire career on the premise that printing currency must cause the value of that currency to go down in value. Bernanke's monetary premise (which earned him the chairman's job at the Federal Reserve) was simple. He asserted that a central bank could always create inflation, ultimately by asserting the very same argument I made above: That by diluting our currencies (with extreme money printing) that the value of those currencies must decline. Yet, here we are a mere 3 ½ years later and now the same bankers are singing a precisely opposite song. Maybe printing more money won't cause the value of these currencies to decline, but will cause them to increase instead? Thus what has clearly transpired in the time since QE1 was launched and QE3 is now being openly discussed is that the bankers themselves have proclaimed (by direct, logical implication) that their own paper currencies are now worthless. The only other possible implication is that Bernanke was completely and absolutely wrong with his life's work: That currency dilution (for some totally unknown reason) does not cause a decline in value in the bankers' paper. However, this conclusion is even more problematic than the first. To begin with, if these elite Western bankers have suddenly "discovered" that currency dilution does not cause the value of currencies to decline, then why hasn't Bernanke been fired already? Obviously you can't have the world's most important central bank being led by someone with a totally backwards understanding of the effects of currency dilution. Beyond that, we have the bankers' past rhetoric. They heartily congratulated each other for the "success" of QE1 in creating inflation. Are all these bankers amnesiacs or simply liars? The fact remains that throughout our financial history until a few years ago it was an unquestioned premise of the West's most senior, respected bankers that currency dilution must always cause the value of a currency to decline.
Now, somewhere in the past 2 ½ years (according to the bankers themselves) something has changed, and diluting these paper currencies (supposedly) does not cause their value to automatically decline. What has changed in that period of time? We entered a realm of permanent near-zero interest rates. In another
commentary, I demonstrated how the currency of any/every economy with an official 0% interest rate must be worthless. In other words, when the bankers themselves now directly imply that their own paper currencies are worthless, they are absolutely correct. The more interesting point is, what could have caused these bankers to flip-flop in such a blatant manner? The answer to that question is simple: The bankers want to print more money. They always want to print more money. As Jim Rogers recently observed regarding Bernanke, "He only knows one thing, and that's what he's going to do." The problem for these bankers as they hover over their printing presses is that this time they can't present us with the excuse of "creating inflation" as a pretext for more money printing. The global economy is still struggling to cope with all the inflation produced by their previous, reckless money printing. Inflation is already a double-digit plague in the global economy, despite the fraudulent/irrelevant "inflation" statistics foisted upon us by our dishonest governments. So how could the bankers ever justify more money printing in a world already drowning in inflation if that money printing would/will cause even more inflation? Obviously they can't. So at the end of 2008 we had the bankers unanimously telling us that "QE must cause inflation," and now in 2012 we have the same bankers telling us the third round of QE might not cause any inflation at all. Readers have two (rational) choices as to how they choose to interpret this bankster flip-flopping. They can choose to interpret this as the bankers (finally) acknowledging that the fraudulent paper currencies they are flogging are already totally worthless. Or, they can conclude that all these bankers are lying to us about the effects of more money printing because they simply don't care about the horrific consequences that inflation wreaks upon ordinary people, especially senior citizens.
Either way, we can make several definitive conclusions about the Western banking cabal, with our central banks at its heart. All these bankers are malevolent, dishonest and utterly incompetent. They have relentlessly lied to us and are doing so again today. They have taken all of our economies to the brink of total destruction (and past that point for Greece). As they demonstrate with their latest lies, they have absolutely no consideration for the tremendous harm they continue to cause through their serial money-printing. Precious metals remain our only haven from the lies and monetary depravity of these bankers. They are the only form of "money" that cannot be stolen or destroyed through the
serial crimes of the worst financial criminals in the history of our species. This commentary comes from an independent investor or market observer as part of TheStreet guest contributor program.
