Économie mondiale / Troubles et crash
Certains dans les milieux financiers et dans la sphère politique voudraient bien nous réassurer que la crise financière est déjà en train de se calmer et que le pire est déjà passé. Mais à la lumière de ce qu'est réellement notre système bancaire et financier, il est très improbable qu'on soit déjà sorti du bois. Les gros joueurs font tout pour faire en sorte que le crash soit graduel pour ne pas effrayer le petit peuple, qui ferait juste comme ce qui est arrivé en 1907, 1929 et la semaine passé en Angleterre: vider les banques de leurs épargnes et retirer leurs investissements dans le stock market, ce qui ferait en sorte que l'économie s'écroulerait quasi instantanément, ruinant les très riches aussi qui veulent juste tirer leur épingle du jeu avant nous. Il y a trop de petits joureurs qui diluent leur marge de profit, alors comme ils l'ont fait à plusieurs reprises dans le passé, les banquiers et ultra-riches font volontairement crasher le marché pour purger le "système". Et purge, il y a.
L'argent ne disparait pas, il est transféré de nos poches vers celles des quelques riches qui possèdent déjà la planète, vers des paradis fiscaux, pendant qu'ils nous accusent de travailler au noir et d'être paresseux. N'oubliez pas: les banquiers privés impriment l'argent à partir de rien, ils le créent litéralement, l'impriment à la tonne et ainsi créent l'inflation et la dévaluation de la monnaie de papier. Enfin... informez-vous.

“The new capitalist gods must love the poor – they are making so many more of them.” Bill Bonner, “The Daily Reckoning”“The hope of every central bank is that the real problem can be kept from public view. The truth is that the public---even professionals on Wall Street---have no clue what the real problem is. They know it has something to do with derivatives, but none of them realize that it’s more than a $20 trillion mountain of unfunded, unregulated paper that has just been discovered to not have a market and, therefore, no real value… When the dollar realizes the seriousness of the situation---be that now or sometime soon---the bottom will drop out.” Jim Sinclair, Investment analyst
What the price of gold is telling us by Ron Paul
The financial press, and even the network news shows, have begun reporting the price of gold regularly. For twenty years, between 1980 and 2000, the price of gold was rarely mentioned. There was little interest, and the price was either falling or remaining steady.
Since 2001 however, interest in gold has soared along with its price. With the price now over $600 an ounce, a lot more people are becoming interested in gold as an investment and an economic indicator. Much can be learned by understanding what the rising dollar price of gold means.The rise in gold prices from $250 per ounce in 2001 to over $600 today has drawn investors and speculators into the precious metals market.
Beginning in March, though planned before Bernanke arrived at the Fed, the central bank discontinued compiling and reporting the monetary aggregate known as M3. M3 is the best description of how quickly the Fed is creating new money and credit. Common sense tells us that a government central bank creating new money out of thin air depreciates the value of each dollar in circulation. Yet this report is no longer available to us and Congress makes no demands to receive it.
A soaring gold price is a vote of “no confidence” in the central bank and the dollar. This certainly was the case in 1979 and 1980. Today, gold prices reflect a growing restlessness with the increasing money supply, our budgetary and trade deficits, our unfunded liabilities, and the inability of Congress and the administration to reign in runaway spending.

The bottom line is that you make money by making products. You cannot make money by taking other money and moving it back and forth with great rapidity, although a large percentage of Americans seem to think they can. With gamesmanship, you can look good for a short while trying to make money by shaking money back and forth, but in the end, if you have no products to sell, the money must and will run out.

New Mortgage Foreclosures Set Record
Some experts -- and hedge fund investors who have made big bets that the mortgage crisis will worsen -- are saying that's exactly what will happen. Some bond funds that invest in riskier short-term debt already have been whacked by soaring default rates on bonds backed by subprime loans made to borrowers with weak credit.
About 80 percent of debt in bonds backed by subprime loans is rated triple-A, the same rating on virtually risk-free U.S. Treasury bonds, experts say.
Britons have racked up so much debt on loans and credit cards that the total borrowed now exceeds the entire value of the economy, new research shows today.

A hedge fund is a private investment fund charging a performance fee and typically open to only a very limited range of qualified investors. In the
A hedge fund's activities are limited only by the contracts governing the particular fund, so they can follow complex investment strategies, being long or short assets and entering into futures, swaps and other derivative contracts. They often hedge their investments against adverse moves in equity and other markets, because a common objective is to generate returns that are not closely correlated to those of the broader financial markets.
In most countries hedge funds are prohibited from marketing to non-accredited investors, unlike regulated retail investment funds such as mutual funds and pension funds. As hedge funds are essentially a private pool of managed assets, and as their public access is commonly restricted by the government, they have little to no incentive to release their private information to the public.
