Σε πλήρη εξέλιξη το «σχέδιο κολυμπήθρα» που στοχεύει να ξεπλύνει τα ανομήματα του πολιτικού και οικονομικού συστήματος – Όταν η διαδικασία ολοκληρωθεί θα έχουν αλλάξει όλα στην Ελλάδα προς το χειρότερο – Η νέα διαπλοκή θα ελέγχει τα πάντα

Σε πλήρη εξέλιξη βρίσκεται το «σχέδιο κολυμπήθρα» το σχέδιο εξαγνισμού και καθαγιασμού των ανομημάτων του πολιτικού και οικονομικού συστήματος.
Το κείμενο που θα διαβάσετε αποτελεί προϊόν συγκέντρωσης στοιχείων από πηγές που ασκούν εξουσία στον τόπο σε πολιτικό και οικονομικό επίπεδο.
Το κείμενο αυτό δεν στηρίζεται σε εικασίες αλλά σε ένα σχέδιο που έχει εκπονηθεί εις βάρος της κοινωνίας.
Το σχέδιο κολυμπήθρα δημιουργήθηκε με ένα βασικό στόχο, τον στόχο να ξεπλύνει τα ανομήματα του πολιτικού και οικονομικού συστήματος της Ελλάδος.
Σε αντίθεση με αυτό που πιστεύουν πολλοί τα οικονομικά και πολιτικά συστήματα απόλυτα διαπλεκόμενα έχουν ακόμη εξουσία στην Ελλάδα.
Παραδόξως πολλοί πιστεύουν ότι η Αριστερά ο ΣΥΡΙΖΑ είναι ένα ανισυστημικό κόμμα που θέλει να χτυπήσει τα παραδοσιακά οικονομικά τζάκια το παραδοσιακό κατεστημένο.
Ο ΣΥΡΙΖΑ έχει καταστεί ένα αυστηρά συστημικό κόμμα το οποίο συναλλάσσεται με την Goldman Sachs, δεν ήταν τυχαία η συνάντηση με στελέχη του ΣΥΡΙΖΑ όπως και με τους Αμερικανούς οι οποίοι δεν βλέπουν με φοβικά σύνδρομα την ελληνική νεοαριστερά δηλαδή τον ΣΥΡΙΖΑ.
Την ίδια στιγμή η Χρυσή Αυγή αποτελεί στα μάτια της κοινωνίας την λαϊκή αντίδραση αλλά δεν είναι τίποτε άλλο από δημιούργημα των μυστικών υπηρεσιών και της αστυνομίας που θέλει να δημιουργήσει ένα νέο πολιτικό πόλο ως αντιστάθμισμα της ανόδου της Αριστεράς.

Διαδικασίες ελέγχου με αντικείμενο τη Gazprom ξεκινά η Κομισιόν

Διαδικασίες ελέγχου με αντικείμενο το ρωσικό γιγαντιαίο όμιλο φυσικού αερίου Gazprom ξεκίνησε η Κομισιόν, διατηρώντας υποψίες «παρεμποδίζει τον ανταγωνισμό στις αγορές φυσικού αερίου στην Κεντρική και Ανατολική Ευρώπη», όπως αναφέρει.

Συγκεκριμένα, η Ευρωπαϊκή Επιτροπή έχει υποψίες κυρίως για την Gazprom ότι «παρεμπόδισε τη διαφοροποίηση του εφοδιασμού με φυσικό αέριο» σε αυτές τις χώρες «και επιβάλλει στους πελάτες της αδικαιολόγητες τιμές φυσικού αερίου συνδέοντάς τις με την τιμή του πετρελαίου».

EU Launches Antirust Case Against Natural Gas Giant Gazpromia

When it comes to who controls Europe, the answer is simple – hint: it is not Goldman Sachs via its puppets Mario Monti or Mario Draghi. Nor is it Angela Merkel. No – the entity in charge of the continent of 300+ million is the nation-corporation known as Gazpromia, which also happens to be is the holding company of the new and somewhat improved USSR, aka Russia. Why? Because if Gazpromia decided to play the vengeful god role it is known to embrace now and then, it could simply shut down the gas pipeline to Europe and millions of people would realize that heating in deep subzero temperatures is far, far more important than having a (un)stable currency or wheelbarrows full of money. As such, it is always better to let sleeping gods lie. Oddly enough, Europe decided to not do that, and moments ago the WSJ and BBG reported that the EU has decided to bite the hand that warms it and has launched an antrust case against Gazprom.

  • EU OPENS ANTITRUST CASE AGAINST GAZPROM
  • GAZPROM SUSPECTED BY EU OF HINDERING COMPETITION IN GAS MARKETS
  • GAZPROM MAY BE ABUSING DOMINANCE IN UPSTREAM GAS SUPPLY MARKETS
  • GAZPROM MAY HAVE PREVENTED GAS SUPPLY DIVERSIFICATION, EU SAYS
  • GAZPROM MAY HAVE UNFAIRLY LINKED PRICE OF GAS TO OIL PRICES

Did Gazprom do any/all of this? Of course: monopolists can do anything they want. Keyword being monopolists. As a result those whose markets Gazprom supplied with all critical natural gas, which in Europe is everyone, must take it like it, or else. Because when it comes to threats, whereas Mario Draghi’s are absolutely hollow, and are merely perfected in the Goldman Sachs school of «what to do when you are not being taken seriously» (as practiced by that other Goldmanite Hank Paulson in the US 4 years ago), those from Gazprom, should the company decided to retaliate will mean the European winter will be not only depressionary, but very, very cold. And Europe may have just made sure of not only the former, but also the latter.

From that other monpoly, this time of infinite central planning complexity and endless bureacuracy – the EU

Antitrust: Commission opens proceedings against Gazprom

The European Commission has opened formal proceedings to investigate whether Gazprom, the Russian producer and supplier of natural gas, might be hindering competition in Central and Eastern European gas markets, in breach of EU antitrust rules. An opening of proceedings does not prejudge the outcome of the investigation; it only means that the Commission will treat the case as a matter of priority.

The Commission has concerns that Gazprom may be abusing its dominant market position in upstream gas supply markets in Central and Eastern European Member States, in breach of Article 102 of the Treaty on the Functioning of the European Union.

The Commission is investigating three suspected anti-competitive practices in Central and Eastern Europe. First, Gazprom may have divided gas markets by hindering the free flow of gas across Member States. Second, Gazprom may have prevented the diversification of supply of gas. Finally, Gazprom may have imposed unfair prices on its customers by linking the price of gas to oil prices.

Such behaviour, if established, may constitute a restriction of competition and lead to higher prices and deterioration of security of supply. Ultimately, such behaviour would harm EU consumers.

In September 2011, the Commission carried out inspections at the premises of gas companies in several Member States (see MEMO/11/641).

Background

Article 102 TFEU prohibits the abuse of a dominant position which may affect trade between Member States. The implementation of this provision is defined in the Antitrust Regulation (Council Regulation No 1/2003), which can be applied by the Commission and by the national competition authorities of EU Member States.

Article 11(6) of the Antitrust Regulation provides that the initiation of proceedings by the Commission relieves the competition authorities of the Member States of their competence to also apply EU competition rules to the practices concerned. Article 16(1) of the same Regulation provides that national courts must avoid giving decisions which would conflict with a decision contemplated by the Commission in proceedings it has initiated.

The Commission has informed Gazprom and the competition authorities of the Member States that it has opened proceedings in this case.

There is no legal deadline to complete inquiries into anti-competitive conduct. The duration of an antitrust investigation depends on a number of factors, including the complexity of the case, the extent to which the undertaking concerned cooperates with the Commission and the exercise of the rights of defence.

More information on this investigation will be available in the Commission’s public case register under the case number 39816.

EU Ombudsman To Probe Mario Draghi’s Conflicts Of Interest

First some German dares to suggest Mario Draghi’s ECB should be sued for getting a «bigger than god complex», and now the EU’s ombudsman has the temerity to suggest Mario Draghi may have conflicts of interest due to his previous jobs, most notably at Goldman Sachs, a topic beaten to death on these pages… and various other factors.  From Spiegel: «As soon as you took office, there were discussions about his past in the U.S. investment bank Goldman Sachs – now has Mario Draghi, head of the European Central Bank, and problems with the EU ombudsman. It’s about the membership of an influential banking lobby organization.» What are the «other factors»: well, one is Draghi’s presence in the Group of 30 which as we have explained previously, is the real behind the scenes central planning group which decides the fate and future of the world (an extended write up here). The other factor? Mario’s son Giacomo, who just happens to work as an interest rate trader at Morgan Stanley London.

Courtesy of LinkedIn.

A Vice President interest rate trader? In London? When his father is the one man who singlehandedly sets interest rats? No conflict of interest there at all…

One thing is certain: unlike various hedge funds, most recently virtually every major fund in Geneva, and even Brevan Howard, Morgan Stanley will never be implicated in Lieborgate and rate manipulation.

Ever.

After Creating Dollar Exclusion Zones In Asia And South America, China Set To Corner Africa Next | ZeroHedge

Posted by satyrikon στο Ιουλίου 15, 2012

National emblem of the People's Republic of China

By now it really, really should be obvious. While the insolvent «developed world» is furiously fighting over who gets to pay the bill for 30 years of unsustainable debt accumulation and how to pretend that the modern ‘crony capitalist for some and communist for others’ system isn’t one flap of a butterfly’s wings away from full on collapse mode, China is slowly taking over the world’s real assets. As a reminder: here is a smattering of our headlines on the topic from the last year: «»World’s Second (China) And Third Largest (Japan) Economies To Bypass Dollar, Engage In Direct Currency Trade», «China, Russia Drop Dollar In Bilateral Trade», «China And Iran To Bypass Dollar, Plan Oil Barter System», «India and Japan sign new $15bn currency swap agreement», «Iran, Russia Replace Dollar With Rial, Ruble in Trade, Fars Says», «India Joins Asian Dollar Exclusion Zone, Will Transact With Iran In Rupees», ‘The USD Trap Is Closing: Dollar Exclusion Zone Crosses The Pacific As Brazil Signs China Currency Swap», and finally, «Chile Is Latest Country To Launch Renminbi Swaps And Settlement», we now get the inevitable: «Central bank pledges financial push in Africa.» To summarize: first Asia, next Latin America, and now Africa.

Yep: the Yuan may not be the reserve currency by default, but at this
rate China will have bilateral, read USD-bypassing relations, with all
countries in Asia, South America and shortly Africa (where none other
than Goldman Sachs has been pushing harder than anyone). Once the entire
world is trading in CNY, it will be merely a matter of flipping the
switch and all those fancy three-letter economic theories that explain
why the uber-welfare state works just becayse the US can print an infinity+1 in debt, will all suddenly find themselves completely and totally bidless.

From China Daily:

China is to promote the yuan’s use in settling trade and
investment with Africa, and encourage the more active development of
Chinese financial institutions across the continent, a senior central
bank official said on Friday.

 

Li Dongrong, assistant governor of the People’s Bank of China, said
Africa has the capability of becoming a new hub of international capital
flow, and the yuan’s use there should be further improved in accordance
with rising demand for the currency there.

 

«We will continue to encourage domestic financial institutions to
increase their presence and business across the continent,» Li told
delegates at the Forum on China-Africa Financial Cooperation in Beijing,
adding that the cooperation potential between the two sides is huge, as
Africa’s economy continues to take off.

 

According to Li, yuan-denominated settlement between China and some
African countries has already started, with 4.3 billion yuan ($156.5
million) worth of settlement made with South Africa and 2.3 trillion
yuan with Mauritius, for example.

 

The popularity of using the yuan has been increasing in Africa, and
more central banks are considering including the currency in their
reserve portfolios, reported various governors of African central banks
at the forum.

For China, Ghana is not Spain. It is far, far more valuable.

Millison Narh, second deputy governor of the Bank of
Ghana, said the bank’s board of directors has decided to use the yuan as
part of its settlement and reserve currencies in January, but has yet
to finalise details with the People’s Bank of China

 

«We have looked at the currency rate risk management of the reserve
portfolio. I think the yuan has performed very well, supported by the
huge international reserves of China. It makes sense to use the yuan as
both the settlement currency and the reserve currency.»

 

More African central banks will make similar decisions, and in five
years about 20 percent of African central banks’ foreign reserve
portfolio would be yuan assets, he said.

So is Zambia:

Michael Gondwe, governor of the Bank of Zambia, added
that his country is yet to decide on including the yuan in its foreign
reserve assets, but it is expecting increased usage of it to settle
trade between China and Zambia.

 

Franklin Kennedy, a non-executive director of the African
Export-Import Bank, said he believed using the yuan on the continent was
«a natural evolvement – it has to happen», and expects more African
central banks to include the currency in their foreign reserve
portfolios.

Of course the French, who are not used to being snubbed in what is
rapidly becoming a second Congress of Berlin, only this time one without
any European participation, are not very happy:

One trade finance manager at Societe Generale (China)
Ltd, who declined to be named, said he has seen little demand among
traders to settle deals in yuan, because there is no sound channel to
make investment or purchases in yuan after holding the currency.

As for the truth:

Babacar Ndiaye, the former president of the African
Development Bank, said he saw «no reason» why traders would refuse to
settle transactions in yuan «when the trade flow increases» between
China and Africa.

 

«It is logical that very soon more and more central banks of Africa will follow Nigeria to include the yuan into their reserves,» he said

 

He added at present it is just the beginning, and central banks would
also prefer to buy treasury bonds from China in the future if possible.

But… but… if the whole world suddenly realizes that the CNY is the defacto reserve currency and «would also prefer to buy treasury bonds from China in the future if possible«… who does that leave as natural buyers for US paper? Aside from the Fed of course…

European Money Market Industry Shutting Down As Goldman Closes MM Fund, Says In «Unchartered Territory» | ZeroHedge

Update: BlackRock to restrict subscriptions into 2 Euro money funds

We were the first to bring news that overnight JPMorgan has halted investment in its European money market funds following the ECB’s decision to cut the deposit rate to 0%. Now, it is Goldman’s turn:

GOLDMAN HALTS INVESTMENTS IN EURO GOV MONEY FUND AFTER ECB CUT

GOLDMAN SAYS MARKET CONDITIONS WILL DETERMINE WHEN FUND REOPENS

GOLDMAN DECISION AFFECTS EURO GOVERNMENT LIQUID RESERVES FUND

And finally the conclusion, which is rather obvious:

  • GOLDMAN FUND MEMO: EUROPEAN MARKET IN `UNCHARTERED TERRITORY’ (Er, sic?)

More from Bloomberg:

JPMorgan Chase & Co. (JPM), Goldman Sachs Group Inc. (GS) and

BlackRock Inc. (BLK) closed European money market funds to new

investments after the European Central Bank lowered deposit rates to

zero.

 

JPMorgan, the world’s biggest provider of money-market funds, won’t

accept new cash in five euro-denominated money- market and liquidity

funds because the rate cut may result in losses for investors, the

company said in a notice to shareholders. Goldman Sachs won’t accept new

money in its GS Euro Government Liquid Reserves Fund, and BlackRock,

the world’s largest asset manager, is restricting deposits in two

European funds.

 

JPMorgan’s five closed funds had 23.7 billion euros ($29.2 billion)

in assets as of July 5, the bank said in an e-mail, about 22 percent of

all euro-denominated money funds. The funds are JPMorgan’s Euro

Liquidity Fund, Euro Government Liquidity Fund, Euro Money Market Fund,

Euro Liquid Market Fund and JPMorgan Series II Funds — EUR.

 

The deposit rate cut “will almost certainly move cash bids in

short-dated instruments into negative territory, and so we have taken

the step to restrict subscriptions and switches into the funds in order

to protect existing shareholders from yield dilution,” JPMorgan said on

its website.

 

The company had $417 billion in money fund assets as of May 31,

making it the world leader, according to Crane Data LLC, a research firm

based in Westborough, Massachusetts. The entire euro-denominated money

fund industry has about 108 billion euros, Crane Data’s statistics show.

Effectively, the European money market industry is now closed and

only redemptions will be allowed as nobody can make «money» in money

markets in a Zero deposit rate environment. As another reminder, there

are hundreds of billions in residual cash in various European money

markets which is no longer welcome. Which then begs the question: as the

cash is unwound will it go into:

i) stocks
ii) bonds
iii) mattresses
iv) breaking the Swiss National Bank as everyone buys CHF and send the nominal yield on the 2 Year Swissie to -#Ref!
v) gold

We will find out soon enough.

Goldman Downgrades Morgan Stanley From Conviction Buy To Netural, Warns On Counterparty Risk | ZeroHedge

Posted by satyrikon στο Ιουνίου 26, 2012

GS just did what it does best: pulled the rug from under its most troubled peer: «We are downgrading MS to Neutral and removing shares from the America’s Conviction List. Since being added to the Americas Conviction List on January 29, 2012, MS shares are down 27% vs. flat for the S&P 500. Over the past 12 months, MS shares are down 39% vs. the S&P 500 up 4%. When we added shares to the Conviction List, we noted that MS had addressed a number of legacy issues including (1) the conversion of the MUFG preferred stock to common to bolster common equity capital ratios, (2) elimination of the CIC preferred dividend, (3) removal of the MBIA relationship//hedge overhang, (4) write-down of legacy real estate assets, (5) elimination of non-core asset management businesses, and (6) near-completion of the  integration of Smith Barney and Morgan Stanley Wealth Management. While that all still holds true today and should be beneficial towards long-term “normalized” returns, we believe several capital market overhangs will reduce out-year earnings visibility and cap near-term outperformance. While too soon to tell how counterparties will react to a new capital market ratings distribution post-Moody’s, this cycle has proven that banks with the largest increase in funding spreads have generally lost fixed income trading market share. In addition, with a number of global macro uncertainties likely to weigh on capital markets activity for the foreseeable future, MS has outsized exposure here as well.» Capitalism at its best: kick ’em while they’re down.

Just What Is Mario Draghi Hiding? ECB Declines To Respond To Bloomberg FOIA Request On Greek-Goldman Swaps | ZeroHedge

Posted by satyrikon στο Ιουνίου 14, 2012

Back in February 2010, in the aftermath of the discovery that none other than Goldman Sachs had facilitated for nearly a decade the masking of the true magnitude of non-Maastricht conforming Greek debt, Zero Hedge first identified the prospectus for a Goldman underwritten swap agreement securitization titled Titlos PLC. We titled the analysis «Is Titlos PLC The Downgrade Catalyst Trigger Which Will Destroy Greece?» because for all intents and purposes it was: at that time a rating agency downgrade of the country would lead to a chain of events which would make billions in assets ineligible for ECB collateral, forcing a massive margin call on the National Bank of Greece, which likely would have precipitated a Greek default there and then.

In retrospect, considering the two years of pain that Greece has already suffered, this may have been the better option as the country would have taken its bitter medicine, and become a second Iceland case study by now, growing at a brisk pace, unencumbered by debt, free from the clutches of the Euro, instead of having its economy collapse by nearly 10% every year without any resolution in sight.

But that is irrelevant for the time being: what is relevant is Titlos itself, and what Bloomberg did after we posted the analysis. It turns out that following in the footsteps of Mark Pittman, Bloomberg sued the ECB under Freedom of Information rules requesting «access to two internal papers drafted for the central bank’s six-member Executive Board. They show how Greece used swaps to hide its borrowings, according to a March 3, 2010, note attached to the papers and obtained by Bloomberg News. The first document is entitled “The impact on government deficit and debt from off-market swaps: the Greek case.” The second reviews Titlos Plc, a securitization that allowed National Bank of Greece SA, the country’s biggest lender, to exchange swaps on Greek government debt for funding from the ECB, the Executive Board said in the cover note. The ECB’s response: «The European Central Bank said it can’t release files showing how Greece may have used derivatives to hide its borrowings because disclosure could still inflame the crisis threatening the future of the single currency.»

Maybe.

But what is far more likely is that the reason why the ECB, headed by none other than former Goldmanite Mario Draghi, is desperate to keep these documents secret is for another reason. A very simple reason:

 
 

Mario Draghi – 2002-2005:  Vice Chairman and Managing Director at Goldman Sachs International

In other words, Draghi was a key executive at Goldman at precisely the time when none other than Goldman Sachs was hired to create and facilitate the active hiding of the true extent of the Greek debt problem.

In yet other words: could it be that none other than the head of the European Central Bank is refusing to cooperate with a Bloomberg FOIA, something even the US Federal Reserve ultimately succumbed to which led the revelation that the Fed had handed out trillions in secret loans to banks all around the world  – and that includes tens of billions in under the table loans to JPM, contrary to Dimon’s defense that he did not need the TARP money in Senate yesterday: he did, and much more, but since when is perjury a crime before a kangaroo court of bought politicians:

But this is not about JPM for once. Let’s go back to that infernal mollusc which everyone loved to hate in all of 2009 and 2010 until JP Morgan became the world’s Fed-backstopped, prop trading pinata, and the response that the ECB did provide to Bloomberg as a reason for not handing out the required information:

 
 

Disclosing the files when Bloomberg News first sought them in 2010 would have “fueled negative perceptions about Greece’s ability to honor its debt,” ECB lawyer Marta Lopez Torres said at a hearing of the European Union’s General Court in Luxembourg today. “It’s the same now with Spain” which “isn’t able to borrow money,” she said. “Markets are reacting in very volatile ways. It’s affecting the euro economy.”

In other words from Mutual Assured Destruction as a means to push through policy propaganda, M.A.D. is now the only option for heads of central banks from being exposed to the world as the very same people who enabled the current financial collapse in the first place?

Now we see…

More from Bloomberg, which explains the reasoning for demanding access to the two abovementioned docs:

 
 

These documents “played a role” in shaping policy and “highlighted there were issues” when the ECB undertook a review of its eligibility criteria for collateral in its funding operations, the ECB lawyer told the court.

 

The cornerstone of the ECB’s response to the crisis is to give banks as much money as they needed in return for collateral. In October 2010, the ECB changed the rules on the asset-backed securities it accepted and gave itself more discretionary power to reject collateral if necessary.

 

The public has a right to know how EU authorities may have allowed Greece to hide its deficit, which helped trigger Europe’s sovereign debt crisis,” said Matthew Winkler, editor- in-chief of Bloomberg News. “Greater transparency results in more accountability, and we seek this information to understand how this debt debacle unfolded in an effort to avoid repeating it.”

 

The Greek government didn’t originally disclose the swaps, designed to help it comply with the deficit and debt rules it agreed to meet when it joined the euro in 2001. The swaps allowed the country to increase borrowings by 5.3 billion euros, Eurostat, the EU’s statistics agency, said in November 2010.

 

In April 2009 — seven months before the Greek crisis erupted — ECB officials spotted “a swap operation in unusual terms,” according to the March 2010 document.

And back to Goldman, who in the 2001 onward period was the sole bank provider of shady currency swap transactions:

 
 

In the largest derivative transaction disclosed so far, Greece borrowed 2.8 billion euros from Goldman Sachs Group Inc. in 2001 through a derivative that swapped dollar- and yen- denominated debt issued by the nation for euros using a historical exchange rate, a move that generated an implied reduction in total borrowings.

 

“The Greek authorities had never informed Eurostat about this complex issue, and no opinion on the accounting treatment had been requested,” Eurostat, the Luxembourg-based statistics agency, said in a statement. The watchdog had only “general” discussions with financial institutions over its debt and deficit guidelines when the swap was executed in 2001.

 

“It is possible that Goldman Sachs (GS) asked us for general clarifications,” Eurostat said, declining to elaborate further.

 

Spokesmen for Goldman Sachs in London couldn’t immediately comment after the hearing.

How about asking that other Goldman Sachs spokesman, Mario Dragi? Perhaps at the next ECB press conference journalists can finally grow a pair and start asking the really important questions instead of listening to the violins as the European titanic is steadily sinking?

Πτωχεύστε γατί χανόμαστε

Οι Ταλιμπάν των Δημοσίων Οικονομικών

Οι δύο προηγούμενοι πρωθυπουργοί «έφυγαν νύχτα».

Ο πρώτος, με το δαχτυλίδι, την έκανε σούρουπο. Ο άλλος, με τα «τοξικά», την έκανε μεσημεράκι. Ο καινούργιος μπορεί και να την κάνει χαράματα, αν τα πράγματα αγριέψουν. Μία ομάδα επί των Δημοσίων Οικονομικών διοικεί τη χώρα. Η συνταγή είναι δεδομένη. Υλοποιείται το δόγμα που κυριάρχησε στην Ευρωπαϊκή Ένωση με τη σφραγίδα του Μάαστριχτ και τις λεπτομέρειες που αποφασίστηκαν στη Λισσαβώνα. Την ώρα που οι Αμερικανοί οδηγούν την Goldman Sachs στο σκαμνί για εξαπάτηση των πελατών τους, η Ευρώπη αποκαλύπτει την αδυναμία της να αντιμετωπίσει τις επιπτώσεις από την ανεξέλεγκτη κίνηση των κεφαλαίων. Στην πρώην Γιουγκοσλαβία η Ευρώπη απώλεσε την πολιτική τιμή της. Στη μάχη του ευρώ χάνει τον πόλεμο. Είναι τόσο δυσαναπλήρωτο το έλλειμμα πολιτικού προσωπικού, ώστε ο άγνωστος εκπρόσωπος των Βρετανών Φιλελευθέρων που κέρδισε τις εντυπώσεις στο πρώτο Debate, έρχεται τώρα πρώτος στις δημοσκοπήσεις. Τόσο στιβαρή πολιτική κουλτούρα διαθέτουν οι επίγονοι του Κρόμγουελ, ώστε να αλλάζουν τοποθέτηση ανάλογα με τα κελεύσματα των τηλεοπτικών παραγωγών.
Με άλλοθι την καταρρέουσα Ελλάδα, η Γερμανία (προφανώς και οι δορυφόροι της) αναζητά σενάρια διαφυγής με στόχο τη δημιουργία συνθηκών για ένα «σταθερό νόμισμα». Νομίζαμε πως θα ήταν η Ελλάδα που θα εγκαταλείψει το ευρώ. Ενδεχομένως να είναι η ίδια η Γερμανία, βασικός υπαίτιος μιας κρίσης κατά την οποία η ατμομηχανή της Ευρώπης κυριαρχεί όταν τα βαγόνια έχουν εκτροχιαστεί. Σε αυτή την Ευρώπη, χωρίς πολιτικό προσωπικό και δυναμική αντιμετώπιση των αντιπάλων της, το δόγμα που εγκαθιδρύθηκε ως η πεμπτουσία της οικονομικής διαχείρισης ήταν και είναι η θρησκεία των Δημόσιων Οικονομικών. Αυτή η θρησκοληψία οδήγησε στα ατοπήματα. Αυτός ο δογματισμός ανήγαγε τους οίκους αξιολόγησης σε βασικούς συνεργάτες, τις τράπεζες σε προνομιακούς πελάτες και τα τοξικά προϊόντα σε αναπόφευκτες πρακτικές. Στην πρώτη μεγάλη κρίση, το οικοδόμημα γονάτισε. Όχι… δεν πτώχευσε η Γαλλία ούτε χτύπησε κόκκινο η Ολλανδία. Απλά υπερπλούτισε η Γερμανία. Αυτός ο υπερπλουτισμός έφερε την ανισορροπία. Η Γερμανία, εν μέσω κρίσης και με ένα υποτιμημένο ευρώ, ανακοίνωσε ρεκόρ εισπράξεων από τις εξαγωγές της. Η Ευρώπη δούλεψε για το Βερολίνο.

Με στόχο τη συρρίκνωση

Το σύστημα αξιών της ηγετικής ομάδας της Ευρωπαϊκής Ένωσης, είτε ανήκει στην Κεντροδεξιά είτε στην Κεντροαριστερά, άλλωστε ποια είναι άραγε τα ευκρινή  όρια, εμβαπτίστηκε στο νεοφιλελεύθερο δόγμα και εντός αυτών των πλαισίων λειτουργεί. Το υπέρτατο αγαθό είναι η δημοσιονομική πειθαρχία. Στο έλεος αυτής της πειθαρχίας υπάγεται η λεγόμενη οικονομία, δηλαδή η κατ’ εξοχήν δραστηριότητα που συσσωρεύει πλούτο. Από τον πλούτο κερδίζουν τα κράτη και οι πολίτες. Χωρίς αυτόν δεν κερδίζει κανένας.
Η παιδεία, η υγεία και οι δημόσιες επενδύσεις σε υποδομές, το ασφαλιστικό και η κοινωνική πρόνοια ανήκουν σε κλάδους δραστηριοτήτων που μπορούν να επιβιώνουν μόνον στη βάση του κοινωνικού πλούτου που η οικονομία παράγει. Η Ελλάδα κατά την επόμενη δεκαετία θα οδηγηθεί στη συρρίκνωση όλων των παραπάνω δραστηριοτήτων, καταργώντας μία κοινωνική επένδυση δεκαετιών. Ήδη ανακοινώθηκε επίσημα ότι μελετώνται συγχωνεύσεις ή και κλείσιμο νοσοκομείων ή κλινικών.  Το Διεθνές Νομισματικό Ταμείο και η ευρωπαϊκή διοίκηση στις Βρυξέλλες δεν ενοχλούνται ούτε από την ύπαρξη προμηθευτών που καταληστεύουν το ΕΣΥ ούτε από την ύπαρξη πολιτικών ηγεσιών που λεηλάτησαν από το 1985 και μετά τα ασφαλιστικά ταμεία, με κορυφαία στιγμή τα τοξικά ομόλογα (απόβλητα) της κυβέρνησης Καραμανλή. Οι διεθνείς οργανισμοί επιβολής όρων διαχείρισης του δημόσιου χρέους ασχολούνται αντιθέτως με μία πτυχή του όλου ζητήματος. Πώς θα εισπράξουν πίσω τα δάνεια που παραχώρησαν με τους τόκους που προβλέπονται. Αυτοί οι οργανισμοί είναι τράπεζες ή τραπεζικά όργανα. Υπ’ αυτήν την έννοια δεν υπάρχει ελπίς.

Επιτέλους πτωχεύστε τη χώρα

Η σημερινή κυβέρνηση προχώρησε με πομπώδεις ανακοινώσεις στο νέο φορολογικό νομοσχέδιο. Αρχιτέκτων αυτού του νομοσχεδίου δεν ήταν μία ομάδα πολιτικών προσώπων που θα κατάρτιζε ένα νόμο με πολιτικά κριτήρια. Το φορολογικό το κατάρτισε μία ιδιωτική εταιρεία ορκωτών λογιστών. Η Price Waterhouse and Coopers.  Η ομάδα των Ταλιμπάν των Δημοσίων Οικονομικών, ή αλλιώς η Αγία Τριάδα του δόγματος Γιάννου Παπαντωνίου, ανέθεσε σε εταιρεία ορκωτών λογιστών την κατάρτιση ενός νόμου που θα έπρεπε να ήταν η κατ’ εξοχήν πολιτική επιλογή μιας κυβέρνησης που διατείνεται πως στηρίζει την κοινωνική δικαιοσύνη. Με βάση αυτόν το νόμο, εταιρεία Real Estate που ανήκει στο γνωστότερο Έλληνα επιχειρηματία, η οποία όμως υπάγεται στη δική του τράπεζα, φορολογείται με ένα τοις χιλίοις επί των κερδών της. Η Εκκλησία φορολογείται με τρία τοις χιλίοις, για να υπάρχει συγκριτική αναφορά. Δεν πρόκειται για σκάνδαλο, αλλά για πολιτική επιλογή.
Το φθινόπωρο που μας πέρασε η νεοαφιχθείσα κυβέρνηση είχε διασφαλίσει ένα δάνειο μερικών δεκάδων δισεκατομμυρίων ευρώ από την Κίνα. Τα ίδια τα μέλη της κυβέρνησης «κάρφωσαν» τη συμφωνία. Τα αποτελέσματα είναι γνωστά. Το δάνειο αυτό θα μπορούσε να χρησιμοποιηθεί, τότε, ως αναπτυξιακό κεφάλαιο. Για τη διαρροή ελέγχεται η ίδια η ομάδα που διαχειρίζεται τα Δημόσια Οικονομικά.

Τώρα πλέον είναι αργά για δάκρυα. Η πολιτική ηγεσία αυτή της χώρας έχει να επιλέξει μεταξύ πολιτικής αυτοκτονίας με καθοδηγητή το ΔΝΤ ή να χρησιμοποιήσει το μοναδικό όπλο που διαθέτει. Πτώχευση εδώ και τώρα, διακοπή πληρωμών και διαγραφή του χρέους. Όπως ομολογούν κυβερνητικά στελέχη, με ένα ετήσιο ΑΕΠ της τάξης των 300 δις ευρώ και με τις υφιστάμενες καταθέσεις δεν προσφεύγεις στο Διεθνές Νομισματικό Ταμείο. Εκτός αν οι επιλογές της ομάδας των διαχειριστών των Δημοσίων Οικονομικών ήταν άλλες και στόχευαν στο να παραδώσουν τη χώρα στο ευρωπαϊκό Κονκλάβιο, αλλά στο δρόμο τούς ξέφυγε ο έλεγχος. Την επιλογή της ρήξης με το ΔΝΤ έκανε η Αργεντινή. Ο διεθνής οργανισμός τότε  ψαχνόταν. Οι τράπεζες επίσης.

Η Αργεντινή διεσώθη με την παραγραφή του 80% των χρεών της.

Η WALL STREET ΠΙΣΩ ΑΠΟ ΤΗΝ ΟΙΚΟΝΟΜΙΚΗ ΚΡΙΣΗ ΤΗΣ ΕΛΛΑΔΑΣ

Posted by satyrikon στο Μαρτίου 27, 2010

William Engdahl, author of «Full Spectrum Dominance», says the roots of the euro’s crisis lie in the US.

“Wall Street is really behind this whole Greek crisis from the beginning. Moody’s Rating Service – most people are unaware of this, but the world’s premier credit rating service that made the credit downgrade of Greece at the end of last year, it started this whole crisis,” William Engdahl said.

“The guards of money – Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan Chase, Citigroup, Morgan Stanley – what they want with this situation with Greece is to have a rolling crisis in ‘euro land’ that takes the focus away from the weakness of the dollar,” he added.
