Iceland Has Offered Foreign Bondholders A “Choice”: Sell Now, Or Have Cash Impounded Indefinitely

serveimage
Iceland has had a difficult past few months politically, as its Prime Minister Sigmundur David Gunlaugsson became the first casualty of the Panama Papers.

Economically however, the story is more upbeat, as the country has rebounded since the financial crisis. The Icelandic Krona has stabilized against the Euro, the rate of change in inflation has slowed, and the country has recorded year-over-year growth in GDP each year since 2011.

However, in a shocking turn of events, a law passed on May 22 by Iceland’s parliament is offering the foreign holders of about $2.3 billion worth of krona-denominated bonds a choice of either selling out in June at a below-market exchange rate, or have the money they receive upon maturity be impounded indefinitely in low interest bank accounts. In other words, Iceland is trying to kick out foreign investors.

‘Basic income’ poll: 64% of Europeans would vote in favor, 4% would stop working

serveimage
Most Europeans support the idea of a “basic income” paid to every individual to cover their basic needs, according to the first EU-wide survey on the subject. Governments would pay the same amount of money to each person, regardless of whether they work.

The poll, conducted by German company Dalia Research in April, was the first EU-wide survey to address the proposal of a basic income, defined in the poll as “an income unconditionally paid by the government to every individual regardless of whether they work and irrespective of any other sources of income.”

The preliminary results found that about 58 percent of respondents were aware of the idea of a basic income, and 64 percent would vote in favor of the policy in a referendum.

“Get pensioners to pick fruit and vegetables in the fields” says Tory minister

 width=
Hapless former Environment Secretary, Owen Paterson, suggested that old age pensioners be put to work on the UK’s fruit farms. He even had the cheek to say that because they would probably be a bit slow, they should be paid less than the minimum wage so as not to waste the farmers’ money.

Paterson’s army of silver haired and grimy finger nailed serfs would have replaced some 20,000 (mostly youthful) Bulgarians and Romanians who had been employed seasonally under a scheme which preceded the total opening of the jobs market to the eastern European countries.

The notion that the elderly are somehow slacking and need to be put to work if they’re to have any social value is a grotesque distortion of reality. Lord Bichard, a former head of the Benefits Agency, proposed that retired people should do community service or face losing some of their pension. He was slapped down by, among others, Michelle Mitchell of Age UK who pointed out that over a third of people aged 65-74 already do voluntary work anyway. No doubt many such folk enjoy picking fruit as well, but there’s a huge difference between a spot of pick your own with the grandkids and the gruelling high pace and long hours of a commercial farm.

Canada plans to experiment with giving people unconditional free money

df
Finland and the Netherlands have already shown their interest in giving people a regular monthly allowance regardless of working status, and now Ontario, Canada is onboard.

Ontario’s government announced in February that a pilot program will be coming to the Canadian province sometime later this year.

The premise: send people monthly checks to cover living expenses such as food, transportation, clothing, and utilities — no questions asked.

It’s a radical idea, and one that has been around since the 1960s. It’s called “basic income.” In the decades since it was first proposed, various researchers and government officials have given basic income experiments a try, to mixed results.

To Lift Quality of Life and Economy, Finland Champions Universal Basic Income

serveimage
As a way to improve living standards and boosts its economy, the nation of Finland is moving closer towards offering all of its adult citizens a basic permanent income of approximately 800 euros per month.

The monthly allotment would replace other existing social benefits, but is an idea long advocated for by progressive-minded social scientists and economists as a solution—counter-intuitive as it may first appear at first—that actually decreases government expenditures and unemployment while boosting both productivity and quality of life.

“For me, a basic income means simplifying the social security system,” Finland’s Prime Minister Juha Sipilä said last week.

Though it would not be implemented until later in 2016, recent polling shows that nearly 70 percent of the Finnish people support the idea.

War on everything

serveimageCXDUYHWN
War on terror or War of terror

War on terror started soon after the World Trade Centre in New York was targeted with commercial airliners. This was possibly one of the world’s biggest false flag events and the American government and its so called allies went on to bomb Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya and is now fighting a proxy war in Syria, with the very real possibility of a third world war with Russia and/or China looming over the horizon.

First the enemy was al-Qaeda, then the Taliban in Afghanistan, the very organization that the west had encouraged to fight the Russians. After a few years the west seemed to have lost interest in Afghanistan and in the meantime had started a full scale war with Iraq killing possibly a million people and totally devastating the country before moving on to Libya to cause the very same destruction. In Syria our enemy is supposed to be ISIS or is it Daesh. Our enemy is whatever they say it is. Iran is next on the list.

This so called war on terror is simply a means to control the resources of these countries and has nothing whatsoever to do with bringing democracy to these once sovereign states. It is also about removing the last countries that have not joined the club. The banking cartel is the main reason for such destruction. The banks control the World not governments.

War on cash

It has been planned for a while now that cash will disappear completely from our everyday lives and credit and debit cards will be the only way to pay. Also the mobile phone will be pushed as a way to pay which might even make the cards obsolete. At the moment we have many different ways to pay but in the future we may only have one choice. Every transaction we make in the future whether buying or selling will be recorded somewhere. This information will be used to keep meticulous records of our lives in order to charge tax and build a profile of the person we are or the person they think we are. Already some major banks are lowering their interest rates to zero or below and some countries are beginning to think about getting rid of cash altogether like Sweden.

War on the net

The internet has been the greatest instrument of freedom we have the pleasure to witness in recent times. But this is a real problem to the controlling elites. They are desperately trying to find ways to curb our use of this great Oracle. At the moment they do not have much control on the information we can access. When it was just the printed word as in newspapers and TV news it was easy to get the story straight, but now they have lost control of what we know. Right now Facebook and Twitter have had controls put on them to block certain content. We are losing the choice to make up our own minds of what we read.

War on CO2

Some time ago it was decided that the world was warming and this is caused by humans and not by any natural means. It cannot be anything to do with any normal cycles with the sun as the biggest driver of climate that have been going on for millions of years. No it must be us, we are the problem. CO2 is a poison not a vital ingredient of our atmosphere that plants need to grow. How arrogant that we could change the climate so much and even more arrogant that we could fix it. The climate will always change whatever we try to do, it has always changed in the past.
Anyway be controlling CO2 emissions they have a great tool to control us. As usual it is the ordinary people that have to suffer and not the elites at the top who ignore all their own advice, they are immune to anything they say.

War on freedom

There has been a war on our freedom for hundreds of years as the powers that be are moving ever towards their goal of controlling everything that we do or think. They are scared of us and the potential that we have. If we are to move on to the next dimension of our existence then it is up to us to grasp the chance now and not let some minority control our future world. This life is ours and not the property of someone else. Our future is up to us. (Forsooth)

Real Goods Are The Real Money

serveimage

Certainly not gold or cash under the mattress.

Written by Tom Chatham.

We have seen the massive drop in the Baltic Dry Index over the past few months indicating shipping of bulk materials around the world is slowing down to unprecedented levels. We have seen the shutdown and mothballing of hundreds of locomotive engines in the U.S. just over the past few months indicating goods and raw materials are not being shipped in the normal volume as in years past.

We are seeing hundreds of stores run by major retailers being shut down around the country indicating people are not buying goods at the same rate as in years past. Most of our manufacturing ability has been shipped overseas to lower input costs. It has been reported that as many as 15% of the farmers in the U.S. will go out of business this year.

This all means two things. People no longer have the means to buy at will and the amount of goods available will continue to fall until there are severe shortages in the system. The lack of production and distribution will insure that the standard of living of most Americans will drop in the coming months as supply is outstripped by demand in a collapsing economy. As indicated above, the collapse is not coming soon, it is here now.

Real goods trump money of any kind when it comes to everyday living. If you have a years worth of goods stored in your home or the ability to produce them locally, it does not matter if you have a million dollars or no money at all. It does not matter if the store shelves are full or empty. It does not matter if goods are being produced and transported. If you have access to those goods you have what you actually need and not paper promises to get them at some future date for an unspecified amount.

Germany Unveils “Cash Controls” Push: Ban Transactions Over €5,000, €500 Euro Note

serveimage

On Tuesday we got the latest evidence that officials across the globe are preparing to institute a cashless “utopia” when Handelsblatt reported (in a piece called “The Death of Cash) that the Social Democrats – the junior partner in Angela Merkel’s coalition government – have proposed a €5,000 limit on cash transactions and the elimination of the €500 note. 

Berlin is using a familiar scapegoat to justify the plan: the need to fight “terrorists” and “foreign criminals.”

“Limits on cash transactions would discourage foreign criminals from coming here to launder money,” says a paper penned by the Social Democrats. “If sums over €5,000 have to pass through traceable bank transactions, laundering would be severely hampered, it adds.”

Iceland Sentences 29th Banker To Prison, US Bankers Still Collecting Bonuses

serveimage

REYKJAVIK, Iceland — While the world economy struggles to recover from the 2008 financial crisis, most of the bankers who caused the collapse are still collecting massive salaries and have faced few, if any, consequences.

Except in Iceland.

In one of the countries hit hardest by the collapse, 29 bankers have now been sentenced to prison for their roles in the crash. According to, Stefan Simanowitz, writing for The Huffington Post on Jan. 5, “Just before Christmas, the former CEO of Iceland’s Glitnir bank and two other senior bankers were sentenced to jail terms of up to five years for market manipulation and breach of fiduciary duties.”

Simanowitz questioned why the United States and the United Kingdom, for example, have been far more lenient on their banks.

“[N]ot a single senior banking executive in the US or the UK has been jailed for their role in the financial crisis. Whilst banks — such as the five found to be rigging the Libor rate — have been hit with substantial fines, the individual bankers behind the fraud, market rigging and irresponsible lending that led to the economic meltdown have all avoided time behind bars.”

Switzerland To Hand Out $2500 Monthly To All Citizens

serveimage
With Citi’s chief economist proclaiming “only helicopter money can save the world now,” and the Bank of England pre-empting paradropping money concerns, it appears that Australia’s largest investment bank’s forecast that money-drops were 12-18 months away was too conservative. While The Finns consider a “basic monthly income” for the entire population, Swiss residents are to vote on a countrywide referendum about a radical plan to pay every single adult a guaranteed income of around $2500 per month, with authorities insisting that people will still want to find a job.

The plan, as The Daily Mail reports, proposed by a group of intellectuals, could make the country the first in the world to pay all of its citizens a monthly basic income regardless if they work or not. But the initiative has not gained much traction among politicians from left and right despite the fact that a referendum on it was approved by the federal government for the ballot box on June 5.

Iceland forgives entire population its debt. Total US media blackout.

serveimage
The government of Iceland has forgiven the mortgage debt for much of its population. This nation chose a very different way of stopping the crisis from the rest of European countries. It decided to hear the requests of the population and to put politicians and bankers on the bench of the accused three years after their financial excesses would sank one of the most prosperous economies in 2008.

Iceland Forgives Mortgage Debt for the Population. Putting Bankers and Politicians on “Bench of Accused”

This is awesome. It shows when the people DO STAND UP they have more power and win against the corrupt bankers and politicians of a country. Iceland is forgiving and erasing the mortgage debt of the population.

The US Rothschild Controlled Media (RCM) has completely BLACKED OUT/CENSORED any news about Iceland’s DEBT FORGIVENESS.

If you Google “ICELAND FORGIVES ENTIRE POPULATION OF MORTGAGE DEBT” you will get ‘About 359,000 Results’. Not one of them is a Media Outlet in the US. Not one single Major or Minor news outlet in America has mentioned a single word about this story.

Why interest rates will never rise

serveimage

Interest rates have been at an all-time low now for seven years in the UK at 0.5%. It has been a bad time for savers but good for those trying to pay off their mortgage.

I think that the rate will stay at its present level for the foreseeable future or perhaps indefinably. There is even the possibility that it will go into negative territory, which will mean that you will be charged to keep your money in the bank.

During the last seven years savers have been losing money on their savings and it is hitting the retired worse as they were trying to live off any interest during retirement.

The poor are getting poorer and the middle class is being pushed down towards the bottom. In the end if nothing changes there will be only two class systems in this country – the poor and the unbelievably rich. I think this has been engineered to supress the people and put more power into fewer hands and it is not just the UK but is a pattern in the rest of the World as well.

There is so much bad news in the World right now concerning money and banks, perhaps we need to withdraw our money from these criminal organizations and stick it under the mattress. Not sure if I can do this, there is also the possibility that even the paper money could become worthless. Maybe we need to invest in real things that will protect us in the future, like food, fuel, homes, etc. We most certainly need to invest in community, this is where we can protect each other, and we are helpless trying to weather the coming storm by ourselves. (Forsooth)
