Learn Economics Topic Eighteen


A central bank policy that attempts to fix all the nations with one policy has failed. The UK wants its GDP to grow, so it makes no sense to adopt the Euro.


A fifth of total banking activity in the entire world is booked in the UK. Derivatives and clearing houses and OTC trading is centered in London; how will Brexit affect the City of London?

Most of my articles on Talkmarkets are written to be considered "evergreen", or intended to be fresh articles even as time passes. Most subjects I have written about have proven to lend themselves to considerable lasting effect.


While I have supported some economic policy, it turns out that racism was a strong motivator for some of those policies. I oppose racism in all forms and prove my commitment by rejecting anything other than the Westphalia or Westfalia view of sovereignty, which is mutual respect for all nations by all other nations. 

Perverse sovereignty is as bad or even worse than excesses in globalization which gives banks power over governments. Both are ultimately bad for America. This blogger supports free trade and opposes a border tax. But government should be stronger in order to rein in big banks who abuse the people with toxic loans.

17. Eurodollars, Repos, and Jeffrey P Snider:

Fed and Trump Fail the Eurodollar

The Eurodollar market is all about US dollars. It is being starved of liquidity, which will hurt US trade. It could cause the dollar to rise as dollar shortages become the norm worldwide.

Unstable Repos and the London Connection

Repo fails are a sign of financialism gone bad. London is the seat of this financialization, which generates wild profits while the real economies of the western world continue to languish. Jeffrey P. Snider's look into repo fails is quite revealing.

Scarcity and the Hoarding of Bonds as Gold in Repo

The pressing question regarding the repo markets centers on collateral demand and scarcity. How much real and potential demand is there for sovereign bonds, used as collateral for all sorts of financial markets?

Repo Watch Looking for the Next Economic Crisis

Repo watching is an important economic indicator. If repos don't roll over, credit freezes up. It is sort of like looking at a giant glacier, waiting for the big collapse on the edges.


The essence of Jeffrey P. Snider's thesis is that yes, the Fed expanded its balance sheet after the Great Recession, and it did QE. But it did not fix the broken Eurodollar system and even from 2008 through 2018, there has been a chronic shortage of Eurodollars. It did not really allow full recovery. Therefore, shrinking the balance sheet now is a deflationary danger confronting the financial system in 2018 and perhaps going forward.

16. Reserve Currency and Triffin Paradox:

Henry Kissinger Schools Mercantilist Trump About Reserve Currency

Most of Trump's advisers are mercantilists. It will be necessary to watch the impact they have on Donald Trump's efforts to make "America great again" in the age of the American reserve currency.

Does Donald Trump Want a Financial Depression?

The disturbing issue for me is that the Austrian Economists who are influencing the administration do not believe that a financial depression is that big of a deal. The concept of the strong dollar under Trump also has to be addressed.

15. Sovereignty and Cashlessness: 

Banks Close in Rural Areas as World Cashlessness Advances

A look at world experience with cashlessness so far, and prospects for future economic and moral problems.

Larry Summers 100 Dollar Bill Ban and Westfalia Lost

Westphalia as a concept is superior to empire. Our freedoms are more likely to be honored in a system of national sovereignty. Larry Summers is attacking that sovereignty as a representative of a global financial system.

Miles Kimball's Sneaky Way of Destroying Cash

Zero is more important than most Americans understand. It is time that we do understand why it is important and why those who want to destroy it are so sneaky in their advocacy against zero.

Riksbank: Cash Must Be a Protected Legal Right for Good Reason

There is an economic reason that cash must be a protected legal right. The health of your nation's GDP could depend on it.

13. Attacks on Millennials:

Desperate Banker Attacks on Millennials via Media are Ramping Up

With a little humor, I try to point out the media machine attack on millennials. There could be a big financial pot of gold at stake for banks in the shaming of millennials.

Fox Business News Tobak Continues Media Blitz Against Millennials

The cost of living and diminished wages, as the Fed destroys the stickiness of wages, have put millennials in survival mode.

Millennials Need to Wake Up About Derivatives and the Cashless Society

Not trying to attack millennials here, but admonishing them about the need for cash. Millennials must understand all the implications of a cashless society. Once they understand the negative implications, they will see that treacherous results can come with the elimination of cash in society.
