The Real Reason Facebook’s Libra Won’t Get Off the Ground

0 | By Shah Gilani

This won’t take long.

That’s because the real reason Facebook’s Libra, Mark Zuckerberg’s would-be world dominating cryptocurrency, won’t get off the ground isn’t because of what any of its detractors are saying about it.

And, they sure are hammering it from every angle.

The real reason Libra will never be what it could be is that it could replace central banks’ lucrative fiat currency, fractional reserve magic money grand scheme.

Here’s what everyone’s saying and the real reason Libra is being killed in its cradle…..

A Massive Bank Bailout Could Soon Strike Global Markets Again

0 | By Shah Gilani

The beginning of the newly restructured Deutsche Bank may end up like every other iteration of the old struggling Deutsche Bank.

That’s because the giant German lender and would-be Master of the Universe, sometimes known simply as DB, who just announced 18,000 more layoffs as it downsizes, again, may be charged criminally for its involvement in the global 1MDB scandal.

Depending on what charges the U.S. Justice Department may file, and how big a fine Deutsche Bank may have to pay, the European Central Bank (ECB) may have to lend DB more money to not end up where it really belongs, in the history books.

With the biggest number of bank layoffs since the bankruptcy of Lehman, and a 10-year $17 billion tab in fines for regulatory failures and technically criminal activity, DB’s woes are anything but over.

But there’s more

Capital Wave Forecast: Go with the Flow on Rising Global Capital

0 | By Shah Gilani

The forecast this week for equities, and bonds for that matter, is partly to mostly sunny with occasional earnings misses and “talked-down” forward guidance casting the only clouds on the landscape.

The Fed advertising their intent to backstop markets by cutting rates is by now old news.

It’s almost a stated guarantee that we’ll see a quarter point cut out of the July 30-31 meeting minutes.

Then there’s the prospect of a September cut. Fed Funds futures are pointing to that as more than likely.

Not a bad background from which to paint a rosy picture.

But there’s more…

What the Failure of Deutsche Bank Says About Central Banks

0 | By Shah Gilani

No, Deutsche Bank, Germany’s largest bank, hasn’t failed, as in going out of business and being shut down.

But it has failed in every other sense of the word.

What happened to Deutsche Bank is a warning.

It’s not a warning for how greedy bankers blow themselves up, though it is about that.

It’s not a warning against how easily compliance can be circumvented, though it is about that.

It’s not a warning of what one giant bank’s “failures” can do to banking across a country or Union, though it is about that.

Ultimately, Deutsche Bank’s failures are a warning about how central banks cover up failure and how dangerous they are

No Free Market Until We’re Free from the Federal Reserve

0 | By Shah Gilani

The Federal Reserve System is a plague on free enterprise, on capitalism, and on democracy.

There’s only one way to free America of the increasingly powerful and manipulative future a private central bank yokes us to.

That’s to revoke the Federal Reserve Act of 1913 and all subsequent amendments to the act.

Here’s what the Federal Reserve is empowered to do, why the act that legislated it into existence should be revoked, and what should replace it…

Capital Wave Forecast: Where Half a Trillion Dollars Could Possibly Go Next

0 | By Shah Gilani

For a short week last week, the long in the tooth bull market sure showed its “agelessness.”

Too bad there wasn’t any meaningful volume of capital inflows to warrant the records that were broken.

Then again, it was a holiday shortened week.

Still, as old as this bull is, the only thing that’s not killing it is the Federal Reserve’s mouth to mouth resuscitation efforts and the fact that it’s the MOST HATED and MISTRUSTED bull market in HISTORY.

And that means, what’s moving markets higher is all the sidelined money, like the money that didn’t come in last week, or the month before, or the quarter before.

It’s all there on the sidelines and waiting to come in or waiting to say “I told you so!”

That is, if the market tail turns

Just a few days ago, Shah shared his contrarian view on Tesla’s record filled orders: the market has simply been too generous. Though the stock pops, the demand of orders are all fulfilled, and competition is creeping in. Shah also addresses what kind of effect the disappointing jobs number will have long term on markets and the economy at large… Click here to watch.

Enough Already with the Federal Reserve Ruining America

0 | By Shah Gilani

The fact of the matter is, the Federal Reserve System, America’s so-called central bank, which by the way chose Federal as part of their name to imply they’re a department of the federal government (they’re not, they’re a private institution), chose to call themselves a “System” as opposed to a bank (because banks were hated and causing America’s boom-bust cycles at the time of the Fed’s creation), is ruining America.

Here’s what the Federal Reserve really does and why it should be abolished

Facebook Will Become a New Central Bank: What to Do Now

0 | By Shah Gilani

As if the world’s central banks, especially America’s private central bank the Federal Reserve System, weren’t secretive enough, powerful enough, manipulative enough, and self-serving enough, along comes Facebook, creator of another central bank.

Yep, you heard me.

Facebook is creating a central bank, though I doubt they’ll ever admit it or call it that, to manage Libra.

Be afraid, be very afraid, if Facebook’s Libra cryptocurrency takes hold, because the central bank it’s setting up will be secretive, powerful, and manipulative, just like the Federal Reserve.

Here’s what you don’t know about what Facebook’s really doing with Libra
