Airtime: Thurs. Mar. 18 2010 | 3:24 AM ET - CNBC "I think interest rates forever in the US will be at zero. By zero I mean below the rate of inflation," Marc Faber, editor & publisher of The Gloom, Boom & Doom Report, told CNBC Thursday. Faber also said that the Chinese economy will slow down, but avoid a crash.
Charman bernancke (wed 2-25-2010) warned Congress that the Federal Reserve would not back US spending at current deficits. That means financing from overseas, tax hikes, or default. It also means a severe limitation on funds supplied to the system. Expect credit to dry up almost completely, and interest rates to rise as money becomes scarce...!

Mark Faber says root problem of artificially low interest rates and increasing the money supply will cause inflation; but inflation can be spread out over many sectors, or manifest itself as a bubble - a misallocation of capital. Low interest rates cause speculation into asset classes as investors seek to generate a return on their capital, especially when anticipation of inflation is high. Recently, China has started to restrict capital flows as it's massive stimulus package fueled commercial and residential in certain cities. Negative Interest Rates: The US Government may raise interest rates, but continue to expand the money supply at a faster rate in order to service government obligations. Likely that the US will not default on all debts, but may default on certain foreign debts while utilizing inflation (increasing the money supply) to service current and future obligations.

www.RonPaul.com In his latest appearance on CNBC, Ron Paul explains to 'In Fed We Trust' author and Bernanke apologist David Wessel why we should end the Federal Reserve's power to set interest rates and engage in central economic planning. Wessel concedes that the Fed has been too secretive for its own good and has become the victim of public anger against bank bailouts. He goes on to perpetuate the myth that we live in a 'capitalist democracy' and that such an organization needs an 'independent' central bank. Ron Paul counters that the system is already thoroughly politicized and that we don't have true capitalism, but crony capitalism and economic interventionism. Ron Paul is America's leading voice for limited constitutional government, low taxes, free markets, and a return to sound monetary policies.

The financial collapse has been triggered by the so called Peak Oil problem. In the future, banking and interest will have to be completely different if we want to have a stable economy.
Update - Fed losing control of bond market?... www.youtube.com Conventional wisdom which suggests that rising interest rates crush stock prices and that falling rates stimulate the market. I first published a version of this chart on a message board in 2007, when the Fed cut rates after a market selloff. I'm not unique in charting this relationship, nor in using it to challenge conventional thinking, but I do think that I have something to contribute to the discussion. At that time, in 2007, the market was struggling and the consensus was that cutting rates would 'save the day'. This chart suggested otherwise and was subsequently proved correct. Rates were slashed but the market continued to fall - just as it had done from the peak in 2000. I'm afraid it is now time to look at this chart from the other perspective. Stocks have made a major move up, rates have bottomed but rumblings are being made that they will rise over coming months. Clearly, interest rates and stocks have, during the period in question generally enjoyed a surprising relationship. There was a period from 1995 to 1998 where rates were falling while the market rose but taking simple tops and bottoms in 2000, 2003, and again in 2007 it certainly looks as though stocks and rates have a correlation - and that stocks lead the relationship, not the other way around as is generally touted. Why would this be - surely rising rates should kill the market, and easing of rates simulate. Isn't that what we've just ...

August 26, 1988 www.amazon.com Watch the full interview: thefilmarchived.blogspot.com Ron Paul's opposition to the Federal Reserve is supported by the Austrian Business Cycle Theory, which holds that instead of containing inflation, the Federal Reserve, in theory and in practice, is responsible for causing inflation. In addition to eroding the value of individual savings, this creation of inflation leads to booms and busts in the economy. Thus Paul argues that government, via a central bank (the Federal Reserve), is the primary cause of economic recessions and depressions. He believes that economic volatility is decreased when the free market determines interest rates and money supply. He has stated in numerous speeches that most of his colleagues in Congress are unwilling to abolish the central bank because it funds many government activities. He says that to compensate for eliminating the "hidden tax" of inflation, Congress and the president would instead have to raise taxes or cut government services, either of which could be politically damaging to their reputations. He states that the "inflation tax" is a tax on the poor, because the Federal Reserve prints more money which subsidizes select industries, while poor people pay higher prices for goods as more money is placed in circulation. He condemns the role of the Federal Reserve and the national debt in creating inflation. The minority report of the US Gold Commission states that the federal and state governments ...

The US Federal Reserve says it will keep its benchmark interest rate at historic lows while it winds down a program aimed at propping up the struggling housing market. Although there are signs that the worst recession in decades is starting to ease, members of the Federal Open Market Committee pledged Wednesday to keep rates at one quarter of one percent for an "extended period" - until an economic recovery is firmly in place.

Max Keiser talks to Stacy Herbert about negative interest rates recorded on September 2nd 2009
www.house.gov CampaignForLiberty.com Mr. Speaker, the big guns have lined up against HR 1207, the bill to audit the Federal Reserve. What is it that they are so concerned about? What information are they hiding from the American people? The screed is ``Transparency is okay--except for those things they don't want to be transparent.'' Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke argues that HR 1207, the legislation to audit the Federal Reserve, would politicize monetary policy. He claims that monetary policy must remain ``independent,'' that is, secret. He ignores history, because chairmen of the Federal Reserve in the past, especially when up for reappointment, do their best to accommodate the President with politically driven low interest rates and a bubble economy. Former Federal Reserve Board Chairman Arthur Burns, when asked about all the inflation he brought about in 1971, before Nixon's re-election, said that the Fed has to do what the President wants it to do, or it would ``lose its independence.'' That about tells you everything. Not by accident, Chairman Burns strongly supported Nixon's program of wage and price controls, the same year; but I guess that's not political. Is not making secret deals with the likes of Goldman Sachs, international financial institutions, foreign governments and foreign central banks, politicizing monetary policy? Bernanke argues that the knowledge that their discussions and decisions will one day be scrutinized will compromise the freedom of ...

The Stench of Truth 198 Most, if not all, of you have seen the Dennis Kucinich clip where he points out that the FED is paying premium interest rates to banks to keep money in reserve at the FED instead of lending it out. The stimulus money and other bailouts were meant to address the credit crunch but they have instead made it worse. This is the same FED that has given hundreds of billions to banks here and abroad while people and businesses in this country can't get a loan. Finally what the hell is with Youtube partnering with a supposed civil rights group that is not a civil rights group on the issue of hate speech. The ADL is a Jewish rights group, not a civil rights group. They are not the be all and end all of what is acceptable. They have a role and that is fine, helping Jewish people. They do nothing to protect my rights. I wish they would not try to disguise what they are.
On Thursday of last week, July 2009, the Federal Reserves vice chairman, Donald Kohn, threatened to jack up interest rates if Congress continues to expose some of the US central banks most sensitive decisions to political scrutiny.
Watch with clarity as easy money (literally made by fiat, or 'cause I say so) created by the fed coupled with fractional reserve banking (leverage) that caused the collapse of this bubble and every other one since the existence of the private central bank . . . . can anyone logically defend the actions of the fed? Support HR 1207 and S 604 Remember, the fed controls the money supply, and charges interest to do so . . . think about the implications of this. 2 reasons this should upset you 1) Since all money comes from the fed and the fed always lends money at interest, money is by definition debt. You are a slave to money. Ponder this. 2) If all debt in the economy were paid off, how much money would there be? Zip, zilch, zero....that sounds sustainable, right?
Frederic Miskin, former Federal Reserve Board governor and professor at Columbia University, discussed the importance of keeping mortgage rates low with Andy Serwer, and CNBCs Rick Santeli, and Steve Leisman this morning on Squawk Box this morning. Miskin stressed the importance of keeping the Federal Reserve separate from government intervention, preventing inflation, and preventing the demand for housing from falling even lower. If the treasury dumps debts on markets, this will lead to higher interest rates, which will lead to higher mortgage rates, which will then cause a decrease in demand for both housing and lower housing prices, which can impact the overall financial system, said Mishkin. And while he says it is important for the Federal Reserve to maintain independence, he thinks fiscal policy should be amended in order to keep mortgage rates low. The monetary policy now should keep mortgage rates low, but it cant without help from the federal government, said Mishkin.
To most Americans, the Federal Reserve is just another name on their dollar bill. They don't know that this secretive private bank controls America's entire economic system. The Federal Reserve is no more federal than Federal Express. Created with no constitutional authority in 1913, the Fed prints money out of thin air and loans it to the US treasury at interest. This can only lead to one outcome: debt. Currently, the Federal Reserve is printing billions of dollars to bail out Wall Street while destroying the middle class and the dollar. If our country wants a sound and transparent monetary system, we need to phase out the Federal Reserve system giving power back to the US treasury.
