Proverbs 22:3 NLT

A prudent person foresees danger and takes precautions. The simpleton goes blindly on and suffers the consequences.

there is a decay of conscience, the pulpit is responsible for it))) --

Here it comes– more leading economists call for capital controls
January 23, 2014
Sovereign Valley Farm, Chile

As the saying goes, 'desperate times call for desperate measures.'

The phrase is bandied about so frequently, it's generally accepted truth. But I have to tell you that I fundamentally disagree with the premise.

Desperate times, in fact, call for a complete reset in the way people think. Desperate times call for the most intelligent, effective, least destructive measures. But these sayings aren't as catchy.

This old adage has become a crutch-- a way for policymakers to rationalize the idiotic measures they've put in place:


  • Inflation-adjusted interest rates that are... negative. 


  • Trillion dollar deficits. 


  • Endless wars and saber-rattling


  • Unprecedented expansion of central bank balance sheets. 


  • DIRECT CONFISCATION of people's bank accounts.



But hey... desperate times call for desperate measures. I guess we're all just supposed to be OK with that.

One of those desperate measures that's been coming up a lot lately is the re-re-re-introduction of capital controls.

It started in late 2012, when both the European Central Bank and the International Monetary Fund separately endorsed the use of capital controls.

For the IMF, it was a staunch reversal of its previous position, and Paul Krugman lauded the agency's "surprising intellectual flexibility" a few days later.

The IMF then followed up in 2013 with another little ditty proposing a global wealth tax. The good idea factory is clearly working 'round the clock over there.

Lately, two more leading economists-- Harvard professors Carmen Reinhart and Ken Rogoff-- have joined the debate.

In a speech to the American Economic Association earlier this month, the pair suggested that rich economies may need to resort to the tactics generally reserved for emerging markets.

This is code for financial repression and capital controls.

The idea behind capital controls is simple: create barriers to restrict the free flow of capital. And if you're on the receiving end, capital controls can be enormously destructive.

But for politicians, capital controls are hugely beneficial; once they trap funds within their borders, the money can be easily taxed, confiscated, or inflated.

Historically, capital controls have been used in 'desperate times'. Too much debt. Too much deficit spending. Wars. Huge trade deficit. Intentional currency devaluation. Etc.

Does any of this sound familiar? It's no surprise that policymakers have once again turned to this 'desperate measure'. They're already here.

Iceland has capital controls, over five years after its spectacular meltdown. We can also see capital controls in Cyprus, India, Argentina, etc.

I've been writing for years that capital controls are a foregone conclusion. This is no longer theory or conjecture. It's happening. And every bit of objective evidence suggests that the march towards capital controls will quicken.

This is a HUGE reason to consider holding a portion of your savings overseas in a strong, stable foreign bank where your home government won't as easily be able to trap your savings.

Other options including storing physical gold (even anonymously) at an overseas depository. Or if you're inclined and tech savvy, you can also own digital currency.

But perhaps the best way to move some capital abroad is to own foreign real estate, especially productive land.

Foreign real estate is not reportable. It's a great store of value. It generates both financial profits and personal resilience. It's a LOT harder to forcibly repatriate. And it ensures that you always have a place to go in case you need to get out of Dodge.

Even if nothing 'bad' ever happens, you won't be worse off for owning productive land in a thriving economy.

Like I said-- desperate times don't call for desperate measures. More than ever, it's time for a complete reset in the way we look at the most effective solutions. These options are certainly among them.

Mike &The Mechanics - Silent Running - Has anyone really read these words - sounds like what we are facing now- What did they know??? What did they see???

------Take the children and yourself
And hide out in the cellar

By now the fighting will be close at hand
Don't believe the church and state
And everything they tell you

Believe in me, I'm with the high command

Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?
Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?

There's a gun and ammunition
Just inside the doorway
Use it only in emergency

Better you should pray to God
The Father and the Spirit
Will guide you and protect from up here


Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?
Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?

Swear allegiance to the flag
Whatever flag they offer
Never hint at what you really feel
Teach the children quietly
For some day sons and daughters
Will rise up and fight while we stood still<<--- font="">


Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?
Can you hear me, can you hear me running?
Can you hear me running, can you hear me calling you?

(Can you hear me) hear me calling you?
(Can you hear me running) hear me running babe?
(Can you hear me running) hear me running?
