Bilderberg 2012: bigger and badder and better than ever

"There's a lot of anger in the crowd this year – a great wall of noise met each delegate as they swooped up the hotel drive. Personally, I thought the crowd was a little harsh at times: branding each new arrival "thieving scum!" when, looking at the delegate list, no more than two thirds of those arriving could reasonably be called that.

...a new name – Michael J Evans – who enjoys the elegant title: vice-chairman, global head of growth markets, Goldman Sachs.Evans will be conferencing with his esteemed colleages, James A Johnson (director of Goldman Sachs) and Peter Sutherland (chairman of Goldman Sachs International) – the last two both members of Bilderberg's Steering Group. The strong Goldman showing this year does so much to reassure me of the benign and worthwhile efforts of Bilderberg. They just want to get on and help us, quietly and secretly. Like a corporate cross between Santa Claus and a big friendly squid."

I'd say the opposite given the weekend sentiment readings here. Maybe some more bad news after a bounce when bears have reloaded laugh.gif

Anytime "elites" gather to plan my future, I'm frightened.
Perhaps well intentioned, groups like this purpose heady utopian ideas like uniting all mankind with things like the Euro and the yet to be implemented North American currency, the Amero.
One currency means one central bank with each country giving up a great measure of autonomy to the grand elite world directors, (who no doubt are pure angels with only the noblest of intentions).
The original purpose was to dilute the independent sovereignty of countries and thus discourage strong countries like Germany from ever going to war again.
Well, I don't think it ever works like they plan.

WORLD BANK: 'Far from clear leaders ready for impending catastrophe'...

You did some heavy gloom and doom lifting this weekend Rog.
But you forgot to add this X-Goldman's forecast. In case some missed it.

Now I don't have to wonder how the S&P will go below the 09 low of 666 like Mr T predicts at some point in the near future.
Or how or when one oz of Gold will buy the Dow..

A new money system is on the way, as is planned.

Let's make a deal!
Debt Has Increased More in Last 15 Months Than First 97 Congresses -- Combined!

Hi Lee48!
ZeroHedge has the best gloom and doom story ever!
Back to the cave for me.

We don’t know exactly what is to come, but we can all join the very few dots from where we are now, to the collapse of the first major bank…
With very limited room for government bailouts, we can very easily join the next dots from the first bank closure to the collapse of the whole European banking system, and then to the bankruptcy of the governments themselves.
There are almost no brakes in the system to stop this, and almost no one realises the seriousness of the situation.
The problem is not Government debt per se. The real problem is that the $70 trillion in G10 debt is the collateral for $700 trillion in derivatives…

Yes, that equates to 1200% of Global GDP and it rests on very, very weak foundations
From an EU crisis, we only have to join one dot for a UK crisis of equal magnitude.
And then do you think Japan and China would not be next?
And then do you think the US would survive unscathed?
That is the end of the fractional reserve banking system and of fiat money.

It is the big RESET.

It continues:

Bonds will be stuck at 1% in the US, Germany, UK and Japan (for this phase).
The whole bond market will be dead.
Short selling on bonds - banned
Short selling stocks – banned
CDS – banned
Short futures – banned
Put options – banned

All that is left is the Dollar and Gold

It only gets better. We use the term loosely:

We have around 6 months left of trading in Western markets to protect ourselves or make enough money to offset future losses.
Spend your time looking at the risks of custody, safekeeping, counterparty etc. Assume that no one and nothing is safe.
After that…we put on our tin helmets and hide until the new system emerges

And the punchline

From a timing perspective, I think 2012 and 2013 will usher in the end.

Didn't you know that this is an "old" law. Just like the US Constitution, it has expired, replaced by the whim of the day. dry.gif

Oh yes the old law thing, probably some secret executive order already

cancelled it.
