welcome to the kaiser report i'm max kaiser you know apparently it takes one point three million liters of water to make a liter of water that's right the litter of water that you purchased down there at the shop it requires one point three nine liters of water in the whole process of getting the water manufactured in water distributing the water consuming the water to get that one liter of water it's called the economics of suicide yes humans are frickin stupid but even that's not as idiotic as when we try to create one unit of g.d.p. growth get this sense to collapse and leave. estimate that it has taken eighteen dollars of debt to create one dollar of g.d.p. growth it's called stall speed. made the suckers go. says.
max the first article here that we're going to discuss shows you chart form this stall speed of which you speak paul brodsky the fed is holding a burning match the burning match can be seen in these two charts first up the orange line there is total u.s. credit since one thousand nine hundred three you can see that it's divorced from the blue line which is nominal g.d.p. and the gray line at the bottom is base money supply so either one of those two has to increase either the nominal g.d.p. or the base money supply in order to collateralize that orange line of debt going up the second is total u.s. credit to u.s. nominal g.d.p. and that puts all those charts for the first one into one chart and you can see the stall speed so we've hit a point where no debt is not creating anything yet this is really the amazing charts here the clearly demonstrate this economic problem is that no matter how
much large jess is given to these banks in the form of free money from the central banks they are on able to lend it out into the economy in sufficient quantities to generate any g.d.p. growth and that number's always been a bit skewed sense the world what off a gold standard on to a currency standard just one hundred seventy one but going back to one hundred seventy one so you need a that's on about one to two dollars of debt to create one dollar of g.d.p. growth then right before the crisis of two thousand and eight it required seven dollars of debt to create one dollar of g.d.p. growth then the reaction to the crisis in two thousand and eight was to flood the world with debt and they flooded the world with eighteen dollars worth of debt for one dollar of g.d.p. growth which is to say that. they don't get any g.d.p. growth at all really but they're just keep flooding the system with debt and the debt is suppressing g.d.p. growth the money creation as i've said on the show many times before the money
printing is creating a net effect of deflation that's what g.d.p. collapse is all about your prices some prices are going up but not as fast as the implosion of the banks the shadow banks the zombie banks are causing the stall speed as you point out stall speed and when they hit stall speed you up there are thirty thousand feet or what have you and then boom do gravity takes effect what do you do when you hit stall speed if you're the head of an empire or the head of the central bank of the united states the federal reserve bank what do you do well if you can't grow the economy on principle they're against it anyway right they're against people having any sort of wealth of their own so they've got to steal it don't they because the fundamental disconnect today is unnatural clearing levels prices of goods services and assets that do not reflect society's sustainable needs wants and preferences so over time the natural cycle of an economy is that prices
will decline but in a finance based economy central banks and heads of state don't like that they want always inflation so you see global monetary authorities have sought price stability which in practice implies the need for constant price inflation to offset what what would otherwise be naturally occurring price deflation indeed price stability has become a bipartisan socially acceptable euphemism for consistent policy administered credit and price inflation functionally the dominion of currencies purchasing power and they provide a chart for this this is c.p.i. from one nine hundred ten to the present and as you can see it's been declining and down fifty nine percent max since one thousand nine hundred three all right bring up a couple of different things there there's one deflation in this context is. the idea that the government can print money to. inflation is an attempt to try to inflate debt a way that's their intention but that's not happening in fact that's exacerbating
the debt accumulation the more money they print they're not getting the inflation that they hoped they would get that would diminish the debt actually they're increasing the debt load the debt load is going ire both the nominal in real terms because g.d.p. as reporting out is also shrinking so debt as a percentage of g.d.p. is going higher debt in nominal terms is going higher debt is just keep going higher and higher and if it does stall speed there's no policies or saying there's no policy there's no monetary policy there's no fiscal policy that can be implemented that can rectify this fact that the engines on the plane at thirty thousand feet have stalled and now we're getting ready for heading down into a crash landing nothing can stop the crash land i mean more court and so it's going to take the bank of england belgium from fortunately it pounds the none trillion pounds in an attempt to keep the plane there's no way engines running at this point in the air for a little while longer that may word for another few months but ultimately within
the next twelve months it's going to crash well i mean this c.p.i. chart shows that this is a form of theft as well by the way inflation is a former theft from the people remember i said this is if they they've hit stall speed what do they have to do they have to steal it so as they point out here the rate of currency dilution has exceeded the rate of production growth so by every single trick every single idea they could come up with they're losing they're falling further behind now regarding this stealing from work and labor and savings the economist points out labor pains all around the world labor is losing out to capital and you see a chart here this is labor costs as a percentage of nominal g.d.p. the line at the bottom there is mexico and there. they have lost the most appalling labor share implies that productivity gains no longer translate into broad rises and pay instead an ever larger share of the benefits of growth accrues to owners of
capital the amount of money being created does have an effect on c.p.i. or you know what people associate inflation being that the consumer price index is and over the past forty years you have situations where the c.p.i. is running at a rate that's higher than the rate of debt accumulation but over the past five or six years we only have had one statistic and that is that debt is growing faster than either c.p.i. or g.d.p. or wage inflation there's only one thing growing and that is debt so and this is rare throughout the history of america and the united kingdom very rarely i would say probably never in the history of these two countries have you had a straight seven years now of debt and money printing accumulation that hasn't generated any uptick in g.d.p. at all i remember when the u.k. and the u.s. say that their g.d.p.
is positive it's because they're understanding that inflation number if they use the actual inflation number of stuff that people actually buy day to day food and energy it would be negative right now well they're cutting the increase in debt they're just counting as g.d.p. at this point and from that first chart i showed you you saw that the debt credit is rising but it's doing nothing at all to nominal g.d.p. it's doing nothing just recap this for a second what we're saying here is that this is a rare situation in the u.s. economy and it's being replicated around the world that the debt is guy rocketing and it's not having any effect whatsoever on g.d.p. or inflation or wages there have been times in the past under a theory let's say keynesian theory let's say paul krugman for example paul krugman in the new york times believe five years ago that if you simply double or triple. quadrupled the debt in america you get some g.d.p. growth he's been discredited he's been proven wrong he's been proven a charlatan whereas guys who don't follow that particular school of thought have
been proven correct that's the article in the economist about labor not increasing their wages as pointing out that productivity gains have been huge and the time that their their actual share of it has declined as a new a futile sort of system. or a great big game are paying prisoners a dollar a day to do eight or ten or twelve hours of work per day they're the most productive workers of america or the prison population and the policy makers in washington want to turn the whole population into a prison population and then they'd have said look there's so productive really printable a dollar a day look at all these license plates that they're going to stamp who. don't tell marketing people to point a lot of tickets and go to the casinos and blow their want of cash there so productive well let's go back to how the fed and the banking system the finance system has to steal and we're going to stay in the ponzi scheme lap and part of the n.s.a. scandal i think is by the way about that mostly about that is about them stealing corporate secrets from everybody else in the world but let's look at
a story here cartel traders advised banks three currency dealers linked to a global investigation into alleged rigging of foreign exchange markets advised the bank of england on the fallout from the euro zone crisis max so these bankers names ramchandra citi group trader richard j.p. morgan executive neil o'riordan of u.b.s. are all members of an influential committee appointed by the bank to provide intelligence on the currency markets and they've been implicated now at reagan global four x. markets a five point three trillion dollars per day market that's also deflationary in other words we're money is being stolen so there's less money around those deflationary why are they committing these frauds because there's no grown. in their industry banking to sustain their bonuses so at the end of the year that got to go steal the bonuses these people are engaged in embezzlement is it different
than the embezzlement that jamie diamond was involved with m.f. global member and stole billions of the creditors in the completely legal fashion then they retroactively went back and they changed the law and said well we were able to reverse the rotation of the planet earth and going backwards in time we've decided he didn't break the law because those were laws that we were thinking about making at the time we didn't get around to it therefore he's innocent by virtue of time travel that's his defense and of course this is what all the bankers do i know myself i that worked out last year whenever you break the law it's always the fact that you know what it's going to break the law is the law as of been catching up to all my innovation as a financial engineer now finally max talked at the top of the show how it takes one point three nine leaders of water to make a leader of water or eighteen dollars of debt to create one dollar in g.d.p. growth now we see the opposite the same sort of situation happening in the rest of the world the internet has provided a great g.d.p. global g.d.p. and efficiency and all sorts of productivity gains but now we're seeing the break up of it and countries like brazil are going to spend enormous amounts of create an
alternate internet essentially they're going to create basically spend seventy five cents to keep the u.s. from stealing a dollar's worth of corporate secrets n.s.a. surveillance may cause a break up of internet warrants experts internet specialists highlight lose by brazil germany and india towards creating separate networks in order to block spying and they speak to some experts ian brown from oxford institute and he says that states may have few other options than to follow in brazil's past this would be expensive and likely reduce the rapid rate of innovation that has driven the development of the internet to date but if states cannot trust that their citizens personal data as well as sensitive commercial and government information will not otherwise be swept up by giant surveillance operations that may be a price they are willing to pay of course brazil's finance minister calling the phrase currency war as. the record says first you have currency war then you have trade war then you have a hot war same thing happened pre world war one three world war two hello world war three days ever think about bringing guys report thank you max states over this i
can have a whole lot more. moments . leading up to something that is quite simply. was no way over. clearly they were just at the wrong place at the wrong time. and sold to the us or turned over to the us for. the soul the birth the law i. was saved with great effort. and they wanted to turn me into a terrorist so it was a one on me to admit that i was a member of al qaeda i'm the taliban that i fought with them. about time i didn't
even know what al qaeda is nevertheless there are people. brave enough to start a fight. something's going to be done that's going to be done by me never short of money but it's going to impact me i'd be prosecuted but it's going to impact. a wife my daughter. the one time a trap. on our teeth. with . more news today. and these are the images called world has been seeing
from the streets of canada. showing corporations to rule today. welcome back to the kaiser report imax keyser time that in los angeles to speak with wolf rector of testosterone dot com wolf welcome back to the kaiser report. you know max thanks for having me all of being on your show tonight wolf rector how is the federal reserve like dancing chickens. well that story goes back to a movie called country war two characters the main character dusty and his buddy we're talking it's a buddy of us telling this story about a. guy who's saying was to get chickens to dance at
a carnival and come to find out he had one hand on the stage and the hand on the burner and heating up the chicken heating up the stage and when the chickens when their feet got so hot that they couldn't stand it anymore they started dancing yeah i remember back in time square back in the one nine hundred seventy s. they used to have dancing seconds and they outside on the street and these little kiosks you worked on an electric hot plate you put in a quarter and the electricity would go through into the feed of the chicken and they would start dancing but you're saying that the dancing chicken syndrome applies to the federal reserve bank i said what you're saying is that they've just got to keep feeding it more quarter they got to keep printing more money they've got to keep this to condensing that's right and it's actually. the feds turning on the heat underneath the chicken and so. the issue with the chickens is they don't jump off the stage and not smart enough to jump off the stage so ben bernanke is counting on it that we're not jumping up that states and of course. if your feet
get to jump off the stage do something different and so ben bernanke you with his sir policies and and. lawyer for it to reduce interest rates long and short term to near zero has made life very miserable for a lot of. people that depend on it depend on income for many life insurance companies and other organizations pension funds social security. and continues to do so and nobody's jumping off the stage ok so this is actually to keep on the zoological theme here are a variation on the frog in the boiled water there aim where they keep turning up the heat but the frog doesn't jump any bulls themselves to death that's another variation so the fed policies are essentially killing us now zero heads estimates that central banks around the world have created eighteen trillion in debt since the lehman collapse but managed to generate only one trillion in g.d.p.
growth this is the most lopsided debt to g.d.p. growth number ever seen in any economy ever in history your thoughts well that is certainly true and it's a big issue there are two elements two big there are really three elements and it on the consumer side consumers actually marginally reduce that debt just a tiny bit but governments and corporations have dramatically increased debt and terms of corporations obviously they they haven't done anything productive with them they're buying back shares they're paying dividends the share buybacks pay mostly for the shares that they have issues to recently to acquire companies and pay a corporate. executive benefit plans and so it doesn't go back to that corporate debt didn't go into building factories or appliance or infrastructure it went into wall street engineering and it didn't produce any
results as we can see. and on the government side they have obviously borrowed a huge amount of money but as we have seen in japan for example the biggest bar of them all they have had a very lackadaisical economy for many many years and they have been. part forty to fifty percent of their entire budget expenditures every year and it's the most gigantic stimulus package ever and the economy just hasn't really grown yet oh that sounds about right yeah there was a great editorial incident in this week's often has a time to said that it's all you downsize the financial sector they won't get any g.d.p. growth because the too big to fail banks of the united kingdom in the united states there are just zombie banks are gobbling up all this money and they're returning growth they're keeping a lid on growth and until you get rid of them you won't have any growth now the n.s.a. spying scandal when it emerged it was revealed that national spy agency across the world are actually spying on behalf of the n.s.a.
is this the same case for central banks are the bank of england and the e.c.b. working in effect for the fed wolf well that's an excellent question i wish i or i said he won the fed someplace to judge you know they are there to transfer but one thing we know for sure. who the fed is working for the fed is working for the companies that own it and the fed the federal reserve system the united states is owned by private companies and they run it and so the fed will do what what's best for these companies and includes goldman sachs and all the big banks around the country and some institutions like general electric and this family also and iran and so whether the other central banks work for the fed i'm not sure but they're all working together that's for certain well all of this if you listen let me point out something here because in the united states they just went through all big wrangle on raising the debt ceiling and now they
go through the same thing in a few weeks time they want to raise up seventeen trillion and beyond simultaneously mark carney the new chair at the bank of england said that he's going to expand the bank of england's by. and see it from something around four trillion pounds to nine trillion pounds so is that obvious that that this whole debt ceiling debate united states is the off draft is going to be dumped into the bank of a move the bank of bangladesh die going to be a toxic waste risk dump and one of the primary beneficiary of that will be the federal reserve bank of america which if they have trouble getting through that debt ceiling there is going to dump the debt on the bank of england's balance sheet and of course the bank of england and the u.k. is the worst regulatory environment in the world where most of the financial fraud and financial terrorism takes place so they always see though an exact correlation between debt ceiling bank of england total collusion these bankers are completely
working for themselves have nothing to do of generating g.d.p. it's a complete fraud your thoughts. i totally agree and that is there are colluding . if one central bank ever stops printing money and buying crappy bonds another wall will pick up the pace and right now of course the fed stopped buying and printing the bank of japan has jumped and big time. e.c.b. has backed off just a little bit in the bank of anyone is no contemplating further expansion is there so yeah i mean it's it's if one bank just one central bank slows down a little bit the other won't pick up the pace of their colluding they're all sitting together in conference to this. bank of international settlement on its board all the major central banks central bankers so there are definitely clothing on these issues i would imagine if i'm looking at this in terms of connecting the
dots between the fraud between the central banks my guess is that the next economy to have a massive social unrest problem will be the united kingdom and mark carney will be forced to climb down from this nine trillion dollar debt assumption that he's put forward into the public domain when there's blood in the streets and then that debt which would have been on the bank of england's balanchine will be a part somewhere else and as you point out the top of the show is the dancing to consent room or the boiled frog syndrome the public's being lall into a state of perpetual surveillance of martial law by the central banks to hide debt bought my question to you is what do you think about my guess that the next outbreak of blood in the street for bankers will be the united kingdom your thoughts. well i hope not. i don't want to see blood in the streets anymore right now or seeing blood in the streets and france i went in there with it
well if i must i must interject there because the economist magazine last year ran something called the social cohesion index which is. in attempt to figure out where the social unrest where the blood in the street will happen next so these bankers are banking on blood in the streets they've got contracts based on blood in the streets their entire raise on debt is based on creating blood of the streets so why should we not be in the game of trying to second guess where they next will attack what's the big deal they want the blood the streets they profit from the blood in the streets so why are we so hesitant about calling them out on it they want the blood of the streets right here in the u.k. because they profit from it so let's be honest about it let's be honest well why are we hesitated grandma's wolf your thoughts. i hate to predict the future like that and i can definitely see blood in the streets we are seeing blood in the streets right now and and it could very well be in the u.k.
it's more dependent on finance and any other major country so if there is a big problem there. and it's likely that there will be i can i can say all right wolf let's talk about the economic fallout from the n.s.a. spying has put a halt to the latest trade pact with the u.s. china has halted purchases of u.s. tech products what sort of losses are we looking at for the u.s. economy as a whole as a result of these n.s.a. spying revelations from snowden on in the tech sector i think there will be there will be major repercussions and i am for example already announced that sales of hardware in china have collapsed by fifty percent last quarter so there will be so we already know in the united states that chinese manufacturer huawei have telecom equipment has been banned. that can sell telecom equipment in the u.s. simply because of their spying equipment built into their systems so the question
is what are companies and governments going to buy to to run their infrastructure and they have to buy. some more so if they don't buy from i.b.m. who else are they going to buy from there's chinese manufacturers the european manufacturers. the question is who can produce what these american companies are producing and some of them have competition overseas and some don't so oracle has competition over seas. you know apple has competition over seas some other companies may not be microsoft you know with its windows software system as a backdoor and communicates with the n.s.a. but what what options g.s. corp emmett's owns it isn't the obvious option to go to open source this is why you have companies like redhat which is based on the open source technology from linux which was took the internet by storm a few years ago it's now running most of the backbone of the internet wasn't china
just say we don't want proprietary code from i.b.m. anymore it's full of bugs and full of warm buffet coersion style banking terrorism we're just going to create open source technology want a lot of these countries go open source and they're doing that the problem there is that linux too has a back door and there's a sign the security kernel for for that program many years ago and it was incorporated that manager of linux is that it's not hidden that you can see the code so if you're an expert programmer you can see it and you can deal with it now i.b.m. is selling linux servers and they're there in partnership with wreckage and they're selling linux service but those have crashed sales are very important point wolf is that even linux has a back door with the n.s.a. but it does have some transparency attached to it that's a very interesting point listen well for it to run a time we'll have to have it on again soon thanks for being on the kaiser report thank you max. and that's going to do it for this edition of the guys report with
me max keiser and stacy herbert i'd like to thank our guest wall for a drive to stand strong dot com if you'd like to get in touch tweet us at kaiser report until next time ask how does one buy off. margy dot com is launching a special project to mark the appalling scale of violence in iraq. we want you to know. exactly what happened there i don't know but a woman got killed. piers later is when i got arrested for
a crime i did not do. we have numerous cases where police officers lie about polygraph results. innocent people taking shots at police officers don't beat people anymore i mean it just doesn't happen really. in the course of interrogation why because there's been this is like meant no because the psychological techniques are more effective in obtaining confessions than physical abuse and they were they could get what they wanted they could say what they wanted and there was no evidence of what they did or what they said. right from the scene. first trip. and i think picture.
was. britain's turn to explain the country's intelligence chiefs face public questioning on just how close they were to america's spy agency and its notorious intrusions worldwide plus it's not only the u.k. on the streets in these three other allies joining the spy team keeping tabs on all corners of the globe. we report. on how gods are kept compliant imprison this. former detainee tells us of torture so intricate it was practically custom and. the torch take selfies. goes into albeit the head of a geek spy school.
