The Australian government has decided to keep the interest only loans going by easing up the Banks lending. So the punter doesn't have to cough up principle. Since most of the politicians are into real estate they seem to be keeping it going a bit longer, the drops in Sydney sales has them rattled.

Weird that big drops happen before progressives take charge. It’s almost like businesses don’t have confidence in the policies that will be implemented.

Throughout history, an established power has never passively watched a rising power take its spot...
America is #2
China's rise means Loss of power and wealth. And that's something the globalists aren't going to just let happen.

America won the Cold War.....Everyone will embrace America's exceptionalism and remain submissive.

Putin came along and resuscitated the Russian bear that was on life support.

Putin is working with the Chinese,China plans to announce systems where one can directly buy and sell oil in Yuan.

Without demand for the US dollar, interest rates will go up, debt will become expensive, and interest payments on existing debt will skyrocket.

Watch for propaganda and hybrid wars against both Russia and China in the coming years.

Throughout history, an established power has never passively watched a rising power take its spot.

This is why Syria and Iran are so important to all sides of the geopolitical struggle.
Controlling the Middle East also means controlling the land and the sea routes of China's Belt.

ITs a geopolitical chessboard.

Trickle down never works...WS don't play that game!


This isn't even the in the same field of the discussion actually going on.

The Fed is using interest rates to arrest economic growth and NO ONE actually knows why.

They're trying to punish/block Trump because his tariffs and "America First" threaten the New International Economic Order the Fed's real rulers (The Rothschild cartel) support fully. They NEED the third world to receive more US dollars, to the detriment of the US itself, so those third world countries can join the developed world and become completely beholden to the banking scam. "Pay us to use your own money" is a leading indicator of a system doomed to failure where the common people are concerned.

But we can guess, or is that not allowed?


The Fed is Raising Rates Because of the Pension Crisis


www.armstrongeconomics.com...


The Fed is raising rates because they must be NORMALIZED given the pension crisis. They are trying to get them back up and if they could, they would jack them up to 8%. If you can imagine, a pension fund under normal conditions needs 8% annual. Even CalPERS came in at 7% and they were insolvent. Rates are rising because of the pension crisis, not because the economy is really heating up or the stock market is booming. The technical resistance stands at the Downtrend Line at the 3% level. Rates will double to reach that area faster than people suspect.

For the record, the Federal Reserve is a privately held corporation.

Merry Christmas eveeryone. Santa's helpers are stealing gifts from under the trees this year. The stock market is a fictional scam game that people have learned to accept. Never gamble more than you can afford to lose.

The last time I watched the market implode in 2007 it's reached a bottom right before they announced bail outs. My grandmother was afraid she was going to lose it all so she got out. She was getting letters from billionaires wanting to buy all the stock she had. I tried to talk her out of it. I asked her why are the billionaires buying? don't sell it will come back. She thought it was 1929 all over again. So many people lost their asses in 2007. My grandmother lost her entire retirement.

You know what I saw in 2007? the rich getting richer. It was a major money and land grab by the rich. All the foreclosed homes the banks got and the billionaires bought up everything they could in the stock market. We gave a trillion dollar bail out to the banks and when the market came back inflation set in and everything doubled in price. We're still paying for 2007 and if it happens again our purchasing power of the dollar will go further down the toilet.

If this implodes again and you have money to buy in and your timing is right you're going to get rich. In 2007 I watched an entire generation get robbed of their wealth.

I am with you my friend - GOOD


The Federal Reserve could 'own' this decline.

In my lifetime, which has put me into middle age by now … I have never seen the Fed as threatened as it is RIGHT NOW.

I would love to see the Federal Reserve go down. Please let it be so!

Best! Christmas! Present! Ever!!!

The irony is that the Fed raises rates when the economy is good.

The FED chief said that if the economy starts going down then he will consider NOT raising rates

He raises rates now because they're trying to get back to what they call neutral, where for the last ten years the rate was zero because of the last 2007-8-9 super recession. Neutral is As it was before the collapse of 2008. They want to get us off a zero rate addiction.

So in 2019 if the economic indicators are going bad he won’t raise rates if they stay POSITIVE HE WILL RAISE RATES
That’s what he said in his press conference

Who are the economists here, does that make sense?

How? Powell is trying to arrest growth rather than control inflation.

www.stlouisfed.org...

we've actually had low inflation in 2018 which is part of the reason why the Fed rate hikes don't make sense



Why Is Inflation So Low?
KEY TAKEAWAYS
If low inflation persists, this would raise questions about the central bank’s commitment to its inflation target and increase the risk of deflation.
The U.S. isn’t the only country facing this issue. Other developed countries are dealing with low inflation.
Technological and demographic changes may be likely reasons, although some hypotheses link low inflation to monetary policy.
