This is what happens when we don't prosecute fraud and regulate Wall Street after the 2008 crisis, all we did is kick the can down the road and now its catching up to us.

How do 'we' prosecute fraud when many of these things are legal.

The Federal Reserve is legal right?

Well the constitution says America isn't supposed to have a central banking system. So no it's not legal.

A lot of crimes were settled out of court for pennies on the dollar due to corruption and the revolving door.

Maybe not legal?

Congress chartered the Federal Reserve.

Can you quote where the Constitution says America isn't supposed to have a central banking system?

I hope you're right.

I'm sure you are correct.

Can you post a few examples?

This will help your argument.

To coin money, regulate the value thereof


Well I suppose they could use the nitpicking argument that the US Mint still produces all the coins. I'm sure the Treasury and the Fed could muster a thousand lawyers to argue on that technicality.

See if you can find one or two "unconstitutional" things in the law....


Federal Reserve Act


1. Issuance of Federal Reserve notes; nature of obligation; where redeemable


Finders Keepers.

Prosecutions for the Olympian wealth grab that reached its peak 2008 have been the usual theatrics produced by the same people who twist the telling of all such important matters. I hate to try and characterize them because it usually compels me to use lengthy made up hyphenated words (like: the Cabbalistic-Wallstreet-Quasi-Governmental-Bernaysian-Technocratic-class.)

Settling a legal action with the government was never meant to be a principle tool of governance. But money begets money, and the will of the opportunist is weaker than an apologetically offered "admission of no guilt, with immunity from further prosecution."

The derivatives market is a loaded weapon pointed at any nation who still believes these people have a "right" to demand money for nothing... but not like the welfare cases you hear appropriately comfortable people complaining about... these transnational (actually supranational) financial institutions actually affirm they have a right to a slice of every single dollar, every pound, every mark... is anyone even paying attention to that anymore??

Actually, no. The interpretation of the US Constitutions is every citizen's domain... you do not need extraordinary experience nor credentials to merit making the case that the intention was for the economy of the nation to lay with the people, not some private (or "quasi"-governmental) agency without any meaningful oversight or responsibility to the people; and certainly not for commercial profit to a monopoly on currency (let alone interest rates.)

Interest rates will be going up if this happens, and I mean way up, and your bonds will be worth squat.

When interest rates go up it will cause all the interest rate derivatives to blow up all at once. Just the interest rate derivatives are somewhere over 44 trillion, and when those blow up it will likely trigger a chain reaction affecting other derivatves like CDO and CDS and the entire 1.2 quadrillion global derivatives market. This is many times the size of the global economy and will make last financial crisis pale in comparison. It is so huge there is no telling how they will try to fix this, but it is safe to say most investments and bonds for average people that aren't connected will be toast.

This may come as a shock to you but just because they have the word Federal in the title it doesn't mean they are part of the government. The Federal reserve is a much a government agency as Fedex. And as far as it being legal have you ever heard of a politician named Ron Paul?

i'm so glad i don't have to worry about any of this. i lead a pretty simply life. if i need to i can always find something to eat. kill it. clean it. and bring it home and see what the road kill cook book has to offer! maybe a giant planetary finanacial melt down would be good. it would help us realise that all these financial "problems" are caused by people who work in the finance industry anyway. as a matter of fact seeing the stock market crash right now would be totally awesome. the mid terms being this year. it would be almost as awesome as seeing an asteroid impact in brussels, belgium. almost !
