Europe Proposes Confiscating Gold, Cash, Bitcoin, And Prepaid Cards To Fight “Terrorist Financing” "Following exceedingly unpopular moves by China and India, the European Commission has now proposed to tighten controls on cash and precious metals — going so far as to allow confiscations of gold and assets — of anyone even believed to be associated with terrorism or terrorists.

These confiscations and strictures around personal wealth would be part of the European Union’s “action plan against terrorist financing,” proposed following the terrorist attacks on Paris in November 2015 — except the impetus to apply the measures came when a truck plowed through a bustling Christmas market in Berlin on December 19, killing 12 people and injuring scores more.

It appears the Commission surreptitiously proposed tighter controls on cash and precious metals after the market attack but in just before the holidays — possibly to avoid an acrimonious backlash." http://www.activistpost.com/2016/12/europe-proposes-confiscating-gold-cash-bitcoin-prepaid-cards-fight-terrorist-financing.html #Bitcoin #Europe #PreciousMetals #Terrorism #Cash #PrepaidCardshttp://www.activistpost.com/2016/12/europe-proposes-confiscating-gold-cash-bitcoin-prepaid-cards-fight-terrorist-financing.html

Italy referendum result could send shockwaves through EU



THE EU’s days might be numbered with Italy about to vote on a referendum which could send shockwaves across the continent.

Analysts believe the outcome of the #ballot on constitutional #reform could have massive #global implications. Ana Thaker, a market economist at PhillipCapital said the #Italian result could be as "significant as #Brexit”.

With many #European leaders already coming under severe pressure from #anti-EU parties ahead of #elections next year the significance of the Italian result is huge.

Defeat for Italian Prime Minister #MatteoRenzi could lead to even deeper social turmoil in countries already struggling with #austerity, #immigration problems and a growing #contempt for #Brussels.

Maria Paola Toschi, global market strategist at JP Morgan Asset Management told CNBC: "The upcoming Italian #referendum this December may create volatility across markets as the year draws to a close."

Ms Toschi said the referendum is widely considered as political test for #Italy and its leader Matteo #Renzi.

She said: "A victory for #Yes could reinforce the empowerment of the current coalition on an ambitious program of reforms.

"A victory of #No could open a period of uncertainty on the political stability of the current coalition that has been always strongly committed on reforms."

Mr Renzi has vowed to resign and abandon politics if the constitutional reforms were not passed and opponents appear to have seized on what they see as an #opportunity to oust him and press ahead with their own populist #anti-EU agendas.

The Keynesian Endpoint



The Keynesian endpoint is when the entirety of government tax revenues has to be used for paying interest on the public debt. At this point a sovereign feels compelled to monetize an exponentially increasing debt load and/or default.

Just days after the German government advised citizens to stock up on food and water, the Czech government has followed suit.

Europe is coming apart at the seams and there seems to be nothing that the governments can do about it. They’re giving fair warning: the citizens will be obligated to provide for their own needs.

Jeudi 14 avril : occupons le festival comique de la finance !

Ce festival humoristique #Ethique ou #Conduct : pour une culture de la responsabilité, aura en vedette américaine, Jean-Claude #Trichet, ancien directeur de la #Banquecentraleeuropéenne qui continue de semer la misère en #Europe. En guest star féminine, Laurence #Parisot, ancienne présidente du #Medef qui veut rendre le CDI jetable à tout moment. Et en spécialiste du pantouflage aller-retour, François #Villeroy de #Galhau, ancien Inspecteur des finances, #ex-DG de #BNP Paribas et actuel patron de la Banque de #France. Le clou de la matinée, sobrement intitulé « Propos conclusifs », sera bien sûr le sketch de Frédéric #Oudéa, directeur de la Société générale empêtrée dans le scandale des #PanamaPapers ».

Les titres des autres sketches promettent une matinée désopilante : « éthique et bonne conduite dans la banque et la finance », « conciliation entre rentabilité et responsabilité », « la culture de l’éthique, premier facteur de confiance ». Au lendemain d’une nouvelle nuit debout intense et riche en échanges, nous aurions aimé nous détendre ce jeudi matin en si bonne compagnie. Mais nos banquiers humoristes, s’ils débordent d’imagination, veulent apparemment rigoler entre eux car ils ont fixé l’entrée à 600 €.

Or chacun de nous a déjà payé plus de 600 € cette année à cause de l’évasion fiscale organisée par nos banquiers humoristes. Car 60 à 80 milliards évadés, c’est 1 000 € pour chacun·e des 65 millions de Français·es ! Nous ne laisserons pas privatiser ce spectacle, nous voulons aussi une tranche de rire et nous appelons à occuper ce festival comique jeudi 14 avril.

Rendez-vous devant la Fédération Bancaire Française, au 18 rue La Fayette, Paris 9e.

Venez avec votre bonne humeur, vos meilleures blagues sur la finance, habillés en clowns. Un concours de slogans humoristiques sera organisé avec de magnifiques prix. Des humoristes de métier, dont Christophe Alévêque, seront présents pour défendre leur profession contre sa privatisation par les banquiers

EU plans to destroy net neutrality by allowing Internet fast lanes



A two-tier Internet will be created in Europe as the result of a late-night "compromise" between the European Commission, European Parliament and the EU Council.



The so-called "trilogue" meeting to reconcile the different positions of the three main EU institutions saw telecom companies gaining the right to offer "specialised services" on the Internet. These premium services will create a fast lane on the Internet and thus destroy net neutrality, which requires that equivalent traffic is treated in the same way.

EU plans to destroy net neutrality by allowing Internet fast lanes

Potentially a big defeat for EU internet users, online startups and future innovation.

Tumbling Interest Rates in #Europe Leaves Some Banks Owing #Money on Loans to Borrowers



source: http://www.wsj.com/articles/as-interest-benchmarks-go-negative-banks-may-have-to-pay-borrowers-1428939338
At least one Spanish bank, Bankinter SA, the country’s seventh-largest lender by market value, has been paying some customers interest on mortgages by deducting that amount from the principal the borrower owes.

The problem is just one of many challenges caused by interest rates falling below zero, known as a negative interest rate. All over Europe, banks are being compelled to rebuild computer programs, update legal documents and redo spreadsheets to account for negative rates.
...
“I’m going to frame my bank statement, which shows that Bankinter is paying me interest on my mortgage,” said a #customer who lives in #Madrid. “That’s financial #history.”

WSJ: Tumbling Interest Rates in Europe Leaves Some Banks Owing Money on Loans to Borrowers (Patricia Kowsmann)

Tumbling interest rates in Europe have put some banks in an inconceivable position: owing money on loans to borrowers. At least one Spanish bank, Bankinter SA, the country's seventh-largest lender by market value, has been paying some customers interest on mortgages by deducting that amount from the principal the borrower owes.

The following compilation of articles, reports and press releases from official sources was undertaken by Rick Rozoff, published on Stop NATO.

We have highlighted relevant sections. What this review confirms is that the #US and its NATO allies are on an active war footing. #US-NATO military exercises, training and planning are being regularly conducted on Russia’s doorstep in Eastern #Europe, the #Black #Sea basins and the #Baltic states.

Whereas Russia is not mentioned, these various military initiatives and “defensive” war games threaten the #Russian #Federation.

They involve the participation of troops from several NATO and NATO partner countries.

What these articles and reports suggest is that #Washington is anxious to mobilize military forces within NATO and NATO partner countries without the need to deploy a large number of US troops. ...
