Paul Craig Roberts Stunning 2015 Predictions - At Any Time The West Can Collapse - King World News

Paul Craig Roberts Stunning 2015 Predictions - At Any Time The West Can Collapse - King World News | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it
"To have a bond market in which the purchasers of bonds have to pay a fee in order to have a negative real interest rate makes no sense. When you buy a bond you are automatically getting back less than you paid for it. What sense does that make when the United States' debt is exploding and when the money supply is exploding? It makes no sense at all. No American markets make any sense — they’re (all) rigged.

I think (in 2015) the world will start to see the realignment of power as it drifts away from the West toward Russia, China, India, the BRICs, and the states who ally with them such as South American countries who are tired of American imperialism. You will see a shift in the balance of power that will be unfavorable to Washington.”

El nuevo “arco de inestabilidad” europeo by Pepe Escobar

El nuevo “arco de inestabilidad” europeo by Pepe Escobar | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it
El Consejo Europeo de Relaciones Exteriores y el gabinete estratégico Friedrich Ebert Stiftung acaban de llegar más o menos a la misma conclusión:

Si el peligroso enfrentamiento entre la UE y Rusia respecto a Ucrania no se resuelve, la UE podría enfrentar, hasta 2030, una concentración militar en Europa oriental, una nueva carrera armamentista con la OTAN como protagonista y una “zona de inestabilidad” semipermanente del Báltico a los Balcanes y el Mar Negro.

Lo que esos dos grupos de expertos no reconocen –y no reconocerán jamás– es que un nuevo “arco de inestabilidad” –del Báltico al Mar Negro, como yo y otros analistas independientes hemos destacado– es exactamente lo que el imperio del caos y su brazo armado –la OTAN– postulan para impedir una integración más estrecha en Eurasia.

A propósito, el Pentágono descuella en la fabricación de “arcos de inestabilidad”. El anterior fue –y sigue siendo– masivo y se extiende del Magreb a Xinjiang en China occidental pasando por Medio Oriente y Asia Central.

Moscú ha identificado totalmente el complot. El Ministro de Exteriores Sergey Lavrov, una vez más, lo dejó bien claro, en detalle.

Y crucialmente, algunos sectores influyentes en Alemania también lo hicieron, como lo hicieron miembros de la elite cultural al destruir la noción de una nueva guerra en Europa: “No en nuestro nombre”.

Lo mismo se aplica a los que siempre predican más cooperación transatlántica, ensalzan el papel “definidor” de EE.UU. en Alemania y elogian efusivamente a Alemania como país más estadounidense en Europa; es el caso del periódico Frankfurter Allgemeine, conocido como centro del establishment político y económico en Alemania.

Todavía se encuentra en un estado embrionario y todavía no ha llevado a la Canciller Angela Merkel a ver la verdad, pero una reingeniería de procesos de las relaciones atlantistas ya está en progreso en Alemania. La guerra de SWIFT.

Putin's Grasp of, and Response to, Western Moves Are Impeccable - Pepe Escobar Russia Insider

Putin's Grasp of, and Response to, Western Moves Are Impeccable - Pepe Escobar Russia Insider | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it
Even facing what under any circumstances is a perfect storm; President Putin delivered an extremely measured performance at his annual press conference and Q&A marathon.

The perfect storm evolves in two fronts; an overt economic war – as in siege by sanctions - and a concerted, covert, shadow attack to the heart of the Russian economy.

Washington’s endgame is clear: impoverish and defang the adversary and force him to meekly bow to the ‘Empire of Chaos’s’ whims. And bragging about it all the way to “victory.”

The problem is Moscow happens to have impeccably deciphered the game – even before Putin, at the Valdai Club in October, pinned down the Obama doctrine as “our Western partners” working as practitioners of the “theory of controlled chaos.”

Saker: Ukrainian Nazis and Chechen Wahabis now appear to be working together

Saker: Ukrainian Nazis and Chechen Wahabis now appear to be working together | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it
Interesting news this morning: Khasan Zakaev, one of the terrorist which organized and executed the 2002 attack against the Dubrovka theater in Moscow and an aid to Shamil Basaev was arrested in Crimea when he tried to enter from the Ukraine with false documents.

Khasan Zakaev
I very much doubt that Zakaev wanted to visit Crimea to enjoy the beautiful sights, sample the local cuisine or to relax on the seashore. Not coming from the Ukraine. Not with fake documents. In fact, I would argue that it is pretty darn obvious that if he took the huge risk of entering not just any Russian territory, but a highly monitored and secured one, he was there on a mission.

Considering the quasi-official Ukrainian support for Wahabism in Chechnia, it is also superlatively likely that the SBU knew about this mission and, at the very least, gave its tacit support for it. After all, since members of the Ukrainian Rada did openly support the recent terrorist operation in Grozny, and since a former commander of the Azov death squad and now Member of the Rada openly called for the murder of Ramzan Kadyrov, it only makes sense for the Ukrainian Nazis to be sending Chechen Wahabis into Russia to commit more terrorist attacks.

Mandatory »» Sergei Glaziev: stupidity is worse than theft | Saif al Islam | Scoop.it
Why did the Central Bank raise the interest rate and let the ruble flow? Author: Sergei Glazyev, academic RAS (Russian Academy of Sciences)

Another increase in key interest rates on loans issued by the Bank of Russia, for the purpose of refinancing commercial banks, made loans completely inaccessible for the majority of enterprises of the real sector of the economy. When the average profitability of the manufacturing industry is 7.5-8%, credit issued at rates of 10% or higher cannot be used by most businesses, either for investment or for replenishing working capital. Such decisions cut off the real economy, with the exception of some sectors of the oil, gas, and chemical-metallurgical sector, from credit issued by the State.

Prior to that, the consumer lending boom drove millions of citizens into a 10-trillion ruble debt and the real economy lost the savings of the population, becoming a net debtor. Also, the Government withdrew pension savings from the economy. Sanctions imposed by NATO countries deprive the economy of the bulk of external credit. Most businesses have only their own funds to finance working capital and investments, which is clearly not enough to provide even simple reproduction, never mind an expanded one. The amount of profit of enterprises this year (taking into account the fall in the prices of export goods) will be no more than 10% of the required rate of investment of 25-30% of GDP. It’s no surprise that as a result of such decisions amidst the economic recovery in almost all countries of the world this year, Russia is experiencing an unexpected decline in investment and production.

According to the Central Bank’s report, On the key rate of the Bank of Russia, October 31, 2014, its decision to raise interest rates was made because of external circumstances: “In September-October the external environment has changed significantly: oil prices dropped significantly while there has been a tightening of sanctions imposed by individual countries to a number of large Russian companies. The ruble has been weakening in this environment, which, against the backdrop of August’s restrictions on import of certain food products, led to a further acceleration of growth of consumer prices”. To support its previous decision to raise interest rates, the Central Bank argued that “inflationary risks had increased, including rising geopolitical tensions and their possible impact on the dynamics of the course of the national currency, as well as changes in the tax and tariff policy.” In the same policy statement, the Central Bank explained its decision to raise interest rates by “a stronger than expected effect of exchange rate dynamics on consumer prices, rising inflation expectations, as well as the unfavorable trends in the market for certain goods.”
