IMF Economists: ‘We Were Wrong.’ Will Someone Please Tell The Press And The Politicians.

Two economists at the International Monetary Fund published a paper (The Chicago Plan Revisited) saying that fractional reserve banking causes most of our economic woes and that removing it would increase our GDP by 10%. This is according to the mathematical models the IMF has of our economy. The Chicago Plan was first published on March 16, 1933 by 8 economists including Irving Fisher. Its main proposals were to end fractional reserve banking and to dramatically reduce government debt.

Instead of listening to Fisher President Roosevelt confiscated gold which handed bankers an immediate 75% profit. FDR did meet with John Maynard Keynes but was not intellectually equipped to understand a word he said. Keynes wanted FDR to spend more on public works and less in direct relief because of the multiplier affect of investment as opposed to transfer payments. FDR chose to spend more in swing states like Pennsylvania and California accounting for the mass starvation in the solidly Democratic states. FDR also chose to listen to Bernard Baruch and Hans Morgenthau. For example, he paid cotton farmers to not plant cotton to drive the price up. The land owners pocketed the federal money and kicked the sharecroppers off the land. This in part created the Dust Bowl and led to the death by starvation of many of the displaced Okies (Oklahoma sharecroppers). The demographer Borisov says between 3 and 7 million Americans died of starvation while Roosevelt was in office. The worst part of the Depression did not start until the British devalued the pound on September 21, 1931.

Under a fractional reserve banking system, a privately owned bank can lend out ten, twenty or even thirty dollars for every dollar on deposit.  If Mrs Smith deposits $1,000 in her account, her banker can loan out $10,000 or more dollars. This adds $10,000 to total demand for goods and services thus distorting the economy on the way up in a credit or business cycle. We get a lot of malinvestment in the boom years as businessmen and home buyers do not see the underlying problem of the fractional reserve credit cycle. When the man who borrowed $10,000 pays the money back plus the $1,000 interest, the banker subtracts $10,000 from the Money Supply and adds $1,000 to his profits ledger. The problems are that paying back debts (also known as deleveraging)  destroys money and in sufficient numbers first leads to a recession and then to a Depression. And finally there is the problem of the 11th marble. The borrower was loaned ten dollars but had to pay back 11. That extra dollar had to come from someone else getting a loan to create the money he needed to pay back his loan plus interest.

Professor Steve Keen has proven that an increasing level of public and private debt leads to higher unemployment and lower wages. This perfectly describes America for the past 40 years.

Irving Fisher’s plan was to reduce government debt and to eliminate fractional reserve banking. In the Notes below I explain my plans to make government debt at the federal, state and local levels illegal and to cancel a lot of private debt as well. Professor Keen wants to cut $20,000 from every adult’s debts. I agree but would limit it to citizens. And I have much better funding sources. I also would credit $20,000 to retirement for those without debts, And allow it to be used as a down payment for first time home buyers.

Those two IMF economists listed the following as proven  benefits from ending fractional reserve banking.

1) It would reduce business cycle fluctuations.

2) It would completely eliminate bank runs.

3) It would dramatically reduce government debt. (Please note the works of Rogoff and Reinhard who proves that all governments default after debt to GDP reaches 90%.)

4) It would dramatically reduce private debt as money creation no longer requires simultaneous debt creation. (As I said, Professor Keen and I both want to cancel a lot of private debt as well. But I would take it from the tens of trillions of dollars stolen from us by the bankers.

Notes: I would like to suggest the following as the most feasible means of seizing the tens of trillions of dollars stolen from us by the bankers:

I have decided to share two of the visions I had as a child. When I was eight, I had a vision of a future war that killed 99.5% of the world's population. When I was 16 and living in the projects, I had a vision of my future. I was to live in complete obscurity until it came time to stop WW III. When I was about ten, I had read a bio of Nikita Khrushchev which said he survived Stalin by playing the bumbling fool an old Russian peasant trick. I decided to do the same as I had already learned that we did not live in a democracy. The other vision I had when I was in third grade was of the Mind of God and how it interacted in the creation of the world we see. I believe you and I were born at this time precisely so we would have an opportunity to stop this war. As for my personal info, I grew up on military bases and in housing projects. My legs atrophied from starvation as a child. My second step-father died in prison. I used to have to rub my skin to simulate human contact. They did not feed me when I was a child. I do not fight in their wars as an adult.

    interesting trivia : Irving Fisher was tapped for Yales’ Skull and Bones (1888), and was a founding member of the American Eugenics Society. Not saying Roosevelt was a saint.
    These people are all creepy as hell.

      Fisher was on the Inside. He concluded that our banking system failed. FDR was a mass murderer. He also allowed 3 million Americans to die rather than listen to Fisher.

    Very good blog! Do you have any suggestions for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option?
    There are so many choices out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any suggestions? Kudos!

      What are you writing? Fiction, news, opinions. Look at the Corbett Report. He has several blogs and partnerships with other blogs and video people plus a radio show.

      Start at WordPress. What is your audience? I demand too much intellect. I could be more popular but one of my articles was printed at a site for morons and I did not like the exceedingly stupid comments.

      I do not make money at what I am doing. I could monetize it but I don’t.

      Are you photogenic? Do you have a great voice? Sibel Edmonds is beautiful but has a terrible voice.

      Get on video.

      Make hits happen.

      Plug yourself on Facebook and Twitter. Also Reddit and wherever else.

      Attach yourself to another blog or whatever where you can get plugs.

      I will be posting an article in the AM. You might want to read it as I have startling info which could force you to change your plans.
