The Global Economic Reset Has Begun

This article was written by Brandon Smith and originally published at

In my last article, I outlined the deliberately engineered trend toward the forced “harmonization” of national economies and monetary policies, as well as the ultimate end goal of globalists: a single world currency system controlled by the International Monetary Fund and, by extension, global governance, which internationalists sometimes refer to in their more honest public moments as the “new world order.”

The schematic for the new world order, according to the admissions of the internationalists, cannot possibly include the continued existence of U.S. geopolitical and economic dominance. The plan, in fact, requires the destabilization and reformation of America into a shell of its former glory. The most important element of this plan demands the removal of the U.S. dollar as the de facto world reserve currency, a change that would devastate our current financial structure.

I outlined with undeniable evidence the reality that major governments, including the BRICS governments of the East, are fully on board with the globalist agenda. There is no way around it; the BRICS, including Russia and China, have openly called for a global monetary system centralized and dictated by the IMF using the SDR basket. This same plan was outlined decades ago in the Rothschild-owned magazine The Economist. We are witnessing that plan being implemented in front of our very eyes today.

For the past couple of years, the current head of the IMF, Christine Lagarde, has used the phrase “global economic reset” often in her speeches and interviews. There is some (deliberate) ambiguity to this notion, but after sitting through hours upon hours of her most boring and repetitive discussions in globalist think tanks such as the Council On Foreign Relations, the consistent message is pretty straightforward. If anyone can stand to listen to this woman’s carefully crafted prattle and well-vetted half-truths for more than five minutes, I suggest they watch this particular speech given in January at the CFR:

[ot-video type=”youtube” url=””]

Her message on the global economic reset is essentially this: “Collective” cooperation will not just be encouraged in the new order, it will be required — meaning, the collective cooperation of all nations toward the same geopolitical and economic framework. If this is not accomplished, great fiscal pain will be felt and “spillover” will result. Translation: Due to the forced interdependency of globalism, crisis in one country could cause a domino effect of crisis in other countries; therefore, all countries and their economic behavior must be managed by a central authority to prevent blundering governments or “rogue central banks” from upsetting the balance.

It’s interesting how the IMF’s answer to the failings of globalization is MORE globalization. In other words, Lagarde would argue that while we are in the midst of an international system, we are not centralized enough for such a system to succeed.

The IMF points out correctly that the economic situation around the world is not stable and could revert once again to the chaos of the initial 2008 crash. The Bank for International Settlements, the primary hub of central bank control, has also given numerous warnings this year on the potential for disaster, including in its latest quarterly report.

The warnings of the BIS in particular should not be taken lightly (some analysts are indeed taking them lightly). The BIS knows exactly when financial disasters will erupt because it wrote the central bank policies that created those same events. For example, in 2007, the BIS released a warning that perfectly predicted the elements of the derivatives and credit crisis in 2008.

What these globalist institutions will not tell you in a direct manner are the real causes and motivations behind the inevitable next stage in the ongoing destruction of the current economic system

The global reset is not a “response” to the process of collapse we are trapped in today. No, the global reset as implemented by central banks and the BIS/IMF is the CAUSE of the collapse. The collapse is a tool, a flamethrower burning a great hole in the forest to make way for the foundations of the globalist Ziggurat to be built. As outlined in my last article, economic disaster serves the interests of elitists.

When you look at these actions by the Federal Reserve and the U.S. government in particular, questions arise. Is it “stupidity” that is causing them to sabotage the golden goose? Is it hubris and greed? Their actions are clearly facilitating a program of incremental implosion, yet they continue to ignore the obvious. Why?

The people who ask these questions are operating on a false assumption; they have assumed that the international bankers and the puppet politicians they control have any interest in protecting the longevity of the U.S. The fact is they do not. They have no loyalty whatsoever to the U.S. system, nor do they see the U.S. as “too big to fail.” This is utter nonsense to globalists. Rather, they see each nation and central bank as a piece in a game, much like chess. Some pieces have to be sacrificed in order to gain a better position on the board. This is all that the U.S., the Federal Reserve and even the dollar are to them: expendable pieces in a larger game.

The U.S. is now experiencing the next stage of the great reset. Two pillars were put in place on top of an already existing pillar by the central banks in order to maintain a semblance of stability after the 2008 crash.  This faux stability appears to have been necessary in order to allow time for the conditioning of the masses towards greater acceptance of globalist initiatives, to ensure the debt slavery of future generations through the taxation of government generated long term debts, and to allow for internationalists to safely position their own assets.  The three pillars are now being systematically removed by the same central bankers. Why? I believe that they are simply ready to carry on with the next stage of the controlled demolition of the American structure as we know it.

Bailouts And QE:  The First Pillar Removed

The bailout bonanza was in part a direct intervention in the deflationary avalanche of the derivatives bubble, but also an indirect intervention in that it changed the psychological dynamics of the markets. As former Fed chairmans Alan Greenspan and Ben Bernanke have both hinted at in interviews and op-eds, one of the primary concerns of the central bank was the psychology behind higher stock prices.

Stock prices could be propped up by the Fed itself through proxy buyers using the printing press. Or the Fed could inject billions, if not trillions, of dollars into banks and allow them to run wild, artificially boosting investment while doing nothing to solve the existing dilemma of negative fundamentals.  Beyond this, the markets began to move on the mere words or edicts of Fed officials as algo-computers and the general investment world placed bets on rhetoric rather than reality; a dynamic which is now ending.

The bailouts also reanimated the cadavers of large corporations and banks, not just in the U.S. but in Europe, giving the illusion of life to the financial system while leaving Main Street to rot. In the meantime, quantitative easing measures provided a way to continue financing U.S. government debt at the expense of generations of taxpayers as numerous primary lenders began to abandon typical long-term bond purchases.

Furthermore, oil markets appear to have been directly inflated by QE intervention. It is important to take note that oil prices remained extraordinarily high despite the continuous fall in global demand UNTIL the moment the Federal Reserve instituted the taper of QE3. Then, prices began to plunge.

In a September 2013 article, I predicted that the Fed, despite all common sense and the claims of banks like Goldman Sachs, would indeed follow through with the taper: a removal of the first pillar levitating the U.S. system.

I was, of course, called crazy at the time for this prediction by some people within the alternative economic community.

“Why in the world” they asked, “would the Fed taper QE when they can simply print to infinity and kick the can down the road perpetually?” Again, these people do not understand that America is under scheduled demolition by the international banks; it is not being protected by them.

The taper occurred in December of that year.

Near Zero Interest Rates:  The Second Pillar Nearly Removed

After the taper of QE, volatility not seen since 2008/2009 returned to the markets. And the public once again was reminded in sporadic moments that the recovery might not be real after all. Europe and Japan quickly stepped in with their own renewed stimulus measures, and Fed officials began using strategic media interviews to “hint” falsely that QE might return. Markets rallied, then fell dramatically, then rallied again, then fell again in a shocking manner. And this volatility has been the trend up until recently, when the question of the end of zero interest rate policy arose.

Again, very few people have ever asked or demanded the Fed end QE or ZIRP. There was never any legitimate public pressure on the fed to remove these pillars. The investment world has been essentially addicted like heroin junkies to assured gains for three years.  The war cry of the investment world has been BTFD! (Buy the f’ing dip) for quite some time; investors have come to expect and demand inevitable central bank intervention and fiat driven stock market rallies.  Yet, the Fed is ending the party anyway.

ZIRP is the only pillar left holding stocks in place. Without zero interest rates, and with even the most minor of .25 basis points added, cost-free overnight lending to banks and corporations will end. They will not be able to afford continued lending on the massive scale seen since 2009/2010. This means no more stock buybacks for dying companies like IBM or General Motors, among others. This means a considerable decline in the markets, declines which we have had a taste of in recent plunges in equities at the mere mention of interest rate increases.

In August in an article entitled ‘Economic Crisis Goes Mainstream: What Happen’s Next?’, I wrote:

“The Federal Reserve push for a rate hike will likely be determined before 2015 is over. Talk of a September increase in interest rates may be a ploy, and a last-minute decision to delay could be on the table. This tactic of edge-of-the-seat meetings and surprise delays was used during the QE taper scenario, which threw a lot of analysts off their guard and caused many to believe that a taper would never happen. Well, it did happen, just as a rate hike will happen, only slightly later than mainstream analysts expect.

If a delay occurs, it will be short-lived, triggering a dead cat bounce in stocks, with rates increasing by December as dismal retail sales become undeniable leading into the Christmas season.”

You can also read my analysis on the motivations behind a Fed rate hike as well as the theater surrounding their policies.

The cat seems to have finished its bounce and stocks are returning to volatility.  Retail sales so far for Black Friday weekend (including Thanksgiving) have posted a staggering 10% drop with online sales below expectations. Chain Store sales have recently crashed 6.3% week over week.  Plunging freight rates and global shipping indicate a severe lack of global demand and a terrible sales season ahead.  Janet Yellen, ignoring all negative economic signals as predicted, has all but declared a rate hike a given by Dec. 16.

I was, yet again, called crazy for this assertion by some at the time; and to be clear, I could still be wrong. The Fed could pull a fast one and not raise rates, though the rhetoric coming from the fed today almost guarantees they will take action. Not raising rates doesn’t match with their past habits; they seem to be following the timing of the taper model perfectly. The point is, despite common assumptions within the alternative media, the Fed is not “trapped” and can do whatever it wants, including killing the markets if it benefits the greater goal of a global economic authority. With the ZIRP pillar gone, expect even more violent swings in stocks and general uncertainty and panic among day-traders and the public.

U.S. Dollar’s World Reserve Status:  The Third Pillar In Progress Of Removal

I’ve been writing about the loss of the dollar’s reserve status since 2008. And as I have always said, the removal of this final pillar is a process, not an overnight affair. The BRICS nations have been positioning themselves for years — China since 2005, the rest of the BRICS since at least 2010.

The delusion that some economic analysts have been under is that the BRICS were strategically vying for power by building their own unified banking institution in “opposition” to the IMF and the West. As I presented in my last article, this has proven to be completely false. They were in fact positioning to take their place as puppets within the new global paradigm taking shape. China has now joined the IMF’s SDR basket (as predicted); and Russia, along with the other BRICS, has openly called for the IMF to take control of the global monetary system.

China’s inclusion, I believe, will hasten the loss of the dollar’s market share of reserve status over the next year, along with other factors. Saudi Arabia has also brought the idea of a depeg from the U.S. dollar into the mainstream discussion. This action, which mainstream economists are calling a possible Black Swan, would end the dollar’s petro-status and result in catastrophe for the U.S. economy. The removal of the final pillar is well underway.

As I have stated in the past, the U.S. system as it stands does not necessarily deserve to survive, but then again, this does not mean that it should be sacrificed in order to breathe life into the monstrosity of global economic governance. Such a trade-off only serves the interests of a select group of elites, with the global reset ending in the mechanized multicultural suicide of sovereignty, leeching prosperity from the rest of us in the name of “collective progress.” Globalists want us to believe there is no other option but their leadership, and they will create any measure of chaos in order to convince us of their necessity.

  1. “Due to the forced interdependency of globalism, crisis in one country could cause a domino effect of crisis in other countries;”

    This is the problem, and it also reveals the answer.

    We true Americans must create our own industry. We do not need tobe dependent on other nations for anything. Why do you think they ship OUR resources to foreign nations and moved industry there to create products? So that we then became dependent on other nations for the really bad stuff, even food, they create and send here instead of quality American made goods that we used to create. It is time for us to reverse that on our own.

    WE the People of the United States” own the resources of our nation, NOT those that SERVE WITHIN our government. Those that serve within our governments sell it and give it away as if it is their own. The let corporations like Nestle use them for FREE and then charge us for that product (one example is Calfornia water).

    These are our natural resources. No one who serves within our governmetns ahve the alwful right to sell them to any foreign nation, etc. We can create our own industry, refuse to use any foreign.

    Other ways to stop Agenda 21, NWO, the traitors in our governments, mess up technocracy, slow down and put a huge crimp in spying is to start requiring the removal of Smart meters nationwide.

    First they were presented to the people as lowering energy costs which was a lie and they knew it BEFORE the Smart meter rollout. (sent OK a copy of it years ago). Remember that deceit in a contract voids the contract.

    Smart meters are dangerous, and that also was known before the roll out. They cause fires, they cause gas explosions, health problems, etc.

    In many states videos were made where the Smart meter installer was escorted by armed LE’s to FORCE owners to have them on their homes even after they had opted out, locked their gatese, put notices up on their own property that NO Smart meters were to be installed. Some were put into handcuffs, arrested and the Smart meter was put on homes with force of government. Thankfully thousands kept those videos so the proof is there.

    If armed force was used, that alone should have told the dumbed down masses that it was a lie, and was being forced on the people on their own property for other reasons.

    Technocracy, etc is being implemented by regulations created by agencies – many under the executive branch. The US Constitution is very explicit in who is DELEGATED the authority to create legislation binding on the American people.

    US Constitution, Article I, Section 1: “All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States, which shall consist of a Senate and House of Representatives.”

    Notice that word “All” at the beginning, that word excludes any other person, branch, agency, foreign entity, etc except for the Senate and the House of Representatives from creating any legislation binding on the American people.

    That means the IRS cannot create regulations lawfully, nor can the BLM, CPS, FDA, EPA, etc, etc, etc. None of those agencies have the delegated authority to create any law/regulation/code/treaty that is LAWFUL and binding on the American people.

    Athough the “Elastic” Clauses are sued for much usurpation on the aprt of the three branches, it is NOT what they lie to the people about. From those who would know what they created…

    Article I, Section 8 giving Congress the power to “provide for the common Defence and general Welfare.”
    The clear legal meaning of the phrase which came from the Articles of Confederation meant then, and still means today, a small subset of duties each individual state considered appropriate to delegate to a separate authority.

    Roger Sherman, one of the Founding Fathers of the United States, moved to have the phrase added to the Constitution, clarifies this (only in the last few decades) misused clause. It was to be connected with the clause for laying taxes and duties. He wanted to make it very clear that taxes could only be collected for the enumerated powers, that the “objects of the Union” are “few”; including to list them as “defence against foreign danger,” defense “against internal disputes & a resort to force,” and “regulating foreign commerce and drawing revenue from it” as the specified powers of the general (federal) government. This was the conclusive understanding that all the other representatives held in the Philadelphia Convention and the state conventions afterwards.

    James Madison: “I, sir, have always conceived – I believe those who proposed the Constitution conceived, and it is still more fully known, and more material to observe that those who ratified the Constitution conceived –that this is not an indefinite Government, deriving its power from the general terms prefixed to the specified powers, but a limited Government tied down to the specified powers which explain and define the general terms.” (He made it clear that the phrase reiterated that the specified powers were tied to “general terms that delegated the specific powers to the legislative branch.)

    Thomas Jefferson: “Congress has not unlimited powers to provide for the general welfare, but only those specifically enumerated.”

    James Madison: “With respect to the words “general welfare,” I have always regarded them as qualified by the detail of powers connected with them. To take them in a literal and unlimited sense would be a metamorphosis of the Constitution into a character which there is a host of proofs was not contemplated by its creators.”

    It is all found there within the US Constitution. There are no unwritten “delegated” powers.

    Thomas Jefferson: “Our peculiar security is in the possession of a written Constitution. Let us not make it a blank paper by construction.”

    James Madison: “Do not separate text from historical background. If you do, you will have perverted and subverted the Constitution, which can only end in a distorted, bastardized form of illegitimate government.”

    Alexander Hamilton: “Every act of a delegated authority, contrary to the tenor of the commission under which it is exercised, is void. No legislative act, therefore, contrary to the Constitution, can be valid. To deny this, would be to affirm, that the deputy is greater than his principal; that the servant is above his master; that the representatives of the people are superior to the people themselves; that men acting by virtue of powers, may do not only what their powers do not authorize, but what they forbid.”

  2. Sorry for all the spelling errors all

    This should NOT read “… though the “Elastic” Clauses are sued for much usurpation on the aprt of the three branches, it is NOT what they lie to the people about. ”

    It should be “… though the “Elastic” Clauses are USED for much usurpation on the part of the three branches, it is NOT what they lie to the people about, it means something much different. “

  3. We must gloabalize -one world government – or we may not join the Federation of Planets. Brainwashing goes to Star Trek, I think

  4. Clean your weapons, buy more ammo. I could care less about the rise and fall of another nation. I care about America and what’s ours. If it comes to fighting in the streets to retake this country from the clutches of the New World Order than so be it. I don’t think the global elite will be ready for the backlash when they step on America’s toes……God Bless America and Semper Fi

  5. The politicians and bureaucrats do definitely consider themselves the masters over We the People. They rule by fiat, ignoring the Constitution. It is time to abolish the federal dictatorship, hang the traitors, and start over. I just wrote a blog article ( calling for the removal from office and execution of barak Obama for treason. Obama has given money and weapons to islamists who have sworn to destroy this nation and kill all of us who will not bow to allah/satan. Obama has also violated the Constitution and the oath he swore to it when he illegally took office. He has betrayed We the People in order to further the NWO agenda of those he bows to. Most of congress is just as guilty and deserving of a rope. Since it is a government-wide conspiracy against the Constitution, We the People, and liberty we can rest assured nothing will be done by politicians to turn things around. Many are calling for citizens to be disarmed illegally and that action, when they actually put it into effect will begin the 2nd Revolutionary War as I wrote in a previous article ( The author’s premise of this article is very accurate and forboding as it foretells the destruction of liberty worldwide and the establishment of the satanic new world order. I would much rather see a peaceful reversal of the current course but I don’t believe the new world order despots will allow that to happen. Only a massive rebellion can change things!!!!!

    1. “It is time to abolish the federal dictatorship, hang the traitors, and start over. ”

      No, it is time to REPLACE the people who are Traitors and Domesitc Enemies of the American people, the US Constitution, and the USA.

      We do not need to start over, nor is that required of us as we are a dumbed down populace – even the most educated of us – nor do we have a moral structure in place that could create a government as good as the US Constitution.

      What is needed is enforcement, and the US Constitution itself assigns that duty to us, “We the People…” as the organized Militia (trained as the congress requires the military to be trained, in other words Veterans and those they train that KNOW THE US CONSTITUTION and state Constitutions and LAWFULLY follow them).

      I agree with hanging after they are found guilty.

      “… calling for the removal from office and execution of barak Obama for treason.”

      You are forgetting a few other Traitors such as the Bush’s, the Clinton’s, Panetta and Dempsey who openly declared their Treason on the seante floor – plus all who were present that day and did nothing), Feinstein, Boxer, Rice, Ogden, a ton of judges both superior and other, a lot of governors, etc.

      “I would much rather see a peaceful reversal of the current course …”

      As would most of us.

      But you are forgetting more then this one very important thing, the US CONSTITUTION and all that is in Pursuance thereof it is the Supreme LAW of this nation, it defines in writing our government, it assigns the DELEGATED duties, it IS the contract that all who serve within our governments are under.

      Another is that THOSE THAT SERVE WITHIN our governments are NOT “THE” government themselves, but put there – be it elected, hired, contracted, etc – to carry out the duties that are delegated by the people and assigned to the different branches and specific named-in-writing offices, not to the people who serve. Those people are ALLOWED to use the authority of the branch or/and office as long as they keep their Oath, it is NOT theirs as a person, but theirs to use under specific written conditions they are required to meet. They are forbidden to use the authority that is delegated elsewhere; trade/sell/give away they authority that they are ALLOWED to use by virtue of the positioin they occupy.

      Basically we must remove all who are currently serving because even if “honest” they are allowing this to go on so cannot be trusted ever again in a position of authority.

      Remember it IS all in writing, even as to who is to constitutionally REQUIRED remove them, enforce the US Cosntitution and all that is in Pursuance thereof it, and enforce each state Constitution.

  6. The US govt fiat dollar debt is unsustainable. What justice demands is no repayment to those who loan to a known bankrupt which can only repay the loan by coercing people yet born. Patriots ought to demand REPUDIATION of that supposed govt debt. The Fed Debt will be repudiated by hyperinflation or other trickery no matter what; that is a foregone conclusion… let’s get on with it.

  7. It just blows my mind why we can’t have leaders that would audit the Feds and eliminate their banking system from this country, just as Andrew Jackson did. The Rothschild group shouldn’t even allowed on our shores. Our house of Representatives should control the money supply and allow our entrepreneurs to establish and control our capitalistic system. No more socialism period!

  8. Concerning The Third Pillar’s petro-dollar paradigm: I see a better, brighter way for us and here’s my reasoning Oh it’s no joke at all, it’s 50 to 60 mpg and restores the environment for 60 cents a gallon. I myself personally do not know anyone at all in America who favors the idea of ‘Beholdin'” to Rulers, Kings, etc Those Mid-eastern Royals would be staring out of their desert palace windows at their ‘slave peasants’ who’d be demanding they sell their furniture for food. We don’t need THEM and we never have needed them.

  9. Of course it’s a controlled demolition but you never mention the perpetrators, the Neocons who are largely dual citizen Israeli’s. Why is that? Why is it that everyone is afraid to mention that Israel and their dual citizens in the U.S. support ISIS, the war on terror, control the banks, control the media, control the congress, CONTROL THE FEDERAL RESRVE?
    They are the Rothschilds, The thing you can’t talk about is the thing you should fear.

    1. The issue that you are overlooking is that the Rothschilds are only ONE family in the midst of many elites that are part of the international banking cabal. Hyperfocusing on one family or one nation (Israel) displays an ignorance of the larger picture; an ignorance that prevents practical solutions from being pursued.

      1. Thanks, Brandon. It’s not wise to overlook any potential plutocrat nor their enablers, those who believe themselves to be counted within the body of the elite. Boy will those servants be surprised when they also are religated to serfdom like everyone else. New World Disorder should be the order of the day.

  10. Well, of course there are other elites but none so prevalent here in the US or Europe with so much power. To deny this is akin to denying that all countries are involved in seeking global governance. Further it denies history, such as the Bolvshevik revolution and the Balfour agreement..In terms of solutions, we better hope that there are enough states that are interested in their own sovereignty to break away from the grip of the federal globalist government of the U.S.
    BTW, I think you’re a great writer and read all your stuff.

  11. Start to focus

    Although Adelson hasn’t officially endorsed Rubio, it’s likely just a matter of time. See the following excerpt from yesterday’s Miami Herald:

    As GOP presidential candidates take the debate stage Tuesday at an extravagant Las Vegas hotel, they will once again compete for voters in an increasingly unpredictable race. But they are also vying for the attention of the man who owns the building — and no candidate has worked harder than Florida’s Marco Rubio.

    The U.S. senator has avidly courted casino magnate Sheldon Adelson, sitting down with him privately numerous times, including a dinner in Washington weeks before launching his campaign in April, and checking in regularly by phone to talk about Israel and the campaign.

    All told, Adelson and his Israeli-born wife spent $93 million that cycle [2008], the No. 1 individual donors, by far.

    This time, Adelson, whose worth is valued at somewhere between $20 billion and $30 billion, reportedly wants to throw his weight behind a more electable candidate and he’s prepared to spend even more. “I don’t cry when I lose,” he told the Wall Street Journal in 2012. “There’s always a new hand coming up.”

    Rubio has benefited from an outside group that has run TV ads featuring his hawkish foreign policy views, including a vow to tear up the Iran nuclear deal, which Adelson loathes. Rubio is also backing legislation Adelson is pushing to crush an expansion of online gambling, which threatens his global casino empire.

    Much of Rubio’s supposed favor has been conveyed by people who are close to Adelson, not Adelson himself, who rarely talks to the media.

    Adelson is a critic of unions but moderate on social issues and supports stem-cell research and immigration reform.

    Adelson does have business interests, and earlier this year Rubio attracted attention when he signed onto a bill that Adelson is trying to get through Congress that aims to curtail online gambling in states, a threat to his casino empire.

    Though Rubio has talked about states’ rights and avoiding picking “winners and losers,” he has attributed his support for the bill to a feeling that the Internet has fewer safeguards to protect people from fraud and addiction.

    “Rubio calls and says, ‘Hey, did you see this speech? Did you see my floor statement on Iran? What do you think I should do about this issue?’ ” a September New York magazine story quoted an unnamed Adelson friend as saying. “It’s impressive. Rubio is persistent.”
