Pepe Escobar from his social media, March 16…


Let’s talk about the hardcore stuff.

Goldman Sachs told no less than 1,500 corporations on Friday that there was NO systemic risk.

My NYC sources say the truth is that the systemic risk is WAY more severe than 1979, 1987 or 2008 – “in that the 1.5 Quadrillion Derivative Market was about to collapse which is far higher than then.”

As you know, I’ve written a lot about the derivative tsunami for the past year or so. Some pretty good Swiss sources swear the tsunami is at 28.4 TIMES THE WORLD’S GDP – at 2.5 quadrillion.

As one of the NYC sources put it, nothing like this ever happened in history: “The intervention of the FED is unprecedented in the little understood elimination of commercial bank reserve requirements unleashing a potential unlimited expansion of credit to prevent a derivative implosion stemming from a total commodity and stock market collapse of all stocks around the world.”

As you all know by now the Fed made an emergency announcement on Sunday saying it would cut interest rates to near zero for the first time since the 2008 global financial crisis. This had to be on Sunday to avoid panic in Asia on Monday morning. Well, the panic happened – but in coronavirus epicenter Europe.

The ECB – remember Vuitton Lagarde saying she doesn’t give a damn about Italy – also has its own “stimulus package”. And on top of it, all coordinated, Fed, Bank of Japan, ECB, Swiss National Bank, Bank of Canada and Bank of England said they would use their swap lines to “support” the international supply of, you guessed it, US DOLLARS. They even added a weekly offering of US dollars “over a longer maturity”.

Once again, the New York guys: “Instead of the FED buying Dow Jones stocks to forestall a collapse, or oil futures – frantic efforts are being made to reverse the Saudi-Russian oil price war – the commercial banks will engineer the buying which under central bank supervision can ‘guide’ the banks into forestalling a complete market collapse.”

All this under the assumption that the coronavirus pandemic will fade away by mid-June. The top Chinese specialist – I posted about it earlier today – says it wont. Expect extra turbo-charged FED/ECB scams ahead.
