The Fed’s “Not QE” Is Morphing into “QE4ever” By Mike Gleason Another week, another new and expanded repo market intervention by the Federal Reserve.

Big Tech, Big Banks Push for “Cashless Society”

Big Tech, Big Banks Push for “Cashless Society” By Stefan Gleason The War on Cash isn’t a conspiracy theory. It’s an open agenda.

Last week, Facebook – in partnership with major banks, payment processors, and e-commerce companies – launched a digital currency called Libra. Unlike decentralized, free-floating cryptocurrencies, Libra will be tied to national fiat currencies, integrated into the financial system, and centrally managed. Critics…
