The Grexit Into Gold-backed Drachma Conspiracy Theory – or – Plan Z

The Grexit Into Gold-backed Drachma Conspiracy Theory – or – Plan Z

The Grexit Into Gold-backed Drachma Conspiracy Theory – or Plan Z

By Reggie Middleton | Zero Hedge

The Grexit Into Gold-backed Drachma Conspiracy Theory - or - Plan Z

From Wikipedia:

Plan Z during 2012

“Plan Z” is the name given to a 2012 plan to enable Greece to withdraw from the eurozone in the event of Greek bank collapse.[16] It was drawn up in absolute secrecy by small teams totalling approximately two dozen officials at the European Commission (Brussels), the European Central Bank (Frankfurt) and the IMF (Washington).[16] Those officials were headed by Jörg Asmussen (ECB), Thomas Wieser (Euro working group), Poul Thomsen (IMF) and Marco Buti (European Commission).[16] To prevent premature disclosure no single document was created, no emails were exchanged, and no Greek officials were informed.[16] The plan was based on the 2003 introduction of new dinars into Iraq by the Americans[16] and would have required rebuilding the Greek economy and banking system ab initio, including isolating Greek banks by disconnecting them from theTARGET2 system, closing ATMs, and imposing capital and currency controls.[16]

Wolfson economics prize

In July 2012, the Wolfson economics prize, a prize for the “best proposal for a country to leave the European Monetary Union,” was awarded to a Capital Economics team led by Roger Bootle, for their submission titled “Leaving the Euro: A Practical Guide.”[19] The winning proposal argued that a member wishing to exit should introduce a new currency and default on a large part of its debts. The net effect, the proposal claimed, would be positive for growth and prosperity. It also called for keeping the euro for small transactions and for a short period of time after the exit from the eurozone, along with a strict regime of inflation-targeting and tough fiscal rules monitored by “independent experts.”

The Roger Bootle/Capital Economics plan also suggested that “key officials” should meet “in secret” one month before the exit is publicly announced, and that eurozone partners and international organisations should be informed “three days before.” The judges of the Wolfson economics prize found that the winning plan was the “most credible solution” to the question of a member state leaving the eurozone.

… In February 2015 the Russian government stated that it would offer Greece aid but would only provide it in rubles.[31]

Kathimerini reported that after the 16th February Eurogroup talks Commerzbank AG increased the risk of Greece exiting the euro to 50%.[32] The expression used by TIME for these talks is “Greece and the Euro Zone dance on the precipice”.[33]

Effect upon the European economy

Claudia Panseri, head of equity strategy at Société Générale, speculated in late May 2012 that eurozone stocks could plummet up to 50 percent in value if Greece makes a disorderly exit from the eurozone.[34]

Wait a minute! That’s not possible. Goldmans Sachs says to buy EU eqities because of ECB QE and NIRP! We all know Goldman Sachs is always right, that’s why more than half of hedge funds are following suit…

Asset Allocation EU Equities

Asset Allocation EU Equities

After all, do you remember Goldman’s recommendation to sell the Swiss Franc? It worked out excellente’, reference When Everybody Thinks They’re Right, They’re Almost Guaranteed to be Wrong! I Think This Is The Biggest Bubble In World History.

Bond yields in other European nations could widen 100 basis points to 200 basis points, negatively affecting their ability to service their own sovereign debts.[34]

Hopefully with no correlation whatsoever to US-based debt, cause Goldman also recommended – Long U.S. High-Yield credit risk: The recent underperformance of the U.S.High-Yield market should prove transitory, the bank reckons. I addition, what will the ECB do after all of this QE and NIRP if bond yields spike anyway? Well.. More NIRP and QE of course!

Greece Will Not Be Treated as a Debt Colony That Should Suffer – Finance Minister

By RT

Greece Will Not Be Treated as a Debt Colony That Should Suffer

Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis. Image credit: Jfgoulon [CC BY-SA 4.0], via Wikimedia

Greece isn’t playing negotiating games with the EU, says Greek Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis as he readies to face his counterparts in Brussels Monday, unwilling to agree to more of the same austerity medicine.

Greece is determined not to be “treated as a debt colony that should suffer what it must. The principle of the greatest austerity for the most depressed economy would be quaint if it did not cause so much unnecessary suffering,” Varoufakis wrote in a New York Times op-ed, published Monday.

The finance minister called the talks between Greece, EU finance ministers and central bankers, to be resumed Monday, a “turning point for Europe’s unfolding experiment with monetary union.”

Greece’s is one of the main players in the eurozone debt crisis, which began to unravel in 2009 and show the weakness of the then 18-member euro currency. The currency, which began circulating in 1999, was meant to make the EU a financial bloc to rival the US. But by banding together, no individual country of the union was safeguarded against the woes of another. In 2009, worries that Greece would default on its debt forced the EU to bailout the economy. Two bailouts were paid in 2010 and 2014 totaling €240 billion.

The new Syriza-led Greek government does not agree to the eurozone bailout under the same constraints as the former government.

“The great difference between this government and previous Greek governments is twofold: We are determined to clash with mighty vested interests in order to reboot Greece and gain our partners’ trust,” Varoufakis said.

In total, Greece is more than €317 billion in debt, which is more than 175 percent its annual gross domestic product.

Finances are dwindling. Greece needs to negotiate with EU policymakers by February 28 in order to receive the next tranche of bailout funds. Athens and Brussels have been embroiled in financial rescue package talks since the new government won a snap election on January 25 on the promise of ending austerity.

Syriza is instead trying to renegotiate its bailout with its Troika of lenders- the International Monetary Fund, the European Central Bank, and the European Commission. The Greek government is asking for more time to negotiate, and wants a six-month bridging loan, not an extension of the old program, which has kept Greece in recession for more than 6 years.

No red lines will be crossed, and no games will be played, Greece just wants to start growing again, Varoufakis wrote.

First Hour Guest

Gerald Celente - Publisher of the Trends Journal

Gerald Celente: Publisher of the Trends Journal

At the bottom of the first hour, JD is joined by Gerald Celente for a brief update on the state of the worlds economy in the wake of the Greek election, continuing commodity manipulations and the global urge to un-peg from the petro-dollar.

Gerald Celente, a pioneer trend strategist, founded the Trends Research Institute in 1980. He is the author of the national bestseller Trends 2000 and Trend Tracking: Far Better than Megatrends (Warner Books), and publisher of the internationally distributed quarterly Trends Journal.

For more than three decades, Celente has built his reputation as a fearless teller of the truth, an accurate forecaster and an analyst whose expertise crosses many arenas, from economics to politics, from health to science, and more. Most important, Celente is a pure political atheist. Unencumbered by political dogma, rigid ideology or conventional wisdom, Celente—whose motto is “think for yourself”—observes and analyzes the current events forming future trends, seeing them for what they are – not as what he’d like them to be.

In the final analysis, it’s about the quality, frequency and accuracy of the forecasts Celente has made. He earned his reputation as “The most trusted name in trends” by accurately forecasting hundreds of social, business, consumer, environmental, economic, political, entertainment, and technology trends.

Jamie Hanshaw

Jamie was under the weather today, and couldn’t join us. She will be rescheduled soon.
In the second hour, JD is joined by author and researcher Jamie Hanshaw to further discuss her research into MK Ultra programs like the Monarch program centering around the enforcement and creation of culture through children working in the entertainment industry for companies like Disney.

Jamie is a second generation conspiracy theorist. Growing up in the 80’s and 90’s she was exposed very early to the growing world of truth seekers, alternative historians, Clinton scandals, FEMA activities and witchcraft in Saturday morning cartoons.

Jamie, with co-writer Freeman, is compiling all of this information into a fully illustrated, well-referenced compendium of the occult mind pattern programming of Hollywood and the Mainstream media in their new book, Weird Stuff Operation: Culture Creation.

Russia's Modest Proposal To Greece: "Exit Europe And We Will Lift The Food Import Ban"

It has not been a good week for Greece: first we learned that its treasury has run dry as Greece have stop paying all taxes ahead of the elections (and likely after), making further reforms virtually impossible as the government simply does not have the cash to promote economic changes; then we found out that first two then all four of the largest Greek banks have submitted Emergency Liquidity Assistance requests to the ECB to preserve liquidity in light of a deposit run that is picking up pace. And yesterday, adding insult to injury, Spiegel leaked that while seeking preapproval from Merkel for his QE program to be announced next week, Draghi told the Germans that Greek bonds won’t be among the securities monetized by the ECB.

It almost makes the Greeks wonder what’s the point of staying in the Eurozone and keeping the Euro if all it leads to is 50% youth unemployment, 25% total unemployment, and unprecedented pain and suffering as a result of the internal devaluation that will continue indefinitely since Greece, courtesy of the Euro, is unable to engage in an external one.

Of course, the Greek population will be able to voice its opinion next Sunday when it holds general elections, which will almost surely be won by Tsipras who has threatened on numerous occasions to renegotiate the Greek bailout, something Germany has made quite clear is not a topic for debate, and that a Grexit is assured if Greece thinks it can hold Europe hostage with threats of Eurozone collapse.

And just to make things interesting, overnight Russia told a beleaguered Greece, and specifically its hurting farmers, that it “may lift its ban on food imports from Greece in the event it quits the European Union” according to Russian Minister of Agriculture Nikolai Fyodorov who spoke in Berlin on Friday.

If Greece has to leave the European Union, we will build our own relations with it, the food ban will not be applicable to it,” Fyodorov said as reported by Tass.

In other words, Russia has casually thrown out feelers to Greece (and any other peripheral European country) and given it the option of joining the greater Russian sphere of influence (because the USSR 2.0 and satellites is still not trademarked), should it decide that 5 years after the first Greek “bailout” things for the country caught in an endless depression are as good as they will get with a bunch of Goldman bankers in charge.

Fyodorov also said that European Union countries, which felt discomfort from the slump in proceeds from exports of foods to Russia, were asking Russia to cushion the impacts of the Russian food import ban by expanding other types of imports. “We are looking at such possibility,” he said, adding that these countries offer new formats of cooperation in those areas that are not covered by the Russian food sanctions.

One such format apparently is the “hint” that should the European Union finally implode after years of kicking the can, then Russia will be more than happy to pick up the pieces.

Insanity? Perhaps, but just 48 hours ago crazier things happened, when a central bank which until Monday telegraphed the rock solid determination of its monetary policy not to mention the Swiss Franc’s floor, shocked the world when it became the first western bank to admit defeat in currency wars which have cost it a balance sheet the size of its GDP.

The ball is now in Greece’s court.
