Countries Preparing For Bail-Ins

Jim Sinclair

Here we go: 

QE to Infinity, followed by Gold balancing the balance sheets of the sovereign balance sheet disasters. Just as there is no tool other than QE to feign financial solvency, there is no tool to balance the balance sheet of the offending entities other than Gold. It is just that simple. --Jim Sinclair 

My Dear Extended Family,  

Hi Jim,

Why does everyone seem to think that Canada, Cyprus and New Zealand are the only countries preparing for bail-ins?

This is the policy that the central banks are following. Check out the list of central banks consulted on the formulation of this - last page. The Fed is represented, so it should not have come as a surprise to Mr B. or was it the tilt of the cards that provoked the "angry" reaction?

Underlining is mine in the below quote.

Recommendation 10

National authorities should adopt crisis management and resolution strategies that reduce moral hazard by minimising public expenditures. Losses should be allocated among shareholders and other creditors, where possible; and private sector resolutions rather than public ownership should be facilitated. Where temporary public ownership is necessary, authorities should seek to return assets to private ownership and management as soon as possible. At the time of public intervention, national authorities should seek to develop public understanding about the amount of fiscal support that may be necessary, estimates of the time horizon for intervention, risk sharing arrangements and the possible losses borne by the taxpayers.

SIGNATORIES to the document which proposes that creditors of financial organizations, the depositors, carry responsibility to "bail in" bankrupt organizations.

Dear Janice,

The backpedalling and denials which have emanated from just the same bodies that signed on to this Cyprus template is because it was used in Cyprus, revealing its existence ahead of time. This was constructed for the next large banking problem and not for slamming an island tax shelter like Cyprus. Here is the undeniable template to confiscate deposits with legal grounds. Clearly if this was expected by any public, few would carry large balances in any bank. This should answer clearly the question, can central planners do really stupid things at just the wrong time and wrong targets?




Well thats food for thought - what say you? 

With gold, silver and Uranium stocks being out of favor one must decide if this is a problem or an opportunity. We have steadfastly refused to buy gold and silver mining stocks for the last two years and as evidenced by the HUI we feel that our decision to hold back has been vindicated. The damage done to the mining sector may not be over yet but this demise is starting to offer up some exciting opportunities in my view.

Great care will be needed in the selection process in order to generate a reasonable profit and that’s where our new venture begins. ‘Stock Trader’ has begun trading on behalf of ourselves and our much valued subscribers, all exciting stuff which we are really looking forward to, if you wish to join us then please subscribe below;
