Oh dear Mr @arron_banks tsk tsk... thought he was so clever and must be feeling rather worried right now.
@Arron_banks And pièce de résistance! MORE corroborating my evidence to parliament on #LEAVEEU working with #CambridgeAnalytica - it seems from #Bannon actions they just never got paid. This supports other evidence gathered here: emma-briant.co.uk/reports/

Lets talk about the #MonetaryPolicy Implications for #FinancialInnovation / #FinTech...
I am sure by this time we have all heard of the phenomenon known as #FinTech. Recently, I used the #GoogleTrends platform to ascertain the degree of search interest in the term "FinTech". The graphs depict a surge in interest from around 2014...
I took the #GoogleTrends analysis a bit further and determined where (geographically) interest in the search term #FinTech was most pronounced...

1. In the past months I am often asked what I think of the #DeutscheBank's notional #derivative exposure, which as of Dec 31 2018, according to the bank's annual report, stood at a terrifying €43.5trillion (compare the German annual #GDP of €3 trillion).
Info @tbgstephen #Banks
2. To make it more real: The annual #GDP in the #EU is just €14.6 trillion per year, so the #DeutscheBank's derivative exposure is almost 3 times larger!
3. Reality is that the total in #DeutscheBank's report represents positions both long and short positons including hedging transactions.

2. #BlackRock currently has just under US$7 trillion under management & with #Vanguard they control two thirds of all #ETFs.

Now if BlackRock decides to sell a bigger share because the market turns you can quickly get a "run for the exit", A RUN!

3. #BlackRock has major shareholdings in many of the global Top 500 companies.

In Germany BlackRock is a major shareholder in ALL #DAX-companies!

My 140 favorite quotes from The Ethics of Money Production (2008), by Jörg Guido Hülsmann
1. #Money is omnipresent in modern life, yet the production of money does not seem to warrant any moral assessment”. J.G.Hülsmann
2. “To be sure, central bank representatives are lecturing the public on the importance of business #ethics; but their concerns do not seem to apply to themselves”. J.G.Hülsmann

1/ AT ONE TIME, EVERY PIECE OF #PAPER MONEY WAS BACKED BY #GOLD. REMEMBER… FOR EVERY 20 DOLLAR BILL… THERE WAS $20 WORTH OF GOLD IN A #GOVERNMENT VAULT. NOT ANYMORE.

TODAY, GOVERNMENTS CREATE #CURRENCY BY FIRST CREATING BONDS OR TREASURY-BILLS.
2/
THESE #BONDS ARE SOLD IN THE #MARKET… GENERATING FUNDS FOR THE GOVERNMENT THAT ISSUED THEM.

LARGE #BANKS BUY U.S. BONDS TO FLIP THEM… SELLING THEM TO THE #FEDERAL RESERVE AT A PROFIT -- THIS IS THE MAGIC MONEY MACHINE. #FED
3/ YOU SEE… THE FED IS AMERICA’S #CENTRALBANK. BUT IT DOESN’T HAVE ANY MONEY, NO #CASH ON ITS BALANCE SHEETS.

WHEN A BANK BUYS A BOND AND TAKES IT TO THE FEDERAL RESERVE, THE FED SIMPLY SAYS “THANK YOU MR. BANKER, HERE’S THE PRINCIPAL AND SOME #PROFIT.”

1/ The Senate Banking Comm staff reached out last week regarding @Facebook @Libra pursuant to my @ForbesCrypto article. During a conf call they indicated interest in receiving formal testimony from me. Here it is + summary follows 👇: forbes.com/sites/caitlinl… @DoWithCare
2/ Big takeaway--politicians that weaponize the US banking system (blocking access to disfavored industries/countries) are modern-day Herbert Hoovers bc these barriers block both unlawful & LAWFUL commerce, & these barriers caused the invention of #stablecoins in the first place.
3/ (OK, I didn't actually call them modern-day Herbert Hoovers the testimony, but I digress...) If Congress isn't happy about @facebook @Libra, it can immediately make #stablecoins irrelevant by letting #banks bank the #crypto industry (& I give v specific recommendations here:

‼️VoteLeave: Electoral Fraud?

VoteLeave, the official referendum campaign that was partly funded with taxpayers’ money, looks to have committed what may be one of the biggest incidents of electoral fraud in Britain in more than a century
amp.theguardian.com/politics/2018/…
Compelling evidence provided by Shahmir Sanni, a Vote Leave whistleblower, Gavin Millar, a QC at Matrix Chambers, an expert in electoral law, told us that this was of a scale and seriousness that simply hasn’t been seen in Britain in modern times.
amp.theguardian.com/politics/2018/…
📌The investigation into VoteLeave is just one of a number of ongoing inquiries into potential crimes.

Many of which were facilitated by new technology.

👉🏼Facebook. Because – and this is the key point – this is an election that took place in darkness.

1/ FIRST ANALYSIS of @facebook's #Libra: Facebook completely misunderstands money. 🤣😩 Facebook understands payment systems--but that's not the same as money. Two telling quotes: "Libra is backed by a reserve of real assets." "Many cryptocurrencies today (eg #Bitcoin & #Ether...
2/ ...have no underlying assets to back them." Money is a good that serves as an HONEST LEDGER--it doesn't need to have intrinsic value because it attains value by people trusting it to be an HONEST LEDGER. Money is just a bookkeeping system--not all bookkeeping systems are money
3/ ...yet @facebook throws gobbledygook at us by asserting #Libra has value because it's backed by "bank deposits & short-term govt securities." 🤣 Well, at least it appears Facebook doesn't have plans (yet) to engage in fractional-reserve banking with Libra Reserve's assets...

#HongKong: Pressure on the #USD - #HKD peg is mounting. The rising #US interest rates have put enormous pressure on the HKD peg. This has depleted Hong Kong's excess FX reserves.
#HongKong has FX Reserves of $438bn (March 2019) plus another $6.9bn from the HKMA Exchange Fund which is there to stabilize the #HKD peg. Looking at the HKMA Exchange fund it is clear that money has been leaving HK. Since 2016 the fund has gone from $55bn to $7bn.
#HongKong M2 is currently 1,8 trillion USD. However, the total FX Reserves / M2 are only at 24%.

Ah, the #EuropeanParliamentElection knocks at the door! Let’s see who is #campaigning for what…In #Italy, a #rightwingcoalition calls for a #guaranteedincome, #largerpensions, and resistance to the heavy-handed #austerityprograms enforced by the #EuropeanUnion.
In #France, some #rightwinggroups champion #fight against #climatechange, decry #exploitation of #foreignworkers, growing #economicinequality. What about the #centerright and #centerleft parties? #Polls show they will lose their #majority, and the Euroskeptics bag 30+% of seats.
However, #Euroskeptic, like #populist, is a term that obscures more than it reveals. #Spain’s leftist #Podemos isn’t likely to break bread with #Italy’s rightist #NorthernLeague-#M5S, but both are considered #Euroskeptic. Some are really #wolves but wear #sheepskins.

Here's a thread on banks becoming tech companies, vice versa and a few other permutations. #fintech #APIs #Banks
If banks start thinking of their C&I groups as B2B tech providers - including to their own retail/consumer banking units, the business case is there. They provide the tech infrastructure (via APIs) to companies creating great consumer experiences
