It's not just about the absolute value of interest rates at any given specific point in time.
The SCAM is also, and mostly, actually, about large time-dependent money FLOWS :
those who get the money in their hands first, time-wise, are the same who profit the most ... by the very debasing of money done by design.
Fed's "money" printed out of thin air -> Banks + Gov't
-> Corporations + Insiders
-> Stock Speculators
-> Captive Markets
(-> insert more regulations here)
Ron Paul debunked this pattern in many speeches and even ... during campaign debates on TV for all to see and hear, while nobody would really pay attention (or care).
By the time you've reached the (unlucky) target of the 5th or 6th arrow, the ACTUAL value of money (in terms of tangible assets, durable or not, or services provided, that are convertible from it) can drop in two digits percentages in just a matter of years within the same decade.
Then, place it in the perspective of a context of amounts in the billions (X times $1,000,000,000) and not just a couple bucks in your pocket... The first couple arrows are much luckier in the plans timeline, don't you think ?
After that, one can re-read carefully this non-inconspicuous confessional quote ("they" don't even bother hiding, because few of us, the people, have any clues about what IT DOES MEAN, anyway) and my bold emphasis of the most interesting English phrases :
"[...]Fractional reserve banking allows people to invest their money, without losing the ability to use it on demand. Since most people do not need to use all their money all the time, banks lend out that money, to generate profit for themselves. Thus, banks can act as financial intermediaries — facilitating the investment of savers' funds. Full reserve banking, on the other hand, does not allow any money in such demand deposits to be invested (since all of the money would be locked up in reserves) and less liquid investments (such as stocks, bonds and time deposits) lock up a lender's money for a time, making it unavailable for the lender to use.
According to mainstream economic theory, regulated fractional-reserve banking also benefits the economy by providing regulators with powerful tools for manipulating the money supply and interest rates, which many see as essential to a healthy economy[...]"
Now, guess WHO are the ones in the bold phrases.
Mainstream economic "theories" ?
Powerful "tools" ?
Which "many see" ?
Oh ... Really ?
Should we be surprised that "they" may happen to be THE VERY SAME people at work, there, precisely ?
If so : what does this tell us, by not even extrapolating that much ?
Makes sense already, or does it require more extensive semantic skills ? If one asks me ... this speaks A LOT, already.
"Cyril" pronounced "see real". I code stuff.
