Another conspiracy “theory” becomes conspiracy “fact” as The FT reports “a cluster of central banking investors has become major players on world equity markets.” The report, to be published this week by the Official Monetary and Financial Institutions Forum (OMFIF), confirms $29.1tn in market investments, held by 400 public sector institutions in 162 countries, which “could potentially contribute to overheated asset prices.”
China’s State Administration of Foreign Exchange has become “the world’s largest public sector holder of equities”, according to officials, and we suspect the Fed is close behind (courtesy of more levered positions at Citadel), as the world’s banks try to diversify themselves and “counters the monopoly power of the dollar.” Which leaves us wondering where are the central bank 13Fs?

Al anochecer, las trabajadoras son registradas para comprobar que no han robado nada. Con sus puertas de metal y sus barrotes en las ventanas, estos talleres parecen más un cuartel militar. Así es como los chinos son competitivos.

Todas han llegado del campo tratando de salir de la pobreza y aquí están, montando y empaquetando muñecos de plástico, entre 14 y 18 horas al día, 15 minutos para comer, permisos reducidos para ir al servicio y cuatro horas para soñar que en realidad no están durmiendo en los cuchitriles situados…

It’s not a page, so you cannot just “Like” it, but you can ask for an invitation.
Once you’ve been counted in, please feel free to add any of your friends/contacts you think are aware too.
