TRANSCRIPT:
Hey everybody. Jeff Nabers, here it is Thursday, September 19th when I’m recording this, you’ll probably get this in the afternoon, maybe early morning Friday, and this is a kind of potentially momentous time. Okay. The Federal Reserve has just done three bailouts this week for the first time in over 10 years since the global financial crisis in 2008 so what’s going on? Who’s getting bailed out and what does this lead to? That’s what we’re going to talk about in this video. Okay. A couple of news stories. We’ll start with here. I’ll share my screen. You see from the Wall Street Journal, fed injects more money into money markets after banks bid heavily for funds. Then you see fed add billion to the financial system and the third repo transaction. This week here we’ve got an explainer from Reuters. The Fed has a repo problem. What’s that? And then kind of a related story on CNBC fed loses control of its own interest rate as it cuts rates.

This just doesn’t look good. Says the headline. Okay, well, I’ll put links to those stories so you can read them below the video here. So what’s going on here? Well, first off you’re going to see this is all about repo markets and the Federal Reserve is doing repo operations or repo transactions. Okay? What’s happening is the mainstream media is treading lightly. They don’t want to use the B word. They don’t want to alarm anyone, but the truth is we’re going to have to use the B word if we want to talk plainly in ways we can understand. These are bailouts directly quoted from a text message I received this morning from the CEO of a nationally chartered bank here in the United States, billion bail out Monday, billion bailout, Tuesday billion bailout Wednesday. This seems to have no stopping point and quote. What are repo markets now to understand repo markets, what they are and why they exist.

We need to go back to look at banks in a particular fractional reserve banking. The way fractional reserve banking works is if you have some money that you want to deposit, and I’m a bank, let’s say you deposit 0,000 at my bank, I’m going to then lend 90,000 of your dollars out to somebody else and earn interest on that and then I’m going to keep 10,000 of your 100,000 as reserves, but when you log into the online portal or get a statement from me, it’s going to say, I have your 0,000 or your 0,000 is in my bank. That’s not entirely true. I don’t have most of your money. I have a tiny sliver. I have that ,000 of your money. The rest of money I’ve loaned out to somebody else, but can’t you withdraw that from your checking account? Yes, of course. If you come and say, I would like to withdraw the 0,000 now I have to give it to you, but guess what?

It’s not your hundred thousand dollars because I’ve loaned most of that to somebody else. I’m going to have to give you somebody else’s 0,000 then at night, when I go to balance my books, if I’ve had too many withdrawals and I end up short on the amount that I need to have as a bank, then I’m going to go into these repo markets and I’m going to borrow money from other banks. So tonight I’m going to go borrow money from another bank. You know, maybe tomorrow I’ll have a surplus and they’ll be short and they’ll borrow money from me. Now the first thing most people think when they hear about fractional reserve banking is they’ll say, isn’t that a Ponzi scheme? The answer is technically yes, it’s a Ponzi scheme. But the reason it doesn’t collapse, you know, five minutes after a bank opens is because of the repo market.

The repo market is a way to sort of try to shore up the banking system. And the banking system works by essentially kind of socializing among the banking industry, the shortages, those are shored up by another bank. And that’s a bit about how repo markets work and why they exist. They exist so that banks don’t collapse really frequently and during normal operations. Next question you might be wondering is, well, why did the Federal Reserve have to bail out the repo markets? Well, the Federal Reserve injected now over 0 billion this week into repo markets because

  1. The American public is caught in a currency trap initiated during Andy Jackson's term, and cemented during Teddy's compliant assistance.  EVERY financial crisis is initiated by the fed, since it consists of the Masters of the universe – the international money managers.  Jamie Dimon  believes in minus zero reserves, because they are such "honest" managers.

  2. The most important part you left out was why banks don't trust each other. The Repo market is short for repurchase market. In other words, banks typically borrow from each other short term; normally overnight. But, the way it works is banks need to put up collateral for the money. Generally, the next day or two the bank repays the money, with interest, essentially repurchasing back their collateral. What happened in 2008 is that big banks did not trust the smaller banks, as their collateral was suspicious. AAA mortgage backed securities were being tendered for the Repo loans. As all banks are greedy and corrupt, they all knew they might not get their money back and might be stuck with toxic securities. No one with excess reserves wanted to lend to banks such as Lehman Brothers and Merrill Lynch and they went under. Today the same exact thing is happening, but instead of just toxic mortgages we also have toxic auto and student loans. We also have credit card and other forms of unsecured debt that are also going more and more into default; think 90+ days behind. Again, the banks don't trust each other. So, instead of the whole house of cards coming down, the Fed is printing money out of thin air and lending it to the "too big to fail" banks. The US tax payer will ultimately get stuck with the bill. The fiat US dollar is in its twilight years. Who really knows what is next, but having something tangible in hand seems prudent.

  3. Good video, I’m just learning this stuff. So what do we do? What happens to our 401k? Should we keep cash and eliminate regular savings since the interest is insignificant anyway?

  4. Timothy Springston

    House of cards, the whole Goddamn things gonna go up in smoke and make 1929 look like a nominal occurrence. Everything is propped up to favor a small percentage of plutocrats, when the bottom falls out folks that invested in lodges, camps, hoarding, gold ,and guns will fare the best.

  5. Signs of the times. Get ready people. We're all going to die! Get your life right with Christ which is worth more than silver and gold!

    Proverbs 22:1 A GOOD name is rather to be chosen than great riches, and loving favour rather than silver and gold.

  6. In short…we are in trouble. Get your money out of the banks now. You can always put it back in once we have a clear understanding what's going on. When experts in this field don't have a clear answer…get out!

  7. One would think the Fed would only bail out a Bank if significant size. Unless the FED is obligated due to FDIC – is that a reason?

  8. What is interesting, and not many of these videos regarding repo mention this, these 100s of billions of dollars is entering the system out of thin air. This liquidity is not returned to the FED or anything, it's just pumped into the money supply. And when we even lower the interest rate further, how much more liquidity is going to need to be created?

  9. China is collecting billions on US debt and using the dollars to buy missile Technology from russia and increase its traid with Iran and other countries.
