Ed: If the dollar is replaced by the euro, we would have almost a 50% devalution.
"What might trigger a fatal run on the dollar in world markets?
While a broad and abrupt selloff by major foreign holders of dollars — for example, China — appears unlikely,
a cataclysmic event, similar to the outbreak of World War I in 1914, could prompt a search for a new international medium of exchange.
In the modern era of automated payments, the upheaval might come from a terrorist attack that undermines the computerized transfer facilities of the world's banking system. A
catastrophic loss of electronic records could surely destroy the credibility of the dollar as the international medium of exchange."

Two premier financial centers:
"But the euro does have growing strengths. At current market exchange rates, the European Union is now larger economically than the US. New central and eastern European members are bringing enormous dynamism and flexibility. At the same time, the European Central Bank has gained considerable credibility from its handling of the global credit crisis. Indeed, if the euro zone can persuade Great Britain to become a full-fledged member, thereby acquiring one of the world's two premier financial centers (London), the euro might start to look like a viable alternative to the dollar"

2008 -- Partying like it's 1929 
"Contrary to popular belief, the stock market crash of 1929 wasn’t the defining moment of the Great Depression. What turned an ordinary recession into a civilization-threatening slump was the wave of bank runs that swept across America in 1930 and 1931.
This banking crisis of the 1930s showed that unregulated, unsupervised financial markets can all too easily suffer catastrophic failure.

Wall Street chafed at regulations that limited risk, but also limited potential profits. And little by little it wriggled free — partly by persuading politicians to relax the rules, but mainly by creating a “shadow banking system” that relied on complex financial arrangements to bypass regulations designed to ensure that banking was safe

The 3rd Horseman of the Apocalypse
"And when he had opened the third seal, I heard the third beast say,
'Come and see'. And I beheld , and lo a black horse;
and he that sat on him had a pair of balances in his hand."

And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts say,

"A day's wages for a loaf of bread"

(updated translation)

"and see thou hurt not the oil and the wine" (luxuries).

The above verses tell us that hard times are coming....inflation, and then galloping
hyper-inflation. It will not be equal across the board, for the rich will be getting richer
(note the luxuries of wine and oil are still maintained) while the poor are getting poorer.
For most of us it will take one whole day of labor just to purchase one's daily bread.

That was what it was like in Germany just before Hitler. They called that depression
"Weimar Germany" and it took a wheelbarrow full of money just to purchase a loaf of
bread. Desperate times bring up false messiahs. It did then and it will soon again....

"Make us your slaves but feed us" cries Dostoevsky's novel
(The Brothers Karamasov)...
It IS the economy, world-leader.
Now, while it may be the economy that matters, it is NOT the money.
Money will become worthless in the Last Days. This will be due to hyper-inflation.

REVIEWING THE BASICS

Let's do a quick -course on money in America.
First of all, the government prints money. It's called "fiat money", meaning it is backed up by FAITH ALONE. It lacks the integrity and discipline of a Gold Standard; in other
words, it is not backed up ( or loans limited) by Gold reserves. It is backed up by nothing. So basically, there are no "checks and balances" should there be a runaway economy.
If there is not enough paper money in circulation, we just print more paper, which makes all the paper money in circulation become worthless.


Well, as more and more money gets printed, prices go up . This constant raising of prices is called "inflation". As we keep loosing more and more ground, the pace picks up and
lo, we have galloping inflation, otherwise known as hyper-inflation.

--June 2005
http://www.worldnetdaily.com/news/article.asp?ARTICLE_ID=44572

As prices rise, savings dwindle...
"To make matters worse, the system tries to choke the galloping horse by bridling it with hikes in interest rates. In other words, we're hampered in taking out loans so that we
won't have so much money in the red (national debt). The more it costs us to get a loan
(the rise in interest rates) the less likely will one get a loan.

When interest rates go up, businesses stop expanding and there is no more growth. Then we have stagnation, and unemployment, all while the maddening hyper-inflation rides on.

"A day's wages for a loaf of bread"
.

"At this point, panic sets in.
Now, society is ready to accept anyone or anything that will save us from this insanity.
Just like Hitler promised the Weimar Republic. They fell for it, bargaining with the devil for their false messiah.
Yet more Germans starved under Hitler than under any other previous form of German government. So much for desperate deception"

"But what about all the gold and money I've stashed away for these days?", one asks.
Well, this is what Ezekiel 7:19 says:

"They shall cast their silver in the streets, and their gold shall be removed: their silver
and their gold shall not be able to deliver them in the day of the wrath of the LORD".

And James 5:1-6 says
"Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you.
Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are moth-eaten.
Your gold and silver is cankered;
and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and
shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the Last Days.

Behold the hire of the laborers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept
back by fraud, crieth; and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears
of the Lord of Sabaoth (the Lord of the heavenly armies)

Ye have lived in pleasure on the earth, and have been wanton; ye have nourished
your hearts, as in a day of slaughter.
Ye have condemned and killed the just; and he doth not resist you."

Both Ezekiel and James confirm the fact that gold and silver (money) will be worthless in
the Last Days. We explained how paper money will become worthless, because of
hyper-inflation, and now we will see why even precious metals will be useless. That is because at
some point in this madness, a "savior-system" will come along and bring in a cashless
economy....computerized units in virtual bank accounts. So all of our backup precious metals will
do us no good. In fact, it will probably become illegal to own gold, and the government
may even call in all gold, just like it did in the Great Depression. (1933)


Zephaniah 1:11 "All they that bear (trade in) silver are cut off "
Zephaniah 1:18 says: "Neither their silver nor their gold shall be able to deliver
them in the day of the LORD's wrath"

If you are a loyal subject within the Politically-correct System, well then, no problem. But if you are 'unwilling' ---shall we say (politically-incorrect)-- then your banking account just might evaporate-- and voila, you and
your account don't exist. Vaporized in cyberspace. No fuss, no muss, no tell-tale-trail.

Countdown to a cashless society
We read in Zechariah Chapter 5:
"Then the angel that talked with me went forth, and said unto me, Lift up now thine eyes, and see what is this that goeth forth.

And I said , 'What is it?' And he said,"This is an ephah "( market basket )
that goeth forth. He said moreover.
This is their (WTO-World Trade Organization ) resemblance (symbol) through all the earth.
And behold , there was lifted up a talent (weight) of lead: and this is a woman
(e-commerce) that sitteth in the midst of the market basket (ephah).

And he said 'This is wickedness (666 System). And he cast it into the midst of the ephah (market basket) and he cast the weight of lead upon the mouth thereof.
Then I lifted up mine eyes, and looked, and behold, there came out
2 women".
Possible interpretation:
The two women could be
1. e-Commerce (cashless society using only virtual-units)
2. and the 666 Religion of worshipping the Beast System
by taking the imbedded 666 mark for all purchasing, as a sign of allegiance. (please see Shopping with 666 ....
hopetotheend.com/ch1p1.html

Continuing on:
"and the wind" (meaning 'S.W.I.F.T'? 
hopetotheend.com/ode.html ) "was in their wings
for they had wings like the wings of a stork (huge) and
they lifted up the market basket (ephah) between the earth and the heaven (cyberspace)
Then said I to the angel that talked with me,
'Whither do these bear the market basket (ephah)?
And he said to me,"To build it an house in the land of Shinar
( Culpeper, Virginia ?? Brussels, Belgium ?? ).....
and it shall be established, and set there upon her own base." (a virtual entity)
Zechariah 5:5-11

From that passage in the Bible we come to see that marketing will be "between the earth and the heaven"... it will be in cyberspace. All buying and selling will be digital, eventually by a scan of the right hand or forehead,
tracking one's 666 unique number into databanks.
Without that number and fingerprint, no purchases. Without consumerism, no food. Without food, no you or me.
We are closely approaching that hour.

Will we wake up one morning with the banks closed and no way to write checks or
withdraw money? Well, we need not fear, for we've already been through a scenario like that before, about 60 years ago. We survived it then and we will survive it again.



WAKING UP IS HARD TO DO

On March 6, 1933 the American public woke up to the news that all banks were closed
across the land. There was no warning and it lasted for 10 DAYS
(2 business weeks). Those caught empty-handed had no money for food, transportation, rent-payment, medical necessities etc. etc. etc. Many people went without. It was unprecedented in all of history.

Also, the owning of Gold became illegal at this time. The government called in all gold
coins, certificates, bullion, whatever. It was no longer legal to own. Anyone caught
owning gold was arrested for felony, punishable by 10 years in jail for hoarding, and a
$10,000 fine, plus their gold confiscated.
By the way, that law is still on the books today, under emergency measures.
The government at any time and for whatever reason can declare: 'Own gold, go to jail.'

This broke the financial power and influence of the middle class (many of the rich were
still rich). That was the prelude to the real objective: control of the masses.
That came about with the closure of all banks on March 6, 1933.
"Black Monday"
(It is mis-named "bank-holiday". It was NO holiday. It was a nightmare of staggering proportions. It was illegal, and arbitrary.

How did this tyranny take place? Under who's watch? Well, F.D. Roosevelt
employed the War Powers Act of 1917 to usurp all kinds of authority. The problem was,
we were not at war. So everything he did was totally and unequivocally
UNCONSTITUTIONAL. How did we reward him for installing himself as king?
We voted him in for 3 terms...again unprecedented in all of history.

DE JA VU (already seen)

Now, can that banking scenario be repeated today? Yes. Having Control is addictive.
Paying off our debts is always sound.
We must make an extra effort, while being reasonable, about our daily concerns.
"Forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors" Matthew 6:12
Most of all,
we must not panic, worry or be anxious for anything. Philippians 4:6. hopetotheend.com/sparo.html
"Don't worry about anything; instead, pray about everything" Philippians 4 (Living New Testament)

God will work a way for those who trust Him enough to ask Him ."Ye have not, because ye ask not"James 4:2
But it is for certain that hard times are ahead. The 6th Chapter of Revelation tells us so.
Can we endure hardship as a good soldier? 2 Timothy 2:3

"I counsel thee to buy of Me gold tried in the fire" Revelation 3:18
"and I will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried."
Zechariah 13:9

This will be a time when "men's hearts are failing them for fear, and for looking after these things which ARE COMING upon the earth ( Luke 21:26). Many will be tempted to commit suicide. Suicide is a permanent solution to a temporary problem. We must be strong in the face of adversity.
We must Hold On
hopetotheend.com/holdon.html
We must keep going by the grace of God.

(Isaiah 41:10,13...Isaiah 43:1,2....."When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers they shall not overflow thee: when thou walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee."

Let's review for a moment. Soon there is coming a hyper-inflation whereby all goods
will be so high priced, as to be unavailable to some.
Food will be rationed. Leviticus 26:26

Yet the Bible tells us that there will be a quick-fix.
"And I saw one of his heads (1 of the 7 economic leaders of global economy) as it were
wounded to death (stock market crash?? ) and his deadly wound was healed:
and all the world wondered after the beast". Revelation/Apocalypse 13:3

Amazingly,
a man will step forth with a plan. Perhaps it will be a zero-based
economy...re-inventing global economics. (

Emergency measures will be implemented (executive orders...

Even so, the poor will still be poor and struggling, perhaps starving.
No politician has ever been able to eliminate the poor.
Matt. 26:11; Mark 14:7; John 12:8


Our own deliverance will be our trust in God:

"Behold, the eye of the LORD is upon them that fear Him, upon them that hope in
His mercy: To deliver their soul from death, and to keep them alive in famine."....
Let thy mercy, O LORD be upon us,
according as we hope in Thee."
Psalm 33:18-22

"They (the upright) shall not be ashamed in the evil time: and in the days of famine they
shall be satisfied" Psalm 37:19

Job 5:20 "In famine, He shall redeem thee from death". (see all of Job 5: 20-23)

"The LORD is my Shepherd; I shall not want". Psalm 23:1

Yet always the grace of God is not owed to anyone. His plans and purposes are beyond
our finite minds. That is why we must also say,
" Though he (satanic system ) slay me, yet will I trust in Him"
Job 13:15

For we know that beyond the doors of death lies a kingdom worth dying for.
Romans 8:18




Wither the Harvest?

The 3rd Horseman of the Apocalypse concerns itself mostly with hyper-inflation and the
scarcity of goods. This
scarcity of food is not only because of y2k and economic
conditions, but also because of
hardships in agriculture: drought, heat waves, freak
storms and pests. This condition leads us into the
4th Horseman of the Apocalypse
.....plagues and death. But that will be dealt with in another article.

For now
, hard times are ahead for America and the world. (Deuteronomy 28:15-23)
Our every meal prayer should be,
"Thank you God for the privilege of eating today".
We are to put our trust in the Lord whether we are raptured, or remain; whether we eat well, or eat with rations."The LORD is my portion" Lamentations 3:22-25
He is, and always will be our Provider; and He has promised to be
with us always even unto the end of this age."Matthew 28.


Economic Stimulus and a WORKS program -- Then, and NOW

Just like FDR ( Franklin Delano Roosevelt) had a CCC government works-program to combat unemployment,
it appears that we are headed in the same direction. This will include alternative-energy jobs ( the "greens") as well as the infrastructure, of roads, bridges, electrical grids, schools etc. ) and working for the government : State, Federal and local.

"Ian Bowles, Massachusetts secretary of energy and environmental affairs, was thrilled to hear clean energy right up there with roads and bridges. "You could do a huge amount of economic stimulus for the clean energy industry if you were putting large funds towards subsidizing solar power,'' Bowles said, or "towards helping modernize our electricity grid to allow more wind development ... I think what you're seeing now in the discussion is if we're going to make this large investment, let's align it with our energy and environmental priorities and make as green a stimulus package as possible.''

"Mark Zandi, chief economist with Moody's economy.com, is urging Obama to add state governments to his stimulus list. "One kind of stimulus, good efficacious stimulus, would be help the state governments get through these budgetary problems so that they don't have to make those cuts, they don't have to raise taxes right now,''

McFadden Act

The McFadden Act makes it illegal for interstate branch banking to occur anywhere in the United States. It has never been repealed. Yet, we have full-fledged branch banking.
The waters are very murky, indeed, as to whether interstate branch banking legislation is legal. It may violate federal law... the McFadden Act of 1927, and the National Bank Act of 1863. I can’t say I have the greatest understanding of how federal law works, but I always thought that you could not write a new federal law that contradicts an old federal law without repealing the old law
