The current global, socioeconomic paradigm has allowed for a small group of mostly unidentified beneficiaries to reap hundreds of millions of dollars per day by way of interest payments. This cushy racket was all made possible by the Federal Reserves’ reverse repo program.
The impending collapse of the financial system as we know it looms on the horizon while those in a position to do so feed the crisis (and themselves) through endless money laundering schemes.
Whether it’s the war in Ukraine, Executive orders, experimental vaccines, the push for Solar panels and electric vehicles… there are few things being heavily marketed to the world today that weren’t designed to reap maximum profits for the financial elite in Davos Switzerland and the Washington DC political establishment.
In fact, Peter Schweitzer wrote a phenomenal book about how all of this works back in 2011 called Throw Them All Out, a highly recommended read for our audience.
In response to the record inflation, caused either by the reckless or intentionally destructive spending of the Biden Administration, the FED decided to raise interest rates by 75 basis points last month – the largest increase since 1994 – in an effort to slow the Bidenflation tidal wave.
To the surprise of no one, there’s been virtually no improvement to the economy since this change. Quite the contrary, as inflation continues to trend in the wrong direction since the FEDs rate raise. Not only that, but the FED revised its quarterly projections to show negative GDP growth will be expected for the second quarter in a row, essentially proclaiming that a recession isn’t on the horizon, it’s already here.
When faced with the hard decision to either help ease the economy back on track or raise interest rates to make the already skyrocketing inflation markedly worse, the FED chose the latter. This change quietly paved the way for a small group of mostly unidentified beneficiaries to start collecting hundreds of millions of dollars per day by way of interest payments, this is thanks to the Federal Reserve reverse repo program.
The program has seen a record 2.330 trillion in cash holdings, and interest payouts have ballooned since the aforementioned FED rate hike, totaling over 100 million per day. The 108 depositors, who hold assets in the fund, are the recipients of these absurd payouts.
As per Zerohedge:
there is a record $2.33 trillion in cash parked at the Fed’s overnight facility, doing nothing…
…Well not nothing: it was nothing when rates were zero, but at 1.55% which is the current reverse repo rate, that $2.33 trillion is a golden goose for the 108 counterparties that are parking cash at the facility, a mixture of money market funds, banks, GSEs and various other financial intermediaries.
How big is this particular Golden Goose? The chart below shows the payment in interest that the Fed makes day on this record $2.33 trillion in funds: as of today it amounts to just over $100 million every single day! That’s right, more than $100 million in interest payments on funds parked with the Fed, which is by definition the world’s only risk-free counterparty!
As ZeroHedge points out, the interest profits are only due to the FED’s past reckless spending.
Also from ZeroHedge:
“All of the above is with the Fed Funds rate at 1.75%. As a reminder, the Fed hopes to keep hiking at least another 175bps (or more) in the next 6 months, which will push the rate to 3.50% and will mean that the Fed will be paying half a billion in interest every single day to a handful of mostly unknown counterparties every day, money which for said counterparties is also known as (riskless) profit and which is only the result of the Fed’s previous money printing.”
