Central bankers around the world have watched a live tutorial of FED creating 5x money without trigger any inflation, now they want to do the same

It is really a pity that people can not do anything about this kind of robbery, they even desperately depend on fiat money to make a living

Sweden can't go on the way they are now forever. I've heard they are giving ridiculous amounts of welfare over there. If they did this only for swedish born people it's maybe ok if they can afford it, but all that immigration will make the system collapse guaranteed.

I don't think that they have problems due to their social security, that is fairly normal in Scandinavia, they pay high taxes and have lots of services, it's a very successful system there.  Immigration doesn't seem to be much of a problem either.

In this case their problem is that they are doing so much better than the eurozone, so need to purposely mess up their currency so that it doesn't massively appreciate against the main trading partners, thus they punish people for buying Krona.

It would be ironic to see them go to hell for it, though I don't think it's going to happen.
Hope the deviation doesn't last long and they know what they're doing.

Actually just saw a thread here in Bitcointalk.org about a swedish guy that says he's getting 1.000 USD by "doing nothing". Apprently he got diagnosed with aspergers syndrome or autism, and they give him 1.000 USD... thats amazing. The guy doesn't even seem to be that different from your typical nerdy/geek/introvert guy. In any other country he wouldn't get anything.

There is an immigration problem in Sweden, it's about young entrepreneurs who are moving abroad of this communist country because of the tax and regulatory burden. The country is a terrible failure for the young who would not dare do anything outside of the umbrella of the nanny state. So the few braves are leaving and I guess that someday there will be only civil servants left in Sweden.

Deflation will just move the country quicker to a standstill.

The only solution is free markets; not central banks or corrupted capitalism. And Bitcoin may be the key here.

The Federal Reserve token funded by member banks and commercial banks, neither of which have voting stock.  It is wholly controlled by the US government.

BTC's total price instability would be hellish compared to the largest conventional currencies.
yes, bitcoin still has many issues to be fixed. But bitcoin's decentralized feature is a great supplement to the fiat currency. It could exist side by side with fiat currency!

That's just a blatantly contradictory statement, you just said that commercial banks own the federal reserve, that means it isn't 'wholly' conrolled by the US government, pick one or the other, anyway, we here all know the federal reserve is a private bank, as are most central banks, no matter how much people try to lie otherwise.

I am no socialist, but I think it is better that taxes are high and services are good, than the middle road that most countries go, middle taxes, crappy services
The other option of having very low taxes to allow the rich to screw over the masses, i.e. the American system, also doesn't really appeal to me.

If they do have a big immigration problem, it will be because it is doing so well as a country.  I can imagine a lack of entrepreneurialism being caused by the system, but when I have been there it always seems pretty forward think, especially in comparison with Germany.

Guys you are in a false paradigm.

It doesnt matter if the central bank is privately owned, or if its national. It's the same deal.

In both cases it's owned by a tyrranical money hungry and power hungry coalition.

The only way the central bank can become benevolent is if it ceases to exist, and let the market determined interest rates decide the interest rate, while letting each bank print it's own money, and let the market decide which currency to use.

Pure smithian capitalism of free market is the solution, not some corporative-fascist powerhungry group.

I understand how a country like Norway can get away with stuff like that because they are oil rich, but not sweden afaik.

The Riksbank cut its repo rate by 0.15 percentage points to -0.25 percent and said it was buying government bonds worth 30 billion kronor ($3.4 billion, 3.2 billion euros) to prevent an appreciating krona from hindering an uptick in inflation.

This is utter madness... Yet things like this get from minimal to no coverage from the major media outlets.

According to the Banking Act as of 1935, the president of the US appoints the seven members of the Board of Governors (the main governing body of the Federal Reserve). The nominees should then be confirmed by the Senate. I don't know for sure whether the POTUS and the Senate members are appointed by private bankers...

Government know nothing about banking (otherwise they would have already created their own money and never need to borrow from FED), so they can only appoint some bankers to do the job, these regional reserve bankers of course are regarded as the expert in the banking area. This is similar to: When you are trying to appoint the CEO of microsoft, no candidate is better than Bill Gates, even Senate will agree, because none of the politicians have the slightest idea about how windows works

The terrible truth is, none of the politicians understand how today's monetary system works, they can only believe what bankers told them, and they only care about borrowing a little bit more from banks, that's more important for them

When you have high taxes and great welfare and services, you will start to have higher immigration, then you'll need more government to process the extra people. Pretty soon you get a whole lot of people getting something for nothing, and a whole lot of government handing it out to them, and nobody building the economy. Government doesn't produce anything, it can only spend.  Who's going to pay for it all?

Sweden is seen like a role-model in terms of social welfare, health and education in the whole of southern Europe. Literally, I've heard the Scandinavian countries mentioned as something to follow in the parliament.

It can only work because of Scandinavian mentality.  These people are terribly strict and almost incorruptible. The level of social control is very high.  Maybe it is due to the severe nature over there, but Swedish (and Scandinavians in general) are like robots that obey to the rules.  To give you an example:
I took a bus there, and the machine to discount a fare from your electronic multi-pass didn't work.  So the driver told me (and others) to "count two fares the next day if I took a bus again".  The next day, I saw many people actually DO that.  It was a different driver, btw.  He didn't know.  So people told him that they wanted to pay twice because they had gotten a free ride the day before !

Go and try such a thing in Italy Smiley
