THE NEXT STAGE: FINANCIALIZING NATURE

You will want to pay attention to this article that was shared by K.M., because it represents the next step in crony crapitalism, and because it's by one of my favorite researchers, F. William Engdahl:

Wall Street's Diabolical Plan to Financialize all of Nature

Before diving into this article, I want to bring something to the reader's attention, something that I hope he will bear in mind as he reads this article because it bears directly on it. That something is "weather manipulation," including that weather manipulation that occurs via financial instruments such as weather derivatives.  With that in mind, let's extract a few paragraphs seriatim from Engdahl's article that explain what the next financial jackboot to drop will be:

It’s called a Natural Asset Company. With it the New York Stock Exchange has unveiled the most radical and potentially most destructive plan yet to make literally trillions of dollars on something that is the natural right and heritage of the entire human race—nature itself, all nature, from air, fresh water to rainforests to even farmland. It is being promoted as a way to incentivize the preservation of nature. In fact it is a diabolical scheme to financialize potentially trillions of dollars of nature, ultimately allowing a globalist financial elite to control even this. And the Rockefeller Foundation is a founding partner. The combination of the NYSE and that foundation ought to sound loud alarm bells .

The term financialize refers to the act of converting intangible value into financial instruments. Now hiding behind the fake facade of the Green Agenda that the UN and Davos WEF are promoting along with major OECD governments, Wall Street and the world’s largest financial institutions are promoting a scheme to financialize virtually all of nature. They even hired McKinsey and others to put a dollar value on it. They claim it all is worth 4 Quadrillion dollars or 4000 trillion dollars. Yet how can we put a dollar price on something given by nature?

Let's stop right there before we go on. Ever since the 2008-2009 financial crisis and bailouts, I've been more or less trying to get across the idea that the financial crisis is to a large extent unresolved and papered over, for the simple reason that the amount of derivates sloshing around in the system is still there, as estimates of the amount of those derivatives vary from 14 quadrillion to about 17 quadrillion dollars.  Or to make that point more bluntly, from $14,000,000,000,000,000.00 to $17,000,000,000,000,000.00.  Faced with such (reckless) numbers, I've argued on occasion that if Mr. Globaloney central bankster is still concerned with maintaining any semblance of financial sanity, all that bad paper will have to be made good, and the one way in the past that I've suggested that it might be done is to utilize or incorporate space assets into the system. Lo and behold, a few months after the disclosure of the derivatives numbers, "they" announced the discovery of an asteroid whose mineral wealth was coincidentally estimated to be around 14 quadrillion dollars.  All one needs to do is go out there, grab it, and mine it (or at least, say that one has... and there's the rub. Does anyone really trust these people?)

What a coincidence, huh?

The other way to do it is to financialize those assets not yet financialized on Earth, like water, and even weather systems (which they've already done through weather derivatives, and let's not forget those pandemic bonds). And of course, one can also do all of this in combinations of such instruments (and then bundle them into bundles of such instruments, and bundles of bundles, and so on. Sound familiar?)

Now back to Mr. Engdahl's article:

The NYSE project to create a new class of stocks—NACs or Natural Asset Companies, to be traded alongside stocks like Apple or Boeing or Chevron—was developed in a collaboration by the Rockefeller Foundation and something they founded known as the IEG group or Intrinsic Exchange Group.

What is the IEG? To quote from their website, IEG was created by the Rockefeller Foundation together with World Bank affiliate IDB of Latin America. Two years ago IEG began work on the NYSE project. Their “Strategic Advisor”, Robert Herz, was Chairman of the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) from 2002 to 2010. That says volumes about the thinking behind the IEG project. Herz today sits on the boards of many corporations including Morgan Stanley bank and US Government-sponsored real estate enterprise, Fannie Mae.

As they state on their website, IEG has created “a new asset class based on nature and the benefits that nature provides (termed ecosystem services). These services include carbon capture, soil fertility and water purification, amongst others.” They plan to bring this about by creation of the NYSE-recognized “new form of corporation called a ‘Natural Asset Company’ (NAC). The NYSE agreement will serve as their “platform to list these companies for trading, enabling the conversion of natural assets into financial capital. The NAC’s equity captures the intrinsic and productive value of nature and provides a store of value based on the vital assets that underpin our entire economy and make life on earth possible.” They further state, “IEG is proposing a transformational solution whereby natural ecosystems are not simply a cost to manage, but rather, an investible productive asset which provides financial capital and a source of wealth for governments and its citizens.” Note the “source of wealth for governments and it’s citizens.”

...

How it Works

The NAC is to be created through an IPO like any new stock listing. The NAC then publicly sells shares to investors who could include Institutional Investors such as BlackRock–the $9.5 trillion asset manager, the world’s largest–or Vanguard Group or, say, the Norwegian or Chinese Sovereign Wealth funds. BlackRock CEO Larry Fink conveniently sits on the board of Klaus Schwab’s World Economic Forum, promoters of UN Agenda 2030 and of the Great Reset of the global financial system to a “sustainable” one.

The IEG describes the possibilities: “…as the natural asset prospers, providing a steady or increasing flow of ecosystem services, the company’s equity should appreciate accordingly providing investment returns. Shareholders and investors in the company through secondary offers, can take profit by selling shares. These sales can be gauged to reflect the increase in capital value of the stock, roughly in-line with its profitability, creating cash-flow based on the health of the company and its assets.”

Where the Money Goes

Shares in the NAC can be bought by others but it will clearly be dominated by big financial actors as are all important stocks. The new company, say one which claims ownership of a part of the Amazon Rain Forest, will then be subject to accounting standards including a new IEG-created “Statement of Ecological Performance: The financial value of the flow of ecosystem services and the assets that produce them.” The value placed on the flow of ecosystem services is the key, and that is being controlled by people like IEG’s Robert Herz, a board member of Morgan Stanley bank.

As IEG states, via the NYSE platform, “IEG converts natural asset value to financial capital in order to provide owners a way to financially benefit from the value of their natural assets.” But the rewards would also go to the shareholders like BlackRock or others by creating “financial transactions valuing natural assets that allow institutional investors to recognize, participate in and preserve nature’s value.” That means to make a profit on their stocks. Here the door is wide open to manipulation. (Boldface emphasis added)

Now if you read that carefully, you'll note that this is largely a scheme simply to create more financial paper and manipulate its trading value. Notably, in Engdahl's summary, nothing is actually being produced other than a "valuation" of nature, which valuation is then collateralized and sold as shares in a natural asset company. Eventually, such a system will engulf other intangibles, such as the "energy" produced by a storm system, which will then be "valuated" and traded.  If that sounds completely nutty, that's because it is completely nutty, but that is where this ultimately leads.

I'm reminded of a video I saw years ago, in the early 1990s, that was produced by an accountant who was invited to attend the World Wilderness Congress during a meeting in southern Colorado. Volunteering to work during a gathering, which he assumed was simply about helping the environment and so on, he soon found himself shuttling important dignitaries from Denver to the conference location in southern Colorado, people like Maurice Strong and even a Rothschild, and he also discovered that what the congress was really about was about financializing the world's wilderness land as a new backing for currency.

My point in mentioning this episode is simply to point out how these people do plan ahead. In short, it's a scheme to seize and assert ownership over the planet.

The problem is ownership, and the dangers that Mr. Globaloney might be asserting a claim to ownership of something where there is a prior claim, something like, oh, I don't know, Psalm 24:1 maybe? "The Earth is the LORD's, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein."

One wonders how, should the occasion arise, they might answer a writ quo warranto in the local celestial Crown court.

But that's a speculation for another day.

See you on the flip side...

  1. These fools make the town drunk and the most stoned out junkie look like the most staunch pillars of society in comparison. Soulless Pod People or what to be Demons who have no idea of what reality is they fantasize that money and digital accounts on a computer is more real than nature they give a bad name to being stupid utterly childish.

  2. The language of ‘quid pro quo’
    May be heard in
    The ‘drawing rooms

  3. . . . “Psalm 24:1 maybe? “The Earth is the LORD’s, and the fulness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.”. . .

    It would seem that that someone, a loosely used pronoun for now, wants this coveted planet badly and think it’s for the taking with enough persuasion.

  4. An article of 2010 has following title: “A derivative approach to endangered species conservation” .

    Related to this are the “Catastrophe Bonds”, including natural and “technical” catastrophes which are then exchanged in some “live cat bond trading”. “Technical catastrophes” include terrorism, specially since 2001 (“Catastrophe risk, insurance and terrorism” in Economy and Society, 2004).

  5. This might be the scariest article you’ve ever shared Dr. Farrell. This isn’t a scheme to “simply create more financial paper and manipulate its trading value.”

    This is a scheme by TPTB to put a legal ownership claim on the planet itself through our national financial and justice systems. If they control the printing presses, they will eventually own all the NACs that go public. All assets that are securitized are eventually owned by the money printers. Derivatives and other fake money sloshing around the system is a camouflage and distraction for their money printing and other value extraction systems from sovereign nations (think bailouts and QE). They don’t need to collateralize any assets to cover anything. That’s an incomplete understanding of their system.

    This is a move to continue enslaving the population. To later invoice/tax people for the water and rain their NACs purified, tax farmers downstream from their NACs for the soil fertility they contributed to their farm lands, charge meat producers for the air their animals consume, tax humans for the oxygens their NACs produce, and at the same time, continue to gobble up all the matter around us in their ownership claims.

    Disgusting, repulsive, and loathsome.

    Anxiously waiting for such speculation.

    Pure and simple:
    This is a kiss of death for nature.

    I wonder about them: the devil in the details.
    On a planet, whose ownership title is about to become;
    shall we say… clouded?

    How will “they” weather it; when the absentee owners get wind of this?

    Not only are these “interesting times”;
    They’re also[running in parallel]
    w/out-of-this-world…
    Cosmic Times.

  8. Lol I WONDER 💭 how long it will take the “notice of demand” ta be ‘answered’ 😬 & umm kinda leaning toward ….’they’ ( our mad freak’n hatters) might NOT like their ….answer 😱😭😭😭🥵🤧🤧🤧🤧

  9. The amount of fake money doesn’t matter as long as it’s in the crooks hands. Their military, police and ruthlessness determines it’s value. And when everyone who matters is reliant upon it’s protected value to maintain their lifestyle then everyone will look away from how economics is suppose to work in determining the value of a currency. Now that most of the world’s resources, institutions, and industries has been stolen using fake money printed out of thin air it is game over. All that matters to them is the amount in others hands, not theirs. Can’t let the slaves have too much to lower it’s value. So far we don’t and are going broke so inflation is whatever they say it is to control us.

      INRI said, that he brought Armalite, not peace. Technically he said “sword”, yet a modern equivalent to a sword is a semi-auto.

      INRI told his loyal men, to bring money, to buy firearms, and if they had no money, they should sell their fancy clothes.

      Notice, that papacy, monopolizing the INRI narrative, is also spearheading the New World Order, like a fox guarding chickens.

      One doesn’t make omelet without breaking eggs. The Holy Grail is a Scythian cranial cult.

  10. I’m reminded that an analogy of property rights is a bundle of sticks. You may own property, but you don’t own all the sticks: you have to pay property taxes, if coal or oil is discovered you can’t stop its extraction, local zoning boards can make rules re: how you use it, etc. etc.

    I’m betting this is intended to become another ‘stick’ added to the bundle. Sure you own a 160 acre farm, but Klaus Schmidt is the CEO of the prairies so he can tell you how many cows you can graze in order to maximize the ‘value’ of Prairie Environment LLC. It’s just a coincidence that your 160 acres is allotted 0 cattle and can only plant native wildflowers while Bill Gates’ 2,000,000 acres has no restrictions on it.

    1. The ownership of real property in America is that of a Fee Simple absolute interest, a Hypothetical Condition nonetheless. An absolute Fee Simple interest is the manner in which property owners hold title to their land, even if it has been mortgaged. It is without limitations to any particular class of heirs or restrictions, it is an inheritable estate, but subject to the limitations of police power, eminent domain, taxation and escheat. The actual interest is more liken to a Fee Simple Defeasible estate in that certain “absolute” rights of use are restricted. The main ones to be concerned with are zoning laws and deed covenants.

      Police power, zoning, eminent domain, and taxation could become real problems in the future. But, are these ‘bugaboos’? Being radiated into the minds of many persons? Meaning ‘They’ may actually be radiating real or imaginary fear, and obsessive anxiety into the minds of many people in order to provoke certain responses. Think about it. Pray for knowledge and wisdom. Plus, it will definitely help to be on good terms with your neighbors, keep personal protection tools operational, and vote.

  11. Arguably,
    Psalm 24:1 Can be regarded as preamble to statements made iin Psalm 37:9-38
    https://www.kingjamesbibleonline.org/Psalms-Chapter-37/#11

    09 For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth.

    10 For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: yea, thou shalt diligently consider his place, and it shall not be.

    11 But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.

    12 The wicked plotteth against the just, and gnasheth upon him with his teeth.

    13 The Lord shall laugh at him: for he seeth that his day is coming.

    14 The wicked have drawn out the sword, and have bent their bow, to cast down the poor and needy, and to slay such as be of upright conversation.

    15 Their sword shall enter into their own heart, and their bows shall be broken.

    16 A little that a righteous man hath is better than the riches of many wicked.

    17 For the arms of the wicked shall be broken: but the LORD upholdeth the righteous.

    18 The LORD knoweth the days of the upright: and their inheritance shall be for ever.

    19 They shall not be ashamed in the evil time: and in the days of famine they shall be satisfied.

    20 But the wicked shall perish, and the enemies of the LORD shall be as the fat of lambs: they shall consume; into smoke shall they consume away.

    21 The wicked borroweth, and payeth not again: but the righteous sheweth mercy, and giveth.

    22 For such as be blessed of him shall inherit the earth; and they that be cursed of him shall be cut off.

    23 The steps of a good man are ordered by the LORD: and he delighteth in his way.

    24 Though he fall, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the LORD upholdeth him with his hand.

    25 I have been young, and now am old; yet have I not seen the righteous forsaken, nor his seed begging bread.

    26 He is ever merciful, and lendeth; and his seed is blessed.

    27 Depart from evil, and do good; and dwell for evermore.

    28 For the LORD loveth judgment, and forsaketh not his saints; they are preserved for ever: but the seed of the wicked shall be cut off.

    29 The righteous shall inherit the land, and dwell therein for ever.

    30 The mouth of the righteous speaketh wisdom, and his tongue talketh of judgment.

    31 The law of his God is in his heart; none of his steps shall slide.

    32 The wicked watcheth the righteous, and seeketh to slay him.

    33 The LORD will not leave him in his hand, nor condemn him when he is judged.

    34 Wait on the LORD, and keep his way, and he shall exalt thee to inherit the land: when the wicked are cut off, thou shalt see it.

    35 I have seen the wicked in great power, and spreading himself like a green bay tree.

    36 Yet he passed away, and, lo, he was not: yea, I sought him, but he could not be found.

    37 Mark the perfect man, and behold the upright: for the end of that man is peace.

    38 But the transgressors shall be destroyed together: the end of the wicked shall be cut off.

      The kingship of David is not based on Runes, because the Runes were regretfully not invented at the time. The Runes are a Scythian-British invention.

      The headache of Samuel was to appoint a leadership, one clan, to rule them all, that couldn’t be undone – to paraphrase Tolkien.

      The Runes represents the final solution to Samuel’s problem, by introducing an IQ-test, that would have disqualified David.

      One has to have broken the sixth seal, to be considered a rightful king. That is metaphorically drawing sword from stone.

    2. Do we even truly know exactly, who this “Lord” of the Old Testament IS??? Because of childhood brainwashing, a great many of us were taught to think that he was the Creator of All….but at age, 77, I am beginning to doubt that.

      We were sold a perfectly wrapped Package of Beliefs which have not been seriously questioned by any of us. It took me a good deal of research to come to the conclusion that the Jesus Story we were handed was really a Mechanism with which to control the masses…..AND…it succeeded!!!

      We need to take a closer look at how this System of Christianity did, or did not help Humanity in the general sense!

      1. Genesis is construction of settlers sun cross, by four intersecting rivers (major directions), to observe celestial movement, by time-compass (卐).

        Elohim-Yahweh is a dual concept of astronomical and agricultural year, by observing sun’s run through zodiac, and seasonal changes.

        Father Christmas is an angelic footnote, to entertain the youngest, and a popular representation of solstice calculation.

        Behind the myth there is science, in geometry, and behind INRI there is politics, of a tin trade millennium.

          After the failed campaign of Crassus, the Romans sought means, to counter the tactics of the Parthian shot.

          The Saka-Scythian, as unbound Isaacs, became of interest, for recruitment, explaining the aqueduct plans in Jerusalem.

          Scythian horses needed water, and Caiaphas, who speculated in water scarcity, during drought, became a hindrance.

          Pontius Pilate was auxiliary brass, assigned to oversee the engineering task.

  12. anakephalaiosis

    The Assyrian attempt, by deportation, to profit from from the Israelite tin trade, may have succeeded at first, having de facto taken control of the local seaports.

    But then the Assyrians lost control of the unbound Isaacs, who became mounted archery, that developed the highly skilled Parthian shot, in asymmetrical warfare.

    That automatically leads to a secondary seaport, and that can only be Troy, later destroyed, by Greek mercenaries in Assyrian pay, and covered up, by Greek propaganda.

    Assyrian attempt, to financialize the Israelite lifeline of tin trade, unleashed the Comanche of the Eurasian steppe – the four horsemen – the unbound Isaacs, later known as Saxons.

    Nature strikes back, on horseback, as battle-ax of Yahweh.
