Russian President Vladimir Putin has drafted a bill that aims to eliminate the US dollar and the Euro from trade between CIS countries. This means the creation of a single financial market between Russia, Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan and other countries of the former Soviet Union. “This would help expand the use of national currencies in foreign trade payments and financial services and thus create preconditions for greater liquidity of domestic currency markets”, said a statement from Kremlin.
The blog, goldseek.com, recently published a report on a Freedom of Information Act request they recently filed with the US government.

Quantitative easing is just the latest chapter in the Federal Reserve’s hundred-year history of failure. Despite this poor track record, Fed apologists still claim the American people benefit from the Federal Reserve System. But, if that were the case, why wouldn’t they welcome the opportunity to let the American people know more about monetary policy? Why is the Fed acting like it has something to hide if it has nothing to fear from an audit? The American people have suffered long enough under a monetary policy controlled by an unaccountable, secretive central bank. It is time to finally audit — and then end — the Fed.
When we say Bitcoin, we mean the idea: the birth of cryptocurrency. We know it’s not perfect. But we’re not after perfection, we’re after progression. We’re after a way out. And we will not stop.
What is the Federal Reserve? How did it come into existence? Is it part of the federal government? How does it create money? Why is the public kept in the dark about these important matters?

Did you know that every time the Federal Reserve (Fed) prints money (also known as quantitative easing), they are stealing your wealth without your knowledge. Ever since the Fed started printing fiat money, they have been creating money with little or no value.

Every decade or so, a group of like-minded people will invent something so revolutionary that it will change our life and how the world operates. The last time something that incredible happened was during the invention of the internet.

Whether we are aware of these great changes or not, they will alter how we view our financial, religious, educational and political systems. One of them is known as the Bitcoin Revolution

As the Federal Reserve celebrates its centennial, protests sprung up at all 12 Fed braches around the country on Monday. The day of action, called “FedUp 100,” calls attention to what protesters say is an institution that “exercises power in complete darkness.” The group also calls for the Fed to go from private to public by September 2014. Ameera David talks to Harrison Schultz, a FedUp 100 activist, and RT correspondent Perianne Boring about the planned protests and what they hope to accomplish.
Today the U.S. Federal Reserve has 100 candles to blow out on its birthday cake. Founded to prevent boom and bust economics, in its first century it’s faced many challenges – from double-digit inflation to near-depression. So on its anniversary, it seems the right time to ask – how is the FED actually doing? RT’s Marina Portnaya looks for the answer.
100 years ago, this December, the United States Congress created a central bank today, we know it as the Federal Reserve Bank of the United States. What most people don’t know is that the bank isn’t a federal entity and candidly, it really has nothing in reserves. Is the Federal Reserve good for the United States? Is it even possible to get rid of it?
