Real Reason for Lehman Bros. Collapse? Another Insane International Tribunal ...


Finance tribunal opens to settle disputes ... Disputes arising from complex transactions can be put for possible resolution at the world's first international specialist finance tribunal from Monday.

The problem is NOT that there is no prestigious and final word from a judicial authority on these insane instruments. The problem is that they exist at all.

They are purely the flotsam and jetsam of central banking. By printing endless amounts of money from nothing, the great central banking families that control tens and even hundreds of trillions of dollars have entirely distorted the world's economy.
