Škanál LIBOR prijmä ľudí zamyslieť sa nad úsporami

LIBOR škandál sa udial v srdci finančného systému. Manipulácia ceny/hodnoty peňazí bola vykonávaná pre z politických dôvodov s kvôli ziskom. Aká je potom skutočná hodnota peňazí? Po tomto škandále sa nemôžme čudovať, že mnoho ľudí začne rozmýšľať uchovávať svoje financie v inej forme, napr. aj v drahých kovoch. Mimochodom, čo dnes vo finančnom svete (a nie len v ňom) nie je manipulované...?! 21. storočie začalo škandálmi a podvodmi - Enron, dot.com bublina, hypotekárna kríza, záchrana bánk, LIBOR. A to je ešte len začiatok. Čo môžme očakávať na konci tejto "demokratickej" éry?

LIBOR scandal rolls on in the United Kingdom while rest of the world is observing developments unfolding. The LIBOR scandal is at the very heart of our financial system, the apparent manipulation of the cost/price of money itself according to political and profit motives. Money is the basis of society, the great facilitator, the measuring stick. What should upset people in the UK most is the fact that the value of the pound, the cost of money, and financial instruments that affect us can potentially be fiddled. Could it be this scandal feels typical of this contemporary era of ‘high finance’?

When digesting the LIBOR scandal, and hearing more neo-Keynesian clap trap from the likes of Paul Krugman, I couldn’t help but remember why I was drawn to the Austrian school of economics.

The LIBOR scandal is just another straw to add to the camel’s back, in terms of confidence in the current monetary system. The pound may not be a reserve currency anymore, but it is important nonetheless. Interest rates affect the value of our money, when it appears this can be fiddled it’s no wonder savers thinking of holding their savings in other forms. Gold bullion anyone?
