A new global Glass-Steagall

Glass-Steagall is the indispensible first step to global economic recovery. It will immediately halt the onset of hyperinflation, remove government committment from toxic debts, end too-big-to-fail, and force separation of commercial banking functions from investment banking functions.


Glass-Steagall for Australia

The London and Wall Street-centred world financial bubble is today far larger than in 2008. To avoid a financial collapse and a likely new world war, we must cancel the bubble: split the "too big to fail" megabanks into speculative investment banks (with no government protection), vs. normal banks which invest in the real economy. The CECís new pamphlet, Glass Steagall Now!, tells you exactly how to do it.

Demand your MP support: Glass-Steagall for Australia
The Citizens Electoral Council has this week issued a new pamphlet on the urgent need to break up Australia’s big four banks through a Glass-Steagall-style banking separation.
Glass-Steagall for Australia explains how only by enacting a local form of the U.S. Glass-Steagall Act’s strict separation between deposit-taking commercial banks and risky investment banks, can the government protect both depositors and the functionality of the nation’s financial system from looming financial shocks.

  • A Powerful British Faction has Aligned with LaRouche
    It is almost impossible to overstate the strategic significance of the fact that an important group within the top echelons of the British Establishment have come to the conclusion that Glass-Steagall is the only survival option open to them. The July 3 Financial Times editorial endorsement of Glass-Steagall has been followed, over the past 48 hours, by a series of further endorsements by leading figures ...

    On The Fourth of July, 2012, the voices of some of the most respected figures referenced by the British press in London, had shocked the politically sentient circles of the planet, with the publication of a report whose source has included the members of a circle of public figures from among the most highly respectable, relevant circles of Great Britain. Those voices had announced that some crucial elements of that famous empireís leading press had suddenly called for wiping out the nominally richest British banks in the world, in order to rescue both Britain and the United States from a terrible catastrophe. The relevant British proponents had proposed cooperation between the United States and Britain on this specific account.

    Background on Glass-Steagall

    Only Glass-Steagall Can Stop the Financial Rot
    When JP Morgan Chase owned up in early May, 2012, to a derivatives blowout of at least $3 billion, a chorus of voices around the world immediately demanded the return of Glass-Steagall, U.S. President Franklin Roosevelt's 1933 banking regulation. From its enactment in 1933 to its repeal in 1999, the Glass-Steagall Act (named in the U.S. style after its Congressional sponsors, Senator Carter Glass and Representative Henry Steagall) forbade any cross-ownership between Wall Street's investment banks, and the deposit-insured commercial banks which held the savings of the American people. The Glass-Steagall "firewall" quarantined the daily financial affairs of the real economy from crisises on Wall Street, and put a brake on the Wall Street investment banks, which knew they would not be bailed out.
    Following the 1999 repeal of Glass-Steagall, directed by U.S. Treasury Secretary Larry Summers, the Wall Street investment banks had a free-for-all, snapping up commercial banks to gain access to their huge deposit base. JP Morgan Chase is one such example: JP Morgan had been one of America's most powerful investment banks, while Chase Manhattan was one of the biggest commercial banks. The banks, bloated through such mergers, became "too big to fail", holding the American people hostage to the financial crimes of Wall Street: unless the banks were to be bailed out of their derivatives losses, their collapse would wipe out the savings of millions of depositors.
    The February 2011 findings of the official U.S. investigation, the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission (FCIC), the so-called Angelides report, blamed the post-2007 crisis on the 1999 repeal of Glass-Steagall and the 2000 deregulation of derivatives, declaring, "The greatest tragedy would be to accept the refrain that no one could have seen this coming and thus nothing could have been done. If we accept this notion, it will happen again."
    The LaRouche movement in the United States has been mobilising during the past five years for a return to Glass-Steagall. The Angelides report reflected growing momentum in that direction. In April 2011, Democratic Representative Marcy Kaptur introduced into the U.S. Congress a bill to reinstate Glass-Steagall; her bill, House Resolution 1489, has 62 co-sponsors. (President Obama's allies in Congress blocked two previous attempts, including one co-sponsored by former presidential candidate John McCain.) Glass-Steagall is front and centre of the political debate in debt-stricken Europe, where dozens of political figures, legislative resolutions, and media have called for application of a separation of banking functions.

    The Science of Glass-Steagall, January 26, 2010
    The matter of Glass-Steagall far exceeds any mere discussion of money, or even re-organizing the banking system. Glass-Steagall gets directly at the substance of mankind's ability to willfully exert his creative powers over the universe to increase his ability to exist. Indeed this is the basis for understanding economic value. Here we take the case of Iron Ore deposits and the oxygen crisis as a pedagogical case in point.
