Blessing in Disguise: Never-to-be-Funded Pension Liabilities

Pension liabilities are one financial prisoner to hyperinflationary breakdown whose bane today could be turned into tomorrow's boon. Appearing at grave risk and only viable for the moment on account of many a good kick of the can down the road, in truth pensions still are far more alive than a mountain of MBS the lilliputian Fed cannot possibly swallow. Far more alive, that is, if pensioners only grow a pair and effectively demand the likes of Hank Greenberg be neutered, this via Glass-Steagall and national banking employing a Hamiltonian credit system.

In Glass-Steagall restructuring dead ahead accounting games allowing companies to pillage their pension plans no doubt will come to an end — this as residual fallout from the banking system's impending restructuring. Likewise resulting, though, could be a wider and deeper financial commitment to the success of a Third National Bank of the United States, this being accomplished simply by legally binding companies to their pension obligation liabilities while supporting their capacity to honor these over the immediate, transitional period (lasting some years) as the nation moves from an imperial monetarist system to a Hamiltonian credit system, venturing to promote an arrangement wherein confidence is likely to be recovered in a climate finding every debt far more certain to be extinguished than is true today. Arrangements could be worked out through the Bank whose effect both assures company pension liabilities, indeed, will be honored to some useful degree (this via loans from the Bank), while targeting future earnings companies would commit in exchange, whose aim would be to grow the Bank's capital stock and provide means for the Bank to invest in a manner sure to increase commerce across the nation and the world: an end ultimately conducive to business itself.

Without going into greater detail on this specific case of transforming an emperor with no clothes — today's underfunded pension liabilities — into a viable commitment whose effect not only "buys time" for impacted companies, but more importantly paves the way for righting a listing ship upon which are millions of passengers who directly stand to be condemned with no hope of rescue if left to sink, some illumination of how today's "tulip trade" can be managed following reinstatement of Glass-Steagall rather is intended. Most emphatically on this note, though, is the utter necessity of national banking furthered on account of an intention requiring finance serve mankind. Through what presently are today's never-to-be-funded pension liabilities ("underfunded" is fantasy land language), a means for deepening economic vested interest effectively functioning at the pleasure of the national bank can be established — this because such an arrangement, foremost, would prove a most profitable relationship for any viable business to engage, and most beneficial to the nation, as well (a reread of the U.S. Constitution's Preamble possibly is in order here, just to be sure).

Fast approaching are shrieks of those "poor pensioners" who stand to be ruined if Glass-Steagall returns. Rest assured, these are mindless scare tactics. Truth is, and we have been all over this for a while now, no measure of bailout or other stalling tactic for dealing with the banking system's insolvency will change one whit the status of today's never-t0-be-funded pension liabilities. To be sure today's trapped titans of tyranny have but two choices forward: hyperinflation with all its Wiemar trappings, or massive debt write down. There is no middle ground in today's hopelessly distorted imperial, monetarist financial system. Both choices forward portend the same end for pensioners: a pension plan never to be funded, at least not to any degree remotely securing today's purchasing power into the future.

Tonight's closing segment to CNBC's "Fast Money" above by no means presents new news. Yet because today's state of hopelessly trapped pensioners opens an opportunity for promoting national banking in the form of a Hamiltonian credit system, incorporating along lines outlined above a means for both saving face with pensioners and deepening the reach of economic enterprises gladly operating at the pleasure of the national bank, we have a rebuttal ready for Team Fraud when the hour of their shrieking arrives. Beyond the most immediate need to establish solvent commercial banks, that commerce affecting our daily lives can proceed while the greater, trans-Atlantic financial system's reorganization commences — the Glass-Steagall moment — the means for promoting not only just mere recovery, but, indeed, a renaissance of economic abundance facilitated through a national bank employing a Hamiltonian credit system finds today's never-to-be-funded pension liabilities a blessing in disguise making the case for an arrangement otherwise easily argued to be the most mutually beneficial.
