30 years ago, Jacob Rothschild predicted a global currency by 2018

Rate this post

On March 6, 1991, in a speech to Congress then-President George H. W Bush famously and very prematurely declared the beginning of a “new world order” following the Gulf War — the U.S.-led expulsion of Iraqi forces from Kuwait:

“Now, we can see a new world coming into view. A world in which there is the very real prospect of a new world order…. A world where the United Nations, freed from cold war stalemate, is poised to fulfill the historic vision of its founders. A world in which freedom and respect for human rights find a home among all nations.”

Three years before in 1988, in an essay in The Economist (which is partly owned by the Rothschild family), Lord Jacob Rothschild, now 82, predicted that in 2018 the world would be united under a single currency, the phoenix.
Under the global monetary union, called the “phoenix zone,” administered by a global central bank, national economic boundaries would dissolve. “Tight constraints” would be imposed on national governments, and there would be no national monetary policy. In effect, nation-states would lose their economic sovereignty, supplanted by a global government — a new world order — in fact if not in name.

Thanks to The Free Thought Project, below is an excerpt from Jacob Rothschild’s article, “Ready for the Phoenix,” The Economist, January 9, 1988, pp. 9-10.

Ready for the Phoenix
Thirty years from now, Americans, Japanese, Europeans, and people in many other rich countries, and some relatively poor ones will probably be paying for their shopping with the same currency. Prices will be quoted not in dollars, yen or D-marks but in, let’s say, the phoenix. The phoenix will be favoured by companies and shoppers because it will be more convenient than today’s national currencies, which by then will seem a quaint cause of much disruption to economic life in the last twentieth century.
At the beginning of 1988 this appears an outlandish prediction. Proposals for eventual monetary union proliferated five and ten years ago, but they hardly envisaged the setbacks of 1987. The governments of the big economies tried to move an inch or two towards a more managed system of exchange rates – a logical preliminary, it might seem, to radical monetary reform. For lack of co-operation in their underlying economic policies they bungled it horribly, and provoked the rise in interest rates that brought on the stock market crash of October. These events have chastened exchange-rate reformers. The market crash taught them that the pretence of policy co-operation can be worse than nothing, and that until real co-operation is feasible (i.e., until governments surrender some economic sovereignty) further attempts to peg currencies will flounder.
The New World Economy
The biggest change in the world economy since the early 1970’s is that flows of money have replaced trade in goods as the force that drives exchange rates. as a result of the relentless integration of the world’s financial markets, differences in national economic policies can disturb interest rates (or expectations of future interest rates) only slightly, yet still call forth huge transfers of financial assets from one country to another. These transfers swamp the flow of trade revenues in their effect on the demand and supply for different currencies, and hence in their effect on exchange rates. As telecommunications technology continues to advance, these transactions will be cheaper and faster still. With unco-ordinated economic policies, currencies can get only more volatile.…
In all these ways national economic boundaries are slowly dissolving. As the trend continues, the appeal of a currency union across at least the main industrial countries will seem irresistible to everybody except foreign-exchange traders and governments.In the phoenix zone, economic adjustment to shifts in relative prices would happen smoothly and automatically, rather as it does today between different regions within large economies (a brief on pages 74-75 explains how.) The absence of all currency risk would spur trade, investment and employment.
The phoenix zone would impose tight constraints on national governments. There would be no such thing, for instance, as a national monetary policy. The world phoenix supply would be fixed by a new central bank, descended perhaps from the IMF. The world inflation rate – and hence, within narrow margins, each national inflation rate- would be in its charge. Each country could use taxes and public spending to offset temporary falls in demand, but it would have to borrow rather than print money to finance its budget deficit. With no recourse to the inflation tax, governments and their creditors would be forced to judge their borrowing and lending plans more carefully than they do today. This means a big loss of economic sovereignty, but the trends that make the phoenix so appealing are taking that sovereignty away in any case. Even in a world of more-or-less floating exchange rates, individual governments have seen their policy independence checked by an unfriendly outside world.
As the next century approaches, the natural forces that are pushing the world towards economic integration will offer governments a broad choice. They can go with the flow, or they can build barricades. Preparing the way for the phoenix will mean fewer pretended agreements on policy and more real ones. It will mean allowing and then actively promoting the private-sector use of an international money alongside existing national monies. That would let people vote with their wallets for the eventual move to full currency union. The phoenix would probably start as a cocktail of national currencies, just as the Special Drawing Right is today. In time, though, its value against national currencies would cease to matter, because people would choose it for its convenience and the stability of its purchasing power.…
The alternative – to preserve policymaking autonomy- would involve a new proliferation of truly draconian controls on trade and capital flows. This course offers governments a splendid time. They could manage exchange-rate movements, deploy monetary and fiscal policy without inhibition, and tackle the resulting bursts of inflation with prices and incomes polices. It is a growth-crippling prospect. Pencil in the phoenix for around 2018, and welcome it when it comes.

Writing for The Free Thought Project, Jay Syrmopoulos points out:

[I]t must be noted that the creation of a global currency would give an inordinate amount of geopolitical capital to unelected international bankers, and subsequently take power away from the citizens of each nation and their respective governmental representatives….
Control over a nation’s money supply is, for all intents and purposes, the lifeblood of a state’s sovereignty – without this independence, the state only exists in name but is subservient to supranational powers whose interests lie outside of domestic and national political/economic concerns.
“Give me control of a nation’s money supply, and I care not who makes its laws,” said Mayer Amschel Rothschild, founder of the Rothschild banking dynasty.
Although the Rothschild family now generally keep a very low public profile, they still have significant business operations across a wide spectrum of sectors. While you may not find any one particular Rothschild on the Forbes’ most rich list, the family is estimated to control $1 trillion dollars in assets across the globe, thus having a strong voice across the geopolitical spectrum that many perceive as a hidden hand manipulating events silently from behind a veil of secrecy and silence.

Of course, since it is 2018, we now know that Jacob Rothschild’s prediction of 30 years ago did not come true, thanks to the Revolt of the Deplorables who, in 2016, elected a man named Donald Trump to the U.S. presidency, whose campaign promise is to “make America great again” by putting America’s national interests first, which got him eternal enmity from the globalists.
Trump did exactly that in the just-concluded G-7 Summit in Toronto, Canada, in which he fought for fairer trade agreements for the United States, instead of continue the massive trade imbalances and deficits of previous U.S. presidents — to howls from our supposed French, German and Canadian “allies”.

See “Trump won’t endorse G7 statement,” New York Post, June 9, 2018.

God bless President Trump, the wrench in the Rothschilds’ and other globalists’ machinations for a one-world government!

  1. Where the heck do these scum find the nerve to call them selves ‘lords’?

    • From the British government.

      • We gotta stop ´em! Free Tommy!

        • How they rule ya – Original Version:

          • I cannot get on this bandwagon. Tommy Robinson has used 3 other names in the course of his ‘fighting the establishment’ and he never seems to fight the true owners — he fights against immigration. Fine. But WHO runs the immigration — WHO rules from on high as a SUPRA government and UNELECTED body? WHO owns and runs the money system? I don’t think it’s the people getting onto boats, ships, and dinghies in the Mediterranean. And WHY are those people getting into the water? Do normal people, under normal circumstances (such as normalcy may be nowadays) leave ALL they’ve known, their lives, their cultures, their language, their families, their neighbors, unless they’re either HEAVILY enticed, or FORCED out of their lands by circumstances NOT of their own making? Tommy Robinson isn’t real, just as most “liberators” and “saviors” aren’t real. They’re theater, propaganda, pablum to keep the remainder of us quiet, and waiting for the miracle.

            • Yeah, I think you’re right about this. I don’t know much about him but “Immigration” is, as you say, just the observable consequence of other’s decisions. They are the “weapon” used in the invasion.
              They all seem to arrive with the latest cell phones, etc.. Without getting into this too deeply, what on earth would provoke any leader of any country to encourage this? They are all traitors and tools.
              Those who enable them are as bad. This is like looking at a Viking invasion and concluding that “boats” are the problem.

    • Well, they’re “made” men, by Mystery Babylon. Sir this, and Sir that, and Lord high and mighty. Wasn’t Jimmy Savile “Sir” Jimmy?

      • He was indeed. Sir Jimmy. Pedophile and necrophiliac. He had a lot of friends in “high” places too. Some are dead, and some are still around.

  2. Sad thing is that Trump can only be re-elected for another term, if his enemies/opposition do not raise a few million dead, convicts and illegals to vote him out of office; and there’s no one else with his balls and his attitude to follow him and continue his work. Even if the next POTUS is a Republican, it doesn’t matter, there’s no difference between republicans and democrats; they all want bigger government, more power for themselves, less to we the people, and more submission to the UN, and the PTB. Mostly, with rare exceptions, all politicians are rats, parasites, looking for the same cushy seats, and screw the people. The future is not bright. I see disaster and bloodshed in the horizon. God forbid – the visions are scary.

  3. I am a little confounded here. I have been commenting on this site for some time now. I seem to have made a mistake by attempting to log in to upvote other’s comments since so many were so generous with me. Every time I attempted before, all I got was a box wanting to me to log in to ‘wordpress. I finally attempted to do so, thinking I was merely registering to up vote comments. When I did enter my pass word as it requested, it refused to accept it. I do know my pass word as it is the only one I use.
    It seems all ‘wordpress wanted was for me to create a site which I had no desire to do, as I said, I thought it was just a step to be able to upvote comments.I am now stuck in ‘wordpress’ limbo and don’t know how the heck to get out, and it don’t seem to want to let me out of this dead zone.
    I do think I managed to get an e-mail to ‘wordpress several days ago, but they seem to be ignoring it.

    • I don’t know what to suggest, Kevin. Your two comments today both had to be approved by me, because WordPress seems to think you’re a brand-new commenter.
      Maybe you can clear your cookies and browsing history, then get back onto FOTM as your old self?

    • Maybe they have a new operation scheduled and the patsy’s name is “Kevin”. You could be famous.

  4. I would hope that at the time a allotted where a new POTUS is needed, that the Lord will have raised up someone to fill that spot. If there are those families that are currently raising children to be God fearing, righteous, obedient followers of Christ, I would hope that some of these individuals will step up and run or office.
    It is rather creepy that the Rothschild family has had a strangle hold on so many of the World’s countries for a very long time.
    I for one am convinced that it was through the prayers of the righteous that Trump (warts and all) was brought up to the forefront to fill the position of POTUS. If that could happen once, I think it could happen again.

    • Auntie Lulu, I remember being floored when I spoke to a woman thru Disqus comment lines to find out that I wasn’t the only “crazy” person who had been on my knees praying for Trump to run long before he finally announced! I got a LOT of upvotes on that comment!! I pray, as you do, that IF “they” manage to destroy our wonderful (warts and all, as you so accurately put it 😉) President, that God raises up a new warrior for His faithful people, to protect them. He is good and faithful to all those who love Him! (God, that is! LOL) Hugs dear, take care! ❤

  5. Mark S. McGrew

    It is nice to see that quite a bit of the many creeps of the so called NWO predictions have not come true. Poor little perverts……….they’ve been trying for 90 years now and they are still losers.

  6. Right. an economy controlled by a central govt. with no black market. no barter. no underground? Glad I won’t be here to see it. God have mercy on everybody left.

    • You hope you won’t be here to see it. Have you heard of “crypto”? Methinks this may be the new world currency. Eveybody is eagerly jumping on the crypto bandwagon, thinking it is outside the control of the power elite Jews. Not me!! People might be in for some real surprises… This looks like the mark of the beast in Revelation 13 to me.

      • Re: Crypto Currency: I agree & have no involvement with it.
        Crypto News:
        –Much earlier today I read at one site that Dennis Rodman wore a crypto “PotCoin” teeshirt to Singapore; & he was also interviewed on CNN (teary-eyed with joy over the Trump-Kim meet-up, though Rodman was not part of that).
        –Then later I saw this tweet from early yesterday that the South Korean crypto exchange had a “major heist” which caused bitcoin to go tumbling:

  7. And can there still be people out there who really believe that Trump was “elected by the people”?? And I find him very childish, the way he calls names and publicly insults his GOOD NEIGHBOURS (to the North), though some seem to think Canada is not a good neighbour…

    • You probably still believe in the whole Russian-Trump conspiracy thing too, despite Mueller and anyone not finding even a shred of evidence.

      • NO, I do NOT, and have never, believed the RussiaTrump conspiracies. Neither do I believe Trump got elected by popular vote. Dont you know the crypto jews control the outcome of every so called election? If you still believe in voter elections, you need to start doing some serious research.

    • It’s not Canadians that President Trump insults, it’s the Canadian government. He insults the crooks in the American government too, thank goodness; they need to be insulted! We understand, though – we were cursed with Obama. Vote Justin Trudeau out and get a real man in office.😎

      • Trump is just another puppet being used by the puppet masters to accomplish their evil end goals. But Bible prophecy has already told us what to expect, so people need to stop worshipping Trump, and start worshipping God.

    • Don’t worry Canadian Wildflower; we know you’re in deep shyte just like the rest of us. Insults, real or perceived, are the least of our problems. Trump knows EXACTLY which chords to strike to get the right harmonic.

  8. There’s been one global currency since 1946. It’s called the “Dollar”.

  9. Leave it to a Rothschild (only 82!) to use the phoenix, just “off the top of his head,” as a label for a global currency. The phoenix bird is an occult symbol of the NWO.
    –Supposedly the Founding Fathers were originally going to use the phoenix bird as the national symbol but changed it to the American Bald Eagle.
    –In 1998 Hillary wore a phoenix bird pin, as did Jean Kirkpatrick, & so did McCain’s wife in 2001.
    –During GW’s reign, Laura Bush sent Christmas cards to Republican women with a phoenix bird photo as the inside of the card.
    –At this old CuttingEdge link are also several referenced quotes from “occultist historian” Manly P. Hall & a few others re the occult meaning of the phoenix bird:
    –Its body was PURPLE with RED & BLUE tail feathers. Interesting. Is that why the Clintons appeared dressed in purple right after Trump’s election?
    –And how coincidental that USA’s political parties are referred to as blue & red; &/or “get red pilled” or “blue pilled,” etc.
    Lastly, during the “North American Union scare” during GW’s reign, the currency for that “continental economic govt.” (USA-CA-MX) was to be the “Amero.” Thankfully, that has not occurred … yet. I like my Andrew Jackson’$ just the way they are.

  10. To my mind, this is a “Meet the Fokkers” moment.
    ((They)) have given us a false choice, yet again; a world currency or national currencies.
    I may misunderstand financial sorcery, but once any ‘nation’ is in hoc to the central bankers, to fund anything (whether it’s wars–their preferred method to make money, since it kills off a lot of useless eaters, or any other project), aren’t you fokked, either way? And once you have central banking in your ‘nation’ aren’t you also fokked? And didn’t that happen to the United States after Andrew Jackson? (p.s. that’s why, to this day, the Fokkers have an erect-sion for Jackson and want him off the $20 bill, yes?)

    • Yep. No argument here.

    • AJ’s (Andrew Jackson, not Alex Jones, lol) war against the Central Bankster Wannabes kept them at bay for another 68 years after his death in 1845 (he was Potus 1829-1837). Unfortunately, they finally got their foot in the door in 1913 via Potus Woodrow Wilson & the establishment of the private “Federal” Reserve.
      I don’t think they’ve admitted it but I agree they want AJ’s name/face gone from the $20 under the guise of a double-PC-hit-job > a black & female replacement. But why pick on AJ & the $20 vs. all the other paper bills? It would seem obvious they have a grudge against Jackson.
      After the election, when Trump chose Andrew Jackson’s official portrait to hang on the wall next to his Oval Office presidential desk, we hoped that was Trump’s way of trolling the Banksters, which would be a hoot! But who knows whether Trump even knows the story of AJ-vs-Central-Banksters.

  11. The world will eventually progress to globalization and one currency.

  12. RMB is more likely to be the new world currency. Mr. Rothschild must be very disappointed. It is not printed by a central bank owned by him.
