When I was a kid, a favorite expression was “If you can’t beat ’em, join ’em.” It sounds like the IMF agrees with that approach when it comes to cryptocurrencies.

It was not that long ago the IMF was cautioning about cryptocurrency frauds and warning investors to keep away. But in a new speech, the IMF managing director, Christine Lagarde, has joined the crypto revolution and endorses the use of cryptocurrencies by central banks and everyday citizens.

However, there’s a sinister twist to Lagarde’s embrace. While she endorses cryptos at the retail digital payment level, she reminds us in this speech that behind every retail transaction is a payments system controlled by central banks.

Far from replacing central bank fiat currency, Lagarde suggests that central banks turn their fiat currency into central bank digital currency (CBDC) and that the central banks offer a payments system that can handle private cryptos along with CBDC tokens. As Lagarde says, “When it comes time to transact, we take over.”

Hidden behind this talk of digital currency is the more hidden agenda of eliminating all forms of cash. This makes it easier for state power to monitor actors and squash efforts to avoid state control.

This speech shows the IMF is a wolf in sheep’s clothing pretending to embrace the new while pursuing the old goals of state control of everyday life.

The climate alarmists have grabbed most of the headlines for the past ten

WHY TRUMP WILL WIN REELECTION: NOT POLLS OR PUNDITS; JUST COMMON SENSE

Political analysts use polls, betting odds, historic trends and other inputs to make their (usually wrong) political predictions. We all remember that “experts” said Hillary Clinton would win the presidency in 2016 (they gave her a 92% chance on the morning of the election), and that the UK would vote to “remain” in the EU

KRUGMAN SHOWS HE KNOWS LITTLE ABOUT ECONOMICS AND LESS ABOUT FINANCE

We already knew that Nobel Prize winner Paul Krugman knows almost nothing about economics. Now, we see from this article that he knows nothing about banking either. Krugman claims that the repeal of Glass-Steagall and the actions of banks in general were not the cause of the 2008 financial crisis. The conventional wisdom is that Lehman Brothers,
