ITM Trading’s Lynette Zang Talks about shift away from the US dollar to the SDR as the global unit of account began back in May 2017. This shift is being ushered in and supported by China as power also shifts from the West to the East. The tool being used is the ACC (Asset Collection Chain), which digitizes tangible asset ownership into a tradable SDR. I consider this the most important event to date. Here is a link to the slides and information contained in Lynette’s presentation:

Research for the Resistance: Map the Power Takes Off!

The cult of the expert – and how it collapsed

Led by a class of omnipotent central bankers, experts have gained extraordinary political power. Will a populist backlash shatter their technocratic dream?


Two decades ago, in his final and posthumous book, the American cultural critic Christopher Lasch went after contemporary experts. “Elites, who define the issues, have lost touch with the people,” he wrote. “There has always been a privileged class, even in America, but it has never been so dangerously isolated from its surroundings.” These criticisms presciently anticipated the rise of Davos Man – the rootless cosmopolitan elite, unburdened by any sense of obligation to a place of origin, its arrogance enhanced by the conviction that its privilege reflects brains and accomplishment, not luck and inheritance. To survive these inevitable resentments, elites will have to understand that they are not beyond politics – and they will have to demonstrate the skill to earn the public trust, and preserve it by deserving it. Given the alternative, we had better hope that they are up to it.
