You’ve no doubt heard about various conspiracy theories — the JFK assassination conspiracy, the New World Order conspiracy, the “Clinton Body Count conspiracy,” and innumerous others dating back to biblical times.
Yet in terms of the sheer propensity to create pain and suffering, none can compare to the conspiracy now entrapping the globe.
Unlike most other conspiracies, it is ..
* Not a theory! It’s fact — fully documented and measured with proven stats.
* Not a secret! It’s openly admitted by the conspirators. They even publish the results regularly and brag about them almost daily.
* Global! It’s perpetuated by the most powerful three men on the planet today, all working in unison to steal from the people and destroy your wealth.
* A known menace to society. History shows that, in the end game, this conspiracy invariably leads to economic collapse, mass unemployment, chronic poverty, the unraveling of social institutions, even mass famine and revolution.
How do I know?
I witnessed it personally!
I grew up in a country that was the victim of a similar — but smaller — conspiracy.
Things got so bad, the food distribution and health care system virtually collapsed in many parts of the country.
In some of cities, I saw gangs of young children, sometimes with members as young as five years old, sleeping under bridges at night and roaming the streets by day in search of something to eat.
At the nation’s hospitals and clinics, I saw mothers and their sick babies waiting for hours for a chance to see a doctor, some dying in line from easily curable diseases.
And I was in high school when a group of generals mounted a coup, took over the government and subjected the country to a repressive military dictatorship that lasted for two decades.
They justified their “revolution” by saying they’d end the conspiracy and bring order to society.
But in reality, they only made things a lot worse:
Yes, before the military coup, most of the people had lost their wealth or any hope for a decent life. But after the coup, ALL of the people lost their liberty.
And the conspiracy continued.
The country I’m talking about is Brazil — and the social blight I described was especially apparent in the central and northern regions where I lived and traveled in the 1950s and ’60s.
The conspiracy: The deliberate policy of massive money printing by the central bank, the Bank of Brazil.
The immediate consequence: Hyperinflation.
The long-term impact: Destruction of wealth, erosion of social institutions, mass corruption in government, enrichment of the few, impoverishment of the many, and chaos.
Today, Brazil has learned this harsh lesson of history; out-of-control central bank money printing is now strictly taboo.
Of course the country still has serious social and economic issues. What large nation doesn’t? But it’s mostly stable and prosperous.
That’s something that continues to surprise me to this day, especially when I return to the some of the poorest regions I knew as a child.
But what is far MORE surprising to me is …
The sheer audacity of the world’s most powerful
central bankers who are now perpetuating a far
larger, GLOBAL money-printing conspiracy!
This particular global conspiracy started in September of 2008, when Lehman Brothers failed, the entire financial system was melting down, and the U.S. Federal Reserve Board reacting by running the money printing presses like never before in history.
The financial crisis subsided. But the money printing continued.
Worse, it spread to the European Union, when its weakest member countries went bankrupt and its largest banks came to the brink of collapse: The European Central Bank (ECB) broke its own rules and vows, unleashing its largest-ever money printing operations.
And now, just this week, the newly minted governor of the Bank of Japan (BOJ) has also launched its biggest money printing round in history, vowing not only to buy up huge amounts of government bonds, but also exchange-traded funds and even Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITS).
In an email he just sent to me, Safe Money editor Mike Larson puts it this way:
“The Bank of Japan is winning the central bank race to Crazy-Town! They just announced they’re going to more than double their monthly bond purchases to 7.5 trillion yen (about $79 billion), with the aim of doubling the monetary base in Japan over the next two years.
“Previously, they focused their purchases on short-term bonds. Now, they’re going to buy bonds of any kind, out to 40-year maturities.
“Previously, they rarely bought anything other than government securities. Now, they will also buy a lot more exchange-traded funds (a direct stock market manipulation) and REITS (a direct manipulation of the real estate market).
“Until 2008, every modern industrial nation in the world considered these policies strictly taboo — weapons of mass wealth destruction.
“They would never touch this kind of direct financing of government debt issuance, direct market manipulation, or massive balance sheet expansion — let alone at a pace that far exceeds the growth in the real economy.
“But now, especially with the latest news from Japan, all those taboos are out the window!”
Indeed, the world’s three most powerful central bankers are closely coordinating their conspiracy to RAPIDLY inflate the global supply of paper money:
Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke is the ring leader. He started it and effectively left the others no choice but to join in.
ECB President Mario Draghi was next.
And now, BOJ’s Haruhiko Kuroda has taken it to the next level.
Each of these co-conspirators thinks he can …
Lift his imperial hand to the sky …
Defy the proven laws of economics …
Fool millions of investors …
Manipulate the world’s largest financial markets, and …
Do all of this indefinitely, with impunity!

Call it the little engine that could … the S&P 500 Index (SPX) huffed … and it puffed.
And on the last trading day of March, the blue-chip index finally made it to a new record high last week, eclipsing the previous high-water mark of 1,565 set back in the pre-financial crisis days of 2007.

The last few weeks have challenged a key contention of the unbridled bulls — namely that the global economy is firing on all cylinders. Just consider:
