Transcript:

Thank you, Madam Chairman,

Commissioner [Barnier], I am not without some sympathy – as a matter of fact – with the Council on this, because you are trying to do the impossible, and I think the parliament is trying to make you do the impossible.

The long-and-short of it is, as well known in Austrian Economics, in order to regulate financial services you would need perfect knowledge of the market – impossible, it cant be done. It’s sometimes known as the ‘fatal conceipt’.

What we need to go back to is ‘liberty of contract’, so the individual, the investor can contract, under law in a property-owning democracy, with whomsoever banker or investment manager he wants without interference of the state and the implicit guarantee of the taxpayer that goes with it.

Central bankers and retail bankers hide behind regulation. They are not dominated or guided by regulation! It’s what keeps these people out of prison when they cheat the general public, and ytou are part of the conspiracy.

Move away from prescriptive regulation, for goodness sake, and let the law of the land take its course.

Preparing for Euro Breakup – conference with MEPs Farage, Bloom and Professors W. Hankel, P. Bagus



NOTE: To ensure audio clarity the parliament’s audio recording was superimposed and the original film audio was muted. But since this was fractionally slower than the film(s) it had to be re-adjusted every few minutes, hence you may note that at times audio-lip sync is out. Also, excuse the camera works. The parliament’s conference staff would not film it as we were told they cover only conferences, not ‘public hearings’… go figure…

• Conference held in the European Parliament, Brussels, on Wednesday, 12th October 2012, Room A1E2, from 10.30 a.m. to 12.30 p.m.

Two German professors join UKIP Leader Nigel Farage MEP and UKIP MEP Godfrey Bloom for a conference in the European Parliament in Brussels, 12 October 2011.

The conference was introduced by UKIP Leader Nigel Farage MEP, co-president of the Europe of Freedom and Democracy group (EFD), which sponsored the event, chaired by Godfrey Bloom MEP (UKIP).

Professor Wilhelm Hankel, who last year led the challenge to the euro bailouts in the German Constitutional Court, tackled the first topic: “Currency Union or Foreign Exchange Rate Union?” He was followed by Professor Philipp Bagus, who dealt with the “Practical steps to withdrawing from the Euro.” (See bios below.)

From 1959 to 1967 he was chief economist of the Kreditanstalt für Wiederaufbau (Bank for Reconstruction) – 1967 he became the head of the department of money and credit in the Ministry for Economic Affairs and one of the closest staff members to the German economy minister Karl Schiller.

In 1998 – together with three colleagues – he made a complaint against the rushed introduction of the Euro at the German Federal Constitutional Court.
