In response to an FT article by Merryn Somerset Webb on 15th January 2016, entitled 'Calm heads are needed as markets continue to yoyo'.

Thanks Merryn

“This week I chaired a conversation with Adair Turner, former chairman of the UK’s Financial Services Authority. His solution to the problem? Monetise the debt. Make it go away by printing the money to pay it off. Job done. Lord Turner isn’t considered to be a crank”

I'm glad you added the word 'considered' to that sentence. Lord Turner works for George Soros, who when he isn't choosing a new colour for his latest revolution or trying to impress us all with his 'compassionate globalism', is attempting to meddle in the monetary system. We need a new monetary system, and we will have one whether governments want one or not - because this one is the early stages of meltdown....but please...not one designed by an elitist like George Soros, or his latest shill Lord Turner.
