The other side of Alexander Hamilton

No Comments

first_imgDear Editor:In an article “Hamilton on the Hudson” (Weehawken, where Burr killed Hamilton) you quote Jim Furman, one of the visitors to the site: “Hamilton is the father of modern banking. He’s legend.” He is indeed, but many people, in his day and ours, consider him a traitor. He is currently all the talk because of the popular Broadway musical based on his life.The main reason for the American Revolution against England was to free the colonies from English debt-slavery, from having to use money created by England’s Central Bank, which was established in 1694. One of the founders of this (private) bank, William Paterson, said of it, “The bank hath benefit of interest on all monies which it creates out of nothing.”Hamilton wanted to bring such a usurious bank to America. He was opposed by John Adams, who called him a “vile intriguer”, and Jefferson, who said, “I believe that (a central bank) is more dangerous to our liberties than standing armies”, and they made sure that our Constitution mandates that Congress, not a privately-owned bank, issues American money debt-free. Debt-free.Aaron Burr, who was vice president under Jefferson, disliked Hamilton so much that he killed him in that famous duel. President Andrew Jackson also fought the establishment of a central bank, calling its members a “nest of vipers.” Nathan Rothschild, king of central bankers, declared, “Let me issue and control a nation’s money, and I care not who writes the laws.”Well, we now have an unconstitutional Central Bank, called the Federal Reserve, which, thanks to a corrupt, bribed Congress (some things never change), came into being in 1913, and we have standing armies in our own country and all over the world.That worldwide standing army, engaged in “perpetual war for perpetual peace,” is paid for by money created by the Fed “out of nothing,” which money is lent to our war-crazy bribed Congress. (Jefferson, who had such fond hopes for his new country, is turning in his grave!) This Federal Reserve (not “federal,” it’s private, and it has no “reserves”) is allowed to reap the benefit of the interest charged on that created-out-of-thin-air money – our “national debt,” which will keep our children’s children in debt to these bankers forever.Nice work if you can get it, as the song says.T.

Vermont Captive Insurance licenses exceed 40 for sixth year

No Comments

first_imgFor the 6th year Vermont surpassed the 40 new captives licensed mark with 41 new captive insurance companies in 2011 bringing the total number of licenses to 952, according to data released by the Vermont Banking, Insurance, Securities and Health Care Administration (BISHCA).Thirty were single parent captives, with six risk retention groups (RRG), three sponsored, one industrial insured, and one association. 2011’s new captive insurance licensees brings Vermont overall total to 952 with 590 active captive insurance companies.‘One of the most exciting aspects of 2011 and a perennial key to our success is the high quality of companies that we are privileged to work with,’ said David Provost, Vermont’s Deputy Commissioner of Captive Insurance.  ‘We’re also seeing the State’s continued investment in staff helping us continue to provide outstanding customer service.  That’s very much a part of what keeps Vermont the Gold Standard.’Despite the soft market each quarter of 201l had steady growth.  ‘This strong year is testimony to our continued commitment to maintain Vermont’s reputation as the Gold Standard of domiciles,’ said Governor Peter Shumlin.  ‘While other states continue to falter, Vermont’s stability and support has never wavered. We will continue to address the needs of the industry going forward and will not rest on our laurels.’The top industries licensing captives in the past year in Vermont were insurance, hospitals and medical groups and manufacturing.  Vermont was also busy with activity in risk retention groups which continue to be a growth sector.‘Vermont is the leader in RRG’s and that trend has been a constant. Another area of growth has been in redomestications of existing captives from other states and jurisdictions.  We continue to hear that Vermont provides the greatest value for your captive insurance company,’ said Daniel Towle, Director of Financial Services.  As 2012 begins, two new captives have been licensed and there are already four applications pending according to Towle.  ‘The overall market may be soft, but it is also very dynamic and we expect good things to come from 2012.’Captive insurance is a regulated form of self insurance that has been around since the 1960’s, and has been a part of the Vermont insurance industry since 1981, when Vermont passed the Special Insurer Act.  Captive insurance companies are formed by companies or groups of companies as a form of alternative insurance to better manage their own risk.  Captives are typically used for corporate lines of insurance such as property, general liability, products liability, or professional liability.   Growth sectors of the captive insurance industry include securitization, professional medical malpractice coverage for doctors and hospitals, and the continued trend of small and mid-sized companies forming captive insurance companies.Montpelier, VT ‘ January 10, 2012 ‘ www.vermontcaptive.com(link is external)last_img read more

Corporations, Regardless of Current Government Policy, Continue Shift to Renewables

No Comments

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享Wall Street Journal:More of the world’s biggest corporations are taking the fight against climate change into their own hands, aiming to cut their energy costs, pre-empt regulation or burnish their reputations with investors and customers.Apple Inc. has draped its new California campus with solar panels. Wal-Mart Stores Inc. cut the energy consumption of its refrigerators. Steelmaker Thyssenkrupp AG streamlined trucking routes, Dell Inc. made its servers less power-hungry and Microsoft Corp. pledged Tuesday to slash its carbon output.Among just over 1,000 of the world’s biggest publicly listed companies, accounting for about 12% of total greenhouse-gas emissions, 89% have plans to cut those emissions, according to a survey from the CDP, a nonprofit platform for corporate environmental disclosures. That is a 16 percentage-point increase since 2011, said the CDP, formerly known as the Carbon Disclosure Project. Earlier this month, a group led by former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg and California Gov. Jerry Brown presented a climate pledge under which 1,400 businesses have set emissions-reduction targets.Investors with $100 trillion in assets world-wide—including BlackRock Inc. and Goldman Sachs Group Inc. —say they refer to the CDP’s database when making investment decisions.This month HSBC Holdings PLC said it would invest $100 billion in low-carbon businesses before 2025, and cut financing for new coal-fired power plants in the developed world and thermal-coal mines world-wide.“You don’t want to be the last one that wants to get out of certain assets once you realize they are no longer viable,” said Daniel Klier, HSBC Holdings’ global head of strategy and sustainable finance.Companies say setting targets and working to cut emissions helps them get a head start on any coming government mandates.More ($): How Companies Are Pushing Ahead on Climate-Change Targets Corporations, Regardless of Current Government Policy, Continue Shift to Renewableslast_img read more
