‘The US Federal Reserve has laundered money through Belgium in a bid to cover up real figures about bond sales and save the dollar from further slide, an analyst writes in a column for the Press TV.
Paul Craig Roberts was referring to the purchase of USD 141.2 of Federal Reserve bonds by Belgium’s Central Bank from November 2013 through January 2014.
“…Where did the $141.2 billion come from?…. Certainly Belgium did not have a budget surplus of USD 141.2 billion,” he said.
The analyst argued that the sum must have come “from the US Federal Reserve” so that the purchase could be “laundered through Belgium in order to hide the fact that actual bond purchases during the November-January “were USD 112 billion per month.”’
