What About The Rest Of The World?
As this was the first I have heard about the “International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS)” as reported in the City of York Council letter above, I took a quick peek to see what this was all about. As with most things – like the International Social Security Administration (ISSA) with over 130 countries under its administration, and the International Bar Association (IBA) with untold participation of all countries and legal systems including the United States, it appears that the IFRS is yet another glimpse into the globalization of the world financial and legal framework into one working “system” and standard of global practices.
A reporting of assets held today should not be effected by debt payments tomorrow, unless someone is attempting to purposefully hide today’s assets. Thus, this obfuscation and cover-up of actual government wealth in government financial reporting is uniform and perfectly legal throughout the world.
And for a generic description, Wikipedia states:
IFRS began as an attempt to harmonize accounting across the European Union but the value of harmonization quickly made the concept attractive around the world. They are sometimes still called by the original name of International Accounting Standards (IAS). IAS were issued between 1973 and 2001 by the Board of the International Accounting Standards Committee (IASC). On April 1, 2001, the new International Accounting Standards Board took over from the IASC the responsibility for setting International Accounting Standards. During its first meeting the new Board adopted existing IAS and Standing Interpretations Committee standards (SICs). The IASB has continued to develop standards calling the new standards International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS)…
IFRS are used in many parts of the world, including the European Union, India, Hong Kong, Australia, Malaysia, Pakistan, GCC countries, Russia, South Africa, Singapore, and Turkey. As of August 2008, more than 113 countries around the world, including all of Europe, currently require or permit IFRS reporting and 85 require IFRS reporting for all domestic, listed companies, according to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.
It is interesting to note here that the above mentioned “International Accounting Standards Committee (IASC)” was created and based in the City of London until 2001, and that the United States was a member through the private association called the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA), the United Kingdom and Ireland (counted as one) were members through the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW), Scotland through the Institute of Chartered Accountants of Scotland (ICAS), Ireland through the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Ireland (ICAI), and in whole the United Kingdom through the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA), Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA), and the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountability (CIPFA) – among other countries.
The fact that the United States was a member of this London-based organization dovetails on the very threat of a loss of United States borders and sovereignty that I have been warning about for many months, and other for years – through the utilization of private, non-governmental associations such as these drawing in most of the positions of trust and power within the United States; specifically via appointed (not elected) offices like Public Accountants, Financial Officers, City Managers, and through private NGO associations like the National Governor’s Association (NGA) and the National Mayors Association (NMA). These private non-governmental associations promote uniform legal codes and standards on a national and global basis.
And so the supposedly sovereign United States (or any country for that matter) can be out-voted by the consensus of this group. Does that sound like sovereignty to you???
These private associations and NGO’s have taken over the entire framework of government, and are ghostwriting the legislation and laws of this and other countries around the world – all through common standards and practices originating from a global board on a global committee.
Understanding this reality of the structure of our now completely infiltrated government is the first step to understanding the full scheme of investments and greed that have now shaped the world economy. And the lies and obfuscations allowed by international law to be implemented as an international standard of financial reporting is already upon us.
Welcome to the global machine…
