Swiss Banking secrecy
Catholic royalty flocked to Geneva in the 18th century in an effort to conceal their dealings with Protestant bankers and soon regulations were put into place to protect this lucrative business. Since 2017 however, this has slowly been dissolved, after many calls from foreign nations in order to repatriate hidden funds.

The Swiss National Bank

Empty words from a private company : In FIAT Money we Trust…
Basel or Bâle in French: Here we find the BIS, the Bank of International Settlements ; the Bank of Central and National Banks
“You as an employee of the tax office should know that the tax payments may be deposited only to the specified bank account. However, the transaction is not made directly to the account of the municipality, but the money or credit is transferred to the Bank for International Settlements (BIS) in Basel. This in turn forwards the credit to Washington DC, to a trust. There the account is settled with double-entry bookkeeping, so that at the end of the day the account is always back to zero. Subsequently, the credit is sent back to the BIS, and from there it finds its way to the municipality’s bank account. This payment flow has already been confirmed by the authorities in individual cases.”

In 1971 US President Nixon took the dollar off the gold standard, this meant that the banks did not have to hold a certain amount of gold to back the currency in circulation. Then the Petro-Dollar was created, and the world started living on FIAT money that could be printed to infinity..
Now we are going back to the gold standard, implemented in various stages: Basel I – IV
Basel I-IV, or the Basel Accords, is a set of international banking regulations drawn up by the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision (BCBS founded in 1974). They include, in particular, regulations on the capital ratio. When the financial world and the governments recognized that banks with too low a capital ratio posed a threat to financial security, the Basel regulations were put into place to prevent bank failures and the associated financial crises. This started from the 1980ies, long before the sub-prime scandals.
A typical Problem (1971) – Reaction (1974-now) – Solution (Basel 1-4) scenario.
The BCBS regulations do not carry legal force ; members are responsible for implementation in their respective home countries.
