IMF Chief says Central Bank Digital Currency should be used alongside Social Credit System to control what people can and cannot buy

The Expose

The deputy managing director of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) recently explained how Central Bank Digital Currencies (CBDC) can be programmed to determine what people are allowed to buy and insisted they should be used alongside a China-style Social Credit Score system.

Unlike cryptocurrency, which is private, Central Bank Digital Currency (CBDC) will be issued and controlled by the central banks themselves.

In many ways, it’s the same as banknotes, but that every single transaction will be monitored for compliance.

On Friday 14th October, the IMF streamed a meeting called “Central Bank Digital Currencies for Financial Inclusion: Risks and Rewards.”

Speakers were Her Majesty Queen Máxima of the Netherlands, who’s also the UN Secretary-General’s Special Advocate for Inclusive Finance for Development. Kristalina Georgieva, Managing Director, IMF, and Bo Li, Deputy Managing Director, and finally Cecilia Skingsley the BIS Innovation Hub Director.

The meeting was about global financial inclusion, which they said had improved over the past ten years, but almost a quarter of the world’s adult population are still unbanked.

It’s hoped that central bank digital currencies would be affordable, widely accepted, and safe instruments, which would address some of the issues surrounding financial inclusion, among other things.

The live stream went under the radar for many but our buddy Tim Hinchliffe over at The Sociable kept an eye on what was going on. Tim posted a video of Bi Li, the Deputy Managing Director of the IMF, explaining how CDBSs can be programmed.

He said: “The smart contract would allow targeted policy functions, like welfare payments, consumption coupons, food stamps, etc.”

“With CBDCs, we can precisely control what people can and can’t own. Also, what kind of use this money can be programmed for, like food only.” – Bi Li

The key word he used was programmability.

Bo li went on to say that because of this potential programmability, government agencies could precisely target support packages to the right people.

He went on to say that: “CBDCs can’t solve every financial inclusion challenge, but they can work together with financial literacy and digital literacy.”

So, a CBDC would work with other policies like digital identities and digital wallets.

This goes hand in glove with what the World Bank Group described in November 2021. Digital identity verification is essential to the operation of CBDCs, particularly in cross-border transactions. “

Tradable digital assets must be tied to a digital identity system, which in turn should be tied to an automatic KYC and AML/CFT verification system.

“This is a foundational step to the potential use of CBDCs, and emerging developments in regulatory and compliance technology may benefit central banks’ experiments in the digital currency space.”

Bo li described a CDBC as an eco-system, and that the data it would produce would be very valuable to third parties.

When questioned on how this transactional data could be used, Bo Li explained: “I can give you one example in China, those transaction data can be utilised by service providers in credit underwriting.”

Underwriting is the process by which the lender decides whether an applicant is creditworthy and should receive a loan.

“Those transaction data in terms of how many coffees I drink every day, where I buy coffee, do I use UBER every day and what kind of working hours I have.”

“Those non-traditional data can be very useful for financial service providers to give me a credit score and based on that credit score the service providers can give me a credit line without any face-to-face due diligence.”

He continues to say that this “will create value in addition to finance and that data can be very profitable, and that’s the value we are talking about to make it attractive to private sector players to join this eco system.”

It’s like the Chinese model, but every country has the option to do it differently. There is limited privacy. The IMF, World Bank, and BIS are also managing many central banks on these new products.

On the issue of data privacy, Cecilia Skingsley the BIS Innovation Hub Director explained:

“What we just heard from Bo about credit scoring was a very good example of how different countries will take different journeys to a ‘new world’ where they serve their societies in the digital space.”

“We will all have different preferences and this preference on privacy or anonymity is tricky”.

And she continued to say, “That its worth to give up a little bit of privacy to get security”.

We’ve heard that before, right?

    I actually see the bigger keyword here as “control”. These bastards think they can control us.

    Go F$&K yourselves!!!!

    I still don’t understand why people just can’t enjoy their lives with what they have. I just don’t understand why some people like these psychopaths feel happiness in controlling people. That’s Zionists for ya, I guess.

    Imagine what this world would become if we all were allowed to use our innovative powers to better ourselves and this world instead of fighting pointlessly amongst ourselves for the wishes of a select few. I just feel like I’ve lost almost the last 30 years of my life with no innovation or happiness and that I’ve been just living a dull existence in a dystopian world.

    These vampires really have sucked the fun outta life. I need to get a stake and hammer and start getting rid of these bloodsucking creatures.

    1. I’m thinkin’ about those bombing drones being used in the current big war. Heard it said that’s a practice of how drones will be used on the entire population that’s not going along with the communistic agenda. Their selling us the idea that drones will be helpful to mankind. Surrrre. Those drones won’t be delivering Meals On Wheels, or better put, Fare From The Air, they’ll be delivering MEGA-CONTROL, with a heaping side of DEATH. While Zelensky grows as rich as Putin and Putin calls for curfews and martial law. Drones play such an important role in freedom-squashing.

      Yeah, “vampires” is the perfect word, NC, ’cause they’re draining life-blood everywhere. I certainly relate to what you wrote, in terms of how they’ve killed fun, joy, and natural innovation. So many closed doors for us. So many dead ends. But the fight is here, and with the victory of The Bill of Rights we will bust down those doors and again live our intended evolution. As they say, TO THE STARS.
