IMF Bank Lords & George Soros’ INET at Bretton Woods, What’s the Diff?
By: Arlen Williams
But before trying to analyze whatever we may discover of what occurred there, it is critical to discern how it fits an overall picture. For context, one must also see what the IMF and World Bank “communitarian” elitists are up to.
We find that before the Bretton Woods affair, focusing upon “new solutions,” there was a similar IMF meeting, called “New Ideas for a New World.” It was centered upon “Post-Crisis Policy Making” and occurred March 7-14. That gave some of them a lot of time to communicate and plan in quiet (the traditional word for that is conspire) when they were not attending official sessions, or making videos.
Then, we see that Soros’ April 8-11 conference ended just as the IMF and World Bank took up their April 11-17 Spring Meetings, just a limo ride away. “Blossom of Spring, won’t you bloom and grow?” Let us see what is budding in this intensive series of conferences, by the first one’s own promotional vid.
Here is a collection of pitches for “New Ideas for a New World.” Hey, they left out the last word, “Order.” Could it be that some of them know their version of order requires fomenting massive disorder first, the crises not to be wasted? They also left out the word “Brave,” before “New World.” Maybe that is because some of them like Huxley, have qualms.
This video puts their dexterous foot forward about that March 2011 conference, while their sinister footfalls go on. So who are these dudes, getting together and yukking it up (well, three out of four globalist manipulators seem to approve) and just how spooky are they? What are the messages of the Big Money priests, to the unwashed, PITI-ful masses of principal, interest, taxes, and insurance payers?
…as the IMF site appeared Sunday, April 3rd, 2011, (probably April 1st, too)…
Front and center, left to right:
- Joseph Stiglitz, Professor at Columbia University and infamous as one of George Soros’ most closely allied corrupto-economists. In the video, he says he’s excited about our monetary crisis. So glad he enjoys his work.
- Interactive media time — if you recognize the second hilarious taker, feel free to comment, below.
- Otmar Issing, President of the Center for Financial Studies is the man of unhilarious countenance. Party poopingly, he does not like banking instability, calls for higher quality regulation, and has the audacity to propose that some banks reign in their excess liquidity. What a bring down.
- Dominque Strauss-Kahn is the IMF chairman. Were he to speak on a promo video, perhaps it would detract from the mystique of power.
Further bits from the video:
- At the outset, Michael Spence, Professor at Stanford University, downplays concerns about inflation. No big deal. He imagines we’ll kind of muddle through, though we may have crises “in Europe or America or both.” He also closes the show by warning that the unemployment crisis will remain. Why stress that? Doesn’t even a velvety soft revolution requires the discontent?
- Robet Solow, Professor Emeritus of Massachusetts Institute of Technology, wants the monetary crisis to bleed into fiscal policy (something for which central banks are so centrally known, profiteering from economy destroying debt and taxation bubbles they “nudge” along to foment, from the 17oo’s onward). Wide-eyed, though, he gives us the news that debt build-up “will have to be settled in the longer run.”
- Graciela Kaminsky, Professor at George Washington University, placates us that the fiscal policy of the 2008 meltdown worked — don’t worry about such things as expanding the debt bubbles, worldwide.
- Jo-Marie Griesgraber, Executive Director of New Rules for Global Finance (wonder who donates to that?) admonishes financial services firms against being interested in… business profit. The opposite pole for her is to be “interested in human beings.” Yeah. Thus, one may suppose human beings are naturally meant to be unprofitable, according to Ms. Griesgraber. She regurgitates an absurd (read: unnatural, evil) Hegelian antithesis of Marxism: that job creation is a matter to be separated from profit or profit seeking. She also puts in a word “for the impact on the environment — or anything else.”
- Vittorio Corbo, Former Central Bank Governor of Chile, calls for an artificial concoction of “incentives” to make banks “prudent,” centrally and globally, one may suspect. He also provides diversity.
- Suman Bery, Director General of the National Council of Applied Economic Research, seems to wonder whether “the behemoths of the global financial system” may be “supervised” due to their political as well as financial power. In these words, we see the antipathy of global financiers to banking and economics being governed by free nations. The goal may also be inferred, of making central banking a bigger yet behemoth, ungoverned by nations, but instead governing all of them. He assures us though, that “…nobody quite knows what the fixes are.” Whew, and here we thought people seeking Uber-Behemoth Power were confident of their schemes.
- And see Damon Silvers, everyone. He is with the American Federation of Labor (AFL-CIO). Funny that he should be there, pulling for the same things as the rest. Aren’t union activists the ones who fight against capitalists? — who barge into banks and disrupt them? Mr. Silvers (no puns offered about his name) teaches fellow attendees and onlookers that “balanced growth, worldwide,” must involve “constraining the appetites and the political power of the rich.” If such power is not globally overlorded, “we are absolutely certain: a. not to have balanced growth and, b. to continue high unemployment as we’ve had it and, c. to repeat our cycles of financial bubbles and busts,” so help him, Saul Alinsky, Richard Cloward, Frances Fox Piven, Andy Stern, and Richard Trumka.
What are the takeaways?
Global, uber-governance by central bankers, squeezing, leeching, and shrinking free enterprise, while using excuses such as egalitarianism and of course, “the impact on the environment — or anything else,” and while establishing a world full of deprivation and discontent, to set against successful employers and their free nations, all for the aforementioned global governance.
Pardon the redunancy, but it does begin and end with the same goal of global governance, a worldwide empire of authoritarianism and enslavement. Funny how America is always having to deal with such things.
And sometimes, what the power-elites do not say is what is most important to pick up. Never once is the word “insolvency” used, though it is the most critical problem brought on by all the back-and-forth buying and selling of debt, one centrally banked and planned layer piled upon another. You can watch more of their programming at the IMF site and see if they ever use the word.
So, just how snugly does Soros’ conference fit in this IMF sandwich and what are the tactical solutions they all so collectively seek? One set of hints has been provided by Soros’ right hand man, Jeffrey Sachs. As reported by Aaron Klein, Jeff is seeking a brave, immediate future including global taxation, currency transfer tax, tax on the rental value of land and natural resources, royalties on worldwide “fossil energy projection,” fees for the commercial use of oceans, for air flight, of course for putting carbon in the air, and even fees for the use of “the electromagnetic spectrum.” Oh, and he also envisions chronic economic stagnation, unemployment and labor revolt. The proletariat have to do their part.
This forecast (and the coming burst of that hush-hushed insolvency bubble and ensuing hyperinflation and possibly, famine) is underscored by Soros’ own recent moves to commandeer as many American grain elevators as feasible. Not to worry though, the Marxtream media tell us he is one of our greatest philanthropists, along with so many of the IMF and World Bank lords, to be sure. And here we thought Demon-I-mean-Damien-er, Damon Silvers doesn’t trust rich people.
That should be enough context before delving further into the Bretton Woods and IMF April conferences. One hopes it indicates the strategy engaged by the wealthiest one percent, of one percent, of one percent, this Spring of 2011.
By the way, is anyone in Congress speaking up about all this?
