Meet The Secretive Group That Runs The World by Tyler Durden on 04/12/2015

The following is an excerpt from TOWER OF BASEL: The Shadowy History of the Secret Bank that Runs the World by Adam LeBor. Reprinted with permission from PublicAffairs.

The world’s most exclusive club has eighteen members. They gather every other month on a Sunday evening at 7 p.m. in conference room E in a circular tower block whose tinted windows overlook the central Basel railway station. Their discussion lasts for one hour, perhaps an hour and a half. Some of those present bring a colleague with them, but the aides rarely speak during this most confidential of conclaves. The meeting closes, the aides leave, and those remaining retire for dinner in the dining room on the eighteenth floor, rightly confident that the food and the wine will be superb. The meal, which continues until 11 p.m. or midnight, is where the real work is done. The protocol and hospitality, honed for more than eight decades, are faultless. Anything said at the dining table, it is understood, is not to be repeated elsewhere.

Few, if any, of those enjoying their haute cuisine and grand cru wines— some of the best Switzerland can offer—would be recognized by passers-by, but they include a good number of the most powerful people in the world. These men—they are almost all men—are central bankers. They have come to Basel to attend the Economic Consultative Committee (ECC) of the Bank for International Settlements (BIS), which is the bank for central banks. Its current members [ZH: as of 2013] include Ben Bernanke, the chairman of the US Federal Reserve; Sir Mervyn King, the governor of the Bank of England; Mario Draghi, of the European Central Bank; Zhou Xiaochuan of the Bank of China; and the central bank governors of Germany, France, Italy, Sweden, Canada, India, and Brazil. Jaime Caruana, a former governor of the Bank of Spain, the BIS’s general manager, joins them.

In early 2013, when this book went to press, King, who is due to step down as governor of the Bank of England in June 2013, chaired the ECC. The ECC, which used to be known as the G-10 governors’ meeting, is the most influential of the BIS’s numerous gatherings, open only to a small, select group of central bankers from advanced economies. The ECC makes recommendations on the membership and organization of the three BIS committees that deal with the global financial system, payments systems, and international markets. The committee also prepares proposals for the Global Economy Meeting and guides its agenda.

No, NOT BS at all! Bankers do "run the world" and there can be little or no doubt about that stone cold FACT - especially after The Bankster induced Ponzi-Fiat-Debt-Money "Global Financial Collapse", that we allegedly all faced when the Fed in USA and BoE in UK, bailed out Private Banks with PublicFunds in a MASSIVE transfer - which we all pay for twice; instantly then AND now again with ''Austerity'' for a generation or more so that we can ''Balance their BS Budget Books'' of their fkn Magical Money Matrix!

I really need to stop there .. or else I could blow a gasket but I will end with 100% recommending the excellent documentary ''The Trail of The Troika'' to you and all, because it shows what's happening to Greece, Ireland, Spain, Cyprus and others and so it also shows what happened in USandUK in 2008 and why we should ALL be outraged and start coming together, to oppose this oppression, ''financial repression'' and injustice.Only when we educate ourselves can we claim to be free in our own minds!

Great post and link btw - The BIS exists and it is the private club of Private Central Bankers.

A solution to this BS is accountability and transparency via democracy and THEY fear that!

Finally,''Conspiracy Theory'' = a favorite phrase of those who want us to stay stupid + silent!
