And it's groups like this that are going to destroy the lives of billions. Little do they care though. Good find! I wasn't familiar with this one and it's better evidence than most of the other secret groups out there.
Interesting article on one of it's older members:
Today, the bank is richer and more inviolable than ever. Last year, the BIS made a tax-free profit of $1.36 billion—an impressive sum for a bank with just 140 customers.
The Holy See calls for a “financial system that works in service of society”, condemns “the war and all forms of nationalistic arrogance or egoism, including in its financial manifestations” and promotes “an ethical sense of responsibility on the part of big political or economic agents,” encouraging “the free and efficient participation of the poor in building their own economic dignity”.

Great article, thanks for the link! S&F for you!
I can see, based on the mail I have gotten over the past 8 or 9 years, evidence that the BIS does have significant influence. During the financial crisis, the once-steady stream of credit card and financing offers dried up completely. Nothing had changed with my personal situation...still employed, still with another earner in the house, current on all my bills. Solid history of paying on time. Yet suddenly no one was clamoring to lend me money for interest.
Fast-forward to now...my personal situation is the same, and once again I am getting a steady stream of offers.
I respectfully disagree that the BIS runs the world, however.
They may run the part of the world that uses money and stuff to keep score. And have done so for almost a hundred years. And before that, the predecessors of BIS did the same. Think colonialism. And before that, feudalism.
Full disclosure, I do participate in the system to a certain extent, as I have a job at a company owned by private equity interests. My labor benefits the investors and owners who get their cut, but also benefits the users of our products, and my teammates. And my family, as I receive a paycheck in exchange for my labor.
In order for the BIS to rule the entire world, however, I (and all of you) would have to let this relationship with the system define who I (we) am (are) as a person, what I enjoy, what I do with my non-working hours, who I buy from, etc.
