I have a VERY strong suspicion that the wealthiest individuals on this planet aren't on any sort of list, and that no information about them
whatsoever is publicly available.
It's long been my view that the Bilderbergers are, at best, middle-men;......
My thoughts exactly.
Those "high-ups" who we can name are just middlemen or Go-fors. They are very well paid and very intelligent but they are still go-fors.
Lets start with the basics. What does a businessman (owner of a corporation) want????
Access to abundant cheap labor AND a large customer base.
Eliminate farmers and rural self-sufficient communities for the dual purpose of providing labor and customers.
Timeline of the Green Revolution
With World War II, America saw its agricultural system intentionally subjected to political policies that radically transformed it. What was once
a decentralized system that provided a means to self sufficiency and independence for tens of millions of farmers was purposefully centralized into a
capital-intensive fossil-fuel dependent system that restructured local economies, permitting their wealth to be extracted by what are now
transnational cartels dedicated to the so-called free market and globalized trade...
Competition, especially lean aggressive start-up businesses.
Eliminate competition by various methods. Make the excessive paperwork need for large company management mandatory for small
companies too thus turning the unwieldy red-tape disadvantage of the big companies into an advantage. This is done through promoting "Quality"
management systems such as ISO 9000 and through regulatory red tape.
Leveraged Buyouts and mergers are also used to wipe out the competition.
Of mergers and acquisitions each costing $1 million or more, there were just 10 in 1970; in 1980, there were 94; in 1986, there were 346. A third
of such deals in the 1980's were hostile. The 1980's also saw a wave of giant leveraged buyouts. Mergers, acquisitions and L.B.O.'s, which had
accounted for less than 5 percent of the profits of Wall Street brokerage houses in 1978, ballooned into an estimated 50 percent of profits by 1988...
THROUGH ALL THIS, THE HISTORIC RELATIONSHIP between product and paper has been turned upside down. Investment bankers no longer think of themselves as
working for the corporations with which they do business. These days, corporations seem to exist for the investment bankers.... In fact,
investment banks are replacing the publicly held industrial corporations as the largest and most powerful economic institutions in America.... THERE
ARE SIGNS THAT A VICIOUS spiral has begun, as each corporate player seeks to improve its standard of living at the expense of another's.
Corporate raiders transfer to themselves, and other shareholders, part of the income of employees by forcing the latter to agree to lower wages.

...”I'm wondering if there might be a silent majority of Quality readers out there on the topic of ISO 9000. The response to my July editorial,
"Eliminate ISO 9000?," was the heaviest that we have received in some time. I got lots of e-mails from readers about the piece, which reported the
views of Scott Dalgleish, a quality professional who has been publicly critical of the impact of ISO 9000 on manufacturers, and has suggested that
companies eliminate ISO 9000 altogether from their quality management systems.
Many of the responses were quite articulate, and some were humorous and entertaining. You can read a sampling in this month's Quality Mailbag
department on p. 12.
One thing that struck me about the letters I received is that almost all expressed some level of agreement with Dalgleish, particularly on issues
related to excessive ISO 9000 documentation requirements. As you'll see in the Mailbag department, one reader even said that his company has
already dropped its ISO 9001 certification with no apparent negative effects.
What surprised me is that the July editorial elicited no ardent rebuttals in defense of ISO 9000...”

“The harmonization of laws, regulations and standards between and among trading partners requires intense, complex, time-consuming negotiations by
CFSAN officials. Harmonization must simultaneously facilitate international trade and promote mutual understanding, while protecting national
interests and establish a basis to resolve food issues on sound scientific evidence in an objective atmosphere. Failure to reach a consistent,
harmonized set of laws, regulations and standards within the freetrade agreements and the World Trade Organization Agreements can result in
considerable economic repercussions...” www.cfsan.fda.gov...

Here is the sleight of hand used to get the WTO treaty ratified by Congress. During the debate on approving the WTO Agreement, Congress was
justifiably worried that the multinational pact was in conflict with U.S. Sovereignty. Arguments for ratification were vehemently endorsed by Clinton
Administration officials who were eager to get the agreement passed Congress. Congressional fears were lulled by pointing out Congress is ultimately
responsible for changing the laws of the United States; and second, the U.S. is entitled to withdraw from the WTO. Also a feature of the Uruguay Round
agreements are described as follows:
United States Law to Prevail in Conflict The URAA puts U.S. sovereignty and U.S. law under perfect protection. According to the Act, if there is a
conflict between U.S. and any of the Uruguay Round agreements, U.S. law will take precedence regardless when U.S. law is enacted. § 3512 (a) states:
"No provision of any of the Uruguay Round Agreements, nor the application of any such provision to any person or circumstance, that is inconsistent
with any law of the United States shall have effect." Specifically, implementing the WTO agreements shall not be construed to "amend or modify any
law of the United States, including any law relating to (i) the protection of human, animal, or plant life or health, (ii) the protection of the
environment, or (iii) worker safety", or to "limit any authority conferred under any law of the United States, including section 301 of the Trade
Act of 1974." www.eastlaw.net...
The "Food Safety Modernization Act"
just being passed in December 2010 goes in effect 2012. The new law includes the following
SEC. 404. COMPLIANCE WITH INTERNATIONAL AGREEMENTS.
Nothing in this Act (or an amendment made by this Act) shall be construed in a manner inconsistent with the agreement establishing the World Trade
Organization or any other treaty or international agreement to which the United States is a party.
This section of the new law effectively hands control of the US food supply over to a TRADE organization run by the mulit-national Ag cartel.
Also do not forget the Fabian Society who have been training all these high level people such as Tony Blair and Bill Clinton for a hundred years.
