I posted a thread the other day about witnessing a bloodless coup in Italy and Greece, remarking on how neither of their new leaders were elected, and
their appointments amount to a take over of these countries by banks. While I knew both Papademos and Monti had banking ties, and connections to the
EU parliament in Brussels, I didn't know about their connection to Goldman Sachs.
I just got through an interesting article, with the same title as this thread:
Our Friends From Goldman Sachs
It turns out that not only Monti (Italy's new Prime Minister) and Papademos (Greek equivalent) used to work for Goldman, but the new head of the
European Central Bank, Mario Draghi, is also a from Goldman employee.
Ex-Goldman staff comprise the vast majority of financial positions within the US Government, and now seem to be making a move on Europe as well.
I used to think I was a little paranoid, imagining there may be a conspiracy by Goldman and other banks to get control over the worlds politicians and
even countries, but the facts don't lie in this case.
I worked for Goldman in a previous life. The vast majority of lower level staff there think they are part of one of the best companies in the world -
that's certainly true benefit wise. The companies internal noticeboards are covered with posters about contributing to the community, diversity and
just about every other PC thing you can imagine. They hire the best and brightest as part of their graduate program, and indoctrinate them into this
world where they project an internal image of doing good around the world. The fact is, they make nothing except millionaires. They are a leech on
every country they exist in, and sit in the middle of transactions, bleeding economies and countries of wealth.
No wonder these guys are fully behind carbon trading schemes. It's just another way for them to sit in the middle and siphon off funds. They are
truly an enemy of a healthy economy, free and open society and political freedom.
