I happened across this news from a couple of weeks ago when I was researching Transunions TrueCredit service.
It says basically that Goldman Sachs is buying Transunion, who is in debt, because they think that the service will be something they can use in a lot
I'm taking that to mean that Goldman wants everyone in the world that they might do business with to have a credit score.
From the article:
“The conversion of cash to plastic is an unstoppable, global trend and several markets would be well served by a credit bureau like TransUnion,”
said Philip J. Philliou of New York-based Philliou Partners, a payments consultant. “Global expansion has got to be part of Advent's investment
It just strikes me as number of the beast stuff, and I'm not even a Christian. I do think that whole story about the number and all to do trade was a
VERY good analogy for business potential to be dehumanizing to people. I think a good prophesy is good on many levels, in other words.
When I was doing my research, I ran across a lot of people just agonizing over their credit scores. I don't remember my dad doing this in the 70s
when his cash flow dried up. He'd go into the bank and talk to someone he knew. One banker let him get a loan on some cars the banker KNEW were
junked, but he was good for it.
Just wondered if anyone else had thoughts about this. It seems to me there is MASSIVE consolidation going on. Financed by the govt?
