"All animals are equal, but some animals are more equal than others."

"There has been a redoubling of efforts to inflate and distort the global market bubble. Interest rates are pushed down to negative territory, digital currencies are touted as supreme, cash & gold or silver, i.e., anything that can create benchmarks, are denied as valid. Meanwhile, we're told ill-managed banks have passed stress tests, when in reality, they wouldn't pass any reasonable examination." Janet Tavakoli, CBC Interview, Aug 2014
The Banks must be restrained, and the financial system reformed, with balance restored to the economy, before there can be any sustainable recovery."There is a vision to remake the world's economy according to the neo-liberal agenda, and to rule it with an 'iron rod' wielded by the US. It would be under the control, described as benevolent guidance, of an oligarchy of the self-proclaimed wisest and most powerful of the multinational elite. The key goal now is to subdue any effective competition, and to gain the full cooperation of the other major powers. They are testing their model of a confederation of nations under central control in Europe."
