It has long been suspected that there are certain individuals and families in the world who exert an incredibly disproportionate influence over the affairs of humanity when it comes to business, economic and even the nuts and bolt of political policy.
These families, who are all based in the banking industry, have been at the centre of a major storm in the past decade owing to their organisation’s role in the global financial crisis of 2008, and yet they have somehow managed to come out of the crisis not only richer than ever before but also relatively anonymous and able to avoid blame for their actions.
Who really controls the world? The secret lies in the world’s biggest banks
Many people over the years have attempted to pick apart the inner workings of highly influential semi-secret organizations such as the Bilderberg Group, the Illuminati, and the Trilateral Commission. The inner workings of these networking organizations are notoriously oblique to outsiders, and the names of the influential and powerful members are largely still a mystery. Perhaps there is an easier way to discover who are truly the most powerful individuals in the world and that is to examine the largest and most influential banks in the world and those people who control them.
Examination of the eight largest financial corporations in the United States (JP Morgan, Wells Fargo, Bank of America, Citigroup, Goldman Sachs, U.S. Bancorp, Bank of New York Mellon and Morgan Stanley) has revealed that these institutions are controlled entirely by a mere ten shareholders. Furthermore, there are four companies who are represented in making any financial decisions concerning these enormous financial giants – BlackRock, State Street, Vanguard, and Fidelity. In addition to this, the Federal Reserve which exerts a huge amount of influence over the financial and economic affairs of the US government is largely in the thrall of these organizations including the Big Four. This means that the shareholders of these financial institutions effectively control all economic decisions made by the United States government despite the fact that they are not democratically accountable to the American people.
It is also known that the individuals and families who control the Big Four in the United States also have an incredibly long reach across the world. All of the most influential figures in institutions such as the International Monetary Fund, the European Central Bank, the World Bank and, to a lesser extent, all of the European stock exchanges are directly connected to one of the Big Four financial institutions in the United States.
These companies now exert such an extraordinary amount of power over the world that they were able to bring the world’s financial markets to their knees in 2008 owing to the poor decisions made by institutions such as Goldman Sachs which precipitated the global financial crisis. Almost a decade after the financial meltdown, none of the guilty companies have been disbanded and, in fact, the individuals behind them are now even richer than they were before the credit crunch.
Intriguingly, the families who are the beneficiaries and shareholders of the Big Four financial institutions in the United States who exert such a profound influence over the economic affairs of the entire planet are largely hidden in the public domain. However, it is believed that the families behind these organizations include Goldman Sachs, the Rockefellers, the Loebs Kuh, the Lehmans, the Rothchilds, and the Warburgs.
