Nobel Prize winning economist Joe Stiglitz wrote in the New York Times that we have grossly miss-managed globalization. While I agree with almost everything he wrote, I want to point out that there was no miss-management involved.
In fact, it was quite the opposite. The truth is that the global system was painstakingly constructed by legions of intelligent and competent corporate lawyers and lobbyists to the exact specifications laid down by the Great Architect, David Rockefeller.
The system was designed to monetize the middle class; to convert its wealth into trillions of corporate profits stashed away in the Cayman Islands, safely out of the reach of the IRS.
And it has done so rapidly, and with ruthless efficiency. It is a glittering jewel of pure evil revered by psychopathic oligarchs the world over.
Stiglitz also complains that:
“…the Trans-Pacific Partnership negotiations have been taking place in secret, forcing us to rely on leaked drafts to guess at the proposed provisions.”
Well of course! This has been the case for decades! Sure, the Constitution says that Congress has the power to negotiate trade treaties, but David Rockefeller drove a stake through that part of the Constitution long ago. Today, trade policy is made at a level above the Congress – the corporate level, and mere plebs like Stiglitz literally do not have a right to know what the corporate lawyers are doing in their meetings.
It is none of our business. The policy will be handed down to Congress for rubber-stamping, and that will be it, and we will like it or lump it.
If you want to reform globalization, it is critical that you realize what you are up against. It is not merely a matter of choosing the right economic- and trade policies. It is a matter of repossessing the legal power from the Deep State to make those policies at all.
