Paul Singer : Dieser Mann steckt hinter Argentiniens Staatspleite. Wenn Argentiniens Präsidentin Cristina Fernández de Kirchner mal wieder über die "Geierfonds" herzieht, ist in erster Linie ein Mann gemeint.

Paul Singer, Jahrgang 1944, Amerikaner. Er liegt seit Jahren im Clinch mit der Regierung in Buenos Aires. Singer gilt als extrem erfolgreicher Spekulant und Visionär, der die Finanzkrise als einer der Ersten kommen sah. Kein Wunder – beschäftigt er sich doch hauptberuflich mit Krisen und lebt durch seine "Vulture Funds" Elliott und NML gewissermaßen von ihnen. Seine Strategie ist ebenso einfach wie erfolgreich: Singer investiert in Länder und Firmen mit Schulden und Restrukturierungsbedarf. Zu Argentiniens Pech hat sich Paul Singer 2001 auch Obligationen des südamerikanischen Krisenlandes gekauft. Unterstützer von Mitt Romney Paul Singers Investition von 49 Millionen Dollar ist inzwischen 800 Millionen wert. Wer sich mit Singer einlässt, muss sich indes nicht über solche Maßnahmen wundern. Singer setzt sich für gleichgeschlechtliche Ehe ein.

Who controls the world? More resources for understanding. Occupy Wall Street’s slogan “We are the 99%” had been echoing through the United States and the world for just over a month when James B. Glattfelder and his co-authors released the study “The Network of Global Corporate Control” in October 2011. The study was a scientific look at our global economy, revealing how control flows like water through pipes — some thin, some thick — between people and companies. The finding: that control of our economy is highly tightly concentrated into a small core of top players, leaving us all vulnerable to fast-spreading economic distress. James B. Glattfelder: Who controls the world? In today’s talk, filmed at TEDxZurich, Glattfelder reveals that the impetus of the study wasn’t at all to validate global protesters. Instead, the study was conducted out of a desire to understand the laws that govern our economy, in the same way that we understand the laws that govern the physical world around us.

To answer the question, “Who controls the world?” 1. Who Really Runs the World? Conspiracies, Hidden Agendas & the Plan for World Government. Andrew Gavin Marshall, New DawnWaking Times So, who runs the world? It’s a question that people have struggled with since people began to struggle. It’s certainly a question with many interpretations, and incites answers of many varied perspectives.

Often, it is relegated to the realm of “conspiracy theory,” in that, those who discuss this question or propose answers to it, are purveyors of a conspiratorial view of the world. However, it is my intention to discard the labels, which seek to disprove a position without actually proving anything to the contrary. What I intend to do is analyse the social structure of the transnational ruling class, the international elite, who together run the world.

In answering the question “Who Runs the World?” The greatest position of power within the global capitalist system lies in the authority of money-creation: the central banking system. As Georgetown University history professor Carroll Quigley wrote: It was largely Paul M.

President of the PhilippinesFerdinand Marcos began his career with a bang: At age 21, convicted of gunning down Julio Nalundasan, his father's victorious opponent in the Philippines' first national elections, he went to prison. He was later released by a Supreme Court Justice who, like Marcos and his father, was a Nazi collaborator. Despite Marcos's record as murderer, fake WW II hero, and Nazi agent, he was elected Philippines President in 1965.Under Marcos, the Philippines' national debt grew from $2 billion to $30 billion (and his wife Imelda's shoe collection grew along with it to over 1,000 pairs), but U.S. corporations in the Philippines prospered, perhaps explaining why the U.S. didn't protest Marcos' imposition of martial law in 1972.The Carter Administration engineered an $88 million World Bank loan to Marcos, increased military aid to him by 300% and called him a "soft dictator".

In this situation, we cannot fail to be the object of envy and resentment. Our real task in the coming period is to devise a pattern of relationships which will permit us to maintain this position of disparity. ...

Secret Trans-Pacific Partnership Treaty. Capitalism vs. Democracy. Thomas Piketty’s new book, “Capital in the Twenty-First Century,” described by one French newspaper as a “a political and theoretical bulldozer,” defies left and right orthodoxy by arguing that worsening inequality is an inevitable outcome of free market capitalism.

Piketty, a professor at the Paris School of Economics, does not stop there. He contends that capitalism’s inherent dynamic propels powerful forces that threaten democratic societies. Capitalism, according to Piketty, confronts both modern and modernizing countries with a dilemma: entrepreneurs become increasingly dominant over those who own only their own labor. In Piketty’s view, while emerging economies can defeat this logic in the near term, in the long run, “when pay setters set their own pay, there’s no limit,” unless “confiscatory tax rates” are imposed.

First-Ever Political Study of Top 1% Has Found Extreme Conservatism, Intense Political Involvement. Billionaires(image by Michael Fleshman) A year ago, to little public notice, the academic journal Perspectives on Politics published a landmark study, "Democracy and the Policy Preferences of Wealthy Americans," by Benjamin Page, Larry Bartels, and Jason Seawright; which reports that, among the American aristocracy, there exists pervasive extreme conservatism, and also a virtual non-stop involvement in politics by them -- in other words, it finds the same two things that writers have hypothesized to exist among aristocracies throughout all of human history. But, for the first time ever, these researchers have now attached precise numbers to these two hypotheses, and have established that this is the way aristocrats actually are.

Consequently, the much-noted takeover of "Main Street" by "Wall Street" can be explained by the fact that the aristocracy are far more conservative, and also far more politically active, than the general population are. 12% had, with a White House Official.

FDR On American Facism(image by JoeInSouthernCA) Reprinted from Libertarians are profoundly anti-democratic. The folks at Cato that I debate make no bones about their disdain for and fear of democracy. Friedrich von Hayek is so popular among libertarians because of his denial of the legitimacy of democratic government and his claims that it is inherently monstrous and murderous to its own citizens. Here's an example from a libertarian professor based in Maryland. "[W]hen government uses its legal monopoly on coercion to confiscate one person's property and give it to another, it is engaging in what would normally be called theft.

Calling this immoral act "democracy," "majority rule" or "progressive taxation" does not make it moral. But von Hayek's critique of democratic government has proven to be the most monstrous blood libel of the post-World War II era -- falsely declaring that democratic government must end in tyranny and the mass murder of its own people.
