Bilderberg, Trilatérale, "théorie du complot"... Le 4 mai 2013, Arte écrit « La dette de la France se vend bien » , tout en produisant un reportage qui précise que cette « dette » ne cesse d'augmenter. Mais en quoi consiste la prétendue « dette » de la France et d'autres Etats, d'où vient-elle vraiment et quelle peut être la souveraineté concrète des pays ainsi « endettés » ? Et comment la France et d'autres pays jadis « riches » ont-ils pu s'engager dans une politique de privatisations et de délocalisations qui a ruiné leur patrimoine public et leur économie ?

Change.org · The world’s platform for change 1954 Bilderberg Group The Bilderberg Group, Bilderberg conference, Bilderberg meetings or Bilderberg Club is an annual private conference of approximately 120–150 political leaders and experts from industry, finance, academia and the media.

Bilderberg mystery: Why do people believe in cabals? 8 June 2011Last updated at 02:44 Ordinary people can only guess at the goings-on at the meetings of the secretive Bilderberg Group, which is bringing together the world's financial and political elite this week. Conspiracy theories abound as to what is discussed and who is there. Why, asks Tom de Castella? The belief in secret cabals running the world is a hardy perennial. In the manner of a James Bond plot, up to 150 leading politicians and business people are to gather in a ski resort in Switzerland for four days of discussion about the future of the world. Previous attendees of the group, which meets once a year in a five-star hotel, are said to have included Bill Clinton, Prince Charles and Peter Mandelson, as well as dozens of company CEOs. First meeting in 1954, the aim was to shore up US-European relations and prevent another world war.

Americas | Inside the secretive Bilderberg Group How much influence do private networks of the rich and powerful have on government policies and international relations? One group, the Bilderberg, has often attracted speculation that it forms a shadowy global government. As part of the BBC's Who Runs Your World? series, Bill Hayton tries to find out more. The chairman of the secretive - he prefers the word private - Bilderberg Group is 73-year-old Viscount Etienne Davignon, corporate director and former European Commissioner. In his office, on a private floor above the Brussels office of the Suez conglomerate lined with political cartoons of himself, he told me what he thought of allegations that Bilderberg is a global conspiracy secretly ruling the world. "It is unavoidable and it doesn't matter," he says. Lack of publicity In an extremely rare interview, he played down the importance of Bilderberg in setting the international agenda. "I don't think (we are) a global ruling class because I don't think a global ruling class exists.
