NEOLIBERAL ECONOMICS, the theory used to justify globalization—jk 6/08, 4/09, 2/12

There is an evil afoot, neoliberalism economics, the brain child of the globalizers.  It is neither new nor liberal, but the rebirth of the economics practices during the era of the Robber Barons.  It brought on the Great Depression.  Neoliberalism holds that the forces of the market place should be unfettered, viz., without regulations; and a second premise is that the roles of government are better fulfilled by private businesses.  Neoliberalism is the sophistry used to justify the ruling clique’s return to the economic conditions of the 19th century.  It is just a deceptive sales pitch pushed by the corporate media and taught in a university system which has strong ties to the business community.  They say it will bring manufacturing and wealth to the poor countries and skilled jobs to the developed; but these aren’t the results.  Don’t look to the globalizer’s theory and sales pitch, but to their actions and its consequences (as Naomi Kline has done in “The Shock Doctrine”).  Look at the big banks, brokerage houses, and other global corporations.  Through their WTO, World Bank, IMF, and the foreign diplomacy of the wealthy nations, over 200 nations have found it PRUDENT to sign free-trade agreements, which cover much more than trade.  These trade treaties--with acronyms such as NAFTA, CAFTA, AFTA, and MEFTA--require the dismantling of regulations governing their currency and finance, require opening the resources, land, transit, media, utilities, banking, manufacturing, and markets for foreign purchase and competition.  There are over 900 clauses in these trade treaties which require  the undoing of regulations.  This signing of a treaty is a continuation of the ruling clique/party’s historical course of action:  the ruler’s powerbase is tied to the business community and its press. A nation which resists globalization faces economic sanctions. If that fails there is the Marines and NATO.  The principle reason for the Iraq war is MEFTA, with Iraq being hung out as an example—the same occurred with Libya, and Iran will likely experience the same.  The corporate media inculcates a different explanation.  Foreign policy of the developed nations is tied on a global scale to the shadow governments.  Today’s new Robber Barons are not the monopoly capitalists & bankers like Rockefeller, Rothschild, and Morgan, but a much bigger corporate fish.  Their goal is to eliminate local competition, by establishing a world government for whom they are the shadow government.  The business ethics hasn't changed, only the size of the board upon which they play, for now it covers our planet.

There have always been shadow governments.  Consider the words of Theodore Roosevelt, New York Times 1922: These International bankers and Rockefeller-Standard Oil interests control the majority of newspapers and the columns of these papers to club into submission or rive out of public office officials who refuse to do the bidding of the powerful corrupt cliques which compose the invisible government”.  These shadow governments wants globalization, wants bailouts for the financial sector, and governments obeys.  Ours has guaranteed 23.7 trillion of bad loans and speculative vehicles such as derivatives, and we have 80 major military bases around the globe.  U.S. and EU’s domestic & foreign policies promote the type of globalization that the shadow governments want.  They wanted to expand the debt-based currency, so we went off gold 1972—interest payments go to the banks. The expanding currency must be used, and most has gone into shadow banking activities and loans.  Consumer, commercial, and government debts in 2011 totaled over $60 trillion.  Servicing government debt is now the second biggest item in the budget ($454 billion for 2010).  The manufacturing foundation of our economy has been eroded to below 10% of employment—fast-food workers not counted.  This has resulted in an imbalance of trade amounting to over $70 billion per month (more debt).  From 2000 to 2006 the dollar has depreciated against the EURO by 38%--which of course is also loosing purchasing power, but not as fast.  This drop in our dollar’s value keeps the foreign dollars here to buy new T-bills to replace the T-bills that have matured.  This expansion of currency has created for speculators the specter of “Panic”.  It almost caused a 2nd great depression in 08.  What happened in Argentina, Asia, and Greece today, awaits the US.  The Robber Baron’s media passes the blame for economic crisis and strife on national government’s spending, but the shadow government is the ultimate cause.  Debit entails interest payments; crisis entails higher interest rates, foreclosures, and bargain purchases.  The shadow global government profits from these panics.     

The shadow-government policies has resulted in the out-sourcing of jobs, the flood of tariff-free goods, the flood of immigrants and illegal aliens, the reduction of worker’s buying power, the breaking of unions, the reduction of social services, and a shift of the tax burden by a drastic reduction of corporate & the top 1% income taxes.  The U.S. ranks 4th in GDP, yet is 92nd in distribution of wealth—UN stats.  The purchasing power of workers has steadily dropped since 1972, even though their productivity has increased by 45%.  It is consumed by the financial section which makes up 44% of corporate profits.  In 1950s a family got by on one income; there were very few working mothers.  Standards of living are falling not just in the developed nations, but also the poor nations—another fact that the corporate media denies. Global corporations including banking are the foreign weeds choking out native industries around the globe.  We need to return to unions (a voice for the masses), tariffs, and business regulations, like in the 50s.  We need a government with its sole primary duty being the promotion of the well-being of the masses. And this can only be accomplished by ending corporation’s political donations and also by having a public media committed to truth, education, and the public weal. Neoliberalism, the sales tool of the globalizers, is good for the masters of mankind.

Bill Stills is the announcer on the Money Masters, which is available for free at 

THE MONEY MASTERS is a 3 1/2 hour non-fiction, historical documentary that traces the origins of the political power structure. The modern political power structure has its roots in the hidden manipulation and accumulation of gold and other forms of money. The development of fractional reserve banking practices in the 17th century brought to a cunning  sophistication the secret techniques initially used by goldsmiths fraudulently to accumulate wealth. With the formation of the privately-owned Bank of England in 1694, the yoke of economic slavery to a privately-owned “central” bank was first forced upon the backs of an entire nation, not removed but only made heavier with the passing of the three centuries to our day. Nation after nation has fallen prey to this cabal of international central bankers.


The success of the central banking scheme developed into a far-reaching plan described by President Clinton’s mentor, Georgetown Professor Carroll Quigley,  “to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent meetings and conferences. The apex of the system was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world’s central banks which were themselves private corporations. Each central bank….sought to dominate its government by its ability to control Treasury loans, to manipulate foreign exchanges, to influence the levels of economic activity in the country, and to influence cooperative politicians by subsequent economic rewards in the business world.”


Several short-lived attempts to impose the central banking scheme on the United States were defeated by the patriotic efforts of Presidents Madison, Jefferson, Jackson, Van Buren and Lincoln. But with the passage of the Federal Reserve Act of 1913, America was firmly lashed to the same yoke, so that a small number of very rich men have been able to lay upon the masses a yoke little better than slavery itself. That yoke inevitably grows heavier with ever-compounding interest, and totals over $20 trillion of debt owed by the American people today ($80,000 per American) ultimately to these bankers.

This vast accumulation of wealth concentrates immense power and despotic economic domination in the hands of the few central bankers “who are able to govern credit and its allotment, for this reason supplying, so to speak, the life-blood to the entire economic body, and grasping, as it were, in their hands the very soul of the economy so that no one dare breathe against their will.”

The ultimate measure of a government is the public weal (well-being of the people).  But whenever a class of people or clique organize to control a government, they strive to make impotent and co-op all other classes and organizations within that society.  This control results in pyramid of the resources (wealth) of the society with the clique’s share ever increasing at the expense of all others; and this done in proportion to usefulness the others sectors and organizations serve the ruling clique.  In our country (and others) this has occurred by a group of global corporation, with those in the financial sector being the most powerful.  This clique operating as a shadow government has brought about the demise of the unions, and of liberal and socialist political movements.  This clique controls the media and use it for the production of beliefs which promote social tranquility though there is an ever increasing cause for protest.  They have coopted the educational system and steered their media so as to produce consent to what is through content and through a reduction in rational skills of the masses.   They have reworked through appointment of justices who do their bidding our court system so that it promotes their interests including the dismantling of the Bill of Rights.  They have turned the power to police into a force to crush dissent.  This process of change includes a radical restructuring of the military so that corporations such as Black Water will with their mercenaries many of who are foreigners will in time command a larger force and direct operations of the US armed forces.  Thus a loyal force will be used to promote globalization in resistant countries and used to crush domestic revolt.  Unfettered monopoly capitalism has become a global beast without national favoritism.  It is the ne plus ultra of evil for it will bring upon the world a second great depression and dark ages.  Without tariffs all the developed nations eventual will have a poor nation’s standard-of-living.  As Adam Smith observed, “The cruel maxim of the rulers of a nation is ‘All for ourselves; thus nothing for anyone else.’”  A Dark Ages is developing--like the first--with a major decline in the rational skills of the masses and in their standard of living.
