New World Order and Cross-Corporate Directorships

Here's a quick clip from the movie "The Network" to get you warmed up:

This clip brings to mind a quote that I posted in a previous blog:

"Round Tablers fanned out throughout the world to take control of fiscal and monetary policies and political leadership in all countries where they operated." Setting an example for today's interlocking corporate directorships and tax-exempt foundations, "The Round Table itself consists of a maze of companies, institutions, banks and educational establishments, which in itself would take qualified insurance actuaries a year to sort out,"
British Intelligence Officer Dr. John Coleman

And this quote from Dr. Carroll Quigley (also mentioned in a previous blog):

"The powers of financial capitalism had another far reaching aim, nothing less than 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 private meetings and conferences. The apex of the system was the Bank for International Settlements in Basle, Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the worlds' central banks which were themselves private corporations. The growth of financial capitalism made possible a centralization of world economic control and use of this power for the direct benefit of financiers and the indirect injury of all other economic groups." Tragedy and Hope: A History of The World in Our Time (Macmillan Company, 1966,) Professor Carroll Quigley of Georgetown University

What I would be truly curious to see is a comprehensive study of how extensive this web of interlocking directorships and corporate ownership goes. A pair of physicists at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich did a just that. The completed study has yet to be published, but here is what we know so far. This was posted on Washington's blog on 8/28/09:

"Inside Science - a news service supported by the American Institute of Physics - is breaking an important story:
A recent analysis of the 2007 financial markets of 48 countries has revealed that the world's finances are in the hands of just a few mutual funds, banks, and corporations. This is the first clear picture of the global concentration of financial power, and point out the worldwide financial system's vulnerability as it stood on the brink of the current economic crisis.

A pair of physicists at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich did a physics-based analysis of the world economy as it looked in early 2007. Stefano Battiston and James Glattfelder extracted the information from the tangled yarn that links 24,877 stocks and 106,141 shareholding entities in 48 countries, revealing what they called the "backbone" of each country's financial market. These backbones represented the owners of 80 percent of a country's market capital, yet consisted of remarkably few shareholders.

"You start off with these huge national networks that are really big, quite dense," Glattfelder said. “From that you're able to ... unveil the important structure in this original big network. You then realize most of the network isn't at all important."

The most pared-down backbones exist in Anglo-Saxon countries, including the U.S., Australia, and the U.K. ... But while each American company may link to many owners, Glattfelder and Battiston's analysis found that the owners varied little from stock to stock, meaning that comparatively few hands are holding the reins of the entire market.

“If you would look at this locally, it's always distributed,” Glattfelder said.
“If you then look at who is at the end of these links, you find that it's the same guys, [which] is not something you'd expect from the local view.”

Matthew Jackson, an economist from Stanford University in Calif. who studies social and economic networks, said that Glattfelder and Battiston's approach could be used to answer more pointed questions about corporate control and how companies interact.

"It's clear, looking at financial contagion and recent crises, that understanding interrelations between companies and holdings is very important in the future,” he said. "Certainly people have some understanding of how large some of these financial institutions in the world are, there's some feeling of how intertwined they are, but there's a big difference between having an impression and actually having ... more explicit numbers to put behind it"...

The results will be published in an upcoming issue of the journal Physical Review E.
The physicists name names. As Inside Science notes:
Based on their analysis, Glattfelder and Battiston identified the ten investment entities who are “big fish” in the most countries. The biggest fish was the Capital Group Companies, with major stakes in 36 of the 48 countries studied.
While it is true that the paper in the Physical Review E has not yet been published, I have found a draft version of their article from February which shows that the top 10 list of most powerful financial institutions (from most to least powerful) is as follows:
1. The Capital Group of Companies

2. Fidelity Management & Research

3. Barclays PLC

4. Franklin Resources

5. AXA

6. JP Morgan Chase

7. Dimensional Fund Advisors

8. Merrill Lynch

9. Wellington Management Company

10. UBS
Other tidbits:
  • Non-American players Deutsche Bank, Brandes Investment Partners, Societe Generale, Credit Suisse, Schroders PLC and Allianz are also in the top 21 positions.
  • The government of Singapore is number 25.
  • The world's largest banking group - HSBC Holdings PLC - only chimes in at number 26.
The data analyzed in the study is from 2007, and the playing field may have changed substantially since then.

Further analysis using this new methodology may yield important information. For example, given the massive government intervention in the markets, it is important to ask who controls stock now."

Directors sitting on the board of a corporation are elected by the shareholders of said corporation. A small group of stockholders can wind up controlling who gets elected to the board if they own enough shares.

It seems to me that you can't get anywhere on the global stage until you have been elected to sit on the board of a major corporation. Once you gain that position, you have inside information as to how that corporation works. Now you are valuable to the global elitist community and you can get elected to more boards and perhaps even get membership to the Council on Foreign Relations. From that point, many more doors will open up for you so long as you continue to subscribe to the ideologies of those stockholders who got you elected to these boards and of course that you continue to pursue policies complementary to those pursued by the CFR and other globalist organizations. It all starts with these interlocking directorships though. Even CIA directors and high ranking Freemasons need to sit on a board or two if they want to become a major player on the world stage. The stockholders electing these directors remain anonymous by casting their votes through agents (law firms, and trustees, ect). For more on this subject of interlocking directorships and the connections between government agencies, corporate boards, and the small group of stockholders acting as puppet masters for the whole system, please read Eustace Mullins World Order by clicking here and downloading the book as a pdf.
