A GHOST IN THE MACHINE
It is very, very strange that all these corporations, theoretically in competition with each other, all actually own each other's companies. The scientists were shocked, because the ownership was far more entangled and interrelated than anyone could ever have imagined - even for those with the unsavory label of a "conspiracy theorist." These were not crackpots.
Credible scientists explored virgin territory, using supercomputers and a vast database - and discovered an astonishing "ghost in the machine."
LET'S TAKE A CLOSER LOOK
In this diagram, taken from the Swiss study, we see a better illustration of the core - including some of the top players within it, and their relationships.
Look closely. Some of these names should already be quite familiar to you:
Names that immediately jump out include Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan Chase, Lehman Brothers, Morgan Stanley, Bank of America, Merrill Lynch, Citigroup, UBS, Deutsche Bank and Barclays.
These are almost all financial institutions. They are supposed to be in compe-tition with each other. Most of their employees certainly think they are. What the hell are they doing by all owning each other's companies?
THE GREATEST MAGIC TRICK ON EARTH
It's almost like a magic show. The magician uses mis-direction to get his audience to look away from the stage, at just the right time, to create compelling illusions.
[A very interesting synchronicity happened right after I added this picture the next morning. See the update section below.]
In this case, the illusion would be that if you invest in one of these financial institutions, you are hoping that you will earn more profits than if you went with one of the others. No one knew that they were all actually working together. No matter which one of these companies you invest in, all your money is going to the same players. It's like a casino that is rigged to insure the "house always wins."
THE CORE IS EARNING 20 PERCENT OF ALL THE PROFITS ON EARTH
This is still just the beginning. It gets much more outrageous from here. This "core" of 1,318 companies owns other corporations that in total, are earning 20 percent of all the money there is to make in the world.
The quotes to prove this will appear in just a minute. This fact alone reveals that there is an astonishing monopoly at play in the world. Any interconnected matrix of control like this should be subject to vast, sweeping anti-trust legislation. Otherwise, there are all sorts of insider moves that can be made to financially exploit the people.
THE CORE CONTROLS AN ADDITIONAL 60 PERCENT OF
GLOBAL REVENUES - OVER THEIR OWN 20 PERCENT!
However, in addition to their own 20 percent share the "core" also appeared to own and control the stock in a majority of all the largest companies in the world.
These companies' profits add up to an additional 60 percent of global revenues. The results of our investigation just got much worse. This is nothing short of staggering:
Although they represented 20 per cent of global operating revenues, the 1,318 [corporations] appeared to collectively own, through their shares, the majority of the world's large blue chip and manufacturing firms - the "real" economy, representing a further 60 per cent of global revenues.
[This] core of 1,318 companies [had] interlocking ownerships. Each of the 1,318 had ties to two or more other companies, and on average they were connected to 20 [other corporations].
