I was having a discussion with a colleague on financial warfare and did a bit of research, looking at the wonderful articles by Michel Chossudovsky, that are so helpful to understand how the cabal undermined national economies, (1) and the brilliant analyses of Henry C.K. Liu of global market capitalism, (2) when I came across this statement by Liu. It encapsulates what I would characterize as the cabal’s plan to take over the world economy in just three short paragraphs.

Financial-capital growth is to be served at the expense of human-capital growth. Sound money, undiluted by inflation, is to be achieved by keeping wages low through structural unemployment. Pockets of poverty in the periphery are the necessary price for prosperous centers. Such dogmas grant unemployment and poverty, conditions of economic disaster, undeserved conceptual respectability. State intervention has come to focus mainly on reducing the market power of labor in favor of capital in a blatantly predatory market mechanism. …
