Unreported Soros Event Aims to Remake Entire Global Economy

* Unreported Soros Event Aims to Remake Entire Global Economy

March 29th, 2011 03:31 pm · Posted in NEWS (Iraq & World Currency)

Two years ago, George Soros said he wanted to reorganize the entire global economic system. In two short weeks, he is going to start – and no one seems to have noticed.

On April 8, a group he’s funded with $50 million is holding a major economic conference and Soros’s goal for such an event is to “establish new international rules” and “reform the currency system.” It’s all according to a plan laid out in a Nov. 4, 2009, Soros op-ed calling for “a grand bargain that rearranges the entire financial order.”

The event is bringing together “more than 200 academic, business and government policy thought leaders’ to repeat the famed 1944 Bretton Woods gathering that helped create the World Bank and International Monetary Fund. Soros wants a new ‘multilateral system,” or an economic system where America isn’t so dominant.

More than two-thirds of the slated speakers have direct ties to Soros. The billionaire who thinks “the main enemy of the open society, I believe, is no longer the communist but the capitalist threat” is taking no chances.

Thus far, this global gathering has generated less publicity than a spelling bee. And that’s with at least four journalists on the speakers list, including a managing editor for the Financial Times and editors for both Reuters and The Times. Given Soros’s warnings of what might happen without an agreement, this should be a big deal. But it’s not.

What is a big deal is that Soros is doing exactly what he wanted to do. His 2009 commentary pushed for “a new Bretton Woods conference, like the one that established the post-WWII international financial architecture.” And he had already set the wheels in motion.

Just a week before that op-ed was published, Soros had founded the New York City-based Institute for New Economic Thinking (INET), the group hosting the conference set at the Mount Washington Resort, the very same hotel that hosted the first gathering. The most recent INET conference was held at Central European University, in Budapest. CEU received $206 million from Soros in 2005 and has $880 million in its endowment now, according to The Chronicle of Higher Education.

This, too, is a gathering of Soros supporters. INET is bringing together prominent people like former U.K. Prime Minister Gordon Brown, former Fed Chairman Paul Volcker and Soros, to produce “a lot of high-quality, breakthrough thinking.”

While INET claims more than 200 will attend, only 79 speakers are listed on its site – and it already looks like a Soros convention. Twenty-two are on Soros-funded INET’s board and three more are INET grantees. Nineteen are listed as contributors for another Soros operation – Project Syndicate, which calls itself “the world’s pre-eminent source of original op-ed commentaries” reaching “456 leading newspapers in 150 countries.” It’s financed by Soros’s Open Society Institute. That’s just the beginning.

The speakers include:

Volcker is chairman of President Obama’s Economic Advisory Board. He wrote the forward for Soros’s best-known book, ‘The Alchemy of Finance’ and praised Soros as “an enormously successful speculator” who wrote “with insight and passion” about the problems of globalization.

Economist Jeffrey Sachs, director of The Earth Institute and longtime recipient of Soros charity cash. Sachs received $50 million from Soros for the U.N. Millennium Project, which he also directs. Sachs is world-renown for his liberal economics. In 2009, for example, he complained about low U.S. taxes, saying the “U.S. will have to raise taxes in order to pay for new spending initiatives, especially in the areas of sustainable energy, climate change, education, and relief for the poor.”

Soros friend Joseph E. Stiglitz, a former senior vice president and chief economist for the World Bank and Nobel Prize winner in Economics. Stiglitz shares similar views to Soros and has criticized free-market economists whom he calls “free market fundamentalists.” Naturally, he’s on the INET board and is a contributor to Project Syndicate.

INET Executive Director Rob Johnson, a former managing director at Soros Fund Management, who is on the Board of Directors for the Soros-funded Economic Policy Institute. Johnson has complained that government intervention in the fiscal crisis hasn’t been enough and wanted “restructuring,” including asking “for letters of resignation from the top executives of all the major banks.”

Have no doubt about it: This is a Soros event from top to bottom. Even Soros admits his ties to INET are a problem, saying, “there is a conflict there which I fully recognize.” He claims he stays out of operations. That’s impossible. The whole event is his operation.

INET isn’t subtle about its aims for the conference. Johnson interviewed fellow INET board member Robert Skidelsky about “The Need for a New Bretton Woods” in a recent video. The introductory slide to the video is subtitled: “How currency issues and tension between the US and China are renewing calls for a global financial overhaul.” Skidelsky called for a new agreement and said in the video that the conflict between the United States and China was “at the center of any monetary deal that may be struck, that needs to be struck.”

Soros described in the 2009 op-ed that U.S.-China conflict as “another stark choice between two fundamentally different forms of organization: international capitalism and state capitalism.” He concluded that “a new multilateral system based on sounder principles must be invented.” As he explained it in 2010, “we need a global sheriff.”

In the 2000 version of his book “Open Society: Reforming Global Capitalism,” Soros wrote how the Bretton Woods institutions “failed spectacularly” during the economic crisis of the late 1990s. When he called for a new Bretton Woods in 2009, he wanted it to “reconstitute the International Monetary Fund,” and while he’s at it, restructure the United Nations, too, boosting China and other countries at our expense.

“Reorganizing the world order will need to extend beyond the financial system and involve the United Nations, especially membership of the Security Council,’ he wrote. ‘That process needs to be initiated by the US, but China and other developing countries ought to participate as equals.”

Soros emphasized that point, that this needs to be a global solution, making America one among many. “The rising powers must be present at the creation of this new system in order to ensure that they will be active supporters.”

And that’s exactly the kind of event INET is delivering, with the event website emphasizing “today’s reconstruction must engage the larger European Union, as well as the emerging economies of Eastern Europe, Latin America, and Asia.” China figures prominently, including a senior economist for the World Bank in Beijing, the director of the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, the chief adviser for the China Banking Regulatory Commission and the Director of the Center on U.S.-China Relations.

This is all easy to do when you have the reach of George Soros who funds more than 1,200 organizations. Except, any one of those 1,200 would shout such an event from the highest mountain. Groups like MoveOn.org or the Center for American Progress didn’t make their names being quiet. The same holds true globally, where Soros has given more than $7 billion to Open Society Foundations – including many media-savvy organizations just a phone call away. Why hasn’t the Soros network spread the word?

Especially since Soros warns, all this needs to happen because “the alternative is frightening.” The Bush-hating billionaire says America is scary “because a declining superpower losing both political and economic dominance but still preserving military supremacy is a dangerous mix.”

The Soros empire is silent about this new Bretton Woods conference because it isn’t just designed to change global economic rules. It also is designed to put America in its place – part of a multilateral world the way Soros wants it. He wrote that the U.S. “could lead a cooperative effort to involve both the developed and the developing world, thereby reestablishing American leadership in an acceptable form.”

That’s what this conference is all about – changing the global economy and the United States to make them “acceptable” to George Soros.

You're both right, and look at how he's funding Media Matters to hire interns to find ways to go after Fox news. What a joke. Oh, but if anyone says a negative thing about this or the administrations relationship with him, we're the bad guy.... What a joke...

Remember there have always been two competing currency and financial giants in the worl;d. Today, it is the Rothschiolds and the euro as one, The U.S. Dollar and the IMF is another. Soros is a lone wolf, a spoiler. But my bet is on the Eruo or the Dollalr. Both want Iraq to succeed.

Media Matters is an outstanding organization. Faux needs to be gone after as they have repeatedly been caught in bold lies. Can you deny that they have used false video footage to push an agenda driven story or that they have on numerous occasions put a D next to the name of some Repub that was exposed in scandalous news piece? Compared to the imps at Faux I'll take my chances with Soros. Use your imagination as to what imps implies. We are getting down to brass tacks now as "Good" is on the watch. Get me?

I consider myself middle of the road on the political spectrum, but this is the kind of garbage that both sides are resorting to. The Reactionary Right and the Radical Left are ruining this country, not one or the other.

This article about Soros is so slanted and untrue. It was obviously written by someone in a conservative think tank. Soros is not the devil and has spent his money in good faith on good, honest organizations.

Media Matters....what a great group. And for anyone that doesn't know this, David Brock, the founder of Media Matters, was once a Republican operative. He was the guy that thought up the "Trooper Gate" scandal against Clinton, among others. He accounts all of his low-down activities in a book he wrote (name slips me at the moment), but you can Google it. Brock became so sickened by what he had done as a Republican operative, he cleaned himself up, looked for forgiveness, and started Media Matters.

As for Fox News, Rupert Murdock and Roger Ailes are the lowest of low. They are liars and the scum of the earth. Of course, you Fox watchers don't see it. You probably think Obama was born in a foreign country. Pathetic.

Bash away.

I agree that this man is dangerous to the world as a whole---I am happy to see many others in all different venues are beginning to be aware of this threat---but this must be looked into much deeper who are his supporters , who would take the reigns if he suddenly became incapcitated or had a sudden health problems or died!

Would the global assault continue--I can only recall in methalogy the HYDRA---cut off one head and two grow back--unless the cut is cauterized.

Just a thought, just trying to present questions that should be looked into---conspirecy--you betcha and I believe there are two silent partners involved --one american - one other from great britain

well ,don't want to become a OKIE---just want everyone to think for themselves

I get you, you think MM is "an outstanding organization", and I think so too. An outstandingly biased Soros funded organization... if you think they are more fair and make less mistakes than Fox News then you certainly can have them. And please take your chances and Soros to some other country. God Bless America and give the nation destroyer George Soros what he deserves... the sooner the better!

To hell with that man.

Absolutely, good call but even that would be too good for that man <_<

He is the single largest individual threat to the United States, and he has so much control no one will even discuss it! He is a Financial Terrorist!

Agree'd completely, absolute power corrupts absolutely. However Glenn Beck has been discussing him this week, today, yesterday, etc. I know Fox news bla bla bla, but I watch CNN, FOX, and others and Fox is the only one that reports the majority of the truth. Anyone that says otherwise is a waste of my time and effort. Forget name calling...... There are no words to describe my contempt for what the other media's hide.

Probably have never been a veteran or a war veteran if you think otherwise, let alone a patriot. Just my opinion. There are many hero's out there including civilians that have served over seas and seen first hand instead of sitting here being an arm chair quarterback. LOOSERS!

Have a nice day while you have your freedom we have provided you.

You couldn't have a rational discussion with one because you wouldn't be armed with the truth. By the way, we aren't bothered by the grade school insults. You stay in the small world and we'll be fine.:P:P

We actually sit here and feel sorry for you guys, you just really don't get it! No argument. Just it is you that is in the small percentage (small world) point in fact, if you were right then why is the rest of the world killing each other over what we fight to protect! Rhetorical not a question.

Clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right. Here I am stuck in the middle with you. :lol: I list myself as an independent because I embrace about half of each party's platform.

I understand where both ends are coming from - but that doesn't mean I want either one controlling things.

Have yet to see if all this new wealth is going to make me more conservative.<_<

With regard to George Soros. I don't have a link, but I read somewhere not to long ago in a financial journal that Soros is a huge stock holder in PetroBras - the Brazilian Oil Company that Obama was promoting last week. Huuummmmm!!!! Can't you just hear the conversation betweed Soros and Obama. Soros is probably telling Obama that he will contribute huge $$$$ amounts to his re-election campaign but in return Soros needs Obama to promote Petrobras and OK their drilling in the gulf so they can sell their oil to the U.S. Sweet deal for Obama and Soros - while the oil workers on the US Gulf Coast have no jobs due to the US Oil drilling moratorium placed on them by WHO - Obama! George Soros operates for the good of George Soros and no one else. He is not philantrophic or altruistic. Obama operates for the good of Obama. Obama is "community organizing" while in the Oval office to his benefit so that he will not want for anything after he is no longer presdent (I pray is comes sooner then later). So, Soros and Obama are "birds of a feather." I am beginning to think that New Black Panther guy that went on a recent rant about Obama is probably closer to being right about Obama then wrong. What is going on globally is downright frightening. Soros and Obama are on a march to diminish America's standing on the world stage. They are both guilty of treason against the U.S. The Congress needs to impeach Obama, just ask Dennis Kucinich and Michael Moore - once staunch supporters of Obama. Obama and Soros are both an Anathema!

This man is evil "Soros". He has his fingerprints/influence on many very important people and organizations throughout the world including our own "Manchurian Candidate". Soros is funding a P/R campain and agenda that will bankrupt America and other counties.

Regarding this "Unreported Soros Event", I just pulled the agenda from the INET site. So the title of this thread is untrue to start. After reviewing the agenda, you will see that the participants are world renown economists, professors, journalists, and heads of state. This is an international group, with many Americans, including Larry Summers.

If you can still say that this conference's motus operandi is the remake the global economy to Soros' fancy, you need to read it again. The conference is examining situations and discussing how to get the most, learn the most, and possibly improve the global economy.

This thread was a sham, full of hate, and written by someone that needs a financial education.
