Well here's another fascinating article from ZeroHedge concerning the machinations of George Soros (and for that matter, the machinations of German Eurocrats):
Well we're all familiar with what George Soros did to the British pound a few years back, and some insist to this day he could not have done it without inside knowledge if the Bank of England's computer algorithms and so on. In short, he had inside help.
What gibes me pause here is the critique of axiomatic economic theory, which, in the main, I agree with. But what is questionable is whether or not Germany should continue to bite the bullet for the rest of Europe, or indeed, maintain its leadership role in the European Union.
On the axiomatic approach to economics, I have written at this to some degree in the second chapter of Babylon's Banksters with the observations of the Foundation for the Study of Cycles. There, I noted that one conclusion that Edward Dewey reached was that there was little governments could do to change the actual cycle itself. Their policies could only ameliorate, or exacerbate, the cycle, not reverse it. The cycles, in other words, were somehow grounded in a physics of vast overlapping waves.
But, as many here also know, I have maintained that there is a link between consciousness and the physical medium. This much, at least, has been one of the profounder implications of quantum mechanics since Heisenberg first formulated the Uncertainty Principle. The author of the article linked above, Tyler Durden, gets this. Indeed, economic crises are not just about cycles, but about human perceptions of those cycles. And it is here where those financial elites can indeed step in and ameliorate, or exacerbate, perceptions of those cycles and public perceptions of economic and financial events.
There may indeed be a countdown going on for Europe. But one cannot blame the Italians, Spanish, Portuguese or Greeks for not wanting to surrender their bullion reserves, and national treasures, as collateral for Eurobonds... indeed, it's the latter proviso that indicates in a subtle way something else I've been maintaining, namely, that there is a quiet, almost secretive Ahnenerbe-like quest by the elites to acquire and control antiquities. Antiquities are powerful cultural symbols, a kind of magical talisman that wields power over public perceptions. Additionally, for someone like Soros to state publicly that there is a countdown for Europe, to my mind, opens the possibility of the manipulation of perceptions.
Economics and finance do have a link to physics, but they also have a link to perceptions and the strange feedback loops that exist between the cycle, the perception, and the medium. And of course, the central fact of flawed economic theory - in spite of the best efforts of Rothbard, von Mises, and others - remains: central banks exercise an inordinate amount of influence, and their track record at exacerbating economic cycles is, by now, no longer such a moot point.
See you on the flip side.
