Interview of the Algerian journalist Kahina Bencheikh El Hocine with Professor Fekete (February 28, 2013)Submitted by Cyril on Sun, 03/17/2013 - 06:51
Fantastic interview, IMO. Reading it left me in awe.
Especially its bottom line.
Yet, I suspect it stayed vastly unnoticed thus far. Let's fix this.
Here's just an excerpt:
"[...]Q.: Germany wanted to find out how much gold there is on its account with the IMF. It was rebuffed. Is the IMF more powerful than a strong Western country such as Germany?
A.: My view is that Germany is not a strong Western country. Rather, like Japan, it is an occupied territory pockmarked with American military bases which have lost all their rationale when the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991. All decisions of the German government can be assumed to be subject to American veto, as long as American troops are stationed in that country. Even the economic strength of Germany is contingent upon extraneous circumstances. For example, it depends on the release the German gold reserve from American custody that could be refused on the flimsiest of pretexts. The IMF is an American puppet. It should have been disbanded in 1973 when the system of fixed foreign exchange rates, which it was conceived to safeguard, was abandoned. It’s tantamount to keeping the hangman on the payroll after capital punishment has been outlawed.[...]"
