Central Banks Controlling the world since 1694: International Forecaster WeeklySubmitted by niijii on Sun, 03/31/2013 - 14:57
March 30 2013: What does it mean to “control money” in a general sense? Wouldn't that be like 'controlling sand' or 'controlling the waves of the ocean'? This is precisely where our generally accepted understanding of money breaks against the cold hard shores of reality. The fact is that money is not a physical object, or not merely so. It is a medium of exchange. It is a store of wealth. It is a measure of value. Fundamentally, it is an idea.
Henry Kissinger has been oft-quoted as saying: “Who controls the food supply controls the people; who controls the energy can control whole continents; who controls money can control the world.” Regardless of whether or not he ever actually said such a thing (there is no source for this alleged quotation), it is nonetheless an apt observation. In fact, it is true almost by definition. Anyone who disputes this has never attempted to live in hunger, or without energy, or without money.
