Bretton Woods achieved its fame as the place where the IMF was set up in 1944. One of the persons present was Lord John Maynard Keynes, the British economist. As one who has studied some of the ideas of J.M. Keynes, I have not quite accepted all of the bad press that he now receives. It seems that George Monbiot agrees, that the Keynes proposal was probably better than the one that set up the IMF. I am not in a position to agree or disagree on that point.
The meetings by the IMF at Bretton Woods continue to this day, and the latest meeting was in fact preceded by a secret meeting of Soros conspirators. Arlen Williams writes about the people who attended the latest IMF meeting as well as about the ones who are cahoots with George Soros. It seems that George Soros is the invisible figure behind the push to introduce a world currency. To do that he needs to collapse some world currencies including the Euro and the U.S. dollar.
Here is a snippet from the article at Big Government:
So, just how snugly does Soros’ conference fit in this sandwich and what are the tactical solutions they all so collectively seek? One set of hints has been provided by Soros’ right hand man, Jeffrey Sachs. As reported by Aaron Klein, Jeff is seeking a brave, immediate future including global taxation, currency transfer tax, tax on the rental value of land and natural resources, royalties on worldwide “fossil energy projection,” fees for the commercial use of oceans, for air flight, of course for putting carbon in the air, and even fees for the use of “the electromagnetic spectrum.” Oh, and he also envisions chronic economic stagnation, unemployment and labor revolt. The proletariat have to do their part.
This forecast (and the coming burst of that hush-hushed insolvency bubble and ensuing hyperinflation and possibly, famine) is underscored by Soros’ own recent moves to commandeer as many American grain elevators as feasible. Not to worry though, the Marxtream media tell us he is one of our greatest philanthropists, along with so many of the IMF and World Bank lords, to be sure. And here we thought Demon-I-mean-Damien-er, Damon Silvers doesn’t trust rich people.
