"The Global Economic Crisis: The Great Depression of the XXI Century."

Andrew Gavin Marshall, at Global Research, 8 March 2011 wrote "The Global Economic Crisis: Central Banking at the Centre of Power"

Among the points made:

1. The central bankers manage and control things 'for the benefit of the few'.

2. In 1788, the French Monarchy needed money.

Prominent French bankers refused to help the king.

They arranged to have shipments of grain and food to Paris "delayed".

This caused the hunger riots in Paris and sparked the Revolution.

A new ruling class emerged.

The bankers helped Napoleon to come to power.

The bankers fell out with Napoleon.

Napoleon was defeated at Waterloo.

3. The Rothschilds became top bankers with the Battle of Waterloo.

They already had banks in London, Paris, Frankfurt, Vienna and Naples.

They 'profited off all sides in the Napoleonic wars'.

Nathan Rothschild had advance knowledge that Britain had won the Battle of waterloo.

He went to the London Stock Exchange and sold everything he had, 'implying to those watching that the British lost'.

The market crashed.

'Rothschild then bought up the near-entire British stock market for pennies...

'When news arrived of the British victory at Waterloo, Rothschild’s newly acquired stocks soared in value.'

4. Certain people, such as European financiers, were in favour of the American Civil War of 1861-1865.

Lincoln stated that "The banking powers are more despotic than monarchy..."

5. Throughout much of the 1800s and into the 1900s, the United States suffered several economic crises.

Howard Zinn explained: "The crisis was built into a system which was chaotic... It was a system of periodic crises ... that wiped out small businesses ... while the fortunes of the Astors, Vanderbilts, Rockefellers, Morgans, kept growing through war and peace, crisis and recovery.

"During the 1873 crisis, Carnegie was capturing the steel market, Rockefeller was wiping out his competitors in oil...

6. In the early 20th century, European and American banking interests, primarily the Morgans, Rockefellers, Kuhn, Loebs and Warburgs, created a privately owned central bank - the Federal Reserve.
