The BRICs Take Over
Banking on BRICS to deliver ... Even as New Delhi prepares for the arrival of BRICS Heads of States ... Besides the usual declarations on cooperation on political matters, social challenges, climate and energy, food and water, health and education, industry and trade, BRICS is likely to make two significant announcements this time, which will, in many ways, mark its coming of age. First — the formal launch of the "BRICS Exchange Alliance" in which the major stock exchanges of BRICS countries will offer investors index-based derivatives trading options of exchanges in domestic currency. This will allow investors within BRICS to invest in each other's progress, expand the offerings of the individual exchanges, facilitate greater liquidity, while simultaneously strengthening efforts to deepen financial integration through market-determined mechanisms. From talking to people in the know, this alliance is good to go, and the operational modalities around currency, settlement cycles and inter-exchange regulatory coordination are all issues that have been thought through and resolved. – The Hindu
Dominant Social Theme: The BRICs are a growing force that have come from nowhere to challenge the West.
Free-Market Analysis: Being natural skeptics, our elvish brain-trust distrusts the general BRIC ruckus. The argument (see above excerpt) is that the BRICs, in the natural order of things, have emerged to challenge a failing West. Now they are launching a joint derivatives stock exchange and their own version of a World Bank.
In fact, this narrative, from our point of view, is more directed history. Directed history is the faux history that the top Western power elites foment on a regular basis as they attempt to create world government.
This elite is fairly merciless and is not above fomenting world war apparently – which it used twice last century to try to create global government.
The elites work by creating dialectics. First they created nation-states via "colonialism," it would seem, and now they are aggregating these nation-states and creating a global dialectic.
There are several dialectics that the power elite is trying to create currently. One is an Islam-versus-the-West dialectic. We've written about this quite a bit. Another is the emergent BRICs-against-the-West dialectic.
Out of these dialectics, a new world order will apparently form: Thesis ... antithesis ... synthesis. For those who argue that the BRICs' emergence is a natural occurrence, we would point out that the name was made up by a Goldman Sachs banker and that the economic systems in place in the BRICs is a Western one.
The BRICs' current prosperity is, in our view, driven by a series of central banking bubbles and capital relocation of Western corporations away from Europe and the US.
One of the very little known methods by which technology was transferred wholesale away from the West was via "industrial standards." Several industrial standards were put into place by the West's largest corporations and industrial trade groups.
These standards forced companies to conform if they wanted to do business with the biggest Fortune 500 companies. Over time, companies had to draw up entire maps of how they produced their products.
As larger companies drew up these maps, it became easier and easier to transfer whole manufacturing facilities overseas. And that's what has taken place.
None of it is natural or inevitable. Certainly not the emergence of the BRICs, whose hyperstimulated economies are based on monopoly money printing just as in the West.
The combination of Western industry and technology plus Western banking systems has created the perception of a developing world rival to Western economic might.
In fact, this is a fairly artificial phenomenon, in our view. Just as the elites are pushing the BRICs up, so they are shoving the West down. The world must be homogenized – industrialization and living standards evened out – before true globalism can be established.
In our view, this is what's occurring now. We don't really believe all this is occurring "organically." Absent the kind of massive interference that is taking place in the world as the elites move human populations around like so many chess pieces, human cultures would be a good deal more discreet and static.
The kind of change that is taking place is manufactured. It is artificial. It is a galloping and galumphing evolution based on hyper-money printing and command-and-control corporatism.
Here's a video, one of many, that purveys this elite fairy tale.

I smell a rat, more specifically, I smell a Rothschild. This is controlled-opposition to make people think the increasingly unpopular IMF has a challenger, but it's the same bankers in different clothing.

Hey DB, great job of breaking this down. I would recommend DB get some YouTube presence. This article should be on Infowars.

Work, what a novel idea!
You can have opinions, and I share a lot of them with you guys, thanks a lot for the nice work you are doing.
But... , Just be careful not to be carried away with extrapolating your analysis without restraint.
Demographics, complacency, hubris and arrogance are very noxious cocktail indeed. The list is long.
Dominance and suppression just come to and end, so does the other end of it. It's an inevitable occurrence in human existence, the only consideration being time, and the Arrow of Time doesn't stand idle. It holds true for all aspects of life.
This is simply a very narrow assessment of things. "Those countries need "the mercy" of the eugenicists in order to improve, otherwise the "natural order of things" should remain. (did you see how Soros and Gates look lately).
The idea that TPTB would care for a fair world (order) just strikes me as the most unlikely scenario. Did you forget the Georgia "guiding" stones, if you were to believe any of that.
Did ever read Plato's Republic, the real basis for Eugenics.
These people are not that altruist. TPTB altruism is the irrefutable implication of your piece. In this instance your assertions are just counter intuitive. Of course you can hedge that with other "ulterior motives".
What about the fact that young people want to improve their lives with the fruit of their work. They want to buy things they don't yet have. Where does human action come into play? Have you been to the grounds?
And don't forget demographics, business cost structure, financial oppression and being spoiled, demographics!
Please go back to Plato, give it a good look!

We are not sure what point you are trying to make ... sorry.

Messages about the elite's manipulations abound in mass entetrtainment. The directed history of the first world war is given insight in the second Sherolock Holmes movie ; the Professor Mauriarty tells Holmes of his investment in various armanent companies, medical supply companies, etc. giving the viewer the idea this was will be started for corporate profits of those who 'direct' history to create conflict; alas, most of the masses are too dumbed down, too debilitated with flouride, prozac, zanex, illicit drugs and public school educations to evenb notice such.

Maybe the Department of Defense should be remaned the Department of Offense.
