Kissinger sa en gång:
”Who controls the food supply controls the people; who controls the energy can control whole continents; who controls money can control the world.”
Enligt en FN rapport används fiktiva pengar till att köpa fiktiv mat för att driva upp priserna på riktig mat och skapa masssvält (ingen nyhet men att en FN-rapport tagit upp det är lite intressant).
”Global food prices, according to the FAO, are at their highest level since September 2008 – despite projections that this year’s cereal output would be the third highest on record. A new report from the UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food, Olivier De Schutter, examines the role of speculation in the accelerated volatility and hyperinflation of food commodity prices in the ”food price crisis” of 2007/8. He concludes that the evidence shows that ”a significant role was played by the entry into markets for derivatives based on food commodities of large, powerful institutional investors such as hedge funds, pension funds and investment banks.
The report provides a clear analysis of how financial market deregulation has created a world in which the price of virtual food, traded through exotic financial instruments, can drive movements in the price of real food – and with it drive up the number of hungry, which in 2008 surpassed one billion people”
Enligt ekonomiprofessor Michael Hudson har denna psykopaternas mördande parasitismen varit en av USA:s grundpelare i sitt imperiebygge (Hudson förklarar också hur Kissingers mittben, energin, kommer in i bilden).
”This aim is similar to the Carter administration’s plan to create a food crisis to make Third World countries more dependent on the United States. The idea was that the U.S. Government could agree to give them more food, in exchange for their selling their raw materials to American firms. Their governments would have to replace democracy with government that we appoint. This would put the U.S. Secretary of State in charge of their policy, not its own people.
This is how the Americans have impoverished Third World countries, by insisting – for instance through the World Bank and IMF – that they will only be given loans if they agree not to feed themselves but depend on American grain.
So you’re saying that the United States uses the World Bank and the IMF to force other countries to import our farm products?
I’ve described this aim that in Super Imperialism. For the last fifty years the mainstay of the U.S. balance of payments has been agriculture, not industry (except for arms sales, mainly to the oil-exporting dictatorships). The oil exporting countries are permitted to charge as much as they want for their oil, as long as they agree to spend it on American tanks and warplanes, and keep their savings in U.S. banks and securities. Saudi Arabia is now using U.S. tanks against local populations, especially in Bahrain. So the United States balances its payments with these countries by arming them to prevent their populations from bringing about a democratic government that would be less “dependable.”
The Arab Spring is a reaction against this policy of wasting their economic surplus on buying American arms and agreeing to buy American food. That’s the role of the World Bank and IMF – to make other countries dependent on the United States.
And the way they effect that is to get other countries in debt?
That’s right. Not only in debt, but also in food dependency on the United States so that at the stroke the Secretary of State can say: “You’re not on our approved list. We are going to starve your population until you agree to follow American policy and sell off your public domain to American companies.”
This is why I said that finance is the new mode of warfare. Finance and food dependency achieve today what military invasion did in times past.”
Det är finansfiktionens psykopatiska manipulatörer som styr den reella ekonomin och nyttiga idioter kallar det ”marknad”.
