By following the money trail it is possible to  discover how intertwined British Imperialism was with its emergence as an economic power and the prosperity created for the nation.

Please read the following eight short pieces by James Walvin, on the monuments and show pieces across Britain and the people behind them, all connected to various trades directly linked to Slavery.

I will continue to explore this topic in a number of posts in future under a similar title

Nothing is as plain and straight forward as it appears

I could conceivably accept that if all nations were free to trade with each other, equitably, then this would indeed be a great solution to enable prosperity and cooperation across diverse cultures and lands. But this notion assumes every participant actually has any real freedom at all, and that they have all necessary resources available to them.

Freedom has a price, and business of creating and distributing freedom is a lucrative one

I put it you readers, that the prevailing global trade infrastructure is a manipulated construct as a result of an imperialist design.

Putting imperialism into context is foremost before any discourse on the merits or otherwise of neo-capitalism can take place. It is in this vein that I would like to share this remarkably well written piece by Pankaj Mishra…

This praiseworthy organisation is known for providing free, all accessible learning for everyone on a range of core topics.

It does a sterling job of condensing hard to understand subjects, into bite size, digestible knowledge

Few areas have escaped its coverage, and I was fascinated to discover a number of sessions on Banking and Money.

The attached video is one of a three part series explaining how money is created by the private banks, something most people still know little about. This touches many key areas such explaining what Money is, how it actually works and raising valid questions about alternatives.

It doesn’t stop there, you can search for further tutorials on more how banks work, and again how they create money, as well as other technical aspects of the money supply, to name one example.

Its always good to see those of understanding laying bare these facts in a plain manner demonstrating just how easy it is to lift the veil which seems to cover these elements of a modern economy.

I have linked here the latest article from Jim Rickards, touching on what he believes to be the next economic catastrophe. Note the quote below which illustrates his view of lessons not learned sufficiently from the causes of previous crises, and the disdain for perceived wisdom

The equilibrium and value-at-risk models used by banks will not foresee the new panic. Those models are junk science relying as they do on notions of efficient markets, normally distributed risk, continuous liquidity, and a future that resembles the past. None of those hypotheses match reality.

Advances in behavioural psychology have demolished the idea of efficient markets. The future does not resemble the past; it keeps getting worse

 

In 1985 a precedent was set, as the leading economies of the day met to agree a way forward for mutual benefit and growth.

Putting this into perspective, considering modern day interventions, which has become a little too coordinated and frequent. Ultimately the Central bankers continue to take center stage, markets can’t get enough of them. They pour over every word, the syntax and the general impression they give about the coming months, are they feeling too hot or too cold, bull-shit or bear-shit?

These are the puppet masters, managing the stage, setting the scene.

Another example of the manipulation and authoritarian control excercised over our economic reality
