A gaping hole in the Economic Matrix: The greatest economic matrix ever devised is blowing its engine
Lately, I’ve been posting articles about elite power groups and their historical connections to Russia.
Here is a piece that raises a problem these power groups have been facing—-a problem that won’t go away.
I wrote and posted this article On June 10, 2015. Here it is:
A problem for Globalism
Stay with me on this one. You’ll see what the powers-that-be are really worried about.
You can roll up Bilderberg, the Trilateral Commission, the Council on Foreign Relations, the World Trade Organization, NAFTA, and the several current trade treaties nearing completion…you can insert all these Rockefeller Globalist forces into one great corporate agenda, and…
There is a problem. A problem for Globalism. This is, behind the scenes, what the titans of control are whispering about.
It starts here: understand that mega-corporations are the instruments of world domination. They move into countries where cheap labor, land, and resources are abundant, and they take over. This is what they’re meant to do. This is the plan.
Intelligence agencies and armies may precede them, but the corporations are the most capable organizations on the planet, when it comes to exercising enduring control.
It’s been estimated that the top three or four hundred corporations are responsible for at least 25% of all world trade.
The consumer base for these mega-corporations shrinks
However…here is the rub. As Globalist policies allow corporations to shut down domestic factories in their own industrialized countries and open up those same factories in places where slave wages are the order of the day; as tariffs on imported goods are canceled, killing off businesses that try to compete with mega-corporations; as leading economies decline…
The consumer base for these mega-corporations shrinks.
To put it simply, the corporations sell products. They need buyers. All over the world.
The top manufacturing corporations are running their assembly lines at about half-capacity. They could produce much, much more of what they sell.
But only about an eighth of the world population has the means to buy these products.
There are partial fixes for the problem: profit-making wars; sales of corporate products to governments; governments basically paying citizens so they can buy certain products. But, in the long run, these solutions don’t cut it. The mega-corporations are still lacking consumers. You can create only so many artificial buyers. Beyond that, the market system irretrievably heads downward.
The snake has been eating its tail for some time now
Mega-corporations have the potential to produce and sell more and more; the consumer base is shrinking.
***Globalism, the very system that is determined to elevate the power of mega-corporations, is diminishing the number of people who can consume what the corporations make.
The snake has been eating its tail for some time now.
Mega-corporate CEOs and their advisors aren’t completely stupid. Some of them see the handwriting on the wall.
World Bank and IMF fixes aren’t going to make this problem go away.
Neither is some drastic depopulation program. That would be heading in the wrong direction. Fewer consumers.
What about a radical re-set involving a new global currency? Suppose, for example, every inhabitant of the planet were outfitted with a free credit card carrying substantial buying power? Theoretically, that might work, if you discount what people who actually earn a living are going to do when they see billions of their fellow humans who don’t work outfitted with comparable consuming power. And that rumbling class warfare would be just the stormy beginning of the trouble.
It turns out that the Globalist agenda has an expiration date
Creating money out of thin air to satisfy the avarice of banks, to pay off governments’ soaring debt, to boost corporate bottom lines is one thing. Creating money out of nothing to make six or seven billion brand new consumers is quite another thing. In that case, the corporate-welfare gifting would lead to pollution and destruction of the environment on a scale that makes current levels look like a few leaking picnic baskets on a Sunday park outing.
There is another factor to consider: technological innovation. For mega-corporations, that means robots/machines replacing humans as employees. More unemployment—-unless the corporations hold back and refrain from implementing the “automation revolution.”
The corporate thrust, however, is always about moving forward. More robots in the workplace. Bigger assembly lines. Higher production.
It turns out that the Globalist agenda has an expiration date. Beyond it, the system comes apart at the seams.
The normal solution to a problem of this magnitude is: think short-term; avoid the inevitable; pretend all is well; leave the answers to the next generation.
Consider how hard-charging greed-head mega-corporate masters would react to the following proposition: “Look boys, we know you have the ability to produce goods for two or three planets the size of Earth. But we want you to service only a tenth of one planet, and that base will shrink further. Okay? Don’t worry, be happy. Everything is fine.”
Behind every Bilderberg, CFR, Trilateral conference, this is the specter that lurks in the shadows

They’re not worried about escalating the level of their political control over populations. It’s the economics that don’t add up, no matter how many holes in the dam are temporarily plugged.
Every present Globalist agenda-item does two things: a) it aims at tighter control of populations, and b) it enforces and progressively lowers a ceiling on mega-corporations. It reveals a future in which the number of those corporations will be drastically reduced. And that’s the rub. That’s the hidden factor.
Yes, the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. But everyone who thinks that analysis is the core of the current crisis is looking no farther than the end of his nose.
It turns out that decentralization of power, on every level, is more than just the hope and dream of a relative few. It’s a planet-wide imperative; and survival is at stake.
The greatest economic matrix ever devised is blowing its engine.
