Bretton Woods Is Dead: What Next?
July 27, 2019

Today the world has captured a second chance to revive the “great dream”. In the 21st century, this great dream has taken the form of the New Silk Road, led by Russia and China (and joined by a growing chorus of nations yearning to exit the invisible cage of colonialism).

June 3, 2019

The failure to take into accurate account the vast changes and growth in the world’s physical economy is on display in the case study of Venezuela, whose leadership reflects a rational model, but which does not follow the diktats of the Washington Consensus.

Central Banks: The Untouchables
July 15, 2016

Central banks are key institutions responsible for issuing currency, monitoring private banks and carrying out a country’s monetary policy.

This July the world marks the 70 years anniversary of Bretton Woods Conference, formally known as the United Nations Monetary and Financial Conference… As 70 years since Bretton Woods have passed, a heavy blow was delivered against international financial institutions.

Soros does not like America because it still retains far too many attributes of a state. This is why Soros was one of Obama’s main sponsors during the pre-election presidential campaign. This also explains what initially seem to be certain illogical decisions and acts of the White House’s current occupant that are troubling the real patriots of America…
