II doesn't help anyone or do anything for me to be able to say I've been telling people for years that the big banks are crooked. I once worked in the "World Headquarters" of one of those big banks. I was a lowly clerk but I got in on the ground floor of the computer invasion of workplace when they bought a big computer system for saving money through computerization of their document production by doing it 'in house"and had me trained and made me as the bank's official "typesetter."
This gave me an interesting opportunity to peek behind the managerial curtain by working on stuff that was not meant for public view.
One project was a series of manuals describing step by step hoe to do exactly what Mr. Reich describes -- currency manipulation. Helping companies pay for things by buying different national currencies, schlepping them back and forth, and skimming off the difference. I thought at the tine that this has to be a criminal act,
But nobody wanted to think that these dignified organizations run by men and women wearing suits were and not acting like not committing what people think of crime. That couldn't possibly be possible.
But they are and always have been essentially stuffy crime syndicates. The employees in the branches and even most of the corporate departments aren't doing anything wrong. They don't really know what the higher ups are up to. The higher ups, especially in a corporate culture that prizes maximization of profit over any and all other values, don't believe they are committing crimes. Tell them they're crooks and they get huffy and don't understand how you can believe such negative things; you must be some 60s radical leftover full of conspiracy theory. To them they just being smart business people.
Eventually enough people may come to grasp that they indeed self righteous doers of scan and that they are harming regular job holding people and setting things up for a global currency crash that's may at ant moment render all money -- even their ill gotten gains -- worthless as the paper and pixels they're stored one transferred amongst themselves via.,
Money had only the value those who deal in it attribute to it. It's faith based and if the faith falters, the system will end with the dissolve of money.
