In the News: “A University of Zurich study ‘proves’ that a small group of companies – mainly banks – wields huge power over the global economy. The study is the first to look at all 43,060 transnational corporations and the web of ownership between them – and created a ‘map’ of 1,318 companies at the heart of the global economy.
“The study found that 147 companies formed a ‘super entity’ within this, controlling 40 per cent of its wealth. All own part or all of one another. Most are banks – the top 20 includes Barclays and Goldman Sachs. But the close connections mean that the network could be vulnerable to collapse.
“The financial collapse of 2008 showed that such tightly-knit networks can be unstable.

“One thing won’t chime with some of the protesters’ claims: the super-entity is unlikely to be the intentional result of a conspiracy to rule the world. ‘Such structures are common in nature,’ says Sugihara.
“So, the super-entity may not result from conspiracy. The real question, says the Zurich team, is whether it can exert concerted political power. Driffill feels 147 is too many to sustain collusion. Braha suspects they will compete in the market but act together on common interests. Resisting changes to the network structure may be one such common interest.” (Source: NewScientist)
My Comment: The conclusion is surprising: Nobody rules the world, neither the Jews, nor the rich, nor governments—and this is correct. The world is ruled by Nature or the Creator, and we are unable to influence the program of the world’s development. Rather, we can determine the form in which the program will manifest in front of us: Whether it will be more or less friendly to us, whether we will move to our next mandatory state, the society of mutual guarantee, through the Nazi regimes, World War III, and the destruction of much of humanity, or straight to the society of mutual guarantee and reasonable consumption.
