The Few Banks that Own All

by on July 26, 2012
super-entity

In the autumn of  2011 an already legendary study by a number of Swiss scientists revealed that a small number of banks controlled a decisive stake in the globe’s economy. The idea that the banks are a cartel and that this cartel controls the economy is now a scientifically quantified matter of record.

By Anthony Migchels for Henry Makow and Real Currencies

The study, called ‘the Network of Global Corporate Control’ was done by Stefania Vitali, James B. Glattfelder, and Stefano Battiston, in Zurich, Switzerland. The method was datamining the Orbis Marketing Database 2007, with data on more than 30 million economic actors (companies and investors) worldwide, including asset positions.

The study was published in the New Scientist, a highly respected outlet of mainstream science.

The results were interesting, although basically predictable.

Massive centralization
It transpires that there are about 43,000 companies that are Transnational according to the OECD definition.

There is a top 1,318 of them that seem to be at the center of it all. This core group has three important characteristics.

1. Between them, they generated 20% of the world’s income.

2. They own each other.
The Orbis database clearly showed that most shares of these corporations were owned by other members of the group of 1,318. This means that the biggest, most profitable and influential corporations in the world all own each other and are basically one massive cartel, or even monopoly. They are competing only nominally. Competition is sin.

3. The core owns all the other biggest 43,000 Transnational corporations.
These companies generate another 60% of the entire world’s income. So not only is the top of the business world one major cartel, it controls or outright owns all of its lesser brethren, confirming the idea of one incredible monopoly owning the entire world.

Besides these three issues with the core of 1,318, there are two more shocking observations:

4. 80% of the total control was in the hands of an even smaller group of 737 corporations.

5. And last but not least: at the very top, only 147 corporations directly control 40% of the total wealth.

Conclusion
See the top 50 of this list below the article.

As you can see from that list, they are all banks or other financial institutions.

So no, it’s not a hyperbole to say the Banking System is One. We’re not overstating the case when we say it’s just one massive cartel. That the banks own everything, including all the major industries. Oil, Weapons, Pharmaceuticals, Food, Telecom and IT, etc. It’s all one massive monopoly. Controlled from the top down.

The Money Power is real and these Swiss gentlemen have done us a favor by crunching the numbers.

Questions remain. How do the CAFR’s of US Governmental pension funds and the like fit in this picture? How are the companies controlled if they all own each other?

However, the last few years we have seen conspiracy theory getting validated more and more everyday. People are still surprised, but that is only because they don’t understand human nature. People conspire to do just about everything. It would have been really surprising had there not been a conspiracy to rule the world.

    Zionism = (SOB) Site of Open Bank => Fire-wood table & soaking brick of burnt clay, a [box],
    ==chain=, a lock, a clock, a s’tamper & a P’add.
    Whats in Banks = ? banc # bench @ counters ++ tables x x , & a code * a mark U^P /on PaPer
    = The % charged by The Bank _!_
    On first sight it looks very complex, with vision IT$ BS (Bad-Sense)

    IT$ = MAD – NESS
    (Institutes Trust in Satan) (Mutually Assured Destruction) (Nocturnals Embrace Sion’ $ystem)

    1. A forgery for Evil mania by only a Satanic jinnius,
    – a lechery of money-lenders greed for the usurious is the Bank.
    2. Serviced by man’ager & promoted through media roles,
    – these shameless Pimps of IT$ system are the moles in the Bank.
    3. The foolish and the greedy dePosit their ill-wealth,
    – hiding a Pile from the needy for joining a stealth in the Bank.

  2. Reblogged this on Mushroom Tea Party and commented:
    Separate only in name, the top 1,318 companies in the world own each other, creating a consolidated front on the global economy.

  3. Interesting discussion but as always the more complex a set up the more likely it is to have weaknesses that can be exploited and in international businesses there are endless weaknesses in structure that can be manipulated.
    The disappointment is that there are too many greed driven people who will abuse the system.
    Much in business works on “good will” and if there are people who want to exploit and abuse and they are determined, then it happens. This will always happen.
    So in banking. When you gain the right to print money then you can do as you like and hire the very best of professional knowhow to exploit the “good will”. From there, exploit the weaknesses and manipulate and abuse all you want and pay for it with overprinted money. It is said that the FED has overprinted vast quantities of money and that trillions of these overprints cannot be traced?
    There is no end to this because individuals with psychiatric profiles control all this so call a holt to the whole thing and nationalise everything! Administer human affairs on a nationalised business model!

    • nationalizing won’t solve the problem you address Branko: the psychopaths gravitate to power, whether in private business or Government.

      We need decentralization of power and the end of systems that automatically centralize power, like Usury.

  4. So, which one of them groupies would dare to find out (or even just attempt to find out) who the shareholders of any of the below listed, State-chartered Federal Reserve members are ?

  5. correction, clarification:–

    In the United States there are ~7,700 banks, out of which ~2,900 (2,000 national banks, 900 state banks) are members of the Federal Reserve System.

  6. Reblogged this on Fellowship of the Minds.

    • Thanks Dr. Eowyn! Love your site!

  7. Only the lasy, the stupid, and the cock-sucker becomes Bill Still groupies and Ellen Brown idolizers;

    so, as usual, it reamains to yamaguchy incorporated –at whose service and disposal chairman Bernanke constantly (days and nights) is– to write and request some information (because I alone am brave & courageous; because I alone am allowed to receive such über-hidden secret data); and what response do I receive ?!:

    [and I quote]
    I checked and here is the information you requested. We have requested the list of the 121 state member banks and I will forward it to you as soon as we receive it.

    We currently have 121 state member banks in the 8th District. Those are the banks that we supervise. However, every national bank is also a Fed member institution.

    There are 98 national banks in our District. Those banks are supervised by the Comptroller of the Currency. I suspect that the question relates to state member banks, not all member banks.

    Each state member bank must hold Federal Reserve Bank stock in an amount equal to 3% of that bank’s capital stock and surplus accounts. So if a bank has $1 million in capital stock and surplus, it must hold $30 thousand in Federal Reserve Bank stock. Each share of Fed stock has par value of $100. So holding $30 thousand in Fed stock would equate to 300 shares.

    Fed stock records are maintained by our Accounting Department, with information regarding a bank’s capital accounts being publicly available, calculating how many shares of Fed stock are held is a pretty simple exercise.

    Hope this was of assistance,
    [end of quote]

    Now; which one of ye low life scum would dare to ask his favourite branch manager, where your account (without which ye bankbook heroes cannot exist) is, to please (pretty please) tell you how to find out who the top 20 shareholders of that bank are ??? …..(none; of course)

    every pension plan sends out a statement to its members, listing its holdings, this could also easily indicate if they hold more shares in banks than Rothschild……

    yes; compiling the data of 8,000 member banks would be a huge undertaking — that is another reason why book-peddlers and groupies would never go near it ….. (so, send another $20.00 to B.S. and let Larry leech give ye another hand-job)

    Hmmm

    OK so this article is stating for the record what many of us have know for literally decades. But what this article and its “sources” so studiously refuse to answer is who exactly are the largest stockholders in the top “50″. In other words to whom do we direct our attention?

    And before you suggest I just do the “research” consider this: When queried under the freedom of Information Act as to exactly who the primary stock holders in the 12 FED banks are they refused to answer citing national security. Of course the real reason they don’t answer is because Joe Six Pack would be rioting in the streets if he found out that the FED is owned by foreign interests. And further the FED has been actively serving those foreign interests often at the expense of the American people since its inception 100 years ago.

    • I don’t know who they are, although the Rothshilds and similar (mostly) Jewish families seem most pertinent candidates.

      However, I don’t think it’s about taking down people. They will just be replaced.

      We need real solutions to their systems. Most notably Usury.

      • as you very well know, the federal reserve system has 8,000 member banks, all publicly traded; sherholders are available for the asking; none of the monetary alternators would dare to look into actual records; pension funds would turn out to hold more shares than the Rothschild clan (not good for book-peddling business)

        • Well Name, that claim is certainly not supported by the datamining that these Swiss Gentlemen provided. However, in the article I do mention CAFR and the Pension Funds as unknowns in the above equation.

          You are more than welcome, as always, to provide the facts that your research unearths!

          • of ye leeches do not want to do any work of your own; ye just want to take the money and credit

        • DDearborn permalink

          Hmmm

          8000 member banks have public information available, well yes and no. As far as the 12 Federal Reserve Banks themselves are concerned the actual names of the majority stock holders are NOT available to the public. And bear in mind that none of the12 Federal Reserve Banks are publicly traded corporations and the SEC therefore does not require them to publish ownership information. This is of course outrageous and totally unacceptable given the power these banks have over every American.

          Now if you believe otherwise feel free to publish the names of the 5 largest stock holders of each of the 12 Federal Reserve Banks. Please do not list corporations or holding companies. Rather drill down further and list the largest 5 stock holders of any companies listed as 1 of the 5 largest stock holders in the Fed banks. Keep drilling down until you get to actual people. If You get the idea. The fact remains that this information is being kept from the public because it would clearly show that for 100 years foreigners have been controlling our country.

          • Bill Martin permalink

            Understand and don’t disagree. However, I suspect that if anyone tried that, they would end up in numerous blind alleys. First the entities would own each other. Then, if you got past that, you would end up in a maze of trusts and foundations.

    The Few Banks that Own All

    Corporate incest?

    • Many years ago I worked for an organisation which funnelled all Federal anti-poverty funds into Milwaukee County. It’s governing ‘board’ or Commission was composed of representatives of City and County government, local School Board, the voluntary sector, private sector and organised labour. Also represented, and comprising one third of the membership of the Commission, were representatives of neighbourhoods with high levels of deprivation, all of whom had been elected to Neighbourhood Councils. It was what in the UK would be called a quango (quasi non-governmental organisation).

      Someone did an analysis of the Commission representatives, particularly from the private and voluntary sectors. What they uncovered was a web of interlocking directorships among the major local banks and heavy industry which resembled the illustration accompanying this piece. Where the two examples differ is in the need for direct ownership to exercise control. Neither example, or model, excludes the other, rather they complement each other.

      • Good call, thanks!

    Hi,
    I admit my ignorance in advance regarding name789′s comment about William Still–what’s wrong with Still–is he a disinformationist? In what way? Any information and/or reading material you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

    • Hi vish,
      Bill is a good guy, doing what he can. I have some issues with his reform proposals (basically the Chicago Plan) and Name hates him because Still doesn’t immediately go public to repent for his many mistakes every time Name finds another one, hahahaha

    • B.S. is a two-bit scum-bag who saw an opportunity for easy money, by regurgitating what others have regurgitated before him
      B.S. never done any study, any research, he knows nothing of money, finances, history….. plagiary is the sum total of his ability
      people of low information and very low moral character idolize him and other book-peddlers

  14. Hey honey! I sent you an email and I am guessing you didn’t get it. Like the first one I sent. As in we may as well inform in the public spot that an email awaits. :). I’ll resend. Bet it goes through this time. Hope you are well!

  15. Interlocking directorates and industrial centralization in the United States in 1908:

    http://www.yamaguchy.com/library/lafollette/lf08mar17.html

    “But let me revert to the directorate of the National City Bank, remembering that there are twenty-three directors.
    Fourteen of the directors of the National City Bank are at the head of fourteen great combinations representing 38 per cent of the capitalization of all the industrial trusts of the country.
    These same twenty-three directors, through their various connections, represent more than 350 other banks, trust companies, railroads, and industrial corporations, with an aggregate capitalization of more than twelve thousand million dollars.”

      • and if you scroll to the bottom of the file (to “Story of the Panic”) you will notice the great paralell between the 1907 money panic and the 2008 money panic –in some cases not even the names have been changed

        • Oh my God…….

          “By their fruits ye shall know them !”

          I just recapitulated this truth to Ruud, who is explaining all is well in Banking Land.

          People are so completely dumbed down and desensitized, that even if they’re intelligent they don’t see. They don’t taste the bitterness of the fruit, enthralled as they are by ‘ideas’ and ‘logic’ and ‘systems’ and ‘proof’.

          These idiots parade before us as celeb New York/London A list society and all are only jealous at their outstanding success, not even realizing it is their own children that are being anally raped buy these fuckers.

          I think you have the same problem as Henry.

          “Vampire UK”. Just don’t mention the yoo whoos.

          • What makes you say Henry does not mention the Jews?

          • Has England sat there and waited for the jews to corrupt it and turn it into a terrorist nation ? Was Edward influenced by jews; was Elizabeth the first influence by jews to state sponsor Drake ? was it jews who influenced them to starve the Irish ? burn people inside church buildings ?

            British warfare against american insurgents during the war for independence:
            “the prisoners thrown into the flames and held down with pitch forks”
            “When night came fires were kindled and the remaining prisoners chased, naked, back and forth through the flames until they fell exhausted and were consumed”
            “Cherry Valley of New York, men, women, and children slaughtered, and the settlement wiped out of existence”
            was general Clinton a jew? did Rothschild tell the british government to do this?

            Thomas Jefferson on the war of 1812 and Satan’s british empire:
            “It has arrested the course of the most remarkable tide of prosperity any nation ever experienced, and has closed such prospects of future improvement as were never before in the view of any people. Farewell all hopes of extinguishing public debt ! farewell all visions of applying surpluses of revenue to the improvements of peace rather than the ravages of war. Our enemy has indeed the consolation of Satan on removing our first parents from Paradise”

      • thanks. I appreciate it.

      a treasure trove

    • Great dig 789. It is amazing that we think things are changing, while they basically remain the same. If the people did not suffer from historical amnesia, we could see right through the banking scam that has plagued every nation for centuries. They do the same dastardly deeds over and over again and lack creativity.

      As far as Lincoln’s Greenbacks, the darling of many “monetary reformers” they are greatly misunderstood and highly over-rated. When I hear people sing the Greenback accolades, I know that they are either disingenuous or ignorant on the subject. What is there to like about bearer notes that were repaid to Europeans with gold?

      Lincoln unleashed Secretary of the Treasury Hugh McCulloch on the nation to rape and pillage the American economy. Monetary reformers cite many bogus Lincoln quotes and hold him up as a hero while he is in actuality, a scoundrel.

      • well, it’s a good thing you knew at least, I had to be completely reeducated on the matter, going along with the silly Lincoln is a great Greenbacker of the People narrative.

        • Et tu, Anthony?

          Yup, me too… I fell for the greenback myth that I suspect was choreographed by the money power and regurgitated by many – most unwittingly.

          I’m sure you remember the “green-backers versus gold bugs” rift that was a good example of a false dichotomy whereby two flawed alternatives are offered as if logic guided the conclusion.

          BTW, here are a couple of Lincoln’s “monetary reform” quotes that look to be spurious:

          1) “The government should create, issue and circulate all the currency and credit needed to satisfy the spending power of the government and the buying power of consumers….. Money will cease to be the master and become the servant of humanity. Democracy will rise superior to the money power.”

          2) “If this mischievous financial policy, which has its origin in North America, shall become indurated down to a fixture, then that Government will furnish its own money without cost. It will
          pay off debts and be without debt… That country must be destroyed or it will destroy every monarchy on the globe.”

          In my personal research, and I should add that “name789″ helped a great deal, I have found that greenbacks were nothing more than a predecessor to the interest bearing debt money system that we see today – institutionalized by government. No doubt, the first batch was better but that was short lived and later batches ushered in the modern government bond system.

          Hard to believe but the terms of greenbacks were changed, after the issue, to steal from the people. Why would any entity in their right mind alter the terms of a contract to punish themselves?

          • Really!!!? Larry the leech Larkin did research?! When? where? You are still licking the balls of William Still; your rushing to the defence of Ellen Brown and her fake quote compilation is public record.
            You have the audacity to mention spurious-looking quotes ? the only thing you know about Lincoln and greenbacks is what I told you; and the only reason you know it because I told, not because you were researching anything
            Republicae wrote a good article on your character, and you are adding support to it.

            • lol!
              Larry is even thanking you for the input 789!

              we can’t be all as good as you are my friend, but I’m sure happy you take the time correct our uninitiated ways!

              • there is more to it than meets your eye….
                why can’t i post a response this morning ?

                • you had problems posting?

                  • attempted 3-times, no result

                    • it’s there now, it got spammed

                • or, at least, not to the Lincoln article

  16. Als je een statistiek maakt van kleine en grote bedrijven in een sector, krijgt je dan niet gewoon een Gausische verdeling of zo? (Ben zelf niet zo thuis in de statistiek.) M.a.w. de data op zich zegt niet veel, je moet ook nog aantonen dat die atypisch is, dat die afwijkt van de normale verdeling op basis van toeval.

    • de schrijvers van het rapport gaan uit van toeval. Ik niet.

      Maar wat relevant is, is het gegeven dat ze allemaal elkaar bezitten en dat het hoe dan ook een monolitisch kartel is.

  17. I suppose I always suspected ‘monopolisation’ to be the truth but thanks for verifying my ‘hunch’ The questions in my mind are, “Well, what can we do about it and who has the authority to break the alleged monopoly?” No one, not even the IMF or UN can do much as what these companies are doing is not strictly illegal as far as I know. Old-fashioned enterprise capitalism thrived in a competitive market What we seem to have here is quite another beast and one over which national governments seem to have no control at all. My point, made to a colleague, who kindly passed your blogsite to me is that the London financial market is just one player and yet I believed its reputation was such that it could skew the global market to its own advantage. I believed that was why LIBOR had some influence in the American banking world. I wonder, now, if Diamond lost his job because he decided to break ranks by ‘fiddling the books’ in favour of Barclay’s? I suppose I’ll never know the full story. Nor will anyone else outside the ‘magic circle’ ! Chris

    • Nah, people like Diamond are just executives. He’s not too high up in the ranks. Just an employee, like you and me. He thinks he’s great, because he can kick in the teeth of his fellow slaves and make millions of it, but he still is just one of many. People like him are pawns, easily sacrificed and replaced by the next stooge.

      these banks compete nominally and they will even try to eat each other’s lunch. Most of those involved never understand they all work for the same master. The Money Power doesn’t care: it organizes it’s new world order through conflict. Because of conflict people don’t see the oneness of it all and Satan reckons he’ll get the best servants when they slug it out in the survival of the fittest. The IMF, the UN, the EU, BIS etc are all owned by the same lot and not only cannot do anything, they don’t want to do anything. The EU is now barking at the bankers, but of course its own ECB is part of the whole thing also. By sacrificing some bankers here and there they look good before the bewildered masses. Ah! The EU comes to the rescue! the same EU that we need more of so we can pay more trillions to the same banks the EU is now ‘trying to get under congtrol’.

      What to do?

      Create our own interest free currencies, steadily and mercilessly disconnect more and more from their system. Tell people what’s going on but don’t throw pearls before swine because most people still want to believe.

      Take control of your own life and leave the rest to the One.

      All is well.

      A reckoning is coming.

        “The IMF, the UN, the EU, BIS etc are all owned by the same lot…”

        So, who are these people? There sure is a lot of speculation… Rothschilds, Rockefellers, etc… but can you show me the proof that these families REALLY rule the world? Please don’t quote the conspiracy theorists as proof…

        “He will let you know what your task is, if you care to listen.”

        Who’s “He”… Jesus? God? Buddha? David Icke?

        • the One.

          Conspiracies are hard to prove.

          But there is common sense, human nature and a wealth of circumstantial evidence.

          think of it this way: if you walk through the wilderness and in the foliage you hear a deep, thunderous, maniacal growl. Do you start looking for proof there might be a threat?

          Demanding proof in cases of human affairs is childish. You must go inside, weigh all the evidence, come to your own conclusions and set your own agenda.

          • Geert permalink

            “the One.”

            Ah… Keanu Reeves. Good choice. The Matrix is all around us. ;-)

            “Conspiracies are hard to prove.”

            They sure are. And that’s why the facts are so much more valuable than the theories. Unfortunately MOST “truthseekers” deem themselves much wiser or aware than the “sheeple” by parotting the same crap they’ve learned from the internet and fellow whackjobs, without ever questioning the content or the source. I’m pretty sure you’ve met some of them.

            Nice analogy though about the lurking monster. I’d say it sounds like our financial system and I stay as far away from that as I possibly can. :-)

            Anthony, I’m not trying to bust your balls or be childish. In the last few years I’ve read many books, seen boatloads of documentaries and presentations and talked to quite a few conspiracy theorists and “financial experts” of different kinds. And of course I weighed the evidence and set my agenda/needs accordingly. But you know what strikes me the most?: PEOPLE ARE FULL OF SHIT and their belief systems overwhelm their every thought. Most so-called experts can hardly agree on anything, even some fundamentals. (BTW, the same goes for the mainstream sciences). Critical thinking with an open mind is preached by many, but practiced by very few.

            To end on a positive note: I enjoy your blog and it makes me think. Don’t take the above personally!

            • I really appreciate this comment and go along with it 100%!

              “To end on a positive note: I enjoy your blog and it makes me think.”

              I’m really very happy that these modest pages do that for you Geert! Thanks much!

    the new Avatara is close ;thanks again Anthony do you know this author,Henry C K Liu?he has great books

    • Thanks Ron. No, I’ve not heard of Liu!

  19. The vast majority of people continue to “believe” that nation states still exist as sovereign democracies even though the evidence of a plutocracy is over-whelming. And, of course there is another couple of rungs atop the plutocracy which is the central banks and the pinnacle, the BIS (Bank of International Settlements).

    The U.S. is nothing more than a client state to the Federal Reserve which holds the local franchise. Four private banks collectively own just over 50% (controlling interest) of the Federal Reserve stock (Bank of America, JP Morgan Chase, Citigroup and Wachovia/Wells Fargo). And the top 10 banks, own over 68% of the stock. Basically, 10 “too big to fail” banks control the monetary policy of the United States and inexplicably, the Federal Reserve regulates its owners in a colossal conflict of interest.

    Above the Fed, is the BIS and not coincidentally, some of the same people who own the Fed also hold stake in the BIS. Spiegel reported that:

    “Formally registered as a stock corporation, it is recognized as an international organization and, therefore, is not subject to any jurisdiction other than international law.

    “It does not need to pay tax, and its members and employees enjoy extensive immunity. No other institution regulates the BIS, despite the fact that it manages about 4 percent of the world’s total currency reserves, or €217 trillion ($304 trillion), as well as 120 tons of gold…

    “Central bankers are not elected by the people but are appointed by their governments. Nevertheless, they wield power that exceeds that of many political leaders. Their decisions affect entire economies, and a single word from their lips is capable of moving financial markets. They set interest rates, thereby determining the cost of borrowing and the speed of global financial currents.”

    The banking cartel trumps the plutocracy establishing a global Usurocracy. We are victims of the greatest pyramid scheme in history through an interest bearing debt money system that cannot be sustained.

    The incredible part is that the vast majority of people cannot figure out the obvious. And worse, many will scoff if you try to explain it or rudely dismiss it as a “conspiracy theory.”

    • Enthralled by the ‘magnificent edifice of international finance’. It’s exasperating Larry. Thanks

  20. I wish i could share David wilcocks’ optimism. What he attributes to incompetance i believe to be happening according to a well made and executed plan. Order out of chaos is all i see wherever i look.

    Is it any wonder that the commerical and maritime law has replaced equity and common law courts around the world. Transnational corps are the new souvereign countries/govts. Guilty until proven innocent.

    • Yes, the people in that scene are a little too optimistic, I agree. His article was splendid though!

      And the fact is: they are in trouble. Most people don’t get it yet, even in the alt media the level of thinking is still quite low, basically pretty much inside the box. But slowly but surely people are starting to wake up to the banking cartel.

      • True enough. You can lead the sheeple to the scientific data but you can’t make them think about it rationally.

        If only the people could see them for the fiat paper tigers thery really are!
