Goldman's Global Domination Is Now Complete As Its Mark Carney Takes Over Bank Of England

Tyler Durden's picture


Back on July 3, we made an explicit and very simple prediction: "now that the natural succession path at the BOE has been terminally derailed, it brings up those two other gentlemen already brought up previously as potential future heads of the BOE, both of whom just happened to work, or still do, at... Goldman Sachs:  Canada's Mark Carney or Goldman's Jim O'Neil. Granted both have denied press speculation they will replace Mervyn King, but it's not like it would be the first time a banker lied to anyone now, would it (and makes one wonder if this whole affair was not merely orchestrated by the Squid from the get go... but no, that would be a 'conspiracy theory'.)"

A few weeks later, in "On The Path To Global Goldmanation: Former Goldmanite Mark Carney To Head The BOE After All?" we added:

Granted both have denied press speculation they will replace Mervyn King, but it's not like it would be the first time a banker lied to anyone now, would it (and makes one wonder if this whole affair was not merely orchestrated by the Squid from the get go... but no, that would be a 'conspiracy theory'.)" We wonder if this speculation can be upgraded from conspiracy theory to conspiracy fact, now that Bloomberg itself has written a major article discussing just this suddenly very likely outcome.


From Bloomberg:


Carney Leading Bank of England Seen as Scandal Remedy



London is losing so much trust as the global financial center that Prime Minister David Cameron may need to consider an unprecedented choice for Bank of England governor: Mark Carney, the Canadian who polices the world’s financial system and has no ties to the bailouts or rigged markets tainting Labour and Conservative governments alike.


The 47-year-old Carney, who received his masters and PhD degrees from Oxford University, is no stranger to the City of London after working there with Goldman Sachs Group Inc. Now serving as governor of the Bank of Canada and the head of the Financial Stability Board, he is unscathed by the fallout from the 2008 financial crisis.


“Mark Carney is one of the brightest, most capable people I’ve ever met in global finance and central banking,” said Tim Adams, a former U.S. Treasury undersecretary who worked with Carney at Group of Seven meetings. “I’ve been around these circles a long time and he’s smart, politically savvy, a good manager and has an outstanding track record. It’s tough to find all those elements in a single person.”


Domestic candidates for the job include Gus O’Donnell, former head of the U.K. civil service, Financial Services Authority Chairman Adair Turner and Bank of England Deputy Governor Paul Tucker, a three-decade veteran at the bank.

There is one problem regarding the domestic candidates: none of them have Goldman on their resume, something which sets not only Mark Carney, but also Bill Dudley and Mario Draghi apart.

As for the punchline:


“Why not get a head that’s global? Bankers aren’t very popular, and a Canadian sounds like a good choice,” said Kent Matthews, a professor at Cardiff University and former Bank of England researcher. “It may well be that to restore credibility they have to look outside.”


So that's the strategy: play Carney off as a Canadian, instead of as Goldman. We wonder how many minutes the general public will be fooled by that particular strawman.

* * *

We are, once again, 100% correct, and have beaten all the bookie odds which had Tucker as a favorite and Mark Carney as a long odds outsider. Pity: all one needs to realize and remember how the events in the world play out is to remember one simple thing: GOLDMAN SACHS RUNS IT. Everything else is secondary.

As we expected months ago, it has just been confirmed.


And as we showed back on July 26...

Europe before:

and After:

Finally, our conclusion from that article, which today merely encapsulated:

  • Because with money printing squids like these, who needs sovereign states?

Investopedia explains 'Matt Taibbi'

Taibbi wrote a controversial article, published in Rolling Stone, in July 2009 claiming that Goldman-Sachs had engineered all of the major market manipulations since the Great Depression. He famously described Goldman Sachs as a "great vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity, relentlessly jamming its blood funnel into anything that smells like money."

goldman is the modern era catholic church and wall st is  the Vatican...doing the "work of god"


goldman partners in senior government policy positions are bishops meddling in running or ruining a country.


advisors to kings and presidents to go to war against each other over debt collection instead of in the name of christ. Crusade versus military "liberation".


Cathedrals used to be the largest building in town, now it is the banks who has the higest high rises in the city center.


People used to be kept in line by telling them that they will go to heaven one day. People are now controlled with promises that they will be rich one day. Heaven on earth before you die. You can get there if you work hard enough and stay out of trouble they say. instead of 10% tithe, 5% in interest payments to the bank + 5% inflation tax.


but the age of reformation is near as corruption and abuse of power is exposed within. as rome burns, empire divides. internal chaos while new world is developing in asia and internet.


freedom of religion replaced by freedom of currency.


central bankers will exist as masses still follow the pope. but responsible citizens will be allowed to move on beyond the control of church being the morality police and banks being productivity police.


who will build the largest buildings next? entertainers and atheletes with their own stadiums?

in small towns there always is:

  1. church/temple (morality police)
  2. sheriff (property crime rule)
  3. mayor (law police...pre crime rule)
  4. school (thought police)
  5. bank (productivity police)
  6. bar/ entertainment (fun police)
  7. worker slaves to pay taxes for supporting the above

and one richest guy who uses above to keep the status quo.

From this asshole's wikipedia page:



...was involved in Goldman's work with the 1998 Russian financial crisis.[4]

Goldman's role in the Russian crisis was criticized at the time because while the company was advising Russia it was simultaneously betting against the country's ability to repay its debt

There's a shocker - but why do they call it "betting"? That's not betting. When you know the outcome in advance, then it's a sure thing. It's also incredibly illegal, but hey, when you control all primary CBs you can pretty much piss in any pool of your liking.

Note that the non-Goldman, -  but U of Chicago-trained - Shirakawa is fighting to keep the Bank of Japan "independent" from the inept Japanese government.  This would seem to be a fight that all central banks would get behind as the nationalization of the BoJ might set a precedent for other nations' politicians who are not happy with the performance of their banks.  How many Goldman/Japanese are in position there to take over for Shirakawa?

Japan is already precedent. The have had how many PMs in the last decade? There would appear to be a correlation between the government flip flopping and US security concerns in the region. Take a look back at the SK patrol boat sinking and the demise of the Japan gov't over non other than Okinawa protests. Dig into the TPP and prying open Japan's Ag market. Japan continues to get played like a fiddle in the $IMF complex.

There would appear to be a correlation between Japan's revolving door PM situation and America's meddling in Japan/Asian affairs.  Hatoyama and the Okinawa issue is a classic example.  Another bone of contention for Japanese is the nuclear issue after Fukushima.  But it was none other than Obama who told Noda to delete any plan for reducing Japan's dependence on nuclear power from his energy plan.

The TPP is less about free trade and more about setting up a regional bureaucracy controlled by the US and global corporations.  Japan would be much better off signing targeted free trade pacts with China and South Korea than getting further in bed with America.

As for regional security concerns, the US has too many conflicts of interests with China to do anything about it except continue to extort and fear-monger the Japanese people into excepting America's largest peacetime military deployment for a 68th consecutive year during which time it has never mobilized to defend Japan.

Japan has a lot of problems with its government, not the least of which is America's involvement in it.

God help the Brits? Your statement implies that something has changed.

BOE/Fed love affair has been ongoing since the day the Fed was born, as it's the the child of the BOE (along with most (if not all) other central banks).

Jaime Dimon's Fight with Mark Carney over Capital Requirements

Or is the other extreme possible? Are we being too timid? Consider the jaded attitudes of the bank CEO who recounted: "My daughter called me from school one day, and said, 'Dad, what's a financial crisis?' And, without trying to be funny, I said, 'This type of thing happens every five to seven years.'"

Mark Carney, the guy who is over-seeing a ruthless purge against small financial entities (securities brokers, fund managers, etc.) that are 'shadow banks', a term he recently used that would be laughable for its monumental irony and hypocrisy if it wasn't so harmful to investment innovation and investor choice. He won't be happy until investors have absolutely no choice but to deal with a Monster Bank or other pet entity. He has basically ordered the Ontario Securities Commission to kill anything that doesn't fit 'the model', which is basically the same rules that a motorcycle gang employs. The OSC has even put off implementing a 'plea bargain mechanism' until the job is done...plea bargains are for big boys only, not small players trying to hammer out a living.

If you're planning on setting up shop in Ontario, Canada's largest securities market, think's being run by a total nest of vipers.

"historically significant word"

President Andrew Jackson, who survived assassination attempts to "kill the bank" said to them:

"Gentlemen! I too have been a close observer of the doings of the Bank of the United States. I have had men watching you for a long time, and am convinced that you have used the funds of the bank to speculate in the breadstuffs of the country. When you won, you divided the profits amongst you, and when you lost, you charged it to the bank. You tell me that if I take the deposits from the bank and annul its charter I shall ruin ten thousand families. That may be true, gentlemen, but that is your sin! Should I let you go on, you will ruin fifty thousand families, and that would be my sin! You are a den of vipers and thieves. I have determined to rout you out, and by the Eternal, (bringing his fist down on the table) I will rout you out!"

From the original minutes of the Philadelphia committee of citizens sent to meet with President Jackson (February 1834), according to Andrew Jackson and the Bank of the United States (1928) by Stan V. Henkels

$1m is bugger all compared to an American or British bank CEO. The BOE paid out bonuses in August 2011 of "up to £30000" per executive (yes, just £30K). Mervyn King's package has a much better pension plan so the difference is smaller than it appears by just comparing salary.

Declaration: I hate all TBTF bankers, including this one.
