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?

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.

Carney going to BOE? Carney denied any such rumors just this summer!

Another GOLDMAN appointment to yet another CB

How much longer before the global revolution starts? GOLDMAN is running the world and I HATE IT. This is beyond absurd. It's grotesque how people after people is being controlled by money printing paper pushing rats.

I guess this needs to be updated

Oh and yes. Mark Carney is a JEW.

Canada may have a 'Triple-A' rating, but it's got a Triple-F finance minister...Fiscal Failure Flaherty. They don't call him 'Deficit Jim' for nothing, a politican with a proven track record of missing obvious signs (2008), of backing one-trick ponies (resource extraction) and hiding public debt (when he was finance minister of Ontario). He's not qualified to run a Saturday night bingo game at the Legion.

Flaherty wasn't missing any obvious signs.  This game is being played all over the world.  Lie, obfuscate, deny and bullshit the populace long enough until you can outright bankrupt and control them.  Like Bernanke, Flaherty is not incompetent just deceitful.

God help the Brits. Carney has a speed dial to the FED. He won't make a move lest it upset the chairsatan. Canada by all rights should have jacked up interest rates years ago to stop our housing balloon, but didn't. Funny thing is that housing should start imploding about the same time Carney leaves.

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.'"
