The Goldman Takeover Is Complete: A Glimpse Inside The Bank Of England Where Mark Carney Is Now Presiding

Tyler Durden's picture


Back in April 2012 we first suggested - to loud jeers by the "pundits" who were convinced there is no chance in hell of it happening - that Goldman's take over of the world's central bank triumvirate: the NY Fed (Bill Dudley), the ECB (Mario Draghi) and the Bank of England, would soon be completed with Mark Carney taking over the world's oldest central bank located on Threadneedle street. Today, this process has concluded and we have photographic evidence.

Behold Goldman's Mark Carney attending his first BOE Monetary Policy briefing (don't miss Michael Cross, Head of Foreign Exchange, and Executive Director for Markets, of Fleecebook fame sitting on the lower left).

And the man himself:

Carney needs a few Imperial Storm Troopers flanking him, such as this..

My guess is there were stormtroopers, but the Propaganda Minestry edited them out of the public relations photos.

Nice flooring in the City of London Corporation.

I wonder how much the BIS paid for that Mussolini marble while the V-2’s were flying past that building.

Oops.. sorry for the crazy talk.

If Jim Sinclair is correct, and Goldman Sachs is merely the executing agent for the ESF, then it would seem, the empire has been forced to throw long.

Can someone tell me what, at the heart of it, is the difference between "a bank" and "a big building for storing money" is?

Simple, Flash. "A big building for storing money" actually stores money, where money is a finite resource of course. A "bank," on the other hand, is an ethereal entity that permeates the space-time continuum with an infinitely radiating supply of money that has absolutely no relation to the amount of stuff we dug out of the ground, farmed, made, or exchanged.

Banks don't store money. Banks create credit (bookkeeping entries) and lend it to borrowers. Any bank which just stores money is going out of business.

I'd assume you'd read up on fractional reserve banking.

There is no money in a bank, just a set of books (which today are in a computer housed in some off-site bunker).  That's why they make them look like Greek temples.  It's a sham.

"Only gold and silver are money, everything else [i.e., bank money] is credit" JP Morgan.

He should know.

I think this is a very good/thought provoking question to ask, because "money storage" is the original and appropriate role of a bank.  It should actually cost you a small fee to have the excess value of your productive labor stored in a protected place in exchange for official documents that you can trade.  

Full reserve banking is really the way forward if we want to stop dealing with this fucking absurdity.  This may potentially already be in the works.

I personally think "the next crash" may be in play to move this forward.

nice link. gives me hope that not all economists are worthless tools. unfortunately I don't think  the bankers will like the following component of the plan:

Third, allowing the government to issue

money directly at zero interest, rather than borrowing that same money from banks at interest, would lead to a reduction in the interest burden on government finances and to a dramatic reduction of (net) government debt, given that irredeemable government-issued

money represents equity in the commonwealth rather than debt

simply because the national debt is too profitable for banks.

It's very nice.  I believe it's been there a bit longer than Mussolini's day, though.

If you ever happen to be anywhere near the City of London while the Open House is on, the Bank of England (not BIS, or City of London Corp.) tour is well worth queueing for - and that's from someone who absolutely detests queues.

The world would be a much better place without these guys.  We don't even need to get rid of them but rather have some monetary competition as Ron Paul has mentioned.  That fact that that isn't allowed is all you really need to know about their intentions.

One more time, folks, Carney = Group of Thirty

Dudley = Group of Thirty

Draghi = Group of Thirty

Group of Thirty, established by the Rockefeller Foundation in 1978 to speak and work on behalf of the speculators/central banksters.

Used same business address and fax number as the Bretton Woods Committee, the lobbyist group for the international super-rich.

Any questions? ? ?

But it's definitely "the world's oldest central bank located on Threadneedle street". In fact, I'm pretty sure it's the only central bank on Threadneedle street.

Pretty much any country without a buffalo wild wings is starting to reach it's breaking point.

Anyone on here have kids in college? I visited a buddy once at the University of Delaware. We were at a bar and the ABC (alcohol and beverage control) people came in. They were kind of nice, checking id's and tossing any underage kids out. Pretty orderly. I guess times change.

Actually it dies with rabbit licences.

'My USDA rabbit license requirement has taken another ridiculous twist. I just received an 8 page letter from the USDA, telling me that by July 29 I need to have in place a written disaster plan, detailing all the steps I would take to help get my rabbit through a disaster, such as a tornado, fire, flood, etc. They not only want to know how I will protect my rabbit during a disaster, but also what I will do after the disaster, to make sure my rabbit gets cared for properly.  I am not kidding–before the end of July I need to have this written rabbit disaster plan in place, or I am breaking the law.'

Mon, 07/01/2013 - 10:22 | 3709919 WHATDIFFERENCED...

Is a disaster expected after July 29th? Even a college thesis has more time than this. Someone has way to much time of their hands.

Then honor its life.

Subtlety was never a strong point for megalomaniacs. The squids goal is so open and blatant, it's almost surreal. 

With the cons in power, it won't be long before the cream of British assets are sold for pennies to the multinationals and cronies waiting in the wings. I'm British - a debt slave to GS and cheerful clapper to American foreign policies. It's a fucking disgrace.

I see it clearly now. The Banksters literally waged war against sovereign nations. In the US they put Eric Holder and Barack Obama in office to help them takeover and destroy the United States of America.

Where the hell is the US Military to attack this foreign enemy that is in an ongoing physical invasion and attack against the US.

What the fuck is going on?

"Where the hell is the US Military to attack this foreign enemy that is in an ongoing physical invasion and attack against the US."

The military is where it always was, waiting for marching orders from the people who run it and pay its bills. I think you mentioned them - "this foreign enemy".

Who upvoted such sheer idiocy?

Also note the sign that says "FERGAL SHORTALL", right next to Mike Cross'. If Mr. Shortall has been true to his name last month, it should have been very profitable for him.

It's funny, because I was thinking for some time what the ultimate bubble before hyperinflation would be and therefore what bubble the central banks must be preparing for. I think the last bubble will be a bubble in paper currencies, which would manifest itself in hoarding cash and shorting all asset classes.
