World Bank Insider Blows Whistle on Corruption, Federal Reserve
Alex Newman, www.thenewamerican.com | May 22, 2013
A former insider at the World Bank, ex-Senior Counsel Karen Hudes, says the global financial system is dominated by a small group of corrupt, power-hungry figures centered around the privately owned U.S. Federal Reserve. . . .
Citing an explosive 2011 Swiss study published in the PLOS ONE journal on the “network of global corporate control,” Hudes pointed out that a small group of entities — mostly financial institutions and especially central banks — exert a massive amount of influence over the international economy from behind the scenes. “What is really going on is that the world’s resources are being dominated by this group,” she explained, adding that the “corrupt power grabbers” have managed to dominate the media as well. . . .
The shadowy but immensely powerful Bank for International Settlements serves as “the club of these private central bankers,” Hudes continued. . . .

- Article refers to this statement by Carroll Quigley:
“In addition to these pragmatic goals, the powers of financial capitalism had another far-reaching aim, nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole. This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert, by secret agreements arrived at in frequent private meetings and conferences. The apex of the system was to be the Bank for International Settlements in Basle [Basel], Switzerland, a private bank owned and controlled by the world’s central banks which were themselves private corporations.” – Carroll Quigley, Tragedy and Hope, 1966
