This is an interesting talk the former head of the world bank gave to a class of up and coming technocrats at stanford. But he fudged the reality of the situation. First off, he speaks of all these seismic events as if they’re beyond human control, as if they weren’t decades in planning at the highest levels of the financial establishment, starting in the 1970’s:
“The 1979 visit of Deng Xiaoping to the US was followed in June 1980 by the equally significant encounter in Wall Street of Rong Yiren, chairman of CITIC, and David Rockefeller. The meeting, held in the penthouse of the Chase Manhattan Bank complex, was attended by senior executives of close to 300 major US corporations. A major agreement was reached between Chase, CITIC, and the Bank of China, involving the exchange of specialists and technical personnel to ‘identify and define those areas of the Chinese economy most susceptible to American technology and capital infusion’.”

The planned implosion of the US economy http://thoughtcrimeradio.net/2014/03/reprise-bernanke-admits-fed-caused-great-depression/ and the ongoing deliberate destruction of the dollar via “our” kamikaze monetary and foreign policies are serving to kick the last stilt out from under the american middle class. This is not rocket science, and it’s not an accident. Trillions of dollars have already been made, with the promise of trillions more down the road. No one begrudges china’s and india’s success, but it didn’t have to come at our expense. The problem the banksters have with us is that we’ve become a major inconvenience, as we demonstrated during the ’60s. When the newly anointed peoples also begin to question the established order, they will meet the same fate. But there’s plenty of looting and havoc to wreak in the meantime.
Contrary to his deceptions, there’s no way the west will be allowed to have a middle class making 100K/year. For one thing, we know too much about the central and non-central banking scams. Furthermore, the malthusians among the elite won’t tolerate our large ecological footprint. Finally, our entrenched expectation of living in something resembling a democracy is completely incompatible with the oligarchs’ agenda. But mainly they just don’t need us any more. We’re not just expendable, we’re dangerous.
Clearly, the american middle class is to be brought to heel. This is what he couldn’t bring himself to say. But the evidence is all around us in the militarization of the police, the domestic focus of the military and the wholesale surveillance of the citizenry, all under the excuse of the 9/11 fraud but predating it by several years in any case: http://thoughtcrimeradio.net/?s=before+9%2F11 https://groups.google.com/forum/#!msg/misc.activism.progressive/hFt9uzBfyls/XEhTB1pXQjMJ
