At the beginning of a new year it would be totally natural to forecast what the likely events and trends will be for 2017. A lot of experts around the world will predict a number of ‘new’ events as if a lot of things will change just because we are entering a new year.
But sadly, I will disappoint everyone and not change direction in any single area that I have been talking about for many years. Trends don’t change because we are in a new year. The principal long term trends take a long time to develop and even longer to reach a turning point.
The Alchemy or Black Magic started in 1913
What started with the creation of the Fed in December 1913, led to the biggest experiment in Alchemy that the world has ever experienced. Alchemy is the process of turning base metals to gold. But Alchemy also means a seemingly magical process of transformation and creation. Alchemy derives from Greek with a bit of Arabic (‘Al’) and simply means Black Magic.
And Black Magic or Alchemy is exactly what the bankers who met on Jekyll Island practised in order to set up the Federal Reserve Bank. This would be the central bank of the US that would be owned by private bankers and for the benefit of these bankers. This extremely clever and devious conspiracy followed the words of Mayer Amschel Rothschild who 100 years earlier had said: ‘Give me control of the nation’s money and I care not who makes its laws.’
