The globalists are not that bright …

… not politically anyway.

This is a key point blogger/reader Wolfie at my place has been saying for years and Vox here says, via Chuckles:

I used to work out with a guy running a very large global corporation. And by large, I mean annual turnover measured in the billions. He disabused me of any notion that the central bankers were smart; after returning from one meeting with the Bank of England’s Court of Directors, he said something about hoping the directors were somebody’s puppets, because if those bozos were actually running anything, the global economy was doomed.

They have not the capacity to think as humans, in terms of the natural consequences of policies and actions.  But someone does, someone probably above them.

The core idea behind crime busting is to hit the principals – even to catch the 2ICs does not cut it – you need the real muvvers you never see.  The banksters, by and large, are marionettes.

    Central Bankers are civil servants, they usually have not been exposed to the rigorous employment requirements that commercial employees face.

    Who are the puppet-masters?
    And how do you know this?

      That’s the N1 issue.

        There is a void within every civil servant which anyone devious enough can climb into and occupy.

        In the end, it always comes back to https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Republic_(Plato)

        Too much power is concentrated in one group and we will not get peace until power is devolved once again.

    The problem is he didn’t understand the mindset. A civil servant does not think like someone in the free market. They just can’t. One has a fixed income which is backed by force. He has no risks, no time pressures and no customers who can go elsewhere.

    The businessman has all these pressures and more. He cannot explain things to the civil servant because they make no sense to him. I remember handing a cost/benefit report to a senior civil servant and he asked what it was for. ‘To make a buying decision’, I said. ‘Why?’ Was his response. ‘If we want it, we just get it.’

      A good way to offend that mindset of civil servants is to remind them that unlike private enterprise, they contribute nothing to tax revenue.
      This might trigger an angry and indignant response, but if their paymasters (the Treasury) give them £100 pay, and they pay £25 back in tax, the treasury is still £75 down.

      ie State employees, civil servants, policemen, teachers, politicians etc. all add nothing to the treasury but constantly drain it. Private enterprise fills it.

    Right.
