NWO - Global Governance how would it look to see nufffs new video.i couldnt wait longer.lol. subscribe to his channel A full transcript of the speech was also carried by the Bank for International Settlements, an international organization of central banks that has constantly lobbied for a centralized global currency to replace that of nation states. Trichet praises the BIS as being ahead of the curve in dealing with the financial crisis during the speech. The primary outfit that will boss the institutions of global governance, according to Trichet, is the Global Economy Meeting (GEM), which regularly meets at the BIS headquarters in Basel. This group, states Trichet, has become the prime group for global governance among central banks. The GEM is basically a policy steering committee under the umbrella of the Bank for International Settlements. The BIS is a branch of the of the Bretton-Woods International Financial architecture and closely allied with the Bilderberg Group. It is controlled by an inner elite that represents all the worlds major central banking institutions. John Maynard Keynes, perhaps the most influential economist of all time, wanted it closed down as it was used to launder money for the ***s during World War II. Financial website Investors Insight describe the BIS as the most powerful bank youve never heard of, labeling it the most powerful financial institution on earth. The bank wields power through its control of vast amounts of global currencies. The BIS ...
The Magdalene Laundries UPDATE: Ireland's Commission to Inquire into Child Abuse has released a damming report on abuse in reformatories (these 'schools' were also tax-supported), including Magdelene Laundries, run by the Catholic Church in Ireland. The report found abuse was edemic and spread throughout all of the institutions. Victims of the abuse have been lobbying for an investigation for many years, and although the report is detailed the names of abusers are missing from it. To read the Inquiry's report follow this link: www.childabusecommission.ie Magdalene Asylums were institutions for so-called "fallen" women, most of them operated by different orders of the Roman Catholic Church. In most asylums, the inmates were required to undertake hard physical labour such as laundry work. In Ireland, such asylums were known as Magdalene Laundries. It has been estimated that 30000 women were admitted during the 150-year history of these institutions, often against their will. The last Magdalene Asylum in Ireland closed on September 25, 1996.

4. Portfolio Diversification and Supporting Financial Institutions (CAPM Model) Financial Markets (ECON 252) Portfolio diversification is the most fundamental concept of risk management. The allocation of financial resources in stocks, bonds, riskless, assets, oil and other assets determine the expected return and risk of a portfolio. Taking account of covariances and expected returns, investors can create a diversified portfolio that maximizes expected return for a given level of risk. An important mission of financial institutions is to provide portfolio-diversification services.

Chase Credit Card Ripoff Scam (part 2) In this second installment, I continue my discussion about how corrupt financial institutions like Chase Bank need to be boycotted. I also recommend not using Visa and Mastercard checking cards, even when the money exists in your checking account. Even though this doesn't incur interest on you, the merchant has to pay anywhere from 2-4 percent to that financial institution. Mom & pop stores are up to their eyeballs in this financial crap, and every time I go to a diner or low-cost store, I use cash or check, as well as reusable shopping bags. But the main thing is to put a monkey wrench is this creepy financial system we have all become so accustomed to accepting. Please make 2009 the year of paying down debt and saying "screw you" to these parasitic institutions. And if you must default on just one credit card, let it be your Chase Card. After all, they have no compassion on you, right? You're just returning the favor. Please feel free to leave your comments and do as much research as you can on this subject.

The Power of Paper One of the most common ways government and corporate institutions rob, cheat and control us is with something called "default contracts". Through our "silence" they presume authority to own us, our property, our wealth and our privacy. Sadly, our courts and statutes actually support this due to some odd contents of the Uniform Commercial Code. This video demonstrates one way to remedy those unintended "obligations." Learn more about this by going to and entering the search phrase "How to write an affidavit." Freedom-oriented videos on YouTube tend to attract a lot of anonymous institutional and government "boiler room" impostors, disruptors and agitators. These sponsored social network terrorists use hate speech, profanity, racism, name-calling and contrived insults to destroy and marginalize intellectual discussions about freedom on social networks. Who would be opposed to individual empowerment and freedom? The institutions who take and thrive on the earnings and productivity of private individuals and taxpayers. Those institutions are also the ones with the resources to conduct those boiler room operations. For that reason comments on this video are screened. Those who would call that "censorship" are welcome to create their own YouTube pages and be as un"censored" as they wish. This video was not produced by legal experts or professional advisers. It is layman's opinion intended only to provoke thought. Use these principals at your own risk.
Forgotten Lives: Bernard Bernard Carabello pioneered the deinstitutionalization movement in the 1970s with Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Geraldo Rivera. As a former resident of New York State's Willowbrook Institution -- the largest institution for people with developmental disabilities and mental retardation at that time -- Bernard snuck Geraldo into the back gates to create the expose that would later cause Willowbrook's closure, along with a massive wave of institution closures throughout the nation. Hear his story.
Lori and Reba Schappell - Conjoined Twins Lori and George Schappell, born September 18, 1961 in Reading, Pennsylvania, are American entertainers. George Schapell was born Dori Schapell, and was known for several years as Reba Schapell. Born as Lori and Dori Schappell, the sisters are craniopagus conjoined twins, joined at the head and sharing 30% of their brain matter, but having very different personalities and living, insofar as possible, individual lives. As a mark of individuality, and disliking the fact that their names rhymed, Dori changed her name to Reba. By 2007 she was preferring to be known as George. Lori and George spent the first twenty-four years of their lives living in an institution in Reading in which the majority of inmates suffered severe intellectual disability. Although neither is intellectually disabled, George's condition required special care. A court decision was made that their parents would be unable to care for them properly and they were removed and institutionalized. In the 1960s there were few hospital institutions for those people who had special needs that were unusual. In order that they might be placed in the institution, they were diagnosed as suffering from intellectual disability. When they reached adulthood, George, with the help of Ginny Thornburgh, wife of a former Governor of Pennsylvania, fought to have this diagnosis overturned and Lori and George were able to go to college.

The Federal Reserve "If the American people ever allow private banks to control the issuance of their currency, first by inflation and then by deflation, the banks and corporations that will grow up around them will deprive the people of all their property until their children will wake up homeless on the continent their fathers conquered." ~ Thomas Jefferson Excerpts from Rep. Louis T. McFadden's speech on the floor of the House of Representatives, June 10, 1932: Mr. Chairman, we have in this country one of the most corrupt institutions the world has ever known. I refer to the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal reserve banks. The Federal Reserve Board, a Government board, has cheated the Government of the United States and the people of the United States out of enough money to pay the national debt. The depredations and the iniquities of the Federal Reserve Board and the Federal Reserve banks acting together have cost this country enough money to pay the national debt several times over. ... Some people think the Federal reserve banks are United States Government institutions. They are not Government institutions. They are private credit monopolies which prey upon the people of the United States for the benefit of themselves and their foreign customers, foreign and domestic speculators and swindlers, and rich and predatory money lenders. ... Those 12 private credit monopolies were deceitfully and disloyally foisted upon this country by bankers who came here from Europe and who repaid us ...
5. Insurance: The Archetypal Risk Management Institution Financial Markets (ECON 252) Insurance provides significant risk management to a broad public, and is an essential tool for promoting human welfare. By pooling large numbers of independent or low-correlated risks, insurance providers can minimize overall risk. The risk management is tailored to individual circumstances and reflects centuries of insurance industry experience with real risks and with moral hazard and selection bias issues. Probability theory and statistical tools help to explain how insurance companies use risk pooling to minimize overall risk. Innovation and government regulation have played important roles in the formation and oversight of insurance institutions.

Time for Change (Bregtje van der Haak, VPRO Backlight 2010) Meet the new revolutionaries of the Do-It-Yourself cultures in Barcelona, Tallin and Jakarta. They are modern day heroes. They do not wait for political parties or institutions to change their world; they simply do it themselves, by creating new local currencies, by working in social networks or by simply robbing the banks and redistributing their money. The world economy is in crisis and public trust in financial institutions has hit rock bottom. As commercial banks were bailed out with billions of taxpayers money and continued to practice their old vices, many people lost faith in bank managers and politicians. They got angry at the speculative financial system that brings extreme wealth to a few and instability and unemployment to many. Could this dissatisfaction lead to social change? Can we imagine viable alternatives? Backlight goes on a worldwide search, with sociologist Manuel Castells and philosopher Peter Sloterdijk.

Catholic Church Institutions: Magdalene Sisters Part 1 The Magdalene Sisters: Eye-awakening 2002 Film of despicable religious corruption The Magdalene Sisters is a Peter Mullan 2002 film about ***age girls who were sent to Magdalene Asylums (aka 'Magdalen Laundries'): homes for women who were labeled as "fallen" by their families or society (though the film itself questions this). The homes were maintained by individual religious orders in the Roman Catholic Church in Ireland. Mullan remarked that the film was initially made because victims of Magdalene Asylums had received no closure in the form of recognition, compensation, or apology, and many remained lifelong devout Catholics.  Former Magdalen inmate Mary-Jo McDonagh told Mullan that the reality of the Magdalene Asylums was much worse than depicted in the film.  In May, 2009, an Irish government Commission to Inquire into Child Abuse released a 2000 page report detailing thousands of cases of often horrific abuse in many schools, although the scope of the investigation excluded the Magdalene Asylums. Throughout the film, each woman suffers unspeakable cruelty and violence from the fictional Mother Superior who is sadistic and almost inhuman at times. The film also criticizes the hypocrisy and corruption within the staff of the laundries, but it also intimates at the natures of the relationship between church and state in post-colonial Ireland. The Mother Superior relishes the money the business receives and it is suggested that little of it is distributed ...
Douglas North - Effect of Institutions on Market Performance at FCC Effect of Institutions on Market Performance Douglas North, Nobel Laureate, Washington University June 30, 2003 In this 70 minute lecture, Dr. North talks about institutions and economic development. He focuses on two issues. One is what prevents economies from working well and the other is what can we do about it. He begins with Neoclassical economics, the theory we use to understand the problems. He observes that its objective was to explain efficient resource allocation in developed economies and, thus, was never intended to deal with the issues of economic development. He argues that, when we try to Neoclassical theory to development issues, we find that it has two serious problems: first, it mistakenly assumes the economy is frictionless and, second, it incorrectly assumes the economy is timeless (ie, static rather than dynamic). Dr. North then talks about how government should deal with those two problems. He notes that Neo-classical economists have gone into countries and said that all you have to do is get the prices right and everything works, but they have fallen flat on their faces over and over again. What is needed, he says, is to know enough about the background and cultural heritage of a society so you have some feeling for the interplay between the formal rules and the informal norms and the way they work. That is, we must understand the countrys institutions which are the incentive systems that structure human interaction and reduce uncertainty. What is ...
Thomas Sowell -- Dismantling America Thomas Sowell has studied and taught economics, intellectual history, and social policy at institutions that include Cornell University, UCLA, and Amherst College. Now a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution, Sowell has published more than a dozen books, the latest of which is Dismantling America. In introducing his new book, Sowell asserts that the Obama administration "is the embodiment, the personification, and the culmination of dangerous trends that began decades ago," trends that are "dismantling America." Sowell sees this in the dismantling of marriage, of culture, and of self-government.
Financial Institutions Caused this Crisis Says Wells Fargo's Kovacevich The current financial crisis was caused by financial institutions themselves, not by their customers, Richard Kovacevich, MBA 67, chairman of Wells Fargo, told a Stanford audience.

13. Banking: Successes and Failures Financial Markets (ECON 252) Banks, which were first created in primitive form by goldsmiths hundreds of years ago, have evolved into central economic institutions that manage the allocation of resources, channel information about productive activities, and offer the public convenient investment vehicles. Although there are several types of banking institutions, including credit unions and Saving and Loan Associations, commercial banks are the largest and most important in the banking system. Banks are designed to address three significant problems in capital markets: adverse selection, moral hazard, and liquidity. Banks make money by borrowing long and lending short and use fractional reserves to lend more funds than are deposited. History has seen numerous problems in banks, including bank runs and insolvency. Government support and regulation, such as those implemented via the Basel Accord, as well as rating agencies help to ensure that investors trust the banks with which they have relations.

Vivaldi's Women (Part one) The documentary "Vivaldi's Women" on BBC Four presented the story of an extraordinary creative partnership between one of history's great composers -- Antonio Vivaldi -- and an all-female orchestra and choir. In the early 18th century, Father Antonio Vivaldi was a violin teacher, musical director, musical instrument procurer and in-house composer for a Venetian institution called La Pietà, a home for children who had been abandoned at birth. The institution had its own all-female orchestra and choir who provided sacred "entertainment" in the church for the visiting "Grand Tourists". The unique creative relationship that Vivaldi formed with these women resulted in what many believe to be one of the finest performing groups of all time. The documentary also reveals the personal stories of this unique community of female musicians and the full extent of Vivaldi's relationship with the institution. During five days in November 2005 Schola Pietatis Antonio Vivaldi, directed by Richard Vendome, recorded and filmed three different programmes for the BBC on location at La Pietà. The choir of 18 past and present members of Oxford Girls' Choir (aged 14-33), together with seven older ladies, replicated Vivaldi's choir in size, age and vocal range, the lowest voices can singing down to bottom F on the bass stave! Antonio Vivaldi, as well as being a composer, worked at the Ospedale della Pietà for much of the first half of the 18th century. This was one of four such institutions in ...

AMU Tarana Video Modelled on the University of Cambridge, AMU was among the first institutions of higher learning set up during the British Raj. Originally it was Mohammedan Anglo-Oriental College, which was founded by a great Muslim social reformer Sir Syed Ahmed Khan. The University has a campus spread over 467.6 hectares of land. Aligarh Muslim University is a residential academic institution offering more than 280 Courses in traditional and modern branches of Education. Currently the University has almost thirty thousand students, and over two thousand faculty members with over eighty departments of study. It continues to function as a premiere educational institution in India, and draws students from a number of countries, especially countries in Africa, West Asia and South East Asia. Majaz Lakhnawi was a romantic revolutionary poet of who composed the famous anthem (tarana) of Aligarh Muslim University. When Pandit Jawahar Lal Nehru visited Aligarh Muslim University, he enquired the students and authorities about their college song or something like it. Having got no concrete answer, he expressed his surprise by saying, "It is very strange that a prestigious university as AMU doesn't have its own college song. " These remarks put a student to unrest and he spent a restless night on this idea. The very next morning, he was ready with a masterpiece which went on to be reckoned as AMU Tarana after being sung at the Strachey Hall for the first time. What a tribute from a disciple to his ...
