The group of Thirty
Quando si discutono i veri problemi della economia – quelli sommersi – vengono prese le decisioni dal gruppo dei Trenta, vero governo “ombra” dei problemi strettamente macroeconomici.
Naturalmente,le loro decisioni non possono che non riflettersi poi pesantemente sugli andamenti dei diversi asset finanziari .
Ecco il manifesto del gruppo, che esiste da più di un trentennio, per altro :
[…]The Group of Thirty, established in 1978, is a private, nonprofit, international body composed of very senior representatives of the private and public sectors and academia. It aims to deepen understanding of international economic and financial issues, to explore the international repercussions of decisions taken in the public and private sectors, and to examine the choices available to market practitioners and policymakers.
The Group’s members meet in plenary sessions twice a year with select guests to discuss important economic, financial and policy developments. They reach out to a wider audience in seminars and symposia. Of most importance to our membership and supporters is the annual International Banking Seminar.[…]

Tenete ben presente a mente questa lista e questi nomi, perchè tutti – ad esclusione di Volcker oramai membro onorario o quasi, sono coloro che decidono le sorti economiche del pianeta.
Il vero potere, rappresentato infatti dalla lobby finanziaria da cui dipendono le sorti del mondo.
Le decisioni dei vari stati e dei vari politici dipendono infatti strettamente da loro.
