Obama's Wall Street cabinet
6 April 2009
Tom Eley and Barry Grey

"A series of articles published over the weekend, based on financial
disclosure reports released by the Obama administration last Friday
concerning top White House officials, documents the extent to which the
administration, in both its personnel and policies, is a political
instrument of Wall Street.
...
Friday’s financial disclosures further expose the bankruptcy of American
democracy. Elections have no real effect on government policy, which is
determined by the interests of the financial aristocracy that dominates
both political parties. ..."

The Financial New World Order: Towards a Global Currency and World
Government

by Andrew G. Marshall

Global Research, April 6, 2009


Introduction 

            
Following the 2009 G20 summit, plans were announced for implementing the
creation of a new global currency to replace the US dollar’s role as the
world reserve currency. Point 19 of the communiqué released by the G20
at the end of the Summit stated, “We have agreed to support a general
SDR allocation which will inject $250bn (£170bn) into the world economy
and increase global liquidity.” SDRs, or Special Drawing Rights, are “a
synthetic paper currency issued by the International Monetary Fund.” As
the Telegraph reported, “the G20 leaders have activated the IMF's power
to create money and begin global "quantitative easing". In doing so,
they are putting a de facto world currency into play. It is outside the
control of any sovereign body. Conspiracy theorists will love it.”[1]
