Empire, Power & People with Andrew Gavin Marshall- Episode 138

The Institutions of Global Governance

This episode attempts to provide a brief overview of some of the key institutions of global financial governance, specifically (though not exclusively) as it relates to Europe's debt crisis. Included in the discussion is not simply the names of the institutions, but their roles, their leadership and internal governance structures, meetings and interactions. Among these many institutions are the European Central Bank, Bank for International Settlements, IMF, the International Monetary and Financial Committee (IMFC), the Group of 20, European Commission, OECD, European Council, the Troika, Eurogroup, Institute of International Finance, Group of 30, World Economic Forum, International Monetary Conference (IMC), Bilderberg and the Trilateral Commission, among others. This is a world of financial diplomacy through 'dark secret meetings' in off-the-record discussions and behind the scenes maneuvering. This is the world of Global Financial Governance.

    Started listening to your podcast and noted that you were mapping out relationships among the financial institutions involved in the Eurozone. May I suggest a tool that I have and that other researchers ( notably. Richard Grove at TragedyandHope.com, Jan Irvin at GnosticMedia.com ) use called The Brain. It is a mind mapping application that allows for quick searches as well as a graphical parent-child map for organizing thoughts as well as organizations. One can download it for free and use all the Pro features for 30 days. After the 30 days the Pro features no longer work. The tool reverts to a limited feature free version which is still very useful. For examples of what a research mapping looks like, there are online mind maps that Rich Grove and Jan Irvin have done at their sites.
