80% Of The World’s Wealth Is Owned By A Tiny Elite

Tracking down the world’s wealth using supercomputers.
(post on General Patton at foot)

Ever since Benoit Mandelbrot discovered “fractals” in the 1970s, the fascinating new science of Chaos Theory has become a part of our collective knowledge base.

Mandelbrot discovered a remarkable “geometry of nature” – in which highly complex systems can be reduced down to a few very simple ingredients.

What if we use this same science to “hack” the world’s economy with super-computers – and see how many corporations actually control it?

Three scientists from the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, led by James Glattfelder, recently did this – and their results were published in New Scientist, a respected science magazine.

Glattfelder’s team unleashed this armada of supercomputers on Orbis 2007 — a very elaborate database of the top 37 million corporations and individual investors worldwide.

The results were absolutely stunning.


The Swiss scientists quickly found a total of 43,060 trans-national corporations in the Orbis 2007 database.

From this group, Glattfelder’s team revealed that a ‘core’ of 1,318 companies directly controlled 20 percent of the world’s wealth.

However, these corporations also appeared to own and control the stock in a majority of the world’s largest companies — whose profits added up to an additional 60 percent of global revenues:

New Scientist

Although they represented 20 per cent of global operating revenues, the 1318 [corporations] appeared to collectively own, through their shares, the majority of the world’s large blue chip and manufacturing firms — the “real” economy — representing a further 60 per cent of global revenues….

[This] core of 1318 companies [had] interlocking ownerships. Each of the 1318 had ties to two or more other companies, and on average they were connected to 20 [other corporations].


If that isn’t surprising enough for you, then how about this?

Glattfelder’s team then crunched the numbers even harder – and found a very deeply hidden “super-entity” of only 147 corporations – and “much of it” was connected to the 1,318-company ‘core’.

These 147 companies were all interconnected with each other in an “even more tightly knit” pattern than the 1,318 corporations in the ‘core’. To put it simply, they all owned each other’s companies.

[Specifically, each company within the “super-entity” owned shares in all 146 others.]

Together, this super-elite, good-old-boys-club of 147 companies directly earns a whopping 40 percent of all the wealth in the world:

New Scientist

When the team further untangled the web of ownership, it found much of it tracked back to a “super-entity” of 147 even more tightly knit companies — all of their ownership was held by other members of the super-entity — that controlled 40 per cent of the total wealth in the network.

Without the advanced technology of supercomputers and chaos theory, no one would have been able to discover this. History has caught up to the Powers that Were.


Next question: What kind of companies do you think these top 147 corporations are? Remember – they control a staggering 40 percent of the world’s wealth.

As it says on page 6 of the paper, 75 percent of the corporations within the “super-entity” were financial institutions.

The top 20 financial institutions within the “super-entity” should sound pretty familiar to you by now.

They include Barclays Bank, JP Morgan Chase & Co., Merrill Lynch, UBS, Bank of New York, Deutsche Bank and Goldman Sachs.

Wasp adds –

Yep this was an interesting Article. I remember reading about it in The New Scientist, I was interested in it from the point of view of the Jesuit-Vatican Connection, & I located This Stuff on The Global Crisis at the time, which I have just looked out.

Scotty Asked for this information some weeks back so here it is. It should be born in mind that the details relating to total gold mined are way out, & should be considered with Reference to The Secret Gold Treaty. Which considers total Gold Mined being of the Order of Trillions of Tonnes. Link:-

This will then lead you onto the Keenan Law Suit.

ALL VERY INTERESTING STUFF. One has to suffer from Extreme Myopia not to appreciate that any Organisation that can keep its name out of the public gaze, such as the Vatican. It must be very influential indeed. I am, therefore, surprised reading many accounts that authors totally dismiss The Vatican’s Importance, in The Global Scheme of things.

The following Link is given relating to the Wealth of The Catholic Church, ‘Gold Finger’ won’t be found in any Jewish Estate or in any Stately Home. Link:- The Great Vatican-Jesuit Global Depression 2009 – 20012, Parts (1 – 5) One of the best accounts I have yet to come accross that deals with this subject. How wealthy is the Roman Catholic Church?

The indisputable historic evidence Creative history Creative accounting What is the true picture of wealth of the church? History of property ownership of the Catholic Church The gold ownership of the Catholic Church … The Jesuits and the global finance system ….All This & More is contained within these papers, Scotty Asked for this information some weeks back so here it is. In the light of the information I submitted regarding the Bank of England Directors, Source The World Order Eustace Mullins, the Fed is controlled by the City of London, which in turn is controlled by The Vatican.

The sub prime crisis should never have happened. The Federal reserve could of easily contained the problem and stopped it in 2008. Instead, against all logic they let it get substantially worse. The answer to the fundamental question of why? why throw the world back into a depression again after 70 years requires a fresh article–an article that explains the structure of the global banking system controlled by the Vatican and Jesuits and how they started to “turn off the credit taps” by Christmas time 2008. I THINK YOU SHOULD NOW UNDERSTAND MY REASONING, IN EARLIER POSTS REGARDING The Identity of ‘GOLD FINGER’. REGARDS ……… WASP

Wasps always saying the real power resides with the Jesuits. Others like Gordon Logan say it’s the Zionists. Here’s an informed debate describing how the two groups operate and whop is really controlling the world..

Eric Phelps who wrote Vatican Assassins is the first. Another author, Michael Collins Piper who wrote a book on Zionism is the other. The interviewer starts with the question – who is the enemey within?

ORIGINAL POST – replicated from Market Garden with different title for US audience.

The battle at Arnhem. Was the operation deliberately betrayed, to stop Montgomery ending the war in 1944? Here’s the evidence that it was.

Wasp has been referring us to www.deepblacklies.co.uk for many months so I thought I’d check it out. There is so much information that it’s hard to follow the narratives. That said, one interested me greatly.

Why was General Patton stopped from advancing into the Ruhr in 1944? They cut his fuel supply even though he was across the Rhine. His tanks, which no German defence could stop, ground to a halt.

General George C Patton – ‘Old Blood & Guts’ was sure he could have finished the war in the fall of 1944 had he been supplied with fuel. He was stopped, and was later assassinated for his troubles.

He was informed by Eisenhower that it was too risky to advance on a narrow front, and he was checked. This gave the Germans a chance to regroup and launch what became known as The Battle Of The Bulge in late 1944. Patton died in a suspicious car accident a year later. The Telegraph say he was assassinated by the OSS (CIA) to silence his criticism.

EXTRACT – Patton, who distrusted the Russians, had earlier believed Eisenhower wrongly prevented him closing the so-called Falaise Gap in the autumn (summer?) of 1944, allowing hundreds of thousands of German troops to escape to fight again.
Why was Patton stopped again at the Ruhr?

After that happened, more suspicious events took place on the western front, following the same pattern (!). Operation Market Garden devised by Montgomery, with the objective of ending the war in 1944 was equally suspiciously frustrated by the actions of the High Command.

I let the narrator take over the story –


With this diversion fairly comprehensively covered, let’s now briefly return to the actual events of Montgomery’s audacious Operation Market Garden – the approved plan to take and hold the five Dutch bridges that would open a way for a massive Allied thrust at the heart of Germany.

Those who have seen the excellent film, based on Cornelius Ryan’s book “A Bridge Too Far” will recall the sheer stubborn courage of those soldiers of the Third Battalion of the US 82nd Airborne, under the command of Major Julian Cook, who paddled across the Waal river in slow, cumbersome boats, under a blizzard of deadly German fire, to assault and hold the heavily defended but critical Nijmegen road Bridge, a few miles south of Arnhem.

This was a last ditch attempt to relive the sorely battered British paratroops at Arnhem led by Colonel John Frost. Eventually succeeding, at terrible cost, the Nijmegen Bridge was taken and held. But rather than rushing armour up the road to Arnhem to relieve Colonel Frost and ensure success of Montgomery’s daring plan, a British Guards Major arriving at Nijmegen Bridge told his American counterparts that “we do not move our tanks at night.” [33] A furious Colonel Tucker, the regimental commander of the American 504th – that had secured the bridge, vehemently argued there was no time to waste before the Germans reinforced and that the British must grab the chance to reinforce Frost at Arnhem. Immune to these arguments, the English Major repeated “Well, we can’t move our tanks at night,” and then added “We will move them in the morning.” [34] The next morning, as expected, the whole area was heavy with German armoured reinforcements.

Cornelius Ryan does not name the Grenadier Guards Major in his book, which is unusual. There also appear to be some critical inaccuracies in the chain of events he sets forth in his book.

A recent BBC documentary series called “Battlefields” presented by historian Prof. Richard Holmes, focused one programme on “The Battle for Arnhem.” The programme makers interviewed on camera Captain Moffatt Burriss, commander of “I” company of the 504th, who was present when General Horrocks first asked to Colonel Tucker, commander of the 504th, if he would take the heavily defended bridge by assaulting across the Waal. According to Burriss, General Horrocks said “This is an awesome task, can your lads do it?” Tucker replied, “Well general, if we take the bridge, will your tanks be lined-up ready to go?” Horrocks replied, “My tanks will be lined-up in full force, hell-bent for Arnhem and nothing will stop them.” [35]

The Americans captured the bridge at Nijmegen at great cost. The British refused to advance down the road to Arnhem til the next day, by which time the Germans were in position to stop an advance.

Once the bridge had been taken, it was Captain Burriss who welcomed the first tanks across, and was astonished when they stopped. He asked the sergeant in the first tank why they had stopped. The sergeant who was commanding the first three tanks – soon to be joined by a fourth under the command a the Grenadier Guards major – said that there was a German anti tank gun up ahead and that “if I go up there that gun will knock out my tank.” Burriss said, “Well, we’ll go with you and get that gun.” But the offer wasn’t accepted because, the sergeant said “No, I can’t go, I’ve got no orders.” [36] A situation that is in marked contrast to General Horrocks intentions and his direct pledge to Colonel Tucker.

According to the Grenadier Guards war diary, they bridge at Nijmegen was merely “consolidated.” Also appearing on the interview was the Grenadier Guards major, who said, “it would have been quite difficult to go ahead.” Captain Burriss didn’t see it that way. He said during the programme that he “felt betrayed.” His men had taken the bridge at massive cost, facing machine guns, 20mm canons and numerous other weapons, but the British “were stopping because of one gun and they had a whole Corps of tanks” at their disposal.

There was virtually nothing between the Grenadiers and Arnhem 8 miles away. At the north end of Arnhem Bridge the British paratroopers still held out. With an injured Colonel Frost, his second-in-command Major, Tony Hibbert of the 1st Parachute Brigade, fought on. He could hear the tanks of the Grenadier Guards in the distance. But they didn’t arrive. Interviewed for the BBC programme he reflected wryly, perhaps even bitterly, that the Market Garden plan “Could and should have worked,” adding with a wry look that the tanks under the control of Lord Carrington were “over the bridge before we were overrun.”

The Gomberg Map from 1942, accurately predicting European borders at the end of WW2. General Patton thought he was fighting NAZIs, not bankers, and Zionist/Jesuit elites.

TAP again. Other rumours question how the Germans knew to position a Panser regiment to regroup at Arnhem just before the attack was made. Was the operation compromised deliberately?
The evidence stacks up that there was a plan for the war to continue into 1945. The Russians were to advance as far as Berlin making the postwar era for central Europe Communist, crushing all hopes of national revival for scores of countries, and making it inevitable that the next generation would live through what became known as the Cold War, and be suppressed with fear of nuclear war, tolerating ever increasing state power across the western world.

In my book, there is enough evidence to show that the Germans were keen to end the war in the west, but Hitler, controlled by Jesuit and Vatican agent Martin Borman, was instructed to carry on the fight in the west, until the Russians had taken over Berlin, when Hitler and Borman were to be safely evacuated, bringing out the details of where all the gold, bonds and art treasures were hidden.

Such notions are consistent with the book I read in December, which I recommend.
Grey Wolf – The Escape Of Adolf Hitler. Simon Dunstan, Gerrard Williams. Sterling.

And yes, Hitler did live in Patagonia and Argentina until he died a lonely man in 1962. There is stacks of evidence that both and Borman were assisted out by the British and Americans.
