Just fancy that
The European Central Bank has won a ruling to refuse access to secret files showing how Greece used derivatives to hide its debt. They were guided in this scam by Goldman Sachs.
“Disclosure of those documents would have undermined the protection of the public interest so far as concerns the economic policy of the EU and Greece,” the European Union general court in Luxembourg said, rejecting a challenge by Bloomberg News brought under the EU’s freedom of information rules.
The ECB is of course headed by a former Goldman banker, Mario Draghi. Although comment about this was sparse, the new Bank of England Governor Mark Carney is also ex Goldman Sachs. The Prime Minister of Italy Mario Monti is ex Goldman Sachs. Hank Paulson – architect of the 2009 US bailout – was ex Goldman Sachs. Greece’s interim technocrat government in 2011 was headed by Lucas Papademos – also ex Goldman Sachs.
The privatisation of public money in the West is thus more or less complete.
German chancellor Angela Merkel said in February 2010: “It’d be a scandal if it turned out that the same banks that brought us to the brink of the abyss helped to fake the statistics.”
But she isn’t showing any signs of concern about two european central bankers and one PM being graduates of that very same bank.
Anyway, bent EU Court finds in favour of depraved Wall Street bank, and against freedom of the press. Protection of the public interest, nothing to see here, move along please….that means you too, Mr Leveson…
