Editor note: This is an excerpt from a Bloomberg/Business Week article, which discusses Bernanke towards the end of the article. Bernanke wasn’t on the official attendance list for this year’s Bilderberg meeting, but the organization routinely leaves important people off the final list.
We do know for a fact that Bernanke attended the 2008 Bilderberg meeting in Chantilly Virginia. His arrival is pictured below.
Excerpt from Bloomerg article…..
My last hope that the PPT would rescue the stock market, which was sinking again after Friday’s disappointing employment report for May, lay elsewhere. The U.K. press was rife with stories about a weekend meeting of the Bilderberg Group.
This annual event, where the global elite convene at great hotels to discuss the world’s problems, is shrouded in secrecy. The press isn’t invited.
That doesn’t mean no press coverage. One website said the agenda this year would include approaches to provoking the kind of economic breakdown that could “justify the establishment of a full-scale world economic governance.” Another website said the group would discuss manufacturing a global depression to implement their dream of one-world government.
That these assertions sound less wacky than they used to tells you to what extent public and private sectors have become enmeshed and to what degree governments have coordinated their national and regional bailouts.
Was it just a coincidence that Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke didn’t attend the G-20 meeting in South Korea, sending Fed Governor Kevin Warsh in his place? I called the Fed to find out.
Bernanke will not be attending the Bilderberg Group weekend meeting, the Fed told me on Friday. Maybe that’s just what they want me to believe. Has anyone checked Lloyd Blankfein’s calendar?
