Economic Diplomacy & Global Financial Governance
We know well the world of political diplomacy and international relations between states, where presidents, prime ministers, foreign ministers and secretaries of state engage in a game of power politics, expanding empire and using leverage to serve their own interests and desires. The same holds true for the world of economic diplomacy, dominated by the theocracy of the global mafiocracy, the technocratic central bank governors, finance ministers, heads of international organizations and others who meet (often in secret) at the Group of Seven, the G20, annual meetings of the World Bank and IMF, at think tanks and forums like Bilderberg, the Trilateral Commission, World Economic Forum, at industry events such as the Institute of International Finance meetings, the International Monetary Conference (IMC), and with the Group of Thirty, among others.
