Banker Occupied Europe and America
by Stephen Lendman
Money power rules. Across Europe and America, governments follow banker diktats. They demand economies and people suffer to assure they're paid.
Money power in private hands and democracy can't co-exist. It buys what it wants at the expense of government of, by and for the people. It never was and isn't now.
Wall Street and major European banks usurped unprecedented money making power. With complicit politicians, they make it the old fashioned way. They steal it.
As a result, ordinary people are harmed. They've lost jobs, homes, savings, and futures to let privileged elites get richer and more powerful at their expense.
