For those who believe in conspiracy theories and for those who dont -

Meet the group of MIT Ph.D. theoreticians* who control everything:

...The 18-member group, formally known as the Economic Consultative Committee, has only once issued a public statement: a two-line missive in September, promising to look for solutions in interbank lending markets, responding to allegations that some private banks had conspired to manipulate the Libor interest rate...

The Bank of England's Mr. King leads the dinner discussions in a room decorated by the Swiss architectural firm Herzog & de Meuron, which designed the "Bird's Nest" stadium for the Beijing Olympics. The men have designated seats at a round table in a dining area scented by white orchids and framed by white walls, a black ceiling and panoramic views...

"It is a way in which people can talk completely privately," Mr. King said in an interview. "It is a big advantage if you have some feel for how central banks think about questions, what they're likely to do in the future if certain events were to occur."

... a handful of people from MIT, deeply steeped in economic theory (not practice), the same people whose actions incidentally responsible for the first great financial crisis, and who yield more power than any potenate in the history of the world - people who, as the ECB showed in the case of Berlusconi, can take down presidents and PMs with the flick of a switch, meet in private. No transcripts or [butlers] are allowed.

In other words, they are accountable to absolutely nobody.

Which is to be expected: after all they are conducting the greatest experiment in monetary, geopolitical and social history. If they fail... when they fail, everyone loses.

* Interestingly, the cadre of central bankers/experimenters who control the world, all seem to have graduated from or to have been associated with MIT's Doctoral Programs in Economics from the 1970s through the 1990s, including the following:

Bernanke, Fischer, Draghi, King, Stein, English, Kamin, Wilcox, Gibson, Bean, Blanchard, Subbarao, De Gregorio, Orphanides, Lowe...

If these folks aren't the real Illuminati, I don't know who would be.
