Posts Tagged ‘Rich Listers’

Beyond the official summaries of the world’s wealth, and how few control it, there is in our opinion a hidden system of finance, which, if one day proven, will show there is an even greater gap between the global elite and the rest.

We expand on this in our book INTERNATIONAL BANKSTER$: The Global Banking Elite Exposed and the Case for Restructuring Capitalism.

INTERNATIONAL BANKSTER$: The Global Banking Elite Exposed and the Case for Restructuring Capitalism (The Underground Knowledge Series Book 5) 

Here’s an excerpt from the book:

It’s generally accepted the world’s so-called ‘Rich Lists,’ from Forbes and the like, are not accurate in that their estimates of the Rich Listers’ wealth are just that – estimates. However, according to our research, the world’s wealthiest individuals don’t necessarily even make the lists.

It has been purported by financial researchers and others in the know that there are individuals whose net worth would dwarf whoever tops the Forbes Rich List at any given time – net worth the likes of Bill Gates, Warren Buffett or Carlos Slim Helu could only dream about.

This may be hard to fathom, but it’s important to consider two points when analyzing the finances of the global elite.

Firstly, without being able to inspect the bank accounts of billionaires, Forbes and similar Rich List publishers can only make crude guesstimates of individuals’ true worth. As a result, their lists are anything but official and their accuracy is questionable – something the billionaire community is quick to point out.

Secondly, beyond those individuals and sums mentioned on the Rich Lists, there exists what is often referred to as invisible or hidden wealth. This involves non-disclosed fortunes that are virtually impossible to detect. The planet’s invisible wealth is comprised of undeclared income stashed away in offshore tax havens and Swiss bank accounts, secret Old World money and black market economies in which criminal enterprises conduct their business.

The criminal enterprises referred to include illegal drugs and arms dealing. One such arms dealer is Saudi Arabian Adnan Khashoggi who some banking and financial commentators estimate had a massive personal fortune of between US$2 trillion and US$7 trillion in the 1980’s.

However, the world is still waiting for its first official trillionaire, and Khashoggi’s fortune was only ever estimated by Forbes and the likes to be worth between $400 million and several billion. If the rumors of Khashoggi’s multi-trillion dollar personal fortune were true then there’s an extremely wide gulf separating unofficial and official estimates of his wealth.

The 2005 feature film Lord of War, directed by Andrew Niccol and starring Nicolas Cage and Ethan Hawke, is said to have been inspired by Russian arms dealer Viktor Bout.

Like Khashoggi, Bout is rumored to have amassed a huge personal fortune impossible to estimate. Cage’s character, a Ukranian-American arms dealer, is shown in the movie to be above the law with apparently unlimited money and resources.

The now deceased former Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos is another individual strongly rumored to have profited from the black market. Many who investigated Marcos, including politicians in the current Philippine government, say much of his wealth was secured from discoveries of the WW2 Japanese treasure hoard known as Yamashita’s Gold. As the existence of those treasures was never acknowledged by any government, it’s conceivable President Marcos could have amassed a large fortune impossible to trace or estimate. Some investigators say his secret bank accounts amounted to trillions of dollars.

If this sounds totally unbelievable, consider the television interview his widowed wife Imelda Marcos gave in 2009 for the BBC TV travel series Explore. While being filmed inside her lavish home in the Philippines, Imelda told BBC presenter Simon Reeve that her late husband was heavily associated with gold mining companies and also traded in gold.

The former First Lady then presented Reeve with an official document. Although she would not allow the document itself to be filmed, Reeve confirmed it was a Certificate of Deposit made by Ferdinand E. Marcos in a bank in Brussels, Belgium, for the amount of Nine Hundred and Eighty Seven Billion United States Dollars. For those who don’t have a good math brain, that’s only 13 billion short of a trillion bucks.

If true, this sum in Marcos’ Belgium bank account alone would be almost 13 times more than Bill Gates’ total current fortune. The legacy of the former president becomes even more staggering when considering that this was just one of his bank accounts; the Philippine government has confirmed through investigations of its own that Marcos had many such secret accounts in banks all over the world.

Do you believe the likes of Bill Gates & Warren Buffett are the richest people in the world as per the annual Forbes Rich Lists? Or do you believe there is a hidden world of ‘black money’ involving elite individuals with undeclared fortunes that would dwarf those earned by the likes of Gates & Buffett?

That’s the question we’ve put to members of our Underground Knowledge discussion group in our latest poll on Goodreads.com – and so far 79% say they believe there are individuals with fortunes greater than those listed at the top of Forbes Rich Lists.

Only 9% of poll respondents indicate they believe the estimates on the Forbes Rich Lists are roughly correct while 12% are unsure.

A random sample of respondents’ comments follow:

We are living in an illusion after the Riemann shock. The paper money has no meaning now except for our common life in the world. In fact, the present world economy is in the bankrupt state and this evidence has been concealed from our public eyes. Hence Forbes rich list has no meaning but most of us believe that it is true. Maybe great catastrophe of economy will be happened in the near future. How can we survive in this great catastophe?

Not a case of “i believe there are people more wealthy””, i know there are people far more wealthy!!

I suspect Putin may be the richest person in the world. Yet he is not on any list.

The wealth of the Rothschild family is beyond comprehension or valuation!!

In our modern society, scientists invented a monster called financial engineering. It makes the total debt of our society to reach to an unimaginable level. No one in the world knows what is its total amount. Now we are living on the verge of money crisis. Even the wealth of Rothchild family or Royal family cannnot stop this catastrophe.

Lets put it this way, if they all donated just 1% of their money to alleviating poverty, hunger and disease around the world, there would not be children dying every few minutes of malnutrition, water borne diseases, malaria and multiple other reasons. One has only to wonder, “do they want them to die, or are they just so insular and ignorant, that they just don’t care?”

There are others, more secretive, whose financial empires are bigger than the Rothschilds (in my humble opinion). The world of ‘black money’ is like an onion or a Russian doll where you keep peeling back the layers of wealth and each layer is more and more hidden with greater and greater wealth…

Do you believe World Trade Center 7 (aka Building 7), which no plane hit on 9/11, collapsed solely due to fires as per the official story?

Do you believe A.I. (artificial intelligence) will ever be more advanced/sophisticated than human intelligence?

Do you believe Princess Diana was murdered?

Do you believe Capitalism should be restructured, replaced by another economic system or left exactly as is?

Do you believe classified mind control technologies are being used by governments on innocent citizens?

Do you believe time travel is possible?

Do you believe genius-level intelligence is primarily the result of nature (genes) or nurture (education, environment, parenting etc)?

Do you believe Jesus Christ was a real historical person?

Do you believe Robert (Bobby) F. Kennedy (RFK) was solely killed by the “lone gunman” Sirhan Sirhan?

It has been purported by financial researchers and alternative media outlets that there are individuals whose net worth would dwarf whoever tops the Forbes Rich List at any given time – net worth the likes of Bill Gates, Warren Buffett or Carlos Slim Helu could only dream about.

This may be hard to fathom, but it’s important to consider two points when analyzing the finances of the global elite.

As a result, their lists are anything but official and their accuracy is questionable – something the billionaire community is quick to point out.

Secondly, beyond those individuals and sums mentioned on the Rich Lists, there exists what is often referred to as invisible or hidden wealth. This involves non-disclosed fortunes that are virtually impossible to detect.

We examine this in some detail in our book THE ORPHAN CONSPIRACIES: 29 Conspiracy Theories from The Orphan Trilogy.

Here’s an exceprt from the book:

The planet’s invisible wealth is comprised of undeclared income stashed away in offshore tax havens and Swiss bank accounts, secret Old World money and black market economies in which criminal enterprises conduct their business.

The criminal enterprises referred to include illegal drugs and arms dealing. One such arms dealer is Saudi Arabian Adnan Khashoggi who some banking and financial commentators estimate had a massive personal fortune of between US$2 trillion and US$7 trillion in the 1980’s.

Blockbuster inspired by another wealthy arms dealer.

Former Philippine President Ferdinand Marcos is another individual strongly rumored to have profited from the black market. As mentioned in chapter 6, many who have investigated Marcos, including politicians in the current Philippine government, say much of his wealth was secured from discoveries of Yamashita’s Gold. As the existence of those treasures was never acknowledged by any government, it’s conceivable President Marcos could have amassed a large fortune impossible to trace or estimate. Some investigators say his secret bank accounts amounted to trillions of dollars.

Ferdinand E. Marcos

Ferdinand Marcos…worth trillions of dollars?

If this sounds totally unbelievable, consider the television interview Imelda Marcos gave in 2009 for the BBC TV travel series Explore. While being filmed inside her lavish home in the Philippines, Imelda told BBC presenter Simon Reeve that her late husband was heavily associated with gold mining companies and also traded in gold.

First Lady of glam: Mrs Marcos was a beautiful woman who always looked glamorous

Imelda Marcos…happy to spill the beans.

The former First Lady then presented Reeve with an official document. Although she would not allow the document itself to be filmed, Reeve confirmed it was a Certificate of Deposit made by Ferdinand E. Marcos in a bank in Brussels, Belgium, for the amount of Nine Hundred and Eighty Seven Billion United States Dollars. For those who don’t have a good math brain, that’s only 13 billion short of a trillion bucks.

If true, this sum in Marcos’ Belgium bank account alone would be almost 13 times more than Bill Gates’ total current fortune. The legacy of the former president becomes even more staggering when considering that this was just one of his bank accounts; the Philippine government has confirmed through investigations of its own that Marcos had many such secret accounts in banks all over the world.

Sticking with the idea that there are individuals worth far more than the names topping official rich lists, some say Queen Elizabeth II is one of the wealthiest people, if not the wealthiest, in the world. In our spy thriller The Orphan Factory we run with this theory by referring to secret Royal assets and undeclared income of unimaginable proportions.
