Mighty financial handful

The whole world has long been saying that 99% of the total planetary capital is concentrated in the hands of the owners of major transnational corporations. However, if earlier such words remained only words, now they have a sufficiently strong basis. The basis of this is called world economic studies by specialists from the University of Zurich (Switzerland).


Scientists decided by computer simulation to investigate the level of integration of world financial institutions and various business communities. A truly impressive base consisting of 43060 TNK (transnational corporations) was used for the study. This figure was not taken, as they say, "from the ceiling", but was obtained as a result of even more global economic research. 43060 was selected by the sorting method from more than 37 of millions of TNCs studied worldwide. As a result, the uncompromising machine produced quite shocking results.

So, the calculations of Swiss scientists have shown that most of the 43060 TNCs under study have common assets, which indicates their unambiguous relationship. The financial impact model singled out 1318 companies that did not have overlapping economic potentials at the first stage of the study. However, in the course of further work, it turned out that the selected 1318 had direct or indirect connections (up to affiliates) to each other. The computer program showed that, of the number indicated, about 147 companies could be called the main core of the global economy. Most of these 147 mi belong to financial institutions, including Barklays, Capital Group, Merril Lynch & Co.

If we consider the total income detected by the computer system of the financial core, it is 40% of the entire global economy. And still 20% fall on companies that are somehow connected with the “core”. It would seem that the remaining 40% fall to the share of all the rest, but, as already mentioned, the lion's share of this amount is also divided into affiliates or subsidiaries of the same “core”.

As a result, it can be stated that out of 37, millions of 147 transnational corporations manage major wealth. It turns out that the fate of people is not even in the hands of 1% of financial magnates, but among several thousand people who are trying to continue to divide spheres of influence.

According to data published by Swiss researchers, one can say that the globalization of the modern world has reached its apogee. Every breath of the world economy can not do without the "jerking of a string" by managers from TNCs of the main financial core.

For obvious reasons, the financial collapse of one company leads to the collapse of the entire system that has been formed. And this system is becoming more and more like the dominoes placed next to each other. The closer they line up to each other, the faster the crisis wave spreads with unstable behavior of one of them. To rebuild such a system that has evolved over decades, in the near future is simply impossible. And is it necessary to reform the ideological inspirers of their “child” themselves?

It turns out that the only way of global financial change is external influence. Whether this occupation of the Occupy Your City is relevant is a very controversial issue.

Sad as it may be, even if there is some external force in the world to carry out economic reformation, the process will be extremely painful and obviously extended in time.

      Well, how, if not enough.
      It is necessary to raise wild boars, and then to divide, as the great Lenin bequeathed.
      They themselves will not share, naturally.
      (most likely our government has just such plans, they just wait until the election of Putin)

        Ah, now they’ve shared with you, don’t tell. You are better than considering other people's money as your personal life. Envy is bad. Such boars, as you say, provide jobs for 70% of the Russian population and most of the taxes collected come from them, and certainly not from you. The government will spread rot, so they will take out all their capital abroad and the workers will reduce their jobs and you will walk naked, rebels were found. The same vodka you deliver to your beloved hogs.

              No, not “just because they are foreign”.
              If you are aware, then they have untwisted, these same "foreign" since the tsarist times, largely at our expense, and therefore for mine too. And they continue to untwist today, because The Federal Reserve of the Russian Federation is located, you know where. Just do not say that they have nothing to do with it and that it is our Government there or Yeltsin to blame.

                  Googled how much the West owes Russia, multiply by inflation for 100 years, add a penalty and you can (mentally) buy some seedy France.
                  Nobody ran away to give them the current, hiding behind the fact that the Tsar gave it, but there is no question of succession.
                  But the scoop debts love to receive Pts! Here they will immediately tell you in detail about Russia - the successor of the USSR.

                      country companies or country companies? Did not quite understand.
                      And the state takes money, for example, like the United States for military needs, or laying roads, pensions, etc. And companies are engaged in their own business, they only pay taxes and that’s all, debt is not the right spending of budget funds by the state, roughly speaking, they spend more than they get. Companies are profit to the state from their taxes, the more companies, the correspondingly more profit, jobs. If we let half of our companies go away in one fell swoop, then Russia will end. There will be massive unemployment, the export of capital abroad, budget cuts, maybe even hunger and a whole bunch more. Nobody will allow the company to be destroyed; all the country's infrastructure is supported on them. You won’t go to the defense industry and minerals, but imagine how much money you need to allocate for unemployment benefits.

                      Although it is exaggerated, but the same thing.
                      To simplify, it turns out - a company of people (no matter what) organizes a society (no matter which), where it is constantly formed as a result of a competitive (and not so) struggle - financial capital, which is concentrated not in everyone, but again in successful companies of this society. They then rule the score (i.e., the oligarchy) and themselves go to the throne, and if they don’t succeed, they use the proteges (which may be parties, presidents and other top officials), manipulating at the economic and political levels at the beginning within their society , and then (when they grow up) and globally, combining with others like them, because "A bad world is better than a good war." But it does not always roll and as a result - World Wars and the redivision of spheres of influence.
                      For part of Russia (my opinion):
                      We did not have much time left on the resources. And regarding my own business (business, as it is fashionable right now), I consider the main problems:
                      1. Demographic - the country's population is aging, and pensions and social services. subsidies are needed by everyone, BUT, able-bodied citizens are in the minority and are forced to somehow provide a financially inflated pension fund (we will lower corruption). As a result, we have payments in PF + TFOMS + FFOMS 4040 per quart., Which is a bit much, frankly speaking.
                      2. The moral (which is natural) not the willingness of citizens to change their mentality, ie "Waiting from the givers" (it does not matter who the giver is - the state or the owner).
                      In general - you still need to grow up and give birth. (Damn, Ostap suffered, already the beer was over.)

By the way, recent changes in the world show this colorfully.

                      Yes, it, dear evg5835, seems to be correct, but, as they say, "It seems like Volodya ..."
                      For example, the protection of intellectual property in the world is legal, only many (led by China) wanted to sneeze. Or take Russia-it seems that there is also a committee on antitrust policy, but that's not much use.
                      Theory is a theory, but practice demonstrates something completely different.
                      In general, of course, for the world community there is an unplowed field.

    I think that these results of the research by Swiss scientists did not fall into the information space by chance. Judge for yourself if a small group (which was known for a long time, but kept in relative secrecy) owns almost all world finances, then it means the media. The stuffing of information is done to legalize their existence so that people get used to and understand that it is impossible to live without a world government. The Vatican has already advocated the creation of a world bank. All this is far from accidental. Therefore, one must also relate to mass external shares, as the author called them. Most likely the manipulator is the same.

    it is very strange that the author emphasized the starting point of his interpretation of the original article.

    To be precise, 1318 companies own 20% of global operating income and the subsequent 60% of operating income can be attributed to these companies since they (1318 companies) own large manufacturers and other participants, the so-called "real economy."

    The super-core, consisting of 147 companies, owns 40% of the total wealth of the network.

    The author writes:
    “It would seem that the rest of them account for the remaining 40%, but, as already mentioned, the lion's share of this amount is also divided into affiliates or subsidiaries of the same“ core. "

    Nothing of the kind is indicated in the article.

    Also, the conclusion that is drawn in the article is not talking about:

    “It turns out that the fate of people is not in the hands of even 1% of financial tycoons, but in the hands of several thousand people who are trying to continue to further divide the spheres of influence.

    and about the fact that 147 companies completely own each other, i.e. not specific individuals are shareholders, but other corporations, and as a result, such fragmentation of interests prevents the influence of this "superstructure". The following is pointed out precisely to the fact that in connection with such extensive holdings, each individual company does not own any decisive shareholding in another company from Group 147; expressed by the wording “owning does not mean managing.”

    As a result, the only thing this structure can influence together is a common enemy, for example, attempts by governments to regulate their activities.

    It is interesting, in the top 50 out of 147 there is only one manufacturer, the rest are banks and other financial institutions.

    Note to critics - first of all, please read the original:
