George Soros Plans "Bretton Woods II"

Look who's scheming what behind the scene, while all the turmoils from Libya to Indiana, from fighting for life and liberty to fighting to keep to themselves as much taxpayers' money as possible, occupy the news headlines.

George Soros is convening a monetary policy conference in Bretton Woods...

From Economic Policy Journal (2/22/2011):

A monetary conference sponsored by the Institute for New Economic Thinking - a nonprofit founded in 2009 with a $50 million pledge from oligarch George Soros - will be held April 8-11 at the Mount Washington Hotel in Bretton Woods.

Here's the attendance list, according to the article:

Paul Volcker, Former Chairman, Federal Reserve

Adair Turner, Chairman, Financial Services Authority

Richard Bronk, London School of Economics

Gordon Brown, Former Prime Minister, United Kingdom

Paul Davidson, Co-Founder, Journal of Post Keynesian Economics

Martin Wolf, Chief Economics Commentator, Financial Times

Niall Ferguson, Professor of History, Harvard University

Andy Haldane, Executive Director, Financial Stability, Bank of England

Simon Johnson, Professor of Entrepreneurship, Global Economics and Management, Sloan School of Management, Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Henry Kaufman, President, Henry Kaufman & Co., Inc.

Zhu Min, Special Advisor, International Monetary Fund

Carmen Reinhart, Dennis Weatherstone Senior Fellow, Peterson Institute for International Economics

Kenneth Rogoff, Professor of Economics, Harvard University

Jeff Sachs, Director of the Earth Institute

Joseph Stiglitz, University Professor, Columbia Uni[versity]

A parade of globalists and Trilateralists, not to mention CFR members, Bilderbergers... Hey how come Stiglitz is invited but not Paul "Clueless" Krugman? And Gordon Brown? What kind of joke is this? Oh I vaguely remember - Gordon Brown was fishing for a job at the head of the IMF.

The article has excellent information from Lew Rockwell and Murray Rothbard on Bretton Woods I after the World War II, when John Maynard Keynes got almost all his wishes (and we are where we are in 2011).

I have a feeling that this is a "front". Hidden away somewhere is an equivalent of "Jekyll Island" - a extremely secret meeting of bankers to plot the creation of the Federal Reserve in the US - this time on a global scale.
