5* "Anyone Who Controls The Money Controls Political Power, Controls The Economy, & Controls People's Lives"
[THIS ONE DEALS WITH CLIFF KüLE'S PURPOSE .. THINK ABOUT CONTROL OF THE CREATION & DISTRIBUTION OF MONEY & ALL ITS IMPLICATIONS]
"They all went to MIT or Harvard. They were each other’s classmates and each other’s thesis advisors. They’re running all the central banks in the world; they’re the most powerful people in the world .. They have a vested interest in gold, making you not think about gold, and miseducating you about gold because they want a paper-money standard that they can control. Anyone who controls the money controls political power, controls the economy, and controls people’s lives."

Putin's Decade-Old Dream Realized as Russia to Price Its Own Oil


Russian President Vladimir Putin is on the verge of realizing a decade-old dream: Russian oil priced in Russia.

The nation’s largest commodity exchange, whose chairman is Putin ally Igor Sechin, is courting international oil traders to join its emerging futures market. The goal is to increase revenue from Urals crude by disconnecting the price-setting mechanism from the world’s most-used Brent oil benchmark. Another aim is to move away from quoting petroleum in U.S. dollars.

If Russia is going to attract international participation in Russian-based pricing, the Kremlin will need to persuade traders it’s not simply trying to push prices up, some energy analysts said. The government is dependent on oil revenue to fund its budgets.

“The goal is to create a system where Russian oil is priced and traded in a fair and straightforward way,” said Alexei Rybnikov, president of the St. Petersburg International Mercantile Exchange, or Spimex, in a phone interview.
