James Wolfensohn, Former President of The World - Bank Big Shift Coming

Posted on the 10 July 2011 by Freeplanet @CUST0D1AN

James Wolfensohn, former president of The World Bank and CEO of Wolfensohn and Co., addressed Stanford Graduate School of Business students with details about his work at the World Bank during its transition years and how the equation between developed and developing countries is changing. Wolfensohn claimed that in the next 40 years, a global power shift will see today's leading economic countries drop from having 80% of the world's income to 35%.

Remember, this is the guy who said: David Cameron Is Wrong, Gordon Brown Should Be Next IMF Director after Strauss-Kahn's scalping and is on the advisory board of China Investment Corporation, managing the country’s $200 billion sovereign wealth fund.
One has to wonder if (as exampled by the Middle East twitter revolutions) THE INTERNET is the Neo-Casino Propaganda Machine in terms of Human Manipulation for PROFIT from institutions like the World Bank. Are people just TOO EASILY INFLUENCED by undercurrents of supposed journalistic integrity? Have we all been MK Ultra'd (by media events like 9-11 and 7-7) to believe any old shit that comes out of Mainstream Media?
Remember, in the mafia-control of gambling, THE HOUSE ALWAYS WINS, or it's not worth their while engaging in such 'business'. Here's the full version of the above video, for those who like their morning coffee black, no sugar.

As for my personal FREE PLANET context, this speech (given in January 2010) shows that the Corporate War Game against You The People in the name of profit is PROJECTED to continue through 2050. There's no obvious nod (or wink) in the direction of WORLD WAR (yet) to solve the soaring population figures in this speech. Wolfensohn seems resigned to the fact that by 2050, there'll be NINE BILLION of us. He translates the wealth shift as one billion middle-class Chinese. That does actually sound like THE WEST WILL BECOME A WASTELAND.
All by corporate design? Wow, ruthless, eh?
