Interest of G. Edward Griffin

Central banks control currency creation, though the large majority of money is created by commercial banks. Ultimately however, they control the seigniorage profits from the interest system.

Control

Some central banks are privately owned (such as the US Federal Reserve) but the majority are at least officially under government control. Many leaders of central banks in Western European and North American countries have attended the Bilderberg, including all the Presidents of the European Central Bank and Presidents of the European Monetary Institute.

Cash shipments

After Western Global Airlines N545JN was discovered to be carrying 67 tonnes of freshly printed South African currency, and a dead body, the South African Reserve Bank suggested that such cash shipments are routine: “The bulk of the annual production of banknotes is done locally in South Africa and a small percentage is done offshore as part of the contingency plans of the SARB. The aircraft currently detained at Harare Airport is carrying a consignment of South African banknotes that was produced overseas as part of the SARB's annual production plan.”[citation needed]

The privately held cartel which profits off the US$ monopoly. It was set up by a group of large financiers on December 23, 1913 after the failure of earlier privatisations by stealth of the US money supply. The petrodollar allowed this system to make global profits during much of the 20th century.
