The Bilderbergers are not a secret society, insists Andrew Kakabadse, a professor at Cranfield University School of Management. The meeting is just a get-together of bankers and business magnates who understand how capitalism works and are trying to help.
Henry Kissinger, Bill Clinton, Prince Charles, Peter Mandelson, George Osborne, Tony Blair, Eric Schmidt – these are merely interesting people who were sent invitations. It’s basically nothing more than rich people saying nice things to each other, Kakabadse explains.
Nothing to see here. Please move along.
On other hand, the professor says when royalty rubs elbows with Wall Street and former presidents, wars are prevented and crises “smoothed out.”
If you believe any of this, I have a bridge for sale.
It is interesting that Bloomberg feels compelled to explain away Bilderberg. In the past, they would simply ignore the annual meeting.
Now they describe Kissinger and Rockefeller as somewhat boring folks who prevent wars and financial crises.
