Fear of economic uncertainty is the #1 cause of stress in many peoples lives. Working twenty years inside some of the largest banks in the world, I witnessed how organized financial systems cooperated (conspired?) together to cause billions in harm to society. I am compelled to share this rather than remain silently complicit.
1. Banks and investment dealers pay less than one Billion dollars to control virtually every key regulator in the land, while they (banks) made profits of $45 Billion last year.
2. Choosing and paying the key regulators gives banks power and influence over the regulators, rather than the other way around. The cost to control the regulators is known in the industry as a small “insurance premium” to protect the payer of the premiums.
3. Power over the regulators means banks can ignore certain laws, and can also purchase passes to be “exempt” from other laws and public protections. (510 Exemptions granted by the OSC in 2017 and 410 in 2018 according to OSC staff...see links in comments section below)
They can unjustly earn billions of dollars while regulators turn a blind eye. Examples are contained in a book of organized financial crime titled “ABOUT YOUR FINANCIAL MURDER…”.
