The world’s most powerful men are meeting secretly again in Vouliagmeni, Greece. Every year since 1954 a club of about 130 senior or up-and-coming politicians gather at a secluded hotel with top bankers and a sprinkling of royalty to discuss burning issues.
Most people have never heard of the Bilderberg Group or the “Bilderbergers,” because the mainstream media has agreed to a blackout of any coverage. There is no official list of who’s who in Bilderberg and there are no press conferences about the meetings. This is because the group operates under the “Chatham House Rule,” and no details of what goes on inside are released to the press. This year’s conference is being covered by British broadsheets, but don’t expect to see any coverage from U.S. news outlets such as The Wall Street Journal or the Washington Post – they will most likely be at the conference.
Th is year the club is going to talk about depression. “According to the pre-meeting booklet sent out to attendees, Bilderberg is looking at two options,” says the Bilderberg-watcher Daniel Estulin — “either a prolonged, agonising depression that dooms the world to decades of stagnation, decline and poverty — or an intense but shorter depression that paves the way for a new sustainable economic world order, with less sovereignty but more efficiency.”
Recently leaked documents from the 1955 Bilderberg Group conference held in Germany discuss the agenda to create a European Union and a single EU currency, decades before they were introduced. The BBC has previously covered the fact that the group was instrumental in the formation of the EU and the Euro currency. It was only last month that Belgian viscount and current Bilderberg-chairman Étienne Davignon bragged that Bilderberg helped create the Euro by first introducing the policy agenda for a single currency in the early 1990’s.
