As a middle-class girl from nowhere [new Jersey], I believed that if I worked hard and played by the rules my future would be anything I wished it to be.Yes, that Rothschild.
This was an era when it really seemed that, economically at least, that girl from nowhere could have it all. My first two marriages failed, but I was able to support my two sons, earn a nine-figure fortune with my own series of start-up businesses and was named the 4th Most Powerful Woman in European Business by Fortune magazine.
In 2000, I married an Englishman, Sir Evelyn de Rothschild, who also carried his head high.
Among other things Evelyn has been:
Chairman - The Economist (1972–1989)
Chairman - British Merchant Banking & Securities House Association (1985–1989)
Deputy Chairman - Milton Keynes Development Corporation (1971–1984)
Chairman - United Racecourses (1977–1994)
Director - De Beers Consolidated Mines (1977–1994)
Director - IBM United Kingdom Holdings Limited (1972–1995)
In her mini-bio, she also fails to mention that she is 23 year younger than the old coot or that Henry Kissinger first introduced them to each other at a Bilderberg meeting.
I am sure she forgot to write all this because she is too busy saving capitalism. She did write:
Can a middle-class girl from nowhere ‘be good’ and make it the way I did? I seriously wonder if she even would want to try.Of course, her babbling is about idiotic propaganda that has nothing to do with capitalism.
Exactly what do the Lynn Foresters of today think when they learn that Barclays manipulated LIBOR rates, that CEOs make on average 380 times as much as employees, and that Bernie Madoff wiped out the savings of his own friends?
The bedrock of my view of the world was that economic success was available for those who are not born at the top of the ladder.
Bernie Madoff was a crook, aided and abetted by the SEC. His crimes had nothing to do with capitalism. LIBOR is a second rate mini-scandal that can't compare to the money and interest rate manipulations conducted everyday by central banks, such as the Fed, the ECB and the BOE.
The reason CEOs are making so much more than most employees is because of regulations promoted by the Rockefellers and Rothschilds in building a moat around themselves to protect against competitors. The CEOs that earn the big salaries were just lucky enough to get under the big tent with R&R.
Given all this, is it conceivable taht Lynn Forster De Rothschild actually wants to change things for the better. like rip down central banks. End regulations that suffocate new comers? Hah! She's up to something:
In an effort to bring the best to the system, I am co-chairing a new international group, the Henry Jackson Initiative For Inclusive Capitalism that is trying to showcase several immediate and permanent solutions from the private sector.Watch your wallet.
