King- Financing Business

The public is led to believe that our government borrows from "the people" through savings bonds. Actually, however, only a small percentage of the national debt is held by individuals in this form. Most government bonds, except those held by the government itself through its trust funds, are held by vast banking firms known as international banks .

For centuries there has been big money to be made by international bankers in the financing of governments and kings. Such operators, however, are faced with certain thorny problems. We know that smaller banking operations protect themselves by taking collateral, but what kind of collateral can you get from a government or a king?. What if the banker comes to collect and the king says, "Off with his head!" The process through which one collects a debt from a government or a monarch is not a subject taught in the business schools of our universities, and most of us - having never been in the business of lending money to kings - have not given the problem much thought. But there is a king- financing business, and to those who can ensure collection it is lucrative indeed.

Economics professor Stuart Crane notes that there are two means used to collateralize loans to governments and kings. Whenever a business firm borrows big money its creditor obtains a voice in management to protect his investment. Like a business, no government can borrow big money unless willing to surrender to the creditor some measure of sovereignty as collateral. Certainly, international bankers who have loaned hundreds of billions of dollars to governments around the world command considerable influence in the policies of such goverments.

But the ultimate advantage that the creditor has over the government or ruler is the threat that if the borrower steps out of line the banker can finance an enemy or rival and can even create an enemy by such means. Therefore, if you want to stay in the king-financing business, it is wise to have an enemy or a rival waiting in the wings to unseat every ruler to whom you lend. If the king does'nt have an enemy, you must create one.

Pre-eminent in playing this game was the famous House of Rothschild (German for Redshield, a name adopted by this family for the red shield over the front door of their house). Its founder, Meyer Amschel Rothschild (1743-1812) of Frankfurt, Germany, kept one of his five sons at home to run the Frankfurt bank, and sent the others to Paris, London, Vienna and Naples. The Rothschilds became incredibly wealthy during the nineteenth century by financing governments to war with one another.

According to Professor Stuart Crane:

"If you will look back at every war in Europe during
the Nineteenth Century, you will see that they always
ended with the establishment of a 'balance of power'.
With every re-shuffling there was a balance of power in
a new grouping around the House of Rothschild in
England, France or Austria. They grouped nations, so
that if any king stepped out of line a war would break
out and the war would be decided by which way the
financing went. Researching the debt positions of the
warring nations will usually indicate who was to be
