World Finance and Monetary Designs
after WW I
Montagu Norman and Benjamin Strong
By F. William Engdahl
    "After 1914, under the guidance of a Morgan man, Benjamin
    Strong, first and, by far, the most powerful President in
    the history of the New York Federal Reserve Bank, U.S.
    monetary policy and capital flows in the critical         
    years up to 1929-1931, were, in effect, guided by the Bank
    of England under its head, Montagu Norman. The banking
    capital flows of the twelve regional Federal Reserve banks
    were channeled into New York under Strong's influence.
    It was a lop-sided domination by New York, opposite to the
    original intent of the Federal Reserve Act of 1913, which
    envisioned a division of powers among the regional Federal
    Reserve districts and the Washington Reserve         
    Board. The Federal Reserve Act of 1913 had been passed by
    Congress primarily to prevent the damaging effects of
    periodic banking panics such as in 1907, from causing
    broader domestic economic depressions." -> more

Some unconventional reflections
on the Great Depression and the New Deal
By F. William Engdahl
    It was fortunate for the historical legacy of President
    Franklin Delano Roosevelt, that the initial military
    success of the Third Reich in Europe in 1939-1940, and the
    bombing of Pearl Harbor in December 1941 took attention
    away from his record in dealing with America's Great
    Depression. Had Roosevelt not ended his Presidency as a
    victorious war President, he would instead be remembered
    as the President whose policies all but ruined the
    inherent econom -> more

Halford MacKinder's Necessary War
By F. William Engdahl
"An iron-clad Swedish guarantee"
    The dependence of the German steel industry on the Swedish
    iron ore was no small affair. By 1938, shortly before
    Hitler marched into Austria, German steel
    production had tripled in tonnage from 1913, on the eve of
    the First World War. Ruhr steel mills depended on imported
    iron ore for almost three-quarters of their steel-making
    needs, and Sweden provided  more than 11 million
    tons of that in 1939 alone. After 1939, Sweden had to
    replace lost French iron ore as well. The economic
    inter-dependency between Swedish iron ore and German steel
    was strategic in every sense. Without sufficient
    steel, no tanks would roll; the Luftwaffe would be without
    planes; no guns, no artillery, in short, all materiel
    required to execute a major war would lack. -> more

Hunting Asian Tigers: Washington and
the 1997-98 Asia Shock
F. William Engdahl
    Once the East Asian Tiger economies had begun to open up
    to foreign capital, but well before they had adequate
    controls over possible abuses in place, hedge
    funds went on the attack. The secretive funds first
    targeted the weakest economy, Thailand. American
    speculator, George Soros, acted in secrecy and armed with
    an undisclosed credit line from a group of         
    international banks including Citigroup. They bet that
    Thailand would be forced to devalue the baht and break
    from the peg to the dollar. Soros, head of Quantum Fund,
    Julian Robertson, head of the Tiger Fund and         
    reportedly also the LTCM hedge fund, whose management
    included former Federal Reserve deputy, David Mullins,
    unleashed a huge speculative attack on the Thai currency
    and stocks. By June, Thailand had capitulated,         
    the currency was floated, and it was forced to turn to the
    IMF for help. In swift succession, the same hedge funds
    and banks hit the Philippines, Indonesia and then South
    Korea. They pocketed billions as the populations         
    sank into economic chaos and poverty. more
