Billionaire bankrolls group warning about “income inequality” leading to riots
The organization behind warnings this week that the wealthy are buying secret hideaways in preparation for riots and civil unrest was founded by billionaire elitist George Soros.
In two separate interviews, economist Robert Johnson revealed that the mega-rich were buying land and airstrips in remote places in order to prepare for a coming social uprising which will be caused by growing income inequality.
“I know hedge fund managers all over the world who are buying airstrips and farms in places like New Zealand because they think they need a getaway,” said Johnson.
In a subsequent interview, Johnson expanded on his comments, telling RT, “A lot of wealthy and powerful people are quite afraid right now – they see us on an unstable trajectory….As the system doesn’t have proper resources, as it doesn’t represent people, things are getting more and more dangerous as say Ferguson, Missouri brings to bear.”
Johnson is president of the Institute of New Economic Thinking, an organization founded and bankrolled by none other than George Soros, the 26th richest person on the planet with a net worth of around $24 billion dollars.
“Liberal billionaire George Soros had given $50 million to The Institute for New Economic Thinking, and used that group in 2011 to host a conference that focused on “new multilateral system” of economics,” writes Mike Ciandella. “According to an INET press release from 2012, Soros “agreed to augment his foundation support of INET” with an additional $50 million.”
It’s somewhat ironic that the group warning about income inequality causing civil unrest is funded by one of the richest men in the world, but the veracity of the claim that the super wealthy are buying remote hideaways is only bolstered by this connection.Soros has also repeatedly warned of the consequences of wealth inequality, most recently cautioning how the European Central Bank’s decision to begin a €1.14 trillion quantitative easing (QE) program will have serious political consequences.
Other plutocrats are also busy pushing the narrative of wealth inequality and the need for more regulation as part of a broader talking point which centers on “the capitalist threat to capitalism”.In reality, as Brandon Smith explains, this is merely part of the process of justifying a new financial system which will see power further centralized into the hands of a de facto economic world government.
“The international banking cult has NO INTEREST whatsoever in saving the current system, despite the assumptions of many market analysts,” writes Smith, adding, “Their only goal has been to stave off the visible effects of the crisis until a new system is ready (psychologically justified in the public consciousness) to be put into place.”“The concept of banker governance will be promoted as the best and only solution,” notes Smith, underscoring how the public will be conditioned to support centralized financial control as the only possible solution to future economic shocks.
We have also previously outlined why the political class is perfectly content to engineer and exploit social unrest as a means of paving the way for the IMF and other global financial institutions to seize control of national economies, strip economic independence and reshape the entire financial system.
