There is no shortage of blogs, books, Youtube videos and so-called experts on this subject so I will just link to a post on the "Burning Platform" from January this year that gives a nice summary.
This is a central tenet of the new world order conspiracy movement. Hence, this blog needs to look carefully at what underpins this classic conspiracy and of course it links to class war. The wealthy elite conspiracy is closer to mainstream economic analysis than most and it has gained serious traction given the rise and rise of Max Keiser and others (more on Max later).
In this post the author provides solid proof that "a core group of wealthy elitists is pulling the strings".
The beauty of this conspiracy is that it brings together so many threads - Bilderberg meetings, G20, Freemasons, Illuminati, the works.
Did anyone think it was really any other way?

Who Runs The World? Solid Proof That A Core Group Of Wealthy Elitists Are Pulling The Strings. Does a shadowy group of obscenely wealthy elitists control the world? Do men and women with enormous amounts of money really run the world from behind the scenes? The answer might surprise you.So far so good. So how weathly are these people. Very by the looks of it:
When I am talking about the ultra-wealthy, I am not just talking about people that have a few million dollars. As you will see later in this article, the ultra-wealthy have enough money sitting in offshore banks to buy all of the goods and services produced in the United States during the course of an entire year and still be able to pay off the entire U.S. national debt. That is an amount of money so large that it is almost incomprehensible.That figure is so large that I find it almost incomprehensive.
So what do these ultra-wealthy people own? No surprises here - the banks.
But the ultra-wealthy don’t just sit on all of that wealth. They use some of it to dominate the affairs of the nations. The ultra-wealthy own virtually every major bank and every major corporation on the planet. They use a vast network of secret societies, think tanks and charitable organizations to advance their agendas and to keep their members in line.Of course the banks are not enough. Next has to be the media and perhaps more surprisingly also a number of the worlds institutions.
They control how we view the world through their ownership of the media and their dominance over our education system. They fund the campaigns of most of our politicians and they exert a tremendous amount of influence over international organizations such as the United Nations, the IMF, the World Bank and the WTO. When you step back and take a look at the big picture, there is little doubt about who runs the world. It is just that most people don’t want to admit the truth.This blog post lists the top 25 banks at the centre of the global elite conspiracy.
It is worthwhile including the famous Rockefeller quotation to give an idea of the smoke that is often used to shout "fire".
So who runs the world?
They do. In fact, they even admit as much.
David Rockefeller wrote the following in his 2003 book entitled “Memoirs”….
“For more than a century, ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized incidents such as my encounter with Castro to attack the Rockefeller family for the inordinate influence they claim we wield over American political and economic institutions. Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as ‘internationalists’ and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure — one world, if you will. If that is the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it.”
