The G7 nations engaged in a three-ring circus of obfuscation, while demonstrating a convincing display of their institutional policy bankruptcy, at their August 24-26 summit in Biarritz, France, where they sidestepped discussion of the real issues facing humanity, by avoiding any discussion of the single, defining matter before mankind: The irreversible bankruptcy of the entire London-run trans-Atlantic financial system. While the circus was underway in Biarritz, the real agenda was presented quietly, without much fanfare or publicity, in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, on August 22-24. There, at the annual meeting convened by the Kansas City Federal Reserve, a gang of central bankers and other financial swindlers called for a "regime change in monetary policy", in a desperate attempt to keep their empire intact. As described by the Schiller Institute President Helga Zepp-LaRouche, "The real story is that the Jackson Hole meeting declared a coup, what they themselves call a 'regime change in monetary policy'. They are openly demanding the issuance, by Central Banks, of 'helicopter money,' which would basically eliminate the last aspects of national sovereignty of governments, by giving the authority to the central banks to directly pump fiat money both into official state, but also private channels—and naturally, this is also supposed to all finance the Green Deal."
