Who is profiting from the present planned global financial crisis?
The EU? "Times of economic difficulty have accelerated integration. The EU needs to move beyond past failures" - although just now the EU rather seems to be dissolving.
Who profits from the collapse of the present financial order to create a new, possibly
gold-based order as advocated by the CFR-illuminist, former FED-boss Alan Greenspan? Who is to "police" the coming new financial world order? The IMF?
"What has been most important of this crisis in terms of global governance, has been the ability for central bankers to operate very quickly together"  (US Council on Foreign Relations).

On Sept. 22, 2008, Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur said on the floor of the House (excerpt): Let’s play Wall Street Bailout.
Rule one: Rush the decision. Time the game to fall in the week before Congress is set to adjourn and just six weeks before a historic election so your opponents will be preoccupied, pressured, distracted, and in a hurry.
Rule two: Disarm the public through fear. Warn that the entire global financial system will collapse and the world will fall into another Great Depression. Control the media enough to ensure that the public will not notice this. Bailout will indebt them for generations, taking from them trillions of dollars they earned and deserve to keep.
Rule three: Hide from the public and most of the Congress just who is arranging this deal. Communicate with the public through leaks to media insiders. Limit any open congressional hearings. Communicate with Congress via private teleconferencing calls. Heighten political anxiety by contacting each political party separately. Treat members of Congress condescendingly, telling them that the matter is so complex that they must rely on those few insiders who really do know what’s going on.
Rule four: Divert attention and keep people confused. Manage the news cycle so Congress and the public have no time to examine who destroyed the prudent banking system that served America so well for 60 years after the financial meltdown of the 1920s.
Rule five: Always keep in mind the goal is to privatize gains to a few and socialize loss to the many. For 30 years in one financial scandal after another, Wall Street game masters have kept billions of dollars of their gain and shifted their losses to American taxpayers. Once this bailout is in place, the greed game will begin again.

This inspiring speech and Ms. Kaptur´s fascinating body language can be seen on this video.

On Sept 19, 2008 the blog ”Radio Utopie pointed to the following in an excellent survey.

The Paulson bail-out plan as published in the New York Times  comprises some very thought-provoking elements (excerpt - in parentheses my comments)
Sec. 2. …The Secretary is authorized to purchase, and to make and fund commitments to purchase, on such terms and conditions as determined by the Secretary, mortgage-related assets from any financial institution having its headquarters in the United States.
(b) The Secretary is authorized to take such actions as the Secretary deems necessary to carry out the authorities in this Act, including, without limitation:
(1) appointing such employees as may be required …;
(2) entering into contracts…. without regard to any other provision of law regarding public contracts;
(3) designating financial institutions as financial agents of the Government, and they shall perform all such reasonable duties related to this Act as financial agents of the Government as may be required of them; (The FED? Goldman Sachs? Morgan Stanley? J.P. Morgan?)
(a)The Secretary may, at any time, exercise any rights received in connection with mortgage-related assets purchased under this Act.
(b) The Secretary shall have authority to manage mortgage-related assets purchased under this Act.
(c) The Secretary may, at any time, upon terms and conditions and at prices determined by the Secretary, sell, or enter into securities loans.
Sec. 7. For the costs of administering those authorities, the Secretary may use the proceeds of the sale of any securities issued , including the payment of administrative expenses.
(Letting the criminal Wall Street bankers manage taxpayer money once more is letting the fox guard the hen house)
Sec. 8. Decisions by the Secretary pursuant to the authority of this Act are non-reviewable and committed to agency discretion, and may not be reviewed by any court of law or any administrative agency. ("What I do with taxpayer money is not for the searchlight of publicity. And it is so criminal that I don´t want to be held responsible for it!")

Paulson is taking financial dictatorship on behalf of his illuminist masters in the Council on Foreign Relation, the Bilderberg Group and Goldman Sachs the CEO and Chairman of the Board he was until he became Secretary of the Treasury.

And he will give the Wall Street criminals taxpayer money for their valueless securities which they have already once emptied of values  as well as probably reengage that ilk to manage the real estate of Americans which he buys for a song 
Finanzblatt 7 Oct, 2008: As the Fed announced it wants unsecured short-term bonds, to buy so-called commercial papers in the future, and make liquidity available to the issuants. The measure is unheard-of in the nearly 100 years of history of the Fed, because Commercial Papers due to the crisis on the financial markets have often been made valueless.

The Mail Online 2 Oct, 2008: Pressure was today mounting on Gordon Brown to clarify his drastic £1.9trillion bank bail-out designed to restore confidence in the City.
The plan was unveiled last night and involves raising the personal savings guarantee to £50,000. The Prime Minister has taken the unusual step of hiring bankers UBS and N M Rothschild & Sons (both Rothscild banks)  to advise him on a possible bail-out deal, independent of Chancellor Alistair Darling.

This is the Hegelian  recipe to introduce the New World Order
1. Thesis: Create a financial crisis by quickly lowering the interest rates and letting everybody without means buy real estate and other goods by means of cheap credits. Thereby, demand and so prices will inevitably rise and bring the bankers a lot of money. Not only in the US this was a deliberate policy. In his election campaign 2007 Sarkozy is told to have recommended the poorest French to have plenty of mortgages, complaining that France was much too little endebted!!! 
2. Antithesis: Withdraw credits, withdraw values from the real estate funds and raise interest rates quickly. The ensuing plummeting of bad loan and house values will bring about a financial crisis that can be paid for by the taxpayers and deepened and extended into a real-economic crisis by the mark-to-market rule making it impossible for banks to lend to each other and so to their customers.
3. Synthesis: During this worldwide crisis everyone will call for state expropriation of the banks and property - or they will be simply necessary. This change can be enforced by illuminist political rulers (Henry Paulson/Fed-chairman Bernanke) by rules giving them and the New World Order dictatorship by enforced law (death threats to Congress):

The Synthesis is interesting: Int. Herald Tribune 26 Sept: British Prime Minister Gordon Brown called Friday for "a new global financial order" to resolve the financial crisis currently roiling world markets - see his New World Order Speech on the right margin of this blog, too.

The failures of modern global capitalism have been brutally exposed in recent months.  Opinion is now hardening around the case for a new global architecture to enforce rules.

Former (EU trade Commissioner) Peter Mandelson: new global solutions are needed because "the machinery of global economic governance barely exists", adding: "It is time for a Bretton Woods for this century." 
In essence, any organisation with the power to police the global economy would have to include representatives of every major country – a United Nations of economic regulation.

Danny Gabay, a former Bank of England economist who now works for Fathom Consulting, suggested the answer might already be staring us in the face, in the form of the Bank for International Settlements (BIS), the umbrella organisation for the committee that came up with the sensible Basle II Accord.

The BIS (Bank for International Settlement – proposed to be the regulator of world finance)
Andrew Hitchcock : Bis is a Rothschild Bank. In his "History of the Money Changers" he describes the names of the Rothschild agents founding the BIS in 1930. And he quotes Bill Clinton´s mentor, prof. Carroll Quigley:" The powers of financial capitalism had (a) far reaching (plan), nothing less than to create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole This system was to be controlled in a feudalist fashion by the central banks of the world acting in concert.
The apex of the system was to be the Bank For International Settlements in Basel, Switzerland.

Wikipedia: Bank for International Settlements (or BIS) is an international organization of central banks.

To be clear: Suggestions are now being made to make the Rothschild BIS the regulator of world economy – making the dreams of  Amschel Mayer Rothschild (1773-1855), who in 1838 said: "Permit me to issue and control the money of a nation, and I care not who makes its laws."

As Markus Angelicus (1997) writes in his excellent survey of Rothschild´s control  of the world´s gold:  "If the Rothschilds, through the LBMA operations, are effectively cornering the world’s gold supply they would undoubtedly be in a prime position to benefit from a currency crisis - which they and Soros undoubtedly expect, given Soros’s claims that the Asian, and thus by implication all fiat currencies, are inherently unsustainable. This crisis of sustainability is already engaged in Asia and will undoubtedly wash over Europe, England and the U.S. And who recently announced another bailout package? "
No one knows where the Gold of the USA (apparently not in Fort Knox) and Norway is.

But here is an interesting and competent explanation for the fact that Rothschild left the LBMA in 2004:"Another possible reason for Rothschild's withdrawal is a conviction that the better risk/reward ratio is found in buying gold and silver for vault storage than in trading them on the LBMA". For Rothschild also declares to continue its mining activities!!

Enforcing gold standard by very rude means, because money supply thereby is easily controlled, is an old Rothschild strategy. The 1896 presidential elections were lost by the Rothschild opponent over this topic.
The Telegraph, 8 Oct 2008 : J K Galbraith wrote in 1954 about the Great Wall Street Crash in 1929: “Men have been swindled by other men on many occasions. The autumn of 1929 was, perhaps, the first occasion when men succeeded on a large scale in swindling themselves. As now, too few understood this. Many who foresaw disaster kept quiet. There was a conspiracy of silence. “The foolish thus [had] the field to themselves.”

In fact, the financial New World Order is already functioning, 6 cental banks lowering their interest rates in a concerted action on Oct. 8, 2008.

Here is an excerpt of what the President of the US Council on Foreign Relations, i.e. the body which rules the US and so the world, Richard Haas, wrote in 2006 on the New World Order:
"New mechanisms are needed for regional and global governance that include actors other than states.

States must be prepared to cede some sovereignty to world bodies.

Some governments are prepared to give up elements of sovereignty to address the threat of global climate change etc.

Globalisation thus implies that sovereignty is not only becoming weaker in reality, but that it needs to become weaker."

And it certainly will be - due to financial world governance.
