Secret meetings between the Elite: a new trend or old habit ?

The elite of the American rich got together again in secret on May 5th at the Rockefeller university Presidential room. Present were: Warren Buffett, Bill Gates, David Rockefeller Jr., Oprah Winfrey, George Soros, Ted Turner, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, and many more. The estimated combined net worth of those at the meeting tops a staggering $200 billion.

IrishCentral.com reported on this first, days after the event.

They were alleged to be meeting to comment on the uncertain financial future and to discuss their philanthropic activities.

I find that slightly doubtful: why all the secrecy if they are discussing charity ? The lowest 20 percent of the U.S. population by income gives over twice as much as a percentage of their income as the wealthiest, highly mediatised 20 percent without resorting to media black-out secret meetings.

It seems that every day more aspects of our collective future are to be determined by financial supermen in undemocratic, undisclosed conclaves.

There is nothing new, historically, about the rich and powerful discussing the world’s fate behind closed doors – the only difference now being the huge increase in the number of people affected by their ideologies and decisions.
