Exclusive Interview w/ Guido Preparata:

The Business As Usual Behind The Slaughter

bank-vaultIn this exclusive interview for Asia Times Online, the economist Guido Preparata highlights the history of the first half of the 20th Century from a rather unusual perspective. He shows how the Anglo-American policy was designed right from the beginning to eliminate Germany as an obstacle to Western domination aspirations. The result: a division of Eurasia along a specific major fault line. Later on, Preparata also talks about critical aspects of the current state of affairs in global finance, economics, and politics. He says: “It is the quest for power that drives history, not economics.”

Die üblichen Geschäfte hinter dem Gemetzel

Der Ökonom Guido Preparata (“Conjuring Hitler“) hebt in diesem Exklusiv-Interview einige historische Sachverhalte des 20. Jahrhunderts von einer eher ungewöhnlichen Perspektive hervor. So zeigt er beispielsweise auf, dass die anglo-amerikanische Politik von Beginn an vorsah, Deutschland als Gefahr für westliche Herrschaftsansprüche auszuschalten. Im späteren Verlauf spricht Preparata über wichtige Aspekte des gegenwärtigen Zustands von Finanzen, Ökonomie und Politik. “Es ist das Streben nach Macht, das die Geschichte antreibt, nicht die Wirtschaft.“
