And the fight back is gathering strength.

    If you want to see who’s behind the Public Private Partnerships the National Party are spouting about take a look at the World Bank website

    Their site looks pretty innocent until you watch a BBC clip about the World Bank and what they get up to. You can watch that clip at

    Reports by whistleblower insider Joseph Stigletz about the World Bank rigging the Russian elections. Joseph Stiglitz is Formerly Chief Economist of the World Bank and at the time of the alleged rigging of the Russian elections Stiglitz was in Clintons Cabinet as the presidents Cheif Economist.

    As you might be aware the world Bank is a private for profit Bank. Who benefits from their business i don’t really know but here you have a powerful multinational company thinking they have the right to rig a countries election and doing it.

    When you see the National Party want to follow World Bank protocol of privatisation i.e. Public Private partnerships well that puts a completely different spin on who the National Party represent.

    There is a video playlist on water privatisation in other countries at this link

      You can find out lots about how the money system works on

      Jim Stanford is one of Canada’s foremost Economists, he works for the unions, you can even download inportant chapters of his book from this site.

      He demystifies the money markets and shows what they are really about.

      And what it is about is clawing back the gains that were made around the world after the war when everyone benefited from monetry policy.

      The big boys don’t like sharing, they want it all for themselves again.
