We all love pointing the finger, but not at ourselves. Wanna get at the truth? You're probably better off starting out with something like Davis Graeber's Debt: the first 5000 years - but just to pique your interest, star reviewing team D&D refer us to the Forbes article "The Four Companies That Control the 147 Companies That Own Everything": in a nutshell, the real power to control the world lies with four companies: McGraw-Hill, which owns Standard & Poor's; Northwestern Mutual, which owns Russell Investments, the index arm of which runs the benchmark Russell 1,000 and Russell 3,000; CME Group which owns 90% of Dow Jones Indexes; and Barclay's, which took over Lehman Brothers and its Lehman Aggregate Bond Index, the dominant world bond fund index. Together, these four firms dominate...the world's money. Deep doodoo indeed
