- A University of Zurich study 'proves' that a small group of companies - mainly banks - wields huge power over the global economy.
The study is the first to look at all 43,060 transnational corporations and the web of ownership between them - and created a 'map' of 1,318 companies at the heart of the global economy. The study found that 147 companies formed a 'super entity' within this, controlling 40 per cent of its wealth. All own part or all of one another. Most are banks - the top 20 includes Barclays and Goldman Sachs. But the close connections mean that the network could be vulnerable to collapse.

There is something extraordinarily interesting about this study. What is interesting is that this was essentially already being accomplished with far more detail by a man by the name of Mark Lombardi. Most people don't know about him, which he was an artist that turned conspiracy theories into a visual art. The information was so basic and creatively woven that even a child could understand the story presented by his art. From my understanding, prior to his suicide, he was applying the financial transactions between entities etc.. Indeed, he never finished, which some believe he didn't commit suicide, but was murdered due to the potential revelations.
Here is a piece of his work:
You can read a little about his work (here)
