Today on the radio I was listening to the news. It said that some countries were hoping Iran would be barred from making global financial transactions in response to the progression of their nuclear program. This could be accomplished through the organization, SWIFT.
SWIFT is a member-owned cooperative through which the financial world conducts its business operations with speed, certainty and confidence. More than 9,700 banking organisations, securities institutions and corporate customers in 209 countries trust us every day to exchange millions of standardised financial messages.
The news report said that 80% of the world’s economic transactions go through SWIFT. Therefore Iranian businessmen would need to carry boxes of cash to do any global deals. Online transactions wouldn’t be an option apparently.
Personally I wasn’t even aware of SWIFT. We have the United Nations, the World Health Organization, the International Monetary Fund, the G8, the G20, Central Banks, SWIFT… anyway it’s clear that a global government is on the way. The tools and the institutions are already in place. The next step will be a global tax and then the elimination of currencies.
I think so.
