ΠΟΙΟΣ ΕΙΝΑΙ Ο Dominique Strauss-Kahn?

IMF: It’s A Beginning Of Global Governance

Of Sephardic and Azhkenazic Jewish origin, he was born in 1949 in a wealthy Paris neighbourhood, son of a legal tax lawyer and member of the Masonic order Grand Orient de France and of a Russo-Tunisian journalist. During the 1970s, Dr. Strauss-Kahn was an academic, having obtained a degree in public law and a PhD and an agrégation in economics.

In his youth he joined the Union of Communist Students (Union des étudiants communistes, UEC), which is part of the Mouvement Jeunes Communistes de France (MJCF, Movement of Young Communists of France), and which is close to the French Communist Party. He subsequently joined the Centre d’études, de recherches et d’éducation socialiste (Center on Socialist Education Studies and Research, CERES), and later became involved with the Socialist Party, led by his friend Lionel Jospin, also founding Socialisme et judaïsme.

He became an elected deputy in 1986, then Chairman of the National Assembly Committee on Finances, and then again Minister for Industry and Foreign trade. Defeated in the elections of 1993, he was appointed Chairman of the Groupe des experts du PS (Group of Experts of the Socialist Party), founded a law firm (DSK Consultants), and worked as a business lawyer.

But not for long. The following year, Raymond Lévy, director of Renault, invited him to join the Cercle de l’Industrie, a Brussels-based industry lobby. Billionaire Vincent Bolloré and Louis Schweitzer entered his circle of friends. Bolloré is a well-known corporate raider and industrialist with media interests and substantial positions in the economies of Ivory Coast, Gabon, Cameroon, and Congo, and also a long-standing friend of Nicolas Sarkozy. Schweitzer was Lévy’s successor at Renault, of which he was CEO until 2005, and also Chairman of AstraZeneca, and non-executive director of BNP Paribas, Electricité de France, Volvo AB, and L’Oréal.

As Minister of Economics he implemented a wide privatisation and a partial deregulation programme, despite this running against the Socialist Party’s official ideology. An increase in GDP and reduction of public debt resulted in personal popularity. In the late 1990s he joined, as finance minister, Lionel Jospin’s socialist government, ‘responsible for steering France towards the era of the Euro’.

He supported the infamous European Constitution of 2005, so arrogantly promoted by bureaucrats and politicians at the time (there was no real examination, just promotion, despite its wide-ranging powers). Said constitution incorporated the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union, which banned eugenics, prohibited collective expulsions, guaranteed the right to asylum, and adopted totalitarian equality and humanism as a core principle.

As head of the IMF, Dr. Strauss-Kahn proposed giving Special Drawing Rights a stronger role as a method of stabilising the global monetary system, and as a possible replacement for the U.S. dollar as world reserve currency. Some have seen this as a move towards a world currency, consistent with Dr. Strauss-Kahn’s earlier championing of the Euro.

The BBC profiles him as a man of ‘easy charm’ who ‘seduce[s] with words’.

No doubt Kevin MacDonald would find Dr. Strauss-Kahn a case worthy of his attention, but, that aside, the picture that emerges here is clearly that of a typical ‘champagne socialist’: a globalist, former communist, who nevertheless stays in luxury hotels; rubs shoulders with powerful industrialists, billionaires, and heads of state; and lives a fabulously privileged and rarefied lifestyle, out of the public purse—a suave, elegant, smooth-talking philanderer, aligned with a political party whose policy is to take from the talented and hard-working in order to give to the talentless and the indolent, who all the same draws a six-figure salary (plus an opaque pension scheme), in a nearly all-powerful position obtained through presidential favour.

I doubt any of my readers will be surprised by any of this. All the same, it bears highlighting, for the fact that a man with such obvious character flaws, with such glaring contradictions between stated ideology and real-world behaviour, has been so handsomely rewarded by the system, funded out of our collective and individual pockets, is symptomatic of the system’s level of corruption. In a non-corrupt system, where character was as important as ability, such a person would not have been able to talk his way undetected into the highest echelons of international finance; such a person would have been weeded out long before. Champaigne socialists—Bill Clinton and Tony Blair are famous examples—are but one of the various miasmic bacteria that contaminate the Western body politic in our Iron Age. Indeed, the French establishment now worry about the effect this this affair could have at a time of unprecedented distrust for politicians.

Criminal Court Complaint: “The People of the State of New York vs. Dominique Strauss-Kahn”

Strauss-Kahn: Θέλει το «νόμισμα του ΔΝΤ» να «εκθρονίσει» το δολάριο

Έκκληση για τη δημιουργία ενός νέου παγκόσμιου νομίσματος, που θα αμφισβητήσει την ηγεμονία του δολαρίου και θα βοηθήσει να μειωθούν οι οικονομικές ανισορροπίες στο μέλλον, απεύθυνε ο γενικός διευθυντής του Διεθνούς Νομισματικού Ταμείου, Dominique Strauss-Kahn.

Μιλώντας στην Ουάσιγκτον, ο Strauss-Kahn πρότεινε τη χρήση των Ειδικών Τραβηχτικών Δικαιωμάτων (Special Drawing Rights – SDRs) του Διεθνούς Νομισματικού Ταμείου ως εναλλακτικής λύσης έναντι του δολαρίου τόσο στο εμπόριο όσο και στα συναλλαγματικά αποθεματικά των κεντρικών τραπεζών.

«Η χρήση των SDRs για να τιμολογηθεί το διεθνές εμπόριο και τα στοιχεία ενεργητικού, θα έδινε ένα ‘μαξιλάρι’ απέναντι στη μεταβλητότητα των ισοτιμιών», εξήγησε και πρόσθεσε ότι «εκδίδοντας ομόλογα σε SDRs, θα δημιουργούνταν μια νέα επενδυτική κατηγορία για τα συναλλαγματικά αποθεματικά».

Το ΔΝΤ δημοσίευσε μάλιστα μία μελέτη που στηρίζει την άποψη του Strauss-Kahn, καθώς συγκέντρωσε τους καλύτερους οικονομολόγους του κόσμου για να συζητήσουν το μέλλον του παγκόσμιου νομισματικού συστήματος.
