In that The Economist (UK) has long been a mouthpiece for globalization and the Trilateral Commission in particular, their article is designed to be mentally disruptive and misleading on the progress of Technocracy. Truly, Fischer is the consummate Technocrat, but his presence on the world stage only proves that Technocracy is the goal of members of the Trilateral Commission. Are they all of a sudden impotent little puppies? No, they are closer to their endgame of total domination than ever before. ? TN Editor
In 2004 Stanley Fischer described the wonder he felt as an economics student in the 1960s. "You had a set of equations", he said, "that meant you could control the economy." Technocracy—the dream of scientific government by a caste of wise men—arose in the 20th century, as rapid change rendered the world unfathomably complex; in economics, it came of age in the Keynesian revolution of the 1930s. On September 6th, after a remarkably distinguished career in public service, Mr Fischer, an intellectual heir to Keynes, announced his imminent retirement as the vice-chairman of the Federal Reserve. It is tempting to see in his departure the end of the era and the ideal of technocracy.
