The “surprise” announcement that Canadian Mark Carney is to be appointed Governor of the Bank of England means that the 2012 Bilderberg attendee completes Goldman Sachs’ virtual domination over all the major economies of Europe.
Carney’s appointment has come as a shock to many who expected current BoE deputy governor Paul Tucker to get the nod, but it’s not a surprise for us given that we forecast back in April Carney would be headhunted for the position.
Carney is a former 13-year veteran of Goldman Sachs and was involved in the 1998 Russian financial crisis which was exacerbated by Goldman advising Russia while simultaneously betting against the country’s ability to pay its debt.
Carney’s appointment arrives just six months after he attended the 2012 Bilderberg conference in Chantilly, Virginia, an annual confab of over a hundred of the most powerful people on the planet who have routinely flexed their kingmaker status.

Carney’s status as a foreign national is cited as one of the reasons his selection came as a shock, but being Canadian he is after all a “subject” of the Queen of England, who confirmed his appointment after he was recommended to her by Prime Minister David Cameron.
