Post"Invisible Hand"; from Ric Mauricio (John Eipper, USA, 07/05/17 5:11 am)

The Invisible Hand? (See John Heelan, July 4th.) Is this the beginning of a discussion of conspiracy theories, Bilderberg and the Masons?
JE asked, "Isn't the Invisible Hand supposed to be...invisible?" Indeed, it is invisible. Goldman Sachs is but a visible face of this "invisible hand." It is the strategy of "hiding in plain sight." So if one were to look at the power shareholders of GS, one can see where the power is. And believe me, it is an intertwined network of power brokers of the world, extremely challenging to decipher, even for this forensic analyst. One can say that we only see the tip of the iceberg. We see what they allow us to see. But the "invisible hand" is merely following the Golden Rule: He who has the gold, makes the rules.
So who is the "invisible hand" that controls the bank that exerts great influence on the European Central Bank? JE got close. Very close. It is not Qatar, but Saudi Arabia, through a shell company in the Cayman Islands, controlled by a royal prince.
JE comments: Does the Invisible Hand have a puppetmaster, in a conspiracy-theory fashion? We probably need a refresher course on Smith's concept, but wasn't his Hand beyond the control of individual human actions?
And a happy (belated) July 4th to you, Ric!
