Collective Power I

Now that you've had a chance to look at the list. Remember this basic rule, money dictates power. The more money you have, the more power you have.

Here are eight who are considered rich because of hereditary inheritance from decades of wealth.
But I know of others who are not on this list and I want to list them first because they have held wealth for centuries.

Pay attention to the businesses and industry that they own.

The Warburg family

Warburg family is a prominent American family and financial dynasty of German Jewish descent, noted for their varied accomplishments in biochemistry, botany, political activism, economics, investment banking, law, physics, classical music, art history, pharmacology, physiology, finance, private equity and philanthropy.[1]

They originated as the Venetian Jewish del Banco family, one of the wealthiest Venetian families in the early 1500s.[2] Following restrictions imposed on banking and the Jewish community, they fled to Bologna, and thence to Warburg, in Germany, in the 16th century, after which they took their name.

The family re-established itself in Altona, near Hamburg in the 17th century, and it was there that M. M. Warburg & Co. was established in 1798, among the oldest still existing investment banks in the world. Other banks created by members of the family include: M.M.Warburg & Co., Warburg Pincus, S. G. Warburg & Co. (becoming UBS Warburg).

The Rockefeller family /ˈrɒkɨfɛlər/
The Rockefeller family is an American industrial, political, and banking family that made one of the world's largest fortunes in the oil business during the late 19th and early 20th centuries, with John D. Rockefeller and his brother William Rockefeller primarily through Standard Oil.[1] The family is also known for its long association with and control of Chase Manhattan Bank.[2] They are considered to be one of the most powerful families, if not the most powerful family,[3] in the history of the United States.

I just wanted to give you some idea of the early history and wealth that has dominated our cultures and society. Keeping in mind that money dictates power, power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely.

There has emerged out of several families a group who to this day is notoriously infamous and just as mysterious too.

They go by the name of,
"The Bilderbergers." Here is a little background on them, but you can read more at: http://www.jeremiahproject.com/newworldorder/nworder04.html

The Bilderbergers

Even though many still deny their very existence, the fact is... in 1954 the most powerful men in the world met for the first time under the auspices of the Dutch royal crown and the Rockefeller family in the luxurious Hotel Bilderberg of the small Dutch town of Oosterbeck. For an entire weekend they debated the future of the world. When it was over, they decided to meet once every year to exchange ideas and analyze international affairs.

They named themselves the Bilderberg Club.

Since then, they have gathered yearly in a luxurious hotel somewhere in the world arrogantly plotting the subversion and silent takeover of constitutional governments everywhere.

Their goal is a World Government run exclusively by their hand-picked puppets.

Bilderberg founding member and, for 30 years, a steering committee member, Denis Healey said, "To say we were striving for a one-world government is exaggerated, but not wholly unfair. Those of us in Bilderberg felt we couldn't go on forever fighting one another for nothing and killing people and rendering millions homeless. So we felt that a single community throughout the world would be a good thing."

My conclusion for this page is that, money is inherited and so is power. But power is created through manipulating, people, places and things. So if you've been rich from the beginnings of time, than, scheming, competition and greed all plays a part of the growth and successes of a rich family.
