OB: Now we know - the game of economics and finance is rigged

In this episode of Practical Economics, John Berling Hardy explains how the economy, and society, are driven by the actions of an elite group that understand and orchestrate what happens, ensuring they always come out on top. The current global recession only makes sense when explained in the context of someone orchestrating things. These same principals of unsporting gamesmanship also apply on the level of small groups, where someone is always taking unfair advantage of others. Understanding that this game exists, and how it is played, is an important part of protecting ourselves and our investments.
