Peter Phillips has intensely studied the intricate working of the top financial elite and has gained a unique perspective of what caused the great wealth inequality which has beset the world’s economies. He found that the core of these trans-nationalist capitalists consists of only thirteen firms who maintain their control through propaganda, wars and legislation as discussed in this interview with George Noory.
