Should Any ‘Spooky Dude’ Be Allowed To Recast The Global Economy?

Liberty? Sovereignty? Are they quaint notions? The Business & Media Institute reports:

Two years ago, George Soros said he wanted to reorganize the entire global economic system. In two short weeks, he is going to start – and no one seems to have noticed.

On April 8, a group he’s funded with $50 million is holding a major economic conference and Soros’s goal for such an event is to “establish new international rules” and “reform the currency system.” It’s all according to a plan laid out in a Nov. 4, 2009, Soros op-ed calling for “a grand bargain that rearranges the entire financial order.”

The event is bringing together “more than 200 academic, business and government policy thought leaders’ to repeat the famed 1944 Bretton Woods gathering that helped create the World Bank and International Monetary Fund. Soros wants a new ‘multilateral system,” or an economic system where America isn’t so dominant.

While stridently resisting the whole tinfoil hat scene, let me put it this way to any conservative political hopefuls who want traction for 2012. Frame your economic positions in terms of:

  • Protecting US sovereignty from international economic undermining.
  • Restoring sanity to fiscal policy.
  • Actually balancing the budget and eliminating deficit spending.

Anyone who can speak coherently about these issues has the election half won.
