The Council on Foreign Relations and Goldman Sachs have made their support of Hilary Clinton very clear. Google’s search engine is trying to keep such support a secret. Saudi Arabia’s massive influence over oil markets and petrodollar stability, however, doesn’t give them the power to be overt in such support:
Based on this this fear, I would like to propose an idea called the shadow emperor hedge.
Below is a chart providing a high-level view of the countries that spend the most on defense.
What we see is a very significant gap for other powers to spend as much as America does on defense. This is mostly due to America controlling and protecting the interests of the reserve currency.
Next, I will point out that, with the passing of the Citizens United ruling, corporations are allowed to spend as much as they want to influence American elections. Saudi Arabia has made it very clear that clean energy technology and fracking are significant threats to its power. In fact, they’ve already utilized Citizens United to funded opposition to Democratic and Republican senators in Missouri and Wisconsin.
Foreign powers will utilize Citizens United to pay tech companies to steer the American electorate into supporting state policies that only benefit the foreign powers. This allows a foreign power to achieve influence over their regional peers without having to increase defense spending since American military assets are steered via state policies.
As long as American military spending is geared towards reserve currency preservation, the marriage between foreign powers, tech media, and Citizens United will flourish.
