History offers many insights into our financial world but leaves out the impact of the Rothschild family in our society. Of course, while in history class, the teachers focus was on the topics of wars and victories. What they left out could change the way our youth views the world of finances. Instead, students must enroll in an economics class or business class and shuffle their way through the lessons, preparing for the future. Maybe we should start teaching a broader view of history that goes beyond who won and who lost. This way, we learn who was dealing the cards at the table behind the scene, that is the money masters.
The Rothschild Family Legacy
You cannot have a war without funding, and this money has to come from somewhere which in most cases are privately owned banks.
To the victor go the spoils. The victor also inherits the loser debts, which they had to pay off as well. So who is the real winner in war? The soldiers on the front lines taking down the enemy or the bankers on the sidelines betting on the outcome? As the famous conjecture goes, the Rothschild family had their game plan in motion while Napoleon fought on the battlefield. While he was defeated and sent into exile, he eventually escaped, and after winning over the troops sent to re-capture him, he returned Paris a hero. Now it was King Louis’s turn to flee into exile, and Napoleon took over the French throne.
During this time, privately owned banks were funding both sides of the war. This would appear to be an ethical dilemma that they agreed to support the enemy of his brother. While it may not always be the case when it comes to money, there may be little concern about ethics. An excellent example of this is insider trading within the stock markets, which is illegal.
While the brave men faced their opponents on the battlefield back in London, the belief is that Nathan Rothschild was planning his strategy of attack to gain control over the British stock-and bond market. While it is uncertain whether this story is accurate, and the Rothschild denies any involvement, the story speculations still circulate today as to the extent of their participation.
As the story goes, Nathan Rothschild had in place a man he could trust on the north end of the battlefield, which was close to the English Channel. That moment, the battle’s outcome could determine the agent who delivered the news to Nathan Rothschild. This news came twenty-four hours before Britain’s Duke of Wellington’s courier read it.
By having a communication network in place, Rothschild seized the moment and began selling, leading others to believe that Wellington has lost all their shares. The mayhem continued as stocks and bonds were sold, and prices. At that right moment, Rothschild and his partners are said to have started buying up everything as quickly as they could. Of course, this was supposed to be done under the wire through other agents. By the time it was all said and done, Rothschild and his partners held control over the bond market and the Bank of England. It makes one wonder how the banking system may have influenced many other events in history.
