The annual Bilderberger secret meeting of the 1% of the 1% comprising bankers, lawyers, industry titans, academics politicians and the super-rich policy setters is meeting this week at the Grove Hotel, a golf resort in Watford, Hertfordshire, UK.
Though the media scrambles to provide front-page coverage on celebrities (especially when they died or gets caught cheating on their spouse), plus enormous amounts of trivia, most of the media always deems this meeting of financial, academic, industrial and political elite of the heaviest of the heavyweights as not worthy of covering.

The group will discuss how the US and Europe can promote growth, the way ‘big data’ is changing ‘almost everything’, the challenges facing the continent of Africa and the threat of cyber warfare, according to an agenda published today.
Phi Beta Iota: As with Davos, there is nothing particularly ominous about the “public” meeting or its rather pedestrian agenda. Private meetings are another matter. Suffice to say that no one is talking about eradicating the ten high level threats to humanity, or creating a prosperous world at peace, a world that works for all….nor are the real heavy hitters attending this meeting, but rather the front ranks of the servant class — the “chief butlers” if you will, in banking and government, and a mix of has beens and wanna bees. This is a bit like having an annual party for the senior staff.
