OWS Revolution Reasons! Capitalism Economy Exposed! Scientific Study: The Network of Global Corporate Control Download



Revealed – the capitalist network that runs the world
AS PROTESTS against financial power sweep around the world this week, science confirmed the protesters reasons (our) about the financial system. An analysis of the relationships between 43,000 transnational corporations has identified a relatively small group of companies, mainly banks, with disproportionate power over the global economy.

Sample of the international financial network, where the nodes represent
major financial institutions belonging to the core and the links give the

strongest existing relations among them; node colors indicate different
geographical areas: EU (red), US (blue), other countries (green); the
width and the darkness of the links show their weight; only the most
prominent links are shown; the network shows a high connectivity,
with many mutual cross-shareholdings as well as longer cycles; this
indicates that the financial sector is strongly interdependent, which
make the network vulnerable to instability, see [1] or [2].

The study's assumptions have attracted some criticism, but complex systems analysts contacted by New Scientist say it is a unique effort to untangle control in the global economy. Pushing the analysis further, they say, could help to identify ways of making global capitalism more stable.

The idea that a few bankers, less than 1%, control a large chunk of the global economy  its the science confirmation of what we the Global World Revolution,  May 15 International aka October 15, Democracy Now, Democracia Verdadeira Já, Democracia Real Ya, Uncut, Attack, Arab Spring, Icelandic Kitchnaware Revolution and New York's Occupy Wall Street movements and our brothers, the anticapitalist protesters elsewhere around advocates, that less than 1%, the greedy people, are the cause of the world problems.

The study, by a trio of complex systems theorists at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich, is the first to go beyond ideology to empirically identify such a network of power. It combines the mathematics long used to model natural systems with comprehensive corporate data to map ownership among the world's transnational corporations (TNCs).


The study, called "The Network of Global Corporate Control", published on Cornell University Library, doned by: Stefania Vitali, James B. Glattfelder, and Stefano Battiston, (all,  Chair of Systems Design at ETH Zurich, Kreuzplatz 5, 8032 Zurich, Switzerland, corresponding author, email: sbattiston@ethz.ch), show us a big and so so complex web of financial control,that ends in a tremendous Octopus of few families that rules the world.

Previous studies have found that a few TNCs own large chunks of the world's economy, but they included only a limited number of companies and omitted indirect ownerships, but we could see how this affected the global economy - whether it made it more or less stable, for instance.

The Zurich team can. From Orbis 2007, a database listing 37 million companies and investors worldwide, they pulled out all 43,060 TNCs and the share ownerships linking them. Then they constructed a model of which companies controlled others through shareholding networks, coupled with each company's operating revenues, to map the structure of economic power.

The work, to be published in PLoS One, revealed a core of 1318 companies with interlocking ownerships (see image). Each of the 1318 had ties to two or more other companies, and on average they were connected to 20. What's more, although they represented 20 per cent of global operating revenues, the 1318 appeared to collectively own through their shares the majority of the world's large blue chip and manufacturing firms - the "real" economy - representing a further 60 per cent of global revenues.

When the team further untangled the web of ownership, it found much of it tracked back to a "super-entity" of 147 even more tightly knit companies - all of their ownership was held by other members of the super-entity - that controlled 40 per cent of the total wealth in the network. "In effect, less than 1 per cent of the companies were able to control 40 per cent of the entire network," says Glattfelder. Most were financial institutions. The top 20 included Barclays Bank, JPMorgan Chase & Co, and The Goldman Sachs Group.

John Driffill of the University of London, a macroeconomics expert, says the value of the analysis is not just to see if a small number of people controls the global economy, but rather its insights into economic stability.

Concentration of power is not good or bad in itself, says the Zurich team, but the core's tight interconnections could be. As the world learned in 2008, such networks are unstable. "If one [company] suffers distress," says Glattfelder, "this propagates."

"It's disconcerting to see how connected things really are," agrees George Sugihara of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography in La Jolla, California, a complex systems expert who has advised Deutsche Bank.

Yaneer Bar-Yam, head of the New England Complex Systems Institute (NECSI), warns that the analysis assumes ownership equates to control, which is not always true. Most company shares are held by fund managers who may or may not control what the companies they part-own actually do. The impact of this on the system's behaviour, he says, requires more analysis.

Crucially, by identifying the architecture of global economic power, the analysis could help make it more stable. By finding the vulnerable aspects of the system, economists can suggest measures to prevent future collapses spreading through the entire economy. Glattfelder says we may need global anti-trust rules, which now exist only at national level, to limit over-connection among TNCs. Sugihara says the analysis suggests one possible solution: firms should be taxed for excess interconnectivity to discourage this risk.

One thing won't chime with some of the protesters' claims: the super-entity is the intentional result of a conspiracy to rule the world. "Such structures are common in nature," says Sugihara.

Newcomers to any network connect preferentially to highly connected members. TNCs buy shares in each other for business reasons, not for world domination. If connectedness clusters, so does wealth, says Dan Braha of NECSI: in similar models, money flows towards the most highly connected members. The Zurich study, says Sugihara, "is strong evidence that simple rules governing TNCs give rise spontaneously to highly connected groups". Or as Braha puts it: "The Occupy Wall Street claim that 1 per cent of people have most of the wealth reflects a logical phase of the self-organising economy."

So, the super-entity result from conspiracy. The real question, says the Zurich team, is whether it can exert concerted political power. Driffill feels 147 is too many to sustain collusion. Braha suspects they will compete in the market but act together on common interests. Resisting changes to the network structure may be one such common interest.

We spend billions of dollars trying to understand the origins of the universe, while we still don't understand the conditions for a stable society, a functioning economy, or peace.
(D. Helbing quoted from here)

The upcoming publication The Network of Global Corporate Control has gained some attention in the news (sciencenews.org, newscientist.com) and the blogosphere (for instance, planetsave.com, physorg.com and johncarlosbaez.wordpress.com). Because some reactions have been particularly hostile, for instance Ms. Yves Smith from Naked Capitalism (see also our responses here and in their comment section), or have inspired the conspiracy theory camp, please let me recapitulate what our paper is and isn't and address some of the voiced concerns, in order to avoid misconceptions. (If you are only interested in our responses to critiques - for instance, computing control from ownership and the notion of control in the financial sector

Occupy Global World Revolution! International March To Athens: Next Step For Dignity! ΔΙΕΘΝΗΣ ΠΟΡΕΙΑ ΣΤΗΝ ΑΘΗΝΑ Το επόμενο βήμα για την αξιοπρέπεια!

International March To Athens ΔΙΕΘΝΗΣ ΠΟΡΕΙΑ ΣΤΗΝ ΑΘΗΝΑ Next Step To Dignity  Το επόμενο βήμα για την αξιοπρέπεια!

After our participation in the Ágora and 15th of Octuber global manifestation in Brussels, we have decided that our march can’t be stopped. And since our desire is to continue spreading our message and to connect with the other assemblies of the world, the International March to Athens is borned, as an open project to all who wants to support and participate in it.

We will meet in Niza on the 5th of Novembre 2011 after the G20 Summit (30th Octubre – 4th Novembre) to organize ourselves and go few days afterwards. We will pass by different villages and cities of Italy. We will cross the Adriatic Sea from Bari to reach Greece, then we will walk to Athens as final destiny. In both of Rome and Athens, we will participate in the Global Agoras the will be organized at the arrival of the marches.

The march will be formed by small groups of walkers and cyclists (12 to 25 person aprox.), that will advance by parallel routes to reach out more people on the way. The idea is to reunite in cities then to walk part of the distance together. Everytime that the number of the group reaches about 25 person, the main group will be divided in to two independent groups. And in every village the march will call for asemblies and will exchange experiance, problems and ideas.

The values that unite the different marches are the horizontality, the active participation, the no-violence, and the inclusivity of the members. We propose to continue the asambleary work and the decision making through consensus by practicing direct democracy. We will also work to reach the sustainability of the march and to convey a message of respect to the environment.

We make this march to to animate people to take the public space and meet, to talk about politics and decide for their own lives. We make this march to propose and learn, to inspire and το be enriched, to speak and listen, to give and receive. We want to reach Rome and Athens to bring a message of hope and unity. Most of all, we want to participate in the Global Agoras to in order to coordinate at international level, to prepare projects in common, to confront together the problems and create a just society for everybody.

We walk for dignity. Together we can reach the Utopia.

Il prossimo passo per la dignità!

Dopo aver partecipato all'Agorà e all'evento complessivo 15 ottobre 2011 a Bruxelles, abbiamo deciso che la marcia non poteva fermarsi dopo l'arrivo a Bruxelles.Dal nostro desiderio di continuare a camminare al fine di diffondere il nostro messaggio, connettersi con le altre assemblee nel mondo, nasce la Marcia Internazionale ad Atene. Un progetto aperto a tutti coloro che vogliono partecipare e sostenerci.

Ci incontreremo a Nizza 5 nov 2011, dopo il G20 (30 ottobre-4 novembre) per organizzarci e partire qualche giorno più tardi. Passeremo per diverse città e paesi d’Italia. Attraverseremo l'Adriatico da Bari per raggiungere la Grecia e, infine, arriveremo ad Atene. Parteciperemoalle Agorà Globali nella che si terranno a Roma come ad Atene all’arrivo delle marce.

Piccoli gruppi di escursionisti e ciclisti (da 12 a 25 marciatori) avanzeranno per percorsi paralleli per coprire più territorio. L'idea consiste nel raccogliersi nelle grandi città, ripartire insieme e separasi di nuovo in seguito. Ogni volta che un gruppo supererà le 25 persone, si separerà in due gruppi indipendenti. In ogni paese le marce convocheranno delle assemblee et scambieranno esperienze, problematiche ed idee.

I valori che uniscono le marce sono l’orizzontalità, la partecipazione attiva,la nonviolenza e il sincretismo., attivo, non violenza e sincretisme. Ci proponiamo di continuare il lavoro assembleare e il processo decisionale per consenso. Lavoreremo anche per garantire la sostenibilità di camminare e passare un messaggio di rispetto per l'ambiente.

Facciamo questa marcia per animare le persone a occupare lo spazio pubblico e a riunirsi per parlare di politica e decidere della propria vita. Facciamo questa marcia per proporre et imparare, per ispirare e arricchirci,per parlare ed ascoltare,dare e ricevere. Noi vogliamo raggiungere Roma e Atene per apportare un messaggio di speranza e di unità. Ma soprattutto, vogliamo partecipare alle agorà globali per coordinarci su scala internazionale,al fine di preparare dei progetti comuni confrontare insieme i problemi e creare una società migliore per tutti.

Marciamo per fare arrivare il nostro messaggio ai quattro angoli del mondo :

“Una democrazia migliore è possibile. Cominciamo dal cambiamento!”

Το επόμενο βήμα για την αξιοπρέπεια!

Μετά τη συμμετοχή μας στη Διεθνή Αγορά και τη διαδήλωση της 15ης Οκτωβρίου στις Βρυξέλλες, αποφασίσαμε ο η Πορεία δεν μπορεί να σταματήσει. Από τη θέλησή μας νασυνεχίσουμε να περπατάμε για να διαδόσουμε το μήνυμά μας και για να συνδεθούμε με τις άλλες συνελεύσεις του κόσμου, γεννήθηκε η Διεθνής Πορεία στην Αθήνα, ένα σχέδιο ανοιχτό προς όλους όσοι θέλουν να συμμετάσχουν και να στηρίξουν.

Θα συναντηθούμε στη Νίκαια (Νιce) στις 5 Νοεμβρίου μετά το G20 (30 Οκτ με 4 Νοεμβ) για να οργνωθούμε και να ξεκινήσουμε μετά από λίγες μέρες. Θα περάσουμε από διάφορα χωριά και πόλεις της Ιταλίας, θα διασχίσουμε την Αδριατική θάλασσα από το Μπάρι για να φτάσουμε στην Ελλάδα και θα περπατήσουμε ως την Αθήνα, τον τελικό μας προορισμό. Τόσο στη Ρώμη, όσο στην Αθήνα θα λάβουμε μέρος στη Διεθνή Αγορά που θα οργανωθεί στην άφιξη της πορείας.

Η πορεία θα αποτελείται από μικρές ομάδες οδοιπόρων ή ποδηλατών (από 12 ως 25 περίπου) που θα προχωρούν από παράλληλους διαδρομές. Στις μεγάλες πόλεις οι ομάδες αυτές θα ενώνονται και μπορεί να διασχίζουν μέρος της απόστασης μαζί. Κάθε φορά που ο αριθμός των οδοιπόρων θα ξεπερνά τους 25 η πορεία θα χωρίζεται σε δυο ανεξάρτητες ομάδες. Σε κάθε χωριό οι πορείες θα καλούν συνελεύσεις και θα ανταλλάσουν εμπειρίες, προβληματικές και ιδέες.

Οι αξίες που ενώνουν τις διάφορες πορείες είναι η οριζόντια οργάνωση, η ενεργή συμμετοχή, η μη-βία και η συμπερίληψη. 'Εχουμε την πρόθεση να συνεχίσουμε τις συνελεύσεις και τη λήψη των αποφάσεων μέ συναίνεση, ασκώντας έτσι την Άμεση Δημοκρατία. Επίσης θα εργαστούμε για να επιτύχουμε την βιοσιμότητα της πορείας και για τη μετάδοση του μηνύματος σεβασμού προς στο περιβάλλον.

Κάνουμε αυτή την πορεία για να ενθαρρύνουμε τον κόσμο να βγει στους δημόσιους χώρους και να συγκεντρωθεί, να μιλήσει για πολιτική και να αποφασίσει για την ίδια τη ζωή του. Κάνουμε αυτήν την πορεία για να προτείνουμε και να μάθουμε, για να εμπνεύσουμε και να εμπλουτιστούμε, για να μιλήσουμε και να ακούσουμε, να δόσουμε και να πάρουμε. Θέλουμε να φτάσουμε στη Ρώμη και στην Αθήνα για να μεταφέρουμε ένα μήνυμα ελπίδας και ενότητας. Πάνω από όλα θέλουμε να συμμετάσχουμε στη Διεθνή Αγορά για να συντονιστούμε σε παγκόσμιο επίπεδο, για να ετοιμάσουμε κοινά σχέδια, να αντιμετωπίσουμε μαζί τα προβλήματα και να δημιουργήσουμε μία κοινωνία δίκαιη για όλους.

Περπατάμε για ένα κόσμο με αξιοπρέπεια. Ολοι μαζι μπορούμε να φτασούμε στην ουτοπία.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

Siguiente paso por la dignidad!

Después de participar en el Ágora y la manifestación global del 15 de octubre 2011 en Bruselas, hemos decidido que la Marcha ya no puede parar. Desde nuestra voluntad de continuar caminando para difundir nuestro mensaje y conectar con las otras asambleas del mundo ha nacido la Marcha Internacional a Atenas, un proyecto abierto a todos los que quieran participar y apoyar.

Nos encontraremos en Niza el 5 de noviembre 2011 después del G20 (30 oct - 4 nov) para organizarnos y salir unos días después. Pasaremos por diferentes pueblos y ciudades de Italia. Cruzaremos el mar Adriático desde Bari para llegar a Grecia y como destino final caminaremos hasta Atenas. Tanto en Roma como en Atenas participaremos en las Agoras globales que se organizarán a la llegada de las marchas.

La marcha estará formada por pequeños grupos de caminantes y ciclistas (aprox. de 12 a 25) que avanzarán por rutas paralelas para llegar a mas personas.. La idea es unirse en las grandes ciudades y después recorrer parte de la distancia juntos. Cada vez que el numero de personas supere unas 25 , el grupo se dividirá en otros dos independientes. En cada pueblo las marchas convocarán asambleas e intercambiarán experiencias, problemáticas e ideas.

Los valores que unen las diferentes marchas son la horizontalidad, la participacion activa, la no-violencia y la inclusividad. Se propone continuar el trabajo asambleario y la toma de decisiones a través de los consensos practicando la democracia directa. También se trabajará para llegar a la sustentabilidad de la marcha y transmitir un mensaje de respeto al medio ambiente.

Hacemos esta Marcha para animar a la gente a tomar el espacio publico y reunirse, a hablar de polìtica y decidir por su propia vida. Hacemos esta Marcha para proponer y aprender, para inspirar y enriquecernos, para hablar y escuchar, dar y recibir. Queremos llegar a Roma y a Atenas para llevar un mensaje de esperanza y unidad. Sobre todo queremos participar en las Ágoras Globales para coordinarnos a nivel internacional, para preparar proyectos comunes, para confrontar juntos los problemas y crear una sociedad justa para todos.

Marchamos para hacer llegar el nuestro mensaje a los cuatro rincones del mundo :
"Una democracia mejore es posible. Empecememos el cambio!"

Caminamos por la dignidad. Juntos podemos llegar a la Utopia.

Le pas suivant pour la dignité!

Après avoir participé à l'Agora et à la manifestation globale du 15 octobre 2011 à Bruxelles, nous avons décidé que la Marche ne pouvait plus s'arrêter. De notre volonté de continuer à marcher afin de diffuser notre message de connecter avec les autres assemblées du monde est née la Marche Internationale à Athènes, un projet ouvert à tous ceux qui veulent y participer et nous soutenir.

Nous nous retrouverons à Nice le 5 novembre 2011 après le G20 (30 oct - 4 nov) pour nous organiser et partir quelques jours plus tard. Nous passerons par différentes villles et villages d'Italie. Nous traverserons l'Adriatique depuis Bari pour atteindre la Grèce et finalement arriver à Athènes. Nous participerons aux Agoras Globales qui seront organisées à Rome comme à Athènes à l'arrivée des marches.

La marche se composera de petits groupes de marcheurs et cyclistes (aprox. de 12 à 25) qui avanceront par des routes parallèles pour atteindre un maximum de citoyens. L'idée consistant à se rassembler dans les grandes villes et repartir ensemble pour se séparer de nouveau. Chaque fois que le goupe dépassera les 25 personnes, la marche se scindera en deux groupes indépendants. Dans chaque village les marches convoqueront des assemblées et échangeront leurs expériences, problématiques et idées.

Les valeurs qui unissent les marches sont l'horizontalité, la participation active, la non violence et le l'inclusivité. Nous nous sommes fixés comme objectif de continuer le travail assembléaire et la prise de décisions par consensus par l'application de la démocratie directe. Nous travaillerons également pour veiller à la soutenabilité de la marche et transmettre un messaje de respect à l'environnement.

Hacemos esta Marcha para animar a la gente a tomar el espacio publico y reunirse, a hablar de polìtica y decidir por su propia vida. Hacemos esta Marcha para proponer y aprender, para inspirar y enriquecernos, para hablar y escuchar, dar y recibir. Queremos llegar a Roma y a Atenas para llevar un mensaje de esperanza y unidad. Sobre todo queremos participar en las Ágoras Globales para coordinarnos a nivel internacional, para preparar proyectos comunes, para confrontar juntos los problemas y crear una sociedad justa para todos.

Nous faisons cette marche pour inciter les gens à occuper l'espace public et à s'y réunir pour parler de politique et décider de leur propre vie. Nous entreprenons cette marche pour proposer et apprendre, pour inspirer et nous enrichir, pour parler et écouter, donner et recevoir. Nous voulons atteindre Rome et Athènes pour porter un message d'espoir et d'unité. Mais avant tout nous voulons participer aux agoras globales pour nous coordonner à l'échelle internationale, afin de préparer des projets communs, confronter ensemble les problèmes et créer une société juste pour tous.

Nous marchons pour faire arriver notre message aux quatre coins du monde :
"Une meilleure démocratie est possible. Commencons le changement!"

Nous marchons pour la dignité. Ensemble nous atteindrons l'utopie.
