Cris Sheridan's introduction:
For the last several decades or more there has been a major shift in how the global economy and markets function. Many people feel and know this to be true—as if we’ve entered a whole brave new world—but aren’t quite sure what to call it. Some have said that we no longer operate under capitalism and that instead we should call it creditism, where the strict control of credit flowing through the financial system drives the global economy. There are many other “isms” as well that may operate more or less in a given region—socialism or totalitarianism, for example. But there is one above all others, especially in light of what we see today, that has come to be the reigning paradigm across all facets of the global economy, markets, and society…and that is technocratism. FS Insider speaks with Patrick Wood, the world’s foremost leading expert and author on this subject, who has detailed its history, evolution, and ongoing implementation. His most popular book is titled Technocracy Rising: The Trojan Horse of Global Transformation. Listen in as we discuss the rise of technocracy in a post-Covid world.
