CARTEL: “a group of independent market participants who collude with each other in order to improve their profits and dominate the market. Cartels are usually associations in the same sphere of business, and thus an alliance of rivals. Most jurisdictions consider it anti-competitive behavior and have outlawed such practices. Cartel behavior includes price fixing, bid rigging, and reductions in output. The doctrine in economics that analyzes cartels is Cartel theory. Cartels are distinguished from other forms of collusion or anti-competitive organization such as corporate mergers.”
In other words, cartels are simply another “business model” like the governments and corporations running the US, UK, Canada, Australia and EU.
When Cartels fight each other for territory, like Tijuana, it is no different than Ukraine/US fighting Russia, or US/Taiwan fighting China. When someone gets in their way, they simply remove him. In the government world it is called a coup. In the Cartel world it is a snuff.
Then there is “Cartel Theory”. Cartel Theory was developed by the Hungarian, Friedrich Kleinwachter, and adopted by German economists in 1883. It became the economic model of the Third Reich, and later in the US under economists Stigler and Stocking.
Today it is the model of western governments in controlling all aspects of finance and commodities. Prices are no longer subject to demand and supply, they are created and manipulated to leverage profits. Before moving to the next commodity.
In Mexico, Asia and South America, the Cartels are associated with drugs and crime. In America it is called politics and lobbying. It is theory that Hungarian George Soros gained his financial foothold trading in drugs which he laundered thru the financial industry. His subsequent success in the financial world was simply another Cartel leveraging system of money laundering.
When the Mexican Cartels light a few cars on fire, it is called ‘violence’. When sweetie pies like Antifa and BLM light cities on fire – it is called peaceful protesting.
They have rival cartels called democrats, republicans and independents. And they each vie for absolute control. Because control means more MONEY.
I listened to the ‘media’ describe the violence on display in Tijuana and Ensenada this past weekend and became fearful for a friend of mine living down there. But the information relayed from within was far different than the media portrayal. Surprise! In fact, my friend said most Mexicans are not nearly as fearful of the Cartels as Americans are fearful of the Politicians…
With Cartels you know exactly what you are dealing with, politicians – not so much.
Cartels employ different means of governing. Some prefer to actually vertically control the businesses, while others levy a ‘tax’ on existing businesses. In the US it is called the IRS. While corporate mergers simultaneously own the majority of output in order to price fix commodities. Recently, Ford and GM simultaneously increased the price of their cars at the same rate in order to combat the new IRS tax imposed by the Biden Regime Handler Cartel. And now we will be subject to the IRS guerilla’s if we don’t comply with common core math wherein agents with one month training in taxation determine their fair share…
Comply or Die.
As the US Regime Cartel assassinates and jails those citizens who are least likely to comply, they need fresh clients to replace the dead. Thus, bringing thousands upon thousands of illegal immigrants into the country who are uneducated and willing to work for minimum wage is a means of mitigating the disaster.
Given these corporate cartels are buying farmland and haven’t a clue how to farm, they need the immigrants to run their estates and ranches. As American and Canadian doctors continue to ‘bite the dust’, Cuban doctors are plentiful. In the EU it is no different. With birth rates declinging for decades, immigrants from Africa are needed to fill the void of the jabberwhackey deaths.
This is the New Economic ideology to replace Capitalism. It has been in place since the end of the Civil War. They are effectively a totalitarian authority of ‘masters’ and everyone else. In 1945, they were considered a natural evolution of society. Since then, their ‘territory’ has expanded on a global level. And the henchmen are the only visible puppets conducting their Orders. Which they call the New International Order.
