It is true in any case the US federal government, including the "Republican" establishment, because it has far too much control over economic parameters, is as corrupt as any government on the planet. Power breeds corruption.
Isn't George Soros famous for doing this?
Yup...his manipulation of the GBP.

This is how the markets have worked since they began. They have always been manipulated, but you can profit from it. Read the tape, watch the volume and the action. These guys may manipulate the market but they can’t hide it. Volume tells the tale.
