Empire, Power & People with Andrew Gavin Marshall- Episode 109

Globalization's 'Game of Thrones'

EPPIn the popular television show - and the books it was based upon - we are witness to the internal politics, passions and power-plays of the main ruling dynasties of a fictional world, vying for power, going to war, conniving and controlling, killing and cooperating in a Machiavellian manner. The modern cultural phenomenon of 'Game of Thrones' holds similar themes to the reality of the most powerful corporate and financial dynasties in the world today, whether it be the Rothschilds, Rockefellers, Wallenbergs, Agnellis, Desmarais, Safras, or any assortment of other families. The dynastic family remains a cornerstone of power in the world, though there is significantly less attention to those who wield it. This episode examines a few stories of the 'Game of Thrones' in the era of Globalization.
