Empire, Power, and People with Andrew Gavin Marshall- Episode 38

Managing the World: America, Germany and Japan

EPPIn the post-World War II period, the United States undertook a strategy aimed at building up Germany and Japan as the major industrial powers of their respective regions (Europe and East Asia), with the aim of integrating these regions, inevitably requiring them to undertake neo-colonial programs of domination and exploitation of surrounding areas (Africa and Southeast Asia). While the United States was to maintain dominance over and exploit Latin America, Germany and Europe were to exploit Africa (along with the US), while Japan was to exploit Southeast Asia (with US collusion).

German industrial expansion was aided by European integration into what is now the EU, while Japanese industrial expansion was aided primarily by the Korean and Vietnamese wars, respectively. As these two new centres of power emerged, following along the lines of their previous imperial designs as Nazi Germany's 'New Order' for Europe, and Japan's 'Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere', a new form of co-ordination was promoted among the three global industrial centres. This became the Trilateral Commission, which facilitated cooperation between Western Europe, North America, and Japan in their domination of the 'Third World', the true object of the 'Cold War', which was a battle between the North and South, not East and West.

  1. Andrew, I’m currently unable to listen to the podcast due to my coming move back to Manhattan Beach. That said, your pieces on the erection of the new US corporate Economic order and it’s client satraps reminds me of stories I’ve read recently about the new Trans-Pacific Partnership treaty currently being negotiated that I believe needs to be examined more thoroughly. As I’ve followed the negotiations, it’s hard for me to escape the conclusion that this treaty will all but enshrine Corporate Transcendence of the nation-state while giving those same corporations the right to enforce the TPP decisions through either economic or military means. This would allow the organization and deployment of private corporate mercenary armies to enforce their will. Something to think about.
