Title: The Good Club - World's Elite Make Population Control #1 Priority - May 5 2009
Post by: PatAndrews on May 19, 2009, 12:23:52 pm
A top-secret meeting of the world’s richest people to discuss the global financial crisis was held in New York on May 5, IrishCentral.com has learned exclusively.

The mysterious, media-blackout meeting was called by Warren Buffett, CEO of Berkshire-Hathaway; Bill Gates, co founder of Microsoft; and David Rockefeller Jr., chairman of Rockefeller Financial Services.

In addition to Gates, Buffett and Rockefeller, the attendees included Oprah Winfrey, George Soros, Ted Turner, and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, among others.

It was held in the President's Room at Rockefeller University In New York at 3 p.m. on that Tuesday afternoon.

How so many giant figures in American life managed to interrupt and coordinate their schedules on such short notice, and meet in total secrecy in the world’s media capital remains a mystery -- as does the ultimate outcome of the billionaires' conference.

In their letter of invitation, Gates, Buffett and Rockefeller cited the worldwide recession and the urgent need to plan for the future. They said they wanted to hear the views of a broad range of key leaders in the financial and philanthropic fields.

Each attendee was given 15 minutes to deliver a presentation on how they saw the future global economic climate, the future priorities for philanthropy, and what they felt  the elite group should do.

According to one of the attendees, Gates was the most-impressive speaker of the day, with Turner the most-outspoken and Warren Buffet the most-insistent on his agenda for change.

Winfrey was said to be in a “listening mode."

Gates was worth an estimated $57B in 2008; more recently, Buffett clocked in at an estimated $37B -- making them the richest Americans.

Winfrey was once the world’s only black billionaire, and has extensive holdings in the entertainment and publishing industries, as well as being a leading philanthropist.

Turner, founder of CNN, once donated $1B to the United Nations. Soros has a personal fortune estimated at $11B, while  Bloomberg is listed as the eighth-richest American with a net worth of $20B .

Other invitees included Eli and Edythe Broad, whose current fortune is estimated at $5.2B by Forbes Magazine; John Morgridge, former CEO of Cisco and his wife Tashia; Peter Peterson, senior chairman of the Blackstone Group; Julian Robertson, founder of Tiger Management Corp.; and  Patty Stonesifer, former CEO of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

"They were all there, the great and the good," a participant told IrishCentral.com.

Or maybe the board of governors (aka Bilderberg) directed America, Inc.'s senior management to meet and prepare for the future.
Last I heard, the news coming from Mr. Tucker said we can expect a sharp depression. You would need industry and media types to prepare for it quite rapidly.

In that light, this meeting would be expected.

what's the corporate connection between Bilderberg and Davos? if there is any distinction between the Illuminati and the New World Order, is this a part of it? Or are they all the same super-elite owners?

and when are we gonna see some Asian delegates at these pseudo-private corporate global meetings?  Chinese? Japanese? Korean?

It's what they DON'T leak out that needs to be further examined.

What are these things REALLY hiding?

America's Richest Givers Hold Secret Meeting in New York

 By RUSSELL GOLDMAN and EILEEN MURPHY
May 20, 2009

Under a cloak of secrecy, some of the world's wealthiest people gathered in an unprecedented meeting early this month in New York City possibly to coordinate strategies for giving their vast fortunes to charity in the midst of the financial crisis.

Invited by the world's richest men Bill Gates and Warren Buffet, a Who's Who of American wealth and influence gathered around a long table in a window-lined private room overlooking the East River on May 5.

Gates and Buffett were joined by billionaire moguls Oprah Winfrey, Ted Turner and New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg along with heavyweight philanthropists George Soros, David Rockefeller and others.

Together the attendees have donated over $70 billion to charity since 1996.

A clandestine meeting of the country's rich and powerful, left off their public calendars and hidden from the press, is enough to spark the imaginations of conspiracy theorists everywhere, but attendees told ABC News.com the meeting was "100 percent about philanthropy."

First reported by blog IrishCentral.com, ABCNews.com confirmed each of the attendees' presence at the meeting held at the residence of the Rockefeller University president on the campus of the Manhattan medical school. None of the participants would discuss the meeting's details for attribution.

"It was a private gathering of friends and colleagues to share their history and excitement about their philanthropy. [It was] a group together discussing a range of things they are working on," said one attendee.

There remain as many questions about the meeting's details as there are about the logistics behind its organization. How did some of the world's most public figures coordinate their schedules, travel, and security with no one in media knowing about it?

Charities Suffer in Recession

The meeting was reminiscent of the 1907 salons of America's foremost financiers held in the study of JP Morgan to discuss how private citizens could stop the economic panic. IrishCentral reported that each of the participants was given 15 minutes to propose how to best direct their charity given the global economic climate.

Charities are suffering during the crisis, and America's top philanthropists likely met to chart a new course for global charity, said Stacy Palmer, editor-in-chief of the Chronicle of Philanthropy.

A meeting of the country's top philanthropists is "extraordinary" and "really unusual," said Palmer.

"I can't think of another time they've all been in the same room to talk about philanthropy," she said. "It's unprecedented."

Gates and Buffet have publicly committed their vast fortunes to the same philanthropic efforts and the meeting was apparently their idea.

Gates, the founder and former CEO of Microsoft, who topped the Forbes' Richest People list this year, has dedicated his foundation to eradicating infectious disease worldwide.

According to Portfolio magazine, Gates, who is worth about $59 billion, donated $3.7 billion from 2002 to 2006 and $10 billion from 2007 to 2008.

Warren Buffett, CEO of conglomerate Berkshire Hathaway, was ranked the second-richest man by Forbes this year with a net worth is estimated at $52 billion. Though his giving in the past year is not disclosed, he donated some $46.1 billion between 2002 and 2006, according to Portfolio.

In 2006, Buffet pledged $31 billion, the bulk of his fortune, to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, doubling the organization's endowment virtually overnight.

Though the charitable interests of the participants differ, they have some things in common, said Bob Ottenhoff, CEO of Guidestar, a service that tracks nonprofit organizations.

For the most part, the attendees are all self-made. Their donations come from money they made in their own lifetimes, rather than old family fortunes, and they have committed to giving away their fortunes while still alive rather than through bequests after their deaths.

One exception is David Rockefeller, scion of the Rockefeller fortune. In 2008, Rockefeller gave $137 million to charity.

Philanthropic Groups Have Global Reach

Though the philanthropic focus of each of the participants differs, many of their foundations have a global dimension.

"Each has their specialty. Gates focuses on world health, [CNN founder Ted] Turner on the environment and the UN, Soros is involved in civic engagement," said Ottenhoff.

Between 1997 and 2006 Turner has donated $1.6 billion, the bulk of which, $1 billion, went to the UN Foundation in 1997.

Soros, a fund manager worth $9 billion, gave $1.1 billion from 2002 to 2006 and $475 million from 2007 to 2008. Much of Soros giving goes to his family's Open Society Institute.

"These sorts of meetings don't happen very often. It is difficult for large philanthropic organizations to work together. The fact that these are all very engaged living donors means very interesting things can happen," Ottenhoff said.

Both Ottenhoff and Palmer agreed that it was likely the financial crisis that brought everyone together.

Charitable giving has taken a serious hit in recent months, and the power players likely discussed how to keep some nonprofits afloat.

"Nonprofits are going through a difficult time. The endowments of many foundations have dropped significantly," said Palmer. "Many people are not as able to give as much money as the used to."

They are making a statement that donors should continue to give. They are likely planning on a sending a message that philanthropy needs to continue worldwide," she said.

Few of the participants, Palmer said, gave money quietly and she anticipated that the secret meeting was the first step in a plan that would eventually be made public.

A number of other people attended the meeting including: Winfrey, worth $2.7 billion, who donated some $50 million in 2007; Bloomberg, founder of Bloomberg LP and Mayor of New York City, who is worth $11.5 billion and donated $205 million from 2007 to 2008; financier Eli Broad who donated $100 million in 2008; and financier Peter Peterson, who gave away $215 million in 2008.

America's Top Philanthropists Hold Secret Meeting To Discuss Global Problems

By Maria Di Mento and Ian Wilhelm

In a quiet meeting closed to the news media and the public, Bill Gates, David Rockefeller Sr., Oprah Winfrey, and other leading philanthropists met in New York this month to discuss ways to promote efforts to solve growing social problems in America and abroad.

Together, the philanthropists in the room have committed a total of more than $72.5-billion to charitable causes since 1996, according to Chronicle of Philanthropy tallies.

The unusual event occurred May 5 at Rockefeller University and was organized by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Among the high-profile participants were Ted Turner, Warren E. Buffett, George Soros, and New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg. (All of those philanthropists have appeared at one time on The Chronicle’s ranking of America’s most-generous donors.)

Several of the people at the meeting confirmed their involvement, but declined to tell The Chronicle about what was discussed or why they gathered almost in secret.

According to a person familiar with the meeting, the wealthy philanthropists gathered to trade ideas about how to raise the level of philanthropy in the world.

According to IrishCentral.com, a Web site in New York that writes about Irish Americans and which first disclosed some of the details about the gathering, each philanthropist was given 15 minutes to talk about “how they saw the future global economic climate, the future priorities for philanthropy, and what they felt the elite group should do.”

Other people who attended included Eli Broad, a real-estate investor, Julian H. Robertson, Jr., a hedge-fund manager, and Patty Stonesifer, former chief executive of the Gates foundation.

What a surprise, let the hit pieces begin.

"World's Richest" Meet in Secret, Plot New World Order or Something

Get out your tinfoil! ABC today reports a heretofore secret meeting of "America's Richest Givers", including Mayor Bloomberg, Oprah, David Rockefeller, George Soros, Ted Turner, and other illuminati, were invited by Warren Buffett and Bill Gates to a "window-lined private room" -- as opposed to one lined with shackled slaves, where such meetings usually take place -- in New York on May 5. ABC says they were told the meeting was "100 percent about philanthropy." But what would you expect them to be told? In addition to being Richest Givers, these f**kers are just plain rich. They could have been plotting anything in there -- maybe even a surprise birthday party for Walt Disney's reanimated head.

Those lovable rightwing scamps at Lucianne.com have it figured out: "These billioinaires have just been informed that they will no longer be allowed to offer health benefits to employees, since EVERYONE will be forced into Socialized Medicine," says one. "'Their' plans have been known a long time," explains another. "Froogle.ORG 'Georgia guideposts' and you will see the world's 10-point epitaph as proclaimed by the world oligarchy." That doesn't explain much, but we suspect these guys have their own alternate internet made out of cardboard and dribble.

The involvement of George Soros is especially worrisome, as he has "bought and paid for the bias of MSM's [NBC, MSNBC, ABC, CBS, PBS] and controlled the internet media through Media Matters, Moveon.org, etc. that might reveal anything detrimental to Obama's being elected as POTUS," says Romanticpoet. But with that kind of power, why would he need the rest of those guys?

Runnin' Scared has it on good authority that they just drank babies' blood and bathed naked in a jacuzzi full of Krugerrands, like they do every year.

The Rich Get … Together (Shhh, It Was a Secret)

 There are many fewer American billionaires these days, so one might think those who are left would attract more attention when they moved en masse. Yet some of America’s more prominent and successful capitalists managed to meet this month at Rockefeller University on the Upper East Side to discuss philanthropy. It took weeks before anyone noticed.

News of the meeting was reported on Monday by the site Irish Central.

The attendees at the May 5 event seemed pulled from the Forbes list of the world’s wealthiest people: Bill Gates (1), Warren E. Buffet (2), Michael R. Bloomberg (17), George Soros (29), Eli Broad (93), Oprah Winfrey (234), David Rockefeller Sr. (305), Ted Turner (376), Peter Peterson (430), Julian H. Robertson Jr. (559) and John Morgridge (647).

Based on February estimates by Forbes, the room had a net worth about $120 billion, or nearly as much as New York State’s annual budget.

Even as details trickled out this week, participants steadfastly refused to reveal the content of the discussion. Some cited an agreement to keep the meeting confidential. Spokesmen for Mr. Buffett, Mr. Bloomberg, Mr. Gates, Mr. Rockefeller, Mr. Soros and Ms. Winfrey and others dutifully declined comment, though some confirmed attendance.

“It was a private meeting,” said Karen Denne, a spokesman for the Broad Foundation, which runs Mr. Broad’s charitable efforts.

“Essentially it was a brainstorming session where people who are very charitable talked about charity in today’s economic climate,” said an assistant to one of the participants, who was told about the discussion but asked not to be identified because of the request for secrecy.

The participants all have reputations as philanthropists, and many have teamed up on causes in the past. Mr. Buffet, for instance, recently pledged to donate the bulk of his fortune, currently estimated at $37 billion, to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Together the members of the meeting had donated more than $72.5 billion to charitable causes since 1996, according to The Chronicle of Philanthropy.

Details about how the event came together were just as closely guarded. The person said to be the organizer, Patricia Q. Stonesifer, former chief executive of the Gates foundation and currently chairwoman of the Smithsonian Institution, did not return messages requesting comment.

The gathering started at 3 p.m. on May 5, a Tuesday, and lasted through dinner, held at Rockefeller University, at the private residence on campus of Paul Nurse, the university’s president, while he was out of town, said Joseph Bonner, a spokesman for the university.

The university became involved after the elder Mr. Rockefeller, its former longtime chairman, requested the university to provide space for the meeting, Mr. Bonner said. “Our role was just to provide a site for those people to meet,” he said.

ABC News Reports On Secret Meeting Of The Rich, Yet Ignores Bilderberg Completely

Paul Joseph Watson
Prison Planet.com
Wednesday, May 20, 2009

ABC News today devoted a prominently featured three page story to a “secret meeting” of rich philanthropists which took place earlier this month in New York, and yet one of the biggest news corporations in America was completely silent during a far more important meeting of around 150 of the world’s powerbrokers at the Bilderberg conference last week.

At time of press, the ABC News story is the second top story on the ABCNews.com website under the headline, America’s Richest Givers’ Secret Meeting.

“Under a cloak of secrecy, some of the world’s wealthiest people gathered in an unprecedented meeting early this month in New York City possibly to coordinate strategies for giving their vast fortunes to charity in the midst of the financial crisis,” begins the report, before descending into a deluge of fawning idolatry about how people like David Rockefeller, Bill Gates and Ted Turner, who has repeatedly called for world population to be reduced by a shocking 95% as well as a one child policy instituted in the west, are committed to saving the poor from the ravages of the economic crisis with their benign acts of philanthropy.

The report states that the meeting is “enough to spark the imaginations of conspiracy theorists everywhere,” linking to a previous ABC News report that implies people who believe that powerful individuals conspire to rule the world in secret are probably mentally ill.

The most vomit inducing paragraph of the whole article arrives when ABC asks, “There remain as many questions about the meeting’s details as there are about the logistics behind its organization. How did some of the world’s most public figures coordinate their schedules, travel, and security with no one in media knowing about it?”

Well how indeed did they manage to do that I wonder? 150+ of the global elite manage to do it on a routine basis every single year without barely a whimper from the corporate media, despite the location of the Bilderberg meeting leaking in advance every time.

They manage to do it because the corporate media was castrated decades ago and is merely a PR machine for the establishment, which is why they dutifully follow orders not to report on what would otherwise be a gargantuan story of worldwide interest in the form of the secret Bilderberg Group meetings.

ABC News is owned by the Walt Disney Company, Vice Chairman of which is Roy Disney, nephew of Walt Disney himself. Roy Disney is a Bilderberg member, having attended the secretive cabal’s 1999 conference in Sintra, Portugal.

Since all Bilderberg members adhere to “Chatham House Rules,” forbidding the revelation of anything that was discussed, it’s unsurprising that ABC refused to report on the global elite’s annual confab in Greece near Athens last week, a story that dwarves this much vaunted “meeting of the rich” in terms of both the number and the influence of the numerous powerbrokers who attended.

Bilderberg 2009 coverage was left to a gaggle of alternative media citizen journalists who were harassed, stalked, detained and physically assaulted every step of the way by secret police and security goons at the behest of Bilderberg.

ABC News’ “meeting of the rich” exclusive is a pathetic attempt at convincing its declining audience that the corporate media has any interest in uncovering the secret agenda of the elite, when in reality the story is nothing more than a sophistic exercise in ass kissing and creeping adulation for people like David Rockefeller and Ted Turner, who are portrayed as philanthropic saviors of the planet, when they are in fact nothing more than globalist scum intent on destroying U.S. sovereignty and eliminating us “useless feeders” by means of population reduction programs which they have routinely advocated.

Oprah is worth something like $2.7 billion.  You don't consider that to be rich?

 ???

Last time I checked she wasn't printing her own money.  Now that it's mainstream news the bilderberg group is making moves across the world it makes sense to me they'd enlist hollywood's "richest" people to make it seem like they're running the world.  In American Idol world I doubt people will see the difference between Oprah and Queen Beatrix.

This is being billed as a "Philanthropists Summit" supposedly put together by Gates and Buffett.  Yet, Rockefeller is there and it was held at Rockefeller University. 


First item on the agenda: fixing the world

Richest philanthropists join forces to help charities struggling through recession

By Stephen Foley in New York

There are the great, and there are the good, and then there are those who are both – and in a plush Manhattan residence overlooking the East River earlier this month, America's greatest philanthropists assembled for a closed-doors meeting to discuss how best to tackle some of the world's most pressing problems, from disease to education to poverty reduction.

This first Philanthropists Summit was put together discreetly by the Microsoft founder, Bill Gates, and the investment guru Warren Buffett, the world's wealthiest and second-wealthiest men respectively. And the list of attendees reads like a page from the Forbes magazine Rich List.

The event comes at a time of great difficulty for many charities, whose rich donors have seen much of their wealth evaporate with the credit crisis and whose own endowments have suffered big losses.

Even the existence of the meeting was kept quiet and details have only been seeping out over the past few days, igniting the blogosphere with conspiracy theories. What could the likes of Oprah Winfrey, the New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, the currency speculator George Soros and the media mogul Ted Turner be cooking up between them?

The meeting was held on 5 May at the private residence of the president of Rockefeller University, whose trustee, David Rockefeller, scion of the oil dynasty, helped sort out the venue. Between them, the attendees are worth more than $120bn (£76bn) and have donated more than $72bn to charity since 1996.

Mr Gates heads the world's richest and most powerful philanthropic foundation, named after himself and his wife, Melinda. In 2006, his friend and bridge partner Mr Buffett said he would hand most of his own fortune to the Gates Foundation to give away. Additional collaborations such as this were most likely on the informal agenda at the 5 May meeting, along with ways to encourage other members of the elite billionaires club to join the great global wealth giveaway.

"It wasn't secret," said Patty Stonesifer, the former chief executive of the Gates Foundation, who attended the meeting. "Bill and Warren hoped to do this occasionally. They sent out an invite and people came."

In their letter of invitation, Messrs Gates, Buffett and Rockefeller cited the worldwide recession and an urgent need to plan for the future. They said they wanted to hear the views of a broad range of major figures in the fields of finance and philanthropy.

As details of the meeting emerged on the blog Irish Central earlier this week, Mr Bloomberg – whose $16bn fortune is founded on a financial news business that bears his name – was asked about the event. He characterised it as a simple and informal gathering of friends. "All my friends are philanthropic," he said, "or they probably wouldn't be my friends".

Title: World's Elite Make Population Control #1 Priority

World's Elite Make Population Control #1 Priority

http://www.lifesitenews.com/

Even though recent demographic study has revealed a great looming threat of demographic winter, the richest of the rich seem to believe that overpopulation is the top priority for their philanthropic endeavors. John Harlow writes today in The Times about a secret meeting of the global financial elite, convened by Microsoft mogul Bill Gates, at which attendees agreed that curbing the world's population should be their top priority.

In "Billionaire club in bid to curb overpopulation," Harlow recounts that a May 5 meeting took place in Manhattan that included "David Rockefeller Jr, the patriarch of America's wealthiest dynasty, Warren Buffett and George Soros, the financiers, Michael Bloomberg, the mayor of New York, and the media moguls Ted Turner and Oprah Winfrey." Harlow notes that the general agreement that population control was a major priority came at Gates' instigation.

Gates' enthusiasm for population control comes as no surprise since he has himself admitted to being strongly influenced by the views of Thomas Malthus, the fear-mongering overpopulation guru of the late 18th century. He has also admitted that his father headed a local Planned Parenthood while he was growing up.

Of note, The Times reports that at the secret meeting, participants "discussed joining forces to overcome political and religious obstacles to change."

The Times paraphrased the account given by one attendee of the secret meeting who spoke anonymously, saying, "a consensus emerged that they would back a strategy in which population growth would be tackled as a potentially disastrous environmental, social and industrial threat."

"This is something so nightmarish that everyone in this group agreed it needs big-brain answers," said the guest. "They need to be independent of government agencies, which are unable to head off the disaster we all see looming." In answer to a question about the secrecy, the guest replied, "They wanted to speak rich to rich without worrying anything they said would end up in the newspapers, painting them as an alternative world government."

In sharp contrast to the ideas of the billionaires, a recent film containing the views of some prominent demographers has sounded the alarm on underpopulation rather than overpopulation. Promoting the film 'Demographic Winter' at a recent event, celebrated columnist Don Feder said that the demographic problem of worldwide declining birthrates "could result in the greatest crisis humanity will confront in this century" as "all over the world, children are disappearing."

Feder noted, "In 30 years, worldwide, birth rates have fallen by more than 50%. In 1979, the average woman on this planet had 6 children. Today, the average is 2.9 children, and falling." He explained the situation noting, "demographers tell us that with a birthrate of 1.3, everything else being equal, a nation will lose half of its population every 45 years."

Now being billed as "Good Club"

Secret ‘Good Club’ holds first meeting in New York

THE OBSERVER, NEW YORK
Monday, Jun 01, 2009, Page 11

This is the Good Club, the name given to the tiny global elite of billionaire philanthropists who recently held their first and highly secretive meeting in the heart of New York City.

The names of some of the members are familiar figures: Microsoft chairman Bill Gates, stock investors George Soros, Warren Buffett, entertainer Oprah Winfrey, banker David Rockefeller and media entrepreneur Ted Turner. But there are others, too, like business giants Eli and Edythe Broad, who are equally wealthy but less well known. All told, its members are worth US$125 billion.

The meeting — called by Gates, Buffett and Rockefeller — was held in response to the global economic downturn and the numerous health and environmental crises that are plaguing the globe. It was, in some ways, a summit to save the world.

No wonder that when news of the secret meeting leaked, via the seemingly unusual source of an Irish-American Web site, it sent shock waves through the worlds of philanthropy, development aid and even diplomacy.

“It is really unprecedented. It is the first time a group of donors of this level of wealth has met like that behind closed doors in what is in essence a billionaires’ club,” said Ian Wilhelm, senior writer at the Chronicle of Philanthropy magazine.

The existence of the Good Club has struck many as a two-edged sword. On one hand, they represent a new golden age of philanthropy, harking back to the early 20th century when the likes of John D. Rockefeller, Vanderbilt and Carnegie became famous for their good works. Yet the reach and power of the Good Club are truly new. Its members control vast wealth — and with that wealth comes huge power that could reshape nations according to their will. Few doubt the good intentions of Gates and Winfrey and their kind. They have already improved the lives of millions of poor people across the developing world. But can the richest people on earth actually save the planet?

That the group should have met at all is indicative of the radical ways in which philanthropy has changed over the past two decades. The main force behind that change is Gates and his decision to donate almost all his fortune to bettering the world. Unlike the great philanthropists of former ages, Gates is young enough and active enough to take a full hands-on role in his philanthropy and craft it after his own ideas. That example has been followed by others, most notably Soros, Turner and Buffett. Indeed, this new form of philanthropy, where retired elite businessmen try to change the world, has even been dubbed “Billanthropy” after Gates. Another description is “philanthro-capitalism.”

Yet the implications of the development of philanthro-­capitalism are profound. It was fitting that the Good Club was meeting near the UN. The club members’ extreme wealth makes it as powerful as some of the nations with seats inside that august chamber.

Proponents of philanthro-­capitalism would argue that they are also more effective in doing good for ordinary people. Indeed the club’s members have given away about US$70 billion in the past 12 years. That is far beyond what many individual countries can afford to do with their own social policies and aid budgets.

“They have assets that rival the social spending budgets of many countries,” said Paul Schervish, director of Boston College’s Center on Wealth and Philanthropy.

But there is a potential downside to the growth of these “uber donors,” especially if the whims of individuals start to take precedence over the expertise of professionals.

The strange truth is that giving away billions of dollars is difficult and fraught with risk. There can be waste, mismanagement and poor investment. At the same time it can actually do harm.

“If you are putting enormous amounts of money into a community that can’t cope with it, then you can implode that community,” said Gayle Peterson, co-founder of Headwaters Group Philanthropic Services.

Some people are crying conspiracy. That idea has particular power on the Christian right of the US, which has reacted angrily to the idea that the club discussed birth control and overpopulation. Experts in the philanthropy field think that this negative image can be countered by more openness for future Good Club meetings.

“If they do hold more meetings, and every indication is that they will, I think people would want them to be more public. After all, they can make decisions that affect millions of peoples’ lives,” Wilhelm said.

That is true. If the members of the Good Club wish to wield their undoubted power, they may have to get used to the idea of doing it more openly.

The New "improved" "Gospel of Wealth" thats been at work for a hundred years (http://forum.prisonplanet.com/index.php?topic=108409.msg665315#msg665315)

These systems effectively take money away from workers producing the products (under pay) and the buyers of the products (over pay) and concentrates the wealth into hands that work to perpetuating a system of economic slavery. [and Eugenics}

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Gospel_of_Wealth

"Wealth", or what is more commonly known as "The Gospel of Wealth",[1] is an essay written by Andrew Carnegie in 1889 that described the responsibility of philanthropy by the new upper class of self-made rich. The central thesis of Carnegie's essay was the peril of allowing large sums of money to be passed into the hands of persons or organizations ill-equipped mentally or emotionally to cope with them. As a result, the wealthy entrepreneur must assume the responsibility of distributing his fortune in a way that it will be put to good use, and not wasted on frivolous expenditure. The very existence of poverty in a capitalistic society could be negated by wealthy philanthropic businessmen and women. [ Hah! they perpetuate the system of poverty]

America's richest out to limit third world population growth

http://www.etaiwannews.com/etn/news_content.php?id=971213&lang=eng_news&cate_img=317.jpg&cate_rss=news_Features


What will emerge from a secret meeting of American billionaires about reducing population in the Third World?

I am not a fan of conspiracy theories. I do not believe that there is a monolithic cabal plotting to take over planet earth. But plenty of energetic people are hatching grandiose schemes. And when you put a bunch of these folks in the same room behind closed doors you end up with trouble.

Of course they have the good of humanity at heart. But history shows that there exist plenty of humanity-hating humanitarians. Unfortunately, new examples are not hard to come by. The latest is a gathering reported in the London Sunday Times. Some of America's leading billionaires met for a private powwow in Manhattan on May 5 at the home of Sir Paul Nurse, a British Nobel prize biochemist and president of the private Rockefeller University. It was so hush-hush that some of their aides were told that they were attending a "security briefing".

A Gates initiative

Here is how the Sunday Times describes the meeting: "The philanthropists who attended a summit convened on the initiative of Bill Gates, the Microsoft co-founder, discussed joining forces to overcome political and religious obstacles to change. Described as the Good Club by one insider, it included David Rockefeller Jr, the patriarch of America's wealthiest dynasty, Warren Buffett and George Soros, the financiers, Michael Bloomberg, the mayor of New York, and the media moguls Ted Turner and Oprah Winfrey."

The chief issue, at the suggestion of Bill Gates, was "overpopulation". The article ends this way: "Another guest said there was 'nothing as crude as a vote' but a consensus emerged that they would back a strategy in which population growth would be tackled as a potentially disastrous environmental, social and industrial threat. This is something so nightmarish that everyone in this group agreed it needs big-brain answers," said the guest. They need to be independent of government agencies, which are unable to head off the disaster we all see looming. Why all the secrecy? They wanted to speak rich to rich without worrying anything they said would end up in the newspapers, painting them as an alternative world government, he said.

Political & religious barriers

Indeed. So how exactly does our alternative world government intend to "overcome political and religious obstacles"? Will Bill Gates apply the ruthless monopolistic business strategies he perfected at Microsoft to reduce the population of developing countries? What pressure will the world's richest man apply to his opponents to persuade them to follow Netscape into oblivion?

Gates and the others are probably still formulating their tactics. The billionaires each had 15 minutes to present their favourite cause. These included such ideas as supervising aid spending, and setting up rural schools and water systems. Over dinner they tried to settle upon an "umbrella cause" which would include all of their interests. "Taking their cue from Gates," reports the Sunday Times, "they agreed that overpopulation was a priority." However, this could rattle "some Third World politicians" who are old-fashioned enough to think that "contraception and female education weaken traditional values".

Is it only Third World politicians who think that contraception weakens traditional values? How about the rest of us?

Isn't fertility a personal decision? As population expert Steven Mosher asks, "What happens when governments, often in response to pressure from abroad, attempt to directly regulate the fertility of their people? Both human rights and primary health care, it turns out, tend to suffer setbacks. Urging governments to interfere in the intimate decisions of couples concerning childbearing does not encourage limited government and the rule of law, but their opposite, an intrusive bureaucracy and human rights abuses. Nor does concentrating scarce health care resources on fertility reduction programs lead to improvements in the general state of health of a population."

As Mosher argues in his important book, Population Control: Real Costs, Illusory Benefits,, "For over half century, the population controllers have perpetrated a gigantic, costly and inhumane fraud upon the human race, defrauding the people of the developing world of their progeny and the people of the developed world of their pocketbooks."

Of course fat cat elites will suffer nothing from such programs, just the poor and voiceless. But never mind, it is for the good of humanity.

Get a load of this BS (BTW This is taken from a satirical site)

Billionaires Laugh Maniacally About Your Greenpeace Donation

http://www.glossynews.com/artman/publish/billionaires-hate-mock-you-1784.shtml

It is one of the most elite clubs in the world. The Good Club is made up of the worlds richest and most generous people, who right now, are making the $10 you give to Greenpeace each month look as pitiful as it really is. The Good Club recently held its first meeting, rumoured to be the biggest love-in/mutual back-slapping event since Bob Geldof gave hand relief to Bono at Live 8.

The members combined wealth is US$125 billion, which, to put that number in perspective, is US$10 billion more than New Zealand's GDP. The club was formed by nerd overlord Bill Gates and includes Oprah Winfrey - yoyo dieting fanatic and portrayer of mindless drivel, David Rockefeller Jr - the son of the son of a rich petroleum tyrant and Ted Turner - creator of CNN, Americas largest news parody organisation.

The group also includes other immensely rich business men who you've likely never heard of, but, could buy and sell you just for the hell of it.

Few doubt the good intentions of Gates and co. who have already improved the lives of millions of the worlds poor. However, critics are asking, can the worlds richest people save the planet? We put this question to our economics and foreign policy expert John Polowski, he stated: "I'm not sure if the world's richest people will be able to save the planet, mainly because it's literally full of billions of self-serving arseholes.

That said, we've given the poor a few thousand years to sort their shit out and they've accomplished sweet f**k all. I mean look at Africa, they're mainly interested in condom-less free humping and where's that got them?"

We asked John if the Good Club could do a better job than leading political leaders, he replied; "Well more than likely, like the poor, politicians are also only really interested in condom-less free humping, just look at the last G8 and G20, what got accomplished there? Bugger all, that's what! At least the Good Club pay for there own meals, travel and hotel expenses."

The members, along with Gates, have donated over US$70 million since 1996. Which makes Hayley Westenra and her attempt to fob off a couple of bikes in Africa look like the the pathetic pile of crap it is.

Greg Jameson, an avid cyclist from Birkenhead, who raised $5000 by being sponsored to ride from the top of New Zealand to the bottom said: "Well, yes the good club does kind of shit all over I'm doing, thanks."

Sharon Sharonsin, a racist chemist shop owner from Mt Albert said: "So does that mean I can stop giving to that cult, oh what are they called? Christian Children's Fund, that's it!"

However critics are questioning if this club has been set up for good, then why has it been meeting behind closed doors? Suggestions have been made that the group are in fact intent on world domination, throwing over one military dictatorship at a time, until they will rule the world. It is rumoured they will start with Fiji as a warm up as they believe Frank Bainimarama is ready to hand control over for a crate Fiji Bitter.

WETZSTEIN: Billionaires take aim at population

http://washingtontimes.com/news/2009/jun/14/wetzstein-billionaires-take-aim-population/

The media recently was atwitter about a secret meeting of a so-called "billionaires club."

Irishcentral.com broke the news May 18, and subsequent news stories pitched it as a gathering of superheroes.

The attendees — Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, George Soros, Oprah Winfrey, Ted Turner, Michael R. Bloomberg, David Rockefeller Sr., David Rockefeller Jr., and other business tycoons — are worth at least $120 billion by Forbes magazine estimates.

As committed philanthropists, the billionaires are worried about the global recession and the plight of their fellow man, sources said. They want to figure out how they can "join together to do more," a Gates Foundation adviser told ABCNews.com.

But then a May 24 London Times story by John Harlow revealed a skunk at the garden party.

"Taking their cue from Gates, they agreed that overpopulation was a priority," Mr. Harlow wrote. That led to discussions about how they could use their wealth to "slow the growth of the world's population," "speed up improvements in health and education" and "join forces to overcome political and religious obstacles to change," wrote Mr. Harlow, who spoke with named and unnamed sources about the May 5 meeting in New York.

The Times article sparked more articles and blog commentaries, including one with a headline reading "Humanitarians: Please Spare the Humans."

Alas, there is no public transcript of the meeting, so there's no way to verify what was said.

Two observations.

First, overpopulation fears are so last century.

The billionaires seem to be "working with a 1960s paradigm," said Barry McLerran, producer of a 2008 independent film, "Demographic Winter," and the upcoming "The Demographic Bomb: Demography Is Destiny."

"Instead of overpopulation, the crisis that confronts us in this century will be how to keep economies and nations going in the face of the coming depopulation," Mr. McLerran said.

The world's population is expected to rise from its current 6.7 billion to 9.1 billion in 2050, the United Nations Population Division said in March. However, it also shows that the number of babies, aged 0-4, will peak in 2015 and drop for at least 35 years. Fewer babies means fewer people in the long run.

People who think people are the problem will see this as great news. But that leads into my second observation, which is that solving overpopulation is just the same tired, myopic grand plan some elitists have been promoting since the Eisenhower years.

In fact, family planning seems like a veritable obsession with some members of the Rockefeller family.

In the 1950s, "one man proved pivotal" in bringing the family planning movement together and orchestrating the campaign to change federal policy on this issue, and that was John D. Rockefeller III, grandson of the oil tycoon, Donald T. Critchlow wrote in his authoritative history of U.S. family planning, "Intended Consequences, Birth Control, Abortion and the Federal Government in Modern America."

John D. Rockefeller III died in 1978, but his younger brother, David Sr., who turned 94 this week and his son, David Jr., 67, seem willing to continue the battle.

It just seems so ironic that an American family dynasty would spend untold days and millions of dollars, even into its twilight years, searching for new ways to get other people to voluntarily extinguish their family lines.

To me, the big problem isn't too many people, especially when some futurists estimate that, with technological advances, the planet easily can accommodate 100 billion people.

The problem is the lack of respect men and women have for themselves and for each other, and their mutual failure to value all human life.

The truly noble quest is updating social norms and strengthening and uplifting the best models for families. If any billionaires want to "do more" good, that would be a good place to start.

Title: Elites Launch "Global Impact Investing Network" (HINT: It's Eugenics)

Elites Launch "Global Impact Investing Network"
Rockefeller Foundation to head the group, J.P. Morgan, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Al Gore, Deutsche Bank, others band together


By Daniel Taylor

Tax exempt foundations, banks and philanthropic organizations have been hard at work in the United States for decades molding the country to their liking. The schooling system, media, medical institutions, and foreign policy of the United States have all been influenced by them. Today, these foundations are partnering with global banking powerhouses in order to create the "Global Impact Investing Network" (GIIN) which aims to spearhead a new form of investment.

The GIIN, headed by Antony Bugg-Levine, the current director of the Rockefeller Foundation, will "help solve social and environmental problems" by encouraging investment that will bring both profit and produce real world change. According to the GIIN website (http://www.globalimpactinvestingnetwork.org/cgi-bin/iowa/aboutus/history/index.html), "The Global Impact Investing Network was conceived in October 2007, when the Rockefeller Foundation gathered a small group of investors to discuss the needs of the emergent impact investing industry." The website states,

Quote
"In June 2008, a broader group of 40 investors from around the world met to discuss what it would take for the impact investing industry to be able to solve more social and environmental challenges with greater efficiency. They organized behind a number of initiatives, including the creation of a global network of leading impact investors, the development of a standardized framework for assessing social and environmental impact, and a development of a working group of investors focused on sustainable agriculture in sub-Saharan Africa."

In other words, the establishment is seeking to direct the wealth of the world's most powerful foundations and individuals towards the realization of their agenda. This has already been happening for decades in a shrewd and veiled manner, but this new initiative is an open gathering of these globalist interests. The GIIN will undoubtedly be used as a public relations stunt for banks and moneyed elites to brush up their stained image through "socially conscious" investments. If it succeeds, GIIN will attempt to mold industry and business by "screening" out investments for Co2 emitters and others deemed to be unworthy.

A few of the banks and organizations involved with GIIN include: Acumen Fund, The Annie E. Casey Foundation, The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Calvert Foundation, Capricorn Investment Group, Citigroup, Deutsche Bank, Equilibrium Capital, Generation Investment Management, Gray Ghost Ventures, IGNIA, J.P. Morgan, Lundin for Africa, Lunt Family Office (Armonia), Omidyar Network, Prudential, The Rockefeller Foundation, Root Capital, Shorebank/NCIF, Trans-Century, Triodos Investment Management, and Wolfensohn & Company.

Some of the same individuals and organizations involved with the Global Impact Investing Network recently met in New York in May of 2009 at the home of Sir Paul Nurse, president of Rockefeller University. According to the London Times (http://loveforlife.com.au/content/09/07/15/billionaire-club-bid-curb-overpopulation-americas-richest-people-meet-discuss-ways-) (original link  (http://www.timesonline.co.uk/tol/news/world/us_and_americas/article6350303.ece) no longer active), the meeting was so secret that, "...some of the billionaires’ aides were told they were at 'security briefings'". David Rockefeller Jr, Bill Gates, Warren Buffett, George Soros, Michael Bloomberg, Ted Turner and Oprah Winfrey were all in attendance. The Times reports, "Over dinner they discussed how they might settle on an “umbrella cause” that could harness their interests." The article continues, "Taking their cue from Gates they agreed that overpopulation was a priority." The Times interviewed a guest at the meeting, who said that the group wanted to meet in secret because they didn't want their statements ending up in the media, "painting them as an alternative world government."

Indeed, this group has and is currently acting as an "alternative world government." While these foundations aren't busy partnering with global banking institutions, the Secretary General of the United Nations is praising their influence in supporting the activities of the UN. In an interview with the Seattle Times, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon was asked, "Some say the emergence of super rich philanthropies like the Gates Foundation has undermined the effectiveness of the U.N. and its member organizations, like the WHO." Moon responded,

"On the contrary that is what we really want -- contributions from the business community as well as philanthropies. We need to have political support, but it doesn't give us all that we need. NGOs and philanthropies and many foundations such as Bill Gates Foundation -- they're taking a very important role. The United Nations stands in the center of mobilizing and raising awareness of climate change..."

For some of the groups involved in "raising awareness of climate change", altruistic motives seem to fade into the background when we find that significant financial gain will be reaped from carbon trading schemes and other new financial programs. In 2004 Al Gore teamed up with David Blood, former head of Goldman Sachs asset management, to form Generation Investment Management, appropriately deemed "Blood and Gore". The firm, which Gore chairs, is involved with various "green" investments, including carbon credits. Gore's promotion of a carbon tax system carries obvious conflicts of interest. Additionally, GIM is one of the top 10 shareholders of the Chicago Climate Exchange. Gore's Generation Investment Management - which is a founding member of GIIN - is listed in the GIIN report, Investing for Social & Environmental Impact, as a prime example of impact investing.

The gathering of such high powered organizations, banks and philanthropies involved with GIIN will undoubtedly raise red flags with informed individuals. The support of population reduction by these groups in third world countries is just one of those red flags. This is exactly why Kevin Jones, a member of GIIN, is encouraging a marketing campaign to counter these negative connotations. Jones writes, "The history of colonization and empire mandate GIIN be aware of funder and fundee power imbalances every step of the way. GIIN cannot look like another version of condescending western philanthropy."

The Global Impact Investing Network is a globalist initiative that is worth keeping an eye on.

Saw him a couple of days ago.
Maybe he is not a member?
Has anything filtered about him? I am very curious to know what "club" he belongs to.
He has certainly got the Billions with two of the world's biggest mega-yachts cruising at the same time.

EXCLUSIVE: Outlook Gloomy at Secret Billionaire Meeting
Published: Friday, 10 Sep 2010 | 2:02 PM ET
http://www.cnbc.com/id/39097299
By: John Melloy
Executive Producer, Fast Money

For 25 years, legendary Wall Street strategist Byron Wien, now with The Blackstone Group, has held summer meetings with high net worth individuals to get their outlook on the global economy and investing. This year’s group, totaling fifty individuals and including more than 10 billionaires, was decidedly pessimistic on the U.S. economy, investment opportunities and the Obama administration.

“They saw the United States in a long-term slow growth environment with the near-term risk of recession quite real,” said Wien, in a commentary to Blackstone clients. “The Obama administration was viewed as hostile to business and that discouraged both hiring and investment. Companies and entrepreneurs were reluctant to add workers because they didn’t know what their healthcare costs or taxes were going to be.” The strategist, whose “Ten Surprises” predictions for the New Year became required reading on Wall Street when he was at Morgan Stanley, declined to name the participants in this year’s two so-called benchmark lunches. However, the gatherings, which typically take place out on the eastern end of Long Island, have included in the past such investing legends as George Soros, Julian Roberson, and James Chanos, according to an account of one such lunch in 2007 by The Financial Times.

“The economic pessimism expressed by the wealthy is completely understandable,” said Jim Iuorio, a trader with TJM Institutional Services. “From the start of the campaign that led up to the ‘08 election, the wealthy have been depicted as villains by the Democratic party. Even though the political tide seems to be turning, real change is months or years away.”

Blackstone Group's Byron Wien: Ten Surprises For 2010
http://www.marketfolly.com/2010/04/blackstone-groups-byron-wien-ten.html

Byron Wien, Senior Managing Director at The Blackstone Group pens an annual list of surprises each year and below are his predictions for 2010. Although the information was released earlier this year, many outlets just covered the bullet points of his predictions and not the entirety of his research presentation. As such, we wanted to post up the full piece for those interested. Wien of course was previously the Chief Investment Strategist at hedge fund Pequot Capital before they shut down. His list now joins the rest of our 2010 crystal ball coverage as we'd previously posted up Doug Kass' 2010 predictions as well as a prediction of the top 10 investment themes for 2010.

Here is the brief summary of Wien's 2010 predictions that you may have seen floating around the internet:

1. The US economy grows at a 5% real rate and unemployment drops below 9%.
2. The Federal Reserve hikes the fed funds rate to 2% by year-end.
3. Ten year treasury yields rise above 5.5%.
4. The US dollar rallies against the yen and the euro.
5. The S&P rallies to 1300 in the first half of the year, declines to 1000, then settles around 1115.
6. Japan becomes the best performing market.
7. President Obama endorses nuclear power development.
8. The Obama administration becomes energized via US economic improvement.
9. Financial service legislation will be passed (but in a softer form than originally feared).
10. Civil unrest in Iran peaks.


An interesting set of predictions from Wien, and you can already see how some of them are playing out like he predicted as the S&P marches higher and treasury yields have started to jump as well. We'll watch with interest to see if some of his second half of the year predictions come true.

Title: Outlook Gloomy at Secret Billionaire Meeting

For 25 years, legendary Wall Street strategist Byron Wien, now with The Blackstone Group, has held summer meetings with high net worth individuals to get their outlook on the global economy and investing. This year’s group, totaling fifty individuals and including more than 10 billionaires, was decidedly pessimistic on the U.S. economy, investment opportunities and the Obama administration.

The Global Impact Investing Network was conceived in October 2007, when the Rockefeller Foundation gathered a small group of investors to discuss the needs of the emergent impact investing industry.

In June 2008, a broader group of 40 investors from around the world met to discuss what it would take for the impact investing industry to be able to solve more social and environmental challenges with greater efficiency. They organized behind a number of initiatives, including the creation of a global network of leading impact investors, the development of a standardized framework for assessing social and environmental impact, and a development of a working group of investors focused on sustainable agriculture in sub-Saharan Africa.

Oprah Winfrey Joins World's Richest Philanthropists For Secret Meeting
by Deidre Woollard (RSS feed)
 May 20th 2009 at 8:01PM

How would you like to be a fly on the wall for this event, a secret meeting of some of the world's biggest givers?

On May 5, Bill Gates, David Rockefeller Sr., Oprah Winfrey, Warren Buffet and other leading philanthropists met in New York to discuss the world's problems.

The high-profile confab was organized by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.



Details of what the group discussed have not been made public but according to IrishCentral.com, each philanthropist was given 15 minutes to talk about their view of the future and how the team, which has donated billions to charitable causes, can help at a time when charity donations are falling.

What is particularly compelling about the group assembled, which also reportedly included Eli Broad and Michael Bloomberg, is that most of them have their own foundation and areas of focus when it comes to philanthropy. I can't help but imagine this meeting as some sort of Justice League scenario complete with flapping capes. Sounds more compelling than any summer blockbuster.

The Bilderberg Plan for 2009: Remaking the Global Political Economy (http://forum.prisonplanet.com/index.php?topic=107897.msg658440#msg658440)

The Secret Meeting of Billionaires

The meeting being referred to was a secret meeting where, “A dozen of the richest people in the world met for an unprecedented private gathering at the invitation of Bill Gates and Warren Buffett to talk about giving away money,” held at Rockefeller University, and included notable philanthropists such as Gates, Buffett, New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, George Soros, Eli Broad, Oprah Winfrey, David Rockefeller Sr. and Ted Turner.

One attendee stated that, “It wasn’t secret,” but that, “It was meant to be a gathering among friends and colleagues. It was something folks have been discussing for a long time. Bill and Warren hoped to do this occasionally. They sent out an invite and people came.” Chronicle of Philanthropy editor Stacy Palmer said, “Given how serious these economic times are, I don't think it's surprising these philanthropists came together,” and that, “They don't typically get together and ask each other for advice.” The three hosts of the meeting were Buffet, Gates and David Rockefeller.[5] [See: Appendix 2: Bilderberg Connections to the Billionaire’s Meeting].

Bilderberg founding member David Rockefeller, Honourary Chairman of the Council on Foreign Relations, Honourary Chairman and Founder of the Trilateral Commission, Chairman of the Council of the Americas and the Americas Society, former Chairman and CEO of Chase Manhattan.

At the meeting, “participants steadfastly refused to reveal the content of the discussion. Some cited an agreement to keep the meeting confidential.

Spokesmen for Mr. Buffett, Mr. Bloomberg, Mr. Gates, Mr. Rockefeller, Mr. Soros and Ms. Winfrey and others dutifully declined comment, though some confirmed attendance.”[6] Reports indicate that, “They discussed how to address the global slump and expand their charitable activities in the downturn.”[7]


The UK newspaper The Times reported that these “leading billionaires have met secretly to consider how their wealth could be used to slow the growth of the world’s population,” and that they “discussed joining forces to overcome political and religious obstacles to change.”

 Interestingly, “The informal afternoon session was so discreet that some of the billionaires’ aides were told they were at ‘security briefings’.” Further, “The billionaires were each given 15 minutes to present their favourite cause. Over dinner they discussed how they might settle on an ‘umbrella cause’ that could harness their interests,” and what was decided upon was that,

“they agreed that overpopulation was a priority.”

Ultimately, “a consensus emerged that they would back a strategy in which population growth would be tackled as a potentially disastrous environmental, social and industrial threat,”

and that, “They need to be independent of government agencies, which are unable to head off the disaster we all see looming.”

One guest at the meeting said that, “They wanted to speak rich to rich without worrying anything they said would end up in the newspapers, painting them as an alternative world government.”[8]

The Rich Get … Together (Shhh, It Was a Secret)
May 20, 2009, 1:25 pm
By A. G. SULZBERGER [ ie of the NYT dynasty didn't know about the meeting?  riiiggghhhttt ]

There are many fewer American billionaires these days, so one might think those who are left would attract more attention when they moved en masse. Yet some of America’s more prominent and successful capitalists managed to meet this month at Rockefeller University on the Upper East Side to discuss philanthropy. It took weeks before anyone noticed.
 
News of the meeting was reported on Monday by the site Irish Central.
 
The attendees at the May 5 event seemed pulled from the Forbes list of the world’s wealthiest people: Bill Gates (1), Warren E. Buffett (2), Michael R. Bloomberg (17), George Soros (29), Eli Broad (93), Oprah Winfrey (234), David Rockefeller Sr. (305), Ted Turner (376), Peter G. Peterson (430), Julian H. Robertson Jr. (559) and John Morgridge (647).

Based on February estimates by Forbes, the room had a net worth about $120 billion, or nearly as much as New York State’s annual budget.
 
Even as details trickled out this week, participants steadfastly refused to reveal the content of the discussion. Some cited an agreement to keep the meeting confidential. Spokesmen for Mr. Buffett, Mr. Bloomberg, Mr. Gates, Mr. Rockefeller, Mr. Soros and Ms. Winfrey and others dutifully declined comment, though some confirmed attendance.
 
“It was a private meeting,” said Karen Denne, a spokeswoman for the Broad Foundation, which runs Mr. Broad’s charitable efforts.

“Essentially it was a brainstorming session where people who are very charitable talked about charity in today’s economic climate,” said an assistant to one of the participants, who was told about the discussion but asked not to be identified because of the request for secrecy.
 
The participants all have reputations as philanthropists, and many have teamed up on causes in the past. Mr. Buffett, for instance, recently pledged to donate the bulk of his fortune, currently estimated at $37 billion, to the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. Together the members of the meeting had donated more than $72.5 billion to charitable causes since 1996, according to The Chronicle of Philanthropy.

Details about how the event came together were just as closely guarded. The person said to be the organizer, Patricia Q. Stonesifer, former chief executive of the Gates foundation and currently chairwoman of the Smithsonian Institution, did not return messages requesting comment.

The gathering started at 3 p.m. on May 5, a Tuesday, and lasted through dinner at the private residence on the Rockefeller campus of Paul Nurse, the university’s president, while he was out of town, said Joseph Bonner, a spokesman for the university.

The university became involved after the elder Mr. Rockefeller, its former longtime chairman, requested the university to provide space for the meeting, Mr. Bonner said. “Our role was just to provide a site for those people to meet,” he said.

Too Many People Going Underground
Too Many Reaching For A Piece Of Cake
Too Many People Pulled And Pushed Around
Too Many Waiting For That Lucky Break
That Was Your First Mistake
You Took Your Lucky Break And Broke It In Two
Now What Can Be Done For You
You Broke It In Two

Too Many People Sharing Party Lines
Too Many People Never Sleeping Late
Too Many People Paying Parking Fines
Too Many Hungry People Losing Weight

That Was Your First Mistake
You Took Your Lucky Break And Broke It In Two
Now What Can Be Done For You
You Broke It In Two

Too Many People Preaching Practices
Don't Let Them Tell You What You Wanna Be
Too Many People Holding Back, This Is
Crazy And Maybe It's Not Like Me

That Was Your Last Mistake
I Find My Love Awake And Waiting To Be
Now What Can Be Done For You
She's Waiting For Me

NBC tweeted the above to its 1.77 million followers after Golden Globes host Seth Meyers jokingly forbade Winfrey from running for president, noting he did the same with Donald Trump in 2011.

The tweet also prompted the now standard speculation about media bias and partiality.
