The Rothschild family (some little knowledge about the Rothschild family)
Who is the Rothschild? If a financial professional has never heard of the name “Rothschild”, it is hard to imagine a soldier not knowing Napoleon, and a physicist not knowing Einstein. The strange thing is that it is not surprising that this name is very strange to the vast majority of Chinese people, but it has such a great impact on the past, present and future of the Chinese people and even the international people, while being so low-profile and invisible. But amazing.
Strict clan control, completely opaque black-box operation, accurate harmony like a wall clock, always getting information earlier than shopping malls, indifference inside and outside, endless interest in money and wealth Desire, as well as the genius foresight based on all these, made the Rothschild family invincible in the harsh vortex of international finance, politics and struggles for more than 200 years, and established the largest financial empire in human history so far. Hummel Amschel Rothschild, son of Moses Rothschild of Amschel, was born in the Jewish settlement of Frankfurt in 1744. Amschel Moses Rothschild was born around 1710 as a money changer who traded with the royal family of Hesse. Amschel Rothschild built a financial family himself, and the empire expanded by sending his five sons to major financial centers in Europe. Clenched in the fist of the family coat of arms are five arrows representing the five empires founded by Mayer Amschel Rothschild’s five sons. Also quoted from Psalm 127: “As the arrows in the hand of a warrior, so are the sons of young men”. Below the shield is the family motto: Unity, Integrity, Diligence. The famous British historian Paul Johnson wrote, “The Rothschilds are elusive. No book about them reveals the truth, most of them are just nonsense. A woman once planned to write a book called “Rothschild The Lies of the Childe Family,” but eventually gave up. She said it was easy to spot the lies, but the truth was nowhere to be found.” He also wrote that some Jewish bankers who served in the early state courts served as the prime ministers of Europe’s Resource web nobles provide funding and management, but they often lose their wealth to violence and confiscation. Unlike them, the new multinational banks created by the Rothschilds were immune to local shocks. Household assets exist in the form of financial instruments such as stocks or bonds, so they can be circulated globally. Another key element of Amschel Rothschild’s successful strategy is that their bank remains in the hands of family members, which allows them to keep the total amount of assets completely private.
In the 19th century, the Rothschild family was the most gifted family in the world at that time, and it was also the most gifted family in modern international history. The family wealth is spread over many heirs and now includes a very wide range of categories including financial services, real estate, mining, electricity, mixed farming, brewingLiquor and nonprofits.
The old Rothschild listed his last words before his death in 1812: (1) All important positions in the clan bank must be held by clan insiders and must not be held by outsiders. Only male clan members can participate in clan business activities.
(2) Clan marriages can only be carried out between cousins to avoid wealth dilution and outflow. This regulation was strictly enforced in the early stage, and later relaxed to intermarry with other Jewish banking clans.
(3) It is expressly forbidden to publish the industry to the outside world. (4) In terms of property inheritance, lawyers are definitely prohibited from intervening. (5) As the leader of each family, the eldest son of each family can choose the second son to succeed as long as the clan agrees. Anyone who violates the will will lose all inheritance rights.
The reason for the decline of the Rothschild family is that in 1865, the Rothschild family made a mistake in their strategic judgment and believed that the U.S. economy would not have substantial development, so they canceled the of all branches. Second, the Rothschild family suffered heavy losses in World War I and World War II. Many of its assets in Germany, France and Italy were destroyed, and its offices in France were even nationalized after World War II. As a Jewish family, the Rothschilds suffered hard under the Nazis. In the history of the decline of the Rothschild family, it is clearly recorded that during World War II, with the support of Hitler, the German consortium annexed the companies of the Rothschild family. Hitler also used military force to destroy the very essence of the Rothschild family: the Jews. The Rothschild family was almost on the verge of collapse. Numerous family members were killed, assets embezzled, and more than two-thirds of financial institutions disappeared entirely.
Big banks in Europe and the United States, including UBS, Credit Zurich, Deutsche Bank in Switzerland, and Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley in the United States, have all gone public one after another and obtained a lot of development funds. However, the Rothschild family is still stuck in the family workshop business model of the 19th century.
In 1960, the influence of the Rothschild family tradition began to decline.
Using this favorable opportunity, the American consortium annexed almost all the assets of the Rothschild family in the United States, Australia, and Canada, and established a modern pattern of Citigroup, Morgan, and the United States. The prosperous history of the Rothschild family came to an end at the end of the 19th century. Today, Rothschild’s Youyou.com is just a small investment bank ranked ten to twenty in the world. But as a veteran financial giant, even though the Rothschild Bank has declined, the Rothschild family’s industries spread across multiple industries, and their influence cannot be underestimated.
