- "We are grateful to the Washington Post, the New
York Times, Time Magazine and other great publications whose directors

elite and world bankers is surely preferable to the national autodetermination
practiced in past centuries."

meeting in Baden, Germany (a meeting also attended by then-Governor Bill
Clinton and by Dan Quayle
