37. Your post shows how amazingly intertwined these financial institutions are and how much they can
Edited on Sat Oct-22-11 09:24 PM by 1776Forever
change their chameleon names in a very short time. It is no wonder that they can manipulate the market the way they do and get away with so much without being caught! I have never heard of them but wikipedia says they are the world's largest asset manager corporation:

BlackRock, Inc. is an American multinational investment management corporation and the world's largest asset manager.<3> BlackRock is headquartered in Manhattan, New York City, New York, United States and is the leading provider of investment, advisory, and risk management solutions. The company acquired Barclays Global Investors in December 2009, solidifying BlackRock's position as the largest investment manager in the world.<4>

Founded in 1988, initially offering fixed income products, BlackRock has become a financial powerhouse while remaining out of the public eye. According to Ralph Schlosstein, CEO of Evercore Partners, a NY-based investment bank: BlackRock today is one of, if not the, most influential financial institutions in the world.<5>
