World Economic Forum: The Institution Behind “The Great Reset”

Steven Guinness
July 9th, 2020

In a recent article I briefly examined a number of advances that global planners made prior to the World Economic Forum’s announcement in June of a new initiative dubbed ‘The Great Reset‘. Taken together, the United Nation’s Agenda 2030, the Paris Climate Agreement, the Fourth Industrial Revolution and the Bank for International Settlement’s ‘Innovation BIS 2025‘ offer an insight into how elites want to turn the lives of every man, woman and child inside out over the course of the next decade.

Details of ‘The Great Reset‘ came as nations began to reopen their economies following a global lockdown. The extent to which Covid-19 has dominated every facet of existence – largely because of unrepentant media coverage – has encouraged people to focus exclusively on what life will be like after the virus. For many, what came before now seems inconsequential. It is anything but.

For example, three months before Covid-19 took hold, a global pandemic exercise – ‘Event 201‘ – was held in New York City which simulated the outbreak of a coronavirus that originated in Brazil. The scenario focused on a novel zoonotic virus that ‘transmitted from bats to pigs to people that eventually becomes efficiently transmissible from person to person, leading to a severe pandemic.’ Whilst initially some countries managed to control the outbreak, it ended up spreading and ‘eventually no country can maintain control‘.

The simulation culminated at the eighteen month mark with 65 million people having died and severe economic and societal repercussions. But that was not the end of it. As the scenario explained, ‘the pandemic will continue at some rate until there is an effective vaccine or until 80-90 % of the global population has been exposed. From that point on, it is likely to be an endemic childhood disease.’

Event 201 also used the exercise as an opportunity to warn that ‘the next severe pandemic will not only cause great illness and loss of life but could also trigger major cascading economic and societal consequences that could contribute greatly to global impact and suffering.’

That pandemic arrived in the shape of Covid-19, just weeks after the conclusion of Event 201.

On examining the make up of Event 201, we find that the three institutions at the forefront of the simulation were the World Economic Forum, the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security and the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.

It is through the WEF that ‘The Great Reset‘ was launched, in what the group said was in response to Covid-19. Johns Hopkins has been the go to source for the number of global infections and deaths thanks to their newly established ‘Coronavirus Resource Center‘. And then you have The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation which has been a driving force behind efforts for a vaccination to be found and disseminated worldwide.

Event 201 consisted of fifteen ‘players‘ that represented, amongst others, airlines and medical corporations. Out of these fifteen, six are direct partners of the World Economic Forum. One is the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, with the other five being Marriott International (hospitality), Henry Schein (medical distribution), Edelman (communications), NBCUniversal Media and Johnson & Johnson.

o be clear, these organisations do not all operate at the same level within the WEF. For instance, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and Johnson and Johnson are ‘Strategic Partners‘, the highest stage for a participant. Only 100 global companies are Strategic Partners, and to qualify for an invitation they must all have ‘alignment with forum values‘. Not only that, but Strategic Partners ‘shape the future through extensive contribution to developing and implementing Forum projects and championing public-private dialogue.’

Beneath the Strategic Partners are the ‘Strategic Partner Associates‘, which is the category that NBCUniversal Media fall under. Strategic Partner Associates include some of the largest businesses in the world, who are ‘actively involved in shaping the future of industries, regions and systemic issues‘. According to the WEF, associates also believe in ‘corporate global citizenship‘.

Next come the ‘Partners‘ which comprise of Marriott International, Henry Schein and Edelman. Partners are described by the WEF as ‘world class companies‘ who possess a ‘strong interest in developing systemic solutions to key challenges‘.

Finally, there are the ‘Associate Partners‘. Whilst they participate in ‘forum communities‘ and have a ‘strong interest in addressing challenges affecting operations and society at large‘, none were present at Event 201.

Every major industry in the world, be it banking, agriculture, healthcare, media, retail, travel and tourism, is directly connected to the World Economic Forum through corporate membership.

What is evident is that the deeper a corporation’s ties with the WEF, the greater its ability to ‘shape‘ the group’s agenda. Which brings us to what the WEF call their Strategic Intelligence platform – the mechanism which brings all the interests that the WEF concentrate on together.

They describe the platform as ‘a dynamic system of contextual intelligence that enables users to trace relationships and interdependencies between issues, supporting more informed decision-making‘.

As for why the WEF developed Strategic Intelligence, they say it was to ‘help you (businesses) understand the global forces at play and make more informed decisions‘.

Growing the platform is an ever present goal. The WEF are always looking for new members to become part of Strategic Intelligence by joining the ‘New Champions Community‘. But they will only allow a new organisation on board if they ‘align with the values and aspirations of the World Economic Forum in general‘. A 12 month ‘New Champions Membership‘ comes in at €24,000.

In arguing for the relevance of Strategic Intelligence, the WEF ask:

How can you decipher the potential impact of rapidly unfolding changes when you’re flooded with information—some of it misleading or unreliable? How do you continuously adapt your vision and strategy within a fast-evolving global context?

In other words, Strategic Intelligence is both an antidote to ‘fake news‘ and an assembly for corporations to position themselves as global pioneers in a rapidly changing political and technological environment. That’s the image they attempt to convey at least.

We can find more involvement from global institutions via Strategic Intelligence. The platform is ‘co-curated with leading topic experts from academia, think tanks, and international organizations‘.

Co-curators‘ are perhaps the most important aspect to consider here, given that they have the ability to ‘share their expertise with the Forum’s extensive network of members, partners and constituents, as well as a growing public audience‘.

It is safe to assume then that when co-curators speak, members and partners of the World Economic Forum listen. This in part is how the WEF’s agenda takes shape.

Who are the co-curators? At present, they include Harvard university, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Imperial College London, Oxford University, Yale and the European Council on Foreign Relations.

It was the Massachusetts Institute of Technology that in March published an article titled, ‘We’re not going back to normal‘, just as Covid-19 lockdowns were being implemented worldwide. Citing a report by fellow co-curator Imperial College London that endorsed the imposition of tougher social distancing measures if hospital admissions begin to spike, MIT proclaimed that ‘social distancing is here to stay for much more than a few weeks. It will upend our way of life, in some ways forever.’

As well as co-curators there are what’s known as ‘Content Partners‘, who the WEF say are ‘amplified by machine analysis of more than 1,000 articles per day from carefully selected global think tanks, research institutes and publishers‘.

Content partners include Harvard university, Cambridge university, the Rand Corporation, Chatham House (aka the Royal Institute of International Affairs), the European Council on Foreign Relations and the Brookings Institution.

Getting into specifics, the way Strategic Intelligence is structured means that the higher your position in the corporate fold, the more ‘platforms‘ you can be part of. Whereas Strategic Partners must be part of a minimum of five platforms, Associate Partners only have access to a single platform of their choice.

Here is a list of some of the platforms hosted by the World Economic Forum:

  • COVID Action Platform
  • Shaping the Future of Technology Governance: Blockchain and Distributed Ledger Technologies
  • Shaping the Future of the New Economy and Society
  • Shaping the Future of Consumption
  • Shaping the Future of Digital Economy and New Value Creation
  • Shaping the Future of Financial and Monetary Systems
  • Shaping the Future of Technology Governance: Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning
  • Shaping the Future of Trade and Global Economic Interdependence
  • Shaping the Future of Cities, Infrastructure and Urban Services
  • Shaping the Future of Energy and Materials
  • Shaping the Future of Media, Entertainment and Culture

As we will look at in a follow up article, ‘The Great Reset‘ is made up of over 50 areas of interest that are formed of both ‘Global Issues‘ and ‘Industries‘, which in turn are all part of the WEF’s Strategic Intelligence platform.

Corporate membership is essential for the World Economic Forum to spread its influence, but in the end every single member is in compliance with the agenda, objectives, projects and values of the WEF. These take precedent over all else.

Also in concurrence with the WEF are the organisation’s Board of Trustees. Three of these include the current Managing Director of the IMF, Kristalina Georgieva, European Central Bank President Christine Lagarde and former Bank of England governor Mark Carney. The Trilateral Commission are also represented amongst the trustees through Larry Fink and David Rubenstein.

To add some historical context to the WEF, the group dates back to 1971 when it was originally founded as the European Management Forum. At the time the conflict in Vietnam was raging, social protest movements were building and the United States was about to relinquish the gold standard. By 1973 when the post World War Two Bretton Woods system collapsed and the Trilateral Commission was formed, the Forum had widened its interest beyond just management to include economic and social issues. From here onwards political leaders from around the world began to receive invitations to the institution’s annual meeting in Davos.

The World Economic Forum is classified today as the ‘International Organisation for Public-Private Cooperation‘, and is the only global institution recognised as such. It is in this capacity that the forum ‘engages the foremost political, business, cultural and other leaders of society to shape global, regional and industry agendas.’

Like how the Bank for International Settlements acts as a forum to bring central banks together under one umbrella, the WEF plays the same role by uniting business, government and civil society.

The WEF declare themselves as being a ‘catalyst for global initiatives‘, which is accurate considering ‘The Great Reset‘ agenda originates at the WEF level. And it is initiatives like ‘The Great Reset‘ and the ‘Fourth Industrial Revolution‘ which the WEF say are distinguished by ‘the active participation of government, business and civil society figures‘.

The Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR) narrative was developed out of the World Economic Forum back in 2016. The WEF have confidently asserted that because of 4IR, ‘over the next decade, we will witness changes tearing through the global economy with an unprecedented speed, scale and force. They will transform entire systems of production, distribution and consumption‘.

Not only that, but the world is on the verge of witnessing ‘more technological change over the next decade than we have seen in the past 50 years.’

The group now plan to use ‘The Great Reset‘ as their theme for the 2021 annual meeting in Davos as a vehicle for advancing the 4IR agenda. 4IR is marketed as a technological revolution, where advancement in all the sciences ‘will leave no aspect of global society untouched.’

And like their global counterparts, such as the BIS and the Trilateral Commission, the WEF nurture their agenda gradually and seek to maintain their focus on the long term rather than ‘the emergencies of the day‘.  In their own words, ‘success is measured not only in terms of immediate results – we understand that real progress takes time and sustained commitment.’

For my next article we will look into the specifics of ‘The Great Reset‘ agenda as well as what global planners are seeking to achieve out of Covid-19.

UNW Weekly Report (12/14 to 12/21): Pentagon Pentakill, Financial Reset, and Obama’s Absent Endorsement

By Ryan DeLarme
December 20th, 2019

Happy Holidays gang. Lets begin this weeks report with more news on the increasing number of sudden, high-profile resignations which seem to correlate to this quiet war we find ourselves in. Perhaps the most notable recent activity has taken place at the Pentagon, where the resignation of Ambassador Tina Kaidanow marks the fifth high-level official at the Defense Department to either exit or announce plans to leave the Pentagon within the last couple weeks.

Aaron Mehta at Defense News reported Wednesday that:

“On Dec. 12, it was announced that Randall Schriver, the Pentagon’s top Asia policy official, would be leaving shortly. One day later, on Dec. 13, Jimmy Stewart, who served as the acting undersecretary of defense for personnel and readiness since October 2018, announced his retirement from federal service. And on Tuesday, Defense News reported that Steven Walker, who served as the 21st head of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, will leave the position on Jan. 10 for an industry job. And earlier today the department confirmed that Kari Bingen, principal deputy undersecretary of defense for intelligence, will also resign as of Jan. 10.”

Other notable resignations this week included: Luigi Ventura, the Vatican’s Ambassador to France who has resigned amid allegations of molestation, Steve Louden, CFO at Roku Inc USA, and Steven Walker has stepped down as Director of DARPA (As always, you can keep track yourself HERE).

In financial news, former Rockefeller henchman Henry Kissinger met with Xi Jinping in November and proceeded to proclaim, along with the IMF, that Trump needs to make a deal with China stat. There’s been a great effort to make it seem as if the entire global economic system is slowing because of tariffs and the trade war with China, but the truth is that the fiat central banking system has run its course and is beginning its death rattle. 

In related news, there’s a growing market consensus that it will be impossible to keep the current U.S. stock market bubble going much longer. Mainstream publications like The Wall Street Journal are now saying that corporations are cooking their books to make profits look bigger than they are, which is a pretty solid indicator that the end is near.


The Central Banking establishment and company are traditionally not fans of reporters, cameras, or transparency, but would much prefer to stay behind the curtains. Hollywood and the mainstream want people to think that the richest individuals are folks like Oprah or Bezos or Bill Gates, but the fortunes of these individuals pale in comparison to the off-the-books wealth of dynastic banking families and other criminal enterprises. You never hear about the people who have steered global finance for centuries, and it certainly would seem that this is by design.

It’s easy to talk about the impending economic collapse in a sort of “Doom and Gloom” fashion, but it will most likely be a catalyst for tremendous cultural growth worldwide. Many of our readers have likely heard whispers of an economic reset or a “one time jubilee” of all debt, it’s actually something many of us have been hearing from alternative sources for the last few years but is now becoming a mainstream discussion. 


In BREXIT news, Boris Johnson is making moves to push legislation and has also called for an urgent Electoral Commission probe into none other than George Soros’ Open Society Foundation after putting money towards a campaign to block BREXIT at the ballot box. We’ll just have to wait and see what happens.

On to the Machiavellian madness of the modern day. It may sound cruel, but might not be too off the mark, to say that individuals who hang on the words of their preferred media conglomerates for their daily dose of confirmation bias are essentially similar to children who still think professional wrestling is real and unscripted. We are likely all guilty of this STILL with our attachments to individuals in the alternative media, so we try to cover a spectrum of alternative opinions that are not always in agreement. The highly polarized, partisan news outfits, whichever side you find yourself on, would like to make you think that you are the good guys and the other side are the baddies. This of course isn’t true, and the fact so many grown folks carry out their lives in this fashion could be seen as a testament to our lack of growth as a society. Is this lack of growth natural or by design?

Let’s consider what people of note have historically said about the true power in Washington.

In a letter, dated November 23rd, 1933, the newly elected President Franklin D. Roosevelt wrote to Woodrow Wilson’s top adviser, Colonel Edward House, “The real truth of the matter is , as you and I know, that a financial element in the large centers has owned the government since the days of Andrew Jackson.” Roosevelt himself was closely connected to many prominent members of the secret societies of his day, and once remarked, “In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, you can bet it was planned that way.” Roosevelt’s son Elliot once wrote “There are within our world perhaps a dozen organizations which shape the courses of our various destinies as rigidly as the regularly constituted governments.

I’ve chosen to include these preceding paragraphs so that folks might consider that a shadow government or “Deep State” is not some new thing (See our article on the History of Conspiratorial Powers). The system has been rigged for a long, long time, and there was NEVER a moment where these conditions ceased to be. Currently the strategy seems to be Divide and Conquer, and the artillery used are things like race, gender, political affiliation, and sexual orientation.

Last week Obama said in an interview “While women have their flaws they are better than us Men” he went on to argue that “Older men in power are largely responsible for many of the world’s most pressing problems… I’m absolutely confident that for two years, if every nation on earth was run by women you would see a significant improvement across the board…”. So let’s pick this apart. Honestly, I might’ve naively agreed with this blanket statement if it felt more sincere and less like a buttering up of the public for Michelle Obama (possibly Hillary) to slide into the race for presidency. Keep in mind that Obama has yet to endorse a candidate.

In the event that either of them wins the election, it wouldn’t be a victory for women so much as a victory for the Central Bank, for the CIA, for Hollywood, and for the cluster of corporations and criminal factions that have maintained a death grip on DC for generations. Obama may be right, maybe if the nations of the world were run by women we would see improvement across the board, but not women who are just puppets to the true patriarchy.

We’ll leave off with what sounds like a pretty positive morsel of hearsay from last weeks Fulford Report: “A meeting is being arranged, possibly for mid-January, between the British Commonwealth, the P2 Freemasons, the Pentagon, and Asian secret societies to discuss the establishment of a World Planning Agency with an annual budget of $1 trillion.  The establishment of this agency, a jubilee, disclosure of the secret space program, and a financial reset are going to be discussed at this meeting, which P2, British, and Asian sources all agree about.
